I have an idea, how about we have an annual awards thingamajig?  It would, sorta kinda, validate the vast amount of time we all waste on this forum each day.  We could have categories, like best moderator, poster of the year, sexiest poster, best thread, member most likely to snap and climb a tower, so on and so forth.  

Of course we'd need Saruman's permission, I'm sure this would be an effort to set up.  But it would be a lot of fun.

What do you think?

Nothing to see here.

I think that's a great idea. And I'd like to be in the running for the most arrogant and annoying member. Can't let your title go uncontested.. thumbsup.gif

Cool idea, we could decide on what awards we would have then start a poll for each one so we can vote for the candidates...

I should be on the run for "Worst English writter of Um" tongue.gif

I think it's a good Idea ! thumbsup.gif  

L'imagination n'est pas le mensonge (Daniel Pennac, Messieurs les enfants).

Sometimes I feel like i'm invisible. there's allways somebody to walk on my feet and to tell me "Sorry, I didn't see you". It's not funny to be a small person. But I'm proud of myself.

(notice I didn't question the arrogant bit)

Sounds like an interesting idea, I don't have any objections thumbsup.gif

We will however need someone to organise it, any volunteers ?

I'd like to nominate myself for everything.  And to prove how annoying I am, I shall circle the globe and poke everyone in the eye. laugh.gif

Of course, we still have to have SaRuMaN's okay.

I'm up for it, I wouldn't suggest something I wasn't willing to help out in.  So, what should the categories be?

What i'll do is add a new subforum for everything to do with this, then we can have as many threads about it as needed, including a thread for category suggestions. I'll get that sorted out in just a moment.

Will everyone be able to vote at the "awards ceremony" or will there be a select panel of judges? whistling2.gif
