    How about:

    Best UU poster(i.e best poster in Higher Ground/ UU discussion threads)
    Worst UU poster

    And this is slightly more tricky:

    Best writer(Analysis etc.)

    Just a thought.

    How about these:

    Best Smog Article (Issues 1-3)
    Most Influential Contribution of 2009

    And perhaps:

    Best CAP Poster (The community has grown quite a bit since last year).

    Most Active User
    Least Active User
    (although these would have to be calculated on post counter/number of days and could be influenced by spamming)

    Best Smogon Awards Category Suggester :D

    The reason I'm rejecting this is because it represents such a small fraction of the community.

    I can see that - along with "Best grammar checker" or something to those lines, and "Worst Grammar checker" :P

    That's not a question everyone can actually answer though, which is why it wasn't there the first time. This is because tutors are 1 on 1 sessions

    There is a "coolest new user" category but there isn't a Best New User category. People who would win this are those who recently joined and have already contributed a lot to the site. Just a thought.

    Most promising battler?

    Would be for new/unknown battlers, who have come in and shocked smogon with big wins, like what we saw in S8 Tour.

    i would like most improved user to be added and i would be up for another "biggest suck-up / most clueless" award as it actually helps users attempt to turn around their smogon careers.

    also:

    best #stark user
    best #smogon user

    You have wittiest poster, but you could do "Most Wannabe-Wittiest Poster" for people who think they are witty but aren't. Also, I second Staraptor Call

    It would be cool to see a "Best Smog Article" category.
