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.

Example:

new text{{C|1}}

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

Example:

==Sources==

*{{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:

Example:

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

*{{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.

Example:

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

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

Please first test this function in the Lexicanum:Immaterium.


Daemon Prince changes

Source has to be precised more. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 09:47, 24 August 2011 (CEST)

Grizgutz

Pagenumber of source missing, footnote number at source missing. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 09:48, 24 August 2011 (CEST)

Grog Ironteef

Pagenumber of source missing, footnote number at source missing. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 09:48, 24 August 2011 (CEST)

Tuska

Pagenumber of source missing, footnote number at source missing. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 09:48, 24 August 2011 (CEST)

General information

Please note that we will be forced to remove the articles completely if you can not provide exact sources. No offence, thanks. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 10:56, 24 August 2011 (CEST)

Image format

It would be greatly apreciated if you would use the format everybody else uses: jpeg. PNG is way too big. Thanks. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 09:47, 1 September 2011 (CEST)


Please do replace your older picture with the new format, too. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 08:20, 2 September 2011 (CEST)

Battle of Tyrok Fields

Good work on the article, although I think you have made an mistake with the sources. You have sourced with a 2 instead of a 1b i think. Could you please check. Good work otherwise all round on your edits everywhere.--Ytokes 08:21, 5 September 2011 (CEST)

Void Spinner

Addition of images also falls under these guidelines: 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.

Example:

new text{{C|1}}

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

Example:

==Sources==

*{{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:

Example:

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

*{{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.

Example:

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

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

Please first test this function in the Lexicanum:Immaterium.


Then, the image needs to be categorized! Also, ridiculous amount of white space. Microsoft Office can easily remove it. NTC3 11:46, 24 September 2011 (CEST)

Again.

You have started using internal links in the image summary, but please, add categories to your images, for Ruinous Powers' sake! NTC3 05:12, 2 October 2011 (CEST)

Issues

M'Kachan

Conflicting/ retconned official information like the Daemon prince thingy should be reprised in a "Notes" section instead of just completely removing it. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 21:18, 13 November 2011 (CET)

Sourcing request.

Can you please help with clarifying the sources in the Ork articles? Many of them use 3rd/4th Edition Codex as their source, but lack the page numbers. Any help will be appreciated. NTC3 03:00, 26 November 2011 (CET)

Sourcing request - Necrons/Dragon of Mars

Hi, I'm working on the Dragon of Mars/Void Dragon pages atm, and have been told Codex:Necrons 3rd edition, pg 11 contains info along the lines of -

  • "Interrogation of Tech-Adept Uvochi. - This article sees the introduction of the Void Dragon residing on Mars, specifically within the Noctis Labyrinth, an area visited by five Necron Shroud-class Light Cruisers. Although only one successfully landed on the soil of Mars, each ship survived alarmingly well, even against the greatest defences in the Imperium, until they were finally all vapourised."

If you have that codex would you be able to check if that info is correct? Cheers. Thelemur 01:38, 3 December 2011 (CET)

NVM - sorted! Thelemur 01:57, 3 December 2011 (CET)

Thanks very much mate, you are my hero :) Thelemur 02:16, 3 December 2011 (CET)

Weapons and stuff

As I just had a look at the nonstandard Dark Eldar weaponry: Articles like that are counterproductive. There should be one big article listing all equipment. The individual piece of equipment then is explained in its own article. Like it is now it's not good. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 20:22, 13 December 2011 (CET)

Cerebore

Hey, I saw that you made the articles for the Cerebore, Viciator and the Viragon. Nice work. I was mostly interested in whatyou have written for the Cerebore, I thought the only "information" on it was from the CCG cards, but I see you added it was in CA 2001, would you be able to quote that section/page/whatever, I'm fanatically interested in seeing what it says.

Source Request - Consecrators

Hi again, if you get a moment could you check the info on the Consecrators page? The talk page says-

"This seems a bit suspect...only a hundred marines left? There's no such info found in the sourced book.

  • Homeworld: Talon(after abandonment)
  • Speciality: Hunting the fallen
  • Battle Cry: For the lion
  • Estimated strength: 100"

the only given source on the page is Codex: Dark Angels (4th Edition), p. 75 Thanks. Thelemur 00:32, 3 January 2012 (CET)

You are a Demi-god sir! Thanks again. Thelemur 03:44, 3 January 2012 (CET)

Bolt pistol problem

You wrote: "The Bolt Pistol is a smaller handheld version of the venerable Bolter. Though it fires weaker bolt rounds from a smaller magazine then its larger cousin, the Bolt Pistol's small size and weaker recoil makes them popular sidearms among Space Marines and Imperial Guard Commissars. Assault Marines in particular favor the Bolt Pistol, frequently using them alongside the Chainsword.5: pg.97" --> the source however does not say anything about using weaker bolts. Please explain. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 21:48, 13 January 2012 (CET)

Heavy bolter problem

See here, I checked both sources given and neither said anything on the subject. Plus we know that there are even (admittedly big) Imperial soldiers who slugged HBs around. Plus the sisters of battle and SM Scouts who also do it. So again: please be always very, very careful with what you write. Stuff like that is just ammunition for our critics. Thanks. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 23:31, 13 January 2012 (CET)

Armoury Lists

Thanks for filling in all the blanks and adding new articles mate! Thelemur 03:44, 19 January 2012 (CET)

Again

When yoiu insert any (I really mean ANY) information into articles they need a footnote. That of course includes pictures. They need fotnotes. Inside of the article. Thanks. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 10:59, 22 January 2012 (CET)

Manticore Missile

I wanted to apologize, when I created the Manticore (Missile) article from the disambiguation page I didn't realize you had already done Manticore Missile. I was just going to have yours redirect to mine since it included more sources but I realized that would be rude and decided wanted to ask first which you would prefer.BeeWolf 23:02, 24 January 2012 (CET) Will do, thanks.

Kill Team Project

Hi, since it is frequently the case that a small group of users end up working on various pages/projects together - I thought it might be an idea to have a page where we can discuss our various ideas together in one place, rather than over lots of different talk pages. I set up a page here for us to do that. I dont know if this idea will take off, or if anyone will be interested, but I thought it was worth trying - let me know what you think. The Lemur 03:41, 20 March 2012 (CET)

Iron Warriors Images

On Honsou's page, there is an image of him with his Necrontyr arm; any idea where it came from?

Also, on the Warhammer 40,000 wiki page, there is an image of M'kar, apparently by the same artist. Are they from the same source, and do you have access to it?--Proteus77 02:46, 17 April 2012 (CEST)

The image of Honsou comes from the Iron Warrior (Novella), made by Neil Roberts. It and pictures of what I assume are Adaric Vaanes, Etolph Cycerin, and the Newborn are also available at his gallery SkinnyElbows. I know that Honsou and Grendel's images were included based on Black Library's site, but I don't know if Vaanes, the Newborn, and M'kar were included in the published version, not that such facts have ever stopped the 40K wikia. -- SFH 05:56, 17 April 2012 (CEST)
Is there an objection to uploading these images from SkinnyElbows and using them here?--Proteus77 07:21, 17 April 2012 (CEST)
As long as the novella citation is given I don't see why not. The M'kar one clearly isn't fanart if you compare it to the other pictures given in the source.--Harriticus 07:30, 17 April 2012 (CEST)

Image cats

Just fropping a line to say you forgot to add a cat to the File:IGVeteran.jpg. It seems like a lot of people are forgetting to at the moment. COuld you add one please?--Ytokes 08:02, 23 April 2012 (CEST)

Stormtalon banter

Thank you for your comments on the Stormtalon issue, much appreciated! I know Inq S's job is to be a bureaucrat - we need him to be stern to keep the whole project running, but I think certain other users dont seem to understand that the nature of a wiki is that we all work together for the (Tau quote) "Greater Good". Cheers. The Lemur 21:49, 31 May 2012 (CEST)

New way of sourcing

Since you seem to be creating a lot of new articles, could you abandon the old method of sourcing (<sup>1</sup>) and use the new one? (For the article text{{Fn|1}};for the source list{{Endn|1}})

Thank You--Ashendant 22:35, 30 June 2012 (CEST)

Uncategorized Images

Just noticed there are some images in the uncategorized images list which you uploaded. Could you skim through them and fix up your errors please. Also, you are not the only one i am reminding, noticing that quite a few of our regulars are forgetting about categories.-Ytokes 13:04, 12 August 2012 (CEST)

Power axe image

You can only replace a file with the same name if it is actually the same image just in a better quality. Don't overwrite different pictures. Also this picture is missing a source. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 12:28, 17 August 2012 (CEST)

Vorsch

Look.--Lexstealer, Magus 18:32, 8 September 2012 (CEST)

CSM (6th) Quotes

Could you add the quotes from Ahriman, Lucius, etc., that appear over their biographies in the new Codex?--Proteus77 06:51, 14 November 2012 (CET)

Blood Angels Codex citations

Someone wrote a series of articles sourced to Codex: Blood Angels; he included page citations, but failed to say which edition codex it was. Could you please check?--Proteus77 02:22, 29 November 2012 (CET)

Great work - could you please do the same for Furion and Black Crusade of Furion, linked to Codex: Dark Angels?--Proteus77 21:00, 29 November 2012 (CET)
And these? C'tan, Old Ones, Slann, C'tan phase weapon, Necron Lord, Tomb World, Destroyer Lord, Notable Cadian Trooper Regiments,

Notable Cadian Armoured Regiments, Aza'gorod, Mephet'ran, linked to Codex: Necrons--Proteus77 22:18, 29 November 2012 (CET) Codices (List) ‎ (← links)

Imperial Fists

Nice work on the Imperial Fist page. Best, --augustmanifesto 16:56, 4 December 2012 (CET)

RPG Info

So I'm currently compiling a list of all information in the RPG that I have, if you want you can ask me for anything in User:Ashendant/Sources and I'll provide a direct citation of it.--Ashendant 02:41, 27 December 2012 (CET)

Image Uploads

Please check your categories when you upload images - make sure the links are good.--Proteus77 18:30, 22 February 2013 (CET)

Space Fleet

I believe they're from WD 139 to 147, which had the expanded Space Fleet rules in it. I've been debating how best to include them in the full lists, but in the end just went for adding in images of the ones that don't share a name with a BFG version for now. Agree that a proper article on each would be good, though I'd be tempted to add them as 'previous editions' on the appropriate pages for ones that have a later version such as the Emperor and the Gothic etc. Phunting 00:36, 26 February 2013 (CET)

Tau Codex Sourcing

Some of the sources listed in your recent edits of several pages are clearly wrong. For the Poctroon, Codex: Tau Empire (6th Edition), page 49, is given as source yet that page of the Codex is dedicated to the entry of the Razorshark Fighter... For Mu'galath Bay, the source mentionning a reactor meltdown is listed as page 53, yet it's the page for the entry about Kroots... Please correct this! Nash 15:59, 14 April 2013 (CEST)

I used the ipad e-book version of the codex. I don't have the standard version unfortunately. --Harriticus 17:18, 14 April 2013 (CEST)
... Right, i'm not a admin but please don't answer questions in different talk pages...
I don't know how to deal with this problem in this case. So i'll ask for help.--Ashendant 22:43, 14 April 2013 (CEST)
Well, I'm not sure how we're supposed to deal with the situation of a single source on multiple support, so I'll let the "Powers-that-Be" solve this issue.
However, I checked my "dead-tree" version of the Codex: Tau Empire (6th Edition) and the actual pages are pg.28 for the info on the Poctroon and pg.29 for Mu'galath Bay, so you've got them if you need them.
And if any other event was referenced with the iPad page numbers, and they eventually need to be corrected too, feel free to contact me on my talk page, I'll look up the actual paper version page numbers ASAP. Nash 15:36, 15 April 2013 (CEST)
If that Ipad-version is an offcial version, it is valid. Just add in the sources which "medium" the pagenumber refers to. And ideally list both "digital" and "paper" pagenumbers where possible. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 12:51, 16 April 2013 (CEST)
Hi. Your pages 13-15 reference from the Imperial Armour Volume Four - The Anphelion Project in the Magos Biologis article were also off, I'm guessing for a similar reason. Let me know what section it was from and I'll put in the proper references, but I'm afraid I don't have the strength to wade through the large amount of text in the book to try and find the reference alone!Phunting 01:19, 8 August 2013 (CEST)

The Dark Eldar

Hi, just wanted to thank you for all the work on with the new articles on the DE-codex and especially the Coven-supplement! Really nice. --Mngwa 05:56, 20 October 2014 (MDT)
