Winter 2012 ADVANCED Poster Awards!

(1/15) > >>

Time of that it's again year!


* 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!

From Sapphira:

Returning Members of 2012: (Note: dates are the month and year of these members' last posts before they returned, in Month/Year format. "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.)
