WayBackMachine

About your last articles... Old archives full of treasures, yes? ;)--Darkelf77 (talk) 14:25, 23 January 2016 (MST)

Yeah, but its too bad the only way to read them is through the waybackmachine

  • I agree. And also a lot of materials from the GW-cite through 2009-2013 years - lost, because of some "cookies system" (at least I don't know how to beat it). Even the WayBack can't help. Pity :( --Darkelf77 (talk) 14:42, 23 January 2016 (MST)

Battle Reports

I haven't seen the articles in question, but citing White Dwarf Battle Reports to create pages like Deathtoll seems off. Games Workshop has naming conventions and that name does not fit, and the Battle Reports are normally just playful accounts of battles between players with no canonical basis. Midnight Sun (talk) 18:10, 11 March 2016 (MST)

I'm not sure I understand. Are you saying you don't personally consider the White Dwarf Battle Reports to be Canon and they shouldn't be included in the Lexicanum? Or you don't think the name Deathtoll feels like it would belong to a member of the Thousand Sons? --Dram (talk) 09:23, 12 March 2016 (MST)

It feels like the name suggests that it was a user battle report and not something official. Midnight Sun (talk) 21:36, 12 March 2016 (MST)

It was a Battle Report between Adam Troke's Dark Angels and Andy Keddie's Chaos forces. I think both of them are currently working for Games Workshop--Dram (talk) 22:02, 12 March 2016 (MST)

Battle reports or personal armies from GW employees aren't canon, and so are characters or results from them. We collect those informations though, but they should have a special template to mark them as such (yeah I know, the template doesn't exist; should have been on our to-do list).--Gene, Magus (talk) 20:00, 14 August 2017 (MDT)

Excavating of Treasures

Wonderful finding and work with a 'Vigos'. You are a great explorer. I'm very appreciated :) And yes, I believe (just like you) - it is also a canon background.--Darkelf77 (talk) 02:03, 29 June 2016 (MDT)

Black Legion

Just as a request, can you please add the events of Black Legion (Novel) to the Sigismund and 1st Black Crusade articles where they appear? I havent' finished the book yet and won't for quite some time due to my schedule. You already seem to have finished it. Thanks! --Harriticus (talk) 13:47, 21 August 2017 (MDT)

Sure--Dram (talk) 09:17, 22 August 2017 (MDT)

Black Legion

Nice additions you made on Sigismund's Fate part. As soon as finished Black Legion (Novel) , I went on the Sigismund page and saw nobody added what we learned in the novel. So I started to modify it. But, you added a lot more of what I had planned and did better (I'm not a native english speaker). Thanks! --KuBi4K (talk) 19:34, 28 August 2017

--Dram (talk) 09:59, 29 August 2017 (MDT) No problem

Diocletian Exemplar

I figured the character of Diocletian Exemplar was actually Diocletian Coros. He's featured in the same book IRL that he wrote in-universe as a bit of an easter egg, and it's clear that Diocletian became big later on in the Custodes. "Exemplar" being a kind of honorific as opposed to one of his names. Maybe I'm wrong though.--Harriticus (talk) 22:46, 22 October 2017 (MDT)

You're probably right. I'll redirect the page.--Dram (talk) 22:49, 22 October 2017 (MDT)
