[edit] Editing Tolkien Gateway

Hi LordAndSaviourSauron,

It's great that you have such a passion to edit Tolkien Gateway, and contribute to making our wiki even better. But there are a few points I want to raise with you:

  • Capital letters - in English, proper nouns have capital letters. In your Warg Matriarch article, there were a number of instances where capital letters were missing, such as "Gundabad", "The Hobbit" and "Thorin.
  • References - when referencing websites we have a template to help you to do that. But, more broadly, we want to see references against claims in articles so that we are able to justify them. This includes the etymology of the character names and specifics within the film trilogies.
  • Speculation - we do not include personal speculation within our articles. Academic, scholarly, or fan speculation can be included so long as it is from a reputable source and specifically states who has suggested it. E.g. "It has been suggested by Tom Shippey that..."

Just keep those in mind for the future. Thank you! --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 13:34, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Further to the above, please see this edit on the capitalisation of "Middle-earth". --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 16:14, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
Hi LordAndSaviorSauron,
Can I re-emphasise the points above and an extra one:
  • Images - please follow the naming conventions of images. In particular, with images from adaptations it should be "File:Name of Adapatation - Name of character/location".
It is really important you follow this and the points I raised above. Thanks. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 07:57, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
Ok thanx--LordAndSaviourSauron 09:53, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
Also further to the above, in order to maintain consistency, make sure put the actual name of the movie (or film series, if said item appears in more than one movie) in your image captions instead of saying from the movie(s), as demonstrated by my edits. --BalrogTrainer 02:32, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
