I'd live in an igloo, as long as it was big and had electricity<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0>, but that could pose some problems... is snow like water and conducts electricity? Water conducts electricity right? That's why you're not supposed to substitute your rubber duckie for a plugged in toaster right? Don't look at me like that! My grade five teacher skimped on the electricity unit and we never learned it!

imi- yeah...I know. I'm just a genious when it comes to making yeh laugh, eh? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><BR><BR>*snickers as Cali falls face first into the snow* ha! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> I knew that technique was good for curing colds. <BR><BR>*sigh* The use of Electricity in an igloo would totaly cancel out the effect OF the igloo. Yes, igloos are supposed to be warm, and snow would be a conducter of electricty since snow is frozen (sort of) water. Thus it's all the same critter. So yeah, not only would it melt the igloo, you'd be fried to a crisp (that's also why you're not supposed to swim in a swimming pool during a lightening storm). <BR><BR>Pippy (I can't believe one of the rpers called me "shieldmaiden" GAH!! he knows better...)

Good ol' Sam.<BR><BR>Changing the subject drastically, what are the criteria for starting a new topic on TORC? I've been kind of wondering about this for quite some time now.

Well, it depends on what forum you want to start the thread in. Every forum has posting guidelines so before you start a thread I would suggest you read the guidelines for that forum. If you're still not sure, ask me and I'll help you out <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Evenstar_of_Imladris

Yes... but this place has been devoid of funniness for the last couple of days or so. Perhaps a few shipments of neekerbreekers are in order. But then again, that isn't very original...

*awkwardly clears her throat and shifts from foot to foot feeling, well . . . awkward* I hate being a newby almost as much as I hate being a tourist, but it's bound to happen right? I'm not entirely certain I wish to be adopted, per se, but more like guided. I like poking around feeling the place out on my own. It's the best way I learn.<BR><BR>But I know when I'm over my head and I need help, and I sorta need help. I just have three of questions really. Are there any faux pas I should be aware of before I stumble off and commit one? Also, what do the swords and flags and the like beneath the names mean? And lastly, where do you get the smiley faces? I've gotten pop-ups for them with IMDb, but I didn't really pay attention before I clicked off them until it was too late.<BR><BR>Thanks! :-)

Welcome to TORC Stupid_Orcs <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> It's nice to see such a new member sporting a Premiere Membership - thanks for supporting the site! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Don't worry - adoption isn't for everybody. When I was a n00b I didn't get adopted and I think I turned out okay <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Now, on to your questions!<BR><BR><em>Are there any faux pas I should be aware of before I stumble off and commit one? </em><BR><BR>Well, it's hard to make a list of things not to do, but I do have a couple of things that stick out in my mind. Be sure to read the guidelines of all the forums before posting in them. And also, use the search function before starting a thread of your own to make sure you won't be making duplicate of one that's already out there. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR><em>Also, what do the swords and flags and the like beneath the names mean? </em><BR><BR>They indicate your post count:<BR><BR>• A Sword = 10 posts (you may have up to 4 at one time) <BR>• A Diamond = 50 posts (at the most 1) <BR>• Red Shield = 100 posts (you may have up to 4 at one time) <BR>• Green(Rohan)Shield = 500 posts (at the most 1) <BR>• Black(Gondor)Shield = 1000 posts (you may have up to 4 at one time) <BR>• Blue(Mariner's)Shield = 5000 posts (at the most 1)<BR>• The One Ring = 10,000 posts (Unknown Maximum)<BR><BR><em>And lastly, where do you get the smiley faces? </em><BR><BR>Whenever you reply to a message, under the text box there is a link that says symbols. Click on that link and it will tell you how to make every smiley available here at TORC <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Hope this helps a bit! Enjoy your stay at TORC and happy posting <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Evenstar_of_Imladris
