Agenda and Outcome[edit]

Item Responsible Member Discussion Point Outcome
#1 KingAragorn Meeting opening. KingAragorn, Mith, Theoden1, Ainaldo, Amroth, Ederchil, Gamling, Hyarion, and mithrennaith were all present at the start of the meeting. Morgan joined later.
#2 KingAragorn and Amroth Update on technical problems: the spam protection situation; the articles that a too large to edit. Mith has prevented spammers from posting content by disallowing uploads, page creation and article movement for users that have been a member for less than 12 hours and have made 10 edits. The bug that meant that some large articles were uneditable has been fixed. reCAPTCHA is a possibility in the future once MediaWiki has been upgraded.
#3 KingAragorn Discussion about The Hobbit (film series) articles now that the naming has been confirmed. It was agreed that, for now, we should have one article for both films but that in future we will have an article for each film and the duology. The articles The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again were set up as redirects to The Hobbit (film series).
#4 Ainaldo Cross-reference with Ainaldo postponed the discussion.
#5 Ainaldo Analytics, search engine optimization. This discussion required Hyarion's active presence.
#6 Mith Calendars - "Date Month" (British, European and ROW - mostly - usage) or "Month Date" (American, and TG's current, usage)? It was agreed that all dates on Tolkien Gateway should use the British/European format of "Date Month".
#7 Morgan The pronunciation guides for Elvish words - keep or remove? It was decided not to remove IPA from the lead sentence of articles and that it need not, therefore, be be included elsewhere in the article. It was also mooted that a simple-English pronunciation guide could also be included in articles.
#8 Amaniar Family trees. Amaniar was not present and this item was not discussed.
#9 Amroth PDF files. It was decided that Tolkien Gateway did not need PDF files hosted on the site.
#10 Amroth People by nationality. It was agreed that Category:People by nationality should be moved to Category:People by citizenship.
#11 KingAragorn Meeting adjournment. N/A
