My curiosity was recently piqued concerning the general pattern of “join date”. There are members on this forum of great antiquity dating back to the the earliest barrows ever dug. Within the “Members List” page, there is a link named “Search Members” located just above the “Avatar” column. If one chooses the “Advanced Search” link, a wealth of options presents itself. I chose “Order Results by” Join Date and was easily satisfied, but the search is powerful and much more could easily be gleaned.

Isn't a little against the spirit of the thing to be quite so keen on advancement and to broadcast the details of who and how many? Might look likr bragging.. or fishing.....

I have another question about the repping system? How many points do I give out when I rep someone. Is there a formula to it. I have 3 jewels box things, and almost 500 posts, just curious to see how many points i "rep" somebody up, when I do rep them. Thanks.

You know, I recently got "negative points" for responding to a thread that's been discussed too many times? Oh better yet, the person didn't leave his name, you might as well tell me who you are, instead of hiding. Anyway, I just felt like making it known, if you are going to give me points, fess up, write your name down, instead of hiding.

Thanks for that link, BW. I'd been wondering how that all worked out.

Question Silly idea moment:

If you get übermany reps, can you design your own reputation title?

Not asking for myself (obviously), but the idea of some people (coughdavemFordimBBSauciecoughheyitalmostrhymes!) getting certain priveleges with 10 or more boxes intrigue me.

1420! The necklace--or crown--grows

I notice that davem is now the bearer of two glowing jewels, out of seven. And congratulations to Sauce for moving up to third place with his own jewel.

I wonder if this means that 200 points are now needed to gain a new jewel? I'm assuming that davem has topped 700 points.

Greetings and welcome to Aragorn's court HerenIstarion and Mark 12_30. As you can see there's a variety of entertainments available to you. That figure smugly puffing away behind the cloud of pipesmoke is davem -- I believe that he is ready to engage you in conversation of a most learned manner.

Somewhere hereabouts Saucey is getting a dart board ready, and I believe that Bethberry has just stepped out to make us all a lovely pot of tea.

Your dressing gowns are there upon the rack and your slippers are before the fire. I'm off to plunder the cellar for a new cask of ale (SpM and Bb got into our last one yesterday afternoon. . .)

I take it then that the court of Aragorn is designated as a private members club or else you will be in contravention of the new anti-smoking legislation... lol ... *imagines Agargorn, Gandalf, Gimli and the hobbits huddled under a porch in Minas Tirith puffing away*

And has HI elevation to this rank anythinf to do with the change in his avatar? Has he quite literally become a faceless bureaucrat? The rep. hierachy suddenly gets sinister..

Ah, the ban doesn't come in for some years yet, and if an establishment does not serve food then it can be exempt. Which is good because my local is one of those real ale pubs which disdains the very notion of food . *she says, merrily puffing away like Denise Royle and spilling ash across the computer*

Is that how you spell bureaucrat? I will have call myself a 'pen-pusher' no longer.

I would surmise that, since it is a virtual court, the "arguments" used to justify that particular (ill-thought out and illiberal) piece of proposed legislation do not apply.

Congrats and welcome to Helen and HI - and to davem for your second jewel.

So does that mean no hunt ban either

Sorry, Mith, um.....Mithalwen! I suppose it's like when people assume my first name is really longer than it is and automatically write it down, hence me having to snatch the paper off them before my wages get signed over to someone else...

Hunt Ban? Careful, or it's going to get like one of those pubs which has to have a sign on the wall saying "No religion or politics to be discussed in this establishment".



EDIT:

I apologise for wittering (see below). *mortified*

Ah! More to mingle with in Aragorn's court. In addition to the recently arrived Helen/Mark and HerenIstarion, we also now have Kransha and two very esteemed and esteemable mods, Child of the Seventh Age and Estelyn.

Ladies, I welcome more company from the distaff side! Congratulations all.

Welcome Kransha, Child and Esty -- it's getting positively crowded in here.

Ah davem, remember the days we could lounge around here in our bathrobes? *wistful sigh*

Hmm. . .not so sure about Kransha however. . .are orcs allowed in Minas Tirith, even well-dressed orcs?

Like Esty, I also thank you for the welcome and the congratulations. Thanks for the tea. Interesting scent it has.

Er, where are the mushrooms grown hereabouts? You do have mushrooms, yes? And seed-cake? Ale perhaps?

My goodness, davem, that's a big fancy chair you're sitting on.

H-I, let's go up to the top of the tower, and have a look around at the lay of the land-- all those twists and turns made my head spin a bit.

I suppose Fordim will be expecting another round of port and cigars, for he has now earned his seventh jewel. Two sparkley ones!

Wonderful work, Fordim, particularly on your Rohan game, Shadow of the West. Each post is a gem itself.

Yes, it's good to be once again at davem's heights.

(Gimme that chair!)

For this I think I'd be willing to break out the champagne and the really good cheese and chocolates, however.

Many thanks to all for the kind wishes. With so many beginning to crowd into Elessar's court, the place is getting a bit cramped, to say nothing of the strain on the kitchen and scullery staff who are trying to keep you all fed and clean. (Some folk seem to have prodigious appetites!)

As a humble Hobbit, Cami naturally feels more comfortable "under the stairs" so I am slinking down to the kitchen where I can whip up a table full of hearty fare both for residents of the court and those friends who are visiting....

It's also nice to have the women around to serve the drinks. Cf. Galadriel and Eowyn.

The Eye Super Stars

I, being an admin, have the wonderful ability to drag people down from their Super Star status, especially if they are chatting in this forum about that very topic. Not that I'd ever have to do such a thing, considering how quickly such folks take a hint.

Well, we do take hints, Messrs.

So question about reputations in general:

We are not likely to see a development in other direction - the only person not to have green sqaure has a blue one and is merely 'slipping'. It's good to have it so - for one, it shows we do not have particularly bad posters (i.e. 'trolls') around. Secondly, it shows we ourselves are not that wicked - we tend to give positive rating or nothing rather than rate someone down. But, with dying cats swinging to and fro inside my mind, I, showing my purely scholastic curiosity, would be glad to learn what titles go in opposite direction. Suppose we had someone with seven red squares, what would be his titulage? So and so is Morgoth's buddy? I'm asking for that kind of knowledge only as I hope (and I'm almost 100% sure) we have no chance of ever seeing it happening with our own eyes. So, what's there in store for those going in other direction?

thanks and cheers
