A pretty good month for flash, I don't disagree with any of the tops this month either which is rare.

I'm hoping Luis will get the user of the year award again, even if it's two years in a row, he deserves it more than any of us other members right now. It'd be pretty cool to see someone from the Wi/Ht forum winning it this year too, since the majority of the most helpful users I see are from over there. I've honestly got no idea who's going to win, though.

I feel the same way, however it's not much of a suprise at all, that series has thousands of fanboys (barely any of which are over the age of nine) of which vote five on it every single day they see it.

Meet n Fuck shouldn't be in that list in my opinion :/

Spiderpowers for Christmas was not an amazing animation, but was the most Christmassy animation made with giant ammounts of effort. Fourteen minutes of animation and music. It is hands down the most underrated Christmas animation. So there:

BAM.
That's my gem.

Anyway, seems all the winners deserved it, except Meet'n'Fuck
Let's just hope that doesn't win anything else ever :D

Also, Tom, could I bribe you to get User of the Year?

I totally agree with this. Dom Fera clearly worked his ass off on this particular submission, not that any of the artists didn't. However, it was such a unique submission with all of the work he put into writing the songs. HILARIOUS songs at that.
A gem indeed.

Awesome, I voted for all those top five winners in movies.

And... Meet n' Fuck in the top five games and runner ups aswell?
Gimme a break, seriously.

Otherwise nice list this time. I feel sad though, that the Pixelmas Collab didn't get a higher place.

...Who even votes for that Meet n' Fuck stuff? Seriously.

Meet 'n Fuck definatly didn't deserve to come in the top five, let alone the top 20. I'm suprised that people who have been visiting NG for that long would vote on it. It seems stupid.

I think Last Minute Shopper should have been in the top five movies, I loved the film noir style intergrated with Christmas. People are probably gonna shoot me for this, but I'm not sure if Adam Philips entry should be in the top five. Yeah, the animation was flawless, and I loved it, but it was just so short. I think something tlike Last Minute Shopper deserved It's place.

The Day Keanu Stood Still shouldn't even be in the the top 100. It was bollocks. And My piece was in it :3

Meet'n'fuck? You guys are douche begs.
I think Tom should have the ability to veto ridiculous stuff, stupid democracy.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GIVE PEOPLE THE RIGHT TO CHOSE, THEY JACK OFF TO STREET RACING AND SANTA. Shame on you, 2,000 active users of the month.

Thanks for the info Tom :)

Congratulations to the winners.

I'm looking forward to seeing who is in the running for the Best of 2008 and then the winners for the year overall.

Basically it's a random user who's deposited his experience at some point during the month. And since there's like a billion of them it's a pretty tough shot.
