Rules Reminders

  1. Most important rule: If this is entertaining, we’ll continue to do it. If not, we’ll stop.
  2. Admins and Mods are not eligible for awards.
  3. Nominations will remain secret until voting.
  4. Forumites can nominate anyone except themselves.
  5. Forumites can provide any number of nominations.
  6. It is likely a forumite will be nominated more than once. There are no issues with this; we'll condense the nominee list before the vote.
  7. Leaving the community (including via banning) does not change anything - your nominations are still valid and you can still be a nominee.
  8. Reminders will be sent as we get close to voting.
  9. Before we post the nominees, we'll send messages to let folks know they were nominated.
  10. Badges will pass from the previous year's winners to the new winners (i.e., winners get the badges for one year).
  11. A forumite can win more than one award.
  12. A forumite can win the same award they won the previous year.

It has been two months since the nominations started, and this is just a friendly reminder about them. If you have someone or a thread you want to nominate, do it now, so you don't forget.

It's been a little while, so I thought I'd pop in with another reminder to nominate forumites, threads, etc. for forum awards.

 

Have a better one! cool

I hereby nominate Ronway to be Truth Seeker again as he is, you know, seeking truth all the time and stuff.

He certainly does answer a lot of questions... Even if we don't like the answers! wink

(If you were just kidding, let me know and I'll remove the nomination I just posted in the nomination threadsmiley)

I'd nominate Ronway as PantsSeeker, but we all know that will never happen.


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

Because he wouldn't seek or he wouldn't find? wink

Yes.

And that's the answer I would expect...

 

And nominations are closed!

Congratulations to all the nominees! Voting will be announced soon... (We're not announcing voting on 1-Apr - that's just asking for trouble. wink)
