:Hi. Adding to this, articles (particularly for items) are named with "(Blades)", etc if they appear in multiple sources to avoid any ambiguity. They otherwise don't include a bracketed source as is could conceivably cause confusion if another item, especially if it's unique, said ("Skyrim"), etc and inadvertently mislead someone to thinking it appeared in multiple games. Otherwise, there is no bracketed source as there is no need for disambiguation. There's also the point that not all items, even those one may expect to be common, may be in the following game. For example, Daedric Cuirasses don't exist in Skyrim although they were in the preceding games because they were called Daedric Armor. It would therefore be better to retroactively retitle articles than to predict that there will be a future page for the disambiguation to make sense and have said disambiguation exist without need for several years until the next game. It would also be great if you could elaborate on what you mean when you say "if someone is searching [for something] like cleaving damage the (Game) say[s] the information before they click." Finally, keep in mind that a lot of the operating environment for how the site (and pages therein) functions is dependent on Fandom and not the wiki itself including the features and limitations of the programming languages employed, so some of the policies and guidelines are based around that.

Welcome, Dutyclaus!

Skyrim Logo Large

Hello Dutyclaus, welcome to The Elder Scrolls Wiki! We're building a collaborative source of information for The Elder Scrolls, and we need your help!

We saw you making some changes to our articles and thank you for it. We hope you choose to further this project, and we hope to see you around in the future. If you choose to stay, here are some links to help you out:



I hope you enjoy editing here! If you have any questions, see the help pages or ask one of our administrators.

Blades articles

Hi. Great work on your recent edits! I'd just like to recommend that when creating pages that the links correspond to their correct item and that the summary has all the necessary cursory information including the name of the subject of the page in bold text (eg. "Boots are pieces of armor..."). Thanks. Grey Fox (talk) 09:05, August 13, 2019 (UTC)

Further to this, I would also use caution when adding categories. It can be difficult to remove them if it is wrongly applied, as they require the attention of an admin. Thanks. Grey Fox (talk) 09:14, August 13, 2019 (UTC)
Hello, new articles for the Blades indeed are needed, but I recommend to read our Style guide first before continuing. Also if possible use the templates above the page creation, they will add the article's layout automatically. --Rupuzioks (talk) 19:05, August 13, 2019 (UTC)

Hi. Adding to this, articles (particularly for items) are named with "(Blades)", etc if they appear in multiple sources to avoid any ambiguity. They otherwise don't include a bracketed source as is could conceivably cause confusion if another item, especially if it's unique, said ("Skyrim"), etc and inadvertently mislead someone to thinking it appeared in multiple games. Otherwise, there is no bracketed source as there is no need for disambiguation. There's also the point that not all items, even those one may expect to be common, may be in the following game. For example, Daedric Cuirasses don't exist in Skyrim although they were in the preceding games because they were called Daedric Armor. It would therefore be better to retroactively retitle articles than to predict that there will be a future page for the disambiguation to make sense and have said disambiguation exist without need for several years until the next game. It would also be great if you could elaborate on what you mean when you say "if someone is searching [for something] like cleaving damage the (Game) say[s] the information before they click." Finally, keep in mind that a lot of the operating environment for how the site (and pages therein) functions is dependent on Fandom and not the wiki itself including the features and limitations of the programming languages employed, so some of the policies and guidelines are based around that.
