Welcome to the 2009 Paint.NET Forum Awards Show! Where you decided the best of 2009, the worst of 2009, and everything in between!

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 2009 on the Paint.NET forum. As I'm sure you're aware, a forum troll is someone who posts a lot, and whose posts don't always have an overflow of useful content. Not to say that they never have relevant posts, but -- ah hell, it's 2009, 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 19% of the vote is... TheOnlyChad

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: all of the mods!

The runner-up with 24% of the vote is... Rick Brewster

And, the winner with 33% of the vote is... Ego Eram Reputo

Keep up the great work!

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: Mendo, Genius, FrontCannon, and bluecasters

The runner-up with 28% of the vote is... glue_man

And, the winner with 33% of the vote is... Cellus

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: flip, CommandoSozo, Carazon, CrazyManDan, Yellowman, david.atwell, Ego Eram Reputo, and barbieq25

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

And, the winner with 20% of the vote is... oma

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

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: just about everyone

The runner up with 10% of the vote is... HELEN

And, the winner with 50% of the vote is... oma

Wow! I think I just got deja vu!

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: lots of people

The runner-up with 13% of the vote is... Rubrica

And, the winner with 25% of the vote is... pyrochild

Way to go, pyro!

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: too many to list, proof that we have a great board!

And, the winner with 17% of the vote is... david.atwell

David, 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, 2009.

The nominees for this award include: LumièreDuSoleil, FrontCannon, Yellowman, A Fleeting Glimpse, sokagirl, and barbieq25

The runner-up with 16% of the vote is... flip

And, the winner with 32% of the vote is... TheOnlyChad

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: Aislin, 007 Nab, Juraiko1324, Goonfella, pyrochild, barbieq25, TopHATslash, and Lance McKnight

The runner-up with 16% of the vote is... welshblue

And, the winner with 37% of the vote is... BoltBait

Woah! That's me! :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: Simon Brown, Lance McKnight, Briamoth, 007 Nab, and FrontCannon

The runner-up with 18% of the vote is... flip

And, the winner with 29% of the vote is... vista?

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: Yata, Survulus, pride, nemo, -expiration-, janettesue, and Tophatslash

The runner-up with 19% of the vote is... code_ember

And, the winner with 25% of the vote is... Ash

We miss you!

The Spool Awards:

1) Captain N: (The UBB gamer) DarkShock

2) The MVP: (The sports guru) LFC4EVER

3) Siskel & Ebert: (The movie guru) BoltBait

4) Rolling Stone: (The music guru) usedHONDA

5) 101010: (The computer guru) Rick Brewster Let's see... the guy who wrote Paint.NET... wins! :D

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: Welshblue, HELEN, Sokagirl, MadJik, CommanderSozo, Yellowman, FrontCannon, and Possum Roadkill

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

Well deserved recognition!

The runner-up with 18% of the vote is... BoltBait for Selection Tools

And, the winner with 29% of the vote is... APShredder for Blend Modes+

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

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 2009.

The nominees for this award include: yy10, Zwicky, Ash, CommanderSozo, David.Atwell, Yellowman, 007Nab, LumièreDuSoleil, flip, TheOnlyChad, and Lance McKnight

The runner-up with 16% of the vote is... Sharp

And, the winner with 21% of the vote is... DarkShock

Now, a few things thrown in just for fun!

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

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

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

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

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

6) “OMGWTFLOLBBQ, Genius just got bant good!”

Just so you know, #6 had a 4 way tie for second between Cellus, glue_man, jerry533482, and Simon Brown. Um... Simon?

(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 just about everyone!

You should get the Win7 theme for XP. Then get the rest of Win7. Then uninstall XP. Then it'll really look nice. ~ David Atwell

Radiance award? Clearly, you guys are out of your minds. :-)

Thanks all who voted for me. I'd like to thank...um...

Hey, David, I'm really happy for you, and Im'ma let you finish, but Ash is one of the most brilliant members of all time! OF ALL TIME!

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Okay...here's what I find funny, I got nominated for Homer Simpson and Pauly Shore awards...how odd is that? On one hand, some think I'm funny, and on another hand, some think I'm not. Does that make me bipolar or what? What shocks me the most was the nomination for the Marlboro Award...that's something I didn't see coming...and it goes to show you don't need to slap on C4D renders to have an impressive sig.

And I called the most runner ups? Weird.

Officially retired from this forum. Have a nice day.

I remember the same happening to pyrochild in the 2007 awards, except that he won one.
