Hi. Could you please upload cropped version of the images. We don't want to see the character at all, only the item. Thanks. :) -- Gem (gem / talk) 09:20, 24 April 2007 (EDT)

Hi Gem. Current pics are from my personal archives. I'll work on a new set of pics, but in the meantime, something is better than nothing.;) Marcus Ferret 14:37, 24 April 2007 (EDT)
Thanks Marcus - yes, you're right of course, any pic is better than a red link. I'm sure that we can leave this project in your capable hands and that you'll upload newer versions as you make them. I did place a request on one of the image talk pages, but when i saw you were uploading a massive batch I decided to hold fire. What I think would be better - and I'm open to discussion, of course, is if they were against a lighter background, and the "equipped" images were actually panned out to show them as they look on the warrior, not zoomed in. If you get my drift. The close up shots are really just for the info box, not the equipped item galleries. Now, I'm not trying to promote my ideas over everybody else, but the kind of image I envisage for the equipped shots should be something like those at Arrahhsh's Aegis - not the greatest resolution, but the poses I think are about right. Anyway, I'm blabbering now - need more caffeine. User Fox.jpg Fox (talk|contribs) 14:53, 24 April 2007 (EDT)
LOL No probs:) I use the same background and pose for all my weapon screenies, but I get the picture...;) Sigh... If only I hadn't lost my previous full weapons screenshot collection to a PC crash.:( Anyway, I'll work on it as it gives me something to do in-game while I await the arrival of GW:EN. In the meantime, I'll try and fill in the empty slots with what is currently in my collection.Marcus Ferret 15:00, 24 April 2007 (EDT)
Right then... Uploading seems easy enough... How do I change the pics? Cheers in advance:DMarcus Ferret 19:32, 24 April 2007 (EDT)
If you click on the image it will take you to the image's file page. Near the bottom is an option to "upload a new version" - use this. Once it starts to upload it will then tell you that a version already exists, so choose to carry on and save your new version anyway. After it has uploaded, due to the way the images are cached on the server, it can take up to ten minutes before you see the new image, by the way. They are there, just not yet displayed User Fox.jpg Fox (talk|contribs) 21:51, 24 April 2007 (EDT)
Cheers Fox:) I was trying it out last night but didn't know that the new pic would take so long to upload... Got a little worried that I was messing up the boards or something...hehe
I've readjusted, cropped, and uploaded some new shots. I'm currently maintaining the black background for warrior weapon shots as I find that it brings out the details in the weapons (not to mention the color and detail on my warrior's spanking Elite Sunspear Armor).:P Anyway, if there's a problem with people viewing the pics as they are, let me know and I'll find a more appropriate setting, resolution, etc. Marcus Ferret 04:12, 25 April 2007 (EDT)


Hi, I may have messed up the names for the images in Idol, so when u uploaded in there, the link was for the Cane, so it showed in that page and in the cane page, also. I fixed the link now, so u can go back to the idol version and upload your knife version again (sorry). I'm going to replace the cane picture with the right one.--Zemmy 22:49, 24 April 2007 (EDT)

No worries Zemmy, I'm pretty new at this, so I may mess up more than you do...;) Anyway, thanks for the heads up.:) I'll upload the picture again.Marcus Ferret 04:09, 25 April 2007 (EDT)

Please review Guild_Wars_Wiki:Formatting/NPCs#Items_dropped. The reason for this post, regular weapons are not documented. Thanks — Gares 08:51, 26 April 2007 (EDT)

Just noticed that it would be a nightmare to fill in every type of weapon drop..hehe I'll edit the pages when I get back to them later.Marcus Ferret 08:59, 26 April 2007 (EDT)

Could you remember to tag all screenshots you upload with {{screenshot}} please. Thanks -- User indochine sig icon.pngIndochine talk 10:59, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Weapon gallery images[edit]

Hey Marcus, if you add images to the weapon gallery ({{weapon gallery}}), there is no need to add the profession of the wielder anymore. Have a look at GWW:WEAPONS. Currently, we already have an image named Image:Greater Highlander Blade female.jpg, so I tagged your image for deletion. You can re-upload it over the other one if you want, but that's your decision. -- CoRrRan (CoRrRan / talk) 22:08, 29 August 2007 (UTC)


{{delete}} - BeX iawtc 08:05, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Cheers Bex:) Knew there was something around somewhere for such matters but was too lazy to do a search this morning...heh Marcus Ferret 08:09, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Small question[edit]

What armor a person on your picture is wearing? ? Right?-- 10:25, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
