Hello! You have changed description of artworks by [[Ivanneth (artist)|Ivanneth]] attributing them to me (I am [[Karolina Węgrzyn]]), but that's misunderstanding. All works by Ivanneth I have uploaded do belong to her. You can always verify it at her website: [http://www.geocities.com/ivanneth63/ Ivanneth's portfolio]. I am moving back the changes, Regards!

==English grammar==

I need help on adding an English gloss to the wordlist. Tolkien writes that the meaing of T ''can-'' is "to summons or name a person" (PM:362). To my non-native ears, the verb "to summons" sounds strange -- I would write "to summon ...a person". Do you have an explanation? --[[User:Morgan|Morgan]] 19:26, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
 +
 +
:Yes, it does sound odd. The only use of "summons" that I can think of is in relation to a court summons, but that wouldn't really explain it because that would still be a noun. Given that "to summons" appears twice in that footnote it seems intentional. There must be an explanation, but I can't think of one.--{{User:KingAragorn/sig}} 22:44, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Artworks by Ivanneth

Hello! You have changed description of artworks by Ivanneth attributing them to me (I am Karolina Węgrzyn), but that's misunderstanding. All works by Ivanneth I have uploaded do belong to her. You can always verify it at her website: Ivanneth's portfolio. I am moving back the changes, Regards! Sirielle 00:52, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Many thanks!-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  10:44, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Portal:Languages

Shouldn't the Portal:Languages be available from the main page?--Morgan 08:46, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

I would like that.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  09:30, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

English grammar

I need help on adding an English gloss to the wordlist. Tolkien writes that the meaing of T can- is "to summons or name a person" (PM:362). To my non-native ears, the verb "to summons" sounds strange -- I would write "to summon ...a person". Do you have an explanation? --Morgan 19:26, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

References template

Hello KA! I've noticed you write {{references}} with all lower-case letters; is there any technical reason why I shouldn't use {{References}}? --Morgan 21:18, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

It doesn't really matter. It's just a consistency thing.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  21:21, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
I prefer lowercase as well. For the same reason. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 22:45, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Spiders profile image

Could we maybe change the profile and race image for the spiders?? I mean no offence by the artist's work or anything, but Ted Nasmith's spiders are far too frightening for me. Could we please maybe change the images to one that is not quite as nightmare inducing as the current one? Unsigned comment by Jakegothicsnake (talk • contribs).

Sure, we could change it. Do you have an alternative image in mind?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  09:41, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Perhaps the Spider image by John Howe?

Morte Arthure

Thanks for the correction -- mea culpa! --Morgan 18:15, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Current Events

Passing thru-- what's going on these days here? Is the Green Old Party still in business?  Theoden1  talk  contribs  edits 

Things are pretty quiet here, but they're trudging along nicely. The GOP is still in business but is close to complete inactivity. How are you doing? -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  21:11, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
Doing pretty well. The wife and two step-daughters are doing just fine, the youngest is on her 5th year of a 5-year college program. I'm now in the life insurance biz, and doing well. I plan on becoming active here again, picking up where I left off on some of these battles.  Theoden1  talk  contribs  edits  00:32, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
