Sorry if I'm a bit late bringing this topic up. rpeh said that using a bot to fix the spellings could be problematic as there's no way to distinguish an in-game source. I'd be willing to take on the project myself, but a solution to the problem of clogging up the recent changes page needs to be made. Thoughts? Legoless 01:42, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Do it late at night? If I remember correctly bots are only supposed to be ran in the dead of night to avoid them clogging up the recent changes when people are actually editing, since this is a bot-like task I believe the same rules should apply. As this page says "The bot will not be run during periods with heavy server traffic (Defined as noon-9pm PDT weekends and 3pm-9pm PDT weekdays).". This option would avoid the worst clogging of recent changes in my opinion. Anyone else agree with me? --AKB Talk 02:06, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Thing is, I'm GMT. I'd probably have to do it early in the morning so as to disturb the least amount of people. Legoless 02:09, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
As long as you are making useful edits, clogging up the RC is no problem at all. Just go ahead whenever you feel like it - and thanks! --Krusty 07:06, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
I'm almost finished, but for the Daggerfall Daedric quest articles. They seems to consistently use the single 'p' spelling, even in dialogue quotes where the "worshiper's name" is supposed to be inserted. I haven't played Daggerfall extensively, so does anyone know if the worshippers are spelling like that in-game? If so I think I might leave those pages alone. Or, it might stem from the fact that all the articles seem to be written by the same group of people (the Daggerfall masters, I assume), who probably use the same spelling throughout. Does anyone know for sure? Legoless 00:29, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
I just searched through all the DF files and came up with these occurrences of the double p version:
  • "They say _qgfriend_ is a very pleasant and charming =qgfriend_, who is also a daedra-worshipper.ÿ_qgfriend_ is rumored to be Peryite's slave in %reg. Peryite is the Daedra of Pestilence and Plague."
  • "Sanguine is an enemy none should have. You won't regret this, %pcf, provided you fulfill your end of our agreement. This sanctimonius monk is not harmless; =monster_ is %g3 name and %g burned my lovely worshippers to crisps."
  • "The Dark Brotherhood is a very mysterious organization, often hired as assassins by the more pragmatic rulers. They have a reputation as maniacs and daedra worshippers, but they must be doing something right. They've been around for thousands of years."
  • "That's the temple devoted to Arkay, the God of Birth and Death.ÿThe Order of Arkay is a temple for worshippers of the God of the Cycle of Birth and Death. Any temple dedicated to Zenithar, the God of Work and Commerce, is called a Resolution of Zenithar or a Resolution of Zen."
  • "Even those people without children of age go to pray for the wisdom and benevolence of the clergy. Riglametha is celebrated on the twelfth of Hearth Fire every year in Lainlyn as a celebration of Lainlyns many blessings. Pageants are held on such themes as the Ghraewaj, when the daedra worshippers in Lainlyn were changed to harpies for their blasphemy."
  • "On the 8th of Suns Dusk, the Bretons of Glenumbra Moors hold the Moon Festival, a joyous holiday in honor of Secunda, goddess of the moon. Although the goddess has no active worshippers, the traditional celebration has continued through the ages as a time of feasting and merriment."
  • "Worshippers know better than to expect this philanthropy, but they arrive in a macabre procession with the recently deceased nevertheless. when ale flows free in all the taverns in all the cities of Tamriel.ÿthe biggest party of the year!ÿa huge drunken orgy ...."
  • There are also "pp"s in Ghraewaj, The Brothers of Darkness, An Overview of Gods And Worship, Ius, Animal God, Invocation of Azura, and King Edward, Part XII (×11).
I think you're safe changing anything else. rpeh •TCE 10:36, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

() I think I'm finished. I haven't changed any of the unofficial mod articles, and I've added sic tags to any in-game source using the single 'P' spelling that I've come across. One thing that's puzzling me is the Overview of Gods and Worship book. It seems to use both spellings, so I don't know if that's an error from Bethesda or from an editor. Legoless 11:47, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Great work! I just checked that book and both spellings are definitely used. Typical - we worry about consistency and Beth can't be consistent even in the same book! rpeh •TCE 12:41, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
Yeah. Good job. I searched the CS for the one-p spellings and put in a couple sic tags last night. The Overview of Gods and Worship one is a funny one, having both spellings. I figure it is either a misspelling by the game writers, or a roleplay indicator that spelling was not important at the time the book was written. --Brf 15:21, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
