Longest comment to shortest thread? Has to be one of the comments on The Phantom or Arrkrash or something of the kind :D

Can we do that? Trade you for a mule, I mean...

I could really use a mule, and that potion sure does sound handy!

The Missing-In-Action-Swallowed-by-Cthulhu Award

I'd have to guess myself as a winner for this one, given I was gone from around 2008ish (If I remember correctly) until just before 2011?

One step closer. I think the scripts are done :)

(Not *the* script, that would imply that there is something formal which may require pants. Perhaps a squirrel. This is the automagical votilogical organgraphicanomicon tallying script of mass hysteria.)

Excellent!  :D Out of curiosity, do the winners receive any kind of "award?") Maybe some bonus xp and a temporary custom forum title ("Winner of the _____ 2011 Muro Award!) to be displayed for 2-3 months? It might be a little work, but it would make the Muro's all the more special ;)

I hereby, and without further ado, present the 2010 edition of the Muro Awards.

Without Strolen’s enthusiasm and scripts none of this would have been possible. So special thanks to Strolen!!!!
Over the next few days, Award winners will be posted here for all to see. Feel free to accept your award here in-post with a few words, if the fancy strikes you.


We begin. (In no particular order. Without rhyme or reason. Let chaos reign.)


The first award of the evening is for the Most Upvoted Comment of 2010

The Award title says it all. We all love comments. Some more than others. Every single comment in contention was immeasurably better than these 5 for example:

1.   “I like it!”
2.   “What somebody else said”
3.   “iiiiinteresting”
4.   “Not bad”
5.   “Meh”

The race was tight. Countless members came in second with “5’s”, but the most upvoted comment was up-ticked 6 times, and therefore our first award winner, writer of 2010’s Most Upvoted Comment is REDGRE!

Congratulations Redgre! (Will send you PM, in case you don't look here  :))

(Incidentally, Redgre was also tied for second most up-voted comment with 5 up-ticks)

::balloons::music::applause::

I now give you the winning comment... http://strolen.com/viewing/6157#75710

The evening's next two awards will be combined, as neither recipient is here to collect the statuette.


The Missing-In-Action-Swallowed-by-Cthulhu Awardof the year (10' and 09') once again (pretend there have been past Muro Awards) goes to Captain Penguin.

Like Marlon Brando in 1974, the Captain will not be joining us this evening and has instead sent a representative to collect his statuette... 

...let us give a warm welcoming applause as it slithers onstage.

::applause::

"Ia Ia Cthulhu! Ia the Captain!"


The Most Time Spent Online Without Being Online Award, goes again (Everyone needs to keep pretending that there have been past Muro awards, as we continue with this ceremony) to the undisputed champion Knighthawk aka, Ria Hawk  (Check the Forum Stats. Ria is King!)



We miss you. Come back. Claim your awards. Don't win them again next year!  :wink:

They were chanting "Muro. Muro. Muro" when I snapped this original, not on the web, photo.

Screams erupted as each of our winners were announced.

Congrats to Redgre so far as the others may not be around to see this. Or Ria might be reading this right now as she is always on line...hmmmmm.

I would like to call into question Redge's Comment's title of Most Upvoted Comment. As it only has 6xp, this could have come about in 2 seperate ways: Dossta and one other could have upvoted it, or 6 individuals could have upvoted it, as, and correct me if i am wrong, the sub's author grants 5xp for an upvote. CAn we verify this is a case of 6 separete upvotes? and not just 2? The title of the award lead me to believe it was based on individual ticks, not overall xp. Also: Most of the 5'ers are probably from upvotes by author as well. THIS IS FRAUDULENT! I DEMAND A RECOUNT!

For what it's worth, I was absolutely one of the people who upvoted Redgre's various comments on my sub, because I found them to be incredibly insightful.  I don't recall, however, whether or not this happened before the "5xp per author upvote" change or not.  That feature has also been a bit buggy -- on a more recent sub of mine ("A Cupid for Cornelius"), I upvoted a few comments and it only received one xp.  When I went back and tried it again later, it allowed me to upvote a second time for the full 5xp.

Either way, I truly appreciate Regre's helpful advice on "Memory Moths", and wish him the best.  Thanks again, man!

Back after a word from our sponsers, we continue with the ceremony.


Content is King here at Strolens, and based on that statement I would like to present the Award for Most 2010 Submissions overall as well as the Award for Most 2010 Quest Submissions .

Why am I clubbing these 2 awards together?

Because our winner for both Awards is the same person. The one, the only, the undisputed Content King of 2010 is....

PIEH!!

Take a bow Pieh. All kidding aside, you should be commended! 8 Quest submissions and 37 overall. Stupendous.

We next come to glorious debuts and celebrated returns.

The Award for Newbie of the Year of 2010 needs no introduction. But I will give it one anyway. The newcomer of the year award is not based on good looks, popularity, or any other kind of subjective criteria. It is simply based on amount of activity since joining (in 2010)!

Now I present our Newbie of the year.

Drumroll...

DOSSTA! Congratulations! We are glad you found the site, and are thrilled to have you in our ranks!


The Comeback Strolenite of the Year Award on the other hand, goes to someone who was gone for a while, but then returned in force, with a flurry of awesome activity!

I hereby present the 2010 Muro to Silveressa!

Take a bow, you have earned it!

*Bows awkwardly*

It was once said by a non-profit prophet that "When the Great Moon is overthrown and the pastry's crust rises above its humble origins; then the times of Change and Tribulations will doth Begin."

I believe I have come to fulfill this prophecy, and now we can expect to see amazing things happen, both in our lives and at this Citadel.

I have a few people I would like to thank: First and foremost - Strolen. I don't know if I've said this enough, but I value your website a great deal and will be forever in your debt for creating it. Then there are the newbies - Dossta & Blydden. Both of these shining new members have helped my imagination grow into complete submissions, and for that I thank them.

Thank you all for making this award possible, I thank ALL of you. Without your kind words and support, I wouldn't be doing this.
