    As you know, you can vote [http://www.smogon.com/smog/awards/nominations] on the nominations page, but this is the place to discuss the whole process! Pretty much who you think will take out each category, early contenders in your opinion and so on~

    Just don't tell people to vote for you or something in specific here c:

    Are we going to have Runner Ups in this or no? (this is my first smog awards btw) Also pfft, user chameleonskyes has the Best Artist Award in the bag and I'm sure the OU council will agree with me :]

    I think we ought to bring nominees for the "Best Smogon Thread Not Posted on Smogon's Forums (url)" category to light, both because it's a category you probably won't see much on smogon in general and because most are worth a good read because of how hilariously delusional some of the anti-smogon logic is.

    My vote goes to this thread.
    Excitement, Redew, Celever and 6 others like this.

    Most Overlooked User should go to someone who didn't get any votes for the Most Overlooked User category IMO. (Alternatively, we can all vote bmelts and everything will be okay)

    On a serious note I feel bad that when I send in my votes that there'll be so many blank spaces but I just don't really pay attention to the tournament scene much so I have no clue who the best battlers are, save for a few names.

    very disappointed at the lack of great sage references in the "just for fun" section

    also vote great sage for MOTY.

    It's not like sandz/brikal aren't gonna sweep the nice categories again :)

    sandshrewz (for attention) or others, can you make the form saveable or at least make it remember your responses? tbh I'm not going to do this all in one sitting because it's just too long

    If it was a full-fledged system, definitely. Unfortunately it's a bit harder because it's more of a "hackish" solution. It can be done, I think. But I don't know if I really have the time to add it in in time. I will check into it for sure though.

    Initially, I didn't really like the ToastPlusOne -> Toast++ change haha. But in the end, I think it might fit for best name change :o!

    Indeed SIU for luckiest player. Winning two speed ties twice /me cry :(

    I'm inclined to disagree with this, I'd say Mack the Knife is the most deserving of a win in this category. It is kind weird to think of him as new since he's been around for a while now, but when you consider that these awards are for all of 2013 and he did in fact join in February 2013, I think he still technically qualifies? He earned a media contributor badge for writing for The Smog in just 7 or so months so that's pretty good.

    OU Council by chameleonskyes for best art and FireMage ---> bland for worst name change I have no doubt will win, but that's fine because I'd vote for those too.

    ...am I the only one who thought Jukain was a good name change? My best name change vote goes to Poppy ---> gookie though.

    I'd also vote for Superpowerdude for best mentor and Ace Emerald for best tutor.

    I do feel kind of bad knowing nothing about some sections (like tournaments) and leaving a huge section blank, but eh, what can you do lol

    Thanks Gato and Hula. Hula is also a good writer. Gato should totally win best falming cat. Ladysalamence is an underrated use IMO.
