    Well, it's December. You know what that means, time for snow, santa, and useless best-of-the-year popularity contests. So lets get it on!

    I'm getting this bad boy moving a little early, mostly because I don't know what categories we're going to do. Last year, I just copy-pasted the list from the previous year, but we really need to make some changes. Here's my pre-pre-nomination list idea:

    Forum Awards:
    Most Annoying Poster
    Most Missed Poster
    Funniest Poster
    Most Helpful Poster
    Least Helpful Poster
    Most Respected Poster
    Least Respected Poster
    Biggest Forum Contributor
    Spammer Award
    On Topic Award
    Peacekeeper Award
    Topic King
    Postwhore
    Most Intelligent Posts
    Non Award (least intelligent posts, rarely makes sense, etc)
    Best Host
    Best Signature
    Worst Signature
    Best Avatar
    Worst Avatar
    Best Veteran
    Worst Poster
    Best Poster

    Out of last year's list, I removed the following categories because no one really applies: Best New Poster, Worst New Poster, Best Young Poster, and Best Returned Poster. I also removed the community rewards part, because no one voted for them last year and no one cares.

    Anyway, the big reason for this is because I need YOU to think of other stuff to put in there instead. Or other things to take out. We aren't on the actual nominations yet, that'll start probably at the end of this weekend.

    I think we should stick some crazyish ones in.

    Like Most Racist and Most Sexist, Most Attractive, Most Likely to be a serial killer....stuff like that.

    Also, Best Veteran? There's only about 3 left :(

    Is it time to pat ourselves on the back already? Sweet! I guess that means I'm the last Best New Poster!!!!
    Maybe add Most Improved or Best New back?

    Edit: Oops, someone else totally leaked my list...bastards.

    Oh no. The GR awards curse has come back to haunt me.
    Seriously though, I like MattAY's idea, specially the "Most likely to be a serial killer."

    EDIT: Bret got it now.

    Funny, I was going to say keep me out of the community votes because after winning it four times in a row someone else needs to so it can be fresh....

    As for new categories, I second, the most imrpoved suggestion.

    Anywho, im saving this for my nominations because im lazy. So yeah, I don't care.

    Most Racist and Most Sexist are hard, since no one here's really either. I like the other two though. I also like the idea of Most Improved, so I think I'll add that too.

    Also, I bolded part of the original post, since SOME PEOPLE can't read.

    I still don't care. So yeah, fuck it. It's up there.

    I also like the Duke Ferris Award, but what would that award entail? Is it like an honorary Oscar or something, or can it be defined as someone who exemplifies leadership qualities and revolutionary ideals?

    I prefer the latter, by the way.

    Yeah, that one's a little depressing.

    The most fun to play with is okay, but my only qualms are how many of us actually play against each other? If there's a good enough amount, that goes in, but if not, then not.

    And the DUKE FERRIS AWARD kind of goes with Biggest Forum Contributor, since only like three people care about the community outside the forum. And comparing posting on the forum to Duke's great achievements is a little blasphemous.

    I really like Worst Taste in Games though, and of course countering it with Best Taste in Game.

    How would we define our best and worst tastes though when most of us have similar tastes to begin with?

    A little bit of both. I think its funny that you commented on it, b/c I was going to nominate you for it - and i kinda had you in mind when I came up with it.

    No one can replace duke, but this should go to the person (veteran) who keeps us coming back. Reviews, Posts, Podcasts, whatever, but to win a forum award they should frequent the board (hence being a veteran). Its like an Oscar/Achievement award.

    Person you'd most like to meet?
    The Partyman?
    The Masturbator? (who you reckon masturbates the most)

    I'm clutching at straws here.
