WIKI communications

Just a couple of quick comments.

  1. Talk pages of individual users can be used to exchange comments with a particular person.
  2. Discussion pages of individual pages (quests, items, etc.) can be used to discuss aspects of that particular page.
  3. in the Left margin is "Recent discussions" with links to a generated list of recent postings to these various "talk" or "discussion" pages.
  4. Also in the Left margin is "Recent changes" which shows pages which have been most recently modified.

Hope this information helps.

There is no "active" chat channel. An ICQ channel does exist, but it has not been used by anyone on any kind of regular basis for quite some time.
See Lotro-Wiki Contributors' Corner for details

ICQ is the original name of IRC. If you don't know what those terms mean, then what do YOU mean by "Active Chat Channel?"

IRC = Internet Relay Chat -- is what MSN and Steam (and the chat channels in LOTRO) were copied from.
F*a*cebook's Messenger is the same, as are any number of other similar "Services."
Mumble, is simply a real-time voice chat (also like Skype, Team Speak, etc.)
All of these "Services" are based on the same simple fact -- everybody has to be using the same "Server" at the same time.
  • The closest that the WIKI authors get to this is using IRC, but the simple fact is, very few people use such things anymore simply because they require that every participant be on-line at the same time. This is problematic for folks in different time-zones, such as Europe and say, the West Coast (California) of North America.
It is compounded on the WIKI by the fact that the number of authors has declined along with the size of the Player-base of LOTO.
Joining IRC is basically simple -- you need a program to access it. Chatzilla is one such program. It is a plug-in for Firefox. There are many others. Colloquy is one such for the Mac.

Just search for IRC or ChatZilla and read some of the links -- especially those at the WIKIpedia's.

oops 08:15 EDT -- have to run. Later. Wm Magill - Valamar - OTG/OTC - talk 12:16, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Token of Valour‎

Thank you for your work in Item:Token of Valour‎, thanks and, keep it up :). I made a edit for the design of the lists. As I can remember, you will get the Token of Valour for nearly every quest in the PVMP Areas. Barny (talk) 18:37, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Please always in the user talk page User talk:Barny and not in the user page User:Barny.If you want to add all Quests, maybe you should use a Style like Item:Anfalas Scroll of Empowerment (Barter Information). Here you also see for the horizontal space the "width" of the column is defined. For the vertical space you have to split the tables and can do it with the enter key or you use "<br>".
