It's that time of year again, folks. That's right. It's time for the Newgrounds BBS awards. We've been doing this since 2003 when @Dobio started the greatest circlejerk of all time -- and @Little-Rena has no plans of stopping the tradition.
It's really simple. There are a few different categories. All you need to do is select a nominee for each category. Once the Nomination Stage is complete, this thread will end and a new voting thread will appear. Then you will be presented with atleast two different users for each category (the users who received the most nominations in this thread) and then we will find out once and for all who the best users of 2020 are.
- You can only post in this thread once. This includes alts. Discussion belongs in the discussion thread - https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1459407
- Don't nominate yourself. Trying to nominate yourself will only show everyone else what a loser you are.
- Try to nominate a user for each category. If you leave more than three categories blank, your votes might not be counted.
- You can nominate one user for more than one category.
- Discussion belongs in the discussion thread. Not here.
Also keep in mind:
- These nominations are for January 2020 to present. Think of nominees who fit these categories for this particular year.
- This thread will be closed sometime on Saturday, December 10th. Submit your nominations before this day. After I make a post calling for the end of the nominations, no more nominations will be counted, even if the thread is not locked yet. On the same day, a thread will then be made to vote for the winner in each category.
- Ties will be broken by the magic of coin flips, and that means I will lose a lot of money on the floor, because I am not good at tossing.
Here are the categories:
User of the Year
Who has gone above, and beyond the call of being a Newgrounder? Who has stood out, as a God amongst men? Who has used their time on the BBS for good, and not for evil? The winner, of this category will be gifted a 1 years subscription to Newgrounds!
In the event that the winner is already a supporter, the prize will go to 2nd, then 3rd, after that, it shall pass between winners of each category until a non-supporter is found.
This user's posts always make you smile. I expect to see only my name here, everyone knows I have the best jokes.
Biggest Attention Whore
This user is completely self-centered and tries to make every thread into a discussion about them. This award is also known as the @Wegra award.
I Miss Yew
This user stopped posting this year and you really want them back. If you tag them enough, maybe they will return.
The Newcomer Award
This user is the least awful '19er of all. They don't need to be good. They just need to be better than the rest. So vote that one guy who signed up this year.
Never Logs Off
This user always seems to be posting. You are convinced that they don't actually sleep. If no one wins this award automatically goes to @TomFulp who is getting a fresh influx of traffic with each social media site deciding to go more PG.
This user is always kind and helpful. Even when everyone else is being a complete asshole, they always lend a hand.
This user makes the best photoshops in all of the BBS. Their 'shooping skills are unmatched. All furries are banned from this category.
This moderator fights to keep the Newgrounds BBS clean, and still manages to remain well-liked by all. In the event of a tie, I shall award this to myself, because I make the best icons.
This moderator is the opposite of Best Moderator. They seem to spend all of their time torturing users and probably even banned you once and you never forgot about it so you're going to show them who's boss by voting for them here. In the event of a tie, all the moderators will win the award, because BOOOOO!
The Stop Posting Award
This user posts too much. You're sure that their posting history is larger than the full text content of Wikipedia, and at least 27% more annoying. If you vote for me, I will feel insulted, and put a pox upon your house.
This user makes posts that you look forward to reading. They are the hero that the BBS needs. And no, it's not @P-Bot.
This user makes the posts that you don't even read because you value your eyesight. There should only be one true winner here.
Imagine something like the dovahkiin1994 Saga, the introduction of the voice acting forum, the sirtom93 incident, or any other historic BBS moment -- except that it happened this year. What was this year's biggest event? Maybe one round of parody threads gave you a good giggle?
The overall best thread created this year. Include the title and a link. If you say this thread, I will be disappointed in your abilities, but also thankful that I got a vote.
That one user who always has a gif for any event, and uses it, but they use this power responsibly! Also, it's GIF not JIF.
The user whom is weird, is quite mysterious and weird across the community, no one could really explain on what made the user so weird, posts weird posts, and the user's behavior, who knows of what happened to them...
Awarded to users that haven't been around for a while but made their grand return back to the BBS.
Worst Thread of the Year
The thread that made you go oof.
Least Stable User
For the users who post the most confusing and/or out of nowhere stuff, where it's almost impossible to predict what they'll post or how they'll react. Users who seem to be completely out of their mind most times.
If you wish to add a comment as to why you nominated someone for an award, you are free to do that, but if you want to discuss the awards, and nominations, please take it to the discussion thread! Additionally, thanks to everyone who gave ideas to the categories!
