Hello! 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:

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 and don't hesitate to contact one of our mentors if you need any help. Have fun! --Tabloes 01:21, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Shout Template[edit]

If you go to User:Chris3145/FluffTemplate you can see my work on combining cells and trying centering. The "words centered properly" and "Done, I think" edits use tables inside tables, and those have the vertical alignment correct. The "code tweak" edit is where I used the small font tags, and the vertical alignment got wonky. All cells vertical align by default, and I couldn't get vertical alignment tags to help, so I think somehow the small font edit caused some sort of white space that is also being centered.

Also, if you're looking at several different versions, you can copy them to your sandbox, but you're also free to edit them from within mine. Chris3145 01:47, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Merging Templates[edit]

Hey Fluff, Just pointing out that I think the templates should be on the Skill pages too because those may be read a little more often. Let's have them on both. His Immortal Majesty, Eric Snowmane 19:27, 9 December 2011 (UTC)


Are you interested in becoming a Patroller? Your name seems to be coming up on a lot of the Skyrim stuff I'm patrolling, and at this point, I'm pretty much automatically patrolling anything I see from you. That's usually a pretty good sign that you yourself should be a Patroller. If you're interested, you can either self-nominate or I'll nominate you, whichever you prefer. But if you're not, don't let me push you into it. <push, shove> Robin Hoodtalk 23:45, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure if I meet the criteria (specifically, the content edit count), but I wouldn't mind patrolling. As it is, I look through Recent Changes when I'm finished with my watchlist to see if I can catch anything at random. There's not a lot I can add to the Skyrim namespace content-wise, but if I can help by doing some of the administrative grind work, I'd be happy to. --Fluff 04:17, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
You do indeed meet the requirements: see! ;) Right now, we don't need Patrollers who can add content (though that's good too, of course), just people who can say "this isn't utter crap" and who can fix spelling/grammar mistakes when otherwise-good material is added. I've taken the above as acceptance and nominated you. You should post to the the page and indicate your acceptance there. Robin Hoodtalk 04:30, 5 January 2012 (UTC)


Your nomination for patrollership has ended in your favor. Enjoy your new responsibilities. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 00:42, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Thieve's Guild Discussion Cleanup - "Mysterious Gems"[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you've done a lot of nice cleanup work. I came along behind you here: It was getting a little complicated, and I tried to clean it up while maintaining as many comments as made sense. If you're not watching the page, please take a look and let me know what you think. Basically, I thought that the comment about "dropping a load" was purely vandalism, and the main change I wanted to make was to get rid of it. --Jreynolds2Talk 05:57, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Aye, I've noticed that particular dialog before. Since I've been a patroller for all of seven hours, I wasn't quite sure how to deal with it since the edit that added the "dropping a load" had already been patrolled and was apparently okay. In my opinion, it probably should have been patrolled away to begin with. Usually talk pages aren't edited to the same standard as the content pages, but in this case I think it's appropriate. --Fluff 07:16, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I patrolled that one. Per Vandalism (see "Altering Comments"), what you did is acceptable. As a general rule, we try not to remove well-intentioned or relatively harmless profanity (e.g., "WTF?"). Cases like this one are harder to decide. Was it out-and-out vandalism or just a poor attempt at humour? By the time I got to it, it was almost four weeks old, and with the massive amounts of edits/patrolling, I just decided it wasn't worth worrying about about at that point—all the more so since it had been replied to already, which would've required additional editing and explaining, etc. (Though looking more closely, I realized that that probably wasn't necessary.) I think what you did is perfectly reasonable except that, as you may have noticed by now, I would take it one step further and just remove the entire thing. Putting comments like "nonsense deleted" only disrupts the conversation, and will probably make people go back to check the history. Leaving it out lets the discussion flow as it probably should have in the first place. If there had been noteworthy commentary in there, I probably would've edited it closer to what you did, but the replies that were there really didn't add anything to the discussion.
