Quick explanation of Wikipedia outlines edit

"Outline" is short for "hierarchical outline". There are two types of outlines: sentence outlines (like those you made in school to plan a paper), and topic outlines (like the topical synopses that professors hand out at the beginning of a college course). Outlines on Wikipedia are primarily topic outlines that serve 2 main purposes: they provide taxonomical classification of subjects showing what topics belong to a subject and how they are related to each other (via their placement in the tree structure), and as subject-based tables of contents linked to topics in the encyclopedia. The hierarchy is maintained through the use of heading levels and indented bullets. See Wikipedia:Outlines for a more in-depth explanation. The Transhumanist 23:57, 8 August 2015 (UTC)Reply

Non-ME publications edit

@Chiswick Chap: I see that you added a number of publications last year. Do The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún, The Fall of Arthur or The Story of Kullervo really belong on a Middle-earth outline? Even Tales from the Perilous Realm can only be justified as including a reprint of The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, and I have just inserted the original in its correct place. -- Verbarson  talkedits 12:59, 17 May 2022 (UTC)Reply

Audiobooks edit

...are missing from the outline. I have no WP:RS, only publishers' and vendors' websites and fan sites. I would guess that Hammond & Scull have listed them somewhere? -- Verbarson  talkedits 20:11, 18 June 2022 (UTC)Reply

I have added listings for those recordings mentioned in articles. No audiobooks have their own article, and I have been uncertain how to link to the relevant part(s) of an article about a reader or publisher that mentions the audiobook.
Martin Shaw has apparently recorded The Hobbit and (uniquely?) The Silmarillion. However, there are no dates or un/abridgement details so I have not included these. -- Verbarson  talkedits 21:13, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply
