A courtesy

Hi folks.

This is something of an open letter so to speak. I'd ask as a courtesy that you refrain from editing my user page. If you take exception to my usage of the f word on my user page, let me know here and we'll talk about it - odds are I'll remove it; I've no plans of upsetting / annoying people.

It's not directed at anyone, it's just... me expressing myself. So, yeah that's about it. Not many policies here and I don't really know the powers-at-be, so I thought I'd write this just in case.

Thanks,

User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 18:45, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Sig redirects

They aren't importantly necessary - we don't have a policy that requires it, and they're not imperative for a signature to function. Also, a lot of the users you're asking don't even contribute here anymore. pling User Pling sig.png 15:06, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Yes we do...
I expect most of those contributors to return when the game comes out, or soon after / before. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 20:45, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
(I'm making the assumption that all policies are also "inactive proposals".)
NPA is, and I presume that gets enforced, so... User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 20:47, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
Inactive proposals are just that - proposals that didn't get consensus, so haven't been implemented. When the wiki was created, there was a rush of creating proposal after proposal. GW2W:NPA as a policy isn't enforced; the concept of not making personal attacks to disrupt situations or derail discussions is. Essentially, we've been using discretion to deal with the two or three issues that have come up in about two years. pling User Pling sig.png 21:38, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
So your saying theres no rule against PA? ..if so. ive got a job to do.--NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon5 Anti.png 21:53, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
But you'll still get banned IF you personally attack people ;). That there isn't a policy doesn't mean people should just go rampant (and rage). --Naoroji User Naoroji Golem - Green.jpg 22:00, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Lol Neil... "the concept of not making personal attacks to disrupt situations or derail discussions is [enforced]" :P --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 02:00, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Since I'm in that kind of mood, I wonder what's the difference between enforcing the spirit of the policy - compared to... enforcing the spirit of the policy. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 09:29, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Hey, I made a table with all of our respective nationalities and timezones...and after searching through your various accounts on the different wikis, I couldn't find your timezone or your nationality. Would you please put that information up on the aforementioned table, so that it is complete before I post it on the page. Thanks :) Aquadrizzt Main Page Designer 02:14, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Policies

Inactive Policies does not mean they don't have support or opposition. Inactive means that it's just not interesting to people or I should say - a policy for the wiki. I do think we should have some on this wiki and decide more on things like that. Especially if so many of us want to be different from gww... Why are we trying to use their policies? Ariyen 01:58, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

It's not a matter of forcing something, it's a matter of having standards which don't annoy the majority of users.
Flashing signature images, would annoy the majority of users. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 19:31, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

What's wrong with stacking bleeding?

Isn't it natural that one can bleed less or more? Plus, if two of the warrior's sword combo skills cause bleeding (as well as every other, with a trait), it's only fair. Just curious... ^ ^ User Loquay Sig.png 13:06, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

I don't particularly care about how realistic blood is in the game.

Yo RC Hawks, how ya doin'.

Should I make my main a good boy, or act like a douchebag to everyone? No, not yet decided on profession. It's an aspect new to the world of Tyria which sort of interests me. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 19:01, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

But while you're here; Guardian or Necromancer? User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 08:53, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

Guardian. Felix Omni Signature.png 08:56, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
Commando. Teddy Dan, yo. 09:07, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
Both. - Infinite - talk 23:13, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
How helpful :P I will have more than one character; I just want to stick to one while getting a feel of the game.
I'm all but certain it'll be a male Sylvari Necromancer.
Just wondering if it'll be one of their darker kin consumed by the nightmare or not. Both options are tempting. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 23:15, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
And here I was, thinking 9 characters are hard to plan ahead! - Infinite - talk 23:20, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Meh. Maybe later. I just find it... dull?
I've no problem spending frankly rediculous amounts of time planning my main character, but I'm not going to obsess over everything when I won't get my hands on the game for a year. I... I just want to be happy and satisfied with my first character. I deleted my main - Obsidian armor got salvaged, others merely de-Runed - to get the Survivor Title. I didn't regret the decision but... when I heard about the changes to Pre Searing, I was slightly disapproving of them. Needless to say, I did not recreate him all over again. I suppose +1 is enough for the God Walking; I don't need +2. Just it'd be nice. I do wish they'd tell us these kind of things in advance. They never seem to.
That's mostly off-topic, apologies. My point is, I want to be happy with all my choices regarding my first Necromancer. My first character in an MMORPG is always special. I like to keep them around; and if I'll be playing Guild Wars 2 much, it'd make my time more enjoyable if I could keep him. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 08:19, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
I feel the same way. My main/first for any applicable MMORPG (or just RPGs like D&D, don't hate) has always been a human ranger. Even if it takes completely breaking it so that it barely resembles a ranger, I will make it useful just to keep it. That may be more extreme, but I do understand how you feel about your first. I'd like to finish a whole campaign/story before having to split my attention between characters. It keeps the flow consistent, and I enjoy consistency in any story. Teddy Dan, yo. 08:31, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
Due to not having enough character slots to have one of every profession, plus another, I deleted my first instead of keeping him around.
I don't regret starting a new character, getting Survivor, and making it my main, but... the game wasn't as fun after deleting my first. I attribute it to being one of the main reasons I stopped playing. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 08:35, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
I came rather close to deleting my main in GW1, but chose not to. Fat lot of good that did me, since my 5th year was a stupid Manta (raged). My closest other is almost two years old. Due to certain nerfs and new professions, I've gone through quite a few characters. I do miss a few of my previously most useful characters, but what's done is done. May the rest in peace. I'll be wiser, this time around. Teddy Dan, yo. 09:03, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
tl;dr - I have 9 main characters. Damn. - Infinite - talk 10:37, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
Late but GUARDIAN! <3 --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 16:35, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
Whatever incentives they introduce in GW2 for players who keep their characters, it'd better not be a friggin' tonic. I'm so disappointed. Teddy Dan 16:45, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
Then sell it for a shit load of ecto. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 16:56, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
You gonna buy it? Teddy Dan 18:58, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
No but it's the 6th Anniversary (so few 6 year old characters) and there's 30 different types of tonic (so each one is rare) User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 20:41, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Character template

As Shew intends to delete his [[User:Shewmake/Template:Page|character template]] that you are using, I have copied it over, with minor modifications to "User:Konig Des Todes/Template/Character2". I will make a couple future alterations to the biography section and skillbar, which can be seen [[User:Konig_Des_Todes/Template/Character2#Future|here]] and [[User:Konig_Des_Todes/Sandbox#Current_sub-page_projects|here]]. Feel free to switch to my version of the template if you still enjoy that template's style over Shew's other templates. Konig/talk 06:12, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Hating friendingly

"SEVENTEEN minions at one time + Death Shroud + Lich Form + the scythe animation = win. My condolences to those who prefer a different profession." Scythe animation? I must be missing something (also doubt that you can use Death Shroud and Lich Form at once. :P) Konig/talk 23:14, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

I don't want to. The goal is to spend as much time being a special snowflake as possible, so I'll use one while the other recharges. And... y'know... occasionally actually be a Necromancer. :P I wasn't talking about a way to loloneshot people in PvP, but rather a ton of cool stuff - all of which was given to one profession.
Yes, scythe animation. It's seriously late, but I noticed your message and wanted to respond as soon as possible. I'll see about getting you a link after I've had some sleep.

Dynamic Trait list on Gorani's page

Thanks for offering the help. I am not sure if you got the initial reason for the dynamic table (which is probably my & not your fault). Noxx's tables for skills are great, because the dynamically collect the info from every single skill page (e.g. Flamewall) and add that to the table. So if the skill Flamewall will get changed in the future, there is no need to manually change values (e.g. the duration of burning) on each table you use. The Dynamic effect does that for you. The same should apply to Trait lists too. I should dynamically fetch the info from every single trait that is listed there and keep icons, effects etc. up to date. The table you have left on my Userpage needs manual input every time something is changed with a single trait. That would require the user of the table to keep up to date with every change, while I would like to see a dynamic component do the work for me. I hope I was as precise as possible, with the idea & intention behind the trait table (& perhaps I don't need that right now anyway, since hardly any traits are known today) Gorani 13:27, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Let's stop playing petty word games

Fixed width at least works to a reasonable degree on static websites, but on wikis, that don't have a custom fixed width skin, or even those that do have a custom fixed width skin, they are dumb. Look at the mass exodus of gaming wikis from wikia when they implemented it... You can't use the same design rules on a wiki as you can on a static website, and to try is bad. -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 21:10, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Define 'works'.
Perhaps I was mistaken, but I thought we were talking about what is aesthetically pleasing. I do not find fixed width websites aesthetically pleasing. Please refrain from trying to invalidate my personal preference on other fixed width websites(which is, at best, a tangent of the real discussion) just because it is different to that of your own.
Thanks. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.png A F K When Needed 21:23, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
I'm not trying to invalidate your personal preference on anything. By works, I mean doesn't look completely broken. Fixed width content in a traditional monobook skin looks broken. Which imo is NOT aesthetically pleasing. -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 02:43, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
I'm becoming more and more sure I never should have commented on that tangent. I was making two points. The first being that I don't particularly mind one page on the wiki having a fixed width. The second - unrelated - point being that I draw no distinction between fixed width wikis and other sites; the majority look horrible. Since you passed a comment on them I thought I'd thrown in my $0.02, but I'm thinking that was a mistake.
Anyway, until it is modified so that Tanetris likes it or a new design is agreed on it's probably not worth talking about. Although I do still contest your accusation of "petty word games". You passed comment on something, I responded to it. After that, I can only assume you forgot you'd mentioned other fixed width sites or misinterpreted what I said. But whatever.

New page

I like it, it's informative and artistic because of the resemblance with the official site and (sadly) the possible main page we're getting. Anyhow I like it for your user page (it does seem a bit cluttered though) P.S. maybe you should archive your talk a tiny bit ;) --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 00:59, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Holy! :)
You have a point. I'll consider halving the amount of text. The commentary on GW2W will probably go; but I'm not sure if people would be interested in my in-game plans any more than they'd be more interested in my thoughts on the wiki. Possibly even less so.
I've considered archiving my talk page for a while now, I just havn't gotten around to it. :P Soon, I promise! User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.png A F K When Needed 01:52, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

To be honest, I'm not sold on the headers. Perhaps if the icons were moved to the right (may look odd, probably not as bad if the headers were as tall as the icons), or if the icons had plain borders. The headers are tarnished and faded on the right, the images are on the left and looking tarnished.
I've always liked the way your icons look, but I feel at the moment the only bad thing I can say about the page is that the headers suggest you're not sure what to do with them. Make the headers just a little more consistent and I feel it'd really be something special! User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.png A F K When Needed 19:47, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
I'm afraid, I don't really get what your point is. What is inconsistent about them? (also, let's move this to my talk page) Alfa-R User Alfa-R sig.png 11:29, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
The headers are intact on the left and faded and worn on the right. The icons are on the left of the headers, and look scratched and tarnished. If it was later in the day, I'd be capable of using more appropriate words, but I hope you get what I mean.
It's not particularly important, but I had already voiced my support of that page, so I guessed you were interested in more detailed thoughts on it. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.png A F K When Needed 11:37, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh, that. I'm going to redo the icons any way, just wanted some thoughts on the strokes. Alfa-R User Alfa-R sig.png 11:49, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
The strokes are okay. Personally I think I prefer the editcopy style strokes (of whatever colour), but yours also fit the GW2 theme in a different way.
