** Founders Day - Avatar Game Can't Post

Since we all have had enough of LOTR, I mean who wants to talk about strange people with pointy ears, big flying creatures, trees that can think and evil beings who want to destroy the environment.
There is a so much better movie with beautiful beings with pointy ears who fly on big creatures to protect a thinking tree against the evil enemy who wants to destroy them….. uhm, wait…. Oops, sorry, wrong Avatar Wink

I’m talking about that nice picture that shows under your name (at least, with most of us). But can you tell from just the picture who it is…..?
I’m going to reply to this post 8 times. In each reply I will put three avatars and a clue to point you in the right direction. Let’s see how many you can identify.

If you want to play, please don't put your answers in the subject line. That way others can still play without seeing the answers.


No prizes to be won, just the honour of knowing your fellow TORnadoes.

Ps1: It took a while to prepare this game. The avatars have been gathered at the end of March, some avatars might not be in use anymore, but with the clue I hope you can still figure out who’s avatar it was.
Ps2: I will post the correct answers tomorrow
Ps3: This game is mostly the work of our beloved Magpie, she only didn’t have time to host it today. So a big thank you goes to her!!!

Happy Founders Day!!

This is such an interesting game and I've racked my brains going over all the avatars you've posted. I'm going to do the quiz right now, because if I put it off for later, it'll never get done.

psst: Gimli's Box [In reply to] Can't Post

could you put your answers in the reply box and not the subject line.

For people reading in threaded mode, your subjects give away the answer.

If you catch it before your edit time elapses, you can edit the answers out of the subject and put them in the reply itself.

thanks. :-)
