UESPWiki:Lore Places Project

UESPWiki: Projects(Redirected from UESPWiki:LPP)

This project's aim is to clean up and standardize all of the pages within the Lore-Places category. These pages (as with all pages in the Lore namespace) are meant to give a general overview of their subjects which is independent from the actual games. Many of the pages do not meet these standards, and this project was created in order to address that problem.

How You Can HelpEdit

  • Add a summary to every place page in Lore space.
  • Clean up all articles for places seen in games - many of these still have game-specific info that does not belong on Lore pages. This should be moved to the game-spaces for the games in which they appear.
  • Add in-game images where appropriate. Most of the articles have images in their game-space but not Lore space. We can just use the same images. Transclusion onto the Lore Places list pages is not a problem since the summary templates are "noinclude"d anyhow. Obviously not much can be done about locations not seen in games.
  • Wherever possible, place pages should include a map. In particular in the case of cities and other settlements, this should be a map of the region/province showing where the settlement is located, and NOT a map of the settlement itself (which is game-specific and should stay in the game space). Also, we should NOT be using maps which do not actually feature the settlement in question. For example, many of the Morrowind articles were using the LO-map-Morrowind (Oblivion Codex).jpg image, which features a grand total of 4 cities on Vvardenfell. On any other place page, this should not be used because it doesn't contain information relevant to that page! These have been removed in the process of adding summaries, but surely we could come up with a map which does show the location.

Hidden CategoriesEdit

These categories do not appear listed on the articles, as they have been tagged with the {{hiddencat}} template.
