You are maybe right but what I mean is that collecting suggestions about a reorganisation of this page could really help a lot. I'll make a new topic for that.

I have a suggestion for you.
Let's say I want to see the article about Rauk:

currently: click on "Quests" -> click on "Rauk the Alchemist" in table of content -> click on the link "Rauk the Alchemist" below the caption "Rauk the Alchemist" -> get the article

better (IMO): click on "Quests" -> click on "Rauk the Alchemist" -> get the article

Looking at the article I agree that the way it is structured right now is indeed quite stupid.

Even the auto-generated page http://wiki.themanaworld.org/index.php/Category:Quest manages to structure the exact same information in a more accessible way.

Having separate headlines for every single quest and then put nothing under the headlines except for a link to another article is a bad idea. I also think that just having the names of the quests on the page and no other information is not very newbie-friendly. When you are a newbie, want information about quests and see a 50 point list, you need to narrow it down. You need to know which of these quests you can really do right now. You also want to know which quests are worth doing for you because you have use for their quest reward. Seeing only the quest names doesn't really help you with this.

I would suggest to categorize quests either by region or level range and then put a table with the remaining information under each headline.

Another possibility would be to put links to all quest articles into a table with the possibility to order the table by level range, region and quest reward.

I have 2 big ideas, please vote which one is best.

Table format
I will order the quests page by using a table which will contain few categories :
  • Not any level required (1+)
  • Low level (1 - 20)
  • Medium Level (21 - 55)
  • High Level (56+)
I will only put links and not any title in this table.

Detailed
I will put the link directly into the title + I will put a little description of each quest (may take some time), it will indicate the level you should be to be confortable doing this quest.

Best regards,
Ali-G

I like the table, but what about puttting it as point 2?
Also the daily quests could be all on the same side, as the quests are for the magic quests.

Beside of that I really like your update. :)

the reOrganized wiki looks nice and well done, but i think it would also be nice to have a page with ALL quests on it, so you have a option to either look at the organized one to pick the one you want, or to just browse through all the quests on one page like before.
Is this possible to put in?
