***One thing that may be a problem is that not all Tolkien scholars agree on the dates, and in the different works they are often conflicting.  According to the most common timeline used Eärendil was born in 503 of the First Age and his famous voyage was in 583.  This is impossible, as Elves did not marry this young, and he would hardly have time for all his famous voyages.  This is an example of the problems with pinpointing exact dates. --[[User:Narfil Palùrfalas|Narfil Palùrfalas]] 14:51, 22 April 2006 (EDT)

  • An article for every year of our real world starting with Tolkien's birth. Would include subheadings for the months and days and may include information too minor for the timeline mentioned above. --Hyarion


Middle-earth Year articles

  • This may be me being anal but what about having a page for "T.A. 2,567" and "S.A. 35" etc. Most years would be empty or simply contain one entry, but I think it would be worth it. --Hyarion 02:00, 21 April 2006 (EDT)
    • If this is too much we could always slowly separate them. For example converting First Age, Second Age, etc. Then taking another step and maybe "F.A. 1,000" "F.A. 2,000", etc. then another step, "F.A. 500", "F.A. 1500", then another, and another, etc. --Hyarion 02:00, 21 April 2006 (EDT)
      • One thing that may be a problem is that not all Tolkien scholars agree on the dates, and in the different works they are often conflicting. According to the most common timeline used Eärendil was born in 503 of the First Age and his famous voyage was in 583. This is impossible, as Elves did not marry this young, and he would hardly have time for all his famous voyages. This is an example of the problems with pinpointing exact dates. --Narfil Palùrfalas 14:51, 22 April 2006 (EDT)
