    It's up to the individual voter to determine what the qualifications for a given category are. If you want, say, Most Dedicated to apply to people who campaign endlessly in the Tournament, that's good. If you think it should be for somebody who combs through the internet to find various goodies, that's also good.

    The only time anything should ever be considered a lock for a category is if they're the only nomination, period.

    Wait, aren't we all forgetting one new member? One who rise from the ashes of our dearly departed parrot?

    I'm not a new member, lol. And I'm not even good.

    Honestly, just look at me. Here I am, trying to be nice and appreciative to as many people as I can because I more or less love them all, but I get caught up in a stupid choice of words because of an awful category that we have and end up sounding like an inconsiderate bastard which I really try to make a point of not ever being. To think that I was once nominated for Friendliest. =.=

In public, on a forum thread, and as an event coordinator. I don't think the problem is about an inherent aspect of the nature of the tournament as you kinda make it sound, we haven't had this problem for the past two awards IIRC. People can easily say that they appreciate someone without making it sound like they appreciate others less.

    Honestly, this is making me feel hugely uncomfortable now. I appreciate the sentiment, but yeah. Sorry.

    Things are a lot more fun when there's a sense of uncertainty about the whole thing. Just because I stand to benefit from this doesn't mean I don't think it so, and if Jabra's group award were I thing, I'd rather campaign for that XD

    Vote for me, don't vote for me, it's really up to you. I don't really have any business telling you what to do. But if this isn't fun then what's the point?

    I just. Argh. *flails helplessly*

    I could've sworn on my life that Robzilla has always been here.

    It's a hand in glove fit for that guy and the manga section. A section that desperately needs less stupidity.

    That brave little light facing unbelivable darkness might be slightly more deserving than Print.

    I thought it was so that Robby could make people stare at his avatar unblinkingly for ten minutes trying to catch every image in his avatar

    because that's what I do every time the avatar awards come around and his name surfaces

    Maybe try to pretend that everyone's talking about Fred?

    in fact we should just go ahead and set up a forum filter changing Print Error to Fred

    Hey, I remember people being slightly upset over the same thing in the past. I know I was at some point. It was just swept under the rug pretty quickly because people realized making a big fuss out of it made everyone feel bad and wasn't good for anyone.

    I don't know how saying that someone is going to win and that someone should win really differ, even as an event coordinator. If I say someone is going to win, I really only mean that I think that they have a good chance of winning the title on the basis of what I've seen people say and how I've seen them act. There's always the probability involved, unless people think that the coordinators would go and fix the results, which I'm not about to go and do as people should well know if they know me and the other mods at all. And despite being a mod, I still retain my right to normal posting.

    I'm not saying it in the fashion of everyone else being far below Print in any respect, or at least I'm not trying to. You of all people should know that much. :/

    Fred's my cousin. And my uncle. And my grandfather. One of those names that runs in the family, I guess.

    Anyway, just call me WK because I'm turning AWARD into AWKWARD.

    A land in turmoil cried out for a hero.

    He was Robzilla, a Scottish forumgoer forged in the heat of the powerlevel debates.

    The reasoning, the levelheadedness, the quotability. His posting would change the forum.

    So much serious thoughts about a topic so much more silly.

    All I'm saying is, I'm a shoo-in for Laziest Poster.

    Case in point, there is no Laziest Poster category, and I made absolutely no effort whatsoever to get one included!
