This is the time of year when we normally do forum awards, right? We missed doing the forum awards last year, but surely we can come up with something this year.

I can do them this year, since I'm active most of the time. And it's just counting votes and posting them

And the last one hosted by Wired, for further reference: http://www.oddworldforums.net/showthread.php?t=19960

Was there a tradition of adding a new category every year? I canít remember but I want to say there might have been.

i was just thinking about this the other day. also, technically, we've actually missed two years of awards. the last awards thread in 2014 was for 2013.

At least I won the best Varrok award. By a small margin, but still an accomplishment, I think.

...I did win that one, right?

Arenít the awards usually done for the previous year? So last yearís awards would have been for 2014, and this yearís for 2015.

whoops sorry you're right, if we have awards this year we will have missed one year (2014), not two years. we didn't have any awards last year.

And that's how Varrok got lost in a cave never to be heard from again. Because he trusted MA.

Not quite.
  • The last thread was posted in January 2014, for the year 2013.
  • The next thread should have been posted early 2015, for the year 2014, but we missed it.
  • The thread after that should be posted around now, for 2015. It hasnít happened yet but if we make one then we wonít have missed it.
Thereís a two-year gap, but weíve only actually missed one year so far.

Wait for STM. This is his job these days. We had everything ready for last year, but everything was waiting on me to record an introduction speech thing - we were taking the award ceremony vibe to the next level and upping the production value. Then my health fell apart, and so did our plans.

STM will probably just tell you guys to do it, but wait to hear what he says because he might have plans already.

Definitely wait for STM. I know he'd already done some work towards this, so I don't want anyone stepping on his toes.

I've still got the template from what I was going to do with Phylum so I'm happy to use that, and I know that you approached me Nate, I'm sorry it's taken a long time to sort anything out but I've been incredibly busy recently.

If people don't mind waiting a couple of weeks I'm more than happy to host again. The biggest problem I have is tallying votes as that takes a long arse time.

e: I've got a couple ideas for a theme this year as well.

Wouldn't it be easier to use Google Docs to make a survey thing and have it tally the votes automatically?

I'll be doing something like that this year, but if you look at the scale of the awards, FA, even that isn't necessarily a simple undertaking and I don't know what the limits of Google Docs are. Anyway, something for me to research.

Google Docs would make it harder to verify who was voting, I think. Doing votes by post is the simplest option and it canít really be faked short of hacking someoneís account.

I also had another username here that was quite popular for about a year or so. For all the wrong reasons.


Unrelated, do any of you guys remember ODDWORLDisTHEbest?

I made my first account when I was 9 years old. That's scary.

I actually remember ODDWORLDisTHEbest. I think I talked to him on Oddchat quite a bit. If I remember correctly, a lot of us here were trying to get him to improve on his grammar and such.
