Welcome to the 2007 Paint.NET Forum Awards Show! Where you decided the best of 2007, the worst of 2007, and everything in between!

I'm your host, BoltBait.

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 2007 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 2007, you guys know what a forum troll on the Internet is by now.

The nominees for this award include: Paint_Boy, aafuss, david.atwell, verndewd, Pooky, Andrew D, DarkShock91

Sharing the runner-up spot with 14% of the vote each are... Panhead & jerkfight

And, the winner with 22% of the vote is... Bugster

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: Ash, Crazy Man Dan

The runner-up with 35% of the vote is... BoltBait

And, the clear winner with 59% of the vote is... Rick Brewster

Where do you find the time?!

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.

With a surprising amount of self-voting, the nominees for this award include: ncfan51, Markz_clone, david.atwell, Micheal J. Hardy, aafuss, PrettyDarnNeat, Yata, Bugster

The runner-up with 15% of the vote is... verndewd

And, the winner with 23% of the vote is... Andrew D

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: Wither, oma, Crazy Man Dan, pyrochild, Myrddin, Rubrica, ash

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

And, the winner with 25% of the vote is... david.atwell

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 17% of the vote is... oma

Keep sharing those hugs, oma!

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: MadJik, Rick Brewster, Andrew D, Yata, Rubrica, Pyjo, Bobofthedead, darkshock91, usedHONDA, TheVoid

The runner-up with 13% of the vote is... Crazy Man Dan

And, the winner with 20% of the vote is... pyrochild

Way to go, pyrochild!

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: david.atwell, Helio, Madjik

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

And, the winner with 36% of the vote is... Crazy Man Dan

Shine on you crazy diamond!

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: Crazy Man Dan, Wither, Frojo, david.atwell, Bugster, Myrddin, Bob, mattblacklamb

The runner-up with 13% of the vote is... Rick Brewster

And, the winners with 20% of the vote each are... BoltBait & pyrochild

Woah! That's me! :D

Now, for the award that no one wants to win.

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: Verndewd, topHATslash, david.atwell, usedHONDA, Bugster, Rick Brewster

Sharing the runner-up spot with 17% of the vote each are... Rubrica & pyrochild

And, the winner with 25% of the vote is... Andrew D

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: Trickman, Yata (he left?), Tom Jackson, verndewd, Vlad Vampire, user24

And, the winners with 20% of the vote each are... jake2k & aatwo

We miss you guys!

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) david.atwell (38%) Keep running those Hurt/Heal games!

2) The MVP: (The sports guru) pyrochild (100%) I guess we don't talk sports on this board. We had one vote... But, well played!

3) Siskel & Ebert: (The movie guru) Bugster (50%) Also a small vote.

4) Rolling Stone: (The music guru) MattBlackLamb (42%) Despite the fact that jake2k is in a band, MBL crushed him!

5) 101010: (The computer guru) Rick Brewster (38%) 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: pyrochild, Ash, cjmcguiness, aatwo, pyjo, jpope

And, the winners with 25% of the vote each are... MadJik & oma

Both well deserved recognitions!

And, the winner with 40% of the vote is... pyrochild

You keep trying, MKT. I'm sure you'll get it one day! Meanwhile... Curves+ FTW!

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 2007.

The nominees for this award include: Wither, Ash, theVoid, david.atwell, BuzzKill, jerkfight, Stephan

The runner-up with 20% of the vote is... barkbark00

And, the winner with 27% of the vote is... Helio

Now, a few things thrown in just for fun!

1) “And your newest mod for the Paint.NET forum is david.atwell!” (38%)

2) “Wow, look, Ash is showing their art in the Louvre!” (38%)

3) “Hey, Rick Brewster has his own TV show!” (21%)

4) “Hello, I’m Rick Brewster, and I’m an alcoholic.” (15%)

5) “In local news, police have finally gunned down Andrew D from his murderous rampage.” (25%)

6) “OMGWTFLOLBBQ, aafuss just got bant good!” (29%)

(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!

Sharing the third place spot with 7% of the vote each are... BoltBait, david.atwell, pyrochild, & Rick Brewster

The runner-up with 9% of the votes is... Crazy Man Dan

And, the winner with 16% of the vote is... Ash

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! Also, to DarkShock91 for making the nifty banner you see above.

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

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

I guess I do debate a lot if it has to do with cars, so I understand the most eccentric nomination :)

With the second most number of posts on the board, how did you not win the Troll award? :shock:

Anyway, I would like to thank everyone that voted for me. It has been a pleasure serving you as mod of this forum. You really do make my job easy.

People don't think a person who posts a lot as a troll usually, they more attribute it to people who they don't like. Or a person who spams a lot, or flames a lot.

My personal thanks goes out to all who voted for me as well. :)

And well done, BoltBait. This is quite an achievement!

Felicitations to all the winners!

Are y'all insane? That's...I don't even come CLOSE to deserving that! But thank you anyway. I think the winner DEFINITELY deserved it.

Before I move on to the last part of my speech, I wanted to give a quick shout out to CommanderSozo, Rubrica, Yata, Wither, The_Lionhearted, and Andrew D, whose names I thought would have fit quite well in several places. I think they're great and integral parts of the community.

I'd also like to congratulate the winners. I think the awards are well-deserved.

And now...

The Proton Award:

And, the winner with 25% of the vote is... david.atwell

I moved this one to the end because words simply cannot express how grateful I am for being voted this one. I am humbled that you think me so valuable to our little community. You guys are awesome, and I'm glad to know all of you.

Here's to a great 2007, and hopes for a greater 2008.

Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

@Wither: I think you certainly deserved mention on the list. There were certainly too few awards to go around to the number of people who deserved them.

...Most likely to become mod was obvious...

How so?

Why, thank you to the both of you. And a most well-deserved winnings on your part, too!
I only hope to provide many more such [signatures] in the future!
There cannot be any doubt in that regard, Helio :D.
...Most likely to become mod was obvious...

How so?

Oh, come now, you and I (in reality, we) all know... ;)
thanks everyone
No, thank you. The Big Bird Award was destined for you, and for good reason, too. You bring a certain quality to this here community, and I'm sure every single one of us is grateful for that... and you. Well done oma!

-----------------------------------------------------

Once again, a big congratulations to all!
