I have a question:<BR>when I subscribe to a thread I get emails EVERY time it's updates, even if I haven't visited the board again, is there any way I can make it so that it only sends me one email, until I visit the board again?

When you reply to post there's an unsubscribe option, I believe. I'm not positive because it's been a long time since I've subscribed to a thread <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Evenstar_of_Imladris

<b>Quick Announcement</b><BR><BR>The adopters have been discussing the effect of large post counts in adoption threads on newbies and their decisions to be adopted or not be adopted. A number of us feel that if we keep the threads small it won't be as intimidating to newbies. It was left up to the adopters to decide what post count they were comfortable with locking their threads and starting new ones at or if they just want to let it go to 2,000 and be locked at the traditional "locking point" <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <BR><BR>I have decided that the adoption thread here will be locked and restarted every 500 posts and the chat thread will be locked and restarted every 1,000 posts. <BR><BR>Just a heads up so you all don't get lost when threads get locked and restarted <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Evenstar_of_Imladris

Can I change my screen name? It really confuzzles me when peep talk about Eowyn all the time and I'm like, "huh? oh, you're not talking about me. Ok."<BR>How would I go about doing this? Emailing one of the mods?

Eowyn- very rarely does anybody get their screen name changed, but it has been done a few times. The only way to do this is to e-mail Jon or Ted (site administrators) and ask them very, very nicely- and even then you might not get your wish granted.<BR><BR>cali- nice <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>The WCA's are the White Council Awards and they are a site wide awards type thing. They give awards to posters and threads throughout the entire site. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Evenstar_of_Imladris

Hey family! I just have to say, if a certain Mumakil14 posts on here, he's my RL brother. So be nice to him. (Just kidding.
