Thanks for your edits, Sandy, and welcome to TG! If you check the changes I made to the reference you added to the article Fankil, you'll see how it's possible to simplify references by using templates. Basically, you can start from the Template:HM, and use specific templates (like Template:LT1), when such are available. Just let me know if you have any questions or if it seems complicated.--Morgan 18:18, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

I checked the templates and attempted to make a reference to another article. I think it was a success. Thanks for the tip, it is really useful and it saves a lot of time. I was suspecting that something like that existed, when I checked some other references, but I was not sure where to find it. Thanks again!--Sandy 22:36, 16 July 2014 (UTC)


Welcome to the TG. Greetings to Athens! Recently I also started adding information from the BolT and expand relevant details thereof.

BTW do you know there is an article about Greece? Sage 07:36, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Greetings to you too! Actually, I have never checked the articles related to Greece. Thanks for telling me, since I could find some things to add to it. --Sandy 13:37, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Sandy, I'm not sure if I've missed a discussion about this but I was wondering why you removed {{noncanon}} and/or [[Category:Noncanon elves]] from some articles? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 12:33, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Hey Mith. A month ago I was creating some new articles about the earlier stages of the legendarium, and I included them in non canon categories. However, Morgan told me that you now consider everything written by Tolkien canon. It is in his discussion page as well, you can check it. So, I asked if I could clean some if I spotted them and he said ok. Also, in the manual of style you say the same thing under canon, everything written by Tolkien is canon and everything in the adaptations is non canonical. --Sandy 14:12, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
You can also check the history of the Nielthi article. --Sandy 14:28, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough - I shall have a little dig around. Thanks! --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 20:57, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
No worries. I am not making any further changes until you decide. Do tell me if you want me to clean these up, I do not mind at all. :) --Sandy 21:51, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
