I haven't read many of Tolkiens notes, but if I recall correctly it states in "The Hobbit" that hobbits are hard to find these days because they are smaller and good at hiding from big people like us who go trampling about like a herd of elephants that hobbits can hear from a mile away, and that in "Unfinished Tales" it says that the hobbits dwindled in size, forgeting their arts and hiding away from men in holes? I see no reference that says they leave middle earth, so we can presume they are still there today, unless there is some other source, so can we remove the line saying that they disappeared after the fourth age? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs) 2006-03-10 17:34:06 (UTC)
The "Games" section fails to mention http://t2tmud.org/ which was an online multiplayer dungeon in the 90s and still exists today!
re: (rather old) merge proposal
Looks to me like this article's talkpage hasn't been touched in awhile, let alone the article itself, so I don't know how many eyes are on it at this point, but I think there's merit in either deleting this or merging its content with the Hobbit article... Aside from its apparent, yet-to-be-sourced etymological origins outside of Tolkien's work, this just looks like a list of crufty uses of the term/race in various media, and I'd see more encyclopedic merit as it just being referred to in the Hobbit article for what it is-- just an alternate name for hobbits, both in Tolkien's work and other works (which I see it already does, so that makes this article a little redundant, doesn't it?)
