the overall look...

Hi there! I have noticed that you are much more acquanted with html and the wikisystem than i am.So far i have been quite happy with keeping the wiki simple and minimalist, however i did notice that adding the original stub and disambig tags or slideshows does affect the overall look of articles in a way far greater than i had expected... so i would like to ask you if maybe you would like to look for a general skin or colour/graphic pattern for the wiki you think could fit to the overall theme.Are you interested?

Regards --Haerangil (talk) 01:28, May 3, 2020 (UTC)

Yes, I'm honored that you asked, and I'd be happy to do so. I assume you're asking about a background image for the main page? Is there anything in particular you had in mind, or are you leaving that up to me? Also: is there any way for us to communicate privately, such as e-mail?

P.S. A quick investigation reveals that I cannot access the necessary tool(s) such as: Special:ThemeDesigner. "You do not have permission to access Theme Designer, for the following reason: The action you have requested is limited to users in one of the groups: Administrators, FANDOM Staff, FANDOM Helpers, Content Volunteers, Wiki Managers, Content Team Members."

well, i just gave you admin rights if that is ok to you.--Haerangil (talk) 03:31, May 3, 2020 (UTC)

Yes, that's great! I'll try not to screw things up too badly…. :-) Hlingler (talk) "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." EB Hall, "Friends of Voltaire", 1906 04:10, May 3, 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for your efforts.--Haerangil (talk) 04:12, May 3, 2020 (UTC)

OK, see what you think of these changes, and let me know - you may have to clear your browser's cached data and files to see the new graphics, including favicon). If you're not happy, that's ok, I won't be offended: we can revert with one click, or I keep editing until you're happy. We probably cannot keep the background image by Sampsa Rydman, since he owns it, but this is just for example.

I have changed the Top Navigation Bar, since the previous "Community/Blog" entry was utterly useless. We do have a forum, that's never been used, I'd like to add it to the Top Navigation Bar. Thoughts? Also: feedback on the previous changes that I made? Hlingler (talk) "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." EB Hall, "Friends of Voltaire", 1906 13:44, May 5, 2020 (UTC)

Okay so far, except that the top graphic does interfere/overlay a bit with the top right navigationbar.Everything else is quite fine.--Haerangil (talk) 15:48, May 5, 2020 (UTC)

OK I have removed the background graphic for the header/navbar, and added links for the forum. as usual, you may have to refresh the page or even clear browser cache to see the changes. Hlingler (talk) "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." EB Hall, "Friends of Voltaire", 1906 16:17, May 5, 2020 (UTC) P.S. I have formally requested permission to use the map graphic from Sampsa Rydman. We'll see if he reponds....

thank you.I had asked Sampsa Rydman before for general permission to use single graphics or bits of info from single articles from Lindefirion, but i had not asked for permission for any specific graphic or map.--Haerangil (talk) 16:33, May 5, 2020 (UTC)

Yfelwood and Orc mt lair maps

Hi there! I noticed you did upload some maps for a location within Yfelwood... however i could not quite read the maps title, it isn't "optane"? I wanted to add them to the yfelwood article... thx and regards --Haerangil (talk) 04:42, May 4, 2020 (UTC)

The word he uses is "octane", with the "c" reversed: "ↄꜾ". The full title is: "The Yfelwood Oↄtane and Orↄ Movntain Lair". His use of the word "octane" is obscure and "not by the book"; I believe he uses it in the sense of eight (8), since there are 8 standing stones. There are three versions of the map: one B&W, two color of different size/resolution. The files names all start with "Evilwood*" Hlingler (talk) "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." EB Hall, "Friends of Voltaire", 1906 05:00, May 4, 2020 (UTC)

thanks!So i guess he just means "eight stones" then... --Haerangil (talk) 17:57, May 4, 2020 (UTC)

Re:Hello?

Hello! For your first question Fandom currently does not support private communication. Alternatively Discord is a good way to accomplish that. As for the header colors, in the coding you currently have background:white;. Instead use background:#000000; color:#000 which will change the background and text color to whatever hex code you would like. --awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 10:47, May 17, 2020 (UTC)

Re:Question

Regarding those highlighted new pages, it means that those new pages have not yet been "patrolled". Patrolled means that a user edited the page and marked it as "Patrolled" which is used as an admin tool to show that a page has been reviewed. When an admin creates a page, it is automatically marked as "patrolled", hence why pages you made are not highlighted. --awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 07:15, May 19, 2020 (UTC)

Re: Fonts

To implement a custom font on the wiki, view this tutorial. Also view this thread on some useful information about them. --awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 07:19, May 19, 2020 (UTC)

Re: Another Question

Im not too familiar with those pages but they seem to have been a way to name Wiki back in the day. Due to the theme designer now being the only way to change the name, I'd say those MediaWiki pages no longer serve a purpose. --awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 02:56, May 22, 2020 (UTC)

Re: Disambig

Yes it is possible though AutoWikiBrowser. If you have a bot account set up in AWB you can generate a list of pages under the category Category:Disambiguation and then under the "More" tab there's an option to remove a category. View this tutorial on how to set up AWB. Also view this tutorial on how to set up a bot if the wiki doesn't have one. --awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 02:03, May 23, 2020 (UTC)

Re: Autorefresh

Take a look at this help page. --awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 23:39, May 24, 2020 (UTC)

Re:Community To Do List

The Community To Do List is intended as a replacement of the Community Portal on Special:Community. Special:Community can be found in the Explore tab of the Wiki Navigation. If you delete the to do list then it will blank the lower section of Special:Community. --awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 15:37, May 27, 2020 (UTC)

Meledhil

Hello good sir, I have been trying to find information about this artifact that the Princes of Dol Amroth held. Have you read anything about it? I thought I had read that it does something similar to Cirdan's water bracelets in MERPS, but I am thinking about deleting that page because I can't find anything in regards to the Meledhil so far. I was hoping you had some info about it. Moran half valar (talk) 04:53, June 9, 2020 (UTC)

No, sorry, never heard of it. Have you checked "Havens of Gondor", "Sea-lords of Gondor", and "Treasures of Middle-earth"? Or perhaps it's a 3rd-party invention (i.e.: MERP Fan Modules)? --Hlingler (talk) "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." EB Hall, "Friends of Voltaire", 1906 05:25, June 9, 2020 (UTC)
P.S. Or, you could mark it with {{Update}} or {{Citation needed}}.


I have seen it in MERPS Middle Earth Vol 2 Mannish races. So it is there, but I just can't find out what it is. I have been looking in Southern Gondor the People, but I'll try to do what you suggest. Thank you. Moran half valar (talk) 01:50, June 10, 2020 (UTC)

Indeed, it seems that you are correct: I can find no details of it beyond the mention in LoMe Vol.II, p.42, where both Adrahil I & II are listed as "Bearer of Meledhil". The next obvious "bearer" of the item would be Imrahil son of Adrahil II, but his blurb on p.32 does not mention this item. There is no mention of it in "Havens of Gondor" so far as I can see.
IMHO, in the absence of any other description, you are free to create your own interpretation of this item as you see fit - this is a sub-creation wiki! Just keep in mind: "Meledhil" means something like "love of elves" or "dear to elves". --Hlingler (talk) "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." EB Hall, "Friends of Voltaire", 1906 02:52, June 10, 2020 (UTC)


Thank you for that friend, I didn't find anything in Southern Gondor the People or the Beacon of Gondor module. So I don't think there are any stats on this item at all. Since you understand the translation--I believe that a 100th level water law ability is too powerful for an item--and as you said it means "Dear to Elves." So I am not sure what I could do to make up something that adheres to that name. A mystical jewel perhaps that does something. I really don't know. Moran half valar (talk) 15:37, June 10, 2020 (UTC)

Re: Infobox

Seems there may have been an error when it was ported to a portable infobox. Ill revert it back and take a look again on the migration draft. --awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 02:46, June 18, 2020 (UTC)

Northmen of the Second Age

Hey Hlingler,

I was wondering if you knew of any tribal northmen and bear-men of the misty mountains that lived in the second age. Does MERPS have any named characters that ruled the northmen at this time? Let me know if you know of anything. Moran half valar (talk) 05:01, June 22, 2020 (UTC)

No, sorry, I do not. By definition, the Beornings only originated in the late Third Age, after Beorn their founder united them. Certainly, there must have been Men residing in the Upper Anduin Vales/Misty Mountain Vales in the Second Age, and also there may very well have been Men before Beorn who had the skin-changer ability - perhaps some of his ancestors. But records of the Second Age concerning Rhovanion are scarce or non-existent, and I know of none. You are free to create your own history(ies)!
