I must say[edit]

two weeks was a very long time and not to start a flame war here to but, i find stopping my work on the skill animations project was more disruptive than my anti-auron "crusade"Scythe 0:55, 27 Aug 2010 (UTC)

WTS[edit]

Anyone who stalks my page interested in buying a few thousand points of alcohol or party? Specifically I've got 4756 minutes of alcohol and 5788 party points. I hate Kamadan. - Tanetris 11:57, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Koda, are you suggesting Euradyce wants to buy those points or that she's being annoying with the spamming of RC? -- Salome User salome sig2.png 12:52, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
I am suggesting I missed your message. Which she still seems to ignore. Koda User Koda Kumi UT.jpeg Kumi 13:12, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
I know its annoying. Alas can't do anything to stop her as RC spamming is allowed just annoying. :( -- Salome User salome sig2.png 15:56, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Congratulations[edit]

50 points and GWAMM, I'm impressed :o poke | talk 10:00, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

RC[edit]

I hate to ask but, is there a way to hide deletions/moves from RC? It's kinda spammed up with all your deletions, not saying deleting is wrong! - Lucian Shadowborn User Lucian Shadowborn.png 20:05, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Hm. I don't think non-admins can hide patrolled edits from RC so that's probably out... No, I don't think there is a way. I'll stop for awhile after I finish the speedies, though. Not many more. - Tanetris 20:15, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
Ok, thats' what I figured. Thanks anyway. :) - Lucian Shadowborn User Lucian Shadowborn.png 20:26, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
Its possible to extend the limit of your RC to see beyond his edits, though. [1] --NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon6.png 20:34, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Boo!!![edit]

I wanted to do that! You take away all my fun! *huffs* -- Salome User salome sig2.png 01:24, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

ty for extending the block on our recent vandal, especially since I believe that they were either circumventing an existing block...or were following in the exact footsteps of a previously banned account (the text used and even the account name was copied).  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 00:02, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

Question[edit]

What's a really good ranger weapon in your opinion to use with Barrage? Kaisha User Kaisha Sig.png 09:45, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

I know you're asking Tanetris and not me, but I'll offer some choices to choose from while she's busy or otherwise unavailable. Zealous, for the energy regain per hit from Barrage. Vampiric, same basic concept only with life stealing. Poisonous (as Poison Tip Signet can be used with Barrage). If it triggers on successful hits and isn't removed by Barrage, it's probably worth considering. Teddy Dan, yo. 10:02, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
Probably a recurve, btw, because of its low shelf/flight time. You wanna be sure all of those arrows hit. Bow of the Kinslayer is a nice one for poison on hit with PTS. Elswyth's Recurve Bow for life stealing on hit. Mallyx's Recurve Bow for energy regain on hit. Crippling would be pretty good if you have a Fevered Dreams/Epidemic mesmer or Crippling Anthem paragon in your party, so as to keep groups from spreading any further. Otherwise, Crippling is basically useless with a Barrage build. As you would guess, that very same Barrage+Crippling Anthem combo sets AoEs up nicely for elementalists. One could even bring both Barrage and Crippling Anthem for such a plan, but I would advise against it. Anyway, I'm getting off-topic. Any low-and-fast-firing bow with an effect that triggers upon successful hit is good with Barrage provided you can remove/prevent blocking and scattering. Of course, as always, I could be wrong Teddy Dan, yo. 10:24, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

It was nice to meet you on Friday, it is always nice to put a face to the username.  :) I hope you enjoyed your time here and that you cooled off a bit from the weather in your part of the country. --Rainith 00:38, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

LDoA[edit]

Not interested? 76.106.245.213 17:26, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
Oh, that was before the addition of Vanguard quests. I did have a level 16 perma-Pre at the time, but just not enough connection stability for deathleveling. Got it within a week or few of the Vanguard update though. Also got the last few armor statues. I'll update the link. - Tanetris 18:19, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
Ah, okay. My apologies for assuming, then. 76.106.245.213 00:53, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Danke[edit]

For this. Konig/talk 20:39, 27 October 2011 (UTC) ^Once more. Now that many bad images have been removed, I can properly resume my work! Huzzah! Konig/talk 21:49, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

TANKS[edit]

thanks for switching the main page back. the images are fine at 175 the person who changed them dost realize that only one sticks out and it dost stretch the page. could u by chance push the feature forward?-User Zesbeer sig.png Zesbeer 05:04, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Is there a particular reason not to give MKT the standard 2 weeks feature time and change it Monday? - Tanetris 06:29, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
There isn't other than it being a Halloween-themed feature. Konig/talk 06:34, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Censorship[edit]

Funny your reaction to an attempt to raise awareness of very real censorship that will likely break the internet as you and I know it. You react to it by censoring it. At least we all know where your loyalties lie, now. And they are not with freedom of expression.

Try graffitiing the office of any civil liberties lawyer you could name, I would bet they will at the very least throw you out and clean it up, if not press charges. Vandalism is vandalism, whether it's for a good cause or not. If anything, vandalism for a good cause does more to damage that cause's credibility than promote it. - Tanetris 16:36, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
As I said on my talk page, the placement of the linked image was very deliberate so as not to disrupt the rest of the page layout. That is not vandalism, because vandals don't care what they do to a page. I do. That's why the image was placed as it was. Or would you rather have the GW community remain in ignorance of this issue which, I remind you, could threaten even this wiki with being shut down?
May i ask what is being censored here because the only thing i see is the removal of vandal posts (being posts that have nothing to do with the game). Da Mystic Reaper 17:59, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
What is being censored is a linked image bringing awareness of an issue that could threaten this wiki with being shut down. All it takes under SOPA is just one accusation, without any proof, for that to happen. Tell me that doesn't concern you, Mystic. Also, all banning and comment removal are in fact merely different forms of censorship. Sites like this one can exist without them, it's just that many people are so accustomed to this way of doing things that they don't want to try anything different.
No i for one am not woried because this is a game wiki not a political wiki, there are no political subjects on this wiki since it isn't part of the game. There are also no subjects that could even be subject to censorship and if so it will only be in the country it is forbidden in, in this case your oh so typical arrogant America with it's increasingly fucked up politics (freedom of speech). Please keep political topics on social media and don't bother gamers with it, this wiki if for info about Guild Wars not about american political issues. But let me repeat it GWWiki is in no danger of being closed down whatsoever, it can be blocked in America at most so tough luck for you americans. Da Mystic Reaper 18:33, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
Wrong. GW - and therefore, this wiki - contains dozens of references to other works in many of its skill names and other things. Should any of the originators of said references not like that their content has been reflected here, all it would take is a single accusation of infringement on their part to shut down the wiki. Censorship and website shutdowns are not limited to political sites only. Under SOPA, any site that references another work can be a target. ANY site.
First let me say this; Do you actually believe it yourself that something as ridiculous as SOPA is going to make it trough.
Second; Like i said if such a ridiculous thing as SOPA is going to make it trough it only affects americans since it will only be blocked in America wich does not mean the end of this wiki since it is also being maintained by non-americans like us europeans. Americans only simply won't be able to use it so again tough luck for them.
Now please stop bothering wich such ridiculous topics and keep the panic talk to yourself, you sound like a religious The World Is Going To End!!! preacher. Da Mystic Reaper 19:29, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
Sadly, you underestimate how deeply entrenched Hollywood influence is in DC. Are you also aware of the multiple attempts by the US at enforcing its laws on other countries? Even going so far as to attempt to extradite a UK citizen for things which were legal in the UK but not in the US? You also forget that Anet is based in the US, so SOPA can be used against it. And it's not just website shutdowns that SOPA allows, but also complete cutoffs by payment providers such as Paypal, Visa, and Mastercard. How long do you think Anet would last without them?
OK stop right there America has by no means such power and influence and any american who think his/her country does have so if foolishly mistaken since America is no longer concidered a superpower and has very limited influence and power since the financial crisis caused after they lost the war (yes lost since the objective was to deplete Americas finances trough a war wich they succeeded in wich makes it a loss for America, heck wich war of all the wars they waged did they ever managed to win since WW2?). If you are thinking about Anonymous keep in mind NCsoft wich finances Anet is located in South Korea and isn't concidered a criminal orginasation, with the wiki gl for any nation shutting off wikipedia. The pressure America will be facing from the game industry (wich is the biggest in the world) and supported by many more industries of technology will make them back off and immediatly since America is powerless against those industries who have more money, power and influence than America ever had. Now that you know that America has no such power to achieve such goals ends this foolish discussion on this talk page wich does not belong to either of us. Da Mystic Reaper 20:25, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
Everything you just said is wrong, and I now doubt your sanity. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 21:09, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
Man, this is a GAME wiki, not a stupid political forum! You're just dirting this place with your political nonsenses. And i don't care if your it's a just cause, the fact is that this is the WRONG PLACE for things like that. --User Kyx signature Skull.gifKyx 21:45, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
I lol'd at this entire section. IP is solid troll. -Auron 23:49, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Been a long time[edit]

Merry Christmas!User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 03:00, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Bureauthing[edit]

I nominated you. Just a heads-up. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 16:15, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Interesting. - Tanetris 19:17, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
Well then GL! :). Da Mystic Reaper 20:40, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

I thank you for your honesty. But seeing as you just down right loathe me and have never taken the time to even converse with me you have no idea weither or not I "have neither the wisdom nor the maturity for the job". You did kick/block me from IRC for simply being there. User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 20:23, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

I know I cand do it and I know I can keep a level head while being completely un-biased. I just dont want to see the wiki destroyed by vandals. Even if it isnt me, the wiki needs somebody thats still here and that is going to be here. You used to see the sysops on here constantly now the wiki feels somewhat abandoned and left to the vandals. Leaving us users helpless to stop them and all we can do is revert/report without hearing/seeing anything from the sysops for days. Silver Edge would be good. User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 20:32, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
I watch everything. Let's hit some highlights of your most recent contribs, in the past 24 hours:
You confuse Farlo for Fabian
You confuse editing the wiki with an external program with editing GW texture files and when corrected, stubbornly insist that irrelevant links are relevant
Moved a guild page to the wrong name (there's no such thing as a guild name with a capital letter without a space)
Took 4 edits to still not get this one right
You edit recklessly, and doing that as a sysop would be disastrous, regardless of good intentions. I have no particular personal feelings regarding you other than that I would not be interested in socializing with you, which I can just as easily say about many editors both good and bad. I'd have to look through logs to see the specifics of why I blocked you on IRC, but I honestly can't remember a time that you were in IRC that you weren't being disruptive about one thing or another, so I'm going to assume for the moment it was that. - Tanetris 21:20, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
I cant think of one time I was being disruptive on IRC. Yes I've made mistakes here in the last couple days but that is due to being rusty on the wiki. If my comments about you are false then I retract them and apologise for them. But none of the mistakes are serious and were easily fixed. The last one I was looking for a solution when somebody else fixed it. I was having to go through the table to find the error. Again I am a little rusty and these mistakes will not continue. User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 21:29, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Looking at the above, all errors are from editing in multiple tabs and cofusing myself. I apologize User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 21:32, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
That is also not cofusion. I gave him the closest links to editing files externally. May be wrong but it is the closest thing on the wiki. User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 21:35, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
I'd expect anyone requesting adminship to understand and use the "Show preview" button at the very least. That's all that I wanted to point out. It didn't just happen on Diamond Aegis either; it happens to you a lot more often than should be necessary. Other than that I'm not involving myself with your RfA, so good luck on that. I feel Tanetris voiced the general trend that this RfA will experience in advance, though. - Infinite - talk 21:43, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
What ever happens happens. I'm not gonna take it down. I honestly didnt expect to become a sysop but I had to get it out of the way. The wiki does need somebody thats gonna be here whoever that may be. User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 21:51, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
@Infinite I use the "Show preview" button but in my experience there are certain things that it will not show. If I try several things in show preview and it doesnt show any change then I go ahead and save it. It is very easy to "undo" anything.User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 21:55, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
If the issues can be solved (and by that I mean the general pattern of editing, not those specific diffs), then you need to solve them before I, or I think most others, are going to trust you with sysop tools. If you're rusty with the wiki, work out the rust. If you're confusing yourself with multiple tabs, don't use multiple tabs. If you're rushing too much, slow down. If you don't have enough time to do everything you want on the wiki, either do less or make time. If you don't have the knowledge needed, either go find out or leave it be and let someone else field it. If you don't understand how exactly Show Preview works, learn (specifically, the only time Show Preview should not work correctly is when a page is transcluded into itself (e.g. Templates)). Fix all of that and stick to it long enough to prove that it is fixed, and then you might be ready to start an RfA. The stakes are higher as an admin, and if you sysop anything like you edit, you will be damaging the wiki. There are reasons we don't just autopromote anyone who volunteers. - Tanetris 02:04, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Questions[edit]

I have a couple questions on a unrelated topic. Do you mind if I send you a message? User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png Drogo Boffin 21:51, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

The "Email this user" link is above and to your left, if it's important. - Tanetris 02:04, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
