Tolkien Gateway talk:Original research
Delete or update?
Should we delete this? Or update it to describe current policy?--14:25, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
"Unreferenced claims of theories are not to be criticized or removed from the text on the grounds that they are unreferenced."
- We decided to change to Original research policy at a TG chat meeting years ago, but so far this page hasn't been updated.--Morgan 00:17, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
- I also disagree. Indeed, this statement conflicts with TG:MOS#Canon, which not only states that citations to reliable sources are needed to support theories, but that in-text attribution also must be included so that it's clear who proposed the theory. The OR policy and the MOS couldn't be more different on this point. Protospace 08:45, 1 December 2017 (UTC)
