    Jesus triple-jumping christ, I come back a day later and there are two new pages filled of fecal matter cleverly disguised as words.

    Did everyone notice I posted two whole paragraphs right above the list of nominees, or did everyone just go "LIST" and completely skip over them? If you read them you'll see this:

    I can't stress how close these were. But if it comes down to the fifth spot in a category, and one guys has 4 nominations and another has 3... GUESS WHAT? The guy with 3 isn't making it in. And that happened A LOT. So wipe the sand out of your vaginas guys.

    Secondly... I understand that I'm relatively new, and I'm probably not the best person to be running this. Some of you people know each other going on 4-5 years for fuck's sake. I'm just celebrating my 1-year anniversary on the boards, and I have not been on NB for more then 5 consecutive minutes. I'm doing the best with the knowledge I have with the community, so lighten the fuck up on me.

    EDIT: Now that I think about it, you in the community are the ones who made these nominations, I have had and will have absolutely no input in this, so you can guess where you should redirect your admonitions.

    I appreciate chaos and a couple other people giving me some useful, constructive criticism, and the changes have been duly noted and I will edit those out of the nominations list. But in the case of jpchato as Best Noob Poster, I stand by it, because although his member number is very low he just started posting regularly, like, 4-5 months ago. Up until that he had about 30 or so posts, if I recall right. So it's kinda like he's a new poster, see?

    And no, latinoheat, I'm not new to the boards, but I didn't go to #Smogon until late March, same with Anomalous and Aeolus.

    So, I am going to edit the list of nominees. This will cause the list of nominees to change, because I want to keep 5 in each category if possible, so taking some names out might bump new ones in. I will respond to all vote PMs I've gotten so far and ask people to revote if they would like to.

    What is the smogon newcomer actually based on then,because last time i looked these are the smogon forums and are therfore assoicated with smogon.
    Also Aeolus and Anamolous are also in nbattle newcomer when they have already said they have been here over a year.

    I don't mean to sound like a cunt but i just think something is fucked up if people who have been here a year plus and in most cases even admitted it, are getting nominated into newcomer catogories.

    DM is right, I only started posting a lot during november. I used to have dial-up and I didn't get that much computer time.

    Also, that sand in the vagina comment reminded me of that south park episode where family guy makes fun of mohammed.

    latinoheat you don't even post here, why on earth would you care except to start an argument. don't post in this thread again, i'm tired of you. time has nothing to do with being a noob or not; it's how much of a name you have made for yourself. even though you have a low member number here, i for the life of me can't recognize who you are and therefore you would still be considered a noob.

    thanks but no thanks for your valuable input

    So basically these awards are nothing more then a popularity contest Also despite the numerous people who have also pointed out that half of them are not newcomers, even the people themself, im the only one you bitch about what the fuck is that. Also just because i haven't posted alot in my 3 years on netbattle does not mean i am a noob.

    It does if it concerns posting on these boards. Until you posted in this thread, I didn't even know you existed. So settle down.

    The categories are:
    Best Netbattle Newcomer
    Best #Smogon Newcomer
    Best Noob Poster

    NONE of those have anything to do with member number. They deal with how long you've been participating regularly in each case.

    I'm done arguing about useless things, just keep voting.

    So even if the person has battled and regulary been on the server for a year he is still a newcomer wow.

    Anyway theres no point bitching about its not like its the first time a non newcomer won the award.

    it says #smogon newcomer- therefore a newcomer to the smogon irc channel!

    aeolus and anamalous are in there because people suck at nominating

    because you are the only one being a fucking cunt about it, and not really giving any constructive criticism!

    i feel like ranting but i am too lazy for that, just go argue with yourself in the mirror for me

    Didn't I just say to stop posting in this thread? You are doing nothing but starting fights and derailing the thread. Quit it. I'm serious - don't even reply to this post. Stay out of this topic or you will regret it.

    Hey, if it's not trouble, after all has been done, like winners and all, could we see like a list of everyones who's been nominated and who nominated them, if it's not any trouble, but I just thought that'd be interesting.

    Fuck. I thought that... actually, I don't know what I thought, other than "I AM A RETARD".

    Yeah, but the way I had it planned was so that people could PM me and ask me what they had been nominated for, if anything. I don't think it would be prudent to post the entire list.

    Agreeing with MoP though I think the nominator should be asked if he wants to have his name revealed.

    Also, Curby was nominated again. This makes me wonder what happened to him.
