There hasn't been a non-vote entry in this talk page in nearly a week, what gives? --Gimmethegepgun 11:44, 4 March 2007 (CST)

I say she should just post something on global warming, war or another controversial theme so we can fill up her talk page. :) NightAngel 00:51, 5 March 2007 (CST)

I say, we should go to war against global warming! We've been living under the environment's thumb for too long. The only question is, what do we bomb first? :-) - Candle.jpg Krowman (talkcontribs) 00:56, 5 March 2007 (CST)
Clearly, we should go to war against the environment. It's asking for it. --Beautiful Gae 11:30, 5 March 2007 (CST)

I've got an idea! Let's form a committee of people that don't have a clue what they're doing, and then 5 months later decide to nuke the environment. That'll put it in its place!!!! --Gimmethegepgun 15:13, 5 March 2007 (CST)

Global Warming is a myth, everyone knows that :D And remember what Theodore Roosevelt says: "War is the highest endeavor of man."

[Build:N/any Toxic Death][edit source]

Hey, do you mind taking another look at the new discussion post under my build N/any Toxic Death, I think u misunderstood the point of my build a little. Sorry to have bothered you. (yeah you must hate me). The preceding unsigned comment was added by Madcrazy2ks (contribs) 14:22, 11 March 2007 (EST).

What? Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 15:31, 11 March 2007 (CDT)
Aside from my minor skill mix-up I am not quite sure what the issue is. You seem to be saying that the build is intended for pressure and not spike, while my recommended bar is certainly spike-oriented. Well that is understandable. I will take another look and perhaps change my vote...though I will still say that only one line should be used, Death or Curses. Not both. Since your elite is in Death Magic it seems only logical that Death should be the specialized line. Soul Reaping is always a plus, lets you spam spells without fear of energy loss, as long as things die...with the addition of SoLS and SoS it also provides some handy Signets. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 21:45, 12 March 2007 (CDT)

your I look something like this. No, really! :) pic[edit source]

I saw your picture when I was googling, it was named as Terran Ghost. wtf? starcraft girl? o.O ----InfestedHydralisk Shadow Prison.jpg 14:13, 14 March 2007 (CDT)

Well, I DO like StarCraft, but that is not the right name. That's a picture of KOS-MOS, from XenoSaga. Perhaps someone was confused. I don't think you can find a picture of female Ghost units anywhere...except for Kerrigan... Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 20:19, 17 March 2007 (CDT)

I have a char on GW called Infested Kerrigan xD. Aaaaand, a girl who likes SSBM and SC must be awesome :o ----InfestedHydralisk Shadow Prison.jpg 21:09, 17 March 2007 (CDT)

Oh, but there is more than that! Let's see...I also like Final Fantasy, Golden Sun, Metroid, Lord of the Rings, Zelda, Fire Emblem, Shining Force, Breath of Fire, Wario, Mario RPG, Chrono Trigger, Pokemon (I was bored, okay?), Yu-Gi-Oh!, RollerCoaster Tycoon, Harry Potter, Sword of Mana, Tales of Symphonia...
There are probably more but I forget! Anyway you get the picture. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 11:31, 18 March 2007 (CDT)

I like nearly all except harry snotter. Metroid is awesome game (samus is my fav character =P), zelda is cool too. Haven't ever heard of Shining Force, Breath of Fire and Chrono Trigger. And when i'm bored I play Pokemon too >_>; ----InfestedHydralisk Shadow Prison.jpg 11:41, 18 March 2007 (CDT)

Well then you are missing out! Chrono Trigger is one of the best games of all time, and Breath of Fire is a famous series as well. Shining Force is "old-school" by today's standards but still worthwhile. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 11:43, 18 March 2007 (CDT)
I have Sega Smash Pack II somewhere, that has Shining Force on it. Pretty sure its the original one. Think I beated it once. —BlastThatT.jpgBlastedt 15:43, 18 March 2007 (CDT)
Shining Force is like FFT on roids when it comes to difficulty, it's practically impossible to beat :/ --Gimmethegepgun 14:37, 19 March 2007 (CDT)

An other awesome that you should try is...Red Steel :D It's just so awesome, try it ----InfestedHydralisk Shadow Prison.jpg 11:29, 19 March 2007 (CDT)

Why's that? ----InfestedHydralisk Shadow Prison.jpg 17:52, 19 March 2007 (CDT)

Because the game...blows? All decent review sites are flunking it. –Ichigo724Ichigo-signature.jpg 19:37, 22 March 2007 (CDT)

OMG <3 Chrono Trigger, i lost the CD but im pretty sure i waas working on my 2nd ending ^^--Shadow of Shinra 01:58, 28 March 2007 (CDT)

French[edit source]

C'est agréable de voir que des étudiants américains étudient le français. Pour la petite boite cependant, en bon français cela donne : "Je vis dans une boîte". It's nice to see that some American students take French classes. However, about the box, in proper French the text should be "Je vis dans une boîte."Utaku Mu Dan

She's not the one that wrote the box, that's the {{babel}} box, go mention it there instead --Gimmethegepgun 14:39, 15 March 2007 (CDT)
Not sure what you mean Gimmethegepgun, they are talking about a box farther down the page that I made myself. It is supposed to say "I live in a box." I don't know what verb vis is, but if that is more correct than habite, I'll change it. Thanks for the imput. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 20:19, 17 March 2007 (CDT)

Apparently the majority of American students take Spanish as opposed to French, thinking that Spanish is easier. I take French... but then, I'm Canadian ^.^ -- Nova NovaSmall.PNG -- (contribs) 17:43, 27 March 2007 (CDT)

My thoughts exactly. I think Spanish is very difficult, I failed miserably :( And maybe it does seem kind of odd, Chinese American taking French when I don't even know my native language. Meh. I am glad I picked French though, and I would say it is lots easier. It would be nice if more American students made the same choice. We are a minority in most places...
Darnit, why can't America be more like Canada? Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 21:55, 27 March 2007 (CDT)
I'm French, and I took Spanish classes. I think grammar is equally difficult, and rather similar, but spelling french words properly is much more difficult then spelling spanish words as they spell exactly as they sound. Utaku Mu Dan
Hm depends on what you compare to. French -> English, most words sound pretty close and are spelled similar. Spanish -> English, most words just get an added "o" or "e" or "a" etc. and so they are probably the closest. French -> Spanish can be almost identical spelling (thou radically different sometimes), pronunciation is quite different. Comparing inside one language, French words are more difficult to spell just by hearing because of accents and silent letters and such. Spanish are pretty easy, they are spelled very phonetically. English words are horrible to spell based on how they sound :(. Grammar for English is a headache so we just ignore it, grammar for Spanish is generally manageable, French is pretty easy grammar but has some very annoying exceptions, such as passe compose with etre or avoir, or whether it's "a" or "en" to travel a certain way. At its most basic though the French grammar is pretty regular, and its structure is (thankfully) not so elastic, which makes it easier to learn for non-native speakers.
Of course, in the end everyone knows Latin pwns them all. ;) Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 18:31, 28 March 2007 (CDT)
Mhmm, of course, even though we all know Latin is not an official language in any country. ^.^ :P -- Nova Neo-NovaSmall.jpg -- (contribs) 20:08, 28 March 2007 (CDT)

May I ask you something?[edit source]

Um, Miss Entropy, I wanted to ask you about your vote on the Battle Rage Warrior you disfavoured earlier (I said some stuff in the voting area, but maybe that was a bad idea?). One, is a build okay if it works, just not as good as, say, a Dragon Slash with FGJ? I know it doesn't look great on paper, but it's basically a permanent speed boost, and Standing (same damage boost as Dragon) charges in a couple whacks. :) And two, may I vote on that build, or have I edited it enough that I'm biased on it and can't? Well anyway, you seem like someone who knows a good bit about these kinds of things so I thought I'd ask, sorry to bother you. >< Dark Helmet 22:32, 19 March 2007 (CDT)

I don't like to compare Elites, Dragon Slash and Battle Rage produce radically different builds. Keeping that in mind, I still say Unfavored because you can make a better build with Battle Rage...check the Favored section. What constitutes a good build? Well, that is a subjective question. If there are builds which do the same thing and do it better, that is usually good enough to Unfavor something. If there are similar builds (same elite, weapon, some skills), then it becomes a more difficult question. Like you say, it is an "okay" build, and it does work. But, in my personal opinion (the crux of votes here), it isn't good enough for a Favored, since there's room for improvement. Aside from problems that I mentioned in the vote itself, there are some issues with Battle Rage. One, is that while it does serve like Sprint and "For Great Justice!" combined (but weaker), it does not give an IAS. However because it's a stance that means you can not get an IAS anyways! Which is a problem. Also, let's say you have to change targets, or the opponent gets some Blocks in. If you don't charge up Battle Rage soon, you lose all Adrenaline. Not to mention that every time Battle Rage is activated you also lose it all again...So, the solution is to incorporate more energy-based attacks. I know Standing and Silverwing etc. charge fast. But still, with all the adrenaline (FGJ is an Optional), a skill like Final Thrust would work well. Not so with Dragon Slash because it takes a full 10 to charge, but under FGJ Battle Rage charges again in 1-2 hits, thus enabling constant use of Final Thrust...and that is more effective. But in any case it's all subjective...Finally I'd argue that the build lacks defense. At least taking Shield Bash would be nice.
As to whether you have done too much contributing to vote...well, not being an admin and not having checked all the contribution history I can't answer at the moment. But I would say, you should go ahead and vote anyway. You're not the author so unless someone pulls that clause on you it is fine. :) Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 22:42, 19 March 2007 (CDT)
Okay, thanks. ^_^ Not sure how to vote... on the one hand it's an effective build, and fun to play, but I understand it's not the *best*, and most anything works to some degree in PvE. :( The problem with Battle Rage is it doesn't go well with Final Thrust (which you mentioned in the talk page thingy), or any sort of healing... so you kind of have to load up on attacks, and then you've got lots of attacks and no IAS, utility, etc. And I know you're not an admin (yet? :o), but you seemed like you knew a lot, and yeah. I've seen you around a lot, even though I don't edit much. ^_^ Dark Helmet 04:19, 20 March 2007 (CDT)
Well, I'm glad we agree, sort of...this is the kind of discussion I'd like to see often with regard to Builds. Sadly that doesn't happen much. :( And no, I'm never being an admin and won't accept nomination either. Sorry. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 00:25, 21 March 2007 (CDT)
Well, okay. :) Too much bad stuff that comes with being one? And erm, sorry for bothering you *again*, but what do you think of Sun and Moon Slash, or Protector's Strike instead of Silverwing? Thanks, Dark Helmet 19:23, 22 March 2007 (CDT)
No no, I just don't want the responsibility. :) And also - it's a talk page lol, you're supposed to "bother" people. Hmm. Silverwing = Galrath = 8 adrenaline for +30 damage or so. It's your very basic and boring Sword attack, but effective once you have high adrenaline gain. Just like Executioner's Strike. Sun and Moon = also 8 adrenaline. It deals damage twice and cannot be blocked. Cannot be blocked is good but pointless if foes won't block, of course. It also deals no +damage, which is meh. Sun and Moon is best used to quickly gain adrenaline and boost DPS. However if there is no IAS and no other attack buffs (weapon spells, Signet of Strength, etc) to boost damage output of regular attacks, there is not much point to Sun and Moon. Better off taking Silverwing in that case, since you get more net benefit.
Protector's? Well, that is a good spike skill, common on a Hammer user. Not so much for others though. Protector's is used not so much because you expect the large damage bonus but more because of the 1/2 second activation time. Since Battle Rage doesn't give IAS this is good. Battle Rage also makes you move faster. That means you can chase fleeing foes and you have a better probability of landing Protector's on a moving foe. All very good things. Bull's Strike is also good for that purpose. I don't know if Protector's would be better than Silverwing, since really I would use both...tch. Silverwing = good and consistent damage with no conditional. Protector's = conditional same damage as Silverwing, higher DPS from 1/2 second, uses energy and not adrenaline; recharge means you could use Silverwing more often with a Battle Rage build. Meh. Like I say, I would prefer both at the same time. But in the context of the build. Stick with Silverwing Slash, it fits the build best (as a standalone skill) and gives the highest nonconditional damage. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 19:31, 22 March 2007 (CDT)

discussion[edit source]

from [Build:E/N Hurricane]..."not as strong as the Build:N/W Jaguar Sword, melee-mancer anti - Jagre 01:49, 21 March 2007 (CDT)

You are kidding? There is no comparison between a frontliner and a backliner. Completely different classes as well. I know that you luv your build but this is a bit silly. Image:Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 02:05, 21 March 2007 (CDT)"
although the [Build:N/W Jaguar Sword, melee-mancer anti] does not quite fit into either one of those categories, it is definately not a front-line character - as no caster-primary build should be thought of as. Just because they weild a sword doesn't mean they're frontline. The same is true for sins, and IW mesmers, which would be in between mid and frontline. The Jaguar Sword meleemancer is a midline character, which is farther back than even sins and IW mesmers. Plus it definately way stronger than the Hurricane build IMO. Jagre 02:38, 21 March 2007 (CDT)
How can you possibly compare a Sword/Blood build to an Orb Spam/KD build? They are absolutely nothing alike. I mean that is just poor voting. Defiant Elements (talk ~ contribs) 02:41, 21 March 2007 (CDT)
if an unfavored build is stronger than an untested build, then the untested on belongs lower than the superior unfavored one. simple as that. THAT IS NOT WHY I VOTED UNFAVORED ANYWAYS. see Discussion [Build talk:E/Me Hurricane] Jagre 02:47, 21 March 2007 (CDT)
furthermore see [Build talk:N/Me E-Denial Pressure]; if my build gets unfavored then LOGIC requires me to hold all other builds to the same standard. I'm sorry. Jagre 02:56, 21 March 2007 (CDT)
Erm.... why do you have a link to a tested build I made....... Defiant Elements (talk ~ contribs) 02:58, 21 March 2007 (CDT)

That's a very flawed theroy. Solus Shield of Judgment.jpg 02:50, 21 March 2007 (CDT)

do you think that if a build gets un-favored, and then another build gets made up that is WORSE than the unfavored one, that it belongs in the favored category? Jagre 03:02, 21 March 2007 (CDT)
That's not what anyone said. Please do not misrepresent our views. What we are saying is that you can't say one build is WORSE than another if the two builds share nothing in common. Defiant Elements (talk ~ contribs) 03:04, 21 March 2007 (CDT)
"Since my build was voted unfavored, should I now hold all other builds to that same standard? That they must be better than mine to get a vote of favored from me? Jagre 06:00, 20 March 2007 (CDT)
Well, your build was horrible, so therefore, you should hold builds to a much much higher standard than yours. --Theonemephisto 16:22, 20 March 2007 (CDT)
that would force me to vote even more than half of the builds in "tested" as unfavored. Jagre 21:37, 20 March 2007 (CDT)" Jagre 02:51, 21 March 2007 (CDT)
So wait.... if I have a crappy Elementalist build that can outdamage an incredible Monk build, I should vote unfavored on the Monk build? Comparing a mid-line N/W to a backline E/Me is doing just that. The builds have nothing in common, and yest you insist on comparing them... Defiant Elements (talk ~ contribs) 02:53, 21 March 2007 (CDT)
1) I did not compare the two builds whatsoever
2) No, you should not vote unfavored
3) in regards to: "if I have a crappy Elementalist build that can outdamage an incredible Monk build, I should vote unfavored on the Monk build? Comparing a mid-line N/W to a backline E/Me is doing just that. The builds have nothing in common, and yest you insist on comparing them... "
please do not misrepresent MY views, especially if you are going to ask me to do the same for you. Jagre
Asking the same questions over and over again isn't gonna change anyones mind you know. Aside from that, you did try to compare the two builds. The comment may have been stricken, but you did write that your build was better than the E/Me build. "not as strong as the Build:N/W Jaguar Sword, melee-mancer anti." I am not misrepresenting your views, you did try to compare the two builds. You cannot possibly deny that you wrote that comment. You also cannot deny that that comment directly compares the two builds. Done and Done. Defiant Elements (talk ~ contribs) 03:08, 21 March 2007 (CDT)

Sorry Jagre, you make no sense what so ever. Solus Shield of Judgment.jpg 02:54, 21 March 2007 (CDT)

I have to agree with Solus here. Comparing unalike builds for different proffessions, with different skills, different purposes, different everything, and trying to say which is better really isn't possible. Defiant Elements (talk ~ contribs) 02:55, 21 March 2007 (CDT)

if one build gets unfavored then logic requires you to hold other builds to the same standard. I'm sorry. Jagre 02:59, 21 March 2007 (CDT)

No, that isn't logical at all. If I help all Monk builds to the damage standard of an Elementalist, there wouldn't be any vetted monk builds. Defiant Elements (talk ~ contribs) 03:00, 21 March 2007 (CDT)
Yeh. It's stupid to say things like that, because then, only warrior and a few Dervish builds would ever be vetted (as they have, unquestionably, the best DPS in the game). Your N/W doesn't do as much as a Dragon Slasher (or Shock Axer) and doesn't pressure like a Backbreaker war. However, that doesn't matter; builds are judged based on how well they do their job in comparison to other builds trying to do the same job. -Auron My Talk 03:05, 21 March 2007 (CDT)

RE: The widespread lack of user experience on GWiki and the Build section.[edit source]

Entropy:

Despite the general lack of experience in this community, not a single person's legitimate contributions to Guild Wiki are deserving of spiteful, bare, or disrespectful comments.

Before posting a comment, ask yourself, "Would I find this helpful on my own Build discussion?" and, "Is this helping the Wiki and other users?" If you don't answer yes to both of these questions, rant about it on your User Page or don't post it at all.

Having said that, please re-read what you posted on my page:

"The vetting system may be idiotic, but so are a vast majority of the builds - and their posters. You don't have to test a crap build to know it's crap"

These statements imply that the author of the build in question, Nova, is stupid for having posted a build at all; additionally, they suggest that the very idea of testing most builds is beneath you. Now, do these implications lead the Wiki in a direction of better articles and a community of respect?

In my opinion, no, but perhaps you may disagree.

Regardless, try being more constructive, Entropy. Perhaps then you will avoid the risk of hurting the goals that we all share for this Wiki. GrammarNazi 23:45, 25 March 2007 (CDT)

It's a bad build. It's a stupid build. Arguing that I need to test it before commenting is stupid. Would I test a Mending Wammo? Or a Starburst Warrior? Didn't think do. Nova is stupid for posting a stupid build. Testing a dumb build is beneath me, yes. I would find my comments helpful on my own Build discussion, and I feel that it was helping the Wiki and other users: (A) It tells me that I have made a serious error in judgment as to my capabilities to make good Warrior builds. (B) I'm helping to rid the Wiki of bad builds and in doing do, discouraging bad build tendencies in inexperienced users who may be fooled into thinking "backbreaker + JI = spike lolol". Call me spiteful, bare, or disrespecting; I call it being blunt about the honest truth. It is nice to pull the FlowerPower Wiki facade on me, but meh is all I can say.
As to being constructive, lol? Check my contribs. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 09:47, 26 March 2007 (CDT)
GW:NPA. "Nova is stupid for posting a stupid build" <--- Comment on content, not on the contributor. Here's the part that you're missing: No one is begging you to post on those build pages. If you find a build "beneath you", feel free to move away to another; drive-by insults help no one and are welcomed by no one.
Unfortunately for you that "FlowerPower Wiki facade" has a very strong footing on this wiki's policy, with GW:NPA, GW:AGF and GW:YAV, so if there's something you can't do about it is to dismiss it so nonchalantly. Please be more careful with how you interact with other wiki editors. --Dirigible 09:57, 26 March 2007 (CDT)
So who is begging the inexperienced editors to post their mending whammos and starburst warriors? If we're going to use faulty logic, at least use it on all sides. -Auron My Talk 10:10, 26 March 2007 (CDT)
Oh, the logic stands just fine. No one is begging them to post their whammos, but there's a policy that openly allows them to do so. Feel free to point out to me where is the policy that allows Entropy to call another contributor stupid because he posted a "stupid build" ? --Dirigible 10:25, 26 March 2007 (CDT)
You make a blanket statement, I counter with a blanket statement, you rebutt with a specific statement that had nothing to do with what I was saying. That's flawed logic. -Auron My Talk 11:29, 26 March 2007 (CDT)
I made a blanket statement: No one is begging anyone to do anything on the wiki; and I think that is true, if anything happens around here is because people have fun doing it, and not because they're expected to or anything of the kind. After making that statement I proceeded to expound on that idea: if you don't want to waste your time with whammo builds that are "beneath you" (as Entropy wrote), then don't. Or to put it in another perspective, if you don't want to waste your time making galleries of armor pictures, don't; do something else you want to do. Doing something you don't want to do, (such as voting and commenting on that whammo build) and using that as an excuse to be rude and offensive towards others is not fine, because the excuse is not valid (if you don't want to be there, then why are you there?) and the personal insults are against policy.
You then made a blanket statement: No one is begging inexperienced editors to post their whammo builds here either, which just happens to be the exact same statement I made, simply applied to inexperienced players and their builds.
I replied specifying why the blanket statement I first made is still valid, even in the particular example that you brought up. Yes, no one is begging the inexperienced players to submit their builds either, whether they are bad or good. And then I went further in order to clarify that statement, by adding that even though they are not begged/expected to post those builds, they are allowed to and (as long as they're not breaking any policies while doing so) encouraged to.
Now where is the faulty logic with that? I'm applying that blanket statement to all those involved, Entropy, Nova, you, myself and everyone else. Not a single one of us is being begged to do anything; we're allowed to contribute on this wiki and encouraged to do so, as long as we can respect and conform to the different policies that govern this site. Hopefully that clarifies this. --Dirigible 12:33, 26 March 2007 (CDT)

Entropy, even the author of something trite, overused, and useless such as a Wammo build is deserving of respect in the eyes of the Guild Wiki policy. (An exception is something like W/Mo PWNZORLAWL and the like ;) Anyway.)

Not you, I, or anyone in this community is permitted to insult the intelligence of an author, regardless of how much you personally disagree with what they've presented to the community, as long as their intent was in the right place.

That being said, I do not disagree for a moment that a Build should be pointed out as stupid when it is stupid. If somebody posted a build that tried to do too many things at once, for example, I'd Unfavor it and post "This Build is spread too thin. It needs to specialize in order to be more effective. Try removing Skill X, Y, and Z and replace them with A, B, and Res Sig." A statement like this teaches the author what to do next time so they don't make the same mistakes (or the same ineffective build pages). The notion of improvement is what many members of this community neglect in most, if not all, of their votes.


If I were to do what many in this community do, I would say "This Build is stupid, why did you even bother posting this?" These statements merely antagonize the author and do nothing more. They don't improve the article, they don't refine the Build, they don't teach the author anything - the only thing they do is make the author feel stupid and the commenter, immature.

Here's an example of the most direct way that you can follow the policies outlined in Guild Wiki, with specific information for Nova's build. "The goal that you've laid out for your build - to do damage to a knocked-down foe - is much more effective with Devastating Hammer, Fierce Blow, and Heavy Blow. Judge's Insight is unnecessary."

Alternatively, you could do what I did. I helped Nova realize the flaws in the Build, as well as the Strengths.

If not for the Wiki, aim to be constructive for yourself. Insulting people over the Internet, especially at a fansite, just makes you look infantile. GrammarNazi 14:07, 26 March 2007 (CDT)


To address something you said above: "As to being constructive, lol? Check my contribs." Being constructive elsewhere on the Wiki does not mean that you are permitted to be destructive elsewhere. I don't know where you got that impression, but it would be wise to check your sources. GrammarNazi 14:10, 26 March 2007 (CDT)
Welcome to BuildWiki, and hooray for Builds Wipe. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 17:58, 26 March 2007 (CDT)

Yeah, Builds section behavior has even been showing up in my RL too, which is a bad sign. I snap at people a lot lately and am just generally a bitch :) Wipe plz! Power is addicting, if you can call free speech + NPA power. It kind of is, in a sense, since really we're all anonymous and we can say anything we want...worst that comes is a ban really. :/ Just another example of the downfalls of Wiki. The old "If you wouldn't say it to their face, don't say it on Internet" rule pretty much goes out the window with Builds section. Sigh. And yes I am hypocrite, but it's the principle that counts hei? :( I don't know if I want to totally apologize and all that (coz maybe that would be a lie to how I actually feel?) but I am sorry for browbeating people in Builds section so much >.> I'll try to improve my behavior (again) in the future...

Oh, did I miss something? And apart from some personal posts, I'll never post again because apparently I'm far too stupid to post here.

I really do. -- Nova NovaSmall.PNG -- (contribs) 21:46, 26 March 2007 (CDT)

Gee, you don't let up do you? Get over it man, you are taking things way too seriously. It's Wiki for crying out loud. It's not like I went and slapped you upside the head or anything.

Dude, we did THK together. Do you honestly think I can hate anyone after that? >.> I'm sorry if it comes off that way but I think you are misinterpreting things. I do NOT think you are a noob - since I have seen you in action, and you have done more than just that one build (unlike some people...). I do NOT think you are stupid in general - I just think you had a serious lapse of judgment in posting that build. Is there anything else I can clear up for you? Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 21:55, 26 March 2007 (CDT)
Dont mean to barge in for nothing, i just think you might have wrote so much on your user page that you've forgotten what you wrote :) I mean look at the beginning of this header: you've said like 3-4 times "Nova is stupid" and now you're saying he isn't.I dont deny the fact that he/she's acting a bit childish yet you should be careful of your own affirmations, as you might find self-contradiction damaging to pple's opinion towards you.

P.S.Thx for correcting the price thing, didn't know. -- NeoExcidious

I don't think so, all I wrote was "Nova is stupid for posting a stupid build." Note the "for". This connects the adjective to a specific action. I did not summarily declare that Nova is stupid in all circumstances. I said, explicitly, that cause follows effect and effect follows cause. Stupid build = poster was stupid to post it. It is like telling someone they are an idiot because they didn't study for a test. Does that mean they really are an idiot, always? No. Does it mean they were acting idiotically by choosing not to study? Yes. It is a lapse of judgment, and a temporary one. Everyone has their flaws and people do stupid things sometimes - like posting Wammo builds or Starburst warriors (not referencing to Nova with those, of course). If you post a stupid build, then that is an act of stupidity, is it not? I see no self-contradiction on my part. As to saying it "3-4" times, I only count one. As to people's opinion towards me, well, I'm not on here to win a popularity contest am I? Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 22:59, 26 March 2007 (CDT)
I'm just saying using insults isnt a really good way to communicate.You could say that wasn't a good build and thats that.Not because "its wrong" , yet cause pple tend to see other things in your words because they arent you so they judge things differently.Thus, if you tell him you're stupid cause you're doing that,he might misunderstand your intenitons.(especialy with some1 that you see how "well" he/she responds to your remarks, practicaly saying "I'm taking my toys and going..." <- if you know what i mean)
Never said you're trying to win a contest yet you seem to get involved with much passion in this and from the OUTSIDE it seem you care about other pple's opinions on you.If i am totally wrong, i appologize.NeoExcidious 23:13, 26 March 2007 (CDT)
Well okay, I'll leave it at that. Yes, I do get involved with much passion. User:GrammarNazi sums it up by saying "Diligent contributor and a welcome vet, but needs to work on keeping a cooler head :)". It's always been a problem for me I suppose, and the Internet does not much to help out either. At least this isn't RL or else there would be screaming matches. But yea I admit I need to take a step back and get some fresh air sometimes >.> Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 23:43, 26 March 2007 (CDT)
Haha, darnit! I had hoped my joke would've quelled this topic and gotten everyone to lighten up.

We all make mistakes. Relax folks. Nova, its alright, she admitted there was good reason to say she'd been out of line; anything else added to the discussion is semantics. Entropy, I too am glad this isn't say, a real-life firearms fan meeting. Haha :) Let's get back to Wiki'ing or perhaps to squeezing stress balls :p GrammarNazi 11:15, 27 March 2007 (CDT)
