Elder Scrolls Wiki in 2011Edit

Hey there! Wikia is trying out something new this year where we are trying to make a "yearbook" for the biggest wikis, and we want to know what big things happened this year at The Elder Scrolls Wiki! Can you check out this blog post and either give some details in the comments, or just write on my wall if it is easier. We're looking for fairly detailed information, such as what the community's favorite character/item/location/what they are looking forward to most for Skyrim is, things like that. If you have any questions, shoot me a message! Thanks so much! Soldierscuzzy (talk) 02:08, November 8, 2011 (UTC)

Pets in Skyrim?Edit

Hi, i'm new to the wiki i'm new to the Elder Scrolls series and Skyrim is going to be my first Elder Scrolls game anyway, i was wondering, it seems you know alot about Skyrim and i was wondering do you know if you can have a pet in Skyrim? like a dog at your house, sorry if this is a stupid question but i've searched everywhere and can't find information.

How to solve this? Edit

Hey Timeoin,

I have been updating a lot recently on the Wikia, mostly everything and everyone in Riverwood, since I already have the game, but I have a problem now that I don't know how to solve.

In Riverwood there are two NPC's who run the Sleeping Giant Inn. They are called Orgnar and Delphine. But the problem is, that the page linked to Delhpine isen't the one I mean. So what I mean is, there are at least 2 NCP's in Skyrim called Delphine. How do I make a different page with the same name? Isen't it going to say it already exists?

Thanks for your time and help.

Greetings SoKoLoV

How To Solve This Part 2 Edit

No, I checked they are a both two different people. But I encountered the same problem. Not only are there 2 different Delhpine's (One a Blade member, the other wife of Orgnar owner of the Sleeping Giant Inn) but there are also two Sigrid's. (One from Oblivion and one who is the wife of Alvor, the blacksmith of Riverwood). So I also need another page for her. I tried making a new page, but it says the name already exists.

Thanks for the help by the way. I am new so I don't know how to do everything yet.

Radiant QuestsEdit

I'll jot everything down that I do, and I also think a big thing to do will be shop prices, so I could work on that. I live in San Diego, and we have off school Veteran's Day (I'm a junior in highschool), so I'll be able to get the information fairly quickly. I'll see you around! Redsoxusa09 (talk) 15:34, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

{C}Timeoin, I am trying to get the spell books, spells, and mage quests updated. Thanks for fixing the Sparks page. I will try to learn Wiki and how to make the pages better as I go along. I am new to updating a Wiki, but look forward to helping as much as I can. Best Wishe, Tom Tom.deaver (talk) 00:19, November 10, 2011 (UTC)


Thanks so much for the kind and warm welcome, Timeoin. I know I will get sucked into the game and the story so I will not be much good at updating quests, though I might edit them from time to time. However, I will keep a journal and update all the locations of Spell books and Dragon Shouts and update the mage quests. One question, can you put Spell Books (Skyrim) page under either spells or give it it's own subcategory? I do not know how you administrators will want to organize things, but I hope the Spell Books page does not get lost in the more general Items page. Perhaps put Spell Books (Skyrim) under both Spells and under Skill Books, if you can have two locations for the page? Anyway, thank you again for the warm welcom.

Hello AgainEdit

Hello there, could you delete, or at least edit, this article?

Can't fight them...join 'em Edit

Hey sweetie.

I figured seeing how I'm now sharing you with the TESWiki and Skyrim I might as well help out.

You play; I type. I just don't know what's going on with my account. You're a WikiGod can you do something? I'm currently typing up Kolb & the Dragon.

Wikia achievements Edit

Hey Timeoin. I was just wondering if you think it is a good idea to make the achievements on this wiki a little more Elder Scrolls :) I see we have a lot of "As insane as Timeoin" etc, and was thinking to Elder Scrollize the achievements to make it more fitting for the newcomers :-) Is it OK?

Bug Encountered Which Prevents Finishing Quest (PS3 Version)Edit

Hey Timeoin,

It's me again, thanks for the help with the naming of the pages with the same name, I figured it out while trying some options but couldn't have done it without your help so thanks again.

But now I have a bigger problem. I play Skyrim on my PS3 and have encountered a bug which prevents me from finishing the quest at all. I have already added information about this on this page on the Wikia

http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Bugs_%28Skyrim%29

But should I make the quest on the Wika itself and add "Bugs" to the bottom of the page? And you wouldn't know a way to tell Bethesda of this bug by the way? I live in Belgium so I can't use the support line described in the manual which came with te game.

Thanks

SoKoLoV

A question great Timeoin, why is the Skyrim countdown still going?

And Another QuestionEdit

Sorry if I post to much on your profile but I don't know who else I can ask this too.

I have bought a house in Markarth (City) and have other usefull information about the city and it's people (Jarl for example). But here on the Wikia, I can't find the page for the city. The only think that exists is "Markarth Side" but this isen't the city, does this mean the city doens't exists yet or am I wrong and is the correct page?

Blog ProblemEdit

I am probably making you crazy with all my messages, sorry for that. But I have another problem. {C I made this blog, but it doesn't appear under "Blogs" when I choose that on my profile.

http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:SoKoLoV/Floating_Horse_In_Skyrim

Furthermore I wanted it to appear as News, so people could read and watch it and then leave a reply, but when I add those categories (News, Site News, Blog Posts) it doesn't change anything. So when I click "Recent News" the topic is not there.

Sorry again to keep bothering you with all my problems. I'll try to figure it out myself the next time.

Thanks again.

IRC Edit

IRC please Elchzard (Talking is fun.) 23:24, November 12, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not a very good editor, so i thought i would let you know it's possible to become a Werewolf in Skyrim, when you do enough quests for the compansions guild, they will ask you if you would like to become a Werewolf.

I have no idea if you already knew this but i thought i would inform you. Corey Poole (talk) 02:54, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

Where can i download the 1.1 patch for skyrim?

Alphabetical TOCEdit

If I place it here, maybe another admin/editor could also help.

Do we have a current template for alphabetical table of contents. Otherwise I can just do it manually with the wiki code I found for it... for the Dragon Language page.

Response to 'Spoiler Warning: Lore Issues With Skyrim' Edit

Have you read "The Infernal City" and "Lord of Souls" yet? It is the Aldmeri Dominion, the Thalmor who attacked the Imperial City and took over. Thalmor influence was already getting stronger in the early years of the Fourth Era. And they banned worship of Talos not because he was the first mortal to ascend to godhood, but as vengeance because Talos as Tiber Septim drove out the Aldmeri when he founded the Septim Empire.

- Crusader (Crusader's Mailbag) 15:39, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

So I read the book I think you were refering to, 'The Talos Mistake', and I believe it's just Thalmor propaganda written by Imperials, an attempt at encouraging the acceptance on the ban of the worship of Talos. There's always a difference between the actual, blatant truth and the 'official' truth, and the fact that Arkay was a mortal god as well is the flaw in their reasoning and another reason why people are pissed off at the ban, perhaps BethSoft wrote that deliberately. But perhaps it's the fact that there are no historical sources that can confirm Arkay was once mortal, and the only two sources there are (the Monomyth, which says that Arkay was one of the first spirits to form after the beginning of time, and Ark'ay the God of Birth and Death, states that Arkay was mortal) contradict one another, whereas Tiber Septim, Zurin Arctus and Ysmir Wulfharth DID exist and it can be confirmed through historical sources in TES lore.

Troll pages and wikia hilites Edit

Please remove this page as it was a troll page (History) : http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Luis_blackman_the_spog. Also i would recommend you to add hilites as seen here : http://help.wikia.com/wiki/Draft:Highlight {{SUBST:User:Jamesrulez1/sig}} 02:12, November 15, 2011 (UTC)

Delete Whiterun (disambiguation) Edit

I was wondering if you could please delete the Wwhiterun page. It is a diambiguation page but should not be, as Whiterun (CIty) should clearly just be "WHiterun". Wwhiterun Hold can remain Whiterun hold but I would appreciate it if you could please delete this page.

Thank You,

Requests for deletion Edit

i've been playing skyrim for a bit now and i've noticed there are alot of character pages that are misspelled but there is another page with it spelled correctly, so basically im just asking how do you request pages for deletion or is it possible that you delete them?

VandalsEdit

Hey there! No problem. It makes me so angry to see people making a mess of our work. I understand it must be tough here. This is a very popular series with tons of editors working on pages daily. I don't mind keeping an eye open for things that shouldn't be here :) --Deyvid Petteys 11:57, November 15, 2011 (UTC)

Categories Edit

Hey, I mostly like to go around the site and fix grammar/spelling/general messiness.

One of my biggest issues is that there are too many categories. Can we maybe get rid of the ones resembling "Quests in Morrowind" and instead keep the pattern of ones resembling "Morrowind: Quests"?

I feel it would make the wikia much smoother. —This unsigned comment is by Corybergeron (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Video embeddingEdit

Hey!
My name is Joni Niva, and I make video tutorials and other game videos in Youtube. Been doing game tutorials since late 2008, started with Fallout 3 back then.
{C}I was wondering if its ok for me to embedd Skyrim video tutorials on this wiki? They would be my own videos Im making for Skyrim. I've done the same thing with Fallout wiki, The Vault, few years back. Hundreds of my videos were used as official guides and tutorials there, until the admins decided that they dont like video embeddings on that wiki. The reason was left a bit open, but I guess it had something to do with them saying its causing the page load slower.
{C Anyway , it would be great, and it would mean a lot for me to provide video tutorials for this wiki, since most users find them very helpful. Im doing the videos anyway, no matter what, so it would be very easy for me just to embedd them here when uploaded.
{C Here is my channel link - Orcidea
{C I embedded my first Skyrim tutorial for the Frost Breath thu'um in the page for it - Frost Breath. Please see if you find it disturbing, or unrelated for this wiki to have videos embedded. Or maybe just a link to the video, perhaps? Either way, Im waiting for your reply, and will act accordingly.

With best regards,

Whats thew easiest way to kill a snow bear in Skyrim? Help me please.

I will absolutely help as much as I can to update and organize the categories, and I look forward to when they have all been converted.

I noticed Bestiary is replaced with just Creatures, so I deleted Bestiary from Timeoin/Categories

Also, to clarify, the format of "(Name of game): (Name of category)" is only to distinguish between different games. Whereas "(Name of category) in (Name of place)" is simply to distinguish different areas.

I'm assuming you wish to keep that distinguishment between things by games and things by place, and do not plan on converting categories such as "Cities in Cyrodiil" to "Cyrodiil: Cities".

I'd also like to apologize for not adding a headline or signing with four tildes on the last two posts.

I will sign this one to show the end of my ranting. Corybergeron (talk) 23:31, November 16, 2011 (UTC)

{C}Hello, Timeoin, (or any others that might read this)

I'm new here, and pretty green to the whole wiki thing, but I thought that it would be interesting so I'll give it a go. As I don't want to make this extremely formal, here's my inquiry... I made a minor edit on some information I thought was worth noting in the 'Notable Loot' subsection of the Ragged Flagon article - the last two bullet marks about arrows and invisibility potions. I was just wondering if that kind of edit would be acceptable/worth noting by the wiki's terms, or your own. Also, I would appreciate any constructive critisim if you feel thats suited here.

Thanks in advance,

CategoriesEdit

How should we be categorizing Skyrim pages? I've noticed editors and admins doing contradictory categorizing. I understood that categories like Category:Skyrim and Category:Locations should be abandoned in favor of categories like Category:Skyrim: Locations. Is that correct? Also, there seems to be some disparity between how character races should be categorized. For instance, I've seen Skyrim pages with Category:Nords and Category:Skyrim: Nords. Which is correct? I don't want to edit pages hundreds of times trying to keep up with everyone. Any help would be appreciated! :D --— Radical D (bother \ stalk) 10:06, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

Haha. Sorry about the name. At my other wiki, that's what everyone knows me as. Plus, I changed the preferences to include a custom signature, which this wiki didn't have. In short, I was tired of typing out everything out by hand so I transferred the sig. Anyway, I agree with you on using multiple categories. What if someone needs to find a quest but they don't remember which game it was from? That's how we categorize at my wiki, at any rate. One general category, one game- specific category, and one game category, then whatever random significant categories. My only concern was: people were deleting categories like Category:Locations or Category:Skyrim and Category:Locations from pages. And others were adding the categories back on. Just wanted to set everything straight. --— Radical D (bother \ stalk) 10:41, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

There was one last thing. I've been cleaning up Magic articles for Skyrim, especially Spells, and I wanted to know which categories those pages should have. At first, I was adding Category:Conjuration spells for example, but I saw that the one for Alteraion was deleted. So what category should be use? I'm thinking it's probably the Conjuration, Destruction, etc. categories, but I'm not sure. --— Radical D (bother \ stalk) 11:18, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

I agree with the Telekinesis. I'll start the Skyrim article here in a minute. I planned on doing it yesterday, but got distracted. At any rate, the category was Category:Alteration spells, but it seems tedious to have Category:Alteration and one for Alteration spells. It was be much simpler to have:
  • Category:Alteration
  • Category:Spells
  • Category:Skyrim: Spells

Or something of that nature... {C Edit: Now that I think of it, we might actually need to split each school of magic between games, so as not be confused with Oblivion. Like you said. But I suppose it's not a tremendously huge deal. --— Radical D (bother \ stalk) 11:30, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

I want to add a location to a category list, but I see a create page that opens up a blank text box. Its the Dwemer Ruins page - and I'm confused how to add locations I've found to it.

Alchemy Effects, where should they go? Edit

I see you removed Category:Skyrim: Alchemy Effects. Should we make a single Alchemy Effects page and link each effect name to that page#section? The problem is that every Ingredients (Skyrim) page and the Potions (Skyrim) and Alchemy (Skyrim) pages link to each effect individually by name. There is also a lot of overlap with previous games' spells (and they don't act the same). We could go through every link to an effect and link to a collected Alchemy Effects page, or redirect/disambiguate when you arrive at an Alchemy Effects page. The Potions (Skyrim) page could describe these effects, but there are many more potions than can be made with Alchemy, so that page will eventually be the wrong place to send people.

Assist the People of Hjaalmarch Deletion Edit

Had to resort to Google to solve Skyrim: Hjaalmarch: Morthal: NPCs: Jarl Idgrod Ravencrone: Quests: Assist the People of Hjaalmarch instead of this wika. With the number of questions found via Google from people stuck at 2/3 it is interesting that this source of information would be deleted in favor of vague generalities and no specific details. As an admin, it is your choice to decide where others new to the game and radiant quest system gain there information.

Problem with identically named pages Edit

{C}Good morning (my time zone)... There is a problem which may require an admin to fix on the quest "The White Phial". Apparently, Deyvid Petteys and I have been more or less simultaneously editing the quest and the quest giver pages. Now, the Quest page is mixed up with the Location page for the shop with the same name. Maybe Deyvid will fix it, but I'm going to leave it alone at this point! It may need "disambiguation" or whatever that Wiki term is...

Don't delete potions tables from ingredients! Edit

The ingredient pages need these potion lists. All the massive lists of potions are unhelpful when you're actually playing the game. When you have an ingredient and you want to find the 3rd "unknown" and combine it with something to make it known, you need that table. All others are unhelpful for this and this is the main use of the ingredient page. They're especially helpful when you need to figure out what combines most efficiently. I will revert potion table removals since this was the main contribution my wife and I have made to this wiki. It's the main thing I've used this wiki for. I'm very unhappy with the outright removal of our days of hard work without even a discussion. Martinemde (talk) 01:29, November 21, 2011 (UTC)

Ingredients Question Edit

Hi there -Ok, editing my response - after reading Martin's and your exchanges, I think I understand. 8) I think it's more a quick reference thing for the ingredient and what it can be mixed with to achieve an effect. I found it useful, but I understand your concern about what happens when things change. All they have to do is add one ingredient to the game and then we'll have numerous pages that will have to be updated.

I'm not sure how to go about it better other than putting all the ingredients on the effects pages, but then we've still got the same problem of 'what if', just on a smaller scope.

~ Trippet (Talk) 01:54, November 21, 2011 (UTC)

So I think the "what if this change" part is inevitable. There's a lot of complexity in this game related to ingredients and potions. The individual ingredients pages should be the canonical source for info. The whole system would have to change if they add more effects to old ingredients or allow new ingredients that combine with old ones in new ways.

My solution: remove all the duplicated complexity from Potions and Alchemy. These were just data dump used to create the better pages (each ingredient). The only thing we need now, and I'll probably end up adding, is a page for each effect that links back to the ingredients used to cause the effect. Then alchem just refernces the "Alchemy Effects" page and the "Ingredients" page and you go there to cross-reference what you'd like to make. Those pages list only the Effects and Ingredients respectively, without all the extra mess of data. The potions page is the ugliest of all of these since there's so many potions. I expect an Alchemy Effects page would be more useful, but I think you'll still need a list of potions somewhere. Potions doesn't need the crazy list of ingredients I put there before we had the individual pages done, but we can't remove it until links to alchemy effects produce a list of ingredients. Martinemde (talk) 02:17, November 21, 2011 (UTC)

I'll reply here to this one, so that you both can see my reply: I think this ^^ is a very good idea. Apologies to both of you if you thought I meant otherwise. I think an Alchemy Ingredients page (whether named that, or individual for each of the actual alchemy ingredients, or both) is the way to go. A list of 20-30 or so pages is maintainable, as only small changes would be needed later when ingredients are added. A list of 200-300 isnt :) Futhermore, I also agree that it should probably be removed from the Potions and Alchemy pages too, once that list is completed. So yeah - sorry if I caused any hassles for anyone. TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSee current projects 02:24, November 21, 2011 (UTC)
You guys seem to have a plan so I'll just keep adding pretty pictures. ;) Let me know if you need my help with anything! We do have this page: Ingredients_(Skyrim) and I'm sure you've seen it. For now I think the current set up is useful, but I see how it could be problematic down the road. There are some pages already for the effects, so it would be a matter of completing the addition of the effect pages, then linking back.

Anyways - yeah. I'm going to keep trying to madly add everything about the game :) For now, I'm going to let martin do what he wants with it, because, well, he seems to be invested a lot into it, whereas Im looking at the big picture of Wiki pages.

DeletionEdit

Hi, I have a request to delete the Wikia page Arch-mage Robe ([[]][[]][[]]http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Arch-Mage_Robe). I do so because at first I went to the armor section and saw that this item had no link to a detailed page. I had searched the wiki in case one had been made, but found nothing, so I started an outline while I was in school. The next day I found a page with a different name but essentially the same thing, but with all the information i had included, and more, so it would better if we used that person's rather than the one I started. Thank you for taking time to read this. Thesystem67 (talk) 21:54, November 22, 2011 (UTC)

Question about edits Edit

Hello Timeoin. After reading through the main page on this wiki, I became aware of a rule stating "Not to make any unnecessary edits to gain badges/achievment points". By unnecessary, do you mean simple things such as spelling & grammar corrections?

Add a few enhancements? Edit

Hey, I am an Administrator over at the Dead Island Wiki and i have added a lot of fun tools, templates, and javascript enhancements. I am interested in adding a few of them to this wiki. I started adding my version of an overlay template I used on the dead island wiki (an example can be seen here).

Now, i could add that without any help from you; but i want to take that template to the next level with something I added to my wiki not too long ago. I added balloon popups to the dead island wiki. Take a look at it and see if it is something you feel this wiki could use. I would love to create a version of my overlay template that uses it (am am a programmer/nerd and I find the idea of writing code exciting....). It is up to you, but i found that it is very useful on the dead island wiki.

One last thing, would it be possible for you to update your top menus to the extended wiki version? I find it impossibly difficult to navigate this wiki and it is terribly incontinent to have to go to the front page to navigate anywhere, and i am willing to bet I am not the only one who thinks so.

Final outcome for video embeddings?Edit

Hey! I found out that in this wiki video embedding is not allowed in the article page. While in many cases this is understandable, due to a video quality problems (be that production value or simply bad image quality), my question follows: if there is a high quality video available, that illustrates the topic clearly with high production value, why is not embedding such video allowed, in general? I have a feeling there must be some technical limitation that Im not aware of for these pages about this issue, since that would be the only logical explanation for it. Thousands of people do prefer having a visual tutorial on the matter, since a plain text can explain only so much. And after all, video tutorials for games are hugely popular in Youtube nowadays, as one could understand by the fact that there are huge companies build on making only gaming videos (like Machinima.com). Consequently, as a Machinima Premium Director in Youtube, my understanding doesnt extend to this topic of NOT allowing video embedding, and I truly wish that someone, with the extended knowledge, could explain to me: why video embedding in wiki pages is still such a taboo? I would very much like to understand why wiki admins and bureaucrats see video embedding as an enemy, and not as a great content addition for any page, that would serve all users more comprehensively. Why not let these 2 things, text and visual illustration, complete each other?
This same problem went off in Fallout wiki as well, few years ago, and it was never comprehensively conversed on with the people involved. I hope you could answer my question, so I could stop pondering about this matter. If these wiki pages cant have video embeddings, fine, no problem, but it'll make me and thousands of users sad. What can you do..
I apologize if my presentation here comes somewhat, well, passionate and therefore maybe little aggressive. Video making is my passion, and I hope you understand my need for this information. My intentions are only good, hopefully you can see that =) CryonBrion (Talk) 07:31, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

I shall reply here so that others can see this. Okay, I have spoken to one of the Staff members at Wikia. According to them, we are allowed to post links to the walkthroughs. Im seeking clarification on whether or not it breaches the "Fair Use" if we have them posted here or not (I dont think it does, but I also dont want Wikia to get sued either :D) I know your intentions are good! :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 08:37, November 23, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply! That sounds great!
The general "fair use" policy I understand (you'd be amazed how strict policies Machinima has with everything, making sure not to get in any trouble), but since I own all the rights of all my own videos, and Im the only admin of my channel, I can permit this wiki to use my videos freely. Videos of others, well, I guess if some video is found to be serving some article very well and its wanted on that page, it requires a permission from the video maker in Youtube. And about sues for using an embedded videos from Youtube, I wouldnt be worried about that. Every video maker can set the settings of his/her each video in Youtube as they want, and there is an option to select if the video can be embedded at other sites, out of Youtube. So if you embedd a video here, and it allows to view it as an embedding, its all good to go.
As for the IDing (is that even a word?) person for the legit video maker, it wont require other than a permission via the related Youtube channel. But of course, therein lies a possible problem: if the embedded video contains copyrighted material that is not allowed in the source platform, Youtube, I would not recommend using such video here either. As an example, if the video has some music track, lets say Limp Bizkit's song, playing, its against the copyright policies of Youtube (without a written permission for that specific video/channel from the copyright holder of that song). In gaming videos, any and all music owned by the publisher of that game is allowed, considered as "fair use". So I can make a Skyrim video with Fallout 3 music playing on the background, since Bethesda Softworks owns all the rights for both, Skyrim and Fallout series.
If ever required or needed, Im available as a "consultant" in these matters. Im more that happy to help to improve this wiki, when ever I can, how ever I can. If you have any questions about the use of Youtube videos, or other Youtube related issues, you can count on me to pursuit the answer. As a Machinima Premium Director (=partner) in Youtube, I have very good connections to people who are running the world's biggest Youtube network. If I cant answer some question myself, I can always ask people who will know, or they will contact Youtube admins directly.
I truly hope we get all things straight in this matter, so this wiki could benefit from having video tutorials on the articles. Im sure that would not only make this wiki more professional, but would only benefit everyone involved: this wiki would get more visitors, the video maker would get more views, and the users would get all the possible information related to the topic. Thats a true win-win =)
Hope to hear some good news from you soon!! CryonBrion (Talk) 06:53, November 24, 2011 (UTC)
The only other possible problem with is was if Bethesda decide we cannot host them here (which is the part that I am awaiting a response from WIkia about. If they say we can embed them, then we shall, because as you said, they are very very beneficial to everyone). However, if they say we cant, the most we can do is to link to them (which is almost as helpful, if they link to them anyway :D) As you said: its win-win :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 07:30, November 24, 2011 (UTC)

quest problemEdit

Hey,

I got Skyrim a few days ago and I have encountered a problem when trying to do the 'blood on the ice' quest.

Before I wanted to start the quest I went into the house you can buy in Windhelm (via cheats) and stole some stuff.

I wanted to then do the quest but it never showed up.

Would you know how to fix this by any chance?

Thanks

Category ProblemEdit

Hey Timeoin, it's been a while since I posted here and I am back with another problem I hope you can help me with.

I made a page about the permanent abilities in skyrim (not perks), when I was done I added categories (Skyrim, Skyrim Abilities, Abilities..) but when I go to "TES V Skyrim (menu)" > "Pages about the game" > and look in categories, even the next 200 categories, I can't seem to find the page I made. Do you know what I did wrong? Here is my link to the page I made:

Grey-Mane or Gray-Mane? Edit

No. Gray-Mane is the proper name. Greymane is the incorrect one :) Yep - if you see them listed as Grey-Mane, change them over :D And no, dont think you've failed - its because of the english language using a confusing mix of American and British English TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 15:36, November 24, 2011 (UTC)

Just to Say HiEdit

Hi Timeoin,

Just thought I'd send you a line and let you know that I exist. If you have any comments, suggestions, projects (or even encouragement!) for me, please don't hesitate to write to me (ekul.ylnam is my gmail address if you want to contact me that way).

I've done a ton of things on the wiki (listing them here would take unnecessary space) over the last couple of days at (very nearly) breakneck pace, but it's been fun. What I have done may look like a lot (or alternatively, pathetic), but I'll probably become a somewhat tamer contributor when I find a job.

What do you think of my contributions? I'd like to know if any of them are unwanted, because then I can try to avoid doing the same thing again.

Thanks,

Menu bar Edit

I wasn't at home at the time I reverted it, and the fact that I was on a terrible and very slow computer, it made me only able to revert it. I thought it was missing the most important topics, as I wrote when reverting it; "Admins" "Policies and Guidelines" etc. There was even a discussion between Rpeh and SuperGiraffe, in which Rpeh complained about UESP images being uploaded to this Wiki, and SuperGiraffe was unable to find the Policies and Guidelines (because they weren't included on the new "menu bar".

RE: Enhancements Edit

To add the popups, just add the following to the wiki's common.js

// Add Popup Script
importScriptPage('User:Jgjake2/js/ElderScrolls/Popups.js', 'deadisland');

I kept the script at the dead island wiki so i can edit it, but keep it locked. Once added, I will work on implementing it in the new overlay template. Additionally, you may want to look at the popup's documentation page; you can do a lot of cool things with it.

Also, do you need any help with the menus? I designed the ones over at the dead island wiki. I even created a few scripts that allow me to edit the items on the "on this wiki" tab (which is uneditable normally). And i can add more tabs beyond the default limit of 5. AND I can make the menus change depending the content of the pages. jgjake2  talk  contr 08:11, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

Followup: Template and Javascript Finished and Ready To Go Edit

I am nearly finished with the overlay template I told you about. here are some picture of what it looks like when the script is installed:

Examples can be found here: Template:Overlay/doc, Template:Cliffside_Retreat_Map, Template:Popup/doc

For these things to be used on the wiki, all you have to do is follow the directions here.

Right now I have limited the map to 10 popups, but once I have finished the finite details, I can open it up to 50. But standard popups can be used on any page without bounds.

All I have left to work on is getting the ajax popups to look better, and maybe I will add a few other features, but it is ready to be added anytime.

Daderic Smithing Edit

Hi Timeoin,

I would like to know why you chose to delete the Daedric Smithing perk page. It was one page of a complete set of standardised perk pages I made for the Smithing perk tree (Steel Smithing, Dwarven Smithing, Ebony Smithing, etc) - so now the set has a hole in it. Was the idea of having an individual page for each perk (with a picture of each) really so bad? And since you have deleted one, it would appear to be logical to delete them all.

Thanks, -ekulylnam. (talk) 04:01, November 27, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for responding! I'd also like to comment - I did actually see the deletion notice, and I even posted on the talk page (the deletion notice gave me that option as a way to challenge the deletion).
