The 2009 WTF! Forum Awards- Submit your nominations!

Postby Venus » Sun Dec 06, 2009 10:20 pm

As we approach the end of the year, the 2009 What The Folk! Forum Awards are a way of celebrating the past year. In the first section, you can cast your votes for your favourite FOTC related projects. The second section contains various categories in which you can vote for particular forum members.

How this works
You are only limited to ONE nomination per category
You aren’t allowed to nominate yourself
You can nominate the same member for a maximum of 4 categories
It isn’t necessary to vote in every category but it would be great if you could

Everyone who is a member of this forum is eligible to nominate and be nominated so think carefully about your choices.

To cast your votes, copy the list of categories below, fill in your nominations and PM me your choices by December 21st.

Looks very good, Venus. :thumb:
I'm going to have to think about a couple of these. It covers a variety of territory, so it should make for a fun time.

Thanks, Nancy. :)

I also just wanted to add that I'll be tallying up everyone's votes and declaring the winners in each category from those votes rather than shortlisting, just to make things easier.

Happy voting! :D

Ooooh this is going to be fun! Thanks for putting it togeter, Venus. I think section one will be a lot easier than section two. I'm with Nonch. Narrowing it down to just one member in all those categories will be tough!

Wow, this looks like so much fun! :D

Most of these my votes come straight to my head, but I'm definitely going to have to think long and hard about quite a few of them.

No problem, everyone! Yes it is tough but it'll be very interesting to know the final decisions everyone makes. :)

It's so exciting that I'm already receiving votes from members! :D

Active lurker -an oxymoron I can't get my head around.

I already know I won't be able to answer many of the FOTC related ones so I won't bother hurting my head with them.

Do the winning forum members get trophies or a sash? I wanna win something and I'll bribe people if it comes to that. :snakeman:
