Thread: The New Planet-Tolkien.com
<<  
My name is Ana, and I live in Mexico (Chihuahua City, to be more accurate). I really enjoy your website, being that I'm a BIG fan of Tolkien's literature.
Congratulations on your work, and keep it up!!. please.....
I just noticed that in many threads the initial (opening) post is missing now. Examples: some threads initiated by me in "Characters": Beren, Faramir, Turin son of Hurin. Will these initial posts be retrieved, or are they definitely lost?
Myself and Grondy have been working at restoring the missing posts in the Silmarillion Reading Discussion section and have now completed all twelve assignments. I have since restored a few other opening posts elsewhere too, but it is a slow, labourious process. With over 2000 threads on the board, many will not get completed. Personally, I am concentrating the time I have available to move those posts lost in the Tolkien sections, rather than those posts lost in the various taverns. Even so, for the time being it is only the more interesting/vital posts that are being restored.
I'm not sure if this is the place I should be for this, but I followed the link in the 'welcome' mail that I received.....
Er.. That was about 1/2 hour ago as I started reading all these threads(?) in this section!
I think my purpose was to comment on something you (Tarrant) said in that mail... It was about the possibility of some members leaving now that the films were over.... And something you said about members who appreciate Tolkien's work & not just the commercial stuff...
Can I just say - Being a 'newbie' - I don't know what the site was like before but I like it as it is! The wee snags that come up don't bother me too much as I understand it's all new & work in progress - Best of luck with it.
Any hoo - my point....... I actually was a fan of Tolkien B4 the movies (since I was about 12) and as much as I thought Peter Jackson did the films well, I could never forget where it all came from, or rather, from whom - That Genius fella - JRRT!!
So, I suppose I just wanted to let you know that there is at least one wee woman out there (me) who has joined after the films but not because of them. Just glad to find others out there like myself &, even more so, people who I can learn from, regarding LOTR etc.
That's it! Sorry about the longevity of this thread(?) < Am I using the right word?!?
Take care, all.
Keeps getting better and better...
I just have 1 lingering problem though. I would like to see previous posts under the post I am currently working on so that I could read, select and quote things easier.
I like the "what are the message board post" thing, but if it could be a link or a hide-expand menu it would be cooler!
Thank you, and take your time!
And I haven't been logged off once!
And page numbers at the top...... lovely job, taz.
So far, I like very much. Much easier to navigate.
I have given you all 20 pieces of mithril on top of your existing total to make up for the bug.
And I haven't been logged off once!
I've been using a different browser for a while now to overcome this problem so haven't noticed any difference. There seems to be an absense of many of the old members, however, which I thought was possibly due to this logging-out problem. Hopefully (fingers crossed) if Taz has managed to sort out the problem, we will see many of them return to us.
I must admit, when I saw the new design I almost went into shock. I'd just spent a week and half off-line with PC troubles and the first place I came to when I got it fixed was here (naturally). When everything looked so different to how I had left it, I assumed my machine was still playing up.
Looking good though, Taz. It's getting better all the time.
For the mithril, feel like a grubby street-urchin n that..."please sir can i have some m..." *smack*
"NO YOU MAY NOT YA DIRTY LIL SNAGA!"
A softer chair now, and I could live in here.. Any spare room Vee?
I still keep getting logged out, though less often than in the past.
