Elwen and Satch's gingerbread house of n00bly love: teh sequ

Postby satch and elwen » Wed Feb 18, 2004 6:42 pm

Hello and welcome to TORC! As you can see, this is a very large site, and can be somewhat intimidating for the newer posters. That's where we come in. We're here to answer any of your questions and give you our advice.

Okay now for the not so boring stuff. Let us introduce ourselves:

Hey, I’m Satch, and I live in England. Yes I'm scary. I’ve read the Hobbit, FotR and TTT, but I’m waiting to see RotK before I finish the trilogy, but I’ve ‘read’ the Silmarilion, so I’m not entirely clueless, like Elwen would like you to believe.

And I’m Elwen, Satch’s American partner in crime. I’ve read LotR and the Hobbit 3 or so times, and about half of the Unfinished Tales and the Sil. I have a good memory for useless things, so if you want to know any random facts I’m the one to ask. Satch’s memory isn’t so good, I shudder when I think of what it’ll be like when she’s old and grey.

Elwen’s main forums: Movies (LotR), The Bird and the Baby (talk)
Satch’s main forums: Movies (LotR), The Bird and the Baby (talk), Languages.

Forums that we lurk/sometimes post in: Philosophy, Books (Tolkien), Books (Other), Events, A Tolkien Virgin, Movies (Fandom), Movies (Other), Tom’s House, Languages, Alliances and Guilds, Writing, and of course The One Ring and Premiere Membership Support.

Italic forums Elwen lurks in, Bold are forums we both lurk in, and normal is Satch.

And if you need to get in contact with us:

E-mail/MSN: Schpeckle@hotmail.com and Elwenoni@hotmail.com
AIM: Satchmoochen and Elwenoni

If you can’t figure out who is who then tough luck!

---

I'll continue to edit this as our little family grows, if I can be bothered to sign out and into this account:

Okay it’s time for the long post. We have basic rules and things you need to know here, but if you don’t bother reading it we understand. I suggest reading the first section though (we kindly separated it by lines for you because it was so long).

You will soon realize that TORC isn’t as perfect as it looks. The site works hard to keep TORC a good and clean place, and that requires the help of each and every poster. Working behind the scenes are the two admin, Ted and Jon. We also have moderators, and you can find a list and their emails here. Their job is to patrol the boards and make sure everybody is following the Terms of Service, or TOS. There is always a link on the upper right hand corner of every page on TORC. This TOS is not like one that you would find when signing up for an online game site or an email address, this one is short and to the point, and it is HIGHLY recommended that you read it, in fact SO highly recommended that we are going to summarize it here for you. Think of them as the rules of the boards:


    No spamming. Spamming is when you post pointless things that waste time and space. Starting a thread saying ‘I’m bored’ is a good example, or *bump*ing a thread. Spamming is also advertising for other websites. You can post a link to a website that you like, but we don’t want to see obvious advertisement. Another form of spam is replying to your own post, which is generally frowned upon here. If you make a mistake in a post or you want to add something you can just push the ‘edit’ button at the bottom of your post and change it.


    No Flaming (or trolling, which is only added because Satch is a *$^@&#). That would be personal attacks. It’s good to get in debates with people, but you should be debating the topic, not calling the person a two headed ugly Satch or something.


    No profanity or sexual innuendo. This is a family friendly site, so theoretically people of all ages should be able to enjoy posting here. Profanity is the easiest way to get yourself in a lot of trouble with the admin and mods. Blocking out words with *’s are also not allowed. The general rule for profanity is if you can recognize what the word is, it shouldn’t be there. The easiest way to be safe is just not to swear. Sexual innuendo you will see used sometimes, and that isn’t allowed either, mostly for the younger posters on our board, even though we know that’s almost all that high school students talk about.


    No Netspeak. we dun wanna c postz lik diz because itz rlly hard 2 read nad sum people wud say itz an insult 2 tolkien and itz rlly annoyin and specially hard 2 read 4 people hoo dun speak english az a 1st language. (By the way you may see some people posting with a bit of netspeak (mostly just a !!111 at the end of a sentence though), generally in movies and by older posters. It’s used as a joke, and can be quite funny).


    If you’re under 18, for your own safety you are not supposed to supply your town name, age, or name.



If you use any of these things above you can (and probably) will be sent an email by a moderator, which we call a warning, and your post will be edited. Take the warnings seriously, because it doesn’t take a lot of them to be banned, and we don’t want you guys to be kicked off the site. Obviously I haven’t covered everything in the TOS, yet my summary is probably still longer.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before you start posting, I’d recommend just lurking through some forums for a start to see what they’re like and where you’d like to post. If you want to take a look at the forums we have, click here.

Movies-Fandom and Tom’s House are more light hearted forums with word games and what we call sw00ning (which would be something like “Oh Elwen I love you! *sw000000000n*” )

Alliances and Guilds is home to various “clubs” which are based around or dedicated to Tolkien. Take a look at the thread on the top of the main page to see if there are any guilds you may like to join.

The Role Playing forums, The Pony (Tolkien’s Middle Earth) and The Green Dragon Inn (Tolkien influenced) are generally pretty serious places and do not take kindly to spam or needless posts if you’re not part of the RP, so check out the welcome threads in there if you’d like to join one of them. The Welcome forum has The Lucky Fortune Inn which is where anyone can go and role play if they don’t feel confident joining a serious RP yet.

Books Tolkien and Books Other are for discussions of books, surprise surprise.

Languages is where you can go if you want to learn one of Tolkien’s languages or just ask something about a language. Please PLEASE do not start any irrelevant threads in there because I will take it to heart. …I’m not kidding though.

And last but not least of this brief *ahem* summary of the forums on TORC, is Movies - LotR which is a delightfully sarcastic forum dedicated to the discussion of the Movies (technically) but if you go in there posting away without seriously taking a look around, they will eat you. You have been warned. My advice is to lurk in there for at LEAST a week before actually posting, but 2-3 weeks is advisable.

Anyways, the rest of the forums kinda summarise themselves, so have a great time looking around. If you want to post something look to see if there’s a thread which you could post in which is relevant, if you can see anything then use the search function to make sure you’re not about to post a duplicate or already well talked about thread.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you want to know who the moderators of the board are, click here.

Some things people often want to know when they first join TORC (that stands for theonering.com which is the old link to the site, although it still works) is how to do smileys:

:D = : D
:) = : )
:( = : (
:? = : ?
8) = 8 )
:x = : x
:P = : P
:oops: = : oops:
:roll: = : roll:
;) = : wink: ; )
:Q = : Q
=:) = = : )
>-O = > - O
:angry: = : angry:
:nono: = : nono:
:rofl: = : rofl:
:| = : |
:o = : o
:shock: = : shock:
:lol: = : lol:
:cry: = : cry:
:evil: = : evil:
:twisted: = : twisted:
:!: = : !:
:?: = : ?:
:idea: = : idea:
:arrow: = : arrow:


People also ask what the titles under your user name are, and they are as follows:

Petitioner to the Council – 0 posts
Citizen of Imladris - 20 posts
Shield Bearer – 100 posts
Rider of the Mark - 500 posts
Ranger of the North - 1,000 posts
Mariner - 5,000 posts
Ringbearer - 10,000 posts
(custom titles can be made if you buy Premiere Memebership)

Aaaaaanyways, after this insanely long ramble about various parts of TORC I’d like to first thank Blackwood for the couple of things I *cough* borrowed from one of his lengthy threads, and erm… welcome to TORC. :D

First adopter to post here! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> Anyway Elwen, why did they do that, that is the rule? I guess the other will be deleted eventually or what?, hmmm interesting.<BR><BR>By the way I found out that is you do submit an image that it must be LOTR related. I got my images back today denied so that answers that question. Thought I would share that.<BR><BR>elrin- I don't get to squimish over blood and stuff and I LOVE Interview with a Vampire...have you seen Queen of the Dammed?<BR><BR>Lovely cyber parents- how do I unsubscribe to a thread?

See the white paper with the red arrow, up at the top of the posts? Next to the glasses (profile) icon. Click it. You can figure the rest out, it's pretty easy <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>It's not exactly a rule, but the adopters decided it would be easier for the newer posters to feel more welcomed if the threads were only a few hundred posts, as opposed to a thousand. They did the same thing in fandom, and all the threads are closed at 300. That's supposed to help prevent multiple threads popping up, because somebody is too lazy to read through a 1000 post thread for Legolas. <BR><BR>But I like this idea, because then we can put fancy new titles, like 'teh sequel' and stuff <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><BR><BR>(Don't mind the double post...Elwen's computer messed up! I'm still trying to get it deleted though...what does it look like, having an adopter double post on the first post??? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0>)

No, that would be me.<BR><BR>The only horror movie I will watch is the Faculty, and the first time I watched that I skipped the parts that looked scary and had the volume down so low I could barely hear it, watching it on my mother's bed in broad daylight. I can safely watch the whole movie now, after about 7 or so viewings.<BR><BR>Why did I even bother? Because Elijah Wood is in it <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0>

At least you didn't watch Flipper because of Elijah Wood. A friend dragged me into that one but it's alright since my memory has blanked it. I will never cease to be amazed at the levels at which we can have no lives and still not die. <BR>Satch~ You do know this is all in good humour, right?

On the bright side, you're not working for teh jerkful one anymore, so you should be happy!<BR><BR>I'm not sure what kind of computer you have, but if you right click the picture and click properties, the size of the picture should appear.

I think Jon and Ted are testing some things out...TORC was down a little while yesterday afternoon, and the look of the forums have changed a bit (with the red and the grey threads). <BR><BR>Motorwife, you want to help me advertise the thread? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-devil.gif"border=0>

Ack, the boxes are growing! Or am I shrinking? Either way it's trouble. <BR><BR>I'm just posting so you can see that I now shamelessly promote this adoption thread.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> <BR>Ta Da!!!

Of course I'll help you ! Just tell me how to put the link in my sig and I'll start spamming the board ! <BR><BR>Try Splash Mountain in the rain. Very interesting. But lots of the rides are indoors so you don't get all that wet. The great part is that the rain scares all the people away so there are no waits for anything. You just walk right on as many times as you want. AND we got into the Blue Bayou restaurant without reservations which is unheard of.

Hello everyone. I just wanted to si hello everybody. I feel very strange. I have not been on TORC for like 4 days or something. I got a new job! Yeah, and you can't email anyone outside the company and you don't have any acsess to the internet... you have to have a password, you get the idea. Anyway I have 2 secs as I sit at my friends house so hello to all. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>
