Here are the categories:
  • Poster of the Year: Overall, who was the best or most exemplary person to post in these forums? The person for whom you vote should be the one that embodies your image of the Fungi Forums. When voting, all you need is a name.
  • Topic of the Year: The forums have had many varied topics of discussion; though many were for practical purposes, some were particularly thought-provoking or otherwise noteworthy. Which one was the best? Please link to the topic and tell me who posted it. The topic must have been originally posted in 2008 to qualify.
  • Post of the Year: Of course, said topics would be nothing were they not filled with posts. Whether valued for their humor, their emotion, or just plain strangeness, many of these posts are outstanding. Which one stands out to you? Again, link to the post (using the URL from the button, please) and say who made the post. The post may be in any topic so long as it was made in 2008.
  • Most Productive Poster: Which person makes the most of his or her posts? Whose posts consistently contribute to the discussions on the forums? Remember that frequent posting is not a requirement for this award.
  • Smartest Poster: For this award, choose the person who has demonstrated the most intelligence in his or her posts over the past year. Said intelligence need not be related to Mario or other video games.
  • Funniest Poster: After a one-year hiatus, the Funniest Poster award returns! Vote for the person who has made you laugh the most over the past year.
  • Most Creative Poster: Who posts the most original content? Whose posts are consistently unique compared to those of others? Vote for that person here.
  • The WTD Award: Which poster is the weirdest of them all? Who has made you exclaim "What the dukar!" (or any similiar, possible more vulgar phrase) the most in 2008?
  • Most Missed: Sadly, several people have left the Fungi Forums in 2008. Whether this person announced his or her departure or just stopped posting for whatever reason, vote for him or her here.
  • Best New Member: On the contrary, who is the best among the new people of 2008? The person for whom you vote here does not have to have registered in 2008, but must have startes posting within this year. Posters who have previously left and returned are not eligible.
  • The Deezer Award: Go with your gut on this one.

Voting begins now. To vote, copy and paste the following template:

Remember that you may vote up to twice in each category. You do not have to vote if you do not want to; if so, please put DID NOT VOTE in the categories for which you did not vote. You may change your votes up until voting ends, but I encourage you not to do so. You may vote for the same person in multiple categories, but you may not vote for yourself. Votes must be submitted before 11:59 PM (CST) on January 9, 2009. Have fun.

General Chat / Winter 2008 ADVANCED Poster Awards
« on: December 20, 2008, 07:07:44 PM »
Welcome to this year's edition of the ADVANCED Poster Awards! For those of you new here, this is an annual celebration of the community of these forums. We review posts and topics made in the past year and decide which ones are the best, as well as which people show particular skill in different areas of posting. For the returning members, it looks like I'm running them mostly alone this year. This means I'll count the votes instead of making the mods do them. Whoopee.

If you are new, or if you have forgotten them, here are the rules:
  • Do not vote for yourself.
  • All votes must be for something that happened in 2008. For votes on topics or posts, they must have been posted in 2008; for votes on people, that person must have posted in 2008; for signatures, custom titles, and the like, they must have been made in 2008. Exception: If it happened in late 2007 (that is, after those awards were underway) then it's fine. I started the awards too early that year.
  • You may vote twice in each category. This is changed from previous awards, as in them you would vote for a winner and a runner-up. Runner-ups will still be awarded, but you do not specifically vote for one or the other. You may vote only once (or not at all) if you like.
  • Voting ends Friday, January 9, at 11:59 CST. Hopefully I'll have them counted and the awards posted soon after.

The voting categories are found in the next post.

You would think that "Chedda" could spend his $5000 a month to improve his life so he didn't need free government money on some non-ugly glasses.

Here's a hint: Airplanes (and their bathrooms) are usually not in any one specific time zone.

The Comics Curmudgeon -- I got linked here by the email that went with the dying post of The Comic Strip Doctor. It was inferior to the Doc's stuff, but much more regular.
This is the only one I read.

Sorry but you are quite frankly a dumb***.
I can't tell what's worse: my joke, or your trolling?

He clearly left on December 15th at 11:59:31 PM. Anyone who doesn't use Central Deezer Time is lame.

I think the makers of this program could have picked a much better name.

Edit: This post should never have existed.

I think that first ad says something about the Fungi Forums.

I wonder if you will have coins automatically registered for systems and games you have already entered on their site. I assume Nintendo will do this, but who knows.

I want to know who voted yes.

I'm sure these have already had a topic dedicated to, but a BUMP would have to happen, to the long dead topic, so I made this topic.
How many times have I explained the difference?

I also saw the meaning behind his thread. As I mentioned in #tmk earlier, I think the thread and his signature go well together.
