A-U Revival 2011
In January 2011, after many discussions regarding the future of A-U, it was decided between members of the A-U forum and Arweb (Arwen the Webmaster) that the job of keeping the site up and running would be passed onto certain members. Meaning that anyone who was willing to gather new content or check the site for areas that needed improving, were more than welcome to help with the revival. So, too, were the countless people sharing their thoughts and ideas for a revived A-U. So far this collaboration of skills and ideas has resulted in a new site layout and matching forum skin, as well as many improvements that can be seen throughout the site. There is still much work to be done, and although this will not be completed overnight, Arwen-Undomiel.com is more so than ever, a community working together and you can be a part too!
Why the Donate Button?
This site costs money to run! Since Arweb is handing over the managerial duties to the members, the members also need to pick up the bill. We have all for many years, been appreciating the wealth of information on A-U for free, so now it is our turn to help. The donate button on the main page is there for anyone who wishes to support A-U. Every donation no matter how big or how small will go into making sure A-U can keep running smoothly. If you are willing to assist us in this way, the process using Paypal is a very easy, and most importantly safe one (the company is owned by eBay and used as a form of payment on many hundreds of websites), all you need is a credit card and you can securely make a payment. Currently, the money is going to Arweb - we aren't running away to our own private island in the Caribbean just yet....
I'd Like to See This On A-U...
If you would like to see certain changes made or want to help out with the site, then join the forum! Forum members are the ones working on the Revival, so if you have ideas or comments you can tell us really easily over there. You can also direct us towards new LotR humor, fan work, or images that we may want to add to the site. But if you don't wish to join us (we don't bite... much), you can also leave any comments/suggestions/brainwaves/ideas on the guestbook or you can even contact us on contact [at] arwen-undomiel.com (just replace the "at" with the @ sign and remove the spaces). We're very accessible.
