Service Announcement on Registrations

From the Engine Room: due to the large number of malware/spam bots attempting to register on the site every day (which has now come to the attention of the website provider, too) I have temporarily suspended access to the registration webform. Registration is still possible, but only I can do it, so if you'd like to become a member of Aglardh please send me an email.


Thank you and apologies for any inconvenience caused. I will be looking into addressing the issue via a security module in the future.

Posthumous portrait of Keats by William Hilton

As it's the 200th anniversary of the death of the romantic poet John Keats, here's the Quenya translation of one of his poems that he wrote on the death of a favourite bird he'd been keeping.

I took some licence by assuming a shortening of manan to ma'n in fast speech and in poetry, but the lines would've been overlong otherwise.
