Hello there[edit source]

Welcome Dwarf Lord, I see you have been quite busy! Your contributions to the wiki have been great and it has helped to keep me from slacking off, just wanted to thank you for all the help. If you ever want to discuss anything feel free to pick my brain in our chatroom or on my talk page or in the Community Portal. Thanks again for your contributions. --Hyarion 02:40, 30 March 2006 (EST) eh?[edit source]

Just noticed you were from, very cool, one of my favorite message boards. Maybe you would like this idea I've had. Let's face it, we can't put everything into a single article. Especially subjects which are debatable. For instance I think it would be cool if at the bottom of the Orcs page we linked to the BD thread orcs and goblins- what's the difference???. This way visitors could find relevant discussions on the topic at hand, plus we are helping BD out by sending some visitors their way. I've already started this in articles such as the Entwives one. Let me know what you think. Maybe we could get a thread on BD asking people to reply with threads that they deem informative enough to be linked to. --Hyarion 18:56, 30 March 2006 (EST)

hi, u wanted the place I got Nan Ungol from, and yes it was I looked on a poster of Mordor to confirm its existance as well.

Melko[edit source]

Regarding Telimektar, you continue to change Melko to Melkor. In these instances Melko is an earlier form of Melkor and is in fact the title of the of the text so they should be left as is. Thanks. --Hyarion 02:46, 1 April 2006 (EST)

Minor Edits[edit source]

Just so you know, when you make minor edits, such as concerning categories, creating redirects, minor grammer and spelling, it is usually a good idea to check the box above the Submit button that says "this is a minor edit". I notice that you haven't been doing so, and I'm not sure if you didn't realize about it or what. . . --Narfil Palùrfalas

I did know, I just forget to do it. --Dwarf Lord 19:15, 16 October 2006 (EDT)

Chat[edit source]

Hey DL, Tar-Telperien and I can almost always be found in our IRC Chat, Narfil has been stopping by as well. We'd love it if we could see you stop by sometime as chatting can sometimes be much more effective and easier means of discussion. Eventually we'd like to setup weekly meetings to discuss the affairs of the website. The easiest way to connect is by simply clicking here, don't be a stranger :) --Hyarion 16:32, 5 November 2006 (EST)

Thanks for the invite, will check it out. --Dwarf Lord 23:32, 5 November 2006 (EST)

Dwarf Search Rankings[edit source]

Hey there Dwarf Lord, being a Dwarf I thought you'd get a kick out of this; search Google or Yahoo for "dwarves tolkien" or any of of the houses of the Dwarves followed by tolkien, like "longbeards tolkien" and look who turns up near the top ;) I've been noticing this with a lot of terms, TG is ranking a lot higher on search engines. I'll publish the stats of what people search for when they find us soon, but we're getting a ton of searches. Thanks for all your hard work. --Hyarion 01:20, 4 March 2007 (EST)

Awesome! Our fame is spreading! Thanks for being such a great leader Hyarion. --Dwarf Lord 01:26, 4 March 2007 (EST)

I've found that Yahoo frequently puts us at the top, but much less so with Google. --Narfil Palùrfalas 09:03, 4 March 2007 (EST)

Concerning Category:Images[edit source]

Dwarf Lord, I've noticed that you've put a lot of time into adding categories to Category:Images. Well, before you spend any more time at it, I was thinking (and I believe Hyarion was as well) that it might be best to put categories of images into subcategories of images that eventually all come down to Category:Images. For instance, Category:Images of Éomer is a part of Category:Images of Rohirrim, which is in turn a part of Category:Images of Men, which is a subcategory of Category:Images of characters, found at last in Category:Images. This systemizes the categories, and before you put more work into it, I just wanted to alert you to this. If you are merely putting uncategorized categories of images into a place where we can further categorize them, then that's fine. --Narfil Palùrfalas 08:27, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

Yes I realized this. I'm putting them in there so they are out of the way so we can recategorize them from there. I'm sorry for not clarifying that. --Dwarf Lord 11:36, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

Alright, that's fine. I just wanted to make sure. Thanks for your help with the categorizing; it's greatly needed at present. --Narfil Palùrfalas 20:01, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

Happy Birthday![edit source]

Not sure if you turned 18 recently, but if so: Happy Birthday! :) 18, that's the big one. --Hyarion 12:06, 1 September 2007 (EDT)

Thanks Hyarion. Yep I'm now 18.--Dwarf Lord 00:23, 2 September 2007 (EDT)

First Sacking of Gundabad[edit source]

Hey, as talk pages themselves aren't that easy to notice, I mention here too that I started a talk page on the aforementioned article some time ago and would like you as the creator of the article to comment on it:

Meetings[edit source]

Hi! I just wanted to draw your attention to here. We are currently discussing the idea of a weekly site meeting. Thanks!-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  18:15, 7 August 2008 (EDT)

Meeting - Sunday 5th September[edit source]

Welcome back![edit source]

Hey Dwarf Lord, it's great to see you back! :) You probably don't remember me, but I've admired your contributions to Tolkien Gateway, it'd be great if you could return 'full time'. -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  02:30, 21 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Well thanks Aragorn I appreciate that. I will try my hardest to be full time. --Dwarf Lord 02:32, 21 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I couldn't agree more, great to have you on board! Feel free to join up in Chat sometime. (Also, you don't know how we could contact some other "older" editors, do you?) --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 11:44, 21 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Welcome back. --Amroth 16:03, 21 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Unfortunately no. I haven't talked to the likes of Hyrion, Narfil, etc. in years. --Dwarf Lord 04:39, 22 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Glad to see you're back DL! --Hyarion 13:59, 22 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hyarion!! glad to see you're still around old friend, and fearless leader! --Dwarf Lord 16:20, 22 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sources[edit source]

Hello Dwarf Lord. I notice you seldom use sources when adding new information to articles. Please start using the reference templates (the Template:HM is a good place to start), and let me know if you have any questions on how to use it.--Morgan 08:21, 10 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template:User 6y[edit source]

Are you going to make Template:User 6y? And congrats on 6 years!-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  19:43, 16 September 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey Aragorn, yea I would if I could but I have no clue how to create them. Thanks! Can't believe it's been this long and how much has been done! It's come a long way from the days where it was Hyarion, Narfil, myself, and a few others trying to figure this thing out.--Dwarf Lord 21:29, 16 September 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
