Hello to all people of Middle-Earth. I'm new but I just wanted to say hello to everyone and give my greetings. I hope to meet some people who love Lord of the Rings as mush as I do (and I'm sure most of you do).
From: Elana Mirkad Elf Smilie
Hi there! Some one will probably come along soon and give you *good* advice about getting the best out of Planet Tolkien.

My advice (hahahaha) is to wander through the Inns first and have a look at the threads. Please, please, please post something somewhere.
Hello and welcome Elanamirkad. I hope you enjoy it here as much as I do. Big Smile Smilie

Hi Tulkas,
Welcome to PT. Just go to Help and FAQ's under My Account and look up Avatar. Instructions are there.
Hello Tulkas! Welcome to P-T! Big Smile Smilie Birthday Smile Smilie Pary Smilie Waving Hello Smilie

The pictures are usually refered to as avatars. You can read some helpful how-to's here:

How do I get an avatar.

Help and FAQ's

Basically:
1.Find a picture, 70x70 pixels and no larger than 8kB.
2.Make it into a .gif file. (Unless it's already a gif)
If you have a picture you want to use, but do not know how to do the above, just mail it to AmariŽ or Rednell, and they will help.
3.Go to "My Account", "Edit your profile". Find the button that says "browse"(probably) and find the picture you want on your computer. Click "upload" and you are done! Smile Smilie

Oh! Red was faster than me! Smile Smilie The links don't work like they should. Don't know why...
Welcome Tulkas to PT. It's been nice talking with you in chat. I hope to see you around! =))
Thank you all for your help Thumbs Up Smilie

Hi Tulkas. Welcome to Planet Tolkien.

If you were able to copy one of ours and make it work, but one of the ones you made yourself didn't, it sounds like something is wrong with the one you made. Are you sure it is a 70x70 gif.file? Is it saved somewhere the browser can access it from?

The chatroom was fine yesterday, but I haven't tried today. What browser are you using? I cannot access the chatroom using Mozilla, but I can with IE. You need to have Java enabled. If you are using a school or work PC they might have Java unactivated.
I think you are rite it is the java how do i activate it.
I have a avatar witch i borrowed (stole) and its working and the one i made is 70x70 and it is under 8kb
What is the mithril for
The Mithril is for sending private messages. It takes a certain amount of mithril to send a PM to a member Smile Smilie.
If you are using Internet Explorer, go to "Tools", "Internet alternatives/options" or something similar (bottom button). Then click "advanced" and check the box for enable java.

(As my windows is speaking norwegian, not too badly either, I must say, the actual labels might differ a bit.)

I don't imagine Elfstone will mind you borrowing his avatar for a short while, to test your system, but I'd imagine he will want it back before too long. Personal avatars tend to portray our feelings. When I noticed someone had borrowed mine a short time ago, it felt rather strange seeing it on posts that I hadn't written.

i tried this and it still didnt work when i use to click on CHAT a box would appear and say do u exept this but now it doesnt appear
Hm! I'm getting the box.. You have pop-up stopper activated? It shouldn't kill it, but..

Avatar: Your image is .gif? Lower case? Not Gif or GIF. Not knowing the program code here is a few wild guesses: Try to make a DOS-compatible file name. (only 8 characters, only letters and numbers.)
Save your pic in C:, not My documents or similar.

(There are no logical reason to think it helps, apart from... It's Microsoft. And it has helped before..)
If you still have problems creating your avatar, try speaking very nicely to Amarie. She's very kindly helped out a number of people create theirs. It could be a PC problem. Mine is currently refusing to open any Jpegs.
The computer of a friend of mine also doesn't like jpegs! Try opening them with Internet Explorer. (right click, open with..)
YAY i fixed my pic and i also have my chat working Big Smile Smilie Big Laugh Smilie Tongue Smilie Birthday Smile Smilie Pary Smilie Thumbs Up Smilie Jumping Flame Smilie I Wiggle Smilie

could somebody help me please
also could somebody show me how to get smileys. Smile Smilie Smile Smilie Smile Smilie
never mind i figured it out
Hi Adweena. Welcome to Planet Tolkien.

There are no default pictures for avatars. You must create your own. Basically scan a picture you like, or find one off the net. You must then convert it to a 70x70 Gif. file (if you have problems doing this part, Rednell or Amarie may help you if you ask them nicely. You then follow the instructions on how to upload the image.

Hope that helps.
i see some of you have said you have got your chat working how do you do it cos all i get is across in the corner of the screen
a very warm welcome to you too!visit me in edoras and i'll hook you up with eowyn!
