Middle-earth article[edit]

Hi there. I notice that you are using HTML tagging to mark and hide unsourced stuff in the Middle-earth article. I'm currently surrounded by a mini-library of books about Tolkien (the ones I put in the References section), and am starting to add pages reference citations to the material you are commenting on. It would help me though if you either moved the material to the talk page, or marked it with the {{fact}} template. That way it is easier to see what is happening without having to view the editable version. Thanks.

No problem, give me a moment to pull the changes. I've since noticed that the speculation (based on a single citation of one of Tolkien's letters) is a bit more widespread. So planning to merge all the information to a single article, so that it can be discussed
Ok, all removed. Any suggestions for an article name?

Middle-earth stuff again[edit]

Ok, I've collated the Middle-Earth -> Earth speculation. Most of it is just a reference to Letters #211, and #294, with attempts to overlay M-E over Europe/Eurasia. I'm beginning to wonder if all of this deserves its own article. Most of it can be merged together into a single paragraph, for adding to Middle-earth and/or Arda. What do you think? - Jc37 22:14, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

I think a section of a few paragraphs in the Middle-earth article would do fine. The title and section should probably try and cover the way Tolkien had the idea for his stories to be a mythology for England, the idea that he "translated" these stories from old records, and the various allusions he made in his letters to various bits matching up. All a bit of a random collections of stuff, but all hanging together on the "Middle-earth is our Earth and our history" idea. Maybe "Mythology for England" might be a suitable sectiont title? In fact, thinking on it, this probably does deserve its own article. For now, though, I would just suggest creating a section called "Mythology for England" or "Middle-earth as a mythology". Carcharoth 22:27, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
Ok. I've split the information between "Speculation on the fifth and later ages" and "Speculated geography comparisons to modern geography". Those are obviously NOT article titles, or even section titles, but they work for general sections for me to work with. Most of the geography info can be melded into a few sentences. The "later ages" information might qualify for it's own article. Even though it's partially fan speculation, it's cited in several ways. - Jc37 23:34, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
Where have you put this material? On a user page somewhere? Carcharoth 23:39, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
Saved as a file. Working on merging into cohesiveness. - Jc37 01:39, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
OK. No rush. I'll carry on on other bits of the article. Carcharoth 09:49, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Re: Submarine history[edit]

I would suggest either the Maritime warfare task force or the Ships WikiProject (or both) for these issues; I don't know if it'll be possible to get a fast response from either group, though. Kirill Lokshin 03:26, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestions. Carcharoth 10:28, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Humanism & Transhumanism[edit]

I've completed the basic lists on these, you might want to check them out.

A subject and list of special consideration to transhumanists, and to everyone in general, are: Life extension and List of life extension related topics.

Jewellery FAC[edit]

Hi. I've just popped round to let you know I've answered some of your queries on the article's FAC. I don't expect you to support yet, & I will be adding certain things to the article soon enough. Thanks for your comments. Spawn Man 23:49, 27 August 2006 (UTC). :)


The categorization system is having growing pains. There seem to be several different view about what our category system should be; a way to browse, an index of articles, a classification system, and/or a database search tool. Each of these views leads editors to different conclusions about how categories should be populated, and many conflicts result. To deal with these problems, Rick Block and I have been working on a proposal to add the ability to create category intersections. We think our proposal will address these problems and add some very useful new features. We are asking editors and developers concerned with categorizaton problems to take a look. We'd appreciate your feedback. Thanks. -- Samuel Wantman 06:25, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Tolkien infobox[edit]

Hey Carcharoth, I saw you add a Tolkien character infobox for your own. Mind if I tweak it around with a bit to implement the new syntax? I figured it would be easier to create a new character box as opposed to changing the syntax majorly, which would mess up the infoboxes in the character articles. —Mirlen 20:43, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Finished. Haven't tested it out yet, but come see! (The only thing that annoys me is how the text wraps around the infobox...) —Mirlen 02:11, 4 September 2006 (UTC)
For the text wrapping issue, I was talking about the note on the template page — it has nothing to do with the box. But I refreshed the userboxes being tested. I was also thinking to get rid of the dates that are inserted after the first mention of the character's name. —Mirlen 12:09, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

JPD's RfA[edit]

Thanks, Carcharoth, for your support at my RfA, which finished with a tally of 94/1/0. I hope I live up to the confidence you have shown in me in my activities as an administrator. JPD (talk) 16:17, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Numbers need citations[edit]

Per your request, I've copied the content of the talk page from this deleted article to a subpage at User:Carcharoth/Numbers need citations. NawlinWiki 11:54, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

I think it's probably a better idea to ask for a deletion review on this than for me to unilaterally restore it. Bobby Boulders/Dr Chatterjee has provoked some strong feelings among editors and admins that may not have been present in the June 2006 debate on the other article. Thanks, NawlinWiki 13:48, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Sidebar redesign final vote![edit]

It's that special, special time! No, grandma's not coming over. No, not time to clean out the fridge. It's sidebar redesign voting time! Yes, the community has narrowed it down to 3 different options, and a vote for the same old original sidebar is a choice one could vote for as well. Voting for multiple options is allowed, and discussion on the whole shebang is right there on the vote page itself.

You're probably getting this message because the sidebar fairy (JoeSmack for now) noticed you commented on the project at some time over on at Wikipedia talk:Village pump (proposals)/Sidebar redesign. Lovely. JoeSmack Talk 06:28, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Please vote[edit]

Hello, there. Please take the time to vote for the various candidates over at Core_biographies#Voting_booth. If you can, try to read a bit about the candidates you don't know about so you can get a better idea of how to vote. Thanks! ♠ SG →Talk 10:45, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Looks like I get to be the first to welcome you back from your wikibreak : ) Hope you enjoyed your time away. - jc37 19:54, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Soft category redirects[edit]

I took care of the problem. My Watch sub-pages (numbers 1-4) are actually categories that I've identified as needing attention. Because I am constantly watching recent canges for more such categories, it often takes me a long time to make the fixes. CG janitor 13:14, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
