Best Overall Smogoner
Winner: DougJustDoug
And here's our winner! "I'm honored to be recognized for overall participation in the community. This was an exciting year in Smogon, and I had lots of fun being a part of it. I'm not really sure any one individual "deserves" an award like this in Smogon. I happen to work on some highly visible projects, but almost all those projects involve a team or community effort of some kind. So, any credit given to me individually is rightfully shared with all the folks that I worked with over the past year. And, of course, I'm real lucky that April Fool's joke didn't blow up in our faces -- I would never have lived that one down!"

Best Overall Poster
Winner: DougJustDoug

I think people may have been confused that they were voting for the Most TL;DR Award, but I'll humbly accept anyway! I spend a lot of time and effort writing posts on Smogon, often agonizing over word choices and formatting. Despite the effort, I know I wrote my fair share of bad posts this past year. So I appreciate that my crummy stuff didn't linger too much or for too long.

And here's a tip to other up-and-coming posters in the community with hopes of getting a posting award someday: 'When you are making a post, try to figure out a way to include a sprite of a pimped-out penguin with an afro. Don't ask why. Just do it.'
