Copenhagen gears up for fun

There will be a Lord of the Rings Fair in Copenhagen, Denmark, on November 30 and December 1, 2002. It is being billed as a “traditional trade fair with various stands (selling merchandise, toys, books, games or something else to do with Lord of the Rings) and a big show for the entertainment of the many fans (guest stars, price draws, actors in costumes, grand displays, etc”.

A bit lazy or a bit annoyed?

A lot of people have been submitting to the gallery lately – thanks so much for all the great new images! However, there’s one rule that’s been frequently neglected: some of the images that we’re getting are over 600 pixels wide. This means that the Gallery Admin *coughmecough* has to resize them so they can fit properly in the gallery. I don’t have a problem with doing this, but it is one of the rules, and breaking it is just like breaking any other. Please take your time in reading the rules (any and all) carefully before submitting anything: this saves us all a lot of time! Thank you!
