ESO Fansite List/Directory - Guides, Addons, Articles, Etc.

During my over-a-year of ESO I've found myself bouncing between quite a few sites for information on various aspects of the game. Today I realized just how long my list of bookmarks has become (I've been sitting on an encyclopedia), so I've decided to post my list here in case anyone finds it useful. Perhaps it could help many players, both new and old, know where to get reliable information on everything from quests, to builds, to theorycrafting, to lore. (No guild sites here, these are all general ESO stuff.)

NOTE: I did search the forum for "site list" and "directory" and nothing came up, but if there is such a thread please point me to it. Also, I waffled between General Discussion (usually people's first stop), Community Creations (being a list of fanmade sites), and Player Guides (being, technically, a GUIDE to fanmade sites...) as the proper destination for this post. Of course, moderators, please move it wherever, but I hope you see the source of my indecision lol.

I hope you find this list useful, and if you have a site of your own, please comment so I can add it! For now, these are alphabetical, but I'll likely edit them into categories if I can figure out how to handle the ones that fit multiple categories.
