Bored

Much to my dismay, I searched 'bored' on GWW and unfortunately, no page came up :( I had the idea about making a page about things to do in Guild Wars when bored, such as the Black Moa Chick scavenger hunt, or other events/quests/cool things not normally completed when just playing through the game. The problem is however I don't know how to do it and I just wanted to suggest it to get feedback for it. So, any comments?? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 75.173.243.171 (talk).

Well it's not really in the encyclopediatic style (yes, I know encyclopediatic isn't a word). So I don't think it really fits here... You could make a thread about it on GWG or some other GW fan site. User MadSkillz1o1 sig2.PNG MadSkillz1o1 15:11, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
I think it's a good idea (I know lots of long-time veterans who have still missed a few interesting in-game projects). It could fit in Category:Guides. N00bs are interested in "getting started" guides; veterans might be interested in "things to do in Tyria after you win" (or something along those lines). My recommendation:
  • Create an example in your user space (you need an account here to do it), e.g. User:75.173.243.171/Bored.
  • When you think it's ready for prime time, put in a request for feedback (perhaps on the community portal?).
  • If there's enuf ppls who like the idea, one of the wiki's frequent contributors will help find a place for it.
Good luck.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 23:08, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

I'd like to see a page like this. Right now all my warr has to do (besides titles) is the black moa chick scavenger hunt, UW (which is now almost impossible to do without a team build) urgoz (again need an actual team of 12 ppl), Sorrow's Furnace, DoA (again need a team build), the titan quests, and other quests. I'd like to know if there's anything else in PvE I could do that I missed and other people have found. Daeheru 10:00, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
"Encyclopediatic" should totally be a new word.71.179.33.192 00:16, 6 July 2010 (UTC)
It is a word! :O, well I know alot of people that use it anyway :P 84.13.89.65 20:46, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
The word is encyclopedic - of, relating to, or characteristic of an encyclopedia.Hrafn 15:43, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

One time, I threw a rock at a beehive. The bees' response was less than inviting or forgiving; seeing as the bees were rather unkind, you can't really blame me for throwing the rock in the first place, can you? — Raine Valen User Raine R.gif 20:39, 15 Aug 2010 (UTC)

I always wonder how this would seem a senseful use of one's time. Sure, I get that some people don't like a certain wiki/game/lifestyle/etc, and think it a waste of time. But this always seems like a waste of time to the second degree to me... By the very act of vandalising, people show they care, in a way. It always confuses me. 94.209.65.245 08:50, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Guys. Wtf. Firstly, don't feed the troll. Second, don't revert war with the troll (it's not against policy since it is vandalism, but it just makes a huge mess). Third, there are many ways to contact sysops - the admin noticeboard, the #gww irc channel, or sysops' MSN if you have it. Once you have reported the issue, just hang out and wait for a response. After the first couple of reverts ya'll should have just chilled out and waited for him to get banned. 20+ image reverts is just nuts. -Auron 09:36, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Cell Phones

Y'know, it's a shame someone can't write an app to see this page on a cell phone. If you try to look it up currently the page is huge with lots of scrolling. D: Especially if you try to reply to talk pages. xD 67.77.74.216 02:26, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

I only know about US carriers, and since I'm too lazy to trace your IP, I'll just assume you're from the US. Sprint only charges $10/mo extra to get access to their 4G network (though only on an Evo or an Epic), which runs from ~450 kbps to ~2500 kbps - certainly fast enough to load wiki pages consistently. T-Mobile's HSPA+ network has comparable (better, tbh) speeds at no extra charge, though you'll probably end up with another $10/mo on your bill because their flat rates are higher. T-Mobile also has the advantage of not requiring you to buy an expensive phone to get 4G speeds. We're not going to get into AT&T, since their plans are terrible and expensive and the iPhone has ruined their network stability, or Verison, since they charge more than Sprint for pretty much exactly the same end result (possibly worse; I don't know what they're doing about a 4G network, but I'm pretty sure it's not up to par with Sprint's). If you're using a 3G phone, yeah, you're looking at longer loading times compared to DSL (my personal baseline for wiki pages), but realistically, if you're still using old technology, you should expect worse results anyway. If you're eligible for an upgrade and/or are out of contract, walk into a third party vendor store (RadioShack, Best Buy, etc) and ask to compare things like data coverage, rate charges, and phone hardware between various carriers. You'll make someone very happy for the commission. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 05:58, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure he just meant it didn't fit conveniently on a cell phone's screen. I don't see us reformatting the wiki for cell phones any time soon though. Misery 09:05, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
No, but someone could write an app (for Android, iPhone, whatever) that would optimize the display of wikis, along the lines of Wikipanion (a Wikipedia reader for iPhone) which works faster and looks better than using Safari to visit the website. Wikipanion's initial 3G load time is slower than browsing from my computer, but it's wicked fast navigating long and complex articles.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 09:57, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Halloween 2010 link

Can't someone update the Halloween 2010 link to point to the Page? http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Halloween_2010 Wynterarwynrose 23:20, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Also there shouldn't be anything Halloween like on the Factions campaign link, as the canthans don't celebrate the festival... (well, in my opinion) 20:44, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

I formally request that Team Roles (and related topics) be placed next to Tactics. Also, can we sqeeze Zaishen Challenge, Zaishen Elite, Zaishen Managerie, ect. somewhere in there?

I suggest linking the Zaishen locations near the beginning of Zaishen, and put the zaishen under the great temple of balthazar, or put each individual one under the GToB. Other than that, go for it, it sounds like a great idea.--Bold Baby Undies 05:23, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

why cant i edit it? why so special? the_decline 23:16, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

You can suggest changes on Main Page/editcopy. -- pling User Pling sig.png 23:32, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
And to answer the question, you can't edit it directly because it'd quickly become a target for vandalism. Everyone sees this page, so if something gets changed in an unfavorable way (links to porn sites, etc etc) it'd be especially bad for the wiki, moreso than other pages getting changed. -- Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 23:47, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

The update page

Probably the wrong place so move it if it is but the above post inspired me.. and as there is a link at the top of the main page? <3 Is that page protected also (the updates page because especially last updates people flooded the system with loads of rubbish, Might be an idea to only let certain people post the update news from the official site?--Nataliexxx 01:02, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Copyedit you mean? It doesn't get directly forwarded, a sysop comes and updates it every so often. So vandalism gets reverted and it's done. -- Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 04:47, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
