Aussie Userbox Edit

Hey Tim, what happened to the Aussie userbox?? I was SO looking forward to using that when I perma-moved to Oz in less than 2 weeks D: ☽O☾ Bluesonic1 Message Me ARUDOR

Oh there definitely was one, I remember very well! Moving to Brisbane- visited my best friend there once and just fell in love with the place! Finished uni so I can move over now :) ☽O☾ Bluesonic1 Message Me ARUDOR
So I just clicked from your profile that you live in Brizzy too haha *slow off the mark* :P I'll be in the CBD for the first month to start off, staying with a friend, not sure where I'll go after that actually. Most likely where ever the work takes me to and has affordable housing. At this stage I'm just hoping I find a job in my field of wildlife care or animal training first :P Very excited!
☽O☾ Bluesonic1 Message Me ARUDOR
Yeah I don't plan on staying in the CBD, not much of a city person myself. And thanks, might get in touch with you about that after I settle in :D ☽O☾ Bluesonic1 Message Me ARUDOR

Hi Tim, Wikia left a message on my talk page I'd like you to read. What are your thoughts? User_talk:Flightmare#Infobox_BetaFlightmare @fandom (talk) 12:05, May 20, 2015 (UTC)

Guilds Edit

Hey! I'm an administrator of the [[:de:User:Fenrisúlfr|German Elder Scrolls Wiki]]! :)

Some users have seen your quite new guild system and suggested that we could also do this (or at least something similar).

Well, I and my colleagues think there's no harm, therefore ...

But it's from you so I think I have to ask if we could use your system (and templates [...]) in our wiki.

I hope that's not a problem, otherwise one user would make our own templates (well, you're fault, because obviously it's very well received :D) if THAT wouldn't not a problem as well.

Oh, by the way: Sometimes we're using pictures of your Wiki in the German one, but with sources (example), is that okay or do you want that we're more specific?

Well, sorry for my bad English, I'm still sitting at school. :-D

Regards from Germany o/

Fenris [Diskussion] 12:32, May 26, 2015 (UTC)

Allright, thank you!
Yeah, I thought so, but still ... if only because of politness. Otherwise I would feel wrong. *mehehe* :D But you're right, in some way we're one wiki. :)
Okay, great! Well... we had problems with the other German TES Wiki because of pictures and articles, that's why we had become, well, fussy. So I really know what you're talking about.
Google Translator's ... well, most of the time you can nearly understand what the other one's saying, but... yeah. Better in English, because I have no problems in understanding English but in writing / talking in this languages; not big problems, I think, but still.;) Thanks!
Thank you (again; also for your time)! Bye then :) Fenris [Diskussion] 19:05, May 26, 2015 (UTC)
Naah, your UESP is our Almanach. They're scary similar, aren't they (both not cool dark (;)?
Yeah, you're right, we're all one, in some way. I also thought that, because how could two languages be rivals; I don't name any other German TES Wiki rival, though, but you now what I mean, don't you? :D Still, I have to ask, but that's very kind.
Well, I would make the same offer, but the thing is, nearly every guy in our wiki plays on console (me too xP) and then there's the fact that we aren't so much users as here, because there are fewer German guys than English ones, I think. :D But you're right, English is the easiest one. We could learn Esperanto, but... well... I like English (more than German, but I couldn't decide where I should be born >:( ... I love the place where I'm living, in the south quite "next" to Italy (compared to you) on the alps, if you every heard of them. That's nice, but the German language is not so cool as the English one, I also watch movies in English; hearing voice actors can also be fun, though. That's the respone to your "American".;) :D )
and again greetings from Germany, 1 a.m. :-D

Ongoing CT Edit

Hey Tim, so the Skyrim Help board CT has been ongoing for a while. Considering how big the change would be, maybe it should be highlighted or brought to attention to the other admins for further input or something?

Re: Mage Student Edit

Probably, yeah. Or actually it might be radiant, I'm not sure. But either way I'd say it should have its own page. —Atvelonis (talk) 13:04, June 2, 2015 (UTC)

Renaming of imagesEdit

Hey there, i'm using ('u:dev:FileUsageAuto-update/code.js') to do mass renaming. I'm not using AWB on myself, just to make it clear. So yeah, i began my  renaming work :) If you have any problem with something, please, dont hesitate to tell me !

Question about lore articlesEdit

Hey, I have a question about history/lore articles: I have seen a few articles which consist mostly of the contents of a related book. More than half of the article on the Great War, for example, is just copied from the book The Great War. I wonder what the wiki considers to be best practice in these cases? I personally think such an article should take different sources into account, if possible, and, instead of copying everything from a book, reproduce what is most important to the article in question and comment on the choice of sources and of the way they are brought together.

So, I'd like to know whether those articles are perfectly fine the way they are (despite they miss the sources, which I add whereever I happen to find them), or whether trying to rephrase them would be a good idea (if I think I could improve it by doing so, obviously)? Thanks for your time! Mondblueme (talk) 08:03, June 23, 2015 (UTC)Mondblueme

Plagiarism of UESP Edit

I admit to being unfamiliar with how/who exactly to alert of this, but the Maormer page here, especially the history section, is a blatant copy of UESP's Lore:Maormer page. Please fix it or send this message along to someone who can. (I'm sure you guys are tired of the plagiarism, too!) --Likelolwhat 66.58.216.111 22:48, July 9, 2015 (UTC)

Molag Bal Merge Edit

Shouldnt the Molag Bal page be merged with the Molag Bal (Online) page as they are the same being and from my understanding the merge template has been on the page for quite some time. Awyman13 12 July 15 1432 CT

RE: ScathecrawEdit

Good question. I think that is certainly notable, but due it being just texture (or whetever non-interactive world items are called), I'm not sure if it warrants an article of it's own. I think the best way to handle that is to at least mention its appearance in a trivia subheading in the Scathecraw pages, like how the appearance of the Gleamblossom in ESO was handled in that item's page. I hope this helps.Ser Pouce-a-lot (talk) 16:20, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry. I didn't mean any confusion. Maybe i misunderstood your question. Ser Pouce-a-lot (talk) 16:53, July 27, 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I think it may be worth pointing out the scathecraw's appearance in ESO as trivia in their respective pages. Though, this probably should also be addressed with the community, as there may be differing opinions on the matter. As for the Gleamblossom, It is already pointed out in the ESO Easter eggs article, so it may not need its own article. Though that bit if info should be made clearer in the Gleamblossom article's trivia. Ser Pouce-a-lot (talk) 17:25, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

Falmer Stuff Edit

Hey! So I've been working on trying to improve the Falmer Language article, and any items that relate to that particular language in general. I've re-done the letters themselves and this is what they currently look like. Thought I would ask you, as the original uploaded of the Falmer alphabet, if it would be alright if I start making these into individual vector image files to replace yours so that the wiki can use them in templates like those for Dragon & Daedric script (as well as for the article too of course).

Portable InfoboxesEdit

We’re reaching out to a few of our top communities, hoping to get you on board with the migration to the new infobox markup. And we have tools to help!

Why we’re doing this

Simply put: Most current infobox structure translates very poorly to mobile experiences, and indeed any device that doesn’t use desktop-style displays. On desktops and laptops, they often look amazing. The problem is that Wikia’s traffic is trending mobile.

There is an important graph from our forum post about infoboxes a couple weeks back, and I want to share it here as well:

Mobile is the future. Not just for Wikia, but for the web as a whole. Take a look at the recent trends and future growth predictions for mobile traffic - it's staggering.

We partnered with the Wikia community to create this new markup to make sure that your hard work can be displayed on mobile devices (as well as any future technologies) easily and without any new coding conventions. It’ll take some effort up front, to be sure, but we’re here to help, and the work you put in now will pay for itself tenfold in the future.

Tools we’ve designed to ease the process

We’ve enabled two new features on your community. One is a tool for migrating the “old” infobox code to the new markup. It identifies templates on your wikia that look like infobox templates and places a box on the right rail of the template page. When you click the “Generate draft markup” button in this box, it opens a new tab containing a draft of your infobox using the new markup.

The second is a new feature on Special:Insights that will highlight which infoboxes on your wikia have not been migrated to the new infobox markup. It’s fairly intuitive - you can click on the infobox title link itself to see the old markup, or simply click the “Convert!” button on the right, which performs the same action as the “Generate draft markup” button.

This is our help page for the new markup.

Problems with wikiEdit

I noticed some problems with some coding started occurring yesterday.

  • First: I noticed that the collapsible tables in my profile stopped working properly. This problem also occurrs in articles with collapsible tables, such as Keys (Oblivion) and Clothing (Morrowind) for example.
  • Second: the "see id" pull downs we have in some articles such as Shroud Hearth Barrow (Skyrim) and Mythic Dawn Acolyte stopped working.
  • Lastly: the Patroller and MOTM things on mine and other patrollers profile name tags are missing.

Have there been some changes in coding that you know of, or is Wikia bugging out. Ser Pouce-a-lot (talk) 16:05, August 11, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah it's intentional, see here. I've noticed the js and stuff not working on here. Wikia said they'll turn it back on soon, but who knows when that'll be haha. --Shockstorm (talk) 16:12, August 11, 2015 (UTC)

Figured since you uploaded it I would tell you, I am working on unused images again, and am going to add the audio you uploaded but never added. I hope you are OK with this.Cheatcodechamp (talk) 06:15, August 25, 2015 (UTC)

RE:RE:more TESO stuff Edit

Thanks for info on dialogues. No worries about being lazy, I've got a hell of dialogues to add (many screenshots, eh). I was too lazy to ask where to put them, though xD The Lusty Dovahkiin (talk) 22:52, August 25, 2015 (UTC)

Image for Endemel Ancelet Edit

HI, I have a few screenshots of characters from ESO for whom you may have already added a photo. In a couple of instances, I think the ones I have just taken are of a higher resolution and are possilbly from a later patch of the game (looking at Endemel Ancelet). Should I upload them and wait for you to verify whether they should be added to the article? Or should I go straight ahead? I'll add that there are only one or two images which are relevent here.

By the way, should I 'upload new version of this file' or upload the image normally? Bronkiin (talk) 12:22, August 28, 2015 (UTC)Bronkiin (talk) 12:15, August 28, 2015 (UTC)

MW Guild Edit

Hey,

With Gaminnomicon inactive, the Morrowind Guild needs new leadership. I ask you guys to take the time to decide who to fill this role with, or how to proceed in general. For the the guild has been marked as inactive and I hope to see active from this guild soon. I am leaving this message on the guild wall and I will message each of you personally as well. I hope all is well.Cheatcodechamp (talk) 05:49, August 31, 2015 (UTC)

Twitter and small request Edit

Hi Timeoin. Just a small request but, could you capitalize the F in The Elder Scrolls Wiki:Style and formatting? Also, do you still remember the login info of the Twitter account, @TESWikia? If so, could you tell me (in a PM on chat)? Because I really want to get a twitter account for the wiki up and running and I don't want to make a new one. Thanks. ☞ Rim < Talk | Updates | Edits > 05:37, September 1, 2015 (UTC)

Hi Tim, it's been a week and still no reply. I asked this question a few months back as well but you hadn't replied to that either. The least you could do is tell me the current state of the twitter account. ☞ Rim < Talk | Updates | Edits > 02:39, September 9, 2015 (UTC)

NavarbarEdit

Hey Tim, could we add under the News window on the navbar, Weekly Updates and Moot ? May the force be with you, alway Emperor Jarjarkine Aldmeri Dominion The Ragged Flagon - Cistern 19:43, September 4, 2015 (UTC)

Raid from the Trees. Fanon? Edit

Hey Timeoin,

While browsing through random articles, I came across an article with no sources or references, and as to its subject I could find little to no hint of its validity from elsewhere. It seems to be talk about a fight in A Dance in FIre, Book III, but the article is so embellished it is almost unrecognisable. Some more recent admins have made typo corrections but no more. I suspect it should be flagged but I thought it best to go through you first! Regards, Bronkiin (talk) 22:59, September 12, 2015 (UTC) Bronkiin (talk) 23:37, September 12, 2015 (UTC)

Guild Edit

Sure thing, I updated The Guilds page to 5 members for the ESO team. Also, I've created a new twitter (@TES_Wikia) for us, the rest of the names were taken. For the e-mail, I've created a (de facto) official one that I will share with the rest of the admins. If you're online, come on chat. ☞ Rim < Talk | Updates | Edits > 20:54, September 13, 2015 (UTC)

Uh Tim you're supposed to offer us tributes of booze before applying to the guild, I thought everyone knew that. I prefer wine myself, although I'm not sure if you have good wine out there in Austria. --Shockstorm (talk) 21:45, September 13, 2015 (UTC)

Chat? Edit

Hello Timeoin! I hope you are well and things are doing good in real life over there in Australia! I just wanted to ask if you would be available for a quick chat on facebook (or this wiki's chat) about something related to the wiki. It's nothing bad, but just something I'd like to bring your attention towards. Thanks! --Sajuuk 12:44, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

Hi. The above offer is still available if you aren't too busy. :) --Sajuuk 12:03, September 29, 2015 (UTC)

Gaming footers Edit

Hi, Timeoin!

I was wondering if you had an opinion on this site being included in the new gaming footers? We'd love for the Elder Scrolls community to be included!

Best regards,

Raylan13@fandom (talk) 17:06, September 24, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the link - I'll check back in at the end of the month before they go live and then go ahead with whatever is decided ;) Raylan13@fandom (talk) 02:31, September 25, 2015 (UTC)

Re: Nalvilie SarenEdit

Well... I am under the impression i did something wrong, if so i'm sorry. Anyway, a user named Ghost Anubis started the article last year, but I did look up a quest with that name and ID on uesp. Also since Ghost Anubis was once admin, who i get the impression was highly respected, I assumed that they used the correct name, so I copied the info from an article on this wiki under the the name of Hlaren Ramoran's Love which had the same ID over to the article in question. If i did mess up i am sorry. Ser Pouce-a-lot (talk) 07:10, September 29, 2015 (UTC)

Trouble Edit

Tim, we have a vandal (User:107.15.194.254), can you please take car eof him or have someone take care of him? He has vandalized 3 pages now. Thank you --Kora Stormblade (talk) 02:59, October 2, 2015 (UTC)

We now have two, so if you can please take care of them, this is urgent. Thanks --Kora Stormblade (talk) 03:03, October 2, 2015 (UTC)

Re:Skyrim Location Templates Edit

So do we need to keep all those templates? I was thinking that just using SkyrimLocations with the type parameter entered (ie Giant Camp) would add the correct marker icon and category (although currently the template doesn't recognize it if you link the type in the infobox, like Giant Camp - not sure if that can be fixed). I know some of the various templates weren't really used at all, while some like SkyrimForts are used a lot. Let me know what you think. --Shockstorm (talk) 21:57, October 3, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah. We just need to figure out if the SkyrimLocations template will still work if what's in the type parameter is linked manually. If not we would have to delink that field on a bunch of pages (probably using a bot) to get things consistent if we want to only use SkyrimLocations. I would look into it, but I'm not very good with templates. --Shockstorm (talk) 03:12, October 4, 2015 (UTC)
