It all sounds great, Taz! My, you have changed a lot here in the past what, half hour? You keep amazing me! Big Smile Smilie
Of course, I am still a member of the council Animated Wink Smilie
Big Smile Smilie I hope we will still see you around sometimes Taz
Actually I have been working on it 'offline' for days Wink Smilie I trust you like it? Opinions, design cool huh?
I love it. The brown coloured forum takes a while to get used to, but it's great, yeah! Big Smile Smilie
your's is brown? mine's green...

I like this a lot Taz...good job! (as always...hehe) Big Smile Smilie (btw, I really like the clicking on the smilies to put them in the postBody thing Cool Smilie )
hey why am I a stranger again? I'm almost to 500 posts! Very Sad Smilie
The user ranks are messed up at the moment, will fix later tonight Smile Smilie
Don't worry chika, even Plastic is a stranger now. Big Smile Smilie

And mine is still brown. Is that meant to be, Taz?
Yes, I am working on the other themes now, they should all be brown.
How much stranger am I then Tom?
Fantastic Idea Taz! I pledge to help out as much as I can.
Wow.... Am I on the same site? Has someone slipped something into my drink?
Take a little getting used to, but it looks good, and as long as everyone's still here, that's the main thing.
Was that a prophesy when I mentioned to you that I wondered how you managed to run the site on your own?
Wary Smilie omigod...omigod! Where am I? I'm Sceeeered! j/k
I love it! I know my rating is stranger but I've been visiting PT for a month now, I just haven't been posting! I absolutely love this site and now it's just gotten better! The people here are what makes the site so I don't think a facelift and upgrades will hurt anything. Dumb question: can we still call it planet tolkien? Paranoid Smilie
Of course, the domain still exists and so will PT Smile Smilie
Okay, three hours later and only waiting for five minutes to get the home page up instead of twenty to get half a page, I finally made it here. Having broadband at my end doesn't seem a help today at least for TF, it worked for PT. I suppose the neat graphics has been the slow-down cause. Sad Smilie

Any I love the new look! Smoke Smilie It is beautiful. Cool Smilie

Well done Taz Exclamation Smilie

Few! well I am glad Big Smile Smilie
I got used to it already. I've been here yesterday for about two hours, and now I'll be here again for the next hour. I feel quite at home! Big Smile Smilie

I love it love it love it love it love it! Big Smile Smilie
WOOHO! Pary Smilie
I think someone is happy here! :pary

Well, you should be. And proud of your work. Dunce Smilie
Nice Work Taz. Big Smile Smilie

Hey, did I mention that I was here for the great historic moment of TolkienFan.net being born? I got quite a feeling of awe as the new era began. Very dramatic and exciting wasn't it Tommi? I felt quite privelidged and honoured.

Now that I have gotten used to it all, I rather like it. I sometimes find it hard to adjust to change (curse my elven blood!) but I admit that sometimes new is for the better. Smile Smilie Thumbs Up Smilie


Just one little thing.....any chance of getting that picture of Viggo back? Really liked that. Angel Smilie
Ha Ha Ha Smilie

(Grondy thinks Taz meant to say, thank you.)

[Edited on 13/12/2002 by Grondmaster]
Yeah, I liked the old logo too. But the new one is even better! Big Smile Smilie

Was I here when it all happened? I think I was, now that you mention it yeah. It was quite a shock at first, cos I thought I'd landed on the wrong website! Shocked Smilie
It's now possible for everyone to comment on news articles so... lets seem some people!!! Big Smile Smilie
Wasn't that possible in the past too? Duck Smilie
For members yes, guests no. And as I have been making extra effort to add comments, yes it's new :-)
Police Smilie Animated Wink Smilie
You never cease to amaze me, Taz! I like it.

You do us proud, Taz! Big Smile Smilie

(Grondy move your suggestion down to the Suggestion Box.)

The Council will be a team of people (not all of which have been chosen yet) who will manage the website on a daily basis, monitoring added content, coming up with new ideas and basically steering the community in the right direction. They will not have Tolkien based names and will still go by username as the people who are picked will already be well known around the site.


Hey Taz, surely Grondy should be on that Council. His name has even been turned into a verb now. Like Rednells post above, it got "Grondied". Big Laugh Smilie
It was 42 who came up with it, and I laughed my *ss of when I first read it. Very Big Grin Smilie
hey wait.... i have a tolkien based name.. does that mean i cant be a member of the council... Very Sad Smilie


not that i had been asked anyways!

Hey thanks Grondmaster! Big Smile Smilie
Haven't been here for a few days and now I'm back the place looks much different. A refreshing change, the site looks great.

So that means pretty much everyone (even Grondy :verysadSmile Smilie is not going to be part of the council? But I guess Plastic and Allyssa will be in it then, right? Big Smile Smilie

Perhaps Taz just meant they will be given a new name or sth, but they can still use their old usernames? Question Smilie
Tolkien based names and the council

I think what Taz meant was that council members will not be given titles like "Elrond" or "Gandalf", as has been done elsewhere. It was thought that it would be better if familliar names were retained so that everyone knows who everyone is. You will have noticed the "council member" title under the usernames at the tops of member's posts.

Taz has also mentioned something about getting a Council Member List up, but I am not sure when. Probably when some members stop being shy about posting photos of themselves Wink Smilie Angel Smilie
Now who could you possibly be refferring to Alyssa? Wink Smilie
ah right.. that makes sence.. ie.. tolkien based names....

hey, that means i still have a shot then! Tongue Smilie hint hint.... Big Smile Smilie

silly newbie. Big Laugh Smilie
Ha Ha Ha Smilie

Just thought of something funny, if "Grondy" can now be used as a verb as well as a noun, that makes Grondy a - wait for it - a Gerund.

Its true. Learned it in editing. Tongue Smilie
Big Laugh Smilie


(I was going to edit out this post as it only contained a single smilie, but seeing as how I was the "Gerund" of Allyssa's joke, I felt a response was required.)
