[edit] Hello!

Hello Iorhael and welcome to TG! I noticed you merged Melkor (which indeed has been marked with the Template:Merge) with Morgoth. However, this is a quite "major" revision, and we would need a broad consent for such a merge. Please discuss such possibly controversial moves on the talk pages first. I would personally say that non-controversial merges are such when we have split an article between English names and Elvish (or other invented) names (there are editors who still want to keep Elvish names in separate articles). --Morgan 00:31, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

I see! I've undone a few such changes that I have made. Thanks! --Iorhael 00:38, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Fantastic, glad to have you aboard Iorhael! --Hyarion 00:39, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, Iorhael! Remember that you can always vote on and/or discuss the Melkor/Morgoth merge on Talk:Melkor#Merge with Morgoth. As you can see, there seems to be building a majority for merging. (I personally don't have a strong opinion in the matter, and would rather like to deal with merges from a general "decision", that is, a guideline for how to deal with all articles with multiple names, rather than vote in every single case.)--Morgan 00:55, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
Welcome Iorheal, I hope you will enjoy your time on Tolkien Gateway.
Also, when you merge two articles (like Melkor to Morgoth), the information of Melkor should be put in Morgoth not deleted. In the case of Morgoth the "names"/etymology-section should be rewriten.
Morgan, I agree with you that there should be a general decision about all articles, currently we're merging articles with eachother will (new) editors are still allowed to create new "language"-articles. --Amroth 14:23, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
Hello Iorhael, it's lovely to have you with us! I just wanted to "hi" and welcome you to the wiki; if you have any questions don't be afraid to leave me a message on my talk page, or else pop into chat and say "Hi!". --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 21:44, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
