Welcome[edit]

Hello there, welcome to the guild wars 2 wiki!

It'd be great if you could use the "show preview" to check your edits before submitting them as this will help reduce the number of times that your page appears in Special:RecentChanges ^^. Evidently if you need any help with formatting, just ask someone (even if you post here on your talk page I'm sure somebody will notice). -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 14:05, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks ^^ Sorry about the edits, I will take a look at Preview. Zuphixavex (talk) 14:11, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
No worries. I hope you find something here to be useful! -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 14:18, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
I've been lurking since release and used to contribute to GWW, it's hard for me to find something that's not useful :D Zuphixavex (talk) 14:22, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Attribute[edit]

I'm not quite sure what you were intending to do with your edit on that page. Your summary stated you were removing the "Attack" attribute, but I had already removed that back in April. It looks like you might have been editing an old version of the page from before April 15. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 13:14, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

I think I found it: this diff against January 30, 2013, shows the only change being removal of "Attack (statistic)".
In the future, be careful when reviewing old revisions of pages, because when you click the "edit" tab, you are editing that old revision, not the current one. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 13:19, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Ah, thank you. I had been linked to that page from someone using it as a source for an argument, I simply told him that it was not used for anything and thought that it shouldn't even be on the wiki page any more. How would I check if it was an old page in future? Zuphixavex (talk) 16:32, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
When you're viewing an old revision, there will be some lines just below the page title that say "Revision as of <date> by <editor>" and then links to the next older/newer revisions.
I'm guilty of doing the same thing, and it got so bad at one point that I wrote a bit of JavaScript in User:Dr ishmael/monobook.js to hide the edit tab when I'm viewing an old revision. You can add it to your own User:Zuphixavex/monobook.js, if you want:
if (window.location.href.indexOf('oldid=') >= 0) {
  document.getElementById('ca-edit').style.display = 'none';
}
