Page Justification[edit]

Since ZOS announced that they're considering adding seasonal events, I figured it would be prudent to start this page early. The current list isn't very exciting, but 2015's two f2p periods seem noteworthy enough to document somewhere. I haven't tagged the page as incomplete but I have a feeling I might've missed a notable promo or two. —Legoless (talk) 21:21, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

Future Events[edit]

If the Witches Festival is any indication, it seems major events will be tested on PTS before going live. Is it worth adding these to the page in advance? —Legoless (talk) 22:40, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

I don't see why not. If we have the necessary details, we might as well go ahead and add them. (Possibly Pre-Release tagged, for safety.) --Enodoc (talk) 08:06, 10 August 2016 (UTC)
Added a short blurb. —Legoless (talk) 17:27, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

Arrange events in reversed chronological order[edit]

I have a suggestion that we arrange the events in reversed chronological orders in years. Users are most likely to go to this page for current events. We will have to scroll all the way down towards the end of the page. The page will only get longer and longer. BTW, I see that other event pages have been in reversed chronological order.— Unsigned comment by Aquablaze (talkcontribs) at 15:38 on 14 October 2019

Yeah, I think that's fair. I usually use the table of contents to get to the bottom, but reverse order makes sense. --Jimeee (talk) 15:55, 14 October 2019 (GMT)

Splitting Page into Years[edit]

Looking at the now really long TOC, I feel it would be prudent to move previous year events into their own pages Online:Events/20XX and have a 2D TOC to navigate to previous years. It would also allow us to add images if we wished, without them being pushed down.--Talyyn (talk) 04:17, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, I'd agree with that. I considered doing this a few years back as I could see the page was only going to get longer and longer. The time is right, although a ton of links will need to be fixed. --Jimeee (talk) 13:26, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

Future Events[edit]

1) Can we have the future events not hidden with a single line of plain text? Preferably something that says "No future events are currently scheduled", and when an new event comes up then that can be hidden and the next event details be placed within.

2) Zenithar's event from last year (and is upcoming this month) is not listed at all. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 09:15 on 14 July 2023 (UTC)

That future events section is more of a work in progress area for upcoming announced events before they get added to the page proper. Feel free to add a line outside the hidden text. Regarding Zeal of Zenithar, we have a page for the event and pretty decent coverage, but obviously we have neglected to add a short entry to the list page here as well. This doesn't need to be overly long; have a look at Online:Events/2017 for some examples if you want to try your hand. —⁠Legoless (talk) 09:20, 14 July 2023 (UTC)
