Tamriel Foundry opened it's doors on August 11, 2012 as a hub for community discussion of mechanics, theory-crafting, and gameplay. Our primary goal is to provide players with a valuable reference for better understanding of mechanics, strategies, and tactics. We further aim to seamlessly integrate in-game features like guilds and character profiles with our community to enable discussion at a high level while promoting the formation of friendships, rivalries, and a deep sense of community identity.
Tamriel Foundry was created to accomplish several fundamental objectives which are described in the following sections.
Promote Understanding of Game Mechanics and Content
A primary goal for Tamriel Foundry is to promote constructive and intelligent discussion of The Elder Scrolls Online game development and mechanics. We seek to provide players with a valuable resource to improve understanding of game systems and content, knowledge which can in turn improve their own gameplay experience. We strive to be unbiased in our interpretation of information; we want ESO to be successful, but we are not a source of mindless hype.
Strengthen the Elder Scrolls Online Game Community
We believe that strength of community is essential for MMOs and we aim to contribute positively towards that objective by establishing a hub for the formation and strengthening of community bonds. We encourage community members to establish social connections by providing tools for players and guilds to build upon the Tamriel Foundry platform.
Support Community Content Creators
Lastly, a central objective for Tamriel Foundry is to support community content creators by providing a platform where they can publish content to be featured and shared with the Ashes fan community. We maintain no distinction between official site authors and community posters, anyone who registers a Foundry user account can have their posted content featured directly on the site home page.
Content published to Ashen Foundry is ranked based on Content Quality, Freshness, and Community Engagement. Newly published content which features a high quality in its design and successfully engages other members of the Tamriel Foundry community in discussion will automatically be promoted to be featured prominently on the site home page and in social media announcements.
We hope this system will provide content creators with a great experience publishing their work, whether it be YouTube videos, podcasts, guides, or editorial opinion pieces.
