Dragonborn[edit source]

Hi Joker. I would ask that you please not add the category Dragonborn to the articles of those which you did or any others, unless they relate to the Dragonborn DLC. I understand the confusion, just don't let it happen again. Have fun editing! Atvelonis (talk) 18:38, January 19, 2015 (UTC)

OK, it won't happen again. Joker (talk) 20:28, January 19, 2015 (UTC)Joker

Re: Color[edit source]

No problem, I'm happy to help you out. You can only have your username color changed if you get a staff position on the wiki: administrators are green. These colors are added through a MediaWiki page that only sysops can edit.

If you are referring to your signature, however, then yes you have to go to your preferences. Under the second header is a box titled, "Custom signature." You would have to check the "I want to use wikitext in my signature" box, and then write in your name, the code for any colors you want, and anything else you want in your signature. However, it's not a good idea to make your signature the exact same color as a staff member's, to avoid any confusion. Have fun editing! —Atvelonis (talk) 12:38, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

Just randomly saw this, so I thought I'd reply - you can change your name color for just yourself (no one else will see your name as a different color) by editing your css. Here's an example, just change #2F4F4F to whatever color you want (full list here). --Shockstorm (talk) 19:47, December 25, 2015 (UTC)

Template[edit source]

Hi Joker, just so you know you're able to add the Not to be confused with... thing at the top of some articles via a template called {{confuse}}. It works like this in source mode:


No link required there, just the name of the article to which you are linking. If you're using Visual Editor, you would hit the "Insert" tab on the toolbar on the top, then near the bottom is "Template." When you do that, a little window pops up with a list of templates sorted by their usage, but it also has a search function. You can look for a template by scrolling or search for it if you know it by name. Click the one you want to use, {{confuse}} in this case, and write the name of what you're linking to under "1" (again, just the name of the article, don't include brackets). The other spots are if you want to add more than one link. Hope this helped. Have fun editing! —Atvelonis (talk) 20:29, August 31, 2015 (UTC)

Cat Userbox[edit source]

Hello there, you have a really nice profile. I also noticed your cat lover userbox and I like it. :D I was wondering if it's your own personal custom userbox or you plan on making a public userbox template so other people can use it? Thanks.

Image uploads[edit source]

Hi Joker, welcome back to the wiki. Good work with your expansion to the Llathyno Hlaalu page today. I have a couple of suggestions for the image, though. Firstly, we prefer uploads to be in the PNG file format (as opposed to JPG), as PNGs are lossless and therefore are the more "long-term" of the two. I know that you play on Steam, so you should be able to go to Steam -> Settings -> In-Game, and on the right, there will be a checkbox that says "Save an uncompressed copy" in reference to screenshots. If you keep this checked then it will save an additional PNG version of your screenshot (in a different folder than the JPG, if I'm not mistaken), which is the one you should upload. Ideally, you should also set your graphical settings in-game in a way that makes it easier to see the characters you're trying to depict, otherwise the image makes readers strain their eyes.

So, if you don't mind, it would be a good idea to find Llathyno again and try to get a brighter PNG version. Since the file format will be the same as the existing image, you can then reupload it (go to the "file history" tab of the image and click "Upload a new version of this file") to preserve the file's history. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, and have fun editing! —Atvelonis (talk) 16:01, December 27, 2018 (UTC)
