yeah I see, maybe we could just make hex spell redirect to hex -WiNG

Thanks for the help converting the red linky thingy doofer :) Baz 20:20, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

You're welcome - but what are you doing way up here in 2007? :D --snogratUser Snograt signature.png 20:38, 19 February 2009 (UTC)


I wonder if anyone has an image of the in-game gnomes I seem to remember from BWE, to make a GuildWarsWikiGnome. Vlad 13:52, 1 March 2007 (EST)

Lol! Maybe I could ask Emily Diehl :D -on second thoughts, I think she's getting a bit ratty over multiple requests for armor poses ^^ --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 13:56, 1 March 2007 (EST)
I've got a couple. Give me a sec and I'll upload something, though I'm really bad at image editing. Pepe talk 14:06, 1 March 2007 (EST)

how about [2]? That's so cool. Thanks MisterPepe.Vlad 14:15, 1 March 2007 (EST)

New sig[edit]

So whaddya say? --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 09:58, 2 March 2007 (EST)

Ranger template[edit]

Is it broken? Ranger if so, is it anything to do with the "noincludes" on the template's page (put there for the category stuff, I presume?) And why am I asking myself? Think I wiki a little too much --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 17:18, 6 March 2007 (EST)

You need to use lowercase, like so Ranger. See Template_talk:R. -Spot 15:22, 7 March 2007 (EST)
Sweet! Spot to the rescue again - thanks :) --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 16:37, 7 March 2007 (EST)

Skills 0..12..15[edit]

Hi Snograt, I noticed that you've been putting (at least some) of the skills with a 0..12..16 format (see Burning Arrow). Aren't we using 0..12..15? -Spot 13:21, 7 March 2007 (EST)

Oh crap - 0..12..15? That's not good - I wouldn't know WHERE to source those figures. I was nabbing the figures from gwBBcode, which I'd assumed were the same as the in-game ranges. I better stop entering them until I am at home and can correlate one with the other. Damn, I entered every single Elite skill that way :( Thanks for the heads-up, Spot (won't stop me altering all the font tags to span style tags though^^) --'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 13:37, 7 March 2007 (EST)
Aha - I see what I did there. That was one of the skills already in place that I edited the skill ranges. There was a scaling table already in place, and I stupidly took the shortcut of copying the (wrong) figures from there. Now I'm a little more educated, I won't make that mistake again :) Also, I just checked the discussion at Guild Wars Wiki talk:Formatting/Skills#Attribute levels in skill descriptions and it would seem that the gwBBcode ranges are in the 0..12..15 range, so I can continue using them. --'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 14:13, 7 March 2007 (EST)
Not sure what this gwBBcode is, but I checked the progression of a few skills like Quicksand, and noticed that the green numbers still seem to be using 0..12..16. -Spot 17:24, 7 March 2007 (EST)
Oh dear. That's certainly not good. gwBBcode is a Guild Wars skill display system designed for forums which enables easy build formatting with mouseover description popups. It's widely used - similar to the system they use on guildwarsguru. See the originator's site - [3]. Problem is, if that is definitely the 0..12..16 format, then I'm likely not the only one making this mistake. I'd better leave a note on the skills formatting page. __'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 21:16, 7 March 2007 (EST)
Geez, I seen the latest update and its using the 0..15 so I'm going to start using the ".." over the "..." seen in the game when unlocking skills. I'm one of those who been using the 0...12...16 so it's going to change to 0..12..15 so it'll be less work for you,Snograt. btw Snograt, green is wonderful for the skill numbers just like how it's done ingame.:)--Bane of Worlds 21:54, 7 March 2007 (EST)
Wow - thanks for the vote of confidence, Bane. I was beginning to think the green idea was just a one-man crusade :) As to the 0..12..15 thing; I'm thoroughly confused. I'm not going to create any more skill pages until I work out what's going on. I just put a note on the Formatting/Skills page - maybe those-who-know-everything will knock some facts into this old head ^^ --'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 22:05, 7 March 2007 (EST)

Renaming images[edit]

Hi. You asked how to rename images. It is not possible, so you need to upload the images again with a new name and tag the old ones for deletion. -- Gem (gem / talk) 06:40, 11 March 2007 (EDT)

Thanks Gem - there was a queue of people pointing that out to me :) I like this wiki, it's full of people willing to help and give advice. --'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 06:49, 11 March 2007 (EDT)
Hehe, no problem. Feel free to ask on my talk page if you need any help. -- Gem (gem / talk) 06:51, 11 March 2007 (EDT)


Hey, you might copy the infobox code onto your userpage instead of using the template, and you can make it look exactly as you want :) (regarding the wikignome thingy, which I think is very fun ^^ ) - Anja Astor 15:51, 26 March 2007 (EDT)

Argh - of course oO - I'm an idiot. Thanks :) --'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 21:24, 27 March 2007 (EDT)
Hopefully that's it. Anyone interested can peek at the code to realise how little I know about this stuff! --'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 05:00, 28 March 2007 (EDT)
There is some parameters left, but they don't pose a problem as I see it. If you want to, I can clean it up alittle and explain what I do, if you want to learn ;) Not necessary though, it looks nice already ^^ - Anja Astor 06:09, 28 March 2007 (EDT)
Actually Anja, if you wouldn't mind doing that, it would be great. I edited the code with zero understanding, but used a bit of logic as to what did what. I really should read up on this stuff. Problem is, I don't even know what this stuff is :D I mean I don't know what is wiki code, what's css or whatever. And I think css is a subset of HTML, but that's just guesswork. Any pointers would be much appreciated :) --'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 08:15, 28 March 2007 (EDT)
Now I did some cleaning, just minor stuff in the code. I replaced all {{pipe}} with |, those are used in templates with ParserFunctions since |'s mess upp parser coding. I also removed all old parameters, those are recognised by "{{{" and "}}}" and only used in templates. I removed the noinclude tag, since I guess your userpage isn't included somewhere so it needs that, correct me if I'm wrong ;) And lastly I just have one thing I didn't remove, and that is the {{clear}} tag, since I don't know if you actually want the text to start below the infobox, or if you want it beside the infobox. Just remove that yourself if you want the text to be beside it, like in the NPC articles :) - Anja Astor 10:30, 28 March 2007 (EDT)
Hehe - I wondered what the clear did ^^. Thanks for that, Anja :) --'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 14:42, 28 March 2007 (EDT)

user skin[edit]

Would you be opposed to having your User:Snograt/monobook.css updated to the latest User:Smurf/ skin.css? The reason for this is that the hotlinked external images in the old skin version causes a security issue (see Guild Wars Wiki talk:User page#Custom skin remote links). Also, note that image policy has been updated to include "All images used on the Official Guild Wars Wiki should be uploaded here. Do not hotlink to images on other websites (including the Official site." --Rezyk 16:02, 31 March 2007 (EDT)

Sure thing - was using Smurf's original anyway. I think it's done - feel free to check :) --'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 13:56, 1 April 2007 (EDT)
Looks good, thanks! --Rezyk 12:31, 2 April 2007 (EDT)


OK, I didn't know it was just for the first word, I am still relatively new to editing GW wiki's. Thanks for the head's up.--Valhallan 16:48, 10 April 2007 (EDT)

You're welcome :) --'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 19:32, 10 April 2007 (EDT)

Image help?[edit]

Couple of problems with my sig image (Trigsig.png). Firstly, as I set it to redirect to my user contributions, I can no longer view the image page (as there's no "redirected from..." link on special pages :/). Secondly, would anyone with some image editing skills care to tidy it up? It's a rip from ACTrigsig.pngDC's logo, but I'd like a nice black border around it - at the moment, the top of the image is un-bordered. Only image ed software I have is Fireworks - not much success using that :( --'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 10:38, 16 April 2007 (EDT)

First of all to access the image page use this link. And I will try to make a nice image for you :) Do you want the same colours or others? poke | talk 10:49, 16 April 2007 (EDT)
Hah, "redirect=no" - I knew it was something obvious! Thanks Poke - and any colours that look good to you - I have no taste :D --'SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 13:15, 16 April 2007 (EDT)
(edit conflict xD) - Ok, I did one. What do you think about this: User Snograt signature.png I took the logo from poke | talk 13:17, 16 April 2007 (EDT)
That rocks! Thanks Poke - you're a star :D --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 13:29, 16 April 2007 (EDT)
You're welcome :] poke | talk 13:50, 16 April 2007 (EDT)

Restrictive internet filter?[edit]

Heh, I know the feeling. Sometimes I really need to access something outside of my corporate firewall, so I made one of these: [4]. It's quite useful - enter the link you're trying to get to, and it'll take you there, past the filter - much joy. Enjoy! =) MisterPepe talk 18:47, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

Drat :( --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 18:54, 19 April 2007 (EDT)
Ouch =P Heh, that's better than most filters. That sucks =( MisterPepe talk 19:03, 19 April 2007 (EDT)
Thanks for trying MisterPepe - this damn company and their stupid rules. I can understand a degree of filtering being necessary, but this system is over-the-top. I can't access anything tagged as "Games", so even guildwiki is out. God forbid they ever tag this site. I won't mention my company's name - let's just say they run a subterranean transportation system in the capital city of a major English-speaking European nation ;). We have about 500-odd locations using a variety of PCs running everything from Windows NT (which I'm stuck with), 2000pro and XP. The software is diabolical and the individual user profiles are totally screwed. I just count myself lucky that I can still wiki edit while I'm on nights. --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 19:23, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

Unique quick references.[edit]

For consistency between the two of us, I've been linking to HoH on the quick reference list with [[The Hall of Heroes (explorable area)|The Hall of Heroes]], it makes the table a little more compact. --User Rohar icon.jpg Rohar (talk|contribs) 08:58, 5 May 2007 (EDT)

Fair do's. Just wish I'd posted my comments before making the changes. I still dislike Hoh, even though it's technically correct, but hey; that's democracy :) (Oh wait - we're a meritocracy; I lose that way too ^^) --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 09:17, 5 May 2007 (EDT)

Guitar Hero III[edit]

This game is unfair to us older types. Beat the easy level with no problems (except Slayer ><) - but the next level up? Four buttons? Fergettaboutit! I suck :( --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 22:07, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

My advice, just keep doing "hit me with your best shot" over and over till you get it! That's what I had to do. Oh...also, you get a fifth button on the next difficulty :P Kypp Duron 06:39, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Fixing the top of your userpage?[edit]

Hey, do you want me to fix that jumble at the top of your userpage? Its all bunched up. I've got it fixed right now, I just need to click "save page". And if you don't like it, you can always revert :) Let me know! Mattman243 User Mattman243 Shadow Axe.png 16:02, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Ooh, yes please - not sure WHAT I did there! Thanks :)--SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 17:29, 17 January 2008 (UTC)
There ya go! Sometimes userboxes make everything crowded together like that. All I did was put the userboxes into a grid form and added a <br>. Looks much cleaner now! :D Mattman243 User Mattman243 Shadow Axe.png 18:12, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

about my sig[edit]

Hi Snograt, you said that if i need extra help with my sig to come to you so.... anyway i tried doing this code: <spanstyle="color:navyblue"> The Forsaken<spanstyle="color:navyblue"> One</span but it just said " Invalid raw signature, check HTML code " (or sumthing like that) so idk what 2 do, all i want is my name do be dark blue and bolded... if u can help id much apreciate it. errrm on the preview my name was messed up so: The Forsaken One21:13, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Just a space missing between span and style, and the bold tags were in the wrong place (the three apostrophes), so '''[[User: The Forsaken One|<span style="color:navyblue"> The Forsaken</span>]][[User talk: The Forsaken One|<span style="color:navyblue"> One</span>]]''' gives The Forsaken One - is that what you wanted? --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 21:50, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Yes it is thanks a lot, btw took me a couple trys cuz i kept messing up this wiki code stuff is gonna be hard to get used to!--The Forsaken One 22:04, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Rohars Roughnecks[edit]

I had a link to my tracker on my user page, and inadvertently left it from my guild page. Thanks for the heads up!! Incidentally, I created a {{User CPT}} template for those of us that use my website to identify themselves. Happy Tracking! --User Rohar icon.jpg Rohar (talk|contribs) 17:52, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Cheers, Rohar :) --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 02:13, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
I implemented your suggestion regarding direct linking to the mission edit pages from the titles page. Still a little scrolly when you get navigated back, but it will eliminate several page loads at least. Thanks for the suggestions! --User Rohar icon.jpg Rohar (talk|contribs) 17:13, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

What the hell?[edit]

Sheesh, can't a guy have a little wiki-break without having to come back and find the place has been taken over by the illiterati? Sysops, now is the time to stop the cicular discussions and policy puffery and DO something. This is the Official Wiki and, even though we're autonomous, I can imagine ANet being not particularly impressed with what they see going on in here.

Not sure where to put this lol you know me and GW Wiki :) I decided to go for Tyrian Skill Hunter for 15th Title and printed off the page with all Proph Warrior Skills on , I thought I had them all as I crossed them off then I killed a boss who does not appear on that skills page ,Smuk Foombool and capped Battle Rage ,the page is , as you can see Battle Rage does not appear . --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Darthbaz (talk).

That's because Battle Rage is a core skill (meaning, it's from all campaigns). Maybe this article can help you more, since it shows all elites by zone/campaign/proffesion instead.--Fighterdoken 23:41, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
What he said. Lol, Ghengis - your notes always appear at random places! When starting a new section, make a title (for example Skill capping help) and stick it between a set of double equals signs - == Skill capping help == That starts a nice, new section and doesn't confuse the shit out of me when I see "You have new messages!" - and I can't find the bastard. :D. --snogratUser Snograt signature.png 10:01, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Excuse me fine sir. Would you venture, I pray, as to what on earth a Ditto Bow is, and how might I go about to find one? :D Currently, I'm imagining a bow that looks like this. He looks kind of like a Glob of GlobbyGoo (err, Ectoplasm). --CrazyRabidSquirrel 15:21, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Ahaha! Er, it's a rapid-fire, auto-barrage bow that goes dittodittodittodittoditto? An upgrade from the standard pew pew. --snogratUser Snograt signature.png 21:08, 20 July 2012 (UTC)


You are a perfect example of why they should've made GWAMM harder to achieve. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 10:13, 22 July 2012 (UTC).

Perfectly correct, but what would lead a total stranger to that conclusion? I'm genuinely intrigued. --snogratUser Snograt signature.png 10:37, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
GWAMM was never about skill, it was about dedication and perseverance... and staying awake trying to play gw pve, which in itself is an accomplishment, but not really a skill-based one. They just threw it in to keep people playing. If you want a skill-based title, you could try comparing champ rank? -Auron 12:23, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
^s'right. I never claimed to be good at GW, nor even competent. Time played > skill, in this one, sole exception to the rule. I'm just wondering why the angry i.p. has picked on me in particular - maybe due to the shite I post on Guru? --snogratUser Snograt signature.png 14:13, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
Logging in a year later just to laugh at this random sour grapes again. Ha! — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 14:14, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

It's an annual thing. — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 04:25, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Or tri-annual? — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 10:56, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
Quadrannual. Definitely quadrannual. — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 23:34, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
Beyond a doubt. To think that the IP may still be bitter about it after all these years. G R E E N E R 02:09, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
Holy poop, that’s 6 years. Where did all those years go? I was so young, had such dreams... No, wait: I was a geezer then, too. — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 09:39, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
Eight! Eight wasted years! Ah ah ah! — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 13:53, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
I was thinking about you literally yesterday and lamenting the loss of all these GWW veterans, but now the world is a lie because clearly all these veterans are still lurking in the shadows. - Infinite - talk 13:55, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
Hi Infi. Haven't played in years, but thanks to covid shielding, I suddenly have time! Just doing an -image as I type. I played the crap out of GW2 for a few years, spent far too much money, then burned myself out so badly I can't even bear to open the client again. I miss all the old wiki peeps too, though. — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 14:02, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
Happy birthday and I’m happy to hear that your account is still yours! :) poke | talk 14:06, 7 June 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, Poke. I'm glad that you're still active on these wikis after all this time. It's so sad seeing all these reconfirmations underlining all the regulars who have departed. — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 14:16, 7 June 2020 (UTC)
I’m far away from being as active as we all were during the good old times™ but I try to stick around :) Yeah, it certainly hits my heart with all these fond memories I have with the wikis. But at the same time I see how it is something that is necessary in order to make the current community more relevant. As much as we sometimes would like to, we cannot live in the past *sob* :) poke | talk 14:22, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

"cantha stuck at 98.9 until i can get into jq/fa"[edit]

I saw this in one of your edit summaries and I come bearing good news! With the current available content in Cantha, there is enough map to uncover without ever setting foot in JQ and FA (even the instructional cutscenes are optional). I did it with a relatively new character a few years ago, utilising the incredibly helpful and detailed maps provided by Marc: User:Ruine_Eternelle/Borderless_Cartography_Made_Easy. Of course waiting for the PvP arenas to let you in to run around for Cartographer can be a trip down memory lane, but should you not want to bother with wasting time queuing up for a match of bots versus bots versus you, I highly recommend you give this approach a try. I also particularly enjoy taking my veteran characters out for a stroll to see how much map I could have possibly missed back in the days of scraping every crevice of the maps' edges. Then again, a lot of them don't even exist any longer either! - Infinite - talk 12:56, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for patrolling rc as usual, Infi! Yes, I’ve already got gm carto in Tyria and Elona, and it’s all thanks to Marc’s maps - don’t know how we ever managed without them! Looking at my maps, I can’t imagine that the very few slivers remaining could possibly add up to 1.1%, but if you’ve done it without, it must be true. Maybe it’s that tiny island supposedly unlocked at the end of Winds of Changes (or whatever), plus a small patch just nw of Cavalon that’s driving me insane! I’ve tried to reach it from all three possible zones and don’t get anywhere near it. I’m in danger of burning myself out again too - I did a caravan vanquish all the way from ToA to Diessa Lowlands, but I just couldn’t go on any more. Probably 7 hours plus. Anyhoo, thanks for the nudge, I shall prevail! — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 20:20, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

Congratulations are in order[edit]

On the retirement! Hope it's enjoyable. horrible | contribs 02:07, 8 March 2022 (UTC)

Oh, it is - it so much is! Thanks, Horrible. — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 22:06, 8 March 2022 (UTC)
