Haven't had a message in over a year. Here's one now. ThrainFile:User Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 15:24, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

lol probably because I get moaned at on the talk pages of the pages I wrongly add new weapon iconry to ^^ --File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 15:24, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
No matter. No one should have a stale talk page. That's worse than having a blank one! ThrainFile:User Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 15:27, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
And its an especially boring day today with two desirable outcomes:
  • Either get a few more characters upto the Remains of Sahlajah
  • Or leave my drunkard in peace on the 9-rings.

--File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 15:34, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Drunkard, definitely. You can do Campaigns any-day. ThrainFile:User Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 15:36, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Dye Charts

how much are you compressing your dye charts? I can see some artifacts but most would say it's nitpicking. Previously Unsigned 12:53, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

I guess I shrink them by 15% when resizing to fit them into the A4 document to arrange them/align them. Otherwise they're the size they were taken at. --File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 13:03, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Since the one you were looking at was jade wand fair enough - but I think the ones I uploaded this morning were fine? [ Plagueborn hornbow, sword & maul. ] --File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 13:09, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Actually I meant those ones that I saw uploaded today lol. Look around the text and edges of everything to see what I mean. Might have to zoom in. Previously Unsigned 13:21, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
I have no idea how to fix that. Would you prefer unlablled high res screenshots instead?--File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 13:22, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Are you taking bitmap images? What program are you saving them in? I wrote a small a thing about this on my user page: you need to find the safe for web option so you can compress and compare better. GIMP has one and its' built into Photoshop. I am looking for ATM. Previously Unsigned 13:31, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Currently my process is:

  • Run gw.exe -bmp
  • Change graphics settings on gw to high, larger UI, Anti aliasing & post processing on
  • Take the shots
  • Use MS Picture manager to crop all 12 images at once
  • Paste them all into powerpoint, arrange them and resize so that 20pt font looks roughly the correct size.
  • Group the lot.
  • Right click - save as jpg.
  • Crop 2px off each side to remove auto white border.
  • Upload. --File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 13:34, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
I would highly recommend you use a proper image software (i.e. not powerpoint). There are some good ones on the net that can be found for free (such as GIMP). Also turn off post-processing effect. ~Celestia 13:39, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
We have esp - right before I was gonna post you did! In addition image size isn't a big deal since most don't print these and if they did they could let their printer handle sizing. I always zoom to 200/300 percent when looking for artifacts too. The fine details do matter IMO. Oh yeah have tips on my page too. Previously Unsigned 13:43, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
No This user wishes the Dye Mobsters would stop bothering him.

Fair enough ^^--File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 14:14, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

File:Shining Blade Ally summon group.jpg

That could have been easily done without uploading a new image. - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 15:35, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

I couldn't figure the coding for putting more than one picture ontop of the same infobox... I tried
| image = Shining Blade caster.jpg
| image2 = Shining Blade ranger.jpg
| image3 = Shining Blade warrior.jpg

and obviously that didn't work. might as well delete the conglomoration picture though. --File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 14:07, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

thats one god damn ugly formatting technique ;o --File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 17:06, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
I know very little of wikis/coding, except what I get through trial and error or reverts. G R E E N E R 17:07, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

troll box

Kiss your mother with that mouth?

Last I checked, profanity was strongly discouraged on this site. You effed that one up, thus proving we all make mistakes. 17:43, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

tbh i could have removed your comment seeing as the contest closed about 3 years ago. go figure i did you a favour, if you feel like trolling me, I decline such offers. --File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 17:48, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
Tbh, I would have reposted it since several of Halogod's contests were still receiving input after they were closed. They're not archives and they're part of Halogod's userspace, so you don't really have a say in what belongs there unless he specifically gives you such authority. Go figure you fixed a typo but still broke protocol. If I wanted to troll you, I'd submit unnecessary profanity where it doesn't belong. Ironic. 18:19, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
I don't want to get into a pissing contest. Thank you for fixing my typo. I found the commentary with which you did so to be quite rude and unnecessary. I'm not asking for an apology, since we both know that isn't going to happen. Just, in the future, understand that everyone makes mistakes and mocking those mistakes is, more or less, trolling. If left alone, it tends to produce wasteful moments like this. Do you really want to spend your time bickering with me? I doubt it. So, let's just call it even. 18:54, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

Your recent anti-vandalistic edit used an epithet inappropriate to this wiki. If you really must curse, please try terms such as douche or asswipe or even motherfucker. Using inflammable words can easily generate the type of drama that you try to avoid/prevent/reduce. Thanks. – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 14:40, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
