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 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) 2006-03-10 17:34:06 (UTC)
Re this edit: "grading" looks wrong to me - isn't that the American term? - but "rating" doesn't feel right either. What verb is used in the Carpenter source? [Any why don't I have a copy?] -- John of Reading (talk) 07:52, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
- Carpenter doesn't mention school papers at all. In Letter 163 (p. 215), JRRT says he was "correcting" School Certificate papers. That's probably a better word, since "grading" and "rating" seem to reside across another Great Water divide. -- Elphion (talk) 14:47, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
The "Games" section fails to mention http://t2tmud.org/ which was an online multiplayer dungeon in the 90s and still exists today!
