Paint.NET Forum Awards Show 2014

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 2014 Paint.NET Forum Awards Show! Where you decided the best of 2014, the worst of 2014, and everything in between!

:arrow-left: 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 2014 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 2014, you guys know what a forum troll on the Internet is by now.

The nominees for this award include: ugh, too many to list

The runner-up with 25% of the vote is... SAND33P

And, the big winner with 50% of the vote is... Cc4FuzzyHuggles :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 23% of the vote is... BoltBait (Hey! That's me!)

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: TechnoRobbo (figuring that karma must balance at some point), Cc4FuzzyHuggles, Skullbonz, Eli

The winner with 33% of the vote is... Minni :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 20% of the vote is... Pixey

The winner with 33% 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: Seerose, Pixey, Ego Eram Reputo, Cc4FuzzyHuggles

The runner-up with 20% of the vote is... Barbieq25

And, the winner with 53% 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: CcFuzzyHuggles, pyrochild, Skullbonz

The runner-up with 29% of the vote is... Dug

The winner with 43% of the vote is... Minni :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: Midora, pdnnoob, Rick Brewster, barbieq25

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

And, the winner with 31% of the vote is... Ego Eram Reputo :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, 2014.

The nominees for this award include: Cc4FuzzyHuggles, Eli, Pratyrush, Seerose

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

And, the winner with 36% of the vote is... Nai :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: DrewDale, Ego Eram Reputo, Rick Brewster

The runner-up with 20% of the vote is... BoltBait and Skullbonz

The winner with 30% of the vote is... Scooter :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: MJW, Rick Brewster, Kemaru, teh501stsnoipeh

The winner with 40% 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: A Fleeting Glimpse, Minners71, Doughty, Dark Shock, Julio Coolio, Sasha, Oceana

The runner-up with 17% of the vote is... Dug and Yellowman

And, the winner with 50% of the vote is... Welshblue :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) SAND33P

The MVP: (The sports guru) Goonfella

Siskel & Ebert: (The movie guru) BoltBait

Rolling Stone: (The music guru) BoltBait

101010: (The computer guru) TechnoRobbo and Rick Brewster

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: TechnoRobbo, yellowman, Dug, Seerose, Goonfella

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

And, the winner with 29% of the vote is... Red Ochre :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: Nai, Skullbonz, Xhin

The runner-up with 20% of the vote is... HELEN

And, the winner with 60% of the vote is... Pixey :trophy:

The GE Award:

This one goes to the author who created the best plugin of 2014.

The nominees for this award include: The Dwarf Horde

The runner-up with 20% of the vote is... Red ochre

And, the winner with 73% of the votes each is... TechnoRobbo :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 2014.

The nominees for this award include: Kemaru, pdnnoob, Drydareelin, Jerkfight, Pixey, skullbonz, toe_head2001

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

The winner with 27% of the vote is... Nitenurse79 :trophy:

Paint.NET's Rabbi:

This one goes to the best teacher of 2014. Authors of tutorials newly written this year are eligible.

The nominees for this award include: Cc4FuzzyHuggles, Ego Eram Reputo, Ishi, pdnnoob, Nai, Yellowman, BoltBait

The runner up with 15% of the vote is... Pixey and Red Ochre

The winner with 23% of the vote is... TechnoRobbo :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 Pixey and DrewDale!”

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

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

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

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

6) “OMGWTFLOLBBQ, Rick Brewster 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: EgoEramReputo, TechnoRobbo, Drydareelin, Goonfella, Helen, BoltBait, nitenurse79, pdnnoob, Rick Brewster, Yellowman

Imagine my surprise and shock when, not only being able to log onto the forum this morning once again, I find that I’ve won two awards cloud9.gif    

 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart fellow PDN’ers.  I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d ever get a ‘gong’ on this Annual Award Ballot, being amongst such creative and talented people who constantly amaze with their beautiful work, as well as their incredible skill at making plug-ins, which allow us to compose art and, of course, the wonderful software itself.  I’m really dumbfounded and so humbled – thank you all very much :D .

 

Big congratulations also to:  * cc4, EER, Minni, Helen, Nai, Scooter, Skullboz, WB and the winners of the Spool awards.

 

And – a big thank you to BoltBait for his time and effort in running this fun Award each year.

 

Edit: * Ooops - missed Techno, NN & Red - where are my manners (typing too quickly - so sorry) smiley-ashamed001.gif

Thank you for the interesting take on this Forum.  Geeze, I could win for the dumbest error but I made it just yesterday. . . .

 

Congratulations to all the winners and losers as well.  There are actually no losers around here because Paint.net is the best and have the best support system anywhere.  Free software and free support.  That other program is just wishing to be half as good. 

 

➺ Paint.net ROCKS❣

 

Well, I am off to ask another question.

 

May you be blessed in ways you have not yet imagined.

Pat

Custom award titles have been updated. Winners should see their titles just above their pictures (on each post).

I can not update my own. So, another mod will have to update mine from 2013 to 2014.

Thank you so much for voting me Movie Guru. Some of you may know that I also like to submit ideas for poll questions over at imdb.com. I've had 50 poll questions selected and run and my polls have received over 100,000 votes. Here is a list of my poll questions: http://www.imdb.com/user/ur4521991/boards/

Really, Did it happened earlier?

 

Along with pyrochild getting gunned down (for the 5th time). :D

Pyrochild, I didn't knew you were so popular. :D

 

Congratulations to everyone:- Winners, nominees, host, staff members, moderators, tutorial writers, plugin makers and our Rick. :) .

 This forum really is a place with a lot of fun. I like everyone here. I'm happy even to be nominated for a single award.

This year I'm going to start many topics here :lol:  and also, I will be using a lot of PMs with peoples. Thanks everyone for everything.

Thank you to all who voted, it was fun seeing the nominees and winners. :)
Thanks BoltBait for putting on the show, you really should have your own TV show. ;)
Thank you forum Mods and Rick for maintaining the forums and paint.net. <3
Thank you to all plugin makers, I love your efforts and plugins. <3
Last, I'm not sure what to think with the Mimi Award, but if it's because I'm active or I post a lot, then I guess it's not all bad, lol. I'm flattered to have been nominated for more than one category too, so thank you to those who nominated me. :)

Thank you everyone! I hope we all continue to have fun on these forums and I hope we continue to have fun using the great program called, Paint.net! :D:cake:

Congrats to all of the winners! Sorry I didn't get to put in my ballot. I've been very busy lately.

 

Lets make 2015 a great year!

 

On a side-note: I should start making sigs again and go for the Marlboro award. :)
