Thread: Hi Everyone :D
One spring morn to the Shire she came,
A fair elvish lass, a warm-hearted dame,
Then with guide she left and travelled afar,
Through many lands under sun and star,
And all who met her firmly agree,
Never such a fair maid did ever they see,
And so since her beauty made all stop and stare,
She became known as Ashwyn Laurelwin the fair.
Wow that's not too bad......I actually made another one that's slightly better then this but I can't remember where it is so this is just the rough copy :P Well sorry for boring you with long introductions! I love LOTR and am sooooooooo glad I found this site
• There are different types of forum for different subjects. The one you posted on is for greeting newcomers, as you found out, but there are also ones for discussing the books/movies, the website in general, polls, Tolkien-related trivia, games, posting your own stories and poems (as you seem to be good at), and many other things that I can't think of at the moment. You can even create your own character and journey through Middle-Earth with other members in a Role-Playing Game (RPG). Drop in at the Khazad-Dumish Inn, or go on a more dangerous adventure in A Dark Threat from the North or Eruheran's Quest, the three active RPGs at the moment.
•Editing your account: You can change different features of your PT account through 'My Account' (top left on menu bar). You can upload an avatar (picture when you post, must be 70 by 70 pixels and must be in .gif format), change your personal info, view updates on PT, and send Private Messages (PMs) to other members if you want to alert them about something. However, it does cost mithril (20 pieces of which you get when you login each day). It depends where this member lives in PT (I, for example, live in Osgiliath, and you in Lothlorien, so it'll cost something along the lines of 5 pieces to send). It costs 400 mithril to change your location.
•Under some members' avatars you may see a little black box with 'Council Member' written on it in white letters. They are a part of the Council for being old and distinguished PT members (hope I didn't just offend anyone - hee hee) and have administrative powers, meaning they can edit other people's posts if they go against website rules (we are a Family Friendly website, so no swearing or profanity please).
Phew! Hope I've covered all the important stuff. To finish, I'll quote Grondmaster (a.k.a Grondy, Council Member, something in the region of 25'000 posts under his belt, off sick at the moment) and say: Share and Enjoy!
PS: Drop by at the Khazad Dumish Inn sometimes. Most of us are hanging there at the moment. We have only one requirement. All new customers must sing a song or a poem
Gives Ashwyn a Tenner
Thanks again everyone!!!
EDIT: I like your avatar, Ashwyn!
Edit: Btw I like yours too Fornac
Edit:Edit: I changed it to a blue eye now since Ashwyn has blue eyes. What do you think?
Your first avatar was pretty cool, but I think this blue one suits you better. It's more elf-like in my opinion. A bit mysterious, calm and very beautiful.
I see the weather is not quite sunny yet at the moment in Lórien... (Start with some idle chit-chat about the weather )
.Anyway, I hope you stay in our Planet for a lengthy time and enjoy each minute.
I like you avatar too, but it reminds me of an old one back in the beginning of the dark days of Grep . I suppose only Ama would remember and other long-time members. Didn't it used to be Rho's?
Welcome once again Ashwyn .
Hope you'll enjoy your stay here
It can be hard to find an image which is 70x70, but we in the council can help to resize just about any image to avatar size. Just e-mail the picture to firstname.lastname@example.org and one of us will help you out.
