Teddy Dan[edit]

Dude, chill, it's perfectly okay for people to post whatever comments they want. Just because you don't agree with them does not mean you have to refute or argue your point to the exclusion of all others. Clearly, you like the Engineer profession. Fine. Good for you. Please respect other peoples opinions. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 99.72.195.220 (talk).

I would, but people seriously need to do their research before they formulate obnoxiously negative opinions about a new addition to a game that isn't even finished. I can't say whether I like the Engineer profession or not because I haven't played it, yet. If they can publicize their opinions, so can I. Otherwise, wouldn't refusing me my opinions while demanding that I respect those of others be a double-standard? Also, please sign your comments. Teddy Dan 21:47, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
No, it's not okay. Nobody deserves an opinion.

FFS![edit]

People need to learn to ____ing read! How many ____ing times am I going to see new ____ing sections on the same ____ing page with the same ____ing whining? ____ing retards, I swear it. Keyboards should have needles embedded into each key, so people would be forced to actually think before they type. Teddy Dan 02:16, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Do you want a hug? :> - Infinite - talk 09:04, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
Dan, if you're annoyed or frustrated, take a break and do something else for a while. Attacking other users isn't excusable, whether you censor naughty words or not. pling User Pling sig.png 18:03, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I could've used that hug yesterday, but thanks.
Walking away from stupid people has never been easy for me. I've always been the "I must beat logic into them!" type. As noted, I believe it's still on that page somewhere, I'm still working on that part of me. The reason I'm not hesitant in the least to call them stupid people is because all of the repetition and consequent melodrama could be avoided if only they'd actually read and realize that anything they have to complain about has already been justified, leaving none of their complaints anything more than personal preference rants. In fact, I'm quite disappointed that I was the only person there discouraging the creation of multiple sections for the same argument. Also, I posted this section directly on my talk page. Nobody who isn't looking for it is going to see it. Since they clearly don't know how to read anyway, chances are the people it refers to will never know it exists. Teddy Dan 19:32, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
I really still want to hug you, especially after this comment. Then again, I am a bit weird. Eventually people will realize that the wiki is not a playground and that we're here to document facts and discuss edits, rather than crying our butthurt arses off about disappointment. One day. And you are right, but with his message Pling meant well in the sense that he'd rather not see you slip your words in on the main space (like what I have done once before) and having to take actions according. :) - Infinite - talk 19:42, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
(>o_o)> Teddy Dan 19:54, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
I got what he was saying, but I fully intended to use my personal talk page to let off steam away from the main space if need be. It's not as good as not using the wiki to let off steam at all, but it's better than letting off steam on the main space. Teddy Dan 20:04, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
If you want to let off steam off-wiki, my msn is always open to random strangers I met on the internet. Many other contributors (as well as myself) let off steam in conversations with me. :P - Infinite - talk 20:08, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
It's the getting off wiki to let off steam part that I have trouble with. I got rid of MSN when I started using Trillian, and I think I got rid of Trillian when I started using Skype. I'll have to look for it. Teddy Dan 20:12, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Yes, there is also IRC, where I am present basically every second that I spend on my computer. - Infinite - talk 21:54, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
I've never used IRC. Also, I've heard and read rather often that "IRC is full of trolls". Same with Guru. Teddy Dan 22:26, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
IRC is relatively quiet and I have yet to experience my first troll. Well, I heard Tane can be a troll from time to time, but we all know he is superior to such things. - Infinite - talk 22:42, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
I suppose I could check it out, in the near future. Teddy Dan 22:45, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

If I were you...[edit]

I'd take a few day wiki break, to get away from the insanity. Or, at the very least, stay away from pages that involve professions. Because of the nature of this reveal (and all reveals honestly), the IPs are going to be on a rage-fueled hate rampage and the redlink'd users that never contribute will be returning to stir up more trouble. There's going to be a lot of personal attacks and trolling by the people who just don't give a hoot if they're banned, and no offense, but your personality is the type that will fall to these baiting attempts time and time again, at least to a third party's perspective. If you to leave for a day or two it'd give the wiki time to naturally kill these annoying new sections made by IPs, and would save you a lot of frustration. (This is also what I am doing starting now) -User Eive Windgrace Harbinger of the Deceiver.png 21:16, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Which is a great excuse to get your MSN going! - Infinite - talk 22:19, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
I'll consider just not commenting at all on personal preferences. I did manage to "tone it down", as suggested so many times, by only mentioning that those pages aren't meant for that purpose or what are/could be considered personal attacks, but it seems as though that's also just as detrimental. It's harder to revert/move when people continue to add to things, so I realize I'm only making matters worse. I'm also getting tired of repeating myself, so my desire to edit is plummeting. I've already admitted to being easy to goad, so no offense taken. Teddy Dan 23:05, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
I'll give you my contact info the next time I see you online. Though, it isn't difficult to figure out. >.> Teddy Dan 00:08, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
I am here all the time. I never sleep. Must be loyal guard dog. - Infinite - talk 01:39, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
"(Do not disturb)" I can't message you. >.> Fix'd. Teddy Dan 02:13, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Rules[edit]

  • Keep profanity to a minimum.
  • Don't be a hypocrite.
  • Read everything before you comment.
  • Support your claims or don't claim them.
  • Don't twist facts to suit your agenda.
  • Don't deny the truth just because you don't like it.
  • Don't make me repeat myself.

Failure to adhere to such simple behavior will result in mockery. You have been warned.

About your "Plans"[edit]

So.... First of all welcome to the GW2W, noticed you haven't been around before despite several people knowing you... Back to the main point, I was looking at the Plans section of your user page, and noticed that you seem to like combining professions with specific racial skills. I'm not sure if you knew, but racial skills are specifically meant to be weaker versions of profession skills that typically do the same thing. Shrapnel Mine will most likely be less effective than any of the ranger traps. Grasping Roots already appears to be beaten by Scorpion Wire (although this is more preference) and by a warrior skill. The healing skills sylvari will have should be weaker than the elementalist skills that do the same. If you were aware, then I suppose the only thing I can think of would be that you simply want copies of skills on your skill bar, which seems odd to me given how amazing every skill in GW2 is. -User Eive Windgrace Harbinger of the Deceiver.png 04:22, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome. Yes, I do seem to be earning negative popularity (mostly through my own misguided efforts). Yep, I just want back-ups in case of such things as interrupts or other means to bypass effects. I don't mind discussing it. Maybe you can change my mind. Teddy Dan, yo. 04:28, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Oh, and also cooldowns. I hate dying or watching somebody die while I'm recharging. So, even a tiny heal or snare while I'm still recharging is something I'm willing to try. I'm assuming players can still delete characters and modify their skill bars to remove ineffective racial skills from the equation, so these are just plans for experimentation rather than set-in-stone tactics. Thanks for your concern. Teddy Dan, yo. 04:34, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Ah, cooldowns. I suppose that makes sense with every decent utility skill having anywhere between a 45s and 120s recharge. The only problem is with healing skills, 80% of them are limited to a single slot on the skill bar, so having weak Sylvari healing duplicates might not even be possible. And negative popularity is the best kind of popularity, in my experience. -User Eive Windgrace Harbinger of the Deceiver.png 05:44, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Hmm... I wonder if that will still affect racial skills or if there's some leeway. If not, I could make a human ele and try for Kormir, depending on whether condition removal will also be limited to one skill slot. Not knowing what is and isn't really makes things fun... but frustrating. XD
Any thoughts on the asura warrior with the battlesuit? I want to find out what happens to the player's health if it exits the suit just before a potential down. Aside from the HuR, those are really the only ones I have my eyes dead set on experimenting with. The HuR is the only one set in stone because of the reason I listed in my Plans section. It's a bit of a comfort zone kinda thing, I guess. Teddy Dan, yo. 06:08, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
I understand what you're talking about with the HuR. That was my main in GW1 and will probably be my main in GW2 as well, I've always preferred range over melee and magic. But with the Battlesuit, make sure you know that there is a good chance that your first 5 skills will change with the suit, although other than that a giant Battlesuit warrior sounds pretty unstoppable. -User Eive Windgrace Harbinger of the Deceiver.png 06:28, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Not to mention the alleged +2k health. The first few skills reflect warrior nature well, too. Gatling Fist, Punch, Whirling Assault, though Gatling Fist may be a ranged attack as "shoot" is in the description. We'll just have to wait and see how that plays out. I'll also have to see how long it takes to activate/enter the suit, how long it takes to deactivate/leave it and how long before I can reactivate/reenter. Don't wanna be caught in a "cast time" on the front line, mid-combat, because I wanted to use a Warrior skill instead of a Battlesuit skill. Also, Rangers, ftw. Teddy Dan, yo. 06:34, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Also, I think a little asura with a greatsword could be hella cute. XD Teddy Dan, yo. 06:36, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
"2K health""Gatling Fist" Hazmat Suit and Golem Battlesuit are two separate things, although certainly similar in functionality. And personally, I think a sylvari with the largest possible greatsword would look much (assuming the redesign isn't awful) "cuter." Plus the ability to have three different [[Grasping Roots|immobilize]] skills. -User Eive Windgrace Harbinger of the Deceiver.png 06:52, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Oh. I just reread it and Hazmat was under See Also, which doesn't necessarily imply one is necessarily obtained by using the other. Oops. Well, I guess I'll just have to see what the actual Golem Battlesuit offers. A sylvari warrior with a greatsword would look more "cool" than "cute" to me, depending on age and appearance options. An anime-ish looking female sylvari with the typical oversized weapon would totally paint the popular picture, and would likely be well-received by a great number of fellow players. I just wanna see a midget swing around a sword potentially bigger than he is. XD
I would spend the karma for the Hazmat precisely for the +2k HP, though. The norn racial skill Bear Form is noted to offer a health bonus, as well, so we'll have to see exactly how much and if any skillsets are affected by the form. Teddy Dan, yo. 07:15, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
As for Shrapnel Mine, I don't know how many traps will be available per skillbar and, as far as I'm concerned, the more the merrier. I'm also pondering a sylvari necro to make use of this alleged tree golem as a sort of replacement for GW1's Flesh Golem. Waiting for more info on it. Another possible necro would be AsN to use Radiation Field, but we don't know for sure what that does yet. The racial skills may be weaker than normal skills, but they must have some practical use. Even if just to keep your fingers busy and/or make it look to the rest of your party/nearby allies like you're actually doing something while waiting through cooldowns. ^_^; Teddy Dan, yo. 10:16, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
I find it funny that you expect me to be able to stay in a discussion for more than an hour... Anyways, I would expect elite racial skills to be of normal elite strength, because they are supposed to be "game changing" or something along those lines. And I'd like to play HuN so that I could have flaming hounds of death running around with my minion army. -User Eive Windgrace Harbinger of the Deceiver.png 01:37, 2 May 2011 (UTC)
Well, that's why I left you a message. I just want to bounce ideas off of someone who knows what I'm talking about, so I can gradually decrease the mistakes I'll make when the time comes. I forgot that many, if not all, of these racial skills will be elites. There goes my idea of a HR using Hounds and Alpha Strike for a total of five "pets" at one time. I'll have to recheck some other skills, too. Thanks for reminding me. Teddy Dan 07:53, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

About your "intentions"[edit]

What are your intentions regarding my daughter?

Just playin' with ya, I love doing parodies ^ ^ User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 11:15, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

I intend to fu-cherish her with all of my heart. Teddy Dan, yo. 11:22, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
I hear crickets. Teddy Dan, yo. 14:08, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Not only no...[edit]

... but hell no. I will never RFA.

  • 1: I don't have the resources to know anything new before anyone else, and so I don't see myself meeting the 100 non-talk/feedback edits aside from grammatical fixes.
  • 2: I wouldn't take it seriously. Why not? Because there are others who make a mockery of the position simply by being part of it. Were I to hold any position of authority, I would want it to be one of righteousness and maturity. Certain individuals within such position of authority flaunt an absolute lack of either, which leaves me to question the overall seriousness of any enforcement of any rule or guideline. I couldn't honestly join a group which contradicts itself. Now, several of the members within the position are just fine. They question rather than harass, inform rather than troll. They exhibit both maturity and usefulness well. It's unfortunate that they so often be judged so harshly as a collective due to the bad seeds. I wouldn't want my own sincerity to be so questioned as a result of another's folly.
  • 3: I'm easy to goad. I'm irritable and I'm very stubborn in my struggle to be clear and understood. I am much like a mirror. I present myself in the same manner others present themselves to me. If you're nice to me, I'm nice to you. If you're an @$$, I'll be an @$$. Speak to me like a child and I will return the favor. Speak to me like an adult and I'll do the same.
  • So, all in all, it would be in both my and this wiki's best interest that I not be given the power to ban someone. I would likely abuse the power on a fellow admin simply for justice... and maybe some lulz. Teddy Dan 11:08, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
Justice is what the Arrogant call it when taking Revenge. --BriarUser Briar Sig 3.jpgThe Spider 08:09, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Arrogance is what the self-centered call it when others encourage justice. Teddy Dan 09:24, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
and self-centered is what an auto-leveler does when making an object horizontal. It is also what a biscuit calls itself when jam is set in the middle. --Xu Davella 09:33, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Or what a pendulum calls itself when it stops moving. Teddy Dan 09:38, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
I'd care and all but then I would never pass RFA. Oh wait. - Infinite - talk 11:46, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Were I somehow nominated, I'd vote against me too. Teddy Dan 15:46, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

ROFL. Well, since you put it that way... Also, now that I think about it, Budger was right outside Sifhalla. There's no reason the native norn wouldn't experiment with his... tools. Teddy Dan 21:41, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
