How do I change my profile picture?
Your profile picture uses an external URL. You can upload images with an image host such as imgur.com. Use the direct link for your image. Images should be 100x100 or smaller. You can use online tools such as the online image editor to crop your image.

The Dragon Language text doesn't render properly in my browser?
Thuum.org uses elements of CSS3, which may not be supported in Internet Explorer. If you have issues, refresh the page, or try a different browser.

What font do you use for the Dragon Language?
We use a modified version of the "dragon_script" font called "dragon_alphabet" and is available for download here. Letters are mapped to both the upper and lower cases. The letters "aa", "ei", "ii', "ah", "uu", "ur", "ir", "oo" and "ey" are mapped to 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9, in that order. We have also added punctuation for the comma, period, question mark, and exclamation point.

What do the ranks on the member page mean?
Whenever you post on the forums, you get "experience". Gain enough experience and you'll level up! Experience is not provided from posts in the Hearth forums. The ranks and the exp you need to reach them are:
Rank Exp
Prisoner 0
Bandit 10
Guard 30
Adventurer 60
Companion 100
Thane 150
Champion 210
Jarl 280
High King 360
Greybeard 450
Dovahkiin 550
Dovah 660
Aedra 780
These ranks are decorative only. Members of higher rank have the same priveliges as members of lower rank.

Once you attain the rank of Aedra, you will have the opportunity to reach Legendary rank. This will reset you to Prisoner and bestow you with a Legendary emblem.


What is gold and what is the Item Shop? What are they for?
You can spend gold in the Item Shop to build out your Hoard. Items are simple collectibles, with no real purpose except for fun. You can give gold or items to other members. Like experience, you can earn gold by posting on the forums, or participating in site contests.

How do I submit new words for the dictionary?
The word submission feature is no longer available. The dictionary containing fanmade words has been archived, and the current dictionary now contains only official words. See here for more details.
