Summary

This template can be used to indicate a misspelling or other error in the game or source materials (such as the physical books or Bethesda/ZeniMax web content). Hover text will appear indicating that the word should not be edited and, optionally, what the correct text should have been.

If you see this template next to an error, please do not correct it, as this means that the error is in the game or source materials, and should be preserved on the site.

Parameters

2 optional The correct text.
description optional If the error isn't obvious, use this parameter to give some extra detail about the problem.
