Now optionally supports a style attribute and it outputs a proper table in html instead of using an iframe --Necromancer-icon.png Darth Vader talk contribs 20:00, 31 January 2007 (CET)

tag: sort

Added a new extension that creates a tag to sort lists: <sort>

see Sort

It works like this:


Will produce this:

  • all
  • are
  • base
  • belong
  • to
  • us
  • your


The 377 ({{NUMBEROFARTICLES}}) doesn't update unless something changes in the mainpage. Why's that? Gonzo Icon-Gonzo.png (talk | contribs) 12:09, 1 February 2007 (CET)

I think it does, see my tip on purging cache, maybe if you do that it will update ? You can also check on special:statistics, that should afair always update --Necromancer-icon.png Darth Vader talk contribs 17:56, 2 February 2007 (CET)

What links here

What would be a accurate way to describe this? I wanted to rename it but "Pages that link to this page" is way to long. I only found out about this link recently and I like it! Though if you never press it, you probably won't know what it does. Gonzo Icon-Gonzo.png (talk | contribs) 12:01, 5 February 2007 (CET)

Can you even edit it ? it's in the toolbox menu which is context based (ie. it changes based on what kind of page you are on). And it's a standard mediawiki function so please do not rename it even if you could, since it would confuse the people that are used the mediawiki toolbox. --Necromancer-icon.png Darth Vader talk contribs 12:57, 5 February 2007 (CET)
Ok, won't do it :) You can rename it: [[1]] Gonzo Icon-Gonzo.png (talk | contribs) 13:13, 5 February 2007 (CET)
True, i think that is mostly for localization, ie. for foreign languages, anyway, remember the help pages refer to the default names, so there needs to be a really good reason to rename it ;) --Necromancer-icon.png Darth Vader talk contribs 13:36, 5 February 2007 (CET)

Skill box

Skill details

Make everyone feel warm and welcome, cow style.

Death Magic 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
Level 1 4 6 9 12 15 17 20 23 26 28 31 34 37 39 42 45 47 50

Borrow the skill box template and CSS styling for it from guildwiki


I want to add some links to this page, but where should I add them? What do you think.

  • GuildWars Guru - A site with guides, builds and a discussion forum. Also hosts our guild comic in their activities section.
  • MEEP - Friends and sworn enemies of DotB who seem to have their heart set to get us into the SMS Alliance.

Change the helpful guildwiki links to be a general links box, make a new page called 'miscellaneous links' and put all the links you dont want to appear on the main page there ? --Necromancer-icon.png Darth Vader talk contribs 16:11, 23 February 2007 (CET)

new tag: character_statistics

So i got a bit bored, and inspired by Jens's character statistics on the forums:

CharacterHours playedDeathsDeaths/hXPXP/hXP/deathsVirtual level% hours% deaths% xp

370 Avg. Hours/Character, 1,477,259 Avg. XP/Character, 192 Avg. Deaths/Character

'Virtual level' means the level your character would be if there was no level 20 cap

It works like this:

Zum Garon (Warrior),1231,771,7128151
Doli Capax (Necromancer),950,629,3752886
Zarine De Rippa (Warrior),696,189,1988878

Random Tox (Necromancer),211,34,590465
Zool Zurander (Mesmer),134,105,263842
Zoot Lanfear (Elementalist),132,38,738509
Zoltan Goatpuncher (Ranger),121,3,386907
Zenia Ghola (Ritualist),32,1,144562
Arhev Jezvahted (Monk),31,0,154532

The tag is used like this:

<text>,<hours played>,<deaths>,<xp>

Optionally you can use a 'style' attribute to specify table styling in CSS (see how its done in the guildwars_ladder tag on the front page)

Hard Mode Planner

Can we have a link to this on this Main Page? Will be more visible to everybody. Might also be a good idea to mention it in the Guild Info when we log on to GW... Azone

Yeah, was planning on doing that once the format has been decided and it's finished :D (btw, you can sign your comments on talk pages by adding ~~~~ :D Icon-Gonzo.png Gonzo (talk | contribs) 10:22, 21 September 2007 (CEST)

Behind Life and Death

According to them their tag means life and death, I urge somebody with more japanese knowledge then me to find the middle symbol, this is what Babelfish says Life and Death is (and most google search results). They are the same symbols as in their tag, however their tag has 3. Icon-Gonzo.png Gonzo (talk | stuff) 18:21, 4 December 2007 (CET)

GW1 Namespace added

GW1 namespace has been created. Feel free to move your 'gw1' related stuff under that namespace.

It is done via the 'move' function.

Also you should not leave a redirect in place, since that would just create a page in the Main wiki which redirects to GW1, and thus for GW2 obsolete pages.
