UESPWiki talk:Task List

Archive 1: Ap 2007 - Feb 2011

Feel free to ask any questions you have about tasks at UESP! If you have an idea, and want feedback, or if you'd like to know more about a task you see on the page,just ask. To ask a question, you can just click on the "+" tab at the top of the page. Type in your question in the big edit box that appears, put a title in the box that says "Subject/headline", and click "Save Page". For more details, see Editing Pages and Editing a Discussion Page. Another editor will notice the question and answer... probably not immediately, but almost always within the next day.

Night Mother`s CryptEdit

I dont think there is an own page on the Night Mother`s crypt, should we make one?--Archain 20:27, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Yep, that would be a good idea. We could move some of the text from the quest page onto it. rpeh •TCE 07:27, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
OK, ill add it to the task list.--Archain 13:45, 4 March 2011 (UTC)


There is no page that shows a list of all cults in tamriel, is there? If not, maybe we should have one.--Archain 18:20, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

See This.--Corevette789 18:41, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
Ok thanks, i didn`t see that one. --Archain 18:48, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
More generally, the Lore pages such as this are the place to look. There may be things missing, so feel free to add. rpeh •TCE 18:52, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Stick with me for a second, idea.Edit

Is there any way to make the "random page" button only pick pages from certain categories? Like if you only wanted it to search oblivion pages, is there a way to make it do that? I dont think that is currently available, and I feel it is a good idea. Is there support for it? It seems like it would either be little work or a lot of it, and only Administrators could do it, but Ill leave the idea here for thoughts. Thanks!--Catmaniac66 22:59, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

I've often wanted the same thing, but it's not possible without re-writing a chunk of the underlying MediaWiki software. It's very, very unlikely to happen, I'm afraid. rpeh •TCE 08:06, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Lore article.Edit

Do you think we should create a lore page for Orvas Dren ? JackTurbo95 08:09, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

I've created a section for him here as I don't feel that while he's important enough to be mentioned, he is not important enough to have his own Lore page.--Kalis AgeaYes? Contrib E-mail 04:03, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Merchants ChestEdit

a page on merchants chests — Unsigned comment by Candc4 (talkcontribs) on 15 May 2011

I don't think we need a page on a series of chests placed where you can't get at them with locks that you can't open. Anybody who uses the console has probably already knows about them, and anybody who doesn't can't access them. rpeh •TCE 11:43, 12 May 2011 (UTC)


I'm still on break - I was just checking my watchlist quickly to make sure that nothing big enough to bring me out of it had happened - but I noticed this and wanted to confirm that I'm fine with AKB's recent revert of my edit. If it still needs doing when I'm not on break anymore, I'll do it then.--Ghurhak gro-Demril or TAOYes? 20:35, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Tamriel RebuiltEdit

Does anyone else think that something should be put on the task list about adding things to the Tamriel Rebuilt section? Because while most articles that would be needed for TR have been made, few actually have any real info. Halfstache 03:45, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Well, most users right now are focusing on either the OBNPCRP or OPRP, but I know that both rpeh and myself would be able to help (he maintains the TES4Mod namespace more than anyone else, but I was considering working on the namespace myself soon). And I'm sure there are many others out there willing to help out with thinking up and completing tasks for the TES4Mod namespace. In case he doesn't see this here, I'll go ahead and post a quick notice on rpeh's talk page so as to alert him to this post. In the meantime, did you (or anyone else) have any specific pages that you can think of on the top of your head(s)?--Kalis AgeaYes? Contrib E-mail 03:55, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
By all means create a Tamriel Rebuilt or Stirk section. I'm not sure I'd agree that "few actually have any real info" though. Almost everything from map 1 is done, the major exceptions being the city pages. Map 2 NPCs have largely been left as stubs for the simple reason that none of the map 2 quests have been implemented yet so there's not a huge amount of stuff to write. rpeh •TCE 08:05, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

shivering isles quest revampEdit

Hey who ever leads this wonderful op to revamp the shivering isles quest pages can I help I'm very noligable when it comes to shivering isles knights of the nine oblivion skyrim and general lore so can I become part of the op — Unsigned comment by Whiteninja aka sarah (talkcontribs) at 02:48 on 25 June 2012

You just need to go to the page for the project you're interested in, and then put your name under the "Members" section of that page. ES(talkemail) 02:56, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

Skyrim project - peopleEdit

I believe that to coincide with the Skyrim Quest redesign project, we could benefit from a project focusing on fleshing out the character pages. I was inspired by the recent Featured Article on Legate Rikke and wanted to start a similar overhaul on some characters in my own way, for example Dengeir of Stuhn. However on further exploration I realised that several People articles, particularly denizens of the smaller holds, are missing a lot of information, or lacking the same narrative flow I have come to expect from your average Oblivion people page.

I am quite new here so I wouldn't want to be responsible for organising such a project (my knowledge of proper wiki formatting is still wobbly), but I would certainly want to be as much help as possible in producing the content. I CAN start attacking those pages that I happen to notice, but I think the work would benefit from the logic and consistency that comes from being part of a Project. Let me know what you think! Threepwood87 (talk) 12:30, 10 September 2012 (EDT)

Currently, there is no project because most of the pages are still stubs. We do already have a layout that they should all follow. Once we de-stub most of these, then a project might be more viable. Vely►t►e 15:42, 10 September 2012 (EDT)
Should I make a project that's purpose is to get rid of all Skyrim stubs? I was planning on making a Skyrim NPC redesign project, which if people want it I will still make it, but we do have far too many stubs. Ad Intellige Mecum loqui 00:05, 18 September 2012 (GMT)
There's not really a point in creating a project for the purpose of removing stubs, as projects are much more detailed than general tasks such as filling in basic content. I've added a line on the Task List project page about filling in Skyrim stubs; this should suffice. — ABCface 21:10, 18 September 2012 (GMT)


I just went through a lot of pages of locations where shadowmarks can be found. I went through the vast majority of them but probably missed a few. I expanded a little bit in the notes as requested about the reason those marks were put there. Feel free to go through them. --Jake-518 (talk) 12:10, 2 February 2013 (GMT)

Image creationEdit

I just removed a message on this page about a high priority need for image creation. Why is this need deemed so much more important than the other tasks? I feel that we don't should add tasks in such a way unless the majority of the community feels that it is really a dire need. I think image creation is not an exceptional task at the moment. --Alfwyn (talk) 19:39, 20 February 2013 (GMT)


Under the "Oblivion" section, there isn't a task for Oblivion NPC Redesign Project. Is there a reason for that? Grim765 (talk) 22:52, 13 March 2013 (GMT)

It can be added if you think it's necessary and needs some good attention right now. All official projects are on the projects page, though. Vely►t►e 23:34, 13 March 2013 (GMT)

Remove All Tasks?Edit

With this page falling into extreme neglect, and many of these tasks being so open-ended as to be virtually impossible to take on, I want to remove everything we currently have and start anew. Instead of treating this page as a dumping ground for projects and miscellaneous things that need doing, I believe that in the future, this page will only be used for very specific things that need doing. For example, we currently have "Fill in content to stubs" on this article. I think that should go. Instead, we would have a specific request for a particular stub, like: "I am working on Skyrim:Afflicted Refugee but need to know if the vile vapor ability they have is exactly identical to the one the Reaper uses. Can someone look into this?" Basically, the idea here is to turn this into a more open discussion page for specific things that can much more quickly be done.

As it is, no one is going to use this page is we don't do something. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 22:15, 23 March 2014 (GMT)

I didn't know this page existed until a few seconds ago. This wiki is pretty massive. Perhaps something is in order. ChildofKyne (talk) 02:19, 7 September 2014 (GMT)

Skyrim NPC SchedulesEdit

My announcing this may sound quite dumb, but I'm going to go ahead and add some
schedules to NPC pages. If there is anything wrong with this, please let
me know, and I will stop upon seeing your post.

USKP links are deadEdit

All the links for the USKP fix lists are toast. I'd fix them myself, but I don't know where they're supposed to lead. ParadoxPraxis (talk) 02:26, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

I updated it to the combined USSEP list. I'm not sure if the old, separate lists are still available, but even if they are, I believe the USSEP version history includes all the same information anyway. Thanks for letting us know! Robin Hood  (talk) 10:29, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
