Too lazy to update OP but probably will send prospective list of awards to other managers in the next couple days and maybe we can get voting done in time to release results as finals end.

So if you guys are holding on to any clever ideas probably time to let that shit go.

I got a little behind on this with Smogon being temporarily destroyed by lasers or whatever and then finals coming but ballots were sent out today. Here is what I sent to keep everyone in the loop:

Also I found out Hunt does in fact have assistants after I sent this but for some reason they aren't listed on the roster page so they can deal with this themselves I guess.

ok SO SPL Award voting lets make it happen

The voting pool is 21 people, with 2 voters from each team and an extra vote from LN. I would have included Mekkah as well but I'm pretty sure I may as well poll random people on the street at that point as they had similar levels of involvement.

Anyway, I picked the team manager and then the assistant manager who seemed most active of the two(or a player rather arbitrarily if no assistant existed or the assistant(s) was obviously inactive). If teams would like other people on their teams to use their two votes they can go ahead, just keep it to two votes per team.

Voter pool is currently:
Sharks: makiri, MoP
Ruiners: whistle, Earthworm
Scooters: Synre, evan
Wolfpack: Jackal, goofball
Tigers: tennisace, GoldenKnight
Brits: Kinneas, Tab
Bigs: Fabbles, CTI
Raiders: RBG, Aerrow
Classiest: Dubulous, Stallion
Cryonicles: Huntofthelion, bad ass
Commish: LonelyNess

If someone really wanted a category I didn't pick, let me know and we'll see what we can do, but basically I picked categories with these restrictions in mind:
1. Awards mean more if we can use the same awards year after, so I tried to pick stuff that will work every year. Stuff like rookie of the year that kind of sucks this year with SPL1 and SPL2 so close together will be better in the future.
2. I tried to stay positive with awards. There's a one negative one, but I don't think it's necessary to mock people with awards too much and winning should be good here. With the remaining negative award, people set themselves up so I don't feel too guilty. Definitely behavior we want to discourage.
3. Awards don't mean much if there is too many of them. We had lots of cool ideas, but if we vote on 35 awards who really gives a fuck about each one?
4. I tried to stick to categories general enough that most of our voter pool would actually be able to vote intelligently. Awards need to be based on something observable by everyone.

Voting Rules:
1. Vote for a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place option for each player, which will be tallied at the end on a 5/3/1 point scale.
2. Do not vote for your own players in any category. This removes some of the bias.
3. I'd like to have all votes in by April 30th at 11:59pm EST. It would be great if people could be faster than that so we can get this done, since I'm kind of lagging behind with the Smogon outage and then getting busy. Just PM me your votes ASAP.

Team Awards

2nd Place vote:
3rd Place vote:

Best Managed
Description: To be awarded to the management team you thought did the best job encompassing everything a manager has to do.

The All-SPL Team
Description: For this final award, simply fill out who you'd pick for each SPL metagame if you had everyone who played in the SPL available to play one game in each metagame and you absolutely had to win it. Judge based on how well you think players played in their respective metagames, not necessarily on their record, which we could just do objectively. Players must have played at least 3 games in the given metagame to be eligible. You still can't vote for your own players.

Anyway people are being super lazy on this I'll give it another 24 or 48 hours and then just tally it up with half the submissions missing.

If you aren't a manager of one of the four playoff teams probably you didn't bother to vote so you should get on this. Or hopefully you aren't one of those people and would instead like to harass them to get their votes in for me. Yeah.

Results for SPL awards finally up here as I officially give up on getting votes. Speaking of which, here are the votes I actually received seperated by team:

Sharks 2/2
Ruiners 2/2
Scooters 2/2
Wolfpack 2/2
Tigers 0/2
Bigs 1/2
Brits 1/2
Classiest 1/2
Cryonicles 1/2
LonelyNess: 0/1

There was a clause with the voting that voters couldn't vote for their own team, so if a vote within a few points with a player who's managers voted losing to one who didn't I had every intention to give it to the person from the team that actually voted, since that's probably would have happened anyway. I never actually thought a situation was appropriate to do so, but I'm totally willing to change something posthumously there if someone makes a good argument. Every category required a 1st/2nd/3rd vote with a 5-3-1 point system awarded. If managers were too stupid to actually fill out all 3 for the category I should probably have had some sort of penalty, but really at this point I'm just happy some people voted at all. This also goes for people who voted for people for rookie of the year who weren't actually rookies, which is mindblowing but I hopefully just ignored those votes.

Since 11 of us voted, the most any one player could get in any category ranged from 50-60 points depending on if they were on a team with active managers who actually voted or not. I arbitrarily included Honorable Mentions to people who were relatively close to the top 2 in a given category.
