@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:17
how u know? i was looking for clues earlier
y tho
building forums is a lot of work or something
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:18
uhh, ok
lets build one
that integrates gitter
i already did
like three times
(not the gitter bit)
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:18
heh
i was mostly after the support contract
nothing like supplementing your income

@codemasher

yeah this has been in the works for a long time
we had a lot of unusual demands for the forums
yep, php
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 12 2017 17:21
as long as search works
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:22
so does that mean we can finally fix broken things by ourselves? :D
api \o/
and (working) code tags
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:25
woohoo!
oh and will the old topics be restored?
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 12 2017 17:28
no
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:28
there was lots of knowledge in the API forums
(tbh, i'd fire myself if i had to set up a new forum with an old community in that way)
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:31
smh
but i guess that's the cost for a poor choice in the beginning :(
windwarrior
@windwarrior

Is there still a dev tracker
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 12 2017 17:41
Sad no weekend project for me
Unless something completely unforeseen happens, the old forums should be in place at least until the end of October.
sooo, if the old forums are still online somewhere, what about us API folks do a little forum task force to find any useful information there before it goes down?
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 12 2017 17:43

I need to share this with you guys, our VG run last night, where we mostly screwed up the whole fight. and in Phase 5, our tank thought he was in phase 3, so instead of going in circles, he was bouncing between red and green...

but we beat him, and my heals were amazing. TEMPEST HEAL BEST HEAL

smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:43
there'll be also several deadlinks in the wiki's API namespace
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 12 2017 17:43
god damnit gitter
@codemasher you could just scrape the entire old forums and re-host it somewhere
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:44
i think (hope) archive.org did that already
The only thing you can believe in is yourself
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:45
heh
gimme the old database and i'll write you an export tool :P
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 12 2017 17:46
@Coffee4cr common strategy in organized play
I don't have access to the database
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:47
q.q
but a database dump would be an export, no need for a tool
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 12 2017 17:47
qT does without being hit by a lit field
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:47
i mean, u kno, export to new
you mean import
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:47
(wouldn't be the first one tho)
ex-import
zimport
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:48
lmao
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 12 2017 17:48
@windwarrior bouncing it between red/green in phase 3 yes, but not in phase 5
man what should I make my avatar on the new forums
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:49
what, we can now have avatars?
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 12 2017 17:49
why not use the same as here?
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 17:49
wasn't that disallowed before?
(aside of technically questionable)
hmm apparently avatar uploads aren't available for normal staff members
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 12 2017 17:51
@windwarrior that's not the same, in phase 5, they move 1 time, and kill him :P
we're not that pro :P
some people have an arenanet logo as their avatar, I need that
that way my downvotes are more important
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 12 2017 17:51
LOL
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 12 2017 17:54
They incidentally also have 250k dps after fist phase
but you can do this strat even with lower dps, your distorts need to be on point tho, and your condi druid might need to spam CA for a while
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 12 2017 18:00
why does the forum have a seperate mobile look and feel
if it also scales quite well to mobile sizes
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 18:01
Narrator: "responsive!"
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 12 2017 18:02
I think by default, vanilla uses two themes, one for mobile size and one without... no matter if the desktop version is compatible or not
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 12 2017 18:02
oh nevermind, it doesnt
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 18:02
haha
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 12 2017 18:02
the mobile theme looks like someone googled "how did forums look in 2004"
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 12 2017 18:03
good times
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 12 2017 18:04
it does use HTML5 stuff tho
as in, modern HTML tags like section and aside and ..
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 12 2017 18:13
also @Coffee4cr, interesing comp you have there, single chrono, no druids. Lacking a lot of buffs that way, eles without full crit chance, no spirits, gotl, limited quickness/alac

that "borderless" iPhone looks cool

Sep 12 2017 18:34
@windwarrior we beat it, no? :P
even with our tank fucking us up in Phase 5
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 12 2017 18:35
gotta beat it fast :>

as there been any attempt of waiting(face tanking) for VG to enrage before starting damage on him?
windwarrior

Sep 12 2017 18:39
there has been a three-man that took 17 minutes
Archomeda

Sep 12 2017 19:15
ohhh cool, json :D
didn't the archiveteam or something archive the steam forums before it went down?
maybe we can start the same for the old gw2 forums?
Werdes
@werdes
Sep 12 2017 19:34

that "borderless" iPhone looks cool

1149€ / 1319€ is a nogo though

Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 12 2017 19:38
also, are the old forums going to be read-only at some point? :P
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 12 2017 19:44
I thought the old forums were going to be gone at some point
They said they were locking them later today
The existing forums will be locked later today, but our plan is to keep the current forums accessible in an archived, read-only mode until the end of October.
@Archomeda
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 12 2017 19:46
alright, after it's locked it seems to be the right moment to archive them

http://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=Frequently_Asked_Questions#halp_pls_halp

I think there is a web site that's going to shut down / sun set / end its incredible journey. Can you save it?
Yes, do tell us a soon as possible! Don't just Tweet about it; do something. Get things done. Talk to us on IRC to let us know. There is also a /r/shutdown sub-Reddit.
For small websites, see ArchiveBot. For large websites, the Warrior may need to be deployed. Please take a look at Dev for learning how the Warrior works.

well there you go :P

i haven't used IRC in ages though
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 12 2017 19:53
irssi \o/
alternatively, just use mibbit
cool
I wonder if there's existing integration with gitter or something
Doesn't look like it, but I guess I could write one
Or write a bot to post a message when a new thread pops up or something
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 12 2017 20:05
you mean QuagganBooOOoot/gitter-bot#3?
:+1:
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 12 2017 20:06
writing a message when a new thread gets posted should be easy enough
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 12 2017 20:08
@darthmaim doesn't seem like those endpoints are actually working
yeah but the one I posted works, so scraping should be really straightforward
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 12 2017 20:08
you have to drop the /api/v1 prefix from the url
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 12 2017 20:08
i would expect https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/api/v1/categories/list.json if i follow that doc page
we had them customize a lot of stuff
maintaining the API functionality was probably not a priority
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 12 2017 20:09
:/
btw, what's the text formatter? markdown?
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 12 2017 20:10
yes
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 12 2017 20:11
"Format": "Markdown",
just appending .json to urls seems to work
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 12 2017 20:12
yes, that's what i've been doing :P
.rss mostly works too
why did gaile post that message and not our lye? haha
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 12 2017 20:17
level 90
@lye is cheating
Archomeda

@Archomeda

poke gaile :P
I just did
I'm sure she's super busy with the launch so I don't know when she'll get around to updating it
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 12 2017 20:30
fair :)
dang I can't edit the post myself
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 12 2017 20:31
need 20 more levels for that :D
i thought my pre-order came with a level boost
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 12 2017 20:32
level boost only works to get to level 80 ;)
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 12 2017 20:50
there are level 84 mobs in dungeons I think

@lye cool new forums! should totally allow gw2armory character embeds now :angel:
I still can't change the forum code
:)
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 12 2017 23:53
now that the new forums are live, has a heavy burden been lifted off your shoulders? or did you not have anything to do with the release?
