Rune and DD:The Leatherers Lair of N00blieness V2 c/o H4x0r

Postby ddraigwen » Mon Mar 07, 2005 2:36 pm

Welcome To The Leatherers Lair of N00blieness

The Lair was found in a mountain on the outskirts of TORC by Amrunelen and
Ddraigwen, commonly known as Rune and DD,
and we have opened it up to n00bies to learn their way around TORC (The One
Ring.Com was the old name for this site), and to field any questions they
may have.

In this first thread we have tried to give you links to some of the best
threads to read to learn about TORC, it's people and how to become a good
poster.

But first a little about each of us:

DD: I am originally from Wales but I now live in the United States. I found TORC after The Gathering in Toronto. Since then I have realised that I need no other Tolkien web site, everything I could possibly need is here on TORC; great people, fascinating
debate, news, there really is nowhere quite like it. On TORC you can normally find me in The Bird and Baby (Talk), Languages, Books, Movies and The One Ring Forum, I also lurk pretty much everywhere else.
When not TORCing (which isn't very often), I enjoy reading, writing strange parodies and my music. My other online interest is Narnia.


Rune: I'm originally from Pennsylvania, USA and, well...still am here. I don't even quite remember how I first found TORC. I think it was while randomly Googling for LotR sites after seeing FOTR in the movie theater and then reading LotR a couple of months later. I absolutly loved the books the first time I read them. :) Anyway, after stumbling across TORC, I am happy to say that it is my favorite Tolkien/LotR site on the Web. When I'm not glued to my computer chair, I enjoy reading, writting, drawing, and music, among other things. Here on TORC you'll mainly find me in The Bird and the Baby: Talk, The Prancing Pony, Alliances and Guilds, and Tom's House: The lighter side, but I visit and post in almost every forum on TORC.


Now that you know a little about us, on to the important stuff.

These are the threads that are the most important to read, they may be
long but they will help you to understand how this MB works:


Terms of
Service
: The rules we must all abide by.

Guidelines of
Conduct
: Tips to ensure a pleasent stay.

Comprehensive
Introduction
: From Moderators to titles to bumping. You'll find it all
in here.

Who Are the
Mods?
:A comprehensive list of who does what on TORC.

Frequently Asked

Forum Specific Threads: These are the guidelines for specific forums,
they are normally found at the top of the forum front page.

Problems you have found with TORC can be posted
Here. Check
the first post to see if the problem has already been reproted.

Remember the following: If you are under 18 you are not allowed to
reveal your age, location, real name or anything that could lead people to
discover the real you. It's for your own safety,
we would like to think that no dangerous people post on TORC, but we can't
stop them from reading.

Follow the instructions of the staff (founders, admins and moderators), they
are not out to get you and are working in the best interest of the site.
Listen to what they say and follow instructions, it will make your time here
much nicer.

If you have any questions or queries about anything please feel free to post
them here. Our job is to make your time here more enjoyable by letting you
in on the tricks of TORC.

So, if you like what you have read and would like to join our Lair, post a
little bit about you, why you love Tolkien, how you find TORC and something
completely random just for fun :)

N00bies adopted to date:

Istarriel
Raistlin_Warog

It stinks that you guys have to do this, and that some of the others will have to as well. :(

I'm pretty sure there was only the three. I shall put their names back up.

It does kinda suck that the hacker targetted certain threads, but we shall not be overcome and shall continue with our best foot forward, as soon as we work out which one the best is :)

Ahh yes, but then I think that happens to most Adopters.

For every ten n00bs maybe only one will stay. But then it takes time.

Another n00b at last! :D

Welcome to TORC, Abbot! As DD already said, if you have any questions, feel free to ask away. You can also drop by the Leatherer's Lounge in the Talk forum if you'd like to chat.

I hope you enjoy yourself here at TORC and make yourself at home. :)

The One Rune wrote:Why are you here? As in here at the messageboard? at TORC? That, only you can answer.

Apparently he didn't like his answer, as he hasn't been back since. :P

On the front page of TORC, the left side of the page theres a box with "Search" in it. Just below there it says "news", "Gallery", "reading room" and several others. Just click on "reading room". and it will take you to that area of TORC.

Or go here http://www.theonering.com/reading_room/
