Haither

So, you thinks Warw will migrate here? --- Ohaider!-- (s)talkpage 21:16, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

o: Felix Omni Signature.png 16:29, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

So like

I spent the time that GuildWiki has been down this morning reading every single policy proposal here, and I think my opinions on all of them are as such:

  • Elections are dumb, democracy is dumb. Everyone should always be appointed to everything forever until they prove it was a bad choice through their own actions.
  • Anyone who has the Delete capability should be free to use it at their own discretion; sysops are chosen because the bureaucrats and the community at large believe they are capable of making intelligent, informed decisions quickly. Imposing an arbitrary time limit and some nonsensical code system is needless clutter and hassle.
  • User pages should be totally unrestricted in regards to size and largely unrestricted in regards to content. The largest userpage I've ever seen was 150kb anyway.
  • Guild pages are only fun to design if you get to design them.

That's all, I guess. Felix Omni Signature.png 14:23, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Testing new sig method

I can't see why it wouldn't work, but it's always best to know for sure, right? Felix Omni Signature.png 01:05, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

LOL :P

Your page is awesome dude :) Gdz! --User: Blood StainBloodStain 19:44, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

You might find GW2W:DEL more useful than the raw category, since it sorts the entries by date and by subject. The three-day and speedy things are kinda remnants from GWW, but they're still useful in their own right - some people tend to tag stuff like userpages or vandalism as speedy, and you get an idea of how long something's been tagged for. --pling User Pling sig.png 19:51, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Oh nifty, tyvm. Felix Omni Signature.png 18:31, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Would you mind if I changed the filename to "User Felix Omni Starfleet-logo2.png" and added the {{user image}} template to the file? It would help in keeping things organized (and Star Trek FTW : D). Erasculio 00:24, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

I don't mind as long as you update the template for me too. I'm a lazy butt. Felix Omni Signature.png 01:20, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
Eh, I went ahead and did it already. Felix Omni Signature.png 03:32, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Copyright Violation

That image is not a copyright violation. That image has been on the internet for the past year, but we didn't know it was GW2 art until The Art of Guild Wars 2 was released. The image itself is NOT a scan. http://ballistic.cgnetworks.com/bsw/bigImage.php?image=88082-- Shew 16:10, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

That link just shows plaintext ???. If I misread your statement on the talk page and the scan was not the source of the image, then it can probably be restored. Felix Omni Signature.png 16:12, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
One sec.-- Shew 16:13, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
The parentheses messed it up. Fixed.-- Shew 16:14, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
Well I checked the link on the image talk page anyway and realized what you were talking about, so I would agree now that it's covered under the concept art license since the image was released separately and in advance of the book itself. Sorry for the confusion. I'm a member of your facebook group btw. Felix Omni Signature.png 16:17, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
Simply a misunderstanding...np!-- Shew 16:17, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

U1

Speedy deletion U1, User Request. Nervous habit from the old wiki. --User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 22:49, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

I more or less knew that. =P I'd rather people didn't use the codes here since they're meaningless to anyone who isn't from GWW, but of course I can't really stop people from tagging things however. I could be really anal and start ignoring deletions tagged with codes, or leave snarky little notes like "proper rationale required," but that would be even more counterproductive than looking up the codes. Felix Omni Signature.png 05:18, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
Still a nervous habit for me. >.>. I can tell a code instantly but when someone writes out a long explanation it just.....gets mildly irritating. Thats just me though. :\ --User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 00:59, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Comment

"Yes, it's admittedly spam, but you shouldn't remove other users' comments." Just curious, but why is that the case with spam?-- Shew 02:28, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

When it comes to spam, you have to differentiate between harmful spam (ads, vandalism, obscene fanfics, and the like) and friendly spam. You also have to consider who posts the spam. In this case, the spampetrator is an IP with several valid (though not particularly inspired) edits merely contributing to a pleasant (but pointless) conversation, maybe with a friend of his. Really, there's no significant difference between that post and me going over to User talk:Emmett and saying "Hey buddy what's up?"
That being said, if the comment you'd removed was something like "buy more viagrox www.viagrox.com" then I would have no objections. It's just that I don't see a need to remove a friendly comment from a known contributor, even if it's pointless. Felix Omni Signature.png 21:05, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
Ah, my mistake then.-- Shew 21:27, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
I wouldn't call it a mistake, really. Just something you didn't think about before. :) Felix Omni Signature.png 01:16, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

Note

I think User request sounds better than Uploader as User seems more appropriate. Just a thought, as it's what I added to the guild's wiki. Ariyen 09:49, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

It's meant to mirror the article drop-down's "Author request." Any user could request any image to be deleted on a whim, but only the uploader's request should matter. Felix Omni Signature.png 18:43, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

I know you're here. <3 I just wanted to have a Q_Q at the possible loss of pling. -- Aspectacle User Aspectacle.png 03:21, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

<3 Felix Omni Signature.png 04:39, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Can I get a source?

Specifically for the claim you made here that it is known the Ebon Vanguard will be in GW2? I have never heard of this, and even if it is so, 90% of that article (that it was pushed south, that it is all that remains of Ascalon's forces, and that it is in Ebonhawke) is speculation. -- Konig/talk 18:40, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

By the way, there was support for deleting the article on the talk page, so maybe the tag shouldn't have been removed. -- pling User Pling sig.png 21:43, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Seems rather obvious that Ebonhawke would be the stronghold of the Ebon Vanguard, but I suppose I'll leave the specifics to the lore freaks. I removed the delete tag because whenever I leave them, nothing happens for weeks, by which point no one cares anymore anyway. But yes, I see your points, and I would not object to replacing the delete tag, or even deleting. Felix Omni Signature.png 05:41, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
"Seems rather obvious that Ebonhawke would be the stronghold of the Ebon Vanguard" Actually, it isn't obvious, and it most definably isn't proven. It's speculation and the only similarity is Ebon which simply means earth/black. I guess all Ebon modded weapons belong to the Ebon Vanguard too then? That's the same argument, to be honest. Anyways, I reworked the article to remove speculation except in the note, so it follows the other articles in [[:Category:Articles possibly not relevant to GW2]]‏‎. As it stands now, it holds as much water (and reasons for being deleted) as the other articles in that category. -- Konig/talk 12:34, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
Looks good to me. Felix Omni Signature.png 21:48, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Hey

I've known Barek for a while and he's straight up enough to log in to do this sort of thing. We don't have check user over here, but if you know it's truly him, go for it. — Gares 06:15, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

I think it's at least reasonable to assume that the requests came from Barek- GWW and GW2W have separate login cookies, so it's easy to assume you're logged in here when you're actually not. It would be a strange sort of vandalism to pick out one particular user's userspace pages.
On the other hand, since you know Barek and I do not, I would have no problem restoring the pages and waiting for a logged-in confirmation if you think it would be the wiser course of action. Addendum: In fact, after looking over recent changes, I'm gonna go ahead and do that anyway. Felix Omni Signature.png 06:24, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
Yeah. Seemed weird that a vandal would pick an old, unused account like his. Also, I just Whois'd the Ip and it is from Washington state. IRRC, Barek was near Seattle, so yeah, chalk it up to probably being paranoid. — Gares 06:32, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
I went ahead and deleted everything the IP marked as deletion, including your restores. Like you said, can always restore them if we need to. — Gares 06:39, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
Case closed. Felix Omni Signature.png 06:59, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
I think Barek tagged his GWW userpages for deletion too. -- pling User Pling sig.png 15:59, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Category:Mammals

"We don't even know if these creatures are mammals" - I think we know humans are mammals, I think we know that moles (thus what are based off of moles, dredge) are mammals, I think we know apes (thus what are based off of apes, grawl) are mammals. I think we know felines (and charr are called felines) are mammals, I think we know humans and horses (and thus the mix of the two) are mammals, I think we know rats (and thus skritt) are mammals, and I think we know bears (thus kodan) are mammals. Why delete that category without 1) removing said category from the pages and 2) without discussion? It isn't really speculation but logic and reasoning. If one thing is a mammal, another that is an altered state of the first is most likely a mammal. Anet has some form of realism to their works - they keep physics in their game and even magic in GW can be defined and defended in a realistic way without breaking the laws of physics in the fictional world (that is, the world is fictional as is magic, but they don't break the laws, even if physics themselves don't really exist there). I don't see why you and Erasculio have to be so hard core and, to be frank, irrational with simplistic, and rather obvious, things. -- Konig/talk 19:47, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

My evidently controversial choice of deletion summary does not change the fact that a mammal category is entirely without merit and should not exist on this wiki.
First, I'll argue from a utilitarian standpoint. Does GuildWiki have a mammal category? Does GWW have a mammal category? Would a mammal category be useful in any way, shape, or form? Will there be a Xenophobic Greatsword of Mammalslaying? Will certain classes have extra armor against mammals? What about marsupials? I suppose we should categorize NPCs based on weight and color as well.
Now, I'll argue from a logical standpoint. The Guild Wars universe has sentient beings that are not animals, that are not even organic! The biological classifications that scientists on earth proposed hundreds of years ago are completely inadequate for such a situation- frankly, they can't be applied at all. What makes you think that life on Tyria (or the world we call Tyria) evolved in such a way that a large group of creatures living there happen to share the exact same characteristics as the ones living on earth? The very suggestion is preposterous. Indeed, arguably apart from "humans," your proposition that these creatures are mammals is based entirely on their appearance, which is an absolutely abysmal method for scientific classification. Now, perhaps your definition of irrational is different than mine, but it seems to me that you're the one who isn't thinking these things out.
Now, you ask why I deleted the category "without discussion." The category was a candidate for deletion for 9 days, and no one cared enough to start a discussion. The talk page was uncreated. It was my view that the category was useless, and upon seeing that there was absolutely no opposition, I deleted it.
As for removing the category from individual articles, I essentially forgot. I'll do it now, thank you for reminding me. Seems to have been done already. Felix Omni Signature.png 11:44, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
On GWW, while there is no "Mammals" there are gw1:Category:Reptiles, gw1:Category:Birds, and gw1:Category:Arthropods - your utilitarian argument loses when those are brought up as, like with mammals, there is no "Reptileslaying" or "Birdslaying" in GW1. For your logicial standpoint, if you were to look at gw1:Category:Species, you'd note that those which cannot be classified as an animal do not go under gw1:Category:Animals, because they are, in fact, not animals by how they are defined. If there are animals but do not fit (to our knowledge) any of the other settings, they go under Animals. If they do fit another setting, they go under that setting. Such as charr under Felines on GWW, and over here charr under mammals. And for the record, I would not be against a mammals category on gww.
Just to note: I didn't base it off of appearance, but rather charr off of being felines (and felines are a type of mammal), humans being mammals, apes being mammals (and thus grawl being "ape-like" as stated in lore), Ree stating asura are mammals, and so forth. For centaurs, I based that off of what they reference which is indeed fallible. And the discussion did exist, but was on Erasculio's talk page (as that was brought up when bringing up other things on his crusade to delete all of my categorization changes). So sorry that I forgot to have a single discussion in multiple places. -- Konig/talk 22:33, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
But it doesn't matter, as it seems those who wish for a lore-based categorization alongside a mechanic-based categorization like on the GWW (so that those looking for lore are not forced to search through mechanics and other non-lore things) are the minority over here. -- Konig/talk 22:34, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Perhaps categories based on similarity to familiar creatures would be a reasonable compromise? Reptilian, Mammalian, etc. Felix Omni Signature.png 13:27, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Your userspace page

So I take it you're keeping that, then? :P User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.jpg A F K When Needed 22:25, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

War in Kryta

Hi, can I request a restoration of the Talk:War in Kryta page? It was deleted along with the original page (which was deleted because it was blanked by sole author), but it contained a pretty valuable not-quite-orphaned discussion on keeping GW1 content. --Santax (talk · contribs) 20:51, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

I skimmed over some of the discussions and I do not see a reason why this cannot be restored and placed in the Category:Orphaned talk pages for future reference. Done. — Gares 21:14, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
If only that category existed when I deleted it. D: Felix Omni Signature.png 00:41, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Broken Redirects

Good day to you! I was wondering what is more appropriate for these broken redirects. Is it more appropriate to tag them for deletion myself, or tell each user on his/her page the it is currently serving no use and let them sort it out. Probably more polite the latter way. Venom20 User Venom20-icon-0602-sm-black.png 22:59, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Just go ahead and tag them, most of those users are inactive. If you want to notify the ones that are active, you could do that. Felix Omni Signature.png 23:18, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

So apparently my connection sucks

I would like to ask some assistance, if I could. I uploaded an image [[:File:User venom20-venom.gif|here]]. The problem is that I cannot use it. I can't even load that page. I think it is because the file is too large, I grabbed the wrong image when I uploaded it. I would like to tag it for deletion, but I time out everytime I try to load the page. I was wondering if you could just delete it for me? Venom20 User Venom20-icon-0602-sm-black.png 02:50, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Done, without having to load the image. I am a magician, you see. Felix Omni Signature.png 03:15, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
I had heard rumors of your wizardry, now I have the proof I need!! Mwhahahah.... also, thank you Venom20 User Venom20-icon-0602-sm-black.png 03:47, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Felix Omni, Lord of all

This one has a question for your greatness. How does one apply to be/become a SysOp on this wiki? I was interested and I figured that I might as well ask you, oh great wizard. :) Aquadrizzt (talk)(contribs) 03:07, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

You must chop down the mightiest tree in the forest. Wiiiiiiiith... a herring! But actually, no one's been given sysop for any reason other than grandfathering yet, so there's no precedent whatsoever. I guess you could just suck up to the bureaucrats.

The drop-down list only has a couple of options and we don't want to inflate it much, so when I delete large amounts of pages I just choose the one closest to the truth. What are the sub-templates? Felix Omni Signature.png 07:46, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
