Quintinity (a player city) really doesn't belong here I don't think. New category for it? Total wiki newb, so I don't know how to do it. --Nu

Added map to area template.

Possibility for users to create maps of areas. Let's see how this goes. Tried to add some guidelines but I think the rules should be more exhaustive.

Area naming

Area names seem to be a bit problematic issue here. Whenever an area article is renamed, the npc listing in it will go poof since it uses DPL. For example, when you mark |area= Clouds above Lor in Rechendak article, it automatically adds Rechendak to Clouds above Lor -article as well. For the very same reason, area names in mob articles need to be always exactly the same, including case sensitivity.

Fixing articles with a bot would ease the pain, but I don't personally think it's the best solution.

So, I guess my question is: If there is no easy way to go around this issue, what would be the best guideline in naming areas? Personally I'd go with the names in Jeskko's/Ggr's maps, since it would allow an easy way for potential crosslinking between the sites in future. The 'whereami' command often gives (strange) names that people usually don't use in their everyday language and therefor I don't think it would be the wisest way to go.

Please feel free to throw ideas, especially if you're experienced with DPL or other possible solutions.
