I think I have not yet posted in Here. I found the SIte once before but could not figure out how it worked. Then I met Eärendil at the Tolkien Chat, and he invited me back. So I gave it another chance. I am happy to have figured out by now how to work this board.

Well, a bit of an old Thread, but to answer the question. I'm not sure I can quite remember. I did used to lurk quite a bit in the old days before I finally plucked up the courage to register. But as to how I found it in the first place, I'm not sure. It was definitely in the time of the movies, so I suppose there must have been plenty of activity here and I was just goggling Tolkien names randomly to find interest.

But then why did I stay and keep looking here as opposed to other sites? I'm not sure. Maybe it was just that there where people here critical of the movies at a time when everyone else was loving them and I did think even then, hang on remember the person that wrote the tales in the first place! Maybe it was just because it's quite a user-friendly site, and I still think this despite the fact that it is a little old-fashioned nowadays, but I sometimes think that some of the super-modern ones are a bit tricky to navigate, and I like the colour-scheme here, it is amazing how so many of the facebook sites for example have colour schemes where I can hardly make out the writing!

I suppose since then, I've just gotten used to people and have stayed. And seen as it's a little time-consuming to be on too many chat-sites at once I get used to this one.

By the way, looking at the start of this thread, and I wonder if anyone here knows, what was 25 Hobbits?

It was a site that listed a whole bunch of Lord of the Rings sites. The more people visited, the higher they ranked on the site. If memory serves me? MT was numero dos on the day I found it there.

I don't remember what happened to it...Does anyone?

Lists of sites that rank that way don't seem as popular anymore...

Through a google search for Lord of the Rings forums. I read through the posts when I had time and finally decided to join.

So, do the Balrogs have wings? []

And while we're at it, what happened to the Entwives? []

Gil-Galad pointed me here many, many moons ago when I was about thirteen. I was a n00by little LotR movie fangirl, but Minas Tirith taught me to appreciate the literary aspect. [] And, now I'm back.

Good to see you back, Dianthelle!
I remember you as one of those who would visit the Green Dragon at times. Might we see you there again?
Snowdog is doing some updating, and I for one have a story that could take new writers.

I am definitely down for getting dirty with the Green Dragon again, I was going to inquire about the RP situation, here, but was vastly unsure who to inquire to. Now I know!

For the RP situation - read the dates of last posts in the Green Dragon ... []

The reason, I guess, is that most of the active RPers have stopped coming to MT - so having one returning is a great encouragement. []

My RP is the Road to Rivendell, btw. Read it if you like, and PM me with questions if it's too confusing.

I found it the usual way... youtube. But I left when Singolo and SSA singled me out. I never could understand why he bullied me away. My race I think. I overdosed then.. but the impossible happened. People found me under a tree and I woke up in the hospital. I was so disappointed to be alive.

So say you were a young fan, and were perhaps ten years old, then as The Sil was published in 1977, then you are about 45 years old.

Aren't you a bit old for this kind of behaviour?

edit: Of course trolls should be kept busy until the first light of day, as that is presumably your race.
