I am intending to start the huge uphill struggle of bringing all of your old journal entries up to date for the new system and then crossing them over.

... Just so you know I'm working on it and if all things go well it should be sorted come Sunday.
Taz, you work so hard for all of us!! Thank you for giving us all these cool things to do! I love it. And just to follow the crowd I will put a bunch of smilies!

As Quenya and Sindarin are Tolkien related, they are acceptable; however, we will rely on the honor system for those who use those languages and that anyone who abuses the privilege will be reported to the Council by their peers via PM or email.
I've posted Tommie's problem under Taz's To-Do List under Website General Discussion.
Gotcha. Cool Smilie It's cool. Thought you might say that. Tongue Smilie

Does the rule apply to Elvish too? Question Smilie
Thanks for your efforts on making an excellent and HUGE site about Tolkien, and thanks for the new tolkienist journal... Animated Wink Smilie
Funny little thing I've noticed: on the page where all the journals are listed, you can see the correct date on which it has been writen. But when you open a journal, it says: "written on" and there you always see today's date. Orc Going Huh Smilie

Oh well, never mind. *bye for now*
Can I make a journal in another language (say, Dutch) Question Smilie

It's just that's it's the text of a song, and it's in a sort of dialect which is rather hard to translate. Smile Smilie Just a question. It's all right if I can't. Big Smile Smilie
We asked members to use only English on the forum Tommie, because we cannot moderate something we cannot understand. Because the journals are being endorsed by us as family material, the rules concerning the journals are the same as for the forum.

The language journals are to be written in isn't something the Council has discussed, but bearing in mind what I have just said, it's likely should the topic be raised, the answer would be English only please.

I'll check out what the others think, and get back to you on this one.

It's all right really. I though that would be the answer. No problem. I don't think there are that many Dutch speakers here, anyway. Tongue Smilie
I've had a word with a few of the others, and whatever rules we have on the forum apply to the journals too.

Hello, how does this Journal thing work? I am new here. Do I get something like a Journal with my name on it to post?

Hi Arwen. Welcome to Planet Tolkien. To make a journal entry:

1. Click on Account

2. Under the heading Your Account, click on the option "Journal Entries"

3. Click the option to "Write Journal Entry"

4. Enter the fields for "Title" and whatever subject you are writing about in the text box

5. Click "Publish journal entry"


Your journal entry will then be displayed for others to read in the list along the right-hand menu bar under Journals

Hope that helps.
