Coming Soon: PF Member Awards 2015

  1. Dec 3, 2015 #1
    The often imitated but never duplicated PF Member Awards are coming back for 2015! The PF Member Awards have been hosted for 13 years. It's a popular vote where the community votes for their favorite nominee. These nominee's have been selected by staff for their outstanding contributions throughout the year.

    This year we are excited to unveil 3 new categories:
    1. Guidance Counselor Award
    2. Insights Writer Award
    3. Top Insights Article Award

    Public polls open on December 16th and will close December 30th. Award ceremony will be held on Jan 2nd.

    You have 13 days to make an impression. Go!

    I remind all nominees of the time honored tradition of bribing your favorite mentor with fish and christmas gifts in the back alley for more votes... I also accept visa, mastercard, and firstborns...

    Where's the list of the rest of the categories?

    They will all be shown in a thread as a poll, once the voting is opened

    Would you like the firstborns delivered by Fed X or Amazon airmail? But I'm guessing that bribing someone will make you ineligible for being nominated. Am I correct?

    I should hope not! That's why I want it as a category. It's damned hard staying as grumpy as I am and I think I should get an award for it.

    That's the grumpiest thing I have heard since I heard myself grumpying over the fact that being a mentor disqualified me from the newcomer award last year! :-p

    We should have a category on favorite crackpot. It will be the toughest category because one has to catch all the gems being posted by the crackpot before they are summarily deleted and before the crackpot was snuffed out of existence from PF.

    The winner will have their screen name embossed on a picture of a cracked pot, and with the Ghostbusters slash across it. It will be prominently displayed in the PF hall of shame (oh, you didn't know that we have one?).

    NOOOO! From my experience here at PF, Zz is the crackpot and troll detector. :oldbiggrin:
