2008-10-11[Serwa]: The very reason I been comin here for about 5 or 6 years already ;)
2008-10-11[Viking]: ^ Wow...someone I can't call a n00b!
2008-10-12[Serwa]: By the way, I remember seeing a page where this whole thing got explained, that it was a well, atleast some sort of, but I might be mistaken, contest and/or stuff?
There's no link on this page to the page I think to have seen anyways. If you understand what I mean.
Yes. Waka has spoken. Thank you.
2008-10-12[Serwa]: Well, basicly the page which links to this page,
which this page aint linking back to.
Lets say you have one wiki page which is called 'CONTEST ANNOUNCEMENT' and there's always a link on that page to 'CONTEST ENTRIES' and then I use Elftown because would be the entries, and im wondering where the contest announcement page is :)
2008-10-12[Jeccabee]: I didnt know this was a contest...I was invited here.
2008-10-12[Serwa]: Yea, I entered my line when you invited me to it,
But some day or two before that I stumbled on to the page i'm asking for perchance!
Unless I been hallucinating again, i'm pretty sure this was a "contest" of some sort :)
Can Hedda confirm this, or is this myth busted?
2008-10-12[Aradon Templar]: You aren't thinking of the Colour contest, are you? It's a similar contest just asking for entries of colour descriptions, and if I recall, looks a bit similar to this page.
2008-10-13[Hedda]: [Serwa]: Maybe you pressed that "Mood"-button to the right that lists your friends' moods?
2008-10-13[Hedda]: EH, no. I read wrong now. Yes, we had some sort of Elftown description contest, I think.
2008-10-14[Serwa]: Yarp! That's the one I meant!
As said, I seen that page in a glimpse 2 days before I got invited onto this wiki, easy to mix up ;)
Thanks for clearing it out!
2008-10-15[Aradon Templar]: Demona, Elftown has had its own troubles with 'hacking' too. Yes Mort, I'm looking at you :P
2008-10-15[Chimes]: Mort? Surely not! :P Never heard of such a thing! *coughs profusely*
2008-10-15[Aradon Templar]: Chimes, I have to ask, and perhaps I would find the answer more swiftly by checking the Elftown names page, but you aren't here to contaminate all magic and bring about an end to life as we know it, are you? :P (Reference to a book, Sword of Truth series by Goodkind)
2008-10-15[Kay-chan]: That sounds like my typical Friday night.
2008-10-15[Chimes]: Well, I didn't want to say anything but... XD (I have never heard of it)
2008-10-15[Aradon Templar]: :D I must recommend the series to any fantasy lover, though I'll give fair warning that they're fairly lengthy and gripping in such a manner that, even if you manage to put the book down for this 'real life' thing people talk about, you'll be a mental wreck until the book resolves itself. But it's my personal favorite.
2008-10-15[Chimes]: I may have to read it then. I assume my username is mentioned?
2008-10-15[Aradon Templar]: The chimes are a plot development later in the series, I think around book for, Temple of the Winds. They're somewhat minor, but at the same time they manage to threaten the world :P
2008-10-15[Chimes]: Wow, I feel... rather evil, actually, which is strange seeing as I wouldn't hurt a fly. XD
