A changing event

I have to say that this real life changing event sadly had gotten poor responses in the gaming world that I had never expected at all...  I knew this person was getting tired of my style of "capes" or choice of words, much less mtsc. Majority wanted us both to stay together as co-leaders. they liked this... When one was inactive - the other was active. It just tension happens and often deals from real life. I had respected her of her real life and gave her time if she needed it... However, I just feel like that was not the case with me.  I knew an event that happened with this "A. M." thing and her involvement. I would no doubt feel what she felt... I just hope she held no jealousy, but I feared she did in some ways... She was hostile a bi…

The Best Moments of Guild Wars History - Submit Your Comments

Calling all MMO fans!

I'm excited to announce that Wikia will be creating a Key Moments in MMO History video. This video will give viewers insight on some of the genre's best games, and the best moments from those games. We want to know which moments of the Guild Wars history have resonated with players the most!

What is the most important moment in Guild Wars History?

27 dadys left...what are you planning to do first in GW2?

Myself I think that as I play my first char in GW2 which will be a human elementalist, keeping with the tradition from guild wars named Rain of Regret. I will also be looking for any achievements that may not be listed those that might require doing something or another to trigger. If any may exist. Not that I will hold my breath expecting them or looking for them, but i will / would not be suprised to find them. Any one else? What are you plans?

34 days and counting down!

There are only 34 more days until the long awaited Guild Wars 2 game is released. Like you were not counting the days yourself. Well another day another platinum. I personally have 25/50 for my Hall of Monuments and am wondering is there anyone out there that is also scrambling for the best that they can get between now and the release. I would really like to find a partner or seven that is interested in grouping together and getting all that we can get done and more by working together... If you are interested give me a shout in game my main char name is Rain of Regret. See you in game.

What's the best race and class to be?

I'm new to the GuildWars world and i've already pre-order Guild Wars2. And i have no clue what race or class i want to be. I'd like some some help, for example what race works best with what class. And since I' know 0 people who are planning on playing this game I was wondering what would be best for soloing. So there is everything in a nut shell, also thanks you to anyone who can guide me in some direction.

My thoughts on this wiki.

For the most part and for those who do not know what is or has gone on with the proposed changes, etc. Mendel went with his ideas. While I, more-so, agreed with Felix and was under the impression of most of us editors heading that direction.. I was not the only one with fan fiction with the editors like Felix, Gilgathrash, kirbman, etc. having done these changes. I feel this outweighs the "official" changes by Amy and Mendel. Mostly, Amy.

So without further notice. I will Post the discussion link here..

Enjoy and now may you see why it's better to go more towards fan fiction, instead of being the third documentive wiki. Something that I feel strongly Mendel had forgotten himself.

These changes, I prefer to see here. Actual documentive chan…

dealing with inaccurate advice on the wiki

It has been mentioned that it might be better to remove inaccurate advice from mainspace, rather than keeping it.

This would apply probably to most pre-update Dervish advice, and presumably lots of other hints and tips, probably on other professions as well. The affected pages would be guides (e.g. profession guides) and advice on other pages (e.g. notes on skill pages). What else is affected by rising inaccuracy?

Should we delete those pages and notes, or keep them? We could add "out of date" notices to them.

Should we keep backups? For every page, there's a more current one on , and probably on as well, so we don't really have to.

Please post your opinion in the comments so we can decide as a community on what to do.

Fictional announcements announced?

Should we announce the fictional announcement on the mainpage with a header or byline (other than the link at the bottom), or not?


My personal opinion is that it sort of spoils the joke if we do; that we're not really misleading because we don't claim that it's a login announcement at all. What do you think? (And should we have a poll on this?)

My biggest career dream is, of course, to once live off my art. But since chances of that happening are very slim and I'm a realist - at least in that regard - I will very soon start a job as a computer dogsboy. IF I understood the boss there correctly. Might be something else entirely... BUT one thing's fo sho: I'll work with computers.

Signature templates

In my quest to eliminate green puzzle pieces in the RTE, I've stumbled on pages like User:Skuld/Sig. There are 243 users with signature templates that I know of (= pages starting with User: and ending in sig or Sig or s/Signature).

  • If I substitute these, pages get lots of wikicode dumped on them, but the RTE would probably hide that. For most signatures, anyway.
  • I could replace them with plain links to the person's userpage (like the default for new accounts), but that would change their signatures.

This problem gets easier, but does not go away, with the purge of old User talk: pages, because these templates are used elsewhere as well. (Of course I'd like to delete old talk everywhere, but I fear that's not going to get consensus.)

What do you think?

Nobody dast blame this man.

Nobody dast blame this man. You don’t understand: Willy
was a salesman. And for a salesman, there is no rock bottom to
the life. He don’t put a bolt to a nut, he don’t tell you the law
or give you medicine. He’s a man way out there in the blue,
riding on a smile and a shoeshine. And when they start not
smiling back – that’s an earthquake. And then you get yourself
a couple of spots on your hat, and you’re finished. Nobody dast
blame this man. A salesman is got to dream, boy. It comes
with the territory.

Death of a Salesman

St Patrick's Day Theme

It's St Patrick's Day, and we're green! This is the test of what we've been trying to achieve over the past month: to make our articles independent of the underlying wiki theme. I changed the Theme using Special:ThemeDesigner, and copied a few colors to MediaWiki:Wikia.css from the resulting .css , and that was it. If you find pages with colors that look off, please report them here.

Oh, and if you have a better suggestion for the background, I'm listening. ;-)

Anonymous contributions?

Just an idea: considering the direction this wiki is going, does it still make sense to allow unregistered users to contribute? From what I've seen lately, many anonymous contributions have been vandalism or little better (no offense to those that meant well). I can see the need for anonymous contributions to an encyclopedic wiki, but I think contributors here have every reason to register at least.

Let's get rid of old user pages!

I've been engaging in some wiki maintenance lately, and I noticed that a lot of maintenance is expended on user pages that haven't been touched for years, with the users presumably gone for good. For example, going through Special:WantedFiles, I found pages like [ this one] that have accumulated half a dozen maintenance edits, but had no real edit for 3 years.

To me, it makes no sense to keep fixing these; if the page is old, if the user is gone, why not delete it and save ourselves the burden of maintenance? To clear the maintenance backlog, I'd have to fix code and images on pages that nobody is ever going to need again; it makes more sense to delete them outright instead of maintaining them again and again.

I propose to delete user pages …

Then I logged on to Mystic Boer for a bit of hm and had a... bit of a breakdown. New thaughts: THEY RUINED MY CLASS! so I booted up wiki and looked up the changes... First thaught: What the hell... Is there anything they didn'n change? (As it turnes out, yes there is but not much)

The class feels like a warrior with a chance to hit multiple foes... It used to feel like a melee elementalist. Only problem is that it now does even less damage than a warrior and still has less armor. Keep your armor and keep your increased attack sp…

When my 16 yr old said it was the Canthan New Year last weekend, I was very surprised because it was also SuperBowl weekend and my Packers were in the SuperBowl. (And they won!)

My new Direction: Simplify

This blog post is an overview of how I see our present situation. I am writing it to explain the thrust of my current initiatives on this wiki. I realize that there are other ways to perceive our situation, and other initiatives that have merit, and I am committed to support anyone in their initiatives. However, this is what drives mine.

The Situation


The GuildWiki community created most of the content on this wiki. Apart from the community shrinking as Guild Wars gets less popular as a game, there were three surges of editors leaving:

  1. when ArenaNet created wiki.guildwars.com and tied it into the game
  2. when GuildWiki moved from being hosted by Gravewit to being hosted by Wikia
  3. when GuildWiki moved from being hosted Wikia to being hosted by curse…

South Africans on GW

Why is it that the South African community on GW seems invisible? I mean if the Polish and the Russians get their own districts on GW, why shouldn't we? Not all of us speak English as our 1st language, although I must admit that a substancial amount do... But there are also alot of us who speak Afrikaans (NO, IT'S NOT DUTCH)... Who would like to be able to talk to one another in our native and proud language wiithout the natives going rampant; as if we're heritics.

Monobook colors

We've been starting some work on making this wiki readable again after the color theme change. Unfortunately, we're running into issues where it's hard to make it look good in both the dark Oasis and the white Monobook skins, and we have to make compromises and work-arounds to avoid "breaking" the page in the other skin. It's increasing the workload on the editors, and in my opinion is bound for failure anyway, unless everything is just bland and limited to a small handful of colors that each must be defined differently between the skins by using classes (See the Sandbox for examples).

What do you think of changing the color theme of Monobook to be closer to the current Oasis colors? It would still be functionally Monobook, but it will make…

Main Page Redesign

We've already changed the old "stack of boxes" design into something more fluid, and "imported" some sidebar features from other wikis.

In general, I'd like to add more "community" features to the page, such as an input box that lets people create articles about their favorite GW web sites or videos. All blog posts in Category:Community blog should be listed someplace prominent, too.

How about relegating the old "List'o'Links" to an "information portal"? Of course, the community portal might be part of this redesign - do we need 3 portals? One for readers to get active, one for editors to use, one for finding stuff?

*tap tap* Ahem! So, now what?

This place seems pretty much deserted right now. And I'm not seeing any discussions anywhere about what we might do with this whole GW@W thing. We have two other wikis for encyclopedias, and guru probably holds a solid spot for chatter and speculation and that kind of thing, especially given ANet's presence there. So what options are even left? I've seen fanfic come up, but is that it? Also, is anyone even around here, still?

Can't away from you guys for a second...

I don't know how I missed all the buzz about "Oasis" coming up but I'm surprised how it snuck up on me. As an old admin and formally a major contributor here, I have to have an opinion on all this. And I do, but I need to think.

But I wanted to get a few things out before everyone goes totally crazy.

  1. I'm using the new skin now and I don't see ANY ads besides one on the main page. On here or elsewhere on Wikia
  2. Monobook is not going anywhere as an option for logged in users who set their preferences
  3. I'd give this look a chance before going soooo extreme and "moving"
  4. We freaked out over Monaco and got used to that.
  5. I have concerns too but I wouldn't say this is the end of the world
