Community Portal

Skyrim Wiki is a community project run entirely by volunteers to provide information for the game.

Our community of editors is open to anyone. If you would like to join in:

  • Register
    • While you can edit anonymously, a free account makes it easier to keep track of your own edits.
  • Be bold
    • There's no need to wait. Jump right in and start editing. The wiki maintenance category may be a great place to start, or you can start small by fixing spelling, grammar, and other errors you come across.
  • Start a new article

Alternatively, just type a new article name in the search box. A link will be provided to start the article at the top of the search results.

Current wiki news[edit source]

Everyone, I would like to point out that since I am now an administrator, I'm going to rollback any entries that don't show a reasonable effort at proper grammar, punctuation and spelling. I don't mind editing a contribution that makes sufficient effort, but if something is a mess it's just going to get vaporized. This is particularly painful when someone adds to an existing article that does demonstrate correct form.

I won't clean up sloppy articles, and no other administrator will, either. While this is a volunteer effort, like all wikis, no one wants to waste time on something that is, frankly, painfully sloppy.

One more thing: this wiki isn't the place for gaming tips nor walkthroughs. Those will also get zapped. It's a place for straightforward information, such as definitions and (fictional) histories and bios. Imagine you're writing an entry for Encyclopaedia Britannica or Americana. The only exception seems to be the discussions and questions on Community portal talkpage.

Wanted pages[edit source]

The Skyrim wiki is never finished, and new pages are added all the time. In case you'd like a certain page to be made and require help with this, please add onto this list.

Instead of Lore on the front page, Have clans. It would include The Brotherhood, Companions, and so on.

I think the layout of the link to the civil war quests should be modified. It's slightly messy and can be confusing for some people who are looking to follow this guide through the entire questline. I'll be doing some major editing to a couple of the pages since I'm re-doing the quest on stormcloack side.

I think the site needs a page on High Rock as it id the only Province without a page.

(From jhfurnish:) I agree, High Rock is especially relevant since it is the origin place of the Reachmen (also the Forsworn), besides being the homeland of the Bretons. I've just added a tonne of detail to High Rock if you want to give it a glance, and any feedback is appreciated. Farsight2522 21:22, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

I agree with the clans option but make a portal for it, rather than on the main page ?

I would say 'sure'. Not much room on the main page; perhaps it's time to revamp the main page, hint/wink/nudge to Game widow. A number of things might even come under clans, for that matter. jhfurnish 06:44, 22 Frebruary 2013
I'm always open to improvement for the wiki. This page can be used to try out any desired changes to the main page — Game widow (talk) 16:32, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
