2008-10-01 [All_Most PUNK]: Going back to something previously said...
Being "known" on ET doesn't help a lot. That's actually the reason why we don't feature crew people: because they are already well known, at least most of them. The idea is to put the spotlight on less "famous" people. Of course, since we follow (not always, but lots of times) your dominations, how little known they are is up to you.
Being active does help, though.
2008-11-17 [All_Most PUNK]: Noted.
2009-01-10 [Linderel]: Fixed, thanks. :P
2009-02-04 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: I want to nominate [moira hawthorne] because she is a dear friend, a beloved elftowner. She is creative, and loves elftown. She is one of a kind.
She is bringing Elftown back, being one of the most talented artists in here right now :)
2009-02-23 [All_Most PUNK]: Noted
2009-02-26 [SilverFire]: What's the bird on the badge? <.<
2009-02-26 [Janouk]: An American Goldfinch? (I don't think it's it because the black's on the wrong side, but it does look like it :))
2009-02-26 [SilverFire]: according to google image they have black caps rather than back around their throats.
2009-02-26 [Janouk]: Yeah, I saw :/
2009-02-26 [SilverFire]: Think it's this one?
2009-02-26 [Chimes]: Looks to be.
2009-02-27 [Doormat]: New badge? :D.
2009-02-27 [Rainbow Dragonflies]: You just want more colors on your already-cracke
2009-03-03 [Mortified Penguin]: I gotta say... I would make a great featured member... *eats ramen*...
2009-11-24 [Mortified Penguin]: Still gotta say... I would seriously make a great featured member... *eats ramen*...
2009-11-27 [Doormat]: Can't let you do that, Star fox.
2009-11-27 [Mortified Penguin]: I'll barrel roll into your face!
2010-03-09 [SilverFire]: *prods page*
2010-03-30 [M!]: QUESTION! So, the old archives are outdated since they only go up to 2007 when linking to the other years. I was ready to fix it up when I ran into the road block that they're password protected. Seems a little necessary. Any member of the crew should be able to edit them.
Also, on each archive page, the first link in the list of years goes to a blank wiki. Shouldn't it be linking to this page?
2010-03-31 [M!]: Noted!
2010-03-31 [All_Most PUNK]: All solved.
Why don't you comment these things in the forum instead of here?
2010-03-31 [M!]: Will next time. Thanks for helping me fix everything
2010-06-21 [dancingSHEEP]: I'd like to nominate [Nioniel] simply because she puts so much effort into not only trying to reinfluence the artistic side of ElfTown, but also because she's incredible at her jobs. She does things promptly and efficently.
2010-06-22 [dancingSHEEP]: *smirks*
2010-08-04 [dancingSHEEP]: I'd be happy to help with this, if needed. :D
2010-08-04 [Mortified Penguin]: Help with making me a featured member? Great!
2010-08-04 [dancingSHEEP]: :D I'm down for pretty much anything. *winks*
2010-09-04 [All_Most PUNK]: Nioniel is part of the Council, so no no.
2010-09-04 [Nioniel]: Thanks, though, everyone. :)
2010-10-29 [M!]: I'm afraid crew and crewbies can't be featured member
2010-10-29 [dancingSHEEP]: Akay, you're a doll.
2010-10-29 [Akayume]: Oh no! I did not know that! That's kind of sad. :(
2010-10-29 [Chel.]: Why was that? Curious...
2010-10-29 [Linderel]: Because we already get enough attention as it is, being, y'know, 'the ruling elite' and all.
2010-11-02 [All_Most PUNK]: Plus, nobody ever nominated me and that made me jealous, so I destroyed any chance of any crew member being featured.
2010-11-02 [Chel.]: Serious....?
2010-11-03 [All_Most PUNK]: Of course I'm serious. Have you ever seen me joking?
2010-11-03 [Chel.]: ...I don't even know you.
2010-11-03 [Thunder Cid]: I got nominated XP
2010-11-03 [Chimes]: Before or after you became council? :P
2010-11-03 [Thunder Cid]: No I just wanna war with Punky.
*junk forum now*
2010-12-26 [Chel.]: Any objections to updating for a new featured member?
2010-12-26 [Linderel]: I doubt there are, although I suggest you conduct these types of conversations on the notespage.
2010-12-26 [Mortified Penguin]: Thanks! You misspelled my name though.
2010-12-26 [Linderel]: That joke is getting tired. :P
2010-12-26 [Mortified Penguin]: Your mom is getting tired!
2010-12-26 [Linderel]: Well, taking into account the fact that it's half past eleven in the evening, I'd say that has a good chance of being true.
2011-01-09 [All_Most PUNK]: Eventually somebody will really nominate him, and then we won't know what to do.
2011-01-09 [Mortified Penguin]: I believe that situation has already happened and gone unnoticed.
2011-01-09 [All_Most PUNK]: Exactly, we didn't know what to do >>
2011-01-09 [Eyden Of The Leprechauns]: I seriously what to know how you did that 0.o
2011-03-24 [Mortified Penguin]: Eventually you're going to run out of people and then you'll have to feature me! It may take a few hundred years though... but you'll see... you'll all see!
2011-03-24 [Akayume]: You're silly. :P
2011-03-31 [Captain Rachel Black]: I second (or how many ever times she's been nominated) [dancingSHEEP] she is so active in creating and participating in contests and has taken it as her personal job to inspire people pigeonedink. Not to mention her House always looks fanfloggin'tas
2011-03-31 [Chimes]: She's on the council so sadly can't be featured. :/
2011-03-31 [Captain Rachel Black]: When did that happen and when did I become the only one of my friends not on the council? XD
2011-03-31 [dancingSHEEP]: Thank you, Rach'. I appreciate the respect even though I have been so absent on here, as of late. <3
2011-03-31 [Akayume]: Well, you should join the crowd and make an app rachel. :P
2011-03-31 [Captain Rachel Black]: Me? Be a council member? I'm way too lazy...
2011-03-31 [Linderel]: You can always be whipped into doing things... :3
2011-03-31 [Captain Rachel Black]: I'm not that kinky XD
2011-03-31 [Thunder Cid]: *facepalm*
2011-03-31 [Captain Rachel Black]: (wink)
2011-03-31 [Akayume]: Random chatter! :P shush!
2011-04-26 [Akayume]: You're nominating yourself? :P
2011-04-26 [Mortified Penguin]: For the hundredth time... yes.
2011-05-03 [Akayume]: Thank you. (:
2011-05-03 [Thrice]: Only being truthful. C:
2011-05-03 [Akayume]: I've made a note of your nomination. :D
Ps - Feel free to nominate more members as you see fit. :O
2011-05-03 [Thrice]: :D I hope she'll be thrilled.
C: I will do just that!
2011-05-03 [Akayume]: Awesomeee! Keep 'em coming!
2011-05-15 [RemovedAcct]: Can you nominate someone if they're a Featured Member Boss?
2011-05-15 [Mortified Penguin]: Well, to be a Featured Member Boss, you have to be on the Council. And Council members can't be featured, so no.
2011-05-16 [Akayume]: Mort is correct. :D But it's the thought that counts. Merci. (:
2011-05-31 [Lord Josmar]: I dont see why council members cant be featured.
2011-05-31 [Chimes]: Not a featured member boss but I think it's like this: We get enough exposure just for being on the Council, so most ET members know who we are. Featured Member is to feature the lesser known Elftowner. :) (Who are probably more interesting than us for the general ET population :P)
2011-05-31 [Eyden Of The Leprechauns]: you guys are so interesting. Maybe you could make a council feature member page and do it less often.
2011-05-31 [Thunder Cid]: Bleh non of us are interesting XP
2011-05-31 [Eyden Of The Leprechauns]: lol, okay though you guys are pretty awesome.
2011-05-31 [Thrice]: Seems like most of you have a lot of interesting going on to me. >.>
2011-05-31 [Chel.]: Pfff I think I'm interesting! XD But that's beside the point.
2011-06-08 [Akayume]: Noted. (:
2011-06-14 [Lord Josmar]: You'll get it one day Mort.
2011-06-14 [Mortified Penguin]: You'll ALL get it one day!! *waves a knife around*
2011-06-14 [Akayume]: Noted. (:
2011-06-16 [~Queen Of The Shadows~]: can you nominate people, if so, How?
2011-06-16 [Mortified Penguin]: Just say who you want to nominate.
2011-06-16 [Akayume]: You can post a nomination in the forum, you could send one of the bosses a message, or you could post it here. (: Whichever you prefer! And of course you can nominate! We love getting nominations. (:
2011-06-16 [Lord Josmar]: All you have to do is say that you are nominating so-and-so. I do believe.
2011-06-16 [Lord Josmar]: Darn...one comment too late, lol
2011-06-16 [Mortified Penguin]: You know, of the last thirty featured members, only two have been male. However, Elftown's active members are roughly equal, with 408 males and 422 females logging on in the last week. So it isn't a lack of male members causing this. Does this mean that females on Elftown are inherently more interesting and deserving of being featured? Or perhaps only females are ever nominated? That can't be true though, I've seen plenty of males nominated before. So what then is the case? Maybe the Featured Member Bosses are to blame, but that can't be it. The Crew is infallible, as we're all so well aware of. Maybe it's all just a coincidence or something, like how the Crew is also mostly female... I dunno... *eats ramen*...
In any case, I would like to nominate myself.
2011-06-16 [SilverFire]: That can't be true though, I've seen plenty of males nominated before.
Actually, most of the recent nominations HAVE been female. Find some other males to nominate.
2011-06-16 [Mortified Penguin]: I do believe I've nominated quite a few in the past. Maybe they've just been overlooked? Peculiar.
I'll just try again, I suppose. How about [Pillowthief], [Paul Doyle], [Nekko fox], [Sagacious Turkey], [Imperator], [American Revolutionary], [Avaz], [Duke Devlin] (she's close enough), [nokaredes] (I'm pretty darn sure she has a penis as well), [Lord Josmar], [Lethan], [Mystin], [RemovedAcct], [djxmonster], [HTOWNCASPER], [Sideways], [ScottJo], and [Sheamus Finn]?
2011-06-16 [SilverFire]: I was just looking through past pages for exactly that. Some nominations may well have been overlooked whilst the feature was somewhat dormant.
2011-06-16 [Mortified Penguin]:
2011-06-16 [Mortified Penguin]: I second that nomination.
2011-06-16 [Akayume]: All noted. (:
2011-06-17 [Mortified Penguin]: Yeah, Twitchy too. And don't forget about all the other people I forgot.
2011-07-01 [Akayume]: Noted. (:
2011-07-03 [Yami]: Thank you ^_^
2011-07-16 [Lord Josmar]: If we get one more woman in a row for the featured member, I'm going to call shenanigans!
2011-07-16 [Lord Josmar]: :p
2011-07-16 [wicked fae mage]: So nominate more men that are active. :P
And remember that there's a list.
2011-07-16 [SilverFire]: I wonder if you'd have noticed had it been so many men in a row. <_<
2011-07-16 [Mortified Penguin]: I would have. I notice these things. And those things. And sometimes even them things as well.
2011-07-16 [SilverFire]: I don't suppose you've noticed how many Europeans to Americans we've featured? I was actually getting quite curious about certain statistics, and was almost tempted to investigate, but if you've already noticed...? :P
2011-07-16 [Mortified Penguin]: No, no, that would be included in them there things, which aren't things I've noticed yet, but will have noticed in the future.
2011-07-16 [SilverFire]: Lemme know when you notice them. :P
2011-07-17 [Lord Josmar]: I wouldn't know if they were European or not unless I did further research. And the only reason I noticed that there were so many women in a row was because someone mentioned it earlier somewhere. So there :P"
2011-08-06 [Thrice]: >.> I nominate Mort... just to make him happy and get him out of the way xD
2011-08-07 [Yami]: I nominate Mort too because he's a funny penguin
2011-08-07 [Lord Josmar]: I nominate Mort again.
2011-08-07 [Mortified Penguin]: I fifth that nomination.
2011-08-07 [Doormat]: Nope.gif
2011-11-04 [wicked fae mage]: She's a crew member, so she cannot be featured. But, I am certain she appreciates the thought! :)
2011-11-04 [Mortified Penguin]: I second that.
2011-11-04 [Ravenclaw]: That being crew would make his head swell? *snicker snicker*
2011-11-04 [Mortified Penguin]: That as well.
2011-11-04 [Ravenclaw]: lol
2011-11-04 [Mortified Penguin]: Awright.
>complain about no guys ever winning featured member
>four guys win in a row
Now, if we could only get more guys on the crew...
2011-11-04 [wicked fae mage]: Lord Josmar is not a member of crew, so I'll put him on the list of nominations. :)
2011-11-04 [Lord Josmar]: ...my head wouldn't swell...
2011-11-04 [Mortified Penguin]: It's swelling right now! *repeatedly stabs it to relieve pressure*
2011-11-04 [Ravenclaw]: Josmar... You and I both know that it would.
2011-11-08 [Mortified Penguin]: Fact: If I were to be a featured member, everyone would get to see sexy pictures of me. :D
2011-11-08 [Lord Josmar]: Inominate[mortifiedpenguin]!!!!!!!!!!111!
2012-01-10 [wicked fae mage]: Noted! Thank you :)
2012-01-10 [Lumos Maxima]: No, thank you! :D
2012-03-05 [Mortified Penguin]: I nominate Mortified Pe- oh, wait...
2012-04-27 [Doormat]: I'd like to nominate [Petrified Penguin] for being a shining example of a penguin.
2012-04-28 [Mortified Penguin]: *loads his shotgun* Excuse me for a moment. *storms out the door, jumps into his truck, and promptly crashes into an oak tree, because he has been drinking heavily over the last few hours*... *stumbles out of the flaming wreckage and starts shooting at a stop sign, screaming stuff about the stock market*
2012-09-13 [Mortified Penguin]: ........this page needs updating.
2012-09-14 [wicked fae mage]: Whoops... Thanks, Mort! It slipped my mind!
2012-09-14 [Yami]: See? Mort should be featured, he rocks my socks ^^
2012-09-14 [Yami]: *giggles* See? He's funny and thoughtful.
2012-10-03 [wicked fae mage]: Yes, you do. And thank you for your nomination. :)
2012-11-12 [Mortified Penguin]: *sobs*
2012-11-12 [wicked fae mage]: Thank you for your nominations! :)
2012-12-31 [Mortified Penguin]: (and me too, while you're at it!)
2013-03-22 [pegasus1000]: I would like to nominate [SilverFire] First of all her number is awesome and Secondly she knows how to kick ass and take names in good form. I am really surprised she hasn't been featured for all the help she gives.
2013-03-22 [wicked fae mage]: She hasn't been featured because she was a crew member. Crew members can't be featured while they're crew members. And thanks for the nomination.
2013-03-23 [pegasus1000]: Mort you nominating yourself probably ruined your chances of actually being featured... It's like if I were to say "Hey re-feature me because the old format sucked..." It would NEVER happen... (I am kidding. Yes my feature was short but it's probably the funniest.). Think of this like kick ball, the more you say "Pick me! pick me!" the more the rest of us will ignore you.
2013-03-24 [Mortified Penguin]: I think I understand what you're saying. I need to kick a lot of balls if I'm to get featured. Thanks for the advice!
Also, I would like to nominate [Mortified Penguin].
2013-03-24 [Mortified Penguin]: As for your analogy, It's more like a lot of kids on the playground are saying, "Hey, pick Mort. He's great at kickball." And I'm saying, "Seriously, you guys. I played at regionals last year and lead the team to a near perfect season before we lost to the Sewageville Prep Fighting Wolpertings in triple overtime. And that was just because Larry got ejected for being 27 in an elementary school league and we lost our backup kicker."
And the team captains (the ones in charge of selecting featured members) are all like, "Yeah, he's awesome and the best player and should be on my team, but he's too damn handsome and Bridgett is watching and he'll show me up and make me look bad. And I've been wanting to date Bridgett since SECOND GRADE. But NNNNOOOOOOO! She always has to hook up with the cool jocks! When will she see my INNER BEAUTY?!" and then they break down in puny tears and sob like the children they are.
2013-05-01 [Mortified Penguin]: Hey, I've actually been nominated by [Eyden Of The Leprechauns], [Lord Josmar], [Thrice], [Yami], and possibly [Madhalf Heatlump]. And myself like 80 times. I think my chances are looking pretty high! :D
2013-08-08 [Mortified Penguin]: I hate you so much.
2013-08-08 [Sunrose]: Don't go Kelis on me now..
2013-08-09 [Mortified Penguin]:
2013-08-09 [wicked fae mage]: Thanks, it completely slipped my mind. Fixed.
2013-08-27 [Avaz]: Thanks. :) I'm just noticing this comment now. ^^
2013-08-27 [Sunrose]: =P
