Getting to know you question request thread for September - Xoanon Can't Post

Hi All

Once again I'm looking for questions to put to my latest victim interviewee, this month we're asking questions of one of our Founders, Xoanon.

So, got anything you've always wanted to ask Xo, but never dared. Maybe you just want to know a bit more about the founding and running of TORn.

Ask away!

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

What other fandoms are you interested in? [In reply to] Can't Post

Do you have a phobia about anything?

What does it take to get you on the dancefloor?

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Oooh, I've always wanted to ask this [In reply to] Can't Post

Did you get the name Xoanon from the Dr. Who episode, The Face of Evil? (That was the first episode of DW that I ever watched and I've been hooked since.) If you are a DW fan from way back, what, if anything, do you think of the new series? And of all the DW references, why choose Xoanon, the computer suffering a major identity crisis?

But if the name refers to Greek carvings, please share your interest in antiquities. And I'll pretend I didn't ask the geeky questions above. Blush

Above all, thank you for creating such a wonderful site! Smile

Founding questions..... [In reply to] Can't Post

How did you come to know the other Founders? Did you know them in RL before online? How long did it take you to get TORn up and running having come up with the idea?


Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!

What is the single best ... [In reply to] Can't Post

Experience you have had since starting TORn up? And what does it feel like to be one of the founders of the worlds most popular Tolkien sites?

Thanks!

The question which stands behind it all: [In reply to] Can't Post

How were you first introduced to Tolkien, and how did this influence your life, in the days before TORn? Smile

when you asked "Favourite spots?" did you mean on the boards or in RL?
