I had to put other. All the choices were valid to be sure, but I think the friendliness and sense of community is the most unique thing. Most other forums are cold and unfriendly, but just the welcome I received was overwhelming. Great all around, for newbies and oldies.

Truly astonishing how this site is 90% 13-17 year old girls. You wonder how it all happens.

Definitely the many sections to explore. I've hardly seen any other fan sites with so many different topics. But I think the large community is unique as well as the layout and the photo galleries.

^That's what I was thinking! :lol:

There are so very many different things that set A-U apart and make it special and unique. :) I just went with "The number of different sections to explore," but really, this site is very special. There is just so much to it!

I think the atmosphere makes this forum unique. I've seen other LotR forums and people are just flaming and nagging at each other. this is the number one forum! :)

I voted for large community because I have seen other forums and even though there are large communities, they are not as friendly as A-U.

I'd have to say the large community, the many places to explore and the graphics. Its just a more "Mature" site does that make since? you can tell its been around the block a few times and it gets better everytime!

The lovely graphics, layouts, and the way the forum is divided. Also the large choice of emoties and the different ranks. :-D

EDIT:There's also the signature size. The Dancing Lawn(my primary forum-although this one's getting more usage from me...) only allows one banner with a size limit of 550 x 250, or visa versa. It used to be bigger... :confused:
