Parts of the project

  • Fixing broken images. This is the most important. See this Data.SE query (set the date range to run from 2011-01-11 to 2017-03-11) for a full list of posts with images that need fixing. DONE.

  • Star Trek tags. There's a consensus here to tag all questions about Star Trek with the generic tag. There are about several hundred of these, which can be found by this and related searches (this one may also be helpful). DONE.

  • Tolkien tags. There's a consensus here to keep for questions about the region, for questions about the author himself, and a new tag for questions about his works. This will take a lot of retagging - please see below for how you can help!


Organisation of Tolkien edits - **1. [tolkien]**

I had a look through the 905 (!) questions tagged . Most of them weren't about the author but only about some of his works, so I retagged the 71 that were (at least arguably) specifically author-relevant with and then mod-merged the tag into . (Not that it really matters whether or not we include the initials in the tag name, but we do already have a distinct tag, and renaming to made the merging step easier. I can always mod-rename it back to if anyone objects.) At this point:

  • All questions are sensibly tagged. Don't worry about them.
  • All questions should have that tag (I can't guarantee that the other tags on all such questions are necessarily appropriate).
  • is dead, gone, and buried. (With apologies to @JasonBaker, but he'll automatically get a gold tag badge in to replace the one he's lost in .)

2. [middle-earth]

This is a similar job to , but on a smaller scale (only about 300 questions to 's 900). I merged this tag with , thus retagging most of those 300 questions in one fell swoop. The rest need to be sorted out by hand, using the list I made before the merge. These are all the questions which could potentially have the tag added back manually. (I've been quite liberal with allowing the tag to be kept; it's quite possible that some of these questions don't really deserve it.)

Please help by editing the tag into some of these questions!

3. Everything else

There's also the questions with other Tolkien-related tags (specifically , , or ) but NOT tagged or . Since the individual work tags should of course be kept, adding to all these questions will have to be done by hand rather than with mod-merges. At this point I may step back completely and let others finish off the job.

Please help by adding the tag to these questions!
