Hi everybody, congrats to this enjoyable wiki.

Ever thought of adding the semantic mediawiki extension? With that you could create better dynamic lists und query structured data.

Can you explain how it would benefit us? -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  23:06, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Hmm... Semantic properties are used to reduce categories und connect pages also in a machine readable way. Though, i dont know this wiki could benefit from at this point. Perhaps for a "tolkien gateway app". Furthermore, you can provide standardized forms to ease the input of structured data. Dont know, if this a requirement. The most challenging part would be to build the ontology, ie the specification of the property names. If the maintainance of the categories is getting to intensive, then this extension can help...

I'm not convinced that it will benefit us. I'm not sure what other editors think about it, however. -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  13:17, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
I'm similarly unconvinced in its usefulness. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 13:57, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
