Welcome BrianBoromir to Planet-Tolkien.
Hello Everubody!! I am new here. i live in sweden and i have read all tolkiens books. Only wonted to tell.
I hope you enjoy our happy family.
hello hello.. I am the local crazy dillusional dwarf.. dont mind me.. just passing through...
Hello again to everyone! Hope you enjoy yourselves around here. I'm quite sure you will.
My name is moonstar. I really appreciate you all letting me join your website. I just started reading tolkien this year, but I just loved the first movie. So I thought I'd read the books, and you know what. I loved the books even more than the movies. I hope I get to meet some of you so that you can tell me more about the wonderfull world of j.r.r. tolkien and Middle-earth!
Well welcome Moonstar to Planet Tolkien. I am Darous and if you want to meet us then visit chat. Someone is always in. So once again welcome and I hope you enjoy yourself.
Welcome to PT moonstar!!! I hope you'll enjoy it here, I love it!
Welcome to our forum Moonstar. We are glad to have you here.
Nice new avater Asteroth! Looks like Taz is able to get OTHER peoplles up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi to everyone who's new! I can't follow who's new and who's not anymore! I met Asteroth in chat yesterday, and because I'd never met him before I thought he was new and starting "advertising" for the forums a bit, but it turned out he'd been around for a few months now. lol So sorry if I think you're new when you're not. My mind's too small for all your names. And no, I'm not new. Been around for a while now, thanks.
Thanks Lady of Legolas your new avatar is nice too.
And welcome all newbies!! You won't regret comming here. We are a great bunch!
I'm not here. Nope nope. Not a bit.
I'm studying for exams, as you see.
I would never sit down and try to teach myself Elvish while working on a PhD. I would never have an attack of the fanfic Muse which may push my latest fit of procrastination over 100 pages before Elessar, or the writer, expires. I would never watch FOTR and TTT 7 and 9 times respectively in the theater.
I will, however, admit to reading LOTR every year since the actor who played That Elf was born.
(Confound the boy. I was well over my childhood Legolas fixation, and had moved on to flesh-and-blood characters like Sam. Then Mr. Blue Contact Lenses had to come waltzing onscreen carrying implements of destruction and muttering in Sindarin.
Also he shoots better than I do. Confound him, I say agan.)
Mayhap some of you have run across me elsewhere. Ever heard of "The Boy with the Bow?" or "The Kh‚zad-dum Tinies"? No? Great! I can foist them on a whole new set of people!
I will try to be good. But I do write far, far too much.*
Mae govannen, mellyn nŪn. Intelligent discussion, kindly mods, and Tolkien: what more could one desire? I'm glad I've found my way over to your side of the Sundering Seas.
*and frequently bollux up some elementary task like hitting "new post" instead of "reply". And so help me, I'm a moderator.
Tom Bombadillo, I've been here less than 24 hours! Taz had to fix my registration; my net burped just as I was finishing verification whoosiwhatsit.
I just yap yap yap so it seems like I've been here interminably.
(and if anyone can place THAT quote, you get a Z carved in your furniture of choice.)
Anyway, have a great time here, and if you get a chance, check out the Silmarillion Reading Group.
Look forward to seeing you around.
And what was that quip about "kindly" mods? heh...
Welcome Sepdet. From what I've seen of your posts, you don't talk too much. I rather enjoy reading them and hope to read many more.
A great big welcome to PT, Pippette. I hope you enjoy your visites with us. I sure have enjoyed chatting with you.

I'm a kinda new Tolkien fan, i've only read The Hobbit, FOTR and TTT so far, im currently reading ROTK. It's hardly anything compared to what a lot of you have read, i'm determined to catch up one day
