Index talk:Interviews with J.R.R. Tolkien

Revision as of 14:27, 23 May 2011 by Amroth (Talk | contribs)

As I've never found any overview of the interviews conducted with Tolkien (neither on the web nor in literature), I though it could be interesting with such a "list article". A question: any suggestions on a standard for how to name the individual articles concerning interviews? Not all have a proper title, and some have been published under several titles. (Reminding me of the problem of how to name the unpublished letters.) --Morgan 13:59, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

What I'm thinking of doing is to standardize the article titles to "19XX [name of interviewer] interview". Any thoughts? I know that it's not everyone's cup of tea to have short stub articles on each and every interview, but I find that it really simplifies referencing to individual interviews (and hopefully the stub articles can be expanded, much like Ederchil and Gamling have done with the letters).--Morgan 20:58, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
Stripe my name from the letters credit. I can't even dream about doing what Gamling did. I think you can stub "19XX [Name] interview" (or, if no name is known, [Publication]) and expand them when you get info on them. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 21:03, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick reply, Ederchil - I'll wait a while to see if others chime in (and I probably won't have time or steadfastness to create all the articles right away).--Morgan 21:12, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
I'm definitely in favor of standardizing the titles and can't think of any better suited scheme than what you have suggested. You've got my vote. --Hyarion 23:19, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
I second that. --Amroth 14:27, 23 May 2011 (UTC)
