Again, check your sources. At least one part of this article is completely wrong! --Mithraea 08:45, 9 February 2008 (GMT)

As Divine head of the Chroniclers, shouldn't You be making such changes Yourself? Obviously, there can be no better source for such information than Yours truly, especially on articles such as this one. (As You can see on the Ba'relo page, no mortal has touched it since You claimed it contained incorrect info.) We write articles with the expectation that the Divine will step forth and correct what mortal minds have misinterpreted, and we expect Their contributions in either making direct changes or educating us why exactly we are wrong; no doubt You have noticed this happened in the past with much, -much-, MUCH frequency... now we'd be lucky to see it happen once every odd Achaean year. In addition to the many, many pages out there that are probably at least semi-incorrect (of which the Divine would probably be better aware of than we), there are the pages that we know need confirmation from the Divine, and one such example is the sun article. For over a decade, the discussion on what is acceptable information and what isn't has been left unanswered by the Divine, and frankly, it's worrisome. The Archives are first and foremost a Divinely supervised project - they have always been; why then has the contributions of the Gods to Lore only trickled progressively into near-nothingness since the project's birth? --Krypton 13:38, 9 February 2008 (GMT)

You essentially answered this yourself, Krypton! It is a divinely-supervised project, not a divinely-run project. We oversee and comment when asked to or when we notice something awry. In both this case and with Ba'relo I happen to know a lot about them so I've edited things or suggested you research and edit it yourself. If you cannot find out the information via in-character means or without us having to clarify/explain things, it probably should not be on here in the first place, as it would be neither easily publicly accessible or, and perhaps most importantly, official lore. I hope that clarifies things for you. --Mithraea 04:33, 10 February 2008 (GMT)

It does indeed, thank You very much. I obviously wasn't here in the early stages of the project, so all I could do was observe that Divine contributions and discussions were extremely common back then, but not the reasoning behind what happened then and what happens now. As for the Ba'relo and Marisol pages, I attempt them only because Lore policy seems to dictate that no denizen is exempt from having a page (unless perhaps a specific request is made; has such a thing occurred?), though Order-/House-specifics and other such limited info can and will be excluded. (I also attempt them thanks to the immortalisation of their names through the Events posts, so the existence of these denizens is at least known to the educated populace.) Is a change in order for the apparent policy? It shouldn't be too surprising that our contributions can start becoming erroneous when we try to tread onto ground covered by the information not everyone is supposed to know, despite such denizens still deserving a page of their own. --Krypton 05:22, 10 February 2008 (GMT)
