Image sharing feature

Greetings Atvelonis,

I'm an admin of the french TES wikia, and you recently brought some precious advices in order for us to upgrade the quality of our wikia : many thanks for this again. Among other stuff, you authorized us to use the english wikia's pictures and images if we credited the image with a ling back to your wikia.

However, it has been brought to my attention there was a possibility to activate the Wikia Image Sharing Feature . It would allow us to use your images directly, using the same file name as you. It only works one way, so our own image imports would not affect your wikia. Would you agree to let us activate such feature ? If the credits of the image seem too unclear of not visible enough, we can manage to find other ways to give your work the visibility it deserves.The only things required are the source wikia agreement, and a Fandom admin request. 

Looking forward to read from you soon,

Giveaway

Hi, Atvelonis!

Bethesda reached out to us in order to help promote their newest giveaway. I posted about it in the forums here and highlighted it; if it isn't in the right place, please feel free to move it. If there's any other way to help promote it, like a badge on the main page or anything, please let me know of any other options :)

Best regards,

Raylan13@fandom (talk) 00:11, November 18, 2016 (UTC)

Ulfric Stormcloak

Just mentioning a potential edit war. Personally, I think the initial edit was reletively pointless, and Bron agrees in that reguard. I was just wondering what your opinion was on this. Ottoman Hold Message Me My Action 03:19:03 November 19, 2016

My defense is that the adjective is appropriate, relevant to the section of the article since it regards a clarification of an opinion of an NPC, and thus should remain without someone trying to remove content or change words so as to change the intent and meaning of the author. Since Ulfric considers the Empire too weak to protect its citizens along with exploiting them for their own personal gain, then an "inept" or at least an "incompetent" adjective should be a worthy edit addition, instead of Ottoman cutting it out because he subjectively finds the tone of the adjective distasteful. If it's apt and sourced, why should it not remain? If it is such a trivial addition, why are people so determined to remove it? And if people can remove content every time they are triggered by how a phrase is worded, it makes me question the impartiality of this wiki and the abuse of power by its mods.(Sports72Xtrm (talk))
" Let's present all significant, competing views sympathetically." By denying me an edit that just provides a clarification of an opinion of a lore character, it would be trying to suppress a competing view.(Sports72Xtrm (talk))

Bad block?

I'm pretty sure you didn't intend to block this user for "removing information", but rather the IP of the user who preceded to edit that same article for the same reason. --Sajuuk 15:39, November 28, 2016 (UTC)

No worries, it happens to the best of us. ;)
On a separate note, I really think talkpage policy needs to be formalised as a real policy, 'cause there are still instances (limited, but they happen) of people using talkpages like forum boards. I don't want to make a whole thread about it, can it be discussed at the next moot, whenever that will be? --Sajuuk 15:43, November 28, 2016 (UTC)

Editing problem

Atvelonis, I have a question, if you take a look on the image shown here, there is a problem.

MisterClover (talk) 19:23, November 30, 2016 (UTC)

You will have to be a bit more specific in what steps you took to get here. We can send this in as bug report in case anything broke. Did you change anything to the page before trying to save it? Try going back and give a detailed step-by-step report if you can. — Flightmare @fandom (talk) 19:52, November 30, 2016 (UTC)

On the Chat Box where the join chat button is, there’s a “Please Read” section. How did you add that? Is there a Dev Wiki page about it? (I couldn’t find any).

Super Walkthrough update

Hey hey :)

Just wanted to give you and the rest of the admin staff a li'l heads up. Yesterday, Bethesda requested changes to Super Walkthrough:The Elder Scrolls Online. That means I'll be doing some work on the constituent templates in the coming days.

The main changes will be done to Template:ESO Continents, which Bethesda feel needs to be tweaked to present geographical information with a bit more impact for the player. The changes are a direct response to their notes, and will give a little more information about each region.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. -- CzechOut @fandom 17:22, December 7, 2016 (UTC)

Resignaition

I need to resign. I insulted a user in an edit summary tonight. I can not continue here if I do that. I will continue to make my usual maintainance edits, but i feel that it will be wrong of me to continue calling myself a staff member if I say stuff like "Ugh... Somebody else can patrol this person's substandard images." in edit summaries. That was nothng more than me taking my anger out on someone else. This wiki deserves some one better than me for my position The Cat Master (talk) 10:07, December 9, 2016 (UTC)

I decided to stick around a while longer. Things have not been going so great IRL, and last night I had an emotional break down, and I tend to act rashly when I'm in that state. I know that user has a reputation for consistently uploading images that don't meet our standards, but I feel that my comment on the edit summary to their edit was uncalled for, and I could have handled that better.

Merry Christmas and (a bit too early to wish it already, but i'll do it already anyway) a Happy New Year!

I would like to use the Christmas/New Year-wishes-tradition, to thank those around me who kept wikia and daily life more fun for me during the past year. Everything just seems so normal and evident that we are here almost every day, yet it's very worthwhile to consider for a moment how wonderful it is to have people like you around me, making editing and being on chat a lot more enjoyable. I would also like to use this opportunity to wish a happy and healthy new year for you and everyone around you who is dear to you. I hope you'll have a great and healthy new year in which all your wishes may come true! - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 02:22, December 24, 2016 (UTC)

Template|Game Categories

Hey Atv. Merry Christmas! Had to find a way to bother you as a present, so here I am.

I'm not sure if you've noticed or not – You probably have – but some of our templates leave categories on the template pages theirself as well as the pages they go on. If you don't understand what I mean, check the categories on this. The page is registering as an actual Skyrim page, and not a template in terms of categories. This is all pretty stupid for me to tell you, I guess, but I thought I'd mention it.

As for actually fixing it, because the issue is with more than one template, I wanted to suggest that we use <includeonly> and <noinclude>> on the entire thing. Pretty stupid for me to mention that too I guess, but I want to run this by you before I actually do it, in case I break something, like I normally do.

One last thing, could you get the category off of this by replacing/removing the template? Thanks man. And again, merry Christmas. The_CrusaderTalkpage02:46:15 December 25, 2016_

Question about categories

Hey Atv. I was wondering about a little something for future reference. I came across a page missing a race as missing data and I was wondering if there was a specific category that treats just that specific missing data? Because I wouldn't mind going through all of those and fixing them accordingly but I don't really feel like wading through all the ones that are only missing their level or something. If that's something that can be done or you can point me in the direction, that would be great. Louise 069 (talk) 08:11, December 25, 2016 (UTC)

Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood Characters

I just realized something. I forgot to change the categories to the appropriate add-ons while making my edits. I would love to fix them but I created so many pages I've lost tracked of them :/ So yeah. I will do so in the future but I don't know what to do about them. Louise 069 (talk) 19:14, December 25, 2016 (UTC)

Sorry to barge in... {{ThievesGuildCharacters}} and {{DarkBrotherhoodCharacters}} can be used instead of {{OnlineCharacters}} to correctly categorize appropriate NPCs. —TheDefiant604 (talk • contribs) 19:31, December 25, 2016 (UTC)

Rawl'kha (Lore)

Hey, Atvelonis

I don't think Rawl'kha (Lore) should be merged with the other page. Just because it only appears in one game, doesn't mean we can't have a lore page. Morthal and Sadrith Mora only appear in one game and yet they have lore pages. Another game could come out in the future and provide us more lore for the city. Besides, the other Rawl'kha page is an ESO specific page, if I can't put the Lore: Cities category there and label it as lore, then why should we move the lore there. --Vincentius1 (talk) 19:31, December 26, 2016 (UTC)

True I did make those pages but if Rawl'kha (Lore) was suggested to be merged then what about those two. If you want to get rid of the (Lore) suffix that's fine, but the whole point of a lore page is to include the overall information of whatever the page is about. History, architecture, cuisine, events, etc should go to a lore page. Besides, I don't think there will be any confusion with the different pages. We have the suffixes (Skyrim) and (Oblivion) to show that those pages are specific to those games. If it doesn't have those suffixes then it can be assumed that it's either the general page or the disambiguation page. If people want the version of Windhelm in Skyrim, they go to Windhelm (Skyrim), if they want to learn lore they go to the regular Windhelm page. --Vincentius1 (talk) 20:25, December 26, 2016 (UTC)
I've gotta grand it to Vincentius, lore pages are more useful for, well, the lore. While the game-specific pages are usually cluttered with what happens in the game it belongs to, which is what it's meant for. Also, when it comes to lore-pages, they are, usually, easier to change than game-specific ones, and by having one in advance we save ourselves the time of having to create a new page when a location does make a second appearance. But that's just my opinion, do with it as you see fit.

I need help with something

I somehow ended up with this thing at the bottom of my profile:
Retrieved from "http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/User:The_Cat_Master?oldid=2277370".

I have never seen this before, and can not figure out how to get rid of it. I have tried editing and reediting my profile, but the code for it does not show up in the editor. Would you by chance know what it is, and how to get rid of it. If not, would you know of anybody who may know about it? The Cat Master (talk) 08:32, January 4, 2017 (UTC)

Monobook Bug (had to switch to Wikia to post this)

(Sorry for external image but apparently you’re not allowed to upload images for some bureaucratic reason.) Cck3xlM.png

^This is what I see, I can’t edit it or anything, & this applies to all User Talk pages & User Profiles. It’s just greyed out & I cannot interact with it in any way. Is this a bug?
MikePence4FTW (talk) 10:29, January 5, 2017 (UTC)

EDIT: Turns out the whole bloody site is like that. I can’t click links, edit pages, view images, anything. Plus, with the greyscale, I can’t even read anything either unless I zoom & squint. Is this Fandom’s issue, or something to do with the Monobook.css/js?
Also, bit of a side note, the Table of Contents doesn’t load on this Wiki in the Wikia Skin for me either...like, at all. It just loads indefinitely & I can’t click any of the links. I’m 80% sure this is either a Fandom or Cookie issue, but it might be on your end, I don’t know, thought I’d mention it so that you’d be aware, since I just now noticed it upon switching to Wikia.
MikePence4FTW (talk) 10:41, January 5, 2017 (UTC)
There haven't been any reports of this issue before. It does look like some modal isn't loading. If you think the issue goes beyond this wiki, you should contact staff, they have far better insights in these type of issues. It also helps if you pull up your browser's dev tools to see what errors it might be listing, or try a different browser such as Firefox or Chrome. — Flightmare @fandom (talk) 14:29, January 5, 2017 (UTC)

Can you tell me if this computer is any good?

Hello? i asked in the chat room of anyone knew anything about computers and they said ask you? i know this is not the place for asking such things but iv tried EVERYWHERE and i mean everywhere i can think of and no one knows anything -_- im just looking at getting a new one and all i wanted to know was if the one im looking at was any good for skyrim seen as thats the newest game i have for PC (console gamer) If you have no intrest simply ignore this. Thank you for your time. Again sorry to disturb youBrenton239 (talk) 23:12, January 6, 2017 (UTC)

Yes here it is. sorry if this is not where your suppose to place talk stuff i cannot firgure this thing out -_- i just make minor edits here dont pay much attention to the more in depth stuff for the moment xD https://www.jbhifi.com.au/computers-tablets/laptops/lenovo/lenovo-ideapad-110-a8-15-6-laptop/320565/ according to a review the battery only lasts about 2 and a half to 3 hours and given my limited expearicnce with computers in genreal (only ever had 1 and it was almost always plugged in) would you say that is an alright battery time? (as opposed to the 15 hours advertised but even i will admit i did not beleive it when he told me but eh dosent much bother me) Again sorry for all this trouble and making a hash of the talk screen -_-Brenton239 (talk) 00:12, January 7, 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for your help. and yes while i would like a tower sadly i lack anywhere to put it plus i like the moveability of a laptop and i lack a screen thats not a box haha. while i like the look of the acer and would get it due to the I5 (its good from what little iv read and actually understand) sadly its on amazon though i live in australia which is a nightmare to post to and also after currency conversion the price of that laptop for me would be (ill just check) $754 for me, add onto that the 3 year warranty and we are looking at a grand laptop here. But actually in your currency (assuming its US) the laptop im looking at would only be $436.64 not counting warranty. Australia always gets the crap seconds in the tech and internet department... it also seems i forgot to tell you that im not looking to run the newer special edition skyrim, just the old skyrim from 2011 as shipped with the anthrology edition. and im not looking to run it on high specs ether. skyrim is pretty much the newest game im going to play on it and the main one is space engineers, this is the reason i prefer console to PC... i know PC is better because its more powerful but you pay for that... at least with a console, if i put the disk in, i know im not going to need to spend $500 to get it working. its just the way i prefer it and i know i miss out on a lot like that but thats the situration im in. ANYWAY back to the laptop, knowing its price comparrision to you ($436) is that alright standards? the guy also told me it had been reduced down from the $750 mark ($546.71) So to sum up, i want to play the orgnial skyrim, on any settings really (if i can get same as a console ill be happy, if slightly over. ill be over the moon) but im guessing it will be able to run my main goal of space engineers? Again im so UNBELEIVABLY sorry about all this hastle, another reason i like console hehe xD but like i said, for $436 your currency is that alright? i would get the desktop if i could but sadly i cant... and just after setting location to australia iv (un)suprisingly found they dont post the power the case the card or the windows 10 to me. one day i will be able to get one... its just not in the forseeable future. Again sorry to have made a text wall mess like this all over your lovely talk walll -_- my extreme appologys.Brenton239 (talk) 01:33, January 7, 2017 (UTC)
EDIT: i also seem to have forgot to mention the size on the acer was only 256 SSD (im guessing thats its hard drive for storage?) that seems a bit small in my opinion too, not that it matters...... again, sorryBrenton239 (talk) 01:37, January 7, 2017 (UTC)
And this is why i prefer console gaming.... Oh and by moveability i meant like i can pick it up and take it into the kitchen or out to show my mum something, the screen is with the computer and i dont have to replug it in and stuff. it runs on a battery with the screen with it. thats what i meant... oohhh what to do what to do.... stuff like this makes my head hurt -_- i may be a teenager but i have no clue about computer stuff. Oh when i was in town yesterday looking at other computers i also saw this one. oh wait.... ok, out of these four, which is the best of these four
Urgh iv looked for a chart to compare processors but i cannot find on anywhere. iv read intels pentium is the base market like for its processors (the newer I5 and 7 models are to expensive for a laptop im after so they are out i think... i dont know) but i dont know where AMDs A6 or A8 fits... these are the specs for space engineers on recomended settings anything that gets close to this will do
  • OS: Microsoft Windows 7 (latest SP) 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Quad Core i5 @ 2.5 GHz (or AMD equivalent)
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 660 Ti 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 10 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX® compatible on-board
  • Additional Notes: No internet connection required to play the game
thats the recomended but not the minium. URGH ALL THIS STUFF JUST DOSE MY HEAD IN! i cannot begin to tell you how sorry i am for roaping you into this :( Brenton239 (talk) 03:12, January 7, 2017 (UTC)

Hold Guard

Hey Atv,

Thanks for the info, I often fall back to some comment you left on my talkpage (especially the "reference" one in my archive) when editing, because I simply can't remember it myself haha.

Speaking of which -- I'm fairly certain that there is like a category or page explaining most ways to edit (aka, puting in templates, references, those things) but I've been unable to find it. Does it exist? And if so, could you give the link on my talkpage? And if not, could that be a useful information page?

Thank you,

Blademaster Jauffre (talk) 15:17, January 12, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Mind Shriven Horse

I'm not entirely certain, though it may be likely, as they are re-issuing some discontinued items in the crown crates. For example I won the Frost Mare today. I didn't find the mind sriven horse in the list of available rewards you can purchace with crown gems, It is possible the Anon may have won it through the little crown crate card game though. I added a confirmation tag, when i fixed their edit just incase. The Cat Master (talk) 06:24, January 16, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Renames

UESP is basically our competitor. People agree that UESP is the better source for Elder Scrolls Lore. You can literally look up "Where is the best place to find elder scrolls lore" and the first thing to pop up is a post from gamefaqs saying UESP is the better source. Someone commented and said the TESwiki is 100x worse. That's not good. We should offer the same amount of content than UESP if we want to be a better source by having specific pages for lore and games. In my opinion and I don't want to brag but, our lore pages are better than theirs because it's more organized and includes more info that theirs. There may be some cities that lack enough lore but I make it up by maybe adding a card from legends that relates to it like in Blackrose, or by adding holidays, architecture, geography, or cuisine like in Alcaire or Whiterun. I add something similar to disambiguations, I put a By Game section and have the links to that location in different games there. For these articles, I try to add as much as possible and I'm sorry it's not what you want. I'm just trying to help. --Vincentius1 (talk) 02:41, January 17, 2017 (UTC)

Okay I understand now. I'll try to keep to a minimum then. --Vincentius1 (talk) 03:00, January 17, 2017 (UTC)
I'm mean there's stuff that can be added into these pages. From what I know, we can add the name of inns, merchants, and whoever rules that city. If it's related to the main quest like Corinth or Eldenroot than that can be added. --Vincentius1 (talk) 23:46, January 20, 2017 (UTC)

Two questions about editing for disambiguated links

Hi, the other day, you posted on my page (I think), "Just keep in mind that we don't like to leave disambiguated links open on articles..." I understand what you were referring to, with your example about Jarl's Longhouse (Falkreath), but I was wondering what it means to leave the links "open." Also, does this mean that if the page is for Skyrim and includes an ambiguous link that could go to Skyrim or other games, would it be inappropriate of me to redirect the page away from the disambiguation page? I know I have in the past, so I want to make sure if that's OK.

Missing TP archive

I just noticed that my most recent talk page achieve has been deleted. There was one which i asked to be deleted because i messed up and ended up with an empty one when i created an older archive, which was taken care of, but the one i made a month or so ago with messages from the past year is also gone. Is there any way possible to bring it back. If not that's cool. The Cat Master (talk) 21:02, January 27, 2017 (UTC)

RE: Activity

I understand your concerns, you are right. I have been less active on the wiki recently than I have been in the past. I am once again starting to patrol, and I've reverted a few vandal edits.

Admittedly part of my inactivity stems from my interest. ESO has not had any significant content added since the Dark Brotherhood DLC, but with the recent "Discover the Next Chapter" announcement coming tomorrow my interests have been renewed. I will do my best to increase my large content edits as well, and I have a lot of info to add for the new Player Housing characters on the PTS.

I will do my best to edit and patrol the wiki regularly for the rest of the year, so therefore I believe my activity within the coming weeks will be more than sufficient for me to remain patroller. ☞ Rim < Talk | Updates | Edits > 19:47, January 30, 2017 (UTC)

Dragon page names

I saw you undid a bunch of edits about dragon name translations to English in Skyrim. There's no source in-game for them (i.e a book saying "Dragon X's name translates to Y in English"), you need to use the Dragon alphabet provided in-game (http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Language, http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Language:_Myth_no_More, among others) and translate them yourself. The ones listed on the pages you reverted were accurate translations as far as I could see.

Example: Sahloknir, which you reverted:

Sah: Phantom (part of the Spectral Clone Shout used by the Greybeards use in Way of the Voice) 

Lok: Sky (part of the Clear Skies Shout)

Nir: Hunt (part of the Aura Whisper Shout)

So we can determine his name translates to Phatom-Sky-Hunt using in-game info, as for the other dragon names. DRAEVAN13 18:07, February 4, 2017 (UTC)

Daggerfall

Hey Atvel,

Not sure I entirely understood what you meant, did you want to know if I have Daggerfall and am able to play it? If so, yes, I am. I tried taking screenshots, but apparently taking Daggerfall screenshots is a pain in the rear and since most explanations are in English and what not, I'm not making a lot of progress. I have some things ready for Daggerfall, but my lack of knowledge of templates also keeps me from adding them on the wiki.

Long story short, I do think I'd be able to help, but it depends on the matter we're working with. Blademaster Jauffre (talk) 23:39, February 5, 2017 (UTC)

On this thread (http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:962872), a user pointed out there are square mile sizes listed on nearly each province page. However they're all unsourced, and I can't find anything in-game to support that. Should we remove them? DRAEVAN13 13:15, February 8, 2017 (UTC)

I've read the 2 TES novels, and the province sizes aren't mentioned. I'm going to look through the page history and see who added them, and check if they added unsourced info to other pages and ask where they got that info, assuming they're still active. DRAEVAN13 17:00, February 8, 2017 (UTC)
I found it, this guy http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/User:Kurtkrusade added them based on "measurements taken with ImageJ and a scaled map". So he guessed based a drawing he made or found? I dunno, but he's not been active in 3 years anyways. DRAEVAN13 17:10, February 8, 2017 (UTC)

Skyrim

Hey Atvel,

I saw your edit on the Skyrim page and since it needs sourcing, I'd be willing to help (when I come across something ofc). Only issue is that the page is blocked.

Now I don't know if you'd be willing to unlock it for adding sources, or if you'd rather keep it locked in fear of more unsourced claims, but if I can help let me know. And if you do decide to keep it locked in the fear of unsourced claims, do I just inform you if I come across any sources related to the page? Or do you think there's another option or something?

I await your response, Blademaster Jauffre (talk) 16:35, February 8, 2017 (UTC)

Don't worry, if I think something's more from an Imperial or Stormcloak perspective, I'll make sure to write it in such a manner.

Template creation help

Do you you know how edit templates in source mode. I am trying to create a new template for an infobox for the new ESO player housing, but the editing system is different than I'm used to and can't quite figure out how it works. I was able to get some parts of the template to work, but I can't get the "name =", image =" and "map =" sections to show up properly, and I also end up with </pre> </noinclude> on the upper left of the page. Also I would like if I would not have to manually enter {{G}} and {{C}} when entering the home prices. You can find an example of my attempt here. I successfully created the infobox templates for the Crown Store, mounts and pets articles, but that was in 2015, before Wikia started using the new system. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. The Cat Master (talk) 19:11, February 8, 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for your help. It looks like the template works ok. The Cat Master (talk) 22:04, February 8, 2017 (UTC)

Poll

Dear Atvelonis,

I would strongly suggest you guys to change the poll, that poll is outdated due to that Skyrim SE has already been realeased, I would suggest to maybe do something like what is your favorite faction, game, race, ect. This is just to keep the wiki up-to-date, thanks

Factual correction

I noticed a mistake on the Markarth page, but cannot change it myself since the page is protected. Imedhnain is listed as Cosnach's nephew, but they are cousins per Imedhnain's dialogue with Lisette.WhenDovCry (talk) 16:33, February 10, 2017 (UTC)
