Welcome, Neguy71inok!

Falmer Missive

Heh. Thanks :) I happened to notice it in the Recent Changes, and thought I'd touch up a few minor things! Er... sorry about that, I guess? :) I shall let you work on pages you make from now on! (Also, its good that you aren't afraid to make typos and minor things like that, as that is how people learn :) On that note: one minor thing I did notice (and its not exactly a bad thing). When you add pages like that, you don't need to put the Book-stub category in :) That page was as full as it needs to be. Sure, the page may be small, but theres nothing else to add to the page, so it isnt a stub (it has a summary, the content of the book, as well as the summary thingy, s its fully complete!) :) If you have some questions about anything, feel free to either ask me on my talk page, or on IRC (where a lot of other cool editors like to hang out :D) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 23:24, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

Well, just as long as you're willing to make mistakes, thats a good thing :) (Because if you are, it means that you can learn from them once you make them :) Now, in answer to your question, there is indeed a gallery. It can be found at Special:NewFiles. However, the ones for, say, the infobox? where it says "upload a file"? They dont have any images added to them yet :) (In fact, if its not on a page yet, you can presume that its not on a page yet, as folks normally add them straight away once they upload the image. I greatly encourage the uploading of images (its something that hasn't been done yet :D). I have one small request with them. When you upload the image, it will give you a choice of the file name. Please write something vaguely relevant :) For example, General Tullius (which already has an image for him), has a file name like General Tullius.jpg. Its a heck of a lot more meaningful than the automated screenshot names (TESV-2011-12-8-2329832 etc). It also means that the file can be searched for and added on other relevant pages, if any should exist :) Anyways - thanks in advance for that (its a minor thing, but it is going to save me a lot of time down the track when I have to go and rename the images :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 23:39, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

Duplicated Pages

Hey! Thanks for that! For the past few hours I've been caught up in the nitty-gritty stuff (Pages that arent linked to on the wiki, pages that dont link anywhere else, etc :D). I'm hesitant to go through and delete pages without someone else going through them first to make sure that everything is moved over (because once its gone, its difficult (thought not impossible) to get back. If you see any more duplicated pages, feel free to make them for deletion (Use the {{Delete}} template (Copy the funny brackets to put that on a page), or just leave me some more messages on my talk page :) Anyways - thanks for that! TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 06:39, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

Possible Vandal

Thanks for that! I shall keep an eye on them. For now though, I wont give them a warning as they edited the change back out. Thus, for now at least, it can be considered a "brain fart" or similar, I think. I'm hoping they go on to be constructive editors (or, if we're lucky, even registered constructive editors, too!) but I have been wrong before - thus, I'm going to keep an eye on them. Thanks for letting me know though! TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 03:37, December 24, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for that! That user is now prevented from making further vandalism. TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 00:44, December 27, 2011 (UTC)

Re:Nomination to Fastest Admin!

What can I say? :} The other day, I was cleaning up White Phial (Quest), so when I saw the other page in the recent changes feed, I knew it was duplicate page. Glad you marked it up, though, or we might've missed it for a few more months or something. --— Radical D (bother \ stalk) 23:45, December 30, 2011 (UTC)


Hey Shon! Thanks for pointing out that vandal. There's an easier way to put them on the watch list, though. Simply type {{vip|~~~~~|reason}} onto their user page, and it'll add them to TESWiki:VIP. I'll start checking that daily for reports of vandalism. Anyway, keep up the great work! :) --— Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 04:20, January 1, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for that tip, I got click happy and hit publish when I wanted Preview to see the template first like I do when I use ones I've never used. I was just glad another anon user saw it and was willing to undo the edit. Neguy71inok (talk) 04:27, January 1, 2012 (UTC)

Skill Books

Sorry about that! I didn't realise that you were going to edit the page (I saw a whole bunch of those bad-links and fixed it before looking at who did it :) Also - nah, not too late, its nearly 3pm here (Queensland/Australian time). If you see them - feel free to remove them. I'm off in my own planet atm, so yeah, I am making random edits based on no discernable system of organisation. In short: sorry, dont mind me! TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 04:53, January 2, 2012 (UTC)

No, no, no,, you the man here, what ever system or organization or lack there of is totally expected, and I was just going back to check it, I could have easily forgotten as I tend to jump around a bit also, except when it comes to the letters and notes. I made it a goal to get every note and letter in the game on the wiki. Neguy71inok (talk) 05:01, January 2, 2012 (UTC)
Well, just so you know, if you get stuck with the letters and notes, The Imperial Library makes it their personal mission to list everything as well :) And cool! As long as someone remembered it :) (Truth be told, im slowly working on trying to reduce Orphaned Pages and some of the other Maintenance ones (quite often, due to those bad linkages, pages were showing up on the dead-end pages one, when they had links on them :( Anyways - happy editing to you as well!

Avanchzel advice

Hey there! The page looks pretty good, format- and tone-wise. Categories also look good. There are some things I would like to change about the page. First are the links to sublocations. So far, I've been adding redirects from sublocations to the main location page. If we start sublocation pages, we'll probably end up with handfuls of permanent stubs. Also, I'm considering changing the header of "Description" to something else. Not sure what, so I'll leave it be for now. At any rate, keep up the good work. --— Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 18:40, January 2, 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. Depends on the article size whether sublocations deserve separate articles. At any rate, I'm not sure whether I like "Summary" or "Description". They are "meaningful" headings. 90% of the time, information in under these headers belong in the article header. After all, that's what I lead is for: summary and general description. For example: Sovngarde. --— Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 19:43, January 2, 2012 (UTC)

Quest category question

The reason I removed the category from the Sideways page and left it in all other "quest list" pages is because those pages were created specifically to list quests in their category, while the Sideways page is just a page about an achievement -- the list of quests isn't even needed there, since they're all already listed here.

Also, putting the page in the Quests category would be like putting the Whiterun page in the Characters category, just because it has a list of characters in it. Hope this explains it :) Cheers --Anon(Talk) 00:40, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for telling me! I didn't bother to check the Dawnstar page!!!!

Books, Letters, and Notes

Hi Shon, I've noticed that you've been making a lot of category edits for letters and notes (after my submissions, I might add :) ). What drew my attention to this is I was just looking at all the categories for Books, Book Images, Skyrim: Books, Skyrim: Books Images (which I think should be changed to Skyrim: Book Images for consistency), Letters, Skyrim: Letters, Letters and Notes, and Notes. (Whew! lots of categories!) I also noticed that you have marked the Letters and Notes category for deletion, and my guess, based on a statement you made above, is that you are working to eliminate all the Notes category references so you can do the same to that category. I've been uploading a lot of Skyrim book and note images and probably have been one of your biggest offenders when it comes to using the categories you're trying to eliminate. For that I apologize. Now I know better what you're trying to accomplish, so I won't be using those categories any more. Will you also be changing the statement on the Letter category page so it includes notes? Just a thought. What is your opinion regarding using both the Books category and Letters category for items that are clearly not books. Are we doing that because Letters pages use the books template? I hope this isn't too long or confusing. I'd like to be more of a help than a hindrance to what you're trying to accomplish. GramsJ (talk) 18:42, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

I'm composing a message on Deyvid's talk page now regarding the Books Images category as well as a few others. I'll be happy to work on all of those.GramsJ (talk) 19:12, January 21, 2012 (UTC)


Hey Neguy,

I've noticed you've edited, or corrected almost everything that I have. I'm new to this kind of site, and i'ts apparent I have a lot to learn before I get it right. One thing I was curious about was almost, if not all the pages I catagorized as notes (specifically Note to Rhorlak) you changed to something else, why is that? I just figured that since note was in the title that it would be catagorized as such..
Anyway I have a lot to learn and hopefully I'll get it right soon enough. I thought I was doing a lot contributing until I was slapped in the face by your statistics. I wouldn't be surprised if you edited this haha. Anyways, I'm done rambling. Have a good'n.

Point Taken

Yea ok, that makes sense. I'll keep that in mind when I do my next post/edit.
And no offense taken, i'ts just part of learning. Thank you.
Oh and by the way, I liked your goal list. I kinda stole your idea, hope you don't mind.
But my goals are no where near as extravagant as yours haha.
HellOnWheels357 (talk) 22:23, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

Thank You

I really appreciate that, and thank you for the tips. HellOnWheels357 (talk) 01:42, January 22, 2012 (UTC)

Letter of Credit Edit

Man that just rolls off the tongue doesn't it? After reading your message I went to the page and saw what you were talking about, and I will definitely keep an eye out for that from now on. Seriously, thank you for the advice. much appreciated. HellOnWheels357 (talk) 10:12, January 22, 2012 (UTC)

Resist Poison Potion Recipe

Dear user Neguy71inok, can i ask you why you nominated the page Resist Poison Potion Recipe for speedy deletion? Why only that note? Why should all notes and letters deserve a page and that one not? As for now, i disagree with the speedy deletion and also marked that on the talk page conform to the rules. Kennyannydenny (talk) 22:01, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

Honestly, I don't know what the difference is, other than that Template: looks messy to me. With the {{Delete}} template, if you add two vertical slashes, it'll change the entire color coding of the template for some reason. I'll fix it later, but I've fixed it at Resist Poison Potion Recipe. At any rate, I moved that other page to Potions (Skyrim)/Poison Recipe because that's the proper name. Potions is a disambig. There are potions in every Elder Scrolls games, and that page of recipe documents only focuses on Skyrim information. --— Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 23:44, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

Could You Do Me A Solid?

When you have the time, could you go over to the Dragon Cultist page?
I'd like to get your input on how I filled out the Skyrim Creatures template. When I was getting the info to fill out the boxes, I came across 2 totally different cultists. Not only did they look different, their stats were different. Not just by a little either, they where substantially different. So I made a slideshow captioning one D.C #1 (Dragon Cultist 1) and the other D.C. #2. Then in the info boxes put #1's on the left and #2's on the right separating them with a dash (-), and made sure to explain on the first info box only. So please let me know what you think of that. Again, I did it only because of the substantial difference between the two.
The other thing is, occasionally when adding a slideshow to a template I get that damn [File: above it, and |250px] below. And I can't get rid of it because it's like hard coded into the template. I understand it's for a single picture so you can just type the name and extension, but is there a way to remove it or re-word the slideshow?

Sorry to write you a novel and burden you with this. I noticed (when I received my ban for posting an unsightly, but totally deserving picture of Ancano) that davidpettys changed his (talk/contributions) to (bother/stalk). So I know it probably can get a little tiring being the go-to guys. Which I'm sure it's intended as a joke, but the truth comes out in jokes. Wow, look at that. While apologizing for my novel, I wrote a sequel haha. OK! I'm done, have a good'n.

HellOnWheels357 (talk) 12:42, January 22, 2012 (UTC)
Hey, no problem on the novelas, I don't mind reading, besides it is easy to keep going lol. I took a look at that page and it looked great, I did make a couple minor changes, more of personal style thing versus wrong. A couple of minor fixes with the brackets which were done in source mode, taking the http://elderscrolls parts out, we prefer to keep them to the double brackets for internal links as it saves on the page size, and is easy to correct in source mode. I will have to get with one of the more template experience admins to figure out what to do with File:250px showing, only way I see to really fix it is to create an Template for slide show, otherwise the fix will end up breaking all the other creature pages. See how easy it is to create a novel, and I'm trying to keep this short. Neguy71inok (talk) 21:28, January 22, 2012 (UTC)
Ok I see what you did there, but I only did the template stuff. All the other stuff that was edited was someone else's doing. I'm glad you approve of my edit. I hope others will understand it, I tried to idiot proof it as much as possible (so to speak). I've said this a million times but I really appreciate you're insight. Your responses are meaningful. Nothing against the man, but davidpettys responses seem automated. I don't know, I just hope you don't mind being my go-to guy. So anyway I think I'm quite finished kissing a** haha. So let me know what you can find out about the template, no rush. Thanks man. HellOnWheels357 (talk) 22:39, January 22, 2012 (UTC)

Ok gotcha. Thank you. HellOnWheels357 (talk) 23:34, January 22, 2012 (UTC)

IRC and Image names

Hi. For some reason, I couldn't get back in to the IRC channel, so I'll respond to your question here. When I name the images, I do give them meaningful names. The problem is, I'm replacing poor quality images, so I'm using the "upload a new version of this file" link, and it doesn't give you the option to use your own file name --- unless you know of a way to change it. If the preference is for the meaningful name, then I will stop using that link. GramsJ (talk) 00:17, January 23, 2012 (UTC)

The only reason I was using the "on page" link to upload a newer version was so there would be no question regarding which images could be removed. Like you, though, I prefer the meaningful names. I don't mind the "extra work," so to speak. I may even go back and reupload some of the images so they will have good names. :) GramsJ (talk) 00:50, January 23, 2012 (UTC)

Otar's Mad Guardians

Hey Neguy. Um, as far as I know (going by the game guide, p. 385) its listed under Miscellaneous Objectives. LIke all the other Dungeon Quests, its not listed specifically by name. The misc. objective is to "Unlock the Sacrophagus in Ragnvald". (As far as I can tell, it seems to run parallel to the Masks of the Dragon Priests Side Quest.

UESP Violates copyright rules and public domain clause of Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 License

The admins are too cowardly to listen so I'll post here. You're looking at the wrong template. Our ownership of screenshots is established on http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Template:Uespimage and has been for some time.

Two things: ONE: This is not a talk page, this is his USER PAGE. Two: That template to which you are referring to breaks the copyright by which UESP claims to operate ;) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 02:45, January 28, 2012 (UTC)
Since one of your fellow thugs has protected the talk page I have to post here - unless censorship is your goal? After all, you blocked me for vandalism when I did nothing of the sort.
And no, it doesn't break copyright. Don't try to fake knowledge on this topic. 02:50, January 28, 2012 (UTC)

This moved here from User talk:Neguy71inok/AnotherReply

Moved this here: My user page is my user page! Now the image you listed on this page before the revert violates the Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 License which is why I have yet to see it attached to any image currently on your site, to include the Skyrim page showing the box set covers. Please check with your own Dave Humphrey who is the UESP owner before you unilaterally announce your site is going to violate a license. Neguy71inok (talk) 02:52, January 28, 2012 (UTC)

Latest revision as of 20:58, 27 January 2012

The site thugs have locked even your used page now, so I have to post here. Evidently both Timeoin and David Petty have no proper arguments so resort to locking things in an attempt to hide their ignorance.

Your own ignorance is quite stunning, though. That template is used on the majority of site images, and was discussed some time ago. It was introduced entirely because this site keeps stealing our images.

Again, I have to ask why it is that the traffic is only one way? Where are the great articles and images that people want to copy to UESP? There are none.

Fix your own content instead of stealing ours. 02:58, January 28, 2012 (UTC)

Banner aside, you deleted an image from this site stating it was stolen, well, it was pulled from the uesp site and was properly attributed, so it wasn't stolen or in violation of your sites copyright policy, you comments are no longer wanted on this subject as you have proven incapable of civilized discussion. By the way I asked for the admins to lock my pages for me. Neguy71inok (talk) 03:32, January 28, 2012 (UTC)

Furthermore, if you don't own the copyrights to an image (i.e. just about every image both here and on uesp) then you can't claim it's been stolen. Can't have something stolen from you that you don't own.

Great Book Infobox!

Hey Shon, I really like the book infobox you just put up on 2920, vol 03 (not that my opinion really counts), but I think that will serve us well for all three games (and whatever else we add.) GramsJ (talk) 20:32, January 29, 2012 (UTC)

Okay! Actually I was in IRC last night but forgot I had it open. When I did finally check in, I did see that Halo was working on the template, but I don't think he had completed it yet. I'll go give him the kudos, then. GramsJ (talk) 20:50, January 29, 2012 (UTC)


Eh, sorry about that, suppose I got a little overzealous. I figured that since the "Skyrim" category seemed relevent but absent, I'd add it- I wasn't aware of the reason for those absenses. For the "Plants" and "Alchemy" categories, I saw several pages that had them before I added them, so I assumed they were also appropriate, why were they not? Also, no "Fungi" category? -LordDragonfang (talk)

I always forget the signature after all that typing... I should really start putting it first. Anyway, thanks for the clarification. Is there a list of deprecated/restricted categories that I can reference, so as to not make the same mistake again? Also, if the usage of Category: Plants is restricted in that way, shouldn't the page description reflect that? It is currently "This category is for all forms of plant life."

Letter and Note images

Hey Neguy71inok, great job on uploading those pics of the letters and notes. But i think you forgot the second page of Requested Report and Possible Rivals, or am i wrong? Greets, Kennyannydenny (talk) 17:57, February 17, 2012 (UTC)

I checked, and I used the console to acquire all the notes, and it seems by doing it that way, it did not give me the entire note on those two. I knew some notes (bounty) only showed as blank or partial items by getting them via the console since they had scripts attached to them to fill them out. The contents on those two pages are correct based on the CK, I will have to hunt the actual notes down in game :D Neguy71inok (talk) 00:36, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
Alright i understand, well Requested Report is really easy to find. It's on the second floor in Bolli's House on a cabin right next to the bed if i'm correct. I picked it up myself when i wrote the page. --Kennyannydenny (talk) 11:27, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
