Well first do you want to be an addoptee? If you do then ask dear father stormy if you may join our lovely family. He will then most likely accept you. Then head over to the Chat thread wich is in Bird and the Baby.<BR><BR>~Gwen

Hi, Tarot!<BR><BR>As a rank newcomber myself, I am, perhaps, less qualified to welcome you into the family than many others here. That having been said, I'm going to do it anyway.<BR><BR>**** WELCOME TAROT! *******<BR><BR>Our daddy, Stormy, should be by soon to welcome you officially. Until then, and after then as a matter of fact, please join us at <a href='http://www.tolkienonline.com/thewhitecouncil/messageview.cfm?start=980&catid=24&threadid=77969' target=_blank>Stormy's Convo Thread</a> for discussions, crazy trampoline stories by Ring, and occasional milk and cookies. Hope to see you there! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>

Hi everyone,

I was hoping I could be adopted. I noticed that GandalfStormcrow is very popular considering all the links that I have seen to his (your?) adoption and convo threads. This seems like a very friendly family. I have double fudge brownies to suck up with. Although it does not look like Stormy (may I call you that?) has turned anyone down.

I am pretty new to this messageboard. Actually, I am new to messageboards in general. I have been lurking on this site for a couple of months now, and trying to post when I have something new and fresh to say. I was just getting the hang of this site, when, lo and behold, everything is changed. I think I may need help with some things.

I have to go run errands now, but I will be back later, and I will check out the chat thread when I get a chance.

Help yourself to brownies, they are with or without nuts. Oh, and I put some milk in the fridge to wash the chocolatey goodness down. :D

Evenstararwn2!! Welcome welcome! You are always welcome here, especially when you bring food! :) I am Boxy, a humble yet trying to be helpful adoptee of Stormy. He should be by, eventually, so don't you worry. :) And he has never turned turned anyone down. That I recall at any rate. %( :) I can help you if you need anything, as well as any of the other adoptees.:) Welcome to the family!

Anth, :P I see your bulldog! Just wait, I am going on a search now to find something so terrifying, so appalling and frightening, that your bulldog will whimper. Oh, yes. He will. :P :D

Well, I don't visit the Adoption forum for almost a month and look what happens? Adoptees up the ying-yang :D ! Welcom guys, it's wonderful to have you all here!

I've only seen a couple of you in the convo threads, though, Aaron and Suenote are the two I remember although a couple of you may have whizzed past and I didn't see you.

So, welcome...

Aaron!
Suenote!
Evenstararwn!
*KittyPower*!
Fantasy_Fanatic!
Devils_Margarita! (Love the SN, by the way :P )

And LadyA who I already said hi to but I'll say hi to once more....because.

Good to see everyone, I will try and make a point of visiting here more often so I don't miss out on six new adoptees.

evenstararwn2,

You already know the way to our hearts! This is a friendly group, but it gets to be a VERY friendly group when you bring goodies. And double chocolate brownies, with milk, no less! :D

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm



You can be MY new best friend. :)


See you over in the chat thread!


P.S. Boxy.... my bulldog is *waiting*.... :wink:

Wow, Hi everyone, and thanks for welcoming me so warmly! :D

*Not sure where I should throw my bags. I'd ask for the attic, but it seems like Jaspur has quite the commune going up there. Ah, I see a nice cozy room right off the kitchen, with a lovely view of the grounds. If there are no arguments, I think I'll take this room. (Then I can make brownies and treats more often.)*

Ok, now that I'm settled, I have my first question. I used to be able to place threads into "My Favorites," and that was a convenient way to keep track of them, without wading through the entire forum. Now that the site has changed, all of my threads have moved so the links are kind of useless. I do not see "Add to My Favorites" anywhere, so how do I add to "My Favorites"?

I noticed that in the upper right hand corner of the screen, it gives the option of watching this thread, or stop watching this thread. I am now "watching" certain threads, but I cannot find a way to look at just the threads that I am watching, and I don't see anything different with the threads I am watching when I go into forums.

Sorry I am not very concise with my question. :oops: I hope I explained it clear enough.

*Oh, it seems to be dinnertime. How about I whip up some supper. Oh, I make a killer home made pizza. It'll be ready in a jiffy.*

It sure is convenient that I'm right next to the kitchen. :D

Evenstar, I wish I could answer your questions....but I'm still a new-TORC n00bie too, at least I feel like one. Maybe you could check out a couple of the threads over in talk that discuss the new version of TORC, and they could answer your question there. Perhaps And So We Enter the New Age of TORC. Good luck with that, report back when you're done :P !

I also posted to say that I forgot to add Tarot's name to my list of n00bies here....so welcome Tarot, and I'm glad you're finding your way around![/b][/url][/list]

Hi new family members!

I'm your sister Farawen, who doesn't show up at home often enough, is always late for family parties, and mostly hangs around in Movies instead of helping in the house. :roll:

Tarot, evenstararwn2, welcome to the family. :)

evenstar and suenote, you had questions regarding the new TORC - well, my advice is, as long as not everything is up and running (the admins and mods are still working rather heavily on the stuff, for example the search function, member profiles, and the sig box thing) be patient and see what happens, maybe check the Tolkien Online - The One Ring forum here as there are several threads on bugs, probs and planned improvements etc. Not everything is ready and up and running yet, but it's all going to be grand later on. :) I'm extremely excited about the new search function, by the way.

evenstar, sorry but I can't give you any specific info on My Favorites, have never used it.

Take care all! :)

Hey alll!

The extra l is for love! :)

I see we have a lot of newcomers.

Welcome!

I'm the Weird Aunt around here. I sometimes try and fill in when Stormy isn't available. Although I'm not around all the time either.

As Farawen said

*pats her on the head with pride*

with the new board a lot of things arn't figured out yet. Favorites is one of them.

If you have any other questions feel free to post them. One of the gang or myself should be able to answer them.

Welcome again!

*Sets out a plate of Snickerdoodles*

Cookie?

Mmmmmm.....cookies :D . Gwen, the icon you put op there is supposed to be laughing. If you put your mouse directly over it, it should come up with a litte box that says "laughing". Although that could just be with MSN Explorer on Windows XP. Anyway, if you bend your head to the right and look at it from the side, he's like a little balloon. Except he's laughing.

Hi Farawen and Weird Auntie Squiddy :D . I haven't seen you two around here for forever, it's great to have you. And don't be scared of Farawen, just be sure to keep a bottle of Lysol on hand at all times to wash away those m00bie germs :P .

Snickerdoodles! Oh, my! *Rushes to Aunt Squiddy's side, dives for the cookies, bummer! they're all gone again! Darn that elsha and gwen....* :)

Might need a big bottle of Lysol for Farawen, I hear she hangs out in Manwe from time to time (just kidding!)

Welcome to all the new adoptees... it's kind of a frustrating time to join, since the board have so recently changed, but it can be a good thing... now we're not the only ones who don't know what's going on... we won't stand out nearly as much! :)

Yes, Boxy, I see your Darth Vader... better bring that bulldog back! :D

Interesting to find out what kind of reputation I seem to have around here. Most interesting. Also, I keep reading Lysol. Was it something I said? Or did? :D :wink:

Hi, I'm Parm's son, Arahn. I'm here to enjoy TORC along with my Dad.
He said I should come here soon, and maybe join the Mithril Knights.
I think he said he sorta promised somebody that. So if I hurt anyone
else's promised feelings, talk to my Dad.

As we say in Japan, Yoroshiku onegaishimasu -- please take good care
of me.
