It's Founders Day Eve! What the heck does that mean?
Poll: It's Founders Day Eve! What the heck does that mean?
A great excuse to spend hours on TORn on April 26
Hooray! Time to get out my party clothes!
What Durin's Day was called before Tolkien decided Founder was a bad name for a dwarf...
Today is the day before the anniversary of the founding of the one website to rule them all, forged by the hands of the Founders themselves!
Beats me! I haven't founded no eves, sir, honest!
Other -- tell us what you are looking forward to on April 26!

ah, well, that just means you will be all set for tomorrow! [In reply to] Can't Post

..by the end of the day, many of us will be quite silly, not to worry!

Glad you will be able to join us -- look for the Founders Day posts, there won't be as many as we have had in some years, but there will be a few fun things going on to join in on.

ha! well, you might just have inspired the Founders Day theme song with that reply..... [In reply to] Can't Post

"Here we go a Found-a-ring, a Found-a-ring we go..."

Has a nice "one ring" to it, don't you think? Cool

See you at the party and thanks for the treats I hear you are bringing!

We need a Founders Day lyrics thread! [In reply to] Can't Post

Let's see ...

TheOneRing.net goes ever on and on
Originating from 4 Founders where it began
Now far ahead the site has gone
And we must celebrate, if we can.

Providing fans with Tolkien news
Until the Last Battle and Day of Doom
Where many friends and strangers meet
And wither then? Only the PTB can say.

Excellent brother penquin [In reply to] Can't Post

That'll set the moot mood. This is just what is needed, fresh spirit to enliven the holiday.

when all through the board
Not a creature was stirring
Not even the troll hoard
