Found it!!

Postby Parador~J » Thu Jun 16, 2005 7:46 am

I was just telling a friend in the Tolkien Virtual Library that I needed to revive this thread, lol:)

And low-n-behold...who should be the reviver...but my wonderful old Tookish friend...FT :hug:

How I have missed you dear hobbit :) Where the Tookster are you!! :?


And Harvi and ENTY...Rwhen :grouphug: My wonderful TORC pals...it has been too long...

I thought this thread had been deleted :shock: The link in my favorites did not work...and then I remembered the message board changed over to a new server...so I thought I would take a chance and check out the forum 'Collections' just to see if it was here :wink:

Yes...time to add your favorite threads or posts TORCites! Many a great memories lie within this precious archive vault ... :thumbsup:

I encourage you to take the time and add your special memories here, to be immortalized forever in TORC's great Halls of Mandos...

What a great read! I SO remember these threads....hope that everyone returns and that we get even funnier ones in our wait for the Hobbit!

So....a lot of the links early in the thread don't seem to go anywhere.....when did TolkienOnline morph into whatver site some of these threads take us to? (It's funny - when I first heard about the hobbit the first message board site I thought of was Tolkien Online, but I couldn't find it - then I found one of my old "Favorites" web icons and it brought me here to TORC - back home, it seems....) :)

Hey nazgurl :)

This is indeed a great thread to keep active and I thank you so much for bringing it to our attention.

I just got through reading through all of it again and found much joy while doing so.

I ( too ) am sorry some of the links don't easily lead to the many treasures ( which should not be forgotten ) that our fellow TORCers shared.

I have not yet figured out how to navigate that Tolkien Site the links now lead us to.

Still...this is a great stroll down memory lane.

MANY THANKs to all who shared their creativity and finds.

I sincerely hope all is well with all of you..and to all who you hold dear.

Regards,
FT
Travis

Much love to PJ...

who started this thread with much love for her fellow TORCers.

Nazgurl and FT, the domain name tolkienonline.com belongs now to a completely different site, and you won't find our old threads there.

But, you can get to those threads by copy-pasting the link and changing it a bit. For example,

http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhiteco ... adid=20523

change it to

http://forums.theonering.com/viewtopic.php?t=20523

and it will take you to the Donut Guild. :)
