  • Please indent your posts with ":" if replying to an existing topic (or "::" if replying to a reply, etc.).
  • I will generally respond here to comments that are posted here, rather than replying via your talk page (or the article talk page, if you are writing to me about an article), so you may want to watch this page.
  • If I have left a message on your talk page, please continue the discussion there; DO NOT reply here. This is ensure that discussions do not become fragmented over several talk pages.
⇒ Start a new talk topic.



I'm sorry again for what happened with Talk:Samwise Gamgee. It was a stupid decision of mine! I should have cleared it with you first. --DoctorWellington 02:08, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Don't worry about it. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 08:00, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Image Upload


I was trying to upload better quality versions of some pictures, namely from Jackson's Fellowship of the Ring and Bakshi's The Lord of the Rings (of which I recently acquired a Blu-ray copy of), but I found no upload option anywhere. Is it some limitation for being a new user or am I missing the upload option? Thanks in advance. Alexrd 12:00, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Yes, it is limited for new users. You will need to make a certain number of edits before you can upload. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 06:35, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
That explains it then. Thanks. Alexrd 16:23, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi again, quick question. When I'm uploading a better version of a picture, do I need to tag it for deletion so that the old versions can be removed later or it simply doesn't matter? Alexrd 15:44, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
On an image page you can upload a new version of an image. The original one will be just be overwritten, and wherever it is used on the wiki it will also be overwritten. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 15:45, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I was refering to the old versions listed at the bottom, once the new one is uploaded. Alexrd 15:48, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
You cannot mark them for deletion, and they will be kept. At some point we may wish to revert to an older version, just as older revisions of an article are kept. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 15:50, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

Dwarf vandal

That guy doesn't seem to be getting the hint. Sadly, I can't check regularly - I'm on vacation till Tuesday. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 20:18, 28 April 2018 (UTC)

Don't worry about it. I think we might need to protect more pages but we'll see how we go! --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 07:09, 29 April 2018 (UTC)


How are we for GDPR compliance? I've read it's more or less covered by the most recent MW update, but haven't been able to find any confirmation of that. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:01, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

Also, any chance of a SSL cert? Those things are becoming all the rage (and quite a necessity, SEO-wise) of late. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 17:56, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
On both of these things I don't actually know: it's Hyarion's domain! --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 17:33, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

Using citation templates on other wikis

Hello Mith. Would it be permissible or would it be inappropriate to copy Tolkien Gateway's citation templates for use on other Lord of the Rings-related wikis? -Sullathron(Talk)(Edits) 02:39, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

With the appropriate credit in line with our copyright policy, sure! Although I would say to any editor that they should consider editing Tolkien Gateway as the most comprehensive Tolkien-specific wiki. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 17:35, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! How would I do that, just mention on the template page that it was copied from this wiki? -Sullathron(Talk)(Edits) 18:40, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
However that particularly wiki usually does its copyright attribution. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 11:32, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

Question on Special:PopularPages

Hi, Mith! I'm new to Tolkien Gateway and an occasional editor on The One Wiki to Rule Them All. I was just wondering whether you'd know whether the Special:PopularPages page lists pageviews on a weekly, monthly, or lifetime basis. I noticed that the page itself does not specify that, so I'd be very grateful to you if you would be willing to satisfy my insatiable curiosity. Thanks in advance! :) --ShireHobbit 22:15, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

Lifetime, I believe. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 23:06, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
