Anyone Still Around???

Hello? I am just wondering if their are still any active users on this site anymore, or have they all gone into the West?

There are some.

I have been "there and back again" in life and online (meaning: I've been in real life adventures) and am glad to be back in what I consider, home.

I am Jaidoprism7, not a good Tolkein-esque word but it's been my name here on this site for a while.

I hope to hear where you will begin here on this site. There are many topics and many cool places to go. I'm sure there are newer members and torchbearers who can give you more recent updates than I but I will gladly help if I can. Welcome...see you around

I pop in every once in a while to see if folks are still around. Glad to meet you Menegilda. My friend Jaido told me there was a new member. Welcome!

Thank you! I hope to begin exploring this Forum soon!

Unfortunately the golden era of forums has long passed, it's all social media now. It was assumed that the release of The Hobbit trilogy would inspire a new wave of activity across Middle-earth centred forums but I don't think it materialised.

I intend to maintain this forum into the future, it won't be shut down. The only real difference is that the forum now has an ad banner on the top, the chat box is gone and I no longer update the monthly poll thing that used to be done in the earlier years of the site.

 

The site was first created back in 2005 so it has some sentimental value for me. I still maintain the non-forum website subscription and the domain name/email services.

 

For the last few years the old regulars have stopped coming through. A new member will register, make a few posts and then leave as no one responds. If a dozen or so oldies got together and agreed to come on a certain times it might keep things ticking over but it seems unlikely. If people shared the site via social media that might help. I could then re-enable premium services and the chat function could be restored.

 

I've heard various rumours about a new series being made based around Aragorn's life. Maybe that will trigger some interest.

Well, I do hope it does! It is so sad to see a wonderful website looking as abandoned as Moria or Erebor :)

Perhaps now would be a good time to try the above suggestion of getting an active group on here to post regularly, and recruit more members? Take advantage of this Covid-19 pandemic? Wishful thinking, perhaps, but there are a lot of people with spare time on their hands!

I still check in once in a while and am in touch with a couple folks. We could try to revive things?
