***It's Founders' Day - Learn Now the Lore of the TORnStaff Creatures! Can't Post

(With all due apologies to Treebeard and his Lore of the Living Creatures! Wink)

Learn now the Lore of the TORnStaff Creatures!

First name the Four, the Founders of TORn:

Xoanon the Webmaker, Finder of News,
..Go-between, Interviewer, who brings them all together;

Tehanu the Java-lover, player of cellos,
..Ultimate Spy and first link to the Movies;

Corvar the computer-master, Keeper of the Servers,
..Maintainer of the bytes which contain our very words;

Calisuri the Uninhibited, Designer of the Site,
..Tamer of pixels and developer of pages.

Next name the Senior Staff, overseers of human interface:

Altaira the Superuser, who watches over us all,
..Fiesta Bar-mistress and bane of all Trolls;

MrCere the SandWitch King, who posts from the shower,
..Gatherer and disseminator of News old and new;

Jincey, editor, motherly towards all,
..Proprietress of Barliman's and welcomer of guests ;

Demosthenes, Barliman server of ales,
..Attender of events and reporter of same;

maegwen, Barliman barmaid gregarious,
..Designer and assembler of moots large and small.

Then name the Admins, safe-keepers of Message Boards:

Ataahua the humorous, instigator of Conspiracies;

BG, beloved programmer of these New Boards;

Dernwyn the librarian, Bored of the Rings quoter;

Draupne the horse-lover, speaker of strange languages;

Earl the musician, church-organ virtuoso;

Eledhwen the well-travelled, with "Dreamy Aspirations";

Entmaiden the organizer, business-account genius;

Hengist the sword-wielder, gentleman and scholar;

Inferno the Computer Wizard, solver of problems;

Kimi the book-lover, and writer of stories;

Kyriel the travel agent for "Middle-Earth Tours";

Rosie-with-the-Ribbons, of the now-famous "I Heart Hot Dwarves" T-shirt;

Silverlode the witty and lover of history.

And those who for long kept Barli's doors open wide:

IRC ops Arathorn, who we still meet at Moots;

and CharlieMS, oft-unnoticed but essential.

And we shall not forget those who have sailed West, forever in our hearts: Balin, moderator and moot-maker!

(As with all lists, there will be some creatures who, like the hobbits, may have not yet been noticed; please mention them, so that they may be included in the List!)


"I desired dragons with a profound desire"

this is a fun read and nice tribute every year... [In reply to] Can't Post

And nice to see Balin's name there and remember him, as always.

And hey, what about adding folks like Kel, Gramma and Magpie and other staffers who do much behind the scenes? I just realized they should be on there, too. Tell you what, let's do this again next year --- if you act now, you can reserve a bigger space on the boards to accommodate a longer list, ha!

Thanks for writing and reprising it again, go you!
