    The 2016 Flamies Award Ceremony







    The Flame of Udûn Collectors message board presents
    The Flamies Awards 2016

    live from the Green Dragon

    The red carpet is rolled out and our nicest outfits are picked up from the dry cleaners.
    Let's get this party started!

    For the next few days we'll celebrate ourselves. You have sent in your votes for who YOU think
    deserve to win one of the glorious Flamies awards. Does your nominee win? Do YOU win?

    Follow this thread closely for the next few days for a fantastic celebration and a laugh or two!


    We've been through a rough year in 2016. The forum started responding slower and slower and pictures didn't want to load. It was not the easiest or most rewarding time to try keeping a discussion alive on FoU. In the middle of the year we switched from Weta's server to vbulletin's own server system. Although things have changed quite a bit behind the scenes, the forum is now back to it's old self. Much more responsive and always updated to the newest version. It is kind of funny that the Weta forum on the board made quite a mess the very same week we have decided to celebrate and look back at the past year.

    And now, some statistics:
    Threads: 1.352 (+ 546)
    Posts: 54.655 (+ 25.504)
    Members: 685 (+ 167)
    The average post count has gone up from last year to an average of 80 (+ 24) posts a member.

    Our top posters:
    1. Minuialwen 2976 ( - )
    2. Ithildin 1798 ( +4 )
    3. Idril 1704 ( +2 )
    4. Nocturno the Dark Shadow 1678 ( +11 )

    8. TheWhiteHand 1222 ( -4 )
    9. Scriff 1214 (+7)
    10. Bill59 1180 ( +8 )
    Those three who's no longer with us in top 10 deserves a mention:
    Elessar fell from 8th to 11th, Fritz from 9th to 19th and Valheruerkan from 10th to 18th.




    There are 11 categories this year, plus entries for The Flame of Udûn Hall of Flame. You Flamers have been waiting eagerly a long time for this and we are going to announce the first award in a few hours. I can hear the buzzing from the red carpet all the way in here, our place of party, The Green Dragon. Come on now, come to us at the Green Dragon!

    Your hosts are Red, Stig, Olórin, Scriff and Minuialwen!

              Here's a picture from a couple of hours ago showing Forger, Allosaur176, who had the "poopiest" job, cleaning up after Elessar's horse, Brego, left a real mess behind during last year's red carpet event, and Dave Mac, get everything cleaned, and set up for this year's red carpet, and Flamies celebration!

              Just what, or should I say who, did Dave Mac find?
              That's none other than Eti, trying to sneak in before the celebrations begin. Shame on you Eti,
              I'm sure we will be able to find something for you to do.

                      Oh Brego! You really need to work on your potty manners...

                      Now, now Eti. It's not nice to try and sneak a peek!

                      I love the excitement of the Flamies red carpet!!

                      Foe, you are looking utterly smashing!! The color scheme is very complimentary and very fitting for a red carpet stroll!

                                  Just woke up - what did I miss?

                                  Party started without me?

                                  good luck everyone!

                                    Ah, there is our first actual guest! (Sneaking in doesn't count, Eti!) Long time member of both the Flame of Udûn and the Shadow and Flame, she even physically reminds me of both forums. I wonder why

                                    The lovely grueSam, rocking it in her black and gold dress! Isn't she lovely?

                                        Without a doubt. That's why we didn't even list it as an award you could votes for. The winner was decied from the get go!

                                        Pretty boys with their colour coordinated suits. Looking smashing.

                                        And Gruesam is quite the sight. And I think she might be able to help us get the Green Dragon fireplace going.
