This is something that I have been musing over in the back of my mind for a few weeks, but now I'd like to bring it out into the open. A Google search with the words 'tolkien fansite' brings up TheOneRing.net, which has LOTR and Hobbit news as well as forums, which to be honest aren't very user-friendly (i.e you have to click on each post to see it, so it becomes frustrating).
Then there is the Lord of the Rings Fanatics Plaza, which I regret to say is a bit more active than this site (but it is still almost as non-user-friendly as TheOneRing.net).
Then there is a Wikipedia article - Wikipedia, I ask you - about Tolkien fandom.
Then there is Tolkien Trail, a site I feel nowhere near as good as this, not very active, no RPGs, and again (this seems to be a recurring issue) a bog-standard interface. It even has whole mini-forums dedicated to Harry Potter and Star Wars! *shakes head in despair*
Then there is Ringbearer.org, a fairly good site with a forum, games, and RPGs, but I feel that Planet-Tolkien still has an edge over it.
Finally, we come to our humble home on the list. Is there any way that anyone knows of to change this? I feel that if we were on top, or at least near the top of the list, it would allow possible new members to see and explore our site first.
