[edit] Redirects

Hi there. Thanks for taking your time on filling the alternative names with redirects. However I had other thoughts for them. The alternative names (such as "perelda" or "Singollo") should rather be filled with dictionary entries and etymology. I'd better click on perelda and see a Quenya entry that says it refers to the half-elves and what it means, rather than be redirected to a narrative article about what half-elves are and their role in history, followed by a generic Etymology section. I am not asking to revert your edits, but simply sharing my initial idea. What do you say? Sage 08:01, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

I've never doubted or opposed the idea. What I'm thinking is, I haven't actually written entries for those, but they can be written. When you get a redirect, and it redirects you to another article, it also has a link that says "redirected from [redirect]" or something similar. You click that, and edit and change the redirect into an entry. I'm not focusing on every aspect, but that's how it's done. - Gilgamesh 08:04, 28 January 2010 (UTC)


[edit] Quenya Declension

"There has been a recent heavy debate on this at Forum:Quenya declension template appearance. Since you have weighed on this before, could you weigh in now?" - Gilgamesh

- On what do you wish for me to comment, there seems to be nought else but an argument with which I was not involved? --Breragor (TalkContribsEdits) 19:25, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Fair enough. - Gilgamesh 19:30, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

On what did you want me to weigh though? I see you guys have made "peace" so I believe all is settled right? --Breragor (TalkContribsEdits) 01:53, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Well, you were one of the ones who gave me feedback about my linguistics edits. I just wanted your opinion on what should be done. For now, I've hidden all the inflection templates, though they haven't been deleted. I guess we still need to figure out how to handle these details more responsibly. - Gilgamesh 04:04, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

I'll take a look at it all and then we should work out a better system. --Breragor (TalkContribsEdits) 19:42, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
