I thought you should know that if you want to add a template, you only need to put <nowiki>{{templatename}}</nowiki>, depending on the template.  I thought originally that, like you, you had to copy the entire template and put it on the page, but that is not so.  For the speedy deletion template, all you need to add to the top of the page is {{delete}}.  There are some differences for such templates as the quote and infobox ones, but we can explain those if you ever need to use them. --[[User:Narfil Palùrfalas|Narfil Palùrfalas]] 12:48, 13 June 2007 (EDT)

Dr Death, welcome!

Hello and welcome to Tolkien Gateway. I hope you like the place and choose to join our work. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

Keep up the great work! — Hyarion

Thanks for all your help

Hey there Dr Death, I just wanted to thank you for all your help lately and also thanks for giving us a little insight into yourself ;) If you ever have any questions or suggestions don't hesitate to let me know. --Hyarion 01:59, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

Yes, thank you for all your help. I notice your edits on the House of Hador. If you want to see if it looks right, instead of saving the page, you can simply click "Show preview", which will show you a preview of the page without saving it. That way, you can make as many changes as you want, yet regulate it easily and save it only once. Just a suggestion. --Narfil Palùrfalas 14:09, 23 April 2007 (EDT)

Yeah, thanks for that tip, i apologise for clogging up the 'recent changes' section yesterday. I am pretty 'green' at editing on wiki's so you'll have to excuse that newbie error. But by christ are those family trees hard to line up!

Three Houses

Absolutely fine to merge. I was just tieing up some loose ends this morning. Thanks Findegil 10:25, 22 April 2007 (EDT)

Adding Templates

I thought you should know that if you want to add a template, you only need to put {{templatename}}, depending on the template. I thought originally that, like you, you had to copy the entire template and put it on the page, but that is not so. For the speedy deletion template, all you need to add to the top of the page is

"Go back to the abyss prepared for you!" — Gandalf
This page is a candidate for speedy deletion. If you disagree with its speedy deletion, please explain why on its talk page; if this page obviously does not meet the criteria for speedy deletion - or you intend to fix it - please remove this notice.
Administrators - Remember to check if anything links here and the page history (last edit) before deleting.

. There are some differences for such templates as the quote and infobox ones, but we can explain those if you ever need to use them. --Narfil Palùrfalas 12:48, 13 June 2007 (EDT)
