    I'm pretty sure Ryder only ever posted in response to me, so does that really count? Maybe his score could be transferred to mine, as I'm his inspiration.

    I'm not sure who Liver er herlig and Wind are. Maybe they should join a competitive server, then they would have some real competition for contributions.

    Anyway, I think I'll update a couple of posts today to increase my chances of winning. Depends how much work I have on.

    I was going to nominate MLGJ as he says it as it is, some might not agree with him but he's just what this forum needs!
    So he would get my nomination and vote.

    It's hilarious how some of these nominations I've never heard of...

    Should be a separate poll for 'Mod of the year'

    And Adam gets my vote hands down!

    To be fair Livet er herlig has made a grand total of 11 posts this year, almost 1 per month, Sam's not been around for 6 months, Wind....who? Chriscv has contributed how? I would call this a farce but then I'd be mocking a mockery..Unless Bloated wins 1st, 2nd and 3rd then I give up on this place

    Well yes but she did run the competitions, and that's a decent contribution. It's not like we can blame the nominated people for being nominated, since they didn't do it themselves. Maybe we all should have nominated more players?

    You hit the nail on the head there. The number of nominations was so low that all nominees are listed, we expected to have many more nominated people, but most of the active forum users did not send any nomination.

    Unfortunately you did not send a nomination via PM otherwise he would have been on the list

    I didn't notice the thread till nominations had nearly finished and I'm active. I don't blame the people for being nominated but surely mods should have been excluded or given their own award.

    Maybe it would have helped if the thread was posted somewhere people check?

    I had a ton of people I wanted to chose but I only skim read the original post and thought my nominations were actually votes *facepalm moment*. I already thought I was being cheeky picking two people. I think I could have had the list increased by at least 10 with other people I wanted to vote for.

    I agree that MODs should've had a separate poll. They do contribute a lot, but isn't that the job? MOD of the year would be a good way to praise those who go above and beyond.

    No idea how certain people on the list got a nomination and I didn't, and you all wonder why I'm so grumpy..

    I think it's a conspiracy led by Chris in conjunction with Bloated to keep us two normally happy go lucky people down.

    I think that's almost certain, we were the kind youths of the forum before becoming jaded by the work of those who envied our happiness and charm.

    I am slightly uncomfortable with the idea that mods couldn't be included here.

    That's kind of like saying, if you get given a couple of shiny buttons in the forums then you cease to be a person with anything interesting to contribute, you're just a policeman now. That's fingernails on a chalkboard for me.

    MLGJ, young?

    Anyways, I'm not actually fussed about whether mods are eligible or not - doing the right thing, rather than getting credit for it is the important thing to me. Nevertheless, I went digging:
    for mod account: sent 90 or so messages; 20 or so posts/threads (mostly around two sets of competitions); and 30 or so infractions (mostly a spate of bad behaviour around the start of the year - other have been far better at doing the spambots); did +rep for those posting/constructively responding in server award threads.
    for 'my' account: sent 90 or so messages; couple of hundred posts; hosted a couple of skype quizzes; ran a WVV I think with Slinky Snail and kept an eye on another two.
    Others were far better at keeping WWK etc. threads up to date.

    For the debate about, the vast majority of stuff - imo - was stuff I was doing before I was crew such as sharing knowledge about the game or taking a turn doing a WWK thread, as other experienced players on the list do too (BF, Ryder, wgn)

    (But December is definitely a v. busy month back in real life...)

    Are you saying policemen aren't people with interesting things to contribute?
