    Is it possible to display a table from on page, in a section of a separate page?  I have been updating all the trainer lists on the Trainer (Morrowind) page to a standard format and with new info. I have also been working to improve the Skills (Morrowind) pages for each available skill. What I would like to do is keep the Trainer page tables as the source, and display them on their respective skill page as well. That way if someone is on a skill page they have the pertinent trainer information right there. This would allow a single source table (on the trainer page) that can be updated. As opposed to having a separate table on two pages (trainer and skill page) that could wind up having different information.

    Page standardization

    December 13, 2011 by DLanyon

    It seems like every wiki goes through this process at some point. And we (TES wiki contributors) are at that point now. As the wiki grows and more folks flock to it to help add information, pages become jumbled, information is left lying around and misplaced. In oeder to help improve the wiki as during this growing spurt, it is imperative that contributors, large or small, all agree to work towards improvement. This is accomplished in part by ALL contributors using an aggreed upon standardized page layout for each category, or has it may be referred to: a page preload. What this does is ensures that ALL pages within a given category have an identical layout. This layout is improtant to ensures editors place the information in thepr…

    Map Icons

    November 29, 2011 by DLanyon

    As I am looking at the in game map, I realize that Bethesda put some time and effort into creating a distinct set of icons to represent the different types of locations represented on the map. Has anyone pulled the icon images from the game or started a page that lists each icon and which type of location it represents? Most are readily apparent, each major city is marked by its shield/crest, smaller towns use the "inn" symbol. Some are not so easily identified. Here is a partial list:

    • Shield = major city/ capital city
    • Inn = town
    • Bear paw print = Stormcloak camp
    • Mammoth = giant camp
    • Rook (single tower) = fort or watch tower
    • Crossed pickaxe/ hammer = mine
    • Windmill = farm
    • Standing stone = standing stone
    • Dragon head = dragon
    • Horseshoe = stable
