Moving in

Looks like you're moving in :) -Auron 17:33, 21 April 2007 (CEST)

Just setting up camp. I still think that a wiki is inherently problemtic for any type of build vetting system ... my dream is still for a developer to create a custom web-application for builds that would have true ownership of build articles; structured templates to improve consistency and improve search-ability; and most importantly a vote system where each person receives a limited number of "vote points" per week to use for voting up/down on builds - but the points are weighted so that those who previously submitted builds that received higher ratings in the past get more points to spread around each week and those with poorly rated builds get fewer points to use (using the logic that those who have higher rated builds are more qualified to have knowledge in build quality when they vote).
But, that's still just a dream ... so ... I've helped with other elements of the builds section on GW before, and I'm more than happy to continue helping out once in a while on here too on some non-vetting related projects when I'm able. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 18:06, 21 April 2007 (CEST)

The little image thingy

You know the image that shows up in the URL bar (the crimson carapace shield for GWW, and the "gw" icon for GWiki)? How do we set that here? -Auron 19:13, 22 April 2007 (CEST)

If you have server access, then take a look at's information on setting the favicon. If you don't have server access, then User:Gcardinal should be able to set the URL. They also have links to information on other configuration settings available. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 19:20, 22 April 2007 (CEST)
Don't help him, Barek! He ragequit from my guild! -- 19:23, 22 April 2007 (CEST)
I smell dirigible in the air... -Auron 19:26, 22 April 2007 (CEST)
You stole my ectos and ran! Wtfffff. Give back, pls. -- 19:28, 22 April 2007 (CEST)
Why am I hijacking a perfectly mature conversation like this... Must be the sun or something... Sorry, guys. *crawls back under the rock* -- 19:35, 22 April 2007 (CEST)

People make me laugh today

Gotta love the delete tags on Untested farming build:D/E Kinetic Dervish. ^_^ -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 23:05, 11 May 2007 (CEST)

lol - I'll do better next time - was rushed this morning. :-) --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 01:06, 12 May 2007 (CEST)

Glad you liked the delete tags on my build. It would be great if I didn't have to look all over the place for how/where to submit a build. That would be the whole reason why I thought it was the way it was considering it was the first time I've ever created/submitted anything on here. ---Spartan

Um... bottom box on the MAIN PAGE is entitled "Writing Your Own Builds" and contains all of the useful links to policies and general guides regarding how to write a build. I repeat, that is on the MAIN PAGE. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 23:28, 17 May 2007 (CEST)

Thanks for fixing

I tried to fix the stupid edit things that were going on, and miserably failed. I think that we should make it more clear that people are NOT supposed to make their builds on the style and formatting page. ~~ Napalm Flame Napalm Flame Sig Image 17:56, 13 May 2007 (CEST)

I agree about making it more visible ... I added the template:Dontaddbuildshere to the page, so that it'll be visible once it gets moved back. I also think the page should be re-written to make it more obvious that it's a guide, and/or protected by admins so that changes need to be submitted via an editcopy page, same as the main page. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 17:59, 13 May 2007 (CEST)
Great idea, I really hate it when this stuff happens, I hate failing =[ ~~ Napalm Flame Napalm Flame Sig Image 18:08, 13 May 2007 (CEST)
I just did some cleanup to the page, I'm hoping that it will make it even more clear to new users not to create builds directly on that page. I'm hoping an admin arrives soon to move it back to its correct name. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 18:26, 13 May 2007 (CEST)
Ugh, how many times has that page been RV'd? I think I did two myself... - Kowal Krowman (talkcontribs) 20:46, 13 May 2007 (CEST)
*Slams the page with fist o' doom* Fixed. I'm actually tempted to protect that page. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 23:25, 13 May 2007 (CEST)
In general, I'm against the widespread protecting of a large number of pages ... but in this case, the repeated problems on the page justified it, at least for now. I know that Wikipedia usuaully uses short term (a month or so) page protections, then re-opens them. That could be attempted here. I'm hoping that the recent modifications to the page would make it less likely that the page would be accidentally changed in the future. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 03:15, 15 May 2007 (CEST)
I know. It's tempting though. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 08:21, 15 May 2007 (CEST)

Opinion please

I'm in the middle of a small debate, and I'd like your opinion. Please pitch in on Build talk:Invincimonk Guide. Thanks! -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 20:01, 15 May 2007 (CEST)

Done - comment added to that page. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 06:27, 16 May 2007 (CEST)


I'm deleting the Guild Wars page. If you still want the link on your user page, you can use the inter-wiki link shown here, though I'm sure you have got it figured out yourself: [[gw:Guild Wars|Guild Wars]]. Btw, thanks for the slight change to my user page. Cheers! - Kowal Krowman {{sysop}} 19:23, 11 June 2007 (EDT)

Template Question

Hi, I'm not sure whether you check this page frequently, but I'm in no hurry for an answer. My question is this, I've been playing around with a Word of the Day template that has a standardized structure, but requires input of a word, as well as that word's pronunciation, part of speech, and definition. Is there any way that I could have a preset list of instances that satisfy these variables such that it would generate a new Word of the Day from the list provided? I know ways to do that in Java, etc. but I don't have a ton of experience with MediaWiki code, and you seem to understand it (at least better that I do). If you know a way, or if you don't think it's possible, I'd like to know either way. Thanks in advance. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 19:06, 13 June 2007 (EDT)
