Welcome![edit]

Hello Vyraesi! Welcome to UESPWiki! It's always good to have new members. If you would like to help improve any of our pages, you may want to take a look at the following links:

If you would like to spice up your userpage, click here for a list of userboxes you can use, including a guide to making your own.

When you're editing, it's always a good idea to leave edit summaries to explain the changes you have made to a particular page, and remember to sign your talk page posts with four tildes ~~~~. Also, the "show preview" button is a great way to view the changes you've made so far without actually saving the page (our patrollers really appreciate it!).

Feel free to practice editing in the sandbox or discuss the games on the forums. If you need any help, don't hesitate to contact one of our mentors. Have fun! •WoahBro►talk 20:43, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Silly Question[edit]

But all the Pre-Release clockwork city items being added. They are publicly available aren't they? They arent PTS only? Timeoin (talk) 08:53, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

Strong-Voice NPC image[edit]

Hi Vyraesi, you have uploaded a new version of ON-npc-Strong-Voice.jpg without leaving a comment about the file changes. What were the reasons for replacing the image? In the file history, you can see that your upload is basically a revert of my image from July 2015 as it is very similar to Alarra's screenshot from August 2015. As I've stated in my comment, the reason for my new upload was that my screenshot shows the full body of the NPC. "NPC images should show as much of the NPC as possible, preferably performing some kind of action, but the priority is to create an image that allows clear and easy visual identification of the NPC." (see Help:Images#Image Standards and UESPWiki:Style Guide/NPC Layout). It takes a while and a few attempts to make good full body screenshots of ESO NPCs standing behind counters, and I think that my image meets the standards, shows as much of Strong-Voice as possible including her environment, allows easy identification of the NPC and has good lighting and contrast. That's why I'd like to revert the file back to my version. I hope you're okay with it? :) Holomay (talk) 10:57, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

I believed we were moving towards portrait images of all NPCs, hence the change. The head in the full body image also blends in with the background. Vyraesi (talk) 11:11, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
I remember this discussion about full body vs. portrait shots, but it didn't lead to any conclusion, and the policy that the images should show as much of the NPC is still in effect. It's often diffcult to take full body screenshots of ESO NPCs, so it's better to upload dialogue view images rather than none at all. I agree that the head in your image has a better background, and the higher resultion is another improvement. However, I think that a new upload of an image should not just provide other improvements, but build upon / add to the improvements of the images(s) before. The dialogue views of NPCs are always brighter, but this is achieved by the engine highlighting the NPC and darkening/blurring the background, leading to a view that differs considerably from what the game world and the NPCs actually look like - there are no strong, realistic shadows anymore, contrasts are dull, reflections and glow are mostly gone, a lot of depth, three-dimensionality and atmosphere that can be captured in out-of-dialogue shots is missing. I don't mind my screenshot being replaced, I just hope that it won't happen to all the images of stubborn ESO NPCs that I (or other users) have finally convinced to stand straight and pose in front of the camera. ;) Holomay (talk) 19:28, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
I've restored the full body image, per the discussion linked above. No consensus was reached to replace full body images with cropped "dialogue" images. My reading of that discussion is that we accept both in the Online namespace, but I don't see the need to crop out the NPC's legs when we already have a high quality version showing the full body. Obviously full body will not always be preferable (such as in areas with poor lighting), but we might as well display the subject matter as clearly as possible if we have the option, i.e. without a table in the way. —Legoless (talk) 23:04, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

Outfit Stations[edit]

I saw your edits to {{Online Place Summary}}. At a glance, they look good, but I don't play ESO myself, so I don't know what you were aiming for exactly. If you can tell me what you wanted to happen vs. what actually happened, I'll see if I can get it working. Robin Hood  (talk) 17:03, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

A favor?[edit]

Hey, I noticed you have added many ESO books from the DLCs into the ON namespace (thanks!). I have been moving over the loreworthy books en masse into the lorespace when the DLC is released. Can do me a huge favor and use either the Lore Link template when adding links in the body text - or just leave them unlinked? It makes my job so much easier because ON links are not allowed in the lorespace so I need to manually find and change each and every one. Thanks! --Jimeee (talk) 15:02, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Razum-dar's Journal[edit]

Hi, I see that you created the pages for the journal entries from the the Alinor Codex book from the Summerset Isle CE. Did you do the transcription from the physical book? If so, first: wow that is a lot of work, so thank you, and second: do you still have access to the book? There are a few typos being identified that I'm curious to see if they are in the original text or were accidents during the transcribing. Specifically: One and Two. If you have time to take a quick look, I'd appreciate it. Thanks! -- Hargrimm(T) 20:29, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for getting the unfurnished houses on PTS[edit]

Normally I have to do both furnished and unfurnished, and that requires waiting a few weeks for the PTS to reset so I can buy the other version. This way we got it done much quicker than usual... — TheRealLurlock (talk) 03:13, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

You're welcome, Lurlock. I'll try and do that whenever new houses come on the PTS. Vyraesi (talk) 21:26, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Great Images for Elsweyr Pre-Quest[edit]

A big thanks for the images of the Elsweyr pre-quests. Those are some really amazing shots! Skotharr-do (talk) 16:26, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

Hey, thank you. Glad someone appreciates them! :P Vyraesi (talk) 21:26, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
