Re:Questions Edit

Hey,

I'm not sure about the capitalization, but I'm leaning towards that we should keep it the way it is in-game.

Regarding the "Old Dwemer Books", I think they can all be grouped into one article. Though I'm not familiar with these items, I'd assume that they can be tabulated, with the columns being the item mentioned in the book and the book's ID. If they all have the same ID for whatever reason, I'd say that it's safe to just make it a list :) Kroq-gar78 (talk) 01:01, August 1, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I agree that the "Old Dwemer Books" should be added on one page in a tabled list. Even though it might seem strange to have names in all caps, we want to create articles that are worded the same way they are in-game, for instance the quest in Morrowind, I'm NOT a Necromancer!, is worded exactly as it appears in-game. :) —TombRaiser SPEAK! 02:18, August 1, 2013 (UTC)
Tomb, you said exactly what I thought you would about the article titles, I almost didn't ask, but wanted to be sure. The Dwemer Books was the real question. They are books, and individual items, but there's really not much to say about them or to justify individual articles IMHO. If anyone sees a need to split the article after it is published I'll take care of it.
The TR book articles are well underway, hopefully by this time tomorrow we'll have all the Bloodmoon and Tribunal books up on the wiki. :) Then its back to magic effects, spells, and scrolls for me.
Thanks to both of you for the quick responses, and happy editing!

I forgot to mention that having a ! character in article names is problematic when attempting to link to them in table headers. Even if the link's ! is enclosed in nowiki tags, it gets interpreted as table formatting and doesn't work. There's a simple workaround for this: just use a standard | and emulate a header by formatting the cell with style="background:#111111; text-align:center" and making the text bold. No reply necessary.

Consensus about "1st" templateEdit

Hello Eganogard, I saw your discussion between a few members about this, if you're interested in leaving your feedback, I have set up a consensus on phasing out the use of the {{1st}} template. —TombRaiser SPEAK! 00:14, August 3, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Game name/leadsEdit

Since a month passed and there were no more responses in the "Keeping leads vs. removing leads" topic, we began to making the changes that we're last agreed upon.

Now, to your suggestions. I'm not sure I agree with adding a disambiguation at the end of every page. Not only is that manually renaming 19,000+ pages but you'd also have to take into consideration pages like Deathbrand (Quest), Deathbrand (Book), Deathbrand Armor. They can't all be named Deathbrand (Drabonborn) and it's already strange having names disambiguated as (Dragonborn quest) and (Dragonborn armor).

What you're suggesting sounds similar to how UESP does their pages, except they do them with namespaces. Even if we decided to change to namespaces, that's a massive amount of change to be done. And, it's not something the bot I run can do, since it only looks at content of pages.

I don't know if anyone has experimented with adding the game name to templates, as far as I know, no one has. But, that is an idea that I think could work well, without the need to disambiguate all the pages on the wiki.

This is just one person's opinion (me) on the matter. You can always bring up your idea in the consensus track forum.

Right now, there are so many things that need to be done maintenance-wise on the wiki, doing everything at once could cause more confusion and frustration, especially when we never know who is going to stick around to help with rolling out the changes. Some people will vote in favor of a change, to later on not be found helping in making changes that they voted in favor of. It's happened before, which is why the wiki is still in a disorganized state. —TombRaiser SPEAK! 18:53, August 4, 2013 (UTC)

Currently, there is no system to announce changes made to policy pages besides creating a forum topic and highlighting the message so that it sends out a notification to all logged in users about the new changes. We did have a "Community Announcement board" a while ago. It was used to notify users of upcoming events occurring in the wiki. It was briefly used to announce that it was time to vote for a new Member of the Month. But, since that was moved back to it's original voting location, the announcement board was removed. MOTM events were really the only thing being announced on the board.
It may be a good idea to bring back the Community Announcement board, so when we do make new changes to policy and style guideline pages all users will be notified via highlighting the topic. I try not to use the highlight feature too often though, because it does notify everyone on the wiki. But in the case of notifying members of policy wide changes, the highlight notification would be put to good use.
As for a list of projects needing completion. There is no official list, but Kroq-gar78 has set up a to-do list, which anyone can take part in. The list is located here: User:Kroq-gar78/TodoList. If you need any clarification on anything listed, you should ask him.
Don't worry about not being in IRC much, it can be distracting when you are trying to work on articles, and I too get distracted and find it difficult to multitask while also carrying on a conversation. :) —TombRaiser SPEAK! 02:03, August 5, 2013 (UTC)

Morrowind! Edit

Hey Dragonage,

I got Morrowind GOTY on Steam a few days ago! :D I think it'll still be a bit longer until I actually figure out what I'm doing, but after that, I'd like to help on whatever you've been working on (mainly images/IDs, since the mechanics and gameplay still might take me a while).

Anyway, I thought I'd let you know. Talk to you later! Kroq-gar78 (talk) 00:47, August 6, 2013 (UTC)

BTW, right after I posted this, I remembered that you had projects on your main userpage ;) I'll look into those. You've done a really good job with the Morrowind articles, by the way. Kroq-gar78 (talk) 23:22, August 6, 2013 (UTC)

WalkthroughEdit

Hi Eganogard. Saw your question about walkthroughs to Tomb. Here is another example of a walkthrough on a Dwarven ruin article that shouldn't be there. :) EbonySkyrim (talk) 05:56, August 7, 2013 (UTC)

Re:Hatreds Heart Edit

Hey,

Is this also the case with Hatred's Soul? I'm going to take your word for it, since I can't use the CS (don't have the PC version). Kroq-gar78 (talk) 15:56, August 7, 2013 (UTC)

Quests Edit

Greetings - Our comment (that the associated quest(s) should be outlined on their own page) is valid. There has not yet been any concensus otherwise. The sandbox you refered to is just that: a sandbox.

We repeat: A link to the quest page is all that is needed, anything else is duplication.DarthOrc (talk) 06:28, August 9, 2013 (UTC)

Apparently not. ──┤ Eganogard talk ├── 22:13, August 15, 2013 (UTC)

Edits Edit

If you have a question about my edits, you can ask me directly on my talk page. --Shockstorm (talk) 21:57, August 15, 2013 (UTC)

I had a general question about the use of categories. I linked to an edit as an example, but it was a something I've been meaning to ask for a while. I saw something, I remembered, and I asked. Regardless, it was a question for an admin to answer. ──┤ Eganogard talk ├── 22:13, August 15, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Hrothmund's AxeEdit

I was planning on getting a copy of Morrowind and its expansions a while back for my computer, but in recent months my computer has really become a piece of junk, so I will probably have to wait until the holidays, since I'm hoping to build a computer. If you can get an image that would be awesome, and either version is fine, whichever you think would be better is fine by me.

Thanks, and words cannot express how awesome of a job you have done on the wiki! —AutoBlood Talk 03:14, August 16, 2013 (UTC)

The image is great but by "Pick up" do you mean that the weapon is usable in Bloodmoon? It's been awhile since I played it on Xbox, so I don't remember, but if it us obtainable, then an infobox containing stats should be added. If I was just mistaken then that image is perfectly good, and then uploading an image from the CS is totally up to you.
Thanks, once again. —AutoBlood Talk 04:32, August 16, 2013 (UTC)
Ok, sorry for confusion. If its not too much trouble, a image of the axe in the CS would be good also. And don't worry, I'm not going to have the in-game pic deleted as it is also useful and a good image.
Thank you very much, and this is kind-of off topic, but that's extremely cool that you met Biafra of the Dead Kennedys and Rollins of Black Flag. Even though I'm 14 and living in the first generation where commercial radio plays little to none of actual music, I extremely enjoy music of all eras and decades. Happy editing! Yes, I read your updates about random stuff and about yourself. I have a bad habit of reading up on people's userpages from time to time. Sorry, if you find that strange. AutoBlood Talk 05:12, August 16, 2013 (UTC)
That's really cool that you get to meet icons from time to time. Thanks for the image also, it's really good. Awesome job on everything Morrowind. That section of the wiki would be no where in the stage it is today without your tremendous help. Thanks. —AutoBlood Talk 18:24, August 16, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Year and daysEdit

Hi Eganogard, thanks for the reply as I didn't know this. :) EbonySkyrim (talk) 07:30, August 18, 2013 (UTC)

Returning?Edit

Are you back on the wiki for now? If so, awesome, all your work on Morrowind has been greatly missed and appreciated.

Hope your back. —AutoBlood Talk 18:21, January 20, 2014 (UTC)
