Paint.NET Forum Awards Show 2012


BoltBait

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 2012 Paint.NET Forum Awards Show! Where you decided the best of 2012, the worst of 2012, 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 2012 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 2012, 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 30% of the vote is... OddLlama :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: all of the mods!

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

And, the winner with 46% of the vote is... Ego Eram Reputo :trophy:

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: badpenny, pdnnoob, OddLlama, and AGJM

The winner with 33% of the vote is... jim100361 :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 winner with 31% of the vote is... Ego Eram Raputo :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: just about everyone

And, the winner with 60% of the vote is... HELEN :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: lots of people

The winner with 33% of the vote is... Kemaru :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: too many to list

And, the winner with 21% of the vote is... welshblue :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, 2012.

The nominees for this award include: DrewDale and Xzerizon

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

And, the winner with 46% of the vote is... sashwilko :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: nitenurse79, barbieq25, Pyrochild, and BoltBait (Hey! That's me!)

The winner with 33% of the vote is... welshblue :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: yellowman, Renee27, Rick Brewster, and Jim100361

The winner with 27% of the vote is... AGJM :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: Sarkut, Madjik, and Delpart

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

And, the winner with 30% of the vote is... oma :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.

1) Captain N: (The UBB gamer) DarkShock

2) The MVP: (The sports guru) Goonfella

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

4) Rolling Stone: (The music guru) welshblue

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: doughty, skullbonz, and yellowman

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

And, the winner with 54% of the vote is... dug :trophy:

Well deserved recognition!

And, the winner with 33% of the vote is... welshblue :trophy:

The GE Award:

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 2012.

The nominees for this award include: Minners71, Kap, Yellowman, and sashwilko

The winner with 43% of the vote is... nitenurse79 :trophy:

This one goes to the best teacher of 2012. Authors of tutorials newly written this year are eligable.

The nominees for this award include: Ella, Yellowman, and davidf

The runner up with 31% of the vote is... Ego Eram Reputo

The winner with 38% of the vote is... pdnnoob :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 nitenurse79!”

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

3) “Hey, Yellowman 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 Crazy Man Dan from his murderous rampage.”

6) “OMGWTFLOLBBQ, Yellowman 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!"

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

Helen pipped me to the post - again! I totally agree with you Helen. Good to see that quite a few of my nominees won an award. Well done all & many thanks BB for hosting. :D

Thank you so much for the nomination and votes for the win as Rookie of the year :) I am deeply touched to think that I have made an impact on here. :)

 

Congratulations to all the winners :trophy: and a big thanks to BoltBait for taking time to host the show.
The biggest thanks has to go to all the plugin authors, tutorial writers and of course to Rick Brewster for developing the program to start with :)

 

I just hope Welshblue has a big enough suitcase to take his awards home in :D

Real Estate + Proton winner. Translation: I'm everywhere, but friendly :lol:

Thanks to my friend BoltBait for putting the awards together for another year. I'd also like to thank....

Congratulations to everyone.  

I must admit to being shocked and also very humbled at my haul.  

It's a shame I can't refuse to accept some of them so the awards are spread around to some very worthy people who were runners up but who deserve them (not wanting to sound ungrateful ...)

 

Homer Simpson Award ?  I'm the most miserable person here ...

 

Many thanks to everyone ... plus big thanks to BoltBait who takes the time ... and thanks to those who make PDN so great.  It's got to be special to have kept my attention for nearly 5 years

Congratulations to all the winners & nominees.
Thanks to BoltBait, the voters and Rick and the other admins too.
Well done to Pyrochild who should have won the GE award for 'Liquify' last year!
...and I can pass on the 'rookie' title to Sasha!

Well done also to nitenurse for 'wearing' the Troll label all last year, I hope oddllama will take the Mimi Bobeck award in good humour this year.

Personally I think the WEoaMP award should be dropped - it causes too much grief. Sadly we haven't heard much from last year's winner, Ahmed. I do hope that when Jim cools down he will not be too offended, but I can understand his feelings. I think many of us look forward to his photo manips and he certainly has more patience answering users questions than I do!

Congrats to all the winners!

A well deserved award to pyro...liquify last year and Grid Warp this year. He's got to hit the mark some time or another!

Thank you all for a great year. Now onwards towards making the new one even better!

Thank you all so much.  I wouldn't be here without you all.  (If you are mad at me now, you read this in the wrong tone.)

I guess it's hard to convey a sarcastic tone over the internet - and with me, sometimes a well-intended joke can sound like an angry one.  bloody potato.  

I promise I'm funny in real life.  I just can't work it with text.  Text always gets read in the wrong tone, so then I just sound pitiful and annoying.  And it happens more often because sometimes I do sound pitiful and annoying, when I'm not trying to be funny.  


I'm trying to be lighthearted right now, if you didn't notice...  I am awful with text, as said before.  

The hardest part of ending is starting again.

Well done to Pyrochild who should have won the GE award for 'Liquify' last year!

 

He won the 2010 award for Liquify and Trails, much to my dissapointment.

 

This is also the first time since the 2009 awards that Pyro did not get the Gunned down award, I guess after 3 years in a row he learned not to mess with the cops. :D

And you're also 14 - so honestly, don't worry. I'm 14 myself, and also painfully unfunny, but do I care? Nope, because there's a whole lifetime to learn comedy in. (That doesn't stop me from being a misanthrope and pessimist, but that's another matter.)

 

Anyway, congratulations to everybody who's won an award! I had neither the time nor the presence of mind to vote this year, sadly, but it's lovely to see that you all continue to be a cohesive and friendly community.
