I'm curious to know how each of you first found your way to Minas Tirith.

One of my first guests was just randomly typing in Tolkien names and found me. That was before I was really advertising or even open! It was fun hearing about how people just stumbled upon it, like an oasis in the desert.

Nowadays, I suspect most come from 25 Hobbits or TORN or word of mouth. Still, It would be useful to know what has been the best method of advertising.

Someone on another message board mentioned this place so I cruised on over to check it out. That was in the days when the default icon for messages was the thumbs down . Not many citizens here yet either.

Well, first I found 25 Hobbits through a banner at frodo.net, my web e-mail site. I'm not sure why anymore, but your site was the first and only site I checked out at the time. I do remember that you weren't in the top 10. I'm one those people that likes to explore the less popular sites on purpose.
Since then, of course, I've done my best at trying to keep you in the top 10. Not many surfers are as oddball as me. Your site is one of the best.

Sir, reporting as ordered.
I was actually doing a search for some nice pictures of Minas Tirith, because a friend of mine was willing to paint a mural of it on my wall. I saw this address and thought there must be some pictures here. Imagine my dissapointment when there wasn't. However the lay out interested me and never having been on such a sight before I read some posts. I'm afraid it was Snowdog who got me to stay. His posts seemed funny so I thought I'd join. Silly me though I forgot to write the address down and being on the Uni's computer no History, so I too had to go to 25 Hobbits, and there I found you in the top ten. I've since bullied Arzok into joining.

I was at a danish Tolkien-site, when I found a "vote-link" to 25hobbits. There I found you this, at the 10# rating, I think, actually

Gee it was so long ago.. August and I think I was number 3! I actually came across the site in a search in May when Tolkienonline switched from UBB to Cold Fusion BBsoftware. There were like two posts and it looked alot different. Guess I should have signed up then but I noted it as a "work in Progress" site and bookmarked it. In August a bunch of BS was going on amongst some posters on Tolkienonline and I saw I had this site bookmarked so I registered and opened Snowdog's as the first post in the Prancing Pony Forum. I put the link on my signature for awhile on Tolkienonline and many familiar names started showing up.

Ok, I went and changed my signature there and put a subtle link in a short saying.

I actually didn't come through 25 hobbits! I was messing around, found the Tolkien movie site site by accident, then tried several city names... Behold! Minas Tirith! The chief city of Gondor!

I first found Minas Tirith by exploring the Barrow Downs website. From there I went to the 25 Hobbits website, and I have been going on down the line of Tolkien sites. This is an incredibly good site, by the way!

Well, it all started out at TORN where I heard about 25 Hobbits. I was bored one day and decided to check out some of the sites that were on there. Minas Tirith was #1, so I went to it...and the rest is history.
