Okay guys, here's how this is going to play out. Some of you who visit ScrewAttack were unhappy with how the contest was ran, drama, etc. Well... I'm sure that'll happen here, but we've done our best to come up with a simple solution to the problem.
We will have TWO awards this year, one for a Sidekick and another for a Henchmen (and please, no side switching guys unless it's a permanent switch, we're going off an honor system here.) However, we'll be deciding who is on the ballot in TWO separate ways!
We will have the top TWO nominations from the mods and the top TWO nominations from the sidekicks & henchmen added to the ballot (Top nominations are determined by the amount of times they were nominated.) However, there's a complicated (and fun) twist!
Only Sidekicks/Heroes can nominate Sidekicks and only Henchmen/Villains can nominate Henchmen! You are more or less nominating a representative from your own group as the numero uno of your group. You can't nominate yourself, and you must give a half decent validation for your nomination.
We will then hold a vote amongst all FOUR (not TWO) people who made the cut. We will do this for Sidekicks and for Henchmen so we'll have TWO polls going at once. Sidekicks and Henchmen are ALLOWED to vote for the opposing faction if they want to, but they're NOT allowed to nominate for them as previously stated.
Upon victory the winning Sidekick and winning Henchman will EACH receive a special reward, and they will commence in a FINAL showdown between good and evil to see who is superior, which will ultimately just be for shits and giggles and be recorded in the Golden Age forum (at a later date if we enable the Trophy mod I may award them a Trophy for winning), along with the rest of the contest.
Nominations should be based off whom has done the most for The Game Heroes, whether it be for the community, online game hosting, IRC chat running, submissions for the site, questions for the podcasts, just being a all around helpful forum member, etc. Don't nominate people JUST because they're "cool" or "funny".
Staff, Mods, & Admins are exempt from this contest and can't be nominated.
This post has been brought to you by the number 2.
NOMINATIONS ARE SUBMITTED VIA POSTING IN THIS TOPIC! (Staff/Admins/Mods will be nominating in our super secret sub-forum.)
REMEMBER, YOU MUST NOMINATE FROM YOUR OWN SIDE NOT THE OPPOSING SIDE! YOU CAN ONLY NOMINATE A SINGLE PERSON! MAKE YOUR NOMINATION COUNT!
CAPSLOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL!
Nominations End on December 19th, Voting Begins on December 21st
