Welcome Cock-Robin

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Welcome Cock-Robin

Postby sandra » Sat Aug 27, 2011 5:52 am

That was what I tried to post back in 2001. Would Torc let me.....No! :x

I made several attempts, all failing. For those of you that were about here at that time may remember the small screen that appeared if you used 'bad language'.

'The Word you have used is FORBIDDEN'

You couldn't post anything unless you removed that word unlike today when your post is allowed and the forbidden word appears as 'pottymouth.'
Of course the problem was the first part of your Id. I still can't work out how you enrolled if it wasn't permitted in a post.

Amusingly, others followed.

Arwen740...........Welcome 'Cookie'-robin
BrambleRose...... Hello Robin
MrsTook.............Hi c*ck robin

And so on. We all gave up and followed your sig of CR in the end. That was our first meeting if I remember rightly. The hugging guild, 15 Sept 2001. Many of those posting with you in that thread have either moved on or only stop by occasionally. Broken-Arrow, Gwendalar, Speaker to animals, Harvester, Haefalas, tuile, Arwen740, RavenTinuvel, MrsTook, Silmarill, TerryD and fpshimmer to name a few of so many wonderful posters.

However, you have stuck fast and have grown with Torc. Spreading those great wings into discussions and Rp. Always with confidence, politeness, humour and kindness. Long may you post at this board :)

Happy 10th for the 5th!

Oh, yes, I remember that, and how frustrated I was when the server blocked my attempts to sign the post "Cock-Robin." I finally had to shorten it to CR when I signed the post. It's too bad that the vulgar TOS violation usage of the word ruined it for me. It wasn't what I intended, but based it on the nickname given the hobbit Robin Smallburrow in ROTK(the book).

That is a cute story and it is funny that they would let you sign up with a name that was considered a TOS violation. :roflmbo: But then again I have an ID of "TOS Violation" too. ;) :twisted: It was just for fun in an April Fools thread we started a few years ago. :whistle:

Only a week! Yeah! And yes, I did have problems. Of course, I was using the computers at the local library at the time. And TORC kept crashing or freezing up at times when I tried to log in. But most of those bugs have been worked out.

For a while, I was away from TORC, going over to The Stone Table, which is a C.S. Lewis board quite similar to TORC. (It's run by Jonathan as this one is.) I was away from here for so long, I forgot the password, and for a while TORC wouldn't give it to me. BUt they finally did, and I was back.

And I'm glad.

:shock: :o

I think crashing computers and slow connections with eager fingers were mostly to blame. It was very common to see double and triple posts and we even had the odd double thread back then.

Vana, we love you too hon :hihi:

Yep, I know that, Sandra. :rofl: TORC was quite uncooperative back then. I even saw a quintuple post done by somebody in that thread. But I'm glad the bugs are all out and it works fine now. I haven't done a triple post, for which I was notorious, in years.
