Taking a month off

My life has been crazy. I'm being moved to another city for work and my dad just died, so I'm going to take a month off. If someone wouldn't mind fixing my status on the admin page to semi-active, that would help me a lot.

Thanks, guys. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 17:49, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Oh wow. Take care Jon =/ <3! And when you see the moon remember that I see it too! And when you see the sun, remember that the billion timezones between us mean nothing. Fuck, that doesn't even resemble a rhyme.
What the shit, good luck! --DANDY ^_^ -- 18:36, September 14, 2010 (UTC):
Fuck, that's awful. Hang in there KJ :(--TahiriVeila 19:50, September 14, 2010 (UTC)
Keep in touch! You know how to get a hold of me, I think. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. Daññy 21:24, September 14, 2010 (UTC)
Good luck, /wave.--Pirate 21:25, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

Skill Update Delayed

The skill update is being delayed so the Live Team can add characters and builds to the Costume Brawl. So, looks like it'll be another month before we see an update.

Oh, and I'm still on hiatus. I've just had random bits of downtime, and I needed something to bitch about :D Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 18:39, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Wait james phinney is gone now too?--TahiriVeila 22:18, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
Oh ROFL he vbailed on Anet to design a zombie game. Guess even the designers know the ship is going down xD--TahiriVeila 22:19, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
Makes sense. He was the last (only?) bit of talent on the GW team. Daññy 00:24, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
Lol, so wtf were they doing the last 2 4 months? Life Guardian 22:24, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
fixed, The fact that the lead designer left implies to me that we won't see any significant changes before christmas--TahiriVeila 22:28, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
"As for Heroes, we’re looking at having that happen in the next major build after all of the Keiran/Gwen content". Lol. Just lol. Also, KJ, you hinted at the dervish leak and i never actually saw it. Share plox. Life Guardian 22:32, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
I haven't found anything solid. I know several people who've seen it, but it must be from a butt-hurt TK'er, because no one has copies. If I find the notes, I'll let you know.
But, before you ask, it's not even producible content. It's just ideas....they have done zero work on the skill update. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 22:39, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
To give myself credit, the TK itself does enough work. People test content and give ideas all the time. It's just that ANet ignores it, does stupid shit with it, misinterprets it or simply decides that not doing anything for 6 months is a cool idea. -Auron 00:59, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
I'm not suggesting that the TK is lazy. Obviously, they volunteered for the job and want to do it. It's the Live Team who isn't doing shit. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 01:41, 21 September 2010 (UTC)
My impression was that the majority of the TK was simply retarded, not lazy. (And we all know, retards like to shout and the retards in charge like to listen to whoever's loudest.) Daññy 03:10, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
Use wik characters, copy paste some different wiki builds from last time, add a bunch of self heals and ims, and reuse the same maps. Then they could actually move on to something more important than trying to balance a 5 man ra.--Relyk talk 01:07, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
The progression of Costume Brawl has been: Rangers carry teams -> Sins carry teams. My money's on Mesmers this year. (Or Rangers if the Mesmer bar is amazingly horrible.) Daññy 03:13, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
i carried teams on mesmer the first year of costume brawl. it was surprisingly fun :> — Maf so rational. 04:59, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
sins always carry teams--Relyk talk 05:01, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
weren't we running dual mesmer and ranger/mesmer a lot of that year? i know i've almost always opted to run them just because they can spec everything. (sins were especially fun to SoClumsiness and IoP to oblivion.) Daññy 05:26, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
do not remember, i am talking about the very first year. where mesmers had basically an old esurge bar with complicate and some other funny stuff, where you could shatter off the assassin's aura of displacement the second they teleported in for lulz and super effectiveness. — Maf so rational. 05:30, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
well, i remember running 5assassin with you and panic and frosty and someone else maybe? when we realized that assassins lolganked everything. — Maf so rational. 05:32, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
c. that was this past year (when i was running a mesmer whenever possible). the year before i was running a MShot ranger with some people - figured you were involved. Daññy 06:53, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
Did I do that with you guys? I was syncing assassins with someone last year... Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 14:04, 21 September 2010 (UTC)
Perhaps. I remember doing it with Panic and Frosty at least. WHO WANTS TO PLAY THE BUSH GAME? Daññy 17:02, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
I remember running 5 sins with nick and borat and getting 172 consec last year, rofl--TahiriVeila 22:33, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Indeed, good sir! Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 17:24, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
I should elaborate. I would do her proudly and vigorously. I was on the way out when I left the original comment. Daññy 18:47, September 23, 2010 (UTC)
She looks yummy. KJ, you sir have a delicious taste in women! Vincent Evan [Air Henchman] Vincels.jpg 18:54, September 23, 2010 (UTC)
Apparently she's freaking badass too. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 18:57, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
Maybe she is passively badass. That picture makes her look quite promiscuous. On a different note, how have you been KJ? :D Vincent Evan [Air Henchman] Vincels.jpg 19:02, September 23, 2010 (UTC)
Meh, ok. I've got a lot of shit going on :o Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 19:11, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Casual PvP guild

If anyone is interested in joining a very casual PvP guild, I just started leading my ally's new guild.

We'll probably just zcombat, sync codex, lol@AB, and suck at HA/GvG. Mics and experience not required at all.

Oh, and I may need some officers. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 20:56, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes (IGN:Toraen Nakure). Expect many horribly-timed disconnects and horrible monking in general though! Toraen 23:26, September 24, 2010 (UTC)
Pfft, I don't care. I'll invite you today or tomorrow. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 03:05, 25 September 2010 (UTC)
Lol I suck normally, but now I also haven't played in ages. I'm prolly available on weekends tho. --DANDY ^_^ -- 20:35, September 25, 2010 (UTC)
You still have the same ign? Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 22:55, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Oh right. Invite me on Dandybot So Hot. You may also promote me but the only thing I'd ever do to deserve it is.. is.. maybe seem nice? Oh and tell mean people to shut up! --DANDY ^_^ -- 11:25, September 26, 2010 (UTC)
Personally, I totally think Dandy definitely deserves officer based solely on the quality of the nudes I've seen. Daññy 11:57, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

Why'd you all leave the base :P Toraen 22:56, September 25, 2010 (UTC)

Remotely Accessing Guild Wars

Does anyone know a decent VPN or something similar that could help me access Guild Wars remotely? LogMeIn can't force the frame rate for me to even see the game. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 02:31, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Ill ask danny. he seems to think he knows everything. jk XD but ya, sent him an im, i'll tell him to reply here if he knows. Akio_Katsuragi Akio Katsuragi Sig2.jpg 06:51, September 29, 2010 (UTC)
only remote stuff i know is using ssh -X on linux, if you want to bother with WINE etc. framerate is highly dependent on your resolution and internet speed ofc. — Maf so rational. 17:29, September 29, 2010 (UTC)
The computer I need to access doesn't run linux. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 17:34, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
What you want is have PC A run Guild Wars and send a video feed of it to PC B, and have PC B control the GW client on PC A? Try something like netmeeting (dunno what's current, but since that's by microsoft, it might be able to handle directX efficiently). You might get a reasonable frame rate if the sending machine doesn't wait for confirmation upon sneding video frames, but if it does, your frame rate will be limited by the lag.
If I were you, I'd consider running GW off PC B and routing the server connection through PC A; all that needs is a router software on PC A (or having its router configured nicely), and some entries in etc/hosts on PC B with maybe a modified routing table. --◄mendel► 17:52, September 29, 2010 (UTC)

Wikia's staff are getting pissed

Check out the blogs. Sannse and Susan have flamed a few guys. I don't blame them, but lulz. Bad choice. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 01:28, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Also, mendel is raping the blogs with posts about the click tracking ads. It's hilarious. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 01:34, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
Your post is hilarious too--Relyk not@Wikia 09:35, October 5, 2010 (UTC)

Precise link please :< I found some blogs by Sannse but nothing hilarious. --DANDY ^_^ -- 10:07, October 5, 2010 (UTC)
Check all of them and the AWA page. And I've been bullshitting in basically all of my posts. I'm just trying to scare them. Apparently, it worked, because Sannse was checking into copyright shit (or at least was talking about it on IRC). Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 14:05, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Absurdapedia just left. That means almost half of the top 20 wikia sites have either left or dedicated to leave. Oshi- Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 02:50, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

It makes me love when people try and fuck with the internet. skakid9090 02:54, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
The response is always lulzy. I'm sure wikia will be fine. They'll just restaff all of those wikis and try to keep the site traffic. But still....way to fight the tide (I guess). Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 02:56, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
re-staff with what people?--Relyk not@Wikia 05:20, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
With whoever wanted to. All a person has to do is request that they be made an admin after we leave and they'll get it. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 13:55, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

comments of/about wikia

tone down the hostility. You're being a giant ass. They're not saying "no you can't leave we own your souls" or any of that shit, they've respected our wishes, and those of any other users/wiki's that wish to leave. They obviously won't take the site down because there will be users who wish to stay here, and that's fine too, it's their choice.

Yes, they're forcing their new skin on people along with various other changes. That doesn't mean you have the right to act like a dick. Hell, Sannse even commented despite the fact half the users on the page were using their staff tag, and the other half are talking about vandalising the wiki once we leave =/.

[14:50] <@Auron> if you catch KJ on msn or something
[14:50] <@Auron> tell him to stop being such a huge cunt
[14:50] <@Auron> to sansse/wikia
[14:51] <@Auron> they're jews sure but that's ridiculous

That's all. ~ PheNaxKian talk 14:40, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Haha, fine. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 15:17, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
P.S. I had already stopped. My last comment on anything was last night or something. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 15:22, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
I think the bigger issue here is that we all know that Wikia's position is "Fuck our service users/content providers, we need more profit." That's the only reason they'd invest money into developing a new skin with ideally located ads, then force that skin on wikis. It wouldn't be viewed so badly here if they'd ever been willing to talk about giving us some sort of DB and source access so we could make updates - especially after it became clear that they had no intentions of assisting us in such a manner.
The talk of vandalisation is similarly in response to the for-profit mentality of Wikia. They've apparently forgotten that we're the source of their content and, therefore, their profit. They've failed to realize that they have to treat us well - you don't want to bite the hand that feeds you, especially if that hand is the hand of a retard volunteering to basically shove money into your pockets.
-- Danny is not  17:03, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, and yes, this is the same attitude Facebook has - but the difference is that Facebook provides a unique, populated service. -- Danny is not  17:05, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
I was surprised sannse posted replies, since we're not one of the bigger wikis. That they'll be able to re-staff all the wikis seems close to impossible as even the most popular wikis are sustained by a small userbase that has existed from the start. They are taking a pretty big risk on alienating the community in order to keep with current trends. It seems to be an ethical decision rather than one of significant business impact for Wikia though. They can say they are aware everyone hates it, but they're not inclined to respond to the communities' wishes.--Relyk not@Wikia 22:19, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
I don't understand why Danny is so pissed about ads. They are all over the place as it is. Are you going to bitch about the Budwiser ad's now that you are of age? The billboards as you drive down the road? No. Because you are use to it. So because of this change you focus on something you can argue. I am more annoyed that they force this skin crappy skin onto you or even take one away. W/E just focus on the main body and ignore the ads imo. However it is a good thing to bitch about. Better when you had a few.--XTREME 23:04, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
It's never just been about ads X. --Toraen 23:08, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
Assuming that I give half a damn about ads completely misses the mark. While I think people have the right to avoid ads if they so desire, that's hardly the issue at hand. Re-read my post a few times before you reply again. -- Danny is not  08:19, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
@ Toraen I know it not about ads but Danny's rant WAS about profit and ads.--XTREME 07:25, October 10, 2010 (UTC)
Danny was talking about greed...--Relyk not@Wikia 08:07, October 10, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for clearing that up.--XTREME 11:37, October 12, 2010 (UTC)


Well, frankly, if you need to deliberately make the new look ugly to prove your point... then it ain't much of a point. -- Sannse (help forum | blog) 05:22, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

Trust me, the new look is hideous enough on its own--TahiriVeila 05:43, October 17, 2010 (UTC)
Sannse, Phen (another admin and I) both discussed the theme and decided that we would really prefer our wiki to stand out and look a little crazy. Therefore, we made the changes we made. I will be re-adjusting the theme again, and if it is reverted I will gain consensus from this wiki (easily, I might add) and then be contacting another staff member to mediate your unwarranted harassment. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 07:04, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Really, those of us that have been contributing to PvX for a long time do not at all appreciate the blatant undermining of the contract between yourselves and GCard. We could, in all honesty, ask for all permissions to be revoked, effectively rendering this wiki useless. If that's how you want to play this, I promise you we will best you in any efforts you attempt to make. Fucking with PvX is synonymous with pissing into an ocean of piss. In case you don't immediately recognize the 4-chan reference, let me put it more simply: you will lose. You do not have the resources to deal with PvX's userbase - you proved this long ago. To put it simply: leave us alone. Don't fuck with us. Be on your merry way. Many of us happily maintain other Wikia wikis. Be glad for it. The fact that PvX is moving? Suck it up and stop shoving your own cocks into your mouths. It's simply in poor taste. I tried to be civil. I, personally, asked for Wikia's opinions. You declined to make any comment. Assuming that silence means consent, as Wikia has so deftly assumed, puts you in the position of "fucked." Unless you consent to our demands, PvX will move and so will our users. It's the nature of a beast that is not tied to formality, but rather intrinsically tied to change. And if you've bothered reading this far, you should go fuck yourself. You shoudld've stopped reading at "4-chan reference." Everyone else here knows that.
Welcome to PvX. Fuck off and die.
