View Full Version : 2010 Unown Awards: Nominations

1st November 2010, 12:07 PM
Welcome to the 2010 Unown Awards!

First off, yes, you're in the Misc. forum, however, with PCG shifting its focus to all games, we've decided to move the Unown Awards here this year considering this is where the TPM Awards have been held in past years.

This is the nomination round, which will last for two weeks, putting the deadline for nominations at November 15, 2010.

So with that, let's get started!

For those of you who don't know how this works: In the nomination round we pick members who have something to do with a word or phrase that starts with the letter represented by each Unown. As you can see, we also have awards for the ! and ? Unowns. They're given out for things that end in an exclamation or question mark. The exclamation mark award is usually given out for something surprising, and the question mark award is usually given out for something strange/questionable/unusual/mysterious/etc. For each Unown, put the username of the member you're nominating along with what you're nominating them for.

To use last year's winners as examples, if you are impressed by mr_pikachu's grammar skills, then you would put

G: grammar - mr_pikachu

as your nomination, or if you found it really surprising that Lady Vulpix found our long-lost webmaster Kevin, you might put

!: She found Kevin! - Lady Vulpix

Don't feel obligated to put in a nomination for each Unown award, and you are allowed to go back and edit your nominations before the deadline. If you're still not sure how it all works, check out the threads for last year's Unown Awards in the Main Archive forum.

The next round will be the voting round, where we'll take everyone's nominations and vote for who is the most deserving of each award, followed by any tiebreaker rounds. Lastly, the winners will be announced.

As further examples, here are the winners of last year's Unown Awards.

Are nominations also being private messaged to you, or is Blademaster currently the sole decider of who wins?

5th November 2010, 08:35 AM

5th November 2010, 10:02 AM
After consulting last year's thread and the one for the year before, neither mentioned anything about self-nominations. Self-votes were allowed in the past though...

I'd say it's fine, as long as you only do it once. No nominating yourself for multiple awards.

Knight of Time
5th November 2010, 10:26 AM
Yeah, and besides that, if you nominate yourself for an award, it isn't exactly good sportsmanship in my opinion, I mean, it's very likely you won't get that award if nobody else believes you deserve it.

I'm sorry if it sounds a little hard, but that's my two cents there.

Mew Master

'A'ctive Admin - Lady Vulpix
This is a double A, and it's great to have one!

'B'rief - Telume
Probably his short posts are why he's underestimated.

'C'omics Reader - Fett One
A lover of Spider-Man and other Marvel cartoons.

'D'eism - Kevin
I still insist on giving him this award. Deism is a belief where God has created the Universe but then abandoned it.

'E'very Second Post In Misc - Heald
I may exaggerate a little in this award, but at least he's doing a fine job in moderating Misc in my opinion!

'F'airy Tale - ChobiChibi
Roleplaying forum's adventurer.

'G'anbaru - Roy Karrde
See his avatar. 'Ganbatte' is Japanese for 'Do your best'. And he's also doing it in debates.

'H'ammer And Sickle - RedStarWarrior
Sovient Union Rules!!

'I'nstrumentalist - MToolen
Our music major.

'J'oyful - PancaKe
I always smile when I see her and her smlilies.

'K'eyboard Hero - shazza
Brave to post comments and threads without the fear of getting banned. He used to be banned though.

'L'illy - Ayeun
Her real name, and there's also another word beginning with this letter...

'M'ooniac - Magmar

'N'intendo - Blademaster
Advertises Super Mario Galaxy 2. A game worth it, don't get me wrong!

'O'dyssey - Mikachu Yukitatsu
I ended up in myself here, as I returned from my mental hospital break.

'P'hoenix Bird - firepokemon
Always rises from the flames.

'Q'uantity And Quality - DragoKnight
With mr_pikachu gone, DragoKnight balances between these two. Wants more threads!

'R'eminder - Knight of Time
Always reminding of ASB battles, GGG games and stuff, let's not forget What Was The Last Time You...?

'S'upersonic - DarkestLight
The busy ASB moderator must be faster than his videogame hero!

'T'eaparty - Master Rudy
Barack Obama's cookie tastes like socialism.

'U'ltima - Weasel Overlord
Sounds like Final Fantasy, huh?

'V'irginian - Asilynne
Pretty self-explanatory for this pretty girl.

'W'esternmost - DivineAll
I'm boring and carry on with locations, DivineAll lives in Seattle.

'X'-Ray Vision - abunaidesu
Can see through your posts what kind of person you truly are.

'Y'ummy - Houndoom_Lover
It's sad we don't have this tasteful TPMer talking about food around anymore. Yummy yummy yummy here we go!

'Z'ookeeper - Crazy Elf Boy
For his signature and Safari Zone journeys.

Yu-Gi-Oh'!' - Dark Sage
For his fanfic series.

What Did He Just Say'?' - Charles Legend
For his obscure replies.

This took me 6 days!

Woo, I'm brief!

Actually it's subjective, without being verbose.

I second the neckbeard! And I know Denny >.< We're going to try to be around more ^-^()

Also to Blade: quix·ot·i·cal (-ĭ-kəl)

1. Caught up in the romance of noble deeds and the pursuit of unreachable goals; idealistic without regard to practicality.
2. Capricious; impulsive: "At worst his scruples must have been quixotic, not malicious" (Louis Auchincloss).

It cant be definition number one since we've pretty much proven its not an unreachable goal, but Ill give you definition #2 I can be pretty impulsive lol ;D

Ill have mine up once I think about it a bit, sorry for disappearing for awhile...

'T'eaparty - Master Rudy

Yep.....man is going to have plenty of time for a vacation once his one term is up......

P: Picard - Master Rudy

Aww.....Jeff noticed that I've practiced. I'm touched XD


Anyway I'll be sure to get some of my own nominations up later. It takes time to come up with good ones and frankly some of the good ones tend to usually be taken by the time I'm ready to throw a few down :P

EDIT-In fact I'm going to at least use my self nomination slot right now:
Absent-Master Rudy

Bran and MC aren't the only ones who haven't been around TPM much. An inactive RPG Forum (well an inactive TPM in general actually) as well as real life have kinda put the place on the backburner. Hell as of late if you see me on MSN I'm most likely logged in via my 360 when I'm either watching TNG or playing Red Dead Redemption (major contender for Game of the Year and perhaps Game of the Decade 2010-19)

I'll try to be online a bit more if time allows it. After all my day isn't complete without being on the receiving end of some kind of snarky comment from Blade.....which reminds me. My 360 just hit the one year mark on the manufacture date bro and it's still going strong. Newer 360's are after all designed much better than the garbage Microsoft put out at launch :P

7th November 2010, 10:21 PM
A: Awesome Sauce: Weasel Overlord :D
B: Bro: heald :P
C: Cool: To shazza, who would probably be the 1st TPMer I would pick to chill with IRL.
D: Dedication: Jeff, for all your hard work. :)
E: English (master): Lady_Vulpix, whose English has improved since joining TPM to the point where it is much better than mine. Truly you deserve a shout for that :)
F: Fun: Zak. You seem fun.
G: Genuine: Asilynne.
I: Interesting: Abunaidesu.
K: Knowledgeable: Firepokemon, since it's one good way of putting that you know all there is to know about TPM.
L: Loud: Roy Karrde.
M: Mooninite: Shazza, for your dedication to Mt. Moon.
N: New: Crown34 for being active in your noobness.
P: Partier: Andrew, who always seems to be having a good time.
Q: Quick: redstarwarrior, who always closes shit threads soon as he spots em.
R: Reply: Blademaster, who seems to reply in every thread on TPM. Which is not a bad thing, it means you've got a lot to say.
S: Smart: Katie!
T: Tried: Plantae, for trying to resurge the Werewolf Game.
U: Underappreciated: Mikachu, who's always nice.
?: What the?: Kainashi
!: Sucks at TPM!: frost.

And on another note, holy shit first snowfall of the season just started! Nice!

R: Reply: Blademaster, who seems to reply in every thread on TPM. Which is not a bad thing, it means you've got a lot to say.

.....Oh... Well, I wasn't expecting that... What a nice thing to say Maggy thank you. :)

Also, Asi, I chose the word 'quixotic' because of this (http://www.yourdictionary.com/quixotic) definition:

"extravagantly chivalrous or foolishly idealistic"

Not that being foolishly idealistic is a BAD thing, but it seems to fit you more than anyone else here. Also, it's a fancy word. Usually people pick something like 'quiet' or 'quaint' or some such simple word. I like to be showy.
