Bugs and voting[edit source]

Hello there, fellow TESWikian! A few things to discuss with you. First, I have recently made a proposition for the formatting of Bugs on articles. I would greatly appreciate your opinion and suggestions here: F:CT:Flagging bugs. Additionally, two new TESWikians are applying for staff positions. If you have not yet voted, please do at the rollbacker page and the News Team talk page. And give your opinions on Balgog and Senjai. Talos guide you, friend. :D --—Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 06:49, August 7, 2012 (UTC)

RE:Thanks[edit source]

Just be careful before blocking people. Always check the contributions through the vandalism notice board first. This editor happened to be really productive and bold in the past, so this type of edit from him or her was typical. Albeit, it seemed partially destruction, even if not intentionally so. All in all, you're welcome. :) --—Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 02:57, August 13, 2012 (UTC)

I should have paid closer attention to the dates. I assumed they were all recent. Bad, Deyvid. At any rate, even so, the new and old edits appeared to be done by the same person. Either way, we should get in the habit of letting people know why they were banned if it's an iffy situation like this. I know quite a few of us ban without warning or explanation. --—Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 03:03, August 13, 2012 (UTC)

Monobook Theme[edit source]

Hello, I've noticed that with the update to MediaWiki 1.19, your monobook theme that the Monobook Wiki crew has made for you is a bit broken. There is an easy fix to it. To do so, change #content to div#content.

Again, that is change what is shown as #content to div#content – Jazzi (talk) 20:23, August 16, 2012 (UTC)

Done. Thanks. :) Elchzard (talk) 20:51, August 16, 2012 (UTC)
No problem! ^^ – Jazzi (talk) 21:06, August 16, 2012 (UTC)

i dont really know this but randomly in skyrim a guard will say let me guess someone stole your sweetroll which is a reference to fallout 3

Update[edit source]

Since the blog comments have been updated to "Lazy load" autolock requires an update.. --70px-SigN1v.png (30px-SigT1v.png35px-SigG1v.png) 15:50, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks vatsy~~! Just changing around now :) <3 Elchzard (talk) 15:51, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Common.js/autolock.js[edit source]

Hey, just a heads up, in your MediaWiki:Common.js/autolock.js, there is a syntax error related to Joeyaa's 30 day blog comment lock script. While the syntax error is small, it unfortunately breaks other site-wide JavaScript (and global.js). Here's what the first 3 lines should look like:

$(function () {
    function disableCommenting() {
        if (wgNamespaceNumber == 500 && $('#article-comments-ul li').size() > 1) {

The problem is that you're missing the 2nd line that says function disableCommenting() {. If you could just add that missing 2nd line back in when you get the chance, everything should be in working order again.

This same issue happened when someone from the Assassin's Creed wiki copied my version of the script and then tweaked it a little. My version (posted on Community Central) was designed as a bugfix to make the script work with Wikia's new lazy loading feature from a couple weeks ago. — Mathmagician (message wall) 22:00, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Updated! Thanks very much for taking the time to let me know. As you can see above, Vatsa1708 actually informed me of these updates - I haven't been around too much recently so I wasn't aware of them. I just assumed his changes to the script would be correct.
Anyways, changed and credited to you :) Thanks again, Elchzard (talk) 09:23, September 3, 2012 (UTC)
Ah, I didn't see that Vatsa1708 had posted above me, sorry. Anyways, it appears that that change still didn't fix this script :\ -- for example, your blog here hasn't been commented on in over 30 days, so it should be locked if the script is working properly. I've actually just finished moving this script over to the Developer's Wiki at w:c:dev:LockOldBlogs -- you're welcome to use (or make your own local copy of) that version if you'd like. It's fully tested and working. Alternatively, you may wish to contact Vatsa1708 and ask him about his version, as I'm not sure what changes he made or why. — Mathmagician (message wall) 22:42, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

Bugs[edit source]

Hey, is there a policy about game bugs? Energy X 20:05, September 23, 2012 (UTC)

There is. Bugs encountered by players must be reported on the talk page. There, people can confirm these bugs, after wich they can be moved to the page itself. Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 10:27, October 12, 2012 (UTC)

Gunnar[edit source]

Hey Elchzard,

Who were your winners for the Gunnar Glasses? Please let me know so we can send them the prizing. Thanks, Peter 23:12, September 27, 2012 (UTC)

IRC[edit source]

Hey Elch, i have left you a message in the IRC, just so you know. Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 17:12, November 13, 2012 (UTC)

Didn't get it. Can you leave it here, or email me? Elchzard (talk) 21:15, November 13, 2012 (UTC)
Well every time i log on i get booted from the staff channel. The IRC doesn't count me as an administrator anymore. I really don't know why. I tried changing my account stuff but i forgot my account details. Could you help? Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 19:50, December 3, 2012 (UTC)

From Spanish Wikia[edit source]

Hello, I'm a Bureaucrat from Spanish TES wikia, our wikia was very incomplete and I ask you to share images. We will have to create a shared image repository, but need your approval. I have already been in contact with the Staff.

P.S.: Sorry but my English is basic.

IRC[edit source]

Hello: I want to get on IRC. I get to here but dont know what to put for a nick or passoword. Are there instructions somewhere? Thanks. Lydia's Follower (talk) 05:26, November 24, 2012 (UTC)

Nick is a name of your choice, don't worry about password. Elchzard (talk) 06:53, November 24, 2012 (UTC)

Veetor[edit source]

Hey Elch, Veetor just deleted the img File:Emperor Parasol.png because it was "unused". But the image was being used on the page Emperor Parasol. Please check to see if Veetor only deletes images not being used. I hope this didn't happen more often. Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 11:28, December 16, 2012 (UTC)

It wasn't criticism, it was just an observation. Don't become angry... And i wasn't criticizing "the system", this was just something i encountered. You really don't have to become so defensive, i meant nothing bad with it.
Thank you for explaining this to me, i understand now why Veetor deleted that image. I'll just undelete the image the next time. Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 14:16, December 16, 2012 (UTC)

Blog Help[edit source]

Hi, the lowly Jett Cyber here. Can you help me with my blog? I published it and everything, but it is not on the recent blog posts page. I know it published because I got the Opinionator Achievment, and if I go to the recent activity/followed pages page it is there. P.S. I am asking most of the Admins for help, so if an answer is already on my talk-page, you need not reply. Thanks in advance, Oh Great Admin. -Jett Cyber (talk) 20:40, October 20, 2013 (UTC)

Just a reminder[edit source]

Abuse Filter change[edit source]

I changed the Common Vandalism abuse filter because it was stoping edits on pages with the word 'Grapes'. Rappy 00:41, February 21, 2014 (UTC)

Veetor-Bot III[edit source]

Hi Elchzard.. haven't seen you in a while so I just wanted to say: don't know if the Bot is running regularly nowadays as it says on the page. Haven't noticed as I have been deleting unused images in the last weeks and they are now down to just under 30. I'm an image freak so I keep an eye on all images uploaded now and I rename many also... —EbonySkyrim Message! 09:43, February 25, 2014 (UTC)

Hi. No, it's not currently running as the laptop it generally lives on is turned off at the moment. If the number is down to around 30 then I don't think there's any need for it to either. Just let me know if you disagree, and I'll set it off again. :) Elchzard (talk) 22:26, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
Hi Elch! No there is no need for it right now eventhough the number does and will increase at the moment. Many images comes from ESO and it's better if it's handled manually at the moment. I'll keep an eye on it. —EbonySkyrim Message! 06:10, April 14, 2014 (UTC)

Hello[edit source]

Hi there! I realise you are inactive, but if you see this, I was wondering if we could have a chat in private on the wiki's chat feature? Thanks! --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | Tabber Code | Channel 18:16, July 20, 2014 (UTC)

Hey Admin[edit source]

Hey Admin, I have some complaints about this wiki's thread system. First of all, I can't reply to people. I can post on the page with a quote of their comment, but I can't actually connect it to them. What if I'm on a popular thread and something happens to them for a little while so they can't(or have more important things to do) go online? They'd never be able to find my comment. Second, there's no down voting. Yes, I understand that you're trying to avoid down voting rage, but with only up voting, it's extremely biase. Seriously, I once accidentally agreed with someone and couldn't disagree. If you're wondering what I accidentlally agreed to, it was that sailing should be banned. Including crusies, fishing, traveling by boat, and pleasure sailing. Lastly, this one is for the whole wiki: there's no complaint box. Everything needs a complaint box if it's to be improved. Expecially public websites. Wikis, youtube, online games, the whole lot of them. Dragonlover553 (talk) 02:43, July 23, 2014 (UTC)

Can I ask you for some advice?[edit source]

Hi Elchzard,

EbonySkyrim recommended that I talk to you. We're working on a really cool project that builds on top of the Wiki model and makes it much easier to build online knowledge communities. Right now we're focused on the cryptocurrency space but we'll expand from there. You've done a phenomenal job with ElderScrolls. I would really love to get on a Skype call with you and ask for your advice on community building and your opinion on what we're working on.

Can you please send me an e-mail at and we can talk more? I’m sure you’ll love what we’re working on (I can send you a 5 minute video of what the platform looks like in action).

RE:Sorry to miss your message earlier...[edit source]


I have not made the article(s) yet, I was planing to, but got distracted. I will work on them when I have the time to write the article and move the links to the right articles.

Hope to talk soon, good luck and happy editing-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 06:09, July 25, 2014 (UTC)

Which Image[edit source]

Hi, if you didn't get the message I sent to you about the image via PM.  Use this one Starkiller131 (talk) 21:11, July 25, 2014 (UTC)

PS3 Start button[edit source]

My concern is that the image used looks nothing like the actual PS3 start button. It is a right-pointing arrow, not a rectangle. Someone might confuse it for the Select button (which is a rectangle). By not using an image at all, we avoid giving the incorrect impression. Cubears (talk) 23:03, July 26, 2014 (UTC) 

Oh, that's a good point. I see now that the in game image is a rectangle. OK, I guess we should leave it there. No wonder I couldn't find any images of it by itself on the internet. Sorry. Cubears (talk) 23:37, July 26, 2014 (UTC)

Resign[edit source]

I hope this is good enough, and nobody puts the blame on anyone else, I do this of my own free will.

I, Pink Slim, hereby resign as a Chat Moderator for

I will not state my reasons, nor will I give them if pressed.

Impractical Link[edit source]

Hello, I noticed that in Spells (Daggerfall) there's a link to Spider Touch when it would be better if it was Spider Touch (Daggerfall). The page is protected, so only staff member can make the change. Could you look into it for me? TheRaggedCrow (talk) 03:37, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

User keeps reopening thread[edit source]

Hey Elch. The user keeps reopening the thread I had to close it several times now, and since he is the Opening Poster (who, by the way, admitted on being 8 years old), I suggest that you ban him. You banned him previously as well, so I suggest that you may make his ban longer. Pelinal Whitestrake (talk) 23:00, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

Edit: Fixed the title >.< Sorry for my mess up. Pelinal Whitestrake (talk) 23:01, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

User continuously harassing others[edit source]

Hey Elch. The user is constantly harassing people both in the Forums and in talk pages. For example, in he harasses several Users for stating their opinion and directly insults them, for example: "Are you ignorant?"  The same user has also insulted me several times on my talk page. You can see the conversation here: Pelinal Whitestrake (talk) 16:54, August 9, 2014 (UTC)

Feel free to ask me to come into chat for my side of the story. For now, I will leave my argument at this: I am criticizing two users: one for breaking policies and pretending to be an admin to falsifying rules to censor another user, on their own reconfirmation forum, and the other who is not using his forum moderator title properly, by removing comments that question the forum's integrity, as well as not shutting down the forum even though the forum creator was resorting to shady tactics.
It would be best if we spoke in private, anyways, as this incident amongst others is attracting certain attention. You more than likely know what I am talking about when I say that. ForGaroux.png Some Assembly Required! 17:01, August 9, 2014 (UTC)

Need to Talk[edit source]

Hey Elch, could you come in to IRC or wiki chat when you can, please? I want to talk to you about something. (I know a lot of these messages are going around, so if you're busy or don't want to, that's fine.) (talk) 00:35, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

Hey, I'm actually on holiday right now in Italy. I'll be on IRC for a bit now but not for very long. If you want to give me an email address, I'll give you my phone number and we can KakaoTalk or WhatsApp. Up to you though. Just let me know. Elchzard (talk) 07:33, August 11, 2014 (UTC)
Ah, alright, if you've got Skype then my one is on here if you wanna add me: Enjoy your holiday! (talk) 12:35, August 11, 2014 (UTC)

Meeting soon[edit source]

Hi Elch, Flight and I have been talking about getting together for a meeting later this week on the IRC channel, we would be glad if you can attend if you have time. Let me know soon please.. —EbonySkyrim Message! 22:48, August 11, 2014 (UTC)

Saw you are on holiday.. if you are back on monday night it will be then, otherwise we'll inform you of course. —EbonySkyrim Message! 08:21, August 16, 2014 (UTC)
