Sens Lounge XLVIII | Turkey Day Takeover 1st Anniversary | Trifarce/Triforce Edition

Trifarce, Triforce, Kingslayer, it doesn't matter.

Regardless of which side you were on, one year ago today marked the most controversial, influential, and legendary moment in the history of the Senators Lounge. It defined a new era of the lounge.

Today is the day where the tyrannous regime of the Triforce fell, with the legendary disagreement between Sean9 and OmniSens. The elitist party began to crumble, and through the rubble emerged three young individuals who only wanted peace, love, and happiness in the lounge.

On October 10th, 2011 @ 7:23PM, Sean9 posted the following detailing the emergence of the Trifarce:

Quote:
It all started off with me and Omni, we had a solid pair there, but I knew, from my many years of watching survivor, that we needed a stronger number than that.

Strength in numbers, strength in numbers, whats the strongest shape? A TRIANGLE, how many sides in a triangle? THREE!

From that point on, I knew it was us against the world, we needed the triangle, the strength, the numbers. We were lost, lonely, very aware that the puzzle was missing a piece.

And then one day, Hockeyalltheway shared his genius, he liked community. Our relationship started from that moment, The first bam was Community, then BAM! Arrested Development, BAM! Dr Horribles Sing Along Blog, BAM! The Office.

I knew we had something, and then it hit me, the triangle, he was the missing piece, the three's to our company, the Hutch to our Starsky, the she said to the that's what.

We sent an official invitation to Hockeyalltheway, right in this very thread (Then known as All Purpose Off Topic/Discussion Thread) And then the magic happened, it all started, right here.

Our first order of business, a name, we fooled around with random things, tri-fecta, trio of awesome, but none of them instilled the fear in our oppents like the one that came up at the end, " The Triforce. "

And there it was. The triforce had been born, next we toyed around with some logos, we had some fun things, some cute things, but none of them got the message across. Lucky for us, Hockeyalltheway knew someone, he knew someone real good, I surely don't have to describe the logo, as I am certain it appears every time you go to bed, spending countless hours tossing and turning,wondering what will come next.

Abbreviations: Hockeyalltheway was getting tedious to type, we initially shortened it to HATW, but that just didn't cut it. Then omni came up with the ingenious idea, "HAWT" BOOM DONE SEE YA LATER - History was made.

Our first task: Taking over the OT threads, we made it a point to finish top three in the standings on multiple occasions, but after a while, it was getting too easy, we needed to make our mark, then came the birth of the super cool spectacular hangout zone. Unfortunatly, it was short lived, it was immeadiatley moved into the last OT thread, and the same boring title persisted.

And then came a revolution, we struck a deal, an understanding, although no verbal or formal agreements were made, it has become widely accepted that only members of the triforce may create the OT discussion thread. History had been made, our first task had been completed, the Triforce had made it's mark, and boy, was everyone scared.

Over the time many groups have formed to defeat the triforce, but none of them have lasted, because not only are we the strongest, best, and most glorified group, we have the most heart. And isn't that what it's all about folks?

Wait to see what's next, yes, we have slowed down, but no, we have not given up, I recognize our new competitors, and I embrace them, because what's the point without competition, just ask EA Sports.
On October 10th, 2011 @ 7:28PM, CanadianHockey posted this after Omni and Smeddy's talk about the triforce:

Quote:
I am tempted to make a trifarce right about now.
GoncharKarlsson and Manked, also feeling left out of the elitist group, discussed the idea with CH, and with that the Trifarce was born. Shanny and Saabman soon followed, angering many that the number grew past 3, eliminating the purpose of "tri".

Under the leadership of the inaugural president, CanadianHockey, the Trifarce established their morals and their ideals. This was the statement prepared by Manked in the inaugural address of the Trifarce:

Quote:
We are eternally grateful for becoming the party in power, but we are also looking forward to working with our official opposition, the triforce, in order to maintain a pleasant OT Board experience. If you are interested in becoming a member of our faction, please contact via PM one of our Founding Members, as listed above.

Again, we wish to reiterate the point that we hope to closely work with our opposition, and if this means we only rule for one term, we are fine with this. Our goal is to make the OT Boards awesome, no matter if we are the ruling faction or opposition faction.

From all of us at the Trifarce, have a wonderful day!
The Trifarce began the leading party.

Kingslayer summarized his thoughts on the change in power by saying:

Quote:
What?
***

What's best about the Turkey Day Takeover is not the battle for power, the forming of alliances, or the stupidity of Kingslayer. What was best, was the fact that out of that, the Lounge took the first step in becoming what it is today. When it began, each OT Thread finished with roughly 6 or 7 people with 20+ posts. Today, that number has doubled. And that's thanks to the co-operation between the two parties after the dust settled.

So thank you loungers, new and old, for making this place an awesome way to avoid finishing assignments that are due the next day.

Tonight when I get back to Sudbury, I'm going to crack open my Captain Morgans and make a toast to the Trifarce AND the Triforce.

I'd like to congratulate Beville for becoming the newest Lounger Regularmus I believe.

That's incorrect. Or else Omni would be top dog. And we all know that isn't true.

It's not about post count.

It's about Posts Per Day.

You should post what that looked like pre-Turkey Day Takeover. I bet a lot less people would be there.

GK asked for the Statman to come out of retirement, and he got his wish.

While their were a Lounge Record 17 members with over 20 posts last thread, at the time of the Turkey Day Takeover last year, there were only 7 equivalents of Lounger Regularmi. They were:

OmniSens
CanadianHockey
Kingslayer
HockeyAllTheWay
Sean9
GoncharKarlsson
Manked

EDIT: I am busing, but I'll probably be there really early because I haven't seen my Dad in 6 weeks and he's flying home tomorrow.

I was only including since the inception of the Regularmi, but I think I should include the past as well. You're right.

But what do you mean arbitrary?

Being a Lounger Regularmus is based on reaching quantitative objectives. There's no bias.
