Happy new Chinese year!
I would like to wish all of my Chinese visitors a very happy new year. I hope you get to spend it with family and friends, with good food on the table.
As the elves would say,
ná alya i vinya loa polcava
ná alya i vinya loa polcava
Happy New Pig-Year
I think it is time for another update. Today, a few minutes ago, I committed the 100th change since I embarked on the mission to re-engineer the front-end. The discuss feature is still the subject of my current implementation work, and I have quite a bit of work still ahead of me.
Remaining components are: create, edit and delete posts, and support commenting on arbitrary elements on the website.
Work continues... Thank you for your patience.

Welcome to Parf Edhellen! Thank you for your interest, and please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. ☺️
Thank you Tamas. I agree with this translation.
I would like to give a short update on what I am presently working on. Some of you may have noticed that my activity lately in the community and on our Twitter account has been limited. The reason for this is honestly that my work on the next version of Parf Edhellen is still ongoing. It turned out to be way more work than I had initially anticipated, mostly because I keep figuring out "great" new features as I go along.
The latest of these features is what I call (internally) for discussion groups. These groups are essentially categorizations of related discussions to help you more easily find content that interest you. These groups are presently configured by an administrator, and I have decided to go with the following at launch:
- Profiles: Discussions and comments on peoples' profiles.
- Contributions: Feedback on approved, rejected and pending contributions.
- Glossary: Discussions about glosses in the dictionary, including approved contributions to the glossary.
- Phrases: Discussions about phrases composed by Tolkien and the community.
- Miscellaneous & more: Discussions about everything else, with no clear association to a specific part of the dictionary.
Some of these groups will be entity locked, meaning that if you comment on, for an example, a gloss, your comment will create a discussion thread (or contribute to existing discussion thread) within the Glossary discussion group. This will hopefully make the discuss section, which I think is a very important part of our community, easier to navigate.
Let me know if there is a group you would like me to add (or remove for that matter - let's debate!)
So where am I at currently? Well, with the workload growing exponentially (almost, anyway...) I am still working on discuss. The following parts remain:
- create /edit / delete posts
- finalize styling of the timeline on peoples' profiles
- adjust API and system event handlers to respect discussion groups
I expect all of these things will probably be done within the next two weeks.
Concurrently, I have discovered that the contribution functions does not work very well. They will be up next, probably first glosses and thereafter phrases.
Finally, I just want to let you know that I am always looking for github.com contributors. Even something so small as a single React component would be immensely useful, so do not hesitate to reach out if you think you can assist.
With that, I thank you as always for visiting and contributing to Parf Edhellen whether it be with discussions, inquiries, or simply browsing the dictionary and phrases.
Raw data / Api ?
I agree with Ríon! I am very impressed!
Raw data / Api ?
This sounds very interesting indeed! Can you share some of the application's output with us?
Merry Christmas! 🎄
I hope you have had a great Christmas day with family and friends! And with the end of the year drawing nigh, this is a time for reflection and reconciliation. To that end, I wish you the best.
Finally, I would like to thank you for your continued support of this community.

May two stars shine upon you.
I have just returned from a two week vacation abroad. So with my return, my work continues. The current status of the project is this:
I am still working on Phrases. It is the single-most complicated feature on this website, and I am making it better. At this point, all basic functionality has been implemented, but it needs to be optimized for devices, and there are still a few minor bugs I need to fix.
Next, I will be tackling Discuss and Flashcards in that order. Neither of the two are as complex as the Glossary and Phrases.
Aldaleon: Newer/Older buttons switched in Discussion navigation
Oh, whops! You are right! 😂 Thank you for pointing it out — I will fix it in the next major release.
