Those were the days....when I could get on anytime I wanted after school, and stay up late RPing. College made it a little harder, but somewhat doable. But now, I have a FT job that requires call off-hours and working every other weekend, got married little over a year ago, and now we are in the process of moving to a completely new state 10 hours away. @_@ I miss the old days of no worries....

You and me both! I stalked this site in my younger years! Lol I was almost always on and loved every minute of it.

Those are the types of people we need to somehow draw in. Ones that have a passion and the time to persue it.

There are so many active LOTR people on tumblr. Some of them have 20,000+ followers. Maybe some of them will put in a good word for AU. I can ask.

That would be awasome!

That is a ton of followers even if only half of them are active. A boost like that would be just what the forum needs maybe!

I'm hoping so! I sent out requests today for
those bloggers to mention us to their followers.
I'll update when I hear back. I'll probably get
a response in a day or two. Usually people on
tumblr respond in a day though. :)

Cool! Thanks. :). Appreciate the effort. I am eager to hear back about the response.


Currently O have been systamatically Provate Messaging everyone on the forum members list who has not been active in the past 4-5 months. I know a lot of them are set to recieve an e-mail to notify them of PMs and I figured I might reach a few that way.

Out of 700 PMs I have got 3 responses. Lol so not a total waist but it is slow going with my scheduel.

Wow Jax, that's a lot of work you've been putting in!!

I'm sad to report that I haven't heard back from a single person I messaged on tumblr. :/ I will try again in a few weeks. Tumblr people can be a little touchy sometimes about you asking them for a "promo" like this. Also tumblr is known for eating your messages before they actually reach the recipient so that might've happened with the messages too. *sigh*

Well... It's worth a try. *shrugs*



Hmm... Well, hopefully on subsequent tries you will get a few results.

Ah, that's no fun... Not even knowing wjether the message made it or if people were just unresponsive.

I hope that we can get this forum back to the way that it used to be. I remember how excited I was to log on every single day.

Same here! Logging on here was the highlight of my day way back when. Still love this place.

I'm afraid most of our efforts came to little fruition but if you have any ideas and suggestions I've not given up entirely on trying to get this place popular again.

Well, do we know who created this forum and site? Does anyone have contact with them?

Yes, Arweb (Arwen the Web Master) She is on facebook and can be reached (sometimes) through the facebook group. I have contacted her personally in the past about the site.

Basically she said she is too busy with work and life to really dedicate any amount of time to the forum but she did say she will always continue to host and maintain it as long as there are still people active. She just can't/won't take the time and money to actually "Run" it the way it needs to be run in order to be current and up to date etc...
