You have to read this

Hy there, it has been a while. My vacations are over and I returned to my edits at the Fantasy Lex. I found this site by pure chance and IMHO you have to read it [1].

The description about you is accurate and funny: The Grand High Marshall of Punishment himself, Inquisitor S., is the most notorious admin on the english Lexicanum. He is equally reviled and feared for his zealous crusade against any users who dare to break the law. Years of bitter warfare with marauding bands of spammers, trolls, and those who are too stupid to actually read the guidelines, have turned his heart into stone. His patience is short and he shoots first and does not ask questions later.

I am aware of that. And I did not write it myself ;) --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 10:50, 13 January 2012 (CET)
I did. The text before that did not match reality by far. --DetlefK 12:07, 13 January 2012 (CET)
Anyone looked at where the trolling link at the bottom of the page directs to? Hint: Its a good one!--Ytokes 22:40, 13 January 2012 (CET)

Possible Addition to Help Project

Hello. I found this page which you may wish to add to Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum:Help (I can't, I assume because I don't have high enough permission to edit a project page). Thanks. KazilDarkeye (talk) 17:37, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Thank you, I will make a note of it. As it was not categorized in the Help section I was completely unaware of its existence. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 03:12, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

Hey, so you deleted some of the enemies i put in there, just wanted to let you know that I put them back plus added some more. I will add in the remaining things. (talk) 2:44, 29 November 2022 (UTC)

That was not an intentional deletion but an apparent result of you and me editting at the same time. I only added a plural "s" to "tier" (-> tiers). Cheers. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 08:00, 30 November 2022 (UTC)
Want to make the page more better, since the new DLC for the game is coming out soon? I mean, if you want. But I’m more comfortable knowing some people want to expand the page to include more. (talk) 12:55, 02 December 2022 (UTC)
Sorry, I did not understand that question. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 21:36, 4 December 2022 (UTC)

Just trying to respond to your comment; I'm not sure how the wiki works so I didn't trust an edit of your comment on my talk page to be communicated to you. I had no idea it was intentional, I figured it was a typo. FYI, "<=" means less than or equal to - "<\=" isn't a standard symbol. I did my best to implement your intent of conveying to the reader that the release date is unknown but no later than September 1989; please take a look and see if you like it or not. Quindraco (talk) 13:41, 31 January 2023 (UTC)

Normally I get a notification if sth happens on a page I have been writing on before. But if in doubt...I wasn't happy with my symbol anyway, so your proposed solution looks good, didn't know that one before, thanks! --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 07:55, 1 February 2023 (UTC)

Best Codices list i have ever seen.....

With such an accurate listing of codex books, any chance Lexicanum could list the ISBN on the back of them so collectors like me can seek out the books through online sources? Just asking...

1.) Please sign (user) talk page contributions by typing --~~~~ which will be automatically transformed into a time-stamped signature, thanks.
2.) Codex (and other publication) articles do have an ISBN-field (see for example here and in the template for Codices. Obviously this info might be missing from some articles for whatever reasons but generally speaking there is an option and convention in place to include it. If you find it missing from a specific article I would suggest mentioning this on the article's talk page so maybe somebody who has the info can add it.
Regards. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 09:50, 14 February 2023 (UTC)

Lexicanum Français

  • Hello Inquisitor S.

Sorry for my English. I allow myself to come to you because for some time now we have no longer had SysOps on the French Lexicanum. I don't know if it's temporary or permanent. This is not really disturbing for us because not many of us contribute. I also took the initiative to control the additions. Like for example checking the categories. But I think the SysOps have access to options that we don't. Like for example renaming an article or deleting it. So is it possible to have a SysOps that could come and take a look from time to time? Do you come regularly to the French Lexicanum? Or should we appoint a new French SysOps? Cordially,

  • Bonjour Inquisitor S.

Je me permets de venir vers toi car depuis quelques temps nous n’avons plus de SysOps sur le Lexicanum Français. Je ne sais pas si c’est une absence provisoire ou définitif. Cela n’est pas vraiment dérangeant pour nous car nous ne sommes pas nombreux à contribuer. J’ai pris aussi l’initiative de contrôler les ajouts. Comme par exemple vérifier les catégories. Mais je pense que les SysOps ont accès à des options que nous n’avons pas. Comme par exemple renommer un article ou le supprimer. Est-il donc possible d’avoir un SysOps qui pourrait venir jeter un œil de temps en temps ? Viens-tu régulièrement sur le Lexicanum Français ? Ou bien faut-il nommer un nouveau SysOps Français ? Cordialement,

Si possible: Contacte-moi sur le Discord, plus facile et rapide de discuter là... Merci! --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 19:56, 13 March 2023 (UTC)


Hi, thank you for a warm welcome, if I may ask some questions:

  1. Where should I ask questions? Is it fine if I ping you about any doubts, or I should direct them elsewhere?
  2. Do you have something like a WP:GA/WP:FA? I would like to find an exemplary novel, but it seems impossible?
  3. Is there something like an article about a too little thing in 40k to be added to Lexicanum? Do you have any criteria of notability?

JareelSkaj (talk) 17:14, 1 May 2023 (UTC)

1.) You can ask about any doubts and they will be answered if possible and when possible. Best and probably quickest way to do so would be channel #40K-en or #helpdesk on our Discord. But you can also ask on a suitable (user) talk page in the wiki itself.
2.) Unfortunately we do not have an exemplary article, only a very rudimentary Help section. So best start there and ask where there is room for doubt. The most important section being the one on citations/ sources.
3.) No, contrary to Wikipedia and other wikis we explicitly do not have a notability criterium. Everything that has a legitimate source is fair game. Although sometimes it does make sense to try to use "collective" articles if we are talking about many small but related things.

Is anyone else having issues with getting Recaptcha to work recently? Usually I just keep clicking on the objects it wants me too without any success. The only time I have any luck getting through is when Recaptcha displays nine separate pictures at once. Dram (talk) 15:32, 15 July 2023 (UTC)

I wasn't even aware we HAD recaptchas beyond the registration process? --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 16:47, 16 July 2023 (UTC)
Yeah, I have to do a Recaptcha every time I include a link to a website within an article. Dram (talk) 16:56, 16 July 2023 (UTC)
Anybody else has this? --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 03:43, 17 July 2023 (UTC)
captcha are systematically required anytime you add internet links in an article. They have been for years AFAIAC --Siegfriedfr (talk) 10:27, 17 July 2023 (UTC)
Ok. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 11:59, 17 July 2023 (UTC)
Very weird, I don't have this at all. Maybe because I have some admin powers? Harriticus (talk) 15:10, 17 July 2023 (UTC)
This is a test. EDIT: I also dont get recaptchas. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 15:37, 17 July 2023 (UTC)
Me too.--Darkelf77 (talk) 16:01, 17 July 2023 (UTC)
Definitely an admin superpower, now you have a glimpse of our pain --Siegfriedfr (talk) 19:31, 17 July 2023 (UTC)
Not really, as we actually can't see the problem for ourselves. I suggest you document it with screenshots etc. and once that is done I forward it to BoLS. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 04:52, 18 July 2023 (UTC)
imgur.com/xtpn81c, imgur.com/gXiuJR1, imgur.com/tRazrj3, imgur.com/b4ntWOc. Are these good enough? I can't post direct links, since I still can't get Recaptcha to work. Dram (talk) 05:56, 18 July 2023 (UTC)

Can you take some pics of how it looks like when its goes wrong/ doesn't work? --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 08:11, 18 July 2023 (UTC)

When I get the Recaptcha wrong, it just shows me another picture and asks me to try again in red letters. imgur.com/tRazrj3 and imgur.com/b4ntWOc show this at the bottom of their screens. Dram (talk) 14:05, 18 July 2023 (UTC)

Well one solution for at least Dram would be to promote him given how much he contributes it’s overdue. Of course long term we do need a solution to this Harriticus (talk)

I have forwarded the issue to BoLS. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 04:24, 19 July 2023 (UTC)
Thanks Dram (talk) 04:29, 19 July 2023 (UTC)


Thank you for the welcome message and for the account. Put me in coach! -Kate Aces Darkangelsymbol.png Take her for a spin! 22:08, 25 August 2023 (UTC)

Partner up!

Heyo, I was just wondering how the Independent Fallout Wiki could go about partnering up with Lexicanum? We call it affiliating, same sort of thing as sister site vibe (our current list of partners is here)! I know the lads would be really, really excited to - please let me know and I appreciate you considering it! -Kate Aces Darkangelsymbol.png Take her for a spin! 07:59, 29 October 2023 (UTC)

Greetings. For all things of formal partnering etc. you would have to contact the legal owners and hosters of the Lexicanum sites, Bell of Lost Souls. So best to address your question/ message here: [email protected]. Cheers! --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 09:49, 29 October 2023 (UTC)
Alright, thanks so much! I will contact that email. Thanks again! -Kate Aces Darkangelsymbol.png Take her for a spin! 10:50, 5 November 2023 (UTC)
