Overview of the Help system

The Help page is divided into four(4) sections.

General Reader Information
Editor: Article Creation "Templates"
Editor: Information
Editor: Boilerplates

Editor: Information

Pages in Category: Help Information contain general information of use to all Editors.
  • Help: FAQ: Frequently asked questions about participation in LOTRO-Wiki
  • Help: Introduction: An introduction to LOTRO-Wiki terminology


  • And always, refer to this for useful information.


A guideline is similar to a set of rules and standards. The main difference is that a guideline does not need to be followed to the letter and does not have any serious consequences in such cases. Here on LOTRO-Wiki, all content that has a guideline as reference should be edited until it meets those definitions, but exceptions can be made with valid reasons.
  • Pages in Category: Guidelines contain "rules" or "recommendations" for working with a certain topic or domain in the wiki.




Editor: Templates

  • Note that every Template should have a corresponding entry in Category:Template Documentation -- Template: <name>/doc
  • Note that Templates used in article creation should have a corresponding entry in Category: Template Preloads -- Template: <name>/Preload
  • Boilerplates should transclude the corresponding Template <name>/doc file and normally, a Template <name>/Preload file.
Boilerplates easily becomes out of sync with Templates and their /doc and /Preload files
  • NOTE: Somebody needs to write-up HOW TO USE -- "Template:Sandbox" and "Template Sandbox"



Editor: Article Creation "Templates"



Editor: Boilerplates

  • Most pages here will have a corresponding entry in Category:Article Creation.
  • Boilerplates should transclude the corresponding Template <name>/doc file and normally, a Template <name>/Preload file.
