Display Case Contenders
« on: June 26, 2010, 06:24:34 PM »
See a thread you feel is worth preserving in the Display Case?  After the board locks it, nominate it here.  Be sure to give us a direct link and a brief summary of what it is/why it's worth preserving.

using this space for some suggestions as you recomended :)

The Q&A thread that was just moved to WoJ has a second Q&A session quoted on the second page that I didn't even know about for weeks after reading the first one in the OP, so I highly recomend editing the bottom of the OP to direct people to:

http://www.jimbutcheronline.com/bb/index.php/topic,11734.msg538824.html#msg538824

EDIT:  Ack, there is another Q&A session posted on page 22 Post 321 from Lee's summit.  I have to wonder if there are more I'm missing (kermit the frog arm wavy thingy while running around screaming)
EDIT2: Another Q&A session posted on page 16 Post 228

Additionally, although this topic hasn't been locked by the board yet as the instructions for this topic imply being necessisary for nomination, but... Laura118b did a through clarification on what was actually said for the last question listed in the above link.  Quoting here, and the quote has a link to the post.

I can answer to the veracity of the second quote, I asked him the question :)
The full question was if he had stated in the past, during an interview, that Elaine also was a candidate to have the potential to wield power over Outsiders.  His longer answer was yes, he had said that before, that Harry and Elaine are just a few months apart age wise so for all intensive purposes the same age.  He then told me that was one of the reasons that Justin had picked both of them to adopt, it wasn't just random kids with power.  The key word in my question and his answer was potential.

I mostly asked this to settle a debate around here.  A handful of us remembered reading the interview but none of us could find it anymore, so some other members wondered if it had ever been said or was just an example of people reading others saying it so often they thought they had really read it.  So I asked him to settle the debate once and for all. ;)

URL for direct link

I don't know how you might chose to handle this, but I recomend editing the 2nd Q&A post in the now WoJ'd topic to include the above quote.

Since nobody's done it yet, I'd like to nominate the first post of the Warden Case File on Harry for the Display Case.

Ah geez. There was a thread from a while back where people had collected all the known names in the DF so far and gave the etymologies of each one. It was pretty interesting and I was going to suggest it for the Display Case, but it looks like it has already been deleted. Any way to get that back?

Nope.  Once something is purged, it stays purged.  This is why it's important for folks to speak up about the rare threads they feel need to be kept!

I second the motion.  That post needs to be saved.

Folks, the Display Case isn't for single moments of hilarity.  It's for whole threads that are so insightful or clever or funny that folks feel purging them would represent a loss to the forum.

Besides, it wasn't even original; as much fun as I had tweaking it, it really belongs to the Old Spice writers. ;)

I'm unsure if this thread is monumental enough, but I've found it quite insiteful, and have actually quoted it in a few responses where people asked about mister, so I was hoping it could be placed in the display case.  It's already been thread locked so it's in danger of getting purged.

Also, this post has a lot of comments from Iago that I've used similarly wrt inquiries about the DFRPG.  It hasn't been autolocked yet but it's been dormant for almost 6 months.

I don't think it will ever get locked, but Serack's WoJ compilation deserves this
