Hello fellow ToOers! I am very proud to be the first guest host of The ToO Boardie Awards!
As you know, unless maybe you just joined this year, the Boardie Awards is a great event Marvin came up with last year to celebrate some of the wonderful members of this community. He had the idea to have it hosted by someone different each year, like real awards shows are, and I thought that was really neat and was honored to get the offer to head this first reprise.

The ToO Boardie Awards allow you, a member of the ToO, to nominate deserving users for several categories. Some are genuine and some are just silly, but all are a fun way to recognize the great people that make this a great site.
All you have to do is write in the name of a member who you think deserves each recognition. You have until December 31, 2014, 11:59 p.m. EST to submit your votes. You may either PM them to Marvin or post them here. Below are some common sense rules to make sure everything goes smoothly.

  • Please don't remove any of the categories. If you don't wish to make a nomination for one of them simply leave it blank.
  • If you have any questions or comments, do not post them in this thread. This thread is solely for posting your nominations. A separate thread has been created for questions/comments.
  • Do not vote for yourself; if you do your vote will be disqualified. For the categories in which a pairing must be put, you may not nominate a pairing you are in. You may not ask people to vote for you.
  • Don't play favorites; only nominate the people who you genuinely believe deserve it.
  • Only nominate one person per category, unless it's a couple/pairing.
  • Take your time in choosing and pick carefully! For ease of tallying votes, once you have submitted your nominations it is final. If you edit your post your votes will be disqualified.
  • Please take note that for the Favorite Old Member/Newbie and the Man/Woman of the Year categories the member that you nominate must meet the board age requirement listed. If he/she does not, that nomination will be disregarded.
  • When voting, please do not refer to a user by their real name unless that is also their username (for example, Brad). Don't put Josh for Marvin, JJ for American Eagle, etc. ToO usernames only.

Now without further ado, behold the categories! Remember, you have 2 weeks to make your nominations.

Just so you all know, I thought LONG and HARD about all of these (with several I reallyyyy wanted to put down more than one member. It was so difficult to choose just one). Some were without question for me. But others... seriously had me staring at my screen for an hour. Some were chosen out of personal experience with these people, and the rest were chosen based on what I saw around the board (and chat room). I also tried to base things from what I saw/experienced from people throughout this year (specifically). And of course I made an effort to put a name down for every category.

Like last year I’ll post my nominations publicly now that everything is decided, just for reference, along with my reasons for choosing who I did.
Most are the same as last time which makes sense because I gave much thought to them then so the reasoning is just as sound a year later, but I didn’t just repeat my list automatically, I made sure I still thought each member was the best for the category. I also left some out this year as I didn’t feel a real draw to nominate for some categories I had before, and there was one new addition this year. (Long way of saying I know my nominations look very similar to last year’s, but I assure you I didn’t just repeat everything, I gave all the categories proper consideration for the current year and simply reached many of the same conclusions as I had before.)
Favorite Old Member: Catspaw
She’s still everyone’s favorite member.

The Most Quotable Poster: The Top Crusader
Whether he’s being silly, serious, or using his famous wit, the way he says things is quite quotable.

The Cutest Real Life ToO Couple: CAT
Because of stuff like this.

The Most Missed Member: StrongNChrist
Like last year, this was a loaded category. There’s no way she won’t win this every time, it needs reworked for next year. It’s a given that the most missed in general is SnC, I don’t think it would be disrespectful to direct nominations elsewhere going forward. If it’s just the same member time after time then the category is useless, even if that member is the right choice.
There should be a stipulation added that the nomination should be for a member that could eventually return to us, thereby relieving the sensation of being missed. That is, someone who is missed because they have simply gone inactive. That is an aspect I would like to see the awards take on, but it will never happen with this format because however much you may miss someone who has gone currently absent, it can’t compete with someone who tragically will be missed permanently.

The Most Likely To Be Modded Member: American Eagle
Like last year, he’s not my personal first choice for a mod (not that I have anything against him, he does a good job), but the category doesn’t ask for your choice it asks for most likely, and the record is clear that the most likely mod is definitely AE.

The Most Inspiring Member: Catspaw
She’s such a genuinely great person, she inspires me to try to follow her example.

The Sweetest Member: Catspaw
She always has a kind word for everyone and takes a gentle approach to everything, even testy situations.

The Most Sarcastic Poster: The Top Crusader
Again, because of the way he puts things. They’re profound thoughts, but often presented in ways that at first catch you off guard from recognizing his great insight.

Most Likely to be Eaten by a Dinosaur: The Top Crusader
Because he’s the only member I know to have already been involved with a dinosaur.

Most likely to never leave The ToO: The Top Crusader
If he was going to leave it would have happened by now, but he has not only been here since the very beginning, he has never wavered in his activity or engagement.

The Manliest Man: The Top Crusader
It has to be Top, he has a Faction about it.

The Best Debater: John Chrysostom
Because he has the ability to competently and earnestly debate on nearly any subject, and has the stamina to stick with it through pages and pages of long and convoluted posts. I don’t know how he does it, I couldn’t.

The User With The Worst Grammar: Cbriggs45
No explanation necessary. This is clearly the only correct answer, I am shocked no one else ever puts it.

The Best Advice-Giver: The Top Crusader
No contest. He has life experience which gives itself to providing truly thoughtful and caring guidance, so much so that he made a thread for it to be able to share his great wisdom. I have taken advice received from Top to heart and applied it to my real life and I am truly grateful for his input. It was very meaningful and beneficial to me.

Best Screen Name: IrishTiger
From the first time I saw it I thought it was just a really great name.

The Wittiest Poster: The Top Crusader
Yet again, because the way he puts things is just so clever, but it seems like he doesn’t have to even try to make it that way, he just naturally has a wonderful wit.
