Talk:Elrond

How about changing main image of Elrond? He looks a buit...uh...odd? --Morgan 12:20, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

What did you have in mind?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  13:40, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
That Elrond looks odd in this picture.--Morgan 16:06, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
If no one disagrees, I suggest changing to the image used in this old revision [[1]]. Morover, this other image was uploaded with permission. Unsigned comment by Morgan (talk • contribs).
I honestly don't like any of the images of Elrond already uploaded to TG.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  17:32, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
I prefer the current image to the previous one, but, as KingAragorn says, I don't think any of them are particularly great. I would be tempted by a film-image, and would suggest this one if it weren't for the weird contrast. On deviantArt, the vast majority of Elrond images are Hugo Weaving. Our current image is fourth on a Google Image search for Elrond. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:52, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
I like this one. We can always ask DeviantART artists for permission.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  13:08, 19 November 2011 (UTC)
It is good, and do ask away as it would be nice to have it here anyway, but I think we should have a film one. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 14:05, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
Would you prefer a photograph from the film, or an artistic picture of Hugo Weaving's Elrond?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  14:11, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
That's defiantely a great picture, KA! We should ask him/her for permission, and put use it as our main image. Maybe we should also ask if could have these images too: Fingon, Lúthien, Legolas, LOTR, The Lost Road, Galadriel, Maedrhos, Arwen, Finrod, Finrod, Tirion, Gandalf rides to MT, Aragorn, Rivendell. Actually al his/her images are great. --Amroth 14:33, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
A photo, because I think we have so few of them! And yes, a general request to use their art would be good. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 15:00, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
How's this one?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  17:34, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
That one is good. --Amroth 18:53, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
It is! --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 08:45, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

Not a Noldo – in the essay "The Problem of -Ros", Tolkien states that, although his ancestry includes all elven clans, Elrond favored his Sindarin descent preeminently. I have removed reference to him as a Noldorin elf. Inasmuch as he chose to be an elf, he also gets a say in his heritage, which is Sindarin.

[edit] Infobox image

I think we should change the infobox image to something like this because illustrations based on the novels are favoured. If anyone has any suggestions, I am open to all. Also, two other images on the page are from the films while there is a supply of others. --DoctorWellington 23:20, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

I agree it should be changed. My own preference is this image; although I like the one you've chosen, long images in infoboxes can create a bit of a problem with the layout of the page so they should be avoided (see Tar-Telperiën). --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 08:30, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
True. The image you suggested is very good, and it won't make the infobox interfere with the page content. --DoctorWellington 14:58, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
