Commented-out unsuccessfully done setlist[edit]

To the Admin, Atharsea, or another who understands how to work the tables...I tried my best. I have done work on a setlist that is a complete listing of Aureylian's videos on HermitCraft, although I haven't watched through and finished all the details quite yet. I have commented out what I have already done. It is listed below. Perhaps whatever is wrong is an easy fix. -- 22:52, 21 June 2013 (CEST)

Fixed it! Removed the information here to and put it at HermitCraft/Aureylian/videos. There were a couple of issues: The major issue was that you had written the first line of each database entry as "}}#set internal:videos", it needed to be "{{#set_internal:Videos" The underline and the capitalization of the database are important. New database entries don't usually show up in preview, so you have to save the page, then go back and troubleshoot. The main query was missing the line that would display the video, so I added that and the category for the page. One of the video entries was missing the closing braces on the video title, which causes it to display as text on the page (this will also happen if an inter wiki link isn't closed right). A couple had the month written as "Sept", which the database doesn't interpret as a month. In everything but references we use the three letter month abbreviation, although the database does understand the full month name too. The databases are a little finicky until you get used to them, thanks for taking the time to start working with it! --Atharsea (talk) 03:49, 22 June 2013 (CEST)
Also, if you are doing a lot of work on HermitCraft pages try writing links to people like this:
It is a little faster if you are doing a number of them! --Atharsea (talk) 04:02, 22 June 2013 (CEST)
Sorry for the late response! Thanks for the help; it is indeed really confusing. I didn't realize how finicky it really was. I will be sure to follow your advice starting other HermitCraft listings. :) -- 01:35, 3 July 2013 (CEST)
