PDA

View Full Version : The 2004 Annual PD Forum Awards * The Nominees Are In!!



Hicks

Since Pacerfanforlife (aka PFFL), the original host of the Forum Awards, is no longer among us, I will assume his role of host to organize the annual PD Forum Awards.

Here are the categories:

Most Valuable Poster - This is who you think was the best overall poster this season. Who made the best posts? Who had the most insight?

Best Arm-Chair Coach - Who demonstrated the most knowledge about the game this season? Who knew how to break down the plays and the strategies, and come up with his own?

Rookie Poster of the Year - We had a lot of new posters this year. Who was the best of the bunch? Who was the MVP of the new guys?

Most Improved Poster - This award goes to someone who has gone from lurker or light poster, and really come into his own to become a regular contributing member to the forum.

Most Humorous Poster - Who do you think was the funniest poster this season?

Most Pessimistic Poster - Who had the most gloom and doom? Who knew back in October we'd lose?

Most Fanatical Poster - Who's the most fanatical Pacer fan? Who's done the most to show his Pacer Pride?

Best Foreigner - Who was the best poster here that roots for bad guys?

Poster You Love to Hate - Pretty self-explanatory. Who do you most love to hate?

Most Argumentative Poster - This can be either who you feel argues the most, or who you argue with the most.

HOW THIS WORKS:

From now until next weekend, you can send me a PM with the names of those you wish to nominate. Anyone is welcome to send who they feel should be nominated for all categories. You can send up to 10 names per category if you wish. This is not the vote to see who wins. This is to determine who gets nominated.

Keeping with tradition, the host is exempt from any and all awards. So don't vote for me; I am ineligible.

Next Sunday, I will take the top 5 most voted names for each category, and on Monday will announce the Official 2004 Annual PD Forum Award Nominees.

Once the Nominees have been announced, I will make a poll for the first category, giving everyone 24 hours to submit their vote for the winner. Then, the winner will be declared, and I will then create a new poll for the next category, and we'll repeat this every weekday (don't want to lose votes because it's the weekend) until we've ran through all the categories.

The time to submit who you want to be nominated begins right now. And don't forget to send in multiple names for each category! The idea is to trim it DOWN to 5 people per category, so don't be shy with names!

Seriously Hicks, there will be no Poster with the Best Avatar/Signature Award?

Bummer. :(

It is a lot more difficult than you might think. I had to go down the memberlist and even then it was tough.

Well, if we're really gonna just throw out obscure categories, I say we should have a Most Pacemate-Obsessed Fan. I'd have thought I'd have a pretty good shot at it, until I saw about 60% of MagicRat's recap was Pacemate pictures. :shrug: :p

Well, the official breakdown is as follows.....

Game or related 60.63%
Pacemates 15.75%
Wacky Comedy 23.62%

Since your brain processed it at about 60% Pacemates, I'll make sure to put you on my ballot for "Most Pacemate Obsessed"....... :P

Of course, I would've left out Pacemates entirely :rolleyes: ;) , but I didn't want any complaints from TheSauceMaster. I'm still waiting for his post requesting all Pacemates pictures with "Girls, Girls, Girls" by Motley Crue :rockon2: for the music......

Either way, I'm going to hunt you all down, drag Peck with me, yell "Brad Miller is a sissy girl!", and leave you to deal with him. :devil:

Hicks also see a problem with the Rookie award because this place is still new, and so many weren't at the other place.

Jay, sorry I don't consider you a rookie, won't nominate you for that category

MSA2CF
06-05-2004, 12:09 PM
I remember my first post like it was yesterday. :laugh:

It was titled: "Best Nickname For Bender?"

And the first to reply: UncleBuck

:cool:

Hicks
06-05-2004, 12:15 PM
Yeah, some people are hitting a snag with the Rookie part. The way some have gotten around that is to simply throw out some names of people that came here the same time as they did.

Everyone else is likely from IS.

Unclebuck
06-05-2004, 12:23 PM
Hicks, please let us know if there is a category where you don't have enough nominees. I had trouble coming up with anyone for Rookie, and Most improved.

Hicks
06-05-2004, 12:28 PM
UB, I have only one category where I have only 5, but that is enough anyway so if no more come in it's still going to work out (I'm cutting them all down to 5 for when we vote).

The rest have a lot more.

How about Favorite Poster Alias?

I can't stop laughing when I see the name, "blanket."

:rotflmao:

It reminds me of Michael Jackson's kid everytime.

Okay, maybe I'm the only one who found that funny. :neutral:

There they are. Voting begins tomorrow, for Most Valuable Poster.

I'd like to thank whoever nominated me in both categories. As I see my name in these two groups, I am reminded of a couple of quotes that are near and dear to my heart:

The person who doesn't step on anybody else's toes is standing still.

and...

Love me, hate me, but spare me your indifference.

I always like to say that if two people always agree on everything, then one of them isn't necessary. (Although Jay's_Wife@Section222 isn't a big fan of this approach.) :D
