    Alright everyone, it's that time of year again!

    Though this year, we're gonna start a little bit fresh. While I could just use the same old list of awards that I've done for the last few years, I'm going to give a week or so here for any and all revisions you want to see.

    Any categories you want to add? Any you want to remove? Now is the time to voice

    Last years awards are listed HERE, so feel free to look them over and make your decisions!

    We did that one year, and we had like two nominations. But if people want it, I'd be game.

    We could add Best/Worst GR Staff. Dan is doing so good at being the community manager, but would it be able to standoff with Nick Tan's Haiku reading?

    Maybe just best. No one's doing anything bad enough to be dubbed "worst" - that would be harsh!

    I cant think of any awards. Include chat awards this year? Best Chatter? Since it's been more involved.

    GR has a bunch of guys with cool extracurriculars:

    Most Creative/Best Art

    or something to that effect could work

    Toss Out:

    Most Annoying Poster
    Best Returning Poster
    Best Taste in Games
    Worst Taste in Games
    Best Veteran

    Toss In:

    Best Topic
    Worst Topic
    Multiplayer
    Creativity

    I would like to add a set of Chatter awards some day, but I don't think enough people would vote to make it worthwhile. We could just have a Worst Chatter award to shame people, though. Always in for shaming.

    I think you need to add:

    Best FrozenBacon

    The winner of that reward should get a $10,000 cash prize as well.

    How awkward would it be if you didn't win it :)

    I like the suggestions so far, they capture the full essence of what awards should be: completely meaningless and just for the show.

    Keep em coming 8)

    The best comeback kid

    Lots of old GR member came back this year. It would be nice if we could give them a award or something.

    I think what De-Ting posted is pretty much all we need. I would, however, keep best returning poster, since we had an influx of old fogies hitting the forums again for a week or two.

    Get rid of returning poster, since those who returned quickly left again.
