How many pages?

can we get an counter on how many pages there are on the wiki? i think it wuold be nice to see how it evolves. It wuold be even better if we cuold get a whole statestic page like on the GW1 wiki. hope i postet the rigth place --ismet 17:52, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

We have a statistics page here. --Santax (talk · contribs) 18:10, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
oh, ok ty -- 13:34, 24 December 2007 (UTC) forgot to login it is written by me --ismet 13:36, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Do we have the GW2 Logo on top or underneath the welcome message? When I put it underneath, I thought of the message on GWW and the logos underneath but obviously this is different. Also, what image should we use? The current one is just a fan render, if you look at the wiki's logo you can see a bit of a difference. I also think that an enlarged version of the favicon might look nice too if we can get one, any thoughts? --Santax (talk · contribs) 16:21, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

lol i see this one accidently happening to be on Ryudos talk page --Cursed Angel talk 16:25, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
For the time being, it looks better underneath. When GW2 is actually out, and we put boxes or whatever there, we can change it to something else. I think the welcome to gw2w box looks tacky underneath the logo. --Talk br12(talk) 18:22, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
That's only because of the fat editcopy message pushing everything down, imo. It'll look better a year and change down the road. Calor (t) 19:09, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
I see no need for the logo at all, for the moment. It's already in the upper-left corner of the screen. The logos on the main page of GWW serve a purpose, linking to the various campaigns; this doesn't. - Tanetris 19:33, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Just a proposal, what do you think of BigBlue/Sandbox? BigBlueUser Big Blue Icon.pngtalk 11:13, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
I'd say I'd prefer that one. It's not so big and screamy if you know what I mean. Dragnmn talk cont 22:03, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
That's great for now. We'll likely have it similar to GWW in the future, with images of titles of the installments on the top of the main page, with those images redirecting to the installment. Calor (t) 00:11, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

link to GWW1

can someone put a link in here to directly go to the normal official wiki for GW1? sorry i'm not too good at formatting so can someone else do it? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Rhydeble .

Some admin will get it on the main page soon. I'll put it on the editcopy. Calor (t) 21:17, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Thank's for the quick help with it. Rhydeble 21:56, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
No problem. Formatting isn't fun at times. Calor (t) 21:57, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Is GWW GW2W's sister site, or parent site? Hmm? Talk br12(talk) 22:46, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Cousin. is GWW's parent site, and are sister sites, and is GW2W's parent site. If you want to get technical, anyway. Sister is probably close enough. - Tanetris 22:55, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Changes for the main page can be proposed here.

Why is this always deleted from editcopy? I mean it's really necessary on main page. BigBlueUser Big Blue Icon.pngtalk 10:40, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

Sysops should be able to not forget to insert it again on the Main Page.. poke | talk 19:20, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
It's not needed on the editcopy. — Eloc 19:56, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
It's *far* easier to just copy-paste the entire thing onto the main page. That's what we did on PvX before the headache of scrolling down through the code got to me and I made Wizardboy split it up. (Yes, I got headaches just by twirling my scroll wheel.) Though I suppose this wiki doesn't have four or five tables lying around... -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 08:20, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
It's easy enough to do it on GWW, and I suppose the two wikis will end up having a similar layout --User Pling sig.png Plingggggg \ Talk 18:35, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
It's just two lines of codes - how can it be "far" easier to have this on the editcopy? As a sysop you even have to remove the editcopy notice! whoah! We should remove the editcopy notice to make it "far" easier to copy! (Sorry, sarcasm :P) poke | talk 22:10, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
I think it's easier for absentminded/tired sysops. :P Lord Belar 22:18, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
We shall appoint admins who are unable to feel tired then. Lord of all tyria 22:29, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
No, we just need to supply all sysops with a caffeine drip. Lord Belar 22:32, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
Sounds fine. Lord of all tyria 22:33, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

remake of the main page

i for one am not the person to go and do this because i dont have any idea how to format or make tables in wiki... any how i feel like the main page should have another box linking you to lore and other info that we do have. the main page as it is right now is rather stale. 01:44, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

The wiki has little to no activity yet, and there's even less lore. There's no pressing need to remake the page yet. Calor Talk 20:59, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Main Page update

moved from Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Admin noticeboard

Could you please add the Articles of Interest section of the editcopy that Plingggggg added on 2008-07-24T14:54:35 to the Main Page? --Max 2 02:47, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

While I am not against adding it, you should raise that point at Talk:Main Page/editcopy, where there has been 0 support/demand for this so far. The noticeboard is the wrong place. --Xeeron 16:01, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
This page is not for discussion. It is for requesting action that only administrators can perform. Updating the main page is something that requires bypassing the protected status of that page. That means it can only be done by an administrator. Therefor it is reasonable to ask for that action here.
The information is part of the editcopy page and there has been no objection, nor is there a stated requirement that there be a specific request for inclusion. My understanding is that additions should simply be made and people will revert them if there is an objection. Since this is the main page, it makes sense that some delay exists before the main page gets updated, but a delay of a year is a bit long. --Max 2 16:42, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Well? --Max 2 16:32, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Update the main page already, the edit-copy looks great. Go go go! -- CoRrRan (CoRrRan / talk) 23:18, 20 August 2009 (UTC)


I think the blue from GWW is tired. I used colors from the background for the green choices. Comments? -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 23:09, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Looks much better than the old blue. Matches our logo a bit too (well, it has bits of green in it at least :P). --User Pling sig.png Pling \ talk 23:16, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
As long as it's not purple too : P Erasculio 23:47, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
LOL! No, the green and purple combination has it's place now, and I am satisfied :P -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 02:49, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
