Re: Image namesEdit
Hi Shane for Wax,
When you're correcting spelling and grammar on articles, please don't put commas or period outside of quotation marks. The wiki follows American grammar, which means commas and periods must be put inside quotation marks.—CarloV3r (talk) 08:53, July 20, 2017 (UTC)
Skill capitalization Edit
Hi Shane, thank you for the edits lately, you're doing good work. This is extremely nitpicky, but in a sentence like this, you would not capitalize "Destruction" because the skill name is being used indirectly to describe a spell (rather than being used on its own). The wiki's style and formatting guide has a section on capitalization which discusses this in a little more detail. —Atvelonis (talk) 21:35, September 13, 2018 (UTC)
- Yes, stylistic inconsistencies are often present in articles because of the crowdsourced nature of the encyclopedia. If you're ever confused about what the proper format of an article should be, it's a good idea to check the style guidelines or ask a staff member for help. It's what we're here for! —Atvelonis (talk) 03:37, September 14, 2018 (UTC)
- Oh, you really don't have to worry about asking silly questions, no one here is judgmental about those things. Wiki editors understand that no one instantly knows everything about editing; we all have to learn by asking questions and experimenting with things. Even if you have a really small question that you think is stupid, it is absolutely, 100% fine (and encouraged) to message an admin about it!
- Anyway, I believe the consensus we reached a while back was that draugr should be decapitalized for general use, since it's the name of a creature (like dragon, goat, etc.) rather than really being the name of a race. The exception is of course if you're recording quoted information, in which case it would be quoted verbatim, no matter what. —Atvelonis (talk) 02:25, September 18, 2018 (UTC)
- You really have nothing to worry about haha. But if you're really anxious about asking a question, you can get it to us privately through some form of off-site communication, such as a DM on Discord, or in a Chat PM if you're online at the same time (might have to arrange a Chat meeting beforehand though).
- Oh dear, forgot to respond to your last message, sorry about that. I would probably keep "magic anomalies" decapitalized. I'm not quite sure what you mean with the point about the Dawnguard quests, though. Which order is it that you find jarring? Either way, the DLC quests should not be on that page at all. —Atvelonis (talk) 23:07, September 24, 2018 (UTC)
- It states in the lead that Quests (Skyrim) is about the base game, not the DLCs, so it's totally within your purview to remove the Dawnguard quests from the list. Be bold! If anyone gives you a hard time about it you can link them to this discussion. —Atvelonis (talk) 03:16, September 25, 2018 (UTC)
Re: Potentially stupid q abt Hall of the Dead Edit
The link on Locations (Skyrim) under ==Falkreath== should go to Hall of the Dead (Falkreath). If I had to guess, I'd say it probably links to the disambiguation because what is now the disambig used to be the only page about Halls of the Dead on the wiki (hence why it uses a section link), and the link on Locations (Skyrim) just wasn't updated when we split it into several pages in 2015. This happens sometimes when people forget to check Special:WhatLinksHere after doing a pagemove.
Stables get their own section on Locations (Skyrim) because they have a unique location marker on the compass, so it's not necessary to make an entire section for Halls of the Dead. You can add links to each Hall of the Dead under each relevant city; they were likely omitted previously because we didn't used to have individual pages for the Halls. Now that we do, that line of thinking no longer applies. —Atvelonis (talk) 14:12, October 10, 2018 (UTC)
