I've decided to turn this into a contest, hopefully with the effect of motivating you guys to go out and find these guys.
Here's the deal. For the premise of this contest, read the original post below.
The contest part is pretty simple. For each former LT member that you get to join, you get a point. Whoever has the most points on December 01, 2006 will win.
I haven't decided for sure on the prize yet, because I need to talk it over with EP, but it's going to be something very worth-it. At the least, it'll be something like the ability to lock your own threads or create polls, or maybe even a bump up one full level, as in Templar -> Keeper or Keeper -> Arbiter (You Arbiters won't be getting bumped up to Elder though You guys should be doing this with the same motivation I am - you want that badly to see CS grow). This isn't going to be just like "YOU GET A SIG" and then no one ever makes one for you, it's going to be a good prize.
Not a whole lot of rules. Use either the list below, your memory, the master list of members, or whatever to find names of members, and then use whatever means neccessary (Chozo Sanctuary is not responsible for you, and will deny any knowledge of your existence, if you are apprehended by the authorities) to track down the member. Then, tell them about how LT closed back in June, how we made CS, and invite them.
-No points are awarded for getting people who've already registered to return. However, do it anyway.
-If it comes down to multiple people claiming responsibility for someone's registration, the new registree's word will be considered truth.
Please continue to name people when you think of them so I can add them to the list. This isn't meant to be a cutthroat competition; the purpose is to give every ex-Templar a chance to join, and someone else might be the one who is able to contact someone you don't know how to.

I was just thinking, and started remembering how hectic LT's closing was and wondering if there were people who never came over to CS and were just kind of forgotten by us.
There are tons of people who were active at LT at some point or another, but if they were unlucky enough to not be at the time of its closing, they'd have no way of knowing about this place.
So I was thinking let's try to make a list of people who never joined here, and then we can try to figure out a way to contact them. Like, maybe someone would remember they had another forum they were part of, and we could look for them there.
A couple people who were "big" at LT and never really became active here are Twin, Misterhero, and MPG, but I've talked to all three of them, and they either are members but don't come here often (Mister and MPG... both of whom have told me they'll be coming soon), or don't want to at the moment (Twin). I'm just listing these guys saying don't bother mentioning them. As you guys add people, I can edit them into a list.
Try to think of more obscure people... not implying anyone is less important of course, just maybe people who contributed, but not often enough to be really recognized.
I found some word docs I had saved from LT and found a few names.
Current List (strike indicates they've now joined)
Prowl (he's obviously a member already, but he's done r-u-n-n-o-f-t)
Oh, and it probably goes without saying, but if someone names a person you didn't get along with, we don't care, so don't bash them. The point of this is to get as many people, regardless of whether you liked them.
