Weapon and charm collectors (ancient history)[]

Hey Frostty1, what have you done with Weapon and charm collectors? I see you've done something, the recent changes shouts that at me, I can't visually see what though! Can you explain it please, slowly, i'm very tired =P Skuld 05:44, 30 Sep 2005 (EST)

There was an update and the items/stats of the items that the collectors were offering, had changed. I updated the collector pages with the current (at that time) items/stats of the items info. Frostty1 00:56, 3 October 2006 (CDT)

Messing around with tables (ancient history)[]

I also would like to know why you are messing around with all the tables and putting dashes in the empty fields. All it seems to me that you are doing is making the tables look bad. If there is a good reason for this please enlighten us. --Rainith 05:53, 30 Sep 2005 (EST)

I wasn't "messing around with all the tables". SOME tables had dashes in the empty fields and SOME DIDN'T. I was doing the OPPOSITE of "making the tables look bad", I was trying to homogenize the tables, to make them all look the consistent. I can see that even a year later, the collector tables are still inconsistent. As an example (prior to someone 'fixing' them)...
This table uses dashes in empty cells. http://gw.gamewikis.org/wiki/General_collectors_%28Kaineng_City%29
This table leaves empty cells blank. http://gw.gamewikis.org/wiki/General_collectors_%28Jade_Sea%29
This table uses None in empty cells. http://gw.gamewikis.org/wiki/Collectors
This table uses N/A in empty cells. http://gw.gamewikis.org/wiki/Armor_collectors_%28Southern_Shiverpeaks%29
Personally, I think tables with blank spaces look unfinished and tables with "N/A" or "none" look cluttered. Frostty1 00:56, 3 October 2006 (CDT)

Resurrect (Action)[]

Resurrect (Action) isn't a skill, so it shouldn't be under "related skills." If you want to link it from an article, it'd be under "related articles" or "see also," whichever the S&F page says to use. --Fyren 20:24, 13 October 2006 (CDT)

Thanks for pointing that distinction to me. I was just following an example I have previously seen. Glad you took the time to let me know the correct format. Frostty1 12:32, 26 October 2006 (CDT)

Moved edit[]

Hey Frostty, I've moved your edit from Diessa Icon to its talk page. --JP 06:04, 26 October 2006 (CDT)

Thanks for moving that... I didn't notice I was on the wrong tab. Lol... I was just so freaked out over the possibility of having 60%+ longer monk enchantments... if I had of kept the OG focus. Frostty1 12:21, 26 October 2006 (CDT)

Brain fart?[]

On the "Editing" pages, I just noticed some formatting buttons above the editing box area. Ummm... were these buttons always there (and I just never noticed them)? Or are they a recent addition? Frostty1 05:45, 23 November 2006 (CST)

Nope always there :) --Xasxas256 06:15, 23 November 2006 (CST)
Ahhh I was just testing you. Yeah yeah, that's the ticket... Heheh... I mean of course I knew it was always there... What kind of dunderpate could miss a helpful gwik function like that? *grins sheepishly* Frostty1 06:27, 23 November 2006 (CST)
If it makes you feel better, I never use them. If you had JS turned off, they probably wouldn't appear. --Fyren 06:35, 23 November 2006 (CST)
I never use them either. I remember a while ago I explained to a user they could type ~~~~ to generate their sig and Gem added that you could use the signature icon on the toolbar and at the time I couldn't work out for the life of me what he was talking about! It also explained to me why everyone writes two hypens before the sig, it was a mystery to me before that! --Xasxas256 06:47, 23 November 2006 (CST)
Edit: Except you Frostty1, you haven't added the two hypens, see this is what happens when you don't use the toolbar, you've ruined the whole system now!! :P --Xasxas256 06:58, 23 November 2006 (CST)

Image missing-16.png Your Sig[]

That's a cool-lookin' image. What's it from?-Auron My Talk 05:34, 27 December 2006 (CST)

I think it's the class icon for the Rogue, from Wizards and Warriors? Image missing-16.png Frostty1 18:35, 6 April 2007 (CDT)
I think your image has to redirect to your userpage or your usertalk, per GW:SIGN. --Shadowcrest 23:30, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, it should. I did it for him. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 23:35, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

How to...[]

I know this isn't my talk page and all, but how do I make a sig image link to my user page? --Aldora 23:51, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

No worries, glad to offer assistance ;-) Go to the page that has your uploaded sig image and edit the page.
  1. If you want the image to be redirected to your user page put, #REDIRECT [[User:Aldora]]
  2. If you want the image to be redirected to your discussion page put, #REDIRECT [[User_talk:Aldora]] Image missing-16.png Frostty1 05:49, 5 December 2007 (UTC)


Thank you very much for taking the time to respond. Your help is appreciated! --Aldora wikisig.jpg--02:46, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Just some pointers about categories[]

Hiya. Keep in mind that categories are by their very nature "lists", so there would be little need for a category to be a sub-category of Lists. Also, take care that you not create a cyclic reference, ie CatA is parent of CatB, who is parent of CatC, who is parent to CatA (A->B->C->A), or have unusual breaks in a category parentage hierarchy.

Welcome Back![]

Boy, you've been away for a while, haven't you? :) ∵Scythe∵ 01:57, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

I definitely had been... so confusing with the switch or whatever to http://guildwars.wikia.com

Signature image help[]

I realize this is ancient history, but I would like to understand what happened.

  • I had an image for my signature for about 15 months, without any issues.
  • Then it was deleted [1] and the reason was "(unatributed image 7+ days)"
  • Is it (or was it) standard procedure to JUST DELETE someone's signature image without notifying them that there is an issue, and giving them an opportunity to resolve the issue?

> Ok, seems me brains is not suffering from complete synaptic degradation... I found the Unattributed image page. It specifically says, "Please notify the image uploader..."

  • Can anyone tell me why no notification was ever put on my talk page?
  • Is it possible to get the image back? Thanks, in advance, if anyone can shed some light/help on this issue. Frostty1  21:10, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
The actual deletion was done in 2008, so I doubt anyone could still remember the specifics. Still, you can just re-upload I think, might have to remove the redirect to the missing image page first though. Tried to restore, but either the wiki hates me or you can't restore images. Probably just the wiki that hates me.--TalkpageEl_Nazgir 21:47, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
The deletion occurred on Wikia, and we didn't bother with transferring deleted images when we moved to Curse. Naz or I can go undelete the image on Wikia, if you want. As to what happened back then... that was before I was made a sysop, so I don't have any clue how they handled things at that time. More than likely it was a massive purge of unattributed images, probably 100+, and the admin who did it didn't check every single one to see if the uploader had been notified properly (and I don't blame him). —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:19, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
Great... Bad news, I'm afraid... -> "Unfortunately, based off the way the image was deleted (with a redirect and suppression), the image is now purged completely from the system and will need to be reuploaded entirely I'm afraid." - sent from a staff member of wikia. Sorry. Ariyen 00:26, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
