    I'm trying not to automatically just round up more Zephos moments, but man its hard. I'm leaning towards the "Kuinas dad was right!!!" debacle currently.
    They are so repetitive that I can't pick out a specific moment.
    It's like trying to remember what happened in Shawshank and what happened in Green Mile.

    You don't need to justify your nominations. All I ask is that, if something is already in the opposite category, you think about it before nominating it for the other. Its not a huge issue, it just gets weird when there's a flood of opposite noms. Not *everything* can be best and worst at the same time.

    Print Error is like the better version of me so technically it's almost like I'm winning it again this year.

    You're somehow being both modest and arrogant at the same time.

    No offense. I'm impressed, actually.

    Thanks, I guess? XD

    I don't think it's that sure a bet though. Been lots of lovely folks joining the forum lately!

    Nah, you won the award the day you registered. It's about time we finally get there.

    I'm flattered, but really, that feels a little discourteous to the other new members. Let's see how it goes, no?

    I'm not here for glory anyway. I'm mostly here for strange photoshops and bad puns.

    As much as I agree here, the underdog mentality I can't shake makes me want to nominate and vote otherwise. I hate foregone conclusions with a burning passion.

    Oh, I'm not nominating Print either, as much as I would love to. My nod will be going to noob, no question about that.

    Perhaps we should have a Best New Member(that isn't Print Error) category.

    There wasn't one for Chrissie either, so I'm thinking this is fairly fair.

    I don't dislike anyone, but I agree with this. It's true that sometimes a particular nom in a category seems obvious to many people, but casting it down as solid and ignoring all other possibilities, especially when it comes to member awards, is really discourteous and kind of rude to others in the category. Moreso when a number of people are doing it (and it goes on for a good several months). Everyone is obviously allowed to give their opinions as they wish, but a lot of 2013 members have put in significant time and effort being a part of this forum, and it might be more considerate to not basically tell them that they don't compare.

    Yeah, but discussing it so matter-of-factly eliminates any sense of suspense or democracy involved with the nomination process. I mean, yeah, it's an obvious conclusion, but I dunno, I'm just really uncomfortable as an event coordinator to speak so candidly about something like that. My goal is to make this as inclusive and considerate as possible. It just goes against my style, I guess. I at least try to be an impartial host.~

    Yeah, the Best New Member award is terrible this year.

    Noob pretty much shaped the character tournament, Epoida is an extremely lovely person and really active in the general section...while Print Error is pretty much the "jack of all trades" type of poster. I guess Print will win because of that, but it's kind of sad that there can only be one winner.

    If I had anything to say I would rename them the AP's Angels and simply go with an overpowered group-nomination that pulverizes everything in it's path.

    There's over 250 posters that made introduction threads alone since last year, there should be at least a little competition once names start getting named. I think Purple Hermit or Robzilla might have a chance, myself.

    (Khainiwest2‎ however is not eligible.)

    Also, since in the past we've done the AP tourney in December, and this year we're doing it in January... for this year only we'll be including December of the previous year... So this year noms go back to December 2012, 13 months to choose from.

    This is off the record, but Getsuya seems like he's been here forever, and I totally freaked when I saw he joined only last month. I don't frequent enough threads for my opinion to be conclusive, but the guy just blended into things in a way that took me by complete surprise and that's probably why I'm going to throw my nomination that way.

    Well, honestly, this is one of the major problems and flaws that this particular category has.

    Choosing a BEST human individual at anything is incredibly unfair towards everyone else who competes in that category unless there is a very definitive set of measurements that can be used to accurately decide who is the best. Sprinters are pretty much the only thing I can think of in that regard. It's intrinsically problematic, and I think the only reason we keep coming back to it is because it's a tradition. Like Chew Outs, which in worst cases are nothing but people cruelly ganging up on someone who thinks in a way that might be strange and potentially harmful. It's probably something that we should talk about getting rid of at some stage.

    But I don't think it's really fair to stop people from talking about how they like particular posters either. The format that we have is cruel in the sense that when you name someone it automatically means that you don't name a whole group of others who might in all honesty be just as valuable as your nominee, but it doesn't necessarily mean that you don't appreciate the other people just as much. People just ascribe different meanings to the title of the best new member and pick someone who is closest to the criteria they have set. If we called it "Most Constructive", for instance, it would instantly be completely different. It just seems like we're snubbing people and being awfully inconsiderate when there is no way for anyone to peer into the minds of those people making the calls and saying things.

    This entire category should be about user appreciation, and while I agree that it might seem unfair to many people and apologize if what I posted earlier hurt someone, I don't think it's completely unreasonable to say someone is a lock for the title. It doesn't really mean they're the best and the others aren't. Like, to me, Print is the one person whose contributions have helped shape the overall atmosphere and the direction of the forum the most this year, and I want her to win for that.

    But Epoida is by far the person with most effort put into being nice to others and making them smile, noob is the person who singlehandedly made the tournament that much more incredible, Purple Hermit is one of the most intelligent guys on the board, Robzilla is a quality poster who rarely ever falters, and all the others have their sides too. The only way to choose someone from that list is to decide what particular thing you want to draw attention to.

    I wish that there was a way to communicate all that to all the people in question, other than just hoping that they get nominated, but as long as this is the case you can only really give credit to one person.
