    Cool The PokéMasters 2019 Unown Awards

    I must be crazy to post this, but I think we all deserve it. We've worked hard to save TPM and now we're starting to see the fruits of our labor. So what better way to celebrate the community that's continually making this possible than with an award ceremony?

    Hopefully, you'll remember how this works, but just in case here's a quick refresher.

    1. We post nominations for every Unown in existence. The nominations phase will last for two three weeks, until the first 8th of December.
    2. We vote! The voting phase will also last for two weeks, until the 15th 22nd of December. You can PM me your votes. You choose up to two candidates for each category (in which case they get half a vote each).
    3. We break ties, if applicable. The tiebreaker face will last a week, until the 22nd 29th of December, provided there are ties to break.
    4. If there are still any ties left after this, the 'sudden death' face starts, allowing the first voter to choose the winner.

    One this is over, the Awards Ceremony will take place, and then all winners can proudly wear their Unowns on their signatures or display them however they see fit.

    So... start posting your nominations! And if you would like to help design/draw the trophies or write speeches, please let me know!

    It's been a few years since we last had the Unown Awards, hasn't it? I'm glad to see they're making a return this year.

    Alright, I've got some nominations I want to post here, so without further ado, here they are (I'm only posting some for certain letters).

    D:

    Decade- Mt. Moon, for having been here for 10 years now (can an award go to an individual forum? I'm curious).
    Discord- Lady Vulpix/Gabi, for giving us a home on Discord. While it could possibly use a few more channels in the future, I still wish to say a big thank you, Gabi!

    F:

    Fighters- to the TPM staff for doing their part in helping during the spambot invasion before we got the much needed help from Kevin. I'm so glad you guys were there to keep some of the spambot posts away from TPM before Kevin saved us.
    Finny-boy- who else but Mikachu Yukitatsu, our resident Finn. This one was inspired by the nickname Blademaster gave me (Kotty-boy), which gives me an occasional chuckle. This is one I couldn't resist making a nomination for.

    L:

    Letter- shazza, for writing the letter to Kevin's wife to get his attention when we really needed it, and to everyone who gave shazza their permission to have their username or real name at the bottom of the letter.

    N:

    No More Spambots- Kevin, for eradicating all the spambots and creating the Spam-O-Matic. Thank you so much, Kevin!
    Nuzlocke- DragoKnight, for his Nuzlocke topic in RBY. 'nuff said here.

    ?:

    Where are you?- mr_pikachu and Shadow Wolf; with three of us Pokemon Hangman workers active these days (me, Gabi, and Christen), it would be sooo amazing if one or both of the other two guys in our worker quintet were active again, not to mention that in the event that I get my new Hangman idea off the ground, it would be awesome to have them both (as well as Gabi and Christen) as fellow workers.

    This is all I can come up with for now, though.

    Edit: I got in a couple more nominations.

    S:

    Shazza - Shazza deserves to have an award named after him for the role he played in saving the site.

    OK, we're still far away from filling the nominations list, so let's push everything forward a week (or back, depending on your perspective, let's just do everything a week later). People, please, post more nominations and let others know about this if they haven't seen it yet. I'll post my own nominations if someone else posts theirs.

    I have to admit I misread your starter post so I didn't hurry with the nominations. However, as we don't have so many active users at the moment, I ask if it's OK to nominate one person to more than one award? I'm not sure if I'll do so, though, I might even nominate users that haven't posted in a while...

    Yes, of course you can nominate one person for more than one award... And anyone who has posted or contributed to the community in some way during 2019 is eligible for an award.

    Oh, I was talking about TPMers who haven't posted for some time because this is the end of the decade. First of all, this is the final Unown Awards of 2010-2019, second of all, we haven't done this for years, so that would give much more options. I mean I won an Unown Award in 2009, too, although there really was a possibility that I would be gone for good. But still, giving it a second thought, perhaps it wouldn't make sense to give awards to accounts that don't seem to come back.

    S
    Shazza - Shazza deserves to have an award named after him for the role he played in saving the site.

    Note that Unowns J, Y and Z are not finding a new home this time... unless someone can post a last-minute nomination today! If anyone post a nomination for J, Y or Z within the next 24 hours, it will count as an automatic win! As long as they're not nominating themselves, of course.

    [Edit: no one posted, so those three Unowns will have to wait until next time to find a home.]

    I have made a sample award. It's simple, but sometimes a simple design can be good.

    It is also my first time designing the awards, so I hope it's good enough.

    If any of the winners wants one, please let me know and I will make one for you.
