***Founders Day - Happy Birthday from *** Can't Post

I saw Bilbo sitting outside on his bench, smoking a pipe on this beautiful day. I asked him if he had something to say to TORn on this 15th anniversary. And this is what he told me:

My dear Founders and Admins and my dear TORnsibs and TORnadoes, and TORnfolk, and TORnfriends, and First-agers, and Second-agers, and Third-agers, Forth-agers, Newbies, Oldies and Lurkers.

Also my good de-lurkers that I welcome at last to Founders Day. Today is TORn's fifteenth birthday! Yes, the founding of this site happened fifteen years ago today!

I hope you are all enjoying yourselves as much as I am!

I shall not keep you long. I have started this thread for a purpose. Indeed, for Two Purposes! First of all, to tell you that I am immensely proud to be part of it all, and that fifteen years is too short a time to have such a wonderful and excellent web place.

I haven’t seen half of TORn half as well as I should like, and I remember less than half of TORn half as well as it deserves.

Secondly, to especially celebrate the Founders. I should say: OUR Founders. For it is, of course, also for them that we throw this party... FOUNDERS. We salute them and thank them for all their work. Without them, this place wouldn’t be here, we’d be just reading our book, watching movies, maybe even have forgotten it all, if I may use the expression.

It is indeed, if I may be allowed to refer to ancient history, the anniversary of the founding of TORn by Xoanon, Tehanu, Calisuri and Corvar, though the fact that we would be celebrating it fifteen years later hadn’t occurred to them. Their only plan was to get started, so fifteen years seemed very far away. The start was amazing; however, they did run into some challenges with studio execs while most of us weren’t there even to say “thag you very buch”. I now repeat it more correctly: “Thank you very much for starting this great website
”.

What would your favourite character have to say to wish TORn, the Founders, Staff and all your fellow TORn-celebrators a happy fifteenth birthday? Please do share below.
