From YPPedia

Need help or have problems, post here! Yes i will upload pictures.


Ahoy there! Just a word in your ear: even if a crew or flag has disbanded, we like to leave their encyclopedia entry in place, just for posterity and so that articles that link to them don't suddenly break. Your edit has been reverted for this reason... nothing personal, we just like to look to the future. Fair winds! --Belthazar451 20:30, 24 May 2008 (PDT)

When moving articles

Be sure to click on "What links here" from the toolbox (should be bottom left of the screen when using most YPPedia skins) to see which articles need to be updated to link to the renamed article. When the Legion of Doom article was moved to Kingdom Of Illyria, this made 34 articles (currently) point to a redirection page. I can help you change some of the links which need to be updated. -- Faulkston 03:51, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

I would like to thank you for helping me get all this in order i know it can be chaos when moving pages sometimes and really it was my first time to do so. i will make sure every page gets updated to the new name. ~fair winds, Empire of viridian~

Marking defunct crews as Disbanded

Ahoy! Unless you have confirmed that a crew has disbanded by talking to the captain in-game, please do not alter the infobox by adding the |reason parameter. There are other possibilities such as the crew merging into another crew. Fair winds! --Addihockey (talk/contribs) 02:55, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Ahoy! Just some clarification, defunct doesn't mean delete. We still keep the page so links from other pages don't suddenly break. If the yoweb page doesn't exist anymore, there is still the possibility of the crew having merged into another. Fair winds! --Addihockey (talk/contribs) 03:04, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
If ye check the previous revision that I saved, you can see that it doesn't supply a link to the yoweb page. FYI, this is the definition for disband, and this is the definition for merge. Fair winds! --Addihockey (talk/contribs) 03:34, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
If I'm "catching your drift" then you're saying that if a crew is merged it still retains it's original crewid? It doesn't - nothing changes except for the adding of pirates to the crew which is receiving the merge. The old crew yoweb page is deleted and replaced with "No such crew". --Addihockey (talk/contribs) 03:34, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
There is no proof that the crew has merged or disbanded. That's why I never added the |reason= parameter. --Addihockey (talk/contribs) 03:53, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
