Featured Announcement 2018 PF Award Ceremony

  1. Jan 2, 2019 #1
    Happy New Year! It's been another incredible 365 days spent on PF!

    Congrats to all who were nominated as it's a true honor. It should be remembered each voting list could easily have been ten times as long. We have an amazing core of members here at PF. A member may have won more than one category, but can be awarded for just one.

    Thanks all who participated in the voting and commentary!

    Now for a special congratulations to the popular vote winners! Winners will receive a special badge which will last the year.

    Are winners expected to give a speech? I'd be happy to recite some Particle Physics Poetry for everyone. 'The Little Quark that Couldn't (escape confinement)' is an especially enjoyable one I'm told.

    Wow, I really did not expect this before the vote, but got more and more anxious as time went on. This really means a lot to me since the category involves all of the winners from last year. A huge thanks to everybody who voted for me and to all other winners and nominees who make PF the best online forum.

    It was an honour to be nominated, and I was quite surprised to win the community spirit award. This shows that the media gallery has awaken from dormancy. Thanks to everyone who voted, and also, congratulations to the winners in the other sections.

    A number of people have a share in this award: @jedishrfu, who has rendered valuable help in determining categories for videos; @Greg Bernhardt, who has added media categories one after the other at my request; and last but not least, all the members who found the videos helpful. My aim of helping members by providing access to good quality lectures, has been fulfilled. :partytime:

    I beg to differ a bit. The winners here, in no way, can claim that only their contributions have made PF great. Every single member has a contribution; perhaps someone a bit more than the others while someone a bit less. We have all joined hands and pledged to make PF one of the best online science forums. :smile:

    I made no such pledge. I’m here only for the fish.
