That heart in your signature smiled at me, so I thought it would be appropriate to leave a friendly message. Also, I like yanderes. Gnarf 09:08, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

I think the heart fits the whole yandere thing pretty good... By the way I am more the obsessive type, so have no fear. ^^ - Yandere Talk to me... 09:51, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
I wonder... what happens if two obsessive individuals band together? Is that like dividing by zero? Gnarf 10:07, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

German[edit]

Und ich dachte schon, ich bin hier der einzige Deutsche im englischen Wiki. / And I thought I'm the only german on the english wiki. *brofist* Gnarf 09:46, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Ja, geht mir ähnlich. Das ist wohl so üblich, wenn man sich viel im Internet aufhält. / Me too. I guess that's usual if you stay too much on the internet.

Hardest part[edit]

Of fixing my own mistakes is redoing 168 odd pages. :) - EndeavorTalk 20:52, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

What kind of error did you do? O_o - Yandere Talk to me... 21:10, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
The dash, it had to be a — - EndeavorTalk 21:16, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Oh, yeah right... That is really unfortunate. - Yandere Talk to me... 21:20, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, but at least I'm faster than a bot...for the time being. Say, when the game is released mind helping me out capturing the cinematic? It was a project on the original wiki and it'll be great to start it up here. Here's the link and here's an example page though, it'll look different here. - EndeavorTalk 21:28, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
I have never done something like that. And I not really sure if that would be any kind of fun. I usually do not like cinematics except for the Vistas these look great. - Yandere Talk to me... 21:53, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

racial tool belt skills[edit]

If you have screenshots or video of those, I can get the skill icons from the dat file (unless you can do that yourself). —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 18:52, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

I unfortunately have any screenshots or videos and I never fiddled with the dat file before. - Yandere Talk to me... 18:56, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Upgrade slot[edit]

The uslot parameter doesn't seem to work correctly, namely here. It just says unused upgrade slot. - anja talk 17:39, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

It worked but the linked Sgil didn't exist so the template didn't recognised it. Created the page. Now it does - Yandere Talk to me... 18:52, 9 August 2012 (UTC)
Oh ok :D Great ^^ - anja talk 19:09, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

Sooo....[edit]

I don't know how much you have on your plate right now, but if you get time, pretty much all of these items need to be converted to the item stat template instead of listing them separately. If you have plenty of stuff to do that's cool, I just thought that you went through and cleaned up my earlier stuff, you'd probably be really good at it by now, while I'm working on putting up the other 36 sets of Cultural armors. Wombatt 05:18, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

This was basiclly nexted on my agenda. Armors are a much larger category, then Accessories and Weapons so I didn't now how to start, but the racial armors are a good starting point I think. - Yandere Talk to me... 10:13, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Big favor...[edit]

Can you please look through my contribs and help me mark the old pages I moved for deletion? That'll help me out a lot. - EndeavorTalk 18:22, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

I hope I've got all pages... - Yandere Talk to me... 18:34, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
Thank you so very much. It was just a lot of files - EndeavorTalk 18:38, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
No problem. - Yandere Talk to me... 18:43, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Updating templates etc[edit]

When you're updating templates like value, etc, don't waste your time on anything labeled Black Citadel xxx 1, all those pages are outdated and will be deleted soon. Wombatt 15:26, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

You are probably right. ^^ - Yandere Talk to me... 15:41, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

Armor infobox[edit]

You reverted my changes to armor infobox, so I wanted to msg you before editing it again. Wombatt asked we get rid of the "fall back" text for no description, because a lot of armor doesn't have descriptions and it just looks ugly. Is there a reason we need it?

I also added a clear beneath the infobox so that it doesn't need to be added manually beneath the template on every article page. — Rari User Rari sig.png 11:25, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Ah, ok I tought every armor in the game would have an ingame description. Sorry for that. In this case we sould get rid of the fall back text. Agreed. - Yandere Talk to me... 11:28, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
May I ask why we need a clear? I haven't seen any need at all and it just creates a lot of whitespace. - anja talk 16:21, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
The debate currently moved to this Talk page: User_talk:Rari#Why_the_clear_in_the_armor_infobox.3F - Yandere Talk to me... 16:28, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Gilded Jewel Pages[edit]

Thank-you for the tip to move the old Exquisite Jewel Pages to the new Gilded Jewel pages, but at the risk of looking reaaaally stupid, where the @#$%# is the move button? Thanks, Karen Lionheart 14:58, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

No problem. You seem pretty new to wiki editing, so it is quite normal to ask such things. - Yandere Talk to me... 15:20, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
User Yandere Move.png
The move function is only available to "autoconfirmed" users, and there is a certain threshold (either a time period since registering or a number of edits) you have to meed before becoming autoconfirmed. I don't know what those thresholds might be, though, since no one but Anet's sysadmins have access to the wiki config file. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 17:44, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
Ah that might explain this.
Oh boy the wiki is slow today... O_o - Yandere Talk to me... 18:14, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Storyline Templates[edit]

Hi there, I saw you updated the storyline templates for the different orders. I was just wondering if you knew whether the Grawl, Hylek, etc.. sections were actually different for each Order or if the Order's quests merely lead into a distinct Grawl storyline common for all players. The page on Racial sympathy indicates that "Player races do not influence the storyline aside from choices available (e.g., a human choosing skritt and a charr choosing skritt will follow the same path)." Vedrfolnir 09:14, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

That is indeed a good question. I don't know actually. My story obviouslly started and ended at the Vigil Keep, but the Warmaster which accomanied me was not really involved in the whole plot. During the whole stoyline I felt like a Vigil representative so I just assumed it was a Vigil story. So you could be right. I played the Hylek story and was a Sylvari perhaps you know someone how joined a diffrent order, so we can analyse the plot, and see if it was any diffrent. - Yandere Talk to me... 09:23, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
I'm not quite that far along with my character yet. I think it would make sense if they were distinct, if only to reduce 15 story branches (Vigil-Grawl, Whispers-Grawl, Priory-Grawl, Vigil-Hylek, etc ...) combinations down to just 5. It would've been simpler for the developers to confine choices to the immediate storyline section, as they've done distinguishing the Order from the Race. - Vedrfolnir 09:42, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
Not sure about that. You can write the plot pretty easy so that you just swap out some character models, words and dialog lines. In fact I would say it is easier to just have 5 difrent story braches with slight modifications for each order. - Yandere Talk to me... 12:30, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

map icon templates on topic pages[edit]

I removed your addition of the map icon template to the vista/waypoint/etc. articles for two reasons: 1) The only benefit of the template (besides being simpler) is that it adds a link to the page that the icon identifies, which in this case, is a self-link to the page that you put it on; 2) Having a simple file link on these pages gives us an easy way to access the actual file, since we're going to be using the template everywhere else. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 01:29, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Sounds logical. - Yandere Talk to me... 22:35, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

App localization[edit]

Hey Yandere, I hope this news doesn't make you cut my head off and take it on your nice boat with you, but Poke has started doing the German localization for the app since he was already collaborating with me and he's a native German as well. If you'd like to ask him about sharing the effort, the more the merrier- you can view the repository at https://github.com/Felixomni/gw2wiki-android - and additionally I'd love to have you help test the app when it's ready for a beta release. Felix Omni Signature.png 22:24, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Not haveing all the work for myself?! No seriously there is nothing wrong with that. Actually two people usually make a better job on localisation. One quick question, before I go through all your code, which looks pretty nice by the way (Did I mention that I can programm java?). Where is you localisation file, where you switch between the languages? I couldn't find it on the fist looktrough. - Yandere Talk to me... 07:12, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Each language that will be supported has its own values directory in the res directory (I haven't added Spanish or French yet). The default values is English, and the one Poke added is values-de; the suffix is how Android knows which resources to load based on the system locale. Felix Omni Signature.png 14:44, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Actually I would only translate on thing diffrently, which doesn't mean it is wrong german, but I think you would usually read something like this:
<string name="external_link_dontshow">Diese Warnung nicht erneut anzeigen.</string>
And I am not sure what du you mean with "Wiki language". Are this the language settings or options of the app, or do you refer to the mediawiki syntax? I think this isn't every clear in either language. - Yandere Talk to me... 14:58, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
The app allows the user to choose which of the four official wikis they want to view- English (currently doesn't work though), German, French, or Spanish. This choice is independent from the app's UI language, which Android automatically sets based on the device's locale. Those specific strings are used in the Settings screen to tell the user which language their current wiki preference is set to. Felix Omni Signature.png 18:22, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Ok, it is basiclly which onof the 4 wikis you are browsing. - Yandere Talk to me... 18:40, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Hearts and Jumping Puzzle[edit]

Why are you removing these sections from the area pages? --MushaUser Musha Sigc.png 19:42, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

I delete those section because on Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Projects/Cartography there was a discussion about standardizing layout for explorable zones. The result is the location table which holds most information important for the zone including hearts and jumping puzzles, so it makes these subsections obsolete. These guidelines can be seen here Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Location formatting with Quetzal Bay and Caledon Forest as example implementations of this standard.
So it wasn't basiclly not my idea but I was also part of the discussion and could agree to this standard, and I try to incorporate this on the explorable zone pages, which is why I delete those subsections. Anyway this doesn't mean that these guidelines are set in stone. You can join the Project and bring your viewpoints in. Everything answered? - Yandere Talk to me... 23:06, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
It only makes those subsections obsolete when the correct formatting has been implemented. Until then, people actually looking for the jumping puzzle and heart info on those pages will be lost with the information missing. So, let's leave the current information alone until it is replaced by the correct formatting. --MushaUser Musha Sigc.png 23:35, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
And I see that it now has. Awesome. --MushaUser Musha Sigc.png 23:37, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
I totally agree with you I hope I just deleted these sections only on pages were the information was transcribed into the table. - Yandere Talk to me... 23:40, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Eternity Recipe[edit]

Where did you get your information on the Eternity recipe? I haven't seen anyone publish any information on that.Strill 22:21, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Some IP published the recipe on the Eternity page and I simply transcribed it to the main article that is all. So yeah, I found this information in this wiki. Why are you asking? - Yandere Talk to me... 23:06, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
I just checked the history for the Eternity page and it says Relyk published the recipe. I asked him and he told me he just copied it from the Legendary Weapon page. I checked the history for that page and you seem to have been the first to add that in. I've kept close track on all the legendary research and I haven't seen that info anywhere. To be clear, we know that Eternity is made with Twilight and Sunrise from a developer video but I haven't seen any info to suggest that it uses a Gift of Mastery/Fortune. Those details seem to have first appeared in one of your edits. I'm gonna remove it as speculation if you have no objections.Strill 07:22, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
I added a {{verify}} tag, I don't see the point in removing it as we know it exist, we know it has to be made in the forge because it's a legendary weapon and it takes 2 unique items, and all legendary weapons follow the same pattern.--Relyk 07:47, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
Eternity already breaks the pattern by being made of two legendary weapons. I don't think it's prudent to assume it adheres to the rest of the pattern.Strill 08:56, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
Actually I asked the same question, on the Eternity talk page. If only the to legendaries are necessary or you need to two gifts. Anyway I think a verify tag would solve all the issues with that thing. - Yandere Talk to me... 10:01, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
All Mystic forge recipes require you to fill all four slots in the forge, so no it's not made with just Sunrise and Twilight.Strill 01:52, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
It's not breaking the pattern of a legendary weapon, Heart of Mellaggan is a mystic weapon that doesn't use weapon components for creation. It breaks the pattern of creating legendary weapons from tier 6 crafting components, but not the possible pattern for any legendary weapon.--Relyk 02:04, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Also Eternity...[edit]

While we're on the subject, I notice you changed List of weapon sets a while ago so that it incorporated the table from Legendary weapon. Sadly, Eternity is treated as a special case there and doesn't appear in the list, so it doesn't appear on the other page at all. Would you say the best thing to do is to add it to the list on the LW page, foregoing the special box, or manually add it (complete with special box) to the "list of weapon sets"page? Personally, I favour the first option ;) — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 12:40, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Er, actually, re-reading all of the above, my comment only applies if the thing actually exists. Assumption is a dangerous thing :/ — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 12:46, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
I think I added the table, when there were still all weapons on the table. I actually have no preferences on is topic. so do as you please. - Yandere Talk to me... 15:13, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks Yandere (presumably ;)). Obviously I couldn't add it to the table as its constituents aren't the same as the rest, heh. — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 15:29, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
Obviously... I just wanted to point out, why Eternity went missing ^^ - Yandere Talk to me... 15:36, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Starting tutorial area[edit]

If its name is "starting tutorial area" in the game, then how can the compass say Hall of Memories when there'd be no other means to tell the area's name is starting tutorial area? There is obviously a big ass inconsistency issue here. Konig/talk

You see I wasn't really sure how to handle this... it is called starting tutorial area or starting island by the Master of Travel, the compass says Hall of Momentum, so i is technical a part of the Hall of Momentum. On the other hand they are really 2 seperate enties which connect to each other. So yeah, that is how it is. - Yandere Talk to me... 21:28, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
Okay, and how does Memories of the Past, the name given to the area when loading in during beta, fall into that Foefire map? Konig/talk 21:36, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
I have no clue why they changed that, but it is simply the name of on the map. The compass says Lagacy of Foefire and the map when you stand in the Hall of Memories says Memories of the Past - Yandere Talk to me... 23:59, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Weapon sets categorization[edit]

Saw your name on the Category:Weapon_sets talk page. I reorganized part of the categorization (especially the crafted weapon sets). Would you check if I missed something? Thank you! ~ Sanna 01:36, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

speargun and harpoon[edit]

I had previously removed those from the weapon infobox because we don't need to encourage their use. They only increase the confusion that Anet has already caused by not being consistent with their weapon names. The weapon type in the tooltip is either spear or harpoon gun and those are the only valid values we should allow. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 13:56, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Ah ok, I wanted to take the easy way out. :P
When you revert my change there are some articles that get sorted under weapon, because they use the harpoon and speargun input but perhaps it is better so change these articles than- Yandere Talk to me... 17:43, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Perhaps we could add a category like "Category:Needs weapon type" to the "unspecified" default option? (would help for cleanup) Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:56, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Nah, I did this same cleanup when I removed them the first time. Not a problem. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 18:36, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Turns out that nothing currently uses either speargun or harpoon as weapon type. So no cleanup necessary. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 18:40, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Well, there where a few, I just updated them ^^ - Yandere Talk to me... 18:53, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Bah, why were they capitalized?! I didn't bother making the DPL regex case-sensitive since I assumed everyone always used lower-case parameter values. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 18:56, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
People use capital letters to mess with you, like "Skill challenge" for object type instead of "skill challenge".--Relyk ~ talk > 19:03, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Shortbow was even more fun, it came in "Shortbow", "shortbow", "Short bow", "short bow" and of course "Short Bow". I usually do not capitilize parameter names, but sometimes I do out of habit. As a German you usually capitilize all nouns, you know, so it feel very natural. ^^ - Yandere Talk to me... 19:38, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

seige subpages[edit]

Linking to the tower page is the best approach, no one will be navigating to the PoI. And if it's going to be kept, remove the section headers (not to sound mean ^^).--Relyk ~ talk > 21:20, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

No problem, my main concern was to remove the tables from the area pages, where they seriously didn't belong. I just wanted to add some of the content to get things started. I am greatful for any input (and any help) - Yandere Talk to me... 22:17, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
I've become rather vehement about transcluding pages because it makes them hard to edit. Consensus was to treat the PoIs as the actual structure, so I can only get so mad about it. As players will definitely navigate to tower in search and that's what is linked in structure, we're not saving those precious clicks by sticking the tables on individual tower pages.--Relyk ~ talk > 22:48, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
Actually I like subpages. Keeps things central and if you have to edit something it is only one page. This is of course only interesting when you want to repeat information.
As I said, my first concern was it to get things started in this part of the wiki. I am done with the Green Borderlands now.
The main reason why I would want to keep the tables is because some other person put them there and it seems like something many people would expect on this page. So probably some people will add them anyway and if that happens I would like a subpage added and not a copy of the table because this becomes messy fast. - Yandere Talk to me... 04:38, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
People don't know what they want we the look for information. People actually want information about any tower, which is evident by the fact it's a subpage of Tower and not the location article. In that, I could rephrase your first sentence as: "Actually I like the Tower page. Keeps things central and if you have to edit something it is only one page." :P--Relyk ~ talk > 09:46, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
As I said I have nothing against the tower page. I like the tower page very much... It keeps things central :P.
My point was that I understand the idea to decentralize informations and if you do this subpages are the way to go.
Than again, I do not have a very strong opinion on this so if you want to remove the tables from the objective pages I wouldn't stop you. Well, I actually would help you. ^^ - Yandere Talk to me... 09:58, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Arguing about this with you is much better than anons that bitch that they can't find information though D: The point I'm trying to make is that people are using subpages as templates. In reality, that information isn't going change often and will only affect about 5 pages. It's simply good practice to keep information centralized, so you don't have to implement something like subpages to make sure people don't screw things up.--Relyk ~ talk > 10:07, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Well, we have 24 towers, 24 supply camps, and 12 keeps. So we have a bit more than 5 pages. The question is should a page which is about the specific structure should hold the generic upgrade information for every structure of this type? And I am seriously not sure about this. We have for example some vendor pages where a generic vendor subpage is listed because many vendors sell the same stuff. Or take the bulk ingrediance for example. Every master chef sells the same bulk ingreadiance, so should this stuff be repeated in the buk ingreadiance section of a location or not.
We have a lot of redundant information in this wiki which isn't bad, redundacy can be a very good thing. As I said I am really not sure about this. - Yandere Talk to me... 11:10, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
I wrote a tl;dr about how and why the inventory template is implemented. But then I noticed we already had the tower implemented in the template as {{inventory|Quartermaster tower}}. So I think someone copypasted then split up the table to stick on the area page and you just moved the table around. We can stick a upgrades table for the tower; then on individual tower pages, tell player to talk to the Quartermaster for upgrades. We just need a table for supply camps and keeps. All three tables will go on the quartermaster article.--Relyk ~ talk > 05:40, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
These subpages are literally used as templates, what was the point of making them subpages. And the descriptions for the upgrades are out of date as well as the tower subpage being messed up.--Relyk ~ talk > 06:16, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
Your replacement template is much uglier than the previous version of Keep/upgrades relyk. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 10:12, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
I copypasted it.--Relyk ~ talk > 11:50, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

wvw[edit]

[1], why that instead of simply putting wvw/World vs World in the location parameter. And people will wonder why the location parameter isn't working.--Relyk ~ talk > 09:34, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Because of autocategories, and because I didn't thought this through... Now only the default is changed to World versus World the location parameter should work as intened. - Yandere Talk to me... 09:39, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
I actually meant using a switch statement for the zone parameter, but it doesn't list zone on npc infobox. We would have to add a zone parameter. The other option is to make a switch statement for location parameter and categorize all locations in WvW into the category.
Here's something to look forward to, where we don't need to set the zone parameter, primarily because the area infobox does that already. There will be a simple solution where we set Property:Located in SMW property for areas, so [[Is located in::{{{location}}}]] returns "World versus world", which we can use to then categorize it.--Relyk ~ talk > 09:59, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
I am totally new to this whole SMW stuff. I actually started serious wiki editing with templates and the mediawiki languages last summer so, please tell me more I am intrigued. :D - Yandere Talk to me... 10:02, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
I started contributing to templates and stuff in September 2012, you have no excuses. Discussion with SMW implementation is on [[User:Dr ishmael/SMW]], where I troll poor ishmael to death with dumb questions.--Relyk ~ talk > 10:13, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

output list from #ask[edit]

The ul format is a native format for #ask, you don't have to #arraymap it. :P If you're curious, here is a list of all supported formats. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 13:01, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Siege weapons[edit]

Is there a reason why you are removing helpful extra information from the articles? As far as I am aware, Dagger spent a lot of time organizing the articles in a usable way, so it would be nice if you could discuss the changes with him. Thanks! poke | talk 10:35, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Ah ok, I was not aware of this. Basiclly I was searching for infomation, and realized that this place was pretty unorganized. I found infomation about the Bluprints in the article of the siege weapon. Found information about the siege weapon in the bluprint article, but no information about the blueprint itself etc.
I see the use of extra information, but I wanted to break every article down to a basic struction of information, that should definitly be in the article, to get an overview what exactly is missing. So a blueprint article should have basic information about the blueprint, a superiour blueprint article should have the reciepe how to construct this thing etc. The basic blueprints are missing an aquisition section for example.
As I said additional information is a good thing, but currently there is some basic infomation missing.
But thanks for the information, I will definitly talk with dagger about this. - Yandere Talk to me... 10:46, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Removing the word "Signet" from skill descriptions[edit]

Hello :) Is there a technical reason why you have been removing the word "Signet" from the descriptions of such skills? It is, after all, exactly what the tooltip says, and also a handy link to the Signet page for the user's convenience. --Alad (talk) 18:40, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Basiclly because of consitancy. Most Signet skills didn't had the word 'Signet' there only a few of them.
I considered the idea of leaving it in because it makes it easier to reach the signet page, but every signet has the 'signet skill type' which links to the signet page already so i dicided to go with the mayority of skills.
But know you said something interesting. Is the tooltip information inconsitent through out the game. Or has every Signet skill the word 'Signet' before 'passive' and 'active'? - Yandere Talk to me... 21:00, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
We don't leave the skill type in the description for any skill because we list it seperately.--Relyk ~ talk < 22:16, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
That's not the skill type, it's the description. The skill type isn't on the signet skill tooltips like it is on other skills, because the word signet is already in the description. If you want to consider "Signet Active" and "Signet Passive" as two skill types for signet skills, then you should better remove the words Active and Passive from the infoboxes too, according to your rules. I actually don't see why the tooltip text shouldn't be copied word for word. Do you have a good reason for omitting that first word on every tooltip? Is it to save a few bytes?
And yes, Yandere, every signet skill for every class has the words "Signet Active" and "Signet Passive" on their tooltips, I just checked it. Someone has just been removing the word signet from some skills here. --Alad (talk) 02:02, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
I have no strong feelings about this topic. I just went with the majority so it would result in fewer edits. As long as it is consitent for all Signets every solution is fine by me. (Forgot to log in O_o) - Yandere Talk to me... 02:36, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
We use the skill description to define the skill type. We just decided to separate the skill type from the rest of the description (by us, I mean before me). It makes complete sense to have skill type separate from the game description, I don't know why Anet chose to stick the skill type in the description in the first place.--Relyk ~ talk < 03:11, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
(out of context) Yandere has been removing the "signet" part in "Signet Active" and "Signet Passive"? My discussion is totally unrelated then.--Relyk ~ talk < 03:12, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
The skill type is already shown in the infobox, and we leave it out of the description to avoid duplication. It's not actually part of the skill description, it's just concatenated with it for display in the skill's tooltip so that it looks like a single string. For most skill types, this isn't a problem.
Signets are different. I *suspect* that the passive and active descriptions are two separate strings, and the "Signet Passive:"/"Signet Active:" lead-ins are, again, concatenated with those strings for display. So again, the "Signet" part there is not actually part of the description, so we can leave it out, but we have to keep the "Passive"/"Active" identifiers. Make sense? —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 04:06, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
Actually yes. It would be a kind of convoluted solution. But that wouldn't be the first time I have seen something like this. ^^ - Yandere Talk to me... 11:44, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
What would make sense to me is to leave all the text in the tooltip there. One word for every skill tooltip isn't that much duplication, and helps in two ways: To reinforce the info that this skill belongs to a certain family of skills (and yes, even if that info is in the infobox), and it provides a link within the description, to the skill type page. Given that this description is frequently generated, using the {{skill}} template, on other related pages, having that linked word on the description is definitely a plus. Finally, I believe the big "" quotes, and signatures saying "--In-game description", need to be respected by faithfully duplicating the tooltip, which is the only in-game description and reference that we have. Duplication isn't bad unless it's excessive. In this case, I believe it's beneficial.
(As a side discussion, Ishmael, it could make perfect sense to me, as the coloring of the tooltip text for signets suggests, that they're in fact made up of two different and related skill types: The "Signet Passive" skill type provides a constant buff which is interrupted by the activation and cooldown of its sister skill, and the "Signet Active" skill type is a normal type of skill which does its thing when activated and disables its sister skill.) --Alad (talk) 21:04, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Map icons[edit]

Why did you move all the icons to {{map icon}}, many of the icons aren't used or limited to the map, especially ones like dialogue icons.--Relyk ~ talk < 18:57, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Well I see the discussion, but I made a giant discussion on overhauling the icons on Guild_Wars_2_Wiki_talk:Community_portal/Archive_8#Merging icon templates >.>--Relyk ~ talk < 19:04, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
I totally missed the discussion that you linked, I will look through it by time. The diffrent icon templates got kind of problematic because they all used diffrent formating and it became kind of strange. I moved everything to the map icon template because most icons I moved in there are in fact also map icons and this was basiclly the biggest icon template anyway. The dialoge icons were a bit odd, but basiclly follow the same use in this wiki as Ishmael said on the map icon talk page. A general 20px icon template for all 20px icons we use in this wiki would be ideal in my opinion.
I totally see why the dialog icons are strang in the map icon template and you can basiclly still call the old dialoge icon I just wanted to make sure these icons follow an identical formating. Because an event icon should behave diffrent than a dialog icon when called. I hop that makes it clear as I said i will read through your proposal, and perhaps we can work something good out together. - Yandere Talk to me... 20:05, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
A this discussion. That was bafore I went into my hiatus, that's why I basiclly didn't remember the thing anymore. Actually our ideas are not so diffrent the diffrence is that I stick with the original templates event icon, dialog icon gathering icon etc. and let them call the master template (which became map icon and yeah it is not a good name for that what it does. It was the fastest solution I could came up with becaue it is really jarring that two icon templates which should work identical do infact do not work identical. It is not that I want to replace event icons I jsut want that these templates call a master template for consistent icon use in the wiki. I hop I am not babbling my head hurts like hell. - Yandere Talk to me... 20:16, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
I already made a master list like you did. Poke pointed out that a master template (master list) makes stuff harder to edit. I found I agreed with him as I worked on the icons. I'm perfectly fine working with a giant list and then implement other templates off it, but it makes it much harder for less experienced editors and more complicated to change. You also have to address all the possible name types. My preferred approach is using the icon template for standard formatting, then having "groups" of icons for generating the icons. I have it worked out on User:Relyk/icon. For any icon that is used in multiple places, like special event icons on the map and npcs, it makes sense to have a special event icon template.--Relyk ~ talk < 19:44, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
Ah that looks interesting. Actually not a bad approach.
A thing I would like to point out is the fact that many icons are not clearly a part of one category. For example some of the service icons are the icons that float over the head of the NPC, others are the icons which are shown on th map sometime both are identical while other times they are not. And by the way I think the split of NPC services in vendor, trainer and craftsmen is kind of problematic that should simply be on template. To much spliting can also be confusing.
Scout is also a problematic thing, because is this a map icon or a serverce. Now you can say it is clearly a service because it is not part of the map completion, but temple and dungeon are also not part of the map completion, and scouts are closely tied to hearts etc. Most splits we do are kind of arbetary. The event icons and probably the dialog icons are the only one which I find unproblematic. The rest can be pretty difficult to categories and the current categorization is purely historical.
By the way I was the genius you put the switch statement in the file staement, because the pixel number varied in all templates between 16px and 20 px, so I thought things would be at least consistent. ^^ - Yandere Talk to me... 20:17, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
That's what I was saying with "icons in multiple places". Most of those are special event icons and have theme of being related to the special event even if they're services/eveents/etc. If we can put an icon in a more specific category than map, that is ideal, the icon on the map can indicate a service/event/object. The services template is suppose to merge the vendor/trainer/craftsmen split we have. It's going to match the services icons in the NPC infobox.
Any time we have to use {{!}}, I cringe. That's why I prefer file/template inline, it looks clean and people won't be confused.--Relyk ~ talk < 20:46, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
Actually I agree on the {{!}}, but I think it is ok in templates. It is a total no go in mainspace however (at least for me). But garanted it doesn't make the template better to read. Your wrapper idea basiclly solve this problem because the wrapper is set to 20px, so there will be not much problem when as long as everybody uses your wrapper. - Yandere Talk to me... 20:51, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

a little thing[edit]

Thanks for creating that Aetherblades category. It reminded me of something that had bugged me: how we had pages/categories named with the singular form of an organization name that had a distinct plural form. Separatists was already correct, but Peacemakers and Wardens were not. So thank you for triggering that rampage. :) —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 20:11, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
