Is there any need for this page now? Agreed, alot of terminolgy will be carried to GW2, but for something like this. Surely we should wait. And no doubt GW2G will have this up once the game comes out... --User:Nautaut (t) 08:26, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

The bit about GW2G is irrelevant, though I do agree that it isn't necessary yet. /Votes for deletion. --Naoroji User Naoroji Sigavatar.jpg I need help! 20:24, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
And like I said, there no reason to delete this. Thats why I have the red for GW2 terms linked to it alone. Here I have common MMO terms for new comers. --Knighthonor 20:32, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
How about we discuss this like adults instead of a revert war? @ Both Naut & KH --Naoroji User Naoroji Sigavatar.jpg I need help! 20:33, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
I am being mature, I hes reverting my opinion. Every person has the right to suggest a deletion. I merely put it there to open a dicussion... --User:Nautaut (t) 20:35, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Delete.. No need, create it when there is an actual game to play. -- Cyan User Cyan Light sig.jpg 20:36, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) x 2 i prefer screaming at eachother like two cats in a small barrel of dogs I Vote we keep, just because GW1 has them- gw2 is practicly speaking. a whole other game,new skills,new abilitys and shiz, its like putting the WoW acronyms on GW1W.Totaly Pointless.So Vote to keep. --Neil2250 , The Zoologist User Neil2250 sig icon5.png 20:37, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Knighthonor, seriously stop it. Just because im tagging it doesn't mean it will be deleted. It's open to dicussion. --User:Nautaut (t) 20:40, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Ehm Neil, you say its not needed but you want to keep it? What? -- Cyan User Cyan Light sig.jpg 20:42, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
i ment its totaly pointless to ged rid of it.--Neil2250 , The Zoologist User Neil2250 sig icon5.png 20:45, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
this is why I put this --->See Guild Wars 2 terminology for more details. This is a list of Universal MMO terms. For new Comers that GW2 may be their first MMO. I left that Red so all GW2 only terms could go there. You are confusing the two. So please stop.--Knighthonor 20:46, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
If this is supposed to be a list of universal MMO acronyms, I'd either suggest
1. A move to "MMO acronyms"
2. A deletion because of general irrelevance towards GW2. --Naoroji User Naoroji Sigavatar.jpg I need help! 20:49, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Ultimately having this here does no harm, and can be beneficial to some newcomers. ^^ Imo it shouldn't be deleted, simply because it does more good than harm and aside from this debate, has no negative affects. --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 20:50, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
A list of ALL MMO terms is really supposed to be on a wiki around GW2. If you want something like that, you go to wikipedia. Or another website. --User:Nautaut (t) 20:50, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
I doubt there are people who are looking for this on this wiki for a game which isn't playable because it's still in development. It is totaly pointless to list them. And Knighthonor, I don't stop because I don't flee for a proper discussion. Your reasons are like the behaviour of a little child who is moaning for candy: you want it that way, so it need to happen that way. The world (and the wiki) doesn't work like that. -- Cyan User Cyan Light sig.jpg 20:51, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Uhm.Whats the Point of deleting something that we will need in less than a year?--Neil2250 , The Zoologist User Neil2250 sig icon5.png 20:52, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Well, I suppose I understand what you're saying, Naut. And also, if there are some GW2-specific Acronyms that we find ingame, we can always recreate this page when it's needed. ^^ --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 20:53, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

(Reset indent) ^This. --Naoroji User Naoroji Sigavatar.jpg I need help! 20:54, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Well fine. Delete it. --Knighthonor 20:55, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
EDIT CONFLICT RAAAAAAAAAAAAGE, anyways yea. I suggest deleting it for now, due to it giving no real information. --User:Nautaut (t) 20:56, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
well i still go against deletion regaurdless of the little child, I Dont see the point of getting rid of something we will use in less than a year, its like chucking out underwear then wearing it a year later.totaly pointless.i must sleep now so i cannot continue this. if i see this deleted by tomoro, im gona unload some whoop-ass on the deleter.once again i state:

Whats the point of deleting something we will use in less than a year?--Neil2250 , The Zoologist User Neil2250 sig icon5.png 21:00, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
A year. 52 weeks. 365 days. Serious? Create it when the time is there. -- Cyan User Cyan Light sig.jpg 21:03, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
.*cba to go* its nto causing any why delete? --Neil2250 , The Zoologist User Neil2250 sig icon5.png 21:04, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Because it's irrelevant, and as you said, only useful in a year or so? --Naoroji User Naoroji Sigavatar.jpg I need help! 21:05, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Because GW2 could have different Acronyms and the fact that it just isn't relevant to the game yet... considering its not out yet. I say delete it, it can always be recreated when the time comes. --User Phnzdvn sig.pnghnzdvn 21:06, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
You know what? Whatever. if you guys cant see its causing no harm and saving having to do it in >year, go ahead.why should i care.--Neil2250 , The Zoologist User Neil2250 sig icon5.png 21:27, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Jesus, calm down Neil. Its just an article :P. You're acting like its a bloody baby xD --User:Nautaut (t) 21:28, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Honestly, I agree with Neil. We know these will be used, and while we can always create it later, we can also leave it as is and not have to create it later. If you can find any of these acronyms that aren't already used in most MMOs, or that we can dispute whether they'll be useful in GW2, then just remove those. The article as a whole isn't doing any harm. --Kyoshi (Talk) User Kyoshi sig.png 21:31, 3 May 2010 (UTC)


So were putting it in userspace? and a user who agrees with the deletion? No thanks. safer in mine.ive still got a page on gw1 i havent used for almost a year now.Moving to my userspace.--Neil2250 , The Zoologist User Neil2250 sig icon5.png 21:35, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Ohey, I don't really care in which userspace it is. Honestly though, it was safe in mine, I even removed the deletion tag. Just calm down, Neil xD. I'm just trying to find a solution to please both sides, for the time being. --Naoroji User Naoroji Sigavatar.jpg I need help! 21:37, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Tbh, i think it should go to a sysops userpage. It let one of them decide :P --User:Nautaut (t) 21:38, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Locked in the safe of doom now. Move=Rage Flame BBQ --Neil2250 , The Zoologist User Neil2250 sig icon5.png 21:45, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Btw. You know? This page is wrong D: 1 doesn't stand for 'ready', it stands for 'Yes'. And 2 stands for 'No'. Age of Empires II, ftw. --Naoroji User Naoroji Sigavatar.jpg I need help! 22:04, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Spamming 44... I forget what it says ofc :P --User:Nautaut (t) 22:05, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
30 is so much more epic. WOLOLOOOOOOO!! --Naoroji User Naoroji Sigavatar.jpg I need help! 22:06, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Teehee, anyways. We should really stop spamming talk pages.

SEE ANET! THIS IS WHAT HAPPENDS WHEN YOU DON'T GIVE US GW2 INFORMATION!!! Anyways, i best be off to bed. School tomorrow. Hope this gets sorted over night... --User:Nautaut (t) 22:08, 3 May 2010 (UTC)


think that's supposed to be on there as well :P Sjacie User:Sjacie 16:29, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Excuse me :>[edit]

Uhm excuse me, but I just want to ask how you can write your signature without having to copy + paste... :O If i use the "--~~~~" thing I don't have my icon or customized colours... :'( Please help! :D --HasselmannenUser Hasselmannen-Icon-01.png 09:13, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Nvm, solved it by myself! :D --HasselmannenUser Hasselmannen-Icon-01.png 09:26, 17 June 2010 (UTC)


Should we censor fuck and shit with f*** and s***? This is not American television or something. Reaper of Scythes** User Reaper of ScythesJuggernaut1.png 09:28, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Well, this is a community site, and therefore will be people of various ages here, so it's better to try to keep things at least a LITTLE censored. :) I understand GW2 will most likely be rated T, but I understand they were a bit picky about things like excessive cursing and nudity on GWWiki, sooo.... ^_^ --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 11:43, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
Hah! Censoring is for Americans, no offense. I, for one, would be against censoring, but I suppose a vote would be needed Venom20 [User_talk:Venom20] 12:30, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
^ I am against cencorshit in any form. I say uncensor them. --Unending fear 14:08, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
Since they are in my userspace... im saying un-cencoring.. --NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon5 Anti.png 15:24, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
Thrain beat us all to it >_> , but yeh. i still say we should keep it uncencored.--NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon5 Anti.png 15:26, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
So long as it is in the userspace I'm sure it's fine, but it is by no means acceptable in an article; I'm sure you all are well aware of that. --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 16:37, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
Actually, Matt, we're documenting what it stands for, we have to put it as is. --Unending fear 16:46, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
I was referring to other articles. For instance; the Sylvari page. We should never have anything like "A Sylvari is a fucking plant that ____", etc. When it's used in this context it's perfectly fine, but I mean that uncensored words shouldn't be in any non-related article. :) --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 16:50, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
well duh ¬_¬ *Charr are fucking scary felines 7ft tall that cause you to shit bricks* --NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon5 Anti.png 16:52, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
Oh, you should've specified other articles... >.> --Unending fear 17:17, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
