[edit] Maps

Hey there Smeagol :) Great to see you around here. Just a heads up, right now I'm merging my map collection with your maps and removing duplicates, perfecting filenames, etc. so you might want to hold off on uploading too many so we don't get duplicates as I'll try and upload everything at once tomorrow. Then I'll add categories to everything so visitors can view them by region or by artist. Also, would you prefer to be credited as SWJ or Steven White Jr.? I'll make sure each of your images has a link back to Tolkienion so we can generate more visitors/page rank for the site. Keep up the great work! --Hyarion 19:17, 31 August 2007 (EDT)

Hey as well. OK, no more maps (although I'm only uploading my own maps or those which I contributed to, you know, back then...). You can credit me as you wish, I don't mind. But do not put links to the Tolkienion website here, at least not until I've given that site a remake... Smeagol 19:39, 31 August 2007 (EDT)
Sounds good, I'll use a template on all your images so we can add a link easily. You're not allowed to give Tolkienion a re-design, you're already making most other Tolkien sites look bad :p --Hyarion 19:37, 31 August 2007 (EDT)
But that site needs a re-design very badly. It gives me a headache everytime I see it. So I guess one day I will work on a new version Smeagol 19:44, 31 August 2007 (EDT)
I've almost got the maps all renamed and I've deleted the duplicates I could find, and removed ones that have been published, I should be uploading them all this weekend. So we don't have duplicates on the wiki I'll probably be removing the maps we currently have uploaded, so you might not want to bother uploading any. Have a nice day --Hyarion 11:43, 2 September 2007 (EDT)
I've uploaded all the maps by you that I had. If I missed any or uploaded any duplicates or something, let me know. Now to upload the rest and get to tagging all these maps. :) --Hyarion 15:19, 2 September 2007 (EDT)
In fact, there are some maps that I want to be deleted... especially those that show areas outside the map that comes with LotR, because when I did those maps I had no knowledge of Tolkien's own sketched maps displaying those areas. Also there are some very low-quality maps in the collection that are better kept off the web Smeagol 15:32, 2 September 2007 (EDT)
Okay, go ahead and add the {{delete}} template to any image you see fit. --Hyarion 15:37, 2 September 2007 (EDT)
OK, I promise I will make some new maps for those that I deleted... Smeagol 15:55, 2 September 2007 (EDT)
The rest of the maps will be uploaded shortly, if you could hold off on uploading anymore maps that would be fantastic. :) That way we won't get duplicates. --Hyarion 16:12, 2 September 2007 (EDT)
Okay, I'm done, thanks for your patience :) Just to be safe I didn't upload the bulk of the published maps. Now I'll get started on tagging so it's easier to navigate.

What will happen with the maps now? Smeagol 16:06, 12 September 2007 (EDT)

The next step is categorizing them by region and including the best ones into articles about that specific region. I'll try and get started on this soon. --Hyarion 23:29, 12 September 2007 (EDT)

Hi Steven!!! I have been downloading and admiring your maps since I was looking for Tolkien stuff around the movies time!!! Thank you for that great work!! I wanted to ask you, what software did you used for those vector-like maps?? Sage 15:30, 5 August 2008 (EDT)

Well, I used a software that I wrote myself, and then Photoshop. Smeagol 14:06, 20 August 2008 (EDT)

Hey, haven't been here in a while. What's going on? Smeagol 18:30, 26 March 2008 (EDT)

[edit] Images

Hi, welcome back. Just letting you know, we've had a change in the image policy. You need to add one of these templates to images now. If you have any problems, feel free to ask us. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 06:33, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Indeed, it's entirely your choice whether you want to retain the copyright (where you'd use the Template:Copyright-permission), or whether you want to give it the free GFDL licence (where you'd use Template:GFDL-self). This page explains it all. -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  09:35, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
