Help talk:Contents

I think it would be clearer to call this article Editing Help or something and add (at least) a list of templates that can be used in articles. I know that you (Hyarion) have created lots of Templates, but I don't know how to find them, as they are lost somewhere in the depths of the Recent Changes. Or else create a SpecialPages:Templates article with a short Templates for Dummies and the listing of them? --Earendilyon 06:28, 23 April 2006 (EDT)

I agree, the Help page really needs a lot of work. Hopefully in the future it will be a portal for editing help, template help, etc. The Templates are halfway categorized, I'll work on fixing that right now. There will be a Templates category with sub-categories for the types of templates. Also if you want to see a list of all the templates check this out --Hyarion 12:23, 23 April 2006 (EDT)

Tense

Hello! I'm new here, and was just wondering, what's the general procedure regarding verb tense? Usually while reporting/talking about/discussing most novels, the literary present tense is used, but I wasn't too sure for LOTR related topics, since the stories are suppose to be a historical account, (am I correct about this fact?) So, should we/I use the lit. present or the past tense? Also, is there a page regarding general wiki grammar rules that I should have first looked at to answer this question? kai lyn 13:31, 7 February 2007 (EST)
