Communicating about the Mereth Aderthad
I say there but it is worth saying again that this is a Tolkien fandom event, not a I-have-to-be-good-personal-friends-with-D
What I'd like to accomplish on this post is to decide how best for all of us to discuss this. So far, I have had about two dozen people express interest in possibly participating in a real-life Mereth Aderthad, and I'm sure there's more that missed the original post. My thought is that we need an online space where we can discuss plans and share news. I think this space needs to be members-only, since we will sometimes be talking about travel plans and locations and the like, and not everyone is comfortable with that in a public forum.
I would propose setting up an LJ community that defaults to members-only (although it is possible to make public posts for general announcements). Everyone who has responded so far is on LJ. It is possible to set email notifications even for those who do not regularly check their flist.
This is just one idea. If you have other suggestions, this is the place to make them. If we have multiple suggestions, I will run a poll on my journal and go with what the majority prefers.
Tagging everyone I've heard from so far: samtyr, indy1776, just_jenni, silver_trails, huinare, heartofoshun, engarian, shirebound, hrymfaxe, lignota, binkaslibrary, pandemonium_213, gratchets, oloriel, gingerrose, metamorphage, drummerwench, elfscribe5, angelica_ramses, duck113, ignoblebard, ithilwen, periantari.
