Results are in!



Voting is over! Stay tuned for results!



Tiebreaker voting and Poster of the Decade voting is now underway! See the linked posts below for more information.

Tiebreaker; voting ends February 22nd
Poster of the Decade; voting ends March 1st

Please keep tiebreaker votes and Poster of The Decade votes in separate posts.




It's that time of year again! And also that time of decade again for the first time! Time for awards! Yay awards! With special tenthiversary edition awards!

There are rules! These are them!
  • Don't vote for yourself. Vote for me instead.
  • Unless there's any major objections, we're doing it like last year -- you can vote for two people in each category, either as a tie (Deezer/Sapphira) or as a winner and runner-up (1. Deezer 2. Sapphira).
  • You can change your vote by editing your post as many times as you want until voting closes.
  • You may abstain from any categories you want. If a category doesn't get enough interest, it might not get awarded.
  • Feel free to add in your own category ideas and see if they catch on.
  • Votes should be for stuff that happened in 2010, or after December 12, 2009 (when the last awards started).
  • Voting will close at 12:01 AM (Eastern) on February 8th, 2011.

Post of the Year: What was the most memorable (non image-based) post this year?
Topic of the Year: The best topic of the year, by whatever criteria you choose.
Image of the Year: Let's bring this category back. Why the hell not. Images can be user-created or not; use your own judgment.

Funniest Poster: Even more self-explanatory.
Most Creative Poster: Out of all the painters and authors here, who's the best?
Most Creepiest Poster: Your hair smells good.

Best Newbie: In amongst the spambots are quite a few diamonds in the rough. Pick some.

Poster of the Year: Weegee/ShadowBrain
Post of the Year: Uh, I dunno... this, maybe?
Topic of the Year: This.  It spawned the biggest wave of parody threads since the "Let's X for REAL" craze.  It was annoying, sure, but I gotta respect that.
Image of the Year: The Chef Signal.
Most Amiable Poster: FlamingBlueMardio... although since he seems to have dropped off the face of the earth lately, he might be a candidate for Most Missed.
Funniest Poster: Hmmmm... ShadowBrain.
Most Creative Poster: Ninjap00
Most Creepiest Poster: Lizard Dude
Smartest Poster: WarpRattler
Best Mod: Kimimaru/The Chef
Best Newbie: jazzyluv (I'm only counting new users who have stuck around and posted in something other than the New Members thread)
Blast from the Past: Best Bait and Switch from a Previous User Who Said He Was Returning but Didn't Stay: Count Bleck
But seriously, Blast from the Past: jmdblazer (hopefully - see above category)
Most Missed: BP again.  Unless it has to be from this year.  In that case, FlamingBlueMardio/waddle_doo
Dynamic Duo: foxmccloudfan and coolkid, tragically.
Queen of Posters: Pt_Peach
WTD Award: foxmccloudfan/Super Bloober/Glorb
Deezer Award: Deezer

Poster of the Decade: CrossEyed7/BP
Post of the Decade: This seems to stick out the most in my head.  In a good way, I mean.
Topic of the Decade: The Pointless Topic!
Image of the Decade: There are so many great images to choose from I don't even know what kind of category is this

Deezer Award: Lizard Dude

Post of the Year:
Topic of the Year: Luigison's The Chinese Room (philosophy is cool)

Best Mod: The Chef (pretty much the only "active" mod)

Blast from the Past: Insane Steve (why can't he stick around?)
Most Missed: Bird Person (who else really?)

I surfed here using a PS3 for half the year so I had a weird perspective and lowered capabilities for much of it. I'll prob still vote though. CE7 is great keeper for these awards; his category descriptions were hilarious.

If Mr. Wiggles and ShadowBrian don't go 1-2 on Creepiest I'll eat my hat. I do like how Turtlekid1 backed up his vote for me with evidence, though.

Looks more like evidence of CrossEyed7 being creepy, to me.

It's a testament to how accurate his category descriptions are when the two people who have received Poster of the Year votes so far spent much of the year making dick jokes.

At last, the awards! And for the end of the decade, no less... how could I forget? Well, here we go:

Poster of the Year: Oh, shoot, uh... how about... Weegee, and then... Toad?
Post of the Year: Glorb's request.
--Runner-up: Turtlekid weighs in on "The LD".
Topic of the Year: For lack of an easy way to search threads by year created... You "Awesome", You Lose
Image of the Year: (No homo)
--Runner-up: :)
(I suppose I should've been keeping better track of great pictures throughout the year, but I'd be here all I day if I considered Y_,YL threads.)
Most Amiable Poster: Kimimaru and Pt_Peach are always agreeable.
Funniest Poster: Weegee's a shoe-in, but I unfortunatly must admit that Lizard Dude has his moments as well.
Most Creative Poster: ninjap00 certainly lent a (slightly demented) artistic presence... but I must also give CE7 props for making his image request thread.
Most Creepiest Poster: I couldn't bring myself to nominate my partner in crime, Weegee, so I'll go with Lizard Dude, with WarpRattler bringing up the rear.
Smartest Poster: Oh, shoot, I don't know... just give it to PaperLuigi.
Best Mod: Kimimaru followed by The Chef, because why not.
Best Newbie: JazzyLuv seems to be doing well lately!
Blast from the Past: However briefly, Insane Steve. And then I don't extremely remember his return, but it sounds like jmdblazer was out and about this year, so give him #2.
Most Missed: The nicer Glorb. And, I guess BP...
Most Improved: Turtlekid, I reckon.
Dynamic Duo: For lack of a more thoughtful option, let's go with Lizard Dude and Turtlekid1.
Queen of Posters: Pt_Peach, followed by JazzyLuv.
WTD Award: In a way, I really have to give it to Glorb first and Suber Bloober second.
Deezer Award: Seeing as he's actually shown his digital face a few times this year, I think this one should naturally go to Deezer.

Now, I haven't been here a whole ten years, so I'll just say what I think some the best things I've ever seen here are:

Topic of the Decade: ShadowBrain's Harem.
Post of the Decade: This is a daunting one... I'll just go with the two I remember most from all the awards seasons I've been here, if only for the sake of the occasion: That "Eye Puff Angst" post of LD's, followed by the faux Wikipedia entry on a resident troll whose name escapes me.
Image of the Decade: Advice Dog, duh. Runner-up: That Creation of Man picture LD put on the first post of YL, YL that got taken down.
Poster of the Decade: I'm treading on delicate ground here, so how about... CrossEyed7, followed by LD?

was SuperCaterina around at all this year?
She posted some pretty awesome pictures in February. Other than that, not really.

Y'all jelly that we treat our waifus like queens while you...don't even have one.
As a game that requires six friends, an HDTV, and skill, I can see why the majority of TMK is going to hate on it hard.

But... I treated Glorb like a queen... ;~;

Since when does hilarious equal creepy?

I didn't say it wasn't funny, but I don't see how making a joke about Turtlekid being intimate with someone isn't creepy.
