Thanks for upgrading my edit to the repeatabke quests. I'm still new to this. :)

Thanks for spellcheckin--Talyyn (talk) 06:13, 3 December 2018 (UTC)g[edit]

Hey, Talyyn! Just wanted to thank you for providing some spell and grammar checking on my cintributions! It's really appresciated. Being not a native english speaker making things a bit harder. Writing most of the text via the smartphone - harder even more. So thank yoy for your work and thank you for not deleting the contributed stuff! -Listens-to-Air

No problem.
As for the sources - that's the case, because the info was gathered by simple audition of the various saxhleel throughout the game. How could I provide sources on audition? In fact I'm getting a jel word formation section writing. So how would one point sources on info that was gathered by attentive observation and analysys?
Maybe for your examples of pronunciation, reference the character's dialogue audio you are hearing? That could work.
That's the well advice, however I have no technical knowledge to coerctly capture and edit the audio. In fact I decided to write all my (obvious) conjectures as "apparently, probably, most likely" and so on, to not mislead people lik it was set and proved. On the word formation section I will try to stick to that style so I woun't be blamed for fooling people.

Welcome![edit]

Quest dialogue vs. Non Quest Dialogue[edit]

While adding dialogue to various character I'd like some confirmation. With dialogue that leads up to starting/moving a quest along, it would be added to the detailed walkthrough for the the related quest in some way. While the rest of the dialogue would end up on the character page?--Talyyn (talk) 11:21, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

All dialogue spoken by a character should be added to their page. Dialogue for a quest should be kept to a minimum, it isn't necessary to have any dialogue on a quest page, but if you do add some then it would be the most important parts.

Thank you for adding those ESO dialogues to the npc pages. Nice work! --Ilaro (talk) 23:21, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much for the cookie.--Talyyn (talk) 07:13, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

NPC stubs[edit]

Hey Talyyn, I don't really know that much about ESO npcs so maybe I am missing something, but if you believe all important dialogue, quests, etc are listed on the NPC page, could you also remove the {{Stub|NPC}} tag from the page? This way we know what NPCs still need a lot of work and which are basically finished. Thank you and great work so far! --Ilaro (talk) 13:59, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Ok will do, I'll probably have to go over the contribution list. But I can fix what I've done.--Talyyn (talk) 14:29, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

ESO - "Red" choice questions[edit]

In ESO dialogue, at times you will come across options which denote choices that cannot be undone (other than abandoning the mission). How should they be written on UESP? Until now I've just been treating them like anyone piece of dialogue but I've seen at least one case where the choices were highlighted red on the page and the other where it seemed there was an actual template used which acted as a spoiler cover for the results of selecting these red dialogue options. I don't recall which page I saw the template on though.--Talyyn (talk) 11:51, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

Yes, the template is Template:ESO Red Choice. It's not in wide use yet because it was only created fairly recently and it's going to be a bunch of work to convert them all, but I think this is the best way to keep track of all these, so that we know which options have and have not been documented. Template is fairly self-explanatory. Let me know if you have any issues with it. — TheRealLurlock (talk) 00:13, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Links[edit]

Hey Talyyn!

We do not use links in the beginning sentence of the page. Also, if you think about it, it does not make much sense. Why use link to e.g. Thornfang Pack while we already are on Thornfang Pack page? ;) We use instead bolding, and only on the subject of the article. Hugs, Tib (talk) 09:57, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

The one on Thornfang Pack was actually fine because it gets transcluded like all the other factions. Only Earl Leythen's didn't make sense because NPC pages are never transcluded. —Dillonn241 (talk) 10:09, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Skeletons[edit]

Hi Talyyn! Skeletons in ESO are actually NPCs, not creatures. I've undone your changes to the relevant pages. —Legoless (talk) 15:53, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

NPC Difficulty[edit]

Hello Talyyn, I've noticed you putting in values for NPC difficulty on the various dungeon boss pages. I would like to point out that in general we use 3 for bosses (which is the highest it goes), 2 for minibosses, 1 for elites, and 0 or "blank" for normal mobs with no pips. I'll go ahead and fix the pages for now. Contraptions (talk) 16:20, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

I've been going from the uesp ESO data I've collected. 1 = normal 2 = elite 3 = dungeon mini bosses 4 = dungeon bosses --Talyyn (talk) 16:22, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

Greetings![edit]

Heya Talyyn, are you a member of our Discord? It's a really good resource for connecting with fellow editors. I also see your about to break past 1000 edits to ESO-space, and wow is that awesome. Are you interested in starting the path to become a patroller? It's the first real step to becoming more involved with the UESP. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! --AKB Talk Cont Mail 08:06, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

Random Encounters Page[edit]

I don't know if we have something like already but here goes my idea: I've noticed while playing Elder Scrolls Online, that you can have a variety of encounters with npcs throughout the zones. I don't just mean M'aiq, the beggars and the people who can't light a campfire. I mean the things like a mage getting trouble summoning daedra, magic duels, hostages being used as bait for an ambush. I was thinking that there should be a page that catalogues these.

From the top of my head these are some Random Encounters I remember:

Base Game
  • Trader and Mercenary getting attacked by bandits.
  • Tie up person being used as bait by bandits to ambush you.
  • Cyromancer vs Pyromancer (You interfere, they both turn on you.)
  • Wild Witch vs Sorcerer
  • Daedra summoning gone wrong
  • Oblivion portals opening near you, two waves of daedra. Elite in second.
  • Plus the zone specific stuff.
Morrowind
  • Meetings between House members, some cordial some not so much.
Summerset
  • Random Maormer lost in woods.
  • Noble Hunting Party
  • Surveying team vs Gryphon

Also not sure how it would be laid out. Hmm.

Patroller[edit]

Congratulations, you're now a full patroller! If you wish, you may now add the {{User Patroller}} box to your profile.

Also, I just noticed that you don't have the "E-mail this user" function available. One of the requirements of being a staff member is to have working e-mail set up with the "Enable e-mail from other users" checked in your preferences. If you don't have an e-mail you want to use, Dave can provide you with one by contacting him on his talk page. Robin Hood  (talk) 02:13, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Email has now been confirmed and is now able to receive message. Unfortunately I won't be able to do much patrolling stuff for the next week or so, working on presentation and major essay.--Talyyn (talk) 05:39, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
Congrats! —Legoless (talk) 14:01, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Pre-Release Content[edit]

Hey Talyyn, I noticed you recently added some pre-release screenshots to Murkmire pages. Usually we try to actually remove pre-release images from articles, to be replaced by UESP screenshots. The reason for this is twofold in the ON namespace:

  • Pre-release content can be subject to change and it would therefore be preferable to use a screenshot taken from live by a wiki contributor.
  • Most of those ESO "screenshots" are in fact artistic renders rather than in-game screencaps.

There isn't really much point to adding marketing material like that to an article post-release when we already have excellent imagery which was taken by editors and complies with our image standards. Separate pages like ON:Screenshots is really the best place to archive that material. —Legoless (talk) 23:55, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
