Curse[edit source]

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 [email protected]? 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[edit source]

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[edit source]

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)

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)

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)

Stepping down[edit source]

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)

Hey, you![edit source]

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[edit source]

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?[edit source]

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) ... Well I figured it out. Via monobook I was able to login to Wikia. I never created a GW-Crasher account. Anyway... User:Crasher, User:GW-Crasher and User:Crasher1 now need to be merged. Thanks for all your help guys. Crasher 18:51, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
A few months after Wikia acquired GuildWiki, they merged our user database into theirs. Any conflicts where the GuildWiki username already existed on Wikia with a different email address were solved by prefixing 'GW-' to the GuildWiki user. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 19:40, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Okay, this is what I'm gonna do. I'll merge User:Crasher and User:GW-Crasher into Crasher1, deleting the old accounts. Then you register Crasher, and post here. Once you've done that I'll move all the contribs back to Crasher and you'll be good to go. Felix Omni Signature.png 20:34, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Done. Thanks! Crasher 18:56, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
All your contributions should now be back on Crasher. If there are any discrepancies, let me know. Felix Omni Signature.png 00:40, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Intriguing[edit source]

No doubt Dr Ishmael reads my amended wording now to mean that I intentionally obstructed him for personal reasons, which of course isn't true either, but that can't be helped.

Myself, I was intrigued by this log entry:

22:17, 31 January 2011 Felix Omni (Talk | contribs) deleted New Page ‎ (Author request: mendel appears to be correct) 

Were you referring to my predictions about spambot reactions to our wiki countermeasures, or something else? --◄mendel► 19:11, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

On TEF's talk page, you commented that there appears to be some process whereby creating new articles takes significantly longer to save than editing existing ones. My vast empirical evidence seems to support your claim. What I found intriguing was the idea of Jink for bureaucrat, not Ish managing to be offended by you again. I'm fairly used to that by now. Felix Omni Signature.png 19:15, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
Ah, alright. (Nice way to word it, LOL.) It was your indentation that misled me, if you'd put it two more levels out, I'd have read it as a reply to me and Jink and not to Dr Ishmael and me. Thanks for clarifiying! --◄mendel► 19:20, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
For the record, I was not at all offended there, merely put off by your constant jibes at me. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 19:40, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

I don't know if this is the right place to ask, if not I apologize :> GW-Viruzzz 20:16, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

You've come to the right place, I think I can safely take your word for confirmation. One moment please. Felix Omni Signature.png 22:38, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
D'oh, Gigathrash already followed up on his request here. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:39, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
Oooh, hope I didn't break anything just now. Felix Omni Signature.png 22:40, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
Looks like he was still logged in on the GW- version when Giga did that, and he made 1 more contribution after that. So I think all you did was to merge that 1 contrib back to Viruzzz. Otherwise you probably wouldn't've seen that user at all. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:43, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Feedback[edit source]

Hello! I want to thank you for everything you have done for the Guild Wiki. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Tesla, a wiki manager for Curse. The reason I am posting on your talk page is for some feedback. I was hoping you could tell me if there was something you would like to see on the wiki or if you think there is something we could do to help improve the quality of our service to the community. If you have any ideas at all, please feel free to stop by on my talk page and leave me your thoughts. Thank you! Tesla 03:34, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

I take off my fictitious hat to you, Sir. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.png A F K When Needed 20:52, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

I agree, cept I don't wear a hat so I'd bow instead. :-) Ariyen 06:55, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

User merge[edit source]

Whenever you (or another b'crat seeing this) has a convenient moment, please merge my User:Nwash account into my new User:Eyes account. I'd like to start going by the same username on all the Curse wikis on which I'm registered. Thank you in advance. Eyes User-Eyes-Sig.png 12:41, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

Sad[edit source]

Something I noticed... When doing preferences, you have that gww. So technically, we link to gww in that respect. We have links to the dutchGerman wiki and they do to us, but gww doesn't have links to either (they don't link us or the dutchGerman wiki). It's rather low, I think. Just wanted to say along these lines - is that I am PROUD of guildwiki, giving links, but also giving better details, etc. in most everything. I have found things here to be easier to navigate, etc. and I am wishing I had come here, instead of gww. Thank you. I'd add this to other pages, but I know people will see. It's small now and not hard to miss. :-) Ariyen 19:35, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

The GWW Switch is available purely for the convenience of our users. They can choose whether to enable it or not. Felix Omni Signature.png 00:58, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

O, oops. fixed, ty Ish. 72.148.31.114 19:12, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
As someone with Dutch as primary language, I would hate to see GW in Dutch, never mind a wiki about it :D --TalkpageEl_Nazgir 19:45, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
Ontdarming would be bitchin' :P Once started translating War and Assassin skills to Dutch with *drumroll* Prog (what a surprise!). It just sounds so silly. Dutch is way too formal sounding.
Also, GWW, links, etc. Yep. :p --Vipermagi 21:13, 13 November 2011 (UTC)


Help Request: WIKISWTOR Account Ban[edit source]

Thanks for your time. I accidently got myself banned while trying to teach myself how to edit wiki's. I don't know the exact reason, however I suspect it was due to my adding an external link to my SWTOR guild page and the DarthHaterDB page on my WIKISWTOR "User:Orthallon" page. I'd like to assure you (and everyone) that my sole intention is to contribute to the wiki, not use for personal/guild fame and I was unaware that external links were prohibited (if that was the cause), and in fact had planned on changing the guild link to a wiki-internal link once I made that page - but didn't get that far. If you are willing/able, please un-ban me, and if you know of a better list of things to not do/edit, I would greatly appreciate it. Here are the details of the ban notice:

Your user name or IP address has been blocked. The block was made by Abuse filter. The reason given is Automatically blocked by abuse filter. Description of matched rule: Spam pages. Start of block: 01:50, 21 November 2011 Expiry of block: infinite Intended blockee: Orthallon You can contact Abuse filter or another administrator to discuss the block. You cannot use the 'e-mail this user' feature unless a valid e-mail address is specified in your account preferences and you have not been blocked from using it. Your current IP address is hopefully listed in the block ID details, if not I will provide more privately, and the block ID is #581. Please include all above details in any queries you make.

Thanks again. [email protected]

I've unblocked your account on WikiSWTOR, sorry for the inconvenience. Currently the abuse filter there is set to a very low threshold for auto-blocking; as you guessed, it does not like external links. The strict measures are in place because of the sheer number of spam bots that the wiki drew before it was renovated; it's my hope that we can relax somewhat once we have a sizable editing population. In the meantime, try to avoid external links when possible, and ask a sysop to intervene if necessary. Felix Omni Signature.png 01:54, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Tilili, talala, what a delightfull merry day. Well, no not really. I smell horribly, my labcoat smells even more, the stuff we are making is bad for your health, etc. BUT HELL, IT GOES BOOM PROPER!![edit source]

So, I'd say that would make a great BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Bom.jpg Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 10:39, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

I give you conga rats. I'd say, either let them dance for your amusement, or eat them. --TalkpageEl_Nazgir 11:30, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Wait, what? The birthday thingie lists Felix's sister as having a birthday today. Felix's day is in June. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:46, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Well, then, happy birthday to Felix's sister! Eyes User-Eyes-Sig.png 16:01, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Fine, if I must... :P Happy Birthday, sibling of the Omni! —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 16:08, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
I feel horrible. Felix, you dirty con man! Give my gratz to your sister. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 19:18, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Lol, I don't bother cheching, Arnout is my birthday calendar. --TalkpageEl_Nazgir 19:44, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Lmao, I forgot I put her birthday on there. Actually I probably would have forgotten it was her birthday if you hadn't posted this, so thanks Arnout! Felix Omni Signature.png 21:45, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Felix, there's this handy tool called facebook that does the same :P --TalkpageEl_Nazgir 22:18, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
F*ck you, I am much better than the book of faces. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 09:05, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
She doesn't have a facebook anymore. Felix Omni Signature.png 20:44, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
I like your sister better and better, Felix. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 13:52, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Site notice[edit source]

I fixed the layout problems for you by moving the style stuff to Common.css. I agree completely with the overall protest, but hadn't thought of posting anything here about it. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 18:47, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

The color stuff doesn't show up for me, but I suppose it wasn't necessary anyway. After today's blackout I'd like to leave some sort of notice up, but it doesn't have to be the sitenotice. Maybe something on the main page. Felix Omni Signature.png 21:43, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Have you force-refreshed the site? It works for me in both Chrome and Firefox, and I just made a fix so it'll work for logged-out users. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 21:57, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
I do like the message. Much respective in it. 72.148.31.114 23:14, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
It works now. Felix Omni Signature.png 23:32, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Since the blackout day is over, I removed the sitenotice. I'll let you figure out what to put on the main page. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:34, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
I pretty much recycled the message. Thanks for your support. Felix Omni Signature.png 16:09, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
Looks fine to me. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 16:19, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
WHy would I oppose this message. This piece of legislation is, clearly, horrible, and will never achieve what is is meant to do, attack pirating sites. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 17:55, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
It's sad though that some how in among on this bureaucracy that this happened... and that's sad, cause a few texmods and texmod it's self that was on that site - are gone. Ariyen 22:26, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
Acutally, no, that's not sad, that is exactly what they should be doing - targeting sites that actively encourage piracy and prosecute the owners of the site. Not the lack of due process encoded in SOPA/PIPA where a site (and any site that linked to it) could be removed from DNS by anyone making an alleged accusation of copyright infringement.
There are plenty of other file-storage sites out there (my current go-to is Mediafire) that don't actively encourage priacy. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 23:01, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
As Gabe Newell said, piracy is a service problem. Provide better service than the pirates, and you won't have much trouble. The best examples are iTunes, spotify and steam. The ratio of illegal games to legal games played has been completely tipped over since I started actually going to the steam store. Of course, there will always be arses that just want the stuff for free, but sure, counter those instead of ruining half of the internet.--TalkpageEl_Nazgir 23:19, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
It's only sad, cause of some of the texmod extensions, etc. that were there - are no longer accessible. Not what the company did, (which i'm still confused on). 72.148.31.114 08:08, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Arnout, I wanted people to know that the message only has meaning if the editors of GuildWiki stand behind it. As for the Mega situation, I'm on the fence. If the federal prosecutors have strong evidence that the Mega bigwigs were in fact conspiring to commit criminal copyright infringement and money laundering, then they certainly acted correctly. So far I've seen no evidence though, just hearsay. Felix Omni Signature.png 10:13, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

In that case, you achieved your point. I don't think anyone here is pro PIPA/SOPA. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 10:34, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
I was going off of what the article said: "The site provided financial incentives for uploading popular content" I never uploaded to Megaupload myself so I have no experience of what that side of the service was actually like. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:06, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
CNN's article has another, more specific quote from prosecutors: "The conspirators allegedly paid users whom they specifically knew uploaded infringing content and publicized their links to users throughout the world." Whether these allegations are true or not is something that will have to be proven in court. They had also obtained "20 search warrants in eight countries," and this is a key part of due process - SOPA/PIPA would have made such warrants unnecessary. It is unfortunate that this affects many people who used Megaupload legitimately without any intent to commit piracy, but there's not much anyone can do about that. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 19:14, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

I struggle to believe that[edit source]

You're not basing it off timestamps, are you? I was in-game (WoW) during that Steam conversation, so my input on both Steam and his talk page was staggered. The spam was loosely based off of a YouTube video by a friend of mine; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0V0TtlfVp98

So all-in-all, I did it in a minute and a half (at most) while waiting for a healer to join my group after someone with no spirit called it a day.

Also I don't have you on FB or MSN or anything. I feel snubbed. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.png A F K When Needed 09:47, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Ha, no one does. Felix is the intermissional man of mastery! Wait, lemme try that again.
The International man of mystery! --TalkpageEl_Nazgir 13:50, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
Given that my MSN is clearly displayed on my user page, I fail to see how it's my fault. Felix Omni Signature.png 00:30, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
...touché. User A F K When Needed Signature Icon.png A F K When Needed 02:28, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

Wiki upgrade[edit source]

Finally. I remember they wanted to get us on 1.17 right after we moved here. Oh well, from everything I've seen, 1.18 is much better, so hopefully it will have been worth the wait. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:41, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

It was kind of a surprise, to be honest- I just happened to be on IRC at the right time. I've been informed that there may be some compatibility issues with SMW (among other extensions) but the Curse team has done what they consider to be an extensive amount of testing and hopefully nothing will break too badly. If you do see something exploding, let me know or let Wynthyst know directly. Felix Omni Signature.png 07:17, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Is that #gwiki? Are Curse people on there regularly? I haven't visited in forever... —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:07, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Oh, and SMW seems to be working just fine - Nick isn't freaking out, at least, and he accounts for 90% of the SMW we actually use right now. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:10, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, Wynthyst is usually there and Kaelten still idles most of the time. Felix Omni Signature.png 23:20, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
If I'm not in #gwiki, I'm always in #gww (old habits :D). -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 04:34, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
Still using IRC in the year 2012? Old people man. 75.142.155.43 04:46, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
Pfft, I love irc. Use to role play with it. Have quite a few stories posted on my blog that I created using irc with friends. :-) Also, less likely to get bombarded by bots, unlike yahoo or msn instant messengers (especially yahoo). 72.148.31.114 06:35, 8 March 2012 (UTC)


I can't add pages to my watchlist anymore. Why? Anyone else have this issue? I'm running Vista 32 bit with Chrome. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 15:12, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Huh, I'm getting that as well, win7-64 chrome and ie9 --JonTheMon 15:16, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
Same, WinXP/Chrome. Special:EditWatchlist and Special:EditWatchlist/raw work fine. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 17:06, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, but lazy. I don't want to edit my rawr watchlist for every page I want to watch. It also doesn't work on Windows 7 64 bit with Chrome. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 17:36, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
Ditto for Win7 64-bit and Firefox 10. I think we can say it's not a browser issue. JonTheMon has already contacted Wynthyst though. Felix Omni Signature.png 21:24, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
@Arnout: I wasn't saying specifically that you should use them instead, I was stating that for the sake of whoever ends up trying to fix this bug. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:19, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I took it like; euh, nub still uses "Watch"! ZOMG! ;-) Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 23:16, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
I'm running Chrome on Win7 64, and I am not having any problems at all with watching and unwatching pages. Can you expound on the problem a bit more? I also tested in in FireFox and IE9, and I'm not having any problems at all. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 18:12, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I created a secondary account and have been able to replicate the problem, it appears it's something in user permissions. I have submitted a request to have it investigated. --Wyn 18:37, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
This will be fixed very shortly, it appears that in your config you had writeapi permissions set to false for every historic usergroup and have had that setting forever.... With the upgrade to 1.18.1 this permission setting is what caused the problem. I was able to watchlist stuff because the curse usergroup has writeapi set to true. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 21:06, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

ST stuff[edit source]

I've been working on another wiki, changing it from the typical look to a st style. Just annoyed with coding. Anyway, was wondering if you like any type of star trek in the way of fan fiction... Like play by email, sms, irc, etc. ? Ariyen 04:48, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
