    Exclamation The 2008 Pacers Digest Forum Awards - Let's get things started!

    I dusted off my notes from previous years and made some additions in bold.

    Here are the awards, and below are the rules. I like what Kstat has done with his awards, and would like to change these a little bit by having 3 awards per week, rather than 1 per 2 week days (48 hours unless it's a weekend). This would mean once the voting starts, the awards would go for 5 weeks (there are 15 awards). I've created a poll for this to hear from you all.

    === The Awards ===

    Rookie Poster of the Year - The best poster to have joined the board in approximately the last 12 months.

    Most Humorous Poster - The funniest poster on PD.

    Most Argumentative Poster - The poster who can't lose a debate. Ever. And he'll tell you why.

    The "Post More Often" Award - The poster who you'd love to read, if only they'd do it more often. The poster you'd most like to see come out of his or her shell and further add to the community!

    Best Arm-Chair Coach - The poster who displayed the greatest knowledge of the game of basketball.

    Darksider of the Year (Most Pessimistic Poster) (Formerly known as the Most Pessimistic Poster award) - The guy who has the least amount of in his or her world. The poster who is sure to point out the cloud in every silver lining. (As of 2005, the poster known as "indytoad" was disqualified from this award as his negativity is artificial; an attempt at swaying karma in favor of the Pacers)

    Sunshine Poster of the Year - The antithesis of the Darksider of the Year award, this poster displayed optimism and hope in our darkest hour.

    Most Fanatical Poster - The poster who went the most above and beyond in showing his or her Pacer Pride!

    Best Couple - This award goes to the pair of PD posters you most often associate with one another, for better... or for worse. This category does NOT include a single poster and a non-PD member.

    Best Non-American Poster - The biggest Pacers fan not from the United States of America.

    Best Non-Pacer Fan Poster - If there truly is such a thing , this is the best forum member who roots for somebody other than the Blue & Gold.

    Poster You Most Love to Hate - The poster that drives you furthest up the proverbial wall.

    Post of the Year - The single greatest post since last Spring. The one that literally made you reply "POST OF THE YEAR!" when you read it. Maybe it nailed home the point you were trying to make. Maybe it was the funniest thing you've ever read. Maybe both.

    Thread of the Year - Similar to Post of the Year, this is the single thread you enjoyed the most. It might be a great conversation, or a great time wise-cracking with your fellow members. You decide.

    Most Valuable Poster - This poster is the glue that keeps Pacers Digest together. The poster that you always make sure you read.

    === The Rules ===

    Administrators can be nominated. (2006)

    The forum members will have one business week (from early Monday to late Friday) to submit nominees. (2006)

    Nominations will be submitted via PMs to me. (2004)

    Each category will have a minimum of five (5) nominations. (2004/2005)

    Each category will have a maximum of fifty (50) nominations. First to come, first served. (2006)

    Each category will only exceed five nominations in the event of a tie. Otherwise, it's just five (5). To clarify (2008), when the poll to vote comes up, I submit the 5 nominees who got the most votes. If only 5 people were nominated then they go up by default, but if it's more than 5 I pick the ones who received the most nominations.

    48 hours will be given to vote for each award. (2005)

    Each category will have two business days open for voting. If the voting begins on a Friday, it will remain open through Monday. (2005)

    Once the Nominees have been announced, use the announcement thread to find and eliminate inconsistencies in the Rookie and MIP categories. (2004/2005)

    Banned members are disqualified from being nominated. (2005)

    "indytoad" is disqualified from being nominated for Darksider of the Year. (2005) How's this for out dated?

    The Voting will be done in a Public Poll. (2006)

    If I can prove that Jack secretly has an account can I nominate abjry and him?


    Most Humorous Poster - The funniest poster on PD.
    Clearly a 2 man race I think, 3 if you count Stanko as a splinter poster on his own.

    Can we nominate multiple people for the same award? Some of these are tough.

    O.K. then I nominate everyone on my ignore list for posters I hate. (Was there supposed to be some love in there? I keep forgetting that part.)

    Now this is interesting since I just got a call from the FBI last night. Seriously.

    Sure makes you wonder about the poster.

    Poster You Most Love to Hate is going to be a crapshoot this year. The two defending champs (myself and the dearly departed Jermaniac) certainly won't be in the running.

    I have a feeling winner of Thread of the Year may lack somewhat in substance compared to previous ones...

    Sir, what we lack in quality, we make up for in quantity. Seriously though, you'd be surprised by the things you learn in there...for instance, just yesterday I learned about 8 new sandwich combinations.

    Thanks, ABA. I don't deserve to be lumped in with those two. I gave myself a brief hiatus this year - but I'm on my way back. You can count on me.

    Well I don't think I've been around long enough to have any say on the nominations, but I look forward to seeing the outcome.

    Considering he's been banned, that's tantamount to necrophilia.

    Though we've certainly missed his presence around here, ajbry and Stephen Jackson MUST be the best couple. Or newman and rcarey - you should read some of the stuff they write to each other in the Counting Thread. On second thought, you shouldn't.

    "Rookie Poster of the Year" shouldn't even be close. It's a non-contest really. We're all just lucky a star of his magnitude would even stop by our humble board.

    I'm down with that, regardless of the fact I barely posted here this year (and I still maintain most of my posts aren't Jack-oriented).
