As of this date, there were 34,707 articles on the FR Wiki, 15,150 files, and 98,035 total pages. My edit total was 41,824 according to the only number that still displays. —Moviesign (talk) 14:34, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

Question about article creation[]

Hello,

Are articles forced to have references in order to be on this wiki? Looking through the rules doesn't say anything, but I didn't know if there was a general "know-how" rule I was unaware of. I ask because I am trying to create an article on The Sewn Sisters, an important hag coven in ToA, but there is no real details on the internet about them.

I assume you have access to the book, in which case you'll want to use {{Cite book/Tomb of Annihilation}} as described in Forgotten Realms Wiki:Help-Citing sources. If you don't have access to the book, then there is little you can do. Anything on the internet might be copied from the book (violating copyright) or altered to fit someone's homebrew campaign, and there's no way to tell without the authoritative source. We do get articles without sources, or without complete sourcing, but they are branded with the nasty {{Fact}} template or the {{Nofootnotes}} one. If they don't get at least some referencing in some unspecified period of time, they are likely to be deleted because they can't be verified. Does that make sense? —Moviesign (talk) 00:36, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
Yes, that makes sense. I do have the book and that is where I was getting my information from. Thanks!

Crimmor Map with numbered references[]

On this image,

Crimmor?file=Crimmor-map.jpg

the map is numbered to identify landmarks and locations. Where can I find the corresponding reference to explain those numbered references? Is it a published work?

Anonymous users cannot see the File: page, but if you create a Fandom account, you can see that the map comes from Dragon #334. —Moviesign (talk) 16:09, 2 August 2021 (UTC)

Pinterest[]

sorry I'm not good at this stuff so hopefully this comment doesn't break everything. Pinterest has blocked this fandom, which means no one can pin from this website until someone has appealed it. It's likely an automated function but until someone appeals it nothing can be done. I don't know how that works as a collective but I hope it can be resolved easily.

Thanks for doing stuff and good luck.

Thanks for letting us know. Hopefully this can be resolved easily :) —Moviesign (talk) 17:21, 26 October 2021 (UTC)
