We have 9,900 Registered Members on TORn!!! Can't Post


Check your calendars and keep an eye on that count! It could be we'll hit 10,000 members over the next few weeks! IF NOT SOONER!

Well Done, TheOneRing.net! The greatest Tolkien/Jackson-lovers site EVER!!! *tosses confetti*

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Coincidence [In reply to] Can't Post

That only means something to creatures with five digits on each hand, totaling ten with which to count.

I think ducks, The Simpsons, and math majors would not think it so special to be impressed.

the elves used base-12 iirc [In reply to] Can't Post

Don't have any of my books with me so can't look it up, but I seem to remember that.

For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars, and so on -- while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man, for precisely the same reasons. -- Douglas Adams

Per my April prediction... [In reply to] Can't Post

Around the most recent anniversary of the new boards in April, I predicted we'd hit 10,000 users by mid-August using the post-AUJ, slightly slower sign-up rate. Seeing as how we've had 88 new users sign up in the last month, it looks like the end of August, into the beginning of September is a more likely estimate - unless something exciting happens like another trailer or another vlog. Still, we should be well over 10,000 users by the time DoS opens!

Incredible! CoolLaugh

Great News... [In reply to] Can't Post

Hopefully there's more fans of the talking purse amongst them...

-I'm not to going to argue, though I do feel the two terms are not interchangeable-there are more than a few of us who don't 'love' jackson, and equally some who find the books boring.


The Talking Purse is Awesome, deal with it.

But he isn't quite as aweome as Cirdan.
