Got ya back! - BeXoR 00:54, 8 February 2007 (PST)

Please stop with the naked people ;)Aratak 07:51, 8 February 2007 (PST)
Oh no I've been found *runs* :P -- Scourge 15:10, 8 February 2007 (PST)

weapon images[edit]

Hi, can you tell me where you take the screenshots for the unique weapons you uploaded? It had a blue sea/sky background and seems to be used for most of them. And should I be naked in it? thanks

I take pictures at the Isle of the Nameless, and I'm naked because BeXoR tricked me ;) Seriously though, I'm naked because I didn't want any interference from my armour in the photo -- Scourge 03:16, 9 February 2007 (PST)
If you are naked your armor (and its colours) dont obscure the view of the weapon. The spot is here Map. - - BeXoR 04:09, 9 February 2007 (PST)
I still hate the naked part. there is a lot of armor who doesn't influence the quality of the image. But I don't think we should have any policies on that. The choice is for the user to make. I must say that for some focus I had to strip down too. :S--Aratak 08:20, 12 February 2007 (PST)
I'm not alone. :D--Aratak 09:15, 12 February 2007 (PST)
They're arent exactly "naked", they have underwear you know... lol -- Scourge 16:26, 12 February 2007 (PST)
Setting a policy on it is a bit silly. Sometimes it is necessary, and sometimes it isn't. I prefer it without armor, because colors clash or complement, and what may look nice with a background of dark blue armor might look pretty awful when your armor is dyed another color. It's just a way to stay neutral, and the most common color of all between all characters of all professions is a generic skin tone! - BeXoR 02:09, 14 February 2007 (PST)

User page[edit]

You miss the fine print when posting: "If you don't want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then don't submit it here." :P I like what you did on your page. I hope there will be a template for user page sometime... --Bob 20:32, 19 February 2007 (PST)

Well I'm not going to exactly stop people taking my user page, but I'm not going to encourage it either. User pages should be an expression of the user, everyone having the same user page would be ridiculous. You wouldn't happen to be Bob B off the Whirlpool forums would you? Scourge 00:22, 20 February 2007 (PST)
i think not, dont know this forum. btw, it was mean to be a joke. --Bob 02:06, 20 February 2007 (PST)


Did you know your userpage is in breach of GWW:SIGN? Apparently you aren't allowed to have colour and bold at the same time. :P - BeXoR 12:58, 25 February 2007 (EST)

This is why I run everything past you first lol -- Scourge 18:33, 25 February 2007 (EST)


In the future, please use the move function in order to preserve the article's revision history and keep the talk page attached. -- Gordon Ecker 06:59, 26 February 2007 (EST)

I had rewritten the article in my Sandbox, I take it what your saying is that after it has been moved, place my redone version in? I thought the move was never going to happen thats why I jumped the gun, its been scheduled for a move for over a week now. Guess I'll just have to wait a little longer -- Scourge 19:58, 26 February 2007 (EST)
Yeah. On this wiki anyone can move articles, it's probably different on some other wikis. -- Gordon Ecker 20:51, 26 February 2007 (EST)
Really I didn't know that, guess I'll have to learn how to do that, thanks :) -- Scourge 20:52, 26 February 2007 (EST)
Any idea of where the info would be, I had a bit of a search around and didn't find anything -- Scourge 21:16, 26 February 2007 (EST)
At the top of the page theres a tab that says "Move". :P - BeXoR 21:18, 26 February 2007 (EST)
Don't I look like an idiot lol... it was right under my nose -- Scourge 21:18, 26 February 2007 (EST)
Nah, I'm pretty sure I had to be told it was there too. - BeXoR 21:20, 26 February 2007 (EST)

Copyvio + delete[edit]

Please do not tag copyvio articles with the deletion tag. Copyvio articles are placed in the copyvio category which is a subcategory of the deletion category. Now all of the articles show up in both categories which is really irritating for an admin making deletions. Thanks. -- Gem (gem / talk) 06:45, 10 March 2007 (EST)

 :( I asked you ingame about this and you said it was ok. Oh well won't do it next time then ;) -- Scourge 07:16, 10 March 2007 (EST)
Sorry, it seems that I didn't fully understand you while playing the mission. :) Well, not too much harm done. -- Gem (gem / talk) 14:47, 10 March 2007 (EST)
You can just delete them from Category:Suspected_copyright_violations and it should get rid of them from deleted queue as well :P Did you win the mission at least? -- Scourge 21:07, 10 March 2007 (EST)
I did. :) Thanks for asking. The problem is that I would like to stay out of the copyvio articles, but now they crowd the normal deletion category too preventing me from deleting anything without going through the two dozen pages every time. Well, I believe someone will do something about the copyvio articles soon enough. -- Gem (gem / talk) 21:15, 10 March 2007 (EST)

I created a {{delete-copyvio}} template which is intended to replace the {{copyvio}} template. I hope this can simplify things by effectively incorporating the deletion notice into the copyright violation tagging. (If anyone opposes this, please say so.) --Rezyk 04:07, 11 March 2007 (EDT)

Sounds good to me, It's really about the admins though, if they're happy to use it and it makes it easier for them I'll have no problem using it. -- Scourge 05:26, 11 March 2007 (EDT)
Looks good. I would like that template to replace the current copyvio template as the current one has an easier name to use. -- Gem (gem / talk) 06:50, 11 March 2007 (EDT)
Can I suggest a change of colours? That gray is extremely hard on the eyes. -- Scourge File:Scourge.gif 06:56, 11 March 2007 (EDT)

Reply to your question on Gaile Gray's talk page[edit]

Question: lol, hey DashFace, when are you going to put up that awesome pic from your GameWiki's page?

Answer: I'll make a proper userpage when I can think of something that fits into the new and overly-restrictive userpage guidelines. I am finding that the 100k total for images has killed off my previous plans, and the restriction on how many vertical screens it can take up is sapping my energy. With the bandwidth concerns already addressed, wouldn't it be shocking if people had to scroll too much to reach the end of the page? Regardless, I'm gonna make something entirely different, without the head-in-pond image. Gotta be original! -- Dashface 01:04, 16 March 2007 (EDT)

I love that head in pond image :O. I really disagree with that 100k limit on user pages and the scrolling restrictions, they're really not needed. Most people keep them incheck and tidy anyway. I like reading slabs about people ingame achievements, especially the stories people make about their characters :) -- Scourge User Scourge Spade.gif 01:07, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
*I'm using Blood Is Power on Dashface* - So you wont run low on energy for a while ;) -- Scourge User Scourge Spade.gif 01:08, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
The slab of achievements, the outdated unlock tables, and the huge elite skill grid will remain, just not here. In fact, I've already got the dimensions of a new grid drawn up based on how many new elites I think there might be based on previous campaigns (10x10, 2x15). I'll be sure to update with my Elonian adventures as soon as the next game comes out so as to be less spoilerish, though I like to think that I've worded things in my bio in a rather misleading way anyway. (Thanks for BIP.) -- Dashface 08:49, 17 March 2007 (EDT)
Note that most of the restrictions are for the main user page only, not the sub pages. -- Gem (gem / talk) 04:22, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
So you can have a huge page (>100kb) included in the main user page and thats allowed? -- Scourge User Scourge Spade.gif 04:40, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
Ofcourse not. Anything included to the page is part of the stuff that the editors browser needs to load. There is no difference to the page even if it's included instead of placin it directly to the user page. The idea is that you can have a link on your main user page to any sub pages with additional info like in game characters etc. See my GuildWiki user page for an example. The main user page has info about me and some wiki stuff. In game information is on sub pages, linked from the main user page. -- Gem (gem / talk) 17:15, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
Yeah, but nobody will see the subpages. Well, sure, some might, but I'd rather have anything I invest time in be a bit more visible. Except the fake skill pages of mine of GuildWiki; they're subpages and unlinked, but they're supposed to be a little hidden. The 100k total is like trying to drink soup through a straw. All the liquid is coming through, but the peas, the corn, the chunks of meat, and all of the other stuff that you might want to actually eat is not getting through. Too bad if I wanted a new comic on there. -- Dashface 08:40, 17 March 2007 (EDT)
You can make any links to your sub pages really noticable pretty easily with osme imagination. Anyone who would like to see them on your main page will also see the sub page. -- Gem (gem / talk) 15:43, 17 March 2007 (EDT)


hey, my images are gonna be removed now? or uh...I dunno ----InfestedHydralisk Shadow Prison.jpg 17:22, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

Sure I can do that for you now :) -- Scourge User Scourge Spade.gif 17:22, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

no, no, no w8 a sec O_O...I was asking if they MUST be removed? >_< ----InfestedHydralisk Shadow Prison.jpg 17:24, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

We'll you don't hold the copyright to the game do you? If you do you can keep them, otherwise you don't have permission to use them and they violate the copyright policy held here. -- Scourge User Scourge Spade.gif 17:25, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

Is taking screens not copyright? I thought that wasn't a problem. ----InfestedHydralisk Shadow Prison.jpg 17:30, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

You're taking a screen shot of a game, all the content of that game is copyrighted to someone in some way or another, this game is StarCraft correct? StarCraft is copyrighted to Blizzard Entertainment. In this wiki if we take a screen shot we have to flag it with {{arenanet image}} its not our image, its Anets.-- Scourge User Scourge Spade.gif 17:37, 21 March 2007 (EDT)
[edit conflict]any screenshots from GW are copyright to Arenanet... these are acceptable on this site. They should be tagged with {{arenanet image}} though. Screenshots from other games are usually copyrighted to their respective publisher and so would not be acceptable. Vladtheemailer 17:40, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

ah go delete, I'll go do GW style ----InfestedHydralisk Shadow Prison.jpg 18:04, 21 March 2007 (EDT)


Hey, if you want to, feel free to add your build page to [[Category:User:Eloc Jcg/Builds]]--Eloc 23:12, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

Some days....[edit]

Hi Scourge -- wergyuj,rf/jiovtoP"tb oi[05go pggyrrvrjjk --- that was me banging my head on the keyboard ;) Fox 08:36, 30 March 2007 (EDT)

Reply to Fullmana Talk[edit]

Thanks for the tip. I'd actually been doing both - Logging it in discussion and history. If it pleases the court, I'll just note the summary box. :) Fullmana Alchemist 10:18, 31 March 2007 (EDT)

It's really up to you, theres no need to do it, but no one going to stop you if you want to do it ;) Just thought it might save you some time -- Scourge User Scourge Spade.gif 10:31, 31 March 2007 (EDT)
