" On May 1, 2007, all articles in the GuildWiki build namespace will be deleted. After that date, no build articles may be posted to the GuildWiki in either the main or build namespaces before a new policy is decided on. Find the reasoning and the details behind this at GuildWiki:Builds wipe. "

lol, i think too many builds were being posted that were similar to others so there were like a billion repeat builds.  it kinda sux to see it go but very much needed.

Yeah, that section was overwhelmed. So they are reevaluating the plan for management.

They probably figure its not needed anymore. With the builds so easily accessible in game now, you dont really need to refer to a site to get them.

Easily "pingable" if you have them saved. Smart move on their part imo.

Some of the users have/are in the process of archiving the "good" builds  http://gw.gamewikis.org/wiki/User:Auron_of_Neon/Archive_effort.

It's not that there will never be builds on the wiki again, they just need to get a proper policy worked out, which may take time.

They are also going to be updating the profession guides, outlining general categories of builds typically run and looked for, letting the user try and come up with something that works for them.
