::::Thanks mendel, I didn't know that. I have however given up, since I can't seem to log in to Wikia with what I know for sure is the password and they don't have my email address to send me a reset. I set up a new account "Crasher1". If someone who can would merge Crasher, GW-Crasher, and Crasher1 and then rename my account to just crasher, that would be awesome. Thanks in advance.

Curse

What a long journey it's been. Felix Omni Signature.png 21:46, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

Indeed. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 21:47, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

Would Curse.com have any interest in buying a limited-term, paid sponsorship of GuildWars@Wikia? This might be an easy way to keep the word out and do an end-run around Wikia staff's usual interference in wiki self-determination.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 19:45, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

That's a great idea, I'll talk to Donovan about it. Felix Omni Signature.png 19:50, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
Cools — one good idea is about my quota for the year :-)  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 00:50, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Some person on wowpedia has invested some money in google ads, so maybe advertising on the "guildwiki" adword for a time might make sense. We'll have to wait for google to get to know this site (get the word out, people! advertise on forums and everyplace else GuildWars you go to), and then figure out how much we need this. --◄mendel► 05:19, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

That might be an even better idea. I wouldn't wait to see — if curse wants to invest money and time, let's offer them these ideas and let them decide (they probably know better than we do how to generate traffic).  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 05:24, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you for all the time and effort you have contributing to helping Guild Wiki arrive here safely and smoothly.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 19:46, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

You're very welcome. Felix Omni Signature.png 19:50, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
indeed, thank you. Also, what happened to the birthdays? RT wants me to get back to them. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 20:20, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
I wasn't aware that anything happened to them. They seem rather intact to me- GuildWiki:User birthdays. Felix Omni Signature.png 22:43, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

more merging

Could you please merge User:mendel into User:GW-mendel, deleting User:mendel? The former is not me, but the latter is my shoepuppet. --GW-mendel 23:55, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

If it's not you I can't grant your request. That would be unethical. Felix Omni Signature.png 00:19, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
No it wouldn't. Have a look at the contribs. --◄mendel► 00:36, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
One is one too many. Felix Omni Signature.png 00:43, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
I waved my magic wand. [1] --◄mendel► 00:55, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
That was some blatant disregard for policy you showed just then, mendel. You don't remove other people's comments from talk pages. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 01:02, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Says the guy who deletes talkpages. (In other words, yes, we do.) --◄mendel► 01:20, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
I'm going to make an exception for mendel since he wants to use User:Mendel as his main account and it hasn't been used since before Wikia, but as a rule we should not usermerge without the consent of both accounts' owners. Felix Omni Signature.png 01:19, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
How about not having a rule and using common sense instead? --◄mendel► 01:20, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Ehh. I guess. Felix Omni Signature.png 01:22, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Testing

File:User The Scythe Has Fallen MonkSkills.gifFile:User The Scythe Has Fallen MonkSkills Second.gifFile:User The Scythe Has Fallen MonkSkills HalfSecond.gif stalk RC more!(hint: timestamps) — Scythe 14:37, 4 Dec 2010 (UTC)

The halfsecond and second versions are neat! (The yellow elite frmaes are a bit distracting, though.) --◄mendel► 11:41, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
Take the one-second version and try to name every skill as its icon appears. It's harder than you might think. Felix Omni Signature.png 12:16, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
I have all the skill icons saved without any extra borders applied. It may take a little while to compile them, since I have them named by skill ID instead of by skill name, but I could do that if you want to make a "clean" version. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 14:23, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
I think I could grab them off GWW in that form; however, the server being weird atm would be an issue, as would my perma b&, spose I could just log out, tho and use my ip's page. Alternatively, doesn't GWTB or paw-ned2 sort by skill #? I also know all the skills by icon, so I could just do it by sight. Dunno, pick 1... — Scythe 15:12, 5 Dec 2010 (UTC)

User Merge

Merge this with this please, shorter username clogs RC less, userspace pages don't have stupidly long names etc etc. — Scythe 0:13, 14 Dec 2010 (UTC)

Done diddle dee. Felix Omni Signature.png 02:33, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Stepping down

I feel that the standards of the wiki community have changed from two years ago when I became bureaucrat and administrator to the point where I feel I can't administrate them any longer. Hence, I owe it to the community to step down from the position of trust that required me to do so. I thank everyone who supported me in the past. --◄mendel► 23:30, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

I'll do it in a week. Felix Omni Signature.png 15:38, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
I'll leave "it" up to your imagination. Felix Omni Signature.png 15:40, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
Could you promote the "real" Rose now? --◄mendel► 15:42, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
Is that a nomination? Oh, I see it now. Felix Omni Signature.png 15:49, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
Dude, you spoiled my perfect block free record! Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 16:20, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
I could delete your account if you want it back. Felix Omni Signature.png 16:23, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
Omg, I woulndt lose my edits, would I. But no, thanks. I had it coming. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 16:25, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

omagad

you have your own web browser. Too bad it's only for OSX and isn't ff >:-( — Scythe 17:50, 29 Dec 2010 (UTC)

There's Omni Hotels... Can I stay at one? ;) For free? X-) I'd be good. Ariyen 19:41, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
That's like saying that Paris Hilton gets to stay free at Hilton hotels just because she shares a last name with the founder of... oh, wait.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 21:51, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
:P — Scythe 22:31, 29 Dec 2010 (UTC)
LOL... Actually, it's her Uncle (I think) that owns the Hotels... I'd have to ask my cousin that works at one of the hotels and has golfed with the Hiltons. Anyway, she's not a "direct" in line descendant... Ariyen 22:59, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
I don't think you realize how incredibly trivial that is. — Scythe 23:22, 29 Dec 2010 (UTC)
Very trivial, but twas interesting to me... at the time... :-S Ariyen 23:48, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
So, does this mean that Felix isn't a direct descendant of Paris Omni?  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 16:54, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
No, but his uncle founded read a science fiction magazine once. --◄mendel► 21:53, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
My cousin was on Jeopardy once. Felix Omni Signature.png 23:09, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Hey, you!

Update your information at User:Gigathrash/D&D IRC RP. Why? Because I'm going to host the (hopefully) final session sooner rather then later. I am hoping to schedule it before the 20th, so update your information soon, so I can get the word out soon, so we can have it soon.--Łô√ë Gigathrash sig G.jpgîğá†ħŕášħ 13:19, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Spam accounts

Could we delete the accounts instead of blocking them indefinitely? Would that be better? --◄mendel► 18:56, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

I don't think it would be better per se, just a lateral change. The idea is that we don't want those spam accounts to be reused, but they rarely are anyway. It would make those account names available for legitimate users, but the likelihood of someone wanting "Wonlas" is pretty low. Felix Omni Signature.png 21:28, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

merge?

I never used the wiki while it was on wikia (and can't log in there). What is the appropriate method for creating/migrating my old account "crasher"? Thanks! ~crasher

Special:UserMigration will serve you. It's simple enough, but can get weird.
  1. Enter the username "Crasher" and whatever password you want
  2. When it splits out a code go over to wiki, and make an edit to your userpage, using the code as the edit summary. Make sure to change at least 1byte/character/thing on the page, othewise the wiki will consider it a null-edit and ignore it.
  3.  ???
  4. Profit.
Scythe 13:42, 26 Jan 2011 (UTC)
Unfortunately I can't log in to wikia page to make that work. ~crasher
Then you'll have to contact Wikia support to get a password reset or something. We can't help with that, unfortunately. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:11, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
You're not the only one having login problems. Try this link, maybe it works that way.
However, you may not be aware that your account was renamed to User:GW-Crasher when GuildWiki moved to Wikia, see here. Try reclaiming your account as GW-Crasher, then ask User:Felix Omni to rename it. --◄mendel► 19:26, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks mendel, I didn't know that. I have however given up, since I can't seem to log in to Wikia with what I know for sure is the password and they don't have my email address to send me a reset. I set up a new account "Crasher1". If someone who can would merge Crasher, GW-Crasher, and Crasher1 and then rename my account to just crasher, that would be awesome. Thanks in advance. crasher 18:36, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
