Hm... the Appendix of the Children of Hurin mentions that Orgol (not Orgof) was a later name of that Elf (although Christopher decided to keep Saeros). The article says that Orgof is his early name. So who is wrong? Sage 14:32, 30 July 2008 (EDT)

Orgof is mentioned in HoMe 2, 3, 4, 5 and 11 as an early name. Orgol appears only in 11, where CJRT reads "Orgoph and Orgol" in a note to Orgof. Apparently a late change, it's unclear what exactly the final form was. -- Ederchil 14:42, 30 July 2008 (EDT)

Main image discussion

I think that the main image of this page should be changed to a different image which does not overly emphasize Saeros's nudity. Saeros's leap may have been a significant moment, but there are other images that could be used. In addition, Saeros's face in the image looks off and is lacking in clarity. I do think that images of nudity should be replaced whenever possible and if possible.Dour1234 (talk) 23:16, 14 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think the image is fine as is. Artistic nudity such as this is perfectly acceptable to even the most prudish sensibilities, and moreover none of his naughty bits are even showing so you're really making something of nothing. Not even Mary Whitehouse would have had an issue with this image. Mord 07:32, 15 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Artistically, and as a matter of showing the subject, I prefer the picture of Ebe Kastein proposed by User:JR Snow. The existing one should be used in the text, but is not suitable (clear enough) for a main image. Sage (talk) 06:38, 16 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
