Expert is hardcore. I'm working my way up to hard, and it's kinda rough. And yeah, on expert the first part is the hardest. With Lou (all battles really), because it's only who dies that matters, you want to spike him with three powers at once, not pressure him with them as you get them. Try to get a denial (lefty flip, amp overload, whammy, etc) with an increased notes (double, maybe difficulty up but I'm not sure that works on expert), I had some difficulty with Morello and Slash and then tried that with Lou and beat him my first try. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 00:52, 1 June 2008 (EDT)

Though it's worth pointing out that any pages in your userspace ending with a title ending with .js (I think .css does this too) are automatically locked so only you and admins can edit them.

Moving Discussion

The problem is not that the build was deleted quickly, it was that it was deleted without a WELL tag for the reason of WELL. So there is no way Rapta missed the time stamp. --- Monk-icon-Ressmonkey Ressmonkey (talk) 15:56, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

I read somewhere on here where it did happen during the same deletion session as the one in question. Choytw sig 1Choytw Talk Debates 16:00, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
This is what I'm referencing (in reply to your post on Rapta's page):
  • Given a chance to complete his/her build (this usually means that builds should not be deleted as inferior while they are still stubs)
  • Given a chance to understand the reason behind deletion beyond merely the statement of "PvX:WELL.
Choytw sig 1Choytw Talk Debates 16:04, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
In reality, the addendum is a guideline only - it was made to be a guideline, and not in the sense of "all policies are guidelines to admins", but in the "YAV is a guideline" sense. The point of it was to make it so users could understand why their build was deleted; in all reality, that's easily done after the fact. If that's necessary, I'll detail the reasons when I get a chance; if not, I really don't see what the problem is.
I was going to say I thought both our Bureaucrats were away from the wiki for the moment, leaving me the most senior admin on the site, until one of them EC'd me. I'm not going to blame Rapta for making one mistake - he's good at not making them - and I know Auron won't. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 16:10, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
I dont think this was a mistake. Rapta has done similar things before. For example, a copy of this had 3 votes (all 4.5+) and Rapta deleted it without a tag and without warning. Im pretty sure other people have complained about similar things besides these two incidents. --- Monk-icon-Ressmonkey Ressmonkey (talk) 16:18, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

You're all crying about a build with barbarous slice and no deep wound? You might want to right the wrongs of evil on a more worthy build. -Auron 16:06, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

Anyone can put a WELL tag on a build, right, so that includes admins. When an admin sees a build and thinks that build is trash, should he put a WELL tag on it and then delete it? Kinda useless if you ask me. And if an author wonders why it's deleted and the admin says because of WELL then everything is solved and everybody is happy. ɟoʇuɐʌʎʞɔıɹPanic srsbsns 16:09, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

Unless, however that build isn't in trial/testing (or was it just testing, I dunno) which means people aren't allowed to put a WELL tag on it and I suppose that also inclucdes admins. ɟoʇuɐʌʎʞɔıɹPanic srsbsns 16:10, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
typically the WELL tag can go on at anytime with a valid reason (though it's usually only something like "been submitted 50 trillion times and failed") but there's nothing to say you can't put a WELL tag on stubs....~PheNaxKian (T/c) Phenaxkian sig phoenix 16:15, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

Ok. So. Rapta should have added a WELL tag (even though I think we all know that the build would have been deleted/trashed in the end). That's true. However, there are a few things that people need to keep in mind. First of all, if a build concept is irreparable (i.e. improving it sufficiently would require either making it a dupe of an existing build or radically overhauling the concept) then the fact of deletion is immaterial because a reason for the deletion can be provided to the author after the fact. I believe that Rapta, based on his deletion summary, believed this to be the case. I was also going to point out that the addendum was always intended as a guideline, but I see that Armond has already done that for me. Questions relating to the efficacy of the addendum or the proper role of policies/guidelines and how they relate to sysops should be placed on the talk page of the appropriate policy (i.e. WELL or ADMIN).

That's mainly by tradition. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 16:28, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
See, theres the problem. Ricky was following the policy of WELL (says "builds should not be deleted as inferior while they are still stubs"). But, the admins still have the right to overturn policy. Whats really causing the problem is that users will follow policy and expect admins to do the same, while they dont have to. IMO, policy should be followed and not ignored unless there is a really good reason to do so. Not wanting to spend the 10 seconds to put a WELL tag on a build and delete 2 hours later is not a good reason and doesnt really improve the wiki. There needs to be some policy that explicitely says what grounds there are for an admin to ignore policy to remove further big debates like this. --- Monk-icon-Ressmonkey Ressmonkey (talk) 16:36, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
No, there doesn't. To be honest, if you want to talk about following policy, read PvX:ADMIN, which clearly outlines the autonomy of Sysops. It's not a question of "overturning policy," it's a question of literalism vs. spirit of the policy-ism, and we've made it very clear from the very beginning that we were gonna operate based on the spirit of the policy. The guideline (there's a reason it's included as an addendum and not as part of the official policy) states that unfinished builds should not be WELLed, which generally means stubs. And, if you could look at the builds which have been WELLed, I think you'd find that, almost without exception, they were all in Trial/Testing.

To be perfectly honest, Rapta hasn't violated anything. The policy on build deletion specifically states: "...upon review, if a build is shown to be inferior to another build, it may be tagged for immediate deletion due to violation of this policy. If such a build is found, the following code should be added to the top of the page: {{well|~~~~~|violates [[PvX:WELL]]}}". It was deleted for reason of violating PvX:WELL. And it was deleted immediately. Seeing as Rapta was the one deleting it, I can see why he wouldn't bother to edit and add a tag first. - PANIC! Panic sig4 sexiness! 17:44, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

Possible College Halp?

Not sure if you remember me so well (I'm sure you at least have a vague memory of that єяøהħ kid), but I figured I'd ask you, Auron, and DE for help. I'm not exactly sure why I chose you three, but you guys always seemed increadibly willing to help.

So, as I'm sure you are aware, scholarships are win at getting people free money for college. Leadership is a good quality to show and necessary in some scholarships. I've obviously been very inactive recently, but I was one of the people who helped clean up and set up a bit back during the early stages of the site. I was wondering if you could help a fella out and speak on my behalf if e-mailed by some scholarship money giving group about it. I don't want you to lie and pretend I help daily, but just reassuring them that I helped "clean-up" in the early stages while the site was still under construction would be very helpful. Thanks for any help you can offer. єяøהħ 02:17, 17 July 2008 (EDT)

Yeah, I remember you. Of course I will! -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 07:11, 17 July 2008 (EDT)
Sweet. I just need you to be a contact, so if you don't mind I'd like to use your administrative email as a contact for the organization. If you'd rather I not or if you'd rather I use a different email/way of contacting you just say so. I can't even start on this application until the 1st of August, so think about it until then.

Build:N/any IV Minion Bomber

Rapta deleted this build, I feel that it violates PvXwiki:Build Deletion (the bit about not deleting immedietly, and telling people why it is deleted). The build is similiar to the generic minion bomber, but from I can see there is a minion bomber with Splinter and Ancestors in the great section, when those two skills are in the originals variant section, thus that would be a reason to delete. The build I submitted has a different elite and has more utility (you don't need minions to damage). I was wondering if you could look over the deletion and give your input, since a few other have told me that it would be worth contacting some other admins. Thank you for your time.

Team_-_Paraway_Pressure (talk · rate)

I disagree with the restoration of a bunch of the ratings, as well as some of the new ratings. The Sword does, in fact, deal more damage/pressure and even spikes better than most Axe bars in this specific build. You can also never have too much Daze (which is also a nice utility, instead of Shock on an Axe bar). I've got some nice reasoning at User_talk:Rapta#Team_-_Paraway_Pressure_.28talk_.C2.B7_rate.29 and Build_talk:Team_-_Paraway_Pressure#For_those_who_think_Axes_deal_moar_domage. "We Shall Return!" was replaced by Godspeed to help with splitting/kiting (which is 93.3% maintainable on party members within Earshot) and a lot of the reasoning for the bad votes are wrong. I also updated the build in other ways (I've got DW on the Stunning Paragon's bar, near-"perma IAS + IMS fun", so Rapta's, and the copypasta votes should be removed/updated. Also, Motigon's were nerfed too hard to be viable, and the Orders Flagger provides more healing and damage (through Orders). Thank you for your time. =P ــмıкεнaшк 14:17, 4 August 2008 (EDT)

The sword does more because you're buffing it all to shit. Using an axe could probably have just as good results. I'm not gonna do the math.
Most of the votes were restored because I dislike Rapta knocking down the opinions of a bunch of the voters just because he disagrees. (At least, I think that's what I did on this build.)
You can have too much daze when a. nothing's meaningfully affected by it or b. it's maintained with overlap.
-- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 20:26, 4 August 2008 (EDT)
The Stunning Paragon is supposed to maintain Daze on two targets, while the two frontliners can use theirs opportunistically.
Buffing the swords to shit is the point of the build, which is the problem with the votes: their reasoning is centered on individual team members (they pick out the frontliners, which actually work extremely well with the team). The point of the Paragons is to take full advantage of the physical buffs (Dark Fury, OoP and SoH) in order to achieve one of, if not, the highest single target DPSs and fastest physical spike you'll see in PvP. Rapta didn't remove the votes because he disagreed with their opinions (although they were false, because they weren't looking at the big picture) but because they lacked reasoning overall. The only thing out of the lower ratings that made any sense to me was GoD's mention of splitting, but I changed the build accordingly (added nearly maintainable party-wide IMS).
You also don't have to do the Math, I already went through that along with some tests (as seen on the talk page).
ــмıкεнaшк 22:00, 4 August 2008 (EDT)
Tbh, though, that requires reading the math.
Honestly, get Rapta to remove the votes again if it matters to you. I'm not going to bitch.

MAC faggotry

delete interface "Local Area Network" or delete interface "Wireless Connection" might solve stuff with ipconfig /renewdns. tbh, I'm not sure, but I'll keep looking.

ipconfig/renew looked hopeful. The question is whether the router is smart enough to apply the old settings to the new MAC address. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 09:56, 5 August 2008 (EDT)

4srs. I think you just have to use install interface "Whatever You Deleted Previously". Maybe. I'm not sure how all that works.

+140 domage? More like 140 domage flat, as you don't have shit all adrenaline to use skills with. Honestly, nerf warrior damage, nerf all the defenses, make frenzyspacing actually fun again.

Regarding playing a build before rating it...

I don't wish to prolong any ...discussion... about it, but I wondered if you might comment on this particular note:

"Users are strongly discouraged from voting based solely on theorycrafting. Considerable game experience or knowledge of how a build works when played optimally and in realistic circumstances is preferred." in regards to "You're ignoring logic, and arrogant enough to insist that we try the build before we judge it.". Is it a reasonable expectation to expect that people try most builds before voting on them? I would like some clarification on this particular.- Greven 15:15, 19 August 2008 (EDT)

I'll be honest - that line was added because failures voted builds down for reasoning like "Faintheartedness and Price of Failure are awful synergy!". -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 15:33, 19 August 2008 (EDT)
