The old generation[edit]

All the great cinematographers (james Cameron, Wes Craven, Georges Lucas, Tobe Hoper, The Raimi Brothers, John Gulager, Spielberg, to name a few) are getting old. What will we be left with after their departure ? Some modern directors who put explosions before the scenario ? The magic is fading away... - Yseron 15:43, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Beautiful DNAs[edit]

There is the world of men, the world of animals, and then there is the world. And Kepler confirmed recently that of all the planets that can support life "nearby" (~10) we got the Jackpot. Yseron - 20:41, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

The power of Unity[edit]

It took me about an hour to reproduce gw2 conditions system, and an additional hour to be able to visualize it thanks to the power of Unity. You can download the small unity project exemple here.

Holy grace[edit]

What's this? Is this something for the wiki? --Cloned (talk) 13:48, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
Is it a real question or are you trying to tell me something else ? If this is a question, the answer is no, this is a post on my user page for my user page. If you were trying to tell me something else, i suggest trying to use the words that speak your mind otherwise i wont understand. Yseron - 07:26, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

A woman in the jungle[edit]

At a time where an absolutely wrong conception of the Mayan culture and writing system is universally aproved by the scientific community,

a woman,

armed with an indomitable logic, will brake the code and ridiculise the acclaimed expert males.

This is her story.

Yseron - 03:38, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

Is there any way to stop your page from appearing in the "recent-change" section? I want to read about the gw2 wiki and I have no clue what this is? How is this relevant? --Cloned (talk) 08:33, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Google Lunar XPrize, low cost space missions launchs at the end of 2017[edit]

Really no way to make your personal blog disappear from recent edits? Do you need help in setting up a free blog for this stuff? --Cloned (talk) 13:54, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
I dont know. Ask a wiki guru to make it disappear from the recent edits ? For the personal blog i dont need help, but i will keep in mind what a generous person you are and will request your help each time i need some, from now on. I just feel at home on my user page. But if the plan is to make gw2 wiki a club made by contributors, for contributors, tell me, and i will help you spread the word to other non contributors as well. Yseron - 14:07, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
I don't believe that gw2 wiki is "a club made by contributors, for contributors", but I think what they're getting at is that most topics that you've discussed are simply not relevant in any way to GW2. Talk pages are meant for discussion, not blogging. Sythe 16:22, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
Oh ! Someone that i actually understand ! Alright. Noted. I dont promise anything thought, unless it one day get to the point where the RC are bloated with my edits (in which case it would be obvious trolling from my end). Yseron - 17:24, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
Don't worry about it, you don't post nearly enough to be distracting or interfere with anything. You also don't edit the wiki so your talk page isn't being used.--Relyk ~ talk < 17:44, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

The key to understanding the world in its most intimate corners[edit]

Recently i observed a phenomenon i could not explain, involving the wiki staf and the community management, as you can see in the screenshot below:

User Serge Yseron educating oneself.jpg

With that in mind i decided to educate myself (an habit i took after observing the human nature). Unfortunately, more often than not, i find what i was looking for.

Serge Yseron (talk) 17:29, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

Moral Majority[edit]

While visiting my old man i did get a glimpse at the forums between 2 discussions. A guy is admitting that he cant find a job but since he has 9 people raiding with him he is right about a game. And here goes the bear "Yeah... so what ? Not so long ago the public was paying to see somenone be burned alive for saying the earth was round. And as we are talking we are still the natural disaster number one on this planet. Bring me a cofee." So the old man' brain is still working... Sometimes i suspect he is going to outlive me just to piss the crap out of my existence. Yseron - 16:25, 9 April 2017 (UTC)


You learn something every day... You know the only guy who succeeded to make Rome fall and defeated the hunts after Rome made the Celts fall ? He got stoped stone cold by the Francs thanks to the Francesca. Alexandre Benoit Berrurier, à toi l'antenne ! Yseron - 16:50, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

I can no longer post in the community creations forum...[edit]

...but i can still contribute to the community. I started to model in 3d the dagger concept of Matt.

NCC 1701 GW2 style[edit]

I had originally intended to post this on the community creations forum but i got banned permanently after i hinted a user who felt sad about home instances that he just have to use the anet apis to make his own home instance viewer. Either that or the fact that i posted a screenshot of current anet job openings when i explained they were short handed. Sometimes i suspect that the mods on the forum are either in panic mode (panic from what, go figure) or got a mental illness. Anyway: this evening i learned 1) to make my own metallic texures (and it seems the trick with the edges can also be applied to rocks texures), 2) how to use the blender feature "UWunwrap/Follow Active Quads" to easily make the kind of visuals anet use for their air balloon on the airships.

RMS Millenium Falcon[edit]

Captain: history confirmed female pirate Mary Read

The original shapes of the windshield do not cope well with a wooden middle age version so i simplified the frames

One step closer[edit]

Almost finish the main hull of the falcon. Remaining: finish cockpit, add pin-up (well, a playboy since the captain is female) and circuitery.

Anet commander on video[edit]

I let you build your own conclusions on why complains are flourishing on the forums with the attitude of Anet. Yseron - 17:39, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Legendary armors - A story as old as humanity itself[edit]

I saw it every day for the past 17 years in the industry. As people come and go in a company they are replaced by young wolves with great ambitions. So the first thing a young wolf is going to do is to try to impress. It always end with the requested tasks not being done because of unrelated time sinking irational unfinished sparkly features. And when it comes to art instead of code, what you get on top of that is armors that look like hedgehogs and a mandatory trencoat for the sake of making an fx nobody ever asked in the first place more visible. Does this remind you something ? Yes, that 20 something guy that kill himself doing stunts because he has been feed all his youth by movies that promote the glory of taking un-necessary risks. This is also why you provide guidance to your childs and keep hoping for the best. But in the industry there is a twist: you try to recruit people that have the same mindset than your customers. What then when your target is an immature audience ?

At our age we are conerned by things like that

whereas young wolves are still at that stage,

How to make it work as a director or producer ....? Tough question. Yseron - 21:01, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Oh you beautyfull little jewel[edit]

Form and substance, style and content, and finaly... choice[edit]

The most violent movies are not always the ones with blood and gore. The most horrible things can be whispered to you by an angel voice. But the real lesson here is that it is best to prevent reaching situations where you have to make impossible choices, for there are some who dont even have this privilege. Case in point, as you are about to discover... in the twilight zone. Enter if you dare. Your servitor 07:55, 8 May 2017 (UTC)


Apophis will graze earth in 2029 and will be visible without instrument from the ground (3 times the size of the one that killed the dinosaurs, or the size of a district if you prefer). Yseron - 05:36, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

(Parental Discretion Advised) In the category: sweet monsters of the 90s[edit]

Poulpy Le Poulpe ! (in english: Pu-Pus The Octopus - althought i'm not sure it conveys the same idea in this langage)

Paying the price of an ignorant benevolence[edit]

An institution in my country decided that my ISP was to use the fiber network of its competitor to provide me an internet connection. You can imagine how failed it is destined to be. I see you laugh.... and you're dam right, i'm laughing with you.
My ISP: good equipement, one man did suffice to make the installation years ago
SFR: bad equipement, a team of two men havent been able to install a new fiber connection for my neighbors without *breaking my connection*, twice in a row
I dont even blame SFR, they do what they can with the equipement they are told to use. The man who work for SFR need a job as mush as anyone else.
In the casing where the accident took place, there is still room for 5 more ISPs.... 5, FIVE, F-I-V-E
No i dont blame SFR for interfering with the best provider i ever known for 15 years.
But i do blame institutions that blindly and arbitrarily decide how the user will pay for its errors.

Anet....stop ...stop ...For the love of god, chain your village idiot in the basement[edit]

You are slowly hitting the bottom. Yseron - 00:19, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

After two consecutive patches, Epidemic is still not working correctly. On top of that it is inherently flawed because if the source of the epidemic dies by the time the projectiles reach the surounding targets, no condition at all is transfered. It's like in GW1 when you were firing an arrow at a long distance without poison then activating poison while the arrow was already flying making it a poisoned arrow mid-fly. Or when you were firing an arrow at a great distance and you would be blinded mid-fly, then the arrow would miss. In gw2 it's more subtle, you are blinded and all the marks pulses will miss even if you were blinded after creating them. I begin to think they worship village idiots because these bugs are there since day one. Yseron - 01:16, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
Addendum: they said the change to epidemic was to remove some stress from the servers. It ALSO didnt work. It have been years since we learned that massive interactions need blobs tech and factorised computations on a dedicated core. Anet is still at the stage where they think that wasting time optimizing everywhere but where it's needed is a sign of being a good programmer as opposed to just a coder. Always beware of people who can spend a 3 hours long meeting discussing about brakets instead of what's enclosed in it. Yseron - 01:59, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Feast your eyes at your own risk[edit]

This is serious tech made by serious people, with a serious game engine... Yseron - 06:07, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

We were noobs with pointy sticks to be smashed like flies...[edit]

...but we apparently sent Maguuma directly in T4. That said, we are now again matched up in T1 against a server that is linked while we haven't been linked for mmonths. It is more easy to try to understand the unverse than to try to follow the reasoning behind anet misbehaviours. Yseron - 08:02, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

Rendez vous at Share Point[edit]

A running map named Matilda. A bunch of gentlemen after the Senorita. Yseron - 08:38, 30 May 2017 (UTC)


They found the way to revive our favorite stars of the 70s with holographic shows. Unfortunately, the claudettes are nowhere near as beautiful as the orginal ones.
But.... this has never been done anywhere in the world at this scale. In fact it never has been done.
After Dalida, Marylin Monroe is next in line. But shhh, it's a secret !

The first and only cougar song ever produced[edit]

I thought that cougarism was a recent phenomenon but apparently every adult getting pas 50 will have at some point some adventures... Lord have mercy when i reach this age, there seems to be no happy tales from what i've seen so far !

She/he just had turned 18, She/he was beautiful like a child, strong as an adult.
It was the summer, obviously, and i counted my autumns as i saw her/him.
I did put my hairs in order, A drop of shade under my eyes, It made him laugh.
When she/he got closer, I would have given anything, to seduce her/him

She/he just had turned 18, It was the best proof of his/her victory.
She/she didnt talk about love, She/he thought that love words are derisory.
She/he told me "i want you", She/he had seen it in a movie "Le blé en herbe".
snuggled into an improvised bed, i discovered, amazed, a superb sky.

She/he just had turned 18, it almost made her/him look insolent of certitude
And while she/he was getting dressed already vanquished, i was once again thrown into my solitude
I wish i had kept him from leaving and yet i did let her/him go
Without any gesture she/he told me "that wasnt that bad" with the infernal candor of her/his youth

I did put my hairs in order, a drop of shade under my eyes, by habit
I had forgotten, simply, that i was three times 18 years old...

What changed over time ?[edit]

What changed ? Aldrin goes on the moon and take 5 photos. Jennifer goes to the toilets and take 37 photos.
We were not tweeting.
We were thinking.

WvW update[edit]

All wvw maps got a 50 men queue. We are some happy dirty faces :) Yseron - 17:06, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

OPERATION SEDUCTION - Our commanders instructed us to be gentle with the pve players for "among them, there is a futur great wvw player". So they did kind of show us an exemple to follow and after an hour of passive listening we had either a headache or we were bored to death. Lord have mercy of our poor souls.

Concerning your use of the wiki[edit]

There is currently a discussion of your use of this website on the admin noticeboard. Please consider contributing to it. G R E E N E R 16:29, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

It's your call. I am already banned ad vitae aeternam from the gw2 community creation forum. People who work for free are an invaluable asset for anet, and i thank you on their behalf for all the work the contributors did all those years. I even heard some continue to update the gw1 wiki. Yseron - 13:11, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
Work is still proceeding on the GW1W, though at an obviously slower pace than in its golden years.
You've got skills behind a computer and have a perspective I don't share; both are great things which can help out the community here on this wiki. I see that you spend your time in WvW, a game type which I rarely see beyond doing the odd daily. Bring that knowledge here, as our WvW section may fall as far out-of-date as the sPvP section! You're comfortable with images and modelling, and if you can make heads or tails of this conversation then you have me beat.
The wiki was given to us not as a personal blogging space, but as a community asset. You've got the ability to contribute, so I'm simply asking you to use it. G R E E N E R 21:08, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
For the conversation you are refering to, there is no black magic involved. It simply evolve around requesting all the existing recipes through the API and checking wich ones would return a 404 error or similar when interrogating the wiki, and wich ones have a duplicate wiki link, althought depending on how informations are stored server side, requesting the recipes entries might even be sufficient. Now in my country, asking is not the same as to give an order. If it is an order: then remove my account. That said, in everything bad there is something good, this was the occasion to know what a player think or like. An asseptic collection of profiles restricting themselves to keeping track of their progress on their user page would be as meaningfull as taking screenshots of a game and posting them in a community creation forum. If i want to be logic, and knowing what purpose community departments really serve in the video game industry, i have to stop myself anyway. I really have no objection. If you have some doubts, ask Gaile, she will testify that i stand by my words and assume what i say or do. And when i will be gone, please teach her a thing or two on what it takes to make a video game. Regina on the other hand, is truely interesting, you will learn that she began to learn programming some years ago, wich immediately make her more credible in terms of understanding the infos she is asked to relay to the public, althought it will not change the way she is asked to relay it, obviously. T1 Wvw players are a special breed. They have to be pragmatic, direct, and efficient. But if you can look past these trucker's farts, you will discover that they have an extensive knowledge of all the bugs you havent yet listed in your pages (and would strangle with passion the devs 24/7/365). I encourage you to interview the most proficient commanders and their followers (on Blackgate for exemple), they knew ( know? :=) ) of at least two ways to make a server crash on demand. Bye. Yseron - 23:11, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

GW2 screenshots[edit]

Hi Serge, just a heads up that you can't mark images containing screenshots as public domain. ANet owns any ingame images, even modified ones, so use {{ArenaNet image|screenshot}} instead. :) --Idris (talk) 12:48, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
