Talk:Green Wood Harpoon Gun

Jump to navigationJump to search

I have no idea how to move a page. I saw a reference on Wombatt's Talk, but it doesn't seem to be there for me. If someone else could move this page to Crude Harpoon Gun(it currently redirects you back to this page. just a headsup.), that'd be awesome. Or if that function doesn't exist anymore (I cant see why it wouldn't) then, I'd like to know so that I could move them via copy+paste and this could go up for deletion. Thanks.

There should be a tab at the top of your screen that says Move. Wombatt 03:30, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
Edit BUT, according to this, this is the correct page for it, they shouldn't be capitalized. Wombatt 03:31, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) not necessarily, if the vector sin is in use it's a small inverted triangle just to the left of the search box. The dropdown will reveal the move option. Venom20 User Venom20-icon-0602-sm-black.png 03:33, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
@wombatt, it says only capitalize proper nouns. I feel the entire name could be classified as "proper nouns". for example: "harpoon gun" is an improper noun (wouldn't need capitalized), but, "Crude Harpoon Gun" is a specific harpoon gun, thus I feel it should be capitalized. also, all our other item pages are capitalized. Also, don't argue that the words harpoon gun aren't important, it's like "The Statue of Liberty". statue and liberty on their own arent proper, but together they become proper nouns in the title.
@venom, I have no icon near my search bar. I have search, with a line under it, with a box to type (to search, obviously). Below that there is a Go button, and a search button. Then there is support. As I'm typing this, I noticed a "move" tab at the top of my screen that is exactly what I need. typical. I'll wait for Wombatt to respond before I move this, to see what he says in response (and if he changes my mind). Juicearific ~talk 04:13, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
I'm torn on this one. It says that " Page titles and section headers use normal sentence case, capitalizing proper nouns only...", with only the exception for name of skills which "will remain capitalized as they appear in-game." I think your reasoning is sound, though. GW1W precedent can't be applied because Anet changed their house style mid-stream Wombatt 04:23, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
Personally I think if it mattered that much, we would've heard about it somewhere by now. It only bothers me because whenever I type to link to it, I type in Crude Harpoon Gun, proper noun capitalized style, and it links me to the other page. I'd be fine with leaving it here otherwise. (specifically, whenever I typed redirect to that page, and it took me to another redirect page. xD). Anyways it's not a huge deal to me, but I feel like we should change it since all the others are titled it. If it comes down to it and it needs changed back, so does a ton of other pages.

edit, also: you rock. because I just noticed you changed the rarity, I've been wondering how to display it in the rarity color. Now I know :D Juicearific ~talk 04:37, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
Capitalization is a controversial issue that has not been fully resolved yet. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 12:54, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Missing recipe? fine level 10 Mighty Green Wood Harpoon Gun[edit]

I got one as a random drop (MF, I think) and was incredibly perplexed that there are offers up to 7s, and _no_ sellers. As I went craft some to satisfy the orders, I found I do not seem to be able to craft it. The recipe is not available for discovery, and my Huntsman ~400 does not know it. Can anyone else confirm?

Yes, I can confirm this. The zero-rating recipes don’t work for some reason. poke | talk 20:43, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
My level 500 Huntsman and the Novice Huntsman I started today cannot discover or craft the Malign/Mighty/Vital Green Wood Harpoon Gun (fine) weapon. Additionally, the required Green Harpoon component cannot be used or crafted until Huntsman level 25 is obtained, despite the item having a level 0 requirement overall. Reported this as a bug. --Saroya Ravenwind (talk) 20:03, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
