Thanks for taking the time to update the Warbands pages, they are in definite need of an overhaul.

I did notice some of your screenshots have a number of issues such as:

  • Third person perspective with visible player character
  • UI elements visible
  • Labels and quest icons visible
  • Target is too dark

The help pages have a section on Technique to Capture an Image which explain how to fix these types of problems along with other useful advice.

Updated with the requirements observed.

I'm confused

On Talk: Bugud you state "this page needs deleting" -- but it's just a talk page. Either simply blank it, otherwise ignore it.
You can't delete a talk page independent of the primary page. i.e. there will always be a talk (discussion) page corresponding to the main page.
That said, did you mean to delete the main page Bugud?
  • There are two ways to request/do that.

1- put the Article Management Tags - {{Delete Page| some reason}} on the page, which will generate the banner:

This tag marks an article with the banner above and adds it to Category:Articles for deletion where an Administrator can act on the request to delete the article.
* or *

2- in the upper right corner of the page to the right of the star next to view history is a small triangle. Mouse over it and it becomes a drop-down menu with 3 options:

  • Delete - requires "Administrator" rank.
  • Move - you can do this with rank "Ninja!"
  • Protect - requires "Editor" rank.


Thanks for clarifying some of what is / was my actual confusion.

The page in question was the original holder of the first picture I uploaded for Bugud, which I have since updated with a new far superior picture, entitled Bugud1.jpg.

On a Lotro Wiki search I put in 'Bugud' as the search parameter and it led directly to that page and not the main Bugud page, which is why I announced I could not delete that Talk page, in the hope someone else would, as it's empty, redundant and is filtering searches to Bugud to an empty page.

I am not requesting the main Bugud Warmaster page be deleted at all, just the redundant empty Talk Page mentioned to stop the search filtering problem I myself encountered.

I am new to the pros, cons and etiquette of Wiki's, this or any others, and also my account limitations on what I can and can't do, so any help guiding me towards understanding is most appreciated.

Thanks. Luthian.

ps. I just saw Snarpel updated the Bugud Talk Page so there is no need to request a deletion of that page as it holds good information.

FYI - I just did some editing to your travel section for Derndingle, and added another route -- basically wikifing a bunch of the references to the Phased aspects of the maps. You can also get there from the Broadacres and Eaves of Fangorn, but they are easy to do, but hard to describe. :) They are easier to discover by LEAVING Derndingle rather than trying to find your way in if you have been there before.

Read over what I wrote and see if it makes sense to someone else - :)
