Fact-checking resources

Salutations! Thanks for all your help with VII's new information, it's been a real sore spot for the site for years and I'm glad someone decided to pitch in! These sites here are the ones I use to double check myself when I don't feel like spelunking through countless gamefaqs boards. Auto translate can be a little rough, but once you get the hang of things its easy to discern the information. Once again thanks a ton for your help!

General information

http://wikiwiki.jp/dqdic3rd/ Character ages, nicknames, how often monsters appear, developer quotes, etc. Only thing they lack are pictures.

Hard data

http://www7b.biglobe.ne.jp/~dqwiz/ The one most regarded by the gamefaqs crowd. Its ceased updates as of VII's remake, but covers monster resistances, stats, equipment price, you name it.

https://www.d-navi.info/ Absolutely the best resource for IX's data, providing all the calculations for skills and spells, as well as hidden equipment stats.

http://dq-gh.com/ Not quite as detailed as Navi, but they do provide images for most games, and it pays to have additional sources

Happy New Year!

2016 has been a rollercoaster of a year for just about everyone on the planet, but at least the wiki is doing fine! Thanks for helping out with all you've done, and here's to a freshly wrapped new year! (Follower of Light (talk) 20:07, 31 December 2016 (CST))

Image problem?

I have not been uploading anything anymore, since when I try to upload a new image, I am automatically signed out. I can't figure out how to remain signed in, either. Also, my "Dragon Quest News" feed does not show up on the main page. Okay, apparently I CAN upload images, so long as the images are brand-new, not uploading over a pre-existing image (which, strangely enough, I've always been able to do until now). If I load up a page with an existing image, I am automatically signed out and am of course not given permission to upload anything. Weird, huh?

User:Follower of Light thought maybe I recently installed a script blocking add on or something to my browser and forgot to allow certain scripts. Follower of Light then also tried uploading a brand new image and was promptly booted out. When Follower of Light tried to log back in he was told he was already signed in, and that he was not accepting cookies from the site. The newsfeed is also down for him. Are you aware of this problem? - icysugarspike (talk) 13:26, 4 February 2017 (CST)
I've been noticing the same thing! I don't know why it does that.. I am able to upload, but as soon as the image gets uploaded, it "signs you out". But as soon as you go to another page, it is back to normal. The feed is not showing up for me either on the front page. Aphelion (talk) 13:30, 4 February 2017 (CST)
Well, until this gets to the attention of Zenithian or FlyingRagnar (I wrote to them), I'm hanging up my hat. :( - 09:01, 5 February 2017 (CST)
I'm also experiencing this problem. Until it is fixed by an admin, a temporary fix is to replace every "." in the filename with "%2E".
Example
Instead of:
http://dragon-quest.org/wiki/File:DQIV_Pocus_Poppet.png
Use:
http://dragon-quest.org/wiki/File:DQIV_Pocus_Poppet%2Epng
It seems that using this method changes to images are not visible instantly but do go through. Hope this helps :) TheCodingGamer (talk) 19:36, 5 February 2017 (CST)
Taking this moment to thank you for uploading those PS1 DQIV character images. I know how rare they are, probably never having been uploaded before in a state where we can really appreciate them. The Dragon Quest image collection is nearing completion, thanks to you and all of us. Have a great day (you made mine!) and keep those Toriyamasterpieces coming! - icysugarspike (talk) 08:30, 23 February 2017 (CST)
It's possible it could be an imitator, but I tend to think they are by Toriyama himself, just with the original drawing fleshed out the rest of the way by computer (someone in the SE art department, etc.). Anyway you slice it, great contributions! - icysugarspike (talk) 13:34, 23 February 2017 (CST)
I was told these are part of that set's release. If you have these any larger, it would be much appreciated! :)

I've checked, and it seems all we are missing are the Borya and Hero/Heroine poses. If they exist and/or time permits, of course. - icysugarspike (talk) 16:37, 24 February 2017 (CST)
Bravissimo, you are a real gem!!! :) - icysugarspike (talk) 15:45, 25 February 2017 (CST)

Site Feedback

Hey there, just wanted to say thanks for contributing so much to the wiki over the years. I'm sure you are probably aware it has been migrated to a new host. Everything should be up and working great at this point. Please let me know if you find things that are broken or could use attention. We are on a much better host now, so hopefully a lot of past problems are no longer an issue. --FlyingRagnar (talk) 00:51, 1 October 2017 (EDT)
