Chaos Dwarfs Online Community Awards 2009Grimstonefire 01-30-2010

With the Golden Hat well on the way it's time to roll out the community awards.

2009 was quite a good year I think.  We had a lot of excitement with rumours about things, some really great fan lists and of course even more awesome Word of Hashuts to read.

Our membership base continued to increase at a fairly consistent level, helped in part with all the cool competitions we do.

I was saying to the staff the other day that I think we must be quite rare as a forum in that we have had an almost constant cycle of contests for so many years.

Anyhow, it's time to get your nominations in.  REMEMBER:  This is only for achievements in between the community awards in 2009 and now.  Anything that has been achieved in years past other than 2009 cannot be counted.

Please remember everyone that even if you are not nominated for anything it doesn't mean that we as a community don't recognise your personal contributions to the site (and possibly the CDO cause).  This is all just a bit of harmless fun really, so don't take it too seriously. Cheers!

The categories are:

Best Attitude - A member should be nominated on their forum presence and behaviour 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, as it will be interesting to put some of them in the Word of Hashut.  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).  

You can only nominate one person per category.

Nominations should include this:

Award Name
Member Name
The contribution that should be recognized.

In a change from previous years, 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 by a certain deadline.  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 that 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.

We will not tell people how many other nominees there are.Wink

The final nominees' names will then be prepared in separate polls for all to vote on beginning 12th 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  EST (eastern standard time) 10th February 2010.

Exempt Members

Note that any members with warnings outstanding will not be given the opportunity to accept a nomination.

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 the Webzine, 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!  Send your nominations in as soon as you can!

Remember this thread anyone:

http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/forum/showth...876&page=1

If like me you have forgotten who you've had in mind all year it may be useful.

I have set the deadlines with what I felt was reasonable, but I understand that Willmark wants to get the winners into WoH.  So he may need to adjust the deadlines a bit to work in with his deadlines.

Ahh I understand! Evil idea

This Snotling is a symbiosis of Robin Hood, Batman and William Wallace! Happy

A guy who gives us hope and confidence! Takes Hat off

Sad that I made my suggestions and so I cannot nominate him anymore ... but there will be others to take this task! Wink

RE: Chaos Dwarfs Online Community Awards 2009Grimstonefire 02-11-2010

This is now closed for nominations.  I am sending out all the pm's now.

Edit
I've realised that I did not give you all very long to reply, so ignore what it says in the pm, as long as I know before end of sunday please.

Another edit
All but 1 person replied (and accepted) so far, so I will start the polls tommorow.

As you may have noticed the polls are now up!  They are all 14 day, so at the end of this the winner in each category will get a medal, unless there is a draw and we need another poll.

Would have been nice if you would had supplied the reason for each nominations. I find it really hard voting when those I have nominated didn't made the cut. Would make it easier if I knew what others has been nominated for.
