Clean slate

Tabula Rasa. Miss that game :( --Gimmethegepgun 02:50, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

Bakula Scott. Miss that name... not so much.   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 03:30, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
I don't know that name, but thats fine, because I'm just a lot Coffee-32x32.png overstimulated right now, and thus I'm going to go on a Ant-32x32.png ant about squirrels, except squirrel Squirrel-32x32.png is a very hard word to write with your eyes closed, so I will probably wander off topic, but what really is a good topic for random free writing? How about Music-2-32x32.png music, but that's very confining. How music tastes, like metal and chocolate Chocolate-47x47.jpg, and.... Shoe laces. Which taste nothing like Shoes-32x32.png shoes, nor laces, do NOT ask how I know that, and my left ring finger feels weird, and I don't know why, but I'm talking much much to much about myself, and thus we come to the first sequitor of the evening in which a flying monkey Monkey-32x32.png appears from the very depths of the dark sea itself to accost young maidens TinkerbellUnion.jpg saving young and strapping young men from very large unicorns Pink unicorn icon by gescheitert.gif with nothing but evil thoughts on their mind. Which reminds me of a bad fanfic I once read about how a human met a charr, and had little charr babies, which makes no sense, because the two species would not be compatible. Additionally, they defeated them in combat, but there are not female charr in combat, so that would be.... Odd. Because then it would have to be gay, otherwise it wouldn't make sense, but then, where did they get the little charr from, which reminds me of a conversation I had about Lady Gaga where I had to explain to a group of 20 year olds what a hermaphrodite is, it was very amusing until the point where they all started giving me wierd looks, and
I
realized
that I had fallen asleep at the wheel, and it was all just a dream about me typing something or other, and listening to Edguy, who I thank skuld for introducing me to. Additionally, the fanfic didn't actually exist, I dreamt about reading a bad fanfic, well, at least thats what my brain wants me to type, oh and one more thing, DO DA DO DA DO! Also, Take a look into the book of fantasy and poetry until you find that in your mind a feeling most unnaturally has taken hold, and growing bold, has caused quite a calamity while drumsticks dance around like candycanes 19px19px19px on a bright snowy summer evening in alberta, Mexico.

Mendeeeeeeel

Wikia made disgusting changes to the Monaco skin, particularly those involving the masthead and article tabs. And what the hell is Special:MyHome? Fix it please! Felix Omni Signature.png 19:33, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

MyHome looks like a glorified RC to me. --- VipermagiSig.JPG -- (contribs) (talk) 19:38, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
I'm a bit busy right now. --◄mendel► 22:37, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

Nyquil based Hallucinations

So there I was minding my own business being serious, when the world turned sidweays, but I was ok because I fell onto a tree, and I just stood there as everything/one else fell around me, and then the world turned all the way around, which was odd because I was looking at everything from a 3rd person perspective, but gravity only transformed itself for everything/one else, except my hair, which was long and flowing, and golden brown, and it just kept falling, and falling and falling, and then the scene changed.

A man stands on a street, he is large, and beside him stands a thin man, who is tall, the fat one is short, and has a mustache, both of them have a mustache. And they just stood there as an awesome guitar solo played in the background with a llama based music video advertising lubricant for motor oil.

Which is when everything went black, but I blame that on the horse which fell ontop of the camera crew, it was quite a large horse, and made out of wood, but it looked more like a rabbit or a badger. And some french people where shouting things off in the distance, but the horse kicked their castle, and it fell over.

REMEMBER CAPTAIN B! HE'S LIKE THE ALIMO, BUT BETTER. But then, I lolled. End scene, all actors exit stage up.

And then everyone ran away for no apparent reason, but then the ground appeared, which was quite reassuring except for the fact that it was made of chicken feathers, and body doubles of the pope. On a completely unrelated note, the pope was female at the time, and had incredible cleavage, nearly as good as Felix Omni's, who has Legendary Cleavage, and I should know. Perhaps he shouldn't have picked up that +3 Greater Sword of Endarkened Sealing.

It does absolutely no justice to your prose to say that there's evidence suggesting that at least one (if not several) of the popes in the middle ages were females. So, in order to ensure that all due praise is heaped upon the above, I won't mention it. (If I do, I blame the trojan horse, which used correctly, helps reduce the risk of equinely transmitted diseases and reduces the likelihood of unwanted pregnancy. Use as directed.)   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 06:16, September 26, 2009 (UTC)
Those popes didn't have any cleavage to speak of. --◄mendel► 17:54, September 26, 2009 (UTC)

Shameless advertisement and Giga ripoff

Come and take a look at my elite skill contest!--TalkpageEl_Nazgir 16:28, September 29, 2009 (UTC)

Your edit to the Zchallenge page

You said that the future prediction may change. Why is that? I asked on the talk page there, but I have no idea if you'll be passing by there again sometime soon. Are the rotations going to be reset for some reason? Or is it because of the plan to remove hero battles (are there any citations for that anyway? I've heard lots of people say it but no one official)? 199.102.47.72 15:56, October 8, 2009 (UTC)

I see you've received an answer there, and I've also butted in. Since you've started to edit all over the wiki in a useful way, why not make an account on wikia so we can recognize you when you do it again? (Or log in if you have one.) Thank you for sharing your thoughts! --◄mendel► 21:43, October 8, 2009 (UTC)

uhhh... I broke something

My final line (several lines in editing window) are beneath the bottom of the page because... well... for no reason that's obvious enough for me to notice. Just thought I'd give you a shout. A F K sig 2.jpg A F K When Needed 18:39, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

I used my time machine and fixed it already. --◄mendel► 18:42, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

Doing the right thing wrong

Forgive me, I know I can't talk on such a matter. But, when pointing out things that Rose has done, do you always have to come down on her like a ton of bricks?

I doubt she'd ignore you if you said "Yo, thanks for [1], [2] and [3]! I appreciate you trying to make GuildWiki a better, more friendly place to be. By the way, it might be worth trying to explain why this is bad for GuildWiki and rely less on using the policy to solely make your point, as then contributors who have a problem with authority will be more likely to take what you say on board. Regards, Mendel."

It might just be me, but when you point out something she has done wrong, you always seem to... be more blunt than you normally are. I don't think you're an overly blunt person who lets that get in the way of your point. Except when you talk to her. A F K sig 2.jpg A F K When Needed 22:12, October 15, 2009 (UTC) (Yes, I'm pretty much expecting you to pop onto my Talk Page with an identical header.)

Yes, I was in a bit of a hurry this morning, and it occurred to me later that I could have polished that a bit more. Especially the header. It is only sort of implied that I think mentioning the policies to those people at that time was the "right thing", and I fear she didn't read it that way, judging from her response. --◄mendel► 22:38, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Broken Links...

[1]   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 09:44, October 20, 2009 (UTC)

Deleted. You can find a link atop RecentChanges. --◄mendel► 05:51, October 22, 2009 (UTC)

Janitorial rights

I'd like to request image move (if you need rights for this) and deletion powers :< Jennalee 10:56, October 20, 2009 (UTC)

I think you must be at least admin for deletion powers. Image move is a little easier, I have it as a (rollback) user group, which was given to me for that very reason. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 14:50, October 20, 2009 (UTC)
Done. And yes, you'd need admins to have delete. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 17:36, October 20, 2009 (UTC)
Nice try! RandomTime 17:53, October 20, 2009 (UTC)
But but... Power comes with responsibility, and there's so much more of that attached to being an admin :( Jennalee 21:30, October 20, 2009 (UTC)


Pic doesn't wanna update

File:Lina icewind.png doesn't wanna update for some reason, when I upload a new version it shows the old one (no it's not a browser issue), when I upload a 2nd new one, it shows the new version in the "previous versions".... then I tried reverting to that, but it STILL shows old version, can you please fix this? Thanks. --Takisig2.png 00:31, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

It is a cache issue, because I see the updated version, if that version is on Shing Jea.--Łô√ë Roar.îğá†ħŕášħ is hosting a Card Creation Contest! 00:34, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
Wow, you're a good spotter. :D I have tried reloading the image several times but it still loads the old one =( --Takisig2.png 00:44, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
I uploaded a version with PPE now, so the big one updated and is fixed, but the thumbnail version is still the old one >_> seems to be the same bug as with the Dragon Gauntlet pics I once uploaded long ago... I hope it'll fix itself over time. --Takisig2.png 03:21, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
It's a server issue. If you have purged the Image (with https://guildwiki.fandom.com/wiki/File:Lina_icewind.png?action=purge ), waited some time (quarter hour to an hour) and did that again, all that's left is to use Special:Contact to report it. You can see that the image has uploaded correctly by displaying it in a size that hasn't been used yet; you'll usually see the new version then. --◄mendel► 05:55, October 22, 2009 (UTC)
