    Very good but:

    Magic item properties:

    1) should include clothing/hats/glasses/artifacts in the lists
    1a) and/or include a column with the artifacts that go above/beyond normal caps
    2) Mage Weapon - exceptions include staff of power (-15), staff of the magi (-0), staff of pyros (-0), I seem to recall another but it is escaping me
    3) "random summoner" the description is misleading -- it is a random creature summoned, not a named creature.
    4) self repair -- according to UO there is a chance the item will regain durability when it takes damage, in the amount of the SR. I don't think they ever told us what the chance is (I assume 50/50).
    5) skill bonus -- various artifacts and craftables have skill bonuses, should be noted (spell woven britches, singing axe,melisande's hatchet,etc)
    6) slayer -- for talimans, it adds the percentage listed, not double damage
    7) UBWS - should state that bows/archery are not applicable to this property
    8) Velocity -- according to the site, it is # tiles X 3 in physical, max of 30 points extra damage

    Question, is stratics also hosting a contest for a beta key? and if so can we get a link?

    EDIT: found it, Petra aparently knew I would ask.

    1, 2, 5) Artifacts (and special craftables) by their nature tend to spawn with properties that break the normal item property rules, if we listed every single exception we would have to list Most of all the artifacts available, it'd be redundant with the artifact page.

    3) Yea, that could be clearer

    6) you're thinking of the % killer property which is also listed on the page.

    7) It does, should change that soon

    8) Will check to verify that and add it if needed.

    Thanks for the constructive criticisms though. :)
    Petra's pretty set on getting this site updated and any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

    oki, thanks. I think I got a bit carried away making that. The top description does say 'normally spawning/crafted items' I should probably make a separate linked page for special cases like mark of travesty, staff of magi, song woven mantle etc.
    I just found myself a whole load more work to do didn't I? :(
