Default The 2010 Musicbanter Awards - Discussion Thread

It's that time of year again where you all start to post more and be nicer to each other. Of course, it is MB Awards time.

MB Awards give us the opportunity to reflect on the last 12 months here, all the new members to have joined, all the trolls that have annoyed us, all the journals that have entertained us and all the mods that have infracted or banned you.

This years awards process will be much similar to last years, as that seemed to work well. An initial nominations round will be created where you will be given a list of nomination categories (Best new member, funniest member, member of the year etc) and the opportunity to vote for any MB member you wish in each category. This will then allow me to draw up a multiple choice list of candidates for each award based on the submissions of the community as a whole and will commence a voting round where you can vote for the member you want to win each award.

This seems to me to be the fairest way AND the funnest way to do this. It ensures that your vote is counted but also that if the member you nominated doesnt make the list, you can still participate fully in the voting round.

The purpose of THIS thread is to give you guys a few days to come forward with any suggestions you may have regarding the category list, the voting process or any part of this if you feel we can make it better than last year in any way. I can't guarantee that I will be able to use your suggestion in any way but they will all be considered.

Once this thread is closed, the nominations will begin and any suggestions you may have had will unfortunately not be able to be implemented. I don't know when this thread will close just yet but chances are it will be locked on the Monday the 13th December.

The list of nomination categories last year were as follows.

# Most Underrated Poster - The site's biggest underdog - someone who's positive impact on the forums is generally underappreciated or often goes unnoticed
# Smartest poster - The forums smartest member
# Most Missed Poster - The one you miss the most of members who went away.
# Best Journal - The best journal
# Biggest Drama Whore - The member who most often surrounds him or herself with drama
# Sexiest Member - The member with the most sex-appeal
# Best argumentalist - The member who's best at discussing and communicating intelligently
# Worst argumentalist - The member who's presence in a discussion is usually the most disruptive
# Best Writer - The member who writes the best reviews, rants, whatevers!
# Biggest music nerd - The member who's most knowledgeable about music
# Biggest wacko - The craziest member on the site
# Most boring member - The member whose posts makes you yawn the most
# Funniest member - The guy or gal who most often makes you laugh!
# Angriest member - The bitterest member, a cynic who often responds with hostility and bitterness towards new and old members
# Nicest member - The kindest member, always treats people with respect and makes an effort to be nice
# Biggest Troll - The member who's presence anywhere in the forums is most disruptive
# Biggest contributor - The member who's posts and threads have contributed the most to the overall quality of the site
# Most Improved Member - The member who's somehow improved the most in his or her behaviour on the site
# Most virtuosic - The member with the highest level of skill with an instrumental ability
# Best avatar - The member who ever had 2009's coolest avatar
# Moderator of the Year - The moderator who's work and efforts are the most appreciated
# Best new 2009 member - Your favourite member from those who joined the site in 2009!
# Member of the Year - The member we love the most

Were there any you felt were not worth it? Any we could add or change? Or are they good enough as they are?

Wacko can probably go. Thats one of those "look how zany I am!" things that only serves to encourage annoying people.

I think a category should be "Best Thread Starter." In my opinion, great threads start with a great OP. And there's a lot of due credit to those folks who kick-start some really great discussions with some really great questions.

(No, I do not think I do this, I sincerely believe this should be a category not for personal gain.)

I think Wacko could stay, I have one person in mind that definetly has problems.
And I agree about Thread Starter, great idea.

So would that be for the member who people think consistently start the best threads? Or would it be for "Best Thread?"

No I think best thread is a seperate thing. That award is for a thread, this would be for a person.

i.e. thanks for putting thought and effort into being here. Its almost like the anti-troll award.

So is not similar to this?
Biggest contributor - The member who's posts and threads have contributed the most to the overall quality of the site

Sorry, I just not might not be completely understanding you.
