I just made my user page. I've been using wiki's for a while and signing but... I see people that sign and have like a little picture next tot heir signatures. How do i do that? All i can do is Elementalist-icon-smallFire Tock 06:45, 23 September 2007 (CEST) or Fire Tock 06:45, 23 September 2007 (CEST)Elementalist-icon-small. I can't get it to be RIght next to my name.Fire Tock 06:45, 23 September 2007 (CEST)

First off, you should upload whatever picture you want to use under the name of "firetock-signature.jpg" or something similar, so you can link it to your userpage "#REDIRECT [[User:Fire Tock]]". Then, edit your signature (see preferences at the top right), to say something like -[[User:Fire Tock|Fire Tock]][[Image:firetock-signature.jpg]]. Lastly, make sure to check the "raw signature" checkbox in preferences, right below the textbox where you just entered the signature. –Ichigo724Ichigo-signature 15:55, 23 September 2007 (CEST)

Man that would be so great if pvx implemented like a "Sort by proffesion" column so that if we want a build for ele we clikc on "Elementalist" and it gives us all of the buildsKlomi 15:14, 4 October 2007 (CEST)

We sort of do - the links on the main page are sorted alphabetically, so just look for the Es. The only ones that share a first letter are the Monk and the Mesmer, but it's fairly easy to tell them apart. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 17:51, 4 October 2007 (CEST)
We also have a page for each profession type with a list of that professions builds. However those pages list all builds, good, bad, and untested, rather than only good. єяøהħ 19:02, 4 October 2007 (CEST)

Personally, I don't really like the use of #F0F0FF for the background-color of the <pvxbig></pvxbig>-tags. It looks really, really faint to me:
random text ← #FAFAFA (currently)
random text ← #E0E0E0 (comparison)
I do like the new icon for this wiki though! -- User Corrran sig (CoRrRan / talk) 22:47, 9 October 2007 (CEST)
It all depends on the user screens, and most gamers don't have the light/brightness level of monitors at max so all colors below #E0E0E0 looks almost as they was white. There is always people with old CRT or who hit Auto-Detect on brand new 21" LCD and connects with old VGA cabel from 386. Both on my screen at home, at work and on my laptop colors looks as they sould look. However if to many people are having problems - we can change. gcardinal 20:24, 15 October 2007 (CEST)

While i love the new design i have one question to ask-about the links-now all the stuff on the build box goes to the offical wiki (which is fine) however does that mean that all of the [[GW:blahblah|blah]] tags now go to the offical one or are they still the unofficial one?PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 23:01, 9 October 2007 (CEST)

Is there like a way to make it so you can be notified if any builds are moved into say "Great AB"

cause I tried watching it and all I get are when someone changes something like some text on the actual page The preceding unsigned comment was added by Brood Star (contribs) .

That's all you need to do, and just watch for notifications that the testing tag is changed to a great tag. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 05:08, 10 October 2007 (CEST)
There's no way to be notified whenever pages are added to a specific category, as far as I know. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 06:46, 10 October 2007 (CEST)
Pages are only added to a category when the content of that page is added to include the code that adds the page to the category. No, you can't watch a category to see when pages are added to and removed from it, but you can watch a page to see when it's added to or removed from a category. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 06:51, 10 October 2007 (CEST)

I have absolutely no idea what you just said, but I think it has something to do with that the original maker of this site doesnt like Guildwiki's source which it draws from, like the Microsoft Foundation Code, but for wikiperia. Either that, or I know nothing at all... --- Monk-icon-Ressmonkey Ressmonkey (talk) 04:43, 10 October 2007 (CEST)

Comments on the above poll

While most of the community may be at Guild Wars Wiki, GuildWiki has much better skill articles than GWW as of now. Antiarchangel 02:02, 11 October 2007 (CEST)

Guildwiki just has better talk pages. :) See gw:Talk:Defensive Anthem. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 02:14, 11 October 2007 (CEST)

Consolidating our links to all lead to one wiki might be nice, but the ability to use inter-wiki links for both Guildwiki and GWW is very important. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 02:14, 11 October 2007 (CEST)

On a side note, we would still have an inter-wiki link for GuildWiki, we would just redirect gw: to GWW. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 04:06, 11 October 2007 (CEST)

Goodwiki versus Ginormously Gay Wiki has been a hot topic before (see /Archive 4). Most of us come from Guild Wiki and have an attachment to there. —ǥrɩɳsɧƿoɲ 02:58, 11 October 2007 (CEST)
And that attachment is why I feel so betrayed by it now, hence my leaving that wiki and my support for this poll. Wikia to me is like one giant troll. And you know what the templates say; don't feed them, make 'em starve (by forsaking their wiki). I don't particularly like the official wiki either but it at least hasn't sold out. — Hyperion` // talk 03:42, 11 October 2007 (CEST)
To be fair, how can you sell out if you always have been owned by a commercial entity? --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 03:46, 11 October 2007 (CEST)
Yeah, Official Wiki has been sold-out since the moment it was conceived. I would rather Wikia than ANet. —ǥrɩɳsɧƿoɲ 03:48, 11 October 2007 (CEST)


  1. Gwiki has more info, when GWW has more info we can link there.

My 2 cents. — Skakid9090 03:49, 11 October 2007 (CEST)

(edit conflict)Edru: Well yeah true, but you know what I mean. I will rephrase; Guildwiki has sold out, therefore I now prefer official wiki. If someone is linked to Gwiki from here and clicks on an ad there, Wikia gets money (inadvertenly because of here). I don't like that idea. And on the plus side, the official wiki's skill pages are a tad flashier, lol. Grinch: Why would you rather Wikia get money than the maker of the game we are here for? — Hyperion` // talk 03:53, 11 October 2007 (CEST)

I understand why we don't want to link to GuildWiki, but why change the prefix over it? Besides, there are some pages where GuildWiki, unfortunately, does things better than the official wiki, so there may be times when it's appropriate to link there. See PvX:IWL. Outdated, but the spirit is appropriate, I think. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 03:56, 11 October 2007 (CEST)

Because Wikia has all sorts of wikis I use. Anet doesn't get money for their wiki (they lose money, remember? No ads) so if they shut it down, they would have more money to spend. —ǥrɩɳsɧƿoɲ 03:57, 11 October 2007 (CEST)
Point taken, but there's no chance it'll be shut down. And Armond I think if we were gonna link to the official wiki but didn't change the prefixes then we would have to change every previous link made with the gw prefix to gww. Which would take a ridiculous amount of time. I think that logic does prevail for now though, and Skakid gets teh winrar. As IWL says we're not allied with either and just want the best information. — Hyperion` // talk 04:01, 11 October 2007 (CEST)
The point of changing the prefix is so we don't have to go through each and every single page on this site and exchange gw: for gww: or some such. We'd still have an inter-wiki link that redirected to GuildWiki, we'd just have to come up with another. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 04:14, 11 October 2007 (CEST)
Tbh I'd be willing to take the time to go through the builds to see what articles need to switch to what. If we want to link primarily to GWW from now on, cardinal or hhhippo can make a bot for it - no point in making the linking procedure counter-intuitive. It's confusing as hell for new members and difficult for the rest of us. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 21:00, 11 October 2007 (CEST)
I would be firmly opposed to such a bot running. Authors of a build can link to whichever wiki we want; there is no "primary" wiki. We are, now, a separate entity, and shouldn't really care about either one too much.
Those of you who think GWiki is bad just because of gravewit's sellout; I find GWW to be a hell of a lot more obnoxious. It has the current resident idiots and even the idiots that managed to become sysop (quite a number of these, scarily enough...); those people alone are enough to chase me away. Add on to that the pointless policies and the "anet-can-do-no-wrong" crowd... and you get a really shitty place :/
But all that nonwithstanding... the thing we should be looking for is content. We aren't trying to boycott GWiki or favor GWW; we're trying to link to whichever site gives better info on any given topic. If it's Gwiki, that's fine; if GWW has more content on the topic, that's fine too. We really shouldn't spend any time bickering about this. -Auron 00:30, 12 October 2007 (CEST)

Soo... is this vote just gonna sit there or are we going to change something?! I'd rather have the PvX wiki link to skill pages where I can learn useful things, such as how GW:Spirit Light "sacrifices health before healing", instead of knowing that GWW:Spirit Light is "Useful for hybrid Restoration/Communing users." --Emeralddragon2 05:24, 4 November 2007 (CET)

I'm sorry i'm constantly talking on this discussion page in case any of you are kind of mad at me, I look at this archive and see, wow I've wirrin alot so my fellow Amercians/whatever you are, I'm sorry...And that's all i have to say. Ok, Now to say what i wanted to say in the start but couldnt say becaused of that speech i sayed... What if we added in another attribute for titles. Lets say a EoTn build comes out but most of it's skills are from the asura rank. What if you wanted to know how far you need to be in the title to use it properly. Like the gloom farmer would look like this...

<pvxbig> [build prof=e/a firema=12+1+3 waterm=2+3 energy=6+3 shadow=11 Lightbringer=4][Shadow Form][Death's Charge][Glyph of Sacrifice][Meteor Shower][Bed of Coals][Frozen Burst][Flame Burst][Flame Djinn's Haste][/build] </pvxbig>

  • Note the Lightbringer rank on the bottom.
  • Or Like a said before Lets say a EoTn build comes out but most of it's skills are from the asura rank. What if you wanted to know how far you need to be in the title to use it properly and it looked like this...

<pvxbig> [build prof=ele/any energy=12+2 EarthMagic=12+1+1 Asura=6][Air of Superiority][Mindbender][Summon Mursaat][Energy Blast][Earthen Shackles][Magnetic Surge][Ward of Weakness][Ward Against Melee][/build] </pvxbig>

  • See how you have the rank but it doesn't show to damage on the skills.

the below suggestions won't be implemented, because it's too much work to get the title on the level you give, or if you set it too low, you can't lower it. pve skills should not be used in a way that their title level matters. but i would indeed like to have a different display so you know roughly what dmg/etc. you will have. - Y0_ich_halt 18:15, 20 October 2007 (CEST)
Neat idea, but no, title ranks aren't scalable. The best you can do is use the "@x" function (for example, [Air of Superiority@4]) to indicate the minimum level. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 03:19, 21 October 2007 (CEST)

Featured Trial builds?

I had a thought (shock horror!) why don't we have like a featured trial bilds section, so people can get thier trial builds more widely known and get advise on them before putting them into testing. Thoughts? PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 01:22, 23 October 2007 (CEST)

could someone maybe program some sidebar for the .css that lists the oldest builds in trial, testing, whatsoever? - Y0_ich_halt 17:30, 23 October 2007 (CEST)

Lost Build

I submitted a build by the name Me/P Fragile Paragon, did someone move it or did you do a server rollback? Anyway it just disapered, Id like to know what happend to it--iktor 01:10, 26 October 2007 (CEST)

Take a look at the deletion log (here). I'm afraid it got removed. Hammer And Sickle۷ïεדt/c 01:18, 26 October 2007 (CEST)
(Edit conflict)I PvX:Welled it. Would you like a copy in your userspace? Or you can put it back if you want... probably shoulda waited a little bit. ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 01:19, 26 October 2007 (CEST)
There ya go. ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 01:19, 26 October 2007 (CEST)

Skill Linking

Perhaps there is a way to make the linking from skill templates user configurable? So the links could go to GWW or GuildWiki depending on a configuration setting. I really hate the lack of additional info for skills on GWW. Irkm Desmet 13:30, 26 October 2007 (CEST)

Yeah I agree with that, Maybe when you click on a skill link then you get a page that pops up and says "Would you like to go to gw: or gww:?" And whichever you click on then up comes the skill at the website you chose.Fire TockUser Fire Tock Sig 02:05, 27 October 2007 (CEST)

Doesn't that solution slow down the process of examining a skill bar by a lot? Imho another solution is required. -- (gem / talk) 10:05, 27 October 2007 (CEST)
I say put it in preferences or something. If that is possible, which I think so... ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 15:17, 27 October 2007 (CEST)
We are going to host our own skill database. 08:26, 21 November 2007 (CET)

Untested Builds

I know builds are put on the main page to attract attention, but there should be at least some standard of quality. To give terrible builds attention irritates me, for consequently, builds with potential remain in obscurity. Maybe it just affects me more because I've got a build I'd really like to showcase. What's the protocol for getting builds on the main page? Shogunshen 21:44, 29 October 2007 (CET)

Just put it up once the previous one has been categorized. - Kowal Krowman {{sysop}} 02:59, 30 October 2007 (CET)
=0. I didn't know we could? Cause the main page is protected. How do you then? Shogunshen 03:02, 30 October 2007 (CET)
Click the little 'Change current featured builds' link. --Wizardboy777 SigWizardboy777(T/C/Sysop) 03:03, 30 October 2007 (CET)
ahhhh. Now I see. Danke gut. Shogunshen 03:15, 30 October 2007 (CET)

Untested Featured builds

Is there perhaps someway of making it so you can't switch a build unless it's been vetted or up for so many days? I ask because my build was only up for 2 hours and i wouldn't feel right just changing it back.....PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 17:19, 31 October 2007 (CET)


I ahd a thought. Could we not get a subsection for equipment or something (mainly unique items)even if it's just like a little table with all of the items which link to where ever we're linking to now.PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 20:56, 11 November 2007 (CET)

Most people just use PvP equipment... and anyway, it's not hard to look up what some mod does on GWiki, or even choose your own equips --MalaMala sig Mind Blast 18:47, 12 November 2007 (CET)

Main Page

I think it would be easier if the table was by proffesion. The general categories would be a proffesion (ex. Monk, Warrior) and next to it would be the Great, Good, Other, and All categories. If you clicked one of those categories (Great,Good,Other,All), it would come up with a page that would be divided into all the different categories like running, farming, Hero battles, ect. This layout would be easier if you were looking for builds for a certain proffesion.

Usually that wouldn't be the case however; I find the current layout much more convenient. — Tycn (talk*pvxcontribs) 08:39, 21 November 2007 (CET)


every time i open my watchlist, an error message saying 'The document does not contain any data' or something like that pops up. is that only my browser or do you have that problem, too? - Y0_ich_halt 15:57, 21 November 2007 (CET)

seems to be resolved... works fine now. - Y0_ich_halt 23:07, 21 November 2007 (CET)

New content

This new content project sound like a big one, so i was wondering if there was anyway me and other users could help out in anyway?PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 17:07, 21 November 2007 (CET)

Not at the moment no. I assume much of the actual work will be done via import of database dumps. Presumably, users will then be responsible for keeping the information up-to-date, but I don't think there's a lot that can be done at the moment (although I don't know for sure). Defiant Elements Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 18:46, 21 November 2007 (CET)
I only ask because it sounds liek a big project and i'd like to help out with big things, so they're quicker etc. but nvm then i guess PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 23:04, 21 November 2007 (CET)
I'll be sure to contact you if there's anything that can be done to help. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 23:06, 21 November 2007 (CET)
Thanks =) PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 23:16, 21 November 2007 (CET)

Please, please make it easy to get from the PvX Skill Database to the GWW and Guildwiki ones. Perhaps two links in each article could be provided. I still do not understand the rationale for this change. I have seen no discussion on this change, if there is one please point me to it. Otherwise, could someone explain what advantage do we get from duplicating the whole thing a third time? Irkm Desmet 13:49, 22 November 2007 (CET)

We've discussed it before. It's largely a contingency issue, a little bit of convenience, and little more reference to certain builds. Users will be able to search builds according to the skills used and features like that that aren't endorsed by either of the other wikis. That's what is in the works. - Kowal Krowman {{sysop}} 21:35, 22 November 2007 (CET)
I think it's a good idea-i mean this way we won't have to wait for GWshack to update skills will we? GC or Hippo can do it instead (this is what i'm understanding though i'm probably wrong =S) PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 23:12, 22 November 2007 (CET)
Heh, I think they'd be too busy to deal with it. That said, I'm sure certain people will take up the mantle anyway... -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 07:19, 26 November 2007 (CET)
Oh thatd be great! Some of us that normally don't contribute can ^.^--Shadow Sin 04:36, 27 November 2007 (CET)

WYSIWYG editor

An other maneer to get more visitors would be to provide a WYSIWYG editor such as WikiEd. Many people are wiki-frightened because of code. This is only an idea (I don't know very well PhP/Java), I know that this would mean to write additional code to WYSIWYG the build template wich would take some time. --Assassin&#039;s PromiseTtibot(Talk) 14:52, 25 November 2007 (CET)

TO tell you the truth I know nothing about wikicode and i manage to get around fine on this site. You can just copy what others have done or use the templates. --Peter 20:50, 7 December 2007 (CET)

The Link Switching

are we or are we not switching links? Majority of the community wants to stick with the unofficial yet i have seen many skills that link to the official wiki. Could someone please clear this up? Riff 10:42, 2 December 2007 (CET)

The question was whether the "gw:" prefix should be changed such that it redirected to GWW instead of GuildWiki. We didn't do that. However, the skill bars do redirect to GWW, and you can use "GWW:" to link to the Guild Wars Wiki. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 17:25, 2 December 2007 (CET)
but one of the reasons the community is against switching links is because of the lack of notes and discussion on skills. Riff 18:03, 2 December 2007 (CET)

just make gw go to unoffical and make gww leads to official  :P--«º¤¥Ω☼Vørråx☼Ω¥¤º» 22:31, 2 December 2007 (CET)

It's quite horrifically simple.

Things that link to


Things that link to

  • Links starting with "gw:" (e.g. [[gw:Stunning Strike|]] is Stunning Strike)
  • Links starting with "gww:" (e.g. [[gww:Stunning Strike|]] is Stunning Strike)
  • The pictures in skill bars on build pages.
