It is time for the torch to be passed.
« on: May 21, 2009, 05:15:30 AM »
We all love Zeltar. He has been the forum baby for a few years now. The fact of the matter is, he is growing up (as much as we all hate to admit it). I here by suggest the notion that he passes the torch and appoints icysk8er as the new forum baby. He is 14, a smart ass, likes to challenge people, makes threads fail, and yet some how still seems like he belongs at DTF. I feel this kid should be able to handle this position just fine, as long as his shirt stays on. What do you say?

I think he's too new to take Zeltar's place. I think we need at least a 6 month minimum to reach Zeltar's status of forum toddler.

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

as a forum elder who's mostly ignored I second Chino's motion.
Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Happy Lives to you all.

I say he has to complete an epic task to gain this title.

That task is get your ass over to your advanced chorus rehearsals and out of the computer lab, take part in the program today/tonight, and DO NOT QUIT BECAUSE YOU"RE DISAPPOINTED.

He has to go through a ceremonial ritual first before taking over.

A rite of passage if you will

Aw, I never wanted to make you feel bad. I"m sorry. If you're sure you can't ask the computer lab teacher person for a pass to chorus, saying that you were online here looking for electronic kits because your teacher told you at the last second you need one, then there's nothing you can do.

That's a shame though, teachers are just people, and sometimes they even have the job because they pretty much LIKE kids...

but anyway about it, you're home here. :)

I would suggest using an actual torch, but everybody involved is still too young to play with matches.

Isn't torchpassing a thing that goes unmentioned or unplanned until it has actually happened?
Otherwise, it's just a forced dissemination of false glory intended to elevate one while further immortalizing another.

^^^ I think the implication is that its more or less already happened, and we're now just figuring out what sort of ceremony to hold to commemorate the event.

I broke it.

The remains, AFAIK, are in fact with antipop at 5/8.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I went.  I went to the chorus, swallowed my pride in front of anyone, and asked if I could be in the concert.  And she said yes.  So I am in the concert now.  Thank you for talking me into it.  =D.  p.s.  I am the forum baby cuz of this now.  =D

thanks,
Collin
[p.s. she said I can wear what ever I want as long as I come, but it is supposed to be black pants and a white shirt.
so there is my epic task.  And I think I can live up to the responsibility. =D.  as long as it is ok with zeltar.  I think maybe just have in this thread, zeltar passing it.  me taking it. =D

I think it is only fair to let Zeltar choose the task for icysk8er to complete to be awarded such an honor.
