Before e-mailing the webmaster...

Please read the following answers to frequently asked questions that I get before emailing me.

  1. Can I link to your page?
    Of course! I'll even go you one better. If the page that you're linking from is related to Tim Roth, or if you run a site for an actor that has worked on a film with Tim, let me know about it, and I'll probably link back to yours.

  2. Can I use some of your pictures for a site that I'm building?
    This one tends to fall into a gray area. I don't mind when a site uses some of the pictures from this one. In fact, I'd like to think (in my warped, self-centered worldview) that this is the first place you would come to find a Tim Roth picture. However, I will request a link back to this site, or at least a mention stating where you got the pics from. Furthermore, I don't think it's fair to all the work that I do for someone to create a new, comprehensive site based solely on information garnered from this one. I love the fact that people want to celebrate the great work that Tim does, but please find your own way to do so. I don't have time to put every single thing that Tim does on this site, so there's plenty of room for other sites to step in.

  3. There is a broken link at...
    This isn't really a question, but I'm always grateful when someone points out broken links or typos to me. I don't have time to go over the pages with a fine-toothed comb, and every little bit helps. If some section of the page is not working for you I probably don't know about it, so go ahead and let me know.

  4. I like/love/hate/despise the pages!
    Again, not a question, but these types of comments are also always welcome. I may not respond to your message, but I appreciate your comments and will try to take any suggestions into account.

  5. Did you know...?
    If it's not on the page, probably not. Please send me any news tidbits or items to add to the page that you have. I did not find all of the articles and pictures on my own, and I certainly don't have the time to scour the Internet for the lastest information. Just like PBS, this site wouldn't be possible without viewers like you.

Now, for my little rant. The following questions should probably be avoided if you want to stay on my good side.

  1. Do you know where Tim Roth is right now? (aka "Is Tim in [place] now?" or "Is Tim going to be in [place] on [date]?")
    The answer to this is almost always going to be no, or I don't know. If he is filming something or if he is doing a talk somewhere the only way I have of knowing is through word of mouth (or rather, word of e-mail). If someone tells me that they spotted Tim in their hometown (or whatever) I'll post it to the page (usually in the Breaking News section). Otherwise, I don't know, and your guess is as good as mine. You can try posting the question to the Tim Talk mailing list, and other people might be able to verify his whereabouts.

  2. Can you send me a [certain] picture of Tim?
    The short answer to this is no. The longer answer is that I don't want to get into trafficking pictures all over the Internet for people, and if it's not on the pages I don't have a copy of it. If it is on the pages you can download it yourself.

  3. Was Tim in [obscure movie/TV show name]?
    I don't know. I'm not really an expert on everything Tim has done, I'm more of an archivist. If the answer is not listed in the pages (most notably the FAQ) then I probably don't know. If you find out that he was in some movie/TV show that isn't listed on the pages, feel free to e-mail me the information. Otherwise, you can try posting the request to the Tim Talk mailing list to see if anyone else knows.

  4. Where can I write to Tim?
    This question really annoys me because it's in the FAQ. Other than the Polaris Publicity info, the addresses listed are all unverified. If you have used any of the addresses and gotten a response, I'd love to know that you did and how long it took.

  5. Can Tim Roth play the piano?
    Again, I don't know why I get so many e-mails about this one because IT'S IN THE FAQ!!

  6. I'm your biggest fan!
    Not so much a question as it is a really embarrassing thing for me to read. I am not Tim Roth. I am just a fan who volunteers what little time I have to put this page together. I repeat: I am not Tim Roth.

  7. OK then, can you give me Tim Roth's e-mail address?
    Apparently I need to be more specific. I do not know Tim Roth. I have never met him. I am in no way connected to the entertainment business. Other than sending a letter to one of the addresses listed in the FAQ, I do not know how to contact Tim Roth. Of course, even if I did have his e-mail address, I wouldn't give it out to random Internet strangers and potential stalkers.

I'm sorry I have to be so ranty about this, but you would be too if your inbox was filled with the same questions over and over. Basically it all boils down to this: Everything I know about Tim is listed on the pages. There's no "secret" information that I'm hiding from you that you'll be able to get from me by asking me. I also maintain the pages in my free time, and they are not a public service, so I won't go out of my way to find the answer to your question or to look something up for you when you're capable of doing it yourself. These are just some basic ground rules that will prevent me from going crazy, and I thank you for taking the time to read them. If you still want to e-mail a grump like me, please feel free.
