==Ideas for Discussion==
 
*Discuss the [[Tolkien Gateway:Community Portal|Community Portal]], if anything should be added/changed etc. Also discuss it's importance for newcomers and regular users.--{{User:KingAragorn/sig}} 15:24, 10 August 2008 (EDT)
 
 
*And for the newcomers: an introduction round (of all, ofc)? Who you are, where you're from, what you want to contribute... Also, since I've added so many TG-namespace articles to the category, weed it out: what's necessary and what's not. -- [[User:Ederchil|Ederchil]] 15:53, 10 August 2008 (EDT)
 
 
*Discuss Ederchil's nomination for adminship, and the sharing of responsibility on the site, as is suggested [[Tolkien Gateway:Projects|here]].--{{User:KingAragorn/sig}} 15:14, 13 August 2008 (EDT)
 
 
*Discuss some sort of policy regarding GdT's The Hobbit. In December, casting (and the rumour around it) begins. Next year, photography. It's early, but a clear policy concerning the in/exclusion of rumours and leaked set info would be handy to have ready when Udûn breaks loose. (Note: can wait a couple of weeks if we're out of time). -- [[User:Ederchil|Ederchil]] 14:30, 14 August 2008 (EDT)
 
 
*Discuss adding more [http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Category:Pronounced_articles| pronounced articles], like what [[User:Ardamir|Ardamir]] has done.--[[User:Quidon88|Quidon88]] 20:09, 14 August 2008 (EDT)
 
[[Category:Tolkien Gateway Meetings]]
 
 
*I'm new here and I've decided (for the time being at least) to pick this wiki over the Lord of the Rings wiki. The other one seems to focus less on the literature and more on the movies. I like the format here, but I'm still unsure, the wiki that I administrate, the [http://pirates.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page Pirates of the Caribbean Wiki] (switch to Monobook for best view), is a small wiki too, and I don't want to get involve with a wiki with just a handful of users. I made a significant amount of progress there: I started a Featured Article system, Improvement Drive, a fairly compitant administrative committee, wrote close to ten Featured Articles almost single handedly, introduced a compitant rule system, etc. To say the least (which I haven't) it was a major overhaul. However, due to a significant lack of user contributions and involvement, my FA system, Improvement Drive, and administrative committee have all come to a screeching halt, so I have come looking for another place to set up shop as it were. I would like to assess this site as is currently stands, and set up a comprehensive system to bring this wiki up to [http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page Wookieepedian] standards. I would like to discuss: improving the Featured Article system (rules, set up, etc.), a possible Improvement Drive (or at least a comprehensive system), amongst other things, such as an overhaul of Tolkien Gateway Projects. I encourage you to observe my setup at the PotC Wiki so that you may draw inspiration from it and help to improve the Tolkien Gateway. I apologize for my pushiness and what I feel may be an over-aggrandizing of my own achievements. Any comments or suggestions on my talk page would be appreciated.--[[User:Lord Cutler Beckett|Lord Cutler Beckett]]<sup>[[User talk:Lord Cutler Beckett|Port Royal]]</sup> 22:09, 15 August 2008 (EDT)
