now... wait a minute... why is there only part of the song there? :)...Teleios 20:58, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

It's my favorite section, and the whole ting would take up way to much space. Thanks for noticing! Mat Cauthorn 03:51, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
I WAS gonna post a comment like "nice name" or something... but then I realized that I already did that... sorry... but just making sure you know that the next Wot book is coming out nov. 3... just in case you care...Τελέως 01:00, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
Haha, thanks! Good to know. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 13:58, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

I took the freedom to edit your "Accomplishments" page to update the Progress bar template calls so that they match the new version of the template I just released. If I messed up anything, just let me know and I will assist you in making them look the way you want them to. But I'm pretty confident that your bars are exactly the same as they were, except for the default color that I changed because I didn't like it. --Funky Jah (talk) User Funky Jah icon.jpg 20:44, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

The color is fine. I appreciate you taking the time to do that. Thank you! Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 19:25, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Dragon picture[edit]

Oops, sorry about that! I'll get right on that, or I may replace it with something else. I just kind of stuck it there. hehe Thanks! Tender Wolf 21:49, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Edit: Tried that, it doesn't seem to look any different, and my nav bar seems to be acting up too; I use the same code but I need to add one more box to it, but it either doesn't show up or comes out looking very tiny and not the same size as the rest, even though it's the same code. Darn. Tender Wolf 21:53, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
Yay! I got the tabs header boxes to line up better, but I'd like them to not be as long as they are, and it still won't let me add any more. I could try to use your code instead, but then I'm not sure how to add pictures to the top of each box like I currently have. I feel like a noob. lol Tender Wolf 17:21, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
Sure, I give you permission. :) *does some quick math* I'll need about...4 more I think, as each of my GW2 characters are going to have their own page, and I'll be making one of each race. I'll replace Characters with one of them, so I'll need 4 more. Although, I could also replace User Talk with one as well, and probably the Sandbox too. :D Thanks! Tender Wolf 17:40, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
Eek! Something happened and the code is all messed up! :O Tender Wolf 18:10, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
There we go, it's fixed. :D Thanks so much!!! Tender Wolf 18:19, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Hope you dont mind[edit]

i took the layout for your page :3 --Neil2250 User Neil2250 sig icon5.jpg 17:30, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Is your guild the same Forever Knights who did Guild Wars - Rain Force: Hydromancer Heroes by any chance?--Neil2250 User Neil2250 sig icon5.jpg 22:51, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Among many others, yes. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 23:00, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
.......OOOOOOOOOOOOh......if your guild still activly doing them?--Neil2250 User Neil2250 sig icon5.jpg 23:27, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
We've beep pretty busy lately with the proximity of Halloween and Wintersday, but we do still have projects going. More of our videos are posted [1] and [2]. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 04:52, 9 January 2010 (UTC)


for adding the user image tags ;) --Ellisia talk 22:12, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

You're welcome! I went on a bit of a user-image-tagging binge the other day. I was bored, haha. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 22:30, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

So am i your ...[edit]

Brother in law now? O_o(Looking at recent changes)--Neil2250 , The Zoologist User Neil2250 sig icon5.jpg 23:36, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Ah, haha. The Family tree has to do with RP my guild does, and how characters will be connected into GW2. If you wanna be my brother in law, sure? You'll just have to work it out with Fox, haha. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 00:09, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

User Mat Cauthorn parchment.jpeg Aparently i already am(Its Nathaniel.if your still wondering)--Neil2250 , The Zoologist User Neil2250 sig icon5.jpg 09:14, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Correction,im your FATHER in law.(its even worse for you >:D )--Neil2250 , The Zoologist User Neil2250 sig icon5.jpg 09:21, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Wow, totally missed that. Yeah, I guess you are, haha. Well, Fox chose the name, so I guess it's her fault :D. Uh, I guess I call you "Dad" now? Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 16:01, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
AGHHHHHHHHH I DONT WANNA BE A FATHER,AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Sounds cool.--Neil2250 , The Zoologist User Neil2250 sig icon5.jpg 21:15, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Very nice user page[edit]

I love staring at naked men with pumpkin head? :P Also, on a side note, I'll be playing Asuran, so I'll let you know how dumb they really are. =] - Infinite - talk 19:40, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Well, I only think they LOOK dumb. The pudgy cuddly cutesy way they look doesn't seem to match their personalities, and I think they looked better in GW1. And thanks for the compliment!Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 17:51, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
They obv ate ALOT of food in 250 to make them so fat :P. And yea i agree, they did look better in GW. --User:Nautaut (t) 21:02, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
I can only hope there's some kick-ass armor sets available to make up for their cartoony looks. ^^" - Infinite - talk 23:46, 17 January 2010 (UTC)


I've been planning on getting into environmental engineering as well, very cool :D I've always wanted to base designs on things found in nature.. what kind of things do enviro engineers usually do? ПALANA 00:05, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Well, the field is very broad, as it is a subset of civil engineering. Environmental Engineering covers things such as stormwater management and design, hazardous waste remediation, wetlands protection, waste-water treatment systems, air quality control, things of that nature. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 02:32, 19 January 2010 (UTC)


On your new Obby craft. ;) - Infinite - talk 23:59, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 11:56, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Your welcome[edit]

To make sure your welcome displays the correct date, you can use {{subst:User:Mat Cauthorn/Welcome}} which automatically copies everything from the template page onto the page it's posted on. Nice welcome template, btw :) --Santax (talk · contribs) 16:12, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Alright, but why did you change it so it only displays your name? I had it so whoever posted it would have their name displayed, I think. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 16:38, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't realise that I did. At the time, it only displayed your signature because ~~~~ automatically put your signature with the date and time you made the edit in there. I'll have a play with it and see if I can do anything about that now. --Santax (talk · contribs) 16:52, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Okay, it now seems to work :) --Santax (talk · contribs) 16:57, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Awesome, thanks! Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 17:22, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
I ended up just adding the parameter user=, and whoever posts can put ~~~~ in as a user parameter. A little more work, not not much, really. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 17:28, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks :D[edit]

Awesome, im a buddy :P. Ty again for fixing my page, i would have never got my head around it. --User:Nautaut (t) 19:17, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Family tree[edit]

Hey, very good job on your family tree! I've got one going for my main character as well; perhaps I should make it more orderly like yours...rofl How did you do that? I can't ever get the lines to match up correctly. Good job! Tender Wolf 20:35, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! I took a look at your page. Maybe make the images smaller so each set of four is in one row? If you want, I can remove my names and send you a blank copy of my parchment page. Just tell me how you want the lines set up, and I'll do it for you. Hell, you can give me the names, and I'll take care of it all for you :) Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 22:19, 15 February 2010 (UTC)


What'cha doin' in GW these days? Haven't seen you around since CNY, during which you missed many whispers of me, along all the hours I was hosting on District 4 EE. xD - 17:15, 22 February 2010 (UTC) EDIT: That was me, I didn't notice it logged me out just then~ - Infinite - talk 17:16, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

CNY I was mostly afking in EE10 with my guild. I was storing all the CNY chef items on an alt, so I was mostly on that. What's your IGN, I'll friend ya. Right now I'm on vacation, so I'll be off GW until probably Friday. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 20:38, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
IGN is Infinite Winds, by the way~ - Infinite - talk 06:21, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Category names[edit]

should be plural (e.g. "Category:Signature images"). Although I'm not really sure if that cat is needed - using {{user image}} should be fine and will categorise them. -- pling User Pling sig.png 16:22, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Ok. User image wording was that is is for user pages. Sig files are used in talk pages as well, that's whty I didn't do that. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 16:27, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Ehh, signature images have been tagged as user images for years, so there's established practice even if the tag wording doesn't clarify it. I think having them as user images would be easier for new users (less tag/category names to remember, plus I think the user image tag will be integrated into the upload form one day like it is on GWW). -- pling User Pling sig.png 16:29, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Alright. I wasn't active on GWW, so I didn't know that. Time for another user image marathon, I guess. Hooray for being bored at work! Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 16:52, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

I thought I remembered this name![edit]

I believe I saw you pwn my teams a lot in DA during the birthday celebration... -- Konig/talk 02:56, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Quickie question :3[edit]

Hey Mat! I was just sorta tidying up my page, and I don't quite know how to resize the "Main page" and "talk page" tabs to make them fit under the "Amannelle" sign... do you know how to do that for me? ^^ I'd greatly appreciate it. --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 02:38, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Better/ Or do you want them flush with your name? Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 03:10, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
"Flush with your name"? What is that? o.o --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 03:15, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Means the sides of the images line up with each other. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 03:18, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Ooooo yes please :O --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 03:19, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
There. Perfect ;) Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 03:24, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Zomg it's so... perfect. :3 Thank you SO much! How can I ever repay you? ^^ --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 03:26, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
"How can I ever repay you?" You know I was honestly asking, right? :) --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 00:11, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, haha. You drew me that awesome picture :) If you really want to repay me, find me a Firebrand or Law and Order weapon, haha. But really, you don't owe me anything. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 01:32, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
"find me a Firebrand or Law and Order weapon" If I could I would. ^^; but alas my luck is too terrible for that. Sorry :( --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 01:42, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

Since you've helped out with my background template a while back before...[edit]

I was wondering if you can help me figure something out. I'm trying to do two things and the template's done in a way I'm not familiar with (that's what I get for taking it from someone else...). Firstly, I'm trying to get it so that when there are sections done via the ==<insert title here>== that it keeps the edit tag (as it is, there is never an edit tag, which is a tad bit annoying). But the more important thing which I want to do is to add a few sections - specifically, add in a box to the side so that it is similar to how Neil's page is done. Basically, I'm trying to take the style of the template I use, and make it similar to this, with a different navbar and no image to the left. Think you can help? (btw, if it requires recoding the template, go ahead and do that). -- Konig/talk 03:01, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Do you have "Enable section editing via [edit] links" ticked in your preferences? --User Phnzdvn sig.pnghnzdvn 03:35, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Of course I do, I'm not an idiot. I always have that ticked. Go to my user page, scroll down; "GW2 Profession Predictions" is a level 2 header (has 2 equal signs on each side), do you see an edit tag? -- Konig/talk 03:40, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I wasn't implying that you were an idiot... my apologies if my comment came off that way. I have seen where others mistakenly un-ticked that preference option before without realizing it, so I was just making sure. Hmm, I recall seeing something like this before on another wiki but I can't quite remember how it was resolved... --User Phnzdvn sig.pnghnzdvn 03:49, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
I think I have to rework the whole coding but I am a coding nub, so I may be wrong and if I am right then I haven't a clue how (well, I know how, but I don't know what to replace the code with). -- Konig/talk 03:52, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Ok you may have already figured this out, but I figured I would mention it anyway... The problem seems to be rooting from the {{{body}}} parameter that you have set on the template. I tested it out in my sandbox and did not get the [edit] link either. I think that it is a bug with template transclusion, but there might be a work around... I would have to play with it a bit more though. --User Phnzdvn sig.pnghnzdvn 04:06, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Hmm. I 'll take a look at it, but I think Phnzdvn may be right. Since it is working withing the template, it may not register that it needs to put in an Edit tag. It may need a more complex coding to accomplish that. 14:16, 20 June 2010 (UTC) Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 14:16, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Ok, here we go. [3]. Basically, what you're asking isn't supported. "Note that a parameter value appearing in a template, for example "{{{1}}}", is, if we want to preserve the parameter, not edited by editing the template but by editing the template call, even though the rendered page and its edit links do not automatically show that. Some explanatory text and/or an extra edit link can be useful. In this case, to edit "{{{1}}}" we have to edit the template tag on the page calling the template. If we use section editing the relevant section edit link is that at the header appearing before the header in the template itself." Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 14:35, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Confusing wording, but from what I get it is that it just isn't possible to add in sections to templates? -- Konig/talk 22:06, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
That's what I get out of it, yes. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 01:01, 21 June 2010 (UTC)


Hey, I made a table with all of our respective nationalities and timezones...and after searching through your various accounts on the different wikis, I couldn't find your timezone or your nationality. Would you please put that information up on the aforementioned table, so that it is complete before I post it on the page. Thanks :) Aquadrizzt Main Page Designer 02:16, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Done! Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 11:59, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Every time I read a new fantasy series[edit]

I understand more names that people choose. I have just started reading The Great Hunt, and going by the standard of the first book and what I've read of it so far, it's going to be a very good read. This author is quickly becoming one of my all time favourites. Hareemuh 21:55, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

He is my favorite author, without a doubt! Unfortunately, he died before he was able to finish the series. However, he left enough notes that his wife and an author she selected were able to finish it. The second-to-last book should be coming out in November. Enjoy!

Orphaned image[edit]

Hey Mat Cauthorn, I'm going through images (cleaning, updating licensing and fixing naming issues) and noticed one of your old images was orphaned: [[:File:User Mat Cauthorn awesome template.PNG]]. I've marked it for deletion in a few days; if you plan on using it, please just take the deletion tag off of it and mark it with {{not orphaned}} for now. Thanks! — Rari User Rari sig.png 14:23, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

Hey! That is back from when I was making a user box, but I ended up replacing it. Go ahead and delete it! Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 15:42, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
