Lore[edit source]

Hi there, nice job on the lore additions you have been making recently. Quick question, are you by any chance user AldmeriDominion on uesp.net?

Jimeee (talk) 10:52, June 19, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! Yep, I'm the same user AldmeriDominion on uesp.net who's been adding stuff to the Maormer lore page recently.

License images[edit source]

Hey, could you please add the {{Zenimax}} license to all the TESO images that you have uploaded? Thanks. —TombRaiser SPEAK! 18:17, June 27, 2013 (UTC)

Snake image[edit source]


First of all, great job with the Online pages so far! Keep up the good work :)

Second, is File:Giant Snake Attacking Ship.jpg not from Online, or is it just that you haven't found an article to put it in? Kroq-gar78 (talk) 21:20, July 26, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! :D

The Giant Snake image was originally intended for the Giant Snake page, then I decided to move it to the Sea Serpent page, but I found a much higher quality image of the same creature and used that instead. MHInfinite (talk) 10:27, August 6, 2013 (UTC)

Online Pages[edit source]

As stated above - good work on the Online pages so far! (I will assume that it's been you that has kept updating them lately.

Just a small question though  - was the Deshaan page the same as the Deshaan Plain page? I havent had time to watch the video. Is there a city by that name, or is it the region? If so, can the pages be merged or redirected? Um... yeah. Anyways - don't mind me. I come online every few days and try and clean up the Special Pages, and happened to come across it. As i said before - you're doing great work! TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 14:10, August 7, 2013 (UTC)

Please forget all of that. I can now see that it is, indeed, separate, as there are swamps and forests of Deshaan. TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 14:38, August 7, 2013 (UTC)

Watch out, someone might steal it[edit source]

Have a sweetroll!
G0LD3NF1RE has awarded you a Sweetroll!
For doing awesome work with Online pages :D

Nice, cheers! :D MHInfinite (talk) 19:47, August 22, 2013 (UTC)

I was going to do it first, but G0LDIE here stole my idea >.> Kroq-gar78 (talk) 22:20, August 22, 2013 (UTC)

Imga[edit source]

Hello, following the Imga thing I contacted the user at uesp and the whole thing should be sorted now. No need to take it any further. It might be wise to mention in both your wiki profiles that you go by a different name on each wiki to avoid any future confusions? Thanks. Jimeee (talk) 15:24, September 1, 2013 (UTC)

Will do. Cheers. MHInfinite (talk) 17:26, September 1, 2013 (UTC)

Image licensing[edit source]


Thanks again for all your work on the Online pages. :) Just so you don't get confused by the lack of a "Zenimax" template when you upload images, please use {{Zenimage}} instead. We've moved it in preparation for deploying a template that will encompass all of these in the future, so hold tight ;) For now, just use "zenimage" on images. Kroq-gar78 (talk) 00:31, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

No problem. I'll be sure to use the new template from now on. MHInfinite (talk) 12:36, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

Apologies[edit source]

Its after midnight here.

I thought I'd somehow messed up the indentation. Now that you pointed it out, I do remember that. It was the Morph Choice or something. Anyways - I'm off to bed, before I make more mistakes. And again - sorry! TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 14:08, September 19, 2013 (UTC)

That's ok, no need to apologize, we all make mistakes. MHInfinite (talk) 14:23, September 19, 2013 (UTC)

Volley[edit source]

Hey, do you remember which class it was that used this one? I can't find a link to it. I think I must have missed it. TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 14:01, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Yep, the Volley ability is found in the Bow skill line (so any class can use that one). MHInfinite (talk) 14:08, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

City Lore Pages[edit source]

Hey... if you're going to do that, can I ask a favour? Can you move those pages to the actual city name (i.e. Skywatch (Arena) to Skywatch?) 

That way the "lore" page is actually the page itself. (It's a bit silly to have historical town information on Arena pages anyways, and really, an Arena page for all of them would have nothing more than "this city is a potential place where the Eternal Champion might end up". I'll get rid of the deletion candidates in the morning when I wake up. Anyways - thanks either way! :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 13:06, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

That makes sense. I'll go back to those pages and change things around. Since some pages aren't specific to Arena I might as well remove the Arena template and Eternal Champion intro from the necessary pages. MHInfinite (talk) 16:23, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

Vlastarus (Online)[edit source]

Before we get into an edit war, let's discuss this. I spoke with two Admins, Kennyannydenny and EbonySkyrim, and both told me that Oblivion doesn't belong in the appearances section since there's no evidence that the town in TES:O and the ruin in Oblivion are related except for the name. You say "They're in the same location", but how could you know? TES:O hasn't been released yet. If, when the game is released, it turns out they're related then by all means, add it. But now, as we have no proof, it's speculation. DRAEVAN13 22:03, October 2, 2013 (UTC)

Here's two screenshots. One from ESO's map, and the other from Oblivion:
Vlastarus (Oblivion) & Vlastarus (Online)
I've played the game on Ophelia servers, I know they're the same location, and there's nothing to suggest that they are separate. MHInfinite (talk) 22:13, October 2, 2013 (UTC)
One's a town and one's a fort. Like I said, take it up with the Admins, they're the ones who told me the Oblivion appearance doesn't belong. If you check the page, I added a compromise in the form of a Trivia quote. DRAEVAN13 22:17, October 2, 2013 (UTC)
I haven't receiver a message from any admins about the issue. However, as another example, Tava's Blessing is a town in ESO, yet a city know as Lainlyn in other games. There was no issue there, so I don't see why this is an issue here (unless you're going to edit that page also now). MHInfinite (talk) 22:20, October 2, 2013 (UTC)
From Admin Kennyannydenny]s talk page: So say, delete the template since there's no evidence yet that the small ruin in Oblivion, is the same as the town in Online. DRAEVAN13 22:21, October 2, 2013 (UTC)
That was before I provided a map showing both Vlastarus's in the exact same location in both games. That admin message was never left on my talk page either, and I don't understand why this is such an issue to you. MHInfinite (talk) 22:24, October 2, 2013 (UTC)
Because the town in Online and the ruined fort in Oblivion might not be the same thing.  No, the Admin didn't contact you, but he told me to remove the template. That's what I'm doing. If you have a problem with that, contact Kennyannydenny or Ebony Skyrim. DRAEVAN13 22:28, October 2, 2013 (UTC)
Fine, I tried to discuss this and be reasonable, but if you insist, I'll ask the Admins and see if I can lock the page until this is resolved. DRAEVAN13 22:38, October 2, 2013 (UTC)
A point: Fort Buckmoth is a fort right next to Ald'ruhn. The two are in the same general area but are two distinct locations. The fort and the town are seperate. Until the game is released and we see whether or not the town and fort are the same, it's just speculation, maps or not. DRAEVAN13 22:58, October 2, 2013 (UTC)
This is not worth arguing about. It is very likely that both of these places are related given the map locations. This is not the first time a fort is all that is left of a city. In skyrim there was snowhawk city and now it is fort snowhawk. Keep it in and make a note of the name on the page Jimeee (talk) 01:19, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
I agree with Jimeee. Plus this has gotten out of hand. The same logic applies to Snowhawk and Fort Snowhawk. Given the new info about its location we can say that the same logic applies to Vlastarus as well. MHInfinite (talk) 06:38, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
There seems to be a difference in their location. Fort Vlastarus is right next to Skingrad on Oblivion's map, whereas Vlastarus the town is not. Either they're not the same, or Bethesda screwed up. DRAEVAN13 13:24, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
The maps make it pretty obvious it is intended to be the same location. Both locations are found along the Gold Road, south west of the Imperial City. It would be an impossible coincidence otherwise. I can't believe the edit war that happened over this minor thing. In this sort of situation just don't edit war. Alert an admin and leave the page, unless it's proper vandalism. Jimeee (talk) 13:57, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

Online update[edit source]

Hi there. I'm currently moving info from the main ESO page over to the relevant sub pages. It would be best that any new detailed info be added to those pages, rather than the main page as it has become really bloated.

We really need to start structuring the content and categories for ESO about now, or else we will end up with the giant mess we had when Skyrim was released. For info, here is my sandbox of categories that gives a rough structure, but will probably need tweaks as we understand the content better: http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/User:Jimeee/sandbox13


Jimeee (talk) 14:57, October 4, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. I'll check the sandbox whenever I add more ESO pages or categories to those pages. MHInfinite (talk) 15:08, October 4, 2013 (UTC)

Fungal Grotto[edit source]

Ah. I suspected as much for the Gloom Wraith. As for the levels - yeah, I was putting them as placeholders for me, whilst I got through that video. TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 12:49, October 5, 2013 (UTC)

Fair enough, I thought the levels might be placeholders but wasn't too sure. I've also moved the Murkwater Goblin & Ravager under a new Allies section. MHInfinite (talk) 14:27, October 5, 2013 (UTC)

Mournhold[edit source]

Possibly. There is a bit of lore out there for Mournhold, It is just yet to be added. TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 14:12, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

Honestly, it probably would have made more sense to copy some of the info over from the Tribunal page for it, but im not that smart :( TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 14:17, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

leaked concept art[edit source]

Dear MH, I saw you deleted the concept art on Black Marsh (Online). Just so you know, the same user also added a picture to Windhelm (Online), could you please check if that is also leaked concept art? Thanks in advance! Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 19:47, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Well, since they are from the Beta, and people joining the Beta may not talk about the game, we don't want to be a platform which goes against the makers rules to which the participating people accepted. So imho, we should delete any Beta images. What do you think? Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 13:45, October 30, 2013 (UTC)
I Deleted the pic's you marked. If you find any more, let me know and i'll delete them. Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 15:30, October 30, 2013 (UTC)
Will do. MHInfinite (talk) 15:35, October 30, 2013 (UTC)

Remove[edit source]

Crazy131 21:22, November 20, 2013 (UTC)Why you undo my edits they were correct

You're replacing links to specific class pages (e.g. Dragonknight, Templar, etc) with links to the Classes (Online) page. Also, you keep linking any phrase "ultimate ability", "active ability", and "passive ability" to the Abilities (Online) with no distinction between the different types. MHInfinite (talk) 21:27, November 20, 2013 (UTC)
Crazy131 21:28, November 20, 2013 (UTC)Okay i think i might have got carried away thanks

Great job[edit source]

Have a sweetroll!
Jimeee has awarded you a Sweetroll!
Once again, great job with adding the latest Online updates, especially from the new interactive map.

Jimeee (talk) 12:52, November 21, 2013 (UTC)

Cheers for the sweetroll! :D You can probably expect me to add even more stuff to the wiki from the interactive map later on. It's the biggest amount of ESO info that ZOS has given out in a while. MHInfinite (talk) 13:07, November 21, 2013 (UTC)

Images[edit source]

Quick question - those screenshots - where abouts did they come from? (They weren't beta were they?) TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 13:03, November 21, 2013 (UTC)

Nope, they're from the new interactive map of Tamriel. Link: http://elderscrollsonline.com/en-uk/map/tamriel MHInfinite (talk) 13:07, November 21, 2013 (UTC)
Woah. Yeah, Thats a lot of images. And there's some books there too, or at least excerpts from them. TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 13:20, November 21, 2013 (UTC)
I have no idea where to put the text on that map. I've just added two provinces of them onto my user page project thingy here. Some of them seem like books, some of them, just conversations or something. I don't really know - but the info is useful. My favourite so far is the Boy who became a Kagouti. TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 13:38, November 21, 2013 (UTC)

Patroller nomination[edit source]

Hey MHInfinite, you've been doing such a great job with the the ESO articles while also actively patrolling edits. I would like to nominate you as patroller if you are interested. We need more active patrollers and you're already doing a patrollers work, only difference will be that you'll have the rollback and custodian tool and change in username color. Let me know. :) —TombRaiser SPEAK! 21:40, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

Hey. Glad that you're interested in becoming a patroller. All you need to do is read over the Patroller staff page so you are aware of what you will be able to do as patroller. I'm not sure if you've ever used the rollback tool before, but what it does is similar to using the "undo" button, except with the rollback button, the changes are not visable on the recent wiki activity feed, and should only be used in cases of vandailzim. There is also a custodian tool which gives you the ability to rename images to a more proper name.
Other than that, I will put up the nomination for you today and members will vote. After 7 days the votes will be tallied, and if you have the majority of support votes, you will then become an official patroller.
I've made your nomination here if you want to check it out. :) —TombRaiser SPEAK! 22:02, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

Templates and references[edit source]

So you're aware, the NewMMO template must always go above the infobox template. Additionally, any type of maintenance template must go above there as well. For example, {{delete}}, {{lead}}, or {{attention}} -- all go above the infobox in the editing window. The templates that go below the infobox are: {{for}} and {{quote}}.

In regards to references, if you want to re-use a reference already cited earlier in the article, format it like this:

<ref name=blahblah/>

Instead of:

<ref name=blahblah></ref>

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask. Also, looking over the style sheet for the formatting of templates might help out greatly. Happy editing! --—Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 00:40, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. I'll be sure to edit with this in mind from now on. MHInfinite (talk) 16:07, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

The Elder Scrolls Online[edit source]

Greetings MHInfinite. I obviously have not had as much experience on this site as you, but I must ask, why do you keep putting the NewMMO template inside the {{GameInfobox}} template? NewMMO is meant to go on the top (as Deyvid Petteys said), not inside an infobox; I'm not sure how it looks with your browser and monitor but for me it's a mess. Thanks, --Stallord's Minion (talk) 03:56, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

Patroller[edit source]

Vicky and I decided to close the vote early due to overwhelming consensus. Welcome to the team. Use your powers for good. You now have the added ability of rolling back, multiple undesirable edits. Please consider looking over the help guide before using this tool. It can be somewhat tricky to master at first. With it, you can undo multiple edits from the same user with one click, either in the recent changes, contributions page, or article diffs. Couple with the other patrol tools and duties, you have the ability to rename files and patrol newly created articles. Articles you create are auto-patrolled now as well. If you have any questions, please direct them to an admin. We would love to help. :) --—Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 22:06, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome, I'll make sure to use my powers for good and keep this wiki clean :) MHInfinite (talk) 23:10, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Congrats to promotion[edit source]

Hey, Congrats to the promotion to patroller :) —EbonySkyrim Message! 12:18, December 11, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Locked out of Patroller Account[edit source]

The best advice would be to get in touch with wikia. Because THEY have that power. Unfortunately, I do not. TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 12:52, December 28, 2013 (UTC)

Leaving this message on here as well in case you cant see the other one. MH - You need to contact admin in order to get that fixed - as Wikia Staff are the only ones that can fix that problem, unfortunately. TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 12:55, December 28, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice. I've just contacted the Wikia staff so hopefully I'll be able to log in within the next few days. 16:05, December 28, 2013 (UTC)
