Longer-term aspirations:

* Fix navigation in Gateway to Ithilien skin;

* Migrate from mod_rewrite to alias and fix & problem (Ex: Allen & Unwin)
+
* <s>Integrate java clients into the wiki</s> <small>(Currently not working)</small>
+
* Add an extension which allows embedding of video/audio (not yet released unfortunately)
+
** Create an extension to embed video. (Trying to dynamically convert avi/mov/wmv/etc to .flv and output as .swf is a pain)
+
* Fix [[MediaWiki:Popups.js]].
+
* Install [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Frantik/Winter Winter extension] and configure journals to display previous/next issues dynamically
+
* Code a better style to hide the generic wiki format
+
* Create a bot which goes through any Tolkien-related site and saves a cached version, similar to archive.org. This way Tolkien content can be preserved.
+
* Create a PHP script which scrapes forums, newsgroups, wikis, news sites, and various other places that are related to Tolkien so essentially a Tolkien fan can view anything in the Tolkien community that is being updated.
