By which I mean...

So, those are the main categories. There is also a Super Special Awesome Bonus Award for The Best Quotation, which has just three nominations. Each nomination is accompanied by a short comment from the forumite responsible, hopefully putting it into some kind of context.

QUOTATION 1
"Well done on removing the heart of the community."
-MCN

MCN wrote:To put it in context, I was angry. Angry at the sudden removal of TCRT without prior warning, or a chance to adjust to the idea of having a major thread being removed. And I believe that TCRT and TMT are important threads for the community. After all, a community is not just built on the serious stuff. Every good community has somewhere to chill out and chew the fat. That's what TCRT did. To remove that, was to remove in important part of what made GRcade such a decent community, in my opinion.


QUOTATION 2
"This isn't up for debate guys. We're not having a mass wank thread, get over it."
-Garth

Garth wrote:Mass wank threads are bad, mmkay.


QUOTATION 3
"I'm going to ban the living gooseberry fool out of you."
-Eighthours

Eighthours wrote:Er... official comment? Hmmm. Let me get back to you on that one.


So, there we have it! All nominees should be incredibly proud that they have reached this point in the proceedings, but it doesn't end there! I'll be needing your votes for who wins the glittering prizes!

Image
SAMPLE AWARD

Simply copy and paste the form below and put your votes in the correct boxes, then PM me. Names in the first box earn 3 points, names in the second earn 2 and names in the third box earn 1. So, for example, if you voted the following in the Most Entertaining award...

[1] Forumite A
[2] Forumite X
[3] Forumite 8hrs


...Forumite A would be awarded the most points (3), while Forumite X and Forumite 8hrs would earn 2 and 1 points respectively. The forumite with the most points when voting closes is the winner! For the Super Special Awesome Bonus Award for The Best Quotation, you can only vote for one quotation.

Voting will be open FOR THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE - due to changing plans and whatnot I don't know when I'll have time to count the votes, but rest assured that I will and that I will give adequate notice before voting closes.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you support The First Annual GRcade Awards!

Thank you so much.

Incidentally, there are a couple of auxillary awards I should announce:

Pacman wins the Tony Blair Award For Services To Sycophancy for nominating me (and only me) in the Forumite of the Year category.

Memento Mori wins the Attention Whore Award for nominating himself in every category, even the bad ones.

MCN wins the Just Because You Appreciate It, That Doesn't Make It Okay Award for nominating himself for Biggest Spammer.


Cheers bruv. Vote away!

Jonathan, I hate to be a bore, but you need to change that yellow text. My tired old eyes can't read it!
