Well, I posted a thread on LaWiseWoman, so we'll hopefully get some help from there and...um...yeah.

*sighs* I'll try and talk to the manager at Hoyts Theatres. But it may be a bit better if I wait for a while 'til we have the whole thing a little more clearly defined, OK?

Well, Elfearz...is there anything you're particulalry good at? Such as websites or designing...etc. Otherwise we'll dump you in a group that no one wants to be in. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

And that reminds me...what's happened to the Running Ring???!!!

Hi all! Our "exam week" is starting at school and I'm quite busy next two weeks but after that I could probably do something. Unfortunately I'm not really good at any tasks listed on the previous page. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]
If I had to choose, I'd pick advertising but there's always this problem that I'm not a native English speaker.

[edit: a typo...]

Well what is your first language? Maybe we can find someone on this site who speaks the same language and he/she can help you out.

My first languange is Finnish but I doubt that there aren't too many Finns here.
Maybe it's better that I don't join any comittee but if you need general opinions about something, I could tell my view (if anyone's interested [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] )

I'm sorry, I don't have any contacts with anyone famous and I'm not very "computer savvy" [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img] , but I'm pretty good at drawing or designing. I also have a scanner and a computer program that spiffys up scanned pictures a bit, so if you need help with that, I'll be willing. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

So the Running Ring is the design we'll be putting on the t-shirts? Maybe we could have the Barrow-Downs symbol on the front and on the back put the Running Ring and:

Golden Ring Marathon!
October 20th, 2005!

That's just an idea...

*sighs* I know, I know...I'm waiting too, but Robyn hasn't sent it to me yet. But I go back to college on Thursday...and I'm doing NCEA Level 1 now so that'll take up a lot of my time.

Oh, and before I forget, 20th of October 2005. The Golden Ring Marathon is written on the inside of the drawing so we don't have to worry about adding that in...we just have to print 'www.barrowdowns.com' below it and we're all sweet.

BTW, it's nice to see so many Kiwi accents in Hollywood nowadays [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] (Go Hard, Pete)

I've seen your website, elfearz, and it looks good to me! At this point we would go for substance over style, so we really don't need anyone who knows super-advanced html, just someone who can make us a competant and attractive website. You seem to be well-qualified for the job. As long as you're willing to commit to the website design, and think you might be able to come up with something really fancy sooner or later, when we really jump into adveritsing, I'd say you're our very own one and only Web Design committee member. I'll let my fellow chairpeople and such look at it too (the link to her homepage, in case you didn't notice [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] ), but don't hesitate to join the committee.

I just had an idea as to what I can help with in the immediate future.

When we decide on a name for the site, I can register and host the domain name on my works server. We can even have our own forums if the need be.

If this is helpful please let me know.

Hell yeah, that's useful! So hopefully if you drop the design to Middleearthguy we'll see the Running Ring soon? [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Oh, and I just want to say...
IT'S SNOWING!!!!!!!! WAHAY!!!!!!!!!! (And I thought it was a typical British thunderstorm- but apparently not...the weatherforcasters got it right for once [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] . They've been predicting snow for a few days now...

Um yeah...excellent, Morgul...how's the Ian McKellen front going? Any news yet? Tell us if there is.

Right, to recap on T-shirts. We download the Running Ring and either paint the picture on or we could do heat transfer...and we add the barrowdowns link on separately. But either way, we do it all separately, yes?

And about the date...it doesn't matter if I write it 20th October 2005 as opposed to October 20th 2005, does it...because I'm British...and I'm afraid to say that a lot of people I know are going to take to this much better if it isn't entirely Americanised. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Hope I'm not offending everyone here...and I'm not stereotyping all the English or anything...but anyway, it's just the date. It's not going to be vital to have it any particular order, is it?

That's probably a good idea, Elentari.

I posted once, then forgot all about this, then noticed it again and was amazed at how organized it's gotten! I have finally finished reading the rest of this thread and am definately willing to help in whatever way I can! Most likely General Planning, or I could probably help with website design as well. (I'm good at editing for spelling and grammar...one of the few things I'm good at.)

Lots of people are saying that they don't have any special contact with the actors or experts. I don't really think that's necessary to be on the Contacts committee, you just have to be able to write a good letter to get them interested, and willing to keep up with them and keep us updated on their input.

I had actually thought of the possible need for our own forum before. So.... I went and got one. I hope you won't think me too bold. Here's the link: The Golden Ring Marathon Forum. And when you join, it would be really nice if you used the same name as here on the Barrow-Downs, or at least a similar one, so that we all know who you are. Now that we have that, though, let's not all run over there and completely neglect this thread. When we do make the eventual transition, let's keep posting updates and such here, so that people can still find it, and they don't all just forget about it. I think keeping htis thread on the first page where people can see it would be a good goal, but we still need good posts, not just bumps. Maybe we should use this thread for general and overall discussion, and use our own forum for planning mostly among the various committees. That's basically the way I've got it set up. The chairpeople can become the mods for the forum, if that's alright with all of you. And be sure to make any suggestions you can. See you there!

Luthien, you're awesome. I'm glad you're a chair! So, what can I do? Am I on advertising? I might be able to make up some posters or something... Let me know. I'm headed over to the forum to join! WHEE! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

EDIT: I've joined some other forums, too. Hopefully someone will notice my sig! (Council of Elrond and LOTR Fanatics Plaza. Any other suggestions? I'm so busy trying to find my way around!)

My email is being very slow so I dont have the password sent to me yet , this kinda thing is exactly what I was thinking of minus the nasty popup/banner ads at the top that have cookies and other nasties to clog up your pc secretly.

Maybe you would like to setup/admin the forums I could provide free without ads and other nasties?

I have signed up for the new forum, although it hasn't sent me my password yet either. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] Anyway, my name will be the same there as it is here. I can't wait!!

Elentįri, the date thing is fine by me. I'm from the U.S. and the date doesn't offend me or anything. As long as we have a date and a month instead of just numbers so as not to confuse people in different parts of the world, it would be fine.

One idea I had for advertising within the 'Downs for the Marathon is for those of you who have notices in your signatures to turn them into links to either this thread or our forum. I know I, for one, had no idea what the Golden Ring Marathon was for quite a while.
Hannon le, Luthien, for our lovely forum!

TTFN! (Ta Ta For Now!)

Not at all, Finwe! We need the help! Ok, I'm going to sign up to the forum...I'll probably sign as Elentįri or something because my name is just way too long. Glad there have been no objections over the date! Yup, as long as it isn't in numbers...I get VERY confused when it's in numbers!
Ahh, the snow melted. Oh well...
Morgul, could you really get a forum with no ads or anything? That would be wonderful! But anyway, I need to have a look at this one...

Do we have the design for the Running Ring yet? How about anyone who has artistic talent on this or Luthien's site could some how send in a scetch of theirs and then we could all vote on it.

Keep up the great work!

Okay, I still don't have my password, but as soon as I do, I'll post some ideas.

But meanwhile, I will do anything you want me to, I'm more of a go-getter. I plan, then do.

*I live in a BIG tourist town, so I'm getting stuff in the paper, etc.*

Anyways, I'm thinking General Planning & Advertizing is more my cup of tea. But it's up to you!

DEFINATELY DO NOT MAKE THIS TOO AMERICAN!!!!!
I live in America, AND HATE EVERY SECOND OF IT! *no offense to anyone [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] * I think this should be based mostly in the UK and US, though.

That's what I was thinking, middleearthguy...I signed up yesterday and don't have my password!

Ahh, Arwen!!! Good to see/read you!!! I would try to paraphrase the last few pages...but it would take too long. Most of the action has been in the last two or three though...so if you're really short of time look there...

Hmm, haven't come across many Americans who hate Americanisation, I must say...but oh well. As long as it doesn't end up too corporate or anything...this ought to be a fan thing above all. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Everything is going great, it's awesome to see everyone getting involved! Huzzah!!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Abedithon le,

Thankyou, everyone, for the many praises and accolades at my forum creation! Now hopefully I can live up to such praise.

For those of you who haven't received your password yet: I'm very sorry, but I can't control it. I don't know what causes it to go this slowly. I set up an experimental account which I have since deleted, and it took a day to get the password e-mail, whereas signing up for the messageboard itself took mere minutes. There is one thing I can do for you. Please do not be alarmed, I would never abuse this power, but I do have the ability to change your password (probably for situations like these). So if you still haven't received your password, PM me, and I will give you a random password which you can use to log in. You can then change your password in your profile, so I'll only know what it is until you change it. This doesn't mess up your account or anything (ie. it won't demand that you log in first with the orginal password it would have sent to you), because I already tried it with the experimental account. So if anyone wants to try this, go ahead and PM me, and I will try to get you set up.

I assume this will mostly be in the UK and US, but we should strive to make it as international as possible. Use whatever dating system you're comfortable with (I use both, one for each different setting I'm in).

Oops, I was going to edit my post to say I had got my password after all...but somehow I forgot... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

So, Arwen...which committee will you join?

By the way Luthien, the pictures are finally working! Did you switch the hosts or something?

Yes, I switched hosts. Geocities wasn't liking me, you see.... Glad to see it's working now. I was getting sick of not being able to see the pictures, including my avatar here.

So, everyone's got their password now?

EDIT: As far as I know, the only person who doesn't have their password so far is middleearthguy.... could you either confirm that you have it or PM me so that I can help you?

Hmm, haven't come across many Americans who hate Americanisation
Well, 'hate' is maybe too strong a word, 'dislike' or 'strongly dislike' might be better. But I fit into that category as well. And I am trying to train myself to use day/month/year for dates. Not an easy thing to do, having used the American way until a few weeks ago. Anyway, you probably don't really want me to keep ranting, so I'll stop now, before I really get going!

I have not yet joined that forum, but I will soon! (I hope! I can be a bit of a flake at times)

Just remember, don't make it too "British" or "non-American" either. We don't need it to be at the other end of the spectrum either.

Very good point, Finwe. We'll have to fight about that later at the Forum. [shameless plug] You know, the Continuity Area at the Golden Ring Forum. We really get the final say in how everything will be set up, because it all has to be right and the same everywhere. Really an incredibly important committee, that. Too bad more people haven't joined, they're really missing out. [/shameless plug]

Okay, everybody, this is what's been going on: In General Planning, we've been working on Merchandise ideas, licensing, and where to hold it; in Advertising, we've put links in quite a few sites, and Morgul Queen got one of the Running Rings up (yay!); I personally can't speak for Web Design; Continuity has been working on continuity stuff (i know, descriptive, sorry!); Contacts has been, well, contacting, and figuring out who's doing what. Come on over, we need your help!

Ring New stuff happening!

Yes, Contacts is sorting out who to contact, and Web Design is working on getting a web site and making sure everyone knows the basics. We'd love to have anyone who wants to join us! The Golden Ring Marathon Forum

Web design's been rather slow lately...As in nobody posted there for about a week.
