For the month of February, everyone who contributes to TCG (discussion forums, classifieds, links, Guide entries, news, comments) will have their name put in a drawing for a free giveaway. I've pulled a few mathoms for the winner to choose one of - the others (and hopefully some new ones) to be up again if this is popular enough to be a regular thing.

For those areas that anonymous posts are active, as long as I can figure out who you are you'll be entered as well.

Please let me know if you like this idea! (Hey, that'll enter you in the drawing.)

This month's options to choose from:

A. 2005 16 month "The Tolkien Art of the Brothers Hildebrant" calendar, still brand new and sealed in shrinkwrap.

B. Orcrist #3 (Tolkien Journal Vol. 4. no. 1, whole number 11) - Cover art "The Hornberg in Helm's Deep" by Tim Kirk. Orcrist no. 3 page in TCG

C. Four vintage 1960's buttons - "Frodo Lives" (green and red), "Tolkien is Hobbit Forming", "Come to Middle-earth". (Yes, they are a bit stained - they're old!)

Is it one entry no matter how many times you post? Or one entry for each post? If it's the latter, you'll not see the end of me!

Seriously, I think it a nice idea. I have the calendar (big surprise, wot?) I'm with Beren in thinking the buttons are cool (and wouldn't take up much space in my already crowded home).

In Belgium they are very hard to find... I think most of them are in America anyways. So to me they look very cool...

Hey Guys,

my intent was to encourage new visitors to speak up a bit, so the February contest is one entry per person (nothing against Beren, who would otherwise have about a 50% chance of winning the buttons.) Please don't stop posting though!

Sounds like the buttons are popular enough to be a repeat mathom for a future drawing (or swapping, or as thank yous to those who support the site a lot.) I have extras...

Those buttons are nice. I have many contemporary ones, but haven't found many vintage 60s buttons so far.

Haha... well maybe we need to make some commercial for the boards on all our personal sites... maybe that way we'll get some more members.

I can't argue with more advertising (yes please!), but numbers are growing reasonably for such a young site. I think the amount of discussion / traffic will go up exponentially when I actually get some book content on here instead of all this other stuff. (There are just so many good book sites, I always find myself poking at fanzines or other items that are hard to find online... I really will start the US book upload soon, I have a ton of scans and info to do.)

And the winner for the February drawing is.... Dior! I used random.org to generate a random number against my list of contributors, so you were chosen by atmospheric noise.

Let me know what you would like on or offline, and I'll get it off to you. I'll have a list of mathom's for March as soon as you pick something, and the list of contributors is already gathering.

Well done Dior! That was a nice gesture... Does anyone know by chance more about "Remy"... he has done some posts here. But I can't find more info and wish to contact him (her).
