Could one of the TG Administrators expand the HH template to include the sections of the text between the numbered chapters? These sections are at the same level as John Rateliff's chapters (and include their own text notes) so they cannot just fit in with the existing template structure. These would be:

  • After "VII. Medwed" and before "VIII. Mirkwood": Plot Notes A
  • After "VIII. Mirkwood" and before "IX. In the Halls of the Elvenking": The Enchanted Stream, Mirkwood Reconsidered, and Plot Notes B
  • After "XI. The Lonely Mountain" and before "XII. Conversations with Smaug": Plot Notes C
  • After "XIII. The Death of Smaug" and before "XIV. White the Dragon's Away...": Plot Notes D
  • After "XVa. The Kindness of Ravens" and before "The Third Phase": Plot Notes E and Plot Notes F

Since the plot notes sections show Tolkien's early intentions and contrast with the finished story they are sources of fascinating details and being able to use the reference template would facilitate discussion of their points. --Gamling 06:11, 17 June 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Done. I also added a subdivision of the sections to the list (in order to have a better overview), and expanded the template with the sections of the "Fifth Phase" and the new material appearing the one-volume edition.--Morgan 12:52, 17 June 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
N.B.: there's no need to call for administrators to change templates — it can be done by all users.--Morgan 12:57, 17 June 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's nice to feel wanted, though! --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 13:35, 17 June 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
