    Me at the beginning of 2017: "I'll mark all the funniest posts this year so I know which one to nominate"

    Me now: "What happened in 2017 again?"

    The only thing I have a clue to nominate for is the video game section.

    It was a toughie nominating Best Thread. Now that I made my choice, someone needs to nominate Love & Loathe 2.

    Someone also needs to nominate the Redon thread for best thread.

    I say this unironically. It was sweet to see the forum's outpouring of (misplaced) sympathy.

    I am debating between Best: Bounties after Whole Cake...and Kingdom. I had interesting discussions on both. Actually Kingdom might not qualify.

    For Worst: Morgan's Big Scoop. But I feel it is an infringement on Rule, Jr. I will keep thinking.

    Can I nominate the rule between VIII and X as the best rule?

    That probably goes down a rabbit hole of people making increasingly more ridiculous posts to the point that it's not even funny anymore.

    It's true that most of the posts are just random (and often silly) predictions, but I believe there are a few worthy ones nonetheless.


    Anyway, I'll wait for other opinions. I don't want my request to be buried on the first answer

    I agree with Jabberwok - to make a post to be considered funniest you have to have a pretty good sense of the atmosphere around the thread and play off of that, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't and it doesn't become a main focus if it doesn't. A more free association-oriented thread like Dumb Predictions is more likely to take a turn for the worse since it's easier for people to try to aim for reward bait with just about anything.

    Since a lot of the threads here have become more centralized these past few years, maybe we should consider new guidelines for thread awards in the future. Like a thread can be eligible if it has, say, 250 posts made in that year or something like that.

    I'd like to give a special shout-out to Katzztar for being the first-ever person to nominate me for one of these things. :D

    For best new member, if the person joined around 29th of December 2016, would that put them out, or still close enough?

    You want to nominate our good old friend Big Black Hole, eh? Excellent choice. All I can say is that I also hope they can be considered since three days is hardly enough time to establish a memorable presence on the forum.

    Close enough, if they joined late in the year, people probably still wouldn't be very familiar with them.
