Hello. Kurtan 20:48, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

hai — Scythe / 20:14, 3 Aug 2010 (UTC)
Your sigs timestamp is still borked. Kurtan 20:54, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
i dont think so, the #time function references the server, i think my coding is fine but there is lag in the time O.O — Scythe / 20:14, 3 Aug 2010 (UTC)
strike that Q_Q ill have to look at it— Scythe / 20:14, 3 Aug 2010 (UTC)
hao about nao — Scythe 12:44, 4 Aug 2010 (UTC)


Um, it may have changed, but it was my understanding that those animations would (eventually) be added to the default infobox so you wouldn't have to edit every single skill to add the animation. --JonTheMon 18:13, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

hmm i dont think so, when i upload it, i then check the page & add the link, nothing there is automated i dont think. I'd check the template — Scythe 18:15, 5 Aug 2010 (UTC)
Actually, it does add the link automatically. click the clock at the top if it's not showing up in the infobox. --JonTheMon 18:16, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
0.o awesome thx for the heads up, ill try that :) — Scythe 18:19, 5 Aug 2010 (UTC)

On the same topic, but slightly different discussion. Can you please use a different background color? The animations are impossible to see. -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 18:24, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

check ur monitor's colors then, red on black is veryvisible (could always use white armor & dags if you would perfer) plz answer before i record the next 1. — Scythe 18:28, 5 Aug 2010 (UTC)
Most of the assassin animations have black components, which are completely invisible. :( -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 05:57, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
really? The only ones i've noted are the dancing daggers / cipping dag / disrupting dag style things, where you "throw" a dagger at the target. — Scythe 17:32, 6 Aug 2010 (UTC)
Mayhaps you could upload some with default or white backgrounds for comparison? --JonTheMon 19:14, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
i can do default, white i can only do if kuld uploads a texmod for white everything, but sure, Default, pick a skill that you think would be a good example. — Scythe 19:16, 6 Aug 2010 (UTC)
How about impale and mantis touch? --JonTheMon 19:18, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Sure. btw, check RC, the latest ones are in white armor + dags, which is better? — Scythe 19:19, 6 Aug 2010 (UTC)
Mantis Touch animation2.gif i see what you mean about the black, impale is no different, however green = 20% larger files. — Scythe 19:32, 6 Aug 2010 (UTC)
Why have you left out the top part of the animation (I think there's something above the character's head that's been chopped off)? -- pling User Pling sig.png 19:36, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
On the black Mantis Touch I so didn't notice the black circle. And I'm not a fan of the grass sticking up. are there any dummies away from tall grass? --JonTheMon 19:41, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) @ pling to conserve filesize, its the same as every other deadly arts "above head" animation btw pling, why do you nitpick everything i do? im curious.
@Jon ill check, not sure, this is just the dummy the project page says to use ;\ — Scythe 19:43, 6 Aug 2010 (UTC)
I think it would be best to include all parts of the animation. If I nitpick, it's only to improve something (which is why we're all here), not because I have something against you personally. -- pling User Pling sig.png 19:54, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

(Reset indent) (Edit conflict) Yeah, make sure you don't cut off the casting symbol. I think the white armored char looks better if you're using a black background. I know at least every shadow step uses a black cloud animation, so you might check into those first. The ideal background would probably be 50% grey, but you should use the default (at least, for the animations with black) until you can get a grey bg. -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 19:53, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

but i dont wanna redo 25 animations :( — Scythe 19:57, 6 Aug 2010 (UTC)
That's fine, just do the rest of them without cutting off the top, then go back and redo the first ones later if you have free time. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 20:16, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
mm kay ;\ — Scythe 21:27, 6 Aug 2010 (UTC)


Just curious, what all do you have to do at your school as an NHS member, in the way of attending meetings and events? And what was the application process like? I think at my alma mater both were a bit extraordinary compared to most schools. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 18:03, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

well, im not going to lie to you, we are only ~250 people. But ill give you the basics. Have a GPA that dosnt drop below a 95, attend a meeting every week, and do 20hrs of community service per school year, alongside attending 7 "group activities" (of which there are usually 8 or 9) a group activity is simply organized by your chapter leader. Hope this helps — Scythe 18:06, 6 Aug 2010 (UTC)
Hmm. At my school, the requirement for admission was a high GPA, I forget what exactly. Maybe above a 3 on the 4-point scale. But the admission process was ridiculous. You had to write an essay and get two letters of recommendation, and then the head of the chapter would ask every single teacher who'd had each student for their thoughts on that particular student. Apparently enough of my teachers raised objections that I was barred from entry. I was, in fact, the only student that had ever happened to. Pretty funny. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 18:28, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
we have the whole essay, letters, interrogation questioning inquiry stage as well, i just did it in the 6th grade (3 yrs ago) kinda forgot about it ;\ — Scythe 18:35, 6 Aug 2010 (UTC)
Oh what. Only juniors and seniors were in the NHS at my school. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 18:37, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
0.o we had the NJHS (junior society) in 6th -> 8th, freshmen + you can be added to NHS, which i was. They just say "you still pass, congrats" with that glazed over look in their eyes — Scythe 18:39, 6 Aug 2010 (UTC)
My grade school was part of that trend back in the 90's to eliminate honors and advanced groups because they made the average kids feel dumb. I spent 10 years in hell. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 18:48, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
D: ouch — Scythe 18:49, 6 Aug 2010 (UTC)


Ok, regarding your reasons for RfC:

  1. You keep on bringing that up, and it's still not relevant. And it is something that might be a negative for an admin; Wyn is just the archetype
  2. A hostile response to someone trolling, verified trolling by #3
  3. Again, verified by subsequent edits by other GWfanatic users
  4. Seems like it needs more looking into/clarification to the casual user.

--JonTheMon 13:48, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Really scythe, I thought you said you were going to stop on why's talk page. You really should just stop just as you said would. --Lania User Lania Elderfire pinkribbon.jpg 16:31, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
i did "stop" im not bringing it up anymore, doesn't mean i cant expand my vote. also, mind if i make your signature transparent background? white is ugly. — Scythe 17:33, 27 Aug 2010 (UTC)
nvm, selector is considdering the very light pink edges to be white :3 — Scythe 17:41, 27 Aug 2010 (UTC)


You're against Misery now? - Mini Me 16:50, 30 August, 2010 (UTC)

Also, Misery is a dude. - Mini Me 16:54, 30 August, 2010 (UTC)
no, never seen anything in the direction of supporting from misery. I thought since he was going out w/ frosty he was a she :o. — Scythe 17:04, 30 Aug 2010 (UTC)
No, they're actually gay. - Mini Me 20:05, 30 August, 2010 (UTC)
And pretty hot, or so I've heard. - Mini Me 20:06, 30 August, 2010 (UTC)
Evidence of me supporting someone. That is a text-book example of how to provide effective evidence of something. Also I am a very pretty girl and I'd appreciate people not spreading nasty rumours about me. Misery 21:45, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
1) i was fairly sure i was right mini. 2) i wasnt registered during that election (registered jan. 2010) — Scythe 23:32, 30 Aug 2010 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Guys, stop trolling him, please. - - Reanimated X 06:48, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

reanimated, ty first of all. But when i was b& i went to PvX, i have learned teh wayz of teh trollz. Also, ip trolling me & Misery on my talk page is unacceptable, removed. — Scythe 13:35, 31 Aug 2010 (UTC)
Scythe, I assure you that Misery is a good man, an acceptable woman, and a mediocre horse. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 13:57, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
makes u a lowly jackass (male donkey) dont it? — Scythe 14:50, 31 Aug 2010 (UTC)
Learning how to troll from PvX is like learning how to dance from a quadriplegic. If you want to really learn how to troll, then I suggest looking into the contributions of people like Ariyen or Iffy (Goodnight L A). Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 14:53, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
ffs, just stop it. And I mean both sides. Just drop it. --Lania User Lania Elderfire pinkribbon.jpg 15:20, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
Both sides of what? Were people arguing? Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 15:28, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
how about this, KJ cant post in this section, or ill remove the comments (which is apparently legal). Hes really the only one still pushing this... — Scythe 15:40, 31 Aug 2010 (UTC)
The hell? Pushing what? --User Oneshot O.JPGne shot. 15:42, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Er, you can't remove comments. Even from your own talk page, I believe. ShadowRunner 15:43, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
You can on PvX, but I don't know about here. Also, what am I pushing? I'm confused. Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 15:44, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
You can only remove comments if they are trolling and/or flaming. Also, I believe KJ's comment wasn't even directed at you, Scythe.... - Mini Me 16:03, 31 August, 2010 (UTC)
Well, it was, but it was actually meant to be helpful advice. Ariyen and Iffy were spectacular trolls, and most PvX users are terrible trolls, hence the metaphor. Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 16:04, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
I was about to strike through that last part when you commented, because apparently I am unable to read. - Mini Me 16:05, 31 August, 2010 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Wait, did you call me a jackass? I'm wounded and bewildered. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 16:15, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

(Edit conflict) (Reset indent) this moved very, very fast... pushing "this" = what epic trollfest that my RfR vote has created, and subsequent trolling / me losing respect from some ppl. Felix, i meant that if misery is a horse, makes u a donkey, and ur a guy (i think O.O) = male donkey = jackass = less 2 type. cant believe how much drama that comment made ;o — Scythe 16:33, 31 Aug 2010 (UTC)

^ got ec'd D: also, felix instead of <small> (reset indend) </small> {{ri}} or {{reset indent}} are much shorter ^^ — Scythe 16:37, 31 Aug 2010 (UTC)
Right you would be, sir... if I had in fact typed <small> (reset indent) </small>. But what I actually typed was {{subst:ri}}, which copies the template's text directly onto the page. This both reduces server load by not transcluding and reduces the damage done if some madman were to vandalize our formatting templates. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 17:00, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
i kno wut SUBST: is (substitute), didnt think of the reduces server load business — Scythe 17:24, 31 Aug 2010 (UTC)


Stop with what you're doing, I can tell you it's going to end badly. Reaper of Scythes** User Reaper of Scythes Juggernaut1.png 22:04, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

D: i have a right to using the AN, dont i? Other than that im not doing anything remotely "wrong". Tagging KJ's image is perfectly legal, considering it flaunting one's powers and attacking me. Plus, if i get Perma'd, i wont particularly care, in the last month the wiki has really declined. I lied, first half is a lie but second is sad but true. Spose i really need to get back to skill animations, or better yet, do my homework that i've been putting off for like 5hrs. — Scythe 22:08, 2 Sep 2010 (UTC)


I just wanted to say sorry if I came across as offensive. If I had a better day I can assure you I would have made sure that my comments were less aggressive. I just personally disagree with pretty much all the current drama and responded rather harshly. Sorry again, and I'll stay off your back. However please take the advice above and try to tone down what you're doing. The whole thing is going rather OTT. ShadowRunner 22:12, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

np, its just... you always replying first to, well everything i said for like an hour negatively came across as rather stalker-like harassment 0.O. I actually (granted im bias, but still...) find that what i've done today has been nothing but trying to "snuff the flames of drama and personal attacks", while raising 2 (or was it 3?) valid points that got trolled by the bandwagon. Which is getting rather old "scythe said something quick guys rip on it!!!" :( — Scythe 22:17, 2 Sep 2010 (UTC)
I was stalking RC at the time, which might explain the responding first aspect. ShadowRunner 22:22, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

A Word of Advice[edit]

I've done my fair share working to change the way things work around here. I've even done my fair share of what could easily be designated as rabble-rousing (see, for example, my first bid for bureaucratship way back when I first joined this site, well before most folks around here had ever heard of me). You'll notice, however, that while my actions back then (as well as some of my subsequent actions) caused a fair bit of drama, I've never been banned. Moreover, since then, a lot of the things that I wanted to change have changed, I'm currently a sysop, and I used to be a bureaucrat.

With that said, you're quite simply engaging in folly. While I respect the fact that you genuinely think that what you're advocating is correct/that you're doing the right thing--and heck, maybe you're right, maybe there's some objective sense in which the wiki would be better off if Auron wasn't an administrator--the manner in which you gone about trying to convince people, dare I say it, your abrasive manner of communication, has you headed toward a permanent ban. And what have you accomplished? Little or nothing. Persisting in the face of trolling is one thing; repeating the same tired mantra in the face of reasoned (not to mention overwhelming) opposition is quite another.

You want to bring attention to an issue that you perceive; fine. However, if in the process of bringing that issue to the attention of the community, you cause that community to lose respect for you--or if you never did much to earn that respect in the first place--you're going to be treated as little better than a troll. Like I said, I've done a bit of rabble-rousing myself, but there's a difference between the two of us: I may cause drama, but my argumentation remains measured and rational, even in the face of opposition and even when I care about the subject matter a great deal. Whether or not you're being trolled, the fact remains that your own actions have left you more or less without an ounce of credibility, so please, do yourself a favor and either drop it or find a new way to go about pursuing your agenda. — Defiant Elements +talk

Oh, and if it wasn't already clear from my previous statement, the fact that your intentions are good isn't going to prevent you from being permabanned forever. And no, that's not a threat; it's an observation. — Defiant Elements +talk 23:43, 2 September 2010 (UTC)


Violets are red, Roses are blue, Guildwars sucks and their wiki does too. --Neil2250 User Neil2250 sig icon6.png 20:14, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

I don't think anyone will miss you, so bye. - Mini Me 21:40, 3 September, 2010 (UTC)
That's probably enough. You can start trolling him if he comes back with another round of drama. --Lania User Lania Elderfire pinkribbon.jpg 22:10, 03 September 2010 (UTC)

Oops. Koda User Koda Kumi UT.jpeg Kumi 20:29, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
First, I'm sorry, I just re-read what I wrote and "Don't do it again." comes off harsher than I intended. One of the dangers of typing something out in a hurry. Also, here is a link with info on lyric and song copyrights, just in case you wanted any additional confirmation on this. Essentially any song lyrics are under copyright of the author of those lyrics. The author can of course release their copyright, but 99%+ of any music that you buy (whatever format CD, MP3, etc...) will not be able to be posted here. --Rainith 01:41, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
np, didnt read it as harsh at all, was just confused cuz there was UF's lyrics, thought they were fair game or sumtin ^^ — Scythe 1:46, 11 Sep 2010 (UTC)
