Step 1: Start by posting a gif that relates to a celebration, usually involving shock or happiness.
Oh. Mah. Gawwwwwwwwwwwwwd!
What do I do?! What do I do?! I just won a medal! sh*t, sh*t, sh*t! Um, right, refer to the "Winning An Award" manual!
*opens up book*
Right, that's done but just to be sure here's another.
Okay, that's good. What's next?Step 2: Proceed by saying you would never imagine winning an award - bonus points for a sob story.
I would like to thank the whole GtaForums staff and members for believing in me as I would've never thought I would be here! I grew up on the Neopets forum alone due to not having friends as a child cause my mom insisted I have a mushroom haircut most of my life so to be here now, today, and yesterday, and the day before that and all other 362 days before that is just mind-blowing! Okay, that seems like enough...next step*flips page*Step 3: Congratulate the other contestants and give them a word of advice.
I would like to congratulate my fellow members such as...Fozzie and...euh, Voodoo...and Hugh Mungus and his cousin Inor Mhass for running as Funniest Member. I can't really give any real advice other than checking both sides of the street before crossing and posting things a 12 year old would laugh at.Step 4: Close off by thanking everyone and promising something in return for this award.
I would like to thank everyone from the staff that I paid off in cat gifs as well as to the members I paid to vote for me. Those Tim Hortons gift cards sure do come in handy! I can only promise that I would be less funnier from now on and that my immaturity will shoot through the roof like a Call of Duty player in a home-made catapult. Again, thank you!
Okay, you can all stop staring at that gif.
I've said this a few times now but I've always been...."scared" of winning an award. I've been here since '07 on and off so it's nice to finally get recognized...but I fear I'll get lazy. "Oh, I got a medal I'm established now!" But see it's not how it works. I shouldn't think like that at all. I should take this award and see it as a challenge to keep that title, to keep making good threads/jokes whenever I can and make the staff go "now is this post off-topic or just usual livejoker bullsh*ttery?" I'm hoping that this award doesn't make me a righteous prick. If the staff/members see I've become lazy I want someone to screencap this and PM it to me with the title "STOP BEING LAZY". Kick me in the butt to do fun stuff.
What does 2017 hold for me? Well the ugly character jokes won't stop, that's for sure. Dildo talks in the Van Society thread won't stop either. They told me to shut up once but I've talked about the subject like 7 more times after that lool. So...yeah. I dunno. I guess I'm still taking it all in? I mean the award, not the....you know what, let's just enjoy this. Seriously, thank you for the staff to host this year after year. It's always been a joy to see this develop into a big orgy of members coming together. That was bad phrasing. And thanks to the members who make the place such a joy to be in. Some members say that GtaForums is their home and, well, as pathetic it may sound it also is my home. It's the place I go to when escaping real life. Here I'm not judged, I'm not mocked (my character is though but that's her fault) and I feel like I belong...so...this is really nice.
Thank you and congratulations to everyone in all their respective categories. There are many in there that deserve their win such as Dagger's "Sup" reply, all the Member Awards, the amazing photographs that make me envy them immensely due to their skills, the staff awards, Van Society taking a few wins (!!!), Quadro taking a win for his awesome created map and anyone else I missed on calling out. It's been an amazing year in terms of content (more specifically talking about the GTA:O section due to it being my home) and I hope the trend of high-quality threads and posts can keep going right into 2017 and 2018. Also the usual leaks and Youtubers promoting their channel cause that's tradition by now. Bit bummed Mister LS lost cause last year my G.O.A.T lost so my redemption didn't work out but I just gotta keep pushing.
Have a chaotic Christmas and a trigger-happy new year! tl;dr *please refer to the last line of this post which is this line.*
