I <3 Our Wiki Folks

I wanted to give a personal thanks to everyone who helped with the move of our ArenaNet pages to the Feedback pages. My pages are working just great and I'm so grateful for all the hard work you guys did to make a smooth transition. I mean, I was posting again in 10 minutes. (Which is a good thing, as I get a little antsy if I can't wiki. :) )

All of you did a fabulous job! Merci beaucoup, gracias, and danke to Wynthyst, Poke (I think of Poke as "He of the Beneficial Bot(tm)"), Satanael, Aiiane, and Erasculio (coder extraordinaire!). If I forgot anyone, please let me know so I can make amends. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 00:11, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Splendid. Now get to work on reading it all >:) -- User Vanguard VanguardLogo.pnganguard 01:05, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
LOL! Gaile is support... and only needs to read it if it gives her pleasure :D -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 01:07, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Hot. (Might have wanted a different word choice). But understood :P-- User Vanguard VanguardLogo.pnganguard 01:12, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
You guys would be surprised what I read, on this wonderful wiki. So many things impact Support -- directly or indirectly -- and I really enjoy keeping up and helping out when I can. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 04:28, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Woot! Now we can suggest that friday should be Hawaiian shirt day at Anet and other silly things. Though if you take that seriously, I want pics! ^^ Katherinezoltin 05:34, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
HAHAHA! I am envisioning Izzy in a rainbow colored Hawaiian shirt with big flowers and palm trees on it.... -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 05:42, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Gaile should totally have a purple one with white flowers or something. Martain would probably look nice in one of those funny beach hats. ^^ Katherinezoltin 05:48, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm so there. I'll be sure to suggest that we accept that suggestion. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 07:00, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Is that Gorilla suit still kicking about the offices? >:] Frozenwind 01:37, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Mehbe. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 01:38, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Btw, how is PAX? Konig is annoyed that he can't go to PAX, along with me and all the others that have to get info from every source they can. Why do I have to live so far away?! >.>" Katherinezoltin 04:32, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Welcome to the New Page!

Remember the house rules: Please use best wiki practices, show courtesy to all, and get bonus points for an informative subject line. ;) (That really helps with finding topics here and in the archives.) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 19:36, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Ok, nice new page :D--Unendingfear User Unendingfear Crane.jpg 19:37, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Dun dun dun

I always used to get to your talk page through Typo 'Galie gray',sometimes even 'gray',and i noticed something,Your not at the top :O..is...a giant more important than our dear old gaile?User Neil2250 gailes outstaged.jpg--Neil2250User Neil2250 sig icon.jpg 22:21, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

seeing as search engines use relevance, not importance, most linked, or top hits, yes. ··· Danny Pew Pew 22:24, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
The thing is, those always link to the non-user pages, anyway, so it's really no big deal. I think if you type User:Gaile you'll get to me. I'll go check -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 19:06, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
Yep, works like a charm. (And from my page, you can get to all the Support-related pages, as well, so that's nice.) I know when I need to link to a staff member's talk pages, that's the system I use: User:(name). -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 19:09, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Is the wiki our worse enemy

A wiki user recently requested that all character names shall be deleted from her user page for security reason. What are your thoughts on this ? Is the security question really compatible with a wiki user page, or is there more than meet the eye ? Yseron - 90.14.230.236 21:11, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

I found your answer: "I think the chances of someone getting account credentials and a character name are very small, but I did make the recommendation months ago that people not expose their character names on fan forums or through other means. Again, I believe it's not a likely security concern, but the suggestion is out there. -- Gaile 18:55, 24 December 2009 (UTC)". Yseron - 90.14.230.236 21:21, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
I think it's a personal call, Yseron. I have my character names on my page. Many others do. Some who did, do. Some who did, now do not. I guess if I had to do it over again, I would not post my names. But I don't feel right removing them now and they're rather easy to guess, so I'm leaving it be. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 23:25, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
Wasn't it the combination of having the email address, password and char names connected? With the wiki, its not as easy to gather those 3 items together unless you know how to look, where as on most websites, you can obtain a list from the administrator. These bots look for fast, easily listed, you can highlight across means of information. For the most part, especially with anet employees listed here as well, I don't think the wiki is risky.--*Yasmin Parvaneh* User yasmin parvaneh sig.png 23:30, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
The problem is, there are so many chinese people in China....Pika Fan 01:27, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
I guess the guild policy should be updated. --Macros 01:59, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Question =

Emm im srry but im new to this posting stuff and im asking a question. How do u make ur own section to ask a question. Srry if ima invading someone elses ah 'space' as it were just wondering... Aditionally for future reference my names, Auzzie/Austin, whichever u prefer to type. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Austin1 (talk).

At the very top or each page, there's a little tab with a "+" to add a new section to the discussion. I already made a placeholder title for this one. Then use the [edit] link to the right of the headers to add to those topics. And before you ask Gaile a question, please read the stuff at the top of this page. Also, please consult GWW:SIGN, and you might find Help:Contents useful. User Rose Of Kali SIG.jpgRose Of Kali 10:24, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
Cheers,--Austin1 06:56, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Australia wishes everyone, especially those who like us, a very happy year.
Austin, if you click "edit" view, you'll be able to see how you make a headline (couple of equal signs on each side), how you indent (a colon for each space of indentation) and so forth. Don't worry about messing up, but I do appreciate that you want to know how to start a new section for a topic, because people do forget and I just found someone's March comment that he accidentally added to a January discussion. :) (Thanks for your helpful comments, Rose.) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 18:56, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Please Read This

This is my personal user page. It is not the Bugs page. It is not the Support Issues page. It is not where you put complaints about customer service or worries about a new exploit or discussion about the horrible things that happened to the brother of your best friend's cousin's roommate. :)

Please place the topics you wish to discuss in the appropriate section. Thank you. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 00:24, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

It's because you are always too nice to everyone. I recommend to stop it! InfestedHydralisk 01:35, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
Infested is right, but I'll just move crap out of the way. Also, might as well put in bold at the top of the page as well. →[ »Halogod User Halogod35 Sig.png (talk ]← 15:47, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
You can add something like this like on the admin notice board
       <div id="warningBox" class="noticeboardbox">
       <div>'''This is my personal user page. It is not the [[Feedback:Bug_reports| Bugs page]]!'''</div>
       </div>  
       
to make it more noticeable. --Lania ElderfireUser Lania Elderfire pinkribbon.jpg 16:00, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I'm pretty sure it'll be ok and I won't need to add formal content. (Is that formatted as you intended it, Lania? It looks kind of odd on the page.) Anyway, I'm working on a huge (Huuuuuuuge) project, but I'll try to move things to the Support Issues page when I get a chance. Thanks. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 21:11, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
I had some problems fitting that code within the pre commands so it's formatted funny but copy and pasting that code anywhere in the talk page makes it show up. oh a huuuuuge project eh? can't wait to see the end product!--Lania ElderfireUser Lania Elderfire pinkribbon.jpg 21:26, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
Ummmmm... I think you saw the project to which I referred yesterday evening. ;) ;) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 02:46, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

GW2 feedback =

Hi Gaile,

I've been reading the various GW2 articles on the GW2 website and I've had some thoughts (both good and bad) and concerns (generally bad, but I suppose that's par for the course) about some of the things I've read. I was wondering if you could suggest to me a place where I could post said feedback (I figure that's easier than tracking down someone on vent). Thanks! -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 03:29, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Seriously? 0/10. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 04:24, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, Felix, but I kinda meant a place where feedback had a chance to be noticed - like someone's talk page. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 05:21, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
Legality issues, doesn't exist. You know this. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 05:37, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
All GW sites have a chance to be noticed. 0% is a chance, after all. Just remember that 'suggestions' are not the same as 'requests'. MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 12:06, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
Unless you get hired by Anet to be part of the design process, everyone gets should get an equal voice, no matter the fan site. --Lania ElderfireUser Lania Elderfire pinkribbon.jpg 14:55, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
I agree with Felix, 0/10. Morphy 10:45, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
I can't offer any additional ideas about suggestions other than those already mentioned. We have Wiki options -- please do feel free to use them. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 04:11, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
