[edit] Agenda and outcome

Item Responsible Member Discussion Point Outcome
#1 KingAragorn Meeting opening. Mith, Amroth, Ederchil, Hyarion, KingAragorn, and Morgan were all present.
#2 Amroth How should we structure our Lego articles? A few possibilities:
  1. One article
  2. Articles about Lego The Lord of the Ring and Lego The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (and a general article?)
  3. Same as above, but with articles about individual sets
The decision to tone down the old emphasis on collectibles was reaffirmed. Lego, for the time being, would have one article. If, in future, Lego video games were released, these would merit their own and separate articles.
#3 Mith What do we do about artists we can't get hold of? It was agreed that a fairuse template (with words akin to "If you're the copyright owner of this image, please contact X@tolkiengateway.net ..." included therein) should be added to all images by artists we could not get hold of.
#4 Mith Do we want to link in with LOTR Project somehow? (Not sure how, but every character on there links to a TG article, so might be nice to reciprocate). Opinion was mixed, but many agreed that we should link to them somehow. But the "how" was not decided upon. The only thing that was agreed was that an article should be made for the website.
#5 KingAragorn Discussion of The Hobbit rewrite. The following section headers were agreed upon: Plot, Conception, Inspiration, Publications and editions, Adaptations.
#6 KingAragorn Adjournment discussions and meeting adjournment. N/A
