Well, Saucy, I do believe you've got competition! Or at least you will be getting competition very soon! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Latest update:

lindil, who already generously donates his time to the Revised Silmarillion Project, has donated a nice sum and entered the board as a Protector and Cardolan.

Two long-time benefactors, Laughing Eagle and Hilde Bracegirdle, have donated again. Thank you!

Many, many thanks to our very first IMMORTAL OF AMAN, piosenniel, who has donated to the site for the 7th time this year! Thanks to her and all other contributors, the Downs has a solid financial foundation that will keep us going for quite a while!

Finwe has risen to the penultimate level of Barrow-Benefaction, the <font color="white">Faithful of Nmenor</font>. Her timely donation, as well as the regular donations from all of you, was responsible for the new forum software *and* the prizes for The Barrow-Downs Scavenger Hunt.

Thank you!

Thumbs up A new Benefactor

lestat, one of our most voracious consumers of chat room screen space, has donated to the cause and become our newest Barrow-Benefactor. Thank you very much, lestat. Everyone should thank you and our other contributors for keeping the Downs going!

One big praise, one note and one question

Praise: Long live the Benefactors! Praise them with great praise

Note: Sophia Thunder Mistress's entry on the first page omits an opening capital S

Question: BW, is your postal address the same (as I can not get through by PM). Just yes or no would suffice. If no, let me have it by PM or e-mail.


Cheers

Glad to do it! If something happened to the downs, I don't know what I'd do! For one, my writing would stink...yeah, my plan is, a little a month. It only takes $10 a month to become a Commanders of Arnor! I'm on my way Finwe!

Over here in Blighty I have considered sending some money to support the Downs... However, the most unfortunate of mishaps occurred just yesterday, my special lap-top (at which I spend most of my life) fell from its special place and the hard disk broke! I now had to pay 100 for a new one! But rest assured Lord Barrow Wight, by at least January Ill have sent 50... This is around $89.87 (as of 24th of September 2004). So Don't Panic!

Anyway, for a donation of 50, would I receive 50 points or 89?

Just to clarify something, Lord Barrow Wight. How much is it actually costing you for the upkeep of the Downs?
I don't want to find out that all the spare funds are going to wards some form of giant robot that will take over the world (That's happened before)... or some form of "Barrow Downs theme park!"... Actually that wouldn't be so bad! I hope its that!
