WITN release year

Just a little note, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is published in 2011. --Amroth 13:59, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Secret Vice

Hi Ederchil! Why did you revert this? --Morgan 21:25, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Couple of reasons:
  • No markup.
  • No sources.
  • No composition.
  • Poor spelling.
  • POV. He begins "in a subtle fasion [sic]"? That's commentary.
Basically, that an article requires a rewrite does not mean we can accept anything. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 21:40, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Well, I still think it was a pretty good summary (although especially suffering from a POV as you say, - but the poor spelling is easily fixed and if the POV is removed no sources would be needed as it would be only a summary). I'll have a go at editing the anonymous user's text.--Morgan 12:48, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
It was more work than I expected ;-) --Morgan 14:26, 28 February 2012 (UTC)


I suspect you'll likely notice this anyhow, but I wanted to leave a note just in case.--Morgan

Sorry, full day of classes. Looks like Mith already has it. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 14:45, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

On Tolkien

As far as I know, it hasn't been published yet.--Morgan 16:03, 25 April 2012 (UTC)


IMHO, I don't think it's problematic to use Noel as a source in those cases where no other analyses of a name have appeared. Especially if we're clear about giving the reference and denoting the etymology as being a "suggestion". And if a new analysis appears, it's possible to see how olkien linguists have historically interpreted a certain word. I'd say it's a bit similar to "Portrayal in Adaptions": even if we don't think that this or that adaptation was authentic, we still include it for the sake of completeness. What do you think? --Morgan 14:44, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Normally I'd say true, but in this case, it's so obviously proven incorrect by later info that we'd best not mention it. I haven't checked the Etymologies, Elfling or PE yet for a more accurate etymology. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 14:51, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
