    2010 Forgies

    2007 Forgies

    Dunno where 2008 or 2009 might be . . . lost to the Great Server Lack o' Backup Disaster, I reckon.

    Holy inconsistent categories Batman!

    I take that back - the core categories are consistent, just less extemporaneous stuff.

    There really ought to be a "Best Libertarian" category - a lot of folks will get pissed if you assign them to right or left

    (some of these are not necessarily those who would be my first choice - but they do at least deserve to be nominated)

    Best Liberal/Left-Wing - actormike, Timmy, Spaceturkey <<(KIDDING!!!!!!!), John, MikeH,
    Best Conservative/Right-Wing - Bock, Zombie, Dr. Drake, Captain J, Jamie Whistler
    Red Room MVP - UA, Ramen, ShootER, Caboose, TKO
    Best Blog - Mrs.A, TKO, Bunnie (I don't follow as many of these as closely as I'd like)
    Best Avatar - Tamar, $corp, Frontline
    Best Newb - Sandbagger, Bickendan
    Best Moderator - there are no bad ones - nominate them all
    Funniest 'Forger - Muad Dib, John Castle, Forbin
    Most Creative - Dan Leech (photography) Forbin, Vladmir Jazz
    Master Debater - Async, Raoul, Paladin, Sandbagger <too soon?)
    Master Troll - garamet, Sokar, Faceman
    Techman Lifetime Achievement Award - Forbin, Bear, Mallory (at least deserves a mention under the circumstances), Bulldog

    (I'm going to assume the last category should never have a repeat winner)

    I know it's too late, but "master debater" and "master of rhetoric" should be different categories.

    I can't really complain about being out of the nominations this year, because to be fair, I haven't been around most of the year.

    :edit:

    Though if Tamar votes, I'd like to think I've got her nomination on Creativity. :D

    I was actually going off of demonstrated talent, not so much a specific contribution to the board.

    MrsA, TKO, I say we have a mud wrestling contest to determine who wins this one.

    Dunno why you're being singled out. There are as many definitions of "libertarian" as there are self-proclaimed libertarians. :shrug:

    The most recent criterion to be libertarian is that you must hate Mondays.

    (Garfield is a shining beacon of libertarianism for this very reason)

    Being convinced that anyone who doesn't agree with you is stupid is a good start.

    I find it highly amusing that a poster with an avatar representing one of fiction's most notorious anarchists is trying to enforce what passes for law and order in here.

    Amazing. The lack of self awareness. You've just perfectly described the liberal mindset. "Don't they understand how much smarter, better-educated, kinder and morally superior we are because they're stupid fly-over country red staters! Otherwise they would appreciate what we're doing to save the planet and mankind!".

    All delivered with a lot of sighs, over exaggeration and eye rolling.

    Awww fuck! This is the nomination thread.

    And I bit when the trifecta of stupid; hagforge, Mike and Sugartits threw it right down political shithole. That soapbox is never too far from you guys, is it?

    My bad. Please continue.

    First of all, these catagories suck.

    Here is my input...

    Best Liberal/Left-Wing - There is no such thing. They should all be shot.
    Best Conservative/Right-Wing - Jamie, Paladin
    Red Room MVP - $corp. Great threads about girls and other shit. Not just the same old political garbage.
    Best Blog - I don't read them.
    Best Avatar - Me. Robert Johnson holding Eddie's Frankenstrat? Brilliant.
    Best Newb - Sandbagger
    Best Moderator - We don't need moderators.
    Funniest 'Forger - Ramen
    Most Creative - Not sure, most of you are hacks.
    Master Debater - I'll have to think about this.
    Master Troll - Obviously me.
    Techman Lifetime Achievement Award - Gotta think about this one too.

    Wasn't best thread a catagory?

    For that, 'Don't come in here' by Sandbagger.

    I'll remember that the next time you ask for anything.

    Also...Thrill to the fun of 5,000 spambots taking over everything until you get to enjoy the silence when the board crashes without being maintained. :lol:

    Best Thread: My Avatar, Fuckers! :ramen:

    Best Post: (Thread, For Your Sins Against the Church of Global Warming) Post #46, cpurick

    Best Liberal/Left-Wing Douche: Well, assuming the importance is on "douche," it's a tie between Liet and Quas.

    Best Conservative/Right-Wing Knuckledragger: Again, assuming the importance is on "Knuckledragger," I'd have to go with Apostle.

    Red Room MVP: That's a tough one. I'd like to go with Paladin, but I'm suddenly drawing a blank as to some of the posts that made me choose him. Hell with it, sticking with Paladin.

    Best Blog: Don't really read them.

    Best Avatar: Why, Tamar's of course.

    Best Newb: Bickendale

    Best Moderator: Well since I've already nominated Tamar a few times, I'll go with Lanzman. Wait, does Lanzman count? If not, I'll go with O2C.

    Funniest 'Forger: Probably a tie between Forbin and Volpone.

    Most Creative: Paladin

    Master Debater: Async

    Master Troll: Seeing how bent out of shape some of you get about him, particularly recently, I've gotta go with Baba.

    Techman Lifetime Achievement Award: I don't really know enough about you people to make this call.

    No, for purposes of the Forgies, I do not count.

    I like to think I know when one of my witty bon mots wins your approval, because you've repped it. And my Blue Room thread already has a small but loyal readership.

    Thanks, O2C. At least one set of responses will be easy to process. :brood:

    And I believe CaptainChewbacca has already won the Lifetime Achievement Award.
