Are you fascinated by history, real or that of Middle-Earth? Are you in love with the Silmarillion?
Do you love to play games, simple and those that challenge the mind?
Can we find you in a quiet corner with your nose in a wonderful tale? or lost in contemplation as you dream your next chapter, poem or work of art?
Do you enjoy a good discussion? Here in the Realm of Vaire, our discussions range here and there - through Middle Earth and beyond....where ever your imagination can take you.
Do you love contests and projects?
Are you ready to join the battle of Good vs. Evil? It lies at the core of all that is Tolkien. So come and have your say...
The weavers of Vaire are eagerly awaiting your arrival.
To show which Realm you are a part of, you may do ONE of the following: -Include the Realm of Vairë insignia in your signature file OR -Mention in your signature file that you are a member of the Realm of Vairë You may NOT do both. This is the Insignia of the Realm of Vairë:
To display this insignia in you signature, simply copy and paste the following into your sig: [img]http://www.councilofelrond.com/images/members/sil.gif[/img]
What we are striving toward is the good of the Council of Elrond. Realms are meant to provide a sense of community, build interaction between people with similar interests, and to just have fun. In that spirit, there will be no aggressive or untoward competitiveness between Realms, name calling, or otherwise inappropriate or divisive behavior allowed. The realms are intended to build friendships, not to divide the people of the Council.
When joining a realm you are expected to be an active part of that realm and participate in some of the realms activities and discussions.
All normal site and forum rules apply to the Realms. Anyone found breaking the aforementioned rules will face the possibility of being kicked out of their Realm. The following actions can get you kicked out of a Realm:
Breaking the rules on regular basis.
Starting a fight, either with internal Realm members, or members of another Realm.
Being rude or offensive to any other Realm member.
Ignoring requests to follow the rules
Anything else that might disrupt the Realm environment or make other members feel uncomfortable. The Admin of the Realms makes the final decision about kicking people from the Realm. And lastly, use your common sense and courtesy. You know what is polite and acceptable and what is not.
Look around a bit before you decide which Realm you'd feel most at home in.
There are two leaders underneath the Admin of the Realm. One is appointed, one is elected, and both serve 3 month terms. They may not serve more than 2 total terms. Leaders may be removed at the behest of the Admin for the following reasons:
Neglecting their duties.
Not getting things done in a timely fashion.
Trying to take the Realm into a place not consistent with its purpose.
Bragging about their 'leader' status.
Giving special treatment to their friends.
Discouraging members from joining other realms. As a Realm leader they should be an example of working 'together' with realms, and they should be people with the attitude of "the good of the Council" at all times.
