Maia, maia!

Hello all! I am now the Maia of sorting_realm. I used to be a Valar, but had to quit because of real life, but that is boring. :P

This community is purely for fun as all of the other communities are. Think of it as an elaborated "What's My Middle-earth Race?" quiz. Fill out an application and see what the members sort you as! You'll get a spiffy cool banner to post in your journal(made by shieldmaidenjen) or where ever and you get access to shire_realm, eressea_realm khazad_realm, and numenor_realm, beleriand_realm where only people sorted into those races get to chat and such.

All of the other communities are open membership and this one is just for giggles.

Each Wednesday I will post the results of the of your application. If you find that you are tied between two races, a Maia from each Race will ask you questions to determine which Race you are, and Valar pick.

I may get to be making some icons for the people who want them who get sorted, but I need a picture of a woman dwarf!

:) Just wondering: were you my secret santa? XD Or not? [Or if you don't remember that is perfectly alright XD]

Now that I remember...I didn't particapte. I'll find out who did it for who and will post it!

Ah, okay. ^^ I see. :) Sankyuu! :)

I can't find it in any of my notes or e-mails. I have the e-mails sent out to people, but I don't know who I sent them to.

Aww, that stinks! I know shieldmaidenjen posted a post on it, asking people to say who they were Secret Santas for, but not many people replied. ^^

I made the current banners, but you are welcome to use whatever you like. If you'd like to make new ones or have several sets for people to choose from, that would be cool too. And I think icons are an excellent idea.

A new Maia ?! Nice.

Shall we call you Elgato the grey ?

What do you think about my idea of writing a collective race guide to help in the sorting process ? I started the idea because I was tired of seing people automatically sorting people who show some artistic skills and love of nature into the elven realm (even if they are very emotional and naive like hobbits)

Maybe we could also add some questions like "what can you say about food and drinks". Or "what's your definition of a a successful life"... Just to name a few possible exemples.

I wish not to be grey at this age. ;) Just call me EG(I do on my site).

What do you think about my idea of writing a collective race guide to help in the sorting process ?

Wonderful idea! I think it will be interesting. Maybe a few polls on what people think how Races act will help, and we could always look at ARDA for help. Wh

I did not write the sorting application(shieldmaidenjen did), we just created the communities together. If she decides to put me on the mod squad for this community, I'll friends lock your posts about Races, so people getting sorted won't know what to write.
wolfgangfener at 2007-04-13 16:32 (UTC) (Link)
Good idea. Most people already have a good idea of what to write to end up in the race of their choice but it remains a good idea not to publish all our little sorting secrets ;-).

Actually I was going to say that you can change up the application as much as you'd like. I think we do need questions like wolfgangfener suggested so some changes would be great. :D I'll make sure you've got full control over this community so you can do whatever you'd like. *goes off to check settings*

You should be getting an invitation to the community in your email. :) I might have sent it twice because I thought I sent one yesterday so sorry if I did! If you don't get the email, join this community and I'll deal with it from there.

I had to join.

You are now completely a mod/maintainer! :D Change up as many settings as you like - if you want to accept the submissions through email or anything like that, go for it.

Okay. ;)

Am very glad you are back - when we first started this, I liked the sound of it but, since I'm not a member of hogwarts_online, I really have had no idea what to do about some things. So yay for returning! You can whip this place back into shape. :D
