We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Skill Descriptions

Theyre still wrong and its kind of annoying. Is there a process to fix them? Edeth 13:37, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

They will get fixed eventually, just give Toraen time to update them.--Relyk 13:44, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
Phen needs to get dev access again to sync the files, but I've already updated our copies. -- Toraen confer 15:56, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
I'm waiting on Curse currently. They're super busy at the moment. It's literally them pushing the repo to dev, me checking nothing blows up with the update and push it live, like 10-15 mins when we get started. ~ PheNaxKian talk 17:42, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

SOPA Blackout

I say we throw up a disclaimer. It affects us ;o — Skakid Rally- kupo!

If you knock something together I have no objection to throwing something up. ~ PheNaxKian talk 17:19, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
ATTENTION: Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. As this would severely impact sites built on user-generated content, PvXwiki is opposed to these bills. See this website for more information on how you can help.
What do you think? — Skakid Rally- kupo!

Changed colours to make it more readable, and slightly re-worded to make it clear this is taking place in The USA. But yeah, it's up if you didn't notice. ~ PheNaxKian talk 18:07, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
<3 thanks. Looks much better — Skakid Rally- kupo!

← Moved from [[Talk:PvX wiki/API]]

Any chance to get API re-enabled for actions such as opensearch? Unliketea 15:40, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

You created this in the wrong place. You should use the community portal talk, or even just make a section on the main page talk (as I've moved this to). We don't make new pages for each issue here. Also, Curse is currently trying to move us to the current version of mediawiki and is sorting out our rate extension (which has some conflicts with it). It's unlikely that other coding issues can be worked on until then. If by opensearch you mean this we do have a plugin. It just can't be added from our site at the moment. -- Toraen confer 16:15, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the link ... I'll take a look at it. When I say opensearch .. it is an action that is defined by the mediawiki software that allows for external sites to query the database and retrieve articles in xml or other formats ... for example I could do a curl request on something like: gwpvx.com/api.php?action=opensearch&format=xml&search=Build:A/any_PvE_Dagger_Spammer to retrieve that article only.
[1] the api never went? ~ PheNaxKian talk 17:16, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Try going to the link I posted above ... that certainly is not what the API specification defines should be returned. Unliketea 06:39, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

PvP Section's dead

And the PvE section is flooded by untested builds. Now I can officially say the PvXwiki IS DEAD! Silen† 08:18, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Unban minion provided that he tests all untested pve builds:). Sjan 08:53, 26 June 2012 (UTC)
This is how it's been for about the past year or two. Nothing has changed except the amount of drama in the PvE section. jī·gō·dǔ - 12:44, 26 Jun 2012 (UTC)

Guild Wars 2

Any decision on whether or not there needs to be a PvX2 yet? Danny 06:34, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

I can't find the exact bit.. but somewhere other than this there was a link to a site which wasn't wiki based + had effectively already taken the place of pvx2. (and was already being used.. just there weren't any talk pages to banter on.) Cɥıǝɟʇɐıu Alǝx 14:12, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
It was linked here. It's more of a place to share the builds you use rather than a place to document the meta (does the PvP in GW2 justify a meta doc site though?). -- Toraen confer 16:13, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
I haven't actually played GW2, so I'm certainly not going to be able to answer that question. Might be worth polling for opinions, though, from people who do play. Hopefully some of those people have this page watched. Danny 15:41, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
It's really fucking hard to document the meta because you can't see what anyone else is running any more. Panic was bitching hard last night because everyone he was encountering had "bullshit invulnerable builds" and he didn't know why. He was even playing the same class sometimes :> A new misery 08:16, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
There's already various sites for builds (can't find the one I normaly see people linking to because I don't really care), so I'm inclined to say there's no need for a PvX2, especially considering it'd require someone to code the back end (not difficult, just horribly time consuming). However if Danny/anyone else who can program is board by all means go for it. ~ PheNaxKian talk 09:13, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
I'd have to probably play the game to know what the site would need, but it should be trivial to code something. The bigger issue is: how do we document the meta? Is it even possible to do so? I'm not going to build some shitty build storage site since there seem to be plenty. If we can get some solid, meta builds I'd be happy to build out a quick site. Danny 05:51, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
See my previous comment. The closest you could get to finding out the meta is asking tournament players what build they used. There is no obs mode, so you can't watch yet as far as I know and you can't see skill activation even if you could or what traits they have slotted, although you might be able to guess in some cases, such as if opponents always catch on fire whenever a guardian blocks something. The closest you could probably come to meta storage would be "They ran 2 guardians with shield/mace and hammer, 2 mesmers with greatswords and staves and a warrior with mace/axe and a rifle." That doesn't really seem worthy of a website. A new misery 07:58, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
An update: The previously mentioned and linked build database is fucking terrible. A new misery 11:14, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

What is anyone's IGN on gw2 if they are playing? Add Rawr plays War, im on FS. Rawr 15:28, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
