**FD – Welcome to TheOneRing.net's Founders Day &12th Anniversary Party!! Can't Post



Well, come on in!!

On April 26, 1999, TheOneRing.net (TORn) was officially registered and immediately led the pack for the place to go for news, pictures and discussions about everything Tolkien and Jackson. While our most excellent Founders (Corvar, Xoanon, Tehanu and Calisuri) shy from the spotlight to receive our thanks and praise, the Anniversary became our very own Holiday when we reached our 10th TORniversary in 2009!

Throughout the day there will be tributes, reflections and games galore to celebrate the wonderfulness of TORn. Watch for Party-related posts on Main, LotR Movie, Moot and here on Off Topic Discussion Boards. Feel free to share your own threads if you're so inspired :)

Oh... and I hear there's going to be Ice Cream!!!! *slaver, slurp* :D

CHEERS TO ONE AND ALL!!!!

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

Ice cream? [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll take Heath Bar Crunch - and some Lobster Butter for my youngest, please. (Yes, you really can get butter-flavored ice cream with lobster bits at a store in Bar Harbor, Maine!)

And we can raise our cones and toast The Founders! Praise them with great praise - and thanks! Heart

Twelve years! It is hard to believe I've been here for 7 of those years. [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, 6 and 3/4th, to be precise, but nevertheless... XD

How this website has grown! How I have grown with it, admittedly. The update in 2007 to the website was one of the best, IMO, in its growth cycle. And oh, these lovely forum boards! Heart

I cannot wait to see this website continue to grow. I am working on a whole new section for the website which will hopefully come... soon (tm). Definitely will have more time to work on it once finals have rolled on by and summer comes.

And there is still more work and growing for the website to do! Poor Lord of the Rings does not have cast/character pages anymore XD And I bet there are other things that can be done. I expect that they will come to pass as the years go on...

Love TORn!

A party! And ice cream! [In reply to] Can't Post

Happy Anniversary, TORn! Wow, 12 years! They grow up so fast. Evil

I've been here eight years this month -- nine if you count the year I lurked.

I'll have some cookies 'n' cream ice cream, please, preferably the Bluebell low-fat version (not that you're saving any calories, it's just that their lower-fat ice cream has a crisper texture to it that I like.)

Everyone join hands (well, not the hands holding ice cream cones, please) for the springle-ring!

* * * * * * *
Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?

A man may do both. For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it under the light of day!
