Cleaning out the wiki (in General)

QBPixel Sage July 16 2008 2:54 AM EDT

So I was wiki-ing the Shield of Capacity, and I found this:

No penalties to Direct Damage Spells cast by the wearer.
No penalties to Enchant Offense Spells or to Enchant Defense Spells cast by the wearer.
No penalty to DX and Skills with 1-handed melee weapons or with 2-handed melee weapons.
Negative 5 to Unarmed Combat (UC).

Is it really necessary to have 4 lines describing it's penalties, when "Negative 5 to Unarmed Combat" is all that's needed? I think we should find a way to optimize penalty description. Thoughts?

Last I checked, the Monk page was quite out of date and in need of an overhaul (ie. It says all over the place that one cannot use a power shield with a tattoo).

SoC has the same penalty with 2h weapons as all other shields, now.

No strong opinion on penalty verbosity. If that's the way the majority of pages are let's leave it that way.

I think it's better this way so that people know there are no penalties. Otherwise people might think that the information is just missing from the wiki.

Daz... you can't use a powershield with a tattoo... silly you :P

There shield penalties corrected (only on the main areas of the wiki, I didn't get any of the strategies and armor sets with that). Power shield references deleted, all of them as far as I know except for one that treated it in a historical manner. Ammo referenced deleted again except for one that treated it historically. Thats enough editing for me for a while. =)

Oh and since the equip page still links to "Power Rating" and "Minion Power Rating" I'm thinking that we should leave those wiki pages until the links are changed (they only link to the main pages "Power" and "Minion Power" anyway), but people keep deleting them so obviously some disagree with me? This also is the problem with the "Clan bonus" page. The fightlogs link to the "Clan bonus" page in the wiki.

I not so recently reworked the Armor pages... there is so much stuff in the Wiki that needs remodeling, but I havent the time to sift through ti all =(

Since Jonathan apparently wants all penalties (or lack thereof) to be listed, we should probably fix up pages like AG's and EG's.

To clarify what Jon wants:

"No strong opinion on penalty verbosity."

Well, he did say "If that's the way the majority of pages are let's leave it that way." And I think the majority are that way, not sure.
