Seems like this would be a good one for Tooks. She remembers all the MoME. I only got involved a few years ago, but if Tooks doesn't show up and guess, I will rummage through the threads to find it.



Edited:

WOW I thought to start looking through MoME for this answer and the first four MoME's are HUGE...two over 60 pages. The last two only got around 6 pages, this year? 3. My how things have changed.

I don't have time to go through all those years of posts. So maybe we can herd Tooks this way.

Hm ... I never followed MoME.
I know some personalities that may have gone for it though. ;)

Haaaaaa hahahahahaha . . . *wipes eyes*

This must have been before the Scribe started tormenting Eomer . . . he got his face cheeks covered with red lipstick kisses but I don't recall anyone attempting to adorn his nether cheeks with artwork . . . ;)

Hmmmmmm . . .

Oh, and as far as I know, the "Mistress" Archer is Canamarth . . . Bardy is just known as the "Archer" . . . ;)

Either way, I really wish we'd see more of them both more often . . . )

I guess people think that they need a hint? :)

Well, to limit the search: It happened before I started MCing MoME. :D

Indeed, it happened before I was taking part in MoME as well. And the first three years are up to 60 pages to search through. YIKES.

OK: This character wasn't the winner that year, but participated again later, and then he won the competition.

That should narrow the search quite a lot.

Nope, not Hue. The character in question is a contestant, not a sponsor.

That is easier than. I just checked the first page of the MoME OOC and there is a list of all winners.

So now it is one of 4 (I was a part of the last 4 and don't recall the line and you said that they didn't win the year prior) and I will start with Irolas.

Bingo. :thumbsup: He got the smiley face in the third MoME, and won the following year.

So, go ahead.

Okay.

What poster drew and posted a TORC poster depicting many users drawn by what their names sounded like or traits their TORC personality possessed?

I have a vague memory of something like that (unless it's something completely different I'm remembering - LOL :D ) - so it must have been when I first started to branch out from books (I think this was in Talk, but might have been Movies, too) - so around 2004? But I wouldn't even know where to look for it. :D
How far off is that so far? :D

I think it was around 2003 or 4. The rendition had its own thread in Talk as I recall.

I remember this so well. Without any research I can say Rodia / Madzia drew and posted the poster.

I was depicted as a toy "big rig". Driving a full size one was my occupation at the time. The poster was ( and remains ) glorious. I am pretty sure I still have a copy of it saved on my PC.

Ding Ding!! You got it Efff Teee. I remember it SO well. I used to have it saved on a PC, but that was about three laptops ago now. ;) I was featured as Mz Kleo, she could tell you your future by what your favorite ice cream was. That was a very old thread, seems forever ago now. :D

Your go.

Ok

Which TORCer once sported a picture of "Mr. T" in his signature with the caption reading..."Don't give me no jibba jabba"?

Here are a couple of hints.

orodreth111 brought the signature ( and TORCer ) in question to my attention.

CrispyCreme complimented highly on the signature too. The signature picture ( and caption ) was deemed a TORC Classic by both.

Its good to see you too Frodo :)

Ok, this poster liked to write poems and role played on occasions. Being timid, not loads of posts but well known.

First joining in 2000, posted until 2004. Took a year out then returned in 2005 and was last at torc in Feb 2011.

On their return, the same Id was used but with a little extra added on!
