Thanx for at least moving this thread to this new Forum!

[] Some pushing always helps people to get active, isn't it? []

Anyway, I think it depends on how you envision this new Forum, whether all threads I found should be transferred or that some should be left where they are.

I'd be very honored if I could do an introduction thread to this forum. [] I've waited for this so long. I asked WGW over half a year ago to start a language forum.

Hurrah! *dances*

I've asked him too Quendil. Would you like to do a sticky with me? I'd be happy to help.

Here's a list of possible forums from the Library:

Philological Inconsistencies in Tolkien's Writings
What was the burgler symbol Gandalf scratched on Bilbo's door?
Pronunciation of languages in Middle Earth
Was Tolkien the 'translator' of LotR?
Astronomical References
Why did Gandalf say "Yes, you can call me that." in Fangorn?

New Line Cinema's Lord of the Rings

Pronunciation
What did Gimli say in Elvish?
What does the ring say *
how do you pronounce it?
Favorite Elvish Movie Lines!
Elvish, anyone?
Tengwar Butchery
Tengwar Inscription on Sting!

Some on them are only slightly referencing linguistic issues but I feel that they are all applicable in some way or another.

(Edit: All movie threads moved except for those marked * - WGW)

Why would you want to move topics from the Library Council here? We don't put topics in the Library which relate to LotR in the forum for that, do we?

I've had a look through Other Tolkien Productions, and I can't see anything to be moved personally.

EDIT - The same applying to both the Gaming Forums as well.

I feel that Library threads that meet Linguistic interests should be listed in the forthcoming sticky thread. They are listed for reference, but they reside where they should.

Also, I haven't taken a close look at the Library threads in a while. Perhaps more than a few threads don't really belong there. If this is the case with one of the topics you list, it will be moved to this forum.

And another one: Elvish Class. Started by DLA himself who *hides from the Pony*.

Edit: And from the Ivy Bush: The Newt's Linguistic section, also by DLA.

Edit 2: Also from the Ivy Bush:
Music of Ilúvatar *
Aragorns last name
Learning Quenya

Edit 3: I found even some threads in the Floating Log!
Learning Elvish
Speaking Quenya....
Quenya Transliterator

Edit 4:
None from the Golden Perch.
From Bag End Auctions:
Elven tongues

Edit 5:
From the Green Dragon:
I Yessessë Genesis I in Quenya.

The only Forum left is the PP, I think. I won't come to that today. If someone else feels like searching through (a part of) it, feel free []
