Bug Tracker

Out of curiosity, is there a reason why you monitor so many bugs on the tracker? I ask because each time you do so, the bug gets marked as having been Recently Modified even though no meaningful changes have been made. --Quietust 16:13, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Curiosity. I didn't realize it marked it as modified; I'll stop watching bugs so often. -- Khym Chanur 16:47, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
Rotted away stack still leaves proper amount of shells though

Plural of dwarf

Hi Khym Chanur,

In this game the correct plural actually is "dwarves". You can see that from the line "[NAME:dwarf:dwarves:dwarven]" in the raws for Dwarf. Toady's followed an unofficial fantasy convention that I think started with Tolkien, who similarly used "elves" instead of the formally correct "elfs".

Also, the wiki rules say that, when the game uses a particular spelling of a term, the same spelling should be used on the wiki. In fact, Quietust actually had his bot replace all occurrences of "dwarfs" with "dwarves" a while back, and did some manual cleanup as well. --Ral 19:10, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Re: Pop-up ads

There really shouldn't be any pop up ads. I can have Briess look into it and see if it was something that wasn't supposed to be there, however, is it possible that you've been infected with some form of adware? Emi [T] 09:51, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

re: "Indent with space" box should be monospaced

Your browser's font settings must be ignoring the css, which for the <pre> tags definitely specifies monospace fonts (and is how I presume most people, myself included, on the wiki are seeing it). Are you using monobook (aka the default skin)? Emi [T] 01:37, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

What browser is that anyway? Emi [T] 02:22, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
