And the next one is up straight away!

4) Forum charity event of the year

This category delivered our clearest winner... and that's no surprise when you consider how cool it was.

Congratulations to...

Sick Kids Save Point

Cheeky and the guys did an amazing job playing games for 24 hours in order to raise cash for a cool children's charity. Excellent stuff and this award is excellent recognition for that achievement :toot: .


I particularly enjoyed the live streamed podcast :toot:

>>> LIVE SHOW EDIT! <<<

You're spot-on, Lime! Are You a Master Mario Maker?, run by Cheeky Devlin, really was (and is!) a teremendous GR initiative, bringing lots of folk into the Mario world to build and play!

AYAMMM? was runner-up in the Forum Event of the Year voting and I had meant to highlight that. Well done, Cheeky!

Moving on, we now have a massively well-contested category. I'm sure that, like me, you were amazed at just how many rafting threads were started during the year!

6) Thread that most shocked you by how a GRcadian nearly lost his life whilst rafting

In the end, there was one stand-out thread... one which made many of us question the safety of rafting and, indeed, the danger that the pastime can bring into our lives...

BUT! Before we announce the winner, we're going to take a short break. It's time to get up out of your seat and move your feet!

Now! Live! It's Herbie Hancock with the legendary - LEGENDARY! - Rockit!

Get bouncing! BOUNCE IT!

Thank you, Mr Hancock! That was incredible!

Right, back to the awards... and the winner is...

No1 Final Fantasy Fan for his Just got capsized during a raft race! thread!

A truly memorable thread that boasted 14 (fourteen!) pages packed with danger, safety failures, unthinking heroism and possible death. It's certainly a thread that I'm going to go back and read when I'm back under the covers tonight! :toot: .

After The Watching Artist :wub: .

Well done, No1FFF!

It's nice to have a wee giggle sometimes... we all like something to take us away from life's constant battles. Horrible, terrible situations like the Scalebound thread discussions.

And this was your chance to say just who makes you laugh the most!

7) The GRcadian who has made you laugh the most

And the person who creates the most splits in our collective sides is...

Moggy!

You're the guy who makes lots of GRcadians snort! multiple times each day! Congratulations, dude :toot: .

8) Robot of the Year ( :wub: )

I had started to have doubts about this category as... well... I hadn't meant it to be mean. Well, not much, anyway. But then I thought... robots have hard shells and won't mind anyway :toot: .

So our winner is...

HSH!

You're GRcade's bestest robot-y pal, dude! I think it's your, uhm, logical, un-bending approach that sealed the deal. We all know that, under that hard exterior, you have a heart of... uhm... something.

Err... something good :wub: . Congratulations!

In this category we had a valiant runner-up... Fade, who gained votes for his seemingly in-human gaming skills. Well played, machine-o-bloke!

Wow! We're racing through the awards now... up to the Mighty No 9! ( :dread: ).

9) Most "I'm excited!" GRcadian of the year

Okay, in this category we had multiple (MULTIPLE!) people gain a single vote. But, in reality, there is one true "I'm excited!" person in GR. One who gets *constantly* excited. One who often just posts "I'm excited! :toot: ".

Yes! I'm wildly enthused to announce our most excited GRcadian as being...

Super Dragon 64

:toot: .

Phew! I don't know about you, but all this frivolity is really starting to steam things up! Perhaps it's time to burn off some of that energy in a productive way?

Yes! Let's get onto the dancefloor again!

Image

Look who it is! Only one of the greatest groups EVER!

Welcome to Kraftwerk! I want them to press my buttons right now... and I'm going to let them! Here's my calculator!

Wow. Wow. Those Kraftwerk guys really know how to get the crowd moving.

Even though we're all now just one step from heaven, it's time to get back to the awards.

Image

10) GRcadian who has left and you'd most like to see return

It's always (well, nearly always :shifty: ) upsetting when folk leave GR... for whatever reason. Disagreements, bad vibes, disappointments, tough times... no matter what the reason, it's terribly sad.

The person who we really want to see return to GR is Mockmaster.

Mocky, man, we've got tears in our eyes. And not just because of my totes ace script.

We all hope that you're well and come back, dude.

And then we can offer you our...

Okay, let's get the mood back to PLEASURE-PLUS!

11) GRcadian you're most glad to see has returned

Building on the previous award, this one is for someone who has returned to GR! It's always nice to see that folk can walk back into the bar, even if we sometimes have a disagreement over the bill.

The person who GRcadians are most pleased to see back on the scene is...

...Ad7 and LewisD!

Yes, we have joint-winners!

Many GRcadians love experiencing Ad's legendary enthusiasm for life, and now we can continue to do so forever! [Please note: Eating crisps is now banned when using GRcade. Thank you.].

Equally, the crowd roared when LewisD arrived back on the scene, after taking time out to shoot his load at every opportunity! [Lewis has got into shooty-shooty guns, I believe].
