Welcome to KingAragorn/2012's talk page.



Hi KA! If understand it correctly, the sorting of the artists by their last name disappeared when the category "Images by Artist" was changed to "Images by artist". Should they still be listed under their last name? --Morgan 17:41, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Ah yes, I remember breaking that now (if it's any consolation, it was because the bot did it). They should still be listed alphabetically. I'll get round to fixing it at some point. -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  18:44, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
I got round to it. -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  21:10, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Any idea on which copyright template to use on images of publications where the publisher no longer exists? For example, Show Volume 1 Number 1.png.--Morgan 20:01, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Yes, it's difficult to tell what happens to copyrights when businesses go bankrupt. However, just to be sure, I would use the fairuse template and attribute "H & R Publications" as the copyright holder. -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  21:10, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Lego Fair-use

Hi KA, would it be possible if you could create a fair-use template for the Lego Group. As we already have many Lego images, and probally will have more in the future. Their site is: Thanks! --Amroth 20:19, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Certainly. I've made the template, but we'll have to ask one of those nice admins to add it to the licensing list.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  22:02, 19 February 2012 (UTC)


Thanks for the help!--Morgan 17:52, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

No problem!-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  18:35, 20 March 2012 (UTC)


I'll leave this with you to sort out, but Talk:Námo (Mandos) didn't move because Talk:Mandos already existed. I don't know if you want to keep one/both/neither. Up to you. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 15:28, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

They can probably just stay as they are.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  16:13, 30 March 2012 (UTC)


Why thank you for the welcome, King Aragorn, or shall I call you Strider? Unsigned comment by OlorinTheWhite (talk • contribs).

You can call me Strider if you want! -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  22:05, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Fair-use Cover

We need to do something about this: Template:Fairuse-cover[former link]. It's used a lot and does seem moderately useful. Do we need, e.g. "Fairuse-HarperCollins", "Fairuse-HoughtonMifflin" etc etc? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 10:04, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes. Whenever I attempt to sort it out, I quickly give up because of all the work involved. From the start of June I will be able to help you with all of this work.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  10:27, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
Come in chat or FB! --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 10:38, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

Deleting things

I only delete things that have no other articles linking to them.
Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 20:40, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

My policy has not changed. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 22:48, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Will I ever learn?!-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  08:50, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
Apparently not! --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 11:12, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

I am not going to delete any more of the 66 candidates for speedy deletion unless you can assure me that there is no more of these. You consistently do this and it is beginning to annoy a bit. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 21:43, 14 June 2012 (UTC)


Hi! Can you please add Z to Portal:Languages? The code on the page was too complicated for me... --Morgan 22:08, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Done!-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  10:10, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Locations category

I'm trying to name a category for such Sites of Civilations referring to courtyards, markets, squares, etc. How about "Spaces", or is too vague? Articles include Court of the Fountain (Minas Tirith) and Square of the Palace. Or can we use an existing category?--Morgan 21:27, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

How about "Squares"?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  22:05, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
Sounds good.--Morgan 22:47, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Change cat

Don't forget to change to Category:Gatekeepers with over 10000 edits! ;) --Morgan 21:06, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Many thanks!-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  12:22, 19 June 2012 (UTC)


What's the difference? Do we need to change this?--Morgan 20:34, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

It's the old way of doing it. Of course, both will work. But you'll usually find that articles that use "Image:" are very old and haven't been updated in a long time. It just bugs me! -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  20:53, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
It bugs me that you change {{references}} to {{References}}, for example, it's not necessary and we should be consistent! File: is preferable (because we have sound clips that are files and certainly not images), but I don't think it's worth editing a page to specifically change. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 12:08, 30 June 2012 (UTC)


I tagged Radagast's Decipher Card appearance with a {fact} because I've been meaning to check out the source. It was an article on Weta's site ([1]). It's dead, but it's still accessible with Wayback Machine - [2]. How would we source that? --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 16:22, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

I wasn't sure myself, but Mith suggests that we should just reference the archive.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  16:30, 30 June 2012 (UTC)
Yep, nothing strange about that -- give the Wayback Machine page as the reference.--Morgan 19:01, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Tom and Goldberry

Which Infobox? We don't know what they are, do we? --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 17:58, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Exactly. They're legitimate characters and it's a shame that they don't have an infobox just because we don't know what they are. How about an infobox for "enigmas"?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  18:01, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
I have no problem with that. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:43, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Copyright license

I talked to Mans Bjorkman and he said that we have his permission to use his heraldic devices provided that we mention:

  1. A link to the source (
  2. A disclaimer that they are based on Tolkien's own images and descriptions.

Sage 17:28, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Ah, will you proceed to add the copyright notice, templates etc? Sage 17:51, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for getting permission from Mans Bjorkman. As they're not all by Bjorkman in the Flags and Devices category, I can't bot it. Could you add the the info to each page? Just put the source URL as the website (i.e. [ Source]), and put the disclaimer under ==Summary==.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  17:57, 15 July 2012 (UTC)


Thanks for fixing my goof up on the Third Age:2644 page. I meant to add Third Age:2665 which was a broken link on most of the Náin genealogy pages (including the Thorin page), but edited the existing 2644 instead. When I went back to the Thorin page later, I couldn't understand at first why the link was still red. --NoBT 22:44, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Signed by Shippey

I'm jealous! I should have gone... :-( --Morgan 21:01, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

We did try to convince you once or twice! ;) I'm debating whether or not to leave those copies untouched - I want to read them! -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  21:15, 20 August 2012 (UTC)


I undid your last edit to Writings by J.R.R. Tolkien: if you check an early version of the article, the entries often contained publisher, page numbers for essays, etc. But since the list is now so large, I've removed all that information, which is available in the individual articles.--Morgan 19:07, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
