So taz you started it and the other council members just were visiters to the site and decided to become council people??
Oh and another question what happened to the site it's all different!!!
The council members or should I say, to start with, 'member'. Were people who I asked to help administrate around the forum and help with gathering LotR Movie News sources. At some point we came up with the idea of "Council Members" and from there on the idea grew.
The website is being redesigned as the previous layout was thought to be a bit confusing.
