My little Messages of the Day are not exactly of the day but of the moment. I intend to change them at least once a week and at most once a day.
Two things again that I don't like about this wiki: 1. there's weird codes to delete stuff and this wiki isn't big and complex enough that admins need a complex system to tell them why something should be deleted. It just makes it harder to understand when reviewing it from the outside. This and several other things appear to be because this wiki uses practices of Wikipedia that are required on the pedia because its a huge wiki. This wiki.... you don't need all this complex stuff. 2. I'm not a sysop. Which is hard to get used to because I am used to stopping vandalism early from just watching recent changes and its weird to just watch it.
Retired 6/10/08::"...Idk I get the feeling that this wiki is kind of weighty with bureaucracy and policies. I feel like some strong leader should come in and say, "Hey, this is how its gonna work. If you don't like it, stuff it." If you're leaders are trusted and respected, then trust them to make the right decision. "
Retired 12/06/07:"You know how nukers always try to target enemies in clumps because to AoE one guy is a waste? Well, I always think like that when I nuke and get excited whenever I see my foes have clumped up nicely for me. Anyway, I was driving yesterday and saw a group of kids walking along the sidewalk and had the sudden urge to hit em all with my car because they were so nicely clumped. "
Retired 10/24/07:"Congratulations to Anet on the speedy nerf to the infinite shadow form build. I'd reported it not long ago and it seems they decided to do something about it! Deadly Paradoxes nerf was the perfect answer. You can read about my grievance here."
Retired 10/16/07:"The Dishonor system is good in that it cuts down on the amount of leavers in RA, leechers and leavers in AB drastically. However, the rules for leaving early need to be adjusted. For example, leaving an RA match when you're dead, most of your team is dead, and there are no rezzes left, I don't want to sit there and watch the wammo struggle for life... The other issue I have is the lack of a timer a HA matches. Yes, matches are longer than RA matches but the fact that the immortal Shadow Form sins can keep a successful team from getting their fame by running around for an hour until they get tired of waiting and leave? That's ridiculous. "
Retired 10/3/07:"Notice to all Spiritway groups: Roaring Winds is almost completely nullified by Energizing Wind. (RW makes shouts cost more by 10 energy. EW reduces all skill costs by 15 energy down to 10. So if you're bringing it to screw up DA paras, it doesn't work. Even the added energy cost to other shouts and chants isn't really noticeable when you're on the receiving end.)"
Retired 9/26/07:"Glyph of Immolation!? That's it!? ONE SHITTY FIRE MAGIC SKILL?! I was hoping so much that there would be more on actual release. I'm gonna cry."
Retired 8/31/07:"Someone seriously needs to nerf the Ghostly Hero. His interrupts are ridiculous."
Retired 8/04/07:"SH ftw! omg love nuking!?"
Retired 7/11/07: "I got Nightfall weeeeeeeeee. I was expecting more variety and excitement from Paragon and Dervish skills. Probably just need a feel for em before i get excited. Did get a glad point on a para already without runes or inscriptions lol."
Retired 6/24/07:"Tyrian male Mesmers are hot. Playing as one is one of the few occasions I will play a male character. One of the faces actually looks like hottie Orlando Bloom. I was remarking on (and playing as) this one day when someone said: 'No, you look like the guy from Pirates of the Caribbean'. It's amazing isn't it?... Now, what were they thinking with the Tyrian females?!"
Retired 6/14/07: "'Did you know that when you get to rank six, you skill level suddenly increases? At rank 0 you have no skill. At rank 3, some skill, and rank 6, enough skill to be considered worthy. At rank 9 you are assumed to know every skill in the game and competently play any build. If you are only a few fame short of rank 6, you still suck. You need those last few fame to be good. Those last few fame prove your skill.' Demanding anything above rank 3 for SF spikes and IWAY is silly. These are simple enough builds."
Retired 6/7/07: "Most of the Assassin armor makes no sense. When I think Assassin, I think 'guy who can sneak into a castle, surreptiously murder someone of importance, and make a quiet escape.' When I see the armor, I think, 'guy who sneaks into a castle and has his plans foiled when the big ugly spikes on his armor get caught on drapes, knock over vases, and wake up the target by poking them in the eye when leaning in for the kill.' It's just silly."
Retired 5/27/07:"'Only pompous people who want to show how mature and open-minded they are say 'IMHO' instead of 'IMO'. Only people who have trouble differentiating between fact and expressions of opinion at all need to say anything.' In that regard, everything I say in talk pages and my own user name space is considered to be flagged IMO."
Retired 5/22/07: "If you think touch ranger is easy to play...try an AoE/MoM smite (spamming RoF and Guardian to trigger Zealot's Fire. Even better, try a machine gunner (Me/E spamming Stone Daggers with Kinetic Armor and Armor of Earth)"
Retired 5/19/07: "Anet gave us a wonderful party window to end the spam... no one uses it.... gg nubs"
Retired 5/18/07: "Effective nuker guide: the more 3 digit yellow numbers, the better."
