Hello, everyone. This is the first of a hopefully annual series of threads that award different posters and threads on the Homestar Runner Wiki Forum for what they've done over the past year. Me and my hereby unnamed advisers have been working for a few days now to figure out the exact nominees for each award, and tried our darndest to work in as many Wikiers as we could. Unfortunately, we didn't come close. Please don't take offense if you aren't included- if I could, I would have added a dozen more slots for each award, to try to fit everyone in.

Anyway, here are the guidelines for the awards- please read them carefully before doing anything.
1. Awards: The awards are appropriately nicknamed "Joeys", in honor of our very own JoeyDay. They are in the form of a 100x100 picture, and will be sent to winners by PM a few days after they win. All Joeys won in a For Threads category should be placed somewhere in the thread, while all Joeys won in a For Users category should be placed in the winner's avatar or signature. You don't have to use the Joey at all if you don't want to.
2. Voting:To vote, send a PM to me. It should be written in the form of a multiple-choice test- the number of the category with the letter of the nominee you are voting for. Please vote once, and for only one person in each award. All voting ends on February 13th, and Joeys will be awarded on Valentine's Day. Feel free to post here with comments, but don't post any votes. This is so you don't hurt anyone's feelings.

Without further ado, the nominations for The 2005 Wiki Awards. Please don't be offended if you weren't chosen.

Thank you to everyone who has voted so far. ikipapa1, you're supposed to vote for everything, not just one topic, so... please vote for everything.

Thanks again for voting, and encourage others to vote too!

(You can vote for yourself, by the way)

Um, no. I wasn't. I did add "Strangest Question" for the sake of another topic, though.

To everyone who has not yet voted- please vote in all topics! Give everyone a chance!

Vote for the No-Relate Game in this years "Joey"s!

Oh, and I really, really, REALLY think that Snowthrower should be one of the choices for "Best Maker of Stuff", due to his awesome Compy 386 emulator (http://www.forum.hrwiki.org/viewtopic.php?t=1379)! I konw these nominees are kinda set in stone, but could you make an exception?

It looks like production has stopped on the Compy 386 emulator. Not like porplemontage, that guy makes some great custom emails and Homestar Runner media....

But then again, I'd vote for t0_t3h_m00n anyway because of her great drawings.

Poorest spelling? I'd vote for No_loafing. It was a joke. I saw an opportunity and went for it.

I'm agreeing with Warlord in the fact that El_Chupacabra isn't worth being on there, much less for the number 1 "Most Intelligent User". If anything,it'd be someone like Didymus or Buz or InterruptorJones.

I thank you all for your comments, I'll incorporate as much as I can in the 2006 Wiki Awards. Now, please vote. Please. Vote. Now.

I'd like to decline nomination for "Best Concept", since the "Can (a Christian) God Be?" really wasn't mine to begin with. It only has my name on it because I happened to split the topic at one of my posts.

Also, I'd gladly give up my nomination for Best Admin/Mod if it meant Tom could rightfully claim his nomination.

But hey, it's your awards.

Though if you're going to do this again, I strongly recommend that you let the community make nominations themselves. It makes for a more drawn-out process, but then nobody feels like you left them out on purpose.

I don't have a problem with most of the nominations...(I'll keep my opinions on the specific ones private, so as not to hurt anyone's feelings), but I when I saw the subject heading I thought you were going to do WIKI awards, not FORUM wiki awards. Maybe if you feel up to it, you could make some about the wiki itself. Really, on the forums, it's just a bunch of people discussing stuff. No offense, gang. :cheatgrin:

Yeah, I'm really wondering about the last category myself, though I don't have any comments on El_Chucabra. My problem is with fossilise_apostle being on there. He's only got 45 posts (and he hasn't posted since September), and most of them are on his "Did Jesus have epillepsy?" thread. He basically stole the premise of that thread from his favorite tabloid TV show, and I think most of the atheists in the room would agree with me that the idea doesn't have much merit.

Sorry to darken what is an otherwise great thread. The other nominations are great. I'm flattered that I was included, though I'm not sure I should've received so many nominations. Everyone deserves to win here, and it's fun to look back and honor those who've made some of the best contributions.

Good luck to all the nominees!

Ah...dah... um... okay...

Well, first off, nice to see you back, Joey. Secondly, I plan to remove "Most Intelligent Posts" next year, since it caused so much... controversy. Third, I suppose a quickie thread involving nominations (first three people to be nominated and seconded) might work next year... and, um, fourth, I have no idea what topics might go into awards about the Wiki itself, since I can never find anything that needs fixing/updating, and I don't get there fast enough to do anything with new toons. Therefore, I don't get on the Wiki a lot, except for the new emails. So... StrongCanada, would you please specify, and everyone else, would you please vote?
