Tolkien Gateway

Tolkien Gateway talk:Meetings/17 August 2008

[edit] Ideas for Agenda

  • 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. -- Ederchil 15:53, 10 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 Ud√Ľn breaks loose. (Note: can wait a couple of weeks if we're out of time). -- Ederchil 14:30, 14 August 2008 (EDT)


  • 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 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 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.--Lord Cutler BeckettPort Royal 22:09, 15 August 2008 (EDT)

[edit] Discussion

Something we haven't decided yet is how long the meeting should be, I think it should be about half an hour, but it could be longer if necessary.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  07:49, 16 August 2008 (EDT)

As long as it takes, I guess. Though I don't want to make it too long, I've got an exam on Monday. -- Ederchil 08:25, 16 August 2008 (EDT)
I think we've got quite a lot of ideas for discussion, so we can leave some for next week. Good luck with your exam!-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  08:28, 16 August 2008 (EDT)
