Thanks to Sato(xK) for the original thread in the AQW Wiki.
The reason why this thread exists is because in the past, we were never consistent with basically everything. Later on, we mixed up note usages which resulted in a large amount of confusion. In order to prevent similar problems in the future, we decided to officially state which is which so our notes will be solid and thorough. This thread is for recall, beneficial and informative purposes.
Note: If there appears to be a note that is not on here or if there is any problem, feel free to contact myself or any staff member.
List of all Notes in this thread:
- Also See's
- Color Custom
- Previously Called
- Previously Free Player / Member
- Previously / Previously Not
This list does not compose of every note in the Wiki.
**Note:** Also see [[[Page Name Goes Here]]].
**Note:** Also see [[[Wet Suit Armor]]].
For two or more:
- Also see:
- [[[Page Name Goes Here]]].
- [[[Page Name Goes Here]]].
- Also see:
- [[[Snow Tiger Head (Member)]]].
- [[[Snow Tiger Head (SC)]]].
If you have not noticed, Also See's generally go last in note order because it's not important if you compare to others.
In order for Also See's to apply for a page. They must be either:
Discontinued subject linked to new subject.
If an armor has some sort of relation to the garb that is worn by NPCs or Monsters
For listing, it may go to however long it needs to. Beware of having around 10 or more also see's. The reason is because a global list is created to prevent page expansion.
There may be an occasion where the global list does not happen simply because the reason being that the list is too general. (Example: Blue Cape) If you are not sure, contact a staff member.
Clicktoactivate - Associated with clicktoactivate
This one bends to several directions. Usually, we do not add the note, but we add another image to display what the item looks like when clicked.
If the image has a complex spot on where to click in order to change, add a note or a picture that can indicate where to click.
If there are no pictures showing the animation, add a note on a choice of your wording.
**Note:** Click to activate or deactivate item animation.
If the item has an animation that eventually returns back to its normal version.
**Note:** Click to activate item animation.
If the item has many versions attached to it.
**Note:** Click to change between versions.
If the image tabs have specific names. (Example of non-specific names would be: "1", "2", "Version 2")
**Note:** Click to change between the (Specific Tab Name) and (Specific Tab Name).
Color Custom - Associates with colorcustom
List of all Color Properties:
**Note:** Color Custom to (Color Property) Color.
Because we like to be specific, it's always best to indicate which parts are Color Custom. If you are having problems, contact a staff member and they may assist you for identifying the part that is Color Custom.
At times, the item's description may contain the Color Custom details. If the detail is not specific enough, then add the note.
If two or more Color Custom properties:
- Color Custom to (First Color Custom Property)
- Color Custom to (Second Color Custom Property)
If the item appears to have more than one Color Custom property; list them all, and place them just like how the list did above.
For Hairs, we do not consider them as Color Custom parts because most of them are technically Color Custom to Hair Color.
These generally fall under the mission pages, and never the item pages.
**Note:** This mission can only be completed **once** a day.
Or if it's a global note as in referring the entire page or the entire set of a section.
**Note:** These missions can only be completed **once** a day.
Reminder that these notes are done separately if the mission qualifies all conditions.
Must - Associates with anything that requires a specific mission or set of missions in order or a promotional offer to access
**Note:** Must have completed [[[A set of Missions]]] to access this [Shop / Screen].
If there is a certain mission:
**Note:** Must have completed the '[[[Specific Mission]]]' mission to access this [Shop / Screen].
If you are required to complete a certain mission to purchase an item from a shop.
**Note:** Must have completed the '[[[Specific Mission]]]' mission to purchase.
**Note:** Must have purchased [the / a] (Promotional Offer) [Location of purchase, Etc.] in order to access this shop.
You'll have to word this on your own because there could be a variety of ways on how a promotional offer works.
There are additional info that can be included such as the time frame, Etc.
Parody - Associates with parody
**Note:** This [Item / NPC / Monster / Etc.] is a parody of (Parody of the Subject).
If it's the description only:
**Note:** Description is a parody of (Parody of the Subject).
Now, Parody is indeed straining because there can never be consistency in this. The quotes are just roots, or openings for a parody note. Wherever it leads is within your decisions, and possibly staff as well.
It is recommended that you link the parody subject to a reliable source where it contains factual information. (Sites like Wikipedia, IMDb, Etc.)
Use quotation marks, bold, italics, when or where necessary.
If the parody content refers to inappropriate material, do not link or reference. (Even by all means, not tagging with 'parody')
Above all else, contact staff for questions on this type of note.
**Note:** Previously called **"Page's Previous Name"**.
**Note:** Previously called **"Swift Justice"**.
If the subject has been renamed twice:
**Note:** Previously called **"Most Recent Previous Name"** and then **"2nd Recent Previous Name"**.
If it has been renamed more than twice:
**Note:** Previously called **"Most Recent Previous Name"**, **"2nd Recent Previous Name"** and **"3rd Recent Previous Name"**.
The key here is to list Latest to Earliest.
Previously Free Player / Member
For something that was previously available to Free Players:
**Note:** Previously available to Free Players.
For something that was previously Member.
**Note:** Previously Member Only.
Previously / Previously Not - Can associate with a variety with the exception of the above Previously mentioned.
**Note:** Previously / Previously Not (Whatever it was Before).
This can be open floor to many situations. Below are a couple of examples where this may be used:
If the weapon type has been changed to another type:
**Note:** Previously a / an [Item Type].
**Note:** Previously an axe.
If the item is no longer color custom or it was not color custom before:
**Note:** Previously [not] Color Custom.
This excludes "Previously Non-SC" or "Previously SC" because the Price: and Sellback: already explains it.
Requires - Associates with Factions
**Note:** Requires Rank [Rank Number] [[[(Faction's Name) Faction | (Faction's Name)]]].
**Note:** Requires Rank 4 [[[Evil Faction | Evil]]].
**Note:** Still available for owners of [[[Item]]].
Used - Associates with mergeitem and missionitem
For a Mission situation:
**Note:** Used in the '[[[Mission Page Link | Mission's Name]]]' mission.
If used in more than two missions with the same names:
- Used in the following missions:
- '[[[Mission Page Link | Mission's Name]]]' (NPC 1).
- '[[[Mission Page Link | Mission's Name]]]' (NPC 2).
If the Mission Page just has one mission or if the item is used in every mission on that page:
**Note:** Used in the [[[Mission Page Link]]].
If the item merges more than two items in a particular shop:
**Note:** Used to merge items in the [[[Merge Shop's Name]]] shop.
If the item is only used to merge one item:
**Note:** Used to merge [[[Item Name]]].
- Used to merge:
- [[[Item Name]]].
- [[[Item Name]]].
We capped the limit to two if both items are in the same shop.
However, there are no limits if the items has no connection to each other.
As always, contact staff or myself if there is an issue. I intend on getting everyone to at least familiarize themselves with notes. There may be some notes where it just has to be discussed, but that's totally acceptable. I would understand if it becomes a bit difficult to follow, but worry less since staff can correct things and may state what is wrong. But again, contact us or post below if anything bothers you.
