Can this be moved to The Wall ? Mistermanticore 20:18, 30 April 2007 (CDT)

I've been following wikipedia style guidelines, which call for the's to be exluded from article titles unless they would normally be capitalized. I believe that it's called "the Wall" and not "The Wall", so the the wouldn't belong. This is because we would have to rename the link every time it did not appear at the beginning of a sentence to get rid of the capitalized The. On the other hand, The Bear and the Maiden Fair always begins with a capitalized The because it's a part of the song's title. The the in "the Wall" is like "the White House". It's used in speech, but it's not a part of the object's name. -Oorag 23:03, 30 April 2007 (CDT)
The thing is, Wikipedia's style guidelines are suited for well, an encyclopedia. Seeing this at "Wall" feels strange to me, in a way that the Red Keep doesn't. Perhaps because "Wall" also means something else. It's a preference thing really, since a redirect is easy to do. Haven't done it yet, since I'm not sure how people feel.

This article could defiantly benefit from some attention. --Mor 09:59, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

I have made a few additions to the article, with which I am happy, however I really dont like the castles table I made, further more we have a castles section over at the Night's Watch article and I am not sure what info should go where. any suggestions, ideas? --Mor 23:20, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

Tactics section

I was intensely curious about how the Wall actually worked as a defensive structure until I read through the chapter describing the assault by the Wilding host. I thought it would be useful to describe why the defenders get such an advantage over an attacking force, and thus why it is so important to the defense of the Westerosi. It's unlike any other defensive structure I've ever read about (in contrast Hadrian's Wall wasn't really about defense at all, but mostly to force any and all trade to be concentrated and controlled). Hope this section helps. This is my first real edit, please let me know if I'm missing something. Ronnotel 16:44, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
