The move

Hi everyone. Thank you all for your comments over the last couple of days. It has given Gcardinal and Wikia some good ideas about making sure this move goes smoothly. We have taken on board the need to make sure the skin is good for you all. As I've said above, it is very modifiable, so I'm sure we can work together to create something that will both keep current editors happy and also inspire new users to join PvXwiki.

We are going to lock this wiki for a few hours now so that a final and up-to-date copy of the databases can be provided to Wikia. The new site will be ready and editable at pvx.wikia.com as soon as possible. pvxwiki.com will be redirected to make sure that no links or bookmarks are broken.

If you want to ask me anything while the wiki is locked, please email me (angela@wikia.com) or ping me on Skype (beesley) or Google talk (beesley at gmail).

I hope to see you all soon in PvXwiki's new home!

Angela 06:53, 19 February 2009 (EST)


good to edit now? my watchlist is screwed btw :< --The preceding trolling attempt was made by Chaos (talk) . 15:38, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Eh, I think all watchlists will get wiped. I know mine did when GWiki merged. Zefirsig.jpgGod Zefir 16:06, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Damn, need to stalk RC so much more then. Good I don't have any fail builds at work now :3 --The preceding trolling attempt was made by Chaos (talk) . 16:11, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
That wasn't expected - we're looking at this now. Angela (talk) 22:33, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
This is late, but mine is back. Zefirsig.jpgGod Zefir 23:15, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Everyones got wiped through the move. I'd just go through rewatching them. --☭Guild*talk* 20:36, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
I got to keep mine, maybe because I had a wikia account. ---Chaos- 20:45, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Logging in

We are here, as you can see User:Frostels is still not working but I am sure it is being looked at (as well as the other people who wanted to keep their names), also, the ratings pages (as well as Recent Ratings) are pretty bugged Frosty 22:18, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

The renames will happen soon, but you may need to log in temporarily as PvX-YourOldName. Angela (talk) 22:33, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Ups there we go, ty! Frostrage.jpgFrosty po! 22:35, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

I am Jujin on PvX, but it won't let me sign in. I tried PvX-Jujin as my username but that is not a viable account, according to the error message. This is my Guildwiki (wikia) account. Just a note, when I try to log in with just Jujin as my username, it says the account exists but that my password is incorrect. I apologize ahead of time if this is not the right talk page, but hey. ~ ProblematicPlumHex Eater Vortex.jpg 03:15, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

I've emailed you a new password. Let me know if it doesn't work. Angela (talk) 03:24, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, it works like a charm! At first I i had my doubts about the move to Wikia, but now I'm sure this community can only thrive with such an amazing support team (if you don't mind me calling you guys that ^ ^) ~ JujipooJujinicon.jpg just may eat you 04:40, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. :) Angela (talk) 05:55, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Username changes

If I was wanting to change my username in the move, how would I go about that? Just do the old thing where I make a new account and get the old one Perma'd? --Tai Sig.png 23:17, 19 February 2009

I think if you ask politely, you can get your old contribs moved to a new name Frostrage.jpgFrosty po! 23:20, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
orly? cool. I'll think up a new name and write a nice polite letter then. --Tai Sig.png 23:21, 19 February 2009
Please leave a message on this page as soon as possible since renames aren't a usual feature, but just something we do during moves. Of course, the normal way of just getting a new account is always an easier option. Angela (talk) 23:24, 19 February 2009 (UTC)


moved from User talk:Angela/renames

Sup, looks like all of my ratings are showing up as some user by the name of kristus now, is this pro?--Goldenstar 00:01, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Looks like all ratings are from random names. I have none and every rating I've seen is credited to some redname whoru. --71.229 00:03, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
definitely pro then--Goldenstar 00:04, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
I am "Anderslash" apparently --Tai Sig.png 00:05, 20 February 2009
We're looking into this now. It's taking the User ID instead of Username. So, Tai was the 3233rd user on pvxwiki but Anderslash was the 3233rd user on Wikia. It should get fixed soon. Angela (talk) 00:14, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Can't we have a complete wipe of the ratings history? It'd go along with the "new start" theme, would encourage new member participation,... Goodnight la sig 2.png 00:07, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Can you propose that to the community please? Not enough people will see it here and it would need some discussion first. Angela (talk) 00:14, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
This is now at Talk:Main Page#Ratings Wipe.
It's just a naming issue it is probably being sorted out while we speak. Frostrage.jpgFrosty po! 00:10, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Strange ratings

On any rating page, the usernames of people who rated are completely inaccurate and random. Any reason for this? Jebuspachi-1-1.jpgMcPachirisu 23:50, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

on a similar note, looking in Recent ratings i saw:
    *  21:30 . . Team - Ooze Pit HM; Rating: 5 (great) . . E:5 U:5 I:0 . . 

    * 21:18 . . R/W Magebane Turret; Rating: 2.8 (acceptable) . . E:3 U:2 I:5 . . 

    * 18:33 . . R/W Magebane Turret; Rating: 2 (trash) . . E:2 U:2 I:0 . . 

    * 18:33 . . Team - HA Mesway; Rating: 1 (trash) . . E:1 U:1 I:5 . . 

    * 18:15 . . Team - HA Mesway; Rating: 1 (trash) . . E:1 U:1 I:0 . . 

    * 16:21 . . R/D Serpent's Vow; Rating: 5 (great) . . E:5 U:5 I:0 . . 

note the lack of usernames ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 00:29, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

You should have already noticed that ska is now someone called Jlprado, goldenstar is now kristus. I am called Z'Drack, btw. Luckily, it only applies to ratings, now.PikaFan 00:32, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Its a naming issue (notice how some of the users names are popping back up) on the lines of rating, The ratings pages (for builds) are very bugged with just general mucked up templates and such, this will be a challange for TOR! Frostrage.jpgFrosty po! 00:33, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Sorry for the problem. This will be fixed tomorrow. We know what's causing it. Angela (talk) 00:40, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Was restricted to the Build namespace before the move, but now loads non-build pages as well. --Ojmo 04:25, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

I've fixed that. Do you want the article count (2,388) and the default namespaces that are searched to only include build pages as well? Angela (talk) 05:55, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
THat would probably be best, but doesn't really matter. And in the Monaco skins, or whichever ones have the "top content" bar on the side, that also needs to be restricted to Build namespace. ~~     Frvwfr2   Frv Boston.jpg  talk    admin   11:29, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
I'll find out if that's possible. Angela (talk) 13:47, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Setting builds to be the only namespace that affects special:random and the stats doesn't have any effect on the monaco menu. However, an admin can edit MediaWiki:Most popular articles and MediaWiki:Monaco-sidebar to manually change the "editor's pick" section and to remove the other sections. Angela (talk) 02:13, 21 February 2009 (UTC)


Is gone. Toraen (Talk/Contrib) 06:31, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

more bugs?

I've noticed that i'm unable to set a ban time of infinate (may not be a bug as such, but still kinda important). Auron's also informed me that he's having issues changing a users user group (he says it varies from person to person, but he can't add (and in some cases remove) BM, checkuser or bot from people generally). While the first issue isn't major, i'd say the second one is quite important :/ ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 12:28, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Hmm, odd. Gwiki lets me perma. --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 12:39, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Do you see the box saying "Other time:"? You can type infinite or indefinite in there. Or 99 years or pretty much any period of time. Angela (talk) 13:47, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Ah, i wasn't aware i could use indefinite (infinite comes up as an invalid time length). Do you hvae any idea why Auron's (our wiki side BCrat) is having issues changing people's usergroups? ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 14:11, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
No, sorry I wasn't aware there was a problem there. What sort of issues? Angela (talk) 15:38, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
For the infinite bans, you can also add ",infinite:infinite" to MediaWiki:Ipboptions. As for usergroups, if I recall GuildWiki had the same issues with usergroups when they merged with wikia. --GW-Shadowphoenix 14:28, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks SP, that worked =p. ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 14:33, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

More rating nonsense

On ratings pages for builds, the votes are all set to this time 13:34, 20 Feb 2009 (EST), this probably happened during the fix to the ratings pages, would have been good if it was 13:37 though :D Frostrage.jpgFrosty po! 14:32, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Recent ratings is still broke :/ (user names aren't showing, and when removing it still shows the wrong name...) ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 14:34, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
I think she said she'll fix it tomorrow. If Phen is the first person on PvX and he rates a build, all his votes will be showed as made by the first guy on Wikia. Same with 2nd etc... --The preceding trolling attempt was made by Chaos (stalk) . 14:37, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Downloading Builds

For some reason I can no longer download builds from the site, I have tried a few times on a couple builds and it gives me a 404 Error. --GW-Shadowphoenix 15:23, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Happens to me too. Until then you can just copy the code and save them as notepads =/ --The preceding trolling attempt was made by Chaos (stalk) . 15:26, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

spam filter

I was gonna add {{TOCright}} to the top of Anonimous.'s usertalk (since he doesn't want to archive) and I hit the spam filter... Left me kinda wtf. ---Chaos- 16:12, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Weird. It's because of the line of dots already on the page, not because of the template. I'll find out about removing that from the blacklist. If you want to edit just the top, you should be able to do that using this link. Angela (talk) 16:22, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
It's caused by the SpamRegex Extension which has now been temporarily disabled here until we've sorted this out. Angela (talk) 02:07, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Some updates

  1. Ratings should be showing the correct username now - could someone please confirm that they look ok?
  2. Pages with GuildWiki: can now be accessed again.
  3. More renames have been done, and more will happen later today.
  4. TOR is working on the bugs listed at the top of this page.
Angela (talk) 16:20, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Names of raters in ratings are correct, but names of removers in removed ratings are incorrect --Ojmo 16:24, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
This is fixed now. Angela (talk) 02:54, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Lots of Pvx-oldname votes, I presume that will work once the names have been fixed? Andy 16:28, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Some will be fixed (like yours), but users who haven't edited here for a long time will keep the pvx in their name since another user on Wikia that is currently active has the same name. Angela (talk) 16:37, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Ratings look alright, although it's weird to look at with the redlink PVX names. Also, Recent Ratings doesn't show any names. ---Chaos- 18:07, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
I expect the userpages will be moved to match the new usernames once the renaming process is complete. Angela (talk) 02:13, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Some minor issues that annoy me

  1. Whenever I vote I need to refresh the page to see my rating. Usually it updated by itself.
  2. Whenever I've edited a page/clicked Preview etc, if I go back there is this dumb window that asks if I want to resend it. Not happened before.
  3. Vote dates are screwed up, doesn't matter much.

Could the second one be fixed somewhere in my Firefox settings? I realize these issues really don't matter much but fixing them would make my life more pleasant =/ ---Chaos- 21:22, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

I mentioned I use FF. ---Chaos- 21:33, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
So it seems. Anyways, I'm using FF too, and the only thing I changed in settings was the homepage. Flicked through the settings menu, and couldn't find anything related to it. --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 22:09, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
It's the normal behavior.
If you edit, preview, go to another page, comme back in history to the preview, it's normal that you need to ressend the data; all forums and all sites in php works like that. — TulipVorlax 01:30, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Hmmh. Damn. Hasn't happened to me before, but okie, I'll live with it. I'm prolly just imagining because so much has been screwed up here so far. ---Chaos- 10:34, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Will the favicon be restored ?

As far as i remember, it looked like this : [1] (this image is on my own hosting but this one is not the original and is of somewhat inferior quality). — TulipVorlax 03:42, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

I've uploaded it here. You should see it soon if you don't already (sometimes browsers cache these icons longer than they should). Angela (talk) 12:55, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

About #5 on the list

I dont know it they have fixed something yet but Special:ListUsers/sysop work in Firefox but still not in IE. — TulipVorlax 17:43, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

(EC)Uh, just a wild guess. The whole build isn't in the build namespace (Rate/Build:Example Build as opposed to Build:Example_Build&action=rate), so it's not even supposed to have a rating page. If you want to go to the rating for unexistant build pages then [2] is your place, but I can't figure out how to link to it. If you want the link to work then you need to create the build page I think. But that's kinda late after the EC. ---Chaos- 20:29, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Things to add

Can we add "make the Guide: namespace" to the list? — Rapta (talk|contribs) 17:45, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

I can add that. I'll wait a bit to check there are no objections. Angela (talk) 01:27, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
That namespace now exists. Angela (talk) 22:48, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

A very picky observation but

Would it be possible to move PvXDecode to the Toolbox area, I am like a bot when it comes to hitting Recent Ratings and Recent Changes and now I hit the wrong one everytime, I am pretty sure other people are doing to same, or am I just bad :| Frostrage.jpgFrosty po! 17:56, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

We've just moved the wiki to the latest version of the MediaWiki preprocessor (which converts the text you enter in the edit box into the formatted text on the article page). This should help with performance, particularly on large and code-heavy pages.

The new code has a few differences from the old version, so switching over is likely to cause some pages to show errors - in particular pages with very complex templates and formatting, and pages that contain faulty HTML. We've been looking for these pages and making changes as needed, so hopefully affected pages will be few. But if you see anything and need help fixing HTML or templates please let us know. -- sannse (talk) 16:08, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Hmm.. It looks screwed when I want to compare two revisions. Colors gone etc. --Chaos sig 3.png 17:12, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
It shouldn't have affected that. Do you mean that you don't see the part of the right with a green background here? Angela (talk) 05:03, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
I didn't, but I do now =/ --Chaos sig 2.png 12:19, 26 February 2009 (UTC)


I asked in the archive, but I don't think anyone who could give me a real answer, answered =s. So anyway, how will PvXCode be updated? How will changes be made to it, such as updating skill descriptions, or adding new features, such as mouse over Attribute descriptions?. ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 21:56, 25 February 2009 (UTC)


the generic issues, no matter related to what, are posted here. Where should those posts actually belong, does such a page even exist? ---Chaos- 14:23, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

more watchlist issues

I noticed when i was editing my watchlist, that a couple of articles have been shown as none existant (red linked), when infact there is an article there, at least the "Guide:Page name" pages are concerned (might be because Guide isn't an actual namespace, idk.) ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 23:00, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

The guide namespace was requested above. I tried it out with Guide:Test and it showed up on my watchlist ok. Do you have an example of pages where it is not working? Angela (talk) 05:39, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
  1. Guide:Assassin
  2. Guide:Dervish
  3. Guide:Elementalist
  4. Guide:Generic Utility Ranger
  5. Guide:Mesmer
  6. Guide:Monk
  7. Guide:Necromancer
  8. Guide:Norn Fighting Tournament
  9. Guide:Paragon
  10. Guide:PvE Metagame
  11. Guide:PvP Metagame
  12. Guide:RA Roles Guide
  13. Guide:Ranger
  14. Guide:Ritualist
  15. Guide:Underworld Trapping
  16. Guide:Warrior

All of those on my watchlist have this problem. Guide:Death Leveling Pets doesn't have this problem, but I added it after the Guide namespace was created. Toraen 05:44, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

I see what you mean now at Special:Watchlist/edit. I'll see what can be done about fixing this. Am I correct to assume that the guide: namespace did not exist before the move, but the pages did exist? Angela (talk) 15:22, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
That's correct. ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 16:36, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm told this is fixed now - please let me know if you still see the problem (I can't check myself since it only applies to pages watched before the move). Angela (talk) 12:35, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
yup, thank you =). ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 17:51, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

ID concerns

Considering I'm one of the most inactive members on pvx, I just got on for the first time in 2009 to update a build and a message popped up that someone left me a note on peace elements and it was someone else with the exact same ID name as mine. (idk about password though) Q: Is it possible that two people with the same user name on different wikias can use it as identity theft (i.e. vandalism or worse, email addresses)? ☆Imbagon♥McSteve☆(LVPoW) Cuz Steve said so... ツ 15:06, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

No, that's not possible. It means the Wikia user was inactive and you have been given control of the name "Steve". It looks like we have a slight bug though because his edits ought to have been reassigned to Peace-Steve. Angela (talk) 07:37, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
