Welcome to Tolkien Gateway's Community Portal
a one-stop shop for editors old and new
John Howe - An Unexpected Party.jpg
Tolkien Gateway is an encyclopedia about Tolkien that anyone can edit. Since our launch on 3 June 2005, we have grown to include 11,948 articles and 12,324 images on a range of Tolkien-related topics.

This Community Portal is designed to help editors find something to work on. It covers a range of ways you can share your Tolkien knowledge with the world including creating wanted pages, expanding stub articles, cleaning up poorly-written pages and added references to articles in need of citations. Some of the work might be a little tedious, but a little goes a long way in continuing to build the world's largest Tolkien encyclopedia.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. You can ask a specific staff member on their talk page - they're happy to help you out.

Pages needing improvement
These articles have been identified as needing urgent attention in order to meet our standards. You can help Tolkien Gateway by tidying up these articles and rewriting them:
Unsatisfactory articles
Articles needing expansion and Stub articles
Articles to be rewritten
Pages needing references
These require incline citations in order to make them more encyclopedic. You can help Tolkien Gateway by adding references to these articles:
Articles with no sources
Articles needing additional citations
Uploading images
When uploading an image be sure to use the appropriate copyright template by selecting it from the "Licensing" drop-down box. All you need do is provide a summary of the image and the category.

Remember: do not upload images to Tolkien Gateway without prior permission of the copyright-holder unless you believe it falls under fair-use.
