Beware of impostor, possible identity theft.

To whom it may concern,

We -- the Vana'diel Parent-Teacher Association -- have been made aware of one (possibly one-and-a-half) individuals claiming to have no association with THE Spicyryan have been galavanting about like a veritable charlatan, sullying the good name of a dead man. Our bi-weekly graveside vigils cannot continue until we know that the Good and Faithful Servant has not risen again. We appreciate all of your support during this troubling time. Together, we are,

Faithfully, VPTA

(post-scriptaru - those who purchased the premium-tier of our crowdfunding campaign can rest assured that the ashes you had pressed into a diamond truly are from the remains of the Servant; please cease pursuing litigation) -- 16:23, 7 February 2022‎ User:Pavlovian

  • Was this to me or the other Spicyryan? --Spicyryan (talk) 20:47, 7 February 2022 (EST)

Quickstart Guide Contribution

I've been following your quickstart guide and it's awesome, but is it possible to contribute to it? -- 22:40, 8 February 2022‎ User:Ez2nv

  • Suggestions are welcome, but no, the guide is not open to edits. --Spicyryan (talk) 23:03, 8 February 2022 (EST)

Levels 99-119 Step 1 Noticed the link to Mythic Weapon Skills that you intended instead goes to Weapon Skill. Would be a minor edit to fix, I volunteer to correct the link. Alexeina (talk) 08:05, 28 July 2022 (EDT)

  • There is no mythic WS page. So without checking it's likely just named that to link to the WS page. --Spicyryan (talk) 09:11, 28 July 2022 (EDT)

Graphics Enhancement Guide

Inside the section A Note on Paths Used I noticed that the Directory structure of FFXI is the pre-2019 Installer version.
Figured it would be good to indicate examples of pre and post 2019 installer directories.
I jumped the gun and did an update to the page but reversed it after noticing the header.

Would you like me to make the update? -- Alexeina (talk) 19:47, 16 July 2022 (EDT)

Sure! Thanks for checking, and for updating it. --Spicyryan (talk) 21:31, 16 July 2022 (EDT)

Fishing page

Can you figure out why the tables are misaligned? I wanted to add more but want that fixed first. Kegfreak

Please sign your name by typing ~~~~

  • Which page? The Fishing/Zone source or the actual zone pages? --Spicyryan (talk) 16:44, 9 February 2023 (EST)

I want to spend a day and add all the zones, but you can see the tables are starting to misalign. --Kegfreak (talk) 15:43, 10 February 2023 (EST)

  • Thanks for doing a ton of the fishing tables. I can always fix any minor alignment issues later. --Spicyryan (talk) 14:37, 13 February 2023 (EST)

User page item sets

I’ve been trying to input all my item sets onto my user page, but it’s a little unwieldy to have them all under one tab. Is it possible to put each job’s item sets in its own tab/collapsible menu within a tab? Also, is it possible to use the guide equipment set templates for user page item sets? I would like to add some collapsible notes after each set. Thank you! --Favre (talk) 15:23, 7 August 2023 (UTC)

  • I will look at changing that up and get back to you on that. Yes, you are able to use that template on the page as well. --Spicyryan (talk) 16:52, 7 August 2023 (UTC)

Please move

Please move to It should be Abraxas, it's Abraxas in game. --Shiyo (talk) 17:07, 25 October 2023 (UTC) Shiyo

"Blindness" vs "Blind_(Status)

Should Blind_(Status) be renamed to Blindness like Paralysis? --Shiyo (talk)Shiyo

Moved the page to "Blindness".

Dark Mode

Good Morning, I'm wondering if there is a way to change the background colour behind the text (or the text colour itself) on pages when using dark mode. Currently the text is "washed out" and I need to highlight it be able to read it. One example is the Escutcheons page, 90% of it I'm unable to read without highlighting it. I'm just wondering if its possible to "adjust" this.

Thanks in advance...

--Konashi (talk) 15:06, 18 November 2023 (UTC)

You can report issues with Dark Mode at our issue tracker. Unfortunately improving Dark Mode is a one-man job so handling the long tail of templates and pages that don't look good is a lengthy process. It's also possible to create custom CSS to override the skin's options by adding code to User:Konashi/Timelessdark.css. -- Positron (talk) 06:20, 19 November 2023 (UTC)
