Ideas for Agenda[edit]

  • Nag Hyarion about the Show/Hide extension. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:03, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Just generally nag Hyarion. -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  20:12, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Make up some good excuses. --Hyarion 03:48, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Check the ideas for 1st August and see what still needs discussing/merits attention. — Mithrennaith 22:11, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Redlinks (currently 7,177 of them). --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 13:41, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
  • Articles that still consist of "seed content" from other sites. —Aulë the Smith (Tk·Cb) 13:48, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
    • We do have a(n unwritten) policy on this: when we come across one such pilfered article, we should rewrite it there and then, or tag it for a rewrite, or else provide a link to the Encyclopedia of Arda or Wikipedia. They are a relic from a time long along when we were still young, but unfortunately there's no record of which articles came from elsewhere, so we can't find them unless we stumble across them. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 14:03, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
      • Ah OK. I was just going to suggest making that a (written) policy and making a specific tag for it. If its already accepted practice then there's nothing really to discuss. —Aulë the Smith (Tk·Cb) 14:07, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
  • Which style to use when creating article and category titles? I'm specifically thinking about capitals versus lower-case - "Category:Images of Authors" or "Category:Images of authors"? --Morgan 23:22, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
