Paint.NET Forum Awards Show 2010


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 2010 Paint.NET Forum Awards Show! Where you decided the best of 2010, the worst of 2010, 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 2010 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 2010, 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 43% of the vote is... chrisco97

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 33% of the vote is... Ego Eram Reputo

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

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: Numetro, D3T0N4T0R, and Kemaru

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

And, the winner with 38% of the vote is... PsychoHarmonic

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: Possum Roadkill and chrisco97

The runner-up with 22% of the vote is... barbieq25

And, the winner with 56% of the vote is... Sarkut

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: just about everyone

And, the winner with 30% 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 29% of the vote is... pyrochild

And, the winner with 43% of the vote is... Possum Roadkill

Way to go, Possum!

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 22% of the vote is... Rick Brewster

Rick, 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, 2010.

The nominees for this award include: jpnboy, TARAT, and Stone85

The runner-up with 27% of the vote is... chrisco97

And, the winner with 36% of the vote is... Heat Stroke

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: Welshblue and pyrochild

The runner-up with 30% of the vote is... Possum Roadkill

And, the winner with 50% 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: david.atwell, chrisco97, Rubrica, csm725, and B00k W0rm

And, the winner with 29% of the vote is... D3T0N4T0R

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: david.atwell, Crazy Man Dan, DarkShock, and Myrddin

The runner-up with 27% of the vote is... A Fleeting Glimpse

And, the winner with 36% of the vote is... Ash

We miss 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 2010.

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

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

4) “Hello, I’m D3T0N4T0R, and I’m an alcoholic.”

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

6) “OMGWTFLOLBBQ, csm725 just got bant good!”

(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:

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!

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

Again? It's cute that people think the cops can ever stop me. :lol:

Congratulations to all winners and nominees, and thanks to everyone who voted for Liquify (and Trail?!). I really was expecting that to be closer. PSFilterPDN is sick.

Music Recommendation of the Week:

Check out the new remix album by HEALTH, ::DISCO2. nosajthing and others on this one, though I still prefer the first one, Pictureplanes Remix of Lost Time is just amazing.

Once again Bolt Bait you have done a fine job on hosting the annual awards. I'd like to congratulate everyone both winners and runner ups. There was so much fine artwork and so many wonderful tuts and plugins it was a banner year in my opinion for the value of the fine program Rick have given us all to play with.

one thing I was totally surprised to receive votes at all. I've been so absent from the forum for much of the year, due to health problems in the family. For these votes I truly thank you all and hopefully will get more time this year to complete some of the other items on my must try list.

Oh yes Welshy I just knew you would get King of Paint.net, and I can't think of a more deserving person for that award!

It is nice to see all our PDN fanatics group doing so well and really stepping up to the plate artwise.

keep on keeping on everyone.

My wish for 2011 awards..... well I'm keeping fingers crossed that there are so many great masterpieces to vote for that its almost impossible to vote. so for those starting out try the tuts, show your art and be nice in your critiques.

ciao OMA
