From Diablo Wiki
Hello folks. I'm the bloke who wrote the original median wiki on the gaming wikia (medianxl.wikia.com). The problem with porting those pages here is that I didn't realize diablowiki here doesn't have the HeadingA custom template, and I'm loath to give them up to use simple "== xyz ==" section headings. So I used a table as a kludge.
Problem with that, is that it won't generate the auto contents list like section headings would. I'm no wiki wizard, and when I looked around diablowiki's Help:Editing page is blank D: No help there. I suppose I could hardcode sections in the other pages, they'd look ok but you just won't be able to click on them. Better than nothing I guess.
Ah crap, I haven't gotten to the columned stuff yet D: It's not a big problem if diablowiki doesn't support them, but some pages will appear longer - and the main point of this introductory wiki was to give only the basics. I don't want to scare off new players with omgwtfbbq walls of text. Which I'm doing now, argh. Ok, I'll shut up.
Oh yes and we need a category for mods.

Alright, I screwed up. Created a category with a spelling mistake ("mods" was capitalized). There was no way to rename or move it, so I had to recreate it. However, the original one remains - how do I get rid of it?

Gonna over the 3 remaining pages. The troublesome ones, i.e. mercs, class & skills, and cube recipes. I just remembered I hardcoded the bgcolors in those tables though. And there's a truckload of them. Argh.

Wow, this thing is still around. And with more recent edits after mine too :P Thanks guys, especially the Blizzard stuff - it's great. I just happened to check this page due to the recent Wikia issue which is causing a mass exodus from the site, and I remembered I had some old wikis on it, including this one. I'd actually forgotten that I'd ported this particular wiki here. Anyway, thanks for preserving it. It's been a long while since I touched Diablo 2 sadly, and I'm kinda busy with PS2 stuff now that I have a decent gaming laptop. Still, feel free to post here, etc etc. I also check my email albeit kinda sporadically (once a week or so). I'm actually sorta waiting for Diablo 3, heh, but iirc that's still quite a ways off even now (Dec 2010). Well, see you guys around. - Trucidation 15:07, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
