Well Glorfinel, we are glad that we found you too. We are looking forward to reading more of your posts. Welcome to the family.
I must say, as a fairly really new member, I have surfed this site a lot and I really like the community gathered here. Very cool people with casual and respectful, but fun attitudes. The Council Members are very friendly, in fact, I think that it was one of them that invited me to join when I commented on the coolness of the 100 qwestion quiz. The resources here are wonderful. This is my favorite site. I visit at laest once a day and I am never sorry to do so. So many different but thoughtful POVs. It's like looking into the facets of a Silmaril. Big Smile Smilie I am really glad to have found you all.

I don't think I can add much to all that's been said till now.You people are all great,and.....*drops a tear*...snifff...love you all.Talking in here is really helping,and,as Grondy said,I feel like family in here.

I agree with all of the wonderful comments about PT. It really is a great community. I really liked what Nell said, ''that we all need each other" that is so true. I really do need my PT friends. You are wonderful people that have really helped me though some rough times. Thank You.

Absolutlely Mellie! I also agree with what Gimli said about the Council Members being just like everyone else. Thank you PT!
Thank you, Princess_Luthien, that's very kind of you. We try hard to make this site what it is, but I think your initial thanks to Taz went to the right place. Without Taz, and all the time he spends holding this site together, the rest of us on the Council would just be headless chickens really.

And don't forget the site does not end with the Council. Every member who posts something on these boards is contributing something too. Without all of the members this site would lose its soul.
Maybe its because I was here before there was a council.. but one thing I always like about this place is that the council members are just like everyone else.... some sites you go to. those in charge seem to be a notch above the rest.... not necessarily by choice, thats just the way it tends to work... but I alway consider you guys to be the same as the rest of us!!!
Yes, I do agree with Gimli, all of you Council members act just like everyone else. And that's why I love this site and it's members!! Smile Smilie Tongue Smilie Big Smile Smilie Cool Smilie
We try harder to be hardly trying. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

Seriously though, Taz did the initial picking of the original council members and we picked a few more who were like minded to make this a fun place to visit, rather than just another stodgy old library filled with facts, dust, and cobwebs. Cool Elf Smilie
Woohoo! Thanks Dad! Wink Smilie
I'd like to be a notch above the rest, I like the idea, just cos I'm common as muck doesn't mean I can't be a notch higher does it? Alright, maybe it does. And this site would truly be nothing without it's marvellous membership. Keep on growing PT!

hmmmmm, you haven't been to my library, have you Grondy Big Smile Smilie ?
No, but then I would never assume that any library lucky enough to have you as the librarian would be stodgy, let alone filled with dust and cobwebs. I would expect it to be filled with fact, fiction, and fun. As for a library being old, well its physical age only means it has had more time to increase the number of books in storage rather than on the shelves, as there never is enough shelf space for all the new books being published each year.

I feel we at Planet-Tolkien are family. Happy Elf Smilie

That's the nice thing about a community, we all need each other and PT is not any different. Two things make this the best Tolkien site: a) the people and b) the content.
All of our members contribute to the content. So Thank-you to all 1595 of you!

Hear hear! Long live PT and all it's members! I love this place, and you know why? Cos it's great to be on a site with a personal touch. I feel I know each and every one of you. You are my online family, and I wouldn't want to miss you for the world. Thanks for being there!

And like Gimli said, if you've been here on PT before there was a council, you'd have noticed that it hasn't changed much, I mean, Taz has a bunch of great helpers, and the things that happen on the site are controlled and discussed, and a lot of new things happen, just because the council makes time for it. I'm sure we can all agree that, fantastic though he might be ( Animated Wink Smilie ), the fluffy fraggle couldn't have done this all by himself, and therefore I say: three cheers for the council and for the fraggle of course! Big Smile Smilie
Thank you for your kind words, Tommy. We can really use encouragement and support like that.
WELL, THANK YOU GUYS, IT IS NICE TO SEE THAT MY COMENTARY WAS POSTED YESTERDAY AND THER IS AN ANSWER TODAY,NOT EVERY SITE COULD SAY THAT....., THAT IS WHY I SAID WHAT I SAID. Smile Smilie

AND BESIDES,SINCE I AM NOT TO SKILLFULL WITH COMPUTERS,IT IS GREAT TO KNOW THAT THERE WILL BE SOMEBODY TO HELP.

IT IS A GREAT SITE.

Hi THINGOL77. Welcome to Planet Tolkien. Thanks for the kind words. You sound as though you've already spent a bit of time exploring the site. I'm pleased you enjoy it here. Smile Smilie
Hello Thingol! Good to see you around here! Waving Hello Smilie

I'm sure it's also thanks to Taz and the coucil (because they make this site so attractive) that we have so many new members! It's amazing to see how our ranks fill up every day! Big Smile Smilie
Welcome Thingol! I am glad you are enjoying the site so much! I have only been here three months (wow, it seems like ages and ages) and I have found all of what has been said to be true. It really does feel like home now. Big Smile Smilie

Greetings, THINGOL. Your pardon for not welcoming you sooner, but there are so many new members, it is hard to keep up. Big Smile Smilie

Your stats and stars increase according to the number of posts you make. Once you pass a certain number (50 I think) you will no longer be a stranger. We also have a 'post of the week' competition running each week for the post with the best content.

Don't be a stranger now!
Thingol,

Welcome to our wonderful little site. I am really pleased that you like it so much. I do to. This has become my second home. If i am not here, I am spending time with my real life family.

You can make some truly great friends here. I hope you discover as many as I have.

Thingol, I believe Taz may have been trying to tell you to use lower case. Upper case (capitals) is considered to be shouting in most regions of the internet. Big Smile Smilie

I am really glad that you have decided to post in the forum, THINGOL, and I look forward to reading more.
As Allyssa has already explained, it is the cap lock that is causing a problem. Unless you really, really want to get your point across by shouting, just normal lower case is considered best.
Enjoy the forum!

thank you Ally, and you rednell .Actually,since I rarely chat,and I have never posted anything in my whole life, i did not knew that,but i will try to keep that in mind. Big Smile Smilie

now for all you guys,that I have posted comentaries with capitals, I was not screaming, it was just I did not know.
thank you for comprehension. Wink Smilie Wink Smilie

Thingol,

I am glad that you are excited about being at PT. We all get excited about LOTS of things here. Just try to keep the caps lock off, and you will fit in fine.

For everyone else that is new. Welcome to the PT Forums. We are very glad you are here.
you know Melly?... it is nice to be here, cause even when no body knows you in person,you can feel there is another person interested on the same things as you.... it is very nice.

hey,i was wondering if there is a forum for everybody to know about each other, like family,jobs,hobbies or something else.... if not... would it not be a nice place to post comentaries or advises, or jokes?..... Big Smile Smilie

THANKS!!! Elf Winking Smilie

Hello there, Thingol! Nice to see you around! Waving Hello Smilie

Like everyone said, there's a lot to see on this site here, and there are more piccies from members to see than just the ones of the council Super Scared Smilie . Animated Wink Smilie

Anyway, have fun and I hope seeing you around.

Btw: I do realise you're not that new, but I haven't been around for a while, and I don't think we had met before, had we? Animated Wink Smilie
hi tommi,how have you been...., well actually ,we have not met,even though i have read several posts you have placed(interesting ones)...., well, see you soon i hope.... Big Smile Smilie
Hi Rhodry,
I am very glad that you have joined us. Big Smile Smilie

Hi Rhodry, welcome to Planet Tolkien. I hope you enjoy yourself here as much as I do.

btw, that wouldn't be Rhodry Maelwaedd of Aberwyn would it? He's got to be my favourite fantasy character of all time.
hi Rhodry, i wish you enjoy our site as i do Big Smile Smilie ....., it has become my virtual home Wink Smilie , and on time....., it will become yours, also.....,


btw, who is Rhodry?... Elf Smilie .., i heard an allusion about it ,but could you be more specifical about it?..... Wink Smilie
thnx.....if it is a novel i would like to read it....
I think that might be the Fire Dragon and the Golden Falcon, Rhodry. And yes, it's a real pain waiting for each one to be published. I've been doing it since the fifth book.
i think i need to get those books....., though it is going to be dificult (if not imposible) to get them in english....,i will try to translate them and to get them at least in spanish..... Wink Smilie

thnx for the explanation..... Smile Smilie
Grondy thinks this discussion has strayed from topic, take it to the taverns please. Elf Rolling Eyes Smilie
oops sorry grondy,i will....,i promisse .... Cyclops Smilie
*tear of joy* Shaking Head Smilie beautiful...simply beautiful!
I am kind of newbie here although I had the honour of meeting most of you guys(guys=all fans and creators)!
What can I say?What can I say I don't know...most of it was already said(and confirmed to be the truth)still praising you is never enough!
This is what I figured about you Genius Smilie :
You are a hard-working team which barely sleeps Cow Sleeping Smilie
You are friendly towards all visitors(and members) Angel Smilie
You make "me"(almost sure for the rest) feel equal(Hi Rednell Waving Hello Smilie )and that is something very rare...or in short you are "THE PERFECT TEAM"(Perfect team/Planet Tolkien- PT...makes you wonder doesn't it)!
I want to say:Keep up the PERFECT work and have fun Juggling Smilie

Yours truly
Calenthang(my new nick)
