Tolkien Gateway > Council > TG Advent: 30 Improved pages for the New Year

Fellow Gatekeepers, it has come to my attention that while many of the smaller and more minor pages on this wiki are of good quality (I myself tend to concentrate on them), the large, major, and most prominent pages could be, and should be, a lot better. I propose that for the next month, when we get time off from end-of-term and Christmas busy-ness, we concentrate all our efforts on what are probably the most important pages on this wiki. For this project I particularly want to give attention to the top ten articles in the Most linked to pages, most popular pages, and most wanted pages categories. These are the articles that are most viewed by the visitors here, and they should be in tip-top shape for that reason. I would like to invite you to aid in my goal of improving a lot of these by the time the New Year begins, as best as possible (though I myself will be on vacation for a couple of weeks). Just 30 articles (actually less, since the lists have a lot of pages in common) will make our wiki look so much better. So who's in?

I've remarked several times on the overlooking of the most important articles, but I hardly ever work on the LotR ones. Not three months ago, for instance, this wiki had over forty-five hundred articles. But Merry and Pippin had each hardly three to five sentences. Gimli was another one (while Legolas of Mirkwood, perhaps not surprisingly, was one of our longer ones). I'll try and help concentrate on some of them. Could we have a list of the prominent ones? --Narfil Palùrfalas 20:53, 29 November 2006 (EST)
