Greetings MTers!

It is my pleasure to begin the preparations for the Apollos, the annual Musician Talk awards. We begin by determining an appropriate set of categories that users can vote on. Here are last year's categories, without their formal titles:

The Most intelligent Award

The Sexiest Award

The Best Avatar Award

The Most Jazz-educated Award

The Worst Grammar Award

The Coolest username Award

The Most ridiculous username Award

The Most Helpful Award

The Best Current MT Mod Award

The Best Past MT Mod Award

The Least patient Award

The Most Likely to become a mod Award

The Most likely to kill a man Award

The least offensive Award

The "Pied Piper of Sexual Uncertainty" Award(Most likely to end up playing flute for a living)

The Most profane Award

The Most likely to get banned/warned in this thread Award

The Most frequent topics poster Award

The Least Theoretical Award

The Most under-appreciated user Award

------

Please let me know about any previous awards that you DON'T want on the list, and any unlisted awards that you DO want on the list. Remember, you are picking CATEGORIES, NOT VOTING FOR PEOPLE


Here are my suggestions:

Remove:
The Worst Grammar Award

The Best Current MT Mod Award (all it's going to do is make me sad that John's not always here )

The Most frequent topics poster Award

Add:

The best rivalry award (two users who always seem to be fighting)

We have the new Advanced Techniques forum, so maybe someone could come up with a category for that...


I anticipate that actual voting will take place Monday, May 12th and last about a week. Until then, get cracking with the suggestions!

these sound good. so help me if anyone takes my most likely to kill a man award i swear i'm gonna.......

sit in a dark corner crying listening to emo music

I bet I can give a good challenge to z4's throne. It probably won't end in a coup, but it might be fun and bloody. Cause I can most definitely have fun laying someone out and tying his or her small intestines to my locking tuners and wind them out slowly before he has a chance to cut off my face.

How about something for the posters that have been most curious/eager to learn? Cause I see a few MT users that post more then the occasional question and really use MT to learn guitar musicianship The school of MT - what a school it would be.

Definately some stuff for advanced techniques, bandleading, and the open stickies.
like "best explanations" for AT, "most experienced" in bandleading - or "most active in _____ sticky.

I'm obviously going to win the first three, and most of the others... I don't really think this is fair to everyone else.

The Least patient Award


Yes!
In the bag.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

As a newcomer, who in no means is pimping for himself, how about a best newcomer, or best noob, or something like that. You could also go worst in that category.

"Most likely to waste away lonely and old and die facedown in a puddle of his/her own vomit in a gutter Award"

Then I could win one!

or: The most missed Mt regular.

We could share it? I know that that's gonna happen to me, or something of the like, so i might as well get an award?

Hehe. Yep.

Anyway, is it me, or is MT turning more into a battle about who's right rather than what's right the last few months?

Wasn't him. (sorry if I stole your thunder there Psych)
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.
