    Ok, I'll be clear.

    Why not reviving the old Potato Awards?

    In my opinion, the project that Nixhex started like 9 months ago was a great idea.

    This project was really cool, it encouraged people to keep posting and contributing the site and, possibly, get a recognizing badge if your posts and discussions had enough quality. During those weeks I saw how the activity increased like a boom, people were eager to discuss and share their point of view as well as helping the new Smogonites in the Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer thread. However, the project died. Two weeks passed, three weeks, a month, two months, three months, but no Potato was chosen.

    I understand that keeping the thing up is a huge responsibility, but if it is possible to start it again...why not?

    The reason this died is that we just never really posted it again. It's that simple. However, the OU mods periodically search for new CC badge candidates, so we use that instead of Potato. @Chou Toshio is the latest winner. As far as other forums go, those mods are free to implement the Potato as they see fit, but this is just how the OU forum ended up neglecting it.

    I strongly suggest to go to the Simple Questions, Simple Answers thread, there you can get some advice from more experienced players, or just send me a PM / VM.

    @LilOuOn, you are a very good troll. That I must admit.
