Singular or Plural? Edit
Hey Tim, sorry to bother you again, but I've been working on the Arena articles lately, and I've come across the page "Orcs (Arena). Should this be "Orc (Arena)"? It's confusing me, because pages like "Wolf (Skyrim)" and "Reaver (Dragonborn)" are singuler, yet pages like "Bandits (Skyrim)" and "Orcs (Arena)" are plural... should pages like these be singular or plural? Any response would be appreciated, thanks! Likes-That-Tail (talk) 03:56, July 26, 2014 (UTC)
Multiple Accounts Edit
I regrettably have multiple accounts, my other accounts name is Greeno170. I take full responsibility for my actions. Punish me in anyway that's appropriate. Greeno200 (talk) 06:20, July 29, 2014 (UTC)Greeno200
Equillibrium's Status of Inactivity Edit
I just wanted to address a small issue of the News team ( http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/The_Elder_Scrolls_Wiki:NEWS) where one of the members, Equillibrium, appears to be inactive. Unlike The Milkman he is not listed as inactive, though he appears to be as he was quite active prior to March - April 2014, after that he had no contributions.
So should he be updated to inactive or stay listed as an active user?

Chat 2 minutes?Edit
Hi Tim, Flight and I have been talking about getting together for a meeting later this week on the IRC channel, we would be glad if you can attend despite your two lovely children. Let me know soon please.. —EbonySkyrim Message! 22:46, August 11, 2014 (UTC)
- Tim, how are you? Doing all right? Btw, Tomb told me a long time ago that we shouldn't use the sect stub template, instead only use the game stub template.. I've seen you add it on several pages lately and I tell others we don't use it any longer. —EbonySkyrim Message! 23:08, August 16, 2014 (UTC)

Kvatch Arena Edit
- CCC, I think you can merge it with the main Kwatch article. —EbonySkyrim Message! 07:02, August 13, 2014 (UTC)

Felen's Ebony Staff (Weapon) Edit
I was working on an article, and created Felen's Ebony Staff (Weapon) because I found no evidence that we had an article for it, but found out after that you had created, Maryon's Staff, and this is the same weapon.
I am unsure what article has the correct name, as I am simply coping weapon stats and never got that far into Morrowind to see the weapon myself. I figured that since you created the older article, I should run it by you and ask you if I should delete my article or something else.
- Doing some digging, It looks like they are two different weapons, I didnt see the codes and the locations where different. One is a quest item and the other is found in his house (and IMO would make more sense as the quest item). So I guess it wasn't a problem after all. I will fix the links for the two staff and the quest to make sure all the links are in order and to prevent confusion.
- Thanks, and happy editing-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 20:24, August 22, 2014 (UTC)
Re: Book Edit
I'm adding pages about books in Online straight from the Improved Emperor's Guide to Tamriel from the Imperial Edition from time to time as well depending on my schedule and the weather as well btw :)
I see. Well, I'm in the same boat as well. I had to cancel my subscription because of a tight schedule and real-life issues. But I'm planning to subscribe again soon if possible.
Thanks. ^^ Hopefully I'll be able to play again soon. :)
Unused images Edit
I see that we have a lot of unused images, mostly for Online. Before I start creating articles for these images, I wanted to make sure there isn't some code or rule that says I should give the uploader a set amount of time to put the image to use before I can.
- CCC, I've left those images there in waiting for better quality and correct standard size, (for someone to upload new versions) most of them are uploaded by Tim and I don't think he minds if anyone is making articles using them. I have done some from time to time, usually just books as I play in the Daggerfall Covenant and these guys are from the other factions. I delete those that are duplicate, so go on if you know where they are from. —EbonySkyrim Message! 21:18, August 23, 2014 (UTC)
Tim, I really need to talk to you, please let me know when you can. I have also seen you have some "family issues" and this is keeping you away as well as the little ones. And if you see this now, I'm at work and can't chat, just leaving this message. —EbonySkyrim Message! 10:45, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
Considering you were the one who elevated me to this position, it feels apt for you to be the one to receive this.
As of recent, I am no longer active and cannot afford to be for an unknown amount of time to be due to personal reasons. As such, I request for my flags to be removed and username be moved from "Active Moderators" to "Past Moderators". Thanks for your time.
- Sorry about that :/ I guess it doesn't really matter which you do, whichever is easier for you would be better, I guess. User:Enda Kenny MoS Taoiseach's Office 16:51, August 27, 2014 (UTC)
- Tim, I moved MoS/Enda Kenny to past chatmods. I think it's the best and he can apply again if he want's to when he is more active. —EbonySkyrim Message! 05:38, September 1, 2014 (UTC)
I created an Icelandic TES wiki yesterday. I don't have the rights to do it myself, so I want to ask you for adding the Interwikis at the mainpage and at the article about Skyrim. The links are here and here. Both wikis are already connedcted, see here. I hope it's okay that I connected the wikis already. Thank you and greetings from Germany!

With Alduin's resignation I think we need a new Forum mod. The forums are pretty large now and I don't think 3 mods are enough. Though that is my opinion. Talos guide you Kinsmen Speak Citizen! 13:12, September 6, 2014 (UTC)
- Tim, I've left a message to Harold about this. There are things going on you need to know about so I need to talk to you asap if you can. —EbonySkyrim Message! 22:51, September 7, 2014 (UTC)
Re: Daggerfall TownsEdit
Yeah, I'm planning to. I've already made a few but one of the problems that I have is that when I occasionally fast travel to a different location in the game, it crashes. It can get really frustrating. — Fire Wolf Pup (talk) 03:43, September 12, 2014 (UTC)
- Yeah, I know. It's obviously going to take a little while, though :P — Fire Wolf Pup (talk) 07:45, September 12, 2014 (UTC)
Book content Edit
Since I have been working on books from Online, I have had a question on the back of my mind, and asking it is the only way to deal with it. Since other sites already have the information listed, and it is not their unique written content, there is nothing wrong with me just copying and pasting it right? I know its not plagiarism since it isn't their info, but the question wont go away, and I would like to not get in that situations.
re: the re-evals Edit
In terms of this review - the purpose was to get rid of the completely inactive ones - and Kenny is not inactive.
It was to review all staff, not just those who were inactive, although the vast majority of those are inactive. Just thought I'd clarify that. :P --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | Tabber Code | Channel 12:45, September 13, 2014 (UTC)
Tim, I mean we are going to review what can be done with the board as there are problems, but it will be discussed in a separate thread in the forum. —EbonySkyrim Message! 14:41, September 13, 2014 (UTC)
Just to clear it up :PEdit
Hey Tim, I noticed you referred to me as "they" in that re-evaluation we just had. Despite me not being around that much anymore, thoguht I should just clear up the fact that I'm a single person xD, you must be thinking of DarthOrc. Anyways, glad to see your still on the wiki, hopefully I'll be able to help out again soon. > Flugsmith ~ talk // contributions ~ 16:47, September 14, 2014 (UTC)
Hi, I just wanted to ask you to leave your thoughts about this template on the article talkpage, since there are some major flaws this template has with the wiki, especially if users go beyond here. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | Tabber Code | My Contribs | Channel 09:21, September 16, 2014 (UTC)
Hello! I have an idea that is a bit... Radical. I, being a lonely person with little to no friends, spend many long hours in the night browsing articles, mostly for the trivia, so that I can properly say I know too much about the Elder Scrolls universe. This being so, I am greatly intrigued when I see something which seems to be of only minor significance from an older title be "mentioned only" in a newer game, and I would often like very much to see what the connection is. But alas! I can find no indication that it ever is anywhere on the wiki, so I am subjegated to (gasp) actually trying to find the reference in said game. Ordinarily, this is not a big deal, but I for one, having been coverted from a sole UESP user over to an Elder Scrolls wikiean, beleive that we should do our utmost to compete with their seemingly endless flows of obscure trivia which would problably never effect the gameplay at all.
To get to the point, I think we should, instead of just linking the page to the game title in which it is metioned (although, obviously, we should continue to do that), we should provide a feature which, when some sort of tab next to the game's title on the page in which the reference is mentioned is hovered over, it will provide a list of direct quotations from that game which describe the reference. I have absolutly no idea how such a thing would work or how it would be coded, but I think it would be a fine addition to any page for us trivia-dwellers to leech unimportant information from. Ordinarily, I would have posted this on the forum, but due to the lack of responses I often get, I thought perhaps I should get the attention of an actual individual with it, and who better than the most powerful user, who undoubtedly holds the most influence over the wikia?
