PostSubject: The GNamer Forum Annual Awards 2017   Sun 31 Dec 2017 - 22:13

So here we are. The final day of Space Year Twenty Seventeen. That must mean it's time for...

THE FIFTH ANNUAL GNAMER FORUM AWARDS

In order to have time to contemplate the enormity of the task ahead, you have until the 24th of January to send in your votes. Results will be announced the week after. Get your thinking Cappies on, team. Cool

All awards are one vote unless stated otherwise, y'all. And here be they:

__________________________

Forum Awards

Forumite of the Year (two votes, weighted equally) - the best forumites of this calendar year (as a teacher, my year basically starts in September Sad ). They are the twin pinnacles of GNamer, displaying wit, wisdom and other good stuff.

Contributor of the Year - the person or spambot that brings it. Consistently. Replies, new threads, hashtag bantz and hashtag content. They are.... CONTRIBUTOR OF THE YEAR!

Funniest Forumite - laugh out loud, this forumite makes you. The humour is ripe, rife and always on point. Go on, vote them as your Funniest Forumite of 2017.

Board of the Year - we put all our posts on boards. Which has been the top board in 2017? Reward it with a vote in this here category.

Topic of the Year - it could have been amusing, informative or discussative. That's a new word, apparently. Anyway, whichever one it is - it's your Topic of the Year. Oh, er, it can't be one of the big ones (like an Admintendo or vote thread - they go in GNamer Forum Event of the Year, below).

Post of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - oh, you remember these! Those posts that made you smile, shout "Yes" or otherwise nod at your screen. Give 'em some credit.

GNamer Forum Event of the Year - this could be an Admintendo, or the meet-up, or a vote, or perhaps one of our delectable GNamer podcasts.

Avatar of the Year - picture this!

Signature of the Year - signing off, and yet signing on to our hearts.

Tagline of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - you know those little lines that appear under the forum heading? We call those 'taglines'. Some of them are funny. Others are ones that I wrote. Wink Give us your favourite trio - you can check the nearby tagline thread for all of 2017's goodies.
______________________________

Gaming Awards

Switch Game of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - the Wii U was cast out (well, except for Breath Of The Wild) in favour of some hybrid console, with its Joyk-Ons and flimsy dock thing. I hear some of the games were alright, though.

3DS & Mobile Game of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - the 3DS has perhaps wound down this year, if not in the release schedule, then perhaps in our hearts. Honour it one last time. Perhaps.

Nontendo Exclusive of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - must have been released exclusively on a Nontendo system (including PC, iOS and Android).

Multiplatform Game of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - and one of the platforms can be a Nintendo one, of course.

The Katie Hopkins Award for Worst Game of the Year (three votes, in order of preference) - in amongst all the brilliance of 2017 there has been some brutally poor stuff. Tear it a new one in this vote.

Honourable and Dishonourable Mentions - send as many or as few as you'd like, for any and all categories.

In terms of all the gaming awards, please make sure your votes were released in your territory in 2017 and were full games that you played.

_____________________________

Please send your votes to me, ZeroJones, using the MP system (or PM, if you prefer the English name). If there are aspects of the categories that displease you, we can discuss them here. Go for it.

I believe the word you're looking for is discursive. I look forward to the discursive vote!

Thanks for running this sir! Have some voteythings from yours truly. Not sure Hopkins' name deserves to be anywhere near this fine thread though.

I'm sure she'll think otherwise. Wink Thank you for your votes, sir - most kind.

I'll be sending you mine, your way soon.

I can think of my picks for the winners for each award part from posts of the year, anyone want to jog my memory on some great ones?

The best place to check is the Posts Appreciation thread for any outstanding posts.

I'll have a think and get my votes over soon!

I certainly used that thread as a shortlist for my votes. I'd encourage other people to do likewise (unless there's an absolute beaut that's been missed, natch): that reduces the odds the vote being spread over twenty or so different posts.

Reminder: voting in the GNamer Forum Annual Awards closes at the end of this Sunday! Please send your votes in an MP/PM to me... and you don't have to vote in all the categories. Heaven knows, I'll struggle with some of them... Embarrassed

You could for the double whammy, link it to a tagline and games coming out in February as that goes up on the 21st.

Looking back over my votes in the time since I sent them, so far I've:
  • got two games the wrong way around;
  • said Okami 2 when I meant Okami HD;
  • confused the number of GNamer meet-ups we've had so far.

Roll on Sunday... Duh!

Ahhhhh I completely forgot about this. I'll vote now. It won't be very wordy though, sadly.

Yeah, sorry, I didn't think I was going to have time to do this - I assumed I'd be in hospital by now recovering from some kind of thing (*wins the Hypochondriac award*). I'm rushing some answers through now - I'm sorry about that...

I must admit to being excited! This is arguably the best bit of any vote thread: the countdown until it goes live. Smile

As the tweet I've just 'expertly' 'composed' says, the voting window has now closed! Please do not vote as you may still be charged. Actually, no-one was charged - it was a free vote. Wink

Couple of things: I've downgraded the post from 'GLOBAL ANNOUNCEMENT' to 'Sticky'. Secondly, processing, calculation and carrying the ones begins in earnest on Saturday 27th January. Expect to see the first result released on that very day. Thumbs Up!

Well quite, the actual votes are inevitably terrible.

Remember who’s running the next vote thread. I am quite expertly crafting a titanium rod for my own back.
