User talk:Maroonroar

Welcome! =DEdit

Hello Maroonroar! 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 in the forums. If you need any help, don't hesitate to contact one of our mentors. Have fun! Chez talkemail 23:54, 8 April 2013 (GMT)

Yummy! Thanks so much! --Maroonroar (talk) 22:38, 17 April 2013 (GMT)
Over a month later and you have really kept it up. You've been making some great edits around the wiki, and you deserve not only this cookie but another! But rather than add another, I'll just say thanks! You're doing an awesome job around here. :) — ABCface 04:29, 31 May 2013 (GMT)

Morrowind InventoriesEdit

Hey! When you add the morrowind inventories, could you put your name next to the inventory parameter in the template! That helps us keep track of which have been written and which haven't. Thanks!! Jeancey (talk) 21:50, 26 April 2013 (GMT)

Done! Thanks for the heads up!--Maroonroar (talk) 22:00, 26 April 2013 (GMT)

SignEdit

Hey there! Remember to sign your requests on the Image Requests page - you can see how it is done just above your own entry. :) --Krusty (talk) 23:28, 23 May 2013 (GMT)

Whoops, forgot it that time, thanks for the heads up.:)--Maroonroar (talk) 23:33, 23 May 2013 (GMT)

No spells for Morrowind NPCsEdit

Hey! Technically every NPC in Morrowind has some spells, as their racial abilities are listed as spells. To that end, I have come up with standard sentences for every race that will detail their racial abilities. You can find the list in my sandbox, here. If there are no other spells, simply add something along the lines of " they know no spells." after the sentence. They way they are structured should allow that to make grammatical sense :P Jeancey (talk) 19:54, 25 May 2013 (GMT)

Understood, thanks for the heads up. :)--Maroonroar (talk) 20:12, 25 May 2013 (GMT)
Yep! One thing, you added that a priest had no spells. Would you mind double checking that one? Most priests do have spells, so it could be significant if this particular priest doesn't :) Jeancey (talk) 20:14, 25 May 2013 (GMT)
It looks like Gilvas Barelo (I assume he's the one your talking about) is somewhat unique, looking the game data he has no spells.--Maroonroar (talk) 20:31, 25 May 2013 (GMT)
Very strange (yep that's who I was talking about). I wonder if there are others.... Jeancey (talk) 20:32, 25 May 2013 (GMT)
Oh and one last little bit :P All the leveled lists in Morrowind have redirects to the lists on the site, so you can actually just link to the lists themselves, for instance a leveled magical axe. :) All the leveled items should be there, so they should be linked in the article (which means you also don't have to specify what quality they go up to). Jeancey (talk) 02:57, 27 May 2013 (GMT)

Deor and YrsaEdit

Hey there! I just checked the recently removed Deor/Yrsa conversation on my dialogue sheet and it seems like there's a bug somewhere - apparently, it is a conversation between a MaleNord and a MaleEvenTonedAccented - which means that the conversation for Yrsa may have been recorded for Wulf by mistake. Not sure where to put it, but it needs a bit more testing from some CK expert. Nice catch though! :) --Krusty (talk) 21:49, 11 June 2013 (GMT)

Hmm, maybe we could put it in the bugs section for Deor and Yrsa, since I don't think the conversation can happen in game. Something similar to this, maybe?
Yeah it's something along the lines of Addvar, although this is a full dialogue between husband and wife, recorded with male voices only. Not sure what happened, but you can definitely add it to one of the pages, then contact a CK expert and ask for an explanation. --Krusty (talk) 22:53, 11 June 2013 (GMT)
The quest alias is Yrsa, but the NPC who fills the alias is Wulf, so it is a conversation between Wulf and Deor. It will occur so long as they are under 3500 units away from a certain marker. Vely►t►e 19:40, 12 June 2013 (GMT)
Alright, thanks for the clarification Vely!--Maroonroar (talk) 20:02, 12 June 2013 (GMT)

The Resdayn RecordEdit

The first edition of the Resdayn Record is out now! The Resdayn Record is the Morrowind Overhaul Project's quarterly newsletter! You can read the newsletter here. If you wish to opt-out of this newsletter, please post a message on my talk page. Thanks for participating in MWOP this quarter!!! Jeancey (talk) 18:47, 13 July 2013 (GMT)

User Page?Edit

After over 500 edits, have you considered making a user page? We see your name so much, that it would be really nice if you would eliminate that constant red link. I know it kind of fits with your name, but I think a lot of people would appreciate it. Please consider doing so. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 17:51, 25 July 2013 (GMT)

Sorry, I guess I never got around to it. I've added some user boxes and a ribbon for now, but now I don't have the most edits for someone without a user page :P. --Maroonroar (talk) 18:13, 25 July 2013 (GMT)
You may no longer hold the title, but you still went the farthest I believe. That's something to take some pride in at least. Thank you! --AKB Talk Cont Mail 18:15, 25 July 2013 (GMT)

Quests above PeopleEdit

The current accepted style is to have the people above the quests, so please stop changing pages to the other way. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 14:34, 22 September 2013 (GMT)

Oops, didn't see that, sorry for the trouble. --Maroonroar (talk) 14:41, 22 September 2013 (GMT)

Verb tense of Morrowind people pagesEdit

Hi Maroonroar. I noticed that you have been changing the wording of Morrowind NPC inventories that use the "simple perfect" tense ("He wears") to the "present continuous" tense ("He is wearing"). This is not in accordance with standard practice that I have seen throughout the wiki, so I was wondering if some decision had been made somewhere to change these. --Xyzzy Talk 05:23, 6 October 2013 (GMT)

Hi Xyzzy. I just thought that was the correct tense to use because I've seen them changed by Jeancey from "simple perfect" to "present continuous". But if you want me to use "simple perfect" instead, then I will. --Maroonroar (talk) 15:04, 6 October 2013 (GMT)
I don't know why Jeancey changed those, but we should try to be consistent across the wiki. I personally prefer to leave them in the simple perfect tense, especially since that is the current common practice. Either one is grammatically correct though, so if consensus were to be reached about changing them all or allowing variation between articles, that would be ok. --Xyzzy Talk 19:25, 6 October 2013 (GMT)

Image RequestsEdit

Hi Maroonroar! I was wondering if you still want/need the images of Balgruuf that you requested way back in June? I can try to get them (though I know there's one of the surrender already on the page, just maybe not from a good angle), but if they're no longer necessary it would be nice to know. Thanks! likelolwhat talk lulzy to me 06:46, 22 February 2014 (GMT)

Hi Likelolwhat! Sorry for the super late reply, I've kinda been busy... As for the images, I'm satisfied with the current state of the article so I'll remove those requests. Thanks for asking! --Maroonroar (talk) 01:57, 1 April 2014 (GMT)

Happy Birthday!Edit

I hope you have a nice day! A bit rotten luck that the devs decided to use your birthday for the launch of a new game, but at least that makes it easier for us to remember it! --AKB Talk Cont Mail 22:04, 4 April 2014 (GMT)

Haha thanks AKB!--Maroonroar (talk) 15:53, 5 April 2014 (GMT)
