Just a thought on the chore of Mod (small rambling kudos) Can't Post

(This should be a PM, but well, PM is only to individuals and I would like to say this to the whole Mod-squad)
I wasn't here last year this time. This morning, I got a bit overwhelmed at the activity on the TH board already. Yeah, we had the frenzy in July over the trailer, but the flurry this morning is all over the place, what with duplicate threads and new posts and threads spawning like it's full-moon on coral reefs. I can only imagine the increasing buzz adding on to the Mods' plate.. prolly all the way into January at least. So before all that happens, and we get overwhelmed, I just want to say: thanks in advance, Mods!Smile

And when things get a bit much, maybe before dispensing the Wrath of Mod, which I'm sure you do in some variant Angelic

Thank you! Laugh

We've rolled up our shirtsleeves and prepared ourselves to tackle whatever happens in there, during the "busy seasons". Just think, it's only just begun, there have been hints that November and December will be filled with Hobbit fun - and with some "old favorite" characters returning as well!

Yes, we're in for a wild ride! Cool

Nice post Lurker [In reply to] Can't Post

and I agree - there was quite a flurry on TH board, and it reminded me of last year once the new trailer came out, on into Dec. Lots to keep track of, so I'll add my advance thanks as well.


Love the new name "Mod-squad" - that's perfect! And the Cookie Monster. Laugh

I hope the event planners are suitably prepared and put all local clinics and hospitals on alert! Perhaps if they hand out brown paper bags as the fans arrive, they can mitigate the risk.

Lurker came up with a visual for this very possibility in the TA threads [In reply to] Can't Post

HERE in TA Thread XVI. The perfect visual for all of the Thralls, both for Thranduil and Thorin, being flattened by the combined fabulousness and #majesticness!Laugh

If LP and RA show up on the red carpet together, Lurker's "news report" about "Massive Audience Spontaneous Swooning (MASS)" may just become reality!Wink

Ah, thank you for bringing this to my attention [In reply to] Can't Post

This excellent article has inspired me to offer the following suggestion: Thrall-only screenings. Then, there would be no disruptive behavior as the Thralls would have exclusive front and center access to the object of their respective thralldoms, and the non-afflicted could go on their oblivious way to enjoying the movie in peace. I'll draft a petition to send to the movie execs - it's a win-win for everyone.
