I have to say, that "crowd-funding" video is fantastic! Lol. --Inculpatus cedo (talk) 09:44, 1 April 2017 (UTC)


The "Previous" link in the featured article box

Hi there,

I noticed that the "Previous" link in the featured article box links to Living World Season 3 Episode 3 instead of 4. Is it because Episode 4 was not a previously featured article or another reason? I'm just curious :)

Thanks --Stephane Lo Presti talk 15:33, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Alex took care of it. G R E E N E R 17:26, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
(I didn't want to go and edit it without knowing the proper process) You guys are the best 👍 --Stephane Lo Presti talk 17:28, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Update for Flashpoint

Page needs a nice little update for flashpoint <3. -Darqam 14:25, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Honestly lol, how long have you been here? The talk page to ask on is Template:Main Page/featured, and you can edit that page yourself too! -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:40, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
Hey now, Darq-bot knows, but probably didn't know how to word it. I emphathize. —Ventriloquist 18:22, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Automated tournaments

I think Automated Tournaments should be added to PvP section.The F. Prince (talk) 15:35, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

True, I've added it to the page, thanks for the feedback! —Ventriloquist 16:08, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

Love the new color scheme!

My philosophy is that anything with purple is good, and the wiki masthead looks really great! --Gaile User gaile 2.png 21:41, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

Purple is the new green (is the new red)..don't you know! =P Looks nice, guys. Inculpatus cedo (talk)
That was another lovely File:Skin header purple mist.png|gift from Alex. I guess I have to get with the times, though. G R E E N E R 01:00, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
Took me a minute, but I see what you did there, you rascal! Inculpatus cedo (talk)
Thanks Gaile! -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:07, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

New background needed?

Hi everyone,

I love that you changed the top banner, it looks sleek! The Rytlock/Caithe background now creates a color disconnect between the purple and green tones. Would you like to update this piece with something more desert-like? If so, I can talk to our designer to see what can be done.

Thank you for your work! --Stephane Lo Presti talk 15:15, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

Alex did an awesome job with the banner. Oh, and I like your suggestion (not sure what the others think) — could we also get some logo renders and assets like the ones you uploaded when HoT launched, please? That'd be splendid. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 15:35, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
We have a few assets we can share that would be suitable for this. I'll try to upload a few today if possible. --Stephane Lo Presti talk 15:38, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, the banner looks awesome, though I'm tempted to tweak the saturation a bit so the red tones sparkle like they do on the logo. And thank you for seeking some assets for us; I'd been wondering when we were going to stumble across some appropriate images to use for the background, so this will be really helpful! --Idris (talk) 15:44, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
Agreed, thank you, Stéphane! User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 17:50, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
Somehow I missed this yesterday Stephane, any files that you can provide would be appreciated. (Especially a large rectangle of path of fire colour). -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:07, 3 August 2017 (UTC)
I started uploading a few things for you, let me know what you think and if you have further requests!

Let me know if that's helpful and if you need other assets! (I'm going to take a break now then may come back to upload more) --Stephane Lo Presti talk 19:15, 3 August 2017 (UTC)
Those look really nice! I especially like the custom footer. The textures, though perfect for making our new banner, aren't quite what I had in mind for background images. If possible, I'd like to see something similar to the images we already have: pictures made out of splatters of colour on top of white. Thank you again for your help! --Idris (talk) 01:49, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Proposal for new header

As lovely as Alex's new header is, the colours don't quite match the PoF logo. I've uploaded an edited version with brighter colours: [[:File:User Idris header proposal 1.png]]. It doesn't hold a candle to ANet, so if anyone with better skills/editing software wants to take another hack at it, please do so. What do you think? --Idris (talk) 16:35, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

I'm going to look for a colour texture that i can cut the header out of without adjusting hue/saturation. You're bang on with the colour though. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:07, 3 August 2017 (UTC)
That was my first thought too, but I couldn't find an appropriate texture. (The site keeps crashing when I try to visit it today, lol.) Good luck! --Idris (talk) 17:08, 3 August 2017 (UTC)
Look at the one I just uploaded (see previous topic, right above this one). I may have other things I can upload that would work for this, I just need to find the time to look into it, thank you! --Stephane Lo Presti talk 19:15, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

Halloween 2017

The Halloween event is put as the coming event but it is current right now so can someone please fix it? I don't know how otherwise I would.Dragon Hunter (talk) 13:25, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

Love the Wintersday background on the main page!

Whoever had this idea, good job! Best background I have seen on this site. Dragon Hunter (talk) 01:38, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

Seconded! The little bottom border is incredibly detailed for a silhouette tableau. Love it!--Rain Spell (talk) 06:27, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

Problems with random images on the Wiki?

Should there be a link to Mount?

As the title suggests: should there be a link for people who want to look at the mount system, and in which category should it be? Cynique (talk) 11:51, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

There should be, yes. I'd say it should be in a new category Movement (or similar) along with Gliding. Or at least put in Masteries somewhere (since those should be listed there too) --Gimmethegepgun (talk) 15:25, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
There should be links to both, yes. I'm personally terrible when it comes to visual design, but if you're up for the challenge, you can look at Main Page/editcopy and make suggestions. Also, don't let us forget that such a page exists, or your suggestions may go unnoticed for far too long. G R E E N E R 17:39, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
I went for the simplest possible version, with an isolated entry for Mounts at the bottom of the Gameplay section, mostly because I looked there for other reasons before I looked here. Cynique (talk) 18:22, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
How about a new subcategory "Expansion content" with Masteries, Gliding, and Mounts? Maybe Adventures as well, though that might belong in the PvE section --Gimmethegepgun (talk) 19:16, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Cute paperclip, and I hope the rest is April Fool's. Ooops, I don't think I did this right. Sorry. Inculpatus cedo (talk) 16:12, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

some other site you're thinking of clearly. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:28, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
Sure, that must be it.  ;) Inculpatus cedo (talk) 17:30, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Just want to add that I think the main page is missing link to expansions as a crucial part of the game. Sime (talk) 17:43, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Additions to History and Lore section

Would it be possible to add links to "Dragon's Watch" and "Six Human Gods" to the History and Lore section on the main page? Both groups have as much relevancy in the narrative with all races as Destiny's Edge and Elder Dragons do by now. It would not only reflect the developments in the story but also allow new wiki goers to quickly immerse themselves in the deep lore surrounding both groups in addition to the links to other groups already existing there. --Kossage (talk) 21:17, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Latest revision

Oh, I like this much more. I wasn't fond of having to scroll down to access Game Updates, Event Timers, etc. Thanks. Inculpatus cedo (talk) 22:43, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Revert charges to main page

I think that the latest look of the main page is one of the worst in awhile. It should either be reverted to this one with reorganized divsions below the feature (as news & updates took up an excessive amount of space) or to the pre-rethemed version. — Cronos 21:14, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

I wouldn't call it the worst, but I do agree that the current design looks inferior to the previous design. --Doctor Refrence (talk) 21:18, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
In awhile! It hasn't changed in awhile, so it would be the worst of the three recent looks. — Cronos
We're doing this dicussion on Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Community portal#Main page. FWIW, the version where we copied the styles off ArenaNet's page (big featured article box) received more complaints than the current version. We're unlikely to revert fully back to the old table since we've put some effort into making it more legible on different width devices. --Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 15:53, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
