User talk:The Lone Ice Lion/Archive 1
- You're doing it now, but if you're looking for chat/conversations, go to a fansite, this is a wiki for documenting the game. If you have comments about articles or want to help document the game, you're going to want to learn about signing your comments, and, in general, what to do and how to do it. -- FreedomBound 00:56, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Hello???--The Lone Ice Lion 01:12, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
- Wiki doesn't really lend itself to instant responses, so, like I said, if you're looking for chats, go in-game, or to a fansite. To contact other users, you visit their talk pages, like you wrote on mine. Nice job signing, by the way! -- FreedomBound 01:17, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

i upload it but it doesnt go to my page.--The Lone Ice Lion 01:59, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
- You uploaded it wrong. Please read the image policy and user policy linked above before uploading anymore images. I have moved your image and placed it on your userpage. Drogo Boffin 02:05, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
- You don't need to re-upload anything that's already on here, you can just link it and re-size it. — PmaN 02:23, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Can you tell me how to make spaces without doin all ||| stuff???--The Lone Ice Lion 00:09, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
Hi, I noticed someone already said it above, but I'll put it in a new section and elaborate, so it's clearer.
If you want to use an image that's already uploaded on the wiki, simply use the format
[[File:Arenanet-logo-400-transparentbg.png]] on the page you want the image to be displayed. You don't need to upload it again or edit the file page. Help:Editing is probably a must-read if you're new to editing a wiki - it's very different to other types of websites, but not hard to learn.
Using the "show preview" button shows you how the page looks before you save it, so you should use that for testing and previewing edits.
Again i keep forgeting to do this things.--The Lone Ice Lion 00:24, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Ok but does it just keep gettin longer and longer?--The Lone Ice Lion 00:37, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
- It's supposed to. You can move everything to an archive though. –alistic 00:38, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
How do i do that?--The Lone Ice Lion 00:40, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
- Just copy everything on this page to the link I gave you (: –alistic 00:43, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
How do i get the words off of this page?--The Lone Ice Lion 00:46, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
Archiving a talk page cleans up and shortens an excessively long talk page and provides easily accessible references for past discussions. Archives can be added to any talk pages on Guild Wars Wiki. This help article will explain how to archive and offer some tips on what to avoid.
When to archive
A talk page should be archived when it is generally too large or cluttered for comments to be easily added and read. It is recommended that you leave active discussions on the talk page and only archive the stale ones.
How do I archive a talk page?
There are two simple ways in which a talk page can be archived:
The new archive page should be suitably named and in the correct namespace. For example, User talk:Example/Archive X (archive for User:Example's talk page) or Talk:Article/Archive X (archive for article named "Article"), where X can either be a numerical count or date.
See Help:Editing on how to create or move a page.
Please read and understand the talk page archiving guidelines. To reiterate the important points:
