Welcome to the Skyrim Blog Lore College!  In keeping with the spirit of our founder, the illustrious, indomitable, and perspicacious Vix, we invite you to peruse our bookshelves (revised Table of Contents), proposed syllabus (Posting Schedule), and Suggestion Box, as no scholarly institute is complete without feedback from its enrolled sages.  Lore Master Vix and Lore Mistresses Kyrielle and Kynareth have many plans to increase the tomes in the library (lore articles) and provide symposiums for your scholarly edification (general discussion topics). 

If you have not already enrolled, please consider furthering your studies in Elder Scrolls Lore.  We are a friendly consortium that is interested in increasing our knowledge of Nirn and the realms beyond.

Tags have been updated in the Directory and all links in the Directory have been restored.  I will work on adding the recent influx of new articles to the directory this evening, and cleaning up any stray bits in the group.  Then we can move forward from there.  Thanks for everyone's patience through the content disruption.

Hey Ben, thanks for that update.  I am going through and updating tabs and making sure the directory in the lore group has articles linked correctly.  Housekeeping.  Yeah.

Kynareth, some of the links you have may not be working now if they were linked to a page Vix created.

interesting that Vix is gone he was the Great Lore Master at the start of the blog way back when we could only dream of the adventures we would have in TES Skyrim. I say now though that with ESO out and me and I'm sure many of you head deep in it there is more 'Lore" to be learned in books and quest. I say we pile on more lore by the truck load to further this great Collage of Knowledge.

Of course Vix had a mistress, her name was Skyrim...

Disgruntled girlfriend!? Hahaha! That would be some epic revenge! Maybe he had a mistress...

Comment by RuneRed on July 12, 2014 at 10:05am

I'm still opting for the disgruntled girlfriend hypothesis.  The old post is out of date, anyways - it may be best for the new hosts to create a new "Suggestion Box"

Rune, that is probably another minor aftershock of Vix's attack on the group. Yes I classify it as an attack!

The Suggestion Box is a Dead Link.

No, Phil, nary a word. Vix stopped visiting the site (or he didn't make his presence known) several months ago. He had told me a couple of years back that when he left the site, he would just quietly disappear, no goodbyes or fanfare. I had given him my email then in hopes that he might keep in touch when and if he decided to leave, but he hasn't contacted me since his 'disappearance'.

This recent 'deletion' of his account shocked me a bit. Not only was his account deleted but all of his material as well. Only an admin or Vix himself (or someone with access to his account) could've done that. It is highly unlikely (nearly 0%) that an admin would've done such a thing. It is difficult for me to accept the probability that Vix would've acted so maliciously, but it seems almost a certainty at this point.

Emer (the site's owner) may still be investigating the matter, maybe he'll glean some new information. But, in any case, fortunately, most of Vx's discussions were recovered, at least in part (comments weren't recovered).
