Hello Sweetroll Scrolls, welcome to the Elder Scrolls Wiki! We're building a collaborative source of information for The Elder Scrolls, and we need your help!

We saw you making some changes to our articles and thank you for it. We hope you choose to further this project, and we hope to see you around in the future. If you choose to stay, here are some links to help you out:



I hope you enjoy editing here! If you have any questions, see the help pages or ask one of our administrators.

RE: messageEdit

Thank you for your contribution. I just made some tweaks, but otherwise they look good. You are more than welcome keep editing, we could use more people to help out with ESO content. If you have any questions, just ask. Ser Pouce-a-lot (talk) 02:36, July 16, 2015 (UTC)

If you look at the Pash-Riha page you created, the info box template has all the places for the information. You can just cut and paste that template and add it into any new pages you create.

I'm also going to offer some advice.
In character pages we don't usually start out with:

Edits-This-Wiki is an Argonian in The Elder Scrolls Online.

The standard we use could go something like the following examples:

Edits-This-Wiki is an Argonian residing in Lukiul Uxith, Stonefalls.
or:
Edits-This-Wiki is an Argonian merchant who can be found in Lukiul Uxith, Stonefalls.

Make sure to add 3 apostrophes before and after the subjects name in order to make it bold. If you check out the Pash-Riha page, it shows how an article could be set up, or you can look at other character pages to get an example. Also you should add categories to articles you create. If look on the right side of the editor, there is a place to add catagories. For example on a character page you should add:

  • Online: Argonians
  • Online: Males
  • Online: Stonefalls Characters

I hope this helps out. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Have fun editing. Ser Pouce-a-lot (talk) 14:09, July 16, 2015 (UTC)

What template is giving you a problem?
Also can you not do this with the infobox template?

{{OnlineCharacters
|image      = 
|race       = 
|gender     = 
|level      = 
|class      = 
|skills     = 
|faction    =
|rank       = 
|services   = 
|occupation = 
|location   = 
|region     = 
|province   =
|quests     = 
|voice      = 
}}

It's just easier to work with if the sections are stacked.

As far as the images, I noticed that the picture in the "Nojaxia" page was Nojaxia.pnj, it should be Nojaxia.png, and the picture in the "Pash-Riha" page was a .jpeg file, that may be why it didn't show up. .png is the type of image file we prefer in articles. I don't know a lot about images since i rarely upload them. The person who messaged you below may know how to do that. If not this link may help The Elder Scrolls Wiki:Media#Images.

That's Wierd. I've never experienced that before. Ser Pouce-a-lot (talk) 21:07, July 16, 2015 (UTC)

Image size policyEdit

When making images for upload, could you make sure they're 600 horizontal and 1000 vertical pixels (600x1000)? The ones you've already added would need to be resized/replaced. DRAEVAN13Dc 18:44, July 16, 2015 (UTC)

There's no way of doing it here on the wiki, you'd have to do it on your computer before you upload them, with Paint of Photoshop or some other software. DRAEVAN13Dc 19:24, July 16, 2015 (UTC)

RE:Edits Edit

It was no problem to help, I did notice that the template is weird. Ever since that new update they made it impossible harder to edit it in visual mode. I am placing a link to the template article, there you will see a "doc" at the bottom that shows the code. if you need to add a area to a template you can use that as a basic tool to add what you can. We will need to stop removing unused parts of templates from articles until this is fixed.

When creating articles, I would recommend using the starter kits you see at the top when you start, just pick the right one and it will add the infobox and all the sections you might need. Just use that and the infobox will show up with all the options ready to be filled in. Just leave unused ones until it is known that we do not need that section.

As for the article I edited, its a start for a basic article, unless of course he has nothing else to add. However, Fafnyr is involved in two quest, so I assume he is currently a stub. Also, We try not to add as many categories. The category "Online:Morrowind characters" would be left to those who are either seen all over Morrowind, whos exact location is not know, or to list of characters. We would only place the location and (maybe) region location categories on a characters article.

I hope I am making sense, Somethings It makes sense to me but others not so much.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 01:03, July 17, 2015 (UTC) Template:OnlineCharacters

EditingEdit

Hello! Excellent work on the articles lately—we're quite lacking in ESO content and you're an enormous help. Just a few things I thought I should mention to you (I might ramble a bit, sorry in advance). First, categories for characters in ESO basically go City > Region > Province. So if the character is in, say, Mournhold, the category Online:Mournhold Characters should be added, but not the category for Stonefalls or Morrowind. If they aren't in a city, just add the region category and not the province category.

Also, if you can avoid it, don't start an article out like, "Sweetroll Scrolls is an Argonian in The Elder Scrolls Online," rather you should keep the game out of the lead and just stick to their race, occupation, location, etc., for example, "Sweetroll Scrolls is an Argonian sweetroll merchant in the city of Mournhold, Stonefalls."

A couple of article formatting things too: when writing the "Interactions" section, the quests should be subheaders instead of bullets. Also we have templates for adding the stub category to articles. In Visual Editor (which is what you're using currently), just click the "Insert" tab and hit "Template," then find the Stub template and for field 1 type Online and for field 2 type Character (or whatever is appropriate in that instance).

Also, for images such as File:Fafnyr.png you have the correct size but the image itself looks a little distorted. If you're using the resizing tool that might be causing the issue, you can try just cropping the image to 600x1000 and see how that turns out.

Sorry for the huge wall of text... lots of stuff to talk about I guess. :P I'm very glad to see that you're adding ESO content—we even have a special group of editors working on stuff from the game (you can join if you're interested, it's mostly just there to keep track of projects and ideas, but it's 100% optional). I'm excited to have you with us, and I look forward to seeing you continue to edit here. If you have any questions or suggestions we'd love to hear them, just message myself or another staff member. Thanks. Have fun editing! —Atvelonis (talk) 01:57, July 23, 2015 (UTC)

Well, I don't know what photo editor you're using, but almost all of them have a crop tool grouped with the rest of the tools. You just open your screenshot in your photo editor, select the crop tool, and select the character whom the screenshot depicts in a 600x1000 box. It's very simple to use, it just cuts off everything that isn't selected in the box, and doesn't cause any distortions. —Atvelonis (talk) 00:59, August 9, 2015 (UTC)
Oh, you said paint. Missed that. Well I'd recommend Paint.net (use the download button near the bottom of the page that says "Download now dotPDN LLC," any others are ads) rather than Paint; it has more capabilities and is free as well. In Paint.net, if the rulers aren't already activated, go to "View" and hit "Rulers." Then select "Tool" in the top left corner and under that "Rectangle select," and select the 600x1000 box around the character. Then, click "Image" at the top and then click "Crop to selection." After that just save it as a .png, and everything should be fine. I have some examples of what ideal character images should look like that I've uploaded (I'm on ultra so the quality might be different from yours though). 1, 2, 3, 4. 5. —Atvelonis (talk) 04:23, August 9, 2015 (UTC)

Images Edit

Hey, a couple of the images you uploaded earlier (1, 2) look a little squashed. They're the right size, but I'm guessing that during the cropping stage something went wrong. I've seen this happen before, but I'm still not entirely sure why it happened in the first place. Can you describe the whole process you used to crop those images? Thanks. —Atvelonis (talk) 02:11, December 5, 2015 (UTC)

Actually, they're not quite the right size. They seem to be 1600x1000 rather than 600x1000... that might have something to do with it? —Atvelonis (talk) 02:14, December 5, 2015 (UTC)

Crafting Surveys Edit

Hey, I wanted to ask you some stuff about the Crafting Surveys. I don't know very much about them and Crafting Writs and whatnot in general, so would you mind explaining that to me? I'm trying to figure out how to categorize them properly but I don't really know what they are so that's rather difficult. Also, would you mind if I just created articles for all of the ones you haven't gotten to yet? I'm trying to get the wiki to 40,000 articles before the New Year, and there are over a hundred redlinks on that page. It would also save you a whole lot of work. Thanks. Happy editing! —Atvelonis (talk) 01:39, December 17, 2015 (UTC)

I only recently created that page—I didn't know that the Surveys existed before you started making pages for them, so after you got me interested I compiled a list of all of them (I think). All of them I could find the names of at least. I'm sure you can make use of the page though, it can work as a nice place to keep things organized. And I'll get to work making those remaining pages now, thanks! —Atvelonis (talk) 04:15, December 18, 2015 (UTC)
Also... since you said they are just maps involved in these quests, it would make more sense to categorize them as quest rewards rather than quests. I'll do that too. —Atvelonis (talk) 04:30, December 18, 2015 (UTC)

Happy birthday Edit

Just wanted to say happy birthday :) (I saw it a while ago and just remembered now haha) --Shockstorm (talk) 04:16, December 27, 2015 (UTC)

Re: Renaming Articles Edit

To rename a page you would hit the arrow next to the edit button and click Rename, then type the new name of the page where the old name is in that box on the right. Below the boxes is the "Leave a redirect behind" check box. If you keep that selected when you move the page, any links pointing to the old name will still work. However, since in this case the old name is not desirable, you would have to use Special:Whatlinkshere to find every page that links to the old name. Then, you would go to those pages and change the links from the old name to the new name.

I don't know why it's named Abilities rather than Skills, but the reason you can't move the page is because Skills (Online) is a redirect to Abilities (Online). So I would have to delete the redirect and then the page could be moved to the proper title. Of course, we'd also have to fix the links. If you could come on the Chat sometime, we could coordinate working on it together (there are a lot of links). Thanks for letting me know. —Atvelonis (talk) 18:23, December 30, 2015 (UTC)
