template to be retired Edit


Your user page is protected, so I couldn't fix this. Can you change the use of User:Barek/Section header to instead use template:Section header? I had originally created the template in my namespace - but it appears that the original version was ported over from GuildWiki (possibly from the database dump).

I've tagged the duplicate one from my user space for deletion at this point. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 05:23, 30 May 2007 (CEST)

Hey Barek! I updated my page, thanks for the warning. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 05:30, 30 May 2007 (CEST)
No problem. But I have an off-topic quick question - does this wiki have a policy on uploading images of characters (or a policy on naming those images)? I wanted to add that to my user page - but I haven't been watching this sites policies as quickly as the other two, so I wasn;t sure if I could. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 05:34, 30 May 2007 (CEST)
Okay, after glancing over PvXwiki:Policy and PvXwiki:Image use policy, it appears that limited use is acceptable, so I'll upload some. If I'm mistaken and they're not allowed, or if there's a file naming policy that I missed, let me know! --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 05:43, 30 May 2007 (CEST)

Any help, regarding these three projects would be greatly appreciated.

  • PvX:NoBias: A policy that states newly written Builds should be unbiased, and create Builds that are not limited by the Author in any way.
  • IW Guide: A Guide describing the basic ideas and concepts of an IW Mesmer.
  • Mass Builds Clean-up: (IMPORTANT) A check list of sorts, for reviewing the legitimacy of Tested Builds.

Contests Edit

I only just now noticed your contests listed on your user page. This site seems pretty dead (no offense - I'm comparing it to other GW wiki's) with no options to post builds (no policy yet) so I am suggesting that you post a section for user contests on the main page. I would think it should keep some interest going as I am looking to play around on this site myself but haven't really found much that caught my interest until I saw the contests on user pages being mentioned. Just my thoughts. --VallenIconwhitesmall Vallen Frostweaver 13:32, 5 June 2007 (CEST)

Can't We All Get Along Edit

I wrote something, and I hope you will read. CWAGA is a project started by me, and maintained by me today. Please share. Bluemilkman 19:14, 6 June 2007 (CEST)

I am going to have to ask, did you read any of that? Because sometimes, I don't think that some people just think. I don't know, maybe I'm just coming into the middle of something I don't understand. Bluemilkman 07:33, 8 June 2007 (CEST)

No, I read it, just didn't have a comment. Honestly, it's a nice message to send, but, I doubt it is actually going to effect people's actions one way or the other. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 07:38, 8 June 2007 (CEST)

OK, let's try this again. There's a user part in there, but I wanted you to focus on the admin part. Bluemilkman 07:52, 8 June 2007 (CEST)

The Admins are but human. We have feelings and opinions on matters, the same as any other average user. For no reason, should we not stand-up for what we believe in. Saying that we should, or even are able to, is simply ridiculous. Though CWAGA has an appealing outer-surface, in all reality it is just not practical. Readem (talk*pvxcontribs) 08:10, 8 June 2007 (CEST)

I stand by my original answer, Admins will do as their will dictates. Whether or not I reread my comments will not be effected by that page. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 08:17, 8 June 2007 (CEST)

If you haven't read the other page, I'll say again that I'm sorry. Schools over, and I think I'm more stressed out than I was before. But anyway, CWAGA needs revamped, big time. I would like some help. If you could, that would be amazing. I want what you want, to make this wiki the best that it can be. To do that, I know we need to work together. Heck, my comments last night (or maybe it was already this morning, idk) were pretty much against everything that I had written in there. So yea, I'm sorry about that.

A Question Edit

According to Gaile News, the incoming update will prevent armor bonuses from skills from stacking past +25. Should I go tag farming builds that use multiple armor bonuses for deletion, put a message on the talk page, or what? - Skakid9090 00:45, 13 June 2007 (EDT)

Damn... that's a pain since there are probably any number of builds that qualify. Ok, I think the best option would be to add something like {{Notice|The recent changes to the skill [[gw:Deadly Paradox|Deadly Paradox]] bring this build's viability into question. Please discuss on this article's [[Build talk:{{PAGENAME}}|talk page.]]}} to pages you find that qualify. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 00:50, 13 June 2007 (EDT)

If you're on a "diff" page, you have an option labeled "Undo" which automatically reverts a single edit. So, for example, if you find an instance of vandalism, you simply click "Undo" and it will revert whatever the last edit made was. When you use the "Undo" function, it automatically gives the message "(Undo revision 167005 by Special:Contributions/Paintballfreak13 (User talk:Paintballfreak13)" or something similar.

Well, I moved it without even looking at the build. All I really needed to know was that it was in a namespace where it didn't belong.

I'm not sure what exactly you mean. If you want a build's concept to be discussed, but you don't want it to be voted upon, it should probably be in the Trial section. But, that's no guarantee that it will get the feedback you want. There's no method beyond simply putting it out there.

I think most of those are just his posts on talk pages, his ratings, and his edits (links in history pages). Tho I am quite surprised to see a user page in the top 3 most linked to pages, bu twith this being a builds wiki not that surprised...the navigation through policy is a nightmare rly is.

Soqed hozi 22:07, 17 July 2007 (CEST)
Popularity: the signature in each post on a talk page creates a wiki link, history pages don't. Thus links are not a measure of popularity. (Might still be that DE is the most popular...)
Policies: There is a link Policy List on the main page. In the blue box at the bottom, last entry in the first section.
Navigation in general: we are still working on the documentation of the wiki. Please be patient, there is a lot to do and not too many people interested in helping. – HHHIPPOsysop› 22:27, 17 July 2007 (CEST)

Well, in principle the page for that is the Community Portal and its talk page. But that's not very well organized either atm.

Blank of the Day/Week Edit

It seems like a fun project. I was thinking of doing a Mr.T Joke of the Week thing. Does this interfere with copyrights? If not, can I do it? I think I'm going to go experiment with the template (by making my own Template:User:Belgianbronco/Mr.T Joke of the Day, of course) =]. BelgianbroncoBelgianbroncoMesmerSig

Alright, can you tell me if I did it right? Template:User:Belgianbronco/Mr T Joke of the Day
Looks fine as far as I can tell. I added the proper category tags, but; aside from that, the way it'll work is that the number in the left column corresponds to a day of the month, and when it's that day, the corresponding joke in the right column will be displayed. (Just making sure you understand the template.) So just update it once a month or so and you'll be fine. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 05:19, 4 August 2007 (CEST)
Oh, and by the way, Chuck Norris > Mr. T DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 05:19, 4 August 2007 (CEST)
Hmmm... appears to be a discrepancy. Your template Header says "of the Day," and you provide enough jokes (if you understand the coding) for a joke a day, but, each actual joke begins with "The Mr. T joke of the week." If you want it weekly (which you seem to since you have it set to CURRENTWEEK) you should only have 4-5 numbers rather than 31, which you would use for each day of the month. Or, if you actually do want it daily, you need to be using CURRENTDAY. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 05:32, 4 August 2007 (CEST)
One last thing. Since all of the "__ of the Days" have a different header color, you might consider changing the color as well. DE Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 05:45, 4 August 2007 (CEST)

AoD Build Edit

I don't quite understand the purpose of this build. Did you want to create a build for the whole Southern Shiverpeaks (Beacon's -> THK) based on Dwayna? Or is it just for the Droknar's Forge run? I developed a Dwayna build for Copper-Iron, Dwayna's Steel which makes extensive use of the hex-removing, and mass-healing Avatar by spamming stances. The distinct purpose of a build is very important, as your AoD runner won't work for the whole SS the way it is now. ~ Luobailong (Contact · Contributions) 20:46, 23 May 2007 (CEST)

Just for the record, that build was originally going to be a GvG flagrunner. Somehow its purpose got lost. ;_; I wanted to see Ben pull off a flagger... -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 22:18, 23 May 2007 (CEST)
As to where it was supposed to run, I had Droknar's Forge in mind when I created the build, but, I really don't know what it would be best suited for since as I have said, I haven't done the SS run in a while, and, I haven't yet tested the build.

In order to make it work for Droks you need to alter it a bit, in my opinion:

  1. Add a complete running sequence consisting of stances, so that you heal yourself with Dwayna and at the same time remove hexes while running. 3 stances would be optimal for Dwayna.
  2. Drop the Condition remover as it is not required for Droks.
  3. Decide whether /A wouldn't be better than /Mo for Droks. ~ Luobailong (Contact · Contributions) 11:06, 24 May 2007 (CEST)

PvXwiki:Editing_guide Edit

I'm not an expert, but I believe this page violated copyright. I assume you copied it directly from GuildWiki, so I extracted the authors from their page and added it to ours' talk page.

After that, I suggest we move the page to Help:Editing, since this is where the 'Editing Help' on edit pages points to. --Hhhippo 19:06, 24 May 2007 (CEST)

Update: Thinking about it, I think that Help:Formatting would be the right name for this page. Someone would have to change the link on the edit form then.

Defying Elements Edit

Curiosity has gotten the better of me: Which elements do you defy? Or are only elements of you defiant? Do Elementalists or Dervishes deify elements more? (Four elements as opposed to two prayerful elements.) -- Dashface User Dashface 02:48, 28 May 2007 (CEST)

Defiant Elements was originally supposed to refer to factional elements which were defiant. Like rebels who are an element defying the government or whatever. It was the name I gave my PvP Warrior and then when I realized just how much I hated playing as a Warrior, I gave it to my PvE Dervish. But, to answer your question, I guess the closest would be that I am the Defiant Elements (or at least that was what the name was supposed to symbolize).
