If memory serves, the general procedure has been to have the month of November for nominations and the month of December for voting, except last year when we forgot until midway through November. Anyway it's probably worth starting to talk about categories, procedure, etc., so we don't get caught off guard this time around.

For those who need a memory refresher the old awards rounds can be viewed [forum=76]here[/forum].

I can't think of any new categories.

I have a (slight) problem with the best noob award....like, basically I hate having to choose one person when it seems we get at least 4 great new members a year. I dunno.. something about it doesn't sit right with me. Like can't we just give awards to all those who get nominated? Something like 'Awesome Noob'? :sadpanda:

Are we going to do that thing where some of us want less categories and then we end up with like 30 anyway or are we skipping that part this year because tbh we seem to do it every year and it never changes :monster:

^ I'd still support having fewer categories but I'm not going to suggest it any more. I just didn't vote in all the categories I didn't care about last year, and I'll do the same again this year. So let's skip that part :)

Flint, funnily enough I was going to say about the categories.

I liked the categories last year even though there was a lot of them (42) I guess there's no harm in keeping them, people just tend to pick the ones they want to nominate anyways, no harm in having a variation of categories.

Anyways I'm kinda excited about them this year :)

I'M TAKING BEST ASS AND TITS AWARDS THIS YEAR. Probably from the lifeless body of the rightful winner, but still valid IMO. :monster:

Can't we make a category for best bod or best muse? At least give me incentives to nominate who I think has the beautiful bod and is a beautiful muse!!

Can anyone make a list of last years categories? I clicked to the forum for last year but two clicks and I still hadn't found it :monster:

I suggest renaming 'Best Ship' to 'OTP'

Awards I suggest:

* Least likely to win an award - yes, bring it back :monster:
* TLS House Ghost - We don't see you post much but we know you're there (or just with us in spirit because you're talked about even when you're not there)

That's all I have for now

Best Cookie Monster outfit :D

I has Pjs, Carlie has Cookie monster stuff too and so do other members and he is our mascot this might end up being a fun category, someone might end up shoving a blue cardboard box over themselves or something and claim they're a pixelated cookie monster...picture it :D

Best gif reply needs to go. That was a self-serving category.

How about having TLS idol as part of the awards? Meaning, the results won't be known till like, December. ��

Best magician? Members submit a short video of themselves performing a magic trick they know.

Tallest member? This'll have to be honour-based cause we all live far away from each other. Someone creates a thread, and we reply with our height in it

I'll think of more....
