James D. Posted December 2, 2006 Report Share Posted December 2, 2006 Okay, so since we are a website on the grow, Yoda has given me to go-ahead to give out awards for people who have contributed to the mainpage and The Show over this year. This is a good way to show passers-by on the mainpage and casual listeners of the Show that we are a serious website. (Maybe someone can make a pretty banner for this thing? :angel: ) The awards will be voted on by all of you and there will be a number of categories to vote on. You won't have to vote for all of the categories, but I encourage you to vote to show support for those of us who put a lot of time into our work. Anything that went up on the mainpage from January 1st, 2006 until December 31st, 2006 will be eligible to be voted on. The voting will start on January 1st, 2007 and it will be via e-mail. I don't have all of the categories yet, though, and obviously, there is still a month for more articles and whatnot to go up on the mainpage, so don't worry about voting until after New Year's Eve anyway. Here are some awards that I KNOW I will include: Best Overall Writer/Contributor ("Writer/Contributor of the Year") Best Movie Review Best Comic Book Review Best Anime/Manga Review Best Video Game Review Best Feature Article (non-review) Best Column Best Artwork Best Episode of The Show Best E2: The Show Moment Best Recurring Segment on The Show (Anticipation, etc.) Best Individual/One-Shot Segment on The Show (any individual review done by anyone) Best Video Anyone who contributed to a respective category during the year is eligible. You can win multiple awards. There is no limit. What I will encourage people who contributed to the mainpage to do is what Oratory writers used to do when they did the OA's--post a list of your favorite columns/articles/whatever in this thread later on (like the last week of this month) so people know what is eligible to be voted on from you. Now, if there are some other awards you want me to consider, post your ideas here. I'm going to be running this (Mike is busy enough as it is), so if you have any suggestions for anything, let me know and we can discuss it here. One thing I do want to seriously discuss is whether to let people who only read the mainpage and aren't yet forum members vote on the awards. I honestly have no qualms whatsoever either way, so if you have a preference, explain yourself. I'm leaning towards allowing it, though. I really want this to succeed, so give me some feedback.
