Canon Conflict Black Templars Edit

Hey Montonius,

something I just now seem to notice: I saw you recently talking about canon conflict sections. I think the Black Templars need one, because they both seem to hate every psyker and tolerate Navigators and Astropaths as nessecary evil and on the other to revere psykers as gifts from the Emperor but don't have some themselves.

Black Templars / Psykers Edit

Hey Montonius,

these are the textparts I could find concerning psykers:

The Black Templars deviate from Codex-compliant Chapters, including the Imperial Fists, in one primary way. The Chapter's zealous hatred for mutants and inherent distrust of the Warp and anything related to it means that the Chapter possesses no Librarians. The Grey Knights, known for their incorruptibility and closeness to the Emperor, represent the only Imperial psykers that the Black Templars will take as allies. The Black Templar's extreme revulsion to fighting alongside any individuals tainted by the Empyrean would normally prevent them from being allied with anyone with such abilities. The Grey Knights are the exception as the Black Templars consider it an honour to fight alongside Astartes whose membership was originally chosen by the Emperor, who bear a portion of his direct genetic inheritance and have never once been corrupted by Chaos. This attitude can prove to be challenging for those Black Templars who are chosen to serve in the Deathwatch and must learn to fight alongside the Librarians of other Chapters as part of a Kill-team.

Parts of the Emperor's Champion vows, but I don't think these need to be replaced:

  • Abhor the Witch, Destroy the Witch - The Black Templars' hatred of the mutant and the Warp drives them into a rage in battle. Should their enemies' ranks include a psyker, they will rush to vanquish him with renewed effort. Their hatred enhances their will, making them highly resistant to psychic abilities.

The Black Templars' zealous hatred of mutants and the Warp prevents them from recruiting any man who bears genetic impurities, including the mutation that allows an individual to wield psychic abilities. This is why the Black Templars' order of battle contains no Librarians.

For this reason, only the most self-disciplined and open-minded of Black Templars are seconded to the Deathwatch; the strain on their minds to tolerate the myriad different expressions of a thousand divergent Chapter cults embodied by the new Battle-Brothers of the Long Watch will be enormous, and to be forced to live and fight alongside psykers, either the other Chapter's detached Librarians or the Ordo Xenos' psychically-gifted Inquisitors, will test the seconded Black Templar's faith and tolerance to their very limits.

Due to the fact that the Black Templars have such a hate and distrust for the Warp and anything within it or derived from it, Black Templars will not allow Librarians or any beings with psychic powers to fight amongst their ranks or in an alliance with them, except for the Grey Knights. Every Black Templar has a deep prejudice against any type of psyker, which can lead to trouble between the Chapter and those Imperial Adepta that often use Sanctioned Psykers, such as the Inquisition or even certain regiments of the Imperial Guard.

The Black Templars have been known to mercilessly wipe out entire planetary populations to expunge the sin of heresy, while the mere presence of a witch on the battlefield drives them into a zealous fury against which few enemies have any hope of standing. The Black Templars' professed loathing of the witch even extends to those psykers in the employ of the Imperium. Although the Chapter must utilise Astropaths, Navigators, and others with such Warp-spawned talents, the Black Templars are loath to do so, and eschew the use of Librarians in their ranks.

When serving alongside the Battle-Brothers of other Space Marine Chapters, many Black Templars prepare themselves through long fasts and week-long vigils in order to tolerate the presence of Space Marine Librarians. For those who serve a Long Vigil in the Deathwatch, fighting alongside a brother Space Marine who wields psychic power is a particular hardship, a trial they must undergo in order to serve the Emperor more fully and to strike down the hated alien. For this reason, great care is undertaken when selecting a Black Templar for secondment to the Deathwatch, for only a brother able to contain his deep-seated intolerance against psykers will be able to fight to his full capacity. Despite this, even these individuals are likely to pass every hour not spent fighting in deep contemplation and prayer, often cloistering themselves away from their fellow Deathwatch Brothers in a personal shrine to the Emperor, Rogal Dorn, and Sigismund.

Outsiders mistakenly interpret the lack of Librarians within the ranks of the Black Templars Chapter, and the fury with which its Battle-Brothers slay Chaos Sorcerers, as an intolerance for all psykers. This could hardly be further from the truth, for the Black Templars hold special reverence for Astropaths, seeing them as holy disciples who have actually communed with the God-Emperor. Navigators are similarly honoured, for their psychic blessing allows them to see the divine light of the Astronomican and guide the Black Templars through the Warp to deliver righteous retribution against the Emperor's enemies. Instead, the Black Templars' abhorrence is reserved for deviant alien witches and rogue psykers who embrace the blasphemous Dark Gods in their quest for power. These individuals threaten to drag entire worlds from the Emperor's light and into damnation, for they are conduits through which unholy daemons can cross into the mortal realm. So it is that the Black Templars strengthen their souls with the purity of their faith when facing rogue psykers, as they strive to end with a single sword-stroke the potential of a daemonic assault that could otherwise plunge the Emperor's realm into decades of bloodshed and madness.

Such duties of record-keeping would normally fall to a Chapter's Librarians, but the Black Templars Chapter boasts not a single psychic Space Marine amongst their ranks. It is uncertain how, or when, the Black Templars ceased to field Librarians, for with their disappearance, much of the Chapter's history was also lost. Outsiders suggest that, as the Chapter came to worship the Emperor as a God unlike most of their fellow members of the Adeptus Astartes, they took his decree at the Council of Nikaea to disband their Librarius divisions as holy law. Others whisper that the Black Templars' gene-seed has somehow deteriorated, or that their Librarians were slain during a great war in the Chapter's history. Some scholars point to the Black Templars' final battle to end the Catelexis Heresy in the 34th Millennium, and the apocalyptic psychic death-scream that tore through the Warp after the slaying of the Cacodominus, as another possible explanation. Whatever the truth, the Black Templars have come to accept the loss of their Librarians as part of the Emperor's divine plan. If the Emperor decides to once again bless the Black Templars with Librarians, they will embrace it, but until that day, they will wage battle without these powerful warriors at their side.

Iron Hands and Ferrus ManusEdit

Hi again Montonius. first off I want to thank you for all the good work you have done on this wiki. Also thanks for adding the pages I was asking.  I was also wondering if we could start pages for Erasmus Ruuman and Ishmal from the Feat of Iron novel.  As well as Erasmus Golg of the Iron Warriors from Horus Hersey book 3 page 254 I think. I know it would help you more if I could make them rather then ask, but I am not the best at editing or starting pages. so best I can do is give you the books they are in and try and help a little. 

Hey  Montonius I was reading the old earth novel and on chapter 15 they talk about how the Cult of the Gorgon built a puppet version of Ferrus Manus that actually had one of his real arms attached to it that they had found and that VulKan destroyed.  Also I think I remember reading in the short story Imperfect that is in the Death and defiance anthology, that Fabius Bile had made clones of Ferrus but they were destroyed as they wouldnt turn traiter like there template. oh and also I read in the rebirth novel by Nick Kyme that the Iron Hands were returned Ferrus skull after his death. It says it in the epilogue on page 378. Hopeing u can update the page with all this info I found please and thanks man. Warhammer1994 (talk) 05:05, July 16, 2018 (UTC)Warhammer1994

Hey montonius i was going to edit it but the page is locked. the one dreadnought on the Knight Lords Page is ancient reeve. this one I mean. oh and the other one  next to is is ancient Carrow they are both in horus heresy book 2 from forge world.

Hi again montonius i wanted to say also i noticed the updates i added to shadrak Medusan were removed from the shattered legions page. I had gotten them from the medusan novel. it explains how his hand left hand was ravaged i the first part of the book and goes into how they had to remove it and replace it. the other part i added was from page 20 i believe. i read it from a pdf file online tho so may be different in paper version. but it tells how he is battel scared and his flesh is inlaid with augmetic circuitry, and says how his rightside rib wall is a augmetic plate grafted to flesh-spare bone. i undertstand if u dont want it on the wiki. but i like having the details there to read. that and iron hands are my favorite legion. thanks for the good work on the wiki though man very informative. AxelIronHands (talk) 07:12, August 5, 2018 (UTC)AxelIronHands


I just wanted to say thank you for being such a good administrator.  Unlike other wikis or games where the moderation and administration is toxic and oppresive, you don't do that and I don't feel like purging you after any decisions. Thanks again for making this wiki what is it.

Update/fix database dump Edit

Hey Montonius,

First of all, thanks so much for maintaining such high quality content. It has gotten me so engaged that I want to read more, so I wanted to have a epub/mobi version of the wiki to read on my kindle. I was wondering if there was currently a copy of such a thing?

If not, another way would be to parse the xml database dumps found here and generate an ebook using that. However, currently the download links to the database are broken, and haven't been updated in a while. I was wondering if you could generate an updated database dump? If I manage to successfully generate it, and if people are interested I would love to share it back with the community.

Thanks alot,

I recently created the pages for the Ynnari and Yvraine and some guy said on my talk page I should slow down on my edits so the admins can go through them, and that if I had any questions I should go to you. My question is how will I know when I can start expanding upon the existing Ynnari pages and create new ones, or can I do so straight away. --O21014 (talk) 12:01, February 18, 2019 (UTC)

How to find new fantasy franchises to get into Edit

Hello Montonius,

I am currently doing a study on the challenges fantasy fans face in finding the next fantasy franchise they would like to get into and where to get access to that content.

Given your role as an admin for the Warhammer 40K wiki, I would be keen to interview you to get your thought on this. What would be the best way to do this and would you have some availability to connect on this over the coming weeks?

Luna Wolves standardisations Edit

Hey Montonius,

I was happy to finally do it and I went through yet another page, deleting th/st/rd after Legion numbers, since you clearly stated that after Legion numbers they are wrong because they are implied after the Roman numbers... Was there something I was missing, when editing the Luna Wolves?

For the Emperor.

White Scars Edit

Hey Montonius,

you deleted the Categories of the White Scars Article, while editing it the last few times. --Vo0DoO40k (talk) 10:21, April 13, 2019 (UTC)

Typhus Edit

Hey Montonius, I think the same bug that affected the White Scars page has occured to the Typhus page. God of Ps (talk) 21:38, April 13, 2019 (UTC)

Category bug Edit

Hey Montonius,

yeah, happened to me recently. I found that it occurs frequently if you try to publish and are then prompted to check something i.e. if you use the option that prompts you to fill out the summary before editing. If I fill out the summary before publishing, nothing happens. If I forget the categories sometimes go to nirvana. Maybe that will help...

Primarch Rediscovery Dates Edit


Leman Russ - Molorian Revolt, 800.M30. Presented here is a rare example of a VIth Legion warrior almost twenty years prior to the return of Leman Russ (Inferno, p.92)

Ferrus Manus - Little over forty years before 869.M30 (Ferrus Manus: Gorgon of Medusa, Chs. 1,3)
Five years after Russ (Wolfsbane, Chapter 9)
In a short span of years after the sundering of the Krooked-Claw empire in 807.M30 (Massacre, pg. 66)

Fulgrim - Found prior to 831.M30 (Riven) ‘It is not the dead I pity but the living. Those left at the threshold of ending are the ones who bear the burden of death. They are the ones who have to learn to live, knowing that nothing can be as it was.’
– from Lament for the Phoenix,
penned by the Primarch Fulgrim in 831.M30

Rogal Dorn - Over the next sixteen decades, the Imperial Fists fought on the burning edge of the Great Crusade. (Extermination, pg.60)

Roboute Guilliman - The dark irony was that more than two years previously, unknown and withheld from the Legion's knowledge and before the events at Septus [833.M30], their Primarch had been located by the Emperor, but owing to the vagaries of the Warp, contact would not prove possible for several more years. Thwarted by a power even
the Emperor could not readily ignore, it would be something in the region of five standard years before contact could be successfully attempted.
 (Tempest, pg. 97) 833-2+5 = 836.M30

Magnus the Red - 840.M30 (Magnus the Red: Master of Prospero, Chapter 1) For the Thousand Sons, that great day had come thirteen years ago; it was barely four in the case of the Iron Warriors.

853.M30 - Twelve Primarchs (Magnus the Red: Master of Prospero, Chapter 1)

Mortarion‘Lupercal…’ Mortarion knew the names of some of his siblings, and the lord of the Luna Wolves was foremost among them. ‘The first to be found.’
‘He was,’ nodded his father. ‘Just over half a century ago now, by the Terran calendar. He’s led the way ever since.’
(Lantern's Light short story)

Lorgar - 857.M30 (Tempest, pg.16)

Jaghatai Khan - 865.M30

Konrad Curze - Almost a century after the Great Crusade began, the Emperor came to Nostramo (Massacre, pg.95)

AngronIt was in the closing segments of 899.M30 that conclusive word finally reached the Ultramarines Primarch that the Psybrids had not only been encountered, but met in battle. Relayed from the central Astrotelepathic chamber of Terra, the strange report had come from a sub-fleet of the XII'h Legion, then in its last days as the War Hounds before its own Primarch, Angron, was found. (Tempest, pg. 97)
Characters of Betrayer often say that Angron was found hundred years prior to the Shadow Crusade or over hundred years ago. 900s.M30, then

Corax - At the beginning of the Heresy, the Mor Deythan are few in number, having fought countless campaigns over eight decades at their master's side (Extermination, pg.76) Taking place almost fifty years after the Primarch had resumed command of his Legion, the Compliance of Indra-Sul in 987.M30...

Images Edit

Hey Montonius I had found these images they are from the horus heresy legions phone card game.  Idk if you wanted to add them to the pages with these guys.  Its Malcharion of Night Lords pre dreadnought form. Ignatius Grulgor and Cadmus Tyro  with the bird Garuda of the Iron Hands. and Amadues Ducaine as well of Iron Hands. I figure they would be neat additons to the wiki on the pages with the short descriptions of these guys. Also for Iron Father  page two images from Eye of Medusa and Voice of Mars of Stronos when he was still a Iron Captian. sources for the cards u can find under cards on this link if you do decide to use the images for the charcters on the pages they are on.

Hey Montonius!

Please update Shadow Crusade and Ultramar pages. Lorgar and Angron destroyed not 26+, but hundred(s) planets of Ultramar.

"Corvo looked out over the city. Warning lights winked on cranes over the Via Decmanus Maximus. There, a new proscenium was being raised. He wondered what kind of victory it was for Ultramar, when more than a hundred worlds had died. " - Laurel of Defiance Short Story

'You speak to me of loyalty.’ Fulgrim tutted and shook his long warped head. ‘And where do your loyalties lie, lord commander? You were late to the Palace, were you not? Delayed. Always, your love for your own kingdom trumps your so-called loyalty to our father. Like a little Emperor, playing at being daddy in the sand, making tiny empires. You would have saved the Five Hundred Worlds and lost the million of our father. Pathetic.’ A long, forked tongue flitted over his painted lips. ‘How are your Five Hundred Worlds now, brother? How many are left? Four hundred? Three? I hear Angron and Lorgar had a rare time bringing down the bastions of your puny realm and slitting the throats of your people.’ - Dark Imperium Novel, Chapter 3

"This so-called Shadow Crusade would serve another, still more sinister purpose in addition to its military objectives. In laying waste to hundreds of worlds and dedicating the deaths of millions to those powers to which he was pledged, the Primarch Lorgar would precipitate such turmoil in the Immaterium that the galaxy would be split all but in two by an impenetrable warp storm." - Horus Heresy Book 4: Tempest, page 145

Eldar Lexicon Gallery, lockedEdit

I thought that the Eldar Lexicon page should have a gallery that lists all known Eldar runes, from that of the Howling Banshees to that of Ynnead, so it would be easier for users to identify all those runes in just one page.

I apologise that what I did earlier would seem like vandalism, due to it being improperly arranged.

Thank you for finishing up the descriptions for the universal relics from the Horus Heresy Book 4 "Conquest". However there are still relics to be added from the Mechnaicum, Solar Auxila and Legio Astartes that I feel would improve the 40k Wiki. If you would like me to copy down the basic descriptions, then I would be happy to. Many thanks, and as always the Emperor protects.

For that, we'll need to send you a direct email to talk details. Is it okay if we contact you at the email address you have on file for your account?

If you're interested in hearing more but don't want us to email you, you can also join Fandom's Discord via . You'll find me there as Mira Laime#9344 ! Mira Laime @fandom  (help forum | blog) 22:32, July 26, 2019 (UTC)

Update of the AppEdit

Hiya :) The link on the main page for downloading the mobile app still points to the obsolete and unsupported app. Would you mind if I updated the link to the new version? —Moviesign (talk) 21:45, August 22, 2019 (UTC)

Done. I suppose we could provide both links if we had a second image file for it... —Moviesign (talk) 22:08, August 22, 2019 (UTC)
Why did you put the old one back? —Moviesign (talk) 22:59, August 22, 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, I thought you preferred the Apple App Store link. My bad.
Do you have specific feedback about the Fandom app? If so, I'd like to hear it and pass along any important points that you feel need addressing. For the most part, the old community app doesn't display content as well as the Fandom app due to the outdated native app skin. It doesn't work on nearly as many phones, crashes more often, and has a number of bugs that Fandom doesn't plan to fix. Plus, it is not available at all for iOS users in the EU. —Moviesign (talk) 15:23, August 23, 2019 (UTC)
This just in: App Technical Updates. Dark mode and other good stuff. —Moviesign (talk) 00:11, August 27, 2019 (UTC)

Recent HarassmentEdit

The user in question has been IP blocked (one specific IP and a range of others) for three months on the three wikis that you mentioned. Are there any other wikis where this has happened to you? If so, give me a link and I will block there also. —Moviesign (talk) 23:01, November 22, 2019 (UTC)

Unfortunately, blocking the name does not block the IP address. Even if you check the box that says "block this IP and any others...", the IP block only lasts for 3 days, so he can create a new account and log in from the same IP after 3 days. So if he comes back, block him and then let me know and I will boost the IP block to 3 months. —Moviesign (talk) 01:04, November 23, 2019 (UTC)
All IP blocks have been extended to 3 months. All we can do is go on about our business and see what happens. —Moviesign (talk) 01:58, November 23, 2019 (UTC)

The identity of the vandal would only be of use if a law was broken and you wanted to report the person to the police. Facebook might have other recourse actions you can take. The maximum sanction here would be a global block across all of Fandom. Account bans can be infinite, but IP bans are typically 3 months because people don't usually keep their IP address for longer than that. They can be renewed as needed. —Moviesign (talk) 14:41, November 23, 2019 (UTC)

Update: In order to block the vandal from Discussions, an additional global block has been put in place (by the VSTF/IVT folks who have the privilege to do that). Hopefully, that will be the end of it. Let me know if you see anything else from this guy. —Moviesign (talk) 00:23, November 24, 2019 (UTC)
That wiki should be deleted by tomorrow has been deleted. Unfortunately 2FA is not available on Fandom yet, unless you login with a Twitch account which I believe does have it. I have also received an email about repeated login failures. Stay frosty. —Moviesign (talk) 23:57, November 24, 2019 (UTC)

Fandom is aware of the problem and is working on it. That's all I know right now. —Moviesign (talk) 15:13, November 25, 2019 (UTC)

We have done what we can—IP and account blocks across Fandom. It looks like you or VSTF have deleted/reverted the vandalism. If it happens again, please report it on the VSTF Wiki and on my Talk page or Wall. Any new tools for Discussions will have to wait until after the UCP migration later this year. —Moviesign (talk) 21:15, February 29, 2020 (UTC)

The user was globally blocked at 08:19. I added the IP block. —Moviesign (talk) 00:26, March 17, 2020 (UTC)

New Topic Card for the AppEdit

A discussion about topic cards (the icon that appears for a wiki in the Fandom app) for the Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40K wikis began on Lord Eledan's wall and has produced a new topic card for Warhammer Fantasy but we still need one for Warhammer 40K (so I was told). Please join in the conversation and help pick a more representative image for this wiki. Feel free to move the conversation to somewhere on this wiki if you'd like. —Moviesign (talk) 23:47, December 11, 2019 (UTC)

Unfortunately, the first image I submitted was rejected for being too wide for the height, and that was after I cut off part of his foot to get it narrower. Can you suggest any other images that might be good candidates? —Moviesign (talk) 00:03, December 12, 2019 (UTC)
That one looks much more likely to pass, thank you. I will crop it and scale as necessary and give it a transparent background, then post it here for your approval before submitting it. —Moviesign (talk) 00:13, December 12, 2019 (UTC)

How does this look? Of the two candidates, I think this one is clearer and more distinct. It has a nice sharp outline. The muzzle flash on the second image would probably not render well on a topic card. —Moviesign (talk) 01:17, December 12, 2019 (UTC)

Image submitted! —Moviesign (talk) 03:16, December 12, 2019 (UTC)

The design team requests a higher quality image (higher resolution or perhaps less compressed) and a bit taller (to fill the vertical space) if possible. I'm not sure why, but they cropped off the ground on which the figure is standing, making the image a bit short. Is any better quality version available?

BTW, the Warhammer Fantasy image was approved. —Moviesign (talk) 23:45, January 1, 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for the higher res pic. I'm going to try and get them to accept that one (without cutting off the base!). If they still balk, I will try the watercolor image. —Moviesign (talk) 02:55, January 3, 2020 (UTC)

I just checked again and the new topic cards are up! —Moviesign (talk) 03:22, January 21, 2020 (UTC)



Invitation to join the advisor programEdit

Hello! I'm Sannse, from Fandom's Editor Experience team. I'm contacting you as the most recently active admin. Hopefully you can pass this on to others as needed.

One project that we're excited about launching is an initiative to pair newly registered users with experienced advisors (which they can choose from). These advisors would be available for answering basic editing questions and guiding appropriate edits, in the hope that these users will become active in the local community.

Why do this, rather than rely on admins and moderators? We've seen from research and experience (both from Wikipedia) that establishing a human bond with a peer "senpai" or mentor can have a better effect on the comfort of the newcomer, especially where the high volume of edits may cause the quick response of rollbacks rather than taking the time to walk new editors through their early work. While some communities do take that time and care among their leaders, we feel an additional level might put new users at ease and help them be more comfortable with editing. Ultimately, we feel like this project will either free up some time for admins and moderators, or designate them as approachable welcomers to talk to and guide new users. We want to see how effective this is on a relatively small number of communities and see if Fandom's results are consistent with those experienced on Wikipedia. If they are, we may pursue expanding the pilot program and perhaps seeking to build it into a core part of the new platform.

Here's what we would wish for your community to agree to:

  • At least one volunteer advisor, acting as an advisor and advocate helping newcomers. For the most part, this means responding to questions that newcomers leave the advisor in Discussions. Sometimes this may mean the advisor interacts with admins and moderators to address concerns regarding the newcomer. We have some advisors-at-large (those not tied to the local community, but available as fallbacks) already, but if you have ideas on who you might want to represent you in this role (or if you'd like to do so yourself!), feel free to contact me on my Wall.
  • Discussions / Feeds. Your community must have this active for the current solution to work. This is the primary method in which advisors have open communication with the users that choose them. We also recommend a Feeds channel of “Help Desk” where the communications can be placed, if you do not have a similar channel.
  • A change to your Welcome Messages to allow a method where a newcomer can choose an advisor. If you are currently participating in the MyDashboard program, there will be a card there to interact with an advisor.

We are testing this for the next two months, and will see what the future of the program is thereafter. Is this a program you would feel comfortable with placing on your community? -- Sannse @fandom (help forum | blog) 02:35, December 15, 2019 (UTC)

Chaos Terminator Edit Edit

Greetings Admin! I noticed the comment you said, apologies for not reading the links but they don't seem to work for me at the moment. I noticed the change from "All" to "Most" on the Terminator page , much appreciated.

Wordmark ImagesEdit


Logo for the Main Page


Wordmark version 1


Wordmark version 2

Here ya go, a new logo and two wordmarks to choose from. I thought putting the "Wiki" off to the side would allow for a bigger looking logo, but the aspect ratio was such that it came out the same size either way. —Moviesign (talk) 13:15, May 24, 2020 (UTC)

I believe everything is converted to .webp for display on the wiki, so to get the .png file you have to click on the "original file" link on the File: page and then it will be .png when you download it. —Moviesign (talk) 21:24, May 24, 2020 (UTC)

Important LinksEdit

Hmmm, very strange. I will look into it. —Moviesign (talk) 21:48, June 4, 2020 (UTC)

It looks like Hector has fixed most if not all of the broken links and perhaps some others as well. —Moviesign (talk) 13:17, June 5, 2020 (UTC)

Unreleased VideosEdit

I uploaded a regular video and it worked, so the problem is only with unreleased videos. If this used to work, then either YouTube has changed their interface (like not giving a thumbnail anymore) or something has changed on the Fandom side. I will file a trouble ticket. —Moviesign (talk) 13:17, June 5, 2020 (UTC)

Someone suggested having the video owner change the video from private to unlisted. Apparently the creator of the video can choose whether or not the video is allowed to be embedded. Worth a try. —Moviesign (talk) 13:45, June 5, 2020 (UTC)
