2005-05-22 [Benji Madden Fan]: how do i put pictures on my description?????

2005-07-13 [zanders]: you use the tag: <IMG:image_filename>. For example: <IMG:>

2005-07-17 [Naruto-kun's Sakura-chan]: um.....what are coolpoints and anticool points?

2005-07-18 [FireGypsy]: Coolpoints is just something [Hedda] created for fun. If you think someone is cool or they are nice and such, click on their house, click coolpoints and state the reason for giving them a coolpoint. But be careful, when you give coolpoints, you get negative coolpoints, so dont give too many away. =)

2005-07-19 [Naruto-kun's Sakura-chan]: okay.thank you very much.*bows*

2005-07-19 [FireGypsy]: no problem =)

2005-07-28 [DenDen]: awww this is awesome!

2005-07-28 [FireGypsy]: isnt it =D

2005-07-30 [RabidSphinx]: meow

2005-11-06 [XsxcjadeX]: pictures?

2005-11-07 [RabidSphinx]: what sort of things?

2005-11-22 [DaLtOnL]: how do i figure out who has gave me anti cool points?

2005-11-22 [RabidSphinx]: the anti-cool points are the points you have given to other people...

2005-11-27 [artiFICIAL]: um ok how do you use your diary?

2005-11-28 [RabidSphinx]: you click on the option "diary" type in your entry, chose if you want it to be public or notified to your friends, and clcik submit. it isn't much different than sending a message

2005-12-03 [marsh_all_k]: how do u message people

2005-12-03 [RabidSphinx]: go to the person who you wish to message's house, and scroll to the near-bottom. there will be a window box where you can type a message, and then send it to them

2005-12-26 [*PrettyinPINK*]: can i change my pasword???

2005-12-26 [*PrettyinPINK*]: my bratty lil sis found out my pasword and is getting on my elfpack!

2006-01-01 [RabidSphinx]: yes. just "edit profile" and type in a new password, and then make sure you remember it

2006-01-02 [~Beautiful Vision]: hello. i know that i am not new or anything but if u watch someone's house, does that mean u know exactly wen they log on???

2006-01-02 [RabidSphinx]: if you have a relation request with someone, you will be aleted to when they sign on, off, and become idle on the right of your screen...if you are "watching" their house only, you will only be alerted (on the right of your screen) as to when they "edit" their profile, images, or diary

2006-04-30 [Froggy526]: is there a way to "join" groups?

2006-04-30 [zoloftzantac]: What groups are you talking about? Private forums and some wiki pages are kinda like groups, bu tI'm not sure what you mean.

2006-04-30 [Froggy526]: for example, the <a href=>Back Table Group</a>....Edit: oops...

2006-04-30 [zoloftzantac]: this is the way to make wiki links on EP [Back Table Group@wiki] makes Back Table Group

2006-04-30 [zoloftzantac]: but that is also a dead link, getting the name of something correct is important also, I think you wand the backtable group

2006-04-30 [Froggy526]: okay thanks! so is there a way to join the group?

2006-04-30 [zoloftzantac]: they seem to have open membership,just start hanging out there and if you want you can go to the member page and add yourself

2006-04-30 [Froggy526]: oh ok, thanks!

2006-05-11 [kittykittykitty]: I'm a little confused by these 'newbie help' pages... I was going to update some of the screenshots (the old buttons on screenshots would be more confusing for newbies), but the pages are password protected, and the owner doesn't watch them. Are they official EP pages? They don't have the banner

2006-05-11 [zoloftzantac]: Newbie help is official, tho it seems like the pages have differant owners .. I know [RabidSphinx] works here, maybe she knows the story

2006-05-11 [RabidSphinx]: i work here but do not have the paswords...i deal with questions with newbies, not the upkeep of the pages. try messaging the owner of the wiki since they are not watching it and ask them for the pasword...

2006-05-11 [kittykittykitty]: Ok... i'll get onto it :)

2006-05-12 [zoloftzantac]: I don't know why this page has a password anyways ... they should take it off if they aren't even watching it anymore ...

2006-05-12 [kittykittykitty]: I didn't really understand either... freely editable would be much better. I hope he gets back to me soon though *he's been missing for a couple of weeks* ^_^'

2006-05-12 [zoloftzantac]: who did you write to? [The Dark Lord] is the owner, he was on EP a few days ago

2006-05-12 [kittykittykitty]: oh noes! I wrote it to [Dwemer]. I assumed because he was the last to edit....

2006-05-12 [kittykittykitty]: Can you see who is the page owner? Peon Elfpackers can only look at the first version and hope ownership hasn't changed since then (at least i thought that was the only way)

2006-05-12 [zoloftzantac]: Yep, that is how I used to have to do it, I can see current page owners now tho. Maybe I should make [RabidSphinx] the owner and she can take off the password if she wants to ... since this seems to be an orphaned official page ...

2006-05-12 [RabidSphinx]: aww....poor little page...*hugs it*

2006-06-28 [//..Shelby_x]: how do i add friends plz help

2006-06-28 [FireGypsy]: When you go to someones house, you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, and on the left hand side youll see the words "type of relation" and then a selection box. Choose which relation type you would like, or you can make your own if you type it in your own under "own name of relation" and then click "suggest you should start this relation"

2006-06-28 [zoloftzantac]: this only works if that person has already sent you a message, you can not add random people

2006-06-28 [FireGypsy]: Oohh yeah i forgot about that! Well, first talk to the person and make sure they mesage you back ;)

2006-12-13 [XxSinister MorphineXx]: How do I make a link to my diary? I want to be able to make a link to put in my mood. So that you can click on it and go to my diary.

2006-12-13 [zoloftzantac]: Please don't spam the same question all over the place, [Big Brother] has already answered your question on the guards wiki page

2007-01-31 [kittykittykitty]: Regarding what you said a few comments up z, I think for official EP help pages it doesn't matter who the owner is (especially if the owner doesn't care enough to watch the page), and the wiki should be free to edit for anyone who needs to do so as long as it has somebody who is looking out for vandalism of it :) I removed the password

2007-02-01 [XxSinister MorphineXx]: How do I go about using the Elfpack Toolbar? Do I have to download something?

2007-02-01 [zoloftzantac]: The EP toolbar is the name for that thing at the top of every EP pages that has links to Mainstuff, Notes, Logout, etc. You can click Elfpack toolbar to learn more about it.

2007-02-01 [XxSinister MorphineXx]: Alright. Thanks

2007-06-18 [Shayla.]: okay i have a question
how do you get an elfpack secret message
i want one that says
i dont have IM
or MSN or messanger
please help me

2007-06-18 [FireGypsy]: You need to ask the Guards ^_^

2007-06-18 [Shayla.]: okay thanks a million

2007-06-18 [FireGypsy]: No problem!

2007-07-11 [schitzo]: how do I change my password?

2007-07-11 [FireGypsy]: Go to "your house" and then "change personal data" and you can change your password from there =)

2007-08-25 [zoloftzantac]: <3s RD

2007-08-25 [FireGypsy]: O_o

2007-09-13 [zoloftzantac]: she used to be here a lot, I thought she would respond to that if she was still watching this page ...

2007-09-17 [FireGypsy]: How cute =)

2008-02-06 [itweetinHEELS]: i could post one for Poll Usage, rather it be in wiki's, etc..

2009-06-21 [InLoveDontBothe r]: how does one change their font?

2009-10-25 [odeg]: I'm not a newbie, but I forgot how to upload pictures onto my house description. Not a wiki, but my house. T.T I feel so embarassed!

2009-10-25 [Bookwyrm]: ^_^ All you have to do is click the "Upload/delete photo" or "Upload/delete image" buttons on your house.

2010-01-10 [PsYcHoMaMi13]: i'm new to this....what does the question mark next to the name under the friend's box mean?

2010-01-24 [Bookwyrm]: It's just a help link to explain something, but I can't find it myself right now. XD

2010-08-30 [FigJewton]: How do you add people? :o
