RE: You keep undoing things that don't have to be undone![edit source]

Actually, they all needed to be undone. If you want to improve your editing practces, just use the links in the infobox on this very page.  They are very useful.  All those minor edits are just bringing things in order with the guidelines. - Erik the Mad (talk) 18:57, October 26, 2014 (UTC)

Seriously, dude.  For your own sake, read those links.  You are kinda making a mess of the wiki with all these pointless edits. - Erik the Mad (talk) 16:28, October 27, 2014 (UTC)
Stop removing redlinks.  They are placeholders for future articles. - Erik the Mad (talk) 17:21, October 27, 2014 (UTC)


I think there is nothing I could possibly edit.

LuminHeavy (talk) 17:22, October 27, 2014 (UTC)

Don't give up so easily, man. Like I said, just check out the formatting and guideline links in the infobox. They will help give you an idea of the proper way to edit here. That's why everyone gets the same message when they join. - Erik the Mad (talk) 17:30, October 27, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Bad links[edit source]

What that means is, Dragonborn is linked to Last Dragonborn, not Dragonborn & thus a redirect. Not only that, but it's already linked on the article. Mercenary needs to be renamed to an appropriate name, as there a multiple types of Mercenaries in the game, & "Bandit" leads to a disambiguation page. Hence why they are bad links, & an Iron War Axe is proper English, not a Iron War Axe. Ȼǿᵰᵮẽᵲ ₲ħǿśᵵ Ⱥᵰᵾᵬĭᵴ Đẽẽᵭᵴ 14:29, October 28, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Banned from chat[edit source]

Hi LH. I'm sorry but I don't know what happened in chat and I don't question the mods decisions either I'm afraid unless there is something wrong with the ban. It is only three days, just wait it out and then you can join the chat again. EbonySkyrim Message! 02:33, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

Image[edit source]

Hi, I've deleted the image of artwork of Dremora. It was taken from DeviantArt and you can't use and upload an image unless the artist give their concent. It's stated in their TOS with copyright. EbonySkyrim Message! 20:33, November 10, 2014 (UTC)

interlanguage links[edit source]

Do not remove them. Again. They are there for a reason. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | Tabber Code | My Contribs | Channel 18:52, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

Because they're not "interwiki" links Lumin. They are interlanguage links and are there to help non-English speakers find the content in their native language. Do not remove them from pages as you are breaking the link between the wikis by doing so and is vandalism and disruptive. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | Tabber Code | My Contribs | Channel 18:55, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

Sandbox[edit source]

You should probably use a sandbox to get familiar with editing, otherwise you're going to get reprimanded a lot by the admins and other editors about your edits. AIdmeri (talk) 17:46, December 12, 2014 (UTC)

Template[edit source]

Don't change the "pagename" on pages. We still have this as a standard in the articles and the only time it's to be changed is when the game is in brackets in the pagename. Until this is decided let it be as it is, thank you. EbonySkyrim Message! 10:51, December 13, 2014 (UTC)

Don't add the game to the lead please, we have removed it for a purpose. This has been decided a long time ago that wherever this is possible to remove, it shall be removed. EbonySkyrim Message! 11:05, December 13, 2014 (UTC)
We have now removed pagename from the pages so don't add it now, just letting you know. EbonySkyrim Message! 19:26, December 20, 2014 (UTC)

Disambig for delete[edit source]

Lumin, I just want to let you know that in the future look for the "Links here" under "My tools" at the bottom to see if any pages link to the disambig page. Some pages you can't change on, then leave a message in the delete template that there are pages still that needs to be changed. EbonySkyrim Message! 19:29, December 20, 2014 (UTC)

Ok, that's fine.. you forgot with the last one you just did and I have done those now. As for redlinks template, more than 5 red links. Template:Redlink EbonySkyrim Message! 10:49, December 21, 2014 (UTC)
No, at the bottom of the browser is a bar with Following and My Tools. If you can't see it you have to click on the arrows on the right side, on show. Under My Tools are "What links here", when you click that you get a list of articles linking to that page. Like this.. Special:WhatLinksHere/Steel Ingot. An admin must fix the links on forum, blog and users pages but the rest a regular user can fix. EbonySkyrim Message! 11:30, December 21, 2014 (UTC)

Templates[edit source]

There is no reason to do {{Template:somenamehere}} when adding templates to pages, as MediaWiki already calls templates when using curly braces by default and just adds pointless text to the page. Doing just {{somenamehere}} is sufficient. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | Tabber Code | My Contribs | Channel 18:55, December 21, 2014 (UTC)

It's not wrong and damaging, but it's a pointless addition to the source and just looks messy. I know Visual Editors do this, so if you are using the VisualEditor or Wikia's classic RTE, I would recommend you to switch to Source Mode. You can do this by going to your preferences and changing Preferred Editor to "Source Editor".
Also, there's no reason to leave white space between your message and your signature, it clutters up the page and makes it hard to read when signatures are added a few lines below the message itself. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | Tabber Code | My Contribs | Channel 19:00, December 21, 2014 (UTC)

Interlanguage links[edit source]

Hi. I saw that you added an interlanguage link to the German wiki, on Skyforge Steel Dagger, except the link you added does not exist on the German wiki. Please only add interlanguage links if the page already exists on the German wiki. I don't know how many pages you've might have already added the German interlanguage link to, but in the future please double check that it exists on the other wiki. Thanks. —TombRaiser SPEAK! 19:07, December 21, 2014 (UTC)

Talkpage[edit source]

You are not permitted to simply delete messages off your talkpage unless it violates the TOU. You can archive your talkpage, but you may not do so unless you have more than 25 headings on your talkpage, which you don't yet have. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | Tabber Code | My Contribs | Channel 19:24, December 21, 2014 (UTC)

Stub template[edit source]

Please don't remove the stub template on articles when there is still images missing. Thank you.. EbonySkyrim Message! 19:41, December 21, 2014 (UTC)

Stubs on NPCs Online[edit source]

Lumin, please don't add stubs on NPCs in Online.. I've removed those you have added on characters I have played and there is nothing else to tell about them. EbonySkyrim Message! 19:47, December 27, 2014 (UTC)

There is no reason to add a stub at all on those types of NPCs that do nothing else than walk around town or sell stuff. Or sit down waiting.. why add it just for the sake of it? If everything is there, a quote, what they do and an image that is the right size, there is no reason at all.. EbonySkyrim Message! 16:30, December 28, 2014 (UTC)
You don't have to explain in the summary why you remove stubs as you just did.. Some characters have stubs because the image doesn't fit the requirement yet, aka 600x1000 px. Let those still have the stubs.. There usually are not anything more interesting about them, how was it? Have you got ESO so you have played it? EbonySkyrim Message! 16:38, December 28, 2014 (UTC)
