A Edit

"LOTR:Current polices" should be a button on the "On the Wiki" menu tab, along with "Wiki Activity", "Random page", "Videos", and "Photos". Otherwise, it's too hard to find the page if you don't already know its name. - Gradivus, 01:11, December 22, 2012 (UTC)

Update: I normally use "Help" and then the link under "Policies" to find this page. - Gradivus, 18:22, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

A few points Edit

Hello. What is our current policy about references? I understand they are not necessary but would it be counted as harmful I started adding ref tags and respective templates into the written information? Also I have a few suggestions for new and needed templates, who should I talk to? (Yes, I know there is a forum but I rather keep this more into an individual discussion). Thanks in advance.

You're right about references. They are REQUIRED! I'll see to added it to the rules soon.--DarkLantern (talk) 20:36, February 15, 2013 (UTC)
  • Good change. I've already started using references to Tolkien writings using the Tolkien Gateway convention, which italicizes books and puts chapter names in quotation marks when they're on the same line (example: The Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring, Book I, Chapter 7: "In the House of Tom Bombadil"). Chapters are normally italicized when they are used by themselves, for example when talking about them in a paragraph. - Gradivus, 18:20, December 24, 2013 (UTC)


Newbie here, with a lot of spare time on my hands. :) Before blundering into it all, I wanted to clarify what is the wiki's official policy on British/American spellings? It says nothing in the rules, and I wasn't sure if there is a rule yet. ??? Does anyone know? Bearing in mind that the books are written in British English.

I think it's British. ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
