Keep in mind the naming conventions. Images from Lotro should be named "Lord of the Rings Online - Character's name". Also, "Images of" categories should include the full pagename, with the "(rider of Rohan)". You also need to manually add [[Category:Images from The Lord of the Rings Online: Riders of Rohan]] to all of them. And lastly, if the character does not yet have an image in the infobox, you can put the image there. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 15:16, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Is File:Lord of the Rings Online - Brand.jpg okay? Malachi 15:23, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
As far as I can tell, yes. I cleaned up the others for you. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 15:25, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Sligh note: you need to add the name, so "The Lord of the Rings Online: Riders of Rohan", to the category. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 15:27, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Like this then? File:Lord of the Rings Online - Fastred.jpg Malachi 15:32, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Nice screenshots! I have a picture of Earnur I'll upload but feel free to overwrite it if you take a better one. -Sullathron(Talk)(Edits) 09:50, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

PS: I would however suggest keeping the floaty names off for screenshots. -Sullathron(Talk)(Edits)
I have seen that you have added more images which breach the naming conventions. Should you do it again you will receive a block. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 15:48, 6 June 2020 (UTC)
What exactly was the problem with my image upload? Was it the order of Source/Subject in the name? Malachi 19:01, 7 June 2020 (UTC)
The categorisations and the naming convention. This has been explained to you before. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 19:38, 7 June 2020 (UTC)
So, like this one then? I forgot about the naming order, but threatening a block for that honest mistake seems a bit harsh, doesn't it? Malachi 21:22, 7 June 2020 (UTC)
Almost, once again the category has a typo in it. No, it's not harsh: you've been warned several times and as an administrator it is extremely time-consuming and tiresome to have to tidy up the mess other people make. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 21:47, 7 June 2020 (UTC)
