    PLEASE READ regarding Clonies awards

    Fanatics -

    Just a quick heads up regarding these CF awards...PLEASE be respectful when voting, commenting, etc. Disrespect will not be tolerated. If this turns into a name calling contest, we will shut it down. Thanks in advance. Please keep things in good taste and have some fun.

    Maybe you can put some incentive for one of the talented graphic artist on the forums to come up with a logo.

    As for the voting, how do you/mods want to handle this? I can sort everything if needed this upcoming weekend when the nomination process is over.

    I take credit for alerting chris to this, AND pushing for a nomination and polling for winners AND award phase.

    but I only take credit for those things.

    For your contributions, you shall receive a hilariously large cookie with the likeness of Keanu Reeves burned into its center.

    For those derailing the threads and the end result being the mods have to delete the awards thread, quit being a fun hater and just live by the rules.

    Re: PLEASE READ regarding Clonies awards

    If this ever gets repeated, it would be much better to focus on one category at a time over several days. Start with a minor one and work up to one like the thread of the year. It would keep the front page cleaner and allow for more discussion on each individual topic.

    Oh it will become an yearly tradition based on the feedback from Chris and some of the other mods. I do agree with you that I could have organized this better and will leave it to the mods to see about creating a system or new section for this tradition going forward.

    Not going to lie, how on earth was this ever a good idea? As a collective bunch, we are a bunch of idiots, and this will probably never work out and go the way you guys think it will.

    Different awards for different threads, posters, etc. I believe you have been nominated for a couple of awards.

    Hopefully if he wins the banning one, his award speech will come with a pre-emptive apology thread for getting banned again.

    It would if people just did what the process called for, but they won't so you are probably right.
