WikiEdit

I am happy to see you making a presence again - was weird for me coming back to the wiki, and not seeing you as much. Hope everything has been going well for you and your family since last we spoke. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 18:09, September 17, 2014 (UTC)

I can (partially, at least) understand how that can be. Hope everything continues getting better for your family. See you around the wiki - I am not really active still, but if I ever pick up ES:O again, I was telling Ebony that I might return to editing. It has been odd seeing so little attention being paid to those articles. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 18:41, September 17, 2014 (UTC)
Makes sense. I tried to like it, myself, but got bored of the game pretty quickly as there is little to no vanity content at the moment. I keep holding out hopes that ES:O just needs time, to help make the world feel more alive - but so far, I prefer games such as Rust or World of Warcraft. Do you play ES:O?

Message Edit

Bloons Reaper 00:42, September 18, 2014 (UTC) Is there by any chance a way for you to change my username from "Bloons Reaper" to "Faaldiilaar" because I have a good reason for this.

That and "Faaldiilaar" is actually in the dragon tongue which spells "The undead servant" that and I am willing to help in any way I can since I have decided I am going to check the wiki at least 3+ times a week(daily).

Also, I happen to have a copy of the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Xbox 360 that I've had for at least 1 year just In case you wanted to know. :)

I will be patient so feel free to take your time...

Article creation layout/New categories Edit

Hey Timeoin,

When going to create books for online, the infobox is not correctly laid out. there is a space between it and the top. While it does little harm to the layout, I end up fixing it to make sure the page is proper. Is there any way to fix this?

Also, If I may ask, Why do we have more detailed categories. We have some for books, but when it comes to notes, letters, and anything that doesn't fall under our current spectrum, it is only listed as a note or book. Some letters and note are military orders, or related to war or revenge. We could better organize some of the books and notes in my opinion.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 21:10, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

For online, organizing military orders by region would work, but books by region would be a little harder as "books" (as far as I know when speaking about Online) are found everywhere. Journals, orders, and notes could benefit from region. I created Online:Journals yesterday, as I kept running into journals and we didn't have a category for them. I am also seeing that we could use a "books about <race>", only the Nords have a category like this, and "books about animals as there are more then a few books relating to creatures. I am building a small list in my Sandbox of potential new categories, I think we should look into the potentials before we started creating them, so we can better manage and organize books. I would hate it if we just started creating new category's, and caused any confusion or mishaps because something wasn't understood.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 20:35, September 23, 2014 (UTC)
I probably should have gotten that in the first place. Ok, yeah. That could work. Anything to help organize and make things easier I am all for.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 02:46, September 24, 2014 (UTC)
I will make note of the new categories and start adding them when I can. If you could just let me know when if you add any new book related categories, that would be great.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 18:19, September 24, 2014 (UTC)

New category ideas Edit

Hey,

While working on other books and articles, I thought of a few more category's. Will any of these work, or would we be over categorizing the articles?-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 19:57, September 29, 2014 (UTC)

Im not so sure about the revenge one? Other than that - I think they're pretty good, actually. Is the books about nords one specific to just online? Oh, and the one about dying/dead people - I think that needs a better name - but I know what you mean - I think it'd be an interesting category - and not just for online, either. There are quite a lot from the other series that spring to mind - like Pete Utchoo's Last Words :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 20:01, September 29, 2014 (UTC)

Disambigs Edit

Hey Tim, I just thought you should know that we're currently looking to decrease the number of disambiguations so people are more likely to be taken to what they want, instead of a page of links. You should try to avoid disambiguating pages unless there is three articles or more about the subject matter: if there is only two articles on said matter, disambiguation is unnecessary and adds work to the editors. I believe a lot of disambiguations on the wiki were created by yourself so just thought you should be aware.

RE:Wood Elf Etiquette Edit

There is the book, "Wood Elf Etiquette: An Imperial Perspective", and there is a note called "Note about "Wood Elf Etiquette"" in the game. The note is a letter about a shipment of books being delivered. As far as I know, both are seen in game.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 08:04, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

Exactly, a "Note about "Wood Elf Etiquette".-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 22:00, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

Group Boss Locations>Boss LocationsEdit

Hey Timeoin, I saw that you created a lot of the ESO locations recently. I thought I should let you know that the term for these locations is Group Bosses, because the bosses are generally to OP for a single character to defeat, so it's designed for a group of people to go there together as a group to defeat the bosses at these locations.

That page already exists as Crafted Item Set but has a merge template on it to move to Armor Sets (Online). Personally, I think they should probably remain separate pages as the Armor Sets page will most likely become very extensive as more armors get added to it.

I think that Item Sets sounds good, especially if weapons re considered in the sets as well. Ȼǿᵰᵮẽᵲ ₲ħǿśᵵ Ⱥᵰᵾᵬĭᵴ Đẽẽᵭᵴ 11:21, October 17, 2014 (UTC)

What's wrong with emojis and caps.I believe caps are used to have fun and so are emojis I'll be expecting a reply thank you very much.Soul456 (talk) 01:14, November 19, 2014 (UTC)Soul456

just a suggestionEdit

dear timeoin recently i have been looking on the uesp wiki and have noticed that the uesp wiki has far more information than this wiki  so i have been thinking that we add more information abought character such as adding pages for each game character like Dagoth Ur (morrowind)  wich shows not just their history but their dialogue their attacks and spells but also add more information abought the hero of each game like what they did in each main quest as i have noticed that most of the games protagonists have very little info on what they did during the main quest like the nerevarine and dragonborn ( the hero of kvatch page is perfectly fine by the way). here is a list of pages that i think would need some more updated info and pictures. The hands of almalexia, akavir and its populace, children, morrowind characters and places and enemys and quests, dialogue with every person such as almalexia and the populace of cyrodil morrowind and skyrim. i hope you use these suggestions to better the wiki and if you want to ask me questions just message me (Dragon Boy 252 (talk) 03:59, November 28, 2014 (UTC))

Re: Quick QuestionEdit

Hey Tim, it looks good. Are you locking through the preloads too? We should get that updated too. Hope everything went fine yesterday. EbonySkyrim Message! 06:47, December 3, 2014 (UTC)

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that :(.. EbonySkyrim Message! 07:56, December 7, 2014 (UTC)
Tim, I'll get back to you on that later.. on fb. EbonySkyrim Message! 11:25, December 9, 2014 (UTC)

TESO Console Beta QuestionEdit

Hey there Timeoin (also sending out to a few other admins),

This is Jorge from Wikia's Community Development team. We're always reaching out to publishers and developers about potentially cool opportunities for our communities, as you may know. Recently we learned we may get a chance to do an exclusive beta code giveaway, specifically for your community, for Elder Scrolls Online's Console release. We were hoping this is something you and your community would find interesting and would be willing to promote across your community's article pages (we'd handle that part) and mainpage in a temporary module of sorts. This of course would only be temporary while we distribute codes to Elder Scrolls wiki visitors (from a week to a month, depending on what you all prefer).

Do you think something like this is possible? Got any questions or feedback?

Let me know on my talk page! All the best, Jorge @fandom(profile)•(talk) 21:50, December 3, 2014 (UTC)

Leaderboard Edit

Hello! Quick question: why does the leaderboard only go up to 19, of all numbers? It's odd, prime; something like 30 would make more sense. I'm just a little confused about that. Also, what do the little green triangles next to usernames signify? Seniority or something? Sorry for bothering you, I just figured you were the one to ask about this topic (for obvious reasons). Atvelonis (talk) 02:01, December 4, 2014 (UTC)

Quick Question Edit

I've decided to rid Coldharbour of redlinks, but I don't actually have much (if any) knowledge about the pages I'm creating.

Is it acceptable to leave the templates open for information to be placed into them, or should I leave the redlinks for now?

ParanormalAndroid (talk) 22:29, December 8, 2014 (UTC) No fancy signature here, sorry.

Retiring PAGENAMEEdit

Hey Tim, Just a heads up to let you know that we are no longer going to use the magic word {{PAGENAME}} for articles. It's causing more trouble than it is helping, with users adding/removing it back and forth, so we've decided to just do away with it. It will still be used within some templates, as it doesn't display the PAGENAME magic word itself on the articles. So, just letting you know, because I saw you create some new character pages for Online, and you didn't notice that it's missing the name of the character in the lead when you published. :P I currently have DwemerBot running to replace all instances. —TombRaiser SPEAK! 19:24, December 14, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Cyrodilic BrandyEdit

Hehe, I was hoping you wouldn't see it. I was looking at what had been done in the RA and slipped with the mouse and clicked and realized I had done the rollback... it was a serious mistake. Lol.. but you are getting rid of the 3 disambig too? Ghost and I talked about making those lore pages with (Lore) after, that's why I left it as it was with the red link on Chorrol (Lore). EbonySkyrim Message! 13:21, December 23, 2014 (UTC)

Oh and adding, I've retired the sect-stub as well now. And please archive now Tim.. :) EbonySkyrim Message! 13:22, December 23, 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I don't really know about that as Ghost is the more lore person than I am. I know next to nothing and he was starting that before he went on a break. And I saw you replied to DragonBoy.. he's been a bit.. I didn't really know what to say. Thanks for that. Wishing you a merry christmas too.. was thinking of starting a thread about that, to wish all a merry christmas but hesitated. Lol.. EbonySkyrim Message! 13:32, December 23, 2014 (UTC)
