**The 2011 (un)Official PSF Community Awards**

19 Replies 1,165 Views Created 30-11-2011

Well, here we are again. Like always, in the month of December I'll be hosting the annual community awards. If you're familiar with the rules, skip down to the second dotted line. For those who have been here less than a year or don't know how the system works, I'd advise you to read the following before posting your vote:

 

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

 

Every year, the community votes publically in recognition for the contributions and achievements made by a number of the most prominent members of the PlayStation Forum over the last 12 months. There are a number of categories which I will list below, and in each category you may vote for another active member. These awards are light-hearted and intended as goodwill, since there are no prizes aside from gratitude.

 

VOTING RULES:

 

- Each member of the community is allowed to vote

- Only 1 vote per person may be registered

- In the event that you enter multiple names, unless it is clear who you are voting for, the first name entered will be considered as your vote

- Members may not vote for themselves

- Members may not petition other users to vote for themselves or any other member

- Members may change their vote as often as they like up until the closing period

- If you wish to change your vote and are unable to, please leave a new reply clearly marking your edited votes

- Voting closes at 12:00am on 1 January, 2012 EST (1:00am EDST)

 

 

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

 

In light of feedback from last year's polling, some categories have been axed as they are no longer as particularly relevent to the community. A major issue that has plagued awards in the past is repeat winners. While there are no rules or limitations about who you vote for, I would remind everyone in the community to vote with sincere thought about whether that person exceeded all others this year in that category.

 

Without further ado, here are this year's categories:

BRONZE AWARDS 

 

The Kevin Butler Award: Biggest PlayStation Fanboy

 

The Atkinson: Biggest Noob

 

Trophy Ho: Most Impressive Trophy Collection

Hey rcoll,

I am happy to see you are doing the Community awards agani this year, as much as I would love to vote, as a mod I better not cause I don't wanna be biased towards anyone.

Good luck to all those nominated and hopefully we get a good number of members voting.

Hi Rcoll,

 

Good on for doing this again, but as Kiwi says above it's pretty hard to pick people in a quiet (very) year. Add to the fact that I've been on the forums far less and it makes the job even harder tbh. Like you said I don't just want to pick names I know , just because...

 

I can comment on a few specific names , or people I have seen posting and have caught my attention..

 

Aplogies to the forumers in case I get their handles wrong..

 

While a current holder of an official forum title, Renze is a regular poster who brings a level head, a sense of humour and good technical knowledge..

 

RandAPle4 is another member who responds to countless people (who many others despair at) in the technical threads (as does Renze) 

 

There are a few newbs who have come/ gone and 1 post threaded it....(seems the norm lately)...but one who is sticking around lately is makobeaver....very enthusiastic and good on him/her...

 

All of this is probably missing those people who post heavily in niche threads that I rarely read...so sorry,..it also doesn't include regular (and possibly more infrequent) posters such as Silver, skeefer, Agunzi and yourself Rcoll (etc..myself included)

 

I think even my old mate (he of silly post count) has slowed down a bit these days or has wandered to forums affield in search of conversation.....gone seem to be the days of "live" warts and all banter/flame wars...

 

As always ..I'll always stick my head in (probably more tha SAIUN...lol) and comment as much as I can :)

 

Q/ Where's STJ ??? - missed his Uncharted banter for this release...the thread has been a tad dead without him..

 

 EDIT:..sorry, Kiwi posted in the games awards thread..not this one..

The multi time 'Class President' as usual speaks many wise words, and in a way I had pictured in my head to say myself, but feared would come out as kiwi-waffle...

 

Certainly for me, Renze deserves to hold on to his 'Most Helpful Forumer' title.... and makobeaver has been the forumer to me who is the 'Rookie of the Year - Best Newcomer'

 

Most missed forumer for me without doubt is STJ... while there are plenty of others I could list, most of those (including rcoll, lol) I know do still lurk, at least on occasion, and sometimes still post... STJ incidently I do know via facebook has had a very busy year outside of gaming, with graduating university, getting a job, and amongst other things, was recently awarded his blue belt in BJJ.... so big congrats to him for that..

 

Best Moderator - This time I'll nominate stupidbunnysuit, as sbs has been very active in such a short period of time (of account reg)

 

Best avatar - I also nominate stupidbunnysuit... Sorry, I can't remember who designed it (tho remember the thread).. but it's brilliant, lol..

 

The rest I'll really have to think on... but as smelck says, it's hard during a really quiet year, one that has been quieter than even the previous year...

 

Re: he of silly (but way less infrequent than days of past) post count... well, the posting has dropped significantly, but the forums still very much remain one of half a dozen or so open tabs in my browser every day, along with fb, NZGamer, BTG clan forums, MightyApe, and the Stuff newsite... I sometimes go through bursts of posting in the euro section, but it is so big and there are so many people in that region, that I actually lose track of what threads I post in, lol...

Gone But Not Forgotten: A lot of people who could be in this one. Eg Deamonpainter, Harlequiine, stuit, RasOlo, and many more but not having STJ to gasm over and hype up uncharted 3 was weird so my vote goes to him.

No matter, I've been doing my bit in private

 

Trophies/Achievements list

 

I've had a quickie glance while trying to avoid spoilers, and there doesn't seem to be anything too spoilerish there... just your usual 'complete this town' trophies... other than that, just your usual 'customise/upgrade' weapon style achievements, ala Bioshock, some driving and multiplayer..

 

If you are going for multiple difficulties, it could be a bit of a time killer... I suspect, it won't be a blink and miss linear storyline like the CODs, Resistances , and Killzones...

Still getting this one, just wont be release day :(
