It's Party Time... Founders Day Cometh! Can't Post

I know it's a bit early, but time flies when TORnsibs are planning a PARTY for our very own Holiday :D

We will be celebrating our 18th TORniversary and Founders Day on Wednesday, April 26th! EIGHTEEN!! It's a special day when we honour and celebrate our Four Founders (Tehanu, Xoanon, Calisuri, Corvar) who gave us TheOneRing.net.

You know it's not a party without some games and activities. So if you have an idea for something that you can host/post (like a fanfic, haiku, word scramble, or another activity), please share your idea here or PM me. Then we'll strategically place them between Off Topic and Main Discussion Boards.

I'll start with a Six Subject Line Challenge created by our lovely weaver. Six subject lines are randomly selected from the TORn Boards that we'll use to create a bit of fanfic.

Watch for the pre-party action on Fiesta Friday on April 21st.

So what have you got in mind? Come on... you know you want to!! :D

How about a crazy crossover drabble? [In reply to] Can't Post

100 words exactly, introducing an unlikely place, character etc from another branch of literature or film - preferably well-known internationally, as Tornsibs come from such a wide variety of places. The emphasis could be on the humour of the situation.

*climbs up on table* Hear ye, Hear ye... [In reply to] Can't Post

HERE YE!!! :D

Founders Day is quickly approaching! LOOK! *points* It's right over there and coming in FAST!

Thanks so much to our very "game" contributors to the festivities with your GREAT ideas *high five*; but there's always room for more!

PLEASE let me know if you have a game, activity, or other creative offering you'd like to share on Founders Party Day (or 2). The more we have, the more Boards we can invade... I mean... include ;)

A day or so before Wednesday the 26th, I'll pm contributors with suggested Boards to post therein. So far we're shooting for Main, Off Topic and Feedback Discussion Boards. If you'd like to add a game (or such) on the day, keep an eye on which Board might be underused and feel free to post it there. That will help keep things from dropping off the page too quickly.

AND...AND...AND... join us this Fiesta Friday for the official send-off to our very own TORn Holiday! Feel free to put the word out to our wayward sibbies who might have fun stopping by to share in this our 18th TORniversary!!! WOW!

THANKS AGAIN TO ONE AND ALL :)


Here's what we have so far (titles and ideas in draft form)

1) Lord of the Whose Line Is It Anyway?
2) Mathom Treasure Hunt
3) Six Subject Line Challenge
4) Where's Frodo?
5) Crazy Crossover Drabbles
6) A Tree and Leaf Retrospective

This is going to be SO MUCH FUN!!!! :D *geeky hand clapping*

*raises hand* I'd like to add a challenge! [In reply to] Can't Post

I found a quiz I'd posted nearly 10 years ago, which had been inspired by - none other than weaver! It's a sort of book search, or maybe I should say, "how well do you know certain aspects of LotR"!

So I won't divulge the title here, so that no one goes looking for the answers ahead of time Angelic.

Let's just temporarily call it "LotR Book Quiz". Wink

LAST FD PARTY ANNOUNCEMENT! JOIN THE FUN! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

Greetings to one and all!

Well.... the 18th TORniversary Founders Day Party starts tomorrow! This is the final shout-out to invite you to PLEASE join us and have fun as we celebrate TORn, our Founders, and our Community :D

There will be Founders Day Party Games and Special Notices on each of these 3 Discussion Boards:

MAIN
OFF TOPIC
READING ROOM

Watch for Subject Lines that begin with a variation of **FD Party or **Founders Day Game or something like them ;)

If you find you'd like to contribute a Game or Party Favour to our Holiday Festivities, DO SO! Please feel free to post away; but be sure to put the **FD variation in your subject line so its easy to spot AND be sure to check each of the 3 Boards to see if there are already a lot of games going on. Post on the one that looks the most neglected ;) We'd like to spread the posts evenly between the 3 Boards so the games don't drop off the Board too quickly.

Thanks so much to those who have arranged a game to make this such a great day... and THANKS to those who jump in and CONTRIBUTE / PLAY / PROWL :D The whole idea is to have a great time... TORn Style!!
