{{Screenshot}} and {{Arenanet Image}} are mutually exclusive. A screenshot is...well, a screenshot. If its an arenanet image, its usually concept art, a render extracted from the DAT file, or a photo Anet-owned inside another photo. No double categorizations please. Thanks! :) --User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 03:01, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Alright. Thanks for that WT! I shall bear that in mind next time. -- My Talk Lacky 03:08, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Your sig :)

-- My Talk Lacky --Yo Jm Talk to me 08:09, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

I thought you didn't like my Penguin? Ahh well. Besides, I like this one that I have at the moment. However that does look alright. ^_^ -- My Talk Lacky 21:17, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
I didnt like your old sig, i didnt say i didnt like the penguin :P --Yo Jm Talk to me 10:55, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Ahh, ok. Well, I shall keep this new one in mind. I shall see how this current one goes for now. -- My Talk Lacky 02:45, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
/vote with Yo Jim's sig. -- Halogod35 User Halogod35 Sig.jpg 01:37, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
I like the new one. Also, I think it looks better now that you dropped your image to 15px, instead of 19px.—User Rein sig.pngRein 01:42, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
By "new one", do you mean my current blue one, or Yo Jm's one? Also, yes, I agree, 15px is by FAR better. -- My Talk Lacky 01:43, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
I meant the your current one.—User Rein sig.pngRein 18:45, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh thank you. I like it as well. -- My Talk Lacky 00:41, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks

-- Thanks, I'm still trying to get the hang of it. I think I should just start a new with Dreamweaver and upload from there, I'm trying to upload from the old wiki which isn't going over very well. I'm probably going to end up just creating a brand new layout with Dreamweaver and then perhaps looking at the images from there. Just so I know can I change it now? even though I've uploaded all the files? --Dark Savior| My Talk 08:16, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

What do you mean? -- My Talk Lacky 21:20, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
It's really impossible to upload to GWW from Dreamweaver. Wiki code is very different from html, and not all html tags work in wiki code. I noticed you seem to be copying everything verbatim from GWiki, and that isn't going to work, since we don't use the same templates. I did fix your skill bars for you. -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 02:54, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Wyn. I had no idea what Dark was talking about. -- My Talk Lacky 02:57, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

.js

What do your .js's do? It's probably in the archives somewhere but I can't be bothered to look for it. Dragnmn talk cont 09:11, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

My monobook.js file does a lot of things. For instance, I have installed Poke's Guild Wars Wiki Tools which lets me do a number of things such as tagging a lot easier, a lot faster, and automatically. Also, I have edited it to add several more links up the top of my screen where the time is. Speaking of the time, I have also changed it to my local time. The monobook.js stuff only applies whilst I have the monobook.js skin selected in My Preferences, where as common.js applies whilst I have any skin selected in My Preferences. I also have a number of other scripts installed such as a SkillChecker by Ale Jrb, which when I hover over a skill icon or hover over a link to a skill, will show me a "pop-up" like thing at my mouse telling me what the skill is, does, shows the icon for it, shows it's attribute etc. and is on the whole all very useful and time saving. Anything else you would like to know? -- My Talk Lacky 21:56, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh yes, and also I can view a user's contribution count by inputting javascript:addScript('User:Poke/GuildWarsWikiTools/ContributionCount.js');void(0); into my URL/address bar. -- My Talk Lacky 21:59, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Just to note, that last one doesn't have anything to do with your monobook, that works for anyone using Firefox. Freedom Bound 22:12, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Yes, but I just felt like inputting it in there somewhere. =P -- My Talk Lacky 22:13, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Email

You should really remove your email address from your page, as its redundant with the email this user. Dominator Matrix 23:01, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Naw, some people might not know about that, also, this way is more...personal. ^_^ -- My Talk Lacky 23:02, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Ya much more personal for any spambot :P. Dominator Matrix 23:03, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
I rarely get spam. Well, when I say rarely, I mean, rarely more than one or two in my inbox. -- My Talk Lacky 23:06, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

talk about timing..

Thanks for the help with the images, ill try and fix them from now on. By the way, i was just tryin to make a sig, but i cant seem to get it working.. is there a dif. way to put an image in the Sig box when creating one?Sloh Em Oshun 05:26, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

To create a signature, just go to your preferences, and under the signature bit, firstly, make sure you have the raw signatures (without automatic link) ticked, an then in the box above it just put in something like [[File:User Sloh Em Oshun sig.png|19px]] [[User:Sloh Em Oshun|Sloh Em Oshun]], which would result in User Sloh Em Oshun sig.png Sloh Em Oshun. -- My Talk Lacky 05:33, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

o.O

why am i on your friends list? -Auron 02:34, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Cause you're such a carebear. ~Shard User Shard Sig Icon.png 02:37, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
Because I <3 you. -- My Talk Lacky 06:16, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Redirects

Those redirects are not necessary, as everyone has access to special pages via the toolbox. Sigh....-- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 10:05, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

If someone didn't know that, or if they viewed their preferences, and wonder what they are, if they click on them, then they will know. -- My Talk Lacky 10:07, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Ummmm I don't understand what you mean by viewed their preferences.... We don't have to spell out every wiki option, and redirects to special pages in GWW is just not necessary. -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 10:09, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
What I mean is, if they clicked on my preferences, and saw the groups they were in, and didn't know, they can just click on the links of them. And it's not spelling out every wiki option. >_> -- My Talk Lacky 10:11, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
There is already a link to the group list.... it's pretty uncomplicated. I also believe that ArenaNetIT and Liaisons are going to know what it is as well as how to get to the special pages. Sigh-- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 10:15, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Ahh well, at least it gets rid of the red links. =P -- My Talk Lacky 10:19, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Inclusion

Is it allowed to include other talk pages in my talk page. Or does this mess something up? <_< Interface 12:05, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

And can you help me with this: ^__^ ({{[[Template:smile]]}} ? :S User interface...Tricked 12:31, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Do you mean other people's talk page in your own? I would say no. If you mean the actual User Inteface Article's talk page, then I don't know but I would also say no because your user talk page is for people to contact you and talk to you etc., especially if you haven't got a registered and activated email address associated with your account.
What would you like help with regarding the template? -- My Talk Lacky 22:42, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
I — guess considering the reactions of some people here — deleting. User talk:Interface v.v 09:04, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
?...OK... -- My Talk Lacky 10:07, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Noticeboard

I generally leave one vandal issue and one issue issue on the noticeboard so people can have an example for each issue, making it easier for them to report stuff. It's not a major issue, but meh. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 12:52, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Ahh alright. I just archived them because they were resolved, but I shall remember that for next time. Thanks Brains/Pling. -- My Talk Lacky 22:39, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
