Man/Woman/Acceptable Substitute of September

Postby Ugluk » Fri Sep 01, 2006 8:06 am

Ahhh, September. Home of a certain pair of birthdays and plenty of sleep. (Hence: Wake me up when September ends). It's also a fine month to spend balancing TORC and school, and what better way to keep things balanced then voting an even 30 days?


Rules:

1) You can only vote once a day *
2) You can't vote for the same person two days in a row **
3) You must state why you voted for the person
4) Person must be Lord of the Rings/Tolkien related
5) Votes must be in bold.
6) You can't vote for Boromir because he won last month

* This applies to whatever time zone you are in. Even if the TORC time works out so according to it you're posting within the same day, it doesn't matter. But don't abuse your authority.
** This means you may not vote for the same person consecutively. If you vote for Frodo Monday and do not vote at all Tuesday, than you cannot vote for Frodo on Wednesday.


Due to popular request, this is the list of the previous winners. As each month passes, we will add the next winner to it:

June '03 Haldir
July '03 Orophin
August '03 Legolas
September '03 Frodo
October '03 Sam
November '03 Beren
December '03 Faramir
January '04 Pippin
February '04 Faramir
March '04 Eowyn
April '04 Aragorn
May '04 Boromir
June '04 Eomer
July '04 Faramir
August '04 Theodred
September '04 Faramir
October '04 Merry
November '04 Legolas
December '04 Faramir
January '05 Turin
February '05 Eowyn
March '05 Faramir
April '05 Gandalf
May '05 Faramir
June '05 Gimli
July '05 Faramir
Augest '05 Legolas
September '05 Faramir
October '05 Galadriel
November '05 Frodo
December '05 Faramir
January '06 Tolkien
February '06 Luthien
March '06 Faramir
April '06 Aragorn
May '06 The Moth
June '06 Eomer
July '06 Faramir
August '06 Boromir


If you missed voting the first day due to time zones, you may vote twice for the missed day and the current day. This only applies for the first day of the month. If you are going to be gone for several days, you may not post multiple votes in a single post, to have them "apply" for later days. They will not be counted.

Ugluk, for future reference, "Teleporno" is Celeborn. I saw that you did not combine the votes last month (so Celeborn should have had 38, not 37). I see that Beren and Maedhros did equally well :D

My first vote goes for Frodo, because Jane Goodall named one of her chimps that :P.

Arwen, because Tolkien gave her a total of three pages in LOTR (not counting te appendixes), and that's just about what she's worth.

Maedhros because he managed to keep his trouble-maker brothers more or less (discounting the Beren and Luthien incident) under check for about 400 years. Poor guy, it must have been hard!

Maedhros, because he was in the top five last month, and as the Dispossessed heir of Feanor, one could say that he has never, ever won.

Faramir because he was tempted in the movie, but said no - which after all is more praiseworthy than not being tempted at all. ;)
