Anything above 24 is old.

Conveniently, the line is pushed one year ahead each year. []

I'm just not old. Go me. []

E: 30 IS a scary age. It sounds grown up. I hereby vow to be as immature at 30 as I am now. []

"Old" is 15-20 years older than one's present age. Most of you are mere mewling infants []

But to the point, Happy Birthday MT - lang may yer lum reek!

I've missed a number of my own anniversaries here - nine years, and often to be found lurking around the darker alley ways.

(Apologies for the quotation miscellany - answers on a postcard....)

It is nice to see a spurt of interest in this place in recent days, though I am hoping that I haven't caused the kiss of death in that by saying this. There was a time a few months ago that I was thinking these forums would die, but now I believe they are safe for the time been. Quite an achievement really in spite of Youtube, Facebook and Twitter! There are a couple of Trollz about, but this is the Internet, what do you expect?

Very true - on both points! When I was 30, the World Wide Web hadn't been invented yet ...

And I agree with Hamfast that it's nice to see the activity at MT speeding up again. []

I'm sure it's just a coincidence that overall board activity has increased at the same time I started posting more often again.  -

Well, you see, the amount of posts being made has a very direct correlation to the amount of "activity" on the board... so... []

I thought Minas Tirith would have died off in the years I was away, but I'm quite glad to see it isn't so. []

Well, everyone who posts increases forum activity. []

Also. Yes, Minas Tirith is definitely better than Facebook (to which I am addicted, unfortunately) or Twitter (where I haven't logged into my account in... a year? 10 months?). []

Also #2. I suppose I count as "old" to some, "young" to more, and a "mewling infant" to a few. []

I refuse to join FB or Twitter. Twitter sounds pointless and I've more respect for my information than to join FB. I do avoid it on principle, but I doubt I would ever use it anyhow. []

I haven't seen one either.
The first post shows that they haven't been made every year - so 2012 presumably doesn't have one.

We might find some other excuse for celebration, perhaps ...

You know, honestly, I forgot about it. Remembered earlier in the year, but obviously didn't make a note of it.

It's telling that no one else remembered until just now either. I'm not one for marking anniversaries much myself anyway, but there is no one in my circle of life that cares a whit about Minas Tirith, so no one is there to remind me.

I don't have much time to read, but whenever I pick up something and read to fill the time, it's Tolkien. But it's not often. I'm in the stage where it's comforting to know it's there, but I don't have to go there often.

When my kids get older and they take an interest, I'll have someone to talk about it with and an excuse to get into it all over again.

As it is with the reading, so it goes with the site. It's there for whoever wants it, and I'm glad for that. The history... the good discussions... Like most who have expressed their feelings, I feel better just knowing it's there.

Someday, I'll have the means to revamp the forum in the proper way that I want. Until then, we're here. A silent guardian. A watchful protector. A white city.
