Just so you know, you don't need to tell people not to edit your User page. That's already general policy. We almost never mess with people's User pages unless it's just a simple courtesy fix (like fixing links for moved images, etc.), or if it's abusing the site rules in some way (mostly just spam). — TheRealLurlock (talk) 01:49, 21 March 2013 (GMT)

Ok, thanks for the tip. I'm not very good at this. --Sci Taar (talk) 19:36, 22 May 2013 (GMT)

Hello Sci Taar, your character's background sounds really interesting. I see you're a fan-fic author too. I look forward to reading about this "hyper" Khajiit (sounds like a Skooma addict to me) and seeing what you do with him. Also, would you happen to be the same user as Sci' Taar?

I'm only at chapter 2 for the public one, but about page forty in the rough draft. No, he's not a skooma addict, and actually doesn't know the first thing about Khajiiti culture. He's never been to Elsweyr, either. Also, the user Sci' Taar is just another profile I used to use. --Sci Taar (talk) 19:44, 22 May 2013 (GMT)

Some tips for your profile page[edit]

Hi Sci Taar, it looks like your profile page is coming along nicely. I just renamed the image that you uploaded, from File:NoElsweyr.JPG to File:User-Sci Taar-NoElsweyr.JPG, because there are naming conventions we follow on the wiki which help keep the files in order. To see the naming conventions and other tips for working with images, have a look at Help:Images, and in particular Naming Images. When I first arrived on the UESP, I made a similar mistake, and I missed the part in the Help that says "Images that are intended for use on your user page should follow the following format: User-<username>-<image name>.jpg."

Also, rather than using all those blank lines under your userboxes, you can simply use the {{NewLeft}} template to fix the problem that seems to be occurring with them. It's a common problem, and the template overcomes it automatically.

As for the UESPholic test results, you can use the existing {{UESPholic Test Results}} template if you like, rather than making a custom userbox for it. Just add your score in as a parameter, like this: {{UESPholic Test Results|3875}}. The template doesn't like commas separating the thousands though, unfortunately.

I hope you don't mind all these tips, and I hope you find them useful. We were all new to UESP wiki at some point, and all had to learn its quirks. Daric 20:34, 30 May 2013 (GMT)
