Whoa, that's something to see: the great Barrow-Wight with zero posts. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

Wow, that's really interesting to see something so old. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Indeed, seeing the BW without his usual thousands of posts is strange, eh?

Are any of those people, besides burrahobbit, still around here today?

how long do you think it will take for the forum to reach that state?

It probably wont take long if you look at all the posts.

How long do you all think this site will go on? I have ideas of it going on 'till Tolkien books are nothing more then ancient rellics. You know, passing the place on from one generation of ghosts to another. But I'm not sure that's realistic.

thanx barrow wight!

i didnt realise entmoot was older than the downs. Ive been once before but didnt stay.

It is wierd seeing the barrow wight and burrahobbit with no posts at all. Out of all he people ive seen here, ive only ever seen those two before.

i dont think the downs will be gone for a long time yet. Not for the next two years and in the aftermath of the movies at any rate.

I think i may have found an older post...no wait, its from 29 days after. ah well, here it is anyway- 18 registered users

Wow - it's a scary thing to see the BW with 0 posts! The fabric of my world is crumbling around me!

I think I've seen that before...the "0 posts" bear BW's name looks quite familiar.
