Why did you change my edit? The info I provided was completely accurate. Aldage 15:58, 12 October 2007 (EDT)

Nobody changed the information you added to the page. The "needs verification" tag was added because unfortunately, we can't trust every piece of information that gets added to the site. Anyway, I just checked the Construction Set and it says Isleif is in a cell called "ICWaterfrontJairsShack," which to me indicates that the house information you added was correct. Since I'm not incredibly familiar with the Oblivion CS, however, I'd rather wait for a real confirmation of this before removing the tag. --Eshetalk16:10, 12 October 2007 (EDT)

Sorry didn't mean to say "why did you change my edit?", I meant to say why did you add verification needed.--Aldage 16:20, 12 October 2007 (EDT)

I checked the Construction Set. Isleif's initial starting position is Jair's Shack, and he also sleeps there (according to his AI schedule). This would be enough information to confirm that Isleif's house is Jair's Shack. --Timenn 18:02, 13 October 2007 (EDT)
I added the tag because the edit came from an anonymous IP rather than an established user and it didn't look right (there aren't all that many NPCs that live at another NPC's house). I didn't have any way of checking at the time and the tag is a way of getting somebody (me, if I remember) to check that the information is okay. We can't just accept every edit as fact since we want the wiki to be as accurate as possible. In this case, two people checked out the information, found it accurate and removed the tag. That's the way it's supposed to work. It's never a comment on the author if their work is tagged in this manner. --RpehTCE 02:48, 14 October 2007 (EDT)

I added the edit. --Aldage 16:49, 16 October 2007 (EDT)


Is the comment about the 'not needing handouts' really accurate? Maybe Isleif simply sees the potential of the player? --Arch-Mage Matt 04:13, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

His Dialoge entirely suggest that the handouts are money and that he won't give any to the player because he thinks they aren't poor. I doubt it's talking about the main quest, since some players won't even touch the main quest. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 04:28 on 25 December 2009


When I first started playing the game I was in the waterfront and I got one of those messages up in the corner but it said I was being pickpocketed. I turned around and Isleif was in sneak mode.This hasn't happened since then. I am playing on the 360 so there are no mods or anything like that. This may be of note on the page.

'got one of those messages that you were pickpocketed?' you get those often? i have never seen that in my game.--Arch-Mage Matt 17:15, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

I haven't seen it since then either but I remember it clearly as a friend witnessed it with me Corevette789 01:12, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Were you using a mod? I'm just asking since I haven't seen that message in over 1,000 hours of playing Oblivion. I'm not saying it's not in the vanilla game (and I do tend to feel a bit wary when I'm in the vicinity of NPCs like City Swimmer "just in case"!) but if it is, it seems to be a rare occurrence. --Vometia 01:01, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
Nope 360 I havent seen it in well over 2,000 Xbox and PC combined and I would check the CS cut I think this was something weird that I will never see again.--Corevette789 01:03, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
