| Community Awards- 2013

|Another year down, another year for the Community Awards. For those new folks we have done this every year to recognize those outstanding individuals in the Chaos Dwarf Community who have really pushed our cause forward, are great members or just otherwise fun to be around. So in that vein the staff is announcing the 2013 Chaos Dwarf Community Awards.|
As in past years , at stake is the recognition of your fellows and the 2013 community award medals. These medals are one of the most coveted medals that one can win as it is voted on entirely by your peers based on your conduct on the site. No other medal on the site is dependent on your actions and standing amongst your peers. As such only 5 are given out in one calendar year.
So with all this now is the time to get your nominations in. REMEMBER: As in years past this is only for achievements in the year 2013. Anything that has been achieved in years past other than 2013 is not counted for nominations.
The categories for 2013 are unchanged from previous years and are as follows:
Best Attitude - A member should be nominated on their forum presence and behavior toward other members, displaying exemplary attitudes of kindness and encouragement.
Best General - This member is always ready to give advice on army lists, has very good lists of his own, and perhaps has won a tournament or two using his Chaos Dwarf army.
Best Hobbyist -A nominee for this award has contributed an amazing model, or models that exemplifies what a Chaos Dwarf army should look like: flawless execution of conversion and painting while adhering to the Chaos Dwarf mythos.
Best Contributor - This award will go the member that has contributed most to the cause of the Chaos Dwarfs. He or she has done or made something that has profoundly benefited the presence of Chaos Dwarfs as a whole!
Best Overall Member - This member may not be the best hobbyist, might not ever win a tournament, but he or she has a great presence on the site, the forum, the wiki, the chat and whatever else! They are dedicated to the cause of the Chaos Dwarfs!
What to nominate for?
I encourage you to supply the reason for your nominations. If you can't think of who to nominate for a category, do some research. If you don't know who the best general should be for example, take a look at the Gaming section of the forum. Who's been posting battle reports, tactic and helping others with army lists? These should help you come up with a nominee.
How to Nominate
PM your nominations to Staff (a special user that all Staff have access to).
NOTE: You can only nominate one person per category. If you can't decide which one, flip a coin!
Nominations should include this:
The contribution that should be recognized and why they should be recognized.
As in the past the nominations will be tallied and ranked. The top 3 members for each category will then be sent a pm asking them to accept or reject their nomination. If they accept they will then become an official nominee.
If a member rejects the nomination it will be offered to the person with the 4th highest votes, and so on. This may mean if a lot of people reject nominations, or there are not enough people nominated in a category there may only be 1 or 2 people to vote for (or potentially none).
If a person does not reply to the pm we will work on the assumption that they want it and it will automatically be accepted on the behalf of the Staff.
We will not tell people how many other nominees there are, nor will we reveal who the nominees are prior to the next posts that announces the official voting.
The final nominees' names will then be prepared in separate polls for all to vote on beginning in February. After this there will be a 2 week public poll to decide the winners.
The deadline for sending in nominations is 11:59 PM EST (eastern standard time) February 26th, 2014. This gives a solid 2 weeks to get nominations in and prepare the polls.
Note, any members with warnings outstanding will not be given the opportunity to accept a nomination. We will not discuss any of this with the community at large as this is only pertinent to the Staff and the member(s) in question.
The Staff CAN be nominated, HOWEVER, they must not be nominated for their staff-related duties. For example, Willmark could be nominated for his work on "X", but not for being excellent at moderating the forums. This way we are all on fair ground. We are dealing with what we offer the forum as members, not as staffers.
If you have any questions, just ask any of the Staffers! Send your nominations in as soon as you can!

Golden Hat XX - Open Theme
We had an excellent turn out of entries, with submissions spanning quite a range - from individual models, entire units, infantry, monsters, cavalry, to mini dioramas, and warmachines. It was great to see the fantastic work coming out of the Dawi Zharr forges! No doubt many a slave gave their feeble lives willingly for such great and admirable entries
And now, your winners!
<3rd (tie) <3rd (tie)
1st Place - Golden Hat Winner: Entry #8 - Fuggit Khan
2nd Place - Silver Hat Winner: Entry #15 - JMR
3rd Place - Bronze Hat Winner: Entry #2 - BABIS (tie)
3rd Place - Bronze Hat Winner: Entry #11 - Nicodemus (tie)
And an honourable mention to Entry #10 - Skink! (who trailed Bronze by 1 vote!)
As per the CDO contest rules, under the FAQ fineprint we clarified the rules for ties several years ago. Just scroll to the bottom of the post or do a find for "What happens if we get a draw?". The quick and dirty of it, if there are clear Gold and Silver medalists and a tie for Bronze, two Bronze medals are awarded.
The entry key!
You can share your love for each entry by donating slaves to the owners of the entries!

Slaves and medals are coming, as are 3 Veteran medals! Congratulations to our Veteran medal winners Abecedar (Silver), Nicodemus (Silver) and bas_2312 (Bronze)!
And now for the Big prizes:
I'll e-mail The Russian Alternative tonight and let them know who to expect an e-mail from. I will then send a PM to each of the winners with the e-mail they are to contact in order to supply their mailing address for The Russian Alternative to ship out the models directly. I have a couple of these models already, so I've decided to simplify the sorting of prizes and have removed myself from consideration.
As for the donated prizes.... C'mon down! Congratulations to:
Vogon you'll be going home with... a big hoard of bitz!
JMR you are about to be the proud owner of ... a blister pack of 4th ED Big Hat models!
DAGabriel, we're going to send you home with... a huge pile of plastic and metal Big Hat models, courtesy of Sticklander!
I'll leave it to the lot of you to sort yourselves out via PM for supplying mailing addresses and such. Vogon, contact me!
A big "thanks" to everyone who participated and voted, as well as a big thanks to Fuggit Khan and Sticklander for their prize donations as well!
Can't wait to see the blog entries for everyone who participated
P.S. A Big thank-you to Bloodbeard who made himself available at the drop of a hat (pardon the in-joke) to help select the random numbers for the prizes!.
| 2013 Happy Holidays from CDO

So there we were sitting in the lava spa (aka the the staff forum- filled with hot Dawi Zharr women, beer volcanoes and cheesecake) it was noticed that HB and AGPO who had been assigned to Slave Guard overseeing had too much Dawi Zharr Egg Nog and went into a deep slumber from which not even Hashut could awake them from.
The results? Slaves are running amok! So as present (read: offering) we have some slaves to add to your burgeoning (or in some cases) overwhelming collection.
So Happy Holidays from the CDO staff whatever you may celebrate.
Special thanks to CDO member Mostyn for the Santa Orc picture.

Welcome to the voting thread for the 20th Golden Hat modeling and painting competition, sponsored by The Russian Alternative!
How to vote:
Please submit 3 numbers as votes by sending a PM to Golden Hat, account (an special account all Staff members can access). We had 19 entries this time, which means each entrant will receive 19 slaves once the winners have been announced. Also, because there were more than 10 entries, there will be Gold, Silver, and Bronze Golden Hat medals to be awarded!
Each (more or less) anonymous entry is numbered ranging from 1 to 19. There is no need to specify which one you think is 1st, 2nd or 3rd. Simply list the three that you like we will do the rest.
Voting will close at 11:59 PM Dec 8th, 2013 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone). Once the votes are tallied we will post the results.
Remember, each winner will receive a unit of Dwarfs of Fire Canyon, a command unit and the Dwarf of Fire Canyon hero - that's 14 of these fantastically sculpted multi-part metal models to each winner!!
In addition,there will also be a random-draw giveaway for a veritable hoard of bitz (donated by me), and any participant could win!
Great job everyone and good luck!
Update Correction... 19 entries.
