Evenstar's Emporium of All Things Newbie - Number Three! :o)

Postby Evenstar_of_Imladris » Tue Jan 11, 2005 10:33 pm

Hello! Welcome to TORC! I'm Evenstar_of_Imladris (but you can just call me Eve or Imi ;) ) and I have been a member here for just over 8 years, and an adopter for 6. I'm 25 years old and live in the great state of Washington. I attended Western Michigan University for two years where I was pursuing a degree in secondary English education with a minor in social sciences, but in the fall of 2004, felt called to go into youth ministry. In the meantime, I've been living with a friend from church and working at a hotel where I've been the front desk supervisor for over 3 years. In my spare time I absolutely love to sing (singing is my life!), read, watch movies (I am a movie buff), hang out with my friends, and just have a good time! I am a Christian, and living in such a way is very important to me. That's pretty much me in a nutshell, but if you want to know anything else please feel free to ask. :)

I know that this site can be a bit overwhelming, but that's what I'm here for! In this post you will find invaluable information about TORC (such as: TORC stands for TheOneRing.com, the site name ;) ) which I will provide through links and lists and all sorts of stuff!

Alright, let's get to it! :D

If you need to contact me privately for any reason at all, feel free to e-mail me: beckelasquish@gmail.com

Terms of Service

A Comprehensive Introduction to this Board

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are the MODS?

Comprehensive List of Abbreviations

If you have any technical problems while visiting the site, post them here (The One Ring Forum).

Now that you've gotten a brief overview of the site and its basic guidelines, let's take a look at some specific forum guidelines:

Literature

Guidelines for the Books (Tolkien)

The Big List of the Best �Books� Threads

Language Forum Guidelines

Guidelines, Links, and Useful Information (Virtual Tolkien Study Group)

Movies

The Movies (LotR) Forum - What you Need to Know

Guidelines for Fandom

Community

Tom�s House Guidelines

Guidelines and Rules for Role-Playing (Prancing Pony)

Guidelines and Rules for Role-Playing (Green Dragon Inn)

The above two threads are very important if you intend on role-playing!



Okay, now that we've got that out of the way, here is some information that I get asked for the most often from new posters:

Icons under your screen name and what they mean

- sword = 10 posts (you may have up to 4 at one time)
- diamond = 50 posts (at the most 1)
- red shield = 100 posts (you may have up to 4 at one time)
- green (Rohan) shield = 500 posts (at the most 1)
- black (Gondor) shield = 1000 posts (you may have up to 4 at one time)
- blue (mariner�s) shield = 5000 posts (at the most 1)
- The One Ring = 10,000 posts (unknown maximum)

The "Title" just below your Nickname indicates your ranking as follows:

Petitioner to the Council - 1 post
Citizen of Imladris - 21 posts
Shield Bearer - 101 posts
Rider of the Mark - 501 posts
Ranger of the North - 1,001 posts
Mariner - 5,001 posts
Ringbearer - 10,001 posts
!?!?!?!? 50,001

Okay! That was fun, wasn't it? :)

WhooooOOOOOooooooOOOOOooooooo!!! I'm on the list! :D:D:D

Note to n00bs: I'm not a member of the family. I'm more like a persistant bad smell which they just can't work out how to get rid of. ;)

There you are, Pips!
Hard to navigate this behemoth labyrinth of a message board.
Got your post in Fandom.
Wanted to ask: Where's the quote from?
(The green cabbage bit)

Celti

P.S. "û" I'm experimenting with accents. I can't make any of the functions work. Seems I'll have to cut, paste and edit to get them. :angry:

P.P.S.
Evenstar: Hope you don't mind my entering your house w/o an invite. I was adopted by Bloomgirl6, but have been venturing out on my own to other forums, met Pips there, and (s)/he invited me over. :D

P.P.P.S.
I'm more like a persistant bad smell which they just can't work out how to get rid of.
Have you tried bathing? I'm told that works wonders *nudging and winking so you know it's all in gentle fun* :D

You're more than welcome to visit Celti - I can list you as a houseguest, if you'd like. :)

Feel free to investigate our chat thread in the Talk forum, too. :D

Horray! Celti found the thread! :D
Though I had no idea you'd been adopted already! :Q

'Not so green as I'm/she's/he's/they're cabbage looking' is a traditional saying in England, meaning that a person isn't all they seem to be, and isn't as stupid as they look.
I got Terry Pratchett's book The Discworld Almanak for Christmas, and it contains "a great deal of intrest about cabbages". :rofl: It just reminded me of that strange old saying and I also thought that if I used it it would remind people that I'm female... not that they ever need reminding. :P;)

I think you ought to know that I can't make accents work either, and it's my third anniversary in a few days. :D

Oh yeah, and bathing is for the weak. =:)

"a great deal of intrest about cabbages"......

Perhaps the smell is of cabbage? Not very nice at all, when they're cooked, is they precious?

Is general chat more acceptable in this forum/thread or in the other one you mentioned. I checked it out too. A lot of these are like going to a cocktail party where you don't know anyone...you walk up to a group of people laughing and talking and say hello, and they all fall silent and turn to look at you dripping with... something, I can't quite find the word I want.

But Evenstar's group don't do that, do they?
Do they, Gandalf?

Nah, we're not like that - we looooove everybody - the more the merrier! :D

And the reason we have the chat thread in the Talk forum is so that chat can stay out of this thread and then relevant questions about the site and whatnot can be answered here and then people don't have to sift through all the socializing just to find out what alliances are and such. :)

Coolio. :wink:
I'll try to stick to newbie-type questions and Tolkien forum-type stuff here and general small talk in your talk emporium.

Wow, I wander back in Adoptions and there's a new Imi thread!

I never really got around to asking, and as I'm almost a TORC year old, but will you adopt me? :hug: :happydance:

I usually just pop in at rare moments; I spend most of my time in Tom's House and dabble a bit everywhere else. I'm Lim, by the way. Welcome to TORC, Celti.

Where do you guys get accents? They're all on my keyboard if you press 'em right...see...

TÔRÇ ïs übér. :)

Well, this thread isn't for chatting which is why there aren't too many folks from the family hanging around here. :)

There's a whole bunch of people who post in the thread in Talk - they would love to see you, I'm sure! :D
