No, the signature is supposed to appear under all your posts, unless you unchecked the box to show your signature before you made the post (or went to the advanced edit where you can also do it).

Ah yes! Done.

Just wanted to say what a lovely site I think this is. The Barrow-Downs is a haunting and "less obvious" choice of name for a Tolkien discussion-site, and it's fascinating to think of that part of the book, which tends to (understandably) get left out of dramatisations, and wryly amusing to have statuses like "Ghost Prince of Cardolan" or "Pile O'Bones." Reminds me of all the intricate details and unknowns of Tolkien's world. And great to read the thoughts of a wonderfully "bookish" bunch of posters, too.

I'm with you here. There are forums named for Rivendell and Minas Tirith and all kinds of other good places, but I think it's much more fun to be an evil cyber wight of the Downs than an Elf or a Gondorian warrior.

White Tree Lol Hi guys :D

Hi everyone I've been a fan of Tolkien ever since I first read the Hobbit when I was 8 years old (I'm 14 and a half now). I'm really looking forward to contributing on this forum and having really deep confusing conversations involving way too much Elvish with all of you Cheers!

Alasse

p.s. sorry if any of that sounded sarcastic, it's just my natural way of writing things

Welcome back Annalaliath!

I think you should start a thread about it in the Novices section. I shall try to give some suggestions, and others will too.

Thank you for the welcome! I forgot to ask if I can bring my margarita in with me. (I am quite sure Gandalf must have been able to conjure a blender with that staff of his.)

Hi... I'm MCRmyGirl4eva.. and I've loved the movies for ages. However, I only had Fellowship and ROTK. So I read The Two Towers to catch up last year, since there was stuff in ROTK I didn't get. After that, I read Fellowship and Return of the King, and I saw how much had been left out. I still love the movies, and I have TTT movie now, but the books are better

Silmaril

At last, I found the magic key, or rubbed the magic lamp thrice or spoken the elvish word for friend.

I'm back in, again. Locked myself out for years (7 if memory serves, an auspicious number) having reset my password to a random string of alphanumeric characters and changed email addresses in the intervening period.

Time will tell if I get back into RPing. My hands are full co-writing a fourth age piece with my husband and my real life paying job. So, it may be some time before I daintily dip my toes in that murky RP pond again.

Doesn't appear that much has changed on the Barrows. Comforting, that, in a way. Like my small, rural, home town. No matter how long you're away, the place looks largely the same when you get back. This is a good thing. I know this.

Hey, I'm Danny. I'm 14. I found this forum a while ago, and decided to get an account yesterday. Mainly because I'm tired of having no one to talk to about LOTR. It's sad. I think I'm starting to annoy my friends (I made them all watch the movies and am working on getting them to read the books). So yeah. Hi.

*waves to Elora and all the new members* Welcome!

If you aren't into RPGs or the games in Mirth, there's a new chapter by chapter discussion of The Hobbit to whet your appetite for proper Tolkien just in time for the movies.

I'm back in, again. Locked myself out for years (7 if memory serves, an auspicious number) having reset my password to a random string of alphanumeric characters and changed email addresses in the intervening period.

Time will tell if I get back into RPing. My hands are full co-writing a fourth age piece with my husband and my real life paying job. So, it may be some time before I daintily dip my toes in that murky RP pond again.

Doesn't appear that much has changed on the Barrows. Comforting, that, in a way. Like my small, rural, home town. No matter how long you're away, the place looks largely the same when you get back. This is a good thing. I know this.
Woo Hoo! My sweet is back in the Downs!

Welcome to the Barrows Feadhros & Took_Gamgee!

Hi, my name is Glorthelion (Glorfindel and Ecthelion) and I am 16 years old, a middle earth enthusiast. I hope to enlighten myself in this wonderful forum and hopefully share some of my limited knowledge of Tolkien's legendarium. I have been obssesed with middle earth since I watched the return of the king move by PJ. It was a great movie and I have lost count the number of times I watched that movie. I recently undertook the endeavor of reading the Lord of the rings.

I have read The Hobbit, The Silmarillion and the lord of the rings. I hope to read HOME some day.

Glorthelion.

Welcome to the forum Glorthelion. I must say, not only are the two elves in your name amongst my favorite Elves (personally Fingolfin is tops though)...but also approving of the quoted flattery. Flattery is always appreciated around here.

Cheers and enjoy the 'Downs.
