Welcome and thanks[edit]

Welcome to the wiki! Thanks for taking an interest in my project list; I've been worrying that it keeps growing and (apart from the NPC image-fest) never going down, so any help is more than welcome. Thanks also for adding your name to the OPRP page; I'm sure our resident Cloud Goddess is grateful for the rush of offered help over the last few days. I'm beginning to think we might actually get this thing finished...

Now OPRP has several people involved, I'm going to post something on the project page or [[UESPWiki:Oblivion_Places_Redesign_Project/Data|its data page]] soon to outline some ideas for keeping things sane. Check there every so often for updates. I was trying to write some pages for Inns when I got your message. I did The Count's Arms before realizing I sounded like an estate agent (Realtor on the other side of The Pond, I believe). I've got images for the Inns (although feel free to take your own if you wish - see this for tips on getting the best images from the game - but I'd love to see those red links replaced by any pages you may write. Lastly, the houses. Eventually, I think every single damn house in Cyrodiil (and Morrowind - but that comes much later!) should have its own page, but the initial focus is this page. I want to take pictures of the missing exteriors, then the interiors (before and after each upgrade {or am I going too far there?}) and, in these cases, create proper estate agent-like descriptions so people can see what they're getting for their money. That's quite a biggie too. Any help on any of these would be very greatly appreciated. --RpehTalk 15:40, 2 July 2007 (EDT)

You might already have noticed, but there's now a progress page [[UESPWiki:Oblivion_Places_Redesign_Project/Progress|here]]. Stake your claim if there are things you want to do! --RpehTalk 16:31, 2 July 2007 (EDT)
Staked out a few claims for walkthroughs of my favorite and best-known ruins. Forgive the lack of savvy, but what's an overlay? --Kementari 16:38, 2 July 2007 (EDT)
Make sure they're not already done - I grabbed shots of several ruins before checking out the page. Very annoying. Overlays? Nephele generates a file (check out [[UESPWiki:Oblivion_Places_Redesign_Project/Map_Overlay|this]] page) in EPS format that you can paste over your stitched-together map (there are more instructions on the page). It's the grab-and-stitch phase I find time consuming. Try doing a simple one to see what I mean. I promise, it'll test your enthusiasm to the limit! --RpehTalk 16:48, 2 July 2007 (EDT)
Oops, I think I might have erred in formatting. I'm assuming that names placed in boxes (see the [[UESPWiki:Oblivion_Places_Redesign_Project/Progress|Fanacas row]] for an example) mean that the user in question is working on it -- if I'm wrong, and one should only place one's name in there if one has completed the work, let me know. I don't wish to become a nuisance right off the bat. And with regard to overlays, I think I'll leave such image manipulation to those who know what they're doing. --Kementari 16:53, 2 July 2007 (EDT)
I've just clarified it. Name in box = claim, Struck-out Name in Box = done. I said we'd need to refine it! --RpehTalk 17:17, 2 July 2007 (EDT)

Welcome back![edit]

That's quite spooky... I was going to send you an email asking what had happened to you and here you are back on the site! Thanks for the comments on Thief of Darkness - I keep meaning to sit down and write the next part but Real Life and wiki work keep getting in the way. I hope you're coming back to us full time? –RpehTCE 04:23, 6 February 2008 (EST)

BTW - the latest additions to Shade Eyes are great. I must confess I had to look up "tenebrous"... :) –RpehTCE 05:53, 6 February 2008 (EST)
I'm not back full-time yet, sadly - Xandamere and I are getting married at the end of this month, and then it's two weeks in Europe before I can consider myself "back" to anything resembling normal! Don't let anyone ever tell you being a bridezilla is easy! Kementari 10:27, 6 February 2008 (EST)
Congratulations! If you need a list of good pubs in London, let me know. ;) –RpehTCE 10:41, 6 February 2008 (EST)

Thanks, and welcome back![edit]

Hey Kementari! It's good to have you back :). I just wanted to say hi and thank you for cleaning up that vandalism earlier. It's always nice to have extra help with the patrolling around here! Next time you clean up some nonsense, though, feel free to do a warning too. There's a link to that page at the top of Recent Changes, which is handy ;). Thanks again, and welcome back! –Eshetalk20:26, 25 March 2008 (EDT)

Thanks, Eshe! I actually couldn't find the warning message - still getting used to the structure around here again. :) Much appreciated! --Kementari 20:53, 25 March 2008 (EDT)

Fan Fiction[edit]

Sorry, but authors must remember that everything on this site is being viewed by others. Also, you should be aware that your Shade-Eyes story uses both American and British grammar. You should be more consistent by choosing only one of them. Also, your entry on my talk page seems to imply that you're speaking for everybody. Sorry for everything.

P.S. There's a red link on your user page. Also, don't look at my fan fiction work, its immense terribleness is known to make people go blind. Thanks and welcome back! --Michaeldsuarez (Talk)/(Contribs) 20:33, 25 March 2008 (EDT)
I'm quite fine with my work being viewed by others, actually. The mix of American grammar with Commonwealth spelling is a product of my education, as a matter of fact. I don't feel any need to enforce a consistency that detracts from a signature aspect of my style. Thanks for your opinions. --Kementari 20:51, 25 March 2008 (EDT)
You're welcome. So how were you educated? --Michaeldsuarez (Talk)/(Contribs) 20:57, 25 March 2008 (EDT)
At an International Baccalaureate academy; Diploma coursepath with high honours, followed by the University of California. --Kementari 21:02, 25 March 2008 (EDT)
Wow! I never heard of International Baccalaureate. Now I feel like I'm missing out. What was it like? --Michaeldsuarez (Talk)/(Contribs) 21:18, 25 March 2008 (EDT)

(outdent) The latest additions to Shade Eyes? Brilliant! More! More! –RpehTCE 12:16, 2 June 2008 (EDT)

Thank you. More on the way soon, I hope. The competition over at inspired me. :) -Kementari 00:54, 5 June 2008 (EDT)


Hey, we've been reformating the fanfiction pages and moving them from the General namespace to Userspace. I was wondering if you could update the links on your User page for us (We don't like to mess with user pages without permission). Specifically, the following link need to be changed:

General:Shade-Eyes -> User:Kementari/Shade-Eyes

Thanks.--Ratwar 14:32, 5 July 2008 (EDT)

It's been a month so I've relinked your fanfics to the versions in your user area. If you have any queries, please ask me. –RpehTCE 13:17, 9 August 2008 (EDT)

Fanfiction (Again)[edit]

Question: Can I use the evolving dagger in something I'm working on ? (Your stuff is great by the way)--TheAlbinoOrc 19:13, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

It's been several months so I'm going to assume that you don't really care.--TheAlbinoOrcany_questions? 18:14, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
