Thread: Nominations and Candidates Thread

  1. #1

    Default Nominations and Candidates Thread

    *This is not the Discussion or Rules Thread. Nominations only!*







    There, unlike the previous years, it's written in large, bold letters this time around. Let's see if people notice it any better than usually. Have fun, everyone, and please go read the rules unless you already have. It will make things run smoothly and save a lot of our time and energy.

    Nominations are only open for the bolded categories. The list of all categories is below. Only nominate candidates for categories that are currently open.

    Once opened, each category will remain open until the necessary number of candidates (10) is reached or, in the event of a category not reaching that many nominations, whenever an Event Mod decides to close them and open the next ones. Several categories, including especially the paired ones, will be opened simultaneously to speed things up.

    Eligible candidates for the Members of Threads/Post Awards are posts that were made on this board or members who were active within the previous year. When nominating a post or a thread, please provide a direct link if at all possible or as specific a description as you can manage if not. In the case of specific discussions that took place within a thread, link to the first pertinent page and tell which pages are in question. Nominees that take too long to find will be ignored and nominees that no longer exist are disqualified. Unless you can provide a screenshot.

    We have also done a bit of a clean-up with the tournament staff and removed some of the old categories that didn't ultimately seem very necessary. Don't be alerted if a category you're looking for isn't on the list. It's not a mistake, the category just simply isn't there this year.



    NOMINATIONS ARE OVER! THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO MADE A NOMINATION!

    Okay folks, first of all, if a thread has already been nominated, it does NOT need to be nominated a second time.

    Second. I know that opinions will vary, and one man's trash is another's treasure. And that there ARE in fact occasions where a wonderful, rewarding entertaining thread full of discussion can ALSO be an awful terrible thread full of idiots or people constantly needing a chewing out, especially in threads that go for months and hundreds of pages, or the sheer awfulness of something can make it great (Like the Naruto threads) so "Best" and "Worst" aren't mutually exclusive. Sometimes a thread can be both.

    But I'm going to have to insist you guys think twice about nominating a thread that's already been nominated for it's opposite. Once is a thing, and yes, its quirky when a thing can be good and bad all at once. But when it keeps happening it starts to seem like you're nominating something *just* to be contrary.(And we suddenly get four opposite noms within three posts...)

    The staff needs to discuss it some before having an official decision on these opposite noms, since it hasn't been an issue in the past, and in some cases it makes sense for a thing to be in both categories, but we'll probably end up judging on a case by case basis if this turns into any sort of thing.

    There really should not be this much conflicting overlap this soon in such a broad category that encompasses the entire site.
    To support Viz hosting all Jump manga for FREE and day of release, Arlong Park will now support the official release.

    Official chapter discussions now start Sundays at Noon, EST.
    Please do not post threads when scan sites release their version, and just discuss those releases in the spoiler thread.
