    Do you know when we should expect a reply about the jobs?

    Accounts that were registered more then two months ago and have not been activated have been deleted!

  • Bob

    I’m currently looking in to why the comments number does not match up with the actual number of comments.

    I counted, too. It doesn’t match up! 🙁

    UPDATE 1: The page isn’t displaying all of the comments…

    UPDATE 2: Fixed! One number was incorrect in the code. Ugh!

  • Faolins

    There’s two pages Glorfindel . And maybe they get rid of the oldest one

  • Daniel

    i couldn’t decide where to post this so i just posted here.

    I really miss the “Number of Shur’tugals Online” thing @ the bottom of the page. is tht comin back any time soon?

  • Glorfindel

    I don’t get this. I counted and there are only 35 comments, but the thing says 60. what’s going on? And there are twenty five comments on page one. And why does page one stay the same amount of comments (the 25) and the second page, which is the old page, has the remaining number? Just curious.

  • feanarang

    Glorfindel: shurty staff said there was going to be 20 comments per page. I like the newest page being page 1 (with the newest comment at the top). that way you don’t have to scroll through all the comments of any page! (except the newest one if you want to comment).

  • Glorfindel

    Also, I think it’s interesting how the new page is always page one, if that makes any sense at all. Shouldn’t it be the other way around? And shouldn’t this page have seven, and the previous one have fifty? Not criticizing, just curious, because I’m bored.

  • Glorfindel

    I thought that there were going to be 100 comments per page? Did I hear this somewhere? or is it a figment of my imagination?

  • feanarang

    Robert, my internet explorer says that there’s an Object Required error on line 117, char 2. I looked at the source code, and line 117 is blank… but appears that it should be that way. anywho, just a heads-up. it’s obviously nothing major, b/c everything on the site works for me.

  • Daniel

    so is lytherus gonna have the color scheme it has now wen it goes live?

  • Evarinya

    Haha

  • Faolins

    Oh ok made up. Good name though!

  • feanarang

    i think lytherus is actually a latin word…though i don’t know what it means. but i could be wrong on that as well.

  • Evarinya

    It is?? Does it mean anything?

  • Chris

    Lytherus is just some made up word.

  • Trianna

    Well, I would like to review movies, but usually when I talk about movies, nobody has any idea what I’m talking about…

  • Evarinya

    YAYAYAYAYA!!!!!! 😛 sorry haha cant wait for lythirus! (msp)

  • Faolins

    woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    P.S: Thanks 🙂

  • Daniel

  • Faolins

    Yeah hopefully

  • Daniel

  • Faolins

    They would 🙂

    Sorry Mike

  • Daniel

    i cant decide wut job to apply for…
    i dont know if ppl wud like any blogs i wrote…

    hey faolin check your email.

  • Faolins

    Yeah it does. Good name 🙂

  • Daniel

    i think ive heard that name somewhere else before. it sounds like a mix between a gryphon and an elf.

  • Glorfindel

    Yeah, where did the word “Lytherus” come from?

  • Faolins

    Thanks Evarinya 🙂 Yep I have tried making a new account 🙁 still wont work !

    I hope we get some news soon 🙂

    Random question , but why Lytherus ? What gave you that idea ?

  • Evarinya

    I wonder what news we will get next! Hopefully sometime soon! Do you guys know if we will be getting any?

    P.S Faolin have you tried making a new account?

  • Evarinya

    Sorry Mike! wont happen again!

    dont worry Faolin we will get it workin for you 🙂

    cant wait for the other site to come out!

  • Faolins

    Sorry Mike my bad , couldn’t get to Dan otherwise . Still wont work 🙁

    Wont happen again

  • feanarang

    hey, suggestion: it would be more convenient (in my opinion) to have the text box where one types one’s comment before the list of comments. that way anyone wanting to post a quick reply to a news story wouldn’t have to scroll past 20 comments and then comment. just a thought.

  • Glorfindel

    Heh, heh. Sorry Mike, that was mostly my bad. I was bored. Won’t happen again.

  • Daniel

    sorry mike… that was the only way i could contact faolins. wont happen again

    I rly dont know what job i want to apply for…

  • Mike

    I just want to remind everyone that the news comments are not a chat room or way for personal communication for off-topic things. I just had to delete 10 comments that were conversations between people regarding other websites or just general spam. Please use IM or email for that stuff.

  • Glorfindel

    Was “Bookman” a comments moderator? And is the moderator’s job just to ban people? Because I’ll bet I could do that really well, laugh out loud.

  • Saphira

    i am not going to be able to apply for a job because i am 16 so i have to get my dads approval and he said i can get a job with shurtugal 🙁 because i read to many fantasy and scifi books already. And if i got a job with shurtugal then i would be reading even more of them.

  • Grace

    arkitekt – There is no fixed number of places available.

    Faolins – your question about Lytherus was answered earlier by Chris.

  • arkitekt

    how many people will be hired?

  • feanarang

    i’m interested, i’d be good at book reviews…but too busy right now.

  • Evarinya

    Oh I wish I could! but.. I am wayyy too busy :/

  • Chris

    Any job openings are posted on the application page.

  • Saphira

    hey chris does that mean that there is a position open for comment moderators?

  • Chris

    Some staffers have their stuff in blue. It’s not just comment moderators. We don’t actually have a comment moderator at this point. The ones you see in blue right now are the higher up people on staff.

  • Glorfindel

    Ohhh. So only commments moderators have their post’s in blue?

  • Trianna

    lol. I’m definately considering it, but with midterms and everything else that I have going on right now, I might have to wait a month or two.

  • Chris

    Yes, there is just a reviewer job. Apply.
    Yes, we need someone to write the column on the cast. Apply.

  • Trianna

    …Oh, and unlike most other teens, I consider more than. “He’s cute. He was poerfect for the part!” or “ARYA HAS BLACK HAIR! SHE HAS BLONDE HAIR! SHE IS AWFUL!!!!!!”

  • Trianna

    I am seriously considering applying for column writer. The Eragon movie cast thing is what perked my interest. I loooooooooooooove critiquing actors! The only downside is that I could easily get carried away and start nit-picking. lol

  • Saphira

    Grace or Chris do you know if there is a job where i could do mostly book/movie reviews?

  • Chris

    It won’t be too much longer. We’re just finishing up the design…

  • Faolins

    Oh goood more news 🙂

    Cool , jobs 🙂 not sure I would really fit in though 😛 .

    DO you know when Lytherus is up ? No rush 🙂

  • Chris

    There we go

  • Grace

    Oh dear, Chris got there before me :(.

  • Grace

    Saphira – this and that. I used to be a content worker but now I deal with feedback and help with the columns. About your second comment: just go ahead and apply for a job if you want one. It is by no means necessary to be able to travel and do interviews.

    Glorfindel – some of us have met, some of us haven’t (I haven’t). Mostly over the internet anyway. My name should be in blue soon 😛 (besides, not all staff are comments moderators).

  • Chris

    Grace and I are in the same job position right now. We just haven’t gotten her a staff account yet on this new comment system.

    Some of us have met in real life. Most business takes place via online communication. Sometimes we use the phone, but not too often.

  • Daniel

    theres always skype and email

  • Saphira

    hey grace i went to the about us page and saw your pic. its a good one! anyway i would love to get a job working for shurtugal but i don’t have that much experience and i cant really travel and go places to interview people or anything.

  • Glorfindel

    Grace, question. If you are a staff member, why isn’t your comment in blue?

  • Glorfindel

    So have all of you staff met? Or do you just contact and interview by instant message and email?

  • Glorfindel

    Cool, thanks Grace. I totally would, if I had any experience, lol.

  • Saphira

    sounds like a super cool job considering i love to write. Grace what kind of work do you do for shurtugal?

  • Grace

    Glorfindel – I’m one of the staff and I am in full-time education (9 to 5 everyday) and I work on Saturdays. It just takes a few hours every week. Having half an hour to an hour everyday or every other day and a few hours over the weekend is all it takes.

    Daniel – Lytherus isn’t up yet : ).

  • Daniel

    so lytherus is up? i cant check on this school computer… more jobs, eh? kewl

  • Glorfindel

    Wow cool. Unfortunately, I don’t have time or experienced. How do you do this unless you have super rich parents and never need to go to school, or work? I mean, if it takes so much time and dedication, when do you have time to work? Just curious. Thanks so much for the work that you have put into this guys! I appreciate it
