Did you die?[edit]

I sure hope not. But for real, I hope you're doing all right. I haven't seen any of your edits in a while. =\ Alphabetface 14:25, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

I already responded on your talk page, but for the sake of my faithful followers (hah.), I'm just incredibly distracted with home life. Thanks for checking in, though! –SkoomaManiac 14:23, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Nice catch![edit]

Thanks for catching the "overemphasis" on the Torture Victims page. I wasn't sure about the bold but wasn't gonna do anything unless someone else agreed. Lord EydvarTalk 02:56, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

You're welcome! Better to over-edit than to leave something be that's wrong. It can always be undone. Although in this case, the Style Guide has a very clear stance on the matter. Thanks for double checking me! —SkoomaManiac 03:02, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Yeps, I just did some fixing of The Rift article that I'm pretty sure is right. Previous editor went on for 2 sentences about the elk and deer... Lord EydvarTalk 03:06, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Looks right to me! -SkoomaManiac 03:10, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
Yep that's what I thought. Thanks for confirming since edit wars always suck ROFL Lord EydvarTalk 03:13, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Patroller Nomination[edit]

Honestly, I can't wait until you qualify to be a Patroller as we could use a few more at this point. One of the best ways to get your content-space edits up is to pick a project. There's a few on UESPWiki:Task List#Skyrim, but feel free to make up your own. An easy-ish one is to pick Stub articles for quests or places, then just go through everything in-game and do what you can to flesh out the related articles. Just some thoughts.

Awesome. Thanks, Robin. I'll try to hurry! :)—SkoomaManiac 13:49, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

does this help?[edit]

[[ Skyrim:Stubs]]

[Skyrim:Stubs] is what that would look like

[[:Category:Skyrim_Stubs|]] It just needs the : infront of it. Skyrim Stubs — Kimi the Elf (talk | contribs) 00:02, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
Hey, I just learned something new myself! Thanks Kimi :) ABCface 00:04, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
Beautiful... Thanks guys! —SkoomaManiac 13:14, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Note on Archiving[edit]

Hey, I just noticed the few pages you archived recently, and wanted to point something out on that. The Archiving Guidelines page states that "The only sections of the talk page that are eligible for archiving are those where the discussion has been inactive (meaning that there have been no new additions to the discussion) for at least one week (preferably longer)." There are some posts you archived which probably should have remained on the un-archived page a little longer. For instance, this edit to the Glitches talk page is only four days old and no response had yet been posted, so I wouldn't have considered the discussion inactive just yet (although at this point, a related change has been made to the article page). In general, I try to stick to the 'preferably longer' part of that archiving guideline by only archiving discussions which are one month old. While a full month isn't necessary (for instance, the Skyrim Easter Eggs page has so many additions on a regular basis that the one week rule is usually sufficient for that page), try to at least stick to the one week rule as stated in the guidelines. I wouldn't worry about the ones you've already done, but just a little tip for the future. Otherwise, good job on taking initiative to do maintenance tasks like that. :) ABCface 21:22, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, Alphabetface. I was working to stay awake, which is probably not where my best edits lie. Retrospectively, I didn't even look at the bottom of the list. Sorry. —SkoomaManiac TalkContribs 22:19, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
No need to apologize, it's not a big deal at all. I just figured I'd point it out for any future archiving you may do. :) ABCface 01:31, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Dremora Lore Article[edit]

Hey, SkoomaManiac! I noticed your edit to the Dremora lore article and figured I'd help clear that up by providing you with this link. I was a little confused by AKB's edit as well before I read that. Happy editing!--Kalis AgeaYes? Contrib E-mail 04:23, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

I noticed that AFTER I reverted the edit. Silly me. Thanks for clearing that up, Kalis! —SkoomaManiac TalkContribs 14:32, 12 April 2012 (UTC)


I've just granted you the red exclamation points ;). Congratulations and welcome to the team! eshetalk 17:42, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Yes, congratulations! Enjoy your never-ending sea of red exclamation marks! Now get back to work! • JATalk 17:45, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
Congratulations. You have now lost the privilege of sleeping at night :) Vely►Talk►Email 17:54, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, guys!! I look forward to not sleeping with you. —SkoomaManiac TalkContribs 17:57, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
LOL! Nice comeback, Skooma. :) Welcome to the team! Robin Hoodtalk 19:22, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
I would like to throw in my congrats as well, Skooma. Welcome to the never ending war against the exclamation marks. ESQuestion?EmailContribs 19:37, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
Yay Skooma! What they^ said. :) ABCface 20:42, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

() Oh my god! I totally didn't mean it like that!!!!! Haha!! —SkoomaManiac TalkContribs 22:04, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

It's our curse![edit]

Good luck with the school situation. Don't worry about disappearing so soon after your's UESP's curse. It seems like almost every time someone becomes a Patroller, they disappear soon after. :-/ At least in your case, we know when you're coming back. Robin Hoodtalk 20:01, 17 April 2012 (UTC)


Happy happy birthday! ABCface 21:14, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Happy birthday :) Vely►t►e 21:20, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
Happy Birthday! In some countries, it might now be legal for you to consume Skooma! ;) Robin Hoodtalk 23:59, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Are you returning?[edit]

Hey, Skooma. I noticed that what was originally supposed to be a month long break has become nearly 5. Are you still lurking on the site or should I remove you from the Mentor program, which, as of almost 2 months ago, you are technically no longer eligible to be in? Snowmane(talkemail) 02:53, 12 September 2012 (GMT)

Perhaps someday, alas, not night now. Too busy. I'd be a liability. I'll remove my own name. —SkoomaManiac (talk) 10:57, 12 September 2012 (GMT)
Well, that's disappointing. Nevertheless, when you do return, we'll be glad to have you back. ThuumofReason (talk) 14:38, 12 September 2012 (GMT)

Semi-welcome back![edit]

Good to see you contributing again! --Xyzzy Talk 02:34, 30 July 2013 (GMT)

Thanks! I don't know how much of a help I can be what with my prolonged absence, but I can patrol here and there and do some correcting. It's good to be back here and there. :D —SkoomaManiac (talk) 19:17, 31 July 2013 (GMT)
