I definitely would like to have an article for every chapter in at least The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. One issue that has come up, is of course naming. Would something like A Long-expected Party work? Unfortunately this poses a problem for chapters such as Strider as they would have to be directed to something like Strider (chapter). Or we could use The Lord of the Rings Chapter 1 or The Lord of the Rings Chapter I]] in Roman Numerals. Another option would be [[The Lord of the Rings - A Long-expected Party. Any suggestions? Whichever standard we use I think we should at least redirect the chapter titles such as A Long-expected Party to the correct chapter article. And then maybe at the bottom of the Strider article put a link to the chapter. --Hyarion 23:22, 13 March 2006 (EST)

I think we'd best create articles with just the Chapter title, not the book's title added to it. For the chapter titles that cause the problems you mention, we could create disambiguation pages. Which would mean, of course, that for the article of the chapter title, we would have to add "(chapter)" to it, as you said: Strider (chapter). --Earendilyon 06:22, 27 March 2006 (EST)
Completed. The chapters simply contain a summary of the chapter for now but in the near future we can start to analyze and polish the summaries. I suppose I should make pages for The Lord of the Rings: Book I etc with summaries for those as well. --Hyarion 17:17, 2 April 2006 (EDT)
