Time of that it's again year!

Rules:
  • No voting for yourself. Lots of voting for me.
  • There will be two rounds of voting, sort of a primary and general. The first one, starting now, will be in an approval format. The top vote-getters from this round will be voted on in the second and final round as necessary.
  • This means you may vote for as many people/things in each category as you like in this round. Voting for more will not diminish the weight of your vote, so go all out!
  • Abstaining is totes an option, too. Vote in as many or as few categories as you want (but more would be good).
  • Edit your post freely to change your votes until the voting round closes.
  • You may also send your ballot to me in a PM if you want it to be secret.
  • When voting for a post or topic, please include a link. You can link to an individual post by clicking on its .
  • Votes should be for stuff that happened in 2012, or on or after December 10th of 2011 (when the last awards started). There's some flexibility here -- for example, you can vote for a Best Newbie who registered in 2011, but didn't become active until 2012.
  • This round of voting will close at 12:01 AM EST, February 24th, 2013.

Categories are as follows:

Poster of the Year: (Insert something grandiose-sounding here.)
Post of the Year: (More unnecessary padding here.)
Topic of the Year: (Remember to replace these with actual descriptions before posting!)
Image of the Year: Original images are generally preferred, though this category can also apply to excellent contextual use of a pre-existing image.
Signature of the Year: Some previous sigs were recorded over here, for reference.
Song of the Year: Hey whoa what's this?! It's the Song of the Year category! Enough original music has come out of these forums that it's about time we recognized it. Remember, you can vote for as many as you want!
Deezer Award: It's the Deezer Award.

Funniest Poster: Who's the funniest posters?
Most Creative Poster: Who's the most creative posters?
Smartest Poster: Who's the smertest posters?
Most Amiable Poster: Who's the most amiable posters? (Hint: It's Markio.)

Best Newbie: Who was the most appetizing fresh meat?
Blast from the Past: Dang we had a lot of these this year.
Most Missed: Who needs to blast back here in 2013?
Most Improved: Who doesn't need to be blasted in the face as much as before?

Most Mario-Wise Poster: NEEEEEERDS!!
Meowiest Poster: I don't even know why this is still here.
Queen of Posters: I really shouldn't have used all my Queen puns last year.
King of Posters: Equal opportunity now! Also the Queen and King have to kiss.
WTD Award: bazpringles

Here's some info that might be helpful:

"Blast" means they only posted a handful of times within that period, "legit" means when they were last truly active. I only looked in the New/Returning Members thread, so I may have missed some members.)

TheMightyThor joined/started posting at the tail-end of 2011 (12/13), so he may or may not qualify. Never mind. He's actually coolkid.



Sapphira's Votes:

Poster of the Year: CrossEyed7
Post of the Year: Hmm... Well, I'd have to say this post because it linked an article that resulted in me re-examining/shifting my perspective. Which I suppose is pretty life-changing. But I suppose, as far as actual content goes, this post covers those ideas the best.
Topic of the Year: Sexual Orientation. Probably the only thread created this year that held my interest and sparked both the most intellectual and personal (i.e. meaningful) conversations. Not to mention, for the most part, everyone's handled the controversial topic respectfully and maturely. Yeah, I may have created it, but everyone else helped sustain it and made it what it is.
Image of the Year: A Winner Is Kuromatsu
Sig of the Year: Toad's: "I understand that [Toad] has some popularity. Somehow." ~ Shigeru Miyamoto
Song of the Year: "Waluigi's Island (a capella)" by Fifth (and teh_yoshi from the chatroom). It's so creepy and awesome at the same time!
Deezer Award: dezzer

Funniest Poster: Huh. Tough one. I guess maybe CrossEyed. I can't really think of anyone else who's said/posted funny stuff (in 2012). Which is actually kind of sad.
Most Creative Poster: Qwerty
Smartest Poster: CrossEyed7, although Markio has a lot of wisdom.
Most Amiable Poster: Markio

Best Newbie: Glowsquid (he's more active in the chatroom), Godot
Blast from the Past: Markio, by far the most active, quality-contributing returning member. And he's also been gone for 4 years!
Most Missed: Watoad. Also Black Mage.
Most Improved: TheMightyThor (AKA coolkid)

Most Mario-Wise Poster: CrossEyed7, The Chef
Meowiest Poster:
Queen of Posters: Let's go with BP or The Chef. Naw, Markio for teh funnehz.
King of Posters: Sapphira. Voting for myself if only for the irony.
WTD Award: TheColonelKR

Retro Awards
Dynamic Duo: The Chef & TheColonelKR
Best Custom Title: Ogres Have Layers - "Malaprop Monster"
Most Creepiest: [Man, that grammar bugs me.] Hello:)
Best Name: Ym9iYnlzcTEzMzc equalsign


Jeez, CrossEyed and Markio. Way to dominate the awards. :P

Everyone remember that you can vote for AS MANY THINGS AS YOU WANT IN EACH CATEGORY THIS TIME

If things work out like I'm hoping, this round of voting will basically be like a nomination round.

Since turnout is still pretty low (and I'm not really in the mood for counting right now), I'ma go ahead and extend voting out through next week. Get your Round 1 votes in by 12:01 AM EST on Sunday, February 24! For reals this time!

My computer is dead. Awards will be delayed a bit. Feel free to vote more until further notice.

Also if anyone wants to give me a couple hundred bucks to buy a not broken computer that's less than seven years old that would be cool.

If I had a couple hundred bucks, I wouldn't donate them to your computer, but I would definitely think about it for approximately seven seconds.

And polls are now closed! It looks like Deezer won everything once again!

Somehow Weegee got Miss Congeniality.  Lizard Dude got second.  BP got Not Last.

Post of the Year: Only two people even voted, so... No winner.
Topic of the Year: -TIE- Ladies and Gentlemen: Shigeru Miyamoto's Super Mario Bros / Sexual Orientation
Image of the Year: OLIGARCHY. No runner-up.
Sig of the Year: Toad's: "I understand that [Toad] has some popularity. Somehow." ~ Shigeru Miyamoto.
Runner-up: Markio's Regular Show quoter: "Hey Rigby!  Look at me!  I just laid sea turtle eggs and now I'm swimming out to sea!  Although many of my hatchlings won't make it to adulthood."
Song of the Year: "Waluigi's Island" by Fifth. Runner-up "Good Gravity" by Truttle.
Deezer Award: Deezer. Runner-up TEM.

Funniest Poster: Weegee. Runner-up BP if self-votes count. Otherwise no runner-up.

Put me down for Markio and Sapphira in every category.  CE7, I have a lot of respect for you , but this procrastination looks more like something Luigison would start and never finish.

It's going to take so long they'll be merged with this year's ADVANCED Poster Awards, which will actually take place in July 2014.

I remember back when I was active here, I was the original showrunner for these awards. This quote is depressing as hell...

Also to answer the question of why Meowiest Post is in there, you can blame me and my ridiculous obsession with cats back then for it. My username was Meowrik back at that time haha.

As Forest Guy's successor, I feel obliged to say something:

I enjoyed hosting the poster awards, I may not have been a Tina Fey or Amy Poehler, but I think I hosted a pretty mean Awards ceremony anyhow.

Sapphira used to make some nice certificates for the winners. Did anyone ever print one out to display it? That would have been terrific.

I've actually been considering doing that. The main problem is that posts from the more recent year will probably be more remembered.
