Fair fucks to Athrun there, that's an absolute stoater of a tagline. I didn't get it at first, but it eventually clicked, and I feel like a proper fanny for not thinking of it myself.

Uh.........what just happened? Needless to say, I'm immensely honoured that people think I contribute in some positive way. Thank you very much.
I personally don't think I deserve it - Muss and Drunka put actual effort and organisation into their jokes, and, even though this year's been shite, I think every one of the regular folk here has made me laugh on several occasions. I also fear my dad jokes are instead of actual topical conversation.

Sad to see we won't be getting to read the runners-up, enjoyed browsing those in previous years.

I was only planning to do it for Forumite of the Year, to be honest. I can include it for the votes moving forward (except for Post and Topic of the Year, because fuuuuuck that!) and I can retroactively reveal that myself, Muss and gjones received some love for Contributor of the Year. You're not getting Tagline of the Year because once again, fuuuuck that. Laughing

In any case... fancy another set of results?

The SSX Tricky Award for Board of the Year (11 votes)



AKA The General Gaming Award, right? Well, maybe things won't be as clear cut this year. We've seen bustling activity elsewhere on the forum as well as brand new board to herald the arrival of Nintendo's latest console. Let's see how it all went down.

Third Place:
 

Second Place:

Fuck off GG. Sulk I asked for Jay to remove it from the ballot this time around, and while I respect his reasons for not doing so, I still think that would have been the optimal decision.  It gets boring when the champion wins all the time: outside their hardcore fans, nobody liked the dominant Australian cricket team of the late 90s-early 00s, and nobody cheered when Sampras won yet another Grand Slam.  At least this time it had a serious challenger.

To be honest I just want to see the comments.  It's part of what GNamer's all about: #bantz, and 'words everywhere'.  Our voting comments are some of the funniest anywhere, and I like seeing them all shared so that we can appreciate the effort of their submitters.  

(I'll bet that I'm the only person who submitted comments for Tagline though. Laughing Also I think you rolled 'em out for Contributor already, didn't you?)

In all honesty, I think it gets exciting now - can Switch topple the unbeatable champion next time around, or will the champ win again?

The new Switch board didn't even cross my mind tbh even though I've really enjoyed the sudden burst it gave the forum overall.

I can't deny that it'll get exciting next year, unless GG wins again - in which case, in the Switch's launch year when BotW and SMO are out, GG really does need excising from the ballot.

It's worth noting that GGD didn't win - it came joint top. Thumbs Up! That alone fills me with hope. And a few other emotions which are weird and confusing.

It does get boring having it win every year, but I honestly think the Switch board has been a more exciting place to post. It's only been about for a couple of months, and the fact it's ended up garnering a joint first in such a short space of time is a real credit.

But in any case... to make up for no results yesterday, how about another double whammy?

The Premier Inn Award for GNamer Forum Event of the Year (ten votes)



It's been a good year for the big little forum, especially considering we've seen a plethora of podcast, an assortment of Admintendos and capped it off with a meet-up and a Secret Santa. That's not to mention the various in-game meet-ups we've seen, be they in Overwatch, Splatoon or Mario Kart 8. Let's see which were your favourites.

Third Place:
 

Second Place:
 

Overlord of all Events:
 

What I Say:
 

Another one!

The Topic Bar Award for Topic of the Year



There'd be no forum without things to discuss, so it falls upon the backs of these wonderful topics to get discussion flowing. Here are your results for Topic of the Year!

Third:
 

Second:
 

Tastiest Topic :
 

I say!:
 

More tomorrow!

Whilst the Event of the Year was perhaps an easy one to predict, I can never get a handle on what the Topic of the Year is going to be. I put that down to there being several awesome topics to go at. Good work, all! Grin

It's nice to see a wide variety of topics getting some well earned love, but it's also nice to see an outright winner, especially considering the effort that goes into those anniversary topics. Thumbs Up!

Yeah, I was chuffed to see an outright winner too - those results worked out perfectly, to be honest, as we got a good range of threads highlighted and a shining light cast upon the NGamer threads. Thumbs Up!

Wouldnae have thought of that thread winner, which I'm somewhat embarrassed by - a lot of work got put into that, and without TRP that's now our best way to remember the days that brought us all together. Thumbs Up!

Up to them if they want to reveal themselves... Wink

Also, a heads-up - they're won't be any results up tonight, but look to the thread tomorrow!

And tomorrow has arrived.

The Lon Lon Ranch Fence Award for Post of the Year (11 ballots submitted, although some did not submit all three and some voted for the same post multiple times



...and voting for the same post multiple times ain't allowed!

A big one this - which was the post that blew us all away this year? Make sure to read after the results for a special BONUS SURPRISE!

Third!:
 

Second!:
 

Grand Post Lord:
 

I say!:
 

BUT WAIT! There's more.

See, there were, unsurprisingly, a shitload of nominations in this category. As I was tallying them up, I came up with a new mini-award of sorts, so...

The Olly Moss Award for Prolific Poster of the Year (11 ballots)



Basically, this award is going to bestowed upon the individual who received the most nominations for their posts over all the posts nominated. Case in point, the winner of Post of the Year got three votes for his post, so that's three nominations for that post in total. Let's take a look at the results!

3:
 

2:
 

ONEONEONEONEONE:
 

Appreciated:
 

So there you go! A bonus award, just for you lot.

Tomorrow - it's GNamer's turn to talk about our games of the year that was!

Well deserved win for Jimminy, a classic second place for myself and I'm very chuffed with what that bonus award says about my posting. Also, nice to see Cappa get a nod for a proper, thought-out post about games among all the joke nominations.

They were three different posts, in three different threads. They just happened to all be Jas saying "Kojima played us like a damn fiddle."

So if Jay can make up new awards on the fly I think it's safe to say all these "results" are made up as well - It seems like he's played us all...........
