Revision as of 04:15, 12 December 2007


The Admin noticeboard

There are a number of issues that can only be solved by an Administrator. The Admin noticeboard is one of the means through which users can contact Administrators in order to identify a problem that needs Administrative attention. Although editors are welcome to directly contact particular Administrators, posting on this page instead may be an easier way to let the entire Administrative group know of the issue (which may be particularly helpful since it increases the odds that at least one Administrator will see, and thus be able to respond to, the issue promptly).

There are only a limited number of things for which this page should be used. Many problems can be solved without Administrative intervention, and, thus, this page should be restricted to those issues that actually require an Administrator. Those are: blocking vandals, (un)deleting pages, (un)protecting pages, removing votes (either as per Real Vetting or because the build has been substantially edited), and mediation (only if the situation demands it).

Even in cases of vandalism, posting on this page needn't be the first step (and indeed should not be the first step). If you see vandalism, just go ahead and revert it, anyone has the power to do so. If it's a new article with no safe version to revert back to, tag it for deletion. In both cases you should leave a message in the talk page of that user to make him/her aware of why that kind of edit is unacceptable on PvXwiki. Only post here if that user persists in his/her actions, ignoring the warnings or if the content requires immediate Administrative attention (eg. if the material on the page is so offensive that should be immediately deleted).

(Be careful in case that user repeatedly insists on vandalizing, avoid a revert war; it's far better to temporarily leave the vandalized version of the page up until an admin has a chance to intervene.)

To create a new request: add an item to the bottom of the list below, providing a brief, neutral summary of the issue. As a sign of courtesy, also leave a message on the talk page of any other involved users so they are aware of this discussion. If you are alerting an admin of a vandal, use the {{IP}} template, with the first parameter being the vandal's IP or username. If you are requesting that vote(s) be removed, please use the {{Build}} template, with the first parameter being the build's name.

General Issues

General issues include (un)deleting pages, (un)protecting pages, banning vandals, and moderating serious disputes. This section may also be used for miscellaneous issues as well as Administrative announcements. See resolved issues here.

Licensing version

See this. Page is protected, so one of you guys needs to fix it. --Wizardboy777 23:48, 21 September 2007 (CEST)

I've been talking to Gcardinal, and we're unsure which is correct, and obviously, we can't fix it until we know which is the problem, so no fix, for the moment. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 00:04, 22 September 2007 (CEST)
I think we have to use version 2.0. We took over quite some content from Guild Wiki, and they use 2.0 with no note on the possibility of silent upgrades. So we have to put at least the pages which originated there under 2.0. Anyway, we should put up a consistent statement asap. – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 20:32, 3 October 2007 (CEST)

PvXwiki:General disclaimer

Link which is located at the very bottom of every page leads to a blank page. Peter 14:18, 28 October 2007 (CET)

Similar builds

These builds are basically the same, but just for different proffesions. There is a guide already made for these and they should not be submitted as they just take up room in the untested-Testing section.

It may be possible to put everything on one page.--AssassinSs HereticAssassin 21:05, 4 November 2007 (CET)

Also try R/Mo Broad Head Arrow Ranger, R/Mo Burning Arrow Ranger and Cripshot while you're at it. I'll address this concern slightly further in Build-Specific Issues. Cedave bad.png cedave (contributions_buildpage) 22:50, 16 November 2007 (CET)

Different usages, can't really be combined to one page.--Victoryisyours Sig Image.jpgVictoryisyours 22:51, 16 November 2007 (CET)
Yeah, I was going to say....if they had the same usage, then I would agree, but all three of those Ranger builds have totally different usages. But, I have noticed a lot of similar builds going around. At one time, I believe we had 5-6 WoH monk builds around. Two were basic, one was using assassin secondary with Return, one was warrior secondary for Shield Bash or Balanced Stance, then you had your Channeling one, and your Gole one. I know some got deleted, but I noticed even more in trial/testing earlier. Would those qualify as similar builds and be merged? - Lord Xivor 22:55, 16 November 2007 (CET)
All should be merged with Build:Mo/any WoH Monk imo.--Victoryisyours Sig Image.jpgVictoryisyours 22:57, 16 November 2007 (CET)
Well, unfortunately for the wiki's sanity, PvX:MERGE, or some other policy that dictated how extremely similar builds should be handled, not really sure, didn't pass, as far as I can remember, and confining builds such as those to guides would be utterly horrible, both sarcastically and realistically considering we don't have any real quick links to guides, or at least that I, as a relatively normal user am aware of. Also, I'd like to add Build:R/Mo Prepared Shot Ranger, Build:R/Mo Magebane Shot Ranger, and Build:R/Mo Melandru's Archer to that list. Cedave bad.png cedave (contributions_buildpage) 23:01, 16 November 2007 (CET)

Well looks like this issue is all rapped up. Ty admins. So, should I now delete this from the page?- Jak123X 00:48, 5 December 2007 (CET) (talk · contribs · logs · check user · block user · block log)

I have a stalker-vandal. Might want to perma-ban? I'm taking care of it my own way, anyway. Cedave bad.png cedave (contributions_buildpage) 06:18, 7 December 2007 (CET)

Taken care of. Although, you shouldn't threaten someone like that. Two wrongs don't make a right etc etc. If he felt like it, he could possiby find some legal action to take because of the threats against his property. Of course, you may be able to do the same with his continual harassment of you online. I don't want to think too heavily on it, and I don't tihnk either of you two should either. - Kowal.jpg Krowman {{sysop}} 06:27, 7 December 2007 (CET)
It was never a threat. Plus, text on a wiki is considered non-viable evidence, anyway. I'll play nice though. I didn't check this before replying on his page again. I'll kill-9 my meanness. Just a bad idea to piss me off when I just got off work. Cedave bad.png cedave (contributions_buildpage) 06:38, 7 December 2007 (CET)

Perhaps i'm a bit biased due to the fact that I'm easily annoyed by idiocy(unless i'm being the idiot ofc), but this guy simply does not vote right. Nearly every vote I've read of his is a question asking about the build. "Where can i use it, What goes in the optional slot, Why use X skill" and the rating never corresponds to the apparant vote(since you can't really tell his oppinion of the build anyway). I attempted to bring to this attention and got a response along the lines of "i've been told, calm down." From what i've seen, this hasn't stopped. Considering he's been told mutliple times by admins, bcrats, and users and has continually demonstrated ineptitude in voting, is there something to be done? Linkage can be provided, but as shogunshen said, they are pretty abundant.Bob fregman 03:53, 11 December 2007 (CET)

Yes. I deleted it about a week ago because it was in grace expired. It was a joke. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 01:47, 10 December 2007 (CET)
The reason for posting it was because a top guild ran it in one battle as a joke, and, for a day or so, it became meta. 02:07, 10 December 2007 (CET)
That was a joke, not a build that has been standard fare in every non-gimmick GvG bar since GW's inception. Make better allusions. - Kowal.jpg Krowman {{sysop}} 07:30, 10 December 2007 (CET)

General Coding Issues

Coding refers to any issue or bug that needs to be dealt with by a Server Administrator (Gcardinal or Hhhippo). See resolved issues here. PvXcode related issues have their own section below.

Banned users voting

Teh Uber Pwnzer has informed me that one may rate builds while one's account is banned. This is not good for sockpuppetry. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image.png{{sysop}} 07:36, 15 November 2007 (CET)

Talk pages without main pages

It's pretty hard to find talk pages for deleted builds (you have to cross-reference this with this), and someone isn't very good at remembering to delete the talk pages :P. A special page that lists talks without associated main pages would be great. --Wizardboy777 Sig.jpgWizardboy777(T/C/Sysop) 03:51, 26 October 2007 (CEST)

There have been a total of 0 page views, and 159,288 page edits since the wiki was setup. That comes to 10.03 average edits per page, and 0.00 views per edit. <- Zero page views? Wtf?

Rate Tab

This is directed at gcard or anyone who has coding experience. Is there anyway for you to be able to have the rate tab available while on the discussion tab? It's kinda annoying to go to the build tab again just to rate something after adding to the discussion. --Lost 05:43, 24 August 2007 (CEST)

Checkuser links

I don't know if this is possible, but a Checkuser link next to people's names in Recent Changes and Ratings. Like Scarymonsterclan (Talk | contribs | Checkuser)... that would be nice, it's not to hard to do it now, but sounds like if it's possible it'd be an easy code. ~~ User:Frvwfr2 frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 22:34, 22 September 2007 (CEST)

Yet more ratings stuff....

I was wondering (this may not be possiable at all jsut a thought though) would it be at all possiable to make a template or something where it automaticly updates the catagory it's in (e.g if something was at 4.49 in the good catagory and someone votted and it went to 4.5 or 4.51 to make it great, instead of having to manualy switch it it would automaticly do it.)PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb.jpg 21:22, 29 September 2007 (CEST)

If you're gonna get into dynamic templating... if you put, say, a {{build-stub}} tag on a build, then move the build, the build still appears in Category:Build stubs under the old title, and you have to remove and then put the stub tag in again to get it into the right place. It would be nice if it updated itself. --Wizardboy777 Sig.jpgWizardboy777(T/C) 04:08, 5 October 2007 (CEST)

About links in the skill bars: That's a PvXcode thing, mainly gcardinal's area. I think as a quick solution putting one link on the skill icon and the other on the name should be easy. About GW: and GWW: changing the interwiki link mechanism is major surgery to the engine. Anyway, I'd like to keep the possibility for authors to decide where they want to link. What we could try is making an additional magic word like __GW__ which would then translate into GW: or GWW: depending on the reader's preferences. But I didn't look into the details yet, no idea how much work it would be. – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 10:01, 1 November 2007 (CET)

Rating Page protection

Can we get a way to protect a discussion page? It would be nice when a dispute like the Toucher happens... lock it so that votes can't be removed. ~~ User:Frvwfr2 frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 20:14, 30 October 2007 (CET)

Just to add on to Frvwfr2's comment: in that situation, it should lock the vote page in such a way that votes cannot be removed nor can new votes be added. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2.JPG *Defiant Elements* +talk 03:44, 1 November 2007 (CET)
That too. ~~ User:Frvwfr2 frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 01:31, 4 November 2007 (CET)


Would it be possible to auto-tag Stubs and Trial builds that have been unchanged for 2 weeks, or even automatically enter them into this category? — Rapta Rapta Icon1.gif (talk|contribs) 03:29, 6 November 2007 (CET)

I think this is still being worked on, its not that simple lol. --Peter 10:24, 29 November 2007 (CET)

Build Master Implementation

So, as per general consensus, we're planning on doing a trial run to test out the impact of BMs on PvX. From everything I've been told, it shouldn't be terribly hard to add the code necessary to create a BM category, but, it does have to be done.

Saving Template Codes

Now, when you try to download a template code, the default name is {art_name}.txt
I'm assuming art_name is a variable and stands for article name, but I think you need another bracket or two to get it to work right. --Wizardboy777 Sig.jpgWizardboy777(T/C) 23:27, 9 October 2007 (CEST)

I get this as well, but if you try and load the template on GW it moans it's not valid or something like that.....PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb.jpg 22:45, 25 October 2007 (CEST)

Finally, i have been looking for someone to post this. Will this be addressed or fixed?? Is it a bug or was it changed? I do not get why ALL builds are now named the same...


Skill bar bug

See this image. Stone striker is too high... here's the build page. There's one bracket missing (in the pvxcode), and he has mantra of earth twice, and no attribs, but even when I fix those it still shows up wrong in the preview... Not to mention that image I linked to is bugged, at least for me. It just shows up as a white square with a shadow. Clicking on it shows the right thing, though. Edit: I linked to the actual url, so it's fine. See what I'm talking about with the image bug here --Wizardboy777 Sig.jpgWizardboy777(T/C) 02:25, 16 October 2007 (CEST)

Page and image display fine for me. --Peter 21:03, 16 October 2007 (CEST)
Weird...Probably because you're using IE. :D Lord Belar 21:05, 16 October 2007 (CEST)
I figured out what the problem is. If you put spaces between the skills (like [Stoneflesh Aura] [Obsidian Flesh] instead of [Stoneflesh Aura][Obsidian Flesh]) the 'split' occurs wherever the first space is. --Wizardboy777 Sig.jpgWizardboy777(T/C) 04:22, 19 October 2007 (CEST)
I had a half image few days ago, it was a paragon skill as I can remember. --AssassinSs HereticAssassin 21:04, 4 November 2007 (CET)

Skill nerfs

I've noticed a number of skills that have been nerfed but not rectified to show this on PVX Wiki. Is there anyway normal users can help with making the changes needed? Or is that strictly down to Admins? Unreal Havoc 23:26, 27 October 2007 (CEST)

It's a matter of getting BBCode updated, not of getting PvXWiki updated. So... no. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2.JPG *Defiant Elements* +talk 01:19, 28 October 2007 (CEST)
So basically, you can't help. ~~ User:Frvwfr2 frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 02:54, 28 October 2007 (CEST)

On tooltips for chants and shouts, Paragon energy gain from Leadership is displayed on some skills and not others, and sometimes overwrites energy cost. Just look at any shouter page. - Ayumbhara Ayumsig.jpg 20:11, 1 November 2007 (CET)


I've noticed on the current Build:Me/any_Frustrated_Interrupter that when you move your mouse over power spike, it displays it as Domination Magic 16, while the template only states 16 in illusion and 13 in fast casting. Does PvXCode use the signet of illusions? It does the same for the other inspiration magic or domination magic skills of the build, yet it does not do it for the fast casting one. Is this normal behaviour? FlyingBadger 13:50, 9 November 2007 (CET)

If you put @X in front of a skill in the pvxcode, it shows the skill at X level. — Tycn (talk*pvxcontribs) 14:06, 9 November 2007 (CET)

Thats rather random.... What browser are you running-and do you hvae like any ad or script blockers maybe? (that sometimes buggers things up)PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb.jpg 13:17, 18 November 2007 (CET)

I'm guessing some ad interdicted when you tried to pull up the picture. If it appears again, just Adblock it. -- 08:01, 19 November 2007 (CET)

Seed of Life

Seed of life doesn't seem to be effected by @xx. see here SoL is set @7 (at rank 7 as indicated in the note section) this should make it last 4 seconds, however it still says it lasts 1...5 seconds. PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb.jpg 23:15, 21 November 2007 (CET)

That's true of all title-track skills I believe. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2.JPG *Defiant Elements* +talk 23:54, 21 November 2007 (CET)
Not all-i think on the main page there's something down near the bottom about it and it has something to do with the asura title track where @xx works.PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb.jpg 23:07, 22 November 2007 (CET)


I don't know really what the cause of this is, but when I'm on my PSP online, I can't click on the link to get to my user page, or any of the buttons on the navigation bar.

Lolu go to this site with your PSP? That's rly funny xD. I don't know the solution tho, sorry. Image-Dark Morphon's Siggie.jpgDark Morphon(contribs) 16:04, 30 November 2007 (CET)

switch skin to simple — Skakid9090 01:05, 1 December 2007 (CET)

I use the default skin on my psp, is that the problem? Because the link to my user page and the navigation bar or on the top and left side, not the bottom.--ViYsig5.jpgVictoryisyours (talk/pvxcontribs) 18:17, 1 December 2007 (CET)
I would try going to the simple skin... That is what I did and things run a lot quicker when online... Some of the pages take a very long time to load but you have to expect it on a PSP Joshgt2Charge!.jpg Joshgt2 (Talk) 07:48, 8 December 2007 (CET)

My screwed up page

I cant screen(qq fucking school computers), but the <<left toolbar, including ads, vanishes on my talk. in addition, all non article talk(links to my contributions, my tool bar) becomes smaller. could be (i.e. probably is) a local problem. i'll try to screen tonight.Dark0805sig2.PNG 16:44, 26 November 2007 (CET)

That's a bug. Usually happens when someone leaves a formatting tag open. I'll try to fix it. --Wizardboy777 Sig.jpgWizardboy777(T/C/Sysop) 00:09, 27 November 2007 (CET)
Fixed. It was because you had the userbox template on the same line as a : (to indent), and they don't like that. --Wizardboy777 Sig.jpgWizardboy777(T/C/Sysop) 00:13, 27 November 2007 (CET)
Hmmm, thanks a lot, and is it terribly good to allow a static page to be formatted by tags that have nothing to do with it? Not gud.Dark0805sig2.PNG 14:27, 27 November 2007 (CET)


Look into the raw text, you will see i made a link to the great builds category and it did not show up. at all.Dark0805sig2.PNG 14:37, 27 November 2007 (CET)

fixed, apparently [[Category]] links require a ":" in front. thanks, yo ich!Dark0805sig2.PNG 14:43, 27 November 2007 (CET)
you're welcome. :) a cat link without colon will put the page into that cat, a link with colon will display the link, it's just the same with images: without colon will display the image, with colon will display a link to it. - Y0_ich_halt 14:46, 27 November 2007 (CET)

Cool idea i think

Could we maybe get a bar sayin like Crit rate and DPS on weapon based builds? like for a warr have Crit rate based on wep mastery, and a DPS based on wep attribute. Mehbe not worth it, but useful nonetheless. ~~ User:Frvwfr2 frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 02:22, 10 December 2007 (CET)

Would it be like base DPS? I dunno how useful that might be in some builds. Shogunshen Sig.jpg Shen(contribs) 02:38, 10 December 2007 (CET)
True... Maybe just crit hit chance then, but that has negligible use except for on Sins, but then they use a lot of crit increasing skills too. Maybe just forget it. ~~ User:Frvwfr2 frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 02:42, 10 December 2007 (CET)
I think that would be quite kool, but then you have to think of how to get it only on rangers/warriors/ass. etc. and not jsut casters with a wand -.-. also on the idea of adding things-equipment template code(s) maybe? would mean we don't have to just list it....i think (would have to for PvE builds i guess....)PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb.jpg 21:16, 11 December 2007 (CET)
