Does Tolkien Gateway have an e-mail address?

The user talk page of any active administrator is a great place to ask any question (for a list of administrators, see Tolkien Gateway:Administrators). However you may always contact for any general inquiries.

How do I create a new article?

Your best option is to click a red link, you will be directed to the edit page, add your content, click save, and you are good to go.

If you know of a page you want to create but there are no links to it, simply type it in the search box and then click the red link.


For people who have yet to finish reading The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, or even The History of Middle-earth, be careful when reading through this site: there are quite a few spoilers depending on how much of J.R.R. Tolkien's legendarium you have read. We don't want to reveal that Frodo Baggins falls into Mount Doom to someone who has not finished The Lord of the Rings and ruin the book for them, now do we?


Due to excessive spamming of links we have added rel=nofollow to any external link, which means when search engines browse the site you will not gain PageRank or higher ranking status on any search engine for placing your link here. This being said, as long as your link is valid and relevant you will of course receive increased traffic because the link is visible.
