Books formatting - Quest[edit source]

Hi GreyFox, I noticed that you changed formatting at Quest section of Greymoor book articles. On older online articles here, it still looks the same as the edit you fixed. It's more than year since I work on books so if I miss something and this rule has changed I'll be happy for information. I'm planning to edit more Greymoor books, so I'd like to do it correctly. --FrisyN (talk) 14:55, August 10, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for your answer. Well ok. It's just confusing when articles aren't consistent, even though I compare it with Atv's previous Greymoor articles or corrections.(Which I see as a clue when I'm not sure). I would help, but it's important to know what's correct.--FrisyN (talk) 20:22, August 10, 2020 (UTC)

RE: Stormcloaks[edit source]

A single revert is not an edit war. I even provided an explanation for the revert.
Blademaster Jauffre (talk) 19:41, August 25, 2020 (UTC)

Edit war: "An editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page". One revert isn't three. It isn't an edit war just because I reverted a singular edit. I provided an explanation for this singular revert. I don't know why you point out the three reversion rule to me here, since I only reverted once. The other revert was performed by Ottoman Hold, and I don't see a comment on his talkpage about an "edit war".
If every single revert is instantly considered an "edit war" then why does the "revert" option even exist? I have followed the policies and guidelines in my revert. I've reverted once, and provided an explanation for the revert - we cannot observe the statement of the article in battle. You can even see it in the page history. My last edit before that revert was in october of 2019. By no definition was this an edit war. PuceAardvark made a claim -> Claim lacked sources, so I reverted -> PuceAardvark reverted my revert -> Ottoman reverted PuceAardvark's revert.
Blademaster Jauffre (talk) 08:15, August 26, 2020 (UTC)
Just because I've broken policy in the past does not mean that every time I revert a bad edit means I must be edit warring. I don't know how you came to that conclusion. Why do you think I didn't revert PuceAardvark's revert of my reversion? Because I was done with the whole "edit war" nonsense, but I guess it follows me anyway. I'm sorry, but the mere accusation that this was edit warring on my part, just because I've been involved in edit wars in the past, is outright ridiculous.
The definition of edit warring on the wiki is: "If your edit is reverted even once, this is not justification to revert it back; this is called "edit warring", as quoted from our policies. By this definition, I'm not the one edit warring, PuceAardvark is. A singular reversion is not considered edit warring. A reversion of a reversion is. I've already shown you the page history, which shows I never reverted a reversion, I merely reverted a false statement from an edit.
If you could tell me how my singular revert is considered "edit warring" on my part, I'll gladly accept it. But since both definitions of the rule - both Wikipedia's and TES Fandom's - support my claim that I wasn't edit warring, I'd really like to know why you consider otherwise. I have followed policy in its entirety. You cannot expect me to have the ability to look into the future and know, before it even happened, that Aardvark would revert my reversion of his false statement.

Formatting[edit source]

I apologize for causing you to go through so much formatting. Every time I make edits or updates there always seems to be a mistake that needs fixing. I apologize. --Kajune (talk) 04:32, August 28, 2020 (UTC)

I'm sorry again for any new mistakes you keep having to fix. I know you said it wasn't a big deal but I really hope in the future I can do proper edits and stop taking up your time with fixes. I'm sorry. --Kajune (talk) 12:04, September 7, 2020 (UTC)

I did an oopsie[edit source]

I was trying to archive my talk page, and I didnt know how, so I created https://elderscrolls.fandom.com/wiki/User_talk:PuceAardvark/Archive_1?redirect=no and deleted everything on my talk page and moved it to there. But then I saw the option to archive the talk page next to the edit button. And I tried renaming  https://elderscrolls.fandom.com/wiki/User_talk:PuceAardvark/Archive_1?redirect=no to "I accendintaly created this" so someone would delete it. and then it created a complete nother user: https://elderscrolls.fandom.com/wiki/User_talk:I_created_this_accendentaly and added all my messages to that talk page. I am so confused right now and idk who to contact since both admins are away. I really dont want to get blocked for switching accounts since I did all this by accident. Can you please delete https://elderscrolls.fandom.com/wiki/User_talk:PuceAardvark/Archive_1?redirect=no and properly archive my talk page?

PuceAardvark (talk) 05:29, September 14, 2020 (UTC)

Yes I have Discord, but I don't remember my username numbers. I'll login and send them to you tomorrow. I'll also join the TESWiki server.

RE:Spaces and references[edit source]

I'll try to remember the references one. As for "a space being left at the end of paragraphs", can you give me an example? I don't know how I did this? --Kajune (talk) 02:51, September 15, 2020 (UTC)

Okay. Next time I edit a page, I'll try my best to avoid them. For your sake, if anything. --Kajune (talk) 03:58, September 15, 2020 (UTC)

RE: Image captions[edit source]

Hi. I undo that revision over in the Bugs (Arena) page. And sorry for my grumpy & snark outbursts in the edit summaries, my short temper got the better of me, but I’m my more usual calm (though also anxiety) self. Anyway, if a gallery section of screenshots on a bug page is inappropriate and you (or another mod) needs to delete them later, I’ll understand.

Re: Animunculi (Skyrim)[edit source]

I will put back the Background header, didn't even realise I took that off. As for quests, I decided it would be best if that heading be removed completely. Animunculi are technically "creatures" and "enemies". That would mean that if we put quests for animunculi we would need to do the same for bandits, falmer, wolves etc. That would be very unnecessary and very irrelevant since they are all just possible enemies in the quest and don't usually affect the outcome in anyway. Wouldn't you agree? Animunculi is more of a lore article anyway, and should be kept like that.

PuceAardvark (talk) 02:57, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

I did not actually add the quests header to start with. Thats the reason it was in the Skyrim Pages Missing Data category to begin with. I figured If I removed it then, everyone would get triggered, so I added quests. Now I realize it is largely uneccessary. Anyway, It doesn't matter anymore I guess. Problem Resolved. cept I gotta add that background info now XD.

Sheogorath[edit source]

Does Sheogorath require a Skyrim page? I know I created an Oblivion one, but is a Skyrim one necessary? I ask because I recently found out User:Deyvid Petteys had deleted the Skyrim one several years ago, because "Insufficient coverage to warrant individual article." What are your thoughts? --Kajune (talk) 21:46, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

Okay, I'll try to create a Skyrim page for Sheogorath. I hope it turns out all right. --Kajune (talk) 00:24, September 19, 2020 (UTC)

RE: Multiple references[edit source]

Thanks for teaching me how to do it. I was going to try when editing Arden-Sul's page but I couldn't figure out how. Now I know. Thanks again. --Kajune (talk) 00:26, September 19, 2020 (UTC)

Question[edit source]

On the Atvelonis task page, it says "Remove the Category:Morrowind: Enemies from pages, Remove the Category:Online: Enemies from pages, Remove the Category:ESO Morrowind: Enemies from pages." does that mean  remove ALL the pages from those categories, or just specific ones?

PuceAardvark (talk) 01:16, September 20, 2020 (UTC)

I would let the bots do it, but they don't seem to be active at all anymore.
PuceAardvark (talk) 01:33, September 20, 2020 (UTC)

Sheogorath (Morrowind)[edit source]

In case you are wondering, I created Sheogorath (Morrowind) page because the main Sheogorath page appeared to request for its creation. I don't mind if it is deleted. I wasn't aware the page was not needed.--Kajune (talk) 04:54, September 25, 2020 (UTC)

Bot Tasks[edit source]

Is there a reason you revert my edits on the bot page? I do tasks often and it does help with organization, having all tasks in one header.

Enchanting (Oblivion)[edit source]

  1. You put in the gold symbol, not me. So if there was a spacing issue, that was your edit.
  2. I have no idea of what "convention" you speak of. There is nothing in TES:SF which supports your claim. Regardless of convention, it is simply not good grammar to use the symbol this way. It makes perfect sense to use the symbol as a unit of currency, as in "This costs 15 Gold." It makes no sense to replace the word with the symbol. One would never write "Today, the $ went up against the ¥.", one would properly write, "Today, the dollar went up against the yen.".
  3. I agree about player. That was from a previous editor and I'll change that.
  4. "Much gold" is informal English, it is not encyclopedic tone. It also lacks the sense of magnitude that "thousands of" does. Much could mean different things to different people, an actual number, even a rough order of magnitude is more precise and therefore more informative to the reader. That is the point of a wiki, to inform its readers accurately.
  5. " In the future, if you have disagreements about an edit, do not undo the entire edit if it contains otherwise agreeable changes." Except it didn't have any agreeable changes.

As a side note, there should be a difference between "patroller" and someone who feels the need to alter every single edit another contributor makes as you have done to me today. It's frankly oppressive and it makes me feel like you are haunting my steps, discouraging me from further editing the wiki. As another example, except for removing the part about mods, this diff is egregious: a rewording that does not improve readability and does not change the meaning. "does not exist in-game" and " is not present in-game" mean the exact same thing. DaBarkspawn (talk) 00:28, October 11, 2020 (UTC)

The wiki does have an informal "convention" of using the {{G}} template kind of everywhere, although it's not explicitly codified and therefore not something that should be enforced per se. And actually from a readability standpoint it is probably best to only use the template alongside a numerical value. Ideally we would not use images in-line at all, but there isn't really a corresponding Unicode character. —Atvelonis (talk) 01:29, October 11, 2020 (UTC)

Zoomed-out Wayshrines[edit source]

Why were the zoomed-out Wayshrines (Dawnguard) removed? Why didn't you leave the reason on my talk page? Why didn't you even leave it in the undo description? DynV (talk) 19:31, 26 October 2020 (UTC) I added the images because I couldn't remember where the zoomed-in version were in-game. DynV (talk) 19:34, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Thank you, and especially for the notification, but that won't be necessary. DynV (talk) 23:43, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

Knead - Lusty Argonian Maid[edit source]

Question about the undo of the spelling correction. I'll admit I wasn't in game, but I based it on the screenshot of the book that is on the Lusty Argonian Maid V2 page right below the edited text. Is there a difference in spelling between ESO and Skyrim? If so, it seems simpler to start with the correct spelling as the default... I don't have ESO so will take your word for it for that game, but unless that screenshot was not sourced from the game itself, it's spelled correctly somewhere. Davidvoice (talk) 02:41, 29 October 2020 (UTC)

Titles[edit source]

What was wrong with those titles i added? they're all from the game and as close to accurate as possible and certainly no less valid that "Qahnaarin"Branebriar1930 (talk) 12:02, 12 November 2020 (UTC)
