Welcome to the "other" wiki. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 20:50, November 15, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. Appreciate it. Watching Ice Age with baby girl. The last one. Hope things will improve for you. User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 20:53, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
TY. :) It's all a matter of time: 366 days to go. :/ RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 20:58, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
Heya, Ariyen! Welcome to the Original Guild Wiki. Hope you will be hang around here some.   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 22:17, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
Hope that "be" was intentional, TEF. ^_^ (Btw, don't call him Ernie, or he will blow you up!) RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 22:57, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, TEF. Does feel a bit friendlier here. :-) Not hostile quite much. User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 23:14, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
Stay friendly and explain your actions, and all will be good. :) RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 00:12, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
True. Summary is useful too. User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 00:14, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Within reason it's even necessary. :) RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 00:31, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Erm, typo above :-/ I can has proofreading. It is friendlier here (although, we, alas have our dramas). This is great place to be bold; on the whole, folks support the effort to make things better (even we they disagree with the method).   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 02:28, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Well, large numbers of people in general tend to be quite reliable drama generators (especially when they don't have to worry about someone beating their face for saying something ^_^), but it's how they deal with it afterwards that makes the difference. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 02:35, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

"Reliable drama generators." I've been talking to cable service about that.   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 02:49, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Oi, that just reminded me of my tv problem... I hate converter boxes. we lost half to most of our channels (Just while ago). Won't get cable, because had troubles with them. -.- oh well... 02:59, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Welcome to guildwiki! I'm a bad person! This message brought to you by myself because it's important to get to know the people you will be dealing with.

hehe, if you were. You'd kicked me outta the chat room. ^.^ 06:26, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Actually its because I have no power on IRC, I can't kick you, even if I didn't want to.--Łô√ë Roar.îğá†ħŕášħ is hosting a Card Creation Contest! 06:27, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Yah, apologies, Ariyen. I forgot to not warn you about the Gigster, so I didn't. Had I remembered, I still might not have, but then again, perhaps I wouldn't. (If you haven't already, check out Gig's user and talk pages to check out his MTG card sets based on GW and GWiki. Brilliant, except when they're fantastic.)   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 07:10, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

So uh, our birthdays are 1 day off, and our wedding days are 1 week off, and you stole my userbox?! :O RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 13:34, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

*sniffles*It's... It's pretty though! Sorry. User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 19:45, March 5, 2010 (UTC)
Lol, why you sniffles? :P That was just a note on how strangely close two of our life events are. ^_^ Seeing my userbox was what made me notice. :D And you're welcome to have any userbox you want and change them anyway you want. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 02:18, March 6, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. It is strange. :-) Have had many strange occurrences, but some are interesting. Admittedly, so is this one. User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 19:19, March 12, 2010 (UTC)


Why I reverted on my ip...

You'd want to go with the ease and comfort of the user, and either way would code well. It is better and easier to do {{ri}} for people instead of {{subst:ri}) The code it's self can be changed in the template. So don't be such a "d" if you have a problem with me reverting to a better more working code. User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 15:12, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
Duly noted, your page should be ignored in further runs of the bot RandomTime 15:28, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
Some runs aren't needed tbh, unless you're bored. :-)
The point of transcluding a template (leaving the template call in the article) is to be able to generate code dynamically. That is why all skills use a template to display skill info, for example - so that we can format that information uniformly for all skills and so that we can easily modify that format in the future without needing to edit every individual skill.
The point of substituting a template (replacing the template call with the generated code) is to have a commonly-used code snippet stored in one place that all users can refer to in order to insert that snippet into a page. These snippets should not be left as transclusions, because of server load as Viper already mentioned, and also because they will more than likely never require modification. If a template doesn't generate dynamic code (i.e. if it always generates the same thing), then there is absolutely no reason not to substitute it. "Ease and comfort of the user" doesn't factor into it. [edit, thought of an additional argument] If a template is ever deleted or renamed, then every page that transcludes that template will have to be edited to remove or fix the transclusion. Thus, non-dynamic templates should always be substituted in order to avoid this situation. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 16:46, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
Doesn't explain this though... if you guys are out to do all of that... Why should users use templates in the first place? Isn't the use of a template - to do the code so the user doesn't have to?
I don't understand your statement that we are "out to do all of that". You still use the template to generate the code, you don't have to write the code snippit, and from your view, all you did is place the template. Lots of people didn't subst the template, which is the reason I ran the bot. RandomTime 17:30, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
Edit template and have it to subst? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (contribs) 17:38, June 8, 2010 .
What? RandomTime 18:19, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
A template can't subst itself, that would be like touching your ear with your nose. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 18:23, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
Really? Hm, and I thought it was a possibility... o.O
With teh ols parser, I had one that did. I think it's no longer possible with the new parser, but I haven't really tried yet. --◄mendel► 18:43, September 7, 2010 (UTC)


I need something of a good template for my user page.... Thought I don't know to go on and do this or wait till wikia comes up with their changes. User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 03:34, September 4, 2010 (UTC)


If you want to hide your real name, ask the sysops here for help to either delete the page or hide the history. (They can probably also tell you what would make more sense.) (And, don't forget to check your preferences to make sure your email isn't visible to anyone.)  —Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 08:39, September 7, 2010 (UTC)

Wouldn't mind if they hid the history. email doesn't bother me, but linking to drama does. 08:47, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
The name you give in the preferences (and that you really ought to give in order to be able to enforce your copyrights) is visible in various ways that you can't turn off (that's the point). The email address in the preferences should not be visible to anyone unless you use Special:Emailuser to mail someone else; then it will be used as the sender address. (THis ensures that nobody can spam you this way unless they also have a valid return address.) TEF, if you know of a way for that email address to be exposed, please file a bug report. --◄mendel► 11:29, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
Deleted the name in preferences. Can you delete the history? (as I had nicely used my real name here, but was not intended to be linked into drama. I want the name gone. Those people have no respect on gww.) User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 16:41, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
Do you want this deleted as well? -- RandomTime 16:49, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
Nope. Doesn't link to real name. I have many different handles and names I use. X-) I could say my real name was like say Adria, Lyra, Crystal, etc. so long as it doesn't link to real name - I'm cool. User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 16:58, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
Basically, don't want someone to try to use something as fact, when it may not be. So, drama crap too. User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 16:59, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
If your name is anywhere on GW2W and you'd like to have it removed, I can take care of that for you. I'm offering here rather than there for no particular reason, though. Felix Omni Signature.png 17:03, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
Appreciate it. I don't think it's there. If is, I'll let you know here. I just am tired of people assuming, etc., instead of getting facts. I do have a busy enough life not to sock. For instance, right now I'm trying to help with our finances, take care of little one, plan a birthday party (not easy), help with family issues (grandma and relatives stuff = stressfull), and take time out a little bit to play the game to get away from it all or visit here and there a bit to try to do that. I get emails from friends and so they do what they do - I have no problems. I tell them my opinion and it's up to them what they do. I don't tell others what to do, never have. I give advice, but it's up to the others to either take it and use it or ignore it. In my past of adminship on star trek stuff and other things - most have used my advice. Lol, I was labeled counselor on a star trek irc server (that's gone now), because of how I am. No one considered me hostile, etc., and we didn't have bad trolls to deal with. Those that did try that stuff, learned quickly of their mistakes. gww is full of drama, trolls, and all that crap. 01:02, September 8, 2010 (UTC)

All fetid on the Eastern Frontier

Thanks for adding the eastern frontier farm this week. I heard people talking about it, but wasn't inspired to check out the competition compared to Ruins.  —Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 05:47, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. I don't agree with what the other person changed it as. It took me just as fast there as it would have in the mission. You just gotta know where they pop-up, etc. I did my first run there faster than I did in the Ruins. I'd re-edit it, but I'm not for a revert war. It's his opinion up there and not fact... I'd rather have an equal option, not "Unless ruins Fail" type wording as I call it. The type wording is rather idiotic and harsh, imo.User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 18:32, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

how you can help

I saw your offer to help with the images on IRC, and I've got something you can do now. My automated script to archive all the images is based on the database dump from September 30, so of course it won't be getting anything after that point.

What you can do: Monitor the upload log and save a copy on your computer of all images uploaded on or after September 30, starting with File:Oasis QR table.png. When we're finally ready to restore the wiki on the new server, I'll need you to send me all those files so I can add them to the master archive. Sound good? —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 04:28, October 5, 2010 (UTC)

I will do that. Thank you for letting me help. User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 22:22, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
After discovering a huge error in how I was getting the list of files (I explained it on my talk), I was able to incorporate all new/moved images up through October 19 in my new method of creating the master file list. I'm sorry for invalidating what you've done so far on this, but please continue monitoring all new images from today - my new method takes a very long time to run completely, so I'm not planning on running it again. Thanks! —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 21:20, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
Alright. will do. User Ariyen sig icon.gifriyen 00:12, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

Was wondering

Figured I'd post this here rather than gw2wiki... buuuuut. I was wonder, is there any GuildWiki equivilant of GWW:Category:Unimplemented_content or GWW:Category:Historical_content over here? Doing some research for GuildMag's next issue and couldn't find anything by similar names. Also, first. Konig Des Todes 16:09, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Well, I am banned from Gw2w and I feel very less likely of going back. So, I couldn't answer it over there anyway. I don't see any of the articles here, but I think the best person to ask would be Ishmal or one of the other b-crats and admins or even Mendel... I still have much to do at Gw2wikia and I'm not sure I have the time right now to get to it... Hope you had a great Christmas! Ariyen 23:48, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
Alright. Also, you may want to edit the "♥ Please leave a message at the bottom. ♥" message. That links to editing your gw2wiki page. :P -- Konig/talk 03:17, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
Ack, oops! Thank you! ^.^ I didn't pay attention... Yea, I copied pasted... my stuff... Tried to edit my main page, but kept getting an error. Maybe I can edit this page with less issues. Ariyen 07:11, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Trying to steal my workload, eh?

And there I was wondering where the EC's are coming from. ;-P Rose Of Kali Rose Of Kali SIG.png 00:13, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Hehehe, just thought I'd help a little. :-) Btw, do we have a "perfect" page? ... Never mind I found it... Just was expecting a bit more... :-SAriyen 00:53, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

So I wanted to check out your page

And got: This video contains content from Sony Music Entertainment, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds. BAHHUMBUG! >_< Since when does Sony copyright Guild Wars videos? o_O (At least, that's what it looks like from the thumbnail). Rose Of Kali Rose Of Kali SIG.png 16:36, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

It's a music video on 'The internet is for porn', which is licensed. --Vipermagi 19:32, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
Nothing I can do on my youtube page about Sony doing that... Sorry. :-( Ariyen 07:23, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
iirc there are like, 10 uploads of that video on youtube so you should be able to just grab another. — Scythe 15:24, 2 Jan 2011 (UTC)
Oh, thaaaat's what that is! I've seen it. :P I just wanted to rant because I had run into that block one too many times in just a few days. ^_^; Rose Of Kali Rose Of Kali SIG.png 22:14, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
Hehe. I get a lot of comments on my "stupid" video that's been uploaded a few times before. Ariyen 23:33, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
