I have updated nearly all the Dawnguard stuff now - I have been seachin the net non-stop so I don't think i've missed anything. Also we have new Dawnguard templates that we can use - I'll make the rest eventually.

One thing we need to do is update the Online page so it reads and looks better rather than a list of bulletpoints. Something like the Dawnguard article maybe.

changing admin to administrator Edit

hello again. i was wondering how you managed to change it from saying admin to administrator.

example "Timeoin Administrator" instead of "Timeoin Admin" Lwalt26 says "ride the ponies " 02:25, June 9, 2012 (UTC)

Edit auto-flagged as vandalism Edit

Greetings & Salutations, We tried to clean up the page Horse(Skyrim), removing 1st person, verbosity, etc. and the message came up that our edit had triggered an automatic vandal blocker. The message advised us to contact an administrator for help. Thanks.DarthOrc (talk) 14:42, June 9, 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I know you like me, have a soft spot for Morrowind, so just a quick question.

When editing the characters, how can i find the information such as level classes etc found in the templates.

I would love to aim to have a much more complete morrowind pages so would love to know how to add these as it is included in the templates.

Hey, Timeone. I recently added two pictures for Silver Tooth Cave from Oblivion. I was wondering if, a) they will be put on that page, and b) if I did all of the stuff right. These are my first uploaded pictures, and I tried to follow the instructions as good as I could. Please let me know when you get a chance. Thanks!

I was just wondering, what is TESWiki's policy on using bots, does a new bot account need to be created like on Wikipedia or can the bot be used on a regular account? I ask this as I have noticed some suspiciously fast edits. 08:30, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

I was just going to ask this, I have been thinking of using a bot to do some of the repetitive tasks, but wasn't sure if I needed a separate bot account, do I?
Balagog gro-Nolob (talk) 10:27, June 23, 2012 (UTC)
I thought there were people doing this too, some people open edits in multiple tabs and close them out
all at once. Not exactly botting. One of the patrollers operate a bot, and I BELIEVE you can request bot actions on his page. Otherwise I think youd need to hear from the admins.
Senjai (talk) 01:30, July 5, 2012 (UTC)
I'm fairly sure there are no bots operating here without permission; perhaps opening multiple tabs, yeah, but that's not disallowed :)
GramsJ and I both operate bots - DwemerBot and Veetor-Bot III. Both of their talkpages are also open for requests. Elchzard (talk) 09:51, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Admin Dashboard Question Edit

Hello Timeoin. I recently discovered that when I run DwemerBot I can't create the search list using "Wiki search (text)" as the source. A friend helped me to discover that the wiki text search ability for TES is disabled. Could you check the Wiki Features section of the Admin Dashboard to see if this is the case? If it is disabled, could you please enable it? Otherwise the only way I can do a search and replace of a text phrase on wiki pages is to select "all pages," which is over 21,000 pages and takes all day to run. Thanks, GramsJ (talk) 23:04, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

Hello Timeoin. Just to clarify the text search is disabled in the api.php not on the site it self.
<error code="gsrsearch-text-disabled" info="text search is disabled" xml:space="preserve">

Somebody changed my thread Edit

Recently, I posted a thread in the Skyrim forum section seeking help in obtaining the Ebony Mail. User Slowrider7 posted a response, then I posted a response. Later in the evening, I checked the thread and saw that there was a reply from user I clicked on the thread to see what his response was, but found that he left no response at all. The only posts that were in that thread were my initial post, Slowrider7's reply, then my reply after. I suspect that made a change to Slowrider7's reply or my reply but I can't tell. Could you look into this? If did indeed make a change to either Slowrider7's reply or mine, please undo it. If not, then disregard this message. Please leave a response on my talk page. Thankyou.--Ryker6106:02, July 1, 2012 (UTC)~10:57pm 6/30/2012

Corrected spelling/grammar Edit

Hi. I am not a user on this site, and I really do not feel like signing up just for a single edit. I just thought I would bring this to your attention. On the "Dragon Rising" Quest page, in the bugs, there is a typo. "Unrelenting Force" is spelled "Unreliting Force," and is therefore leading to a broken link. If you would like to email me, you can reach me at I hope this was helpful! 14:33, July 2, 2012 (UTC)Selena Hitori

I have dealt with this. Thanks.

Dwarven Crossbow Naming Help Edit

Hi Timeoin, if you wouldn't mind I need help moving a page...or a few pages actually. Since there are 2 dwarven crossbows now (morrowind and dawnguard), I'm trying to create a disambiguation page entitled "Dwarven Crossbow". The problem is, the Dwarven Crossbow from morrowind page is entitled "Dwarven Crossbow" so I'm trying to rename that to "Dwarven Crossbow (Morrowind)". But there's already a page by that name, which as it turns out is a redirect page for that dwarven crossbow from morrowind page. So could you possibly delete that redirect page? Much appreciated :) Deus Gladiorum (talk) 06:10, July 3, 2012 (UTC)

I have fixed this problem. Jimeee (talk) 10:46, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, sorry 2 bother you. But was wondering how does the whole post a picture thing work? I mean when I try to put a pciture on a certain page it asks me about the owner ship of the picture,and what are non-canon pics? So to basically what im trying to say i would like to post a picture a character page or item page what must i do and what if i took the picture myself, is it ok 2 post it since it's mine?

Sorry to bother you and thanks 4 your time,

( King Thane)

Edit Request Edit

Hello Timeoin, I am The Milkman. I was looking over at the Classes (Skyrim) page, and I was unable to edit it. I did leave a message on the talk page, but no one responded. It is largely biased and overall feels like an opinion piece of blog post. I feel it should be deleted altogether. It's intro sentence refers to it as a classless system, so what's the point? Skyrim doesn't have player classes, and most of the page just details why some people don't like that.

If not deletion, I do strongly believe this page needs to be revised extensively for quality. Again, I would do it myself, but it seems to protected. If you could take a look, that would be great.

please look at it and give me any tips and corect it if i did it wrong. i added photos for all of the clothing items.

if you have any advice please add it on my talk page, thank you in advance.

Hi, I just added a little factoid to the Haelga page and it appears to have decided that it was a vandalism. It wasn't, I'm pretty certain that the information can be verified, and my conjecture is probably appropriate in light of her being a wanton Dibella worshipper who cheats with married men and has roleplay sex.

Hi Edit

When i tried to edit alftand elevator discussion page, wiki said that i have been doing vandalism before editing elevator discussion page. This cant be true because i dont think i have ever edited this wiki before? This is my brothers old computer, so it might have something to do with it. But ill leave my message to elevator discussion page here:

Help i have a problem! My game is glitched, so when i used this elevator and now im at the surface. Game makes autosaves and my screen flashes black and my normal screen (where i see my weapons and normal stuff when you play skyrim in 1st person) I cannot move, it just keeps doing that! I tried to do coc blackreachelevatoralftand, coc whiterunorigin, coc riverwood etc but none of these help! it just keeps teleporting me back to elevator thingy. I cant load my last save because this glitch autosaved my autosave slots full of "skyrim" and if i load any of those, it just keeps happening. I haven't tried my normal saves, but i dont really want to because last time i saved was ages ago =( Is my save ruined?But please someone help me =( i dont want to do all those missions again! And i dont think this is messed up because of commands, i have only used coc, changesex, resurrect and kill commands in this save. I have visited qasmoke, but never took anything. 18:41, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

page suggestion Edit

Hey this is my first time looking at the wiki, and I love that all this information is in one place. Its great since I'm pretty new to the Elder Scrolls. I know this is out of place for me to ask, but why don't you guys have a character building page? I've seen it in a couple of other places and its very useful. People can post perks they used to make awesome characters and name them theirselves. Its a great place to show off what you come up with. Just a suggestion anyway, not a big deal. Thanks to everyone who created this wiki its awesome.

Greetings from UESPEdit

How do you do, Timeoin? It's been a while. I have been talking with members of my wiki, and while personally, I think it's nothing, I have been asked to bring this to your attention. Granted, we are talking lists, so ultimately, they will end up the same, but a few of our patrollers are suspicious, because hours after Alphabetface created this page, a new editor joined TESWiki, and in one run created a full blown set of tables documenting the same information in one run. Indeed, I can understand where the suspicion can come from,which is why I am bringing this to your attention. May you or one or another admin investigate this user further? As for the data itself, I fear there is nothing that can be done, so I make no requests regarding that, because ultimately, another legitimate user would have created the same table of building materials anyways. Thank you kindly for your time. Snowmane(talk) 08:33, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

This matter has been dealt with. Jimeee (talk) 09:14, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

Suggested Edits to Adoption Edit

Greetings, its us, again. We were looking at the now locked page on Adoption and noticed some needed fixes. ..."where that can be found" should be ..".where they can be found" . In the Interactions, there should be a comma after sweet roll, (before dagger), and "the Yellow Book of Riddles" should be "children's books, such as the Yellow Book of Riddles" , as it isn't the only book they will accept. Thanks DarthOrc (talk) 05:32, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Timeoin,

I made a change to the 'Soul Gems' page for the Skyrim wiki and it's gone wrong. I was attempting to move Draugr Overlord to the Lesser Soul Gems content subsection; it has been removed from the Common subsection but instead of being added to the Lesser subsection, both Draugr Overlord and Draugr Wight are now missing. I think it occured because I used an external URL link to the Draugr Overlord page rather than linking it to a page in the wiki.

Can you advise how I correct this.



Helpful wikis features Edit

Jenkins Returns...Edit

Yep. That's right. I am back, and I'm rather sorry I slept for 480 days.

By the way, first day back, and I'm creating full pages; problem is.... the wiki stuttered, and I had three pages mid-edit, they all got erased. Isn't that lovely? Thought I'd bring the malfunction to your attention, since I seemingly wasted two hours of my Sunday morning now.

You're back! Edit

OMG Timeoin you're back. The last time we spoke was 11 April. Thats a long time ago. I've become patroller and later admin in the time you were gone.

How are you doing? Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 08:28, November 16, 2012 (UTC)

Do come onto IRC sometime Tim, we have much to discuss! Jimeee (talk) 09:37, November 16, 2012 (UTC)

Problem Edit

I'm here because a member that I blocked on another wiki for uncivil behavior is harrasing me on here, he keeps coming onto my talk page and he is bringing other wiki issues here, Its not first time either, he has done this to other admins from the avp wiki on different wiki talk pages. I have asked him to stop but he refuses, I even deleted his and my posts but he keeps coming back (check the history) This wiki should not have to have problems from other wikis or their members, I ask is there something that can be done about it? I could just keep deleting his posts all the time but it would be better if he stops coming on to my talk page. Bringing other wiki issues to another wiki is very disrespectful, especially if that wiki does not want to be involved in other trouble but he still does it anyway. The Cruentus (talk) 21:25, November 17, 2012 (UTC)

Editors Edit

Just to be fair the guy that sent you a request is a serious trouble maker. He has lied to get his own way most the time I kinda helped stopping him from adopting the wiki, he has overrided other administrators unblockings, he does not belong on our avpwiki because he does not like the avp movies, he allows people for the most part to talk about me being killed or committing suicide, and trust me they things where not provoked, and will not punish people that come on our wiki that insult avp fans, one used my edits and reedit them to say avpfanboy, the people that follow that editor say worse things, and worst of all he has possible screwed up a serious issue involving a seriously bad stalker.

And just so you know one of the people from wikicentral itself thinks that somethings he does is not productive. Just do not listen to this guy if he tries to say I am a bad person. If you don't want me to talk about the issue going on on the avp wiki that is fine, but we do have a serious problem going on on that wiki and anyone that tries to help he overrides them, even though they are the same rank, and they don't come back or they just lose interest.

this is the email and have a nice weekend apples and carrots.

The Five Far Stars Edit

hey Tim, i saw you were making a The Five Far Stars (Morrowind) and The Five Far Stars (Dragonborn) article. We normally keep everything about a book on the same page, because the Author, content and all are the same. Except for the locations and the game it is in, everything is the same. Example: Brief History of the Empire, Book I. Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 18:38, December 5, 2012 (UTC)

Ow ok. I couldn't tell because the Dragonborn page doesn't have any content yet. Its that so, then this is an ok construction. Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 18:58, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
I just checked the book in Dragonborn and its identical to the morrowind version. It's not abbreviated. Jimeee (talk) 19:06, December 5, 2012 (UTC)

The Red Year Edit

Tim, those articles already existed. I redirected the pages you made to the pages that already existed. Ps. Jimeee checked for me but the Five Far Stars isn't abbreviated. Why are the contents different in your opinion? Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 19:47, December 5, 2012 (UTC)

Jimeee has renamed the first existing articles so that they now have the correct name. Everything is fixed now. Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 19:55, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
Please ignore me. I went temporarily mad. I swear they looked abbreviated last night. :\ TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 20:05, December 5, 2012 (UTC)

Online pages Edit

Dear Timeoin, i see you made all kinds of pages for TES Online. Nice. But i want to ask you if you could take a look at the formatting before you save the page, using the template {{Online}} instead of ''[[The Elder Scrolls Online]]''. I've changed the formatting of all the pages you created, but if you keep this in your mind the next time you're going to make pages, you'd make me very happy. Thanks in advance ;) Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 12:21, December 18, 2012 (UTC)

No problem. Well i always edit in source code, so i didn't have to think about that. And about Stonefalls. I would rename the existing one to Stonefalls (Arena), and create a new page for Stonefalls (Online). That, to me, is the most logical solution to this. Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 20:51, December 18, 2012 (UTC)
I guess you're right. It would belong on a lore article. We currently don't have lore articles for cities, we only have for example Windhelm (Skyrim) and Windhelm (Online). We don't have a lore page about Windhelm. I guess all lore about Windhelm can be found on the Skyrim page. That isn't correct, but as we currently have all pages like that, it would be wise to ask the community, or at least the other admins about what they think about this subject. For now, i would suggest splitting the pages as i said earlier, and keep the lore on the Arena page. Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 21:44, December 18, 2012 (UTC)
Well i meant everywhere. Also in the appearances section. If you want to link to one of the pages, use the templates. Under appearances, in the first sentence. Doesn't matter :) Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 21:59, December 18, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Online Pages Edit

Hey, To be honest, I really don't think there's much of a difference between "reflist" and "references/>". I just use "reflist" because I feel it looks more readable and that it looks less strange to me. I really don't know why, but that's my reasoning. I doubt there's any difference whatsoever. Kroq-gar78 (talk) 21:49, December 20, 2012 (UTC)

Also, should I be stubbing the pages or not? I am right now, so tell me if I shouldn't be. Kroq-gar78 (talk) 21:51, December 20, 2012 (UTC)

Pocket Guide to the Empire, Third Edition: Black Marsh Edit


I noticed you removed the "OblivionBooks" template. Did you just forget to replace it with another, or what's the reasoning behind it? Just curious. Thanks. Kroq-gar78 (talk) 06:44, December 22, 2012 (UTC)

Proper Capitalization Edit

Hello, Timeoin! I was wondering if there might be a chance for us to get into chat together sometime? I was wanting to talk with someone over an idea I had for innovation here at the Skyrim wiki. Not really a fan of the chat feature you guys have here - would you feel comfortable with maybe jumping into the chat over at my home wiki of Nukapedia sometime? Just let me know, thanks. :) GarouxBloodline

Corrected spelling/grammar Edit

If you look up the Dragon page and read the section of "Frost Dragon" info near the beginning it currently say:

Frost Dragon: White and blue, ice-affiliated dragons with black-colored dorasl* spines.

  • Please correct this to "dorsal" or ask someone else to correct this for you... I was first going to ask #3 to fix this but i couldn't remember more about the name then the letter "J" so please forgive me for bothering you.

Do have a nice day :-) 19:19, December 30, 2012 (UTC) From Richard Persson (Sweden).
