Welcome back!

Welcome back, Inc. It's good to have you. Also, first post on the fresh new page! 🎉🎉🎉 —Ventriloquist 00:19, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, Vent! Glad to be back. :> Gotta tackle the lack of equipment imagery soonish! User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 15:51, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
Aye, welcome back! Sadly the lack of equipment pictures is mostly due to the untimely demise of my computer, so I'm very happy you're back and can fix up the images! - Doodleplex 16:05, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! Can't believe you're still computerless! It's been months already, hasn't it! User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 16:08, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
Computers are expensive and my car died too. Car > computer. =/ - Doodleplex 16:09, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

Anything we can do?

Is there something we can do to stop the trend that's happening at the revision history of A Star to Guide Us? ~~Trevor95251 16:13, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Hey, I just asked Felix to protect the page for a bit, he said he'll look into it. Cheers for watching out! User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 16:13, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! Now to fix this stupid time stamp thing ~~Trevor95251 16:14, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
If there is a problem with vandalism, and constantly reverting it is only adding spam to the RC, please make use of GW2W:NOTICE to let admin know. While we appreciate your quick actions, it may be better to have an admin step in and handle the situation in one move rather than give the children the attention they're craving by entering into a revert war. G R E E N E R 16:25, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
Thank you, I wanted to do that but wasn't sure where to go ~~Trevor9525116:28, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Alternatively, you could ping any online admin on the our discord — sometimes it might even be faster than waiting for a reply here (especially if the RC watchers like Vent aren't around at that time). User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 16:40, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Discord is blocked for me but thanks for the suggestion ~~Trevor95251 18:06, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
Ah, fair enough. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 18:36, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Armour Galleries

Just wanted to swing by here and let you know how amazing it is to see the armour galleries filled out. While you may not be the only one working on them, that last big upload set you did the other day really helped. Oh, and there's this amazing new armour set which I'm guessing you haven't heard of, Luminous armor. You should totally check it out! :P G R E E N E R 16:37, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Ditto, great job. Inc's uploaded a fair few medium Luminous ones btw. --Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:01, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
Dammit, should have checked first instead of trusting my memory over her grumblings on Discord. G R E E N E R 17:18, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! I noticed that there's some Warbeast images lacking too still... Plus tons of outfits... :< User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 18:29, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
I would have logged in and done a few just now, but eotm is unreachable. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:37, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Wow you snuck all those outfit uploads in on a day when I wasn't looking at RecentChanges. Nice job. (P.S. if using Widget:Editing robot you can use newlines in the edit summary box, br's won't make the heading work properly example) -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 13:18, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks! Yeah, I noticed the br-tags didn't work the first time around, I have since learned my lesson, I swear! User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 14:17, 27 January 2019 (UTC)


Be that way! Darq self five ! -Darqam 12:00, 14 October 2018 (UTC)


I've had 3 server crashes within the last hour. How do I fix this? Im pushing a higher end router to keep up with internet and gaming speed. Im getting tired of having to restart missions over.

Hi! I'm sorry, I have no idea — I'm not really into technical details, unfortunately. :( You could try the GW2 subreddit or use the game support, they should be able to help you! Hope your issue resolves itself soon. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 18:47, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

Chairs screenshots

Good afternoon o/

I've noticed that the pictures for quite a lot of chairs are missing. From the ones that lack pictures, I have:

So I was wondering if there was some sort of guideline for how to take acceptable quality pictures, kind of similar to the guidelines for weapons, armor and such (which I'm not sure where I found last time). I suppose that the characters shouldn't have any armor nor infusions with effects on, but is there also a default spot to take pictures at? Other stuff I'm not aware of? Thanks in advance! Myriada (talk) 15:26, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Late note: For some reason I thought that you were the go-to person about the subject, but now I can't remember if maybe it was another user. Sorry if this was a bit out of place ç-ç Myriada (talk) 15:36, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
Hey there, no worries, I'll try to be of assistance! To answer your question, we're currently lacking a chair meta, and as such a designated screenshot place, but I think you're spot on applying the usual guidelines for equipment images (no armour, no infusions, facing the light, daylight shots, neutral background, post-processing off, vertical sliders set to zero if applicable and adjusted to character height). From the top of my head, I'd either suggest taking images in Lion's Arch near the shore at Fort Marriner with a wall or water (if there is any such spot) in the back, or in the Lost Precipice guild hall. Maybe we can brainstorm a bit and find a more suitable location together. Hope this helps!
By the way, did you mean this guide perhaps? User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 15:51, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
Nice! Thanks for the link and the summary of things to take into account. I'll schedule some photo sessions throughout the week and get something together by the weekend :> Myriada (talk) 16:19, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
Awesome, thank you for tackling this! :D User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 16:25, 30 July 2019 (UTC)


I forgot to mention that I added you to Discord, so feel free to add me again (I'm using the white cat on the table meme as an avatar, lmao) ThomasStarr (talk) 15:46, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

Oh, that was you? My apologies! I checked the wiki discord and what not and couldn't link a person to the name. Can you resend the invite? I forgot the digits of your username. :< User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 07:48, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
Done, check discord. My username is King Gaeileo ThomasStarr (talk) 12:01, 14 September 2019 (UTC)


Thanks for moving the gif to the right place, I admit I screwed it there. I freaking love you, girl.ThomasStarr (talk) 05:12, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

De nada^^ Thanks for uploading it! User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 17:21, 20 September 2019 (UTC)


You might recall that we tossed the idea of some new RFAs around in the Discord a few weeks ago, and as nothing's happened in the meantime that would change my mind, I would like to formally nominate you as a candidate for joining the admin team. It's clear to me, and I'd hope to the rest of the team, that you would use the tools responsibly, that you would handle user disputes fairly, and that you would represent our community in the best positive light, both on the wiki and off. I furthermore admire your restraint when facing personal conflict and your willingness to argue for people and viewpoints that you feel are being overlooked, both valuable traits that would be very welcome additions in our administrative discussions. If you're willing to accept, please reply here and I'll get the ball rolling on your RFA page. - Felix Omni 00:45, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

I second this. - Doodleplex 01:05, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
I feel honoured by your words, thank you both kindly! I hereby accept the nomination. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 08:16, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
The RFA is up! Feel free to add a candidate statement, but in my personal opinion, I don't think it's going to be open for very long. ;) - Felix Omni 14:53, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
Heya Inc, just wanted to let you know that your RfA was successful, so congratulations for that! Also good to see another German on the list ;) poke | talk 22:42, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
Grats, Inc! Get ready to smash some spambots. —Ventriloquist 23:52, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
Congrats Inc! I know you'll do a great job! :D —Idris User Idris signature.png 07:43, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
Thank you all! I promise I won't let you down!
Now to familiarise myself with the new tools... User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 09:03, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Yeah so

you clearly dislike me, so I would request you ask someone else to time me out, if you're going to do so. Thanks! horrible | contribs 12:36, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

I neither like nor dislike you, Horrible. If you feel uneasy by me taking action, I can give Alex a holler though. However, how about we just keep things civil and less personal for now. Thank you. :) User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 12:40, 13 June 2020 (UTC)
That is categorically untrue, as our previous interactions over discord have shown. It also shows that you're too close to the situation to accurately judge. horrible | contribs 12:42, 13 June 2020 (UTC)
Please elaborate as to why this is "categorically untrue". I'm not really close to the situation in any way or form either, so I'm not quite certain what you mean. Once more, please elaborate, so I can understand you and your points better. Thanks. :) User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 12:43, 13 June 2020 (UTC)
Unfortunately I'm not able to supply conversation logs from the discord, but I would request you scroll up to the final conversation I took part in in both the random and discord administration channels. I recall several comments from you in direct response to me that were less than constructive, though I suppose I could be wrong. horrible | contribs 13:02, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

(Reset indent) That's a pity, as I am no longer present on the wiki discord either. Your response just now sadly does not supply enough information to prove the points you made above, unfortunately. If you perceived my previous interactions as indicators for my distaste of you, then I truly regret that. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 13:18, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

Then I suggest you ask one of the other sysops or bcrats to do so. Your willful inability to locate the information is not my fault. horrible | contribs 13:20, 13 June 2020 (UTC)
Inc having previously criticized your behavior in an adminly capacity and/or disagreed with you in a previous discussion does not rise to the level of a personal bias against you. If it did, no admin would be able to do their job for very long. I have seen no indication that Inc has any problem with you, only with your actions when they become disruptive, which is literally her job. - Tanetris (talk) 13:40, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

RFA vote comment

Hey Inc, I hope you’re okay with me moving your RFA vote comment to the talk page. While you have done a good job trying to make it readable within the vote list, I think just the size alone justifies putting it separately so that it does not completely drown everything else on the RFA page. poke | talk 17:22, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

That's totally fair. I do apologise for the length! I tried to keep it within reason. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 17:47, 14 June 2020 (UTC)
No need to apologize! I think it was a very well written comment and it shows that you really thought about it a lot :)
I’m glad that you don’t mind the move because I realized that it could have been seen as some kind of censorship which definitely wasn’t my intention! poke | talk 17:54, 14 June 2020 (UTC)


Fwiw (PNJ) is the ES equivalent of our (NPC). It wasn't formatted right, and the article for the NPC doesn't exist anyway, but it probably didn't merit a rollback. - Felix Omni 21:13, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Ah, I see! My bad. I went to the page and it was empty, so I figured it was a mistake. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 21:16, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Actually, a little bit of sleuthing suggests that an ES contributor might be in the process of creating that NPC's article. I'll keep an eye on it and replace the interwiki link if they do. - Felix Omni 21:17, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
There's no harm in leaving interwikis in for the Spanish wiki. Means they're likely to be made soon(tm). If anything double check with me, I usually know where everything is over there. ;) - Doodleplex 22:15, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

On my potential adminship

Hey Inc, it sounds like we may have misunderstood each other a little in the discussion on high standards over on Tanetris's RfA, so I wanted to drop in an expound on exactly what my concerns are:

  1. My activity levels on the wiki tend to fluctuate a lot -- sometimes I'm super active and involved, posting grand ideas to the community portal and drafting up big articles, and other times I barely touch it, logging in once or twice a week to do low-key maintenance edits for months at a time. I know myself well enough to know this behavior is unlikely to change any time soon, and I genuinely don't know if that's acceptable to the community. In my previous RfA, the voters seemed cool with it, but Tanetris's RfA has made me wonder if the bar is being moved higher.
  2. I'm not ready to go back to Discord yet. I need to know if that's going to interfere with my ability to be properly involved in group discussions amongst the admin team, because I absolutely want to be part of the team.

As you can see, the actual difficulty and thanklessness of the role isn't what bothers me. In retrospect I can see how my use of terms like "intimidating" may have given that impression, though. I do understand why you don't want to romanticize the role, and I thank you for being transparent about it -- but I think it's possible to be both realistic and positive. I hope you're having a nice day despite all the tedious politics going on right now! :) —Idris User Idris signature.png 22:05, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Hey Idris, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to give you input, but I think I can at least answer concern number two, speaking from my own perspective:
I left the Discord a while ago and it's been fine so far. Users will reach out to you in different ways or interact more on the wiki, which is nice. As for admin discussions, sure it's a bit annoying to be out of the loop and you'll feel a bit like some kind of vigilant user with admin powers (I pretty much felt taken back to how things were when I wasn't an admin), but otherwise, you don't really miss out on much. Since admins are supposed to act individually for the most part and team decisions are not the norm (as far as I understood Greener), there shouldn't be any issues either.
Regarding activity... to me, it would be problematic and most likely give me grounds for opposition. But hey, that's just me. Who knows what other people think.
Also, I'm sorry again if I came across as abrasive. That wasn't the intention.
Positivity isn't my strongest suit, unfortunately. The bit I had suffered some with everything going on right now.
Have a nice day as well. :) User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 22:22, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
You didn't have to give your input, but thank you for doing so all the same! And I understand if you're finding positivity difficult to dredge up right now. 2020 has been nuts. —Idris User Idris signature.png 22:33, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Tane's RFA

Hey Inc, I debated if I should write this or not... but after some thought, I decided it couldn't do any harm at least. I just wanted to say that I'm aware we don't really know each other and as such are not familiar with one another's communication styles. So I wanted to take the time to say that I know how I write can come off as somewhat pointed at times. It's not my intent. I just quite like debating things. So I just wanted to take the time to say that despite the fact that we hold different views on some things, my commentary to you on tane's RFA, is not intended to be a personal barb at you and has no bearing on my oppinion of you. I've seen your work here on this wiki and I can see how beneficial you are to its working and the community at large. I hold you in nothing but the highest regard and respect all the things you do for the wiki. I'm aware this was all probably an unneeded message, but I just wanted to touch base, as I remember how I sometimes lose my more personal way of presenting myself... when I get into a debate. Anyway I hope you're doing well. Kind Regards -- Salome User salome sig2.png 22:38, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for reaching out, Salome! I appreciate it and I'm flattered to be regarded this highly by such an seasoned veteran as yourself. I was a bit worried if what I said affected you on a personal level and inspired your responses, but I'm glad that's not the case. However, I'm a bit sad about your last comment to me, since it doesn't really reflect what I intended to say. Perhaps I just wasn't clear enough in my wording. I hope we'll understand each other better going forward though. :) User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 22:57, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
My apologies for taking what you said, the wrong way. From how I interpreted your statement in the first instance, it seemed to be what you said, however in re-reading I can see that it can clearly be read a different way and I'll endeavor to work on that. I will say, I do tend to be quite oppinionated and I tend to throw myself into debates wholeheartedly; I genuinley don't mean harm by it, but that's not a way of me giving myself license to be a dick. I will endeavor to put abit more of my actual self into my posts with you going forward; as I gernuinley do enjoy debating with you. I've been familirsing myself with the wiki and its active user base of late, and have seen you to be an incredibly competent and helpful admin and user, who cares deeply about the wiki. I honestly deeply respect that and on a personal level you come across as a kind, considerate and intelligent person; who I personally like(to what ever degree one can on the internet) .
So, although I do intend to continue to debate points with you and I look forward to you rebutting my points forcefully, please know that none of that undercuts the regard I hold you in. I will however work more on how I interpret things and take the time to consider your points from more perspectives. Anyway, really and honestly... the very kindest of regards to you. (hugs) -- Salome User salome sig2.png 23:23, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
That's really kind and I appreciate it very much! :) Wishing you a nice and relaxed weekend. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 10:14, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

Raven ceremonial amor

Careful, the shoulders are a gem store item, not part of the ceremonial set! —Idris User Idris signature.png 18:18, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

Ugh. Maybe I should wake up a little. :( User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 18:19, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
Lol, it happens. Maybe grab a snack or a drink before coming back to it. :) —Idris User Idris signature.png 18:20, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

Sorry. That was perhaps poor taste of me to upload over the top without initiating discussion.

If you feel strongly about it, I'm obviously fine with having my edit reverted mercilessly, however I did feel that the proposed image was an extremely saturated/vivid blue, and the current header background is ripped from the main texture of (albeit with the wiki's #F3F3F3 versus #FFFFFF background), which is imo consistent. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 21:29, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
