    Hello there, I'm new. Obviously. I'm a regular member on The Tolkien Forum, if anyone else has been there, and I was searching on TolkienWorld (I think) and found this. So, yeah, hello.

    How much I'll participate is definately questionable, but I can see myself popping up once in a while, posting for a bit then disappearing again :rolleyes:

    Please don't shun me ;)

    Woooohooo!!!! (suprised) Great to see you, Craig, hope you drop by often :).

    Everyone say 'hi' to CraigSmith!!! :)

    BTW, as far as I know, he actually hates to be called 'CraigSmith' so you can just call him Craig :D


    And no, Craig, you don't know me, but you're known well enough :p

    What the hell? :confused: Care to explain...?

    But that's right, call me Craig - I use the name CraigSmith because, well, it's my name, and because if I use some cool looking pseydonum (however you spell it), I'd just get bored after a while. So, Craig's easiest.

    But who are you?

    Was sans internet for a couple of days.

    What's with the ''rolling-eye syndrome'' :D?

    Anyways, I had no intentions to freak you out, sorry about that.

    So where the hell do I know you from? Think ;). How many CraigSmiths can there be out there? And now, let's imagine the TTF banner. Remember the line just below the banner that says ''Welcome to our newest member, ___''. So, this time, long-long time ago, it says ''Welcome to our newest member, CraigSmith'' and what I think is ''There's no way that someone's chosen his real name as a user name. This guy will never post.'' It's a good thing I didn't bet on it :D.

    It's always nice to meet another TTF-er in a most unexpected place :).

    If you want to avoid being recognised, I recommend a 'Mirkwood' name and a Legolas avatar ;)...

    I'm just amazed that you can remember that from May 2002! And yes, as well you didn't bet on that, I've recently passed 900 posts, and if you count posts that don't count towards the count (ie, non-Tolkien ones), I'm over 1500 :p
    Well, can you call it unexpected? I mean, you're more likely to meet someone on another fantasy forum than you are down at the shops, for example :rolleyes:
    I don't mind being recognised, infact, I'm all for that, I was just surprised to meet someone else that knew of me. So, are you one of the many people that have the words 'Legolas' and 'Luver' in their names? And do you still partake in posting there, if I may ask? :D
    And another Douglas Adams fan, I see :D (asap's sig, for anyone that didn't notice :rolleyes: )

    Heheh, you'd be really amazed if you knew how much of that sort of weird random useless information I carry around with me... ;)

    Never been much of a poster myself, spent my first four months at TTF without even registering, sometimes sat there for days in a row, just reading. Love that place. Have never been a very active poster though.

    True :). Once there actually used to be a few TTF'ers around here, but I'm not sure if they're still around. Haven't seen any lately.

    I would rather be known as 'TheOneWhoWetstheBed' then 'Glorfindl'sOneTrueLuv' :D

    As for my sig, you're actually the first one around here who recognised the quote :)

    Really? Now, that really surprises me, after all, Douglas Adams is a legend!
    Oh well, maybe they'll see my user name eventually and think, "Hey! That's Craig!"... which would be nice :rolleyes:

    Hey, a dancing banana! :banana:

    *checks the member list* Nope, sorry, don't see any of them around... Must have gotten lost on the road.

    Oh well, change of company is only supposed to be good for you ;) ... have fun here :)


    Re: banana
    The banana seems to be everyone's absolute favourite :))

    Oh well, maybe someday, eh? At least they'll recognise me straight away, they won't you :p Due to me having the same name :D
    Maybe I will, or maybe I'll be too busy, the latter is increasingly more likely. I've been back at school a week, and already the work is weighing me under!
    Not surprising, it's cool :D Let's see, what else have we got?

    A can of spam! :spam: !

    A penguin! :penguin: !

    And a dead monkey! :dmonkey:

    That's enough of that, I think...

    EDIT: Except, you can't use the penguin one, because it comes up with :p first...

    Hehehehe, that's stupid :D

    I think I'll go and look if I can find someone who will fix it...

    *trots off*
