Category talk:Drúedain

I think this section is in need of a tidy-up. Similar to the Edain pages, there are a lot of different pages for individual terms and translations which de-centralise the information available. I would like to hear which pages in this category people beleive should remain independant as 'Sindarin/Rohirric/Quenya etc. words', the rest will be merged and covered in an entymology section of the Druedain article (or would 'Woses' be a more appropriote main article?)

I think every article should be categorized, so maybe when it comes to titles for the Drúedain, we should have a specific category for "Drúedain titles" or something similar, and this would be a sub-category of Category:Drúedain. That way the information is still accessible, but doesn't clog up the category.

[edit] Changes made and changes to be made

Right, having added a large entymology section detailing all common (those with independant articles in this section) terms for the Druedain (excuse the lack of accents in this write up but i've had quite enough of those just now ;)) i now intend to redirect the majority of those pages to the main Druedain article. There are a couple of exceptions though, the Quenya and Rohirric singular and plurals will remain, though categorised into their respective languages. I have included links to those articles from the main Druedain article. Druedain will also be categorised under Sindarin words (really half the articles on this site should be too) so there shouldnt be any trouble there. Any objections should be voiced quickly (if i could be so bold as to request such) since i do want to 'crack on' as it were. Dr Death 05:54, 13 September 2007 (EDT)

I definitely agree that having descriptions of the same thing in different articles is not efficient and can be confusing. I've gone ahead and reverted some of the content of the articles however, so they contain only information relating to the titles themselves. I've also added a link at the top to make sure the visitor knows where the main article for this subject is located at. What do you think? --Hyarion 15:49, 13 September 2007 (EDT)


Definately preferable to what was there before the edit, but you well know how i think these matters should be managed :D. I'll relent for now though in the interests of unity and compromise. It does fulfil my objectives at any rate which is to make sure all articles are as 'pure' as they can possibly be. Dr Death 04:10, 14 September 2007 (EDT)
