Hey guys, it's this time of year again and time for our annual Awards! These awards will go to the best forum users of the past year. Here is how the Awards will work - There will be 3 threads, this thread, the voting thread and finally, the winners thread!

In this thread I will need your guys help in drawing up a list of catergories for awards. Now I dont think we want too many! Maybe around 10 - 15.

Here's a few that I have come up with.

Most Helpful
Best North American User
Best European User
Best ROW User
Fave User
Funniest User
Most Spamful User
User I want to nail most

If you could just post your suggestions and then I shall discuss them with the members of the bass chat room at some point and decide on the final catergories!

Remember - this is all just a bit of harmless fun and you guys shouldnt take it to heart when i win all the catergories


EDIT - I think we're gonna do the voting from a shortlist this year. This means that me, DeliriumBassist and Sinan90 will choose 4 or 5 people for you to choose from in your vote!

This does two things, makes it easier for us to count! And prevents every catergory becoming a straight out popularity contest and ensures the right awards go to the right people.

Boss GEB 7

Oh, hey, would you look at that. Guess I'm in the running for an award.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

Posting it on the forum?

You are sooo not getting into an elite unit .

I used the codes, it's disguised enough

All those involved know who they are, all those who see no meaning in those numbers, those numbers are not there!

Let's make sure to have some joke awards for the regulars that don't actualy win a catagory too. The possibilities are pretty awesome for that. I want to know whether it's jazz rock feel or thefitz that wins the "most likely to be a secretly paid advertiser for carvin" award.

edit* best rant!

Best thread that needs to be stickied, that was at one point but isn't anymore. Sounds like a good idea to me.
#39
If it is a good thread, it still should be sticky worthy.

That would be an interesting one.

I think a good category would be the most cool user. Cool meaning many things.

Do you mean mods, in that case already suggested, if not, then I'm not following ya =\.
