Redirecting to a seperate passage in an article is impossible here, so just link to the article name.--Genestealer, Magus 22:00, 8 January 2009 (CET)

Ah, fair enough. Sorry. --Phunting 22:04, 8 January 2009 (CET)

Hiya, I'm going round to collect feedback on whether we should establish a new forum for the Lexicanum Wiki. The current forum is in english apparently, but the buttons are all in German. So I propose that a new forum be set up to help perhaps start up a new Lexi community, or at the very least help pool resources and efforts together as a combined group to make collective decisions for the Lexi. Also this can be a place to store fan fiction, non canon materials, or debate about topical discussions over what is canon or not. There's no set plan, but as said, just going round to see what everyone else thinks.--Vindicta 15:26, 13 January 2009 (CET)


This article is missing its category and the sources are missing the pagenumbers. In addition some of the paragraphs are also missing footnotes. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 08:31, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

How to add sources

It is compulsory to add official sources for ANY change or addition of information!

The new text has to be marked with a footnote.


new text{{C|1}}

This footnote is then referenced under "Sources" at the end of the article:



*{{C|1}}: [[Codex XY]], p. xx

Please note that it is absolutely compulsory to include pagenumbers (in the case of novels chapter numbers)!

If you are referencing different pages/ chapters from the same source the source itself is marked with a number, the individual pages or chapters by letters:


new text{{C|1: p. xy}} ... new text{{C|1: p. yz}}

*{{C|1}}: [[Codex XY]]:

In the case of novels, no pagenumbers should be given (they vary between translations and print runs). In this case chapternumbers are compulsory.


new text{{C|1: ch. xy}} ... new text{{C|1: ch. yz}}

*{{C|1}}: [[XY (Novel)]]:

Please first test this function in the Lexicanum:Immaterium.

Actually yes, in a list each list item needs its footnote as do paragraphs in texts. In addition to that pagenumbers or chapternumbers of the sources are still missing. So please add that, thanks. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 15:42, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Imperial Navy Hierarchy

That is great work, that is what I was looking for. Thank you so much for the contribution. I look forward to working with you later on. -General Nikolas 21:57, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Deleted User-Page

What was in it before it was deleted? Normally we delete user-sites and user-discussion-sites only if the user-profiles are used as webspace for presenting own tabletop-armies/fluff/speculation. --DetlefK 13:07, 4 December 2011 (CET)


Please note that it is absolutely compulsory to always include pagenumbers in the sourcing, also for pictures. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 23:09, 4 March 2012 (CET)

Space Fleet Images

What's the source for your space fleet images? I'd like some info on them to make an actual article.--Harriticus 06:34, 25 February 2013 (CET)

Uploading Images

Please do not upload images without categorizing them.--Proteus77 17:51, 8 August 2013 (CEST)

Imperial Armada

Pg.23 of Forgeworld's Horus Heresy Book Four Conquest specifically calls army naval formations "the Imperial Armada". There are many more times it is mentioned throughout the book.--Harriticus (talk) 18:31, 20 August 2015 (MDT)

Strange Edits

Why have you been removing some important content and also "switching" images to files with the same image? Midnight Sun (talk) 08:18, 27 May 2017 (MDT)

Can you explain what you are talking about? Which edits remove important content? I integrated Primarch discovery order into the main table because it looks very ugly having the list stuck up at the top on its own. I uploaded a different version of the 'Praetorian of Dorn' book because the old version had a large white border on it. Phunting (talk) 10:03, 27 May 2017 (MDT)
Stop. [1] You do not take a standard file image and turn it into something else. If you want a different image then upload -that- under a new name. You are vandalizing the place instead of improving. This is inappropriate. Midnight Sun (talk) 10:55, 27 May 2017 (MDT)
And I know you know that file names are in use and have major implications when changed. And I know that you know that non-standardized file names would make them harder to use. So stop the vandalism. Midnight Sun (talk) 10:59, 27 May 2017 (MDT)
Oh for goodness sake! That image was originally the pre-release version. Look at the Praetorian of Dorn (Novel) page. It has two copies of the same picture! The top one is the released version and the bottom one was meant to be the unreleased version, but this was overwritten in Aug 16 with the released version. All I am doing was restoring the original so there were not two copies of the same picture on the same page!
And can you please ditch the attitude. Don't tell me what I know, don't accuse me of 'vandalism' and intending to cause 'confusion' just because we disagree how to display the same content, and don't claim I'm 'destroying' a page just because I prefer to have the information in the main table and you, for no reason you've explained, want a separate list!Phunting (talk) 11:07, 27 May 2017 (MDT)
Stop trolling now. I originally created the "actual" file because there was a dispute on how to deal with changing pictures, and that dispute was resolved to establish the used picture as the main file. Can you please stop vandalizing? You are going out of your way to make everything as incoherent as possible without reason. PS, it is extremely obvious why a discovery order should go in a discovery section. Midnight Sun (talk) 11:09, 27 May 2017 (MDT)
If you honestly wanted to "fix" the problem, you would have done this [2]. Midnight Sun (talk) 11:13, 27 May 2017 (MDT)
OK fine. I'm perfectly happy with using that! All I was trying to do was have it so there wasn't two copies of the same picture on the novel page! I really don't care how that effect is achieved. Please assume good faith, and don't start flinging about accusations of trolling, trying to create incoherence, and vandalism.Phunting (talk) 11:18, 27 May 2017 (MDT)
When you start cutting and chopping randomly, there isn't good faith. Good faith requires you to assume that the original work was written in good faith. You have to find solutions, which often require additions. You can't demand it without giving it. You could have asked myself or Harriticus why there were two different files like that and what the naming meant. You could have also looked at the list of file names and see a standard pattern. Midnight Sun (talk) 11:22, 27 May 2017 (MDT)
And you could have asked me what I was trying to do before laying in with accusations! I saw an article that was linking to a piece of art that had been modified from its original form, and was incorrect. So I tried to restore it to its original form and ensure any links meant to go to the updated version used another appropriate image instead. I don't think that was unreasonable logic, and I don't see the need to be so aggressive about it.Phunting (talk) 11:29, 27 May 2017 (MDT)
Not how it works. You cannot start radically changing and removing things then get huffy because you never bothered to ask what was going on. You were extremely aggressive and not assume any good faith, and the changes you made did nothing to help anything. There are plenty of needs, such as putting out summaries, but you decided to focus mostly on rearranging things in a haphazard manner. Midnight Sun (talk) 13:02, 27 May 2017 (MDT)
Look, I'm not continuing this mate. How have I possibly been 'extremely aggressive'? You have been going around slinging accusations over everything! Sure, I get that I didn't edit things according to your own personal idea of how everything should be done. Live with it. You seem to have a track record of bombarding accusations on anyone who edits in a way you don't agree with. Chill out. We have few enough editors in this community, this kind of attitude does nothing but drive people away.Phunting (talk) 14:48, 27 May 2017 (MDT)
