The Crusader of Truth has awarded you a Sweetroll!

Hey 1857! I wanted to stop by and thank you on the behalf of the community for adding those interwiki links! They all look amazing, keep up the wonderful work, and have a great day. Hope to see you around the wiki! – The Crusader of Truth (talkchat) 03:03, October 22, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Translation of Wikia content[edit source]

If the content on the Russian wiki is accurate, then yes, feel free to translate it and put the content on here. The exception here is for books/quotes, as we would need the original material for that. We don't have as many TESO editors as I would like, so many of our articles for the game are somewhat lacking. —Atvelonis (talk) 15:12, July 21, 2018 (UTC)

Thank you[edit source]

You're doing really well with the interwiki links. I'm amazed at how consistently you've been adding them and at the sheer quantity you've been able to provide. Keep up the good work. —Atvelonis (talk) 14:38, October 18, 2018 (UTC)

Re: Closure of Tagalog wiki[edit source]

Thanks for the heads up. Any links on the mainspace to tl.elderscrolls have now been removed. —Atvelonis (talk) 18:26, October 26, 2018 (UTC)

Re: Wikis in other languages[edit source]

Hi 1857a, thanks for the message. I've run an AWB scan and removed links to ka.elderscrolls.wikia.com on mainspace pages. Regarding your second question, this came up some time ago when some members of the Ukrainian Wiki split off and started editing the alternative one. You can see on this page that we were previously asked to change our links from uk.elderscrolls to uk.tes, but we declined on the basis that the new wiki had not really "proven" itself in terms of content yet. That was about a year and a half ago, and the new Ukrainian Wiki is still smaller than the older one, so I would stick with what I said in that message and continue linking to uk.elderscrolls for the time being. —Atvelonis (talk) 04:21, November 8, 2018 (UTC)

RE: Senes(c)hal[edit source]

Thanks for pointing it out, but it's Seneschal. The other page I have marked for deletion. The Seneschal is an official title within the Breton kingdoms, and is the name shown ingame, too.

Re: Duplicates[edit source]

Regarding the duplicate hunter camps, it seems that they are the same location, so I'll be fixing the pages shortly. Since the same name belongs to other locations in Online, I'll have to change the name of one page into our standard, as well as mark the other for deletion. Good job noticing it. Thanks!

Re: Worship(p)ers[edit source]

I don't believe this was intentional since we name the pages using the spelling we would find in the game. They don't seem to be linked to a lot of other pages so I can fix this according to the spelling used in-game now. Thanks! Rozty (talk) 19:28, November 25, 2018 (UTC)

Re: Bot linking[edit source]

Hi 1857a, yes, it would be possible to have the links added automatically with a bot, especially if they have the exact same names. Unfortunately, this is not something that I can do with AutoWikiBrowser, as far as I am aware, and Flightmare is a bit busy to write a script for KINMUNE at the moment. I know that Vuh has done something similar in the past with VuBot, adding links to pages on here that were only linked on pl.elderscrolls pages. Since he has that experience, you might want to ask him about doing interwiki-related bot tasks! —Atvelonis (talk) 01:30, November 28, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for all your help with the interwiki links. Not sure if you've heard anything further about an interwiki bot, but this may be of interest: here and here. Let me know if you think that's something you'd be interested in. I could ask around about it as well --Shockstorm (talk) 07:39, July 31, 2019 (UTC)

Page renames[edit source]

Hi, when you rename a page like Daedric Greatsword, please remember to update any associated links found on Special:WhatLinksHere. Makes things much easier for readers! Thanks. —Atvelonis (talk) 18:50, October 6, 2019 (UTC)

Re: Spammer[edit source]

Handled, thank you for the heads up. —Atvelonis (talk) 14:15, October 27, 2019 (UTC)

Holiday raffle prize[edit source]

Hi 1857a, congratulations on being a winner for the 2019 Holiday Raffle! In order for you to receive a prize, I'll need to reach out privately. Do you think that you could join the wiki's Discord server and DM me? Thanks. —Atvelonis (talk) 20:35, February 2, 2020 (UTC)
