Please sir, who's Citizen #1?

I know it's not strictly what you're looking for, but it's asked often enough.

Thank you thank you THANK YOU for explaining the mysteries of the Personal Messages. I had carefully read over the FAQs just the other day trying to find this very information with no luck at all.

Do the mouse-overs for the smilies not work on MACs? I never see them even when I mouse over them.

Miz Lobelia, I'm not sure about MACs and mouse-overs. But be sure to try two things:

First, make sure you you have clicked on "Post Reply" and preparing to write a message.

Second, leave the mouse still over a smilie for several seconds.

If you still don't have anything show up, my guess is that it doesn't work on the MAC. However, hope is not lost, for you can still count them (if you're patient enough). The code for a smilie is ;#

Just count starting at '1' on the top left and ending at '56' at the bottom right. Good luck! []

Wow! I can't believe this old dog of a thread has been revived! I've updated it by the way and about this buddy list...I added a couple of people to my buddy list ages ago and as far as I can tell it makes no difference at all! Maybe someone else could shed some light on this quandry.

The old dog's old thread revived!

But how could you shatter our illusions like this:

Citizen #1 is the default administrator account created by the bulletin board upon its inception. It is not WGW's evil twin brother.


I want it to be the evil twin. I watch Star Trek. Evil twins are good!

I am now one unhappy newbie.....

To tell the truth, I had thought it was because WGW was the Steward and so of course was reserving #1 for the King should he return. Thought it quite cleverly done, actually. I am sorry to see the actual explanation be something so mundane.

Quite right Miz Lobelia. I would definitely have to agree with you on this point.

*displays ignorance/stupidity*

I really want to know this. On the main forums page, there is a link to vote at TolkienWorld. When you get there, what are you supposed to do? How do you register a vote?

By SAA, do you mean SSA? So if I click, then arrive at that site, I have voted? If so, the whole process is as clear as badly-cellared beer.

But my grateful thanks for your all-too-gentlemanly help.

And I am delighted to be finally welcomed to MT by you! I hope I meet some nice people here.....

I don't think that clicking on the link is all that you need to do. You need to follow one of the links to the rankings in order to register your vote.

Well, maybe WGW could help on this one because I thought clicking the link increased the 'out' number. Clicking on the link within those sites will increase the 'in' number...I will research...
