Thread: AP Awards Announcement and Celebration Thread

    Default AP Awards Announcement and Celebration Thread

    So I hear some people want to know the results; well, you're getting them two ways.

    First though, as always, I'd like to thank everybody involved with both this and the Character Tournament. Toraish in particularly for organizing things this year. Special thanks to Sai-Chan also. There's a lot of work behind the scenes on the forum events but it's always fun because of the efforts on both sides. This year was particularly interesting for both; voting was down for both (though only slightly for the Awards) but we had a ton of close contests in both and some really interesting upsets along the way. I had to break six ties after all the ballots were counted this year and I don't think I've seen that happen before in all the times I've done this. That's probably as many votes as I've cast in a couple of these combined. Quite a few of these Awards were decided by one ballot or less and there weren't really many runaways like there usually are. Certainly not in the Member Awards, which were pretty competitive throughout.

    So, anyway, the winners.

    But first:



    Because, really, what's an awards show without Neil Patrick Harris?

    Drum roll please:



    Close enough.

    The Awards show version:

    So yeah I lost the one category I was nominated for. Not the least bit surprised though, and to be honest, though I voted for myself, I definitely feel Daz deserves the title of best debater on the forum more.

    Glad Mera Mera won its deserved place as worst thread of the year.

    Kind of saw Pokémon's victory coming, even though I definitely feel ALBW deserved it more (Seriously, that's my game of the year period). And I still feel Ni No Kuni is incredibly overrated, and this is as a fan of JRPGs. Don't know why, but it just fell flat to me in a number of ways.

    Overall most of the picks were good and were within expectations

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Oh yeah, congrats to everyone who did win.

    So I crept out of bed just to see if the awards had been announced >_>

    I would like to thank my chair for giving me support, and to my back for being behind me all of the way. And here's to you, oxygen - this wouldn't have possible without you.

    Seriously, though, thank you to everyone who voted for me as Best New Member! I honestly feel I had some very deserving competition for this particular title, and however much a Supernova I may be now, I am proud to be part of the Worst Generation. In the One Piece sense, obviously. And ultimately, I'm just glad to be a part of this site and this community. I'm glad I joined, and I would have been even without this award, or any of the nominations.

    I'd say more but I kind of need to be back in bed.

    Congratulations to all the winners! Some very deserved accolades here. And the nominees too - a lot of these were really hard choices to pick. You guys are awesome.

    Who's the parrot? :P

    The greatest achievment of this years tournament was that it managed to bring Chrissie back for an entire post.

    And what would an award ceremony be without some actual awards? This year, we bring back the old tradition of awarding every individual Member Award winner with an award image that they can display in their signatures throughout the year.
