Paint.NET Forum Awards Show 2011


BoltBait

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 2011 Paint.NET Forum Awards Show! Where you decided the best of 2011, the worst of 2011, 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 2011 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 2011, 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 38% of the vote is... nitenurse79

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... pyrochild

And, the winner with 47% 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: brad.pike, rubrtoe, TFPrime, and jim100361

The winner with 35% of the vote is... AhmedElyamani

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 winner with 22% of the vote is... welshblue

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 47% of the vote is... barbieq25

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: lots of people

The winner with 29% 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

And, the winner with 24% 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, 2011.

The nominees for this award include: ninjamandan21, Jaxon, delpart, moninca, nitenurse79, N00BZ, and Minners71

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

And, the winner with 24% of the vote is... Red Ochre

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: minners71, Possum Roadkill, Welshblue, Pyrochild, and dug

The winner with 33% 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: NinjaManDan21 and yellowman

The winner with 50% of the vote is... david.atwell

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: Axle, ash, flip, A Fleeting Glimpse, and CrazyManDan

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

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

We miss you!

The Spool Awards:

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

1) Captain N: (The UBB gamer) Sozo

2) The MVP: (The sports guru) Kemaru

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

4) Rolling Stone: (The music guru) FrontCannon

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: agjm, barbieq, Goonfella, jim100361, matt0815, and barbieq25

The runner-up with 23% of the vote is... Welshblue

And, the winner with 31% of the vote is... dug

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: oma, HELEN, Goonfella, yellowman, Possum Roadkill, and Aislin

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

And, the winner with 25% of the vote is... barbieq25

The GE Award:

This one goes to the author who created the best plugin of 2011.

The runner-up with 22% of the vote is... pyrochild for Smudge

And, the winner with 36% of the vote is... Red ochre for his plugin pack

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 2011.

The nominees for this award include: NinjaManDan21, HELEN, Madjik, Sfifer, Mayor Mc_Steeze, and toxicdj

The winner with 33% of the vote is... minners71

Now, a few things thrown in just for fun!

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

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

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

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

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

6) “OMGWTFLOLBBQ, D3T0N4T0R 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:

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!

We have a tie for 3rd place:

The third place spot with 8% of the vote is... Goonfella

The third place spot with 8% of the vote is... Yellowman

We also have a tie for the runner-up spot:

The runner-up with 13% of the votes is... barbieq25

The runner-up with 13% of the votes is... welshblue

And, the clear winner with 15% of the vote is... HELEN the new Queen of Paint.NET

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!"

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

Finally I would like to thank my pets!

Nifty awards and well written to be fun to read on top of all that. *(Yes, I dislike award shows, but since I know most of these people now, I think I understand the award show thing a little more now ... doesn't mean I'm watching the Oscars though ... )

Congrats to everyone. Wish I'd spent a little more time actively here in my brief stint, but I wanted to thank everyone for their efforts since I missed the voting thread and all that rot.

With sincere gratitude to all and warmest wishes for a great 2012 ...

WOW! - I'm flabbergasted and very very flattered. Thank you all very much.

Pyrochild - 'smudge' is brilliant and really adds to PDN's powerful tools,

your coding skill is way beyond mine.

Thank you to Boltbait for hosting the awards and maintaining 'codelab'

- without which I couldn't write plugins at all!

Thank you to the often over-looked file type plugin authors too.

Congratulations to all the winners and nominees and thanks to all for taking the time to vote.

Well done Helen.

Ahmed - they're only jealous!

Nitenurse - the prettiest troll I've ever seen! - thanks for your posts and keeping the hospitals going when the doctors have gone home!

I hope you all have a happy 2012 - you're a pretty good bunch really! :D

Thanx to everyone who voted for me! I'm very surprised and absolutely delighted. Even more so; because of work commitments; I have really only been able to participate in forums "part time". I'm very happy to see that everyone that I voted for got something also. A very big thankx again! :)

Have to have a little laugh everytime I see NN79's Avatar with the word troll underneath, trolls never looked like that in the books, if they did I would of gone under the bridge. ;)

I have a confession to make I never voted and I feel bad, in my defense I had filled in the voting form ( took me ages and couldn't think of anyone for some of the awards ) but accidently closed notepad before saving it :( plus since Christmas Eve until yesterday I have been struggling with bad toothache which turned out to be an abscess and have been walking around in a drugged up haze.

Next year I will be the first to hand in my votes.
