Yep! [In reply to] Can't Post

(And then a friendly admin comes by and nudges your post from the Movie Board to the Feedback Board, which is where queries like this are best placed. Smile)

If you click on "View Threaded" in the upper right corner, you'll see a list of just the subject lines of all the replies. Any that are indented, are replies to those replies...sort of like a tree. Take a look at some of the longer threads, and you can see what I mean.

Do you have a question that's Movie-related or Reading Room (the Books) related? Then post it on the appropriate board, just like you posted this one!

Hey, you already know how to do this! [In reply to] Can't Post

You can post on the LotR Movie Board the same way you posted on the Hobbit Movie Board:

If you click on my link to your post above and go to it, then click "View Threaded", and you'll see a tree of replies - some to you, some to members who have responded to you. To reply to any of these posts, just click on them and click the "Reply to this Post" in their upper-right corner.

In theory, that's how it works [In reply to] Can't Post

In practice, someone inevitably mentions pants, or puns, and an entire subthread develops unrelated to your original posting.

"And just hope no one combines them and starts a clothing-related pun thread", he panted.

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville

Did you say 'thread'? [In reply to] Can't Post

"A wizard is never pantsed, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he wedgied. He strides out precisely when he means to."

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.

It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going into your closet. You step inside, and if you don't keep your pants, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to. // [In reply to] Can't Post

If I take one more step, it'll be the farthest away from my pants I've ever been... // [In reply to] Can't Post

In a hole in the pants, there lived a hobbit. [In reply to] Can't Post

Not nasty, dirty, wet pants, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet dry, thread-bare sandy pants too tight to sit down: it was hobbit -pants, and that means comfort waistband."

I am SMAUG! I kill when I wish! I am strong, strong, STRONG!
My armor is like tenfold shields! My teeth like swords! My claws, spears!
The shock of my tail, a thunderbolt! My wings, a hurricane! And my breath, death!

Losing the mail-shirt to the orcs was bad enough, thought Sam, but... [In reply to] Can't Post

... the clatter of his precious pants as they fell down into the dark was like a death-knell to his heart.

We come, we come with roll of drum: ta-runda runda runda rom! [In reply to] Can't Post

We come, we come with horn and drum: ta-runa runa runa rom!

We come, we come bare bole and branch!
We just don't need no stinking pants!

Ď. . . the rule of no realm is mine . . .
But all worthy things that are in peril . . . those are my care.
For I also am a steward. Did you not know?'
