Do you recall whether it sold &/or for what price, Stu?

Sorry, I don't. I think it might have been a Buy It Now, where the asking price was above what seemed reasonable. I think at the time I was possibly looking for the HC super deluxe and it didn't look good value relative to one of those.

I guess one of the advantages of being a Hobbit is you can easily hide inside other things.

Seriously, though - you have to ask what the seller is thinking. And if the seller isn't the same person as glued the book inside the cover of a different one, you have to ask what they were thinking.

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.
