I am undenting so maybe we can return to the issue, the use of ''attribute'' vs. ''attitude''. The use of the word attitude, is misplaced, it normally refers to how one thinks or feels about something. Better alternatives for the word ''attribute'' could be ''quality'', ''feature'', ''proficiency'' or ''skill''. [[User:Amy Awien|Amy Awien]] 11:35, May 24, 2011 (UTC)

: I think what Ariyen may be referring to is the meaning ''the arrangement of the parts of a body or figure : posture'', which does play some role in kung fu However, it would probably be nicer if a simile could be found out of the game world - maybe something referring to the monastery in Factions, or to the Asura. --[[User:M.mendel|◄mendel►]] 13:30, May 24, 2011 (UTC)

:: Mhh, posture and attitude can have similar meanings, I am not familiar with Kung Fu thing though, wp mentiones ''stances'', but they have a very specific meaning in GW. Would ''[[:wikipedia:Qi|Chi]]'' or ''Qi'' be something, but that doesn't appear in GW, I think ....[[User:Amy Awien|Amy Awien]] 14:42, May 24, 2011 (UTC)

damn copycats, if this wiki. damn

May I inform you that GuildWiki existed before wiki.guildwars.com? The community has moved on to guildwiki.org now, and if you check the history of some prophecies pages there or here, you'll find they're older than their GuildWars Wiki counterparts. --◄mendel► 21:40, February 22, 2011 (UTC)
Agreed. However, they're all wikis and to scream copycat is ridiculous. Especially when many have and may edit some of the same pages on more than one wiki. Just there are differences in details, etc. between the wikis. Ariyen 21:57, February 22, 2011 (UTC)

Attribute vs. Attitude

There is no theme where attitude would fit better then attribute - and whithout such a theme using such, even small, pieces of mockery appear more like trolling then anythhing. Sorry to say so.

As for 'theme, if fanfiction is the new path I suggest focussing the main page on the stories of the game, with only a few entries into the mechanics site of the game. Maybe invite players to write a story around yesterday's (or last weeks) Zaishen Bounty/xxx and off course, once those do get written, a few sentences from the most recent of such stories.

Meanwhile, random nonsense like this will put off anyone who happens to drfit near this wikia. Unless off course that is the intention. Amy Awien 18:07, May 23, 2011 (UTC)

It's fan fiction, are you seriously that blind? Oh my goodness, go to guildwiki or the official , if you want it to be "completely" official and no fan fic. It says fanfic. There is a section on the side of the page asking for more fan fiction stories, etc. Seriously, guildwiki moved. It was discussed and I'm sorry you missed out. Ariyen 19:43, May 23, 2011 (UTC)
Here let me quote for you "Welcome to GuildWars Wikia ,an 'unofficial fanfic' wiki for ArenaNet's Competitive Online RPG, Guild Wars." bolded the parts, in case you missed it.
And the site msg, "May has been officially declared "fandom month" here on GuildWars Wikia. Please post your best GuildWars fanfic or fan artor video!" Ariyen 19:47, May 23, 2011 (UTC)
FYI to anyone here who has same issue as Amy... It was given permission by Mendel in Irc to do the Main Page into a fan fiction. If you have a problem with any fan fiction, take it up with Mendel, but do note the quotes. This wiki is a fan fiction wiki now, the Guild Wiki Team moved from here and so all of the actual documentation are relocated and on their pages. There's also the official wiki that handles actual documentation, we don't need to be a third, hence fan fic, turning some of the actual information like Nicholas the Traveler into some fan fiction, while still holding basic facts in a fictional way. I know we appreciate the help, but I don't think we need problems or issues. This community has "shrunk" and is barely surviving on the few that edit here. Ariyen 20:19, May 23, 2011 (UTC)
You seriously need to work on your attitude, 'blind'? I suggest you lighten up and communicate in a normal way.
I have not seen any argument as to why attitude fits better with a fan-fiction oriented site then attribute.
Btw, have you written any guildwars fan-fiction here? Just curious.
Amy Awien 20:34, May 23, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I have done other pages on here besides the main page. I mentioned one of them above. Btw, you're the one needing to lighten up, not me. :-) I'm here to have fun and do "fictional" work, like updates to things in a fictional way.
Btw, attitude goes with Kung fu, sort of a hint at the attitudes people were having in game on their professions, be it assassin, elementalist, monk, etc... I don't think I need to explain myself further to one whom is sadly, but clearly blind to fan fiction, also one who questions another's work on fan fiction with out clear knowledge of fan fiction. :-) Ariyen 21:17, May 23, 2011 (UTC)
