Hey Lit!<BR><BR>*E* (*E*V*E*N*S*T*A*R*) is the adopter and she's not here at the moment. Not sure why but she said she'd be back soon. However, I'm sure she'll adopt you. In the meantime, we can answer any question you have!

I am, for some reason, asking to be adopted, mainly on the premise that I have been away for so long, and things have changed drastically in my absence.<BR><BR>I remember certain archives that disappeared, and I remember entire Forums that I can't locate anymore.<BR><BR>Is there a reason why the forums feel cold and distant? I vaguely remember a more 'homey' feeling.<BR><BR>Gee, don't feelings sap the stuffing out of you? They also anger my keyboard...

I feel so...old! That's weird... I usually only feel this way when all the 7th graders assume I'm one of them. I get no respect...<BR><BR>I vaguely remember there used to be something on this site about cooking. Don't ask me why, but I was interested in that, and then *POOF!* not here.<BR><BR>Also, what are the new rules for RPGs? I haven't done one in FOREVER, and it's almost an oddity, but is it the same protocal? I mean, it used to be that 'anything went besides vulgarity or extreme violence, etc.etc.etc...'<BR><BR>I also note there is no longer a counter of who's on and who's offline, and there's no listing of the current users. I liked that function. Where did it go? It's also harder to find out people's IM and such, and why is there no MSN messenger option?<BR><BR>Any more questions and I may make your heads explode. I'm going to go feel old in the Writing forum....

Echo_Starlite - Hi!<BR><BR>As far as I know there is still a count of who's online and offline... at least there was one last week when I looked. When you enter the Message Boards at the top of the list of boards it says "# users logged on" and if you click on the number you get a list.

HUZZAH! I found it!

Okay, one more thing (aren't I good for these??):<BR>I'm having a heck of a time getting into an RPG, seeing as everybody's so far in theirs, and have no idea what's going on in most of them.<BR><BR>Is there any way to start my own without getting bombarded? Actually, I'd rather know if anybody ELSE is starting one, seeing as I haven't done an RPG in so long, or at least not a formal one.<BR><BR>EEP! ^_^ Help!

I'm fine with Arwen (oh how great to be first!)<BR><BR>Echo - I'd answer your question except I basically have the same problem. It's really annoying because it seems I can never find one that's starting... and it's hard to barg in onto one that's half way through!

I have a kind of serious question. I have read all the guidelines and stuff to make sure I don't do something wrong, especially the search function. Since I just joined recently I don't want to start a thread that has been done before. In this case I was curious about the subject of gay hobbits (I read the books) and searched for "gay hobbits" for all categories and found nothing related in the first 60 threads listed. When I posted my question I got slammed! Unknown to me there have been a lot of such threads! Where were they in my search? Do I have to search for all possible words? How many of the serch results should I read? Please enlighten me!!!!!!<BR><BR>I went and searched "homosexuality" afterwards and it only came up with 3 responses, 2 about the bible and 1 about the mind. Where was I supposed to find these threads?
