The First Annual GRcade Awards
Nomination Thread

Our fair GRcade is almost one year old, and what better way is there to celebrate this wonderous occasion than with an awards ceremony celebrating the things that make this community so unique and exciting?

To nominate, simply PM me your completed voting form (spoiler, below) and I will collate the votes. For the Forumite Awards section, your first nomination will be worth 5 points, your second nomination worth 4 points, and so on. For the Forum Awards section, your first nomination will be worth 3 points, then two points, then one point. Obviously, the nominations with the most points will be the ones that go through to the final voting round! Don't worry if you can't fill in all the spaces, just leave some of them blank if you can't think of enough.

Please use this voting form - any PMs that do not use this form are likely to be ignored! Oh, and feel free to discuss your nominations in this thread, I'll only be bumping it otherwise!

All the categories and a little explanation are listed below.

Voting for nominations will be open until the weekend of August 15th (actual time to be confirmed). That's just over two weeks! So get thinking, and get nominating!

THE AWARDS

FORUMITE AWARDS

Forumite of the Year
The most prestigious award of them all, Forumite of the Year is awarded to that person who you believe has made the biggest and best contribution to our illustrious forum so far, whether through their unceasingly kindly nature, their effervescent personality or their moderating prowess. Who deserves this most coveted of prizes? Only you can decide.

Most Entertaining Forumite
Whose posts entertain you the most? Who makes you laugh every time? Who can turn a dull thread into a true event?

Most Missed Forumite

Some people say that time heals all wounds... these people are clearly idiots. Whether cutting their losses following the great GR Exoddus, or leaving here due to differences in opinion or problems with the management, we have lost some fine forumites over the last 12 months. Who presence have you missed the most?

The 'I Wish They Would Post More' Award (AKA Most Underappreciated)
Many posters fly under the radar, maybe contributing here and there but never capturing the attention of the majority. Who do you wish would post more often?

Best Newcomer
As hard as it is to believe, there are many members here who never posted on GR. This award is for the new blood that keep the forum diverse and interesting.

Most Useful/Helpful Forumite
We're not just a load of anonymous nobodies, intent on flaming and trolling and being generally belligerent - some of us are quite nice. Celebrate those members that never fail to lend a helping hand!

Best Username Award
Choosing the correct name is something of an art, with several different tactics to finding the best one. Some chose a name and keep it for a long period of time, slowly growing into it and becoming that persona. Others change on a semi-regular basis in the hope that if they through enough gooseberry fool, some of it will stick. Who's username, past or present, do you think is the finest?

Most Obscure/Oddest Forumite
Voted for by you, the public, this award celebrates the weird and whacky people that add a certain je ne sais quoi to our burgeoning populace.

Biggest Spammer

Whether an essential part of keeping the forum alive and active or simply an annoyance of epic proportion, the spammer is a key component of GRcade. But, who does it the most?

FORUM AWARDS

Best Forum Game
We have enjoyed many different games on our forum this year, including AYAW?, The Eliminator, Forumite Forfeits, even that pirate one that had a really long name. Simply put, which forum game have you enjoyed the most?

Most Memorable GRcade Event
We haven't been without controversy here on GRcade. What is your defining moment in our short yet exciting history?

Best Thread (GGC)
Simple, this. What has been your favourite GGC thread?

Best Thread (Non-GGC)

Similarly, what has been your favourite thread elsewhere on the forum?

Best Long-Running Thread

This category is reserved for those threads that have spawned over 30 pages and have become somewhat legendary around these parts. Whether you like listening, watching or chatting (amongst other things) there's a thread for it. Which is the best?

Quote Of The Year
There have been some corkers. What's been your favourite? Perhaps the winner can Celebrate Good Times Come On.

Biggest Facepalm Moment
Everybody likes a good facepalm moment, but which one would have got Picard, Bill Kim et al. hitting their forehead with the most force?

Best / Worst Meme

Love them or hate them, memes are here to stay. A double award, which meme deserves a place in the hallowed halls of Internet folklore? And which one should be cast into the depths of ignorance? Nominate here!

Also, if any kind soul is up for it, we'll be needing some nice artwork and sigs to go with these awards. I would do it, but I don't think my Paint 'masterworks' are quite prestigious enough.

Nominated. Some categories I didn't completely fill in, and some I missed altogether, simply because nothing really stood out to me to enter. I hope you don't mind.

reactant mob driven > Rogueleader.
Rogueleader has too much class, he's a good story teller and has his whole schtick going on. He's better suited for 'funniest forumite'. reactant on the other hand is just bonkers, like he's genuinely insane.

Anyhow I'm not voting, as I'd have to leave too many spaces blank :fp:

I'm not sure who here counts as a new member. Those that never posted on GR? I'm not sure I can think of any....

I have no idea who any newcomers are, this is what happens when you only lurk on the old GR and have no idea who was and who wasn't a member or one who posted often.

I left that one completely blank, to be honest. Although, thinking about it, G-Ratasaurus Rex is definitely a brand new member. Although he did get himself banned pretty quickly.
