Ponies[edit]

Quick question: Was your post on Infinite's talk page meant to be an MLP reference, or was that just a coincidence? - TaxBrony 14:49, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Eeyup. ;) Gnarf 14:52, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Here, have a *brohoof*. Who's best pony in your eyes? - TaxBrony 15:32, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
(\ Derpy, of course. Gnarf 15:36, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Even over any of the Mane 6? AJ is my favorite, though Twilight and Pinkie are closely tied for 2nd. - TaxBrony 15:38, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Out of the Mane 6 it's Pinkie. We share the same craziness and are both able to defy the laws of physics. Gnarf 10:07, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Wow, that was a delayed response. XD But yeah, good choice. - TaxBrony 13:00, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Luna is best pony. O_o - Yandere Talk to me... 13:54, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

I like her too, but to state that she'd be the best pony, I'd have to see more of her. Sadly, she only got a few scenes. Maybe in season 3... at the San Diego Comic Con, they hinted something. Gnarf 14:03, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

I think it was more or less confirmed that we'd be seeing more of her. TaxBrony 14:32, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Infinite's technical issues[edit]

I'm so happy that it's a resolved issue now.... :P - Infinite - talk 15:37, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Glad it's working now. Maybe it was an issue with your ISP or region or something. - TaxBrony 15:39, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
I enabled the disabled antivirus, system defense, firewall, etc. software first (basically putting all protection back in place) and then disabled it all again. For some reason this backwards method resulted in a patching patcher. - Infinite - talk 15:41, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Weird. - TaxBrony 15:44, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
I agree. But, hey! It works now! - Infinite - talk 15:44, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Technology is a bitch. Gnarf 15:46, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Delete tags on vandalism[edit]

Hi! Just wanted to give you an advice on dealing with pages created by vandals. We usually keep the original content of vandalism on the page, unless it is somehow harmful. It helps admins to clearly see the page was vandalized on first look and they can delete it even more easily, or so they say. That's not to discourage you from more tagging, thanks for your help! User ***EAGLEMUT*** Signature.png ***EAGLEMUT*** TALK 14:13, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll remember that. Gnarf 14:16, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

How do I sign unsigned comments?[edit]

I often see unsigned comments. How can I add that "The preceeding unsigned comment was written by bla" tag? Gnarf 08:18, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

{{subst:unsigned|IP or username}} -Auron 08:26, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
Thank you! Gnarf 08:27, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
Or {{subst:unsigned2|timestamp|IP or username}} for which you can go to the page's history tab, highlight the timestamp and username for that revision, then copy/paste that into the template and insert the pipe between them. It's a little more work, but it provides the context of a timestamp, which is generally a Good Thing. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 14:07, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
Actually, no. If your time zone is not set to UTC in preferences, you have to manually adjust to the correct time. --zeeZUser ZeeZ Sig.png (talk) 20:31, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

Test, Test! --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Gnarf (talk).

Work[edit]

Thank you sir for your excellent work on conditions and boons. 213.63.137.36 13:51, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

I wouldn't call it excellent, but thanks. I try to work thoroughly. Gnarf 13:59, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Oh[edit]

I thought this was like GW1 so they could be masterless still. Previously Unsigned 21:08, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Now you know it better. That's the way life goes. Gnarf 21:11, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Memory Aid[edit]

moved to Talk:Elixir

New signature[edit]

I want a new signature. Is there an easy possibility to change it, without copypasting everytime I post a comment? Like, uhm, a template or something? Gnarf 18:52, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Special:Preferences. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 19:17, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Ohh, this... this is delicious! Thank you! El Psy Congroo 19:22, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
While you're free to pretty up your signature to your heart's content, please use your actual username. - Tanetris 19:30, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Done. — Gnarf ~ El Psy Congroo 19:35, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Right, I should have also linked you to the guidelines at Help:Signatures. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 19:59, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
With a bit of practice, you could even give yourself a cock like Dr Ishmael's --snogratUser Snograt signature.png 20:24, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

At first, I thought you meant something different. oO — Gnarf ~ El Psy Congroo ~ 20:26, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Actually, I've been waiting years to make that joke :D --snogratUser Snograt signature.png 20:34, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Suggestions and the people who make them[edit]

I am aware you mean well and this is just a piece of advice on how to deal with people trying to make suggestions on this wiki. I was around when the feedback section was created on GWW and I think I have pretty good insight into what it actually is. It is a black hole designed to suck in the constant torrent of ideas that people try to spew out everywhere else. Why is such a thing necessary? Because people spew out bad ideas all the time. They are often bad for multiple reasons; They have been suggested a thousand times before, they are completely impractical or ridiculous or the developers have already said that they don't want such a thing.

The people who suggest them are often completely unreasonable about their suggestion and how important they think it is. It is usually completely futile to try and convince them, logically or otherwise, that their suggestion is bad or pointless. Before the feedback section was implemented GWW talk pages were plagued with suggestions and massive arguments about the viability, practicality and merits of these suggestions. The feedback section buried this in its own little part of the wiki forever. I admit that some of these ideas will be read by the developers and sometimes even implemented, but it is a purgatory designed to stop such things from detracting from the wiki itself. As such, whenever someone tries to make a suggestion anywhere, the best course of action is simply to send them there, along with any delusions of importance, to shout into the void. The reality is, that even good suggestions are often lost due to the shear volume of passionate people trying to help developers. This rings true of any developer and any game and the reality is, unless one finds a way to directly talk to someone or already have huge influence and presence in the community(such as professional gamers), one requires an inordinate amount of luck to be heard.

I would advise you in the future when you encounter such things to simply redirect people to either the feedback section on GWW or to the official forums. It will reduce pointless discussions on this wiki that won't actually change anything and could prevent you from wasting time and energy in trying to convince zealots of the error of their ways. Happy editing and keep up the good work! Misery 09:56, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Makes sense to me and is understood. — Gnarf ~ El Psy Congroo ~ 11:44, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
