Welcome... to the official voting thread for the GRcade Awards 2016. Lets get straight to it. Oh, uhm, yeah... ":toot:".

The awards are geared around the forum; the people, the events, the "characters" and the chat. They are, of course, tongue-in-cheek and, whilst occasionally mildly offensive, all to be taken with a smile and a shrug of the shoulders.

> Simply mull over your choice for each of the categories below and post them in this thread by midnight on Friday 30 December. There are a lot... but you have a whole month... and...
> If you don't want - or can't be arsed - to vote for some of the categories, that's fine
> You can edit your choices at any time prior to the closing time

I will tot up the entries and present the results early in January (date TBC). There may be more than one winner in each category; depends how I feel, really. The results thread will undoubtably be highly camp and just the thing to warm you up on a cold January night. Oh! Needless to say, as your host I am unable to be nominated for any of the categories. So you can't put me forward as arse of the year.

Have fun, GRcadians!

Joer Eats Food was clearly the highlight of the year. I should probably update that to be fair. I've eaten loads of stuff since then!

Was that this year? That's actually one of the things that I thought was last year. :lol:

I will vote at some point but I think N1FFF rafting thread should win every award. :toot:

Oh wow! It's terrific to see that the votes are already flying in - bravo, guys :toot: .

Just a reminder that I cannot be nominated for any of the awards - just to ensure that I won't face a "he organised it and he won" scenario - even the "bad" ones :lol: . Thanks.

Oh, and for the "Three GRcade technical support people of the year"... looking at the nominations so far, I may have cocked the question up. That "three" winners may expand to more ( :shifty: ).

Thanks again - please keep the deluge of votes incoming - albeit you have a whole month, of course :toot: .

This is nonsense, we'll vote for you & you'll count them, or else.

Plus we are voting in thread. If anybody thinks you have pulled an Eighthours then they can just count up the votes in the thread.
