Hello and welcome to the wiki! It is recommended to make liberal use of the "Preview" button and to mark (most) edits to Userpages as 'minor' to reduce the clutter on our 'Recent Changes' log and to keep what shows up there relevant to game material. Thanks and enjoy your stay! — User:Kyrasantae kyrasantae 22:19, 9 October 2006 (CDT)

Heya there, welcome mate. Could you resize your maple leaf sig image to 20px high? Otherwise it stuffs up the line spacing (as you can probably see now), 20px or less seems to be pretty much standard for sig pics. Cheers. --Xasxas256 19:44, 10 October 2006 (CDT)
There we go, hope that's better! --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 20:26, 10 October 2006 (CDT)
Looks much better ;) --Xasxas256 22:44, 10 October 2006 (CDT)
I was just going to come here and ask you to resize the image, but you had already done it. Thea easier way would have been to upload a smaller version with the same name as the original image. That would have also updated the older sigs. --Gem-icon-sm.png (talk) 03:13, 11 October 2006 (CDT)

Omigosh, you're a Schulicher! *stabs* I actually hail from Calgary too, just happening to be studying in Edmonton (nice to get away from home). People hate me for cheering on the Flames :-( ... and no, no, I don't participate in Cup Runs (see item "inebriety" in the 'Dislikes' part of my userpage) — User:Kyrasantae kyrasantae 03:19, 11 October 2006 (CDT)

Yes, yes I am a Schulicher. Whee? :) The extra money for student activities is nice! But we don't have a nice new shiny building like you guys do. --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 11:24, 11 October 2006 (CDT)
Don't you mean...THREE new buildings? Engineering takes up literally almost a sixth of campus. :-P NINT was finished this year but access is limited to special clearance because of the sensitive equipment inside. — User:Kyrasantae kyrasantae 13:22, 11 October 2006 (CDT)
Sounds kind of like the CCIT building we have. It's supposed to be this revolutionary new thing that will put the SSE on the map, so to speak, but the only people who ever get to use it are Grad students and profs with research chairs. Tuition dollars hard at work, just not for those who pay them... No sour grapes or anything! --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 20:06, 11 October 2006 (CDT)

Thank you for helping with the hawkeye hammer img!!!Cyricx 23:21, 6 December 2006 (CST)

Vandalism?[edit source]

[1] eh? it has mending touch! — Skuld 04:22, 3 December 2006 (CST)

True, but the article title is W/A Lonely Ninja. Something has gone awry, and from an anonymous user, I made a judgment call. --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 12:55, 3 December 2006 (CST)

Carin stones[edit source]

I dont see why it cant just be their, if u see a refrence to another game. might as well share it with the world Stevo101

wikipedia:Cairn, k — Skuld 23:36, 10 December 2006 (CST)

I know i just relized the refrence so i thought i would add that. Stevo101 23:38, 10 December 2006 (CST)

If there is a clear and obvious reference, then yes, I completely agree. One example of this is the More Cowbell quest. However, when there is no clear reference, we're going to run into some serious clutter if anything that is even remotely related to the topic of discussion is considered a "reference". If these cairn stones behaved in a manner that is similar to those in Diablo, then I'd have no problem with it. But since it says right in the article that there is "no known use", then saying it's a reference to, well, anything, is entirely unverifiable. --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 23:39, 10 December 2006 (CST)

kk sry about the trouble Stevo101 23:41, 10 December 2006 (CST)

It's not any trouble :) Part of what a wiki is, is developing the resource as a group effort, and I'm glad that you're helping! --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 23:43, 10 December 2006 (CST)

English[edit source]

Do you have something against proper British English? Why are you changing every instance of the word whilst? Not cool. Capcom 00:53, 11 December 2006 (CST)

I'm changing them because I've found that they were being used improperly. If you read the articles before I changed them, seeing "whilst" instead of "while" had a tendency to disrupt the flow of the article. While I agree that "Proper British English" may still see some use, I think that this particular instance has fallen out of favoUr and been used improperly more often than not. --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 00:58, 11 December 2006 (CST)
What? It's perfectly proper to use whilst in those instances for British English. It only seems odd to you because you're not British. Your version of English is not the definitive and is most definitely not more "proper" in usage than any other. Capcom 01:09, 11 December 2006 (CST)
This point has already been argued here. Regardless of what is written anywhere else, the policy is that we use American English on articles. I don't spell check my talk page edits very often and they're always written in Commonwealth English. At home I've got two text editing programs and one is set to Australian English and the other to American English, all my GuildWiki article edits are spell checked in American English and not Australian English. When we were hammering out this policy I originally said that I would have preferred a Wikipedia style policy where the spelling could be Commonwealth or American English as long as it's consistent. But we're documenting a game that uses American English (ie armor not armour) so that's how we write our articles to avoid confusion.
GuildWiki:Misspellings was created by Skuld who's English and the note about using American English was added by Tetris L who's German, basically all of non Yanks have just had to get used to using American English on articles. I hope that clears things up. --Xasxas256 07:45, 11 December 2006 (CST)
Capcom, come off your high horse. Just because it's not written the way you want it (despite being in line with the accepted policy) is no reason to start talking down to people. Just because you are British doesn't mean we have to do it your way, nor does it give you authority to say "this is the right way". If you want to argue it, bring it up in the articles Xasxas256 mentioned earlier rather than griping at a single user. --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 16:55, 11 December 2006 (CST)

Hi, brit here, the game says armor, we do armor, after all we are here to document the game ^^ — Skuld 17:03, 11 December 2006 (CST)

That's where I'm sitting at too. In university, work, talking with friends, whatever, I write in one style, and here I write in another. That's the way things go. --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 17:06, 11 December 2006 (CST)
That's interesting, you refer to yourself as a Brit? I would have thought you'd be a Pom first and a Brit a distant second. Like a Scotsman will normally say he's a Scot not a Brit. It's probably not a big thing, maybe it's because the OP was refering to British English, anyway I'm surely just overthinking things :P --Xasxas256 19:37, 11 December 2006 (CST)
No, I meant that my opinion is that we are here to document the game, not argue over spelling :P What the hell is a Pom anyway? --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 19:45, 11 December 2006 (CST)
Huh? That issue has been sorted out already, American English on articles, whatever you like on talk pages. Now the more important thing is working out why Skuld is suddenly British and not English...must avoid Ashes references! I didn't realise till just now that Pom is used to refer to the British, I always thought it was a worldwide saying for English...or that outside of Australia it might be considered racist. Well I'm learning stuff today! Although this suggests it more English specific. Well aren't you glad you read this? --Xasxas256 20:01, 11 December 2006 (CST)
As soon as I figure out what you said, I'm sure I'll be very glad for having read it ;) Never heard of a Pom before, to be honest. I'll just stick to calling myself a Canuck... --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 20:10, 11 December 2006 (CST)
Ha ha that's a perfect equivalent. Canuck is only used by Canadians and Yanks, Pom is only used by Aussies and Brits. (Well ok there's a few other countries that say "Pom" but you get the idea). I've only heard of "Canuck" because I'm so incredibly sophisticated, cultured and well read but the saying is unused outside of North America. Alright fine, I admit I actually heard it during my bored-can't-get-off-the-couch-uni-days while watching a black and white daytime TV war movie, lucky I've got the GuildWiki now to take up all my spare time! Hmmm I don't know if this made any more sense than my last post, just read the first sentence and ignore the rest, they'll only confuse you! If you can understand my rambling I feel sorry for you, you must be crazier than me! --Xasxas256 22:10, 11 December 2006 (CST)
Lol, I too am familiar with that uni feeling. The random article button is a terrible feature when you have a report due the next day... --User:ImbrilShadowfire Imbril Shadowfire 22:27, 11 December 2006 (CST)

OK, I was unaware of the policy about using American English spelling for articles. I fail to see how I was on a high horse or talking down to you though, I was merely pointing out that it's perfectly acceptable to use whilst in those sentences. You seemed to allude to the fact it is incorrect grammar-wise, so I was just telling you otherwise; you could have told me you meant because of this policy. It had nothing to do with me wanting it to be British English, I don't care if it is or not, I just found it silly it was being changed when it was already there and I assumed it was for the same reason a lot of people think that version of English is "wrong". Once again, this was because I had no idea about this policy. Also, I'm not British. Capcom 22:33, 11 December 2006 (CST)

Collectors[edit source]

Note that armor collectors will show nothing available to trade if you visit them with a profession that they don't carry product for, this is usually only seen when visiting collectors from older campaigns with a character whose profession is from a later campaign. With this in mind I reverted your edits to Lenn Giantsbane on the assumption that you visited him with one of the professions that he has nothing for: Dervish, Paragon, Assassin, Ritualist, Monk or Elementalist. If that is not the case, please post on his talk page. Thanks.  :) --Rainith 21:09, 12 July 2007 (CDT)
