It's a tough question, ladyoflegolas.
Hmm. Well I suppose when I first found pt, it was a little exciting to get that password and explore the forums and indeed find that there are some people responding to your post. I remember when I first logged in my username was Gandalf and Shadowfax or something like that. Lol! And I remember how Plastic started teasing me with my schizofrenia. :funnylaugh: So I changed my nick into something more comfy, and became what I am now.
And then the gender problems started... Lol! God I sure had some fun over here. And there were the water fights here at the forum and in chat. And in the meantime PT kept on growing, and more people arriving, Grondy became Taz's help, and then the council came and everything started to get more official (which was of course necessary with the loads of members that kept on knocking on the door).
I can say that in a (though small maybe) way, pt changed my life. I got to know what a wonderful tool the internet can be, met a lot of people I don't believe I would have met otherwise and found a way to talk about Tolkien and everything with people who are actually interested. :P:
I don't think I could do without a thing like pt. Honestly. Sound like an addict now, but hey, that's the way it is. I still can't believe how many wonderful people I got to know here, and who are still hanging around here. That proves to me that pt is not a passing thing. It's here to stay. (if it doesn't go down again, that is :P: ) And I don't think I'll ever get bored around here. I had loads of fun with you guys in the past, and I hope we will have some more in the future!
Question still is, what is my greatest personal PT moment? Like I said, I had many, but I very special to me was the way I got welcomed around here. So enthousiastic, and you really felt like a newbie, because everyone seemed to know each other already. But then you soon get to know everyone else, and you're there to welcome every other newbie. You feel you become part of this great group. And that was a really nice feeling. It still is, by the way.
