The 2017 Paint.NET Forum Awards Show!

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 2017 Paint.NET Forum Awards Show! Where you decided the best of 2017, the worst of 2017, 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 2017 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 2017, 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 41% of the vote is... RMSTITANIC :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 27% of the vote is... Ego Eram Reputo

And, the winner with 55% 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: toe_head2001, Pixey, and RMSTITANIC

 

The winner with 43% of the vote is... Antony :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 27% of the vote is... Pixey

The winner with 36% 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: toe_head2001, LionsDragon, and lynxster4

 

The runner-up with 17% of the vote is... Pixey

And, the winner with 50% 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: toe_head2001, AndrewDavid, LionsDragon, RickHum, and Welshblue

 

The runner-up with 20% of the vote is... IRON67

And, the winner with 32% 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 runner-up with 18% of the vote is... toe_head2001

And, the winner with 27% of the vote is... MJW :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 eligible for this award, the user must have joined after January 1, 2017.

 

The nominees for this award include: RMSTITANIC and MadJik?

 

The winner with 67% of the vote is... BlastWave :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: Rick Brewster and Seerose

 

The runner-up with 25% of the vote is... dipstick

The winner with 50% of the vote is... Scooter :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: RMSTITANIC and Welshblue

 

The runner-up with 33% of the vote is... Woodsy

The winner with 50% of the vote is... IRON67 :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: HELEN

 

The runner-up with 36% of the vote is... TechnoRobbo

And, the winner with 55% of the vote is... Red ochre :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) Zagna

The MVP: (The sports guru) Welshblue

Siskel & Ebert: (The movie guru) BoltBait

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: Dug, RickHum, AndrewDavid, and Woodsy

 

The runner-up with 25% of the vote is... Welshblue

And, the winner with 33% of the vote is... MadJik :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: Welshblue, BlastWave, and lynxster4

 

The runner-up with 17% of the vote is... Seerose

The winner with 78% 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 2017.

 

The nominees for this award include: MJW and TrevorOutlaw

 

The runner-up with 38% of the vote is... Pixey

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

 

Paint.NET's Rabbi:

The nominees for this award include: toe_head2001, Pixey, IRON67, and lionsdragon

 

The runner up with 18% of the vote is... Eli

The winner with 45% of the vote is... Welshblue :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, Seerose is showing their art in the Louvre!”

3) “Hey, BoltBait has his own TV show!”

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

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

6) “OMGWTFLOLBBQ, Shochi 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: Woodsy and Rick Brewster

 

The third place spot with 9% of the vote is... Lynxster4 :trophy-bronze:

The runner-up with 14% of the votes is... WelshBlue :trophy-silver:

 

*Drum roll, please*

 

And, the clear winner with 18% of the vote is... Pixey the 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. Rickhum, use a designated driver. Be safe, everyone. See you all next year!

Congratulations to the nominees and the placers.  Jolly well done :D

 

I was totally taken by surprise to have won for Queen 2017, & the Monet, as there are so many talented people on here :star:

 

Thank you so much for your votes.  I did have myself a few tears when I found out - happy tears though - as I'd received some bad news yesterday.  You guys and gals made me feel better right away :)

 

Thank you @BoltBait for hosting this Awards Show each year and to @Rick Brewster for this fabulous software :lol:

Congrats to all the award winners! Thanks to all who nominated me for the Marlborough award. Sorry I couldn't comment sooner but I've been unavoidably detained.

Besides, what do you expect from the runner up of the Pauly Shore award? :P

A few days late to the party but just wanted to say Congratulations to everyone and thanks for the nominations ... Howard Hughes :D ... who wants to be normal.  It's boring.

Pauly Shore ... those who nominated have got something in common with my wife ... 

Sports Guru ... my main involvement with sports these days is shouting at Football Referees and losing money on accumulators (although if Tondela score again tonight it would be a nice lil' earner)

 

Teacher of The Year ... thanks.  The writing of the tuts' is my small way of passing it on.  And a pleasure

 

... and @Pixey, I'm so glad I gave one of the votes to you.  A worthy winner.

 

Thanks BoltBait
