[edit] Categories

Hi, I think only a few of the categories you are adding are fine. You should check this before continue: Tolkien_Gateway:Manual_of_Style#Categories. --LorenzoCB 12:13, 14 December 2019 (UTC)

[edit] Sauron article

Hi. Please, leave alone the Sauron article. You making many errors: You are using a quote that belongs to the Thû article, not Sauron. You can't change the main image just because: Help:Images#Rules. There is no need to explain the origins of Mairon in the introduction when they are going to be repeated in its section: Tolkien_Gateway:Manual_of_Style#Introduction.--LorenzoCB 12:40, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

[edit] Morgoth's Ring

It seems that you had problems with the reference. I corrected what you wrote to <ref>{{MR|P2}}</ref>, but probably you should give more precise chapter and page.

In general the code {{work|chapter}}, p. xx) is used (this shortcuts for works, chapters as described on pages for individual templates and pages by hand).

"The History of Middle-earth series - Include page numbers in citations from editions published by HarperCollins or Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (all of which have the same pagination)" Do you have one of these editions?

<ref name="something"> lets you repeat references:

one<ref name=abc>sourceABC</ref> two<ref>sourceXYZ</ref> three<ref name=qwe>sourceQWE</ref> four<ref name=abc/> five<ref name=qwe/>
<references />

one[1] two[2] three[3] four[1] five[3]

  1. 1.0 1.1 sourceABC
  2. sourceXYZ
  3. 3.0 3.1 sourceQWE
