Google Doodle Anyone? Can't Post

For the past several years, I have contacted Google and asked them to do a Google Doodle to J.R.R. Tolkien’s b’day. You know… those swifty, nifty search box banners they have for special people and occasions? Obviously, they jumped right on it! :{

In the Q&A section, their response to Google Doodle requests is:

You can find information about Google Doodles here.
The ideas for the doodles come from numerous sources including Googlers and Google users.
If you have a suggestion for a Google Doodle, you can email it to proposals@google.com.
Of course, you'll need to let Google know well before the event!

How about 6 years of asking?

So I’m putting out a call for everyone to do just that! Send a request or suggestion for an annual J.R.R. Tolkien Birthday Google Doodle starting next January 3rd (1892)!

There were some Middle-earth/Tolkien doodles in the past; but when you do a search on their site, it says there are none. However, I snagged some when they originally came out and have listed them below. So if you see any that you’d like to suggest they use for Tolkien’s b’day, feel free to pass any of these on to them. TORn hasn’t flexed its muscles for quite a while… here’s our chance :D

Examples of Doodles Past:

Tolkien anagram

One Ring

Dragon Tolkien

Tree, Door, Lanky

Hobbity

JRRT Anagram

Eye of Sauron

Gandalf

JRRT Elven script 1

JRRT Elven script 2

Fellowship

Ring 1

Ring 2

dragon worm

We have been there and back again.

Sent it in . . . [In reply to] Can't Post

Great idea! I sent in a suggestion just now for both events. It would be really cool if they did it eventually. :)
