Grats admin :) -Auron 05:27, 20 April 2007 (CEST)
Still not sure why you aren't an Admin yet. I need help getting the policies up and running. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 05:29, 20 April 2007 (CEST)

Hey Uber build guru ! Lania Elderfire 05:27, 19 April 2007 (CEST)

For anyone who can appreciate a Simpson's reference: Wherever there are builds, cosmic forces shall draw me near. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 05:30, 19 April 2007 (CEST)

Insert much rawr here. Ichigo724 05:31, 19 April 2007 (CEST)

Go builds! Lania Elderfire 05:50, 19 April 2007 (CEST)

Feel free to add evrething about Policy to GuildWiki:Privacy_policy . Dont be afraid of editing pages like Comminity and Privacy, we are in beta testing :) gcardinal 06:02, 19 April 2007 (CEST)

Yup. We have entered my realm of expertise, and I plan to take full advantage of the opportunity to shape policy. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 06:04, 19 April 2007 (CEST)


Also in addition I think we need something to separate this from Guildwiki. Something like "we are not Guildwiki" and "we are not wikipedia" or even "we are not a wiki" since if there are a lot of original builds it is not a documentation of observation but a lot of opinion and "professional" opinion. I dunno, just bouncing ideas around. Lania Elderfire 06:52, 19 April 2007 (CEST)

I agree, a lot of people thought that one of the major issues with the GuildWiki build system was that there were too many opinions. We are going to be all about opinions, so it makes good sense to have something to distinguish ourselves. On the other hand, we might want to create a second section which is for NOB type stuff like an Original Builds page and a Proven Builds page just as we have seperate sections (and criteria) for PvE and PvP. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 06:57, 19 April 2007 (CEST)
To be honest, I think in order to be effective, we NEED that split. We want to be able to both write original and unoriginal content, but I think we need to differentiate so that we can remain a good reference while also allowing for originality. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 07:00, 19 April 2007 (CEST)
Well sure it is one way to go. but I think for new users it will be hard to understand what is original and what is proven build. Maybe rating on how Good they are would be better?.. gcardinal 07:40, 19 April 2007 (CEST)
Possibly. However, when I get home tonight, I am going to try to create a page regarding a possible Original vs. Sucessful Split much like the PvE vs. PvP Split idea. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 21:44, 19 April 2007 (CEST)
I'm open-minded to it, but not sold on this idea yet. The reason why Non-original builds make sense on the other wiki is that they are going to be integrated with the other documentation aspects of the site. With this site not having any documentation, it doesn't seem as advantageous to split out certain builds. Not to mention its a bit of a fine line between non-original and original in some cases. Consider some monk builds like HB or Shield of Regeneration. I posted a SoR build that was an original creation, but because the skill choices were pretty logical it is basically a pretty standard build. -- BrianG 04:41, 20 April 2007 (CEST)


Just saying hi. Hi. :) --Rickyvantof 16:19, 19 April 2007 (CEST)

Woot hey there! AV 15:25, 21 April 2007 (CEST)

Hey, thanks for welcoming me DE. Amantis 22:44, 12 May 2007 (CEST)


Are we using similar policies to Gw Wiki untill we create our own? Solus SolusSig.jpg 14:06, 20 April 2007 (CEST)

To some extent. Anything simple, stuff like 1RV and NPA were copied and made official by me. Stuff like BUILDS and VETTING will be decided by the community because we currently have no policy. However, most of the stuff is being copied from GuildWiki because most of it is applicable. Only a few select ones may have to be overhauled in a major way. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 01:21, 21 April 2007 (CEST)


Do you need this any more? -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 18:33, 24 April 2007 (CEST)

Not on this site I don't. I will delete it. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 00:25, 25 April 2007 (CEST)

I changed the policy a bit. I might be trying too hard with it though. Tell me if you still think its a dud. I wasn't finished writing it though, when you made that comment. Ni 01:25, 25 April 2007 (CEST)

Policy Review

Hey, as requested I looked over all the policies that have already been implemented. No complaints there. I've also started reviewing proposed policies and have left some comments. Next up I'll be leaving some suggestions on the vetting policy and then possibly working on improving the community portal. Let me know if you have suggestions for that page. -- BrianG 02:30, 25 April 2007 (CEST)

Also do you mind if I start chipping away at creating all the category pages, because at the current state, you can't look them up. Ni sig.JPG Ni 02:30, 25 April 2007 (CEST)
Go for it. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 04:05, 25 April 2007 (CEST)
Meh, I did like half. I g2g now though. Ill see if I can do the rest tommorow. Ni sig.JPG Ni 04:23, 25 April 2007 (CEST)
Alright, nice work. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 04:23, 25 April 2007 (CEST)

Wow - that was a surprise

Thanks for the vote of confidence, I was surprised to see my name listed on your user page under "People Who Would Make Good Administrators". While I think going for the trifecta of being admin on GW, GWW, and PW is an interesting concept - I doubt it's a good idea. A big part of the problem is the general opinion of the GW admin team among the community that supports builds within wikis - I simply doubt that an RFA for me would gain much support; afterall, I'm on record as saying that builds within wikis are unavoidably problematic. If some good MediaWiki extensions can be created to resolve those shortcomings (which Gcardinal seems intent on developing), then many of my concerns can conceivably be overcome - I'm hoping that happens here! But that won't undo my initial statements in many people's minds. My other concern is that I'm simply too swamped in real-life lately (two big projects at work, shopping for an engagement ring, etc) so I'm already spread pretty thin as it stands. I'm more than happy to make suggestions and give my opinions when I have time - but I doubt that I would have the bandwidth to do much more.

But, thanks again for the vote of confidence! It's much appreciated! --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 04:32, 26 April 2007 (CEST)


On the templates im listing to delete, you need to get rid of the template, AND the page. Currently you are just getting rid of the page, but the template remains. Ni sig.JPGNi 04:23, 27 April 2007 (CEST)

Percentage Favored Voting

It's still just a proposal - why did you move it to the current policy part of the page? -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 07:16, 27 April 2007 (CEST)

Because it had enough Admin votes. It wasn't just a proposal. Cardinal is the one who moved it back to a proposal, don't look at me. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 14:17, 27 April 2007 (CEST)

From the Main Page...

Thanks. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 05:05, 29 April 2007 (CEST)

Ahh, so this is where you went ;p

Congrats on admin, now how is the vetting process looking? Any explanation on how it works, or if it even exists yet O.o...? Readem 01:02, 2 May 2007 (CEST)

We don't have an official policy as of yet. You can check out PW:POLICY which has links to a couple of proposals... and the one submitted by Sefre (which is really a compilation of the efforts of a bunch of users) has garnered the most support so far. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 01:26, 2 May 2007 (CEST)


How do you get your sig to work? I can't use my custom one... --Frvwfr2 13:51, 2 May 2007 (CEST)

Nevermind --Frvwfr2 14:10, 2 May 2007 (CEST)
Actually, I'm curious - it's getting kind of annoying to type {{:User:Armond/Signature}} on every page I reply on. >.> -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 19:05, 2 May 2007 (CEST)
Can't just subst? -Auron 20:56, 2 May 2007 (CEST)
Well, firstly, that would require more typing ({{subst:User:Armond/Signature}}), which adds up quickly when making a lot of replies, and secondly, this way I can just view the "whatlinkshere" for my signature page and it'll tell me all the places I've put replies in. Could be useful someday. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 21:02, 2 May 2007 (CEST)
Put it in your signature box, and check Raw Signatures. Duh :P -Auron 21:17, 2 May 2007 (CEST)
Ok. That's a good idea. One question - where is this "signature box"? All I have is an option for raw signatures. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 21:21, 2 May 2007 (CEST)
"Nickname:" -Auron 21:23, 2 May 2007 (CEST)
On GWiki, I have {{SUBST:User:Auron of Neon/Sig}} in my nickname box. -Auron 21:25, 2 May 2007 (CEST)
Neato! Thanks! -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image.png{{sysop}} 21:28, 2 May 2007 (CEST)
Thank you for that tip. I've removed the comment (sort of) to make it harder for vandals to find, and will act on it. On second thought, my sig isn't on enough pages to do that. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image.png{{sysop}} 22:05, 2 May 2007 (CEST)
Is my name in my sig showing up orange? If not how do I make it so (I put in the same color tags as on guild wiki and the RGB code)? I think I have got it orange but when it is clicked on it goes purple rather than staying orange. Cheers. — Hyperion` // talk 18:58, 10 May 2007 (CEST)
If you know HTML, use it and mess with the Alink and Vlink values. The problem is that once you click on the link, it will always stay the selected Vlink value - default to purple. Also, color=:"orange" doesn't seem to work here, at least not on my computer. I see it as blue. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image.png{{sysop}} 22:11, 10 May 2007 (CEST)
Sneh...I have no clue how to do it but I'll get over it being blue. :) — Hyperion` // talk 05:08, 12 May 2007 (CEST)

Mind Taking a look at this?

Hey Defiant, your one of the old hats around here. Would you mind taking a look at my proposed PvXWiki:Premade Builds Policy and give any sugestions on how to improve it. I feel this section would help a lot of people out and this site as a whole. Thanks for you time Shireen 22:43, 5 May 2007 (CEST)

Hmm lol

Its 6pm my time and still the 7th, is this being based off of a Euro time zone? Readem (talk*contribs) 02:15, 8 May 2007 (CEST)

Maybe, I believe Cardinal is in... Norway... I think... so it would make sense. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 04:01, 8 May 2007 (CEST)
It seems the wiki timezone is set as UTC, which is the default for MediaWiki, IIRC; GC simply hasn't changed it, I'm guessing. And GC is Russian, not Norwegian. --Dirigible 04:32, 8 May 2007 (CEST)
I know that he is originally Russian, but I don't think he is currently living there. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 04:45, 8 May 2007 (CEST)
Wouldn't it make more sense to just have the timezone set to GMT? That way any conversion is much simpler. Napalm Flame 11:48, 8 May 2007 (CEST)
UTC and GMT are the same... --Dirigible 14:36, 8 May 2007 (CEST)

Signature and strikethrough

Could you please explain to me how to customise my signature and strikethrough invalid information please? thanks in advance, and could you leave the info on my talkpage please? Napalm Flame 20:50, 11 May 2007 (CEST)

I can tell you strike through is < s > this will be crossed < /s > closes teh strikethrought and this will no longer be; cept take the spaces out from tween the <>'s and the s or /sEronth 20:55, 11 May 2007 (CEST)
To change your signature, the best thing you can do is create User:Napalm Flame/Signature. Put in there exactly what you want your signature to be, without the ~~~~~. Then, go to "my preferences", and in the box labeled "nickname", put in {{subst:User:Napalm Flame/Signature}}. Do not forget the subst!
As for striking out things, use the <s> and </s> tags. The first begins the strikethrough, the second ends it. Everything between the two will be struck out. Thus,

Rate-a-build blah blah blah
<s>#dis bild is teh suxorz-- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image.png{{sysop}} 22:37, 11 May 2007 (CEST)</s>

Sorry Krowman, he was jk. Readem (talk*pvxcontribs) 04:26, 14 May 2007 (CEST)

Where did it go O.o?

What happened to the awesome totally wicked pwnage counter thingy go? You know, the one at the bottom of the page? And why did you get rid of the old random page (The one that brought you only to user Talk pages)? They were awesome *begins to pout*. Readem (talk*pvxcontribs) 04:28, 14 May 2007 (CEST)

Archived builds

Quick question: when we brought over GWiki's archived builds, did we leave some behind? There are at least two that I remember, and have stored on my hard drive, that we don't have here anymore. They were the N/Me Blacklight and the N/Mo Hex Support; there could be more that I haven't noticed yet. Have they been deleted or something? - Kowal.jpg Krowman (talkcontribs) 08:21, 14 May 2007 (CEST)

Yeh, the Falling Shocker and the Shovesin are missing too, amongst others. - Kowal.jpg Krowman (talkcontribs) 08:25, 14 May 2007 (CEST)
I am not sure to be honest, you would have to ask Cardinal. DE Sig Test 2.jpg *Defiant Elements* +talk 17:17, 14 May 2007 (CEST)
I deleted them after seeing Cardinal's request to delete the archived builds. If you'd like, I can go undelete them, as this isn't the first time I've seen people complain. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image.png{{sysop}} 07:35, 15 May 2007 (CEST)


Hey Element Thanks for giving me advice on cleaning up my [Me/N Wither Degen mesmer] build.. since it is my first build i posted on This site. And i learned pretty quickly...
