Town Guides are members of Elftown who well know their way around the winding streets, dark caves and sprawling woods of Elftown. They are active on help-wikis and/or in the forums such as the newbie-forum. Knowing the way they can answer all sorts of questions and help new members get acquainted with all that is possible on Elftown.

2006-10-02 [taste the rainbow, punk]: That works fine! Thanks a lot!

2006-10-30 [NightTheOwl]: How can I become a town guide?

2006-10-30 [ally]: You help out newbies, answer questions that sort of things.

2006-10-31 [Ocean Soul]: Actually you can be guide without the title and the badge as well.. when you see someone who is new or who has problems with ET because he/she doesn't know where to go/how to do things, you just help them ^_^ I think a lot of people do that and the more the better :)

2007-01-14 [laphon1]: The last time I visited there was no need to be a member. So now, how do I find a specific person's gallery? (Where is the "find stuff" button? 

2007-01-14 [Zab]: You have mistaken this (elftown) for elfwood, I think. :) Go to

2007-06-10 [ally]: Ok... now I'm lonely :P

2007-06-10 [Sunrose]: *hugs* :P

2008-02-16 [snoozy]: I want to erase my account, how can I do that?

2008-02-16 [SilverFire]: You can't, but if you want to leave elftown, yo can just delete all the information from your presentation, log out and not log back in. :)

2008-03-01 [Pyoko]: how do i export my homepage?

2008-03-01 [ally]: Go to "Update your personal data" and check "yes" where it says: "Do you want your presentation and diary to be viewable by non-members?"

2008-03-01 [Pyoko]: oh ok

2008-05-11 [Sagacious Turkey]: ...

2008-05-11 [Teufelsweib]: [Sagacious Turkey], this is already the third wiki you saw it necessary to spam with your "...". please stop that, will you? it's annoying :)

2008-05-13 [Sagacious Turkey]: What?! But I have like 70 more wikis to check and I was planning on doing that on all of 'em...

2008-05-13 [Teufelsweib]: well, you can stop here then, your point has been made clear ;)

2008-07-13 [Imperator]: Question: Are there going to be more guides or is there only me for a reason?

2008-07-14 [iippo]: There could be more. There just aren't any other people around. You are the only person left in the universe. The rest of us are just a figment of your imagination, a dream that you will soon wake up from, to face the grim reality where the only choice to make is: "cake or pie?"

2008-07-14 [SilverFire]: Not 'cake or death'?

2008-07-14 [iippo]: No, because that one is easy.

2008-07-14 [Teufelsweib]: I just realized that indeed, if I was faced with that horrible question, I could never make a choice =/ cake is good, but so is pie... I would be trapped in a spiral forever D:

2008-07-14 [Imperator]: OMG! My imagination is talking to me! All the power associated with being an Imperator must be driving me crazy!

2008-07-16 [Imperator]: Now they are silent... Like this boring, old, sad, empty, unused page...

2008-07-16 [Teufelsweib]: *mournz*

2008-07-16 [nokaredes]: Who rates the wiki on how Informative, Friendly, etc.?

2008-07-16 [iippo]: Councillers.

2008-07-16 [SilverFire]: IF you want a specific page rating you can ask on the About Wiki-ratings page, (but it must be exported).

2008-07-16 [Imperator]: Dang it! Beaten to the punch again! Oh well, I didn't actually know that one anyway.

2008-07-16 [Teufelsweib]: if I were you I would stay online 24/7 bashing the F5 button non-stop to this page to check if anyone asks anything, just to be sure :P

2008-07-16 [Imperator]: What? F5? Does that refresh the page?

2008-07-16 [SilverFire]: Yup. :)

2008-07-16 [Imperator]: ... Maybe I'm not qualified for this job if I don't know what "F5" does.

2008-07-16 [SilverFire]: You need to be able to guide people around ET, not their keyboards. :P

2008-07-16 [Imperator]: lol! That actually made me laugh out loud. :D

2008-08-21 [Sagacious Turkey]: Illustrious?! I believe you have mislabeled Mort up there...

2008-08-22 [Mortified Penguin]: Hopefully I won't be here long... I'm needed in higher positions elsewhere.

2008-08-22 [Paul Doyle]: How can I be guided through the maze of guile without copping-out and proceeding directly to bob's diner? I'm not looking so much for a cheesy cheat-sheet, mind you. I am looking for a sort of Elftown Rosetta Stone that only the guides are purported to know about. And oh, how many blocks of ramen instant noodles should I stash away in my maze of guile survival gear kit?


2008-08-22 [Mortified Penguin]: The answer to all of your questions... is 3.

2008-08-22 [Paul Doyle]: Not 42? Well, bugger me!

2008-08-25 [iippo]: Where would you keep 42 blocks of noodles? o.O

2008-08-25 [Paul Doyle]: That's why we have guides to answer mystical, arcane Elftown related questions, such as these.

Maybe they're stashed away on the old tech page. Remember that? "Warning! Things are getting a bit unstable right now." etc, etc, etc. The tech page ought to resurface, just for us to bask in a wave of ancient Elftown nostalgia.

2008-09-30 [Imperator]: Why wasn't Mort a guide while I was one? Is there a rule of one or something? Together we could've achieved extraordinary things... If you just give me the stone!

2008-10-01 [SilverFire]: No particular reason, we just didn't consider him whilst you were guide. And no, there can be more than one.

2008-10-01 [Imperator]: Oh, okay! "Whilst"... Hee hee!

2008-11-08 [Chimes]: When did the Town Guide option appear in the Elftown Titles and Orders section? O.o *just spotted it* Or is that a Crew thing?

2008-11-08 [iippo]: Is a crew thing :3

2008-11-08 [Chimes]: Aha. Confusion over. Thank you. XD

2008-11-09 [Paul Doyle]: Maybe it's because I'm tired from a long night at work and I'm currently winding down---but I initially misread part of the comment by [Chimes] as : "Elftown Titties and Orders section." xD

2008-11-19 [Thunder Cid]: I am interested about the guides. If anyone knows of any opening positions please get back in contact with me as soon as possible.

2008-11-20 [Mortified Penguin]: You have the support of all the current guides.

2008-11-20 [Thunder Cid]: Wow thank you!

2008-11-20 [All_Most PUNK]: Noted, Cid.

2009-01-18 [Alexi Ice]: Congrats, Cid! ^^

2009-01-18 [Thunder Cid]: *blush* Thank you all ^^

2009-01-19 [nehirwen]: Please continue your conversation elsewhere, this page is not for chatter. ;)

2009-01-19 [Alexi Ice]: I apologize. ^^ Lol. *Deleting my own comments now*

2009-01-20 [Teufelsweib]: you don't have to delete your comments immediately, now it looks like artsy was talking to herself :P

2009-01-20 [Alexi Ice]: She will delete them too...we start this a lot <3 Lol ^^ We two chatter boxes love chatting with eachother.

2009-01-20 [Mortified Penguin]: Why, that's why Bob's Diner exists! It's a worry free environment where people can come and chat! ...seriously... go there... *grabs an old lady*... or the ***** gets it!! *waves a gun around*

2009-02-21 [hanhepi]: shouldnt there be a veteran's section for the guides? shouldn't there be a sepia toned badge for us retireees too? *sniffles*i'm feeling all unloved. i've been un-guided. (took me 3 weeks long to notice i was missing a badge.)

2009-02-21 [Hedda]: Hm... You're right there. I could easily make a veteran page, but a badge seems a little too much maybe.

2009-02-21 [hanhepi]: the badge doesn't really matter. i was just supprised there wasn't a listing under veterans for the guides.

2009-02-21 [SilverFire]: Could you make the banner at the bottom match the colour of the rest of the badge? Looks a bit odd to me at the moment. :)

2009-02-21 [SilverFire]: I... can't see the difference, sorry. <img:44166_1164144921.gif>

2009-02-21 [hanhepi]: i was meaning the veterans page. just adding a listing of the guides there. i don't think a seperate page is warranted.

2009-02-21 [Yncke]: I don't want to nitpick, but the it needs some cracks on it too. ;)

2009-02-22 [hanhepi]: holy crap. i never noticed the cracks in the veteran badges. i can't believe that i never noticed it. never, untill yall just pointed that out.

2009-02-22 [Imperator]: *gasp* You're right! You don't miss it until its gone...

2009-02-23 [hanhepi]: scarry isnt it?

2009-02-24 [Teufelsweib]: the banner at the bottom needs to be made green though, as SilverFire said. good work though, Artsy ^^

2009-02-24 [nehirwen]: Green does not match the badge, brownish is ok. :p

2009-02-24 [Teufelsweib]: hmmm.. indeed, apparently all the veteranbadges don't have a green banner O_o my bad! though I'd swear it was green... >_> oh well

2009-02-24 [Chimes]: I do believe Silvie meant that it needs to match the rest of the badge... it currently looks a bit out of place. The rest of the veteran badges blend really well with their banner... but this one doesn't... the banner sticks out.

2009-02-26 [SilverFire]: What Chimes said. :3

2009-04-10 [Thunder Cid]: Here is my resignation. See you all around.

2009-04-10 [Mortified Penguin]: Dibs on my old position as guide!

2009-04-10 [Paul Doyle]: Mort just needs a position and badge that are both titled . . . "Mort". I guess there would be a bowl of ramen in the badge, and maybe some Naruto-ish anime dude thrown in for good measure :P

2009-04-10 [Imperator]: XD lol!

2009-04-10 [Mortified Penguin]: *has a gun*

2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: Who is going to be the new Guide since Cid retired?

2009-04-10 [Chimes]: I think there's a discussion about that in the forum. :) But I could be wrong.

2009-04-10 [Mortified Penguin]: Come on... pick me! *still has that gun*

2009-04-10 [Imperator]: I call being Mort's right noodly-appendage man!

2009-04-10 [Mortified Penguin]: I second that motion.

2009-04-10 [Thunder Cid]: Keep this wiki chatfree so that the Guides can do their work. Unrelated comments may be deleted.

2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: Has Imperator ever been a guild?

2009-04-10 [Chimes]: I think so... but I could be wrong. [Imperator], have you? XD

2009-04-10 [SilverFire]: Yeah, he has.

2009-04-10 [Imperator]: Yeah, I was a guide. Then I quit because everyone on the council wanted to kill me for unrelated comments. XD I don't do it anymore though, I'm a good boy.

2009-04-10 [Mortified Penguin]: No reason we can't both be guides... again...

2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: What about you, Chimes? Ever wanted to be a guild?

2009-04-10 [Chimes]: I did once. But I'm quite happy as I am, at the moment. :] If people want to ask me things, they can but I don't feel the need to have a job devoted to it. :)

2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: I think Cid is back, so it's alright! <3

2009-04-10 [Thunder Cid]: Keep this wiki chatfree so that the Guides can do their work. Unrelated comments may be deleted.

Geez don't you all ever listen?

2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: These are not unrelated comments, thank you. You RESIGNED so we were looking for a replacement so the guide can do his work. Without a guide, that might be a bit difficult.

2009-04-10 [Mortified Penguin]: Our comments were pertinent to the wiki. And what we were discussing was a replacement guide... Keep this wiki chatfree so that the Guides can do their work couldn't really be fulfilled without any guides.

Even though you're back now, that doesn't mean there can't be any other guides. For too long, this has been a one guide system. I believe it's about time Elftown was given the proper amount of guides... the number that was inscribed in Elftown's holy doctrine... four.

2009-04-10 [Mortified Penguin]: dare you post a comment essentially saying the same thing as mine, while I was still typing mine! Jerk! about next time you wait until I'm finished typing before you start saying something...? ...the nerve of some people... *eats ramen*...

2009-04-10 [Chimes]: Akane, there is a conversation about that in the forum *points* Go add to it. :P

2009-04-10 [SilverFire]: Cid, are you still gonna retire? I added you to the Veterans wikis, but I haven't removed you from any active wikis yet, so if you wanna come back, all someone has to do is edit the veteranss and everyone can pretend nozzink every happened. <_<

2009-04-10 [Thunder Cid]: Yes ma'am I'll continue my work.

Also I sent you a message, when you get the time ^^

2009-04-10 [SilverFire]: ^^. Yay. I'm in France atm, I'll check my messages when I get back at some obscene time on Sunday morning. XP Gives me something to look forward too.

2009-04-10 [Thunder Cid]: No worries I'm in a war at right now XD

2009-04-10 [Imperator]: Elftown has a holy doctrine?

2009-04-10 [Mortified Penguin]: Duh. Of course it does.

2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: Chimes - UGH! TOO many forums. Which one, the crew, the assembly, the crew/assembly?

2009-04-10 [Chimes]: Crew, I think. (For future reference, I think the Crew/Assembly one only really deals with contests)

2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: I found it Thank you though! (Got my lazy but up and searched for it. )
Welcome back, Cid.

2009-04-12 [hanhepi]: i think i just found a typo on the wiki... its in number 3 in the list up there... is "commentsection" supposed to be one word, or two?

2009-04-12 [Alexi Ice]: It is definatly two words, thanks. I fixed it.

2009-06-24 [your naked night]: how do i become an elftown guide

2009-06-24 [Thunder Cid]: Kind of hard to explain. What I did was showed interest in the position. After a few months [Hedda] placed me up as a Guide. Something that could help you is if you make yourself an application and Apply to the crew.

2009-06-24 [Janouk]: And make sure you know your way around Elftown. Besides private messaging, you should also know how to work with the forums, wiki etc. In short, you need to be able to help people who have any sorts of questions about this place. If the council feels you're up for the job, you might get appointed.

2009-06-24 [Thunder Cid]: Right, that too ^^

2009-06-24 [Janouk]: :p

2009-06-24 [your naked night]: ok are my wikis good please check them

2009-06-24 [Thunder Cid]: Which ones are we looking at?

2009-06-24 [your naked night]: how do i add a wiki banner

2009-06-24 [hanhepi]: see... there's a prime example of a question you would need to know the answer to in order to be a guide.

2009-06-24 [your naked night]: no its actuelly because im at the libery and the systams different there get your facts right

2009-06-24 [hanhepi]: the pseudo html of elftown is the same no matter where you log in from.

2009-06-24 [Chimes]: [hanhepi] is a staff member on this site, please show her more respect in future. She is telling the truth. No matter where you are it is the same.

2009-06-24 [hanhepi]: was he disrespectful? did i miss a comment?

2009-06-24 [Chimes]: "get your facts right" - Desrespectful.

2009-06-24 [hanhepi]: oooooohhhhhhhhh.

2009-06-24 [Kaimee]: Since when was anyone respectful towards us crew? I seem to have missed something xD

2009-06-24 [your naked night]: how was that desrespectful i was telling the truth as well we are all humen on here and we can speak what we feel should be spoken staff or not

2009-06-24 [Chimes]: Well, sometimes they are, especially when they want help :P It's polite to be nice when you are asking for help.

You were wrong though. :P The Elftown html does not change regadless of which computer you happen to be on, because it's elftown's workings and not the computer's that matter when wiki editing.

2009-06-24 [hanhepi]: well, i guess you did kinda have a snotty tone. i overlooked it. snotty tones rarely bug me though.

2009-06-24 [your naked night]: it doesnt let me acsess all pages. why do i bother even talkin to you all i get is disrespect and i wasnt being snotty i soeak the truth members can do it to

2009-06-24 [Chimes]: Which pages doesn't it let you access?

2009-06-24 [hanhepi]: will it let you go to help or pseudo HTML?

2009-06-24 [SilverFire]: [your naked night], to have a wiki-banner you first need to create the image, then upload it either to your house or to a wiki. Then right-click on the image and select 'properties' from the menu that appears. copy the image location you see there, then go to the wiki you want the banner to appear on and edit it. Paste the url you just copied there, and place '<img:' at the start of it, and '>' at the end, simple.

We can drop the disrespectful/snotty bit now, since hanhepi didn't even care.

2009-06-24 [your naked night]: it dont matter now, you lot made it to difficult for me adios

2009-06-24 [Kaimee]: It's strangely like evolution, only the stubbornest seem to make it to crew? :P
Oh well. If that was too difficult, maybe [your naked night] would have more fun just being a normal user :)

2009-06-24 [your naked night]: see what i meen your nasty the lot of u saying stuff like that you are disrespectful to users on here i just asked a few things to find out more and you all have a go at me gee wizz i thought this site was the best one ive been on. ive recommended it to over 125 of my friends and family and all i get back is this. you make me sick

2009-06-24 [Kaimee]: No one is being mean to you here, please do not over-react.
In fact, [SilverFire] has politely explained to you exactly what you need to do to upload a wiki banner, or place one on a wiki page.
It's great that you've recommended Elftown to so many people, keep up the good work!

2009-06-24 [hanhepi]: what the hell? where was anyone being mean?i gave you a few links to try, silverfire explained putting an image on a wiki...

2009-06-24 [your naked night]: [Kaimee] when you said i should just be a user i found that very disrespectful due to how much i want this, dont you think that you should try to understand the person first before making remarks like that

2009-06-24 [Kaimee]: No, I already spent several messages trying to understand you, but found it nigh on impossible.
I was simply saying, that as you had said "it dont matter now, you lot made it to difficult for me adios", that perhaps you would be more happy without all these difficulties, especially the difficulty of being required to know how to use elftown thoroughly, before being accepted as crew.
If you are still determined to become crew, go ahead :) But you will have to face things much more difficult than posting a wiki-banner, and probably with these exact same people :)

2009-06-24 [your naked night]: for starters i like difficult things to sort out, always have always will i have had difficult jobs all sorts

2009-06-24 [Kaimee]: You should put this in your application then :)
And perhaps, read the help section about different types of formatting (called pseudo HTML), to help you begin learning about Elftown.

2009-06-24 [hanhepi]: i keep getting told there are new comments here, but there arn'

2009-06-24 [Alexi Ice]: Same here. I belive the comments made are being deleted ^^ No worries.

2009-06-24 [SilverFire]: I deleted a few unnecessarily antagonistic comments, since they served no purpose and were off-topic chatter (Which belongs on now, or elsewhere).

2009-06-24 [Mortified Penguin]: Unnecessarily antagonistic? The comment left was pertaining to the current conversation and was intended to help.

2009-07-04 [Nioniel]: *so happy* thankies!

2009-07-04 [Thunder Cid]: No worries, you earned it ^^

2009-07-04 [hanhepi]: congratulations new guides! decides to test them:
how do i make an image on my wikipage show up upsidedown?

2009-07-04 [Thunder Cid]: I can't answer can I?

2009-07-04 [hanhepi]: well, that would be a little silly, concidering you have been a guide for a while. :P
no cheating and tellling them the answer, or where to find the answer either. this is good practice for them. :P

2009-07-04 [Thunder Cid]: I won't ^^

2009-07-04 [hanhepi]: ok good. :)i didn't figgure you would, but thought it best to express it. :P

2009-07-04 [Thunder Cid]: No worries

2009-07-04 [Nioniel]: Found, in Pseudo HTML, #Rotating Images says:
"If you want to rotate an image (That image has to be on Elftown!), you can add an 'l' (left), 'r' (right) or 'a' (around) after 'img'..."

So your tag would be <imga:


2009-07-04 [Flisky]: Awww...Phoenix beat me to it.

2009-07-04 [sequeena_rae]: Hello guides I have a guide for you :P German Shepherd Dog Guide ;D It's a work in progress

2009-07-04 [Nioniel]: :D

2009-07-04 [sequeena_rae]: ^_______^

2009-07-04 [your naked night]: Λ______________________________Λ

2009-07-04 [Thunder Cid]: Please keep the random chatter down. Thank you.

2009-07-04 [hanhepi]: verry good phoenix!

2009-07-04 [Alexi Ice]: Congradulations to both of you!

2009-07-04 [Nioniel]: Thankies!

2009-07-04 [your naked night]: yes good work you two.

2009-07-04 [Flisky]: Thanks. ^_^

2009-07-04 [your naked night]: your welcome

2009-07-26 [Lin Star]: So, in the "welcome" message, the links were all a bright blue color. How come that is?
At first, I thought it was because I hadn't visited the page before, but when I came here, all the links were the usual green...

2009-07-26 [Flisky]: Links on pages are all green. I think the messages are a bit different, though. The links are blue until you click them.

2009-07-26 [Lin Star]: Ah. That makes sense...thank you. :D

2009-07-26 [Chimes]: *appears* It may just be your browser though but don't quote me on that. :) *disappears*

2009-07-26 [Lin Star]: ...random. And I figured. I think it's just how it registers at first, until you click the link or something. *shrugs*

2009-07-26 [Flisky]: *quotes Chimes, just for the heck of it* If it's the browser, then it's mine too. But I use Opera. Meh.

2009-07-26 [Lin Star]: I use Mozilla Foxfire. *shrugs*

2009-07-26 [sequeena_rae]: The links were changed a while back when [Hedda] changed the layout of Elftown :) it's not certain browsers.

2009-07-26 [Lin Star]: Oh. Thank you. :D I didn't know he changed the layout. It looks the same to me. *scratches head*

2009-07-26 [sequeena_rae]: I can see you only joined this month, the changes were made a good few months ago :)

2009-07-26 [Flisky]: Thanks, Queenie! *fades back into watcher mode*

2009-07-26 [Lin Star]: Yes, that...I had previously been a member a good...I wanna say 10 months although it feels like eons, ago and had some decent ET experiences. *explained more in house*

2009-07-27 [Kaimee]: My stylesheet makes all my links a dusky purple colour, instead of blue or green, so you could always change it if it bothers you :)

2010-12-05 [Mortified Penguin]: You should totally re-hire me for this gig!

2010-12-05 [Thunder Cid]: I'm going to let Fae give it a try right now before I think about anymore hiring.

2011-03-18 [Thunder Cid]: We have your application and will get in touch with you if we need any additional help :)

2011-06-25 [Nioniel]: Congrats, Cilla! :)

2011-06-29 [the ack]: hi i can't check my messiages when i click he goes to server error who do i talk to about this?

2011-06-29 [Thunder Cid]: Have you brought this up in the Bug forum?

2011-06-30 [the ack]: bug forum?

2011-06-30 [iippo]: The link to the bug forum is <forum:Elftown, Bugs> You can leave a posting in there about any technical problems. :)

2011-06-30 [Thunder Cid]: Not at the moment I'm afraid. I picked up a new trainee the other day and will be working with her for a while.

2011-10-24 [iippo]: Please refrain from commenting on official wikipages.

2011-10-24 [iippo]: You have also been told to stop spamming official wikipages.

2011-10-24 [Teufelsweib]: the comment box section is for, if you read the above well, to ask questions to the guides.

2011-10-25 [Flisky]: Sammie, please stop commenting on this page about this matter. If the guides need help, they will request it. Thank you for your interest, however the current guides have this under control.

2011-10-25 [kians mummy]: Ok then, no worries

2013-12-09 [Teufelsweib]: should cillamoon be removed, since she's not crewbie anymore?

2013-12-09 [wicked fae mage]: If she has been fully de-badged, I think so

2013-12-09 [Mortified Penguin]: Maybe ask her if she still has any interest in being a guide?

2014-08-15 [Ravendust]: I feel accomplished now :D

2014-08-15 [Flisky]: You are. ^^
