I've put them in the first post now for all to see! Thorin, I used your 'normally' rule only for those forums with relatively flexible boundaries. I would rather be specific on the literary forums and RP forum and generalise the other forums.

Hope this is ok!

Ooo! We get to "sticky-ize" it!

Well, we got sticky threads...

Captain TheGentleman, I noticed this in the first post:
quote:
2. The Legendarium Project , a project hosted by Maebenn where Tolkien's latest source texts are examined in an effort to put together a new and better The Silmarillion.
I just wanted to tell you that we are not putting together a Silmarillion, we are putting together the whole mythology. [] I'm sorry I don't have a good suggestion for how to improve the wording, but I'm sure you will come up with something appropriate. []

Sorry Maerbenn! Actually the quote was Fingy's and not mine (if possible I will always pass the blame [] ) - go back a couple of pages and you will see his suggestion.

Since it is your project I would be honoured if you provided the description of what you are doing.

Q. I'm after some serious Tolkien material, where do I start?
A. Following is a list of the most prominent resources and community projects here at MT:

1. Your REAL elven name!
2. The Legendarium Project , a project hosted by Maebenn where Tolkien's latest source texts are examined in an effort to put together a new and better The Silmarillion.
3. The Trivia Archives, a project hosted by Lugburz, where old trivia threads are archived on alternate servers, still in preliminary phase.
4. Library of the White Tower , a project hosted by our very own WGW, to participate in this project simply contribute any of the discussions housed in the Library Council of Minas Tirith forum.

I'd suggest editing that question, how about:

Q I'm interested in serious Tolkien discussion...
1. Literary threads
2. Library Council
3. The Legendarium Project

And add another question

Q What resource threads can I find in MT?

1. Your Real Elven name
2. Archiving threads<I'll insert thread from the Pony which brings together all the discussion>
3. RP resource <insert Mandin's thread>
4. Funny threads <will post my thread> []

Excellent suggestion my friend! Before I edit the list can you think of any other additions? Maybe there are some other members who want to suggest additions to the proposed two lists:

> Thread for serious Tolkien debate

> Threads for Tolkien resource

I wouldn't link to threads that segregate literary discussion. The legendarium is a project outside MT and a discussion by itself, so it definitely deserves to be on the first list.

The second set would not really be a 'Tolkien' set as it stands.

How about a link to some of the great book-lists in the Pony? The pony has some nice genearal resources that pop up from time to time... Maybe it is time to come up with a general resource thread for the pony. [] And just link to that here...

We live in a world of hierarchy! Just got back from a high-level description of the chip I'm working on. Figured out how insignificantly small my part is. I'm happy that the chip won't work without my contribution though. []

Noted. I'll have a dig around before I commit the changes and to give time for other people to make suggestions.

Yes, sorry Captain TG, forgot to tell that it was the 'report post' that you should add... It was so obvious in my mind that I forgot that it could be confusing for you []

Now, you might want to consider to add my 'Eastern Lands' Thread to the ressource list... Since nobody proposed it, I just thought I'd do it myself!!! []

LOL, Lúthien, maybe we should ask WGW to make KPR's thread sticky []

Captain TG (I just like to call you that way [] ), if you need a short descript of what my thread's about, here it is:

"a project, hosted by Nash Rómerandir, where all the available information about the East, scattered through Tolkien's works, is (slowly) gathered."

It seems fit []

Pardon the ignorant newbie, but....
What does it mean for a thread to become sticky?
And where and what is Role Playing?
So, I'll just be waiting for someone to call me an ignorant cow... []

Never mind, scratch the Q. about Role Playing. I figured it out. Oopsy! 'pologies. []

You ignorant cow!
Sticky threads have this funky icon:  -

They stay at the top of the list of topics regaurdless of the time of the last post.
They also have this weird, sticky stuff on them, and when you touch them, it makes your finger all strange...
