As Pat mentioned a few weeks ago, I think we should have board awards. It also sounded like Pat would be willing to help with badges for the winners. I figured now would be a good time to do this if we end up doing it yearly, considering we're in one of the quieter periods right after signing day.
For the categories, I figured we keep them somewhat limited in order to make the awards a little more exclusive. I have three categories right now and would like to add 1 or 2 more. If anyone has any others they feel we should add, feel free to share. (some to consider: funniest poster, smartest poster, biggest troll (I'm guessing these awards need to be positive), most optimistic poster, etc.)
Poster of the Year - self explanatory
Biggest contributor to the board - videos, twitter thread, good analysis, etc.
Best thread of the year - winner is the OP
Once we get the categories solidified, I'll update the original post and then we can vote on the winners.
That's a close race between Spulv, newera and Helweigen?

It would be a complete injustice if Mel is not recognized for her great work in the twitter thread. Not that I am trying to sway votes, but just sayin...
I'm having some trouble with this one...who exactly would be the candidates?
Definitely the dude from Bama. His username escapes me at this time.

I cant vote on the twitter one, I have read it 2 times (bout 3 pages each time) since its existence I think lol. If its important, it finds it way to a "real" thread(take that twitter world! just messin) :D

Sig of the year could be another category. Poster of the year and biggest contributor to the board seem too similar imo. I love the idea and we could set these awards on the same day every year.

May I suggest that day be April 9th (4/09)?

These awards aren't complete without "most delusional" and "most cynical" categories.
Most Anzalone? Guy who is a fan of a new(-era) team each week...
I like Poster of the Year and Best Contributor.
I think Poster of the Year should of course be one specific poster, but I wouldn't mind seeing a top 5 of posters getting a best contributor badge.
We have a pretty large community and I think having five or six posters with a badge would be better than two.
If winning was easy even losers would do it.
I'll let you guys make suggestions for another day or two and then we'll settle on the categories. I like separating Poster of the Year and Best Contributor. Not saying they're completely exclusive, but there are differences in my opinion and it gives a "reward" to the people who add a lot to the site.
We need some fun "negative" ones. More light-hearted ribbing than mean-spirited (albeit warranted) put downs.
Get brainstorming on some.
Not sure if this would work because it could be difficult to determine, but insider of the year - user with the most inside knowledge.
I knew you were gonna say that, due to my insider info.
biggest homer? reward would be a badge of barry bonds face?
Best impersonation of chicken little....badge could just be
A 'part timer' badge for anyone over 10k posts.
A 'fire starter' badge for anyone with a 50 rating or below.
Best new poster for anyone under 20 posts
Mel needs a badge one way or another. Love reading the player's thoughts on Twitter. Guy spends a crap load of time putting them up which is appreciated. Can the site get rid of some old ones though. Don't really care what Ryan Switzer said 9 months ago. Yes u can click to the end but still...
click the green envelope at the side of the thread, takes you to where you left off last. And Mel is a she.
