Welcome to TarValon.Net!

Hello there and welcome :pleased-1: I'm Arella Mathara, Mayor of TarValon.Net. I'm here as one of many resources to help you on the path to full membership at our website. If you have any questions about anything you see here, feel free to send me a PM

First thing's first: there are plenty of people here to help you if you find yourself in need of assistance or simply would like someone with whom you can chat. Please feel free to send a Private Message to any one of us with any questions or concerns (details on how to do this are below). I promise we don't bite! We would love for you to find a home here and stick around!


Saying Hello:

Post an introduction thread!

The first thing you can do to say hello is to make a new thread all about you. To do so, go back to the Introductions Forum and press the big grey button at the top that says, "+ Post New Thread." Stumped on what to write about? You can answer some or all of these questions:

  1. Who is your favourite character in The Wheel of Time and why? Please use spoiler tags if you give away any info, this is a spoiler free forum :pleased-1:
  2. How did you find TarValon.Net?
  3. What do you do? (student? job? hobbies?)
  4. Where are you from? What languages to you speak?
  5. What is your favourite book or author other than Robert Jordan and The Wheel of Time?

If you're more interested in one-on-one interactions or perhaps feeling a little bit shy, you can...

Send a message!

All members can send two kinds of messages to individuals: profile messages, which are public; and private messages, which are -- surprise! -- private.

To send a private message to someone, click on their profile picture. This will create a popup. Click "Start a conversation" in the popup. This will take you to a new page, where you can compose a message. When you're done, just click "Start a conversation," and the message will send. You can also preview the message before sending by clicking "Preview message."

If you want to send a profile message, you should also click on the individual's profile picture. However, in the popup, click "Profile page." You will see a text box on this page; compose your message, then click "Post." That's it!

Feel free to contact me, Arella Mathara, with any administrative questions or comments. You can contact me by Starting a Conversation (see above). I usually respond within a day, but sometimes life gets a little busy, so please be patient with me! :pleased-1:

There are many people to meet and also many places to explore. Your next stop should probably be the How to Become a Full Member thread if you haven't yet read it. Or maybe it's time to strike up a conversation!
