    Default The "Thread / Post of the Year 2009" Thread

    Greetings all,

    As you know, the PD Forum Awards include "Post of the Year" and "Thread of the Year".

    Usually, the threads and posts submitted for nomination are few. And those that are remembered, are almost always off topic.

    This thread is meant to improve both significantly, if it gets your help!

    Here's the deal:

    I think one of the problems with the these categories is by the time the awards get around, we tend to forget a lot of great stuff from over the past 11 or so months. This thread is meant to address that.

    Next year, those two categories will become four categories. A Pacers-related, and an off topic edition of both Thread of the Year and Post of the Year.

    What I'm asking of all of you is this:

    Any time from now until I begin the awards for 2009, any time that you read a post or read a thread, off topic and also Pacers related, that you think is worthy of nomination for 2009, reference it here.

    This is our memory thread, so that we don't forget. If this is a success, I will bring it back next year, too.

    Please, leave us a link to the thread/post, the title of the thread, the poster who created the thread/post, and most importantly, a sentence or few telling us WHY it should be nominated in 2009.

    Random, Scattered Disturbed Thoughts thread posted by Gyron. I laughed for a LONG time reading this. Gyron says he can't take credit but he was the one who posted it.

    You guys need to provide links and who posted or created the thread to reference what you want to nominate. I really don't care to dig through the archives come April 2009 to do it. Thanks.

    Those people aren't Wolf Game Players. They are counters with some free time.

    Yeah, at the numbers they are up to now it takes awhile for them to finish the ciphering for what number comes next. Plus it fries their brain so they take a break and pretend they are flesh-hungry animals rather than syrup-hungry animal-lovers.

    Oh hats, so quirky.

    "Not a Redickulous thought" is begging to be in my sig/avy somehow. Definitely going to invoke that to back up some of my future opinions. "Pacers getting the 4th seed? Not a Redickulous thought", etc.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Tom White comes strong against Hoopsworld
    http://www.pacersdigest.com/apache2-...0&postcount=27

    The writer would then have to have some kind of inside information. From what I have seen of the writing on Hoopsworld, I doubt the writer even has any outside information.

    I think there should be a special award this year for best nickname. You know, like how some people call Naptime Seth by his chosen name.
