Man/Woman of April

Postby Ugluk » Sun Apr 01, 2007 9:17 am

April. April 1st, specifically. I thought about perhaps cooking up some sort of practical joke where I would tearfully inform you all that I was emailed by the mods and informed that this game had gone on long enough and it was time to stop, and that last month was the final month. Then I realized that if I did that, it would probably mean that some of you would jot of infuriated emails to the moderators and probably cause a great deal of hoopla. This made me want to do it even more, but in the end, good sense prevailed.


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 Rosie because she 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 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
January '07 Maedhros
February '07 Ugluk
March '07 Rosie


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.

Well, I promised I'd do it, so I'll start out April with a vote for Arwen.

Ugluk, it's probably a good thing that reason prevailed. I'd hate to see you kicked off the boards for something like that.

I think it's high time someone from The Hobbit won, so I'm going to cast a vote for our very own Hobbit of choice, Bilbo Baggins himself!

Arwen, because even a boring, sit at home, do-nothing, pointy-eared immortal elf-princess should have her day. I suddenly feel sick :(

Wow, I just keep getting sucked away from here..... Since Ive been lost for so long, I think today's vote needs to go to Gandalf because he is good at wandering, though he usually knows where he's going.....
