Yeah, it was a random post that I had just saved the text of it into notepad for later retrieval.  So didn't have all the other information needed to make it a saved post article. [[User:DRIZZT-12|Adam]] <sup>[[User talk:DRIZZT-12|talk]]</sup> 20:40, 7 September 2007 (EDT)
 
 
:Some suggestions: The Alchemy verb pages should all be covered under [[ALCHEMY (verb)]].  There's no need for an ALCHEMY SIMMER, ALCHEMY BOIL, et cetera.  Second, not every skill needs a link in the table of contents.  Instead of using headers, use a definition list (lines that start with a semicolon followed by a line that starts with a colon).  I admit that I need to change the way I wrote some of the Rogue Guild skill articles.  I will say this though: good on you for moving the list of ingredients to their own page.  Lists like that do not belong in a main article.  However, when making lists, try to add the [[:Category:Lists|lists category]].
 
 
:In general, try not to use headers unless there's a significant amount of information to put under the header.  IE: the fame and experience header probably isn't entirely necessary, unless there's a significant amount of information that can be put there.  If you want to put this somewhere, perhaps make a more general header such that more information can be written under it.  For example, you could title the header: Rewards of Alchemy.  Then you could list fame and experience, as well as the other benefits that may occur from training in Alchemy.
 
 
:I say all this stuff, but don't let it be a discouragement.  It is nothing more than constructive criticism.  Other than these few comments, it is well-written and necessary information. - [[User:BELATHUS|Andy]] <sup>[[User talk:BELATHUS|talk]]</sup> 00:13, 16 September 2007 (EDT)

Um... the best way to state where a source came from is using a ref tag... and if you're going to source a post, it may be wise to make it a saved post, then link it using ref tags. - Andy talk 18:08, 7 September 2007 (EDT)
