Happy New Year! It's been another incredible year 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.

Are these awards recorded anywhere? It would be nice to see a list of the winners for each award over the years in one place.

Thanks to everybody voting for me and congratulations to @vanhees71 after a close race!

It also warms my heart to see jim hardy posthumously taking his rightful permanent place in the hall of legends. I did not have much direct interactions with him as he mainly frequented the engineering forums, but even so it was impossible to miss his enormous passion and influence.

This year I can again credibly post this video :wink:

If you scroll down, you should see a list of at least some of the previous year's winners. But I do think a sticky would be nice.

You've got five badges already -- if you really want even more, perhaps you could apply for mentorship :oldlaugh: ?

That is one less than yesterday. :-p
Also, mentors don't get to show their HH, SA, and emiritus badges ... :oldeyes:

Then you lose all apart from the insight author (and 20xx award if applicable).

@Orodruin: You'll have a good chance to get an award in 2020 again.

Don’t know about that. That would imply making meaningful contributions ...

I am so honored to win in a category named for Marcus. I won't say more about him, because nothing could do justice to his contributions. I recall that he and bcrowell (missing him as well) were the two who initially nominated me for science advisor, so a circle is closed with this humbling award.

The jim hardy Engineering Award leaves me with mixed feelings, of survivor guilt, and the impostor syndrome.

Jim would be honored in your winning of the Engineering Award. And if he were still with us, would have voted for you.

Congratulations to all the winners - it was an honour to have been a competitor in such illustrious company. I would have to admit that most of the articles in Insights Writers' category(ies) were beyond my ken!
