Cleansing Wave.png Force of (Wiki) Nature
Congratulations for flooding the RC! Sure looks like you're having fun. ;P User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 14:33, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Kvothe should get honorary status as a bot account for the next couple hours. ;P —Idris User Idris signature.png 14:53, 12 June 2020 (UTC)

User Kvothe making waves.jpg I made some waves for you all to enjoy. —Kvothe (talk) 22:45, 30 August 2020 (UTC)


Hi, I just wanted to say extra thanks for pointing out or creating the Category:Locations missing a screenshot thing. This will be incredibly helpful, and will help distinguish between content stubs (missing info) and pages without a screenshot. Thank you!!!!! AnastashaRomanov (talk) 09:16, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Much appreciated though I merly documented it on the project page. It is the work of Chieftain Alex and was initiated by Sime on Discord. —Kvothe (talk) 11:19, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

RFA Nomination[edit]

Hello Kvothe! I already gave you a heads-up, but this time it's official! I hereby nominate you as a candidate for sysophood.
I think you're a level-headed, resolute, stable, earnest and active editor invested and well-known within the community. Having you on the admin team would be beneficial both for us and the wiki and fill the vacant position of patrolling/formatting sysop. Should you accept the nomination, you may head over to GW2W:RFA and start your RFA. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 07:40, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Thank you, for the nomination and the kind words, Inc! I'm happy to contribute to the best game wiki (while playing my favorite game - who would have guessed). It gets better each day bit by bit - or byte :P. I will try to come up with a good statement though I'm normally one of fewer words. —Kvothe (talk) 15:55, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

RFA Success[edit]

Congrats. Don't break anything. - Tanetris (talk) 12:29, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

Congratulations, Kvothe! Here's a semi-decent guide to get you started on sysoping: Help:Sysop guide. Otherwise, just ask away if you have any questions. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 13:27, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
That guide hasn't really been updated since 2011. If you see anything you'd like a quick explanation of, let us know and we can update it as we go along. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:21, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
That was quick. I expected at least another week. Been busy the last 5 days and I am catching up on everything that I missed. —Kvothe (talk) 18:57, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Few pages that need moving[edit]

Seems you're the mover in chief here now, so mark these for a visit:

  • Ancient Boreal weapon skins ("Ancient Boreal Axe (skin)" to "Ancient Boreal Axe")
  • Pinnacle weapons ("Pinnacle Reaver (skin)" to "Pinnacle Reaver")
  • Sovereign weapon skins ("Sovereign Eviscerator (skin)" to "Sovereign Eviscerator")
  • Zenith weapons ("Zenith Reaver (skin)" to "Zenith Reaver")

I checked all the skins (sans gem store stuff) and I haven't detected any further issues.--Lon-ami (talk) 14:47, 6 November 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for the list, I will do them in the next days. —Kvothe (talk) 19:46, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
Done. —Kvothe (talk) 15:19, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! I don't have time to cover the gem store skins right now, but when I do I'll tell you if I find any large cases like the ones above.--Lon-ami (talk) 18:20, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
Here's a few more, from the gem store, same problem as those before:
  • Dominator weapon skins
  • Dreamthistle weapon skins
  • Fused weapon skins
  • Lovestruck weapon skins
  • Merciless weapon skins
  • Tormented weapon skins
  • Zodiac weapon skins
There shouldn't be more sets with problems, so that would be it.--Lon-ami (talk) 16:28, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Soonest will probably be next weekend for me to look into these. Side note: It would be nice if you cleaned up the "What links here" when you move pages. —Kvothe (talk) 00:16, 15 November 2020 (UTC)
All done. —Kvothe (talk) 15:47, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Collection tables[edit]

Your edit reminded me that I'm not really happy with the hint text style. One could argue that your edit is actually decreasing the readability and furthermore introducing inconsistencies between the three collection tier tables.

So what about removing the "Hint" prefix and turning the italic text into plaintext? I think this should 1. be more readable and nicer to look at 2. more consistent. The only problem could be the to differentiate the hint text from the notes text - which is unfortunately sometimes very similar. Or only change one of them (prefix or italic), any ideas? --Tolkyria (talk) 17:04, 5 August 2021 (UTC)

Personally I would opt to keep the "Hint" prefix, but you can test to remove both. —Kvothe (talk) 09:33, 6 August 2021 (UTC)

Double redirect fix reverts[edit]

Usually double redirects are unwanted, so care to elaborate on reverting the double redirect fixes I made? 12:23, 16 August 2021 (UTC)

It is their userspace. And since we have so few - there is no need to change that. —Kvothe (talk) 12:26, 16 August 2021 (UTC)
Okay, I'm fine with that method. Although I like to be more consistent as I saw broken link fixes done on user pages other than its user, which falls into that category as well. Regarding Special:DoubleRedirects, if you check it, these are moves with redirect, so they should have been either fixed or deleted a long time ago in my opinion. 12:38, 16 August 2021 (UTC)
They're actually pages specifically to test how redirects work. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 16:30, 16 August 2021 (UTC)
