Agreed, but by the same token, anyone can post anything as trivia. How do we know the original post is true? The OP offers no source.

You're not wrong, but Jon is the gatekeeper on what gets approved as trivia, so that much is out of our hands.

This entry doesn't look nor sound credible.

That may be so, but since the webmaster approved it, anyone who wishes to correct it needs to have information proving it to be wrong.

It's always a bit case by case - the member who submitted it is generally reliable, not prone to making stuff up, etc. But I'm open to corrections!

Visible crew/equipment: After starting their four day journey through the long dark of Moria, a few shots later Gandalf pulls on his hat brim, and just as he walks (with Legolas close behind) to his left (towards the viewer's right), up some stairs, the black electrical cable leading from the staff to under the robe's left sleeve is visible.
