Re: The Lord of the Rings OnlineEdit
thanks for that note. Just ask whenever and I can spend the time to do the research (:
On Character infoboxes Edit
In my view the character infoboxes are mostly already established. They need updating but changing them so they are like unto their kindreds (Noldo & Sinda) is too much like what the Tolkien Gateway has firm. That's my view. Unless, you have a very unique scheme, but keep sending me ideas and I'll keep sending you them back. The Easterlings and the Haradrim could use an infobox scheme perhaps 'Men of Darkness'? I like the color scheme you made for the Dragons.--DarkLantern (talk) 11:52, April 9, 2015 (UTC)
I don't add a new title because I will also talk about character infobox. I think we should add a "Status" and "Death Reason" section. It can show the readers clearly about the character's living status and the reason that cause the character's death. What do you think? ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)

House of Elros family template Edit
The following were members of the House of Elros as well: Yávien, Oromendil, Axantur, (children of Nolondil) Lindissë, Ardamir, Cemendur (children of Axantur), Írildë and Hallatan (children of Cemendur). They should be added to [[Template:House of Elros]]--DarkLantern (talk) 21:51, April 25, 2015 (UTC)
RE:Portrayal in AdaptationsEdit
Hi, - Darkchylde, sorry to bother you again! But I discovered that some imageless location infobox will appear "[[File:|250px]]" on the top of the box. I tried to remove it but I failed. So, woukd you please fix it. Thanks! ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)

New series of pagesEdit
Hi, this is Prince of Erebor...again. I want to ask that should I add the family members of Tolkien, letters of Tolkien and Lords of Gondor category + disambiguation page? ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
RE RE:New series of pagesEdit
RE RE RE:New Series of Pages + RemindEdit
I guess Princes of Ithilien aren't a Lord of Gondor. But I am not sure so I asked you about it. Besides, please keep an eye on a new user, 沈阳代开餐饮住宿发票. As it is simpified Chinese and it means "Coupons of dinning and accommodation in Shenyang(a city in China)". So I afraid that he may type advertisements on the pages. ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
Hi - Darkchylde, I think Mim, Ibun and Khîm shouldn't be on the Template, instead they should be on a Petty-Dwarf Template. And I may help to correct and create the templates if necessary. ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
Falls of SirionEdit
Hi - Darchylde, I found the Falls of Sirion page and it is a mess. Everything there is linked to Tolkien Gateway, even the content and references. I don't know how to fix it, please check it and repair it. Thanks! ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
New temporary background?Edit
With the recent passing of Sir Christopher Lee, perhaps update the background for the next month or so that features Saruman? Could be a good way to honor him.18:27, June 11, 2015 (UTC)
- Alright, I have one designed currently on my test wiki. Do you like that design?
20:51, June 12, 2015 (UTC)
- I uploaded a new version. I tried scouring for it but all the images of him being knighted were too small :(. Also, if you'd like a different font/color, just tell me which.
03:01, June 13, 2015 (UTC)
- Alright, added one with the lotr font.
03:47, June 13, 2015 (UTC)
- You'd need to download the file from the wiki yourself then upload it through Special:ThemeDesigner as only admins can change the background.
18:02, June 13, 2015 (UTC)
Hi -Darkchylde, why the letter pages will automatically added "navigation templates" to the category after the add the "Letters template"? I tried to fix it but I couldn't find out the problem. ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
- Besides, I have put the afd on Gino Acevedo, Gerontius "The Old" Took and Taking the hobbits to Isengard pages for quite a period. Please delete it to keep this Wiki neater. Thanks! ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
New blogs Edit
Hey fellow Admin. :)
I wondered, do you happen to know how to make it so that the creation of a Blog can be seen in the Wiki Activity bar that's always on the right of the screen? Or, perhaps, to be something that Wiki users here receive an email about?
(Specifically, "A new blog post, blah blah, has been created by so-n-so" showing up in the inbox)
I thought to ask you since you were able to help with the recent tech question I asked DarkLantern, concerning the "Added by ___" caption on pictures. (And I can ask him about this as well- so no worries.)
Hi - Darkchylde, I am going on an exchange tour to Germany and Italy and I will return on 26/7. I may not update here so often but I still hope I can remove some spams or make some minor corrections. I will immediately continue my projects when I return home. Sorry for that and may God bless you! ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
RE RE: AbsenceEdit
Hi - Darkchylde, I am in Wittenburg now but I just saw a "Deceased" category that were added to some orcs' pages. I think it is quite useless, since nearly all of the characters died at the end of Fourth Age. Besides, many characters that didn't appear in the story but in the history like Helm Hammerhand, Saradoc Brandybuck, etc, died. So I suggest to delete it. What do you think? ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
RE RE:Deceased CategoryEdit
Thanks a lot! Germany is really a nice country. There are many aged and unique buildings. And there are the famous Martin Luther who made Germany to have a special history and role in the christian society. But to me, I don't used to see buildings that are so short (you know, Hong Kong is packed with skyscrapers). By the way I have bought a German The Hobbit novel with 7.95 Euros, although I don't know German. LOL!---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
RE: Germany TourEdit
Yes, it looks great. And it will be nice to have a same novel in 3 translations (English, Chinese and German) on my shelf. I will look for an Italian one later in my journey. (^o^) ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
Italian The HobbitEdit
Finally, I find this, The Hobbit in Italian!!! It took me one and a half day to search it!---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
RE:Italian The HobbitEdit
Hi - Darkchylde, while editing the Maiar pages, I found that Maia (Single form for Maiar) was linked to a Born for Hope character, sharing the same name. So I am thinking of should we fix the links manually into [[Maiar|Maia]] or rename Maia page into [[Maia (Born for Hope)]]. Which option do you prefer? ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
- Renamed and redirected Maia to Maiar. Thanks and have a nice day! (I gotta continue watching Hunter x Hunter) ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
RE:My Profile InfoEdit
LOL! I really dislike Tauriel's role. She is completely unrelated to the storyline. But despite that many people dislike Alfrid, I do accept his role in Desolation of Smaug. For his role in Battle of Five Armies, I think his role can be abstained after being punched by the Master of Lake-town and drown.
Bach's "Little" Fugue in G minor and "Toccata" and Fugue in D minor and also Schumann's "The Happy Farmer" are my favourite!! What about yours? But most importantly, I currently was addicted to Hunter x Hunter. It was really really awesome! ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
RE RE:My Profile InfoEdit
Agree! In fact, I don't like how Kili and Fili die in the film. Although there is only one sentence describing the brothers' death in the novel, but they are heros as they shielded their uncle. But in the film, Kili died for Tauriel and Fili was murdered by Azog, which I hate it so much.
I have finished watching episode 9. But I have a minor question, didn't Killua killed 2 candidate on the airship after the "ball game" with Netero, at the end of episode 7? So there should be only 40 candidate left. Anyway, it is truly a wonderful anime! ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
PS:For favourite character, I don't know. Perhaps Kurapika.
- Hi, I am now in episode 15, I just can't stop watching it. And for favourite character, I still don't know, perhaps Kurupika?! Anyway, cheers, friend! \(^o^)/ ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
Transitioning to new infoboxesEdit
I'm bringing this up to you because, as I understand it, you're one of the admins with some CSS knowledge and might be the best suited to bring this before the other admins for discussion:
We’re reaching out to a few of our top communities, hoping to get you on board with the migration to the new infobox markup. It's going to require some work, but we have tools to help
Why we’re doing this
Simply put: Most current infobox structures translate very poorly to mobile devices, and indeed any device that doesn’t use desktop-style displays. On desktops and laptops, they often look amazing. The problem is that more and more of our contributors visit Wikia from a mobile device.
To see just how much traffic has become mobile, you can check out this graph from our forum post about infoboxes a couple weeks back:
Mobile is the future. Not just for Wikia, but for the web as a whole. Take a look at the recent trends and future growth predictions for mobile traffic - it's staggering.
We partnered with the Wikia community to create this new markup to make sure that your hard work can be displayed on mobile devices (as well as any future technologies) easily and without any new coding conventions. It'll take some effort up front, but we’re here to help with it, and the work you put in now will pay for itself tenfold in the future.
Tools we’ve designed to make the process easier
We've enabled two new features on your community. One is a tool for migrating the "old" infobox code to the new markup. It identifies templates on your wikia that look like infobox templates and places a box on the right rail of the template page. When you click the "Generate draft markup" button in this box, it opens a new tab containing a draft of your infobox using the new markup. This won't contain your previous CSS styling, though (assuming you've used any), and if you want the infoboxes to still look the same on desktop, you'll have to add it to Special:CSS instead of into the template, where it was before.
The second is a new feature on Special:Insights that will highlight which infoboxes on your wikia have not been migrated to the new infobox markup. It's fairly intuitive - you can click on the infobox title link itself to see the old markup, or simply click the "Convert!" button on the right, which performs the same action as the "Generate draft markup" button.
This is our help page for the new markup. I'll also watch this post - so feel free to ask any questions you have about this, and of course any questions other community members might have!
All the best,
Thank you for the last info on referals, im still confused about image uploading and the structure of text, im new as you probably know so please bear with me till i get the hang of it and i will try to pay more attention to my repeated mistakes when adding pics or contents. thank you.

Hi, - Darkchylde, how are you? I have finished episode 34. LOL I like how Gon defeat Gido and Killua electrocuted Riehlvelt. But I want to ask who is the girl that reconnect Hisoka's arms? She seems to be a Phantom Troupe member, right? ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
- I think the Zoldyck family seems hard-hearted and murderous. But I am starting to like Killua, his skills are quite impressive to me(He's a typical meta-human lol(^o^). And I am really looking forward what will happen in the Yorknew City on 1st September.
LoL! Killua's mother's electronic visor is really ghastly. I definitely don't want her to be my mother. And Gittarackur (I like to refer his disguise name, more than he real name, it seems much cooler lol) too, his eyes are...cunning. Makes me nervous too.
I thought the manga isn't ended yet. I think the zodiacs are going to Dark Continent (or something like that). It's a pity that the anime had ended so soon. ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
Sorry for late reply, I went camping with my friends.
Well, I am not a huge fan of animes, but I know these kind of scenes (naked scenes) are often seen. So I have no special feeling on that scene...lol
Oh really? That's nice! Well, I guess you have been to either Ocean Park or Disneyland, right? And Star Avenue/the Peak? What do you think about them? And which is your favourite attractions?
Hope you enjoy your time here! (lol if you told me earlier I could suggest you to go to some more special and meaningful places like Ninepin Groups [An ideal place for hiking and geographical studies, as there are many different kinds of landscapes and hexagonal vertical rhyolite columns, a sort of volcanic rock only found in that island] , University of Hong Kong [First university in Hong Kong found in 1911, ranked as 26th best university in the world], etc. Tram [Oldest and Slowest public transport in Hong Kong which still exists] is also very nice to travel and enjoy the scenary of Hong Kong.) ---- Prince of Erebor’’’-(Reply Press Here)
PS:Which hotel(s) did you stayed at?
RE: RE: Went TravellingEdit
Oh, Panda Hotel? You mean the one in Tsuen Wan? Well, that's a venerable hotel. I like the buffet there, it was awesome. But I think many Hong Kongers can speak English, not fluently, but basically, since HK have 12 years free education. And you have been to Victoria Habour at night? I think the night view is really charming! Disneyland, nice theme park, but was really packed with people. Have you play Space Mountain?
Hoi, I'm a relatively new editor to this wiki, but I have decent Wikia experience. Thus, I decided to check to see if the infoboxes needed updating, which they did. I started with Template:Infobox Person/Draft and Template:Infobox Non-canonical Character/Draft, since they came up first in insights. :P Figured I'd let you look over them and tweak or approve them as you see fit.

Infoboxes: Update Edit
(P.S.: This is Da Weirdo, BTW. I changed my account name for some reason.)
Uin edit Edit
Extended editions Edit
The user Ederchil has blocked from tolkiengateway.Acording to him, the reason is counter-productive edit warring. Could you convince him to change his decision about me and to regain the ability to edit a page on Tolkien Gateway.
Completing it Edit
Hello.You did good work by removing the spoiler warning from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.But the spoiler warning still remains in the content Plot of the same page.Can you remove the spoiler warning from that content of the page that I am talking about?I do not have permission to edit this page,as opposed to you.
Good job captain.
As I see, the page The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, is protected to prevent editing. So that means I do not have permission to edit this page.Why this page is protected to prevent editing? Here,for the pages The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies I do have permission to edit these. Could you unlock the page The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, in order to be able to edit it? I will not change it in the point.
Can you unlock the page The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in order for me to be able to edit this page; Why the pages The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies are free for editing;Can you do the same thing to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug;
Why doesn't someone unlock the page The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in order for me to be able to edit this page; Why the pages The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies are free for editing;Can you do the same thing to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug; I will not make big changes to the page The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.Can you unlock this page;
I have a question on one of your editing-goals that are listed on your profile page:
How are you thinking of updating the etymologies?
Oh I wasn't speaking of you actually getting the task done - I was asking what "updating the etymologies" will entail.
On Elf FriendsEdit
On Faramir vandalismEdit
On Language templateEdit
I must ask you not to implement that language template yet. One reason is because templating the translations makes it harder for the experts to make corrections of words that I was not sure about. Also, I found in my researches that not all those Cyrillic-based languages have the exact same characters. Not all these words I was sure of that's why I left 'question marks' next to some of the words, because the word didn't come out right in the translation generation and research. So I'm asking you to hold off on that idea for now.--DarkLantern (talk) 05:19, January 21, 2016 (UTC)
On Image uploadsEdit
You are correct. I spoke with her over the web and I know she would not have wanted anyone to upload her works without her permission. So, I'm asking you to please delete any image that anyone else but me uploaded. Remember that I had once told you about how I carefully negotiated with her to use only three image she personally sent me.--DarkLantern (talk) 12:44, January 28, 2016 (UTC)
Thank You for finally Unblocking me DArchylde. Obviously I didn't really know about the rules and policys of using this website. But I would like to continue using this site and help with building more info for characters which is referenced of course. Hence, i have plenty questions: 1. What can you do with a Page, like more detailed info on topic/essays for characters and events??? 2. How do you findout whether the images are copyright and whether they are permitted to share 3. For copyright images not shared, how do you get permission from the artist to use an image of theirs? eve-stardust (talk) 06:50, Feb.15, 2016 --Eve-stardust (talk) 13:21, February 15, 2016 (UTC)
Actually, do you guys have a list of aritists who have given permission to share their images??? And what are the features for the option "Add a Page" for a particular website page like is it for giving more detailed info of event, character, place etc.? Eve-stardust (talk) 15:10, February 16, 2016 (UTC)
Yes, you should be prepared to deal with those articles as soon as possible; however, the user who separated the two (Glorfindel) says that they are separate, or he did. The way I understand it is that two are the same. Take care and be sure that you have it all properly sorted out before you merge it.--DarkLantern (talk) 13:34, February 25, 2016 (UTC)
Hi I'm toy 2345 Do you know what 220.127.116.11 did? He vandelized a page and renamed it middle earth durning d word please block him. The second user I'm reporting is 18.104.22.168. He also did vandelism. The third one is 22.214.171.124 they need be blocked or it's possible they could be sockpuppets of 126.96.36.199 who was already blocked.
Still new at all this, sorry for the repeated mistakes as they are not done on purpose. I am still learning so please bear with me, im so confused sometimes on what is right and what is wrong, i will pay more attention to your inputs.
You said "spelling mistakes" please give me examples of mine. I have been very careful and use Tolkien's alphabets for names of anything or anyone, I don't think you seem to acknowledge how much time and effort i'm trying to make One Wiki For All a bigger library with more info than the Tolkien Gateway site. I don't think u notice that i have spent my time & effort to provide much info for most of the Valar and Maiar. Eve-stardust (talk) 17:56, March 31, 2016 (UTC)
RE: Spelling Edit
No i don't find your replies condescending but positive more detailed info. It would be better for me when you comment about my mistakes by also including atleast one example, i understand clearly that way or else i tend to get confused.Eve-stardust (talk) 15:00, April 1, 2016 (UTC)
Does this site have permission for Antonio Vinci's artwork? It would be more easier if i know the list of artists that have given their permission to do so.
