View Full Version : The 8th Annual PD Forum Awards - Nominations Thread

02-08-2012, 07:55 PM
Good evening, everyone. It is my honor to announce the commencement of awards season here on Pacers Digest. We are in the midst of an exciting season, with the Blue and Gold currently holding down the 4th seed in the East with a record of 17-7. This is the official nominations thread for the 8th Annual Pacers Digest Forum Awards! Please take this opportunity to honor your fellow posters (no negativity here!). As the organizer of this year’s awards, I’d like to personally thank Trader Joe, avoidingtheclowns, Peck and vnzla81 for their consistent game and post-game efforts. And, of course, I’d like to again express my gratitude to able, Hicks and our other great admins for making PD the preeminent forum for fans of the Indiana Pacers.


Here is the list of awards:

Most Valuable Poster – Awarded to the poster who you believe to be most valuable to the board.

Most Humorous Poster – Awarded to the funniest poster on Pacers Digest.

Best Debater – Awarded to the poster whose arguments are the most convincing.

International Poster of the Year – Awarded to your favorite poster who lives outside the United States.

Best Non-Pacer Fan – Awarded to your favorite poster whose primary loyalties lie with another NBA team.

Sunshiner of the Year – Awarded to the poster who you think was consistently optimistic and hopeful about the team and its players.

Moderate Poster of the Year (NEW) – Awarded to the poster who you think was most level-headed and reasonable during both highs and lows.

Darksider of the Year – Awarded to the poster who you think was least optimistic about the team and its players.

The Post More Often Award – Awarded to the poster who you wish, for whatever reason, would post more often.

Best Arm-Chair Coach – Awarded to the poster who displayed the greatest knowledge of the game of basketball in his or her discussion of the team and its players.

Rookie of the Year – Awarded to the best poster who has joined the board since the last awards season (June 2010). For starters, a list of qualified rookies who have accumulated over 500 posts is included below.

If there are any awards you’d like to see added to this list, please don’t hesitate to state your case.

Here are the rules:

1) Any poster (including our admins) can be nominated for any category, except for those that have been retired from a category or posters that have been banned. Obviously, some awards (Rookie, Non-Pacer Fan, etc.) limit the field of potential nominees. A list of category retirees can be found at the end of this post.

2) Nominations must be submitted via replies to this thread. You may only nominate one poster per category – and please, no self-nominations – but you are not required to make nominations for every category. You may nominate a fellow poster for multiple categories as you see fit. You are strongly encouraged to advocate and campaign for any poster, including yourself, though self-promotion might backfire.

3) The five posters who receive the most nominations in each category will advance to the voting thread for that category. In the event of a tie, the maximum amount of nominees will be expanded to ten.

4) Voting will commence on February 22nd! Voting threads will open at 12 p.m. and close two days later at 7 p.m. Each category will have its own thread and the voting will be conducted via public poll. The person with the most votes wins the award (a majority is not necessary). In the event of a tie, a runoff thread will be created to determine the ultimate victor. If the vote remains tied after a runoff, two winners will be crowned.

5) Be a good sport and have fun – this is not optional.


Category / Retiree:
Best Arm-Chair Coach / thunderbird1245
Best Debater / Naptown_Seth
Best Non-Pacer Fan / DisplacedKnick
Darksider of the Year / Bball
Most Humorous Poster / MagicRat
Most Valuable Poster / Unclebuck

Rookies with 500+ Posts (Note: This is not a complete list of rookies, just those who have over five hundred posts. Quantity doesn’t always equal quality [just look at my post count for proof of that], so please take a look at all the potential nominees by scanning PD’s Members List):
Nuntius, PGisthefuture, yoadknux, Jared Sullinger, mattie, Pacer Fan, Constellations, KingGeorge, Mackey_Rose, ballism, imbtyler, xIndyFan, presto123, Foul on Smits, BringJackBack, troyc11a, LA_Confidential, aaronb, pacer4ever, Really?, Pacersalltheway10, Eleazar, Ms. Piggy, PacersPride, PacerPenguins, Heisenberg, righteouscool, xBulletproof, DemonHunter1105

Please advise on all errors and omissions. Any poster who makes nominations in eight or more categories AND votes in all award races will automatically qualify for a random drawing to win a gift certificate from Amazon.com! Thanks, and good luck to all!

Isn't this too early in the season to do this?

Due to the lockout, the normal off-season awards were missed in 2011. I conducted a poll (http://pacersdigest.com/showthread.php?t=68311) earlier in the year to gauge interest in awards for this year. Unfortunately, the turnout for that poll was very low, but 81% of respondents indicated they would like to begin the awards prior to the All-Star break this year. That 81% also represents 100% of the posters who expressed interest in continuing the tradition.

Most Valuable Poster – if anyone gets more posts read, more posts thanked, or more posts quoted and agreed with than Peck, I don't know who it is.

Best Debater – I always like when Unclebuck gets into a good debate.

International Poster of the Year – I'm going with Nuntius on this one. I always enjoy the kind of international perspective he brings.

Best Non-Pacer Fan – How anyone but KStat could get this, I'm not sure either.

The Post More Often Award – Kemo gets my nomination. I always like his posts, and that awesome disco Grover avatar.

Rookie of the Year – A lot of good candidate here, but for overall contribution to the board, gotta go with pacer4ever

That's all I got for now...I'll try to remember to come back and post noms for the other awards as I read through the Digest.

Also, I'd like to let everyone know that I have not yet been nominated for anything, but that doesn't mean I don't want to be. ;)

I'm nominating keeping in mind the nominations other people have already made. So mine may be a little different.


Most Valuable Poster – xBulletproof. Peck is certainly deserving and gets his kudos elsewhere, so I'll use this as a shout out to a guy who I think makes coherent points and argues them well.

Most Humorous Poster – I'll have to think about this one and edit the post later.

Best Debater – I hate agreeing with the guy on anything, but credit where credit is due: Mackey Rose brings it on the debates.

International Poster of the Year – This is so hard. We have so many great overseas fans. I'll come back to this

Best Non-Pacer Fan – d_c. Gives great perspective from a non-rival team (I believe he's a Warriors fan). Always good insight from him.

Sunshiner of the Year – I have no earthly idea.

Darksider of the Year – vnzla.

The Post More Often Award – ChicagoJ, count55, cordobes

Best Arm-Chair Coach – Naptown Seth. He knows his stuff.

Rookie of the Year – BringJackBack and xBulletproof. BJB has slowed down a little on his posting, but he is level headed (game threads notwithstanding :)) and usually has thoughtful posts.

Sunshiner of the Year – Scott Pollard (For his stance that "Indiana fans can't resist good basketball.")

Most Humorous Poster – The Don(his sarcasm is apreciated here, now he only needs to clean up his complainings about the referees and we could probably have a good poster :D)

International Poster of the Year – able


Best Non-Pacer Fan – Mackey Rose ( yeah he is a Lakers fan now :D)

Sunshiner of the Year – TMJ31

He always maintains a positive attitude in those game threads when everyone else (myself included) is really down on the team. His posts help me appreciate what goes right and what we have as opposed to what is missing or what went wrong on a particular night.

(I'm going to spread out my votes a little so that the Nominations Thread doesn't get buried further down the page. My apologies in advance)

Rookie of the Year. Pacer4ever is a great poster, Im not sure what qualifies as a rookie though.

Yes, pacer4ever does count as a rookie. The nominations thread for the last round of awards was posted on May 29, 2010. We missed them during this last off-season. It's kind of similar to how Blake Griffin could be considered a rookie last year.

Like cdash, my list will probably be a bit different.

Most Valuable Poster – avoidingtheclowns (For the grunt work of game threads - though this looks like Peck's award to lose)

Most Humorous Poster – LoneGranger33 (LG33's humor kind of sneaks up on you)

Best Debater –

International Poster of the Year – ballism (lots of good choices here)

Best Non-Pacer Fan – cordobes (cordobes is the statsheet stuffer of PD - could probably be nominated in up to 4 categories)

Sunshiner of the Year –

Darksider of the Year – Mackey Rose (realist or pessimist? regardless, helps keep things grounded around here)

The Post More Often Award – Naptown Seth (still makes lengthy posts, but at less frequency)

Best Arm-Chair Coach – Sookie (underrated analysis)

Rookie of the Year – Heisenberg (whoa, all those guys are rookies?)

He's the chloroform rag of comedy.

I was recently called the Walter Donovan of decision-making too, which is probably why I'm going to announce avoidingtheclowns (or atc as he's known to those of us who are foolish enough to recognize his existence) as my nominee for Most Humorous Poster.

I'm glad some posters have already nominated Trader Joe for this award too, as I'm sure he'd otherwise ask me "y u no nominate me for most humorous?". Also, he's funny.

rexnom
02-09-2012, 05:35 PM
Is there any way to add like a most realistic or most grounded poster award? We have darksider/sunshiner but nothing in the middle. I always enjoy Anthem's posts, for instance, because his highs are never too high and his lows are never too low.

EDIT: "Thank" this post if you want a "Moderate Poster of the Year" Award.

LG33
02-09-2012, 05:48 PM
We had a Moderate Poster of the Year award last year (and Anthem actually won it too), but I didn't think it was a strong category. Since it was only given out once, I figured it wouldn't be missed. How about this: If you get ten thanks, I'll put it back it.

ATC is a lot funnier than me. Plus he's the much more dedicated game thread maker. I was so proud of myself when I added the Messing with Sasquatch keys to the game. ATC goes all youtube-y. ATC is like the Picasso of game threads to my kid who has already been held back twice and can barely write his name in paint, we'll call him Biff.

I'm gonna try and nominate some people that haven't been nominated yet.

Most Valuable Poster – Anthem, he has humor, he has sarcasm, he has good insight. And he lives you wanting just a little bit more every time posts. The mark of a great performer.

Most Humorous Poster – OlBlu, he has to be an act right? Either way he cracks my **** up. I mean just look at his location, too good to be true.

Best Debater – I'll go with the Mini Me to Mackey Rose's doctor evil and nominate BRushWithDeath since Mackey already has a couple noms.

International Poster of the Year – Mourning

Best Non-Pacer Fan – Pacer4ever, he likes the Hornets now right? Or something like that.

Sunshiner of the Year – I would put TMJ31 down here, but he is already got the noms. Does El Pacero have one yet? I don't know if he does or doesn't, but I'm putting him down.

Darksider of the Year – Seems like a two horse race. And I don't feel like I can put BBall down here and while Able has been crotchety at times, he's also downright cheery about some players. I'll put Sookie down here just for the sheer fact that somehow she has managed to dislike Lance even more than me. ;)

The Post More Often Award – Kegboy

Best Arm-Chair Coach – Hoop, I like his basketball insight for the most part and the usual suspects have already been nominated.

Rookie of the Year – xBulletproof

Moderate poster of the year sounds boring and indecisive. Maybe call it "Most Reasonable Poster" or something like that. Someone who has good insights but isn't way over the top about it.

I'm nominating people who aren't the "norm's" except for Peck, he deserves MVP just for his Odd Thoughts alone.

Most Valuable Poster – Peck

Most Humorous Poster – PacerPenguins (his inability to detect sarcasm gets me everytime)

Best Debater – CooperManning

International Poster of the Year – I don't know who's elibigle so I'll say Saras as that name screams international poster. Mourning should be up there as well.

Best Non-Pacer Fan – Again, not sure who's not a Pacers fan outside of Kstat so I'll say robertmto (apologies if you are but I think you are a Wizards fan).

Sunshiner of the Year – PacersHomer, Pingu, TheDon, SandMan, Flibertygibits, (just wanted to type that) and imbtyler (for his video's).

Darksider of the Year – I don't know. People say vnzla but I often find myself agreeing with him. So I'll go with BRushWithDeath even though I enjoy his posts as well.

The Post More Often Award – Doug, CactusJax, Kerosene (what happened to him), BC, 317Kim, and pizza guy.

Best Arm-Chair Coach – Will Galen, Dr. Awesome, Hypnotiq, beast23

Rookie of the Year – Not sure who's eligible so I'll pick LucasRL13

Moderate Poster of the Year - Mackey Rose, Mourning, Major Cold, Foul on Smits

Most Valuable Poster – Peck - odd thoughts 'nuff said

Best Non-Pacer Fan – Kstat - when the Pacers or Pistons aren't involved, I often find myself agreeing with him.

Sunshiner of the Year – 90'sNBARocked - I think he has single handed kept quite a few of us good with Lance Stephenson

Darksider of the Year – BRushWithDeath - or Mackey, sometimes I wonder if they are the same person. I don't often agree with him, but he brings up good points and makes well thought out arguments.

The Post More Often Award – thunderbird1245 - I wish there were more drafts so I could read more of his stuff.

Most Humorous Poster - AesopRockOn - I find myself thanking his posts for humorous reasons more than anyone else.

International Poster of the Year - granger33 - dude comes all the way from Australia and has been repping this team hard in Indy. Bravo sir.

Best Arm-Chair Coach – thunderbird1245 - draft profiles 'nuff said.

Rookie of the Year - BringJackBack - I was shocked when he said he was 15(?). Very level headed and makes some great posts. I usually find myself agreeing with him.

Moderate Poster of the Year - Hicks - Probably the poster I agree with most. Doesn't seem too get to high or too low.

I thought Mourning was already a HoFer for International Poster. Am I mistaken?

The nomination process seems like a good time to recognize the contributions a lot of posters add to PD and the voting stage when it's time to select only one. So, in order to completely wreck your birthday LG33, I'll list several nominees but you can accept the which ever nomination helps make the categories more diverse.

Most Humorous Poster –
AesopRockOn, LoneGranger33, Trader Joe

Best Debater –
wintermute, cdash, Trader Joe, shags

ballism, frostwolf, cordobes, Mourning (if he's not already a HoFer)

Best Non-Pacer Fan –
shags, cordobes, d_c

Sunshiner of the Year –
Day-V, El Pacero, Scot Pollard

Darksider of the Year –
BRushWithDeath, Mackey Rose (though I'm not entirely convinced they're different people)
EDIT: Ha...hadn't seen ilive4sports post. Thought I was alone...

The Post More Often Award –
Pig Nash, kester99, Sobotka, MrSparko, maragin, vicious tyrant

Best Arm-Chair Coach –
Oak Moses, sookie, imawhat

Rookie of the Year –

Moderate Poster of the Year has been officially added as a new category. A definition for it has been added to the original post. Thanks for all the nominations so far, and keep it up!

I was thinking about adding a "Best Avatar, Signature or Graphic of the Year", but I figured that it would be difficult to do at this point without having to ask people to go back and search through previous posts (which is why I've excluded Post/Thread of the Year categories this time through). 12 thanks and we'll add that category to the list.

Wow, I must really suck at this. Almost 50 posts and not a single nomination. :bs:

I feel your pain. I thought I'd at least be in the running for Best Avatar. Considering that it took me about 5 years to learn how to post it....

However, I am just thankful that I was not nominated for the "Post Less Often" award.

I would also like to make a friendly reminder that the nomination process will end tomorrow afternoon. If you would like to make nominations and haven't already done so, please do so before 12:00 EST tomorrow. Yeah, that's right Gary residents, I said Eastern Standard Time. None of that CST nonsense here.

To be considered for the 1st Annual Amazon.com Participation Prize, please make sure you have nominated posters in eight separate categories and that you haven't nominated, accidentally or purposely, anyone who is ineligible for any award. Banned posters and retired winners will not be counted towards your eight nominees. For example, Naptown_Seth cannot win Best Debater - even if you believe he is most deserving of it - due to retirement restrictions. This is not to punish Naptown_Seth, but to allow other posters to be recognized for their contributions to the PD community.

Best Debater / Naptown_Seth

I don't think Naptime would meet the age requirements for grumpy middle-aged man of the year, let alone old man. Although he does have the ranting potential of a crazed adult.

As for a fanboy/girl category, I kind of treat Sunshiner like that. Although "fanboy" sounds like a pejorative term to me, and I don't see "sunshiner" that way.


Well damn, I was going to boycot this but that non specific Amazon card drawing is pretty tempting. Is it for more than 10 cents? Can't I just vote democrat?

I'm half-surprised nobody else asked that question. I was thinking of a number of different ways of determining how much it would be. I was going to choose an arbitrary amount like $31 for Reggie Miller or $33 for Danny Granger (maybe $12 if Sookie wins, but definitely not $55 for our resident Roy Hibbert superfans). I'm thinking we'll do something different now, with the winner of the drawing having a hand in determining the amount.

There are plenty of names out there that I would otherwise vote for and several candidates I would put up for more than one nomination, but I kept my votes to one per category, except Darksider, because that one is too hard to choose for me.

I absolutely agree with McKeyFan. There are so many terrific posters who I think are more deserving of recognition than some of the people that get votes in these categories. The categories reward people who for the most part illicit the biggest reactions. Consistency, patience, and a different train of thought to some topics are things I really appreciate from posters, but a lot of the drivel from many posters ruin threads that otherwise have terrific discourse. I would like to thank everyone who didn't get nominated for anything for your contributions to this site. We together as Pacers fans have a commonality and a fondness for one another that shouldn't be brought down by our basketball opinions. Please everybody remember that we need one another for this to be better. Next time you are emotional about someone's post, please take the time to be above the sarcasm and negativity that hurts discussion. It will help you in many more phases of life than just creating a new post.

Yeah, there's no inclusion criteria for that award, but perhaps there should be. That's something that's definitely worth discussing. Maybe there should be a cut-off at 1,000 posts (for example) since the last awards year. Right now, the person who posts the most out of anybody can be chosen as someone you'd personally like to post more often. Like the darksider and sunshiner awards, it's pretty subjective at this point.

Awards season has officially concluded here on Pacers Digest, but I wanted to take this opportunity to once again congratulate all the winners and thank you all for nominating and voting for your fellow posters. The 8th Annual Pacers Digest Forum Awards were a great success thanks to a surplus of deserving nominees and the enthusiastic participation of a majority of our active posters. These eleven posters represent the best of the best in 2011-12, but a great many more are also worthy of high praise for their efforts over the past year and a half:


Best Arm-Chair Coach - Naptown Seth

Best Debater - Sookie

Best International Poster - ballism

Best Non-Pacer Fan - Kstat

Darksider of the Year - vnzla81

Moderate Poster of the Year - Hicks

Most Humorous Poster - avoidingtheclowns

Most Valuable Poster - Peck

The Post More Often Award - thunderbird1245

Rookie Poster of the Year - pacer4ever

Sunshiner of the Year - Kemo


Some items, possibly of interest:

This is the first year in the history of these awards that no single poster has won multiple categories.

Six (out of a possible ten) awards were given out to new winners in their category. Out of the four awards with repeat winners, two posters - Kstat and Peck - have earned retirement status with their third wins as Best Non-Pacer Fan and Most Valuable Poster respectively.

Across all categories, Mackey_Rose earned the most votes (39) without winning an award. Peck and vnzla81 led the list of total vote-getters thanks to dominant performances in a single category.

Infinite MAN_force chose the most winners with six out of his ten nominees taking home top honors (he didn't submit a pick for Moderate Poster). Two of his other four nominees placed 2nd. Unless I'm mistaken, pacergod2 was the only poster with five correct picks, while a few had four.

Kstat, Naptown_Seth and Peck - all winners this year - continue to add to their awards collection. Overall, Kstat has won seven awards (not too shabby for a Pistons fan on a Pacers fan forum!), while both Naptown_Seth and Peck picked up their sixth.

As remarked upon earlier, this year's rookie class has already surpassed a combined 20,000 posts, with Rookie Poster of the Year winner pacer4ever sitting at the 15th spot in all-time posts with an incredible 13,260.


Thanks!
