Nickname for the site!

I thought we could discuss a nickname we could use for the site. There is loads of serious Tolkien threads at the moment so i thought I should break the ice.


What about the TF?

I have never seen why a site needs its own nickname. Whats wrong with Tolkien Forums???

The TF sounds good to me! Nice and simple...And ya, it is helpful not to always have to type out the entire name of the site...and it certainly takes too long on IM and such...

Well I suppose we could always opt for something a bit longer...perhaps ToFo or ummm... I hope you know I was kidding. Though it does remind me of tofu...I personally don't care for the stuff, but well, you never know...

when I saw ToFo I thought of the exact same thing....lol
maybe as we have "the plaza" we can have "the forums"...I dunno
maybe TF is a little confusing

Yes, but the forums could be anything! There are probably hundreds of Tolkien forums out there, so how are people going to know which one we're refering to?

the plaza could also mean even more...but you know what the plata means to you just as you know what the forums means...

Actually (notice I'm being stubborn yet again), I don't know of any other plaza having to do with Lord of the Rings...the forums just seems much too general. I'd probably know what you were talking about but...it might be nice to have something a bit more specific!

Ahhh...not ToFo! I'm never gonna come up with something that stupid again! *covers ears and runs away trying not to think of tofu*

I thought of that...I was thinking (generally not a good sign), and that might be just specific enough to work really well! What does everyone else think?

Tolfor... not bad, sounds like an actual ME place, better than ToFo, that sounds like some sort of cheap business buzz-word, and yes, a meat substitute hehe.
Tolkums? lol, sounds like a nickname for J.R.R's cat... I'm not good with names.

I think ToFo is rather original...


I like that, hehe.

Hmmm...ya, Tolkums does sound like a cat name doesn't it! We've certainly had some original ideas...And next time I try to suggest something like ToFo someone'd better stop me, lol!

Beats me! They're all interesting...very interesting...I'm leaning toward TolFor at the moment!

I still like ToFo! oh well...


TF would be easiest. tTF = the Tolkien Forums, I like that little 't' there in the front of it. Just a bit more of my input.

tTF...well i personally would say TF is easier then also adding a t in front...but then again that is my opinion

How about, "TFITF"? I think it's pretty self-explanatory, but anyone in doubt should maybe just send me a PM (message) rather than posting here..!

umm...why shouldn't we ask here?
anyway I don't understand what TFITF could mean
maybe tolkien forums is totally freaky...

Well, TFITF goes something like "Thank Fingolfin It's Tolkien Forums"! Only with a slightly more colourful word in place of "Fingolfin"...

TITF is good, though actually, I've kind of come round to Tolfo, which sounded slightly less like that icky meat substitute...
Oh yeah, "slightly more colourful word", Thank FOO it's Tolkien Forums ? About as colourful as you can get :P!

I have seen a few people using TF now so I guess we should stick to that.
