I have to admit. 'Sean Astin' was a funny spammer name. Nov 21, 2017 at 11:25 AM

      The feeling of happy curiosity turning into slightly bitter disappointment when a new forum post turns out to be spam.

        I must say, though, you've been on top of the spam, which gives me a lot of peace of mind about things - I don't feel like I have to watch the forum constantly, because you're beating me to it, more often than not. Hopefully it will taper off eventually....

        They really are a nuisance. During my watch, they are quite active between 0600 and 1600 hrs (CET).

        'Preceding' stuff will have to be somewhat substantial to be interesting to Amazon. Since the Tolkien estate probably are interested in spreading some of the earlier tales, my hope is that this includes Beren and Luthien and The Children of Hurin. Of course the Aragorn and Arwen story and Sauron and the RIng are also great material but riskier.

        Let's not get hasty! Children of Hurin and Beren & Luthien are covered by the Silmarillion copyright. My bet the "earlier material" is from the Tale of Years and appendices. Adventures of Young Aragorn might just become a reality!
        Nov 14, 2017

        Yeah we’ll see. The safest bet is definitely the appendices.

        The article I saw (a different one) was worded very carefully, such that they could have been shopping "LotR as a series", "other Tolkien IP in Middle Earth as a series", or even "original material set in Middle Earth as a series". Or other things.

        Yeah, you seem to catch a lot of these guys faster than I do (as it happens at more reasonable hours for you to be awake!), so if they were to give you moderator powers, then we could tag team the spammers and clean them up even faster. Not sure who to petition for that - it just happened to me one day :P

        If I can catch them as they register, they don't get a chance to post their spam. But that requires a level of constant vigilance that I simply cannot maintain. And obviously, I wouldn't want to ban some actual poster just because their username looks spammy!

    My real name is Håkan, but it wasn't accepted as username. So I chose the Norwegian version of the name. It's close enough. Also, I have Norwegian ancestors.
    I found the Simarillion Seminar on iTunes a couple of years ago. Loved it! Then I began to listen to Riddles in the dark.
