This should probably be moved to become a subpage of The Lord of the Rings

There is a separate page for The Hobbit, referring to the book and the movie to be made, and hopefully at some point to fannish activity around it. I don't know whether that counts as its own fandom or should be another subpage of LOTR.

Yeah, I'm not sure about The Hobbit. I don't really know if it has a fandom of its own to really merit a page, and right now the page is very wikipedia-y. This page, though, should definitely be a subpage of LotR. (And the canon info should be pared down. I'm going to cut out the history section altogether, but even the general section could probably be thinned out and the focus redirected to fandom.) --Kyuuketsukirui 05:41, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
I think it makes sense to keep it separate as a subset of LotR, because the Hobbit Movies will have a whole set of fan responses. And yeah, definitely merge the other one here and make links to canon reference pages. --Msilverstar 23:32, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
Eh, I'm glad this one is now a subpage of LOTR (though I keep forgetting to link it correctly) but I don't really see merging Hobbit with The Hobbit. I mean, one is about a culture and a subfandom and the others about a different text, and one that will have a lot more fannish activity in the next few years. I also kind of don't like treating The Hobbit and The Silmarillion as parts of LotR fandom, but maybe that's just because I haven't read the Silm and don't like getting assigned to Silmarillion fans in challenges.  :D Ugh, it is complicated. --Sophinisba 00:14, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
