[Un] Should Hobbiton be accessible afte you leave it?

The canonical Unangband answer is no; the current answer is yes. Choose wisely.

I could do some half-way house such as making it accessible only if you're a beginner.

How about only after completing certain tasks? So, for example, after killing Smaug you have the opportunity to go back to Hobbiton again, but once you leave (or if you pass up the opportunity) you don't get to go back until after the next task.

I voted 'no' even though I suggested the opposite in the complain thread. Hmm..

I voted 'no', but actually I'd like it to be accessible but only in late-game, just as in the books, or somewhat earlier. But then, not accessible together with 10 other towns, but with 1 or just alone, allowing the character to pass through on the way, or retire there.

I played a lot of TOME and, while the wilderness was interesting, the ability to scum 4 cities at once was too much for my honesty. I couldn't resist and couldn't even track the exact moment when going between cities changed from role-playing to boring scumming. And when I complained the shops didn't stack necessary items I was responded "oh, well, you could just go to another city".

Well you DO already pass through Hobbiton again later in the game. It has an Acid river though

Psst, don't spoil me.

It's just what I'd like, however.
