Official Wiki!? Edit


How do you delete an account and make sure all related comments are removed? If memory serves correct a user is entitled to account deletion- either by themselves or by an admin. It is requested off the admin to remove any and all builds by the said person as well as you have a policy against copyright and the build is effectively copyrighted from this day forward. Anything that is placed in "public domain" can also be removed due to copyright and therefore we actually went through the process of copyrighting my husband's build according to United KIngdom Law- you are obliged not to host his copyrighted build. So please could my account- Lycanine and my husband's account be removed from this site as well as his build. Thank you for your cooperation.

Why do skill on build bars now redirect to the official wiki instead of Guildwiki? — ( ɔ \ ʇ ) uɐɥʇıǝɹ Reithan Sig 18:03, 10 October 2007 (CEST)

Also, with the change to official wiki skill bars the profession label "any" is broken. It now shows as "No Profession" and the icon is a broken link. — ( ɔ \ ʇ ) uɐɥʇıǝɹ Reithan Sig 19:45, 10 October 2007 (CEST)
Bug will be fixed. Our skill database are based on the information from official guild wars wiki (gwBBcode's skill db). At this moment I feel that we do have closer bond to official Wiki then to a sold out, commercial, full of gold selling ad's on GuildWiki. The very last thing we need is to support this kind of Wiki and generate more traffic that will again represent in more cash for some people who has nothing to do with guildwars community. gcardinal 20:08, 10 October 2007 (CEST)
Yeah, guildwiki was sold, but I have never seen a gold-seller ad on there and it has TONS more info than the official wiki, a bigger community, was the starting place of this wiki, and in general sucks less than the official wiki. — ( ɔ \ ʇ ) uɐɥʇıǝɹ Reithan Sig 20:19, 10 October 2007 (CEST)
Official wiki was first with new GW:EN skills, skill icons and a lot better when it comes to updating skill info. When it comes to advertising please see [1]. gcardinal 20:31, 10 October 2007 (CEST)
GuildWiki always had gold ads and crap like that. It was one of the first reasons why I installed adblock plus when I got firefox. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 20:38, 10 October 2007 (CEST)
Says right on the linked discussion that gold ads are blocked as soon as noticed and that they have filters to block most of them pre-emptively. I use guildwiki a lot. Just the fact that I've never seen one there says their measures are working really well. In any case, guildwiki has a bigger more active community than official wiki and has more of the non-offical info, like commentary on skills, and lots of other stuff. — ( ɔ \ ʇ ) uɐɥʇıǝɹ Reithan Sig 21:03, 10 October 2007 (CEST)

Can I get a summary of what happened? As far as I've puzzled out, an admin sold GWwiki, a GNU'd site (or summat), and absconded with about 62kbux of donation money/sale money, and people are cheesed. Accurate? Any curbstomping posses being formed? --71.229.204.25 21:17, 10 October 2007 (CEST)
I agree wholeheartedlu it was a dick move and sux a lot. On the other hand, he may have run with the money, but he didn't take off with all the work that the community put into the site. The work is still there and still great, and has a big community behind it. Why throw all that away just because of one idiot? — ( ɔ \ ʇ ) uɐɥʇıǝɹ Reithan Sig 21:23, 10 October 2007 (CEST)
(Edit Conflict) Gravewit, guy who ran the servers, sold it w/o consulting the community. The legality of selling a non-profit organization is in question, so that is a big deal. Basically, that's about it (kinda).
Was it a legally declared non-profit with tax exemption and the whole nine? If not, no legal issue. Either way it's still a crappy move...but that's, IMO, still not a reason to ditch all that work. No reason to throw out the baby with the bathwater, ya know? — ( ɔ \ ʇ ) uɐɥʇıǝɹ Reithan Sig 21:26, 10 October 2007 (CEST)

For as long as there is ad's on the guildwiki - I don't want to link there. On another hand we have 2 both GW: and GWW: so users may link to guildwiki or guildwarswiki in articles they do create.

'>' or '<'? You said '>', but it seems like you mean '<'. Imo, I couldn't care less about who owned or sold or profitted off what.

Can someone make a greasemonkey script that changes the links from wiki.guildwars.com to gw.gamewikis.org on the skillbars--82.153.71.91 14:52, 12 October 2007 (CEST)
First of all it's not his site. And solution like greasemonkey script will work nice for people who do care. However on the official side - pvxwiki is not going to support GuildWiki in its current state. One solution here can be to host skill database here on pvxwiki. gcardinal 16:36, 12 October 2007 (CEST)
Greasemonkey script? Whazzat? As for official policy towards GW, how can one petition to change that? I did see my first gold-ad on GW yesterday, and notified an admin who promptly responded with blocking it. Haven't seen another since. GW, imo is still superior to GWW, both in terms of content and community, and I'm sad to see it no longer affiliated with PVX. How can I try to change that? — ( ɔ \ ʇ ) uɐɥʇıǝɹ Reithan Sig 18:18, 12 October 2007 (CEST)

I feel like the change of liks was quite premature. GWW has almost no skill information apart from the basic attribute level = effect. I think its vert important to know extra data about how skills function and GWW simply dont have and experienced, active enough community to be as useful as GW anytime soon.--Coloneh 20:25, 12 October 2007 (CEST)

Skill descriptions, cooldowns, costs, activations, attribs, progressions, and any bugs concerning them are pretty much all there is to document about skills. Oh, also where to get. I've not noticed any particular lack of any of that in GWW. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 21:03, 12 October 2007 (CEST)
youre kidding, right? compare pages like Avatar of Melandru to Avatar of Melandru. GW has so much more information on virtually everything in the game--Coloneh 23:58, 12 October 2007 (CEST)
If we are going to stick with GWW, why no just port the information directly over? --InternetLOL 00:13, 13 October 2007 (CEST)
Your point is? GWW doesn't say as many obvious things. They've got the important functional clarifications that are needed. I personally don't expect every skill article to explain the meaning of recharge. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 01:26, 13 October 2007 (CEST)

There is MANY gold-ad's on guildwiki, just check my posts on community portal. Gold-ad's are the only thing that brings cash into guildwiki and some greedy owners. Hosting skill database here can be done pretty fast. We will inport it from guildwiki using official guildwiki dumps. Keep it up to date however will be user's responsibility to keep up to date. Keeping in mind that "mostly" build users are also skill database users - so host it here will make it just easy for us. gcardinal 21:32, 15 October 2007 (CEST)
hosting a skill database would be excellent, not to mention something that should have been around for a while. what can we do to help get it up?Darksig 14:45, 16 October 2007 (CEST)

You guys are upset about Gold Ads? You realize that Guild Wiki is using Google's ad program which doesn't separate "Video Game Ads" from "Video Game Item Selling Ads", right? Its not like Guild Wiki is specifically asking for Google to post Gold Service ads on there just so they can make a bajillion dollarzez. You guys have a policy called "Assume Good Faith." Exercise it, c'mon.Gold Dean 03:43, 17 October 2007 (CEST)

Thanks for switching the links over, GCardinal. Though I feel that most traffic goes from the GuildWiki to here, and not the other way around, it's still best to give Wikia as little support as possible. Since they're currently violating a non-commercial license, perhaps you should consider disallowing all links to the GuildWiki as a matter of principle? Tanaric 09:51, 24 October 2007 (CEST)

Too dictarianism, in my opinion. That, and way too hard to enforce. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 10:11, 24 October 2007 (CEST)
Not necessarily. We could just make both gw: and gww: go to GWW; it wouldn't disallow manual external linking, but all the existed IWL would go there. I'm not supporting that as a course of action, just saying how it could be done if we wanted it done. -Auron 10:27, 24 October 2007 (CEST)

Redesign Edit

Automatic Changes Edit

Is it at all possible for there to be automatic changed to switch builds between categories.

It would be a great timesaver (except maybe for the person who made the program). --- Monk-icon-Ressmonkey Ressmonkey (talk) 02:11, 24 October 2007 (CEST)

Nope. GCard said it would be way too difficult, easier just to do it manually. ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 02:17, 24 October 2007 (CEST)
I dont see how it would be hard. Whenever somebody votes, check the votes and ratings and perform accordingly. Then you would just read the file's code, check for the "{{" character, change the file's code to better match what category it would be in. As for abandoned or needs to be deleted builds, just do the same thing, but check every 1 hour or so to see if 14 day grace perios is up (this might be kinda difficult unless it is formalized how to set up dates). If it has to be deleted or moved, delete or move it. If this sort of stuff is impossible in php (which im 90% sure this site is written in), just use a pythonscript.

It is on the ToDo list. We're planning to develop a 'Build Summary Box' to replace all the build category tags. It's a bit tricky though since the internal category links have to be updated at the right moment within the MediaWiki data processing. As a preliminary solution, we could first make a special page that lists all builds with wrong quality tags. But please be patient, we're both quite busy at work atm and like to spend some time with gfs, too. I didn't play GW since weeks iirc. – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 19:32, 24 October 2007 (CEST)

Trial Tags Edit

Nothing to do with Halloween. Original Trial Tag looked too much like the Testing Tag (which probably explains why we got a lot of votes on builds still in Trial). So, they were changed to green, but, those looked a lot like the Great Tag. So, the question was what color to use. Red was discussed, but red is used for Trash, blue, yellow, and green were also in use already, purple is used for Proposed Policies, and grey is used for Abandoned Templates, so what color would you suggest? Defiant Elements Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 03:40, 1 November 2007 (CET)

Should there be a link to the ratings on the talk page too, not just on the build page? Lack of it has been irritating me for some time now.

Account Deletion Edit

How do you delete an account and make sure all related comments are removed? If memory serves correct a user is entitled to account deletion- either by themselves or by an admin. It is requested off the admin to remove any and all builds by the said person as well as you have a policy against copyright and the build is effectively copyrighted from this day forward. Anything that is placed in "public domain" can also be removed due to copyright and therefore we actually went through the process of copyrighting my husband's build according to United KIngdom Law- you are obliged not to host his copyrighted build. So please could my account- Lycanine and my husband's account be removed from this site as well as his build. Thank you for your cooperation. Lycanine 02:53, 24 November 2007 (CET)

Not sure where you might have remembered that from. Users in the standard rights-group don't have the server access necessary to delete accounts, or even their user pages. I personally am very surprised that the legal system in the UK allows a citizen to copyright anything that was previously released and distributed to the public domain. Fact is that your (husband's?) build wasn't copyrighted until after it had been modified and re-distributed by other users. My e-mail is made available at PvX:ADMIN; if you could send me verification of this copyright, it would allow us at the site to come into compliance with your claim . - Kowal Krowman {{sysop}} 07:49, 24 November 2007 (CET)
When you upload something to the wiki you agree to place it under the Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 2.5 Generic license. The UK law can't say anything about that. Also the copyright on any piece of text, images, etc can't be changed to a more restricting copyright later on, only to a more lenient one. Also, removing someones account from the database is a very complex and time taking thing, requiring someone to temper with the databae manually. If the user has any contributions is gets even more complicated and might break something. Due to this wikis don't offer the possibility to delete your account. A permanent ban or password randomisation are the best things one can do. -- (gem / talk) 08:18, 24 November 2007 (CET)

1) Go to PvXwiki:Sandbox and hit edit.
2) Create a link to the page name you want. Ensure that the name follows correct PvX formatting - it should have the word Build: followed by the abbreviations for the two professions (e.g. - A/Mo for Assassin/Monk, W/any for Warrior/any secondary profession). There should not be a space between the Build: and the professions. After the professions goes the build name, which should be somewhat descriptive, either a brief summary of the purpose (e.g. - Elona Reach Runner) or having something to do with the skills. So, for example, if you wanted to make a Dervish/Necromancer build for farming hydras, you'd make a link to Build:D/N Hydra Farmer
3) To create said link, surround the name of the page with two brackets. Example:

[[Build:D/N Hydra Farmer]] shows up as Build:D/N Hydra Farmer

4) After typing that into the sandbox, save the page. The link should appear broken (red links are broken, meaning the page they link to doesn't exist).
5) Click on the link. It will take you to the page you want and will automatically be on the editing screen.
6) Copy the text from PvXwiki:Style and formatting, paste it into the page, and then fill in the details of your build.

Edit

We all have been waiting for a solid solution to all our hosting and financial problems and here it is!

After a few weeks of negotiations with Razer™ we finally reached agreement where Razer™ will sponsor PvXwiki! Deal includes both full cover of all hosting costs as well as providing us with prizes for all kind of contests we will hold here on PvXwiki. First trial period of contract are for the 3 month but if all goes well will be extended.

Deal includes that only banners from Razer™ will be shown on PvXwiki as well as other minor things. We will also host news and other information about Razer™ products.

Personally, I couldn’t dream of a better and more secure solution. And when such cool company wants to sponsor us – I think it all says what a great job we did here on PvXwiki.

Why do you own, Gcardinal. For the second time i must thank god we have you as an owner. Imo, update the main page immediately, as currently mmosite is still there.Dark0805sig2 19:35, 10 December 2007 (CET)

Builds and GW2Edit

As you might have noticed, ArenaNet put up GuildWarsWiki2. That raises one important question for me: Where will builds for Guildwars2 be hosted at? At GW2W, at PvXwiki, at PvX2wiki?

One solution I could imagine are having all content at one wiki, like it used to be in the early days of guildwiki. Another idea would be to keep the separation between normal content and builds and have some sort of coopartion between the two wikis (for example much more cross-referencing). What is everyone here thinking? --Xeeron 08:28, 21 December 2007 (EST)

I think the best solution will be to host both GW and GW2 builds on same Wiki. Mostly becouse of the policy's and extensions that will work great in for GW2 as well. However I will register some domains just in case. 193.215.6.253 08:42, 21 December 2007 (EST)
gw2builds.com and pvxwiki2.com has been registered. just in case. gcardinal 12:27, 21 December 2007 (EST)

User Boxes! Edit

What are they and how do you make them/ get a list of them? EoD Itzl 17:45, 27 December 2007 (EST)

Use the userbox template. Best way to learn how to use it is to copy+paste off of other people's pages. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 20:15, 27 December 2007 (EST)

PvX Convert link not going to correct address: Edit

Currently, the link in the tool box goes to: http://www.pvxwiki.com/index.php?title=Special:PvXconvert and should be going to: http://pvx.wikia.com/wiki/Special:PvXConvert (Notice "/wiki/" missing in original link).

Also, the decode link goes to: http://www.pvxwiki.com/index.php?title=Special:PvXdecode and should go to: http://pvx.wikia.com/wiki/index.php?title=Special:PvXdecode (Notice "/wiki/" missing in original link).

When you use the decode option, after the page tries to load, put in "/wiki/" after the "pvxwiki.com" and it works.

It's been mentioned before. I have no idea how I'd fix links in the toolbox. When gcardinal gets back from his vacation (later today, I think) he'll probably fix it. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 12:23, 29 December 2007 (EST)

PvXWiki Greasemonkey script to use Guildwiki instead of GWW Edit

Hi. I created a greasemonkey script to change the official GWW links to Guildwiki links. That way users that like Guildwiki can still use it, and people that like GWW can use that.

http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/19543

I quickly glanced down the discussion and didn't see any other link to a script. Let me know if you have any issues, thanks. (Is there a better place to post this?). Latch 16:57, 8 January 2008 (EST)

I have a question: i made an account on this site but forgot to use the email verification code. I just checked it and noticed the code is expired. is there a way to get a new code?

{{votewipe|reason}} Edit

make one imo. The noticeboard shouldn't really be used just because a build is being worked on and needs a vote wipe. It should be used to report incorrect votes instead. Would also limit the amount of times the build specific issues need to be archived. I also suggest a Category:Candidates for a vote wipe, or something similar to see all the builds that are tagged with {{votewipe|reason}}. Just a suggestion <.< — ViYsig5Victoryisyours (talk/pvxcontribs) 21:34, 17 January 2008 (EST)

Rating threshold Edit

When I try to rate builds I get a page telling me that I must have made 8 edits before I can rate builds. As can be seen from Special:Contributions/Cynical, I have made the required number of edits but it still won't let me rate. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
