Communications With Gordon Paddison
Elenaran sent an e-mail to Mr. Paddison, who is a New Line
executive with connections to the official LOTR web site, a few months ago and got some
good information. Now he's done it again.

Dear Mr. Paddison:
A few months ago I wrote you concerning the
logo on the www.lordoftherings.net site.
The email was about the type of script used on the logo. It was/is Old
English and I suggested Cirth/Angerthas or Tengwar. You responded and said you liked the
idea. I was just wondering what ever became of it? Are you still considering
changing the logo?
Thank you again,
Here is Mr. Paddison's reply:

The site for LOTR will relaunch at the top of the millennium (or late Jan). I did indeed
discuss with design teams your comments and I am very interested. However, because the
design style is currently being used on our distributor brochures, we will continue to use
this treatment for the upcoming initial relaunch. However, there were several minor
inconsistencies that will be corrected in the script (these were done in consultation with
filmmakers and lanugage experts).
Thank you for your interest and I hope that the project can live up to the expectations of
the most wonderful fans of the property.
So, it looks like the new official site won't
be launching in mid-December as expected. Suprise, suprise. We'll all just have to be
patient until January.
