Because of agreement among all four of the Admins as well as all of the users who posted comments on the talk page, PvXwiki:Delete Unfavored Builds previously "Delete Old Builds" has been been made official policy. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 04:35, 25 April 2007 (CEST)

Welcome to BoD

Hey, mate. Saw you joined our guild. Welcome to MEEP. nice to see fellow MEEPers active on the GW Wikis. Ni sigNi 21:01, 26 April 2007 (CEST)

Haha, I just replied to your message welcoming me to MEEP on the forums, too. Thanks again. :P -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{Bacon}} 21:32, 26 April 2007 (CEST)
No love for the Blobulator? :( Although I don't think anyone in the guild knew my "alias"-esque thingy anyway until I got Tia and Armond to join MEEP XD *cough* This is Valen incase you didn't know, although Armond already knows, and then I doubt anyone else will actually read this section, anyway I'll stop now ^_^ Also what's wrong with porting a similar version of my official wiki userpage >.> I don't want to have to come up with another stupid one. I already left the GuildWiki one behind but I'll probably use this wiki. *sigh* --Blobulator 08:14, 5 May 2007 (CEST)
Hey Vallen, I wouldn't have guessed it was you either. You left SiC? And whats the scoop on MEEP? -- BrianG 19:24, 5 May 2007 (CEST)

Hah, we're going to delete all archived builds? -Auron 22:19, 30 April 2007 (CEST)

Apparently. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{Bacon}} 22:23, 30 April 2007 (CEST)
We should leave them as historical reference, imo. People may hear the names of the builds being thrown around in-game, and might want to look them up. GWiki doesn't host them anymore, we ought to, if only because no one else is. - Kowal Krowman (talkcontribs) 07:33, 8 May 2007 (CEST)

Hi there, I made a build on this link How do i get it checked? There is no information or useful link to any help on how to get it checked. Many thanks :)


FYI: It looks like you wanted to use a dynamic date, but your edit to Template:Unfavored-build appears to now makes the date static to May 11th. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (contribs) .

Well, yeah, once it becomes not-May 11, 2007, the template will show the date as that not-May 11 date whenever applied. The problem is that all the old templates show May 11, 2007, but once again I say it's possible (at this point I'd even say likely) that all builds will be moved to untested anyway. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 22:57, 11 May 2007 (CEST)
I saw it in the template, not in builds. Looking at the template, it will still show May 11th on the 12th, 13th, 14th, etc. It's coded as the text "11 May 2007", not using any mediawiki codes to generate that date. It's clearly hardcoded. You might want to take another look.
Gotcha. Think I know how to fix it. Thank you! -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 23:06, 11 May 2007 (CEST)
Just checking if you noticed ... it's still static ... if you're inserting a code, it's converting to the static date when you save the page.
AAGH! Ok. This is pissing me off. Thank you for your keen eye. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 23:12, 11 May 2007 (CEST)

Yeh, that is something we need to check (not that I am actually capable of doing so, but Cardinal can probably review the IP addresses or write a short script to compare the addresses. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 03:59, 14 May 2007 (CEST)

More vandalism

TYVM, much appreciated, my school (or should I say, all of Thurrock's schools) have a notorious history with vandalising wikipedia. I think the final figure is somewhere around 5000 students, with several hundred vandals. I appreciate stopping this madness. '~\^/~' Napalm Flame Napalm Flame Sig Image (talk)(contributions) 17:31, 14 May 2007 (CEST)

Manslaughter's e-denial build

Haha thanks for the bad comment on my E-denial build.... it isnt even a E denial build didnt you read the skills.... wither gives -1 energy degen and so does malaise ... but ether lord -2 degen so it gives them 0 regen so.... And EVEN if you delete it... im just gunna post it again... i got all the info saved
One step ahead of you.. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Manslaughter (contribs) .

If it's not an e-denial build, why does it have those three e-denial skills you mentioned? I'm sorry, but there doesn't seem to be any point to it. Therefore, it violates PvX:WELL. And if you try to re-post deleted content, it gets deleted immediately, no questions asked, and you've violated the final say of an admin. That's enough to earn you a short ban for vandalism. (It's not technically vandalism, I know, don't get nitpicky on me. You know you shouldn't do it, and you did it, so don't complain.)
Why are you so worked up about this, anyway? It's just one build. If it doesn't fit this community, use it in your own gameplay and post a new one. There are plenty of builds that work in-game, but aren't sophisticated enough to post on this wiki. Deal with it. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 23:29, 15 May 2007 (CEST)
He was already warned by me, see his talk page. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 23:34, 15 May 2007 (CEST)
Thanks. Your warning was much needed, I think, and I appreciate it. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 23:41, 15 May 2007 (CEST)
No problem. The whole situation was reminiscent of situations like with the Jaguar Sword build although on a much smaller scale, and, I think the key is to take some preemptive action before the situation can escalate. Hopefully, my attempt at conflict resolution will succeed. Where's Gares when you need him, huh? DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 23:44, 15 May 2007 (CEST)

Just a friendly suggestion, but, since you were a party involved in that little fracas along with Manslaughter, making the decision to delete the build might not have been the greatest. Not that I disagree in this instance, but it would be hard for you to stay unbiased given the situation, albeit the small situation, that arose as a result of that particular build. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 22:55, 16 May 2007 (CEST)

True... I hadn't thought about that (generally I don't). I'll restore for now. (If, on the other hand, some admin that wasn't involved in the fracas deleted it, that would be ok, right?) -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 22:56, 16 May 2007 (CEST)

I got it to upload somehow, by going to my sig image and choosing to upload a new version of the file under a different name. Don't know what's causing it to be so dodgy.

User:Armond/Skills template is being evil - I can't get it to display the proper skill type. It tends to show "elite" well, but it's not so happy with anything after that. Can anyone help? -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 00:32, 17 May 2007 (CEST)

Would it have worked better to just resurrect the old template, or would that have the same effect as your new one? Eronth 01:54, 17 May 2007 (CEST)

skill bar

Are there any plans to convert a skill bar to pvx format without requiring attribs/proff to be included? Eronth 01:54, 17 May 2007 (CEST)

I don't think that would work. The pop-up boxes display the skill damage, duration etc based on the attribute levels that you put in. You can use the older syle of skill bars if you don't want atts/profs. They are {{skill bar|skill 1|skill2|...}}; there are some examples in my sandbox if you'd like. - Kowal Krowman (talkcontribs) 01:59, 17 May 2007 (CEST)
I understand, I just see them all over the place and I started to wonder if I should be converting them or not. Eronth 02:06, 17 May 2007 (CEST)
Actually, I wouldn't bother with the Unfavored builds. Most of them clearly suck, we will likely delete them sometime in the future (PVX:WELL). - Kowal Krowman (talkcontribs) 02:09, 17 May 2007 (CEST) I have to pay attention to what I randomly pop up on. Can I tag obviously incomplete builds or just leave it go? Eronth 02:12, 17 May 2007 (CEST)
EDIT: And what should I about build stubs? Convert or no? Eronth 02:14, 17 May 2007 (CEST)
Obviously incomplete builds (like that one that was just a skill bar) are generally crappy. Add a delete tag, mention PvX:WELL in the reason, and let an admin decide. Stubs should be converted unless they obviously suck, in which case tag them as above.
As for a PvX code skill bar, you'd have to ask Cardinal. That's his department. I just slam stuff. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 04:13, 17 May 2007 (CEST)

I don't really know who to go to for this, but, how do I edit my sig. Eronth 04:46, 19 May 2007 (CEST)

Create a page like User:Defiant Elements/Sig and create your signature there using HTML (You can use that link or a similar one made by Armond, Krowman, etc. if you don't know how to write the HTML). Then, go to Preferences, and where it says nickname, insert {{subst:User:Eronth/Sig}} or whatever your link is into the box and make sure to check the raw signatures box. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 05:05, 19 May 2007 (CEST)
Awesome, I got it without any problems. I don't know the rules on sigs, but I assume mines legal. Thanks for helping me out -(eronth) no u 05:29, 19 May 2007 (CEST)
That sig ownzzzzz, but remember to use proper punctuation or people will mistake that for a question mark at the end of every post :P -Auron 05:32, 19 May 2007 (CEST)
No, it isn't legal, sorry. Read PW:SIGN. You can't use the <sup> tag in your sig and I don't think you can use <big> either. Just read the policy, it explains all of this. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 05:34, 19 May 2007 (CEST)
Oh noez. I'll have to work with it a little more : / Also, for the record, that thing at the very begining is called an interobang. Best punctuation ever! -(eronth) no u 05:40, 19 May 2007 (CEST)
Is it a question mark? Is it an exclamation point? Who knows! DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 05:42, 19 May 2007 (CEST)
Hmm, so I read PW:SIGN and saw how it said I can't use <big> because it disrupts flow. I don't know about you, but on my side of the net <big> around the interrobang actually keeps size flowing.

without <big>: -(eronth) no u

with <big>: -(eronth) no u

Normal is just, too small. oh well. -(eronth) no u 05:52, 19 May 2007 (CEST)

Reset indent because I'm doing a bunch of paragraphs. There is a simple test: Highlight the character in question. If the blue highlighting "jumps" up or down, it will disrupt the flow. However, it only disrupts the flow on two adjacent lines - thus, the following would show disrupted flow:

Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
Blah blah blah blah blah blah
Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

However, the following will not disrupt the flow.

Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

Blah blah blah blah BLAH.

Blah blah blah blah bored.

To be honest, I don't see how often the first situation will come into play. I'm going to bring this up on PW:SIGN. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 23:53, 19 May 2007 (CEST)

I see what you mean. awesome, thanks for clarifying that. So, if I have a natural indent like this, it keeps flow even with super script? Making sure this post is long enough by typing a lot...

Slipmat's talk page

Hi. Please don't be upset with me, did I do okay this last edit to my talk page? Did I put the in there correctly so nothing wrong is done? Is there like a generic code site for wiki's in general so I'm not treating everything as a forum page, or whatever? Just so I understand what everything means, <> (()) etc etc. Thanks ~~~~ <--- Not working? !~~~~ HELP! what to do ~~~~ i'm user slipmatSlipmat 21:06, 23 May 2007 (CEST)

When you put <nowiki> in by itself, it doesnt show up (like in your post above). What nowiki does, is remove special formatting. (e.g. When you put ''' around words ('''Hello'''), It automatically bolds the font, if you place <nowiki> before it, you can then type the apostrophes without the font becoming bolded.) Using </nowiki> stops it from removing special formatting. So typing
<nowiki>'''hello''' </nowiki>'''world'''
would save as
'''hello''' world.
Because you started a <nowiki> in your post, but never used the </nowiki>, your ~~~~ didn't work. -(єronħ) no u 20:49, 23 May 2007 (CEST)

HAh, I didn't even recognize that i had that < .. nowiki > thing in there for it to not realize.. ahhh whatever, I suck. Any good places to understand that wiki commands that are out there I can visit? Slipmat 21:08, 23 May 2007 (CEST)

One more note to Slipmat: When replying on a discussion page, you should put some :::'s in front of each line. 'some' means one more than the post before you. This will create some indenting which makes it easier to track who answered whom.
