CE-01: Yes, we should definitely include CE-EX-03

CE-EX-06: Looks good. I would simply remove CE-EX-24, especially since it has no basis in Tolkien's writings.

1. Agreed to the change ...

CE-01: If both of Aiwendil's suggestions are valid, I suppose we must choose for stylistic reasons. I prefer the first suggestion, starting with AAm.

CE-SL-01: I agree to Fin's latest change, and...

Wow, sounds like an exhaustive amount of work! Great job! Adding the White Mountains, the Hithaeglir and the Anduin River all sound reasonable. You're right, fixing Beleriand probably makes the most...

The Magic Isle & Tol Eressėa: Yes, keep Tol Eressėa, I was sloppy in my response.

Eastland or Easterness: You're right, it says "or".

The Magic Isle & Tol Eressėa : OK, after thinking about it, I agree to removing both of these so that our maps show one particular time period.

Eastland of Easterness: You're right, it does say...

Wow, I think the maps turned out great! Excellent work!

The removals from Map IV: I agree with what you removed. I would keep the Shadowy Isles as it stands.

LO-AF-58.5, LO-AF-60.5 and LO-AF-60.6: I agree to these changes.

I'm glad we are including the Third Age material. To those comments I don't respond to, I agree:

DP-10b/10.5/11.5: I agree with ArcusCalion's "After Pengolodh departed Middle-earth".

LO-29: I...

Wow, that sounds like a lot of work! That's really cool, Fin! Responding to your points.

1. That seems reasonable to start. We can try to finalize what we wish to change/include, and if we wanted,...

I'm not saying ours would be a summary of an in-universe Lammas, but that it would be based on the in-universe text. In which case additional material about the Third Age has been added to it. Maybe...

To those comments I don't respond to, I agree.

LO-18: OK, I get it now.

LO-40: I think "children of Finarfin" is probably the safest choice. Although I do like the sound of "Finarfinians".

Great job Arcus! Another great chapter!

LC-01: I agree with Fin in keeping "Preamble"

LC-02: I don't think this title is necessary. A line break clearly shows the end of the preamble.

The usage of World: OK, I agree with you guys, we should just leave "World" and "world" as unspecific. It would indeed be needlessly editorial.

Amb-02.2 and Amb-02.3 are great additions which definitely clear things up! Well done Fin!

I agree with the ambiguous "Many years" instead of specifically dating the text, since Tolkien never seemed to come to a satisfactory date which makes sense. I only have a few comments:
