I saw one in an eBay advert a few years ago (maybe four or five years back). Of course, it could be the same one as this.

Thanks for moderating, Khamul and Trotter! I have been out of the country (adopting my second daughter) for the month, and mostly away from the computer and unable to stay on top of things here. Back now, and should be able to start sharing more news, and working on the site fixing things and clearing out spam bots! Hope to make that process easier as well.

I have not put in a CAPTCHA system yet, because they tend to annoy real people much more than they slow down bots. I will improve the system though, one way or another.


Congratulations with regards to the adoption!

In terms of the CAPTCHA, perhaps an alternative would be some random single word Tolkien questions. Get two out of three correct and your user gets created, if not then bad luck. I imagine the number of fraudulent/bot attempts at new users significantly exceeds the number of legitimate new users (?), plus registration is a one time deal, so a few minutes extra effort at that point beats you guys having to waste time deleting users and dodgy posts down the line, I would have thought.

For anyone in the UK, this seems like a good price for the deluxe (GBP 42.59 at the time of writing):

I notice Amazon is now down to GBP 55.

Is there no CAPTCHA for setting up new members, hence the bogus new ones and spam?

The standard version will have a lower price.

I think the de luxe edition could be signed, due that price.



It seems most unlikely that it would be signed, IMHO.
