    So, I am absolutely overwhelmed. It happens often but I do not think ever with something like this site. I have been viewing it from a distance for some time now, and decided to get into it personally. Well, now i am extremely confused. I have read the Membership Manuel, and the post about becoming a full member, yet I am still confused. How do I know about name? Or picture? The twenty-five posts seems straight forward enough, and I suppose this counts as one, but I am really lost with how to do this. Any insight is appreciated really. Anything to get rid of the confusion is as well. Thank you for your time and have a lovely day!

    Hello, Kaeinara!

    Feel free to post a new thread in the Introductions forum so we could get to know you a little bit better. No better way to start off here than by interacting with the rest of the community. :)

    As far as the name goes, you should choose for yourself a Wheel-of-Time-sounding first name and last name. Make sure it does not coincide with any actual name in Wheel of Time. That, along with the avatar (which should be 110x170 in size, which we can help you with, and should be humanoid) and the 25 posts, is the requirement for Citizenship. Once you are a Citizen, you will have access to more parts of the forum, and have more opportunity to immerse yourself here. To clarify about the avatar: there are many websites (such as deviantart.com) that you can use to browse for an image that you like that hasn't already been taken by another member (we can check that for you here). The name and the avatar are basically your choice.

    If you need any more clarification, please let me know and I will do my best to help.

    I hope to see you around here more!

    Alright, thanks much! I will make sure to post into the introduction forum and look into a picture/name. Is there some place in particular I should ask about the name and picture? Or do I just use them and you will inform me if they are taken? Thank you again for your help though!

    When you decide upon a name, you should message Sa'areah Sedai at membership@tarvalon.net She will be able to add your last name, and verify that it's all good. ^^ You can use them and we will let you know if anything needs changing.

    Also, make sure to have permission for the image you are using - if you find something pretty on deviantart.com, you can message the person and ask them if it's all right to use their work as an avatar on a forum.
