Man/Woman of January

Postby Ugluk » Mon Jan 01, 2007 6:58 pm

It's a new year, and traditionally, it's a time to make a few New Year's resolutions, like to cut back on things like chocolate and booze and cigarettes and time spent in front of the computer rotting your brain. However, we recommend just the opposite, and encourage you to post here daily, and too look upon missing a day of posting with the same attitude as stomping on a kitten: with horror.

With that in mind:


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 Faramir 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
September '06 Faramir
October '06 Celeborn
November '06 Bill the Pony
December '06 Faramir


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.

Booze and cigarettes? :nono: :puke:

I think I'll start the new year with Legolas, because he's always been my favorite character. 8)

Sorry for the lateness, folks. Bit of a post-New Year's hangover on my part. Coupled with extreme exhaustion. If you missed voting the first day, you can include the extra vote for the first day when you get on.


A vote today for Maedhros because I think it's high time the poor soul won.

Faramir AGAIN? Are you kidding me?

Humph.

Well, then, FRODO because he's MUCH better looking than some dude from Gondor.

:P

*Agrees with Ugluk*

I will cast my first vote for Maedhros, because if he does not win, he and his brothers will hunt you down!

:P

Oh, you think I'm kidding?

my first vote will be Fatty Bolger, cause he only got one vote last month, and he deserves to win.

Ugluk, because an orc has never won, and because his faithful namesake deserves a reward (and voting is cheap :wink: )

Maedhros because Mith must know it cannot be anything else ;) - that pic still has the same effect on me it ever had.

That was for you, m'dear :)

Finrod, because of all the elves, he was the only one to glimpse the necessity of Christmas, though of course he couldn't guess it would happen the way it did!

Tolkien himself because it's his birthday month, and without him I wouldn't be here.

Eowyn for killing a fell beast, something only Legolas managed to accomplish on his lonesome.

Ugluk, because I've really taken a fancy to him.

And Why do so many of the portraits of elves make them look like sulky, rebellious teenagers?

Maedhros, because he didn't win last month.

MoME 2013 results are in!

The Sons of Fëanor re-embodied in the beginning of the Fourth Age? Yes, for The Maedhros and Tygarya Saga – and, as fire-hearted as ever!

On my way to Morannon on the Walk to Rivendell and Beyond!
