Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online Forum!

As you may have already noticed, this forum is dedicated to The Elder Scrolls Online. Because we're still quite a long way from having a release - or even an announcement of a release - I hope to start gathering as much information as possible about this upcoming MMO. I'm a pretty dedicated guy, but I cannot do this without the help of TESO fans!

In case you don't know the features we have here, I'll list a few of them in hopes that I can get you to sign up, completely free, and hop into the forum and start creating and joining in on some TESO discussions.

Here at TESOF, we have:
  • A completely unique and custom theme, created by... well, myself. As you can see at the footer of each page, we are using a forum software called MyBB - which is a great system by default, and even better with the changes that I have made to it.
  • A custom and streamlined Profile Settings page. I know I personally cannot stand when joining a forum and having to wade through the many options available. Many of which are redundant, if you ask me. Here we just have one page to manage all of your personal and public information.
  • Character Profile (coming soon). This option, in my opinion, will be quite a neat feature. Since this feature is not yet available, I don't want to state anything that may not happen - so instead, I've decided that the features of the Character Profile will be up to you. I take every suggestion into very serious consideration, and I'd love to hear what you would want to see in a character profile feature.
  • Profile Cards. Basically, instead of having a bunch of information in your profile page, I have turned it into a card-esque look. It displays personal information (if you so choose to display them), as well as a link to your website, if you own one. On this page, your character profile is also shown below your profile card.
  • An avatar gallery featuring many different images of several different Elder Scrolls titles. This gallery will be constantly updated. Choose your favorite to express your love for the Elder Scrolls series!
  • And as I stated above, all suggestions are taken seriously - if it's in my power to add your suggestion to the forum and it's something that could benefit us - consider it done!

Other than that short list, I am constantly trying to improve our site. I'd love to hear some of your suggestions and feedback.

Best regards,
Tecca.

my question: will it be possible to upload our own avatars at some point?

I may enable uploading here, but the reason why it's a gallery is because I wanted to keep a consistent TES theme throughout the site. But if more people request it, I don't mind adding it back in.

You could put avatar uploads into moderation queue to make sure they fit the overall theme. Or start a little contest and get forum members to create sets. There's definitely a need for more avatars to chose from.

Mh, guess I could make some from Arena, to get things started.

Great contest idea - I'll keep that in mind for when more members join up. I'd like to give out a nice prize to the winner as well.

And some Arena avatars would be appreciated. The only requirement is that they should be 100x100 pixels.

Some more portraits would be nice, I can always waste some time on Photoshop and make a batch of TES themed ones for you as well.

You shouldn't need the option to upload your own as long as people have a healthy selection to choose from, I think the reason most people like the choice to upload (myself included) is simply that having a unique avatar is a quick way to have some individuality to yourself that people can see and be like "Oh hey X posted I should read that one"

I agree about the individuality that avatars can bring out. Another way to express it will be with signatures, and in the future, the TESO Character Profiles. Once more information comes out about the game, I need to get working on the character profiles so that members can have their own unique profiles underneath their profile cards.

Any help on the avatar front is always welcome - I'd like to have as many as possible for members to choose from.

Fantastic Tecca, I will probably stop using the official forums and just stick here.
