Ross: For some reason the program expects you to vote before you log in; however, I was able to vote after I was logged in--maybe it was my administrative status that let me do that. I do know you only are supposed to be able to vote once per day.

RE: your Holliday Poll suggestion, we did a similar one covering only Middle-earth, but as yours covers all of Arda, I think you may some day see it used, probably not until next year though, as it would probably confuse the movie viewers who were not familiar with the Silmarillion. Happy Elf Smilie
I like the latest one though! Very Big Grin Smilie

Errmm let's see. If I'm not very original, please forgive me but I have this huge headache and I'm trying to think which would cost me a lot of energy without the headache anyway. Good Morning Smilie

If you were Frodo, what would you do first?

1) kick Gandalf really hard where it hurts for sending Bilbo on his adventure, thus creating the whole Ring story
2) kick Bilbo really hard where it hurts for finding the Ring in the first place and making you his heir
3) find a girl at last to clear all suspicions on the gay thing
4) get rid of Sam for the same reason as 3
5) write a book about your adventure and thus become rich
6) visit Mt Doom again to see if you really can't get your precioussss back
7) visit Mordor again to check if Sauron's really gone
8) call Peter Jackson to complain about your role in the trilogy (of course it's too small)
9) hire a secretary to answer all those fan letters for you
10) move from Hobbiton to Rivendell (where it's all nice and quiet now that Elrond's gone
11) stay at home nice and quietly for ever to just forget all about everything

Could only come up with 11. It's probably just dull anyway, but hey, I tried. Big Laugh Smilie
Yes Rednell, I felt Tommie's deserved something for her poll questions, but seeing all the other threads we had to wade through today, I reserved (limited) my words of praise to just the single smilie. Sorry to have troubled you unnecessarily. Got The Blues Smilie

And Tommie, just because their length is too long for the P-T poll, doesn't mean they aren't worth while, it just means we can't fit them into that venue. Smile Smilie
Very Big Grin Smilie Bust-ed Grondy!

Yeah I thought they would be. Just thought I'd have a go. Orc Grinning Smilie
ROFL! It's a shame, I think it'd be a very popular poll too!
Meanwhile Allyssa still need some ideas for the next poll. We are nearing 500 votes on the current one, at which time the new one should replace it. Come on, all we need is 10-12 short worded nominees.

Look Around Smilie Hrmm. Poll's gone, hasn't it? lol Don't know for how long it's been gone, but it's the first time I actually noticed. Big Laugh Smilie
Hrmm. Poll's gone, hasn't it?
It should still be there at the bottom of your menu bar on the Homepage Tommie. It's still there for me.

Anyone else having problems finding/using it?
It is still ok, but only comes up on the homepage, if that's your problem Tommie.
I didn't see it either, but I do when I'm on the homepage.
Yes, the poll only shows up when you are on the Homepage. It has been that way for ages, maybe even longer. Happy Elf Smilie
rofl! Yes it's there now that you mention it. Big Laugh Smilie

Stupid, silly me! Shaking Head Smilie
The Council have been kicking around a few ideas for a new poll, based on a member suggestion. We could do with a little help with some additional responses though, if anyone has any.

Idea 1: Who is your favourite character left out of the movies? Tom Bombadil, Glorfindel, Lindir, Cirdan, E and E, Radagast...

Idea 2: Who is your fav. small role? Barliman, Hama, Theodred, Harry the Gatekeeper, Celeborn, the obviously deranged (j.k. Wink Smilie )drunk outside The Prancing Pony, the Minas Tirith Librarian...etc
What's your favourite track from the movie-cd's?

1. May it be
2. Gollum's song
3. Bridge of Khazad-dum
4. The riders of Rohan
5. The shadow of the past
6. The Uruk-hai
7. Flight to the ford
8. Helm's deep
9. A journey in the dark
10. The Hornburg
11. The breaking of the fellowship
12. Evenstar

As for additional responses:

idea 1: Goldberry, Deagol, Mablung and Damrod

idea 2: no further ideas really

But those are great ideas, very original ones! Thumbs Up Smilie
I like those ones too Allyssa, especially the first one.
I just posted Tommie's best CD track poll.

Thanks Tommie

Now, if anyone has any constructive ideas for another good poll, please pass them on to Allyssa.

[Edited on 26/8/2003 by Grondmaster]
How about,

To you, what is the most important or significant theme/element in the Lord of the Rings?
1. Hope and endurance
2. Loyalty and devotion
3. Mercy and pity
4. Fate and the significance of choice
5. Friendship, compassion, and love
6. Hospitality and kindness
7. Resisting temptation
8. Redemption and sacrifice
9. Bravery and heroic deeds
10. Other

You could probably edit it a little to make it fit, if you choose to use it.
I like that , Arco. =)
that would be the most relevant poll ever!great idea.
I like Arco's suggestion very much and was going to put it up, but couldn't find the controls to change the poll, so have PM'ed Tarrant for help with this.
Cool Elf Smilie Arco's poll is now on the home page. Thanks Arco and Tarrant.
Great poll! Thumbs Up Smilie Hard one though, but still a great poll!
I have a suggestion for a new poll Grondy.

"Out of the following characters which one would you like to walk in his/her footsteps and accomplish their deeds?

Example: I would like to take the place of T’rin and become reknown for his mighty deeds! Too bad I couldn't skip that whole incest part of his life, but you're stuck with the whole nine yards for the character you choose.


I wanted to keep adding more characters but I realize there must be a limited amount of space for options to pick from. Maybe just change the Poll and make it 1st/2nd Age only? and have a decent selection of characters from 1st/2nd Age. Next time it can be changed to 3rd/LOTR Age characters. I dunno it's up to the Poll Master.
