Feanor, GCSEs are national exams you work towards for two years, doing pieces of externally moderated coursework for each throughout, then take the GCSE exams at the end of Year 11 (American year 10). Most pupils take 8 to 10 GCSE subjects - some schools, especially private ones, take a subject a year early (for example, I got the results of my ICT this Summer, but I do the other 9 next May). The killers are languages - you get about three exams for each!

Arien - welcome back indeed! I hope you got the results you wanted from your GCSEs Are you staying on for AS and A2s?

Lurker Bombadil - LOL, I like the name! Glad you finally decided to join us as a member - welcome in your, erm, new position?

Isilm - Hooray, an RPGer! Welcome to the Downs, Isilm and, well, I'll doubtless see you around the Shire!

Welcome, to all newcomers! Hope you all enjoy being dead!

I've an Announcement, and I thought here would be the best place to post it. I've recently looked up my Elvish name in the name generator, and it is--- Mithhuaniel! so instead of calling me "elronds_daughter" you can call me Mithhuaniel if you like. that's how i'll be signing my posts anymore. it's right down there in my sig, if you noticed.

just thought i'd let you all know.

Mithhie

Welcome, RandomRadagast! Hope to see you around...

There is an FAQ for the Downs, and here is the bit about avatars.

See you around!

Welcome to the Downs, RadomRadagast! Yes, in Novices and Newcommers, you'll find the answer to lots of questions. However, if it's not mentioned there, try Private Messaging someone for the answer BTW (By the way), love the Lord of the Peeps avatar

I'm not really a new member, but I'm coming back (or trying to)! I have school and homework and all that stuff. I was the first student of the week in the school year 04-05. I'm so excited. Well, forgive me for my ignorance for I am from Tennessee and have only seen the hills.

Goodby y'all!

P.S. I highly recommend going to the Festival of Cultures in Cleveland, TN ( sorry, not Ohio) on Saturday, Semptember 18, 2004.

P.P.S. Please remember all of the people who died 3 years ago on 9-11 and our troops in Iraq. May God be with you.

Yeah, yeah, another new guy. I've lurked on the forums for about two years, and I've been hitting the chat a lot recently, so I figured why not register for the site proper.

As expected, I am a rather serious _Rings_ fan; I enjou both the books and the movies, reread the trilogy (plus _The Hobbit_) about once a year, and eagerly await the extended version of ROTK.

Yeah.

Best _Rings_ forum on the 'net. You guys rock.

Silmaril Hi there...

I was once a member on this site, but it`s been a while ago. I`m glad to be back!

I don`t think I would consider myself an expert Tolkienite, if you follow me, but I know more than just about everyone in my town.

Okay, I`m in search of friends, so feel free to e-mail me, or whatever.

Silmaril new to the site

Love this site. I grew up with LOTR and the silmarillion. I can no longer recall how many times I've read them. I had to throw away my copy of the silmarillion the other day (kind of ironic) as It was in poor shape. But plan on buying another of course.

I'm not a newcomer to this site, but I am to the forums. I am a devoted fan to Tolkien. I am fascinated with lotr weaponry, and have been reading about it for about three years. I am a fan of poetry also. I've read a bit of Shakespeare, but not a lot. My favorite play is A Midsummer Night's Dream. I detest anime. I like gaming and art. I am an ametuer graphic design artist and have been interested in graphic design for about a year. I am fascinated with Celtic culture. Anywho, I love this sight and shall post here every day until the day I die (I hope).
