I'm not really sure I completely understand your question, but I'll try.
People can nominate whoever they wish. They even can nominate themselves, no matter at what. Though, when the voting session comes, if they'll try to vote for themselves, they'll appear on a Hall of Shame. Not only that, but obviously the vote won't count.

Was merely making discussion as everything year, SOME users tend to vote for themselves, and I find it quite egotistical.

As I already said earlier in this topic, the point of the awards is to nominate others, but people may nominate themselves if they like at the expense of ending up in the Hall of Shame.

Isn't that for people who vote for themselfs? Nominating is a different thing.

Yeah that's what I thought.

I have nominated myself but I might change it. Your right Ryan, it's about nominating other people.

...Just out of curiosity why aren't the votes being done the same way as they were the year before. What I mean by that is where you click a link and takes you to a new tab where all your votes/nominations are kept private. With the way it is this year all results will most likely end up being bias. Along with peoples votes being public for all to see it will also push people not to give there honest opinions in most cases.

@Ryan- Love your sig, go 'nucks go!!!

You're confusing the Nominations with the Voting Booth. The Voting session will take place here. The votes will be kept private, as you said. The Nominations will be closed on April 22nd, 2012.

Quick question; when voting, I know I can't vote for myself, but can I vote for my own gang and members in my gang?

You can vote for the members in your gang, but at anything that has nothing to do with the gang itself. Voting for your own gang will get you on the Hall of Shame and your vote will obviously not be counted. At least that's how I remember it happened last year...

Miro has it. If one of your gang members is in a category, there's no issue voting for them; it's only if you vote for yourself in a category or your own gang in a gang category that you get humiliated.

[EDIT] I see you're in the Members group, so I'm guessing you're talking about MP Gangs. I'm not sure how that works, then, since I'm not sure if your vote is actually private to those who tally the votes. Master Ryan should know.

IIRC, the Hall of Shame won't be able to identify members who vote for their gang but are not in an official gang.

I have a question that I'm quite curious about. With the nominations for the Multiplayer section, more so the gangs. Wouldn't "Best New Gang" only included the gangs that were made during 2011?

Reason I ask is because I was reading through the nominations and some say for gangs that were created within the past 2months (first few months of 2012). So would they be counted too or would they have to test the time and see if they're still around when the 2012 Awards come about?

Yes, Best New Gang would be for a gang create in 2011. It's not the only category people cannot read the rules in.

What if I nominate a gang that was made in December? Technically that's 2011? The gang doesn't have to be around for the entire year do they?

It's okay.

I havn't checked, but multiple nominations are okay, right? Since we are nominating anyways.

Not sure if this has been adressed as of yet but last year you had people nominating well established topics from prior years (i.e. The Funny Picture Topic, posted 2008 on a banned account) as opposed to the actual year's topics. Hoping that's being corrected this year to keep the overall tone current.

Yes. Says it right in the first post of the nomination topic.

We'll try our best to weed out in-eligible nominations. Things would be much easier though if people could learn to read and only nominate things from 2011 instead of things from 2012 or before 2011 though. confused.gif

Yea, I don't envy you the task of sorting it's a large undertaking, to say the least. I know uNi was helping out quite a bit last year with this but I haven't seen him around quite as much as of late. If I can be of assistance in any way let me know.

I would like to thank Jedi and who ever else voted for me as most improved member. It made me realise how much of an idiot I used to be and how I still need to improve. I looked at the Ivanov topics eirler pages and the O'Sulivan Cartel topics pages. Im going to be honest, if he was a different guy that was here today I would of hated him. Mainly because of the way I wrote and my attitude.

Im now going to try to get to the next level, im going to try and be a nice person for a change. No more trolling, no more arguments or slagging. Im going to try to help people who start up new gangs. However its great to have feed back and again I thank you all. Also ill edit this in the morning when im on my computer because im on my phone at the moment where im bound to make mistakes. icon14.gif

Jedi isn't the only one to have noticed Glenn, you seem like a genuinely good member in the multiplayer sections of the forum and The Westies seem like a good gang, keep it up. icon14.gif I'm on ps3, so I don't know the in's and out's of the Xbox community that well, but it seems like a lot of dumb kids pretending to be italian mafia, so it's good to see a new member not like quite a lot of the rest are.

Anyways I'm sure people have noticed, my name has been put down by a lot of people that don't like me (D12) on here. They are doing this for spite. I'm not really sure why since I thought we had passed the stage of "e-drama" as they like to call it, but oh well confused.gif

I noticed there was a worst poster /topic creator award, but not a best poster / topic creator.

Sorry I was one of the fools to post, best topic - funny picture topic, not much of a general chat reader, but I do check that topic often, full of lol.gif

To be honest I'm actually a bit surprised by all the nominations for me so far. Don't take this a suck up or as a way of trying to get more nominations, but I'm very grateful. Thank you everyone.

When I first joined in October 2007 I was a bit of a hot head and had no idea what my place would be here at GTAF, but roughly 4 1/2 years and over 8,500 posts later to see nominations for "Most Respected", "Most Knowledgeable". "Most Helpful" etc and I know this sounds a bit corny, but it makes me feel very proud I've managed to make my time worth while.

As some probably know who frequent the GTA V forum I became a GTA V forum mod about 2 days after the trailer had come out and let me say it's probably the hardest thing I've ever had to do since I joined. The work Ryan, K^2, Knife and those before me have done with that place is truly incredible.

Anyway I was a bit unsure whether to post in here as I've noticed quite a few nominations over the last few days and I didn't want to come across as desperate or anything. Whether I win any awards or not I'm very appreciative I've managed to make the time for members who have come into contact with me easier and I'll do the best I can for the remainder I'm a GTAF member.

Once again I can't thank everyone enough. smile.gif

You're saying I need to post a reference link for specific nomination categories, that's all clear but is it necessary that this link refer to GTAF or could it be external as well?
