Walking away[edit source]

Astounding how simple text can get your blood pressure up like this. My motto, "wiki = people", is again confirmed. It's a pity though to see you go, I had hoped you were above others' pettiness, but RL is RL, and aggression is not good in either case; this wiki is certainly not worth that. May we meet again in better circumstances, or, better yet, may your leaving be a mere wikibreak! --◄babbyeater► 21:18, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi.

I'd like to apologize for being confrontational towards your comments ironically what I was trying to figure out if you were being or not when GW:AGF and let's respect his wishes both should have pointed me in the direction of reading your comments as being nothing more than helpful.

So GL with the Contemplation of Purity.jpg coming along and hope you're back with us soon. =) -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 21:51, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Life Update[edit source]

Life has been taken over by the arrival of the Babyzilla. Delivery went fine, tho' I had to unexpectedly have a c-section. Both I and the lil' 'Zilla are doing great (even if I'm rather exhausted, but that's to be expected). Jink 14:50, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Ohhhh, the fun has most certainly started (it's actually been a week since I delivered, and I'm just now making an update here XD ) Jink 15:25, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
It'd be quite hard for Viper to have experience in that, unless he either changed his gender, got pregnant and gave birth since his last userpage update (and became a teenage mom), or he has been lying to us from the start about his personal info :P Anyway, GZ on the baby Jink. Now I hope you don't mind me being curious, but how did you name her/him?--TalkpageEl_Nazgir 16:02, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
It took a lot of deliberation between myself and Ishy, but I suggested "Kimberly" one day and we both decided it was perfect. Jink 16:25, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
My oldest sister has 2 kids (2 year+10months and ~1 year old) running around, and they visit a lot (heck, the youngest one lived here for the first half year; their home wasn't built until then). That's how I know babies are way awesome.
Also, Nazgir, did you read what I said? Because I can't find where I said giving birth was fun :P I said the fun started, i.e. after birth. Just a friendly reminder. --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 16:38, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Hmmm, whoops. I kinda misread some stuff >> Anyway, Kimberly's a very nice name. Hope you (and ishy and Kimberly herself) have a lot of fun.--TalkpageEl_Nazgir 16:41, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

I suspect the conversation went something like this...

Jink: "How about Kimberly?"
Ish: "OMG PERFECT"

I actually came back to the wiki today because the thought crossed my mind; "Didn't Ishy get his lady pregnant a while back?" I always wanted to congratulate you for that, but it wound up being an awkwardly long time before I found out, so I guess I'll congratulate you for both bits now! You two must be very proud to have such a lovely kid, and I hope you enjoy entering this new stage of your life together. Powersurge360 17:19, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

And THIS is why I can't have nice people over for dinner anymore.[edit source]

So there the chapsticked detective stood in the limelight, a glowing anubis of enigmas that dragged the taint of their foul humanity across the porcelain face of my mother night. But that was not the worst of the deception for the truth has made ye fret, and that was when the personification of Tables stopped reading from his latest work. Twas quite a tale, commented the tiger. Not as good as the second, quothed the Robin. Yet, I was speechless at such a travesty as this, to have the Gaul to assume that the printer was existent in this dimension was akin to diacide itself, assuming first you wrapped it in a small bun and fed it to a child that was floating in a river watched over by the diamond eyed lady. Which allows me to bring up the water so gracefully, that such mortals would not understand its true meaning or power, for the water is my root of all things, and from it sprung our lives, but not really, because that was just something I got of an old cereal box I found in the basement by the pentagrams and horn scratches. These defied the judgment of the Great Unicrons, and the Narwhals were cast out into the void, bent on destroying the nubile maiden, the unicorn's prey of choice. But the unicorns outwitted them, having ensorcelled the rainbow to their bidding long ago. And by bits and pieces the lies were dragged out of the man hole, to glare accusingly at the faces of passerbies, each one its father, and each one its mother. While the night came crashing down on the detective as a great crescendo of decibels wrought from the |. I feast. The petty thoughts of the city swirl around me in a maelstrom of regret, denial, and guilt. This is my world, and you are cordially invited.--Łô√ë Roar.îğá†ħŕášħ is hosting a Card Creation Contest! 00:18, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

Ascending the Mauve Staircase, the one with the bust of Cornelius on the end, not the one with the David.[edit source]

Let there be rejoicing screamed the mad king from his chamber window as his palace burned around him. For I have learned to fly! The peasants looked up with glassy stares of a leaden pity for the insanity that had so rueful grappled their dictator to his doom. With a spang and a shrak a timber ended the patriarch's existence, and there was much rejoicing in the slaughter of the damned and the broken. For the True End had risen from it's shackled grave whence it had slept since before existence graced her tender caress upon the mortal realm. The mid-wife howled, and the woman cried, and the baby was born with teeth. For it was to snap at the world, and howl at the blood moon that tormented it into treachery so long sought by its dread father. A hand clamps in the night, ebbing the flow of water into the unholy cistern, for the Gods had not abandoned this world for naught. They had left a figment of a truer evil then End could ever achieve. They had created Man. And Man was not happy about his future untimely end. For our darkness outshines his light. Life trembles as the dexterous fingers play its many cords, weaving them into one master note that would sunder End, and leave only the eternal night. The Guarding Dark walked.--Łô√ë Roar.îğá†ħŕášħ is hosting a Card Creation Contest! 07:27, October 30, 2009 (UTC)

A Man Wearing The Hat Walks Down a Road.[edit source]

Stretching out to grasp at ephemeral locks with serpentine keys; the child sits alone in their chair. The Hat thinks thoughts of plasticine skys, and morbid car parks full of the freshly shaven flock from the inner circle of downtown. The Hat walks The Man down a road. A neon glare meets the sizzle of the despairing rain, constantly throwing itself from its cloudy abode to the succubi of the earth, and the lechers of the lakes. The great puba is ominously silent, a single glaring stolid face defying the rain to seek happiness. Reflected in its stony visage is a darkened torment for the ones that fill themselves with glee over the world. The rain falls. The gutters fill with the hopes of ancestors long forgotten and run a deep crimson with the sacrificed goats that their wishes desire. The Man stoops to touch the flow, and is transfixed by the monstrosity of a dreaded fate. The planets aline, and his love returns to him from behind the curtain she swaddled her despair in all those years ago. The rain falls where the man stood. A child wears The Hat, and burns the effigies of the puba until the black ash is lost in the night. The rain falls. Up.--Łô√ë Roar.îğá†ħŕášħ is hosting a Card Creation Contest! 03:41, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

With the recent attention directed at the avatar log on the admin noticeboard, I couldn't help but check out your new avatar.

I'm sorry, I hadn't seen RC when you hopped on irc (and in fact didn't see your first appearance until after you'd left, and your second one was rather short), or I'd have known what you were on about and talked to you. I had hoped he and I were past that sort of thing. :(

Re: your staff noticeboard post, do you really think "my try" would be better than the one your husband has thankfully undertaken for us? He's clearly a capable coder, I doubt I could solve this task any better with that tool. It's not Dr Ishmael, it's the tool that is not holding up to the criteria that I am applying, and they are probably different than those he had in mind when he selected that extension. I wish he would address the points instead of running away. --◄mendel► 04:37, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

After a while, a person gets sick of having to fight the same battle over and over and over. That's when it becomes better to just leave instead of continuing with it and continuing to get stressed out about it. Some things just aren't worth it in the end. Because you just seem to keep undermining and challenging Ish, it makes doing anything for the wiki seem like it's not worth doing, because undoubtedly you'll come up with a different idea and override Ish with it.

Possible oopsie[edit source]

Regarding this block the other day. Rask says it wasn't him, which is dubious, but unless I'm doing checkuser wrong (which is entirely possible) that IP doesn't seem to be associated with him in any way. It's probably a proxy, but I'm just wondering how you arrived at the conclusion that it was Rask. Felix Omni Signature.png 07:56, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

I checked the IP and it came from the same city as Rask's previous edits. Perhaps it wasn't him, just someone who happened to be in the same city who just happened to think it was a good idea to slather "cock gobbler" over Ish's title page, but since they did that, I wager aren't losing anything by my month-long block.

GW2[edit source]

Is beautiful. I haven't been able to bring myself to play anything else since the beta ended. Jink 20:26, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Exactly the same. I've been browsing the gw2 forums instead and talking to some friends about gw2, and doing generally gw2 related things. I think I might be addicted. GW2. --TalkpageEl_Nazgir 22:37, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
I finally gave in and started doing stuff on GW2W. I'm currently trying to get SMW installed there. I think I might be addicted to wikis. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:43, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Look at this guy. He is awesome. :3 Jink 22:50, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Looks cool. Though, I'm surprised it's not a female. Is there slots for more than one character in gw2? That's one thing I liked about gw. Ariyen 01:41, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
We got 5 slots for the beta, which seems like a logical number for them to keep for release. It's enough to have 1 character of each race, but not enough for 1 of each profession, so they can make money selling extra slots to the people that need 1 of every profession. Like me. And they'll probably be sold in 2-packs, so I'll have to buy 2 of them and have 1 slot left over. Oh well. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 02:47, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
The betas for GW1 had four slots. And yes, male, because eye candy. I'm also an RPer, and he's a main character of mine. I also have a female charr. Why is it so surprising that I didn't pick a female? Jink 02:51, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Standard practice for MMOs - give fewer slots than possible base character builds. GW1 - 4 slots for 6 professions, +2 slots for additional campaigns that add 2 professions, so 8/10 if you buy the Trilogy. STO - 2 slots for 3 careers in 2 factions, so 2/6. GW2 - 5 slots for 8 professions in 5 races, so 5/40. ArenaNet's gonna be raking in the dough from the completionists. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 02:58, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Didn't the beta have 5 slots? :S I thought it had been long confirmed that the release would have 5 slots, but I didn't really pay attention to it in the beta. I thought I had 2 slots left over after making 3 chars... And I will be doing the same, buying slots up to 8 in total, despite my dislike for the engineer I want one of each profession. --TalkpageEl_Nazgir 12:25, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, that's what I said? Jink was talking about GW1 having 4 slots. And if that has been confirmed, I would be fine with 5 slots. And on the engineer, that was the profession I was most skeptical about up until this beta... and ended up being the one I played for 90% of the beta. I tried a Charr elementalist, a Norn mesmer, and a human warrior, but never got any of them past level 4, while I got the engineer to level 23, on last available personal story step, and 100% exploration of all 3 starter areas. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 13:11, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Engineer is awesome, but so are Thiefs, and Warriors, and Rangers. I will start a female human warrior, like my current main, but beyond that? Dun't know yet, although it will probably turn towards a thief and a mesmer. My bro will probably start a ranger or ele, or engineer. SO MANY CHOICES! Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 14:30, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
I couldn't *stand* the Thief. Initiative + clearly-best skill? Yeah, no. Body Shot all the time, everywhere. The Vulnerability-spam on that thing overshadowed everything else, mostly because Vulnerability increases damage for *everyone*. Initiative is a really really bad mechanic for my playstyle :P Ah well. To each their own.
The Guardian was surprisingly much fun. Hadn't expected that. The Sword was by far my favorite. Very solid auto-attack with good damage and cleave. A 12-recharge teleport that blinds in an AoE. Zealot's Defense that just tears a dude to pieces fast, and blocks projectiles for 3 seconds. All in all, good mobility, decent AoE, great single-target, all in one weapon. Used both the Shield and Focus in the offhand often. Shield of Judgment was a neat buff and more solid AoE damage, but Shield of Absorption was useless for melee (great on the Scepter though). Ray of Judgment pumped some buffs and some damage, while the other skill (er.. Shield of Wrath maybe?) blocked 3 attacks or exploded for a load of damage. Definitely going to roll a Guardian once I've played Ele/War/Necro to death.
Staff mesmer was ridiculous. The only weapon I liked for my Mesmer. That is all. --Vipermagi 18:05, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Staff Mesmer with clone. And Blink. I loved blink. I loved it so much. However, the class I had the most fun with was Necromancer. I played all weekend with a brony guild I joined and we were 2 warriors, necro, mesmer, and a ranger. One problem is the ranger's pets are still a hassle to keep care of. I would often find myself trying to res someone important and end up raising that damn devourer for the fifth time today. However, I am LOVING the crafting system. Got 100+ chef and 25 jeweler. I can't wait for another beta or release, just to craft more. (Gigathrash, logging in takes like, 5 seconds.)--Łô√ë Gigathrash sig G.jpgîğá†ħŕášħ 19:02, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Ah sorry ish, misread there. So yeah, my favourite class was the ele. Tried out engineer to level 7 first but didn't like it, then started an ele with a friend who went guardian, and I didn't leave it except for a short pause when I made a necro to try out whom I got to lvl 10 from a single night of WvW from lvl 2, but of whom I was later locked out for a long time by the server switch because he had gone offline while in a WvW area. They did fix that in the end so in the last few hours I went and tried him out in PvE a bit when WvW had died by 5 am or so. Then switched back to my ele for the ending event at 8 am.
I played my ele to lvl 13 or so in PvE then went into WvW, came back out at lvl 18, PvE'd a bit more to 20 and went right back to WvW until I was lvl 25 at the end of the beta. I enjoyed the class' versatility with the different elements, and to my great surprise I more often than not found myself playing as support to others offensive builds, a role which I hated in GW1.
And to pick on what giga edit conflicted me with, On ele I also absolutely LOVED the lightning teleport utility skill in WvW (not as useful in PvE though due to mobility being less of an issue). I haven't actually looked into crafting yet. WvW was too busy sucking me in so I just sold all my crafting mats. I did hear from many players that some of the dropped materials seem to be a bit out of balance (for example I remember someone on the beta forums saying he got 4 times as much jute than leather)--TalkpageEl_Nazgir 19:23, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
THE PETS! Oh god. I've seen like three pets that weren't dead. --Vipermagi 21:02, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
@Viper - I actually found myself using the sword + dagger combo a lot and using dual pistols in certain situations (flying targets). But I'm also the sort to play one profession for a while to really get the hang of it. Next BWE I'll try something different. Probably play necromancer more. Jink 15:06, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
(RI) One thing I will complain about though is the character creation. There wasn't any rough options, everyone was just so smooth and baby faced. I want to play an old man, damnit! And Rytlock. Oh, by Celestia's Beard, Rytlock. He looked like a tired doggy that has missed his nappy times.--Łô√ë Gigathrash sig G.jpgîğá†ħŕášħ 22:21, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

From that image, it looks like you "can" make them look older in gw2 compared to gw1. (Oh Jink, I just am use to knowing of most of the girls (that I met and befriended in game) creating female characters to start off. Sorry, I was just surprised.) Ariyen 01:36, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
I'm happy to have bucked the trend, then. Jink 03:40, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Three clocks were struck by two blind bellkeepers.[edit source]

As the carrots waved to and fro in the easterlies, so does the nation bend, twist, curl, and break around the breath of the ocelot. In the world of the fallen, only the deceased and murdered can walk upright. Their spines lash them to their journeys, propelled forever onward by the click and sneers of the cobbles. The time was not right. The place was not right. There were no moons in the sky, and all the stars had died. Even still, the carpenters danced. They danced. They danced. From The Man in the Hat, to the Child. They danced. From the Julian, to the fingers of all speeches. They danced. Even for the Alterviest. They danced. Green by green. Row by row. The purple pustules which had so polluted our populace were purged by prejudiced preachers and presumptuous pretenders. Still. There was no moon, and all the stars had died. The Ocelot breathed for the first time. They Danced.--Łô√ë Gigathrash sig G.jpgîğá†ħŕášħ 02:42, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
