This is a re-creation of a poll by Drevnibor that was published on January 3, 2016.

J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings has many important characters, and for years, both fans and critics have been arguing... who, exactly, is the central* character of The Lord of the Rings' story?

*central in a very broad sense of the word - you can interpret it any way you want

Tolkien himself told that Sam is the true hero of the story

I would say Sam. But there's so many layers that you could make a good argument for any of the characters you listed.

Question: Would it be okay for some of us poll authors to re-create the character polls of other users that are no longer publishing polls? I wanted to re-create a few of Rafael_M's polls but I wouldn't know how to reach out to him and ask for permission (since he hasn't been making polls in quite a while, I figured it would be okay...)

You raise an interesting question.
I'm not sure what to do. I suggest you ask Dan in private about this.

Since Drevnibor deleted his account a while back, it is impossible for him to re-create his own polls. He gave me his permisson to do so.

Kyle,

I can send Raf an email to ask his permission on your behalf when I get a chance.
If you have not already do so, send me an email that I can forward to Raf.

I am getting a lot more emails as a result of the character polls going away. Please be patient with me regarding my answering your emails.
