Community Awards 2014 - NominationsBloodbeard 01-27-2015

Fellow 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.

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 2014. Anything that has been achieved in years past other than 2014 is not counted for nominations. So keep this in mind when nominating your fellow hobbyists.

The categories for 2014 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.

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
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) February 10th, 2015. 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.

//Bloodbeard

Quite an interesting practice you have on the forum! Cheers!

I cannot obviously vote for anybody here, since I am a new member and have a very limited knowledge about you, guys, and the forum in general. But I definitely hope to get acquainted with most of you during the following year. And hopefully I shall participate next year. Happy

Good day, ladies and gentlemen! Takes Hat off

RE: Community Awards 2014 - NominationsFuggit Khan 01-29-2015

I have a clear idea of who I want to nominate for Best General, Best attitude and Best Overall Member...but I'm torn between choices for Best Hobbyist and Best Contributor. I can think of three people who (in my opinion) are deserving of Best Hobbyist, and two people for Best Contributor.
I'm going to have to spend more time going through army blogs and other posts, but I'm starting to fear I may have to resort to simply flipping a coin to decide among them, they are all equally great (for varying reasons, some are great painters, some are great at conversions, etc).

Sad

Did it...my nominations are in.
This was really tough, there were simply too many people all who are deserving to be nominated for their fine contributions.
And so I finally resorted to just rolling some dice to decide on a couple of my choices...perhaps not the best way to decide, but it seems only fitting that a Hobgoblin would let fate to be decided by a roll of the dice Hobgoblin

Best luck/wishes to you all...it was a great year Cheers!

Just giving this a bump. plenty of active members around who still haven't send in any nominations. Remember you don't have to nominate people in all categories.

Also remember the deadline for Scribe's Contest II is the 8th february.

One week left to put in your nominations. I advice both active and passive members to do this. Still a lot of the active membera who hasn't nominated anyone.

Maybe not everyone check the website news. So to all members I suggest you do some advertising.  Throw a link for this thread in your blog or something like it. If we can push a few more people into throwing in some nominations - it'lit'll be all the more fun.
