An Index Thread of ‘How do I do this?’ queries on the OriginalTrilogy•com
A thread to help out some of our newer members (and also some longstanding one’s) with some of the more Frequently Asked Questions for some of the functions on the site…
If you are new to the originaltrilogy•com then the following info may also be of some assistance…
Firstly, the About and Help sections may be of interest to you regarding this site and what the OriginalTrilogy•com is about.
Secondly, the Announcements Section - including Site Rules & Guidelines, Fan Edit & Preservation Rules & FAQ, as well info for Signatures, Linking Policy for Downloads, and Plot Spoiler Policy (and much more) that may be of use too.
If you are having any issues with the site, have a question, an idea to improve the site, or would like to give some feedback - then these can be done in the Feedback Forum and General Assistance sections.
Finally, the self-explanatory An OriginalTrilogy.com timeline thread - a history of the site and why & how it came to be… contains a fair bit of additional info chronicling both the site & also numerous changes made to the Original Trilogy over time.
From the 1st February 2019 the OriginalTrilogy•com’s monthly running costs will no longer be funded by Jay (who had benevolently covered the site’s monthly overheads for nearly 16 years!) - and the site moderators are asking for donations from the community here to keep the OT•com up and running.
More information can be found in this thread - The future of OT.com - UPDATE: Please donate!
Donations (whether a one-off, occasional or a monthly contribution) can be made by clicking on the ‘Donate with PayPal’ button located at the top of this site.
