  • Hello is it possible to start a fan site about this game? And also use some graphic elements or fonts from this site to use in our own design to make ours look like the game is advertised? Which is normal for a fan site right? Also to make some money on the side?

      Naturally anyone can start a website on the internet about any topic they like.

When creating your own website, it is your own responsibility to learn and abide to both American copyright law, as well as copyright laws of your own country.

    • If I give credit to all those involved with what I use, is it then not alright? Say I use an icon in my logo that is used in the shadow of mordor game but I mentioned that, is it then okay?

      You work for them right?

    • I do not work for Monolith or Warner Bros., I work for Wikia, the company hosting this and other wikis. I can only speak about our policies, which you can find here.

  • Hey Mark I wanted to ask where I would post walkthroughs of middle earth shadow of mordor I have a Pvr and once it comes out I'd like I'd like to do walkthroughs but where would I post them?

    • For now, it's probably best to put them as a sub-page of your user page (User:MxA WOlf/Walkthroughs). We can always see about reconsidering that later.

  • Dear Mark, I wanted to make a proposal to bring the Wraith in the template Mainpage Box Characters.

    I mean, the Wraith is a separate character who has taken a place inside Talion's body, not Talion himself. His role in the game equally so important as Talion's, or a at least, almost so important. He is either one of the two main protagonists alongside Talion, or at least the secondary protagonist.

    Gollum and Sméagol are slightly less two separate characters. Gollum was born in Sméagol by the One Ring's impact. The Wraith is someone who is died already, only he don't have can rest in peace yet.

    I understand if you first have to arrange his image for in the template. But do you will settle it, Mark?

    • Hello Tim,

      I've added the image to the characters section on the main page. We'll also see if we can get a higher quality image for the main page, as the current one is rather grainy and is a side shot of the wraith's face.

      Thank you for your suggestion, and keep up the good work!

    • Thank you, Mark. I am happy with that result. I will do my best for all the good work that I can offer here.

  • Hey Mark im sure that you're aware that every game is male-biased but hardly any games especially the most popular ones until recently have added the options to play a female char, whats your opinion on this? Cod, Gta, Lotr have used all male playable chars until the most recent releases and i see the SoM is following the sexist ways, and i'm quite annoyed with it tbqh......just thought id hear your opinion on this.

  • Dear Mark, I have take a little look to images on the internet for the game. I have found out that the images Talion in front of fortress.jpg, Dead Uruks.jpg, Character-Talion.png, Talion.png and Talion banner.jpg are mirrored here.

    I have fixed it. I could upload the fixed versions of Talion.png and Talion banner.jpg. Only I don't could upload the fixed versions of Talion in front of fortress.jpg, Dead Uruks.jpg and Character-Talion.png because that images are in the Home page, and that page is in protection. How we going to fix that?

    • Mark, are you here now? How we going to fix it with the last three images (Talion in front of fortress.jpg, Dead Uruks.jpg and Character-Talion.png)? I have by myself two potential ideas, but first I want to know whether you have by jourself an better idea.

    • Dear Mark, I'm sorry if I bother you with this subject. But I really need a little help from you with this, I am no administrator here, otherwise I would not just ask this to you.

      It's really true that the images that I have called are mirrored. These two images, Talion.png and Talion banner.jpg are no longer counted, because I have be able to upload the fixed versions of that images already. I have found hints that can confirm it.

      My first option is that you bring the protection of Home page to a lower level for a temporary time, until I have upload last three images (Talion in front of fortress.jpg, Dead Uruks.jpg and Character-Talion.png). If you have done that, tell it to me, and I will upload the last three fixed versions of the images so fast as I can. When I have finished the uploads, then I inform you immediately, and then you can bring the protection of Home page to the higher level again, and we are finished.

      P.S.

      If you read this now, then give me so soon as possible a comment, please. If you can't today, then try it tomorrow, after 16:00.

    • Hey Frank,

      I'm afraid I can't help you with this issue myself. The best thing to do would be to send a message to our Community Support team through Special:Contact. Try to include as many specifics as you can, and they'll look into the issue.

      Thanks, Mark

  • Tim Auke Kools wrote: I have accepted now the way that you have proposed about the Nemeses on this Wiki, Mark. Only, it still bothering me about Orcs and Uruks on this Wiki. In both the Middle-earth books, movies and all video games that I know, there are Uruks a stronger and larger race of Orcs, all the Uruks are Orcs, but not all the Orcs are Uruks. I want to ask you to talk with Monolith/Warner Bros., perhaps they will changed their mind. If they do not, it would be difficult for me in first, but then I could going to accept it. Thank you for now, Mark.

    Dear Mark, I have given you two days to think for an answer. You still have not answered. I know, our discussion about the Nemeses is finished. But we have not yet finished about Orcs and Uruks. Maybe we can continue this discussion further here.

    I start with this question: Do you can sent a e-mail to Monolith/Warner Bros., and tell them what I have told you about Orcs and Uruks?

      The Black Uruks were working for Sauron. You can read about them by clicking here.

    • The answer is not completely clear to me. I hope that WBIE will give later more clarity to what they will do with the information that you have to them. Until that time, it's maybe beter as we let rest this discussion.

  • Hey Mark,

    The legal info box in the right hand rail's text is difficult to read as it's a similar colour to the background. I'm not sure if this is intentional? But, if not adding this to the Special:CSS page should rectify it.

    .box-legalinfo .legal-text {
         color: #FFFFFF;
    }

  • Hey Mark you deleted the page I created for the Palanti artifact. Andy from Warner Bros asked me to create it and it is a real artifact. if you could undelete this page we would both appreciate it.

    • Unfortunately enough the page was a copyright violation, as it was a direct copy from another website (Wikipedia), which is something we no longer allow. If you'd like to create that page, you'll have to make sure it's original or sufficiently reworded content.
