Hey CCC, I am actually enjoying Oblivion more and more... :) I have been thinking a little but this week has been so hectic at work and I haven't spent so much time here as I did over the holidays, I wanted to observe the activities a little more before I make up my mind. Will get back to you soon about it. EbonySkyrim (talk) 23:12, January 18, 2013 (UTC)
- Hey CCC, if you think I can handle to be a patroller you can nominate me :) EbonySkyrim (talk) 00:53, January 21, 2013 (UTC)
Re: Sandbox and templatesEdit
Hey CCC, to create your own sandbox you just need to create the page User:Cheatcodechamp/Sandbox. However, if you want to experiment with creating templates you will have to create a real template page on the Template: namespace. For example, creating the page Template:TestTemplate. This can be marked for deletion once you are done, or if you don't need it anymore. You can also do this on the Sparticus Wikia, because yes, the wikis on Wikia do follow the same wiki markup code.
Hey, I saw your post on the forums about adding stubs which can make all of the games get mushed up together and become confusing. Maybe we should add an argument to the stub template (stuff after the barline) which specifies which game it is, if it's a location, etc.? That's kind of how it works already with Template:Attention, so what are your comments on adding that kind of functionality to Template:Stub? Also, should I ask Tomb, Flight, etc.?

Removing bug fixesEdit
If it provides a confirmed fix and is worded appropriately then yes the bug fix can stay on the page. Fixes to a bug should be short and to the point. If the fix would contain a lot of information, then it is better suited for the talk page, as pages with paragraphs of fixes will clutter the bugs section. Usually a PC console command will be noted as a fix if the bug is happening on the PC version, and that is fine. —TombRaiser SPEAK! 06:25, February 16, 2013 (UTC)
Image Martin SeptimEdit
Hey CCC, finally I have some new images of Martin. I have added one in the info box but I suspect he will have his royal clothes soon in the story. I've just completed the Great Gate quest. So when I have one of him in his royal clothing I'll add that one in the infobox and the other to the gallery. Have a look Martin Septim. EbonySkyrim (talk) 23:27, February 16, 2013 (UTC)
Re blogs and forumsEdit
Hey CCC, I'm not sure as I've never thought about it but in the forum you can remove messages. I saw that as I was about to delete the one above my reply yesetrday in the MOTM thread. But I decided to let it be. Check if you also can do that, it's under the more button. Haven't checked in blogs and I just did and I could not edit. :) EbonySkyrim (talk) 08:04, February 26, 2013 (UTC)
As per your request. Edit
I am unsure if your request in the image request section was ever completed, so I decided to take the necessary screenshots while I was playing on my newest Oblivion character.
They haven't been altered in any way, and are still in their original .jpg format and original screen size, so they will likely require editing to some degree. I left the editing to you, as I was unsure what you had in mind. Some have alternates, in the case the first was unsatisfactory. If you require me to redo a screenshot, do not hesitate to ask.
I would imagine that whatever screenshots that are not utilized shall be deleted in the monthly clean up, so I would not think that you are required to delete any that are not used.
Without further ado,
- I only found that image request page a few days ago, If I had known about it I would have worked on it sooner, heh. I'm glad that you have use for them. Tarkastio (talk) 20:06, March 5, 2013 (UTC)
I was going to do those images from the Drop Dead orders, I had not forgotten them, I was in fact close to doing them now but I was trying to update as many Oblivion and Shivering Isles articles on the way and it has taken some time. :) EbonySkyrim (talk) 21:09, March 5, 2013 (UTC)
Something to doEdit
Re Image requestEdit
- Hi CCC, I've made it to the Arcane University now and got some new images of the Mage Apprentice. I had to redeem my Hero first as she had too many infamy points :) EbonySkyrim (talk) 23:24, April 20, 2013 (UTC)
Re: Image botEdit
It was Elchzard who set up a bot that deletes images. You can try to get in contact with him about setting one up for your other wiki, or if you can't get in contact with him, then you could try asking over at Community Central. —TombRaiser SPEAK! 21:13, April 16, 2013 (UTC)
Forum spam Edit
Looks like the comment was already removed. Also, I'm not sure if this is the right place to report it or not, but I also posted it to the VSTF board, so I hope they'll take care of the other things that IP does. Anyway, thanks for telling me even though I was asleep ;) I saw it in the morning just now. Kroq-gar78 (talk) 17:44, May 11, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know.
Good Daedric Princes Edit
Re Inter wikia FavorEdit
Hey, I was wondering, how do you feel about the first Aldmeri Dominion? Not the one in Skyrim, but the one in TESO.—This unsigned comment is by StormKhajiit (talk • contribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
Re: Revert Edit
Hey CCC, doing well? :)
I came here because I wanted to talk with you in private about a..."thing", it's not a BIG of a deal but I wanna know your honest opinion and I don't think it's appropriate to talk about it on a wikia forum. So I wondered if you have anything else except for Facebook so we could talk private? :) -- Aetherium (talk) 19:30, August 4, 2013 (UTC)
My frequent editsEdit
Thanks for the feedback. One reason I do a lot of smaller edits is that the laptop on which I do my editing (in front of my PS3 setup) has a "back" key right above the cursor left key. If I hit that key by accident, it goes back to just viewing the page and I lose all the edits I have done. I've lost 30 minutes to an hour of work enough times that now I just try to save frequently.
I'm also doing this as I am going through these places for the first time, so I'm not sure what I will turn up next as unclear, etc., since I want to be as accurate as possible. Finally, I often get done with an edit, then read it again and realize one more change I want to make.
I will try to make sure I review everything before I save to cut down on the number. However, the issue of losing edits is a big deal for me, and the only way to avoid it would be to just copy the entire page source into a separate editor, edit it there, then paste it back in. If I am undertaking a large edit, I will try to do just that in the future. Sorry - I really wasn't trying to pad my edit numbers. :-) Cubears (talk) 07:32, August 10, 2013 (UTC)
Thoughts on second personEdit
CCC, I decided to write up a piece on how to watch for and avoid using the second person. It's on my talk page underneath my bio (http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Cubears). It's probably too long right now, but I wanted to get some examples in and have the entire thing build. I'd appreciate it if you looked it over and let me know what you think. Cubears (talk) 05:38, August 13, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestions. I had never paid attention to the profile or blog tabs before. I've moved them there now. Cubears (talk) 23:44, August 13, 2013 (UTC)Edit
Journal Entries for Quest ArticlesEdit
CCC, one of the things I've started adding in my quest article updates is journal entries. I saw them being added to other articles, and just thought I should add them as well to mine in order to finish up all necessary edits. For example, see what I did to The Silence Has Been Broken. However, they require a bit of work to create and make editing more time-consuming. So, before I keep doing this, I was wondering whether they really are wanted. What do you think? Is there a quest article template anywhere that shows what all the desired pieces are?
- That's exactly what I'm doing (copying an existing journal and modifying). The only concern I have is whether these journals infringe on Bethesda's copyrights because they directly quote text from the game.
- By the way, I used the word "template" when I should have said "example". Do we have an example quest article that shows all the pieces that should be part of a complete article? Cubears (talk) 19:16, August 19, 2013 (UTC)
Re: Possible project and adviceEdit
We do already have the Voice Cast page that lists voice actors. There are currently 3 individual pages for the voice actors on the wiki, which covers a basic summary of their work. I think if we do make more individual pages for voice actors it should not become too large, as it's main focus should be a on their work in The Elder Scrolls games. If people seek more detailed information about the actor, then the voice actor's IMDB page can be linked on their wiki page. The only pages we have right now are; Max von Sydow, Lynda Carter, and Jeff Baker. —TombRaiser SPEAK! 17:56, October 7, 2013 (UTC)
Re: Tending the FlamesEdit
I don't know why we don't have the end results for the King Olaf's Verse. Probably because no one wanted to go through the quest that many times to get each ending? But, yeah, feel free to do that and get all seven endings. —TombRaiser SPEAK! 19:05, November 26, 2013 (UTC)
Re: Live ChatEdit
Happy new year to you too! The type of bot you're talking about is something like what Elchazrd and Kashiro have set up in the IRC (ie: Akatosh). I have much going on right now and afraid I don't have the time to request a chatbot. If we did request a chatbot, it would have to go through Sactage, and his reposes are not always that quick.
Asking to be nominated. Edit
Hi triple C, yeah it has been a while. I am ok considering what has happened in the last 5 months IRL. I am also currently very in to The Witcher as I got the first 2 games for almost free on Steam and I love it... so at the moment I just go into Morrowind and occasionally the other TES games to get some new images and add some to the articles. The chat hasn't been that interesting for me unfortunately, I haven't participated as much as I thought. But I was stunned to hear what was discussed there so I did leave a few comments at first. Tomb is the one that has been involved more so I have just read the thread now and then..
One reason why I don't go into chat so much is because I feel the conversations are not in my taste. I feel a bit too old too, to interact when it's not about the wiki or the games. The few times I have been there lately I noticed a lot of inmature behaviour and remarks.. the talk was about nothing really.. not interesting. I don't really know what to do more than what you say, more admins more often.. but it's hard to make people be mature, especially when you don't really know their age. When people ignore warnings and others just behave so you in the end have to block etc.. that wasn't the purpose of the chat anyway, it was to be helpful in a more easier way first and foremost, then of course one can interact in a more personal way but not to the extent it has become. In all the hundreds of hours I have played Morrowind to Skyrim, I have never come across any character using more mature things than weapons and the occational drugs like Skooma.. nothing sexual so why do they need to talk about this in the chat.. that is unbelievable. That is unfortunately what I can say at the moment. Are you on Steam btw? —EbonySkyrim Message! 23:33, March 11, 2014 (UTC)
I've been part of the ESO beta for quite a while now, so my enthusiasm isn't what it used to be, but I am still looking forward to being able to play it whenever I can, and not only on a 3-day-weekend basis.
About replacing profanities with emoticons in chat, that was actually something that Flightmare had mentioned a couple weeks ago. I'm not sure how effective doing that would be though. I mean for one, we would have to list a bunch of profanities on our Emoticon page where it is visible to everyone as a "usable" emoticon. Another concern is that it can invite the spamming of emoticons. I'm not often in chat, for various reasons, but now that we have KINMUNE (chat bot) keeping logs of the chat, it might deter people from disrupting and misbehaving in chat. —TombRaiser SPEAK! 00:58, March 13, 2014 (UTC)
Calling all patrollers to please remember to scout the Special:Newpages. Right now there are several hundred pages needing to be patrolled as many new pages are created these days. I have myself done a lot in the last couple of days but if you have the time, please help. Thanks... —EbonySkyrim Message! 13:30, March 13, 2014 (UTC)
- Hi CCC, well I guess we can trust them being genuine as we don't really know who has been in the beta. Except those who have admitted it now. Use your own judgement and if in doubt ask Tim as he has been there. —EbonySkyrim Message! 09:08, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
Hey CCC, I'm pretty good, I've been busy on another wiki too.
The problem is that you have <mainpage-leftcolumn-start/> twice, because it's in the template as well on the actual main page. You'll need to remove the <mainpage-leftcolumn-start/> from Template:MainPage and add the template back to the main page directly underneath <mainpage-leftcolumn-start/>. Let me know if you have any other problems with this. Balagog gro-Nolob (The Gourmet is listening) 07:07, March 18, 2014 (UTC)
Hey, we've RP'ed before. Haven't seen you in chat for a long time. (RPFan http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:RPFan )
