Lets just steer away from all of that mainly out of respect for Jonny's thread.

He added quite a few, and scrapped quite a few too. Thought it was quite well-rounded out, overall. Sure he didn't add every single idea, but I don't think that "Sexiest User" would have gone done all that smoothly.

unlike a delicious instant vanilla protein shake.

I was meaning to do that, but that was a resolution that literally only lasted about thirty seconds. So if I vote for like, a dog for "Favourite Artist", I accept full responsibility but I also think it was funny and totally worth it.

Certain categories ended up getting removed because of certain issues......
But I completely forgot to add "Sexiest Art Reg", my bad :C

although I understand that you wanna keep this a positive list, it could've used something like

best in taking critique & worst in taking critique, although the outcome of the latter wont be much of a surprise.

I got rid of the negative and insulting categories specifically because I don't want more bullshit and drama happening in the forum. There's been too much of it as is, and I don't want to unnecessarily cause more.

No.

Nope, nuh, absolutely not.

Don't start this bullshit, Template. You have no idea how horribly, horribly well in can screw up the good-natured intent of these awards. Vote exactly how you want, from your own subjective standpoint. If a threads been helpful from your perspective even if it was utterly useless from everyone else's, vote for it anyway.

Do not any under circumstances try to coerce or guilt other people's votes. It never ends well.

there's enough of that awful, awful approach in the BBS awards

I'm going to have to agree with Lintire here.
While I do appreciate the sentiment behind it, in no way should anyone try to sway other's votes. The whole thing is subjective and I think everyone should have their own opinions regardless of what other's say.

Did you have any other categories in mind? (Seems rather short)

Nope, just the 12 categories.
Up until this year, it has always been 10 categories, but I did some remodeling since I'm now the one who runs them. Sure it's not as many as the General forum BBS awards, but then again, we're not like them and nor do I want negative categories.

Knoc, you're way too damn cynical about everything.
Maybe spend more than just a few days here and there (over the span of the year) in the forum and then you wont just leave most of the voting areas blank.

It was a joke, it's probably hard to tell when I'm kidding, so you get the wrong impression of me, yup, and a small rebuttal in regards to whether or not I'm here for a few days out of the year... I just don't log in when I read. I've had a couple months when I haven't been able to check up, but I've been watching (ooooh creepy) but like always I usually just check threads I've always followed or things that seem interesting.

Kinda presumptuous of you but let's not argue. Point is, it was a joke. Maybe I need to be more of a regular to make jokes so I don't bruise egos.

@Knocturne - I'm presuming because you did the same thing last year with the voting. You voted for 3 categories and left the rest blank, and once again you made a sour remark in the discussion thread. You may say it's a joke, but when you do the same thing twice, I don't take it as such.

@KaDoYuu - Put your votes in the thread

My preliminary choices here, but I'm waiting to post in the voting thread. I'd love some help with remembering options.

Favourite Artist's Style
I'm interpreting this as "most unique" since otherwise Favorite Artist, Favorite Artist's Style, and Favorite Showcase thread are all the same question.
Test, Tre, Lintire, & Jessepants all have fiercely unique styles I admire.

Most Improved Artist
Help. Who improved this year?

Most Underrated Artist
Oh gods i don't know. Lint undervalues himself, as we've recently established, but no one else does.

Best Newcomer
Moors? Who else is new?

Most Helpful Poster
Luwano. He's super nice and patient, even when the person he is talking to is as dumb as a bag of rocks.

Best Critic
Lintire. His crits always brighten my day.

Best Art Regular
Lintire, I guess. He's well rounded in terms of arting a lot, giving good crits, and being generally involved rather than just lurking in the background.

Most Missed Regular
Occluded. Miss him a lot, really.

Most Fun Thread
Uh. There was the copterphant thread, the hamface thread, the M&A Monday thread, the bob ross thread, a bunch of whore threads, a bunch of minimally successful choose your own adventure threads, and the pokemanz thread. Any others?
As much as I love dicks, I refuse to vote for Pokemon.

Most Helpful Thread
Hate to pimp my own thread, but I can't think of any alternatives. Anyone got any ideas?

Oh, maybe Artists! Tell me about Yourself.

Favourite Showcase Thread
Any of my top six, I don't know. Artwise, Ne7ers, Captain, Tre, Test, Jessepants, Lintire.

Favourite Artist
Uhhhh. I lovehate you all. Ne7ers only posted in his thread a few times this year, but I love his work so much I'm picking it anyway. I think. Maybe.
Lots of skill and he's not afraid to experiment.
