Tolkien Gateway

Talk:January 2006

Aren't this page and its subpages (e.g., January 3, 2006) a little out of standard format in regards to naming? --Narfil Palùrfalas 16:35, 29 June 2007 (EDT)

They were from back before TolkienNews.net when we were posting news here. I still would like to bring back news to the wiki and haven't entirely decided the most efficient means of doing so, but I'll sort these out once it is finalized. --Hyarion 16:38, 29 June 2007 (EDT)
Wishing someone a 'happy birthday' who's been dead for more that three decades strikes me as rather odd, to put it mildly. I'll delete it, with your permission. ~ Earendilyon 15:17, 26 December 2007 (EST)
Good decision; we want to stick to the facts and stay neutral, 'happy birthday' treads away from that. I'm still working on the news implementation, so hopefully we can get these articles sorted out soon. --Hyarion 17:36, 26 December 2007 (EST)

[edit] Point of this in the new date system?

what the title says. With the new date idea, is this still necessary? -- Ederchil 09:01, 29 January 2008 (EST)

I stumbled across these pages (January 2006 and January 1, 2006January 7, 2006 on my amblings round TG, and I think these no longer serve any purpose and should be deleted. If not, this page and January 4, 2006 should be taken out of Category:Dates. — Mithrennaith 23:01, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
Another idea might be to put these pages, all eight, into a category of their own ("Dates from old news project"?), explaining on the category page that they belong to a project that was abandoned and are only retained for archive purposes. Maybe they ought to be moved to another namespace, though I think we shouldn't trouble. — Mithrennaith 00:22, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
