There are naming rules when it comes to images: the name of the author correctly spelled and capitalized, followed by a space, a hyphen ("-"), another space, and then, again with proper punctuation and spelling, the official title (but Howe's postcards don't have that). So those two images should be aptly named "John Howe - Boromir 03" (as there are already two other pictures of Boromir in [[:Category:Images by John Howe|Howe's gallery]]) and "John Howe - Barad-dûr". Also be sure to add them to the categories "[[:Category:Images by John Howe]]", "[[:Category:Images of Boromir]]" and "[[:Category:Images of Barad-dûr]]". Please note that TolkienGateway does not have a policy of favouring "big" artists like [[Alan Lee]] or [[John Howe]]; much more the opposite: small, independant artists deserve some screen-time too.

Dear Eldarion,

There are naming rules when it comes to images: the name of the author correctly spelled and capitalized, followed by a space, a hyphen ("-"), another space, and then, again with proper punctuation and spelling, the official title (but Howe's postcards don't have that). So those two images should be aptly named "John Howe - Boromir 03" (as there are already two other pictures of Boromir in Howe's gallery) and "John Howe - Barad-dûr". Also be sure to add them to the categories "Category:Images by John Howe", "Category:Images of Boromir" and "Category:Images of Barad-dûr". Please note that TolkienGateway does not have a policy of favouring "big" artists like Alan Lee or John Howe; much more the opposite: small, independant artists deserve some screen-time too. Enjoy your stay, -- Ederchil 12:30, 8 March 2008 (EST)
