[[Talk:Minister of Silly Walks]][edit]

Why did you make this page? Aqua (T|C) 22:02, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

I'm guessing he was asking/pointing out Minister of Silly Walk's Monty Python reference. --Moto Saxon 22:05, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
But there is no main space page linked to the talk page (and there never was). It's an orphaned main space talk page, and if he wanted to comment on that, there are/were better places (i.e. in Mgrishpon's sandbox talk.) Just because a link exists to a page with a name that has nothing to do with GW2 doesn't mean you should create the talk page because someone linked to it. Aqua (T|C) 22:19, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
no i didnt make the page - it was a link from the skills page bit - where people are trying to design the layout for skills once the game is released - delete the page - i just added the discussion cause i found it funny Getefix 23:08, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
By create I mean make the first edit. 'Tis okay, no real harm done. :) Aqua (T|C) 23:10, 18 March 2011 (UTC)


moved from Talk:Mesmer

wouldn't it be funny if the scholar profession was the last to be revealed and wasn't the mesmer? XD Getefix 19:38, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

I would be pissed. But that's just me. Zolann The IrreverentUser Zolann The Irreverent Mysterious Summoning Stone.png 19:52, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
I would not like that.--'Mai Yi' {TC} 21:13, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
That ain't gonna happen.--Ph03n1x 01:02, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I like mesmer, but with the lack of interrupts, hexes, and an need for energy management in GW2 (so far), I don't think mesmer will be much like it's GW counterpart if those things stay the same. ~ Reez 01:05 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Its hard to see but there is more to mesmers then hexes/interupts. The gw1 Necro profession is heavy on the hexes aswell and they made it. Thinking mesmers will make more use of spells, to replace old gw1 hexes/enchantments, and use conditions/boons to mimic the hex effect. Blind/blackout/crippled/immobilized/vulnerability/weakness & swiftness/another boon that would augment skill use. Mesmers will without a doubt get an exclusive condition to best replicate what gw1 mesmers have a ton of that cant really be replicated without flat out using hexes. Chaos, my guess at its name and could involve slower activation time for target, increased activation time for those using spells against target, or simply degen. Well...just look at guardian wards and theifs stealing, never saw those coming and I think the mesmer will fall into that line. Please give us an illusion magic spell that creates multiple mirrors of ourselves as decoys! Justice 04:04, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
I would really like that kind of illusions myself too :p --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 06:53, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
I would leave this section on the Mesmer talk page were it able to die on its own, but people keep commenting. So here's saying "please keep it off the mainspace talk pages." --ஸ Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 16:56, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

i do use it, if you look, the pages were all different, i was moving moving the builds to individual character pages and i had to go back and change my main page each time i did so - sorry, ive made most if not all of the changes now so RC should quiet down Getefix 16:21, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

User Categories[edit]

Do we really need a category for every biography question choice? A couple user categories is good, but some/many of these are really unnecessary. When would a person ever need a list of all users who have a noble human? In the thought of "This user's human is noble", I figured I would provide a calculation here of how many categories you could generate, just to show how out of hand this could get. We would have 5 (races) x 2 (genders) x 8 (professions) x ~3 (profession choice questions) x 3 (personality) x ~4 x4x4 (choices for race questions.) Ignoring all character story options beyond character creation, we owuld have 46080 categories that took the form: "This user's <personality> <gender> <race> <profession> is a member of <totem/college/background/etc.>, <prof response> and <race 1 response> and <race 2> response." Maybe it's just from the agitation, but, seriously, we do not need this many over specific categories. Race ones are fine, profession ones are fine, personality ones might be fine. After that, I think it goes beyond the necessary amount. (Don't take this as "Don't make userboxes." Make as many userboxes as you like, just don't make each and every single one have it's own category.) Aqua (T|C) 20:21, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

On that note, the plurals for the races are; asura, charr, humans, norn and sylvari. Not asuras, charrs, norns and sylvaris. Also, races and professions are lower case. - Infinite - talk 21:06, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
And rever is spelled "revere". And deities names are capitalized. Aqua (T|C) 21:09, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
yes i know its spelled revere - ive already had that discussion, i said asurans not asuras but now i know thank you very much, and i wasnt the one who first started creating these, i saw the sylvari winter and autumn one with their own categories, so i thought why not make a spring one? and i know that names are capitalised, i was tired when making them, besides the word gods or the god of war are lower case, God is just capitalised because its a name Getefix 22:04, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
EDIT and if you havnt checked, look how many userboxes there are on the original wiki Getefix 22:05, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
My problem is not with the userboxes, its with the amount of categories you are making, again, make as many userboxes as you want. (Also, the "it's this way on GWW" is generally frowned upon. It demonstrates a lack of a legitimate supporting point.) Aqua (T|C) 23:33, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
and saying that means YOU havnt got a legit argument, whats wrong with creating categories? i want people to be able to find my userboxes and use them if they want Getefix 15:57, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
People are trying to keep categories organized right now (as far as I'm aware), and (regardless of whether they are or not) adding a ton that only link together userboxes is just clutter for them to sort through. If they can find one of your userboxes, they can probably find the rest. Or maybe we can make a category for userbox pages. In short please keep new categories to a minimum; there are other more convenient ways to link them together. --ஸ Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 16:49, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
The more categories that are being created, the more likely it will become we will stop bothering with them and ditching them with no maintenance in the Users category. I rather we keep even user categories (which are not aiding this wiki in ANY way) in an organized manner within the Users category. The nobility userbox, for instance, can also just categorize as "Users who are human", or something. - Infinite - talk 16:53, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
if you guys want, you can move all my userboxes to a big getefix category Getefix 16:58, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
That is not what should happen either. I know we sound naggy, but it's just the amount of categories that would have to be made along the standards you used. The amount of userboxes is fine, but the amount of categories is overdoing it. :) - Infinite - talk 17:07, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Being one of the people (albeit to a significantly lesser degree than others) who helps with category organization, the amount of categories you have generated (especially the ones that have to be renamed/deleted) is excessive. You can make as many userboxes as you want, but please, don't add categories to them. (And if you want people to find your userboxes, add a link to them on your userpage.)
