Hiyas! Saw you working on some of the same gem/jewel/jewelcrafting pages I was, thought I'd be neighborly. Don't mind my small changes on  [Azure Moonstone Ring], I just like the listed ingredients better, myself, having seen them that way elsewhere. --Eirik Ratcatcher 14:53, 20 February 2007 (EST)


Friendly reminder, after you are done wikifying a page, please remove the Boilerplating stub, so it will look cleaner. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 04:02, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

I am quite sure that I removed the Biolerplating stub, but it must have been added later. Thanks. gOurra 05:02, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Vanity redirects

Please be reminded that vanity redirects are not allowed in the main article namespace of WoWWiki. Feel free to use links like [[Server:Steamwheedle Cartel US/Aeyerryn|Aeyerryn Indari]], (which produces Aeyerryn Indari), instead of creating and recreating vanity redirects. I've marked the article Aeyerryn Indari for speedy deletion. At quick reference, you may find all articles that you have edited at Special:Contributions/Gourra. Thank you again for your contributions. --k_d3 19:13, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Thank you, I'll keep that in mind in the future. gOurra 19:17, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Creating pages to delete them

I'm stumped by your creation of pages simply to vote on deletion, such as Iron Reckoning, Black Vault, Matsujin, and Dark Hand Covenant. Why? --k_d3 19:13, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Apologies, but if the articles are supposed to be for guilds then it should be "Guild:" in front. I'll check the links that point to it in the future. Thanks. gOurra 19:16, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
If they are dead links why delete them? They are not there to begin.--SWM2448 19:17, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
Read my reply again. Thanks. gOurra 19:19, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
Sorry.--SWM2448 19:19, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

guild page names

I noticed you added Guild: to Stormreaver. Good, but they also need a set of parantheses with the server and location (US or EU) at the end. Eg. Guild:Violence (Shadowmoon US). Thanks for helping out. --Sky (t | c | w) 22:21, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll do that right away.--gOurra 22:24, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

WC2 stuff

I noticed you appeared to be recreating the Warcraft II manual in User:Gourra/Sandbox/1. You can put them in real pages, if you want. I was thinking of just moving it to Warcraft II manual, if you give your permission. --Gengar orange 22x22.png Fandyllic (talk · contr) 3:41 PM PST 31 Dec 2007

I was thinking of not putting it in there yet since it's incomplete, so that's the reason why I haven't written it there. It would be great of you if you could move it.--gOurra 00:51, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I moved it. It is definitely finished enough. --Gengar orange 22x22.png Fandyllic (talk · contr) 10:48 AM PST 1 Jan 2008

Image names

I notaced you were uploading stuff from Wowhead that just has a number for a name, could you next time rename the image to what it is about? Kd3 and Sky were talking about making that a rule, just to give you a heads up. --SWM2448 21:01, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

No problem, I'll keep that in mind in the future.--gOurra 21:02, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading smaller images

I've been slowly going through images that are around 200KB and over and tagging them with the {{cleanup}} template, but you uploaded a smaller version without prompting. Thanks. --Gengar orange 22x22.png Fandyllic (talk · contr) 12:01 PM PST 2 Jan 2008

You're welcome; I like cleaning up this site.--gOurra 20:11, 2 January 2008 (UTC)


Hmm, well that explains a few things...seems they are actually known as Rock Flayers, and they already have a page, and category for them...go figure, lol.

Bah, then someone should've added it in the list. What's more strange is that it's not in the race box that it has on the page! *mutters something incomprehensible* gOurra[T¦C] 14:46, 18 January 2008 (UTC)


I hate it when anyone edits my personal pages.

Anyone but those who do it right, without deleting any info, and only improving, just as you did.

Thank you, those are the only kind of contributions I'd like to see on WoWwiki. Keep it up, your way of editing personal pages for code improvement is the best one. By the way, your other contributions are rather good too.--K ) (talk) 11:04, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, again.--K ) (talk) 21:38, 3 February 2008 (UTC)


A member mentioned in the RPG. He's not in the MMO.Baggins 19:44, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Alright, thanks. Was about to ask you to make a page about him then, but you were faster than me.--g0urra[T҂C] 21:33, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Sources for Remka

She's appeared only in Lord of the Clans, so all the source info is from that novel. --Joshmaul 03:44, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

2.4 items

Wow... what did you do, do all of those prior in notepad or something? --Sky (t | c | w) 07:22, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Instance navigation

Hey Gourra. I noticed you added the bosses field to the Maraudon instance, which is great. However, make sure to include the instance navigation as a template - the instancebox doesn't do this automatically. In addition, when you add them like that you need to reformat the instance navigation template to the new format (see the changes I made to both Maraudon and Template:Maraudon to see what I mean). Hope this is helpful. --Jiyambi t || c 18:41, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Also, please don't use the (lore) link next to bosses (as in RFD) unless there are separate strategy and lore pages for that boss. --Jiyambi t || c 18:45, 11 February 2008 (UTC)
I thought that might be the case after seeing the work you did on the RFD page - it looked like you knew what you were doing :) Well, sorry for the needless note and for stealing away your work! And, thanks for contributing to the instance nav cleanup :) --Jiyambi t || c 19:05, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Tooltip code "effect"

When you are listing an item's "effects" (i.e. the green text in a tooltip) please do not separate every effect by putting them on a new line. Feel free to use line breaks of course, but instead of putting


just run them all together like


Giving each effect its own line causes tooltips to not be displayed when using the loot template (at least in Firefox). ^_^ --Tiwuno 23:34, 13 February 2008 (UTC)


Was there a particular reason you split up Varedis Must Be Stopped?

The quest is identical for the two branches (aldor, scryer). There are only minor differences in the dialog, and those were detailed. So... why must a person go to separate pages to see the quest? --Eirik Ratcatcher 17:44, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

If you're not going to add everything that is needed, like the categories, or put a stub on it, just let foxbot do it.

Armor volume quests

Thanks for your work on the Dire Maul quests to gain Enchanted Thorium armor recipes. I've been working on the Compleat Blacksmith (guide to gaining all blacksmithing recipes), and it's been like combing hair. The first bit is easy, but by the time you get out to the ends, it get ratty and uneven... --Eirik Ratcatcher 20:30, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Elemental Mage Staff

I wish someone would have asked me politely instead of being so demanding. I likely would have stopped... I am going to stop now anyway, sorry for all the trouble. - Alenaa

Wowhead copy/paste

Actually it's thott's. Are you saying it's bad cuz it's not a spell link? Or bad because it's new patch data? Or is the data just completely wrong?--User:Innocentlysassy/Sig 10:26, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Okay, that's easily taken out. --10:30, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Would you be interested in joining the Watchdogs?

See WoWWiki:Watchdogs. I think you're a good candidate. --Gengar orange 22x22.png Fandyllic (talk · contr) 1:17 PM PST 29 Mar 2008

Aww, gee, thanks.--g0urra[T҂C] 19:04, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

You Rule!

You rule gourra,Thanks for making my Top Class Twinks page how it is now!I don't know how you did it but now it looks awsome.Could you tell me how to do that sometime?Thank you again! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lovsospooge (talk · contr).


You keep beating me to my plans to edit specific pages, lol! No hard feelings, far from that, it's just that it's turning into a habit lol... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bajo (talk · contr).


Hi, I noticed you asked "what's the point" of my redirects...

Basically it's because when I searched for those things it didn't go directly to that page, and it took another link or two to find what I was looking for. The "" pages don't have a space after the colon, as a noob like myself might expect, and titles are case sensitive, so I added a redirect from Quest: Seeing what happens amnd Seeing what happens to B [50G] Seeing What Happens. I believe people like myself who forget to be pedantic when typing in the search bar will find this useful. Could admins perhaps make some of these things automatic?

See and for more reasons for and against...

Please reconsider your marks for speedy deletion and remove them; or discuss your reasons in more detail. Dwarfish 18:25, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

If you can't figure out the name of the quest, you could always use the search tool. But could you imagine how many possible combinations it could take to redirect a quest by the name of oh "This Gnome has serious problems... We can fix". And that is why those redirects are not wanted and why the search tool exists.

OK, thanks for that - I understand now. However, I would have preferred an explanation such as Coobra's rather than "what's the point?" when tagging some of my first articles for speedy deletion. Please don't bite the noobs! Dwarfish 20:24, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
