An Affiliate Deal Between the UESP and The Elder Stats

Hello. My name is Tom, and I have a question to ask about an affiliate deal between the UESP and The Elder Stats (http://www.elderstats.com). I've talked to Daveh about this, and he told me to ask about it on the Administrator Noticeboard since he isn't as active on the site as most of the other administrators are. So, here is my proposition to get The Elder Stats out there so that Oblivion fans all over can have a nice place to share their characters with the world.

I have released a website called The Elder Stats. We have nearly 200 members now, and it's going well. The Elder Stats is a website that allows Oblivion players to post statistics and photos of their characters in Oblivion, and then organizes all of this information into a neat and organized profile for each character. Then, the characters' profiles can be shared easily with players' friends and such. We also have leaderboards, stat comparison pages, and much more. It's a really great website, and everyone who has tried it has told me that they think it's wonderful and well-put together.

Now, since the UESP and The Elder Stats are not in any sort of competition (because the UESP contains information about Oblivion, whereas The Elder Stats allows players to post their Oblivion characters), I was wondering if we could do some sort of affiliate link-back (or maybe "a short front page news item" as Daveh suggested to me)? I know that the UESP is a big website and you may think, "who is this guy to be an affiliate of mine," but I promise you that The Elder Stats is a growing website, and being less than 3 months old, it still has a lot of room to expand.

Since people who are on the UESP might be interested in a website such as The Elder Stats, I thought that it might be nice if we could do some sort of link-back, new post, or whatever you wish to do. I figured that since I worked so hard on The Elder Stats and so many people like it, that it would be a great resource for Oblivion fans to have to post their characters, get help with their characters, and compare their characters to others.

Thanks for reading this comment, and hopefully we can come to some sort of agreement or something of the sort. The Elder Stats is a great website, as is the UESP, and I think that placing a link to The Elder Stats on the UESP would be beneficial to the Oblivion fans who are looking for such a website. — Unsigned comment by TomCat (talkcontribs) on 24 April 2009

Feel free to add a link here. Beyond that, I don't see that there's any need for further integration. –RpehTCE 15:41, 27 April 2009 (EDT)
