As I was voted the Most Popular Male of 2011, I think it would be absolutely fabulous if I get the vote in 2012 too. Very Happy

Also, I don't think Ally should be allowed to vote this year, as she made it quite clear she didn't vote for me last year, which only goes to show that The Vote is wasted on undiscerning young women like her. Nod

I'm sure there will be a similar process of choosing categories as there was last year. Petty has already mentioned that he has plans for expanding the awards and I would be interesting in adding some Creative Corner Awards since that forum has seen a growth in activity recently. We're still 7-8 months away from thinking about that, though, so I'm not sure what the point of this thread is other than Orwell continuing to inflate his post count. Rolling Eyes

Getting a little ahead of ourelves here are we not- like children wanting to open their xmas presents before xmas day! Evil or Very Mad
As per usual, nearer the time I will set up a thread for suggesting categories to add to the exisiting ones. And we can't even begin to formulate the film awards side to it anyway.

"whats the harm in having Pseudo Awards anyway?"- Mrs Figg

Maybe none, but my own fear is it would spoil the the main event smwhat if there was a competing set of awards. (And on a practical side its hard to come up with stuff every year, not just the categories but the whole ceremony bit- doing it twice uses up twice the material).

If people were interested in having a Creative Corner Awards, then perhaps we could hold those at the mid-point in the year. I really enjoy the Forumshire Awards, but I agree that replicating it just ruins the effect. If people want to do something else to make the wait go by, then I think doing something fresh is the right way to go, whatever that something is.

I don't think I've ever met such a group of self-centred, egotistical, glory-hunting, whining hobbits in my life. Rolling Eyes All I was trying to do - ahead of time - was ban a certain young woman from voting next Awards, a young woman who should never have had been given the heavy responsibility of voting in the first place (to wit, 2011). We do need to sort out the Voting Rules surely, well ahead of time, rather than wait until the death knock before Ally (or perhaps someone else, once we've had time to investigate voting intentions) votes in a ridiculous non-consensus manner! Really, you people! Rolling Eyes My good intentions turned into farce yet again. Mad

No I dont think it would be fair as not everyone has something on the Creative Corner thread, it has to be open to everyone, thats why I suggested a Best Post award, its short sweet and not too complicated or take too long to organize like the forumshire annual awards, and everyone gets to win something which is good for morale. I dont mean something that takes over and makes life difficult for photoshoppers.

we could all perhaps put forward funny gif's or photos or videos, something to illustrate why we deserve to win the nomination for a particular award, for example if there was an award for a 'self promoting and fickle hearted Ozzie who has run off with another woman at the drop of a hat without a backwards glance award', you show a picture of Orwell.

Not having witnessed the forumshire awards before I'm not quite sure what it entails, but you may not want to take steam out of it by having something similar mid year. Having the Creative Corner awards as something separate (because not everyone participates) is a good idea. And who cares if not everyone participates? Not everyone participates in these silly sports events the world over, yet people get excited about them all the same. The audience members are participants.
