could have picked community for many of the same reasons given here, yet I chose OTHER

If I could, I would have chose everything! :-D I chose the number of different sections, though.

I put the graphics, because that's what really caught my eye when I stumbled onto the main page, but also it's defiinitely the large community and number of sections to explore! I've never been to a big (and more friendly :) ) LotR fansite!

I think the many information in the site is very useful for all fans of LOTR (especially of the movies) and when people discover it they just keep coming back to see more and more. I think the good-looking appearance also helps the site to be popular and unique.

What originally drew me to A-U was the large amount of content to look through. You have some great stuff here.

I say that the uniqeness is caused by so many viruses that like Star Wars posting in this LOTR forum cram it up so those that want to talk LOTR don't have to listen to the Star Wars obsessers blab on and on about Yoda and how cute Anakin is. I suggest immediate deletion of all star wars posts to fix this error.

I actually think that all of them makes A-U unique, but I choose the community, because since it is so great all of these wonderful people come to visit!! :)

I chose "other" because I think it's a combination of all of them. All forums need many devoted and loyal members who contribute. This forum also has many, many things to keep people busy, so that's a definete plus! If there was nothing new to talk about, people wouldn't be interested! There's also a section for just about anything. Not just LotR is covered here. People can talk about other movies, books, and many other things! I love that. And one of the things that I noticed from the very beginning is that although this forum is large with lots of people who visit, everyone here is always polite and respectful.
Great job everyone!! :wave:
