I'm sure at the time it seemed anything but creepy.

The fact that well-dressed gentlemen could efficiently decapitate people into neat little baskets must have seemed the height of modern technology in its day, like a sales brochure for a new kitchen appliance. Shocked 

That's probably exactly why it's so creepy now...

Norc has my vote, though as everyone has said, I'm not entirely sure if we need another mod.

The only elected office in Forumshire is that of Mayor and, like in the original Shire, it's not an office that brings much (read: any) responsibility with it. However, since we have a picnic coming up, I think there's a good chance that we'll have another Mayoral election soon. It's been a long time since the last one. Smile

Well, I certainly intend to run. I have no desire, of course, to have power over others. You'll hear from my campaign manager shortly.  Vote 1 for Honest Odo. Saucy Wink

Odo Banks is our man (hobbit),
If he can't do it no one can (not even Robert).

Don't vote for folk with names like Bungo -
If he's elected where will the fun go?  

And people like that ghastly Norc -
We'll end up a pack of dorks.

Vote for Odo - he's an honest man (hobbit)
He will Purify this whole land (boggit).

Well, Odo certainly is experinced, knowledgeable, fair minded, good.... and, above all, Respectable - and he has never bribed me - not once...  Embarassed {{{Though Mirabella has obvious attributes too. If she was to run, I guess I could find myself voting for her. I mean, I am open to powerful women like her being over me..  Embarassed }}}

I didn't fully read the post before I clicked it!

{{{I probably would have hit no after reading the post too, but thank goodness for these encryption brackets}}}

But I thought that this was about electing Norc to a new Mod position? I agree then with whoever said that she might replace all our avatars with Cumberbums one chilly Northern night out of boredom.
I mean, if the vote is just about who should be president, then I'll change my vote.
Of course everyone here likes you Norc. We can all swear by proxy through you; it's very cathartic.

"Do we like Norc... for new president/moderator?"
You have to read between the lines Norc, one day you'll master the ability. Razz

Mayors are alright I guess.
But something like Tar-Bungo would be cooler!

Wait, don't we already have a tyrant?
