World Hobbit Day Party Lineup & Update! Can't Post



We're a week away from Saturday, September 22nd and Bilbo and Frodo's birthday party!! The festivities this year have grown into World Hobbit Day as we also celebrate Tolkien Week AND the 75th anniversary of The Hobbit publication [Which is actually the September 21st (1937;) but we can give them some leeway] How cool is it that the party is happening over the weekend!?!?

Below is a list of party activities fellow TORnsibs have volunteered to share. The games/activities/fanfic will be spread across 3 Discussion Boards: Main, Off Topic, and The Lord of the Rings Movie. Sadly, the Hobbit Discussion Board will not be one of the party-stops. That place is just way too busy! :) But I will definitely post a heads-up in there!

So none of the Boards get overwhelmed with posts that can force activities off the page too fast, I've taken the liberty to offer suggestions of where each activity can be found. Contributors, please feel free to post anytime during the day or night. *whispers* The earlier, the better ;)

After all of the activities are posted, I'll collect all the links and put them into one place to share with all of the Boards so everyone can play along. We encourage anyone who is inspired to contribute a game/activity to the party to feel free to do so, but please post them on the LotR Discussion Board to avoid overloading Main/Off Topic :)

Let me know if I've forgotten anyone or if you would like to add to the party :)

THANKS ALL!

No Worries! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

The official party is next Saturday, and I think it's great to have the lines ahead of time to have more of a chance to work on them. So putting onto another Board totally works! :D Have at it! *high five*

Is it ok to spread over the 21st and 22nd? [In reply to] Can't Post

I was hoping to spread my trivia game over two days, simply because of the number of questions. I wanted to do 10 each day so that people weren't overwhelmed in one sitting. Is this ok?

Thanks for organising gramma. Looks great. Smile

I would be glad to have a co-line-picker! [In reply to] Can't Post

I usually just wait for the day and then pick lines off the board right then, so have nothing done ahead of time. But that does not mean we could not find some real doozies ahead of time and have one all ready to go that will be especially fun.

If you want to conspire with me to pick the "best-ests" ones, on party day or leading up to it, I would love that!

Will PM you!

Really wish I'd been up-to-date, and I might've gotten involved, but I think I'll sit out (got a lot of studies, anyway). I'll be sure to drop in at some point for these, though! Smile

My thought was to throw the GTKYT out Friday, also . . . [In reply to] Can't Post

. . . as I live in the western US, if I open it up Friday morning local time, most of the world is in Friday afternoon-evening (or even into Saturday) by that point.

Sound good?

World Hobbit Day - Avatars for you to use [In reply to] Can't Post

For those who wish, I've prepared 75 avatars for World Hobbit Day. My intention was to showcase Hobbit book illustrations but I think a few that haven't been published in a book edition sneaked into the bunch.

To see the avatars (yes, you can preview these!) go here:
http://www.amagpiesnest.com/a/torn/whd/avatars.htm

Avatars must be uploaded onto TORn from your own computer. So you must download the image you want onto your computer and then upload it from there onto TORn's servers. Directions for setting an image as your avatar can be found by following the link for Torn Image Posting Guide in my footer and there's a direct link to the pertinent help page on the Avatar page (at the bottom). If you need more help, ask for it on Feedback. It's not hard.

The names of the images indicate the illustrator. You will see *my* name for the image when you download it onto your computer. Or you can right click on an image displayed on my webpage and either view the properties (if you know how) or open it in a new tab where you will see the name in the url address field.

But once you upload it onto TORn, the image is renamed with random numbers. So you will not be able to find the artist's name of an image used as an avatar. If you want to know who did someone's avatar, you'll have to find that same image on my webpage and investigate.

You can use these images as soon and as long as you want. I will not guarantee that this page will be in place forever. If you want those images for some future use, download them now. :-)

enjoy.

**REMEMBER to put "WORLD HOBBIT DAY PARTY" in your subject line!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

For those who are making contributions to the games/party items, please start your subject line with "WORLD HOBBIT DAY PARTY". That way it will be easier to pick out your post and unify all the action :)

If you're just replying to the Party post, you don't have to add it to your subject line.... just in case I've confused anyone... as I am always SO GOOD at doing ;)


THANKS!!!

Or should I say, "FABULOUS MAGPIE!" You've really done so much work on all of these footers and avatars. MASSIVE THANK YOU! What a great way to dress up our posts for the party :D

I don't know if the Mayan Calendar predicted this, but I will try to make one of these avatars work for me, just for YOU! Smile

I think those of us who use an avatar... [In reply to] Can't Post

get quite attached to them. :-)

I may change my avatar out every 5-10 days, but they are always - with one exception - magpies.

The one exception was when I posted a black and white rabbit for Easter. But that was truly the only time my avatar has not a magpie since the new boards opened.

I have various Tolkien-ish magpie avatars I have used. I am still considering if I want to switch to Roac for a day or two or use one of my Tolkien-ish magpies. Or maybe I just need a new one.

But I won't be too surprised if almost no one uses these. Those that have avatars might not want to switch and those that don't probably have a reason why they don't.
