:Hehe, ya that skin wasn't designed by me, I just uploaded it testing the different skins. Dusk really isn't made for a wiki our size and is meant for more of a blog style with small amounts of text. I really need to get a decent skinned created because this default one we are using is just too bland, I'd really love to see something that fully integrates with the Tolkien theme. Unfortunately my CSS/PHP/creativity skills are lacking so it's easier said than done. Unfortunately the skin is made to fit a fixed size thus expanding it would ruin the whole header image there, yet another aspect of that skin I dislike. The wiki skins definitely needs to be something that expands with the browser and resolution to provide maximum viewing for those larger monitors. But it is a good example of how powerful CSS/PHP can be with the wiki software and we can really twist this site into anything we want. --[[User:Hyarion|Hyarion]] 11:26, 8 February 2006 (EST)

Is it possible to get a more encyclopedia-like listing under the heading 'the encyclopedia'? I mean, like what they print on the spine of the seperate volumes: Aa-Bl, Bk-Ce etc. In this case it would be: A El - Eld, Eld - Kin etc; this should be done automatically, of course, if possible. It's now such a long, bare list.

Hello, dear like-mindeds! I'm happy to be the member of "Tolkien Gateway". I have just joined in it. And I want to ask you: "Did you talk about this fact that in the film "The Lord of the Rings" many interesting events are reduced?". Frankly speaking, I want to see, for example, Tom Bombadil or Glorfindel in this film... Do you follow me? What is your opinion about it? Please, leave your comment! I'll be glad. {{unsigned|Victoria Angmarskaya}}

Reductions of events in the film.

Hello, dear like-mindeds! I'm happy to be the member of "Tolkien Gateway". I have just joined in it. And I want to ask you: "Did you talk about this fact that in the film "The Lord of the Rings" many interesting events are reduced?". Frankly speaking, I want to see, for example, Tom Bombadil or Glorfindel in this film... Do you follow me? What is your opinion about it? Please, leave your comment! I'll be glad.
