the first annual UM awards

30 posts in this topic

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?

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...

Voice of SaRuMaN: Cough, ahem!

...with your permission of course thumbsup.gif

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.

I think everyone will get a vote. It would be the fairest thing.

Suggestions for award categories can now be posted Here.

I've moved all the existing suggestion posts over to there.

snuffy, it might be an idea after SaRuMaN sets up a thread to have folks nominate others for selected catagories, then set up a poll for each and a time limit for voting. After the limit, he/she with the most votes in that catagory wins.

Just a thought. But I like the idea.

If nominated I will not run,

if elected I will not serve.

Yep, after we get the categories sorted out. How long should the time period be? We want to give everyone a decent amount of time to get their votes in.

I think a week would probably be a good time scale, perhaps one week for nominations and then one week for the voting.

I just had a thought(No Really!) When it comes time to nominate people for categories,is there a way it can be done anonymously? You don't want the person you nominated for most annoying to hate you. Or the person you nominate for sexiest to think you're a stalker...

That's a good idea, but I'm not real sure how to go about it. I wouldn't want the person who I nominated for most annoying to know I nominated them either.
