    Default PD Forum Awards?

    As a result of the lockout and the resulting lack of forum activity this past off-season, the forum did not hold it's annual awards this past July. I am honored to have been given the green-light to run the PD Forum Awards this time through, and I wanted to take a quick poll of PDers to gauge interest in whether or not we should hold the awards during the season, and if so, when.

    The awards that were handed out the last time were:

    Most Valuable Poster
    Most Humorous Poster
    Best Debater (previously Most Argumentative)
    International Poster of the Year
    Best Non-Pacer Fan
    Sunshiner of the Year
    Darksider of the Year
    Moderate Poster of the Year
    Post More Often Award
    Pacers Thread of the Year
    Off-Topic Thread of the Year
    Best Arm Chair Coach
    Rookie of the Year
    Off-Topic Most Valuable Poster

    As is tradition, PD is open to suggestions for new awards and suggestions for tweaking or replacing old ones.

    I am also hoping to continue the PD Hall of Fame as established by Pig Nash. The inaugural class consisted of Mourning, MagicRat, ABADays, Hicks, Able, Shade, Roaming Gnome, Kerosene, Uncle Buck, ChicagoJ and Peck.

    Please you this thread as a forum to discuss and debate the prospects and merits of these awards.

    *Due to their dominance, Mourning and MagicRat have been retired from consideration for the International Poster of the Year and Most Humorous Poster awards respectively.

    Let's do it, and I'd say if you have the time, might as well get it rollin' now. I want to see the showdown between Vnzla and Mackey Rose for darksider of the year. I also want to nominate Kegboy for sunshiner ASAP.

    Don't you think the people who stuck around during the lockout deserve awards probably moreso in order to keep the traffic up?

    I nominate LG33 as "Kind of a Boner" for making this a private poll.

    As the members of Guns and Roses once said, "every rose has its thorn"...

    Here's a question: what's the difference between a darksider and a troll. Do some posters regard themselves as darksiders? Or do they simply look at many of us as hopeless homers?

    In the other direction, how do we distinguish between a darksider and, say, a devil's advocate. For example, in the past Croz has received a lot of grief and perhaps has been labeled an insufferable darksider, but lately I've enjoyed the different perspective in a number of his arguments and consider the "devil's advocate" label more appropriate.

    Who decides the awards?

    is it a nomination by other posters or a panel of "experts"?
