    The time has come to pass TTF to a new owner.

    I've truly enjoyed and have been proud to have hosted The Tolkien Forum for all these years, but I simply do not have the time to properly do so any longer. I know this is sudden, but now is as good a time as any for these changes to take place.

    The new owners will be posting soon.

    More to come ...

    It's been my pleasure.

    Who knows, maybe now you all will get those banners you've been pining for. :)

    There has been and I think I'm the only active moderator right now. I check a few times daily and ban/delete any spam that I can but it just never stops...

    Appreciate your efforts much!
    There must not be a trap on the registration here as I see a lot of these ads appearing on the profile posts as well.

    I thought they setup a question for joining but it must not be super difficult. I always check recent activity so that I can see when they set their home pages and profile posts too and then ban em all ;)
