Haeremai, talofa, Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome
Welcome to The Lord of the Rings! We hope you can make continuing contributions of articles and/or discussion. Please consider adding a "Babel" template and a Lore template (if you have not already done so) to your user-page so that others know which languages you are comfortable reading and what your current knowledge of Lord of the Rings is.
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 help delete spam - unpleasant but a fact of life.)
See the community portal for some projects and things to do at this wiki. You can add at category to your user page to find people from the same country. For instance, if you live in New Zealand ("Middle-earth"), you can add your name to Category:New Zealanders contributing to this site by adding that to your User page (in double square brackets). See the other categories in Category:Contributors for other countries or create your own category.
Discussion of any aspect of the site, and enquiries, can be made at Talk:Main_Page, or on the free mailing list, or on the "discussion" page associated with each article. Sign and date your contributions there with four tildes ~~~~, so that 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.)
Enjoy! Razor77 15:05, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
