Welcome Message Template

Just a forewarning, but Welcome Templates (and the like) have had a bad history on GWW. (A "People feeling they're emotionless epeen-stroking" problem). Use it wisely. --User Ezekial Riddle silverbluesig.pngRIDDLE 00:13, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Not really a vandal

Here, probably just someone that doesn't understand talk pages. That was his question that I answered, and he was probably just trying to bury it (pardon the pun). -- FreedomBoundUser Freedom Bound Sig.png 23:44, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Ah, my mistake. I didn't bother to check if the IP addresses were the same. Thanks for pointing that out. ThrainUser Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 23:48, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
No problem. On another note, I can't seem to use the tabs at the top of your talk page (user page, edit, "+", and so on). Any ideas as to why that might be? -- FreedomBoundUser Freedom Bound Sig.png 23:49, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Hmm. No idea, but I'll look into it. It's probably my new header-thingy. ThrainUser Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 23:51, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

in general those are frowned upon because they look just like the legitimate system message, although yours may be different enough that it's acceptable (my new messages bar is always pink but you hard-coded yours to be orange). inb4 angry sysop Vili 点 User talk:Vili 19:26, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

It would be good if you could use your main account (User:Thrain) to set up the redirects (or just do a null edit now) so that people can see that both accounts agree that it is a sock, and not someone trying to troll you by claiming to be your sock. Misery 22:35, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Your header template

If you look at this, you'll see what the problem is with your header. It shouldn't be using position:absolute. -- pling User Pling sig.png 22:45, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Yes, but if I change it back to the way it was here, there'll be ugly white space. I'd prefer to keep it like this, unless you know how to fix it and keep the white space away. ThrainUser Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 22:50, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
I think white space would be better than obscuring the interface. You could ask a code helper to fix it if you want. -- pling User Pling sig.png 22:54, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Image tags

While i highly appreciate you adding the {{screenshot}} for user images missing them, would you also add {{user image|<username>}} to the images. For example, the images you upload for yourself should have {{user image|Thrain}} tag. Otherwise other people like me have to through those images again. Thanks! - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 17:00, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Okay, I'll do that. ThrainUser Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 17:00, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
And remember, sometimes the uploader isn't the one you tag the image for. Check the username used in the filename and where the image is used. If you have any questions about a certain image, feel free to ask :) - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 17:03, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
Well, I had originally planned on tagging all of the Screenshots & Arenanet Images at once, and then I had planned to go back and do the User Image ones, as most of the user images were tagged with {{user image}} but not {{user image|User Name}}. ThrainUser Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 17:10, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
One more thing: Check if any pages link to the image you're adding tags to. If not, and the images has been uploaded over a month ago, it can be tagged for deletion as an orphaned image. - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 17:24, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

functional redirect

What? --JonTheMon 01:48, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Well, when the delete tag was above the redirect text, it didn't redirect. Moving the tag to the bottom of the page allowed the redirect to work, as well as having the page tagged for deletion. ThrainUser Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 01:50, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

User page

Our User page policy restricts the size of your main userpage to 300k. Having it redirected to a page that is almost 2mb violates that policy. Please change it. You can feel free to provide a link on your main page to the alternate, but not a redirect. Thanks! -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 08:20, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Sorry about that; I completely forgot about the policy. ThrainUser Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 13:15, 23 October 2010 (UTC)


DOn't know you, don't know if you just want to troll or something, but copyvios are relevant from a legal perspective. It's not something you remove for any other reason that the copyvio claim having been dealth with. Backsword 04:28, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Except when there is no copyright violation. -- Konig/talk 04:28, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

I have read it, actually. Also, you can add a link/descriptoin right into the {{copyvio}} tag. ThrainUser Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 04:41, 22 December 2010 (UTC)
I know. But it only take one, which would be misleading here. Backsword 04:44, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Wintersday page

Hey- Didn't want to get into a revert war with you or anything, but its not a bug and its actually something that has always occurred. If a district is created after the event starts (as triggered on the servers at the set time), then it won't have the event. Its quite simple, really, and not a bug at all. -elviondale (tahlk) 08:36, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Yes, that's why I renamed it as an anomaly. The districts were created after midnight PST, but before their finale would have sequentially started (thus causing the confusion in-game). ThrainUser Thrain Sig.pngcontribs 08:38, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
I don't know.. I don't think it even warrants "anomaly", but its not really significant enough to keep me from falling asleep ^_^ -elviondale (tahlk) 08:46, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Increases the movement speed of an ally

But isn't there a distinct difference between increasing the speed of the party/allies, and increasing a single target? --JonTheMon 16:01, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Yes there is, but related skills don't necessarily have to have the same function. They just have to similar enough that a player might want to change one for another. Thrain | contribs 16:25, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
But why would you want to change out a party-wide shout for a single-target shout? or vice-versa? --JonTheMon 18:55, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
Hypothetically speaking, a group in alliance battles might want to change their strategy from a full group capping points together, to smaller one/two player teams, or vice-versa. Thrain | contribs 19:14, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
That would be a strategy shift that would require a different set of skills, and therefore wouldn't be related. --JonTheMon 05:46, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
Kind of. The skills would both fill the same niche, but one on a party-wide level and one on a character level. Either way, I consider them related. If no one else does, then go with the consensus. Thrain | contribs 20:47, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
And where is the consensus? --JonTheMon 21:40, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

IMS Shouts

There are 7 of them, so please make some more particular criteria, before putting the whole list of GW skills on the related list, thank you. And if you disagree with my changes so strongly you have to revert everything I've done, then ask me why I chose to make the changes I did, instead of just being arrogant Gaudy Gourd God 16:02, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

I reverted three changes. The ones you removed all had *similar* functionalities; They all were shouts that increased the movement speed of an ally/allies. If they're not similar enough to be linked, then by your logic Seed of Life shouldn't be linked to Healing Seed.
I don't see how removing three changes is being arrogant, but I do consider that to be the definition of confronting me harshly on my talk page with the belief that you're infallible. Thrain | contribs 16:18, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
Putting words in my mouth doesn't further this situation. My point is, there has to be more things in common before a skill just get added to the related skill list. If people were curious about skills that increase movement speed in general, then there is a page for that, with a list of all IMS skills. If people look at Charge, but wish to have additional skills with a similar effect, then only the skills that affect the whole party should be listed as related, since skills as Make Haste would possibly not be what that person was interested in. Retreat and Godspeed are however related, as they affect the whole party/allies, but have a penalty that may or may not fit in with the build in question. As I wrote above, do you really prefer that there are 6 related skills on each of these skills' pages, as well as additional skills on Make Haste's skill page? I prefer an obvious link to the page with all IMS skills Gaudy Gourd God 16:53, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
1. I didn't put any words in your mouth, I simply applied your idea to another set of skills.
2. "There has to be more things in common," is a relative comparison that is mainly based on opinion. As I said earlier, they're both shouts that increase the movement speed of an ally, with a debuff that may not be beneficial.
3. Yes, 6 linked skills is better than 2 or 3 in this case. Why? Because there are 6 skills that related to it. Thrain | contribs 17:24, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
