     Thanks for commenting on my avie [In reply to]  

When I saw the new Pretty! with his armour, glossy hair and intense look *sigh* I knew I just had to have it as my new avatar Heart Thanks for noticing!

Yes I guess you're right about Legolas' fighting style. I rewatched the clip where he fights Bolg and other than him unsheathing his sword in a Daddy-like aweseome manner, he seems to fight very differently with his two-handed grip.


In Reply To
To me, his sword-fighting form just doesn't have that razzle-dazzle of Heartdaddy Tongue

LOL razzle-dazzle Cool

Anyway, I hope/think we'll see more double-knife and reverse-grip knifework from Legolas in BotFA.




Let's hope, that would be another thing to look forward to! Though I would still be in my fangirl mode if he pulls something like this: http://img.gawkerassets.com/...rfvipng/original.png

Ah maybe the whole Galadriel/Gandalf scene won't be as bad as you might think right now. Just wait and give it a honest chance in december Tongue

     Maybe it's just a small car? [In reply to]  

That's insane. No one that tall can fit in such a tiny car Shocked

And re your question about where Thranduil keeps his second sword when not in battle. I've been wondering that same thing. I think he wears the one at home (as we see in DOS) and probably dusts off the other one when going to batlle. Or when he steps outside his Halls to explore the more dangerous parts of Mirkwood. When not in use, he might keep his second sword by his nightstand? Smile

     About the Elk named Moose [In reply to]  


In Reply To
Question though: If the Elk and Legolas were in the same quicksand, who would Thranduil save? aka would you vote for FLAST or TEAM (Thranduil Elvenking and Moose)?CrazyTongue

Ahh trick question. Of course Thrandy would save his beloved Moose. Leggy can take care of himself I'm sureAngelic So yeey team TEAM! Ha that does sound a bit strange.



Quote

CLICK: One person online actually asked what the name of the elk you’re riding was.

LP: Actually there’s an actor playing the Elk you should ask. It’s a horse named Moose. Playing the elk.

In Reply To
Always loved the thought of a horse named Moose playing the War-Elk.Heart


Thanks for the quote. I had read it a while ago but I'd stored that info somewhere in a deep and sleepy corner of my mind and forgot all about it. It's some weird name to give your horse but obviously it suits him just fine.

     The pain of [In reply to]  

I might need to read your post a little more carefully. I think I might be one of the posters who don't always follow the guidelines precisely (unintentionally of course, but I dó normally check if my img size is below 500 w/h). It's just that I always seem to have a bit of a discussion with the buttons and it keeps on messing up my text when I use the quote/reply button and it sure as hell doesn't work when I want to post an image/link the conventional way. Making clicky's is a bit of a challenge as well and after 3 times I usually give up. But that's after I have put up a massive temper tantrum whishing all the clicky's I'm about to make a very slow and painful death. Of course... none of these problems are any of my fault Angelic Nooooo way, of course not. I love the internet and the internet loves me so it must be the evil board buttons in compliance with my devilish laptop. But perhaps I'll have more luck with it when I actually start reading the board's manual (it's just sad the textbox incl all the buttons isn't very user friendly at times).

     Welcome mariel! [In reply to]  

It's so good of you to have stepped into the light Cool And what a fine choice to grace the TA thread with your very first post!

Thanks so much for the art, I haven't seen some of them before Heart
The links aren't clicky's, but as you can read in the post righ above this one, I'm probably not the best person to explain how to make workable clicky's Mad Angelic Whenever I typ in an url into the textbox though, it automatically changes into a clicky so that's one thing I don't have to hassle with.

Luckily you're not the only one with posting difficulties. There are some very dedicated and smart ppl around the TA thread that I'm sure will help you if you have any questions. Of course you can ask me as well but seeing as I find myself in the midst of a clicky-war Mad, I might not be the most suitable person to actually help you understand. But Lurker just posted a great topic called: IMPORTANT README for TA posters: Information on posting, and adding images. I think that might be good reading for the both of us.

Btw I usually use [ i m g ]urlgoeshere[ / i m g ] but without the space to post a image. But *apparently* there is an easier way that might have something to do with clicking the image-button (second to your right) on top of this textbox.

And we looooooves the artwork precioussssss. Don't hesitate to post more of the goodness Smile

Not sure if I'm getting it correct, but seems like you're in basic editor mode? Well, if it's not by choice...
Do you see a "Switch to Advanced Editor" button below the text input box?If you click that, you should see a bunch of icons at the top of the box like in Word, including icons for making URLs and adding images at the right end of the icon parade. Life might be easier using the Advanced Editor. Also you should be able to default your editor choice in your Profile. Check out the TORn FAQ for more instructions.

With Elrond, from a distance it does look like he's the jerk who came between them, lolTongue, but if you zoom in on him, you can see that he's actually looking off to the left, not at Galadriel and Gandalf. I notice that the smoke/dust and leaves seem to be blowing from that direction too, so maybe something wicked this way comes?Wink

*scrunches eyes and studies Elrond* you're right! Interesting.

i do hope that G&G pose is just for the tapestry. Otherwise it's gonna be just meh, to me, when it happens and I don't want meh in BotFAUnsure

     Don't understand... [In reply to]  

... how can any images in these threads be considered clutter?Tongue

Seriously, I really don't get how quotes which include images is clutter unless quoting text itself is considered clutter. Because the QUOTE and REPLY features are doing their job, to me. I can clearly tell where a quote start and end, and where the poster's thoughts goes. Granted, it could be a problem if we start getting nested (or layering as you put it) quotes/reply to, but that problem with nested quotes you seem to encounter isn't that prevalent on these threads imo.

My experience when I went through the first threads was painful as I was in Flat Mode and I had trouble understanding posts which alluded to images only. It was troublesome to go and find the preceding post the post I'm reading was replying to, and then go back to the post I was reading. All that back and forth was tiring. When I finally figured out Threaded Mode, the lack of images which posts alluded to was still a problem to me, though Threading made it so much easier to follow a conversation.

Anyway, "clutter" seems so subjective. Because how can a conversation be tough to follow unless one was just cutting in mid-convo and didn't want to actually go and see what the preceding bits were? And I don't get why posters have to give special consideration to STV readers, flat-moders or not - you can lead a cow/camel to water and all that. There's plenty of "clutter" since thread one (which isn't just a TA phenomenon, imo), and silent thread visitors who didn't participate then aren't suddenly going to start now just cos, I don't think. *looks to STV gallery* Right? *silence* See?TongueSmile


ETA: I'm rusty and shaky on servers/hosting and stuff but I'd think images that's been uploaded to TORn aren't the frown-causing concern to MODs when being quoted. *shrug*

Can we really break through the Girdle of ModlianTongue I remember reading the lockpost on #1 which said 300 is the limit, or some such higher than 200 number. Then when 2 got locked I was all agog, cos we were nowhere near that higher number - I think I had like 10 replies to vanima and you at that time and was wondering if it was something I didCrazyEvil. From #3 though, it's been consistently 200. I wonder if the 200 limit is to padding on considerations for imagesTongue

... nope. Sorry. All I remember is it was written by a male author and is set in the space-travelling future. It was a grand cross-galaxy space epic...

That's insane. No one that tall can fit in such a tiny car Shocked

And he certainly fits in, though I think juuuuust.

Just don't try to fit anyone in the backseat at the same time he's driving. Tongue

And re your question about where Thranduil keeps his second sword when not in battle. I've been wondering that same thing. I think he wears the one at home (as we see in DOS) and probably dusts off the other one when going to batlle. Or when he steps outside his Halls to explore the more dangerous parts of Mirkwood. When not in use, he might keep his second sword by his nightstand? Smile

I'd think he's either
- one of those pro-level people who's so attuned to each weapon he uses, he's particular about which sword goes where, and in that case, would only wear his main sword at home and yes, just dust off the secondary sword when he goes out for adventure
- or he's equally comfortable with either sword in either hand, then he'd definitely be keeping the one out of rotation by his nightstandLaugh

Ahh trick question. Of course Thrandy would save his beloved Moose. Leggy can take care of himself I'm sureAngelic So yeey team TEAM! Ha that does sound a bit strange.

Good one! ... and yeah, I have my "moments"Tongue

And you're welcome on the quote. Though I thought it apt a large horse is named Moose. In one book that I love, it features a very large dog that a character, out of convenience, calls Horse Sly

     Gotta walk before you can run [In reply to]

It can be a pain. But once you get the hang of it, you'd be fine. But yes, it's best to read the rules, once is good enough Angelic, and then get on with enjoying TA or whereever you fancy on the boards. I mean, if it was not in consideration of TORn guidelines, I reckon we'd be on something like thread #37 by now with all the WW goodies i'd be hotlinking like crazy. But to abide rules, and since it's such a pain to add an image for every clicky, I copped out and thus the WWsEvilTongue So yeah, we learn and adapt, and we all live happily after. THE END.
