    I woke up in a very nostalgic mood this morning for some reason and one of the things I was thinking about was LoTRonline and fanspot.

    I remember when I first joined even though there were only like 10 people I was so nervous to post and the one time I did post I was yelled at for referring to Viggo Morteson as Aragorn so then I just remained silent and kept reading. Then I met YayGollum and started to get more active...probably at one point too active :)rolleyes: )


    What are your memories of when you first joined (whether it was LoTRO, Fanspot, FV, or TFF)

    Wow, I remember them. . .except it was airelomiriel (I think). Wow, I'm old, I think I was on fanspot even before you leggy, because I know I joined before the spinning wheel.

    I remember what it was like being a noob, you are afraid of doing something wrong. . .

    How many of us from LOTROnline are left, anyway?
