okay, so mostly the same categories you all know & love, with some twists & new ones i might try out. list your nominations now - we're looking to start up around thanksgiving weekend (or right after), which is just over a week from now, that should be more than enough time!

 

Tentative awards:

  • Most Valuable Poster
  • smartest
  • funniest
  • best looking guy/gal
  • biggest bitch (formerly villain/d-bag/etc)
  • best mod
  • best thread
  • best couple
  • rookie of the year/best newjack
  • most helpful (formerly nicest/MH lifetime achievement award)
  • hondo's underdog
  • best troll...
  • most improved? - for members who weren't active/you didnt notice before this year
  • best thread hijack - not sure if we can get upwards of 5 of these, just a thought

 

if you've got other categories, we'll take them under consideration as well - meantime, post your noms!

 

first person to nominate themselves for everything gets a -1. it's still going to happen.

  • Best thread of the decade
  • Funniest moment/post of the decade
  • Best looking guy/gal of the decade

nah, i'm done with most missed. it was cool years ago, but it kinda goes against the direction i wanna steer this ship in these days.

 

Most talented

 

this we've done, and could again, it's just run into trouble in years past by definition of "talent". artistic? athletic? other (mal's trophies, logan's achievements, etc)? i'm not against it, and i certainly don't mean to take these things too seriously, just never clear on this one.

 

  • MVP of the decade
  • Biggest bitch of the decade
  • Best thread of the decade
  • Funniest moment/post of the decade
  • Best looking guy/gal of the decade

 

these ideas aren't bad either. i think funniest defaults on that time scale but i could be wrong - best looking i dont know bout either but, but best thread, MVP, biggest bitch and some others "of the decade"...i think you're onto something here man! what/who would you guys nominate for those, though?

Why not all of the above? Or anything else that people think takes talent. I say just we should nominate the person and their talent. This'd also help promote old threads, for example how many newbies know Mh is an amazing pianist?

Not sure why we can have hottest of the year but not the decade?

If we were to do decade awards, I think it should be the winner's of the past...

 

I worked somewhere that the nominees for employee of the year were all the employees of the month...

  • Most Valuable Poster - JZA, NZA, 'baytor
  • smartest - Tulip, LL
  • funniest - 'baytor, JZA, axels
  • best looking guy/gal - Bindu, special K
  • biggest bitch (formerly villain/d-bag/etc) - I'm going to throw out some commentary here. I know you changed the 'villain' thing because Arch didn't do anything particularly villainous and, let's be honest, it's kind of an asshole thing to do to someone year after year. But I propose that Arch is, indeed, the most well written KIND of villain. He isn't maliciously evil, he has genuine conviction in his ideals and truly believes that they are for the best for everyone. He's Magneto. He's fuckin' Team Rocket! He says "to protect the world from devestation", but at the end of the day, he really just doesn't think that poor kid rightfully earned a free Pikachu.
    Anyway, I vote for Lorelei :D
  • best thread - Hondos pictures we gone and done, xtranormal
  • best couple - Tulip & JZa
  • best troll... - gene shallit, juggalo pete
  • most improved? - Mortiis

...well, (ASC) im not against talented if we see enough noms on here. as i'm getting a fellow hondonian to bang out the award banners, i dont wanna have a bunch where there's only 2 or 3 noms, so if there's interest here, i'm down.

 

in that vein: makes no sense to do binary awards for best of 2011 and best of decade, yeah? perhaps we should do just the latter? of course, as aarty pointed out, members of the past (some not even currently active) might come out on top over people who put in a good effort this year...gotta flesh this idea out, but yeah, i'm down with emaonne's idea: if we're calling it our 10th anniversary awards, maybe it should be for all the marbles!

Obviously any category I didn't nominate someone else for I feel should go to me. Obviously.

I think there should be a 'Friendliest' award...and it should go to MetalHeart
