HobbitForums.com update [09 Apr 2009|02:00pm]

inkyness
The site is just about finished!

It isn't open yet, and probably won't be until sometime tomorrow - if you go to the Hobbit Forums main page you'll still see the "coming soon" thing - but you can get to the forums by going to hobbitforums.com/index.php, and I'd like to invite anyone who's interested to register a day before we officially open. This will ensure that you get your first choice of a username, and hopefully if a few of us make posts today and tomorrow morning it won't appear so "empty" to new members.

I've also set up a separate usergroup for the lovely folks who help get the forum off the ground. It essentially gives you all the privileges of a user who has reached 300 posts (including being able to upload a custom 100x100 avatar and increased PM space) plus a "Founding Member" title under your name. If you'd like me to add you to this group, spend me a private message on the forums (or on LJ - just include the name you registered under) and I can do so.

Also, I'd just like to say again that the site is extremely new and we can make lots of improvements as time goes on, so if you have any suggestions at all I'd be delighted to hear them.

Thanks, everyone!

Hobbit Forums [04 Apr 2009|10:22pm]

Hey guys,

I've recently been contacted by someone who is planning to set up a Forum for discussion of the upcoming Hobbit movies. inkyness contacted me to find out if I would be willing to join such a forum as they want to get people interested before it opens so that membership won't be awful. To reiterate, the board isn't openyet but will be soon!

The following screenshot gives a preview of what the site will be like when it opens:

I thought it would be really nice for the RingQuest guys to join this board so we can squee about the Hobbit movies and LotR all over again. I'm definitely signing up. Would any of you be interested?

The Hobbit [02 Jun 2008|12:44am]

elven_sg1
Hey guys,

Just thought I'd start a discussion about The Hobbit movies and ask what everyone thinks of them. So are you excited, nervous? Worried about what the second movie will about?

Post speculation and links etc here!

Elven xx

ETA: In case anyone hasn't seen it, transcript of a massive webchat with PJ and GDT here. It may answer some questions and allay some fears?

I just happened to wander to this community and it made me realize how I miss the old Ringquest forums. The site hasn't worked for me for months now. I get that funny nostalgic feeling now that I think about how long ago it was when I joined.

Ah, memories.

Question! [20 Apr 2007|12:28pm]

silvia8
Do any of you guys still post on RQ sometimes?
I sometimes still wander there, mainly for nostalgia reasons, but it's all either a) forgotten and abandoned (booo) or b) taken over by new members I have never talked to. And I am generally weary of them, just because they're new members and therefore I can look at them with disgust :D Theeheee.

Hobbit News and RQ Moderation [23 Nov 2006|01:43pm]

khallandra
Hey could one of the Ringquest mods please approve the News post I put up.

It is about the article: http://www.theonering.net/staticnews/1163993546.html

Thought it might be worth putting it on RQ.

The news is already a couple of days old but thought you guys might wanna know.

LOTR Sorting Community! [09 Sep 2006|10:09am]

elgato_gamgins
If you know anything about sorting communities and hogwarts_elite, you will get my idea. I'm trying to make a LOTR hogwart_elite! FOR US LOTR FANS! So, I'm looking for anyone interested in helping.

I was thinking calling it Tolkien's Relm.

I made a post about it in my journal, and there's talk about some ideas.

And something I'm doing unlike most sorting communities: I'm not kicking people out!

Remember her? ;) [28 Jun 2006|02:30pm]

[ mood | amused ]

Of course this is all a couple of years old…

But still...

... ever so amusing.

I also had no idea...

... it was as widely spread as this.

The famous Pastede On photo-manip.

Also, here is a manip (one of many she posted on Ring Quest way back when) that I knew for a fact was fake.
Why? Because I had the original.

I've always wondered why we never spoke about it openly on RQ, what with the ammount of fake art she posted there as well... I gotta give it to her, though, she got me thoroughly interested in photomanips. ;)

P.S. Psst! She's still here…

Brokeback Mountain - Lotr style [02 Mar 2006|04:01pm]

[ mood | amused ]

If you ever wondered about Frodo and Sam's relationship, watch this video. It's very cute and very funny at the end.

WARNING: Contains homosexual innuendo and some strong innuendo at the very end. PG-13 at least!

Okay so can anyone get in contact with anyone who can fix Ringquest? Does anyone know on what server the actual site resides - has that also expired or just the ringquest.com as if that is the case tell me where it lives and I'll forward it on using my domain.

Anyone at all?

Well, since I can't really update this on the site at the moment because of the issue stated in post below mine, I'll update it here.

I've sent e-mails to all thirteen entrants for the RQ Secret Santa. If you do not receive yours, tell me! Give me an alternate e-mail or something. ;)

Remember, this starts of the 1st and goes on until the 22nd. If you do not receive any gifts in the next week and a half or so, contact me! Also, if you are not able to send gifts, contact me so I can arrange for a replacement. ;)

Happy Holidays!

EDIT: Okay...I just an e-mail back for Tanhuan. What's your Yahoo addy again?
