if you have the time[edit]

could you help me, i would like to set up a page, and possible a guild page, any input would be wonderful, thank you. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

Sure. I'm going to bed in a few minutes as it's late here, but I'll have time tomorrow afternoon (1900 UTC and after). Before making the pages though, I suggest you look at GWW:USER, GWW:GUILD, and Help:Editing. Calor Talk 03:24, 13 May 2008 (UTC)


cheater, you left one topic so i can't say first :P - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 20:53, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Only because I archive every 12th of the month, and both those comments were on the 13th. Calor Talk 21:06, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
in that case... - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 21:12, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
Just out of curiosity why the 12th? --Kakarot Talk 02:48, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
The first time I archived, by chance it was the twelfth. Then my page got around archiving size a few days before the twelfth of the next month. So I figured it would be organized to have a n archive for each month, so the past few months I've been archiving every twelfth. Calor Talk 03:13, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
Ah that makes sense, just seemed a bit weird if it was a random choice. --Kakarot Talk 03:18, 14 May 2008 (UTC)


Nuh uh Yo, I am first! — Eloc 01:57, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi Calor :D Welcome to GWW! I notice you have been building your userpage. Did you know you can use the Show Preview button to see how it's going to look prior to actually saving it? Also, when you make small changes, it's often better to select This is a minor edit box above the Save page button. Many users that watch the Recent changes page have minor edits hidden thus your small changes would not show up. Feel free to contact any helper if you have questions. Anyway, happy wiki-ing and welcome! --Pling! \ Brains12 23:19, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Specterryu? Reminds me of Inspector Gadget... Also, I highly suggest you follow GWW:F*CKOFF :p Calor Talk 23:20, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Wyn! You hacked Brains's account? Calor Talk 23:21, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
(Edit conflict x4) No offense to anyone . But thats getting old, seriously. Dominator Matrix 23:22, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
Err, what? And how are you ec'ed 5 times in a section with 4 comments before you? Calor Talk 23:23, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
Slow typer, plus rapid messaging >> Dominator Matrix 23:24, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
Err, no. 4 comments = 4 times to be ec'ed. Calor Talk 23:24, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
I double-edited, so that would be 5 edit conflicts. --Pling! \ Brains12 23:25, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Right. I forgot, sysops make errors :) Calor Talk 23:26, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
I've edit conflicted myself before on one addition so that could of been another reason. --Kakarot Talk 23:29, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
You're Kakarot. We're discussing normal users here :p Calor Talk 23:30, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Category:Historical skill icons[edit]

nice idea :D —ZerphatalkThe Improver 00:02, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, Wyn came up with it, I'm simply doing the dirty work. I figured you'd like it, considering the time you've invested in historical aspects of the game. Calor Talk 00:03, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
:) Well yeah, it's kinda interesting to see some skills that were planned or removed during development. But Rusky reuploaded all these icons with a new better brightness afterwards. —ZerphatalkThe Improver 00:06, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Aye, Risky went on a spree. Calor Talk 00:07, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, except for some of the seperate allegiance rank icons, he uploaded new better quality versions for the icons, some of them even more than twice. (These seperate luxon/kurzick skill icons are seemingly forgotten at times :P) —ZerphatalkThe Improver 00:11, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Veiled shot at me there, Zerpha? :p Calor Talk 00:12, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Me? Never —ZerphatalkThe Improver 00:14, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
You're going to tag all these icons a second time by campaign? °-° —ZerphatalkThe Improver 00:16, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Maybe. Calor Talk 00:17, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
He's just trying to break RC again. --Kakarot Talk 00:17, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Silence, you! :) Calor Talk 00:18, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Ok, i'm doing the Nightfall icons, Kakarot those from Factions and Calor the Prophecies ones. Let's see what happens! —ZerphatalkThe Improver 00:19, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Lol no, please. One person puts less load on RC and the watchers. Calor Talk 00:20, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
too bad. Well ok, i'll go to sleep then. goodnight, and hf with your new category tagging spree^^ —ZerphatalkThe Improver 00:24, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Enjoy your night, and don't have nightmares of a broken wiki :) Calor Talk 00:26, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Lol, don't worry! :) —ZerphatalkThe Improver 00:31, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

the show...[edit]

must go on! :P —ZerphatalkThe Improver 01:17, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

My list is dwindling, tragically. I'm probably gonna get Poke with Wikichu to do the ones by campaign. Then I'm thinking something like elites by campaign with Wikichu. Calor Talk 01:19, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
What an interesting turn of events. --TalkPeople of Antioch 01:20, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
Meh, my fingers were screaming carpal tunnel syndrome. Calor Talk 01:23, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
Hmm, give me some of the load, I'll do my best.  :-) Also, I'm watching lol, Kingdom Hears at the moment. --TalkPeople of Antioch 01:25, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps. On a side note, what city/town is Regina in in-game? Calor Talk 01:27, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
/shrug --TalkPeople of Antioch 01:32, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for your assistance in this affair, People of Antioch. Your information is of great value to us and will be put to good use. Calor Talk 01:52, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
Lol, i didn't get everyting from this vid, but the south park and James Blunt part were my favourites.
Calor, to what did you refer with your question? I doubt Regina is online now, is she? —ZerphatalkThe Improver 02:00, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
I have her in my Friends List so I know when she's on, and she was on earlier. Calor Talk 02:02, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Interwiki links[edit]

I noticed here how you linked the wiki pages, it's much easier using inter wiki links. Your links could have been shown like DPL and DynamicPageLinks and they show up as internal links instead of external links. Just an FYI. — Rappy 03:51, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

It's easier to just hotlink it when you don't know the right interwiki marker, instead of going through trial and error. --Pling! \ Brains12 13:13, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Yeah. I know Wikipedia's is w, but I didn't know the ones I linked, so it was easier to copy the URL and paste it. Calor Talk 16:18, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Guild Wars utopia edit[edit]

Please feel free to undo my edit by all means. Although the word "utopia" was being used incorrectly, it is still the common usage of the word. Since the note said it is commonly used to describe a perfect society or something along those lines, it was acceptable with the understanding that it was using the most common usage. Even if the usage is technically incorrect, it is still the general usage, which is what the note was reffering to. -- 13:24, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Alright, thanks. I've always known "Utopia" to be an ideal society, and I'm sure that's what 95% of the people know it as. Thanks, Calor Talk 14:20, 18 May 2008 (UTC)


ty i almost forgot to =D King-User Kigofcats U tastes good.jpg 03:08, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

No problem. I was just about to notify you on your talk page, but you beat me here. Just remember to make all your subpages at User:Kingofcats/Subpagenamehere. Thanks :) Calor Talk 03:09, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
Can it be deleted for U2 considering User:Kingofcats Sandbox exists contribs --Kakarot Talk 03:10, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
... That was... an interesting turn of events. Calor Talk 03:11, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, best not to look at the Prefix index then, considering it looks like Kingofcats Piehi and Kingofcats the real king of the jungle are a similar situation. By the looks of it they are all Kingofcats lol. --Kakarot Talk 03:16, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
O.O Another one? --Kakarot Talk 03:18, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Can I?[edit]

Can I make him a sysop just to "shock" him? I don't think I can break the wiki... and can't make anyone ragequit... and not planning on rage-quitting.... that leaves making him a sysop. Hmm.... :) Have a good trip. -- User Sig.png 10:29, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

I can break the wiki! Or, I did it already once :D It was down for about 10 minutes :P poke | talk 13:45, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
Well then :P Off to check user rights changes... Calor Talk 21:08, 26 May 2008 (UTC)


I know you were most likely joking, but I have been wanting you to be given sysop rights for a long time now. Your personality seems to fit the role and I think that you would be a great addition to the admin team. I really do hope you accept the nomination :o) --Shadowphoenix Please, talk to me; I'm so lonley ;-; 23:31, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Some time in the future, likely, but not now. The sysops are managing just fine, and I don't feel like committing more time to the wiki at the moment. Calor Talk 21:08, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
I have to admit that I am quite disappointed, I hope you can become a sysop sometime in the furture :o). (btw, wb :D) --Shadowphoenix Please, talk to me; I'm so lonley ;-; 22:31, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps. I have no need to be a sysop (other than to boast and brag) and the wiki has no need to have another sysop yet. It will probably be another story when GW2W becomes more active when GW2 nears release. Or maybe this summer, when I have a lot of free time I'll consider an RfA. Who knows.

font change[edit]

the "hurry up" looked better. - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 10:24, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Hmm. I think I don't have that "Hurry Up" font :P poke | talk 10:58, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Well aren't we all artists :p. I wanted some sort of change of style, so I changed colors and fonts. Maybe I'll overhaul the page in a few weeks. Calor Talk 18:28, 28 May 2008 (UTC)


Is there rules about how big your user page can get? Like 500kb? →[ »Halogod User Halogod35 Sig.png (talk ]← 04:28, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Indeed there is, 300kb. --Kakarot Talk 04:33, 1 June 2008 (UTC)


Yeh we decided to change it on IRC (figured i'd respond here because your more likely to see it =p) ~PheNaxKian User PheNaxKian sig.jpg Talk 19:22, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Ah, alright. And I watchlisted your page, so there would've been just as fine :p. Thanks, Calor Talk 20:23, 2 June 2008 (UTC)


Stop adding random content and links to pages, especially when you know the content is impertinent. Continuing in this manner will result in a ban from editing. Calor Talk 19:59, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

um what? 20:22, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Sigh... I think I clicked the wrong IP by mistake. Sorry. Some IP who was editing near the same time as you was adding random links and text to pages. Sorry for confusing you. My mistake, Calor Talk 22:57, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

User talk:Shadowphoenix[edit]

Damn I was just about to do that exact thing lol:) --Kakarot Talk 00:46, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Heh :D Calor Talk 00:47, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Premade template[edit]

Just out of curiosity, is there a premade template for user pages that I can simply edit? I really don't like attempting to learn CSS especially when my forte is HTML. Thank you. Rev 17:41, 7 June 2008 (UTC) don't need to know CSS, and even then, it takes an hour to learn. Not even. But I believe User:Lensor has a character template for your userspace. There's no "about me" type userpage template, as the options are so diverse. Most HTML can be used on wikis, so make a page in HTML and see how it turns out. Calor Talk 21:12, 7 June 2008 (UTC)


Doh, thanks! --Star Weaver 19:19, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

NP. We all make silly mistakes like that. Calor Talk 19:47, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks and a Question[edit]

Hey there, thanks for improving the Sets of Kournan Armor page. I was wondering how did you get the picture to load? I set it up then uploaded the image. It wouldn't load and I couldn't figure out why so I left it be hoping that someone else would figure it out. I'm asking so next time I'd know what to do and leave less clutter for others to clean up. – User Barinthus Magical Compass.png Barinthus 19:59, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

It was loaded when I first looked at the page. It was probably wiki server lag, and it took a minute for everything to cache. Just wait it out a few minutes, and it should be fine. Calor Talk 20:02, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
Alright, I thought perhaps that's why but wanted to double check. – User Barinthus Magical Compass.png Barinthus 20:15, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

now i'm confused[edit]

why did you add a redirect to these weird pagenames like DGASDBASDB? —ZerphatalkThe Improver 20:25, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

No, that was a vandal. I reverted the vandal. Calor Talk 20:26, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
Moving a page automatically adds a redirect. Calor was moving back pages that a vandal had previously moved to those odd names. Go to Aiiane's Talk page (Aiiane - talk - contribs) 20:26, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
Actually we want the vandals to be able to find their moved content again, when they go to the pages they created. poke | talk 20:28, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
Weird, my wiki only showed up you redirecting the accordant page to something like e.g. Unique item in the page history. —ZerphatalkThe Improver 20:31, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
Ok, thanks Calor, thanks Aiine, thanks poke, now i got it. I didn't notice the vandal on Unique item. You're just planning something against that, right? But why should vandals be able to find their content again? —ZerphatalkThe Improver 20:45, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
LOL xD poke | talk 20:48, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
You know sarcasm has achieved its intended effect when you fool a smart person with it. That, Zerpha, my friend, was sarcasm. Of course we don't want to, in any way, help a vandal. Calor Talk 20:50, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
Silly me, i didn't suspect poke to use sarcasm without any sign in this situation...i read his comment carefully about three or four times, but didn't think of sarcasm right now :P —ZerphatalkThe Improver 21:01, 12 June 2008 (UTC)


how do u make those badges? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Smurph (talk • contribs) at 01:17, 14 June 2008 (UTC).

What "badges"? Calor Talk 02:52, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
I think he is refering to the userboxes, I believe they are called badges on wikipedia. or something similar to that.. --Shadowphoenix Please, talk to me; I'm so lonley ;-; 05:31, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
See Template:Userbox. poke | talk 06:18, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
or Category:User box templates. - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 11:49, 14 June 2008 (UTC)


What about adding in icons of dyed armor and weapons? Little bit too much? — Renuro Seru User Seru Sig2.png Talk 02:57, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Most developed weapon pages have a dye chart of the weapon dyed the eight (?) dyes. As for armor, it's probably too much. The potential combinations and clutter are overwhelming. Also, I don't believe dyed objects can be extracted from the .Dat, so a gallery would look real sloppy with different lighting and height and zoom and resolution, etc. Calor Talk 18:29, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Happy Anniversary?[edit]

Moving Pages[edit]

In response to your comment on moving the page. How would you do that? I'm a bit new to the Wiki so I don't know all the tricks :P —U T O P I A N 23:52, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Heh, sorry, I immediately assumed you knew. At the top of every page (assuming it's not protected from moving), to the right of the history tab, is a move tab. Click that, then enter the proper names in the proper fields, and check the proper boxes. It's simple :) Calor Talk 23:57, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
Oh! Thats really simple ;P Thanks for the help! —U T O P I A N 00:00, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
No problem :) Calor Talk 00:03, 29 June 2008 (UTC)


Heh, you are right. Just going straight and including the min-max from vanquish may be a better idea than rewording (which has proven to fail anyways in the past).--Fighterdoken 00:10, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

It's from vanquish? O.o I just picked random numbers based on what was already there and worded it nicely. Anyways, whatever works... Calor Talk 00:23, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Userpage Help[edit]

Hey. Was wondering if you could help me with my user page.. The navigation, support etc. boxes.. have kinda moved.. and im not sure how.. Any help would be apprieciated Thanks (: --Lava spider.jpgSpider 21:53, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

The problem started with your edit on May 18th. I commented out what you added in that edit, as a temporary fix (You added the userbox section and a load of <br>'s). I can't tell you exactly what in that section caused the problem, but I'll take a look at it after dinner (It's 6:00 here :)). Take another look at in the mean time. The error's probably blatantly obvious and both you and I missed it :p. Good luck, Calor Talk 22:03, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

hi there[edit]

I'm sorry, im quite new to GWW, can u explain why you are planning to delete my guild page Shadow of Torment? I'm sorry if its something obvious, i would just like to know how i can fix it so it doesnt get deleted. THanks --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

irl, my brother and his wife are coming up to move in with us. Along with their unborn little girl. <3 Uncle time! Been cleaning the house quite often, really. Painting too. You know, I've been thinking about getting a name change, since when ever people say the word "people", I sometimes think it refers to me. How about Shadowphoenix? That sounds like a good name. --TalkPeople of Antioch 02:15, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Ah, nice. My brother's 24, coming up on 25, so the whole uncle thing should come up in a few years. Been painting our brand-shiny-new exercise room. Funny how similar two different lives can be... As for a new name for you, just plain "Antioch" would work well. We'd know it's you, it's short, and sounds neat. Although you do lose those couple thousand contribs...

max HP[edit]

I did some of my own "calculations" and i came to the conclusion that the max hp possible is 2230.

I figure at 16 strength, endure pain, defy pain, signet of stamina.

Full survivors armor, rune of superior vigor, rune of vitea.

A sheild with a +60 while hexed mod, and a main weapon with a +30 mod.

A Mo/Rt with 16 protection and 16 communing casting vital blessing and vital weapon.

If you could work with me maybe we could come to some final agreement as to what the maximum health an average player could actually receive in game. Either way, check it over to see if i missed anything.

Dolche 00:52, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

sry.. double posted! my bad.

Dolche 00:53, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

There are so many things that could contribute to that, so you really can't get an accurate answer. I'm slightly groggy at the moment, so I'm not remembering things very well, but I believe there are spirits and such that can raise max health (under certain conditions?) for a time. Also, certain skills like Defile Flesh and consumables. Perhaps the best way to go about it would be calculating a "maximum possible health before skills or conditions". Calor Talk 00:59, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
i guess that is another way. But i am still interested in what is THE highest health a player can get.

Upload file (there's a button in the toolbox nav also) and follow the instructions.

Please don't undelete suggestions that deserve to be deleted[edit]

Seriously, why would you want a suggestion like the one on top of the list implemented? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

Not sure what you mean. I haven't undeleted anything in my time as a sysop. Are you referring to my untagging of Arenanet:Guild Wars suggestions? If so, it's because the delete tag categorized the whole page for deletion, which we don't want. That page stays. I'm not very familiar with how the Arenanet namespace works. Ask User:Erasculio or User:Gordon Ecker about how to properly scratch a single idea. I'm not sure if you can act unilaterally or need to discuss on the main talk page. calor (talk) 18:24, 14 September 2008 (UTC)


i apologize for the NPA violation. I'm just tired of Izzy single-handedly ruining guild wars. Literally, let's look at the nerf to smiter's boon. Instead of finding a way to balance it and make it work without being overpowered, izzy said "I don't feel like doing the job i get payed for, let's take the lazy way out and kill the skill completely". If you were a doctor, and you had a terminally ill patient, would you say "lets take the lazy way out and let them die"? No, you would spend hours on end to find what is wrong and make sure the patient lives a healthy life. Izzy has made a few bonehead moves in the past, but they were forgivable. Now, he has ruined GvG completely with the Amulet of Protection bug, and he ruined a rather viable (if a little overpowered skill) skill by taking the easy way out. Anet seriously needs to see this, and if Izzy is the skill balancer in guild wars 2, as much as i love this game, i will not buy it. that simple 02:36, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

I c wut u did thar.
One of GW's overarching problems is the insane number of skills. Most normal people can't be expected to be able to connect every skill icon with the skill's name and effect in the split second you have to decide how to react in PvP, not to mention all the overpowered shit that comes as a result of so many random skills reacting in ways unforseen when the game was originally developed. I mean, seriously, were the devs thinking about Heart of Holy Flame when they made Power Attack? Of course not.
The other thing is Izzy had nothing to do with the coding of Amulet of Protection. He's a balancer, not a coder.
Smiter's Boon was overpowered. It's a skill that never should have existed, but the team in charge of creating new skills isn't the team in charge of balancing the game (and, it seems, doesn't consider PvP when it creates new skills).
I appreciate your rage directed at Izzy - he deserves it - but it's founded upon the wrong principles. GW's current skill system is like a garden left to its own devices for, say, three years on end - what began as a nicely trimmed bunch of flowers with a few weeds here and there has morphed into an overgrown tangle of ivy that's choking out all the good plants - it needs a chainsaw, and badly. Izzy's tried applying it in the past, but not with enough force and in the right places (usually only one of the two). 03:36, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
Tbh, the amount of skills is not/ should not be the problem. WoW also has an insane number of skills, but the balancers there can find ways to keep the game relatively balanced. Hmm? perhaps this is because they actually do what they're paid to do...? idk though... 17:25, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
An insane number of skills? According to WowWiki, Mages only have 38 non-talent spells (counting the Portal series, Teleport series and Conjure Mana Stone series as one spell each) and 11 talent spells. -- Gordon Ecker 23:56, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
Don't count the portal, teleport, slow fall, or conjure food/drink spells (including Ritual of Refreshment) - they simply don't contribute to balance at all (portal and teleport have a 10s cast and are really more for convenience than anything, conjure food/drink just saves you money buying proper food, and slow fall is essentially never used due to the reagent that's only available from birds no one farms). Also, WoW is not balanced. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 00:26, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
I just did a more careful count, excluding Slow Fall, they've got 31 non-talent buffs and combat spells (I'm counting Arcane Brilliance and Arcane Intellect as the same buff because they don't stack, and counting Conjure Mana Stone as a buff since the stones are usable in combat and have their own cooldown). -- Gordon Ecker 03:12, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

I did so. It's just a vandal unhappy with not getting their way. Backsword 23:17, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

One post on the buildings talk page. What about with the "Don't repeat these mistakes", and the benefits one? And I'll repeat what I told you on your talk page: The IP is not a vandal because he has an opinion which conflicts with yours. He's not a vandal because he is an IP. IP's are just as important as any other user. Would you have repeatedly reverted a well-known member of the community in good standing like that? I doubt it. calor (talk) 23:22, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
I posted on the mistakes page, Calor. I also informed the IP of 1RR which is when he started using sockpuppets and complaining about 1rr., which he had never mentioned before. Please check these things out before posting, it doesn't look good when you don't. And no, I would not have acted like that against a person in good standing because anyone doing that would not have been in good standing. Backsword 23:26, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

(Edit conflict) I apologize, I didn't realize this went all the way back to Dec. 21st. Guess I didn't look back far enough in your contributions. So you're right there. Although, that "discussion" resolved nothing, and resulted in the IP posting lower on the page today. Perhaps discuss it there? As for the good standing comment, that's a bit of a Catch-22, but I'll ignore it. Not the greatest example. calor (talk) 23:30, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
Obviously, if the anon would have talked it would have been helpful, but given it engaged in vengance vandalism, it's maturity level isn't such that this is likely to happen now, don't you think? (The lower section is just a copy of what I told it)00:29, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
For future reference, wikipedia has an reasonable article here: w:Wikipedia:Signs of sock puppetry. This is a textbook example and to be honest, I do expect sysops to see thru such things immediately. Backsword 00:29, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
As a matter of fact, the anon just left a comment on the AN. Maturity level is hardly a topic that you should be lecturing others on. Lord Belar 00:37, 4 January 2009 (UTC) (English check: Use 'he,' not 'it,' vengeance, its, through. I give you a D-.)

Check the 10-day weather forecast for Boston, MA. Pretty miserable. But aside from that, I've been doing very well. I could probably write a book on what I've done in the past nine months, so I won't go into any sort of detail, but suffice to say it's been a great year. Now that it's summer and I'm free to sleep until 1 if I so choose, I may return to the wiki. I really don't know. Cheers, calor (talk) 17:32, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Question about No Personal Attack Rule[edit]

Hello. Recently, an ex guild member started to continually post a deflamitory paragraph about the guild leaders on the guild's wiki page. The guild leader deleted it, then it was posted up again. Another wiki member deleted it this time, but I feel it will be put up yet again. The attacks can be seen here [3] and here [4]. The person has been using different computers to change IP's, not sure what to do. Thank you for your help on this matter. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 14:20, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Yes, the comments are defamation, so violate NPA, etc., etc. I warned both of the IP's, although that's probably an effort in vain if the commenter is using proxies, but there's not much else to do unless he/she comes back again. calor (talk) 22:31, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for your assistance.Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 23:27, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
He has posted another comment. I responded pretty much asking him to leave us alone, and the Guild Leader archived the discussion page, but you can see his post here (and he signed this time) [5]. Mat Cauthorn, The Botanist 00:15, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

Banned for 335 Hours?![edit]

I'm confused about why I was banned for such a long period of time in Guild Wars, actually I confused about being band for any amount of time. What are the reasons? It says that I scammed someone but I did no such thing. The last thing I remember doing is running someone last night through Eye of the North and him paying me 80k to complete it. I ran him through everything but the last mission because I died and could not complete the run and he was a sleep at his computer. I waited for some time but he never responded and so I left him a message saying that I would be on today pm me and I will finish the run. I pride myself in never scamming someone or cheating them this is a big surprise to me pleace connect me asp. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:GXC7243 (talk).

The person you ran probably never noticed your message. I didn't know they gave two week bans for scams. I personally can't help you, I'm only a wiki administrator, and I doubt support can either because you don't have any evidence supporting you or a means of contacting the person you ran. You should still try filling out a support ticket... It can't hurt to try. Good luck calor (talk) 01:09, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
Ok Thank you very much for your quick reply and your help. Is ther any way to contact a admin from Anet that can help me besides the ticket?--GXC7243 01:22, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
Please read this. If contacting support won't help you, you may contact Gaile Gray to help with your case. But please try the way via support first. poke | talk 10:35, 15 December 2009 (UTC)


Hi, Calor. What exactly did you accomplish by overriding Emmett's block here with the exact same settings? 03:54, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

I think Calor was just putting what kind, as there have been a number of trivia removal vandals lately. -- My Talk Lacky 06:25, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. And it doesn't require AHK. Xhenchmanx 02:52, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
What is this, a test of reflexes? I like it. Though if you're into testing reflexes, I hear sprinting through the woods is a fantastic way to do so. Works for me in the warmer months. Also Shard, he just highlights and backspaces x 20. Little manual typing involved. calor (talk) 02:50, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Highlight and backspace x 1 actually. I don't care about the "race" aspect of this at all. I just like knowing that I am drawing admins away from doing something else to sit here and babysit the recent changes. Also, can't you guys at least wait until I start removing trivia to block me? I thought we were really making progress here. Xhenchmanx 02:52, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Nicely done. And no. Pre-emptive strike. calor (talk) 02:54, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh, fyi, there's no real work to be done, at least on my part. I have little desire to participate in wiki projects. So you're not distracting us admins a whole lot. calor (talk) 02:57, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Whatever you say, but it's plainly obvious that most of the admins here are largely inactive and show up to block me because of some type of off-wiki communication. The implication being that they were doing something else, so blocking me is a distraction from that. This is it for me tonight because, although there are numerous proxies, I still don't want to use them all too fast. See you later, enjoy 24. (Is the new season any good? I lost interest after the season with Jack rescuing his nephew towards the end.)Anvil 03:07, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
We're laughing at your feeble attempts at vandalism in an IRC channel. The only thing you're preventing admins from doing is having a life, and most of them have no desire to do that either. ~Shard User Shard Sig Icon.png 03:09, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
"The only thing you're preventing admins from doing is having a life, and most of them have no desire to do that either." Are you sure you don't want to reword that? You're proving my point. Anvil 03:10, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
@ shard, OI!!!! I've got no come back due to the validity of what Shard just said, but still no need to broadcast our collective lack of lives. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 03:12, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
@Anvil (or whatever hes calling himself at the mo) You aren't really distracting us. We just do this to entertain ourselves and your attempts at epeening yourself through the trivia is mildly amusing. When one of us gets bored of it, another sysop will entertain ourselves with it for awhile. Thus you aren't distracting us from anything, you are an idle moment spent amusing ourselves, somewhat akin to when one aimlessly doodles on a page when bored. Welcome to being a human doodle. :) -- Salome User salome sig2.png 03:17, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Perhaps. Either way, you provide entertainment. That was a good season; this one's trash. Arabs and Russians and nukes. I think we've done this before. Shame the series went downhill, pretty sure this is the least season. By the way, can you vandalize on that account so my reason for banning can be (BANHAMMER TO THE ANVIL)? calor (talk) 03:28, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Wikichu is not affected by anything. poke | talk 13:17, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
For future reference the Trivia Vandal is reffered to As Mister71. And forgive me if im breaching NPA but ive come up with a formula

Lots of boredom+ Vandalisation+ Delight in watching others clean up his mess = Baby? Cuz thats mostly what babies do where im from. They write on stuff with crayon and poop so that others have to clean it up. Just food for thought. -- 14:08, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

That's why you teach a baby not to do things. You don't let them write with a crayon, but play with harmless stuff. You teach them to potty train. It's how you start teaching them to learn and behave. Perhaps take a page from that to learn that what you do is not helpful and the bans are your whippings? Usually babies stop when they are spanked, but what about an adult who can find better amusement and have things to do to not be bored? KaishaUser Kaisha Sig.png 15:27, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
O.O I am not mister71. Im briar in disguise. But if you havent figured that out yet your probably not paying attention and dont care. Point is, Im not the trivia vandal. :P 15:29, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Lol, but see that's what I think towards the vandal. If he can't learn that being as he does, isn't going to get anywhere; He'll be banned until all those proxy ips are permabanned and some other users can't use them at work, etc., for actual contributing things. See he should acknowledge this and respect others, but he won't and so he misbehaves and gets banned. It's not going to help anything, but what would and could one do? Do what's been done and it'll stop, when all those ips are banned and others aren't able to participate and lack of ways to contact. You'd need a real account with email set to email anyone, to get unbanned or find them in other ways some how, and explain the situation, etc. KaishaUser Kaisha Sig.png 15:42, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Well a solution to this problem might be to simply revoke the ability of anyone with a non-Verified Log-in. I dont like the idea of doing that but it may be whats necessary. =/ Just throwing it out there as a possiblity. 15:46, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Not even close to a reasonable solution. -- FreedomBoundUser Freedom Bound Sig.png 15:50, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Hey there[edit]

Hey I am working on a 3D mmorpg wiki and i am just woundering how do you capture the animations and turn them into gif's?
I was thinking about making a complex code with a 3D model viewer and having that for each template... ummm...
Ill non wiki a example...
{{Monster |image= |level= |gold= |rep= |exp= |hp= |mp= |diff= (stars) |EquipList= |questitem= |loc= |notes= (optional) }}
this is a basic monster template in a wiki, and i want to swap images out for a model viewer...
would you suggest using a gif or a model viewer?
thanks alot,
--ChrysusAE (talk) 09:35, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Hey, I doubt Calor will reply to you, so I’ll just answer this for him. We had a project going on for the skill animations; you can see some details on how to record and convert the animations on the project page. In short, you would record a normal movie of the game, and then render it out to either a GIF directly or a image sequence which you then put together with a image tool that supports creating GIFs out of it.
An alternative to creating GIFs would be to record the animations with a GIF recorder directly, for example LICEcap. Note that some games do not support being recorded like that due to how they are painted by the graphics card. poke | talk 13:05, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
