So I think its important to chose the topics of the categories for our end of the year awards. We need to decide right now weather or not certain topics would be a bad thing for the BBS or not. I’m of coarse talking about the “worse” of topics. We all should have a full range of topics. Once we’ve agreed on the topics then I’ll begin a new thread to choose nominees.

Normal Categories:
Best New Member
Best Increase In Posts
Most Disappointing Departure
Most Disappointing Decrease in Posts
Best Member of the Year
Funniest Member of the Year

Here are some suggestions I think we’ll enjoy:
Best Thread
Funniest Thread
Worst (Most Failed) Thread
Best Flame War
Best Debate
Most Interesting Topic

I think those are pretty solid. Some people may want to add more, but if we just did those, I'd be fine with it.

I don't know if you're joking or not, but I want to say this anyway just because some people need to see it:

I think we need to stray away from some of the more negative awards just because the tone of the board has changed a lot in the past few months to a place where even a slight little jab at someone jokingly turns into a flame war that lasts for weeks and spans multiple threads. Don't get me wrong, flame wars can be fun and relieve boredom, but the way things like that have been going down recently, I don't think we need to incite more of them when we have an easy way not to do so.

We need to make a sticky flame thread, or better yet, a flame section. Cause then everybody could just be able to stay away from it.

EDIT: As for the awards, I think we could go with those.

I realise that because I'm new here my opinion on this probably isn't as important as long serving forumites, but I have to agree that the last thing you want to do is risk an all out flame war. The categories should be positive awards, with maybe one or two others done in jest. Nothing malicious.

Biggest Dick, because it can be read both positively and negatively and you can't specify when voting.

I'm fine with those categories.

Edit: maybe add a "your band" esq category, such as "best original song" or "best Offspring cover".

I also wouldn't mind seeing a "best troll" category, but alas that may not sit well with others.

Or even the "best forum invasion" category, although this may be a bit silly. But considering we've had a couple of those this year and a fair amount of lulz as a result (Dudes from the Letters Organize, Neo-Nazis, Nirvana loving copyright lawyers, Russian nationalists, ect)

The neo-Nazis is still one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen here. Aside from the Jihad on the politics section, of course.

I would get rid of "Best/Worst Flame War", flame wars are super boring in general, and they in no-way deserve recognition.

But maybe I'm just an outdated version of an internet forum user and people like reading other people's attempts at witty insults. Like some kind of pathetic battle-rap, but without the rhyming, the skill, the bar, and the practice.....oh and the music.

Maybe get rid of what Per mentioned, and some other things like Best Troll.

Here are a few you might not have.

Most Underrated Member
Best Member who Left (Edit - hadn't seen that you already had this one)
Most Devilishly Handsome
How do you like my Best Member

Things like that.

In case it's not clear, only Most Underrated is really any good or usable at all.

Oh god, that guy. After he got IRL pwned for what he posted, he came back under another name and tried to convince me that he works for the label and I should do whatever he tells me to do or I would get the band in serious trouble. I think he also threatened me with legal action. LOL.
