A Place for Fond Memories[edit]

I wanted to have a little page on which I could tuck some memories of the kind goodbye messages, the unforgettable Farewell Party, birthday and holiday greetings, and so forth. Thanks to all who post notes, send me an in-game message, or who chatted with me during the party or during events, then and now.

I'm active on my user page and I'll keep in touch on my Journal, from time to time, too. You can count on help with many kinds of issues and concerns of a support nature on the Support Issues page. I hope to continue to hear from you often, for I'm still in the game a lot, and on the wiki daily. :)

Thanks Gaile[edit]

Thanks Gaile for all the work you did as a community manager! I was pretty shocked when I read this latest news, but I just wanted to say, I'll miss your appearances a lot! I was fortunate enough to meet you once in Paris and you've always amazed me with your answers and patience here on wiki. I hope the new job at A'net will supply you with a lot of the excitement you want. You've truly been a person I looked up to (and of course I will still do so ^^). I missed your appearance last night, but I will surely be there this weekend on the party! THANKS for all your great work Gaile! Respect! --User Tribina base.png (Tribina / talk) 18:09, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

I concur. You've been a great community manager! I hope you do get more non-work quality time out of the change. I am a little confused as to what exactly will be different about the job, but I guess that will be apparent as we go along. Hopefully you give the person trying to fill your gigantic shoes some tips... --Ravious 18:12, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
And tomorow they are saying 1 april?(she will stay as or community GM, but the events will go on however):D Death Slighertalk: Death Sligher 18:18, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Gaile, you done a great job as community manager. Shock went trough me when I heard it. We'll miss the lvl 7 ranger in the main outposts of guildwars, helping her with r2 sweet tooth. I wish you all the best of luck with your new job! Elder 18:27, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Words cannot express our thanks for all you've done for the community Gaile. We are glad you are remaining with ArenaNet in a different role, and we wish you the best of luck with that. As CRM, you will be missed a great deal. Nbajammer User Nbajammer sig.png 18:35, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Phew, when at first I read that it was time for you to move on, I thought you were leaving Anet, but I'm glad its just for a new role inside Anet. Wish u the best of luck, although yeah we're all gonna miss your meetings and your congas. ^^. --MageMontu 18:42, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for all your devotion and time, Gaile. And don't forget to hand over some of that huge portion of patience to the one having your job ;) - anja talk 18:45, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Will you still come and visit the events please. --Fox007 User:Fox007 19:01, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Well, it is the 1st in some parts of the world already, but I can't imagine this being a joke. Anyway, grats on the new position, Gaile. I don't fully understand the position or the huge "farewell" if you're not actually leaving ANet, but, I'll accept the event. :D Clobimon Craiggy 19:59, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

See you around, Gaile. I may not have agreed with the way you handled your position all the time, but I admire and respect the amount of time and effort you dedicated to the players of Guild Wars. This is a sad day for the PvE community; your presence will be missed. Conga on, Gaile. Conga on. -Faer 20:17, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

I wish you the best in your new position and I just want to let you know we will miss getting news about GW from you but I hope to see you in game. Does this mean no more Conga lines :( -- Natalie Black User NatalieBlack sig.jpg 20:31, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for answering all my silly questions, you have the patience of a saint Jamnog 20:33, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

from me, too, a huge, nice "THANK YOU" for everything you've done for us! - Y0_ich_halt Have a look at my page 20:36, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

I hope Gaile that your new role as support won't flood you more then you are! :) Have fun! Dominator Matrix 20:39, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Awww, I read the news, and while the PvE community is sure going to miss you, I'm sure you'll enjoy your new job (not to mention the extra time for yourself). Thanks for everything you've done, Gaile, and don't be a stranger in-game, y'hear? :D Kokuou 20:44, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Gaile! I'm glad to see you're at least sticking with the GW community; you have helped it make great strides! It may not be possible with your shift, but try to pop by the int. districts for a visit. I know the entire community (myself included) will miss you :P --User-Wandering Traveler Sig.png Wandering Traveler 21:09, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

BYE GAILE!!! You've been the best CRM we could have asked for, always answering as many questions as possible in an understanding and polite manner, and doing your best to make Guild Wars the AWESOME KICK-ASS game that it is today. Love always-- MP47 (Talk) (Contr.) 00:44, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Gaile all the best with the new position and thanks for all the work you have put into Guild Wars i also agree with all the people above me Good luck p.s i wasnt logged in opps--Wild rituals 04:58, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanx a lot for everything you have done! The way you talked and related to the community is an example for a lot of people. It is a shame to not hunt down the major cities when i see your name online; but i wish you all the best luck with your new job! Don't be a stranger and come and visit the guildhall of Mu-Tants one of these days (since you have a bit more spare time in-game now ;) ) -- Maya 06:58, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Bye Gaile, you've been great and I wish you all the best in your future endeavours. But does this mean I won't be able to chat with you again at this years GC in Leipzig? :( Arusha 08:08, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
this is alll lies its a april fools joke. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).
Maybe. But it doesn't really matter. Unless of course... that event is also a fake... -- User Sig.png 08:33, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
THANKYOU! It's been a great pleasure having you as a contact in the game, you have done an incredible job and the community is going to miss your presence enormously. How you managed to keep going this long with all that spam during your visits and criticisms in the forums is a measure of your patience and commitment, I still hope you will be attending events around the world or is my ambition of meeting you in RL and giving you a big hug doomed? At least if this gives you more time to enjoy the game please do come by the MU GH for a dwarven ale or two, I promise George won't bite--Evil Geek 08:35, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for everything you have done for GW so far, and good luck in your new role-- 08:54, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
THANKS GAILE for everything you have done - you have been a fantastic CRM! I wish you every success in the future (not just in that sweet tooth title! ^^ ) - User FirstSunspear icon.png FirstSunspear /// Talk 09:00, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Gaile, I just wanted to offer a very big and sincere THANK YOU! My son and I have been playing Guild Wars since it was released and have bought everything. My personal opinion is a game can ONLY be great if they closely monitor the pulse of the community. Since you are the finger on that pulse, you must have been doing a great job for a long time! Thank you for years of enjoyment from my son and I. I guess this means no more sitting around Lion's Arch waiting for words of wisdom from the wise frog. -Mighty Joe

THANKYOU! for all. Good luck for the future. (Sorry for my english, but i'm french and i have french for native language ;-)) PS: there is a bug with 1 April's event for create PvP objects (create only Ranger's objects) :) -- 18:05, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Thanks so much for all your kind words and warm wishes. Your thoughtfulness means a lot to me, and I look forward to continuing to chat with you on the GWW from time to time and to helping make Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 even better! <3 <3 -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 21:03, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Noooo!! it's all true! :( Gaile GL with your new job, and guys, Let's make this party a party Gaile will never EVER forget!

I'm just adding my thank you onto the growing list. In my opinion, you did a spectacular job bridging the community with the developers, and it added to the reasons why I continue to play this silly game after three years. I can only hope your successor can fill your shoes and that you fully enjoy your new position. Thanks again, and also best wishes for Guilda the 2nd :) --Thervold 21:35, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
Gaile, Congratulations on your promotion. And also are you still going to be on guild wars? And are you going to play all the Anet games?☺☻-- Ninja Dragon User Ninja Dragon sig.png 00:10, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Gaile! I'm having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that you're moving :( ... Good luck! And keep in touch! -- Frozzen User:Frozzen 03:09, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Well...what's that they say? All good things come to an end? I always hoped that I might meet you once in-game, and now that hope's shattered to pieces...but thank you very much for your work nevertheless! I read the news about you leaving, logged into GW...and realized, that my oldest still exsistig character was actually created on April 1st! Quite ironic, though...having my first char becoming 1 year old, and hearing that you leave in about the same instant...quite sad... but good luck in your new position, Gaile, and there's hope I'll meet your successor one day - there has to be one, hasn't it? And, your farewell party has one good thing - after a quite long break in GW, only interrupted by wanting to find out what the April Fool's joke is this year, I'll be back for the party! Well, that's my British half says "tally ho, and good luck", while the German part of me says "Lebewohl und Alles Gute!" --Aquila Noctis 18:28, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
I don't know if you received my small email i sent you but i would like to say thank you a lot for all your hard work, time, patience and devotion you have spent to help GW to become what it is now and all the positive energy you've breathed into the community. I just hope you'll have fun and wish you all the best to you for the future, no matter where you are. Merci encore Gaile ! Davor Belegnaur 19:09, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

(Reset indent) I really can't tell you how much I appreciate these kind messages and supportive comments. Thanks, guys. You mean the world to me. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 04:13, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

I came online, saw via my friendlist that you were online too, and I wanted to go to LA international 1...but it was sadly I can't say goodbye to you in person :( - Or are you coming to the other frstival towns as well? But please tell me not at some time in dead night at my place ;) --Aquila Noctis 19:22, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
I am sorry that I missed you, Aquila Noctis. I do appreciate your warm regard, and hopefully we'll meet up in the game sometime in the future. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 02:37, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
Never mind that one time, another occasion this WE I was in LA when you visited, and in the right district - but for some reason I left the second you arrived...shame on me....But I got back in in time to say goodbye in person ;) Now I hope that you'll be able to help many players with their problems in your new position - and I actually hope that I'll never again need help from ANet support (not that support help doesn't's just that I won't have any problems support needs to fix for me ;)) --Aquila Noctis 14:19, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi Gaile![edit]

Hello, I don't really have anything terribly important to say. I just wanted to say hi and thank you for your efforts given to this game. If this message is taking up space you can just remove it after you read.

I don't think anyone in GW doesn't know your name or who you are! Despite this i was never sure what kind of person you were. I have had my fair share of complaints about Anet and their decisions, and I will admit, about the amount of attention you get, but I realize now that you're a pretty cool person (I guess i was just jealous)! I find myself checking the wiki every now and then to see what you or the frog has spoken of in game. I had the honor of seeing you once a while ago and Mr. Frog answered one of my questions a much longer time ago. Today I went ahead and read this page of yours and I'm impressed! I collect bows as well and I have a small collection of miniatures. I think I prefer hoarding axes and swords, though :) BTW, that bit about pointing out the typos on your contract, pretty bad ass :P

Anyway, you're a cool person in my opinion and I appreciate the touch you have left upon this game (because really, what other games have staff that are so involved with not just the game but their players)! I'm sure you don't need any more praise than you already receive, but I will say it anyway: You go girl! I wish you well on whatever endeavors lie ahead of you now!

Now that I'm done sucking up, bake me a cookie, please? Or a brownie? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

Hi Gaile, I only met you once or twice in the game, but I admire you for being so loyal to the guildwars population and to your company. Thank you not just for me but for the whole guildwars community. I will try to be online this weekend for an appropriate
good bye. Keep up the good work and I hope you'll find your new position at ArenaNet as rewarding. Take Care.
Of course we will see you online and probably in GW2(beta) as well :) user: skald
Thanks so very much. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 04:15, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi gaile, just here to say goodbye, and thanks for all your work, you're the best!! I will miss you :(. Tidus532

Gaile Gray[edit]

Dear Gaile, I was sorry to hear that you were leaving you're post as Community Relations Manager. You will be missed. I would like to take this oppurtunity, on behalf of me and the whole GW community, to thank you for all the hard work you have done to help all the community playing Guild Wars. You have been a great help to me. I look forward to the party this weekend, it sounds fun. Hopefully my disco will be better next week.

By the way, what Bunny is arriving with the Frog during the Weekend?

Thank a million,

Burning Freebies/Prepare To Burn, Devoted fan of Gaile Gray --Burning Freebies 21:05, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Re the bunny- Gaile and the Frog refer to the rabbit from Pre-Searing during their visits occasionally (supposedly the Frog and the Rabbit play poker together); I suspect that's the bunny in question.
And though I already said it over on GWO, thanks for your years of work as CR and good luck in your new position. 22:56, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
I think a little bit of the love I had twords guild wars just died in me. :( You were the one that made fansite interaction fun in Guild Wars, you'll be missed.

Calvin 02:14, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Wait wait wait wait...Is Gaile Gray leaving GW community? O.o

Yeah, maybe you should check GW official site more often ;)

I have this feeling that Bunny will replace Frog coz I have some suspicions that Frog will dissapear after Gaile leaves. Am I correct or terribly wrong? :)Spirit Of The Linx 14:45, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Nah, Bunny is making a one-time-only appearance. You'll know more this weekend. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 23:51, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Lookin forward to it ^^ I have still one question left for the upcoming party. Don't know weather if you can tell something about it. (please tell me you can...) Should you collect fireworks for the 'event' to get something élse from bunny or frog or another hedgehogbeast? Or do you GET fireworks and stuff for other 'trophees' you must collect?Malificent Nameless One Of Mansalya 18:56, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

I think I can answer part of this: There will be random drops of Sparklers, Bottle Rockets, and Poppers throughout the game. There will also be collectors in Lion's Arch, Shing Jea Monastery, and Kamadan that will trade certain collectible items for party goods. Which collectibles will they accept? That is the part I don't really know. :-/ However, I am certain that our good wiki community will put up a page and provide that information as soon as the event starts. I hope to see everyone this weekend, as the party sounds just wonderful. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 17:44, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, Can't Accept It.[edit]

April Fool's days are so grave sometimes. 08:53, 1 April 2008 (UTC) Muha. I can't stop smiling at all the people saying thank you and being sorry you're 'leaving' (: You guys did a good job this time! 14:57, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

I can't and won't tell you how, but I can 100% confirm this is not an April Fool's joke. Vael Victus 16:21, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
If it isn't an April Fool's joke then announcing around this time wasn't exactly the greatest moment to do so (in my opinion) InvdrFlame 19:48, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
I can just picture Gaile running in circles in ToB yelling out "lolololololol pwnt pwnt pwnt pwnt pwnt!"--Ohnoes 00:26, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Your New Function[edit]

I hope we'll see you again in-game Gaile! Little note: the 7th April is my birthday, kinda funny that it's the day that you start with your new function... hope you like your new function, and we guys will miss you if we don't see you (as often) or if the Frog doesn't come online anymore...

Hope everything will be well Gaile! Especially on your new endeavors. We now don't have someone to bug, I wonder who shall be your successor. hahaha! Renin 12:13, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
I'll admit: the timing seems a bit too good. April Fool's Day you know. We'll see. Dragnmn talk cont 14:19, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
What is she doing now? 14:22, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Moving to support, lesser stress load for her. I don't think it's a hoax since the announcement in the Guild Wars website was posted March 31 NOT April 1. Renin 14:25, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Still seems a bit too bad to be true though. If it's true: good luck with your new job Gaile. If it's not: you had better jokes. Dragnmn talk cont 14:31, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Better jokes? I think this one's capital. Well organized, but the wiki entry is too much of a giveaway. C'mon- "Arenanet Support Liaison"(No dis to those people, by the way) because you want to "help people"? That's just too transparent! Alter it nao! Make up a better story! 15:01, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
She's moving to Support? Lesser stress load? We're talking about Support aren't we... sounds more stressful... Are we talking about the same Support aren't we? Man, this has gotta be a joke 18:34, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

It is hard to imagine Guild Wars without our well-appreciated community people-person! I can honestly say that you will truly be missed. It will be hard to adapt to whoever is taking your place, if anyone. "Here's to a bright and happy future!" Ranger-icon-small.pngBlackie ewilson92 23:56, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks to everyone for your sweet thoughts. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 17:45, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Gaile, you will be sorely missed but it seems you're staying on the team in some other capability - I'm glad for that. I wonder who will replace you... if there will be a new CR person? Anyway I wish you utmost best! I still have your ivory bow btw. – User Barinthus Magical Compass.png Barinthus 18:14, 5 April 2008 (UTC)


Thanks Gaile, for al the good and clear information you have given us in all these years. Your work her was fantastic. I hope that you had a good time here and that you have a good time on your next job.

Thanks for everything

gonna miss ya gaile :( always wanted to attend one of your frog talks but never found out when/where they are /cry well anyway.. do you ever go in game as Gaile Gray? I really wanna talk to you :) -- 15:19, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
It's awesome how many people don't look at the calender. --Hawk SkeerAssassin Symbol(Talk) 15:25, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
I really doubt that this is a faked announment because of april fools day. Anet made the announcment on their website and this event was announced. - User FirstSunspear icon.png FirstSunspear /// Talk 15:29, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Yeah definitely, it was great to talk to you and stuff Gaile. I have absolutely no doubt that the new community manager will be great also. Vael Victus 16:22, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

You'll Be Missed![edit]

Wow, so this is my first time ever contributing to the wiki in some way. I hope I'm doing this right... *crosses fingers*

I hope you're happy with your new position :) You deserve it after all of these years of hard work. Make sure whoever fills your spot knows what they're doing ;) We can't have a crappy replacement :P You've spoiled us way too much to do that! --Dren t 16:38, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

You'll definitely be missed, Gaile. Not only because you put so much effort in your job, but also for the person you are. I've never seen you angry or short worded, or negative at all in any way, and IMO, that's just as important as being devoted to your work. So yes, you'll definitely be missed. I never said anything more than a simple 'Hello!' to you, but when I saw you were online I abandoned whatever I was doing to look for you. I was sad when I read your message, and up til now I had hope it was an April Fools' joke, but it doesn't seem like it anymore. On the other hand, I'm very happy you got another job you also like. So thank you Gaile, thank you so much for anything you've done for us in the past years. I'm so grateful, and I honestly appreciate everything you did for the community. Best of luck, and Community Relations Manager or Support Liaison, I hope to see you in game soon again. - Ru Yi (Yumiya 21:59, 1 April 2008 (UTC))

You'd think, if she was leaving...[edit]

And it'd already been announced she would have gotten around to putting it up on her user page... I mean, the last time she edited her own page was 2 minutes before the "oh my god she's leaving..." discussions. Wouldn't you think, seeing as its quite an important thing for her, more than anyone else, she would have put it up? Just a thought... 01:57, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Nevermind, my browser cut off the bottom of her page, didn't see it at the bottom 01:59, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
Real sorry about that. I will be reformatting my page next week so that I have a totally separate tab for my Journal. That'll make things much easier to find, I think. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 03:27, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Thank You for All Your Time[edit]

I would just like to say a big thank you for all the work and time you have put in to helping many players out like my self. over 3 years ago now i e-mailed you asking for help to get some beta keys for my friends and you sent me them now a long way down the line we are still playing and looking forward to GW2 best way to say how much i love this game as by the 4 acc's that I play and the hours i have spent playing well over 6k hours just on one of the acc's (I must get a life lol) any way thank you once more for the work and time you have put in and all the very best in your new job with a/net.

ps Sad to say I never got to chat or to see you in game.

all the best from

True Arrow San

Hello! I was reading your page and I registered GWW just to post here. I have some suggestions to make and I think that is the ArenaNet team takes the player's oppinions in consideration, that can only benefit the game.
To start, I'd like to ask you if there's a possibility to create a Portuguese District, since there are a lot of portuguese players (and yes, I say this because I am portuguese, lol, but I have found many of my country playing and lots of them don't go very well with english so I think it would be a good idea...).
About GW2, I would only like to say one thing. Though I have to admit that heroes come in really handy, a lot of the GW's community spirit was lost with them. Now you can solo pass a campaign without that "lfg mission". I hate playing by myself, but people mostly don't need human players anymore. So I'm not saying to kick the heroes out of GW (that would be very controverse), but I started playing with the first GW and I really learned how to play and I love it. What I sense is that now any n00b can finish the game. Maybe you've already been tld this, lol, sorry. About the rest I fully rely on your decisions.
Lastly, I'd just want to appologize for any incorrections, I am aware that my english isn't perfect, though I'm not bad at it.
Thanks for your time =) --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:They Stole My Wings (talk).
Hello. First I should start by saying "thank you" to Arrow San for your note and your kind words. Where are my manners!? :D Then, I would like to point out the Suggestions sections to Wing, because those would be a great place to put all your ideas about Guild Wars and/or Guild Wars 2. You can be assured that we do incorporate players' suggestions into the game, and that a lot of decisions are based on players' feedback. Thank you. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 00:01, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

In the Event...[edit]

that you really are changing jobs, it's sad to see such a dedicated, involved member of the A-Net staff leave this position. In the event that this is just a bad April Fools' joke,'s not funny D=! Srakin 21:21, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

It's not an april fools. Go to Aiiane's Talk page (Aiiane - talk - contribs) 23:51, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
that makes me sad....but gaile is staying within A-net or NCsoft? I heard something along those lines somewhere....I hope she is, if she's leaving completely I may have to do something terrible to my computer. *looks at double-barrel shotgun* >.< --User Wandering Traveler Oie User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 00:03, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Hey, thanks for the kind thoughts. I'm staying with ArenaNet as Support Liaison, which means I'll still be helping the community, just in a different way. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 00:58, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
YAY!!! *puts away shotgun*. I was hoping for this. Though you'll still be missed, I'm glad to see you're still staying with ArenaNet. --User Wandering Traveler Oie User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 03:29, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
What does a "Support Liaison" even do? — Eloc 06:48, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
The Support Liaison position is new, a "bridge," if you will, between our Support Team and the developers with an eye to helping players in the best way possible. Issues start with Support, of course. But if a player has a problem that our Support Team is unable to resolve, CS will bump it up to me, and I'll see if I can resolve it, or address the issue to the appropriate person at the studio to learn if there is a possible resolution. (Examples: An reported exploit or a possible technical issue that we've not learned about before.) I want to be sure to say that the position won't be about "Appeal to Gaile and she'll give you a 'Get out of jail' card." :)
I will post more when I update my User Page, as I can see there may be others who are curious about how all this will work. But bottom line is that I know I will be making a positive contribution for each and every one of you, sometimes as an individual player, sometimes for the community as a whole. Thanks for your nice thoughts, guys! -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 17:32, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
i will miss u gaile :P --Blood Anthem User Blood Anthem Sig.jpg 02:53, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Bye Gaile[edit]

Gaile, My IGN is Homie Star. You probably know me as the annoying person who PMs you every time you sign on before you can put your DND up. I just wanted to thank you for all your work as CRM and wish you luck in your new position. Hope to see you ingame as well from time to time. --Homie Star

It's never annoying to see a friendly message. Thanks for your note. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 07:25, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

My Wishes[edit]

Dear Gaile,

I wish you the best at your new job, I am quite unsure what your new job will be, I do hope we get to meet again...

By the many questions asked by alot of players you missed alot, which I understand completely... I'm even surprised you answered me at all :) ( I was the Elementalist in Obsidian armor dyed white ) from the [HUGS] guild, we met at 6:04:2008 at 8:50 GMT +1 :)

I wonder how does one become a Game Moderator? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Akela xeroxz (talk).

Good Luck[edit]

K you dont now me Gaile but good luck with your new job hope whe stil see you around ingame

greets from Kenyan Of Asgard --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Kenyan (talk).

Wanted to let you know that I went ahead and rushed so I could get Legendary Defender of Ascalon for my second character in your honor during the celebration! I managed to do it at exactly midnight EST last night.... congratulations on your new job!
Congratulations on the new title, and I'm very proud of your timing. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 07:26, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Farewell Event[edit]

I thought that the event was fun. I just got out of the one in Lions Arch, and I had some fun doing the ol' Conga line! I hope you do well at your new job there at arena net! :) The Cyphero 05:01, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

It was fun, despite the unholy lagging in an international district, which rarely happens! lol az :D 14:54, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Yea there was a bit of lag here and there, but for the most part it wasn't all that bad compaired to last wintersday :P lol 16:36, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Sorry forgot to log in O.O The Cyphero 16:37, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
I loved the event. I'll only be able to attend one or two more, but what fun they've been! :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 07:25, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Sigh I wish i could attend to the farewell party so I could say my last good bye to u gaile but on the first day I moved from Malta to Wales and couldn't attend. So sry for not joining you on your day but i'm sure it was alot of fun. Hope you have settled in your new position and hope to c your lavender text at least one more time in-game. --MageMontu 22:15, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, MageMontu, I am sorry that you missed the event, but goodness, being able to move to Wales is a wonderful thing, and I wish you sincere congratulations on that! (I love Wales!) I hope we'll see one another in the game sometime. In the meantime, all the best as you get settled. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 20:46, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
Why thanks Gaile and I agree, Wales is wonderful, but I'm extremely worried about all the sheep around, look at them, walking around eating grass, they're up to something. --MageMontu 22:55, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
I think some of that "pastoral movement" is plain ol' politicking. I heard one or two were thinking about making a run for a seat in Parliament. Of course, that may be just a rumour. ;) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 23:49, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
My thought is that they're trying to take over the world. but we r going a bit out off-topic here :P --MageMontu 22:07, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, you know, this page is often the home of the off-topic and the absurd. Don't let that get your goat. (Sorry, I couldn't resist. *cheesy grin* -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 02:53, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
Hey Gaile, hey Montu. I wasn't there either as with most weekend events, seeing that I work all weekends.. Though I'm saddened by you leaving the community area, though I'm sure you had your reasons. Nevertheless I should congratulate both of you (Montu and Gaile) as you've seen trough my secret plot for world domination using sheep.. T_T -Seylia Dragonstorm 11:28, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Have to agree with everyone. Good Luck to you Gaile! Even though we've disagreed a few times in the past, it's beyond doubt how much work and effort you invest into this community, thus I wish you all the happiness in your future endeavors and hope that you look back on your time as Community Relations Manager with joy. Blessed be! -- Salome User salome sig.png 02:01, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Oh, and thank the devs for us - that was an awesome send-off. Very cool.
Thanks for the notes, guys, they mean a lot to me. And yes, the devs outdid themselves -- it's a lovely party! -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 07:28, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
No, Gaile, you don't have to thank us. We are very pleased for your hard and kindly work through all these years. You did it with passion, we know that you love the game, and that is very, very important for the players. It is time for a new era. Anyway, I'll miss you on the forums. Will we have a video of the party event? Because I loved it, Frog Hip Hop FTW! --ReiNaruto 07:54, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

I was happy to see that you are like my self and otheres an old school d2 player But most of all i was happy at last to be in the same town as you at the same time for the last 3 years i have tryed to get into town with you and it's only now your leving that i made it. Good luck in your new post and may all your arrows fly true and hit the target.

all the best to you from this old gamer

Hi Gaile. Bye Gaile.[edit]

Your party items got my newly made perma-pre character very rich very quickly. For that, many thanks.- VanguardUser-VanguardAvatar.PNG 11:31, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

I need to say Bye Gaile too :( I'll miss you. Well I saw you on the Nightfall CE DVD :). Sorry if I writed/written (or what) bad the english words but I'm only learn english :) BB! I hope I'll see you somewhere :) Daviez 14:13, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
btw, does this also mean we'll never see the frog again and therefore gaile did actually control the frog at times? - Y0_ich_halt Have a look at my page 16:27, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Think so yeah. Since the event is about saying farewell to both Gaile and the Frog. - Yumiya 16:40, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
that's what i thought, but i'd like valid confirmation. - Y0_ich_halt Have a look at my page 16:47, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
You guys know that no one "controls" The Frog. :)
Simply put: Times change. You could say that talking animals and conga lines were part of my time. I dare say someday both will be seen as "old school" and hopelessly out of date. ;) (Or hey, maybe they'll both be looked back upon as "classic!" However, that's for players, and the passage of time, to say.) Anyway, with a whole new team community team, I'm sure they'll be coming up with their own great ideas as they begin their positions. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 17:49, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Frankly, I was just talking about the items. Never formed any kind of attachment to you, Gaile. Can't say I'm entirely heartbroken at your departure, but I do know you put many hours of service into GW and I think something will be effected.- VanguardUser-VanguardAvatar.PNG 18:36, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I made 100k from like 3 hours of farming/standing in town spamming emotes, so thanks--Ryudo 18:38, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Oh yes. It was a damn good weekend to make a permapre.- VanguardUser-VanguardAvatar.PNG 18:40, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Hi, Vanguard -- I was responding to Yo and Yumiya. Sorry for the confusion. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 22:06, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
But I hope, Gaile, that you maybe are allowed to come online some time for an old-school conga line :) You know, just because someone moved away, people still can come back to visit their old "home" :) poke | talk 23:44, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Hello and Welcome![edit]

I'd like to say welcome (back) to the GW community, (and your adoring fans ;-)) as our new Support Liason! I look forward to learning more about your new role as you create it, and to the wonderful new flavor of support that you'll be providing to the community. Knowing that you're still a part of everything Guild Wars is heartwarming, as I'll bet there are a lot of us who would agree that your care and personal touch have really shaped the game and all of us who play it into what they are today. Know that we'll always love you whether your text is lavender, white, or any other color of the rainbow!

Thanks for taking on the new challenge of supporting all of us in a different way, and I look forward to seeing you around! GenXer 17:14, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

What a lovely note! Truly, your words mean a lot, GenXer. I am looking forward to helping in any way that I can, both the Guild Wars and with Guild Wars 2. Thanks for your kindness. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 03:22, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Gaile for being there for us in-game, in forums, and on the wiki. Hopefully, with new responsabilities, you won't become a stranger. I'll be missing your enigmatic clues to upcoming features. -- Alaris_sig Alaris 19:06, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
It's always a pleasure to see you Reaper and Alaris and I'll definitely be around. It'll be more "behind the scenes," now, but that's ok. I'll be helping players and enjoying the game, two very good things!  :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 03:25, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
I thought Id wait for the furore to die down a little before saying my fare thee wells. I and many others in GWen will miss you dearly and send you all the best in your new position (and I'm very pleased we're not losing you completely from GWland). Lots of Love xxZilken 23:11, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Time for Change...[edit]

Sorry to see you go now Gaile, even though I only began to know of your existence early Feburuary I still feel it may be hard to adjust to Regina (Her posts don't seem to have any humor in them etc.). But I heard at the last party you attended in Dis-1 that you will still play GW and will help out in GW2 as well so I'm glad about that :-). Hope you will still stay active on the Wiki as I doubt it was only your status as CRM that kept us talking and laughing with you. All the best in the new job at Anet and sorry about editing your page... I'm a little new to wiki and thought it wouldn't hurt to help you out... :(. The Hitmans Paradox 10:39, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

As Dorothy said to the Scarecrow...[edit]

...I think I'll miss you most of all. It's been a long time since I was in the alpha, but I've followed the progress off and on. I truely hope that you enjoy your new position and stay in touch with those whose lives you've touched. -BH aka Wayfaring 12:47, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Oh, dang, that touches my heart. *sniff* (TWoO is, perhaps, my favourite movie of all time.) It was an honour and a pleasure to be involved so directly for so many years. I will do my very best to keep in touch. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 18:09, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Hello, MD -- how nice to know! Actually, you share a birthday with a most noble creature: George the Cat. My Lynx-Point Siamese will be turning 17 years this August 8th. He is a friendly and loving creature and quite the gamer, in fact. From his earliest days, when he inspected the keyboard and mouse to see if they were "gamer-correct," to recent hours spent loyally warming my feet as I played Guild Wars (he has favourite musical themes, in fact), GtC has proved to be a notable member of my gaming family. :) Happy birthday, in advance, to you both! -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 05:10, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
My cat loves to sit on my desk, and watch all the little things pop up on mm screen while playing GW, and even takes a bat or two at all the numbers from taking, recieving dmg, healing, ect. It's quite funny to watch him watch my screen =D --Wolf User Great Darkwolf User Image paw.png 01:18, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

It remains to be seen what sort of swag I come away with. ;) Sure, there are family and friends to consider, but Froggie says that he and the Tadpole Network have come up with something special, so I have to admit I'm intrigued by that, too.

Regarding the section header: I dropped one Vanquishing Magus stones (I really love glasses) and I'm probably never going to use it, would you like it for your collection?

Anyway, I'm on most of the time until 11-12pm GMT+1 so I hope we can catch up sometime so I can give the bow to you :)

Thank you, DS, I greatly appreciate your kindness. Oh, and the Valentine's Party I rushed off to help with was great. It's a school that really appreciates having people help -- they have a lot of kids who need extra care -- and I was glad to lend a hand. Besides that, kid parties are just fun! <3 I hope you have a great weekend and thank you again. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 00:48, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
Good to hear everything went good at the party. As I said I organised one by myself, people of my school could put a small letter with the name of another girl/boy with 1 euro in a box, and then we gave the people a roze on friday(as valentines day is on saturday this year, as you might know :p). Ofcourse I got some help during the day itself, which I kindly appreciated too :).
Oh, and dont bother, I was able to give you that bow and that's what it was about, we can always talk later again ;).Dutch Sunshine 14:10, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

And really cool places like Melk Abbey and the Danube Gorge & Weltenberg Abbey. It's going to be very hard to leave Europe. Although I have two kitties waiting for me back home, and I can't wait to see them!
Anyway, thanks for your kind thoughts; I will be home Saturday night. Oh, and guess what? I managed to attend the Dragon Festival for a few hours, from Prague, Czech Republic! Guess that shows how much I love Guild Wars. ;) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 20:58, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

We also have "The Cat Parade" wich is once every three years, 2012 beeing the next time, it involves the throwing of toy cats from the belfry and a colourful parade of cats and witches. 1817 was the last year that the throwing of cats from the belfry tower was done with real life cats because a cat miraculously survived the drop, from then on they decided not to use any real life cats in the future. talk Qaletaqa Hania 08:46, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

When did you come back during the Dragon Festival? Must have been while I was asleep cuz I was waiting all weekend to play DN with you. So much for counting on your love of the DN. Ah well, hope you at least got one of the hats. ^^ Katherinezoltin 15:42, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
@ Qaletaqa -- I love Belgium and the idea of the cat parade is great! But the idea of tossing kitties off of towers? Bizarre! I am glad your city stopped that practice and went with plushies! ;)
@Triple O -- Have you (and bear) been hitting the Triple Sec? ;)
@Katherinezoltin -- I'm so sorry I missed you; we had fun last time! I was only in for an hour or so. It was late evening Europe time, so probably middle of the day US. The lag on my hotel connection was bad enough I wasn't able to complete decently, so you didn't miss much. Well, there were the free Victory Tokens for my losing, I guess. ;) Let's hit DN next event! -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 02:44, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
Of course! ^^ Katherinezoltin 20:57, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

(ri)I was born in Budapest, Hungary, I'm happy you liked my home city. ^_^ Minami Kaori 21:54, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

That is so cool, Minami! You should be very proud, for who could not fall in love with a city that hosts this amazing sight or this one or a hundred others!?  :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 00:38, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
I was also born in Budapest and I do live there. it's going to be hot here with 45-50 Celsius degrees. --Boro 10px‎ 10:46, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Wow, another Hungarian? That's great, Boro! As I said, I'm a big fan of your city (and country)! But honestly, is that temperature right? That translated to 113 to 122 degrees Farenheit. That's hotter than any but the most extraordinary days in our Death Valley! Frankly, I don't think I could survive that sort of heat! If I return to Budapest, which I hope to do, which months should I come for "reasonable" weather? :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 17:10, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Very nice pictures Gaile :) Hmm yes, the Lanchid (Chain Bridge) has a fascinating history too. Did you know Gaile, that in 1849, when the bridge opened, it was the largest in the world? As for the temperatures, I heard it might be that hot in the sun, not in the shadows. Bad thing is, since Hungary doesn't have that kind of weather normally, very few people have air conditioning (my family doesn't for example). When you're in Hungary next time, my advice would be to check out the temples, more notably the St. Istvan Basilica. Whether one is religious or not, it's a worthwhile sight. The mummified right hand of one of Hungary's kings (St. Istvan, or St. Stephen in english) is in the reliquary, guarded by the temple. He was one of the most influential kings in Hungary's history. Here's a link on wikipedia to the temple, it also has some pictures [1]. Minami Kaori 07:04, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Gaile, Weather Underground (not affiliated with the old terrorist group) has a great arsenal of weather tools. For example, here is a 1 year historical temperature page for Budapest (25 July 08 to 25 July 09). Now you can prepare for any of your trips to ye olde country. 07:59, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I was a little skeptical of 50 degrees celsius as well, according to IP's website, highest temperature in Budapest since 1996 has been 104 F, so maybe Boro meant 35-40 degrees Celsius? (Satanael 16:28, 25 July 2009 (UTC))
well... 35-40 was expected countryside, and I took asphalt as a +10 instead of +5. --Boro 10px‎ 16:53, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
@ Boro -- Thanks for the history of Lanchid -- I did not know those facts, and find them interesting. I do love that bridge, it's just beautiful! (Anything with lions gets a plus from me anyway. :) ) I very much wanted to go to St. Stephen's Basilica -- next to the castle, it was my top pick to see! -- but all I got was a brief glimpse between buildings, as our cruise was essentially canceled. Instead of two days in Budapest, I had only about 3 hours. :( :( I will make St. Stephen's my first place to visit, when I go back!
@ 76 -- that's for the tip, that's helpful to know!
@ all -- I think that we can all agree, no matter the actual degree, the temperature will be "Too bloomin' hot!" :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 18:47, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
I wrote about the history of the bridge and the Basilica, not Boro *LOL* :P Minami Kaori 21:46, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Yes it was Minami, not me. --Boro 10px‎ 08:29, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Oooops, sorry, guys! I was just so dazzled by actually getting to meet some real Hungarians I got mixed up. <3 -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 02:49, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
Wait, you went to Hungary?! My dad's side is from Hungary! Jealous...I always wanted to go there on my honeymoon as part of my European honeymoon trip. ^^" I really want to see Europe and where my family is from. Katherinezoltin 15:56, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Three bows not on your collection list[edit]

Hi Gaile, found three bows in my storage that are not on your collection list. Nundak's Recurve Bow, Ancient Hornbow (gold), and Plagueborn Hornbow (gold). If you would like to have the bows for your collection, I will hold them until you have the opportunity to get them. -- DamFiNo 02:16, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

That's super nice of you, DF. I hope to be able to speak with you in the next couple of days about those. I sure appreciate your thoughtfulness. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 05:56, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh hey, DF, I wanted to be sure to say thank you. It was really kind of you, and with my extra storage panels, I'm having fun shifting bows and getting them all in the right spaces. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 02:06, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
