No I did not reply to your thread. I will have to watch the movie again to be able to comment on it. I do not have the time right now but I think you did a great job of posing the question and I see that you have had at least one person in a conversation about it. :thumbsup:

Where have you been posting hon?? I have not seen you in the talk forum for a very long time. Did something happen to chase you away or are you just busy elsewhere?

I don't want to see anyone not feel welcome somewhere if they truly want to be there.

:hug: I worry about my little Sassy!! ;)

Sorry to hear that you're not very well, Sassy. :( Hope you feel better soon. I know that colds are nasty - I had the same one three times over last winter!

(Vana, is it OK for me to post in this thread even though I'm not an adoption mod?)

How long does it take 3 year olds to learn things? Like their abcs, numbers, colors, etc and how do we help when they are behind on things like that?

Sassy, I think each individual learns at their own rate, and picks up different things at different times. It's probably too hard to tell at such a young age.

Vana, I did post a little in the pre-film days, but I was mainly on a different board back then, partly because my computer tended to have trouble loading TORC, as it was such a huge site. (Computers were huge hulking things with less memory/disk space/RAM or whatever it's called in those days, of course!)

Hi, I noticed most of the adoption threads haven't been posted on since last year, so I thought I'd stop by here as there seemed to be some action! Are adoptions still happening on the board? I think it's a great idea and I don't want to end up stepping on people's toes and or saying the wrong thing out of ignorance!

I've been a Tolkien fan for 18 years since I read the Hobbit as a little girl, and my dream is to become a professional writer. I kind of tucked the dream away for a while to concentrate on my little ones and university, but my love of fantasy and writing keeps knocking on the door and wanting to be let back in, so I thought I would finally join up on here - been lurking a while! This seems such an amazing place to discuss Tolkien's works in detail, without sounding like a right geek! lol And I woudl love to get some feedback/advice on any writing I may finally get around to doing. Plus, I am really tempted to try one of the fantastic role plays, but they all seem huge and very daunting due to thread size and the amount of rules involved!

Adara, Vanaladiel will come around shortly to welcome you properly as the adoptor on this thread.

But I wanted to add, do not let thread size stop you from joining in a thread. Remember that many of us have been around over 10 years now and some threads have gone the distance. :D You are welcomed in any of them, especially in the Talk forum.

On RP joining, just go to the OOC thread and ask to join one you fancy. I would look forward to reading your work.

Take good care and hope to see you out on the boards. :D

Hi, sorry I'm actually Adara, I couldn't remember my password as I hadn't been on the boards for many many years but I've managed to dig out some old school diaries and I found my password written down inside, so I will carry on using this name as I have missed it!

But thank you all for the welcome,I guess it seems weird wanting to be adopted when I obviously have been around for a while, but I haven't been on here for so long, just the odd period of lurking, so it will take a while to get back into the swing of things! Plus this place got a whole lot bigger while I was away and I hardly recognise anyone!

I am so sorry to all of you!!! I have not been getting any of my notifications about this thread having been active at all. I am so sorry to keep you all waiting.

Anriel I will gladly adopt you sweetie. I know that you may not need me now or that you have found someone else to guide you along. But if you still wish it, I am here.

Sassy dear I do hope your back is better now. I am sorry it was hurting. I hate when I hurt and don't know why. :hug:

Niphredil how are you doing these days?

Rwhen and heliona thank you for popping in here while I was absent. Love you too loads and loads. :hug:

Anyone can also find me posting in the Talk forum if you need anything and I do not seem to come back here. I am online most days. I feel so badly that I did not check in here in so long. Forgive me please!!!

Hello again!

Studies keep taking over my life, but with the new Hobbit movies coming out I have a very strong incentive to remain active in these boards to discuss everything and anything related to Tolkien (or not).

Vana - you adopted me back in 2002 (10years!) could you please re-adopt me and help me figure out my way around here again?

Sure I can adopt you again but you were never unadopted either. Sorry but I never got the message that you came here.

If you are still around I would love to help you hon.

Hello!
I just have a couple questions 1) How long should I be just a poster on TORC before starting threads? 2)How many alliances/guilds am I allowed to be in at once?

Greetings and welcome Melwa!!

There is no limit of time that you must be a poster to start threads, but, the big thing is do not start a thread that is already going. So search to be sure that the thread you wish to start is not one already in existence that is just not moving at the moment. If there is one already just add to it and see if you can stir new interest in the subject.

As to how many Guilds and Alliances you can join...... all of them you wish to. Get involved but remember that some you need to apply for entrance such as the Bards Guild, oh you can come in there and post as an observer or to seek membership but others are just come on in and have a seat!!!

Find lots to be involved in and remember to be friendly. Others will be friendly back and help you if you have any questions. You will find me all over the place at times. :D

Mae Govannen and Welcome to TORC!!!
