Cape image

Since you seem to change guilds somewhat often, maybe you could just upload the cape image to a generic name like File:Ariyen guild cape.jpg or something, so you don't have to bother with a new filename every time. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:11, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Hm, interesting thought. fixed. ty. Just haven't found a "home" yet. Ariyen 22:16, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply on my talk page - very nice and helpful

Suggestions =

ShmEk, May I suggest that you can always help us here with the Main page, by suggesting changes to the main page on Main Page/editcopy or the talk page there? Also, you can use my Schedule User:Ariyen/Schedule1 {{User:Ariyen/Schedule1}} on your homepage and link to that or my other Schedule User:Ariyen/Schedule {{User:Ariyen/Schedule}}. Just thought this might help. Ariyen 02:26, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

I greatly appreciate your comments here. I like the page setup you have with the schedules linked to it. I've always liked seeing a few days in advance (and behind actually too) on the different dailys. I use the mainpage for stuff all the time, but my first glance before going to game is the dailys, so I may likely be having to change to your schedule page. This same mainpage was proposed in the past and then changed to what we had for quite a long time.... now the bland less info design is back. Thanks again for you comments, and I do need to help with some input there. I'm not too hot with code, but I can manage somewhat. Best regards!--ShmEk 02:47, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Additionally, have you included the schedule in parenthesis as a possible page edit? I didn't know about the editcopy page so thanks again for directing me there :)--ShmEk 02:52, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Wow, the more I look at your first schedule......... it's great. Please propose that for the new mainpage so I don't have to just steal it and add it. Fine job! I'll definitely be using it. I can always click the guild wiki logo to go to the mainpage in the future I suppose. Yours is my new browser setting. Sad, about the nostalgia of it all having to move to a different page after 5 years, but usefulness prevails. Thanks again SO much for messaging about this!--ShmEk 02:59, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Added the Schedule in Parenthesis, so you could copy and paste on your own page at your convenience. I'm still trying to figure out how to change up that section to benefit and be more useful. I've come up with one idea, but kept hitting dead spots. Still thinking though, so I haven't given up. 05:40, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
If you like the index function of the Main Page and you want the daily forecast, use this on a userpage:
 {{:Daily forecast}} (or one of Ariyen's if you prefer)
 {{:Main Page}}
That will transclude the schedule/forecast tables at the top, then transclude the Main Page below it. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 06:07, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Java request

I have something "fun" that i'd like to post on my userspace, but it's in Java... :-( So dunno what title.js I should use, etc. or how to transfer it to the userspace... I feel so 'down' for not knowing enough in Java... My class that I took close to that... Only got to learn , dos, and this microsoft crap... I learned html on my own, with the help of "papers" from the teacher... Know a little bit of css on my own... but yea the class that was suppose to teach the "basics" never did... teacher mostly stayed in the room, only to come out with "stories" and urged us to work on computers, and read the books on our own... Books were mostly on networking and operating systems and the "cirriculum" was supposedly as if there was to be more... So, I'm stuck... Ariyen 23:06, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

If it's actually JavaScript, then you can put it in Special:Mypage/monobook.js. It'll run everywhere on the wiki, and only for you. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 23:50, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
Thank you! Ariyen 03:26, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
It works! :-D I'm ponied . ^.^ Ariyen 03:27, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
K, in case anyone was wondering. I went here and gotten a my little pony. You can pick any you want, etc. and put them on any site. Been trying to put it on my blog, but I'm not an "advanced" member, so I can't edit the part of my blog, where it'd go. :-( Thankful i it works here. I have the link in the browser to let her out on any site, but I prefer to not have to click that link so much. ;-) Ariyen 03:33, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

AFK When Needed

Please respect his wishes not to be contacted. As your friend, I would appreciated it if you do not contact him at all. As a beaurucrat, I am asking you nicely, once, to stop contacting him on this wiki, thru the wiki email, or on the wiki's irc channel.--Łô√ë Gigathrash sig G.jpgîğá†ħŕášħ 12:14, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

I understand, but I was not commenting at him at all, but only giving a suggestion to Arnout. I cannot do this on his page? I find that being "helpful" for someone else, henders a selfish one. You understand? I'm not even wanting to talk to one that doesn't wnat to listen anyway, but still. It's best just to leave alone a harmless comment. It's stupid and silly to remove it, despite he personally doesn't want it. It's not directed at him at all, but a response to Arnout. It's silly to have to "create" a page on Arnout's talk just to answer the same things that's being said on his own. To me, I'd just put up with it. You I have on those on my talk that I wanted to have left me alone. I'm not "selfish". Please consider this, before leaving a message. ty. 18:18, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Sending you a message giga to further clarify the "bureaucracy" that's being caused for really "no reason" except over stupid and silly things. Please read this message, before a response. Ty. Ariyen 18:35, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

As I stated on ishmael's talk

You're not assuming good faith, if you feel it's questionable then make a new character and draw him into other naga. 09:11, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

I used new and old characters... I've not see him attack the others. I just think this is something to take to here. I am assuming good faith as I have seen that same boss on 4 accounts over the past 3 days... doing those quests for cny. It doesn't even have that note on gww nor have any others mentioning it... You could open a ticket with support, but either way... It's best to determine the truth and that's why I'm suggestiong at least the forum, if not that then support. Ariyen 09:44, 6 February 2012 (UTC)


Please don't use this wiki as a scratchpad. There are other websites to serve that purpose, like pastebin. (I don't really know what you were doing with that page, so just treat this as a reminder.) —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 01:07, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Sorry. :-S Was tempted to add it to the poetry ones already here, but decided against that. Two here is enough. My apologies. Ariyen 01:24, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Btw, it wasn't a "Scribble", but another poem. You can read (if you want), this to see what the actual "wording" ("warble" as you call it) was. It showed up appropriately in preview, but I had forgotten the <br> and it'd looked accurate. I just decided "not" to host the poem here in the end. :-) I don't do pastebin, that's stealing artwork of creatives like stories and poems really. I prefer against them. Though if you don't want me to post any poems or stories at all on here. Just let me know, I can remove them and link to them else where. Ariyen 03:59, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

You should hate me because I'm better than you.

An older friend of mine created this, and as a parent who enjoys the show, I was wondering your opinion on it. --Łô√ë Gigathrash sig G.jpgîğá†ħŕášħ 17:52, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

This hoof approves. ^.^ In other words and all kidding aside, I had been pondering that it's a neutral show, but still geared slightly towards girls (yet appeals to both genders), because of the female friendships. Now I'd like to see some real brony stories, just pure side stories away from the girls kind of like the guy side in some episodes to show more of the neutrality. I think that'd be cool and send the message even further of it being a neutral show. However, that's just me and I wouldn't know how, etc. to send that. Already been busy bugging a few people, including my senator on things. Ariyen 18:49, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

I hope

We didn't scare you/make you mad with our discussion on the beer subject. It's not that we look down on you for your taste in beer, its just that where I'm from (and the same goes for El Nazgir) Heineken isn't held in very high regard. Even though it is probably the Netherlands greatest export product (you can buy Heineken all over the world, in the most silly of places).
I also realise we might have put the fright in you with our enthousiasm for beer, and have gone much further than the scope of your question. I drink Grolsch Pilsener in my daily life. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 20:03, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

It's cool. Just like to find out/ learn about more beer. bud light is the only one to handle here that's "decent", the others like ish said are really "horrible" one being natural light that's like the "worse" drink ever. bout like drinking dirty water with alcohol. Me? Kinda prefer the whiskey/wine, but even some wine here sucks. Can't diss the Jack though - that's the favorite in whiskey. ;-) Ariyen 20:13, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
I don't like wine, unless it has CO2 in it. (I know, luxuary kid) Hardly drink wiskey though. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 10:37, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
I like Bacardi Rum and I found out that there's a new already made (with alcohol in it) Strawberry Daiquiri from that brand. I'm interesting in trying this out, if I can find out what stores are or would be selling it. Ariyen 22:52, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
That has been on the market here for nearly a year now. You can get it at the liquour store or the better supermarket... Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 09:23, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Didn't notice it on their site last year. :-S Agh, go to sign and hit submit. Ooops. Got a little one helping now atm. ^.^ Ariyen 17:13, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Paragon Vabbian images

The new images you uploaded are the correct armor this time, but they are still very low quality. The resolution is quite low, and it doesn't look like you had anti-aliasing enabled at all. Personally, I'd prefer we keep the higher-quality images, even if the contrast between skin color and armor color isn't very good. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:17, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Had the anti-aliasing up at the 4x and enabled. I also had gimp save at the highest quality and it looks like any other image, just smaller size, but that's because I screenshot and cut out the image it's self from the screenshot. That is all. Same as the necro and others that I've done. 17:46, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but that image doesn't look like it had the anti-aliasing on at all. Look at how choppy the outline of the legs are, and compare to the previous image. Jink 17:50, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
Hrm, Don't see where you see "Choppy", I see it in the colored one as well, but the other being so "Dark" is why it's hidden. Really, look at the other closer as well and "compare" better. Tx. :-) 18:09, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
If you can't see it, then please don't upload pictures. Anyway, I've replaced them all. Jink 18:30, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Try comparing this to this. The first one was Bikeboy's first upload, which had no AA. After I informed him of the issue, he uploaded the second image, with 4x AA. Your image is more similar to the first one than the second. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 18:31, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
Just cause if I can't see it, doesn't mean i can't improve and upload better ones, making sure of everything. It's bad to not tell someone to not do things, bad edits of a wiki, imo. If they do wrong with another image and it still looks bad, then I can understand you asking me not to that time, but this is a one time "oops" wasn't "perfect". I got the game to start saving the files in bmp since and been making sure that in game it's set to 4x since and it does improve gameplay view. Ariyen 21:02, 4 April 2012 (UTC)


Since you made the edits earlier, I figured I'd let you know that I changed {{Flux}} to use SMW. It queries Property:Flux begin date and returns the page with the most recent date. That property is set by {{Effect box}} when given the input parameter | flux date = YYYYMM01 (day-of-month should always be 01). So until someone creates a page for May's Flux, it'll keep displaying Hive Mind. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 03:38, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. Is there a way to do "unknown", until the new page is created? Sorry, was logged out (when I signed this) as I got a pesty computer that likes to shut off, if the power cord is "touched"... Much appreciated. Ariyen 03:42, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
I do like the new way of the Flux. Thank you! Ariyen 04:45, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Duh, that was stupid of me. Fixed to query on the current month. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 13:53, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Spam bans

I will ask of you the same thing I asked of Arnout - please don't post ban notices. They are unnecessary and create an extra step for admins to clean up. I'm seriously thinking about deleting the {ban} template in any case, because it just isn't needed anymore. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 12:17, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

What Ish means to say, is that he thanks you for your time and effort. But next time, take less time and effort, and make it easier for the admins too. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel of someone elses computer. 16:01, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
