Skill icons[edit]

Once I find out the "template" for all the skill icon uploads, I'll put them on all those skill icons you uploaded for ya. :P -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 04:22, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

I was just about to post that as you did. Anyways I have another idea as it is. One of the first things I used when I started the wiki, but not this one, the wikia one. Previously Unsigned 04:27, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
Hah, that certainly works, at least until someone changes the file type. :P (I wouldn't know how.) -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 04:34, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
I don't really know much about templates anyways. Trying to identify some skill icons from the huge picture posted too. Previously Unsigned 04:36, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
Good stuff! For some reason I'm trying to improve the skill articles, but I'm trying to overlook individual skill page consistency until we have all of the skills. -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 04:39, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
Identifying skills is IMPOSSIBLE. But I think I found Dragon's Breath. But it looks like a ranger skill so probably not. I don't know what to improve in the skill articles unless you have videos or pictures to go off of. That's how I'm learning most of it. This link also has a ton of stuff but no pictures to back it up: [1] Previously Unsigned 04:51, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
It was probably Fire Breath. Yeah, it's tough, which is why I'm not doing it. :P (Also, I can't seem to upload any pictures.) -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 05:16, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Ehehe i figured out i ve been so lazy to link you to that feast of corruption screen without rotating/distorting by myself... i am however converting some HD videos trying to get decent icon caps CaiusTheBig User talk:Caiusthebig 19:26, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

That's good too. It's a shame that most people's videos are not like PlayMassiveTVs or zoomed in directly into game elements, then we'd have most by now. The wait time was 2 hours I heard, that is enough time to sort their shit out. Plus, all these references to skills we don't have icons for probably means that one video features them and the icon too. Previously Unsigned 19:30, 7 September 2010 (UTC)


All images that are uploaded need a tag. I think for now we are using {{ArenaNet image|screenshot}} for skill icons. This helps us to categorize images and keep up with where they came from, what they are used for, etc. If you could tag the icons you are uploading, it would be quite helpful. --User Phnzdvn sig.pnghnzdvn 02:10, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

I think this is how icons are categorised. pling User Pling sig.png 02:12, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
Ok, scratch that part about the template. Thank you, Pling, for filling me in. --User Phnzdvn sig.pnghnzdvn 02:16, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I always forget about this. Will try to remember to do it now. What other sites do I tag my images at when uploading? None. That's why I forget. Previously Unsigned 02:18, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Re: Icons[edit]

Hello just a friendly reminder all ICONS must be .png and follow a specific format "Game icon images (skill icons, item icons, trait icons, map icons, etc.) should:

Great minds thinks alike ^^[edit]

I was wondering where did that speedy deletion tag came from until I browsed recent changes ^^. I'm not quite sure which time do updates follow, this one was 8 hours ago, which luckily makes it 17th in both PT, CET and UTC, but still.—

Yeah, I think I just had a typo there. It's weird how both were saved at the exact time. Previously Unsigned 17:18, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

force TOC on left[edit]

Either use the "magic word" command __TOC__ to force it to appear at a certain point, or just add a third header and it will appear automatically above the first header. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 19:11, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Ok then. thanks! Previously Unsigned (talk) 19:11, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
