The 2016 Paint.NET Forum Awards Show!

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 2016 Paint.NET Forum Awards Show! Where you decided the best of 2016, the worst of 2016, and everything in between!

 

:arrow-left: Hi, I'm your host, BoltBait.

 

OK, let's dive right in to the first award for the evening...

 

The Mimi Bobeck Award:

 

This one's for the biggest forum troll of 2016 on the Paint.NET forum. As I'm sure you're aware, a forum troll is someone who posts a lot, whose posts don't always have an overflow of useful content, and who's posts are typically contrarian in nature. Not to say that they never have relevant posts, but -- ah hell, it's 2016, you guys know what a forum troll on the Internet is by now.

 

The nominees for this award include: ugh, too many to list

 

And, the big winner with 67% of the vote is... Maximilian :trophy:

 

Congratulations (I think?) :D

 

Now, one for the mods of this wonderful board.

 

The Real Estate Award:

 

This one's for the mod who tends to close posts the most – they are always there, just waiting for someone to break the rules or post something useless. Decide that you're gonna make a post wrong forum? BAM! This guy moves it before you even get a reply. Some n00b spamming the forums with Viagra ads? BAM! Bant! Not only does this guy close posts, but he wields the banhammer in a way which would make Thor proud.

 

The nominees for this award include, surprisingly enough: most of the mods!

 

The runner-up with 36% of the vote is... Ego Eram Reputo

And, the winner with 45% of the vote is... BoltBait :trophy: (Hey! That's me!)

 

Keep up the great work! (Um... I will!)

 

Now, back to an award you probably don't want to win.

 

The "Wrong End of A Massive Pwnage" Award:

 

You have seen it before… a member posts their unsupported opinion as fact and you just watch and wait for an intelligent member to come in and fry them. This award is, as the title suggests, for the member who has been on the wrong end of a massive pwnage, or has one coming their way sooner than later.

 

The nominees for this award include: IRON67, toe_head2001, and RetiredSlacker

 

The runners-up with 14% of the vote each is... RacerX and Dipstick

And, the winner with 29% of the vote is... Eli :trophy:

 

Congrats! And, be on the lookout for that massive pwnage! :D

 

Next up, an award that no one would be embarrassed to win.

 

The Proton Award:

 

This one is for the member who, overall, has the most positive input to the Paint.NET forum. Whether it's through modship, Paint.NET help, organizing UBB games, valuable input in the suggestions threads, etc; this member is always there to give something back to the community.

 

The nominees for this award include: too many to list (which is a testament to how great our board is)

 

The runner-up with 20% of the vote is... Eli

The winner with 27% of the vote is... Ego Eram Reputo :trophy:

 

Now for an award where just about everyone came in second.

 

The Big Bird Award:

 

This one is for the friendliest soul on the boards. Thoughts toward the vernacular aside, the winner of The Big Bird Award is someone who's always warm, friendly and fuzzy to the other members.

 

The nominees for this award include: Maximilian, lynxster4, and Ego Eram Reputo

 

The runner-up with 31% of the vote is... Pixey

And, the winner with 38% of the vote is... Seerose :trophy:

 

Wow! You look great in yellow!

 

Next, we have an award that everyone would win, if only we knew you better.

 

The Howard Hughes Award:

 

This one goes out to the most eccentric member of the boards. Whether it's stem cell research, abortion, or what they had for lunch yesterday; this member always seems to be on the other side of a debate. Of course, this award doesn't go to just any argumentative soul, this one's for someone who does it well.

 

The nominees for this award include: Scooter, Iron67, toe_head2001, Shochi, Ego Eram Reputo, MJW, and Skullbonz

 

The winner with 22% of the vote is... Dipstick :trophy:

 

Way to go!

 

The Radiance Award:

 

This award goes out to the most brilliant Paint.NET forumer. This person always has something to say, and sure enough, they're usually right. They know everything about some things, and seemingly something about everything. When someone struck you as a smart cookie, this is where you acknowledged that.

 

The nominees for this award include: BoltBait, Ego Eram Reputo, Eli, MJW, and Pixey

 

The winner with 23% of the vote is... Red ochre :trophy:

 

Keep on shining!

 

Rookie of the Year Award:

 

This award goes out to the new member who made the biggest impact on the community. To be eligable for this award, the user must have joined after January 1, 2016.

 

The nominees for this award include: Schochi, Nombot, and Rickhum

 

The runner-up with 21% of the vote is... LionsDragon

And, the winner with 50% of the vote is... Woodsy :trophy:

 

Now, there's an award you can't win twice in a row!

 

The Homer Simpson Award:

 

This award goes out to the funniest forum member. Whether it be wit, shock value, clever writing, or some other form of humor which I'm invariably forgetting, this member is always on top of it.

 

The nominees for this award include: LionsDragon, Scooter, dipstick, and Rickhum

 

The runner-up with 21% of the vote is... Ego Eram Reputo

The winner with 33% of the vote is... BoltBait :trophy:

 

You all crack me up! :D

 

Now, for the award that no one wants to win (or do they?)

 

The Pauly Shore Award:

 

This one goes to the unfunniest member. Maybe their wit isn't witty, or their shock value is too much. Whatever the case, here's your chance to recognize someone who specifically doesn't make you laugh. Oh, sure, they try... but always seem to come up short.

 

The nominees for this award include: Midora and MJW

 

The runner-up with 20% of the vote is... Shochi

The winner with 40% of the vote is... Dipstick :trophy:

 

Better try more loller cats, guys!

 

The Hit & Miss Award:

 

This one's for the member who we miss -- for whatever reason (work, real life, bannination, death by meteor, etc.) they've left the discussion, and the Paint.NET forum members want them back.

 

The nominees for this award include: Yellowman, Cc4FuzzyHuggles, and welshblue

 

The runner-up with 15% of the vote is... Helen

And, the winner with 46% of the vote is... Techno Robbo :trophy:

 

We miss you! Come back!

 

The Spool Awards:

 

This category recognizes members who are big names in certain threads or certain types of threads for their knowledge or help.

 

Captain N: (The UBB gamer) david.atwell

The MVP: (The sports guru) SiBorg

Siskel & Ebert: (The movie guru) Zagna

Rolling Stone: (The music guru) xod

101010: (The computer guru) Rick Brewster

 

Congrats to all!

 

Next, on to the awards for Paint.NET prowess!

 

The Picasso Award:

 

This one goes to the member who consistently creates the weirdest art (in a good way) using Paint.NET.

 

The nominees for this award include: Red ochre, Woodsy, Eli, and Seerose

 

The runner-up with 27% of the vote is... Shochi

And, the winner with 36% of the vote is... Rickhum :trophy:

 

Well deserved recognition!

 

The Monet Award:

 

This one goes to the member who consistently creates the most beautiful art using Paint.NET.

 

The nominees for this award include: Red ochre, Pastorross, Oma, and Lynxster4

 

The runners-up with 15% of the vote is... Seerose/Woodsy

And, the winner with 38% of the vote is... Pixey :trophy:

 

The GE Award:

 

This one goes to the author who created the best plugin of 2016.

 

The nominees for this award include: AnthonyScoffler, Lynxster, Red ochre, Remake, BoltBait, and Techno Robbo

 

The winners with 29% of the votes each is... MJW :trophy: and toe_head2001 :trophy:

 

I think we're *all* the winners of this award, don't you?

 

The Marilyn Monroe Award:

 

This award is for the best shape of 2016.

 

The nominees for this award include: um... just the two winners...

 

The runner-up with 14% of the vote is... toe_head2001

And, the winner with 86% of the vote is... Lynxster4 :trophy:

 

The Marlboro Award:

 

Ever see one of those sigs and thought "Wow, that really makes me think!", or "Gee, that's awesome!"? Well, here's the category where you get the chance to recognize the member with that sig. This award is for the best signature of 2016.

 

The nominees for this award include: Pastorross, doughty, Maximillian, and Nitenurse79

 

The runner-up with 27% of the vote is... Woodsy

The winner with 36% of the vote is... Pixey :trophy:

 

Paint.NET's Rabbi:

 

This one goes to the best teacher of 2016. Authors of tutorials newly written this year are eligible.

 

The nominees for this award include: MJW, Ego Eram Reputo, lynxster4, and Remake

 

The runner up with 23% of the vote is... Pixey

The winner with 38% of the vote is... Eli :trophy:

 

I think we can all learn from you!

 

Now, a few things thrown in just for fun!

 

1) “And your newest mod for the Paint.NET forum is toe_head2001!”

2) “Wow, look, Pastorross is showing their art in the Louvre!”

3) “Hey, Shochi has his own TV show!”

4) “Hello, I’m Retiredslacker, and I’m an alcoholic.”

5) “In local news, police have finally gunned down CRayChosen1 from his murderous rampage.”

6) “OMGWTFLOLBBQ, Rick Brewster just got bant good!”  I wonder what his offense was?!

 

(My keyboard is on fire now... can't feel my fingers...)

 

And, finally, the award you’ve all been waiting for...

 

The Kings/Queens of Paint.NET:

 

This award is plainly & simply the popularity contest you know you all want. You select 4 of this year's most popular forum members -- be they friendly, smart, interesting, funny, some of the above, none of the above, or what -- this award is for your favorite posters. As one voter put it, "I'll let you decide who are the kings and who are the queens!"

 

The nominees for this award include: BoltBait, Helen, and Woodsy

 

The third place spot with 9% of the vote is... Eli :trophy-bronze:

The runner-up with 15% of the votes is... Red ochre :trophy-silver:

 

*Drum roll, please*

 

And, the clear winner with 17% of the vote is... Pixey the new Queen of Paint.NET! :trophy:

 

Well done, one and all! :D

 

That about wraps it up for this year. I'd like to thank each and every one who turned in a ballot. You guys rock!

 

And, to all the winners, I raise my glass, "cheers!" :wine:

 

Good night. CRayChosen1, use a designated driver. Be safe, everyone. See you all next year!

Good grief, I got nominated for the 'Wrong End of A Massive Pwnage' & 'Howard Hughes' awards.  :noes:  At least I didn't win those.  :lol:

 

Congrats to Woodsy & Pixie for winning (what I consider) the two big awards: 'Rookie of the Year', and 'Queen of paint.net'.  Well deserved.

Not sure if I should be proud of being deemed a troll. I figure it's one of those titles you can't shake off that easily, and I didn't even realize I was trolling the forum. I thought I was mostly being friendly, but I guess I have to review my position. Anyway, thanks to voters and congrats to winners.

Thanks Toe_head, Seerose , and to all who voted for me and in so many categories! Getting the Rookie of the year award was totally unexpected but very much appreciated! I've learned so much since I became a member!

Pixie, I should be thanking you for letting me participate in one of your projects.

Congratulations to all the other award winners!

Thanks to Boltbait for all his time and effort!

And a special thanks to Rick!

Fabulous award show again this year BoltBait. You are the hero of these awards.

 

I'm deeply honored to again be awarded the Proton title. To be held in high regard by the forum users is very cool. I'm not tearing up. Honest. I think I have some sawdust from Woodsy's sig in my eye....

 

To all my co-recipients: you are excellent people. I'm glad to be counted among your number. Congratulations all!

Congratulations to everyone, unfortunately I've been away from all things internet wise but if I had voted I'd have got a 100% success rate. :P

 

Sports Guru - I love the irony as I'm recovering from a leg amputation due to complications from the before mentioned RTC and my arm isn't much cop either :lol:

Brilliant.  Totally made my day.  Not sure I've mentioned anything sports related here but thanks to those who think I'm a good sport

I'm so sorry to hear this.  You were in a car accident if I recall last year?  I wish you well and hope you can get back to as normal a life asap.  My brother in law had to have a leg amputated after a nasty motor bike crash a few years ago.  After a long year of pain, he finally improved and now, with a prosthetic, is back to his work as a dentist.  I hope that you may have the same result coming your way soon.  Take care.

Thanks Pixey.  Love the sig - worthy of a worthy Queen.  You show the real porpoise of Paint.NET in the right hands. (OK I'll leave quietly)

 

It is what it is with my injuries.  Worse things happening to other people out there.  

Positives.  A shoe will last years, I can get a really cool cyborg tattoo on the stump when it's healed, the other driver may not have lost his licence because of the hardship it would cause him; but my solicitor will definitely take his shirt - plus I can finally get back into Paint.NET as I recuperate.  No point crying over incinerated limbs :weather-cloudy:

 

Another positive - the painkillers.  Woah the quack wasn't joking when he said people rob their grandmothers for the same feeling B)

That is bad news - I hope all goes as well as it can with your recuperation and re-adjustment.
