:Well, it was marked with {{t|Stub/Guild}} and was linked to from [[Server:Ysondre Europe]], it certainly looks like a guild article. It doesn't appear to belong in the main namespace however I am unsure of a resolution, but appropriate categories should be specified as well as a proper intro or other text explaining what type of article it is. --{{User:Gryphon/Sig}} 00:00, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

::Gryphon -- this is also the case for SASU. I don't have any emotional attachment to the matter, since I'm not a member any more, but it's fairly clear that it's a group of guilds as per the template and text. I am also not a frequent WoWWiki editor, but I guess I'd suggest a Raiding Alliance category of some sort. [[User:Strand|Strand]] 21:36, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

== Relocation of Ubarlight's Page ==
 
 
Ubarlight understands that [[Server:Blackrock US/Ubarlight|Ubarlight]]'s page was sorted, however, Ubarlight believes that it would fit better under funny articles where it was, or as an Argent Dawn (US) character, since Ubarlight is a character of comical and mythical proportions, and originated on the Argent Dawn (US) server. Thanks for your time! OH YEA! {{unsigned|Ubarlight}} 05:35, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
 
 
:There is policy about where character profile belong. It is hardly funny to anyone outside that one server's community, if funny at all, it certain does not belong in the main namespace. --{{User:Gryphon/Sig}} 05:35, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
 
 
 
::Alright, that makes sense. Ubarlight did not originally make the page, a follower did, and they must have put it in the Category:Silly section, so Ubarlight just assumed that that was where it was suppose to be. Unless of course... someone else other than you and Ubarlight moved it prior... Anyways, thanks! --[[User:Ubarlight|Ubarlight]] 11:54, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
 
 
== Battle Articles Names ==
 
 
I thought I should inform you about a discussion I've presented at Naming Policy to solve the problem of Battle Articles. [[User:Baggins|Baggins]] came in and relocated more than ten articles without discussing it.--[[User:Gonzalo84|Gonzalo84]] 14:04, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
 
 
: People rarely keep up on those talk pages, I have posted a feedback request on the Village pump. --{{User:Gryphon/Sig}} 15:48, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
 
 
== SD ==
 
 
Just noted your 23 Aug comment about SD notes. Sure, your 11 sept comment is some time later, but wanted to ask... are my SD notes sufficiently deserving? Would rather ask than continue in a disapproved pattern. --[[User:Eirik Ratcatcher|Eirik Ratcatcher]] 22:58, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

== English WoW Tools - not english? ==
 
 
err.. it seems you did only look at the domain (.de) and not at the tools. Almost all of my tools are only available in english. so why is it "not english content"? I don't understand that. {{unsigned|Bl4ckSh33p}}
 
: I did look at the site and found little english in trying to navigate the site regardless if the programs are in english. However, you already have the site listed, sub sections of a site do not qualify you to list your site twice. As well, the site was listed incorrectly. --{{User:Gryphon/Sig}} 14:56, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
 
 
== Guild:The Ta'veren (Argent Dawn US) ==
 
 
Could you give me a hint why the page for Ta'veren was deleted? I see your note in the deletion log but I don't understand it. It is of course a raiding alliance and not technically a guild, as noted on the page, but it's not the only "non-guild" guild listed in Argent Dawn's raiding progression, nor the only AD raiding alliance with a guild page on WoWWiki. Thus, while there is no actual guild called "The Ta'veren" on Argent Dawn, all of the members of the raiding alliance reside and raid together on that server. Did I make the wrong sort of page? Is there a raiding alliance template, or do raiding alliances have no place on WoWWiki? I could just make the entry on the raid progression page link directly to the group'ss site on Guild Portal if having a small informational page about the group on WoWWiki is inappropriate.
 
--[[User:Drashian|Drashian]] 20:56, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
 
:I was looked through the deletion record. Looks to me like a bot tagged it as a guild that didn't exist (because it doesn't). Gryphon can prolly fix that for you. :) --[[User:Sky2042|Sky]] ([[User talk:Sky2042|t]] · [[Special:Contributions/Sky2042|c]] · [http://www.wowhead.com/?user=Skyfire w]) 21:05, 22 September 2007 (UTC)<br/>If/when he does, I would suggest moving it to [[Server:Argent Dawn US/The Ta'veren]], so we don't have this sort of mixup in the future. --[[User:Sky2042|Sky]] ([[User talk:Sky2042|t]] · [[Special:Contributions/Sky2042|c]] · [http://www.wowhead.com/?user=Skyfire w]) 21:06, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
 
::I have restored and moved it. It was marked for deletion for nearly a month and it was tagged as a stub the same day the article was created. It appears nobody cared that the article was incomplete or marked for deletion. It might be a good idea to keep tabs on articles you are directly interested in and do what is needed to ensure that they meet policy. --{{User:Gryphon/Sig}} 23:04, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
 
:::I agree with you there, it was my mistake to neglect a page I put there myself for so long. I'll take better care of my contributions in the future. Thanks for the quick response. --[[User:Drashian|Drashian]] 04:10, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
 
 
== Template ==
 
 
Hey dude, I love your template for organizing servers, and I'd like to slowly change the entire Stormstrike battlegroup to it, I'm already changing my server, Dalvengyr, to it and it's really sweet. Do you mind if I use this template or should I just bug off? --[[User:Ithar|Ithar]] 00:04, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

: I haven't worked on it anymore, it could be useful to replace Server, Server_US and Server_EU. Should probably use named variables, did unnamed before I realized the benefits of named. --{{User:Gryphon/Sig}} 01:20, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
 
 
== Hey ==
 
 
Miss seeing you in IRC and seeing your excellent edits here on the wiki. Hope everything's ok! --{{User:Pcj/sig}} 02:09, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
 
: Hey thanks for the concern Pcj. All is well, just been on a long holiday break on the road visiting family and such. As far as edits go, I've been keeping busy with a ton of other web projects as well, though I check my watchlist and pump pretty much daily. Should be back on IRC on the 2nd of January. Thanks again. --{{User:Gryphon/Sig}} 22:03, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
 
 
== Wowhead ==
 
 
Hey there. Over on Wowhead (where I'm [http://wowhead.com/?user=harmil harmil]), you've edited some of my postings. In one case, you deleted a posting and in another at least 2 cases, you've edited out information about my character/server/guild that I put at the end of otherwise helpful (at least I thought so) posts. Since I don't know of a way to contact you there, I thought I should do so, here. Can you tell me which rule you're going by, here, since I cannot seem to find anything in the FAQ which precludes identifying one's characters, guild or server, and since the names I usually go by were not available on Wowhead, I want to have some way to identify myself in my postings and relate those postings to the other ways that I contribute to various WoW-releated sites. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you. -[[User:Deepone|Deepone]] ([[User talk:Deepone|talk]]) 19:51, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi i was wondering, do i have permission to add the 500 club tag to my own page or do you or someone else have to do it? I have checked my edits and i do have over 500. I just want some clearance on it as i dont wanna get in trouble. Respond soon if you can please, thanks!--[[User:Whitedragon254|Whitedragon254]] ([[User talk:Whitedragon254|talk]]) 21:44, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
