Tolkien Gateway is excited to announce the grand opening of our first forum. I've spent the night installing a new forum script (amongst a few others) which will allow us to converse easier instead of having to use the pesky [[Tolkien_Gateway_talk:_Community_Portal|Community Portal page]]. You can easily create a new topic by going to the [[Forum:Council|Council forum home]] and typing in your title in the textbox and hitting enter. You can reply to a post by editing the page and using the standard colon (which creates a tab) or a * for a bullet followed by a reply, etc. What does everyone think? I don't think it is necessary to create forums such as for [[The Lord of the Rings]], etc as we should leave this to the real [[J.R.R. Tolkien]] forums out there. Plus we have talk pages for things like that. --[[User:Hyarion|Hyarion]] 01:25, 2 April 2006 (EST)

Welcome to the Council forum!

Tolkien Gateway is excited to announce the grand opening of our first forum. I've spent the night installing a new forum script (amongst a few others) which will allow us to converse easier instead of having to use the pesky Community Portal page. You can easily create a new topic by going to the Council forum home and typing in your title in the textbox and hitting enter. You can reply to a post by editing the page and using the standard colon (which creates a tab) or a * for a bullet followed by a reply, etc. What does everyone think? I don't think it is necessary to create forums such as for The Lord of the Rings, etc as we should leave this to the real J.R.R. Tolkien forums out there. Plus we have talk pages for things like that. --Hyarion 01:25, 2 April 2006 (EST)
