Does Samnorsk literally translated to "same-Norsk" or does it just look that way? I'm getting contrary messages while poking around online trying to find out, but I'm also really tired so just asking is easier. Razz

Yeah, pretty much. But sam- has a more... 'team' feeling. We've got a lot of words like that.

We have a clueless president, and our economy's going gang-busters. Make of that what you will.

Suspect So, Halfie, funny coincidence finding you here. We just had a really efficient council meeting and decided it was time for your flee bath, we thought we'd show our generosity and book you for the really deep working one done by real pros, a bit of hair loss is to be expected of course, but the flees will be so, so dead. What do you think?

Ooooh, I see the error. This brochure I've got was meant to be delivered to Petty, not the council. That mail boy is so FIRED.

I've learned a lot about how to deal with baths by watching dogs.



Actually if you can set me up with a good blow-out afterwards, I may be interested.

Fandom-historical fact of the day: as of a week ago Amarië passed Ady to become the second-longest serving Forumshire admin, as well as the third-longest serving admin of any Hobbit movie forum of our generation (those founded after the the project was announced in December 2007).

Norway


If anyone is interested here's a ranked list based on my original notes from 2010-ish that I periodically updated until a few years ago.

Smaug - thehobbit-movie.com - 8 years, 3 months
Eldorion - hobbitmovieforum.com - 4 years, 11 months
Amarië - hobbitmovieforum.com - 2 years, 2 months, and counting
Ady - the-hobbit-movie.com - 2 years, 2 months*
Emmie - hobbitforums.com - 2 years, 1 month
Taz - the-hobbit-movie.com - 2 years, 0 months**

*Rounded figure; Am's ahead on days.
**Counting from when he created the new forum of "Bree". If you count from DPD he also did 2 years, 2 months (rounded) and Am will equal his tenure as of tomorrow.

In the case the of Emmie (and many of the admins of other forums who didn't make this list) the end date is when she made her last post, not when the zombie forum finally went offline. Like my forum statistics project (which was sort of an outgrowth of my keeping tabs on other Hobbit forums), it does not include gaming-centric sites.

third-longest serving admin of any Hobbit movie forum of our generation

I so love the way you take a little statistic fun fact of 2 years, 2 months and a few days and turn it into a reason for praise and celebration! Kissing

Cheers all! pub

Six years as of 2 May. Smile You'd played a central role in the forum's functioning for a long time before then, of course, but you and Am officially became moderators on that date.

Here's everyone* who has been a mod or admin (or both) since the founding of Forumshire in December 2008:

Amarië: 5 years, 11 months, and counting
Orwell: 5 years, 11 months, and counting
Eldo: 5 years, 0 months
Petty: 4 years, 7 months
Gandalf's Beard: 2 years, 3 months
Ady: 2 years, 2 months
Beren: less than 1 year, 10 months
Durin: less than 1 year, 10 months
Zackira: less than 1 year, 10 months
Ally: 6 months
Baingil: 6 months
Show: less than 5 months
Otto's World: less than 5 months
Lothierial: less than 5 months

*There might've been one or two other mods from the Old Forum who I'm forgetting.

Miscellaneous footnotes: Ally and GB both remained on the mod roster for some time after they stopped being active (GB for almost two years) but I haven't included that in the totals here. I don't have a way of easily checking when the other mods from the Old Forum ceased posting, but I know that all of them except Beren, Durin, and Zackira were gone by the time I became active in fall 2009. On the other hand, Baingil was only officially an admin for about four months, but she performed ad hoc tech admin duties (including redoing the forum theme) before being officially promoted, as well as consulting on forum decisions since there was no Council back then.

(And no, I did not know all of this offhand; I had to check a few things just now. Pokey Tongue)
