0Greetings all-
Not only has the site surpassed ten years online, but another important milestone was  hit. I noticed a few weeks ago, but wanted to make sure everyone had chance to focus on the 2016 Community Awards and voting.

Tjubs blog has reached over 1 million views for his awesome chaos dwarfs despite the fact of them being sold) Sad
http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/forum/showth...p?tid=3630

To the best of my knowledge this is the first thread on the entire site to reach this many views (probably one of the most replied to as well).

Congrats in the journey/endeavor Tjub.

Takes Hat off

0Community Awards 2016
The voting period is over and we have some winners of the community awards 2016.

First of all thanks you to all the Members who took time to nominate their fellow Dawi Zharr. Thanks to the members who actually votes on the different categories to let us find some winners!

We've included all your heart warning words attached to your nominations. There's far too much warmth here for you do Dawi Zharr. Better go skin a goblin, get some evil back in those hearts.

Let the awards be given!

Best Attitude -
Abecedar, A constant motivator, commentator and hobbyist over an extensive period of time, always positive and nice to read.
Always ready to pipe in and tell you what you need to hear (good or bad), and never leaves you wanting to give him ten lashes with your whip.


A member should be nominated on their forum presence and behavior toward other members, displaying exemplary attitudes of kindness and encouragement.


Best General -
MalornDK
,
for his massive nights long 8th edition battle, for his endurance, good tactical decisions and creativity in preparing the game.

14,000 Point Legendary Battle!!! His tactical analysis, strategic gambits (or fumbles), amazing battle report, and over all sharing the event with us from building the battle field and writing the scenario all the way to through to the actual weekend of mayhem it self was the most fun I've ever had war-gaming while not actually war-gaming.



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 -
Pappa Midnight
, Winner of the latest GH, but otherwise also an excellent and talented convertor and astonishing painter which does really inspiring models.

His high contrast work and color scheme exemplifies not only the gruesome burning darkness of the Chaos Dwarves, but also their over the top ostentatious style.

For the best red in the business.


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 -
Admiral
,  To say nothing of his work as a moderator or his numerous contributions as a writer of engaging lore and stories of Zharr-Niggrund I think his work on the extremely interesting and characterful Evil Dwarves of Ancient Times alone is enough to mark him as best contributor of the year- giving all of us new hobby fuel and more then a few great discussions about chaos dwarf society as we follow along with his progress and bounce around ideas with him as sculptor and fellow hobbyist.

His slow but amazing conversion work and excellent theme really pull the hobbyist portion together for me.  

The Dwarves of Ancient Times are a great addition to the Chaos Dwarf world. Exquisite quality, Extremely defined and detailed, and consistent in releasing new content to the range. Honorable mention to AtomTaylor who has released some great work in the way of old 3rd edition Dawi'Zharr and although the style isn't what i am looking for 2017 should hold some big hat variants of his work that will be great additions to my army.

Admiral's green stuff skills has reached new levels this past year and his productiveness is through the roof. I like it.

From the minis, to the bits, to the stories, Admiral as every angle covered when it comes to selling your soul to Hashut.


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 -
Admiral
.  Admiral for sculpting the wonderful Dwarves of Ancient Times, and working hard to create some amazing works with regards to his commercial thread and the additions to both Lore AND encouraging other members.  

With moderating the webpage the way he does as well as his updates to the "Of Ancient Times" range is always helping to improve CDO in many ways. Making this forum the best out there, not just for the topic but for the community and a good community needs someone like Bloodbeard and Admiral to keep things afloat, Great work to both of you but Admiral takes the ship! so with that said Honorable mention to Bloodbeard, slthough I have had little to do with him, from what I read is a good contender for the spot.

We should rename this the Admiral award. Year after year the lovely swede delivers an extraordinary amount of work to the glory of Hashut and our community. Even though 2016 has been less active than usual, Admiral is still the man <3  

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!

Thank you CDO
Thank you members for making this community what it is! Thank you for bringing content to out site! Keep it going.

Stay tuned for Artisan's Contest
There's another contest in the making and there a really nice prize lines up for the winner!

On behalf of the Staff.

  Community Awards 2016 - Nominations

0Fellow Dawi Zharr. Another great year has passed in Zharr-Naggrund and the CDO community. So it's once again time to show our appreciation of fellow members with awards.

Thanks to Carcearion we now have some medals for this!

Our newer members might have seen profiles with some impressive Golden Cups, this is the yearly Community Awards. Members are nominated and voted for by the community.  

Only 5 medals are awarded each year, special pixel bling never to be awarded again - as such these medals are held in high regard and it's an honour to receive a nomination.

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 2016. Anything that has been achieved in years past other than 2016 is not counted for nominations. So keep this in mind when nominating your fellow hobbyists.

So you guys have to do some work now. Go scout the sub sections, check the blogs, look at the dates and look back in your memories.

The categories for 2016 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?
The staff encourage you to supply the reason for your nominations. As these nice words should not be left only for the Staff, reasons will be posted as anonymous quotes in the upcoming voting threads.   If for some reason you can't think of who to nominate in a specific category, please 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 - some members shine through with their tactical knowledge and advice. Who's been posting battle reports, tactic and helping others with army lists? These should help you come up with a nominee.

Portfolio Post
Given the nature of the awards,  members are welcome to make a '2016 summary post' in the thread. Highlighting the best blog projects, count their number of games played, link their battle report section etc. It will not be counting as unsportsly or against the rules.

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! You can nominate the same person for different categories.

Nominations should include this:

Award Name
Member Name
Optional: 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 early February.  After this there will be a 2 week public poll to decide the winners.

Deadlines:
The deadline for sending in nominations is 11:59 PM EST (eastern standard time) January 24th, 2017. This gives a solid 2 weeks to get nominations in and prepare the polls.

Exempt Members
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, Admiral could be nominated for his work on organizing competitions and themes, but not for being excellent at moderating the forums (sticking threads, being sheriff etc.).  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, ask Admiral or Bloodbeard, we'll take it to the Staff section if we can't answer right away!  

Think about it all, find your nominees and send them in.

On behalf of all CDO Staff
