Welcome to [livejournal.com profile] thewhiteshores - thank you for joining us!

[livejournal.com profile] baranduin and I would very much like to know how you'd like to see the community develop. If you have any thoughts or ideas about the running of the community and/or what you'd like to see here, please let us know. We will gladly welcome any help you have to offer.

Also, if anyone would like to make icons, create a background or banner, we'd love to hear from you. I am going to write up the profile page. Would someone be willing to send something to [livejournal.com profile] middleearthnews to announce the community to a wider audience?

Thanks again for joining us.

Since I've been on LJ, five of my friends here have passed into the West -- Fiondil, Slipperieslope, Lorie945, Ethereal_hobbit, and _redpanda_. Something I was thinking about was that we all have different people 'friended', and have lost friends that others may not have known. Perhaps there could be a list on this site, gathered from all of us, of lost friends we'd like to have remembered?

I like this idea. I was thinking that, too, that we don't all have the same friends listed. For example, I don't know Fiondil or red panda at all (and don't forget frolijah_fan_54 on your list, too). And I know a lot of people knew ismenin (sp.?) though she was not on my flist.

Oh dear, how could I have forgotten Mary?

I have been thinking about organization. There could be:

- a master page listing everyone remembered on this community. That would be a sticky page at top.
- a master page for each individual that could consist of a number of things like:
:: a bio of sorts that could contain all kinds of things and links. I'm thinking the format of the old [livejournal.com profile] crack_van rec format could be adapted to fit our needs.
:: posts about the person could be tagged with the person's name
:: links to other posts and resources about the person

We would need to have volunteers to do the organizing and putting together of things. I know I'd like to do one for [livejournal.com profile] thamiris, the first person whose lj I read.

I like the idea of a tag for each person's name.

I think if we get the tags right, that'll cover a lot.

I had just come in here again thinking I would suggest the tagging by person!

Those are all great other ideas, too!

Yep. The use of tags is the basic building block for organization. Even if we don't go any further than that, if we remember to tag (and mods regularly review the tagging) we should be good.

_redpanda_ was among my first LJ friends--she found my Bingo Bolger Baggins' LJ before I had interacted with anyone and friended him and thus brought him into the wild Middleearth Sockpuppet Theater. She and I didn't always get along, but I was crushed when she died so young and am so grateful to her for welcoming me when I was a newbie. She was part of my crew before I found the hobbit posse you and I share. *hugs*

That
sa great idea. I have a couple of friends most others don't know who were on LJ and DW who died a couple of years ago as well who I think about frequently.

I didn't know you knew [livejournal.com profile] _redpanda_. I was not personally acquainted with her but I remember her passing.

I love this image. It resonates with me: beautiful, serene, but at a distance from the viewer. Seems to capture what this community is about.

I found this lovely drawing by luthien-surion that we could use as a journal background. It's called White Shores Are Calling.

Of course, since she copyrights her work, I imagine we'd have to get her permission.

I really like this image, both for the content and the style. It actually makes me wonder if we might commission a drawing ourselves. I was thinking that we might persuade [livejournal.com profile] dreamflower02 or another artist to make one. What do you think?
