Jump to: navigation, search

During Grant Lawrence Live, the person with comment #500 is said to be in the Iron Throne. This honour allows them person to make a request that will be played by the end of the show, if it is in the system. If there is not enough time or the show is being broadcast out of Toronto, or is pre-recorded, the request can be held over until a later date. The honour of the Iron Throne can be abdicated and the powers transferred to another member of the community.
