[edit] Agenda and outcome

Item Responsible Member Discussion Point Outcome
#1 KingAragorn Meeting opening. KingAragorn, Amroth, Ederchil, Gamling, Hyarion, and Morgan were all present.
#2 KingAragorn Setting up email addressing on the tolkiengateway.net domain. With such email addresses users would be able to appear professional and legitimate in their capacity of obtaining artist's permission to host their work. Hyarion said that he would look into the matter, favouring Gmail over Windows Live.
#3 Amroth Languages portal: In the upper right of the portal pages there's is a list of portals, which includes a link to Portal:Languages. However, at this point, the portal doesn't exist. When will it be created and what should it include? Morgan's dictionary project? KingAragorn and Morgan put forward their plan for the languages portal, the main thrust being that it would incorporate Morgan's dictionary project.
#4 KingAragorn Adjournment discussions and meeting adjournment. The implementation of the new File licensing templates was discussed, including the new licensing drop-down list on the upload form.

Morgan put forward a link with ways to speed up MediaWikis; in response Hyarion said that the problem TG had was not to do with speed per se.

It was also agreed that Amroth could go ahead and make more nationality "babel" templates.
