Hi! I read that TG policy on canonicity is kinda leave it to the reader, but explaining that they are early/rejected concepts or including "Other versions of the Legendarium". Shouldn't the Category:Disputed canonicity and the {{Disputedcanon}} tag be removed then? Or at least cleaned up. How can we disput canonicity on characters like Ilmandur, who is a removed character? But why Óswine should be disputed? I would personally choose the article format that Inglor Felagund has: just explain the concept within its context and if it has more repercussions within the Legendarium.

After many discussions, we decided years ago to not have any categorisation or system of canonicity at TG, and that the tag "disputed" should be removed (after the relevant articles have been edited along the lines you mention above). In other words, feel free to edit articles accordingly!--Morgan 19:56, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
I'll clean them with the time then. The categorisation will be useful to check them all and include the info I said. Thanks! --LorenzoCB 20:34, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
