Talk:Main Page/Archive 3

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

So if editcopy is for talking about the main page...

Then what is this talk page for? Normally I wouldn't ask such a stupid question, but it is very late and I could not figure it out. EiveTalk 06:40, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

As I currently see it, it's a page for many people to throw questions on, even though they're not stating them on the correct page(s). Redirecting it to the editcopy's main page would totally screw up that page and this one is easy pruning/archiving? Personally I see no value in this page altogether. - Infinite - talk 13:07, 22 December 2010 (UTC)
On the original wiki, the main talk page was perma protected after some spambots hit it in 2006 - and it's been protected ever since. No real reason to lock this one, but that goes to show how useful talk:main page is in general. -Auron 14:09, 22 December 2010 (UTC)
Main Page talk: on GWW is not protected... only Main Page. This talk page is for discussing the current content of the Main page. Main Page/editcopy talk: is to discuss proposed changes to the Main Page that are presented on Main Page/editcopy. -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 10:15, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
That's what it's supposedly for; the actual use appears voided. At least the notice up there implies all changes regarding the main page are better to be placed in editcopy (and thus its talk, not this one). Also, surprised to see you here, Wyn~ - Infinite - talk 16:06, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Event Maps

Where are the events maps for Timberline Falls, Regrown flames and Valley Headland. I couldn't find them on the wiki. User:Sandoros

There's is no explanation or reason for them not to be on the wiki. But there is no explanation or reason if they were. It's just a few of many GW2 pieces that are yet to be uploaded or written. These event maps will challenge us, definitely, but that is probably for when the game is actually released. All current active editors, and those ex-active editors will be digging through these events and will most likely create better and more precise maps from the actual game. Not to forget that icons and such... If you wish, or if anyone wishes, they could uploaded it. ge4ce 10:54, 2 January 2011 (UTC)


Should we create a lore feedback page? Reasons why things are the way they are. Relationships between species and races, such as: Norn and Human. - Lucian Shadowborn User Aios sig.png 23:17, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Sounds like a good idea. Be good for people RPing also I guess. Not only that, but that could also lightly touch on which races are sympathetic towards other races. Kaon Frostblade User Kaon Frostblade Frost Sword.png 16:28, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
If it's a feedback page, then RPs would be irrelevant. Also, and more importantly, there is no feedback space on this wiki yet. You could try submitting something on the GWW feedback pages, but I think they like to mostly keep the lore development to themselves at ANet. -- Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 16:32, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

It does appear to be a dead Project, so I like that idea. EiveTalk 20:39, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
I'll sign up, give me a video and I'll document as much as I can from it. (Like I did with the 54:10 video today.) - Infinite - talk 20:50, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
It would be nice to have more organisation around which videos and articles have had a detailed examination and documentation to avoid duplication of effort. I think there are creatures, events and objects which were missed from the gamescom stuff - traits and skills are generally more interesting. :) -- aspectacle User Aspectacle.png 22:36, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Info Release?

I know there has been info realesed on other sites, but there isn't much more to see on as you have probably seen. Ever since the hall of monuments update there hasn't been much more than that. When's there gonna be more intel on the product? I guess we won't know for now hunh.--The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Maxwell Angleheart (talk).

Link image

I want to create a link to this wiki using the logo in the top left corner, is that allowed and if so is there somewhere I can easily grab the logo? Draco 11:32, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

I guess you're not on FireFox. - Infinite - talk 14:37, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) I can answer you the latter, but not the former. -- Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 14:38, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
The logo is based in artwork owned by ANet, so technically, they are the ones who decide what can be done with it. That being said, I am sure that ANet will be ok if you just use the logo to link to this page. --Xeeron 18:12, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
I do have Firefox but I don't use it to "steal" images very often so not familiar doing it, since you couldn't just right click and save I wasn't sure if the image was protected for a reason. I know with GW1 most images we're made available to web site designers and that may happen again with GW2 but so far I've seen no official discussion on it. I'm assuming that at least some ArenaNet staff look at this site since it's on their domain. I'll make the assumption that the same rules apply here as with GW1 unless told otherwise, if ArenaNet has a problem I'll be more than happy to remove any and all images when requested. Draco 23:11, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
I just used Chrome, right-clicked the image and hit "inspect element" which led me to the page source which gave me the direct link. *shrug* Anyway, your plan sounds fine. -- Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 23:54, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

'this week's event page

the gw1 wiki has the link on its main page to the week/weekend event, say, treats weekend or double reputation weekend - this week is humanity week, anyone else think it should be on this page? the first ever week event for gw2? oops forgot to sign Getefix 19:47, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

im gonna get loads of people disagreeing lol
Eh, but we don't know there will always be a week/weekend event to put there. They only now did a weekly event, so if we set up the main page to match it might end up being a waste of time. -- Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 20:24, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
on one of the human releases (armour one i think) the guy says something about doing the same thing for the norn - so the next 'week event' will be one of the other races is what i was on about Getefix 16:57, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
That is what the "News" box is for. (Besides, knowing how long it took to get us to agree on the current design (3-5 months), by the time we stopped arguing compromising about how we wanted it to be implemented, the "Race weeks" would be long gone.) Aqua (T|C) 17:06, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
3-5 months?! wow - cant wait till the game comes back and there starts to be 'slay the shatterer double exp weekend' events and the website will have to be redesigned AGAIN XD Getefix 21:27, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
With that amount of arguing the game would probably almost be out by the time we settled on a Main Page design. Kind of a side note, the Norn are most likely the next "race week" to come out (as stated at the end of the Designing Humans article) though this might have been just a general statement xD /endspeculation. Has there been any further anouncements of "race/theme" weeks ongoing or in the future? That might be a prompt to try and hammer out an event box/thing on the Main Page sooner? 21:38, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
That is different. We can just have a box with an updated "events thing" then. Getting that box into the design would be the thing that takes time, and once we decide how to implement it, we can simply update the weekend event box. Aqua (T|C) 21:43, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
I doubt very much we will have those "events" that often; adding one now would leave it open for the majority of the year. I think it would be better to wait more (a lot more) before doing something like that. Erasculio 21:51, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
I don't think that a series of blog posts counts as an event, rather, just a series of blog posts. -Xu Davella 13:56, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Why is it the old GW2 logo and not the new dragon one? User Rose Of Kali SIG.jpgRose Of Kali 17:04, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

since the thief has been officially announced why don't we put it on the page? although it hasn't got its page on the website - it's still been announced. Getefix 22:15, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

The thief is listed under Professions on the main page. As for News, that can wait for the reveal, typically we only add things to Official News that Anet has put on their site. EiveTalk 22:18, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
I assume you mean on the news section, as Thief has in fact been updated on the main page. - Infinite - talk 23:20, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

game mechanics

shouldn't we add crafting? Getefix 21:59, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

It's been added on Main Page/editcopy, which gets synced to the main page every so often. Nothing urgent. --ஸ Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 14:14, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Official Site

I may be partially blind, lately, but I've been looking and I can't seem to find a link to the official site or a discussion about it. Is there one? If not, would it be possible to create one without stepping on any toes? Sorry if all of this has been answered before, and if I'm just not seeing what's already there. Teddy Dan, yo. 02:38, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Currently, there is no link for GW2W on the main site. There was a discussion way way back, as I recall, but no recent ones. Aqua (T|C) 21:02, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Nor is there a link to the wiki on the main site. :(-- Shew 21:08, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
And that's because the wiki itself is still in beta form. (Xu Davella 00:03, 24 March 2011 (UTC))
Shew, you completely restated what I said... ^.^ But yes, the high and low of it is that we are still under construction, and therefore aren't ready for the potential amount of traffic a main site link could provide, among other things. Aqua (T|C) 13:49, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Weapons/Armor section

Is it just me, or does the main page look too empty without a weapons and armor section? Is it still too early to add one? Above Average Joe 12:36, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
I'd say it's too early seeing as all the weapons and armors we've seen in the demos are subjects to change.
User Infinite Userbox.png 12:46, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
Wouldn't everything on this wiki be that? I think it is more in the lines of; If we add many things... we might end up changing everything because of a few changes Anet did. Less is more, sorta. Ge4ce-Talk-Contribs 13:08, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

User of the month/ Featured article

Should we have these or is it still too early to really do anything? User AboveAverageJoe Dragon Slash.jpg User:AboveAverageJoe 20:02, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

As far as I know, we have never done user of the month, nor has GWW. I really don't like the idea personally. Featured article, however, will be implemented when we get more complete information. (Featured article will probably be started a couple months after release...) Aqua (T|C) 20:08, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
We had a discussion partly on the topic of featured articles before. tl;dr: We are far away from the point at which featuring articles makes any sense. poke | talk 20:27, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

New Krytan

How freaking long did it take you guys to do this?! --Malchior Devenholm 01:43, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

It took me about 15 minutes to copy and paste the characters into a font editor and then align and resize them :P Rest is online converters and a little CSS. --zeeZ 01:55, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Fantastic! Is this or is this not according to the date? -- Frozzen 04:02, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Given the incomplete state of the alphabet and the fact this starts ON by default, I'd say date. But I'd love to see this be a normal feature when the full alphabet has been deciphered. -Yossitaru 04:38, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Pfft, I've been using that for over 5 days now! It's always an option, you just need to edit your monobook.css and .js accordingly --zeeZ 04:43, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Is it possible to have the New Krytan appear on certain pages? E.G.: Is there a way I can get it so that whenever someone views my userpage, it appears in New Krytan, unless they click the Turn Off link? -- My Talk Lacky 10:27, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

sure it is --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 10:49, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
It is currently only thought as an April's Fool. We might continue to offer the feature (of course not per default then). And while it is possible to trigger it only for certain pages, it's not possible to do that for your own userpage, Lacky. As with all changes that affect everybody, these need to be made in a central spot and we won't do such things for every single user. Sorry. poke | talk 10:51, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

april's fool day!!

april's fool day is AWESOME!!!!!!!! i am sitll typing in new krytan but the letter X is missing, for those wo are still reading in new krytan, the leter before y!! --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

So are the letters j, v, x, and z - assumingly because we do not know what they are, yet. Also, according to the New Krytan page, q is unknown as well (at least, there's no image for it, yet), however, if you view the page with the New Krytan font on, it shows the New Krytan character for q. -- My Talk Lacky 12:36, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Special:Log/Block: Admins have blocked quite a lot of IPs already. But because the bots keep changing their IP, it's impossible to ban them for good.

I have, over the course of the existence of this wiki, made small and hidden changes to every page, each time with a different IP address. These changes are tiny and powerless, in and of themselves, yet all together they comprise the lyrics to the full song "Never Gonna Give You Up" as well as "Trololo". I doubt that you will ever find them and fix them. And so they will sit, multiplying, spreading, until eventually the entire wiki is one big rickroll. Do I expect you to thwart me? No, mister Bond.

ArenaNet staff who have accounts on the wiki

i know i brought this up before but i wanted to ask about this again mainly because i was looking for a list of active anet users on the wiki.-User Zesbeer sig.png Zesbeer 20:33, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

I think we should not put a link for (or even have) such a list on the main page, to reduce the amount of misguided content on these users' talk pages. The usual content found on the staff talk pages is a request for support, for which we now have the official support forums in place. I'd rather not invite such "contributions" to this wiki. It avoids unnecessary chaos.
That said, we can (and possibly should) still add a link to the user page on the staff member's main space article (such as seen on Gaile Gray), albeit as a note, unlike done in this example (the first use of the article's title on a page should link to the page itself). Their presence on the wiki is trivial and should not function, or be used any differently than other users' talk pages; to contact about edits/changes, to contact in the case of notable information they should be made aware of or to contact for chit-chat, as long as it does not excessively swarm the Recent changes).
This is just my personal take on this matter at this point in time. It may change, depending on the arguments that arise in this (and future) discussions regarding the subject. - Infinite - talk 20:51, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
A list with only one name seems kind of pointless anyway. pling User Pling sig.png 21:25, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
I can't think of a good reason to put a list of active ArenaNet employees other than to say "hey, they're on the wiki!" I feel that all those links would be used for is misdirected BS and general idiocy. People who actually have legitimate suggestions (GW1:Feedback:Main) and support issues ([1]) should know that their pages aren't the place for it, and people who need to contact them through the wiki should be able to find their pages without a link on the main page.

lets just wait untill we have a image for that and lets wait until we figure out how we want to order them (personally i think we should go off the flash image on the website left to right.) -User Zesbeer sig.png Zesbeer 01:07, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
as of now they are in order of release, starting in the center and alternating sides for each reveal. in the past we decided to list professions by class and alphabetically starting with soldiers, adventures then scholars. id say just go with that to keep it uniform. --Moto Saxon 01:12, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
The order of release is more symmetrical than ordering by soldiers, adventurers, scholars (as a sidenote, if we arranged it by armor class, there would be an awkward break in the middle of the adventurers...) --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Aquadrizzt (talk).
Don't forget to sign when you comment. there would be a break in the classes no matter how you ordered it. There are many different ways it can be ordered, but it was previously decided to go by class for the rest of the wiki. it doesn't matter to me how we do the home page, im just pointing out how the rest of the wiki is. --Moto Saxon 02:03, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
I am very well aware of how it is on the rest of the wiki, I'm just saying that here it would be unbalanced to organize l->r soldier->adventurer->scholar. I'll post a sandbox shortly to show why... Aqua (T|C) 02:54, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
I agree. I wholeheartedly support an alphabetic order. User:Glastium Glastium | talk 02:56, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Note the off-centeredness of the logo when its arranged heavy to medium to light. Aqua (T|C) 02:59, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

It's not a big deal if the logo is forced in the center while professions extend to sides. The problem is, the order should be consistent to usual custom, where soldier->wanderer->scholar is definitely not it (The official website is not even in this order). User:Glastium Glastium | talk 03:06, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
And usual custom to this wiki is armor then alphabetical. (read: G W En R T E M N) Aqua (T|C) 03:59, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Aqua, im really fine with whatever, yes i agree that aesthetically it should look correct, the logo centered and the professions equally balanced. But that can be done just by resizing the icons. In your example the ranger was different sizes for each. So, I guess we should decide what order makes most sense and looks best. --Moto Saxon 04:59, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
here is what i would do. Its the two Soldiers right next to the dragoon then 2 Adventurers then 2 Scholars and then 2 random cus adventurers and scholars have 1 extra but i decided it would look better if you had them facing away from the logo.-User Zesbeer sig.png Zesbeer 06:10, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
I'll note we could put them back in the order they're actually in in the group image (which just switches Necro with Thief, and Guardian with la-la-la-I-do-not-acknowledge-leaks). - Tanetris 15:12, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
haha. Surely tane, you can acknowledge two devs posting that the last profession is Mesmer. --Moto Saxon 16:06, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Tossed up some variants on the Sandbox. I actually really like Scholar, Adventurer, Soldier (E, L(a-la-la), N, En, R, T, G, W). It has decent symmetry, everyone that faces a direction faces outward, and it's a sensible order. - Tanetris 17:22, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
I like that one too. It also has this pyramid effect with the classes leading up to the logo. Mattsta 20:25, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
What's the aesthetic balance that is desired? Balance in terms of overall well-roundedness on a team level? Like 4v4 with the GW2 logo being the v? If that's the case just apply a simple solution. Warrior + Adventurers as one group of 4, with Guardian + Scholars as a second group. Whichever side either group ends up on just place the heavy armored class closest to the GW2 logo. I feel like alphabetical order is the simplest solution. -- Blue Phoenix User Blue Phoenix Phoenix inverted.jpg 03:10, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Blue Phoenix, I wasn't thinking about it like that, but it's possibly an excellent idea. IMO, how about we acknowledge that ArenaNet has good taste when it comes to artistic composition and set it up similar to the way it is set up on the official professions page? Aqua (T|C) 03:19, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

we should come to some sort of agreement then push what we like live before wintersday stuff goes up-User Zesbeer sig.png Zesbeer 19:01, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
