Gnome found! And... surprise.... he's lost again! (UPDATE: FOUND!!)

Huzzah! @Welles found MV Gnome within about 5 minutes on Friday — our small bearded friend was in this post from GeorgeB. Thank you, @Welles! Your very own MV gnome is flying your way to complete your collection (hopefully with less damage than last year). 

 

But, it seems that MV Gnome wasn't content to sit around all weekend... I arrived this morning to a gnome-free windowsill.

A few team members and I searched around the office, and we eventually found little MV in this bucket of odd-sized CMNA polo shirts:

I'm not really sure why he decided to snuggle up with the polo shirts — maybe he's looking for a more comfy home? I created a cozy nest for him on the windowsill, and I even turned him around so he can see the view.

Then I headed to a meeting. And.... guess what? Upon my return, I found no gnome (though the nest is still there)! I'm guessing he's here on the community.

 

Just like last time, if you find him, reply to the post (within the Product and Technology Discussions) he's hiding in with "I FOUND THE GNOME!" The first to reply will get their own MV gnome as a token of appreciation for finding our small friend.

 

(And no, @Welles, you can't win twice 😛)

 

P.S. If you'd like to learn more about the MV Gnome and his brothers Switch, MR, and MX Gnome, take a look at this post.

 

P.P.S. Update December 17 @ 7pm Pacific: @Adoos found him! He was hiding in jared_f's comment on the the announcement about CMNA / CMNO badges (clever guy, he wasn't hiding in Product and Technology discussions like I said he was... sorry about that 😳)

 

P.P.P.S. Update December 17 @ 9pm Pacific: He's lost for the SECOND TIME TODAY! HELP!

 

P.P.P.P.S. Update December 17 @ 9:15pm Pacific - Found! Now I can rest easy. Good night!

 

P.P.P.P.P.S. Update December 18 @ 9:30am Pacific - Lost again!

@Mongskee You have to find him in a different post on the community! Peruse the boards for a while...

@Ahmer_Shah And @Pandian - nice try! But you need to find him elsewhere in the community - poke through the other boards! 🙂

Kind of a big deal

OK, I give up. Where ever you hid him @CarolineS you outsmarted me.

 @Adoos I think you got it! Nicely done.

 

@CarolineS that's not in the product and tech discussion... 😞

Yes, @Adoos found him!! And, shoot, I guess he was extra clever and hid outside the Product and Tech Discussions. Sneaky fellow.

Getting noticed

Nice work @Adoos! Passed over that guy a few times because I wasn't in the right category!

He does like CMNO things.

Sorry @VincentPanico - MV gnome was very clever and hid in an unexpected spot!! (also known as: Caroline forgot where she hid the gnome 'cause she was trying to respond to things on her phone during kid dinner :-P)

Well, that was fun @CarolineS:

Hardly seems fair to say "go look in these forums" then "oh surprise! you should have been looking elsewhere!"...

@Sam_Clements - my bad, 100%. I was trying to do too much stuff on my phone! (Should I admit that? Maybe not. Oh well :-)) I bet MV gnome will hide an extra time to make up for it 🙂

When can we start looking for the next one?

@bdzent - RIGHT NOW! He's lost again!

@Sam_Clements - as I anticipated, MV gnome seems extra-restless tonight. He's lost again!
