2005-09-28 [J.E.R]: HOW DO I ADD PEOPLE
2005-09-28 [Sunrose]: Add people to where? :)
2005-10-02 [angel dragon]: how do i make relations?
2005-10-02 [Sunrose]: First you have to have sent a message to and received a message from that member. Once that happened, you can go to their house, scroll down to the messagesection and 'suggest a relation'. You can either select one of the 4 types of relations or fill one in yourself :)
2005-10-08 [DraxxslilAngel]: is there anyway you can change my member name ..i just wanna change my name to someelse not the whole thing just the numbers? if u can be soo nice to help me out? thx you

2005-10-18 [Greenie123]: i hate elf town how do i delete myself from it?
2005-10-18 [Sunrose]: You can't delete yourself, you can only remove your pictures and empty your description and the likes... :)
2005-10-18 [Blvd. of broken dreams]: gee... why do you hate elftown? I think it rocks!
2005-10-18 [Paz]: Everyone has their opinions I guess. Maybe he joined it to try it out and it turned out that Geenie123 didn't like it. Not everyone likes here, I've learned. :)
2005-10-19 [fob looks so good in blue]: i tried to use the strike out and it doesnt work.. like bold underline stuff like that.. how come it doesn't strike out the text?

2005-10-19 [Sunrose]: It does now..
2005-10-19 [fob looks so good in blue]: can i just not see it or something?
2005-10-19 [Sunrose]: I don't know, but I see strikethrough in your comment and on your house..
2005-10-19 [fob looks so good in blue]: really? its not showing up for me... i dont know why..

2005-10-19 [fob looks so good in blue]: yea...its the 'sheet style' i was using shroomish...an
2005-10-19 [True, plain and simple]: The <s> tag is not defined for that stylesheet.
2005-10-19 [Penguinlord]: yeah, that can be a pain. the best way is just to use the standard stylesheet, or run a stub that mods it.
2005-10-20 [Denomic_Forces]: Um? i am looking for other chatrooms other tahn just the three lissed?
2005-10-20 [dragonflye]: click the wiki button at the top of the screen and go to the wiki index. there are many different kind of wiki's to choose from
2005-10-24 [grayl2265]: hi every1
2005-10-27 [Doodle of Cydonia]: Heyla...Um, I was wondering...I wanted to change my description on my home page. I changed it to be under 20,000 characters, as that's what it seems to have to be now, but even when it's under than amount, it still won't let me change it! It's really tiffing me off, seeing as I spent an hour trying to cut it and all...please help!
2005-10-27 [Paz]: You have more than ten images on your house as well. You can only have 10 or less or you can't change anything. Try cutting down your picture count as well as lines and see what happens :)
2005-10-27 [Doodle of Cydonia]: ohhh...Okay, then. Thankyou!
2005-10-27 [Paz]: no problem :)
2005-10-28 [Doodle of Cydonia]: w00t...and it worked! *dances*
2005-10-29 [Pinkdonkey]: I don't really know where to ask this, but my guess is that this is the best place. Anyway, my younger brother would like to join Elf12, but it says you need to be invited. Does he need to create an Elftown account and then find a way to be invited ? And if so, does anyone have an idea of who could invite him ?? =)
2005-10-30 [Pinkdonkey]: ok thanks a lot !!
2005-11-02 [Galactico]: i can't see my pictures
2005-11-02 [Paz]: I can see pictures in both your photo and drawing slots, there might be something wrong with your internet connect for my friend has a similar issue. Are you using dial-up? Also, those pictures (the top on at least) look like the Windows default backgrounds for Windows 2000 :P If I'm not mistaken, isn't that copyrighting in a way?
2005-11-02 [shotokan_gal]: You should stop uploading random images (i.e. ones you didn't take) to your house [Galactico] or I'll just remove them again. If the second one (in your drawing slot) wasn't taken by you either, its against the rules too.
2005-11-16 [Archeress of Mirkwood]: I'm not sure where to ask this question, so I'll put it here and hopefully someone can either answer it or tell me WHERE to get it answered. Either would be very appreciated! Here goes: I have a few names on here that I log into. (They dont' represent me but some of my pets.) This is the only name I am able to log into. When I try to log on any other name it says that the IP Address is banned because of member Son of Lucifer. The names I'm trying to long in on are [Snuggy Buggy], [Jericho Kitty], [Cephus], [Mister Sneakers], [Just Sheba], and [Super Cal the Brave Calico Cat].
2005-11-16 [Paz]: How long have you had this problem? Because [Snuggy Buggy], [Jericho Kitty], [Cephus], and [Mister Sneakers] have all been seen 5 hours ago but [Just Sheba] has been missing for 218 days. I am rusty on this aspect but I suggest you talk to the guards (I hope I'm right) since they're in charge of the bannings
2005-11-16 [Paz]: oh! I didn't know that it mean't that they tried, I thought it only mean't they were one... sorry XP
2005-11-20 [Shur'tugal]: hey i was wondering how you could put up an anamation pic.?
2005-11-20 [Paz]: Animation pics? They aren't allowed on the houses in ET, please post them in wikis or don't post them at all. If you're going to post them in a wiki then use psuedo HTML
2005-11-20 [Sunrose]: I already fixed it when I wrote that :p
2005-11-22 [Foxdecano]: Need help finding the tutorials wiki ^^
2005-11-22 [Foxdecano]: thanks alot ^^
2005-11-22 [dragonflye]: If you make the animation yourself it is allowed, am I not correct?
2005-11-23 [Sunrose]: If it is not flashy or annoying, yes :)
2005-11-27 [dragonflye]: That's what I thought. :)
2005-12-02 [out of ere]: how do i put pics on my description
2005-12-09 [Sunrose]: Only people who know pseudo html answer please: Why does the link pseudo html#HTML tags that don't work not work? When clicking the index on the wiki it also doesn't skip to that section :/ pseudo html#When the pseudo HTML doesn't do what you want doesn't work either...
2005-12-09 [Sunrose]: Edit: it seems the problem is the use of the ' in the link O_O
2005-12-18 [aphrodite's revenge]: how do i make a note to all members that i do not wish to be messaged by turkish guys?
2005-12-18 [Sunrose]: You don't :)
2005-12-20 [vondutch babe]: how do i delete my pic
2005-12-21 [Sunrose]: You click the link 'Upload a new (or delete current) photo' under your picture, then you click the button 'Upload new picture' without actually browsing for a new picture :)
2006-01-01 [BrokeDown~~]: i need help a person has taken my image and posted it and i dont know what to do please message me i hhave sent a message to the guards and they just erased it she has it up again
2006-01-02 [ally]: Please use the report button to inform the guards.
2006-01-09 [~*~Desert Fox~*~]: I have a small question (sorry for bothering o.o) Is there a way to delete all the comments and start fresh?
2006-01-09 [Sunrose]: If you own the wiki you can delete the comments one by one :)
2006-01-10 [~*~Desert Fox~*~]: Oo yea slow... lol no shor cuts?
2006-01-10 [Sunrose]: Nope :)
2006-01-10 [~*~Desert Fox~*~]: < Darn! Is there a way to delete a wiki? Oo
2006-01-10 [Penguinlord]: No, but you can simply remove all the data from it, and delete all the comments.
2006-01-10 [Sunrose]: Or just click 'Don't show comments' :)
2006-01-11 [~*~Desert Fox~*~]: Oo well kk thank you! ^^ *bows and hands them all cookies* >:)
2006-01-19 [puckrockerlord]: if some one can plz help me find a girl with the last name white..laterz
2006-01-19 [Paz]: You're just going to have to go to the 'seek' button up on the upper right corner and type in her name in the name place, which should be near the top. See if you can find her then :)
2006-01-19 [Beatify me Capt'n]: Hey, can anyone help me find out how to put a picture on my house?
2006-01-26 [sassy2006]: how do u delete ur self from elf town
2006-01-27 [Paz]: You can't :) Even if you press that link on the bottom, you won't be deleted.
2006-01-28 [dragonflye]: Just delete your house and Leave.
2006-01-29 [Penguinlord]: but you cannot... best you can do is remove all your house info and change your name to a meaningless string of digits.
2006-01-30 [Paz]: and stop logging on
2006-01-30 [Zab]: you can always change your username (as Penguinlord said) and password to something you won't remember ;) Now, is it much use to discuss the delete-yoursel
2006-03-11 [bluefan44]: I'm having problems logging on with my Firefox, As in I can't log into ET at all with it. When I try it just reloads the page with my login and password. It works on other computers, but this one (i'm using IE right now) is the main one that I use.
2006-03-11 [True, plain and simple]: Delete your cookies. Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Cookies -> Clear Cookies Now
2006-03-11 [SilverFire5467]: AAAAAAAAA, i know its a silly question but, how do i title my gallary work
2006-03-11 [Paz]: Were is this gallery? Is it in a wiki or on your page? :)
2006-03-25 [Black_Dragon_123]: Question!! Is it possible for two people to co-own the same wiki?
2006-03-25 [Black_Dragon_123]: If so, sweet. If not, why not?
2006-03-25 [Paz]: No, I don't think two people can own the same wiki page. You can co-own it by just having one person own it and the other edit, etc. Why? One reason could be is that it has never been needed :)
2006-03-27 [dragonflye]: My comment above was not written the way I meant it. Sorry. I meant delete what's in your house and leave.
2006-03-30 [Black_Dragon_123]: Alright, one reason: Me and this other person are starting a wiki. It be called Ben and William's console predictions. We want to be the only ones who can edit, so stupid people don't fuck with it.
2006-03-30 [hanhepi]: you can always make it password protected, and only have the 2 of you knowing the password. :) no one except ya'll will be able to edit it (ok, i think wikibosses can edit it still, and some of the uberguards, but Joe Schmoe wont be able to do anything other than comment.)
2006-03-30 [Black_Dragon_123]: Awwww... but co-owning would be SOOOOOOOOOOOOO
2006-03-30 [Sunrose]: Nah, members would just start fighting over the ownership :)
2006-03-30 [Paz]: Exactly :) You can also make it so only forum members can edit it and just make a forum for the two of you :) It might be a bit out of the way. Just use a password...
2006-03-30 [Sunrose]: Then there is still only 1 owner :P
2006-03-31 [Paz]: True :) I was just offering an alternative solution other than password protection XD
2006-04-06 [Black_Dragon_123]: But I wanna co-own... *tear*
2006-04-06 [Paz]: Well you can't, so make do with what you can :P
2006-04-07 [Black_Dragon_123]: V.V
2006-05-21 [Mataza_71191]: I am haveing wiki trouble is there a limit onn how many wiki links you can have in a wiki???
2006-05-22 [Zab]: No, there's not. What wiki is it and what exactly is the problem? :)
2006-05-23 [Zab]: You had missed a ] on the wiki link above the one you had problems with. (Press ''view diff'' in the wiki-page data field if you want to see where.) I fixed it for you. :)
2006-05-24 [Mataza_71191]: thank you but i could have swore i had put it in there
2006-05-24 [Zab]: It's easy to miss :)
2006-05-24 [Mataza_71191]: any way thank you thank you thank you *bows down*
2006-06-03 [FINAL FANTASY 13 TRAILER IS OUT!my page]: excuse me why in languages does it not include l33t, hacker slang or binary
2006-06-03 [someelf]: Because those arn't real languages? o.O *Blinks*
2006-06-03 [sequeena_rae]: I'm assuming that if you can speak in l33t, hacker slang or binary, you can speak english or any other universal language. So I don't really see the need of having those here.
2006-06-03 [Paz]: l33t is not a real language technically, thus it is not apart of the language listings. The only languages there are real languages used outside the computer and fantasy languages (like Qenya). l33t is an annoying chatspeak language developed by computer savy people a short while ago :/
2006-06-03 [Paz]: As sequeena said it's just a form of english (or another language). So if you use l33t you obviously speak english
2006-06-03 [sequeena_rae]: And binary is just...Numbers o.O
2006-06-03 [Paz]: A sequencing of zeros and ones >.> The computer language
2006-06-03 [sequeena_rae]: Very confusing.
2006-06-04 [FINAL FANTASY 13 TRAILER IS OUT!my page]: still i know alot of people who would like hacker slang their and the fact that not all people who speak english speak l33t and we are chatting on the net so their are reasons to have it i would like to know who speaks l33t, also they have sign language their and that is based on english.
2006-06-04 [sequeena_rae]: But how can you write a wiki of sign language? I don't get it myself. And for those who don't speak english but do speak l33t, I'm sure that their language is on here :)
2006-06-04 [Sunrose]: Sign language isn't based on English. 'They are not based on the spoken language in the country of origin; in fact their complex spatial grammars are markedly different.' http://en.wiki
2006-06-04 [Paz]: Sano if you want to 'write' l33t post on your house that you use it and then people who also use it will come :) Or create a wiki for it. You actually cannot 'speak' l33t or binary codes (unless you say 0011011 X3) so technically you can only write the language anyways.
2006-06-05 [FINAL FANTASY 13 TRAILER IS OUT!my page]: um i can speak l33t and binary XD
2006-06-05 [Paz]: (unless you say 0011011 X3) Speaking binary is not exactly speaking with words, but with numbers :/ l33t is written like so |-|3|_|_0 and is still a strange form of english
2006-06-05 [FINAL FANTASY 13 TRAILER IS OUT!my page]: really you can speak any language in l33t and it doesnt have to be in words to speak it.
2006-06-05 [Sunrose]: This discussion here is pointless: This is the help-wiki, not the suggestions-wi
2006-06-06 [FINAL FANTASY 13 TRAILER IS OUT!my page]: oh ok
2006-06-10 [FINAL FANTASY 13 TRAILER IS OUT!my page]: elfpack is down!!
2006-06-10 [someelf]: Is that the very first time EP is down? o.O
2006-06-10 [Sunrose]: No :)
2006-06-10 [someelf]: Oh okay. It was like >_> "Elfpack is down"-scream of like help this has never happend before XD
2006-06-10 [someelf]: okay o.o
2006-07-01 [immortal daydreams.]: how do i change the stylesheet?
2006-07-01 [Paz]: Go to "Change Your Personal" Data and scroll down to the slot that reads "index.css" (just above your name). Click the grey arrow next to it and pick a stylesheet to use ;)
2006-07-01 [nokaredes]: Click "Your House" then "Change personal data" then use the drop down menu under "Stylesheet to use" :)
2006-07-03 [Paz]: Haha XD
2006-07-07 [immortal daydreams.]: oh, okay, thanks. how long does it take to accept someone to ET? My boyfriend applied but he hasn't gotten answered yet.
2006-07-08 [Akayume]: Gah...I can't find a thing on how to do it, so may I ask, how do you create a forum? (so can make a wiki invite only)
2006-07-08 [shotokan_gal]: I think on the wiki-page edit page there is actually a 'create a forum for this wiki page' button, if you want to do it that way. Otherwise, click the forums button, click 'more options' at the top, then scroll down to the end of the page where the form should be :)
2006-07-08 [Akayume]: oh, okay, thank you very much ^^
2006-07-08 [Paz]: [immortal daydreams.]: (from what I understand through cathug) The applications could take anywhere from a few hours to a day. It's just whenever someone authorized to handle them gets around to it. Also (I think) if it was ignored/reject
2006-07-08 [Sunrose]: There are more applications here than on Cathug though, it might take a while longer here.
2006-08-28 [Zana]: No one loves me
2006-08-31 [no123456789]: hi how can i delete my sellf from here pleaese ?
2006-08-31 [Ihsahn]: You can't, However you can delete your pictures and your description log out and never come back.
2006-09-25 [katewikc247]: How do I change my password?
2006-09-25 [Ihsahn]: Go to your house click on change personal date (it is on the right upper side of your house) and look for password and change it to your liking
2006-09-28 [blonde_babe19]: who do i contact to get a banner on my house so guys will quit mesaging me?
2006-09-28 [Sunrose]: We don't make SS-comments like that :)
2006-09-28 [Teufelsweib]: you could try to make your house less attractive for guys to message, if it's that a problem to you.
2006-10-06 [Dan_fitt]: my friend can't get on to her account because someone hacked in and changed the password,what should she do now?! who do i contact for help?
2006-11-05 [BlackDragon]: eh.. has Elftown a password check thingy? It suddenly says that my password is too common and I can't change anything my my description.
2006-11-05 [sequeena_rae]: You have to change your password, if I remember rightly, because it has been used more than three times on other accounts. You can keep your old password but add something on the end, like numbers, so it becomes more unique and stops people hacking into your account. Try looking at Passwords2 :)
2006-11-05 [BlackDragon]: I have had that password for as long as I've been here, and on other sites as well. No one has ever figured it out. Annoying. Very.
2006-11-05 [sequeena_rae]: Very, but it's to make it much safer :P
Prevention is the best cure ;)
2006-11-05 [BlackDragon]: ... Thank you for your time
2006-11-05 [sequeena_rae]: You're welcome :P I hope it helped ^^
2006-11-05 [BlackDragon]: um.. no it didn't. Just made me angry.
2006-11-05 [BlackDragon]: I don't think it would help. Always worth a try though. Thought it would be better to ask here.
2006-11-05 [sequeena_rae]: Of course, someone will probably come along and give you a much better answer than I did
2006-11-05 [BlackDragon]: Just what I thought...
2006-11-05 [sequeena_rae]: See? Better answers :P
2006-11-05 [BlackDragon]: Yes. That really cheers me up..
2006-11-11 [Teufelsweib]: come on now, it's for your own bestwill. I also appeared to have a too common password, though it's the one that I use practically everywhere. I also have a new one, but it's better this way, less chance of being hacked ;)
2006-11-11 [Sunrose]: Ehm All...'bestwil
2006-11-11 [Teufelsweib]: they also use it in English...
or there are a lot of other dutch people who speak english and make the same mistake :P
2006-11-11 [True, plain and simple]: It typically goes "it's for your own good". "Bestwill" isn't an English word. :P
2006-11-11 [Teufelsweib]: hmmm... though I swear I heard it more often said by people :/
perhaps an american slang? I don't know.
2006-11-11 [True, plain and simple]: I've never heard it used, but that could just be me.
2006-11-15 [Paz]: "Bestwill" isn't used over here even in slang. You may run into a couple people with troubled grammar who'd use it but not usually :P We say "good will" and "in your best interests" though.
Or as True said "for your own good" :)
2006-11-15 [Teufelsweib]: hmmm... then it must be me :) and a couple of weird sites found with google.
2006-11-20 [ElfBabyGirl4U]: I would like to know how to delete on of my pic's. Its old and I would like to exchange it for another one. But when I go to delete it, its not on my list of photos.... Whats wrong with it??
2006-11-20 [Sunrose]: If you want to exchange it for a new image, you can just upload the new image and it will replace the old one :)
2006-12-21 [Just.Kate]: -salutes- Kate-monster, reporting for guidey-type like slave labor. Got questions? Ask away! Whee!
2006-12-28 [dew_farie]: I am looking for a guide on how to make transparent GIF's, where is that page? I cant find it.
2006-12-29 [dew_farie]: thanks
2007-02-22 [Lady Lucifer]: I have a question. I don't want anyone to contact the guards on my half "nudity" account for a picture. How do i get a sign saying "NUDITY"?
2007-03-28 [~*♥ CoUnTrY gRl 2009♥*~]: ummm wat do i do i dont understand
2007-03-28 [Paz]: Don't understand what? Specify :P
If you're having trouble with elftown see some of the links on this wiki and they'll help you out.
2007-03-29 [wolfybitch]: ???? why is it that when you block someone they can still see your page and try to message you. the only thing that gets blocked is the message. they don't even know you blocked them.
2007-03-30 [Teufelsweib]: and what's your trouble? you don't get the messages they send you, so they won't bother you with that.
2007-04-18 [wolfybitch]: yea but they can still view my page. they can post messages on my wikis. and they have no clue that they are blocked. only that I'm not answering my messages.
2007-04-20 [dragonflye]: Well you can create wiki's viewable only in a private forum that this person can't get too. Other than that, there isn't much else that can be done.
2007-04-23 [Draxx_Taldoran]: Hi,I need some help, My Fiance is Trying to get back into her account DraxxlilAngel and she puts it in to forgot my password and it tells her there is no Email address on this Profile, what can she do? she dont know her password so she cant get into it can you please help. if someone knows how to help us can you please message me personaly thank you so much
2007-05-19 [windgirl]: Hey I know someone who wants to join elftown, but they can't find the new user thing and I was trying to find it for them, but I couldn't either. So I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to get to it so I can tell them?
2007-05-19 [Teufelsweib]: on the entrance screen "register a new user" ;) it's a little button, look good! I had trouble finding it too.
2007-07-07 [Lin-tastic]: If we're looking for a member of the crew, but do not know where to look, where should we go to find one?
