For helping with User:Highlander. User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 00:53, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

No problems. I saw you were moving the pages and images so I thought I'd take care of the 'formal' stuff before more pages/images were created/uploaded. ~Celestia 01:44, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Test Krewe[edit]

"Because Fighterdoken speaks on behalf of the whole community and he's word is consensus?" <--Didn't you get the memo? :)

In any case, that discussion was quickly scalating beyond a "trying to find concensus" one, so just abandoning the ship and letting status quo remain seemed a good idea at that point.--Fighterdoken 23:08, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

You have to put it into context so I don't seem like a douche ;) That was in reply to "however when Fighterdoken commented, and with what he commented, (I felt that) there was no more need for a consensus to be reached". Anyway I wasn't against the initial move, just the part where it was done within such a short time frame (to be honest...if someone just did it without asking on the talk page/tagging, no one would of cared really) ~Celestia 01:10, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Arenanet image...[edit]

So I'm supposed to tag them as screenshots? I started out doing that, but this guy changed them to arenanet image: . So, what do I tag them? :P -- Chrono (talk) User Chrono007 sig.png 17:04, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Shouldn't it be {{ArenaNet image|item render}}? piper doesn't talk 17:25, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
I was told (somewhere, not sure where), that the screenshot tags are used for the renders that the users make as they aren't actually renders or something. The Anet renders are those that Emily provides, etc. Not sure if that is correct, but that's how most of the user renders from the NPC models project are tagged. I'll try and get some confirmation. ~Celestia 08:31, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
Here's a reply for the question. So yes, they are tagged as screenshots. ~Celestia 08:51, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
Alright thanks, screenshot it is -- Chrono (talk) User Chrono007 sig.png 14:11, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

I can give you the dye charts I did if you want them[edit]

There isn't a lot of space for text still, but maybe you can work something out if you want to try it? They are kinda huge in size each, but I can't really help that. If some don't show actual images, they have that linked to image clicked thing which I totally didn't notice, it shouldn't affect it anyways. Previously Unsigned 22:52, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Here is a link: Previously Unsigned 01:43, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
It's fine but thank you. If I was going to do them (time permitted) then I could just grab the armor sets off my characters, and I would do the sets that don't have a dye chart first. Thanks once again though. ~Celestia 06:13, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Speaking of Dye Charts[edit]

Do you have any for Male Monk Primeval armor in black? Kaisha User Kaisha Sig.png 23:17, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

No, I only have what I uploaded, which isn't very much. Some male mesmer charts mostly (I'd haev more but I only have one Pve character). You can do a bunch by just creating pvp characters and dying those but since I don't do "real" black and white, it takes me forever. Previously Unsigned 00:19, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
Just take an image of each dyed part and layer them. That's what I do. Previously Unsigned 00:44, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
Not sure whether you were directing the comment at me or Previous, but I can get you a pic of it, if you want. If you tell me (or show me) what your monk's looks like [face, skin, height, etc.] (there's no character screenshots on your page), I'll get a picture of "your monk" wearing it. Not sure when I'll be able to get it up though, depends how much time I have spare. That way it's better to judge what your monk will look like in the set...Yuck, monk primeval... ~Celestia 06:13, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
Lol I love that monk armor. I'd have that. And norn. Previously Unsigned 08:21, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
You sir disgust me. ~Celestia 01:38, 11 February 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for the revert, I actually missed the key word "it" when I canceled the previous person's notes. I took it to read as the crown didn't show :S 07:57, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

No problem, the note is actually quite poorly written and should be about all hair and not just long hair anyway. Better change that. ~Celestia 01:38, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

your userpage[edit]

is quite awesome. are you a Web designer by trade? Vili 点 User talk:Vili 08:24, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. No I'm actually in Uni studying teaching, but also a part time photographer. If you need any Photoshop work done just give me a buzz. Just curious too, is their some kind of special hidden code in your posts that make your character spacing larger than other people? Been wondering for a while now, but never asked >< ~Celestia 01:38, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Also sir, did you want to transpare-arise your sig so there's no white background? *looks at your talk page* ~Celestia 01:53, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes please, thank you –User Balistic Pve B d-dark.jpgalistic 01:56, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Awesome, thanks! –User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 02:03, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Twas just about to post on your page (was testing it to see how it looked). There's two versions I uploaded, one with no extra space and one with extra space. Wasn't sure if the space was there for a reason, so if it isn't just revert. File name is File:User Balistic B d-dark.png is you didn't know (which appears you do). ~Celestia 02:05, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Your mission maps are awesome. ^^ –User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 23:31, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

What should i put to Jagged Reaver's dye description? - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 06:06, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

"Yes Yes Fix dye chart- correct labels and pictures"? Whatever you think :P ~Celestia 06:10, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Your maps[edit]

They look very nice :) - Mini Me talk 15:00, 19 February 2010

Thank you :) ~Celestia 15:03, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Your maps are AWESOME. Seriously, not only are they 100 times more useful, they're actually nice to look at too :) this is one very happy Chibot2000

Thank you- if you have any requests, just drop a line and I'll see what I can russle up. ~Celestia 09:19, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
If you have some time free, could you do some of the Prophecies mission maps please? Elona Reach is looking particularly horrific xD Chibot2000 10:22, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
No!!! Elona Reach Prophecies is are such a boring mission...But fine! ~Celestia 10:25, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Aha thanks very much. I know I hated it too and I did it for the first time last week and was looking at the map and it took me a while to see what was going on :P Chibot2000 11:43, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Psychic! I just finished it...Not my best, but as a wise farmer once said "That'll do pig, that'll do". ~Celestia 11:44, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Ah much better thank you very much :) Yeah being psychic is pretty useful, but its combated by my insanely slow internet here at college :P Chibot2000 12:51, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

The Anti-Climax[edit]

After seeing your "farfetched #83" comment here, I came racing to your user page to find the other 82... I was disappointed... I think you're down to a 9.5/10, or so, on my list. G R E E N E R 02:55, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Dear sir, I sincerely apologise for disappointing you. Hopefully I can make up the 0.5 I have lost. ~Celestia 10:04, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Bah, I'm easily bought. A simple smile and I'll restore your status ; ) G R E E N E R 06:37, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Smiling is for the weak! ~Celestia 06:38, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Then you might have to be happy with your 9.2/10 for a while, missy! (Yes, I just used that word, and yes, I'm looking over my shoulder) G R E E N E R 06:49, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

Could you upload this again?[edit]

Gray is labeled twice. The first one should say Silver. - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 09:42, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

I like that layout, too. At first it looks like a copy/past/crop(not necessarily in that order) job, but then you see the links. Very nice. --Ravencroft0 01:57, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Hey (:[edit]

what font did you use?User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 00:00, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Font: Bookman Old Style, Font style: Regular, Anti-aliasing: Crisp, Vertical Scale: 90% and Kerning: Metric (and sometimes adjusted manually)...Not the exact same as in game, but it'll pass. ~Celestia 05:42, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Is it the same font you use for your user page? –User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 06:04, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Oh and what image editor are you using (I don't see vertical scale or kerning on GIMP) –User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 06:07, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
No the font for my userpage is different. I'm not even sure what it is (on the PHD which I cannot find right now)- looks like Cooper Black for the headings and Constantia for the text but not sure without the file. And I'm using Photoshop CS3 Extended at the moment. ~Celestia 06:32, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Also kerning shouldn't really matter but the vertical height made it more in-game looking (the font was too tall). ~Celestia 06:33, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Your userpage looks awesome btw :) –User Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 06:38, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Thank you :) (you did the smiley^ the right way then). Oh the font on my userpage is Chaparral Pro, VS: 100%, Anti-aliasing: Strong, Style: Regular. ~Celestia 06:50, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

(Reset indent) you forgot the legend :PUser Balistic B d-dark.pngalistic 15:15, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

I'm getting lazy so I just create the maps. I'll do the legends when I can be bothered :P Have any ideas for priorities for mission maps? Start EotN? Finish Factions or Nightfall? Scratch the surface of Prophecies? Have a roll in the BMP? The choices consume me! ~Celestia 08:46, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Guild Wars Wiki:Talk pages[edit]

"Removal of talk page content - Users may not remove comments (wholly or partially) from any talk page, with the following exceptions: Removal of clear vandalism and spam. " - Reanimated X 06:59, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

While it may be spam it may be, but most likely not, a legitimate message for Ryuu. If Ryuu considers it spam, on his/her page, then remove it. It's like the wtf chain, that is all spam but are you removing that? It's not like some gibberbot, or a bot posting link to external websites. ~Celestia 07:03, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
I spent an hour making that :< I did it to cheer Ryuu up--/ u /nendingfear 19x19px 02:00, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
Well it looks like it's been reverted again. I'm not going to break policy to put it back so bleh. Personally I would of gone with the Piplup. ~Celestia 02:02, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
Contrary to popular belief, the talk page on a wiki isn't a user's personal space where they can do whatever they want to do. Policy still applies there, and talk page content isn't owned by anyone except by the wiki. The wiki "is not a blog, webspace provider, or social networking site" (quoting from the wiki); and UF's edit qualified as unrelated content. There are TONS of other things on many people's user pages and talk pages that have unrelated content, but it is not nearly as intrusive as UF's edit. --Lania ElderfireUser Lania Elderfire pinkribbon.jpg 03:32, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
Agreed. I understand both sides, but it being "clear spam". It should be removed as well as other "clear spam". UF could have done it in a way to not have made it so bad. Kaisha User Kaisha Sig.png 05:13, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

Hey there, thanks for cleaning up my mess with the Margonite Scout articles. I have very little idea about proper formatting, but I wanted to make the articles for those monsters, so I ended up copy pasting from another article. Again, thanks for reworking them! Swordfish56 16:35, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Dismantle & Obey![edit]

I'm more of a Dismantle/Pro-Shining Blade person. The White Mantle seem to have attacked and vandalised my page. Believe me, I'm trying as hard as I can to remove it. I am just hoping that the Shining Blade don't vandalise the vandalise (=P).

So yeh, pretty much, if you can create something abotu the dismantle to go over the obey, that'd be sweet, thanks. Take your time, too. I plan on leaving the Obey up for a while (a couple days at least). Cheers! ^_^ -- My Talk Lacky 12:59, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Hehe. ^_^ You don't have to worry about Vandalising for me/TSB, I will probably set up a new secret quest for pages thing like I did with my current Obey/WM one. XD Try to figure it out. =P -- My Talk Lacky 13:30, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

^That was according to this, no need for the sic. -- My Talk Lacky 14:30, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Well it appears like that in that image too. And yes there is a need for the sic. Notice there is no space between the sentences? ~Celestia 14:34, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
Yeh, I did notice that, so why not just take the spaces out? I'm not sure what the sic is for really, apart from something like it's there if it's unusual spelling or something...but this isn't spelling, just grammar. -- My Talk Lacky 14:39, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
Yes and that is why the [sic] is there. The text is meant to be copied verbatim, exactly as it appears in-game. The dialogue has those errors in it. The dialogue is written in the article, verbatim, and so has errors in it. Sic acknowledges that the passage has errors in it, because it is verbatim to the text that appears in game. ~Celestia 14:43, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
Ahh I get you now...had to re-read that several times but I understand. =P Thanks for that. I will add them back in then (unless they already are, haven't checked yet). -- My Talk Lacky 17:23, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

question before I edit[edit]

Do you mind if I go through Guild Wars Wiki:Projects/Dye charts and slightly edit the tutorial/guidelines? I won't be adding anything big, I just want to maybe colorize the order of colors and switch the save method 1 and 2, since if somebody has Photoshop, they should be using SFW first (more flexible and with the preview). Also a quick note to turn off the convert to sRGB option since it's on by default. Like I said, mostly minor. Previously Unsigned 04:29, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Actually, it looks like you haven't been here for 3 days, so I'll go ahead and do what I want anyways. It should be ok. Previously Unsigned 09:23, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Knock yourself out. It's a wiki, so it's not my page and free to be edited. ~Celestia 13:41, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Well it was a project page and you created it, plus I don't think guidelines or tutorials are probably the best to touch. I still don't see why we can't add Photoshop pictures. Will it really violate copyright? Previously Unsigned 13:47, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Yes. Don't worry, you didn't go through the process of SS the steps only to have them deleted for copyvio ;) Anyway back off the grid. ~Celestia 13:50, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Excellent map for Mungri Magicbox route! How did you do that? Did you follow Mungri and then change the color of the dots on his (your) route? Very nice and much improved to also show route out of House zu Heltzer. Sjhshh 17:07, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Apologies, Sjhshh. Thanks! I must have missed this comment somehow. Sometimes I change the colour over the original dots but mainly I simply just layer the dots over a screenshot of the map. In the case of Mungri, I think I followed him and recoloured the dots. ~Celestia 10:57, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Tagging unsigned comments[edit]

Hi, you uploaded a dye char for an Air Wand. I'd like to know where you got the wand, because the ones I've gotten so far can't be dyed. Tried prophs collector, EotN Cafter, EotN collector. None of them dyed (all blue). Maybe golds can dye? --Kristofferus 06:32, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
