Hmmm... who's this Dawson King who likes our Facebook page? One of our members, perhaps?
I'm also running a PT Fan Page advert on Facebook which is pending review.
Dawson King = Fornac?

Or you wouldn't mention him Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
Oi you two! Less of the detectives and more of the clicking "I'm a Fan" and "Share" buttons I
First of all, I'm not Dawson. But perhaps more pressingly, Tarrant, you appear to have made TEN MILLION POSTS!!!!!!!! AAAAAHHHH!!!!! HOW?!?!? HOW HAS THIS HAPPENED?!?!?!
I reckon that's wrong, I've definitely made more.

Hehe. Rank does have its privledges. Smile Smilie
Thorin Oakenshield has kindly joined Planet Tolkien's team of volunteer staff and will be administrating our new Facebook Page. I think we can expect great things from him and I look forward to following his updates. Thanks Thorin Moderator Smilie
Do you mean that he's a Council member? Because I don't see the writing beneath his avatar.
I like the idea of a Facebook page, but now one can tell that all the people who have 'liked' it are members exposing their names.
If you want to connect with me on PT send me a PM Fornac. Also I don't think it polite to post SIan's name here without her permission Smile Smilie

He's not a Council member, not yet anyway, that takes time and lots of servitude Good Morning Smilie

The purpose of the Facebook Page is mostly, to attract new members to the website.
Fornac, I realized people would recognize my avatar and I don't mind. Several of us have been Facebook friends already and enjoy the same fine company in another venue Smile Smilie

Thorin is a very good choice for the page care-taker ! And I'm glad to see you back, Thorin!
Sorry Sian... I didn't think when I did it.

I created a new account

Already with 70 likes, this will definitely shoot up our visitors. I haven't used Twitter though, but I'll use Facebook, which reminds me, I should go on it and become a fan Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
You can also 'Like' the blast from the page from time to time and share it from to your home page! Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
I noticed in the thread Taz has created a Twitter page for PT, as well. I am not familiar with Twitter at all. Facebook is challenging enough. :P
Is anyone here a Twitter follower? Is it worth joining and tweeting for the ordinary old person? :P
I do only Facebook Rednell. I don't think I'll have enough time to manage an account on both platform. The facebook group is coming along nicely. We have got pass 100 likes now Smile Smilie

(oh and the Online/offline indicator is broken again)
I really like the PT logo on the Facebook page. I was thinking that it might be nice to sell things with that image on them through Cafe Press.. I'd certainly buy a bumper sticker! Any thoughts on this?

Actually, there was a time when PT had merchandise through Cafe Press. I have a very cozy hoodie with the logo you mentioned. I love it. Smile Smilie

hmm, Facebook eh? I guess it had to be to keep us sharp and in the know. But it seems so un middle-earthy somehow.  Smile Smilie Still, anything that gets people to see the beauty of this place and join is okay by me. My last two account on Facebook were hacked so I gave it up. I had Thorin and Sian and others, Mellon for one on my page and so enjoyed talking to them and seeing them face to face. And I agree that our dear Thorin will rock our socks off with his intelligent approach and dedication to detail in helping forward our awesome sight.

Let's get this going again, for our new members! Smile Smilie
