    Lets do 8 awards. The topics I have are as follows:

    1. Most Respected Member
    2. Most Knowledgeable Member
    3. Most Argumentative Member
    4. Best member who is a fan of an opposing team
    5. Rookie of the Year
    6. Draft Guru
    7. Member I'd most like to meet
    8. SOJF of the year

    I will post the threads to begin the nomination process. You will nominate 3 members in each topic. This will go on for 3 weeks then I will post a thread for each topic with the top nominees for the final vote. The final vote will take 4 weeks which will put us right up to the beginning of training camp.

    Use the time frame from 2012-April 2013 for your nominations.

    Remember to have fun with this -- if you noticed the topics were positive. If this goes as a success, next year we can bring back some more topics.

    Do not nominate yourself

    Maybe best mod would be a cool award if you're looking for another one.

    Murrell, why did this come back?

    Most of the people with ego enough to care about it are gone.

    You'll be reminded of that constantly in the vote threads. Most of them still post.

    There has to be another answer.

    Don't get me wrong, i got a selfish ego boost from this shit. I like my TGG people.

    But I think it's detrimental.


    Maybe post reps aren't a bad idea compared to this.

    Some people asked for it to be back and I thought it could keep us busy for a little bit.

    What is post reps?

    I take it there aren't any Homers on the site and that's why there's no such category. Just SOJF's. Riight..

    It's a built in function of UBB that allows you to give credit to people for their posts. I have never liked it, although it seems like a better option than this.

    These awards always seemed like a popularity contest. I won a few, and TBH, never really felt good about it in the long run.

    Having people respond favorably to your posts should be reward enough.

    Just my take.

    and you act like SOJF is some kind of compliment. Then again, there aren't any HOMERS on this site so, there's no category for it.

    What's good for the goose and all that..

    I mean, I wouldn't mind, but it's whatever. I just find your indignation over the whole thing odd.
     
  13. Satire?

    Satire? Guest

    because it's a fucking pro sport. if you can't see and address another person's perspective of a team equally just cause you like your team so much you pretty much are a biased person obsessed with something very insignificant in life. i'm not directing that at you, for the record, just a general statement.

    *waits for someone to pull up some dirt from some of my old posts that contradicts everything i just posted*
