Cannot log into new ToR Forum Can't Post

I have noticed there is a new TORn forum with new design. However, I cannot log in there with my password from here, and I don't see a registration link either.

I kid. :)

I'm not sure what you're referring to though. Can you paste a link or screenshot here for us to look at?

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."

Sauron: "Mine's better."

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

Well - that's .com, we're .net [In reply to] Can't Post

Not sure what that's all about, but I don't think it is TORN.

And I don't feel like visiting it because it's close enough to smell like bad phish.

TheOneRing.com [In reply to] Can't Post

theonering.com is a completely different site. If you want to view their forums you need to register with them. I hate to say it, though, but that looks to be a dying community.

TORN versus TORC [In reply to] Can't Post

Ah, the days when that was a fierce rivalry.

...IIRC you have to send a private message to an admin via the "Contact Us" form under the "About" tab.

Used to they were very careful to screen out any people from TORn because, well, they liked to talk about TORn. It was kind of high-schoolish.

What a shame. [In reply to] Can't Post

The TOR.com homepage hasn't had a new post since December 2013. The forums seem to be the only thing keeping the site alive. I guess that news of the Amazon series came too little too late. I don't even see a topic about it.

I have unpleasant memories [In reply to] Can't Post

of the repercussions that occurred on TORN when the members of both sites decided to stir the pot. I'm sure you aren't going there to cause trouble Otaku, but keep in mind that if there are any long-term board members still active on TORC that you'll be entering an area that could be more sensitive than you'd expect. Please be cautious.

Forewarned is forearmed. [In reply to] Can't Post

I couldn't help noticing that the homepage there hasn't been active for years, and the forums do not have any discussions of such current topics as the upcoming Amazon series or Cubicle 7's Middle-earth role-playing games. It's just a shame to see the TOR.com site reduced to such a state. Still, based on reports such as your own, my registration might not even get confirmed.

I made several dozen posts there years ago. [In reply to] Can't Post

This would have been starting circa 2005-2006, after any controversy had died down, as far as I could tell. Among other things, they were at one point attempting to do an annotation of LOTR that I found quite interesting.

My registration must have been approved; I can log on there now. Now I just need to think about what to post.

There was a moment of unity I experienced. [In reply to] Can't Post

Remember TheLidlessEye? I still include his hilarious Middle-earth Weather Reports in several of the March TIME posts.

He contacted me in 2004 to tell me that one of the TORc members posted our RotK Geeky Observation List as their own on TORc . Lidless confronted the poster AND Hengist stepped in with so much respect and grace. Scrolling through the posts... I'm still moved by how TORc and TORn came together :)
