Ringers

Recommended Posts

Ok i may be a little slow here, but until Elijah mentioned it on NY Graham Norton, i had no idea thats what LOTR Fans were called! Ive never seen any of us refer to ourselves as that!!! It sounds a bit.....dodgy!! or is that just me?!!?!? How long have we been called Ringers for!?

Too right B) I've heard it before, mainly on theonering.net website, I think they call themselves Ringers, but we should have our own name definitely :D

Mainly americans from the one ring.net lol

 

Tolkinites are scary people who are way to obsessed with Tolkien and hate Peter Jackson for even thinking of doing a film lol

Ringers, comes from theonering.net. They have a new movie coming out called Ringers. It's about all the LoTR fans. Not like Trekkies though, cuz Ringers are more sophisticated :lol: .

 

I'm definitely a Ringer!

 

Cheers!

Yep that's right, while people who frequent the imdb.com boards are more likely to call themselves ringnuts (ie. Wingnut Productions), well I think a couple of other boards have diffferent names as well - once the hype has quientened down a bit, one name will probably stick (I suspect it will be Ringers, because they're one of the biggest on line communities, they have quite a lot of access to the stars at the torn parties and the name has already got publicity). Ahh well, it'll all sort out, after all some Trekkies think of themselevs as Trekkers instead - it's just what you prefer.

I like Ringnuts....

Or Anduin (elvish for 'followers') but it could be a bit OTT
