Welcome to The Lord of the Rings! We hope you can make continuing contributions of articles and/or discussion.
I see you have already added a "Babel" template to your user-page so that others know which languages you are comfortable reading. (No template for Sindarin or Rohirric yet, but anyone "half-competent" can create them if keen.)
Do keep an eye on the "recent changes" page, where all edits and their authors (anonymous or signed-in) are listed. Bookmark it, maybe. (And please help delete spam - unpleasant but a fact of life.)
If you live in New Zealand ("Middle-earth"), you're invited to add your name to Category:New Zealanders contributing to this site by adding that to your User page (with double square brackets and no initial colon); but if your good fortune lies elsewhere, you can create a corresponding category for your country.
Discussion of any aspect of the site, and enquiries, can be made at Talk:Main_Page or on the "discussion" page associated with each article. If you sign and date your contributions on any talk page, readers know "who to talk to". If you edit a user's talk page, that user will get an alerting message on next visit.
(It would help some of us to know how you discovered this site.)
When copying from Wikipedia, please add the proper acknowledgment template:enWP - it takes only a few seconds, and it has the value of a built-in link to the latest version of the Wikipedia page so's we can occasionally easily check to see if there are improvements.
