TORC Trivia!

Postby Wandering but not lost » Tue Oct 03, 2006 1:27 am

I dont know if I've seen one of these threads before, surprisingly. With all the trivia threads, I am sure there has been one in the past... I couldnt find one though with the search (I miss the old search engines...)



Anyway, here is how this will work. Ask a trivia question in Bold.

***All trivia questions must be related to TORC in some way. They can be about specific posters (maybe a nickname), specific threads (which White Council Awards has Wandering but not Lost won? Answer: none :-( ), site history (how many versions has the MB been through?), or anything else deemed pertinent to the forums.

The first person to answer it correctly gets to ask the next question.






The first question, to start things off:

Who was the first person to reach 1000 posts on the message board?

Was it Strider? Or perhaps Barkeep?

I don't have a very accurate memory of my lurking days before I joined.

How would we find out these things or do people only know if they were there at the time? :)

Innkeeper is the correct answer :)

As for finding out the answers, you could probably do a search of the forums. Not all of the questions have to deal with older stuff, either.

Drogo, care to ask a question or does someone else wanna give it a shot?

Its from a Phish song about some magic world where lizards are taught by the Helping Friendly book?

Correct? (I did a google search and that is the best I could come up with)



If its correct, I already asked a question so I'll let whoever else wants to ask a question. :-D This is a chance for a newer poster to think of something to ask perhaps :)

Isaiah's name was this: !ISAIAH!

I remember the race to 1,000, but I didn't recall the winner ;).

I don't know where Luthien is from (for some reason, the answer "Doriath" came to mind :P)

Not the UK.....the original Luthien (Class of '99) is the only (or at least only known) resident of this country.....

Yes, Hunter is right, so Hunter, you can ask the next Question. :)

I hope things are going ok for both Luthien and Grey Pilgrim.

Innkeeper was prominent in the ancient days, joined in October 1999. He's 13th on the memberlist now (discounting a couple who are there twice....)

There was a race to 1000, though I can't remember who he raced against. Seemed like a huge count. But, he quit after 1320....hasn't been back since 2002. :(

Do we still do the countdown in this place?

If the poster whose turn is it hasnt replied in 24hours, we start a countdown from 5 to 1, and whoever posts '1' gets to post the next question in the same post.

I'll start anyway
