Dervish bosses skill checking[edit]

Hey there, noticed you checked a lot of the dervish bosses for changed skills, I was wondering if there were any that you did not check yet so that I know which ones you did not update you have or have not checked yet. For reference a list of (as of this post) un-updated dervish bosses:

Yeah, I was being lazy with the ones that actually have some distance from the outpost :) I have not done those.–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 23:20, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

So was that useful or no?[edit]

I meant for example: User Balistic difference.jpg When you see these two images side by side, you can obviously see the difference, and the difference is the faded parts of this image: User Balistic difference 2.jpg. Is there a quick way to single out that faded portion and make it an image? (like only the differences, same dimensions for the image, anything thats not different will be transparent)–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 01:34, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
Well I know what you mean but I don't know how to do that. Those images aren't the best because one is much darker and blurred than the other. Where do you define what is new or not? Would the dark areas be assumed as different? Maybe somebody else knows, I would just do it manually like i do now. Sorry that I couldn't be of help. You can use Auto Blend layers (stack images) to get a sense of where things lie different, then clean that up manually. Previously Unsigned 04:01, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
Oh, didn't notice that the two images had different colors, nevermind then :(–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 05:19, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
You can still use auto align/blend as a starting point. Don't give up. The best things are done manually, not automated. Previously Unsigned 09:23, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Nice ninja edit![edit]

Way to put my own dye chart on the page before me! Now go help me duplicate the image from The Bloodspear coz the one I used sucks and I don't know how to make dupz. :< ZencowUser Ox rider Sig.png 07:14, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

heh :) done–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 07:21, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

you could just say you were busy. Previously Unsigned 23:36, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Hmm?–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 19:33, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
Oh I thought you were being rude, that's all. Like I asked you something in game and it might have been too much but you just went offline lol. I hate that! If you were like "can't help now, or busy." Maybe it was just a coincidence or you weren't at the computer when I posted it. The number of times I have posted something throughout history and then the other person went offline withou saying anything, I am so suspicious! Previously Unsigned 04:30, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
Haha, yeah I'm often afk (not realizing that I had the game open), and then I just close the game :\–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 05:55, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Regarding Skill histories[edit]

I thought I would ask you this, since you were the one who created the page. I just added Bestial Fury's skill history, but now it appears that there are two pages listed in the list labelled Bestial Fury, the first one being the skill and the history, the second one being the skill history, and the skill history again. Did I do something wrong when I created the page? Blue Clouded 02:40, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

this.–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 02:50, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
I think I mis-interpreted what you said. It's still showing the duplicate. Blue Clouded 03:07, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
The page uses DPL to get the pages which are in the category specified (for that page Category:Beast Mastery skills), using |categorize = n removes the problem.–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 03:09, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
Ah, alright, thank you very much! Blue Clouded 03:11, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
I'm sorry to bother you again, but I'm having the same issue for this, where it's actually appearing three times, slightly glitched. I'm not sure what's causing it, as I have the |categorize = n embedded into the template. Blue Clouded 03:30, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
The problem seemed to clear up on its own. Thanks again. :) Blue Clouded 04:26, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

the Wedding Image[edit]

Thanks for catching the misspelling; that was next on my list after complimenting you on the snap (I think that's about the best vantage for the article's photo as I can imagine): well done. — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 05:48, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks :) Haha, no worries, it's not a misspelling :P I spelled my name wrong. heh–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 06:30, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Well, I like to think that you spelled your name right...and I made the mistake of using the spelling of the similar-sounding English word. In any case, nice work on the photo. — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 06:41, 10 May 2011 (UTC)


Hey, I saw you revert my Dragon Kamas render, and I Just wanted to tell you I actually agree with you :). I thought only one weapon didn't really represent the weapon well, but two were hard to get nicely on the picture. And since Emily Diehl rendered some daggers with only one showing also, I thought; why not. Anyway I'll stick to rendering other stuff ^^^ -- Magamdy 09:04, 22 May 2011 (UTC)


Hey, em um... Don't know if you know, but User:Balistic Pve/Suggestions shows up as a broken redirect to a page that you had deleted. Oh, can you leave me an email? As I've got a question and I don't know how to contact you about it as I'd rather not leave it here or on any wiki... Thank you. Kaisha User Kaisha Sig.png 01:13, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

And this Feedback:User/Balistic Pve/Minimize to Tray is a broken redirect. Kaisha User Kaisha Sig.png 01:45, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
Here you go!User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 05:47, 15 June 2011 (UTC)


for redirecting my picture, that was frustrating me. Twisting Fangs.jpg Scar 20:22, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Major templates[edit]

You might want to test out first *coughsandboxtemplatescough* since you know, job queue and all that when changing templates. --JonTheMon 04:32, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Sorry :3–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 04:32, 13 July 2011 (UTC)


Thanks for fixing the links on the shortcut list. I had planned to get to it later today and I appreciate you saving me the time/aggro. (Normally, I tag stuff that is okay to edit... but forgot to mark that article for some reason.) — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 18:33, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Haha no problem :) The redlinks were bothering me. One a side note, this is the first time I've actually seen anyone use ../ for transcluding templates :O–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 19:37, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
I support my relatives. — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 19:46, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Zoin central[edit]

You centered the Silver Zaishen Coin, but left Copper & Gold, so that they look weird side-by-side. I'm hopeless with images, so rather than reverting SZC, could you work your magic with the others? Thanks! — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 19:14, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

Elementalist Robes[edit]

Erm the robes here, you uploaded a picture for both left and right. Ooops. ^.^ Kaisha User Kaisha Sig.png 16:20, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

If you take a look at GWW:ARMORGALLERY, there isn't a profile at all, it lists both left and right.–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 17:17, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
Same image, labelled left AND right. sounds incorrect no? --File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 17:44, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
they actually aren't the same image... I must've thought that left was right when I was taking screenshots for the right-view image O.o My bad!–User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 03:54, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
