Your Signature[edit]

Hi, your Signature violates our Signature Policy. You must not use Template Calls in your Signature! Please change it asap. Thanks. --SilentStorm Talk to me 03:17, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Template:Minions nav[edit]

I had previously changed the colour of that template so it would match the colour of the infobox, which is usually the way nav bars are coloured (unless I'm mistaken). Anyway, I replied to the post on the talk page, so you might be interested in going there. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 23:38, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Nice User Page


Sorry I changed the dervish section twice! I forgot the situation around Whirling Charge.. Im glad you are in the animation team =) -- Cyan User Cyan Light sig.jpg 15:45, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

No problem. — User Balistic Pve Sig.png Balistic 01:06, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

GWW:BOTS --User Ezekial Riddle silverbluesig.pngRIDDLE 03:01, 12 November 2009 (UTC) P.S. Guild Wars Wiki:Bots

(Edit conflict)Yeah, sorry didn't notice. Made a bot account, but I'm unsure whether I can have one. Is there a rule on making bot accounts? Bot Went Balistic 03:03, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
Not really. But if you're going to be botting, may as well try to get your bot to have bots rights. --User Ezekial Riddle silverbluesig.pngRIDDLE 03:06, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
Guild Wars Wiki:Bots -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 03:07, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
Hmmm so if I'm using AWB, how would I make it have an auto-stop by checking the talk page? Bot Went Balistic 03:18, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
Probably something to do with <div class="usermessage"> and when that pops up? --User Ezekial Riddle silverbluesig.pngRIDDLE 03:26, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
I don't think that works with AWB. — User Balistic Pve Sig.png Balistic 03:26, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
Really? It can't detect that class? (Not that I know anything of AWB.) --User Ezekial Riddle silverbluesig.pngRIDDLE 03:32, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
Alternatively, you can request bot edits on the page Riddle linked, so that Poke can get Wikichu to automatically do the edits - he's got a bot flag and a more sophisticated framework than AWB, which would be more useful. However, I'm not sure whether something like this would be accepted, as typically we're hesitant to ping a large number of talk pages. I guess it largely depends on the reason for doing so. -- pling User Pling sig.png 14:00, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
Also, it is allowed to bot without a bot flag -- i could bot 1500 pages every once in a while (subst: unsigned templates) — User Balistic Pve Sig.png Balistic 01:51, 13 November 2009 (UTC)
Something like that should be bot-edited if it's going to be done at all. As I said, some might object to unnecessarily editing that many pages. -- pling User Pling sig.png 14:09, 13 November 2009 (UTC)


Why are you messing with my pages? -- User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 00:46, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Works the same. In stead of saying User:User/blahblah, replace User, you can just say Special:MyPage/blahblah. — User Balistic Pve Sig.png Balistic 00:47, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
Except I don't want it linked to my pages and am not interested in a direct link that would have them loose 'information' needed to copy, etc. -- User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 00:50, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
What? It links to whoever is loged in. When I click on Special:MyPage/blahblah it goes to → User:Balistic Pve/blahblah. It doesn't link to your page. It links to whoever is signed in's page. — User Balistic Pve Sig.png Balistic 01:02, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
Still, wouldn't it take them away from the 'coding'? -- User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 01:06, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
You said copy the code to that page. If they were going to use it wouldn't it take them away from the 'coding' anyways? — User Balistic Pve Sig.png Balistic 01:08, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I'm confused. -- User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 01:34, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Editing Scepter of the Forgotten syntax[edit]

I am aware that I may not have fully grasped the mastery in editing, however I believe your edit based on my contribution on this page concerning the < br > code was incorrect (which you replaced with < br />. As I've done HTML, I decided it seemed wrong and did some research into the correct syntax. So far as I've seen in Wikipedia's pages, my original code was correct and you provided no documentation nor comments regarding your change. Please explain your change with evidence or I'll request to revert the page. --Diseraph 17:57, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

idk, over at pvx they had a bot changing br to br / so i think br / > br — User Balistic Pve Sig.png Balistic 18:00, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
really no difference actually. — User Balistic Pve Sig.png Balistic 18:01, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
Judging from previous entries in this page, it does seem that some of these harmless changes you are making are causing more confusion than clarifying the purpose of the pages, which I imagine is rather opposing of your intent. I believe there is such thing as over-editing. :) --Diseraph 18:11, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Guild Page(s)[edit]

Is it Generation Of Legends or Generations Of Legends ingame? Because unless both really exist ingame one of those redirects is redundant. --SilentStorm Talk to me 17:09, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

its Generation Of Legends. — User Balistic Pve Sig.png Balistic 17:48, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Just a note that your request for user merge is done. Sorry for the delay. Don't forget to start logging in under Balistic, and you might want to move over your userpage and talk and such. - Tanetris 17:31, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Wintersday 2009 Redux[edit]

Guess you dislike the "break" code, but either way, something was needed there, since the schedule and hats info were crashing._MystiLefemEle 00:10, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

I didn't see anything "crashing", it seemed alright before your edit as well. –User Balistic Pve B d-dark.jpgalistic 00:11, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
No worries, all the same, but before my edit, it was crashing/overlapping, although could be at my end, but maybe not. all tha same, either "break or the clear code" worked._MystiLefemEle 00:17, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Why no acquisition section?[edit]

I do believe that PvP skills are acquired the same way as their respective PvE counterpart. --Rumour Kontrol 06:23, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

PvP skills are bought from the Priest of Balthazar. If you're using a PvP character, then you have no way of going to the PvE areas. –User Balistic Pve B d-dark.jpgalistic 23:29, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Well, yes of course. However, that is not the exclusive method for acquiring the PvP skills. Obtaining the skill in PvE is also a viable method, since the skill becomes unlocked on your account, which lets your PvP characters use the skill. --Rumour Kontrol 02:10, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Thus, you are obtaining the skill through PvE means, which is already listed on the PvE version of the page. –User Balistic Pve B d-dark.jpgalistic 02:11, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Which also lets you use the PvP version of the skill, provided there is a PvP version of it. It's wasted time to have to follow another link to have to find out how to acquire the skill. I think it would be much easier if we included the PvE acquisitions on the PvP page. --Rumour Kontrol 02:17, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
When you first click on a link to a skill or click on an image you are automatically led to the PvE version, thus if you scrolled down you would already see PvE acquisition. –User Balistic Pve B d-dark.jpgalistic 02:19, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
And what happens if you follow the link to the PvP skill from in the game? --Rumour Kontrol 02:22, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Then you are already in PvP and have encountered the skill. –User Balistic Pve B d-dark.jpgalistic 02:23, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Well good chap, neither of us are wanting to give ground on this, so it seems. --Rumour Kontrol 02:29, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
I have started a discussion here to get more input on this issue. It is not something that necessarily should be decided by 2 people. -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 02:41, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

What would you be planning on doing with our cape? 04:02, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Guild Page (: –User Balistic Pve B d-dark.jpgalistic 04:08, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

hey there[edit]

I saw you had edited some of the skill pages too. Yet, if you look. I have users complaining on my page and not the others who edited these skill pages. Sad, some would say I put wrong information, when it's the same information as their page and the same information others used on some of these pages. I guess it's sad when honest help isn't appreciated, but complained at for things you do wrong. Never thanked for the good. Funny how life goes and to me, no wonder the world is dying of respect. I hope your rfa goes well. I was actually intending on leaving this message. All in short, I'm glad you are helpful too, like I try to be. Kaisha User Kaisha Sig.png 04:10, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Um, Balistic was not adding incorrect information, nor was he adding information that did not comply with the skill page formatting guidelines. We are not "harassing" you, we are just trying to help you learn the correct way to edit, based on what has been agreed on by the community. Your desire to help make the wiki better is appreciated, it's just best for everyone if it is done correctly the first time, rather than needing someone else to correct it afterwards. -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 04:15, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
He did same to similar that I did. Nothing was changed to be "incorrect", except the notes, which was noted on my page by the good people, before you had more jumping in not knowing that hey this person knows. They're just leaving it along. I'm not making out like i'm innocent or whining cause I'm the bad guy. I'm just pointing out that it's obvious people don't pay attention before they're complaining about the same things that's done been taken care of by fellow members, including you. Thank you. Kaisha User Kaisha Sig.png 04:20, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Um, by incorrect I meant based on information from the update notes rather than what the descriptions say in game. I don't see anyone reverting Balistic's edits.... -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 04:26, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Information in game is the same as what's changed. Do a screenshot to compare and "fix" if you think one's wrong? Wouldn't that be something to make sure of? Just wondering. Kaisha User Kaisha Sig.png 04:37, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Your changes on Vampiric Swarm were incorrect when compared to in game skill wording. Therefore, they were reverted. 04:38, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Then it's wrong in the update message and/or needed not be added if nothing changed. That is, if you're correct. I'm seeing differently atm on my necro. Kaisha User Kaisha Sig.png 04:48, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Altered Guild Infobox[edit]

Is not allowed by GWW:GUILD :D Sorry... -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 04:31, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

That's quite unfortunate. The black was hawt. 04:33, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
I'm guessing I couldn't change {{guild}} on Guild:Experientia Docet either could I? –User Balistic Pve B d-dark.jpgalistic 04:36, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Wish one could alter that. It'd be nice if the infobox could match up a bit more to the colors that the guild uses in their capes. Kaisha User Kaisha Sig.png 04:38, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
The default {{guild}} and {{guild infobox}} are required elements. Same for the {{alliance nav}}. -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 04:41, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
@Kaisha, it took 3 months of discussion to get consensus on the last guild page policy change, and this was one of the highly debated issues. If you feel you can do better at getting a consensus to change it, feel free to propose it. -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 04:53, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

You know the project page is named wrong ~ it should be Guild Wars Wiki:Projects/Skill history. I'm considering moving it and all the subpages so they are correct, I'm thinking it's better to do it now when there are only 46 than once all the rest have been created. Also, on the same note, you created the table template with the wrong name, you have Skills history rather than Skill history. What do you think? Should we correct these errors and fix all the links? -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 02:59, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Yup, yup (: –User Balistic Pve B d-dark.jpgalistic 03:01, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
Ok, I have moved the pages/subpages and corrected the necessary links. It's up to you to deal with correcting the template page and corresponding links. Especially since that only requires one or two deletions. :D -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 03:54, 30 January 2010 (UTC)


The Sunspear Refugee has no link. Like, there is no entry for them. I was going to make one, but it seemed rather useless.
