Welcome, Elchzard!

Hi Elchzard, welcome to the Elder Scrolls Wiki! We're building a collaborative source of information for the Elder Scrolls lore, and we need your help. We saw you making some changes to our articles, and thank you for it. Hope you choose to further this project, and that we'll see you around in the future. If you choose to stay, here are some links to help you out:


Remember that you should always sign your comments on talk and vote pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Elderscrollian! If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the Forum, or ask one for our mentors (Failing that, just ask Timeoin)

Hey Elchzard!

I am looking around some pages, and have found a couple of very, very "strange" categories added by Veetor bot, and therefore ask you to please put the bot on hold until we really can figure out the categorization of the pages. Thanks :)

They are for a quiz which is going up shortly... I'm having a little isp difficulty, the blog I just got to finally publish was supposed to go up before I started building the quiz. (talk) 10:23, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
Not a problem - sorry about that, protocol is to have the blog up first, but when I clicked publish on a separate tab & moved on- it didn't take. (talk) 10:34, October 27, 2011 (UTC)


Kasper Gutman: You're a close-mouthed man?
Sam Spade: Nah, I like to talk.
Kasper Gutman: Better and better. I distrust a close-mouthed man. He generally picks the wrong time to talk and says the wrong things. Talking's something you can't do judiciously, unless you keep in practice. Now, sir. We'll talk, if you like. I'll tell you right out, I am a man who likes talking to a man who likes to talk.

Obviously, if it wasn't you who was looking for me on IRC then this probably all seems a bit silly. –rpeh •TCE 22:56, November 3, 2011 (UTC)

Settlement template

I'm having an issue on changing the settlement template. I've tried to replace the settlement icon with the SVG one, but something happened and it ruined the template. I've tried to undo my change but still nothing changed. Can you take a look at it? Thanks. Here is the SVG icon:SettlementBlackJPulowski (talk) 23:51, November 10, 2011 (UTC)

OK, I've solved it. Looks like google chrome doesn't like wiki. I've tried it with firefox. It's okay right now. Thanks again. :) — JPulowski (talk) 23:54, November 10, 2011 (UTC)


Hey there person I've never met before or talked with in any other wiki or website, how are you doing there stranger? DanMan7308 (talk) 17:48, November 14, 2011 (UTC) DanMan7308

I'm doing quite well thanks for asking totally random person, though I am hesitant of getting Skyrim or this really cool game from a series I used to be obsessed with, maybe you know it? Assassin's Creed Revelations? I heard it is an amazing game but so is Skyrim..hmm.. DanMan7308 (talk) 14:25, November 17, 2011 (UTC) DanMan7308


WHAT DID YOU DO TO THE QUESTS IN SKYRIM I NEED THEM!!!!!!!!! Brody C (talk) 22:50, November 15, 2011 (UTC)


Please can you deal with this user? He keeps uploading UESP content, which is contrary to what we discussed a couple of weeks ago. Thanks. –rpeh •TCE 12:12, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

I'm uploading copyrighted Bethesda content which UESP have taken a screen-capture of. If these two wiki's have reached some soft of accord to not share images, this should be noted in the Upload instructions and also the attribution template should probably be removed. Should this be the case, I still do not agree with replacing the image on the page with this ridiculous message. SuperGiraffe 12:29, November 23, 2011 (UTC)
SuperGiraffe, I would appreciate it if you let messages for me be answered by me, rather than anyone else.
And rpeh, I understand the issue has now been sorted. Thanks for telling me, and feel free to email me about such things in the future. Elchzard (Talking is fun.) 17:11, November 23, 2011 (UTC)


Here's a question for you, Elch:

How do I use that bot? Or is it something only you can do? :P TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 23:35, November 25, 2011 (UTC)

The files are stored on my laptop, so it can only do things when I tell it to currently. If you want me to get it to do something, though, just ask. :) Elchzard (Talking is fun.) 20:04, November 26, 2011 (UTC)

Darkness Returns changes

I have made some changes to the Darkness Returns quest in my Sandbox. I arranged it so the powers stand out more. I think this makes the page more organized. I thought I would run the changes by you before I altered the article. Should you approve, I will then add a delete tag to the Nightingale Shadow page as I incorporated the info from there into my changes. Thoughts? GrandMoffVixen (talk) 06:29, November 26, 2011 (UTC)


Just wanted to give you a heads up that the Skyrim selection is all jacked up. Character's catagory is not selectable, and the list of stuff goes out of the box which makes some of it non clickable.

Have a great day.

Would like to report inappropriate language

An annonymous contributor with the IP address made a change on the Throat of the World page. I reverted/undid the change to the previous edit, but was wondering if there is a ban or something that can be done in addition?

Thanks for your help

Done. :)

I've done some reading and I am trying to figure out where Sithis fits into the whole realm of Gods in the Elder Scrolls games. But I want to make sure I have my facts about the beliefs and legends straight. Reading the page "Sithis (Book)" under the paragraphs within "Content" it comes to my attention there is perhaps an interest spin on the idea of the Adera. First I need to know if I have a rough understanding of Sithis though. Sithis is basically not so much necessarily a being but something of a void and before him was nothing "stasis" (and or is he the same nothingness as well?) . Then to my understanding Sithis took the nothing and created the opportunity of endless possibilities (like ideas, with this also having the possibility never to materialize) letting them drift into the nothing and fade away gradually becoming nothing. Continuing in this fashion until one of these possibilities/ ideas "became jealous and did not want to die" than manifested itself becoming Anui-El (Akatosh) and "made friends" being originally other ideas/possibilities that manifested becoming as some mortals would call them "The Eight Divine". Thus disrupting the cycle and the natural order of things (in a sense defying Sithis) creating the first idea of life yet even more than that seeing as how they were "Immortals" I assume making the first creation of Life one without in fact death. Then the Adera basically took hold of every possibility (maybe even more so taking away the possibility of death) for there on wills, creating and generating "everlasting realms of imperfection". The Adrea created what the people of nirn know as the universe, again defying the natural order and Sithis. So Sithis created Lorkhan to "destroy the universe", however it seems that rather than destroy in the sense we might think of it, it however rather means setting back the natural order of things to the cycle (destroying immortality kind of). So Lorkhan deceived the Eight into thinking himself one of them; afterwards he spread the ideas of mortality and thus created Nirn in the process. Then this is where I tried to piece the rest of the puzzle together in the most logical sense I could based off the previous knowledge I had. Once the threat of mortality was created; reestablishing the natural order the Adrea probably caught wind of his "treachery" and tore out his heart casting him to earth however yet he was still successful in his mission of re-setting the balance closer to what the cycle once was... And depending of what you believe the Adera became part of Nirn as well basically meaning they lost immortality as well ?... Kinda sorta? Help please, the Green Mage NEEDS FOOD BADLY!

Renaming templates

Hey man. I saw you renamed Quests to SkyrimQuests. Are we gonna bring all the templates inline with a naming convention? If so we have several others in use that we'll need to update.

  • Template:Books not to be confused with the older Template:Book
  • Most of the specific locations ones
  • Template:Armors not to be confused with the older Template:Armor

Let me know whats up. I was going to start adding the book template to the book pages to start improving them. Also, we have a cat issue with the templates. We currently have templates under: Category:Templates/Infoboxes and under: Category:Infobox Templates ! A lovely mess. I should be on in the AM. Thanks, DLanyon (talk) 05:54, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

That wasn't actually me, but Kacj321 - I was renaming the documentation so it showed up on the page. But anyway, I think that might be a bright idea, to be honest - the naming convention I mean. We'll talk about it when you arrive tomorrow :P
And, I'll sort out the categorisation now.
Cheers! Elchzard (Talking is fun.) 10:53, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

Template problem?

Hi there.

I've been working on the locations pages, but the big gap between the title and the start of the article is still appearing on some pages. Looking at the code, It seems to be a phantom < br > tag inserted between < p > tag

tags? See Is it still being worked on? Jimeee (talk) 14:01, December 19, 2011 (UTC)

==Fast Travel Page==

The Fast Travel (Fycan) Page is finished or at a releasable stage. However, the name "Fast Travel" is now taken by another sub-Page - Travel. Please let me know how to unlink "Fast Travel" from "Travel" Page. Thank you.
Fycan [fahy-kan] @ 10:17, December 28, 2011 (UTC)

I saw this request and moved the information to its proper page. --DLanyon (talk) 08:01, December 29, 2011 (UTC)

Template: Bugs

I thought your modification was a mistake because they looked so bad,  PS3  .
However, adding Patch behind the logo might make sense. Could we put it in form of maybe: PS3 (v1.03)? and not -{{{n}}}? When I first saw it I thought someone was trolling, sorry.
Also, How do you intend to create logo which represents a Bug which occur from Patch B to Patch C? (Does not appear in Patch A & D). Is the new logo going to be really long?
Fycan [fahy-kan] @ 18:50, January 5, 2012 (UTC)

I still am not getting the picture regarding what they're supposed to look like. I think these 3 Logos are well used in Page like Honeyside (Bugs) where there are Sections for Current Bugs & Officially Patched Bugs (where Patch Version is mentioned). If you don't mind, I'd like to know how these logos are to be used?
Fycan [fahy-kan] @ 19:19, January 5, 2012 (UTC)
Ah, it looks good. But what's gonna happen if Patch 1.05 comes out and fixes only 2 Bugs. Wouldn't we have to modify all these logos? Is there a bot that can do it? If you make it so the Template PC still has its original look while IF Function allows for your look then I think it will be great.
Fycan [fahy-kan] @ 19:54, January 5, 2012 (UTC)
Alrighty, thank you Elchzard. I actually meant do we have to manually change each of them every time a new Patch arrives and said Bugs still persist. Anyways, let's give it a try.

Hello. Could you take a look at Find the Dog Outside Falkreath please? It need to be rolled back about 3 or 4 edits back. Cheers LeeVEGETA talk 20:15, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

Bot Question

Hey Elch. This page shows some interesting features of that auto-patrol bot. The person was banned by the bot for the spam image (was pornography). However, it didn't automatically remove the picture. Is there something we can do about this? TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 11:36, January 8, 2012 (UTC)

Here you go

Hey guys, I've noticed that the Morrowind section of the wiki seems to be falling behind the other sections of the Wiki. There are pages that need creating, catergorys that need to be added and we are lacking pictures. If we completely finished the Morrowind section of the wiki our page count would be in the 20,000's. I know that many of you will be busy with Skyrim but please renember to pitch in. Thanks. Commander Faol (talk) 16:45, January 8, 2012 (UTC)

Abuse filter false positive

Hey, you seem to be the person who edits the abuse filter frequently on this wiki, so I'm just letting you know that there was a false positive here - looks like the smiley at the end of the edit triggered, blocking someone who shouldn't have been blocked, so I've unblocked. -- RandomTime 20:18, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

New Youtube Channel

Okay i made a new youtube channel and email, email= (cause TESWIKI already taken(not by tim, i asked him)) youtube= TheElderScrollsWiki, kai said elderscrollswiki was better but it was already taken... yea same pass for both email and youtube.

G0LD3NF1RE Questions Goes Here 00:53, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, cheers Gold. And the name of the series is "The Elder Scrolls", so yours is good! :) Elchzard (Talk to me.) 07:07, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

Abuse Log

Hey Elch ... Um, there are some problems with the Abuse Log. I dont really understand how it works, so I'm letting you know, and hope that you do. Special:DeletedContributions/Trevor_O'Hare is the contribution in question. Sorry :( TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 04:51, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Elchzard i have a question for you. In Skyrim I was doing a bit exploring and encountered bandit camp near Whiterun. Now I cleared it and I went small distance from it and got atacked by Redguard female Ice Mage (apprentince or adept not sure which). She had novice ice spell tome on her. But now I saw a dead imperial woman surounded by candles near her and I was interested if you know about this event as I am unable to find any article(not just on this wiki but internet vise) or video about this hapening in Skyrim. Thanks in advance. 16:52, January 22, 2012 (UTC)

Extra Work

I know I already said this on my page but to reiterate, I'm sorry if I've been causing you extra work, that is never my intention. Winnersusedrugs (talk) 00:12, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

Multiple Edits

I'm trying really hard not to do any multiple edits, and to make each edit more substantial. Just wanted you to know I'm making the effort since our conversation :) Have a good one! Winnersusedrugs (talk) 00:38, January 27, 2012 (UTC)

Gonna start editing the pages with new pictures per the new standard of having our item and weapon screen shots w/o the stat table. Just letting you know in case things get crazy. I will continue to try and consolidate my edits as much as I can. 01:22, February 1, 2012 (UTC)

This is a very crazy bug

This is a very crazy bug :


I see you removed the fanart in the Chicken page. I was wondering if it's against the rules to create a page dedicated to list them and their original author, rather than including them in regular pages. Can I do that?

Ronlaw (talk) 21:04, February 1, 2012 (UTC)

No fanart in normal articles, I'm afraid. You can include it on your userpage though. That's all I can allow. Elchzard (Talk to me.) 21:08, February 1, 2012 (UTC)


Hello there! Your opinion is requested at Forum:CT:Categorization of the wiki. Love to hear from ya! :) --— Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 12:02, February 6, 2012 (UTC)

What happened?

Tim told me afterwards how you were kinda stressed. Still, I don't think it's very nice being called a douchebag over a joke. I've known you a while Elch, heck....I even voted for you becoming Admin. But since then you've gained an air of superiority that comes across as you being quite rude. Kicking me from the Staff chat just for asking if you were ok? That was petty. It also was annoying for other staff members who had to be INVITED to the staff chat by Tim and Kacj. Staff does not consist of you and Tim. It includes all Patrollers, OP's and Admins. I really hope you realize that.... Commander Faol (talk) 00:09, February 8, 2012 (UTC)

2 ;)


A rather personal message for you this time Elch! Just wanted to use this edit to say - thanks :) Thanks for not giving up on the wiki when it would have been all too easy to do so! If it wasnt for your help - we wouldnt be anywhere near as good as we are now. So - just letting you know that I seriously appreciate it! Incidentally, this is edit number 29,998 :D


is everyone here an asshole? srry for my profanity Brooklynguido42


Hi I was on the Cyrodiil page making edits under Politics section. I was adding links to other pages but when i was finished and hit Publish a note came up saying I was vandalising. I asked TombRaiser and she said to it may have been a false-positve reading and told me to ask you because you created that filter. Could you clear things up for me. Thanks ChampionofCyrodiil (talk) 02:56, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

Hiya, thanks for the report. I've fixed the issue, (I hope) and shall have Sactage look at it later. Elchzard (talk) 07:14, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

Requesting permission to add videos on wikis

Hi Elchzard,

I would like to know if I could have permission to add links to my YouTube videos to wiki pages. I find that video walkthroughs are very useful, easy to understand and offer great visual support. If used correctly (in a non-spammy manner, obviously), having videos around can greatly enrich this site's content. Sometimes, reading a a walkthrough isn't enough, and the user could prefer to watch a quick video instead!

I constantly upload Skyrim videos to my channel, at, these videos range from walkthroughs to lore, among other things.

Hope to hear from you soon :)

Best Regards!


MediaWiki:Common.js Change


I have hidden a reference in your Common.js file that was referring to cvu.js.

That code is old and buggy, and lately has been throwing errors on a number of important site functions - such as editing and ad delivery - because wgPageQuery is no longer a page variable.

You are, of course, free to fix it, remove it completely, or plan some other course of action. I just wanted to fix the error from breaking other things now (and it shouldn't have been doing it's specific job anyway since it was broken).

Hope this heads up helps! --daNASCAT @fandom 17:44, June 12, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, thanks for the heads up - Sorry for any issues it's caused at HQ :P. It's not my script, so I guess I'll just remove it for now and we'll manage manually. Again, thanks for making me aware of these changes, and apologies for any bother. Cheers, Elchzard (talk) 20:50, June 12, 2012 (UTC)

hi elchzard

i dont know anything about editing pages but found a couple of alchemy recipes not listed at this link

I wanted to reach out regarding the quiz and images that XD1 has been putting up. I'm sorry that you guys weren't let know in advance. Not an excuse, but this is a sponsored quiz that was meant as a fun thing for the community to celebrate the release of the new DLC, and we assumed since quizzes had been done here in the past that they were something you were all okay with. As for the images being used, they were all tagged as fair use upon upload, so there shouldn't be any issues there. I'm sorry for the confusion, but we would like to move forward with the quiz. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks Sena@fandom 21:59, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

thanks for your understanding, the last time was really a blog issue, the notice XD1 posted didn't go live properly. If you want the blog to be on the mainpage we'd be happy to have you tag it, we won't change it since it's something you've edited, but would of course love to be featured. And we are putting in a very strict policy about quizzes, I assure you that our edits were in good faith. Sorry for stress or confusion, and thanks for bearing with us and giving us the benefit of the doubt. Sena@fandom 22:12, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for being so open to talking it out :) and please don't blame XD1, he was just trying to do what what he was being asked to do, he's a great guy and would never knowingly cause harm. Thanks again for working through this with us, AND for having an epic wiki, you guys are awesome, which is why Bethesda wanted to host a quiz here!!

Sena@fandom 23:06, June 26, 2012 (UTC)


My apologies for surprising you with the sweepstakes I am launching on Elderscrolls. This is actually part of the Quiz and a Blog related to the new DLC we are promoting for a campaign for Bethesda.

Cool story. Now if you could address my original point, and remember to sign your posts using ~~~~? Elchzard (talk) 00:55, June 27, 2012 (UTC)


My name is Adam Carey and I am the Director of Ad Operations for Wikia. I've worked at Wikia for 3 years since August 2009. Today, I've spent most of my time setting up various components for a rather extensive ad campaign for Bethesda for their new DLC pack. This is a rather terrific win for us since the last campaign we ran for Bethesda back through Aug-Dec 2011. My job is to get these sort of ad packages up, running and tracked. My apologies that you weren't informed about these various elements going live. Please do not remove these pages as this is a rather sensitive and costly ad campaign sold through our East Coast office.

Sorry about not responding faster. Although I've been working at Wikia for a long time, my expertise is more on the advertising front than the wiki front.

Adamarket (talk) 01:12, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

Okay. I'm glad we've got things sorted, then.
Would you mind if I moved these two pages to somewhere they will not interfere with our article content? Their function will remain precisely the same, but it'll keep me and the rest of the adminstrative team happier.
I assume you also have some kind of blog planned to advertise this sweepstake to the community? I'm happy to direct you to the category needed to apply it the mainpage if that's needed, although I won't be exactly happy about it.
If you could ensure in future, too, that we are informed of large campaigns like this. Thanks, Elchzard (talk) 01:17, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

I guess it was a glich but had her while i was marrying someone, my game glitched (I don't know how) and then it gave her the wedding band, and bam, we were married

I don't think i could repeat it even if i tried

Thanks & IRC

Thanks! I took screencaps from the most HD vids I could find and did a proper cut-out to make PNG's of it, editing off only the worst edges. I'll make sure to drop by IRC someday soon then. :)

Community Run Giveway

Hi Elchzard,

My name’s Peter and I’m Wikia’s Programming Manager. We have an exciting promotional opportunity that we are making available to a few highly valued Wikia gaming communities - a giveaway of 3 pairs of digital eyewear glasses from Gunnar. We’d like to offer you and your fellow Admins the chance to run a sweepstakes/giveaway contest of your choosing here.

I’m not sure how familiar you are with giveaway formats, but you are free to choose the format of your liking. The most common and simplest type of giveaway is to ask your users to enter the contest through either a Tweet or a Comment on the blog post on a related topic (i.e. “How long do you stare at your computer?”). Then you can select the winner(s) at random.

Or (and we encourage this), you can get more creative and hands-on with it -- whatever you and your community will have the most fun with.

We will supply you with the creative assets to run the giveaway and we’ll handle sending the prizing. The only stipulations we have for the contest is that it be US and UK only and include a brief description of the eyewear, which we will supply you with, to avoid any misinformation about the glasses.

Let me know your thoughts as soon as you can please, as the contests will begin late July.


Peter@fandom 23:57, July 3, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Peter,
Thanks for your message. I'll discuss with the rest of the team, but as far as I'm concerned, we'd be very interested in taking part in this. :)
Do you have Skype, or use IRC? It would be nice to discuss this further with you. My Skype name is "Elchzard," under the name Harry. Feel free to add so we can talk at greater length about this.
Thanks, Elchzard (talk) 09:04, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
Having spoken to both HaLo2FrEeEk and Flightmare about this, I think I'm safe to say we're happy to participate in this. :) Elchzard (talk) 13:41, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Possible Need of Edit

I was looking back over at the page for Daedric Armor for Skyrim, and noticed on the page a mention of the Vigilants of Stendarr attacking PC's on sight for wearing full sets of the armor, and that trainer would not provide services as well. There have been mentions on the talk page that the so called disadvantages that were posted about the armor are at the very least false and potentially only what one person believes after a possible error on their part in game.

If at all possible, due to not having the ability to edit page myself, could that portion of the article be taken out unless there is somthing to actually confirm it against what I have seen myself and what a few others in the talk page have reported for themselves.

Axel Shiokawa (talk) 07:00, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Done. I've also moved the protection settings down for the page - You should now be able to edit it. :) Thanks for letting me know :} Elchzard (talk) 09:32, July 5, 2012 (UTC)


Hey, sorry to be so anal, could you update The Elder Scrolls Wiki:IRC to include CheatCodeChamp to the operator list? I'd do it but the page is (duely) locked. Cheers. Senjai (talk) 07:04, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, didn't realise he wasn't there! Thanks for letting me know :) Elchzard (talk) 09:32, July 5, 2012 (UTC)


Uh, so what is the result of this forum I made? Everything is as before, right?

And another question i s besides you, who are this wiki's bureaucrats? Energy X 12:12, July 13, 2012 (UTC)

If you're referring to F:CT:Capitalization, Deyvid raised a valid point, meaning that for now we'll be sticking to the in place and adequate policy. Not enough people voted for a change to be made. If you'd like to propose the change again, please feel free to create another consensus track forum with a more detailed explanation of how you envision capitalization here.
Timeoin and Deyvid Petteys are both also bureaucrats, in addition to myself.
Can I also please request that you take a look at {{Signature}}? Your sig code is rather extensive. Elchzard (talk) 12:19, July 13, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I have been itching to try it out (makes it smaller). Thanks, so for other wikis I do the same, right?
Energy X 14:40, July 13, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, either you make {{Signature/Energy X}} on other wikis you use regularly, or you manually sign your name with [[User:Energy X|]] and ~~~~~ (that's 5 ~) to give you a timestamp.

Hello Elchzard! I have a question: Do you need Pywikipedia to change all outdated HTML tags to the current HTML5 ones (like you did with your bot)? If so, can you tell me how exactly to do that? I already have pywikipedia, so i'd just need the instructions to change the html (if they aren't too complex). Thanks in advance. — Mousekat 06:06, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Mousekat. Yep, I used pywikipedia :)
I'm not actually at home this week, so I'll tell you exactly what needs to be done when I get the time to type something out properly. Sorry to keep you waiting, Elchzard (talk) 09:33, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

Messed up coding with Infoboxes

Hey, Elchzard, I just wanted to let you know that Veetor-Bot III has messed up a lot of the infobox templates. Everything that was set to change the categories has now removed the "Game: Image Needed" category, as well as all other categories that would automatically be added with the infobox. Also, many of the newly renamed categories were not included inside the <noinclude> </noinclude> tags and were therefore adding template categories to all pages. So far I have fixed all of the Morrowind, Skyrim, and Knight of the Nine infobox templates, but, the rest of them are still messed up. What to do now? Continue fixing it one by one? —TombRaiser SPEAK! 02:24, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

Asdfadfasdfasdfasdfasdf. I'm really sorry. I'm not at home right now so I made these changes in an unconventional manner for myself. I can fix it, but I'm literally just about to go out... Give me maybe 5 hours and it can all start to be fixed. Thanks, Elchzard (talk) 06:51, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

The map of Skyrim

Hi, Elch!

Wanted to say, that the map is crashed. Separately templates of the map work, but the last one (this) doesn't. I know that Jgjake2 has made the map but to some reason he is absent for more than a month. Is there any solvement of the problem? We've got the same map, but after MediaWiki was updated it stoped working (so as yours I think..).

PS Sorry for the mistakes if there are any. English is not my mother-tongue...

Sir, edit conflicting me, I see. :) --—Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 23:44, July 31, 2012 (UTC)

I appreciate it. Took me a while to figure out why my new forum topics weren't showing up in the list. No worries. By the way, you might want to archive your talk page. --—Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 23:48, July 31, 2012 (UTC)
