    I changed it for you. Now it's rotating. Not sure how it works--if you have to save it, then upload it, or if you can just copy and paste. Copy and paste worked for me. Or maybe this is another thing New DM is going to be weird on....

    Sorry! I forgot about this, Mother! Does this work?
  4. Jason Interviewed by Narg the Trolloc

    Our very own Jason Denzel was humbled by an opportunity to speak to Narg the Trolloc, who is in charge of The Daily Trolloc, a website aflutter with all the rumors within The Wheel of Time fandom. Every current bit of information is squeezed into each edition of The Daily Trolloc, and Jason’s interview is one piece of the latest gossip. Narg’s questions range from asking about memories of Robert Jordan to more personal topics, such as Jason’s Mystic trilogy—the second due out summer 2018, the third currently being written. Jason’s account of listening to Jordan read The Path of Daggers sent shivers up my own spine. (If you haven’t heard Jordan’s voice before, it’s worth listening to this audio clip; you’ll understand what Jason meant.) My personal favorite of Narg’s questions was an optimistic look at how the Trollocs are regarded: You can keep up with Narg and his adventures by following him on Facebook or Google+.

  6. Adam Whitehead recently published this fascinating article which is a culmination of Robert Jordan's notes, interviews, blog entries, and statements to show the evolution of Jordan's ideas regarding The Wheel of Time. One of the more interesting pieces of information is how different the series initially began. Whitehead refers to Jordan's first outline as "Death Metal Wheel of Time," and "essentially George R.R. Martin on acid." This version featured plotlines full of blood, violence, and sex--very different from the wholesome series we have today. The main character Rhys al'Thor was initially the Dragon, able to enter the wolf dream, and had amazing luck. Jordan eventually split these three attributes, forming Perrin Aybara and Mat Cauthon to help the Dragon with his world-saving. And another curious fact is that Rhys eventually became Tam al'Thor, not Rand. Jordan's intention was to make the savior a middle-aged war veteran, not the young farm boy typically associated with epic fantasy. And that's just the tip of the iceberg! Whitehead details so many characters as they were melded with others or split into two. There's also a lot about worldbuilding and the different cultures that make up The Wheel of Time. The time and effort needed by Whitehead to sift through all this information and make sense of the details is amazing! Even more so is Jordan himself, for allowing all of this to brew in his imagination. Check out Whitehead's complete article here.

    I believe you! I’ll have it count toward your Hobby Challenge!

    How's this? I can get them both added to a rotation if you like it.

    Here's a first attempt. What do you think?

  11. Rafe Judkins, the writer and showrunner for a potential Wheel of Time television series sent out a tweet earlier this week showing off his worn copies of the first three novels. Many have speculated that this means Judkins is starting to work on a script for the show. Adam Whitehead sums up the current rights and details of the show on his website, stating : We are all very anxious to see the show find a home, and having a fan at the helm definitely gives me hope!

  13. Beginner Challenges

    Level 2: Beginner Challenges: To move up from a Tuatha'an to a Master, you much complete three Level 2 challenges. These will be updated every month, or so, so if none of these strike your fancy, you're more than welcome to wait for the next list. You may complete up to three Beginner Challenges a month (you may do more but they will not count towards your Rank). Each challenge completed must be original, new works. We don't want you using things that you've already completed, or worse, to take someone else's creation. This is all for fun, but part of the point is to push yourself, and to express yourself. Once your challenge is completed, you can post a thread about it in the appropriate Wagon (if you've done a garden, it would go in the Hobby; if you wrote a short story, it would go in the Writers; if you knitted something, it would go in the Crafters). When the thread has been created, post in your progress thread on the Campfire Board with a link to your creation. If you don't post it, we can't count it. If you have any questions about any of this, please PM Chaelca—our Watcher of the Way of the Leaf.

    Welcome to our fires! (You’re not a member yet?) *lol* Kat will be along shortly to get your permissions changed. Until then, post where you can!
  15. Offline glitches

    This happened to me as well, Cindy. I just erased the copied text and wrote what I wanted to. It didn’t inconvenience me at all.
  16. Offline glitches

    I’ve experienced this too, Elgee. I attempted to edit a post at least a dozen times. I reported it to the other admins and Jason was able to edit mine no problem. When I tried again, it worked! But then I edited another post and it didn’t work again. I’m finding that editing a post in small batches (yes, this is a pain in the butt to do) has worked better. For example, I’d edit the first paragraph and save. Re-enter and edit the second paragraph. My success rate was much higher.
  17. Offline glitches

    Got it!
  18. Offline glitches

    Hmmm, just looked at it through non-admin settings and you don't have that same option. I can manually change yours, Gud, and yours too, Cindy, if you let me know what it needs to be.
  19. Offline glitches

    I toggled that Oscar. See if that fixes anything on your end. Gudrean, you can change your display name. At the top right corner, click on your name, then "Account Settings." From there, on the left side, select "Display Name." You can change it up to 3 times in a 30-day period. Let me know if that solves the issue.
  20. It says offline

    I think this is an issue between user name and displayed name. It has been brought to our attention and we're looking into why this happened.
  21. Welcome Back

    Ithi, have you seen this? At the top Home tab, you can select "unread content." From there, you can narrow what you're looking for, to topics, content you follow, etc. Select what you want to view then hit "Save as new stream." I'm still learning all this too, so that might not be the right solution.
  22. Welcome Back

    People should be trickling back now.... Hopefully.
  23. It says offline

    Hi Ithi! I think the lag is something that's being worked on. The old site is STILL being archived or transferred or whatever it is that it does. It should improve once everything is finished. If not, please let us know so we can address it!
  24. It says offline

    *lol* The site is still offline, Cindy. It's not viewable to the public, only certain members. We are still waiting for the rest of the upgrade to be completed before it goes online for realsies.
  25. Alan Romanczuk Retires from Team Jordan

    The announcement of Alan Romanczuk's retirement from Team Jordan was released earlier today from the official Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time Google+ page.
