I am only too happy to second what Nogrod has said about Heren's encouragement of newcomers. It is something for which I am forever in HI's debt - as well as his education programme regarding Georgia - this time last year I was able to explain to my family the reasons for Georgia playing rugby to such a high level, now alas I watch the news and fret about the safety of Heren and family. So I send a deathday wish for better times in his Shire.

Ooh, happy deathday, Heren... Eight years is quite an achievement (not that it would be so horrible here that one wouldn't have fun...). I, too, must second what is said about Mr H-I and newcomers, and add a little point which is that I found it very nice and welcoming as a newcomer that such a respected and wise member as H-I thanked me for the reputation points I gave him.

Indeed a happy deathday, Mr. HI. Now eight years - that indeed feels almost unimaginable; it made me think how relative the numbers sometimes are - because while I can well imagine let's say eight apples, but have a problem with imagining a million apples; then if I try to imagine eight years at the Downs, I have a problem rightaway... but there's somebody who actually managed it

Aye, a happy D-day to you, HI. Glad you were able to check in!

Yes, it does seem like only yesterday we were two young wights about the mounds. Look at us now, husbands and fathers both. Wouldn't it be nice if we were still talking Tolkien eight years hence, and maybe both our sons Junior Wights into the bargain.

It just occurred to me that my 6th Deathday was a couple weeks ago (Sep 28th, I believe). 6 years is a life-age on the internet, even if I only really check in to play Werewolf these days. I recall days gone by when I haunted the books and the movies and the RPGs and the mirthy endeavors not involving the phrase Tol-in-Gaurhoth. Way back when my screenname actually matched my age.

Today, I was thinking about what one single decision may change: what impact it had on my life, that one moment when I actually filled in my user name and all the required fields and hit the registration button. With that, perhaps simple step, the Downs opened for me, I made my place here, and got to know all you wonderful people around here. I am really happy that there was, two years ago, a 15th November in my life...

1420! Have A Good One!

Well happy Deathday Legate! I'm certainly glad that you made the decision to join the Downs, you're a Tolkien genius and have opened my eyes to the deeper meaning of Tolkien's work! I hope that you stay around for many more years to come, and that you continue to be an inspiration in the discussions here. Cheers!

I just noticed, mine was over a week ago. One year and counting.

Yup, seconded. And, Eönwë... only a year? Man, you made an impact, or at least I get the feeling as if you have been around for much longer...

Just a quick note to mark my 8 year anniversary here (and the first time I've had the presence of mind to notice). The forum has undergone a few changes since my first visit, but the Downs remains the best Tolkien site and forum to be found. Thanks to my intriguing and erudite fellow Downers for giving new meaning to the phrase 'never a dull moment', all the mods and admins for their tireless efforts, and most of all to the Wight, who somehow keeps this big ship flying.
With any luck, 10 years will be just around the corner.

Cheers

Yay!

The Mistress of Penguins has been dead for four years today.

May her Lordship forever stay dead on the BD!

EDIT: To make it clear - Happy Deathday, Lommy!

Thanks, Might. It always delights (and surprises) me when someone remembers my deathday without me first gloating about it.

Four years... it's a long time, for sure. Especially if you think that I was not even fifteen when I joined (and you can very well see that in my first posts ). I do hope I will stay here forever. This place and all the people have just become incredibly important to me, in so many ways and levels...

PS. Belated congrats, Inziladun. You make me feel like a newbie...

With joining the praise of Lommy's deathday, I would also like to wish belated happy deathday to Valier, which was a few days ago, unfortunately I haven't been around to wish her on that very day. And of course, a belated happy deathday to Inziladun (and I agree with Lommy on that newbie thing, now what am I supposed to say...)

Many thanks to all.

We certainly all hope for that And belated happy deathday, Miggy... hmph, I always watch out for Downers' deathdays, but about the day just before them I always forget about it...

You simply still are Miggy (Miggie), we did not manage to forget you...

What would you like to be, then? "Miggey", like I once suggested on some quiz thread?

No, I think that was me who said that. And you said that Miggey sounds weird and that it should be either Miggy or Miggie, I think.

Today is, in many parts of the world, the Feast of the Epiphany, which is the feast of Jesus being revealed to us as God among us. Although this may mean nothing to most of you, I find it wicked cool that January 6th is ALSO my Deathday. Not that I intend to make any Christ-like comparisons for myself about that being the day I revealed myself among you... I'll make it more flattering and say it's the day the awesomeness of the Downs was revealed to me. In any case, four years of being a Downer have somewhere disappeared, and I consider myself lucky to have looked it up in time to celebrate it (I knew it was early January, but forgot the date). The good times I've had on this site, and off of it with friendships forged because of it, grow more numerous every year.

Now that is nice Belated happy deathday, then. And hope you are going to have a long stay with us yet...

And just following the train of thoughts you started, it occured to me that in that case the "coolest" Deathday would be probably the Good Friday. But, (perhaps fortunately) its calendar date changes every year, so one cannot have it.

The whole day today, the thought that there's something I should be remembering kept gnawing at me... and turns out it should have happened yesterday. Boo for amnesia.

Happy deathday, Michael. It's amazing that it's already been four years, but somehow it's not hard to believe.

And late deathday greetings to Kath, who turned 5 years dead last January 4! What a perfect day to join the Downs.
