Re: Added category[edit source]
Hejsan, nej jag har inte skapat denna wiki.. från början var det flera men när Skyrim kom så slog de ihop dem till denna och Timeoin tog över som så kallad founder. Jag gick med och blev medlem i januari 2012 och började så småningom att hjälpa till att skriva och ladda upp bilder och blev med tiden också administratör. Jag har gjort mycket, därav så många som nästan 53.000.. eftersom denna wiki är på engelska så måste man skriva meddelandet på engelska också.
Hi, no I'm not the founder of this wiki, from the start there where several and they joined together when Skyrim came out and Timeoin took over as a founder. I joined in january 2012 and have been editing since and finally I became an admin. I have edited a lot and that is why I have so many as almost 53.000 edits now.

Re: New message[edit source]
Hi, I saw your message on Pelinal Whitestrake's talk page the other day. Unfortunately, Pelinal isn't as active here as he used to be and probably won't see your message for a while, so I'll attempt to answer your questions as well as I can. The Enantiomorph article on the wiki writes the following regarding Padomay, Anu, and Nir:
The Catalyst, while not fully understood, is possibly a new creation birthed through the convergences of an Enantiomorph. What is know about this role is that it can bring about both the begining and/or a ending to an Enantiomorph. The best example of such a role is the creation of the deity, Nir, who was formed by the interplay of Anu's light and Padomay's darkness. It is likely that the person who takes the role of the catalyst is a metaphorical representation of the Enantiomorph itself.
I'm far from a loremaster, and honestly the Enantiomorph is one of the concepts in the series that is maybe a bit over my head. You can probably understand what that really means a lot better than I can. The Annotated Anuad goes into a bit more detail about Nir too:
As Anu and Padomay wandered the Void, the interplay of Light and Darkness created Nirn. Both Anu and Padomay were amazed and delighted with her appearance, but she loved Anu, and Padomay retreated from them in bitterness.
Nir became pregnant, but before she gave birth, Padomay returned, professing his love for Nir. She told him that she loved only Anu, and Padomay beat her in rage. Anu returned, fought Padomay, and cast him outside Time. Nir gave birth to Creation, but died from her injuries soon after.
Nir made "the twelve worlds of creation" and, as The Annotated Anuad goes on to tell, those worlds were shattered by Padomay upon his second return. Anu later combined the remnants of the worlds into one world, creating Nirn. It's very probable that the word "Nirn" was derived from "Nir."
I suppose you could read the wiki article about Anu, or you could always look directly at the sources listed on the articles, which actually might give you a better understanding of who's who. We used to have an article on the Godhead but it was deleted by a former administrator (I still don't know why, I'll have to look into that a bit more). Here is a link to C0DA if you want to give it a read. I have no idea what any of it really means, but I do know that just about everything in it is highly contentious and even mentioning it can easily spark a debate, as we've seen quite a bit on the wiki so far.
I would recommend you play some of the other games (Skyrim is good, but not great lore-wise)—Morrowind in particular is probably the most spectacular game in the series in terms of lore, and you could probably learn a lot by playing through it.
I hope this could help a little bit? We have two active loremasters on the wiki currently, Dovahsebrom and ShawnCognitionCP, both of whom would likely be happy to help you out in whatever way possible and would most certainly give a better explanation than I have. And I don't know how knowledgeable you are about lore already but giving this guide a shot if you haven't already can't hurt either. So... yeah, hope this helped at least somewhat. —Atvelonis (talk) 02:50, October 5, 2015 (UTC)

Re: The Wabbajack and the Jabberwock[edit source]
The way it was written sounded like speculation, especially since you use the word "might" in the entry. I can see where you might see a possible inspiration, due the nonsensical nature of both. However, if you want to add trivia like that, if possible, you should try to find confirmation from the developer that the Wabbajack is a reference to Jabberwock. If you can't find any thing to confirm the relation, it's best not to add that information. The Cat Master (talk) 18:56, February 6, 2017 (UTC)
