Welcome ladies, gentlemen, and anyone in-between, to the first Annual Neo Card Maker Awards! We're here to celebrate our first year together as a new site, as well as look back on the past fondly! With the RP Awards wrapping up, it's the perfect time to come in with some more general awards for the site as a whole. And, what luck, it's just before the anniversary! In fact, the awards will be given out ON the anniversary!
Thank you all for your support in getting NCM off the ground! This is the final event of the Year of Rebirth, but the site still has a long ways to go. I, and the rest of the mod team, hope to have an even brighter, even more exciting year in 2020! So let's ring it in with a bang!
However, we do need to have a few ground rules before I move us to the categories.
In contrast to the RP Awards, all votes will be via PM. You will send them to me, @Blake, and @Yui, who will assist me in tallying. Discussion of votes is discouraged. This thread can be used for discussion, but please do not make cases trying to sway opinions. Please make sure to specify they are for the 2019 awards in the PM title.
Please do not vote if you are not active. This is mostly a matter for oneself, I'm just asking you use discretion.
You cannot vote for yourself.
You cannot vote for the same person more than 2 TIMES, with the exception of one award, which is specified.
Similarly, someone cannot receive more than 2 awards.
You must vote in at least 5 categories.
You must have your vote in by 12 AM PST, January 5th. You can edit it up until that point.
Those who vote receive 1000 points when it ends! Get working on those shop items, like a Custom Member Group or Profile Video!
Alright! With that out of the way, the categories for this year are:
Simply vote for the best all-around member of the site! A Jack-of-all-trades. Someone you see a lot. The person who you're happiest to see. Whatever criteria, vote for who you think is the best!
Who do you find to be the best at making cards? It could be a design buff, someone who posts a lot, someone who does zany things, or whatever other criteria you have when it comes to creating cards.
Like to RP? Like to Write? This is the award for you! Select the person whose writing you either find the most properly executed or entertaining!
Who's the kindest member you can think of? Or most helpful? Maybe just the most willing to listen? Maybe they're just super cordial and/or pleasant? This award is for whoever you think has the most positive impact on people, be it you, the masses, some other individual, or a combo there-of!
Okay, this one isn't very obvious at all... But it's for the ultimate jokester! Who makes you laugh until your ribcage hurts? Who posts the memes that draw your eye? Who makes you grin and show those pearly whites? Well, you should have a funny bone to pick with whoever you think fits!
Who seems like they're the most involved in site happenings? Whose voice do you hear the most? Who has been a force of change? Whoever you think of, that's who goes here! The most influential member, in your eyes. However, please note that you cannot vote for @Tormented, @LordCowCow, @The Warden, @Yemachu, or myself, @Blake for this award.
You ever see a member who you just think has a snazzy avatar, signature, profile, or all of the above? Well, give them a shout-out! This award is for whoever is the most stylish member!
In past years, we've had awards for veterans or newbies... But neither of those feel quite right with the state of our little site. We're all new, yet old, with a few exceptions. So, I asked myself, what is the thing that can be quantified similarly? Old, yet new. Or new, but old. And it clicked. This is the Year of Rebirth! Who do you think you've seen change the most over this past year on NCM? Who has been reborn, in your eyes?
This is a bit of a fun award, but it's not really that difficult. But, for this one, you vote for 2 instead of one! Yes, this is an award where you name the most iconic duo on NCM! This award does not count towards the voting restriction, so feel free to pick whatever twosome you want!
For ease of access
With that, I wish everyone good luck! Let's usher in the second year of NCM with applause!
