Tolkien Gateway: Meetings is an attempt which hopes to bring editors of the encyclopaedia into a monthly chat to discuss the progress as well as the future of the site. Meetings will take place on our IRC network and you can check the time of the meeting by clicking on a link to the next meeting below. Before the meeting, users can give their ideas for discussion by clicking on the link to the next meeting below. For those unable to attend a meeting, you will still be allowed to write down thoughts prior to the meeting which will be brought up by someone else. Transcripts will also be available after the meeting for non-attendees to read.
