Paint.NET Forum Awards Show 2013

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 2013 Paint.NET Forum Awards Show! Where you decided the best of 2013, the worst of 2013, 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 2013 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 2013, 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 29% of the vote is... Visual :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 17% of the vote is... pdnnoob

And, the winner with 50% of the vote is... david.atwell :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: skullbonz and AGJM

The winner with 60% of the vote is... Visual :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 31% of the vote is... Barbieq25

The winner with 38% 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: Pixey (Nanette)

The runner-up with 31% of the vote is... Barbieq25

And, the winner with 54% 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: Kemaru, Pyrochild, barbieq25, and BoltBait (Hey! That's me!)

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

The winner with 27% of the vote is... RFX :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: Welshblue, Ego Eram Reputo, Rick Brewster, null54, RFX, TechnoRobbo, and david.atwell

And, the winner with 21% of the vote is... pdnnoob :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, 2013.

The nominees for this award include: Oceana

The runner-up with 32% of the vote is... Daniels

And, the winner with 44% of the vote is... TechnoRobbo :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

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

The winner with 50% 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: WelshBlue and Rick Brewster

The winner with 47% of the vote is... skullbonz :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: minners71, Madjik, Ash, A Fleeting Glimpse, and Commander Sozo

The runner-up with 21% of the vote is... Jim100361

And, the winner with 36% 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.

Captain N: (The UBB gamer) David.Atwell

The MVP: (The sports guru) Goonfella

Siskel & Ebert: (The movie guru) BoltBait

Rolling Stone: (The music guru) Welshblue

101010: (The computer guru) null54

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: hmmm... honstly, just the two winners...

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

And, the winner with 83% of the vote is... dug :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: Pixey (Nanette), welshblue, Seerose, Doughty, and yellowman

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

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

The GE Award:

This one goes to the author who created the best plugin of 2013.

The runner-up is... um... no one? (This is a strange year!)

And, the winner with 50% of the votes each is... TechnoRobbo :trophy: and Red ochre :trophy:

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 2013.

The nominees for this award include: Drydareelin, Kemaru (for Pyrochild's ambisig), dug, and Oceana

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

The winner with 31% of the vote is... minners71 :trophy:

Paint.NET's Rabbi:

This one goes to the best teacher of 2013. Authors of tutorials newly written this year are eligible.

The nominees for this award include: Yellowman

The runner up with 27% of the vote is... pdnnoob

The winner with 55% 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 DrewDale!”

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

3) “Hey, nitenurse79 has her 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, Visual 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: Yellowman, Dug, Daniels, pdnnoob

The third place spot with 12% of the vote is... barbieq25 :trophy-bronze:

The runner-up with 20% of the votes is... Welshblue :trophy-silver:

*Drum roll, please*

And, the clear winner with 22% of the vote is... HELEN the new 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. Rick Brewster, use a designated driver. Be safe, everyone. See you all next year!

EDIT: Custom titles have now been awarded for all but the "fun" awards. Enjoy! Multiple award winners only get one title of my choosing. If you want the other one, let me know.

Congratulations to the winners and nominee's.

 

A pleasure to share the King/Queen podium with 2 such great ladies, and an honour to hand the crown over to Helen (and the Monet award ... be warned, it needs a lot of dusting ;))

 

Thanks to those who voted for me ... Homer Simpson ?  I'll have you know it's 12 months alcohol free now so the jaundice has gone ... plus 2 stone.  I'm almost a new man.  And my wife wishes it was so 

 

The Rabbi Award ... an honour but nooo way am I having any 'cosmetic' surgery done 'down there' - uh - uh

 

Thanks for the time it must have taken BB, as BarbieQ' says - a great place to be and with the introduction of 4.0 let's all vie for the coveted 'art awards' this year

I have long suspected that TechnoRobbo and Red Ochre are twins. The dual GE award makes me even more suspicious! :lol:

Congratulations to all our winners. You guys are a wonderful group of people and make this forum what it is - a place of excellence.

I'm honored to have been awarded the Proton title for the second year in a row. It's a bit humbling really. Thanks guys.

Thanks to all of you who took the time to vote. An especially big thanks to BoltBait for being our host.
