What Goes Here
There are a couple of other wikis and other information sources out there on mods, such as Planet Elder Scrolls, Fliggerty, and the Nexus. So, we would like to distinguish ourselves from them in the way we approach mod information:
- Depth over Breadth: Cover fewer mod and mod subjects, but when we do so, do so in depth.
- No Stubs! Do not begin a mod page until you're ready to write an in-depth article.
- No Readmes! Do not post the readme here.
- No Reviews!
- Utility over Exhaustion
- In addition to the rules above, we also want to make sure that details should only be given to the depth that is likely to be useful to most mod players.
- I.e. the goal is not to exhaustively document every fact about a given mod, but rather to produce guides that are genuinely useful to players of that mod.
- In effect (combining this with the "Depth over Breadth" rule), this means that only fairly complicated mods should be documented here.
- Quickstart Guide - Start playing.
- Modders — Directory of modders. Lost a modder? Look here!
- Morrowind.ini - Tips and guidelines on editing the Morrowind.ini file.
- Mod Acronyms - MPP, MCP, Common acronyms for mods, etc.
- Mod Glossary - Commonly used terms in working with mods.

Once you start using a lot of mods with Morrowind, you'll find yourself running into a number of problems. This section is intended to help you manage your mods and savegames and resolve the problems that you'll encounter.
Note that some problems (especially Dirty Saves) are more easily prevented than repaired! So a little reading now may save you some grief later.
