Wrote up some information about Custom Combat Script, including consult scripts for you. I think it is pretty good, but feel free to do anything with it that you like. You can move it to the In-combat Consulting page or whatever. If I left out anything of importance or I need to add more detail to some part, let me know. --Bale 10:21, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Added combat filter information and examples to adventure(). What is my next assignment? :) --Bale 11:03, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Triple equal sign means "exactly equal to" (value & type). Same result, anyways. --Heeheehee 19:42, 7 March 2010 (UTC) Apparently Mafia doesn't recognize the triple-equals sign, though. Huh. (That bit of code was copy-pasted from the seltzer example, then modified slightly) --Heeheehee 02:25, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Hey! why was this: "KoLmafia Guide: Scripting for Dummies" deleted? It was helpful -Yag 19:15, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Hey do you think you should add a link to Notepad ++? also to Bale's coloring of notepad ++. Also Category:Needs Code Sample Seems to have some stuff listed that do have code samples --Icon315 04:05, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

int clan_id() {
	string x = visit_url( "showplayer.php?who=" + my_id().to_string() );
	string clan_num = "";
	if( contains_text( x , "showclan.php?whichclan=" ) ) 	{
		matcher mat = create_matcher("whichclan\=(\\d+)",x);
		if(find(mat)) clan_num = group(mat,1);
		return clan_num.to_int();

I saw your note on my talk page, and I'm curious as to the reasoning behind the deletes. Are these pages you think need to be rewritten, or pages you think just don't need to be there at all? -Metraxis 15:05, 15 March 2010 (UTC)


Your little history seems somewhat familiar. (minus the leaving and coming back part) I, however, clearly did not go as far in restructuring as you did. I am a little sad to see the few pages I wrote rewritten, but glad to know that someone is making a concentrated effort to make things even more clearer.

In the wake of changes, must test.


How does one become an administrator? i would like to be one, that way i can delete/block spammers when you guys are not here--Icon315 20:58, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Spammers aren't a huge problem, they're just annoying. Mostly because they only seem to cause their problems at intervals rather than flooding many pages until finally stopped, so there isn't a lot of immanency to it. I'm not sure we really need more admins for this tiny wiki. However, if StDoodle disagrees he'll do something about it.
  • The way to become an admin is StDoodle decides to do it. He's about 90% in charge of everything here since he served as the guiding light showing this wiki its way to relevancy. If he thinks someone is a good candidate AND he thinks we need more help, he'd ask them.

Pretty much true, but on the other hand, there are a few permissions issues (such as external links & images) that allow "red tape removal" when you're an admin. I'll make you one if you can agree to the following guidelines:

  • fewyn's sanity comes first; as the provider of our hosting, we need to avoid causing problems. Shouldn't really ever be an issue, but it does need to be mentioned.
  • Don't start revert wars or the like. Don't delete or move pages except in cases of obvious spam. If you find factual information that you are 100% sure is wrong, change it. Otherwise, I prefer to allow what's been added to stay unless there is some discussion (usually on a talk page) first. Likewise, page moves & deletion should be discussed first in 99% of non-spam cases. This doesn't apply nearly as strictly to new information, but rather for changing someone else's edits / work.
  • The guide belongs to Sally (and the images are mostly from Bale). Anything that isn't a 100% "the facts are wrong" change should really go through her (or Bale for image additions, to keep a consistent look, unless your screenshots look nearly identical). This may change if she ever abandons the project, but while she remains active in it, she has final say on most of its content.
  • Learn & follow established standards. Mostly, this involves using the templates in existence when appropriate, and adding {{TOCright}} to pages with a table of contents. Do NOT make edits to templates without REALLY GOOD REASON or discussion.

Beyond that, I have no issue making anyone who has shown an interest & involvement in KoLmafia & this wiki into an admin. If these conditions are acceptable, just let me know and you can join the ranks. --StDoodle (#1059825) 21:54, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

    • I am somewhat new to the KoLMafia community, but i am very interested in becoming way better in these sort of things. I am no where near as good as scripting as the rest of you, but i do wish to be. So yes i have read through the guidelines and i do not have any problem with them, and i promise not to do anything against them. Signed--Icon315 22:43, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Good guidelines. I'd comment that you don't need to be so hands-off with Sally's guide since she's pretty happy to have others help with it, but it is important to keep it consistent to her tone and be considerate of her ways of doing things. --Bale 22:44, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the bump to Bureaucrat. I appreciate the expression of trust and fortunately it shouldn't be much more time consuming than the work I usually put into the wiki. I'm sorry to hear you're going through such trouble right now. Good luck with real life. --Bale 10:00, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
