You'll fill in the questions in this post. Simply copy-paste it in your post and fill it in. And you can't nominate / vote for yourself. wink.gif

The point is to nominate others, but if you feel required to nominate yourself, you can.

@Ryan, may I recommend an award for 'Best Returning Member' and 'Best Signature?' we've had quite a few this year. smile.gif

Good suggestions, but it's a little late now. Will make note for next year.

I posted this along my nominations in the other topic, but may I suggest adding awards for 'Best Returning Member' and 'Best Signature'?

If it's not too much of a hassle of course.

I was torn to nominate with Blitz or Narcis_speed6 for the most helpful in the visual arts. I've seen Blitz help a lot of people with his fantastic work but Narcis_speed6 has helped me numerous times with avatars/signatures. Keep up the good work both of you. icon14.gif

Another year, another chance to fall flat on my face. Could someone maybe make me a medal out of a bottle-cap and a bit of string? Maybe that way I won't feel like a complete failure.

*Rubs hands together* Boy am I excited about the awards this year. biggrin.gif

@blitz - I like the idea of "Best signature of the year", I can imagine members having a great time voting on that one. Hey, it might even encourage more members to get involved in signature making. smile.gif

Ryan, I've been here since last year as a guest, but I decided to create an account just this year. Am I still able to vote?

@blitz - That would be an amazing addition and a great incentive to create new designers.
btw, if it has "The Worst Username", it should've something like "The Best Username". smile.gif

Good suggestions, but it's a little late now.

Well, not really, it's only been 3-4 hours since they've been started, and just a few people nominated, they could easily edit. My opinion though.

Also a question, "Best Server" category in MP Awards...there isn't really any server anymore on GTAF. Only server there is now is Minecraft one, but that's more GTAF related, then MP Gangs related. Even if that counts, it's still only 1 server, so yeah...

Few more suggestions from me, to spice some things up in the MP section, to add a vote, "Best New Gang" with 2011 gangs eligible only, whilst the Best Gang overall is for, well, overall. tounge.gif
"Best" and "Worst" member of unofficials as well(like the Official gang awards have).

Lastly, Best IV and III era "Screenshots". We had them last year if i recall.

Well, if it's not too late(i think it's not), those are my suggestions. Bit too much maybe...but oh well. I said it, so up to you now Ryan. tounge.gif Regardless, good with with everything else!

Sure. As it indicated in the nomination topic though, the things or people you're nominating must be in reference to something from 2011.

@Andy: Good point. I'm only going to do this now since we're so early in the nomination stage. Any other suggestions will be noted for next year. I'll add "Best Returning Member", "Best Signature", "Best New Gang", and "Best Screenshots (III & IV Era)" to the list of nominations. No promises on them carrying through to the voting stage as I'll have to run them by the higher ups first.

I am seeing lot of people complaining about my Topics. Infact, this awards are for 2011 and not f*cking 2012. So, just to be short, you all should not enter me in that.

Do we have to link every single member? So far, most people haven't linked anything.

One more thing, about the best picture question: Can I nominate a gif?

I've edited my post and nominated it.

I don't think a GIF falls under that category. I've always associated 'best picture' with something that has been captured from your camera with/without edits. Also, I haven't seen anyone nominate a GIF before.

Simple Q: Not many people who knew me before are aware that I have been on the forums, on multiple accounts, for some years now. Is it wrong for me to be nominated as "Best New Member", and if so, can I have the nomination moved to, say, Best Returning Member?

If you've been here previous to 2011, then yeah, you should be nominated in the category. As for being nominated for Best Returning Member, when did you leave GTAF and when did you return with this account?

This is where I get confused, as I posted as LHFG on the same day as creating my new account, so wasn't sure if I could even be nominated for either of them.

You were around here all of 2011 and just switched accounts. Best Returning Member is meant for someone who hasn't been around the forums for several months or years and has returned. So you're not eligible for that. Since you're not a new member either, you're not eligible for that either. Sorry.

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.
