hmmm... [In reply to] Can't Post

Hobbit Headlines doesn't meet the criteria of 'Many people contribute to the insightful or clever content of the entire thread'... but, on the other hand, the threads could - down the road - be an incredible resource.

So I think that warrants a spot in the wiki. If I were wont to overthink (and for all my cautions not to.. I am always overthinking!) I might consider whether for the wiki side - if it needs to be in a different section. But I think this is the one in which we'd most likely look for it.

I think TAS qualifies completely.

To reiterate (from my first post)... one the wiki side, we want a 'explanation' of the series. This is an 'encyclopedia' entry.

For the adjunct section, it's just a collection of links (along with a very brief description).

Then we link the two sections together.

The fine distinction is, I consider the encyclopedia section to be essential to the History Wiki and the mission statement of the project.

The Collected Links section is a service the project supplies but is not essential to the goals of the History project.

fwiw: we had a volunteer working on content for the Periodic Threads that is no longer active on the message boards. So other than some tidying up I did, this section hasn't had a volunteer curator in a while.

Peredhil lover was working on the Collected Links and is considered the manager of that section. But she hasn't been active on the boards or on the wiki... although I've spoken to her fairly recently and she hasn't abandoned the notion of collecting links. But I think she would direct her attention first to the collections she has already started and she would welcome people more engaged in these more recent series doing their part at collecting.
