  5 Years - Just Like That! - Site News

Can you all believe it! It's been 5 years already since I took over LotRFiles in 2004, it's been a check of a long journey but it's seemed so fast. So much has changed not only here but in my life, it seems as though this site and all of you have made these 5 years go by so fast and by the way that's a compliment wink

I've had some of my greatest achievements here, and the community has been so supportive back when I first started, not giving me any trouble even though I was quite an established person within in competing and Clanwars and such many of the modding community really never heard of me.

But that was soon to change, with about 1 month of me starting I got promoted and the site was changing from just bog standard files and news to replays and strategy as well. The site boomed and heavily, with all types of BFME players coming in from all areas of the game, some checking out the guides, some for mods and some for maps. Even though I've brought a lot to LotRFiles I've always tried to support the maps and mods as much as I could because really that's what keeps this game going and to be honest always will.

FileFront has been so supportive since I first started giving me rights that I thought I wouldn't even get the chance to feel. They've entrusted me with this site and community and I've taken the chance and hopefully done the best I could have. This doesn't mean the end, I'll keep going as I still want this community to keep going, and yes I'm still working on the new Mod Center which is looking awesome by the way!

It's been an honour to serve and will look to serve this community and this company as long as the ring is theirs to bare (had to put in some LotR there big grin).

Thank you for these great 5 years!
