Uploading Pictures[edit]

Hello Zemmy. I see that you are having fun uploading picture for weapons, which is perfectly fine, except for the fact that the black armor background makes it hard to see the weapon. Could you possibly use a different color armor set or take weapon SSs in the Shiverpeaks (white and bright)? Thanks for helping the community by completing the weapon pictures. --User:AlbinobirdAlbinobird 23:18, 2 April 2007 (EDT)

I took Scourge's idea, and finally replaced the picture. Coulda done it sooner but I forgot which character I had left it on.--Zemmy 12:25, 6 April 2007 (EDT)
Replying from my talk page: Not all of the images are dark, some though are hard to see, such as this: Example It would be much easier to see if you took the picture in a snowy area, if you have access to Prophecies. That is what I mean. Just so you know, you should sign your comments with --~~~~. --User:AlbinobirdAlbinobird 00:36, 3 April 2007 (EDT)
Try the isle of the nameless, it has good natural light -- Scourge User Scourge Spade.gif 02:39, 3 April 2007 (EDT)
When I meant Isle of the Nameless I forgot to include the map that BeXoR made: here, it has a nice background and is pretty much uniform in colour. -- Scourge User Scourge Spade.gif 20:43, 3 April 2007 (EDT)
That was what I used... well, maybe not specifically that angle or area. --Jen Zem 23:00, 3 April 2007 (EDT)

Weapon articles without salvage[edit]

Hi, I noticed you created some new weapon articles. You put "commonsalvage = Unknown | raresalvage = Unknown" into the articles... I want to let you know that you can omit that parameters if you don't know them - they default to "Not specified". - MSorglos 02:37, 3 April 2007 (EDT)

Another note from me: Category:Contains dust is for items that contain glittering dust. To tag items containing dust use [[Pile of Glittering Dust|Piles of Glittering Dust]]. Happy editing. - MSorglos 16:32, 5 April 2007 (EDT)
And still another note: the categories for salvage info are shorthand lowercase singular, e.g. Category:Contains iron or Category:Contains steel. Most common and rare material "Contains <xy>"-categories exists, so if you see a red category think about it ;). Happy further editing. - MSorglos 14:12, 9 April 2007 (EDT)


Your signature is currently in breach of GWW:SIGN. # Signatures must clearly show the full user name of the user. - BeXoR 22:39, 3 April 2007 (EDT)

it's so weird that you know that even though I didn't even use my sig after I had changed it. creepy.--Jen Zem 23:04, 3 April 2007 (EDT)
It's still in violation of the policy, it should be "Zemmy". -- Scourge User Scourge Spade.gif 23:08, 3 April 2007 (EDT)
oh, i see.... well then. I took out the nickname.--Zemmy 23:12, 3 April 2007 (EDT)
You used it once somewhere that I was watching and I couldnt figure out where you'd left the comment because the names were different between the edit and the page. ;P - BeXoR 23:23, 3 April 2007 (EDT)
haha yeah i did. but i thought u were talking about something else. XD oh well it's changed now. ;) *whistles*--Zemmy 23:45, 3 April 2007 (EDT)

Me again[edit]

Your page looks really good, but you might want to read GWW:USER. :P - BeXoR 23:00, 4 April 2007 (EDT)

ehh, i forgot to put in {{user image}}. is there a way i can still put it in? any other part of the page i should focus on?

edit>> oops, i just figured it out. --Zemmy 23:07, 4 April 2007 (EDT)

You should also read about the size limitations. At the moment your images exceed 100kb. It's usually suggested to put that kind of content on a subpage and link to it from the front page with a bit of a teaser. - BeXoR 23:21, 4 April 2007 (EDT)
I haven't found any of my pictures to be more than 100kb. or do you mean them all together? a sub page.. hmm. that's a good idea. So what you're suggesting is to put all the character stuff in there instead?--Zemmy 23:31, 4 April 2007 (EDT)
Yeah, it means total 100kb. Some people are trying to get it made higher, but for the time being, we have to follow that policy. Most people put their character information on a subpage, for example User:Zemmy/Characters. Then it might be a good idea to have one featured character per month and a bit of a description to give them an idea of whats on the subpage. - BeXoR 00:37, 5 April 2007 (EDT)
Oh, i just read that part. I don't know how I missed it the first few times I read it...even when it's italicized. alright, editing now. *strokes chin* I wonder what I should change the template to.--Zemmy 14:45, 5 April 2007 (EDT)
1 more thing,ive put delete tag on these images 1 2 3 4. upload again if you want to keep it. This time with the name User <username> <imagename> and tag it with {{user image}}, tnx ;) ~ KurdKurdsig.png05:18, 10 April 2007 (EDT)
Hey, thanks. I wanted to replace it, but I had no idea how to delete it. haha. there are more that I uploaded that really should have been deleted... like of my other characters, but I totally forgot what I uploaded it as. *strokes chin* I know they are of my characters. anyway, I'll be sure to put the username image name when I upload the new version.--Zemmy 14:58, 11 April 2007 (EDT)


A++ looks beautiful. :) - BeXoR 00:09, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

First compliment! yay! thank you! *blushes*--Zemmy 01:24, 6 April 2007 (EDT)
I agree, very original!, and you should have won the Halloween contest! ~ KurdKurdsig.png05:19, 10 April 2007 (EDT)
Thanks! XD I was pretty bummed out when I found out I didn't win since I spent so much time on it. ;) but at least I got acknowledged for the wintersday. :D Ooh, and the design a weapon contest will be announced on May. ;) I hope I get that one. haha!--Zemmy 14:57, 11 April 2007 (EDT)

Armor capitalisation[edit]

I got the rest of the pages, so no need to worry about those anymore. :)

Also something to watch out for is to try and use lower case as much as possible. For example, "Warrior ascended Gladiator's armor right.jpg", instead of "Warrior Ascended Gladiator's armor Right.JPG" (there were a bunch of those, got those too though).

Hope that makes sense. And thanks for adding those pages, by the way, they look great! Cheers. --Dirigible 02:18, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

haha, yeah. I noticed it after my like.. i don't know. 40th one that those links already existed, and that it was red because I unnecessarily capitalized some of the words. Thanks for helping to change them. if there are anymore armor pages that are still red, ill look out for the wordings next time. I didn't change the individual armor links's wording though. =X --Zemmy 12:20, 6 April 2007 (EDT)


I figure I'll just chop my userpage up into little pieces. AOTT 16:24, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

That works too haha. ;) I'm prolly gonna do the same. :)--Zemmy 16:26, 19 April 2007 (EDT)
