So I logged in today to get some screenshots for inspirational art on a game I am working on. I wandered around on my Paragon in Nightfall. Then got on my Ele who was in GToB. Curiously, I wandered over to HA where I was confused by the current metagame. Since there was no way I could play HA, I made my way to RA where I failed alot (I went profession but Ranger) because I was out of practice. Finally, I got on my warrior and chopped up some bitches.
On my journey, I learned a few things:
Costumes and decorative headgear?
My monking skills have atrophied the most. I can't Monk by watching the field (perhaps because I need new contacts and can't see lol)
At the moment, I do not actively play Guild Wars so I don't regularly use the wiki. I can still be reached via email and AIM for emergency admin tasks if needed and I do check in every once in a while. (I also actually reference this wiki for my classes more often than you'd think). Largely due to my work with GuildWars Wikia I am now very interested and excited by wikis in general and often draw on my experiences working here. I'm currently doing an independent study on MediaWiki for game design documentation and design doc organization.
Hi, I'm Heather. I'm a real girl and I like to think of myself as pretty fun and easy-going. I work in the games industry.
I was an active PvPer and PvEer and my favorite classes to play are Paragon (spiking, breaking pve), Elementalist (nuking and snaring) and monking (RC and HB/infuse).
I'm also a sysop here on GuildWars Wikia. As a sysop, I do basic clean up and the janitorial work required of a sysop. Additionally, I am also a bureaucrat. I probably won't be doing much as a bureaucrat that I don't already do as a sysop. In both roles, I try to serve as a protector of GuildWars Wikia. I try to keep my eye on everything and take part in all aspects and namespaces of the wiki. I try not to let the insane amounts of power at my fingertips go to my head. You can find information on my admin behavior over at the admin info page.
According to my resume:
GuildWars Wikia Administrator - Online community Sysop, Bureaucrat
GuildWars Wikia is the unofficial wiki for the MMO Guild Wars. Appointed sysop then
bureaucrat by earning respect and trust of the community. Participated in
discussions of policy, formatting, content. Extensive experience with MediaWiki
Pretty much all the stuff for my user page is my own. I did get the menu tabs from User:Thedarkmarine. I've always wanted to have tabs like that and I was glad I found someone who had already done it so I could see where to go. If you like my user page and want to copy design elements (that is, you want to take some ideas or some code; not the whole thing! I want to be somewhat unique), I want credit and let me know on my talk page is all I ask.
My page doesn't work right in Internet Explorer. You should just download Firefox cause it's ten times better but if you are being a pain.... here.
