Pipe vs. Mouseover

Do you (you being whoever reads this) think we should start replacing broken skill links (e.g. [[Seeping Wound]]) with [[gw:Seeping Wound|Seeping Wound]] or <pvxbig>[[Seeping Wound]</pvxbig>? I think the pvxbig style would be a little easier, rather than typing gw: and either c&p the name of the skill or retyping each time, we could paste <pvxbig> on each side of the skill, then in the back remove one of the back end ] and add a / in the second pvxbig tag (so that it becomes <pvxbig>[[Seeping Wound]</pvxbig>). The only problem is, would that slow loading? -(єronħ) no u 20:55, 1 June 2007 (CEST)

I think from the readers point of view the PvXcode would be more useful than a link to GuildWiki. However, two problems: 1) pvxbig introduces linebreaks, at least for the first skill in a paragraph. I guess we'd have to wait for GCardinal to code something like pvxsmall in order to have Mouseover-enabled skill names in running text. 2) It looks like a link, so it should be a link (in addition to the mouseover function). Which means that either the code should provide a link to gw automatically or it should be possible to embed it in a link. Again this means waiting for GCardinal to rise from RealVettingCodingLimbo. --Hhhippo 21:08, 1 June 2007 (CEST)
grr, I really don't wanna sit around, but I'd rather be making links into pvx mouseover than gw: redirects. -(єronħ) no u 21:12, 1 June 2007 (CEST)
We should really link skill images to G Wiki... just my opinion though. Readem (talk*pvxcontribs) 21:54, 1 June 2007 (CEST)
Yea, it's annoying seeing someone put up a minibuild, then not being able to mouseover or click the skill to follow a link. -(єronħ) no u 22:22, 1 June 2007 (CEST)
Are we talking about images or names here? Btw: Eronth, you are red! Someone should create you ;-) --Hhhippo 22:26, 1 June 2007 (CEST)
Images, and I went to specify mini builds.
Seeping Wound Dash Optional Critical Strike Wild Strike Jagged Strike Optional Shadow Refuge
If you click on the skill's image you go to the image, not the skill. -(єronħ) no u 22:35, 1 June 2007 (CEST)

Just a note, if you type in [[gw:Random page name|]] you get [[gw:Random page name|Random page name]]. Very easy to fix links. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 02:57, 2 June 2007 (CEST)

Tight, didn't know that. -(єronħ) no u 20:56, 2 June 2007 (CEST)

Notifying GCardinal-- (in case you cared.) -(єronħ) no u 19:39, 3 June 2007 (CEST)

Another note: There's a workaround for the linebreak problem: <pvxbig>

  • Put the skill (e.g. [[Seeping Wound]) in a bullet list

</pvxbig> That doesn't fix the problem, but can help in many cases. --Hhhippo 20:15, 3 June 2007 (CEST)


It indicates an un-patrolled edit. Edits made by sysops are automatically considered patrolled, so... basically, you're right. -Auron 04:28, 2 June 2007 (CEST)

Was about to say that. Sysops can also mark edits patrolled (basically meaning it has the red stamp of approval). -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 05:28, 2 June 2007 (CEST)
Cool, thanks. -(єronħ) no u 06:45, 2 June 2007 (CEST)

rfa's and clutter on the policy page

Beat me to the reverts

Thanks, we caught it at the same time. Was I a litte harsh? I tend to just give anyone who obviously vandalizes a reflexive temporary ban that can become permanent if they come back and do it again. Shireensysop 06:31, 20 June 2007 (EDT)

I caught it right as I was leaving, and I'd never banned anyone before. I figured if I gave a warning, the next person to catch it would ban, that's why I didn't. Now, to answer your question as to "was it too harsh", I say no, banned 1 day per build vandalled sounds fair to me. ‽-(єяøηħ) no u 13:29, 20 June 2007 (EDT)

Can u tell me if we are supposed to upload some builds or not? and what are the tags and how can i add them? Kastore 04:10, 21 June 2007 (EDT)

You can upload builds, and tags would be like putting {{build-stub}} on the top of your page. Right now our rating system isn't implimented, so wait a short while for that to appear. ‽-(єяøηħ) no u 04:13, 21 June 2007 (EDT)
Thx for helping. so the only thing we are doing right now is what? creating categories? Kastore 04:24, 21 June 2007 (EDT)
And testing the sorting, basically it's all tests. ‽-(єяøηħ) no u 05:07, 21 June 2007 (EDT)

User Ratings

I say go ahead. The system allready has a default safeguard in place to allow fro removal of rediculous votes. It should still apply to the author. Though a stipulation should be that at least 2 or 3 other votes must be made prior to the authors vote to allow him to see a possible alternative perspective before he rates his own build.

Regarding my rating on your Seeping Wound Build

You wanted an explanation for my rating on your Seeping Wound build, well here it is:

I have tried many seeping wound skill bars, one very similar to the one you have posted, the same attack combo with BoA (Before it was nerfed) thrown into it. The bar sucked, very badly. The old Guild Wiki had many many Seeping Wound builds posted into it, all of which sucked, and why? Because Seeping Wound is an awful elite. You gain an extra -3 Degen, this maxes the degen from your combo from 7 to 10, but at what cost? Your elite slot. Siphon Speed has the same cost, a lower recharge, and doubles as a snare/speed boost to you.

Every degen pip is -2 HP per second, so you gave up your elite slot for a whole


You needs another one, you is on 41 kb. -6 Hp per second. When you could be using elites such as Shadow Prison, Moebius Strike, Beguiling Haze, or Shroud of Silence, for MUCH better results. --Hikari 19:22, 9 July 2007 (CEST)

What elite would you suggest? ‽-(єяøηħ) no u 20:13, 9 July 2007 (CEST)
Shadow Prison, but that would make it a clone of a build we already have. --Hikari 20:01, 10 July 2007 (CEST)
Why that? Slow recharge and makes you only chain once every couple seconds. ‽-(єяøηħ) no u 20:00, 11 July 2007 (CEST)
Acts as both Shadow Step and Snare. Fastest rec in the game actually :P. Readem (talk*pvxcontribs) 20:04, 11 July 2007 (CEST)
Seeping wound build actually works pretty well... ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (talk · contributions) 20:05, 11 July 2007 (CEST)
Thank you, I'm not saying it's the master build, but I really doubt people even fully considered the build. Much less tested it. ‽-(єяøηħ) no u 20:11, 11 July 2007 (CEST)
Btw, if you think its decent, vote that way. ‽-(єяøηħ) no u 20:32, 11 July 2007 (CEST)
