Uhm GW:1RV much?
After you stated that was her opinion, you gave your own opinion as well. So you're not really proving your point. I agree with Entropy, that is far too obscure to see as a reference. It's named after a famous Canthan Mesmer, Kitah, not a misspelling of a word. Silver Sunlight (T/C) 19:02, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
- Cress Arvein, The Hobo, GW-Lou-Saydus, myself, and Silver Sunlight are in agreement. Gimmethegepgun, Konradishes, and St. Michael also agree implicitly in that they did not re-add the note (see first section on talk, and history of skill page). If you want to get into a pure numbers fight, then the odds are stacked against you. I am certain that most of the rest of the community is on my side also. And yes, you should see GW:1RV.

- Wait, what? Why is my name there? Cress Arvein 21:56, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
(Reset indent) Sure, the GW designer have NEVER put in silly jokes before. Why the hell is there any trivia at all if you guys throw a hissy fit everytime someone points out the intended joke?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (contribs) 26 November 2008 .
- You're the only one who seems to be throwing a hissy fit, here. (T/C) 00:34, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
- I do not think that this skill is a reference to the term Kiter.--Łô√ë îğáturkey 00:36, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
- (edit conflict) The fact that they've put in "silly jokes" before isn't reason enough to assume that "Kitah" is a reference to "kiter", especially as Kitah and Kiter can be pronounced differently - some accents will pronounce the R in Kiter in such a way that that it wouldn't make sense to have the "ah" at the end of Kitah (I'm looking at Americans here, mostly). Most of the trivia in Guild Wars is a little more sophisticated as well. I actually read this name as Kee-tah (both syllables elongated, with the stress on the first). --R Phalange 00:39, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Example of random trivia... that is even the same concept: "Torc'qua is very similar to Tok'ra, a civilization in the sci-fi series: Stargate SG-1."
Trivia is not official lore, it's TRIVIA. Fine, leave the damn thing out. If you seriously can't understand the concept, you're not going to get it no matter what I say. Pathetic.
- There's a big difference between kiter/kitah and Torc'qua/Tok'ra, though: references to random sci-fi/fantasy stuff are extremely common in Guild Wars, while references to... I don't know what to call it, "gangstah"-speak? are non-existent. In other words, there is a huge precedent when it comes to geeky/nerdy references, but no precedent at all for this one. —Dr Ishmael 05:33, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
