Hello all, I am an avid Tolkien fan since early childhood in the 80's, but am new to this site, I am really big into sports forums but have now branched out here, and to scified to enjoy some awesome middle arth discussion. :)

Nice to meet you all!

One question, why are there so many more views in The Hobbit forum when compared to the LOTR forum? Was this site not up and running until after the first trilogy? Just awfully curious, it would make sense that it would be the other way around.

Welcome Foe Hammer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hmmm good question. I think it's because the board was redone in 2007, about 2 years after LOTR wound down and 1 year before the Hobbit was announced. TORn has been around since 1999 (just had the 15th anniversary party). Everything before 2007 is called the old boards: for obvious reason LOTR dominates there rather than the Hobbit.

At it's heart TORn is a Tolkien fan site, but Sir Peter's movies do get a lot of attention.

Incidentally, for a good while before the first Hobbit movie was released in December 2012, "Off Topic" was the forum with the most posts.

I grew up in eastern Canada; French was a required course in school. [In reply to] Can't Post

I've never used it in all the decades since school, so I've already used a significant portion of my vocabulary.

which is the only officially bilingual province. Quebec is officially French, and the others are officially English.

French and English languages in Canada [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn't know that there were so many differences between canadian provinces for languages! I thought Quebec was bilingual and other provinces only English-speaking...

Being bilingual must be really convenient but I don't know if French is actually useful in your everyday life ^^.

me! [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, this is my first time on the message board of TORn, so i'll share a little about myself...
I've been a fan of the movies, books, and the like for years now.. I'm a 30 yr old female who lives in Georgia (USA) and I'm a proud mom to my six cats (I AM the crazy cat lady!).. hehe.. I have been a member of another website's message board for a looooong time now and have made a couple friends through there.. it's not very active anymore though.. i'd love to make even more friends; you can never have too many! So, anyways.. that's all that comes to mind right away.. if you might have questions, ask away.. I'm generally an open person..
Take care!

Welcome theodwyn! [In reply to] Can't Post

Glad you've decided to join us. This is a friendly place, though the Hobbit board does see its share of opposing opinions these days! If you need help or information about anything, the Site Rules, FAQ, and TORN Dictionary can be found in the Welcome section, and you can get answers to all kinds of TORN-related questions or problems by posting on the Feedback board. But mostly, dive in and have fun!

See you around the boards. Smile

Some tips on our layout [In reply to] Can't Post

Obviously, the Main Index shows you all of our forums, each dedicated to a different category of discussion. Most of us wander happily back and forth between them, joining in any conversation that seems interesting, but there are some who find they're most interested in one section and spend most of their time there.

You can change the way the forums look to you by going to Edit Profile (one of the rings at the top of the screen) and then Display Settings. For your Default Post Display, you can choose Flat (when you click on a thread, posts all load in a line, sorted by time stamp) or Threaded (posts display in outline form by subject lines, with replies to each post indented and you click on each post to read it). Default Forum View allows you to set the main forum display to Collapsed, which will only show subject lines of root posts until you click into the thread, or Threaded, where you can scroll down the page and see the subject lines in each thread before clicking into it.

That may sound confusing, but it's not hard to play around with the settings a little until you find the arrangement that suits you best. Our forum setup is a bit different than most and takes a little getting used to, but it works well for us.

Also, you may notice that threads don't "bump" here when people reply to them. There are reasons behind this. But if you want to see the threads with the most recent replies when you enter a forum, look at the top right of the green bar. You'll see Age (creation). If you click on "creation", it will toggle to "activity" and bring the active threads to the top. Don't click on "Age" though, or it will sort with oldest posts first and you'll find yourself reading threads from 2007!

Hope that's helpful. Smile

Hi, I'm TricksyHobbitses [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm an Aussie-turned-American living in New York, and an all-round nerd (math, physics, robotics, you name it ) as well as a Tolkien fan. I've been lurking here for a few months and lurked the old boards way back in the LOTR movie days but finally decided to join so I could geek out with everyone over the impending release of TBof5A. Can't wait for December Wink
