You surely can! :D

Welcome to TORC! :)

I understand how overwhelming it can be here so if you have any questions, this is the place to ask them! I or any of my other adoptees will help you out the best we can! :)

oops.

Postby samwiseismyhero » Sun Mar 12, 2006 9:13 am

sorry that i'm posting twice in a row but another question struck me. which would be a good forum to go into?
i first read the books when i was ten and i loved it so much that i really savored all the words. now i try to read them every year. but the book forums seem to just reiterate my previous problem. all the people seem to know each other and i'm not sure if they'll respond kindly to a newbie...
anyways, which forum would be a good forum to go into?
thanks so much for adopting me, and post back soon. :TORC:

Hi samwiseismyhero! (by the way, is there anything we could shorten that too? :D)


TORC is generally quite friendly to newbies :) , a good place to start if you want to get to know people a bit better is in The Emporium's Chat Thread, where you'll find your e-mother, Imi :wink: , and her various adoptees and houseguests conversing. And also me, a veritable cornucopia of useless information. :roll:

Right now you have a silmarill and that represents 50 posts. :)

There's a complete list of post count icons in the first post in case you're interested. :D

You get a sword every 10 posts, and you can have up to 4 swords at a time. :)

Hi Sammie! :D I know I greeted you in the other thread, but that thing moves so fast you probably didn't see it. :P

Doggy? :rofl::rofl::rofl:

That made me laugh so hard! :rofl:

Then could you imagine going to a TORC moot and everyone calling you by your TORC nickname (because, well, that's what we do at TORC moots :P ) and someone yells out, "Here Doggy!"

:rofl::rofl::rofl:

Ahem...anyway - perfect reason why we shouldn't call you that. ;)

And indeed - congrats on your first jewel! :)

Doggy!

But yeah I really don't think if I met anyone I could call them anything other than their TORC name. Especially you Imi and Luthy and Elle. It just be so wierd.

Also being called Rohy would be wierd. You'd have to though since I've haven't told anyone my real name.

Im kind of new here and im looking for help. Tnx Evenstar_of_Imladris for the info on the fron page. I was wondering how you get the different symbols and stuff. Im still wondering how you change the picture above your name. I have noticed that some people who have been on for a long time still have the wizard like me. How do you change it!?

Hello Engwafea! :D

There's a tab at the top of the screen that has a bunch of different buttons on it.

Forums - My Settings - My Info - Register - etc.

Click on "My Settings" and you'll be taken to a page where you can change the picture above your name. If that doesn't work, let me know what comes up when you click on it. You may need to log in to the front page because the front page and forums are separate. :)

Just so you know, posting right after yourself is not encouraged here, but there is a handy dandy "Edit" button that you can use to add in more stuff that you forgot the first time around! :D

I'd be happy to adopt you - the kids in the Emporium would love to get to know you as well! :)

Be sure to stop by the chat thread in Talk. :D

Hi, Engwafea1! Welcom to TORC! I'm one of Imi's adoptee's. We shorten names around here, so Evenstar_of_Imladris is often Eve or Imi. I'm Iris (or Fred, but that's a long story) and the others will tell you as you go along. Do you have a nickname we can call you?

Be sure to read the Terms of Service while you're at it. I keep refering to them myself, and I've been here...what?...nearly three years!

and don't listen to a thing Toby says... :wink:
