Can't login after move to wikia

Hello, I can't login to my username (thc) for some reason. I tried resetting password, but I don't know what e-mail address it was sent to. --Zaney 18:40, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Try PvX - Thc. That's what we had to do with people who's username was already taken by another wikia user. Adorably shocked mcmonkey sig.png(18:42, 20 February 2009 - )
"There is no user by the name "PvX - Thc". User names are case sensitive. Please check your spelling, or use the link below to create a new user account."
I also reset my password, and don't know where the e-mail was sent. -- 18:50, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
User:PVX-Thc That's your new name. Anyone who had a name that was taken by another wikia user got it reset to something like that. Sorry, man. You can always change to a new name. Adorably shocked mcmonkey sig.png(19:12, 20 February 2009 - )
Oh, and if you want to change your name, go here User talk:Angela/renames Adorably shocked mcmonkey sig.png(19:16, 20 February 2009 - )
How do I check if my username was already taken? Or how do you know that my name was taken? --Zaney 19:52, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
I just looked under the user list in special pages, and Thc no longer existed. So, I looked for PVX-Thc and found it. Someone must have had your name already. If you want to change it or fight to get your old name back, post on that page I linked. Adorably shocked mcmonkey sig.png(19:55, 20 February 2009 - )

Firefox PVX Search Codex not Found

Any recent problems

with builds not showing up where they are posted? I put mine in the testing section, and only 1 actually showed up there, duno why Muffin.jpgPWNAGEMUFFIN crabs 23:46, 11 December 2008 (EST)

what builds in particular, i'll look through the deleted/moved builds...? (also putting a space at the star of your message is the equvilent to <pre>) ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 12:24, 12 December 2008 (EST)
ok i made a build in my userpage, then added testing section template, then moved it to Build: whatever, however it does not show up. I did however find out that after all this u gotta click edit and click save page again to make it show up, kinda wierd and redundant Muffin.jpgPWNAGEMUFFIN crabs 18:19, 12 December 2008 (EST)
If it has something to do with categories, they don't undate instantly. It can take a while, especially on big wikis. 03:27, 15 December 2008 (EST)
it only updates after i click edit and save page without changing anything again. Tried it numerous times, duno why Muffin.jpgPWNAGEMUFFIN crabs 00:55, 16 December 2008 (EST)
Its happening ot me too.*Un*ɖɩđđɭɘş —ɱƈ^Ŗęąḻ^ḻƴƿʃooƿʂ UNREALs heart .gif touch my red link! 21:54, 26 December 2008 (EST)
The null edit resets whatever template you have on the build so the category tag gets fixed. So, if Build:W/Mo Frenzy Healsig Mending is moved to Build:Mo/W Frenzy Monk, it'll still display in the category under W until someone edits it or just does a null edit. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 16:34, 4 January 2009 (EST)

Spawning power Bugged amount

For the builds involving a ritualist with spawning power you seem to be at a fault, spawning power adds 4% duration to weapon spells per point. As an example at level 10 it will add 40% duration if you add this to a weapon spell that has 20 seconds base it will go to 28 not 24. I figure one of your coders has either set it to 2% or somthing.

Yes, it used to be 2%, but the rit buff update changed it to 4%. PvXcode hasn't updated yet, and this problem is noted here. ToraenTheJanitorToraenSig2.png 23:27, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

FC on signets

This barely even matters at all (if at all) but:

<pvxbig> [build prof=Me FastCasting=100][Healing Signet][Antidote Signet][Signet of Lost Souls][Signet of Humility][Signet of Return][RoJ][/build] </pvxbig>

you can see here when fast casting is high on signets the cast time goes onto negative numbers whereas with spells the number stays at 0.0. It really doesn't make a difference to anything but you know :P File:Happiny.jpgMrMetalFLower-...tlk 15:42, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

it also scales kinda awkwardly, like you can see here the longest casting signets have the lowest number (i.e. furthest into negative number) casting times... File:Happiny.jpgMrMetalFLower-...tlk 15:44, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Fast casting scales linearly for signets and follows an exponential model for spells. The behaviour is correct. Misery Cow.pngMisery Says Moo 15:48, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
It's just the whole idea that it's not possible to do something 10 seconds before you've cast it :P OK so it's not possible to get a high enough level for it either but it's just not mathematically sound :P File:Happiny.jpgMrMetalFLower-...tlk 15:51, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
If signets scale linearly and spells scale exponentially it is mathematically sound. With linear scaling you can get under 0, with exponential you cannot. It is expected behavior. Dragnmn talk cont 14:29, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Don't put in gigantic numbers - problem solved. Though, I would be interested in what would happen if you managed to get 34+ FC. It would either assume 0 and be instant cast, or crash the server, I'd imagine. ··· Danny Does Drugs 19:15, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
Right now, the fastest skill activation possible for a signet is just about .11 (.107625) seconds (including cons). The fastest for a spell is .0133875 seconds. ··· Danny Does Drugs 19:29, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

<pvxbig>[Defy Pain@10]</pvxbig>
scaling is borked. there are probably others like it. who has access to the skill database now, anyways? last I knew gcard tried to host it at wikipedia, then it got removed. --Mafaraxas 05:38, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

wikia do.I believe TOR made it so the skills rip descriptions from either GWiki or GWWiki, so some skill descirptions are the PvE version, others are PvP version, and others are a mix. ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 09:24, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
I meant that the green number ought to be changing depending on specified strength; instead it stays in general form (90...258...300) regardless. And is not green. Which leads me to believe that it just has to do with how the numbers were put in; the system is probably recognizing the numbers as a static part of the skill description, rather than a variable part. --Mafaraxas 09:54, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

The "+" symbol in build templates

The "+" does not save in build templates. Instead, it just puts a space in the code, which invalidates it. I'll try to talk to TOR about it. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 20:42, 23 November 2009

Mouse-over Attribute descriptions

Would it be possible to have mousing over an attribute display the in-game description of that attribute? ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 17:48, 9 June 2008 (EDT)

I agree with the idea, surely it could use the same wiki code or whatever as the ratings? When you hover over Innovation it gives you a description of it, surelt it could be done for attributes? /FrosTalk\ 07:59, 11 June 2008 (EDT)
I was thinking about that. It would be nice (especially when calculating things like Expertise and Critical Strikes). --File:GoD Wario Sig.JPG*Wah Wah Wah!* 07:59, 11 June 2008 (EDT)
When you roll the mouse over Palm Strike in a build (with points in Critical Strikes) it does not show the relevant attributes (as if you had not pointed critical strikes in the build) Xiay 08:48, 28 January 2009 (EST)

Why haven't the mouseover descriptions for skills been updated? They've been outdated for ages. Are any admins actually earning their keep here? -Ninjatek 00:23, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Ninjatek. The admins are aware that some of the skills are not perfect, but unfortunately we are not always able to do something about it. Our site having incorrect skill descriptions is a database issue, and one that only Wikia staff can fix. However, you can help us by pointing out skills that still have inaccurate skill descriptions, so we can relay them to the Wikia staff. Thanks. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 00:35, 3 March 2010
They actually have been updated, and the database is synced with the editcopies we have. You will need to perform at least a null edit on builds made before this update, as Wikia caches pages. ToraenTheJanitorToraenSig2.png 00:41, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Health Sacrifice

The fact that health sacrificed doesn't show up in the skill mouseover is kind of annoying. Is there any hope that it will be added? --CJNyfalt 17:35, 9 July 2008 (EDT)

Doesn't work with TNTF, must be something to do with pve skills. Ojamo (>.<(O=(- -Q) 18:06, 8 October 2008 (EDT)
(EC)hmm it might be linked to the PvE rank. even if you put @3 it doesn't change anything (it doesn't even show what the duration should be). Just leave it a while, Hippo or GCard will see this eventually, amd if it's our code they'll fix it. If it's GWBBcode, i've left GCard a message asking him to update to the new version (with their being a new version) hopefully it's been fixed in that version. if not then just tough I guess =p, not much we can do.

Lightbringer Signet

<pvxbig> [Lightbringer Signet] </pvxbig>

Lightbringer Signet

Lightbringer Signet is no longer an elite skill, so why is it still showing up in builds as an elite even after a new version of the file has been uploaded?

It works fine in the mini skill bar. The Black Leach 18:52, April 13, 2010 (UTC)

It's because mini skill bars use the image files hosted on PvX but for pvxbig skill bars the images are kept elsewhere (and we've got a problem with a number of skills, for example, still have the old version of <pvxbig>[[Whirlwind Attack]</pvxbig>. These have been broken for ages. - AthrunFeya Lau bfly.gif - 19:08, April 13, 2010 (UTC)

Linking and linebreaks

<pvxbig>[[Infuse Health][[Blood is Power]</pvxbig>
In the above example, we have two blue texts. Normally, one would think these would be hyperlinks to the appropriate skill pages on guildwiki/guild wars wiki. However, they're not (though clicking on them appears to do something with javascript anyway). It'd be cool if they would link to the official wiki.
There's also a random linebreak in the final appearance even though there isn't in the code. This makes little sense given that normal links don't break lines.

New build pages

I've noticed that a lot of newbs include [[File:Placeholder|right|300px]] when making new build pages. I first assumed that it was included in the preset template (the signet of capture button) but I don't get it when I click it. Where is it coming from? Zyke-Sig.png 00:18, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

i think it appears when you create a page using the Monaco skin, hence it generally being use by a lot of IPs and people who have recently signed up AthrunAthrun dot.pngFeya 07:53, June 21, 2010 (UTC)
it's the Monaco default "New page" template (Monaco is Wikia's custom skin, most PvXer's generally use Monobook (think GWW/GWiki)). As far as I'm aware there's no way to change it. ~ PheNaxKian talk 10:39, June 21, 2010 (UTC)
