==About Me==
I'm '''Mith''' and I'm a 30-year-old [[Tolkienists|tolkienist]]/tolkienologist/Tolkien-enthusiast (whichever you like) from [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sussex Sussex] in the UK, and I am an ''administrator'', ''community manager'', and ''dates supervisor'' here on the Tolkien Gateway (TG). I have been a member of this website and community for over ten years and although my contributions are only modest, I hope they go some way to making this wiki the best online Tolkien resource.

I'm '''Mith''' and I'm a 26-year-old [[Tolkienists|tolkienist]]/tolkienologist/Tolkien-enthusiast (whichever you like) from [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sussex Sussex] in the UK, and I am an ''administrator'', ''community manager'', and ''dates supervisor'' here on the Tolkien Gateway (TG). I have a BA in Politics from the [http://www.sussex.ac.uk University of Sussex], and am working in communications and standing as a [[wikipedia:Conservative Party (UK)|Conservative Party]] candidate in the next set of elections. I have been a member of this website and community for over seven years - although I was aware of it for some time before them - and although my contributions are only modest, I hope they go some way to making this wiki the best online Tolkien resource.
  
With regards to Tolkien, the areas which really interest me are: [[languages]], [[Tengwar]], genealogies, maps, calendars, and the history of the [[First Age]]. In fact, almost everything within the [[legendarium]]!

With regards to Tolkien, the areas which really interest me are: [[languages]], [[Tengwar]], genealogies, maps, calendars, and the history of the [[First Age]]. In fact, almost everything within the [[legendarium]]! Beyond TG, I am also the Chairman of [[The Tolkien Society]] hoping to modernise its image, events and functions and introduce as many people as possible to the professor's works.
  
The name ''Mith'' is a contraction of the name [[Gandalf|Mithrandir]] (the [[Sindarin]] name for [[Gandalf]]) which is the name I've used for myself on many Tolkien websites over the last eighteen years.

The name ''Mith'' is a contraction of the name [[Gandalf|Mithrandir]] (the [[Sindarin]] name for [[Gandalf]]) which is the name I've used for myself on many Tolkien websites over the last eleven years. I would, like other members, use the [[Quenya]] translation of my name (''Erufailon''), but I personally think it's a bit ugly.
  
When I'm not here, I enjoy learning about everything in general (I'm a hoarder of useless information), but in particular I really like learning about language (in particular, English history, etymologies of words, etc.), politics (especially British government and politics), and British history. I'm also an avid fan of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo Nintendo], [[wikipedia:Lego|Lego]], going to the cinema, and eating!
