For next year's forum awards thread (which I think is ridiculous, as it promotes extreme behavior), please post the categories in some type of organized and logical manner. It's convoluted, and I really think there are too many categories that I think most people (including me) thinks this is a joke.

In fact, I don't think threads like this are at all necessary because the awards for good, kind, constructive, etc., behavior are not what gives the members who are awarded for their behavior the motivation for being the good people that they are.

In 2009, as nominated as the most clueless member (and I have no doubt that the forum awards started because of me), I cannot appreciate the insults I have gotten from these threads, and I guess I could report every post in here about me. I don't appreciate it. I deserve A LOT more respect than this. I still cannot fathom why it's almost preapproved for people to mock me, and it's okay, but it's not okay for others to be mocked. Am I man enough and smart enough to handle it? Yes. Should I have to "handle it". NO.

Also, please remove the childish, nonsensical, or vague/too specialized categories in the future as well such as the following. Well, that is if you want people to take this more seriously. Remember, we have nearly 30k members on here. How many unique users posted in this thread? I arrest my case.

Besides, there are too many categories as it is, and it seems that the number of categories continues to grow each year.



"Most Deserving of a Hug"
Um yeah.

"Mitchell G. Lane Award for Excellence in Dosing BJ"
What is this?!

"Calvin Le Award for Biggest Postwhore"
Yeah, great. Encourage the people who post mostly junk on the forums to continue to do it, and, while were at it, let's make a competition out of it.

"Most Deserving of a Ban"
This is not something that does any good. It's not up to us who gets banned or who doesn't. It's up to the admin and mods.

"Least Deserving of a Ban"
People still are bringing up poor Ben Whitmore, even new members who do not know him...it's a sick joke. People who don't know him talk about him (and say LOL Ben) acting like them know him to be "cool".

"Least Deserved Ban"
Great. You want us to question our authorities decision? How did they miss this?

"Best Beard"
This has NOTHING to do with forum activity.

"#BeatShon Award"
What is this?!

"Most Under-Appreciated Member"
You know, there are a lot of under-appreciated members. Many have been here for so long, and those that have not been here so long but help so often still might not be "appreciated". This opens up a can of worms.

"Most Overrated Member"
If you have this as an award, then why do you have this thread to begin with? I mean, very few people are actually casting votes in this thread, and thus these "results" are overly subjective as it is.

"Best Teeth"
Seriously?

"Best Troll"
Again, this is just great. Encourage a competition of who is going to be the best troll. Let the mods tell these members to not be trolls.

"Best Behaving Member"
How does this weigh? How can any one vote justify that a member is the "best behaving" if some members who are actually better people are not given the opportunity to show how well-behaved they can be. And if we define "best behaving" as not breaking the rules, then there are A LOT of ties because there are a lot of members who are abiding by the rules. Too subjective.

"Biggest Fanboy"
This encourages stalkers and spam posts.

"Greatest Return from a long hiatus"
This is too "specialized". I doubt there are that many returning members who contribute much to begin with to have an award for such a thing.

"Go Navy Beat Army award" and "Go Army Beat Navy award".
What does these two have to do with anything?

"Most Achieving WR" and "Least Achieving WR"
This is ridiculous. Any WR is overachieving.

"ColorfulPockets Award for Worst Judge"
I'm sure if a judge messed up, he or she regrets it and knows it. There is no need to kick them in the stomach when they are already down. This is supposed to be a family-friendly forum, is it not?

"Best Forum Awards Host"
How can we consider you (or whoever the current host is) when we have not seen you do your work until after the votes are in?

Well someone like taking the fun out of things.
While I can't say I agree with everything in Christopher's post, I do agree that some awards, such as biggest postwhore and a few others, should be removed. They only encourage some people (you) to start posting far less constructively the moment the forum award thread is posted. People also seem to have been purposely doing stupid edits since the time this thread was posted too in an attempt to be nominated for that award.
