Introduction

The year has gone by so fast.

On January 5th, the 'last page link' was created for the forums, which has since become the last major contribution to the site. This lack of attention was solidified when WebCorp launched DORK on February 3rd and, just recently, Stuff.org.

On February 8th, the site's domain changed from "Debate.com" to "Debate.org," so that WebCorp would not have to pay a lease. Back then, the site puportedly made WebCorp a mere $5 a day. Just a few weeks ago, ads ceased to exist on WebCorp.

Also at the beginning of February, the 2nd Mafia game ended. It was unthemed. Now, we have had several mafia games, all of them increasingly more intricate than the games that preceded them.

On March 3rd, a major votebomber was banned, and the long awaited vote-bomb-removal program was released. Phil, the president of WebCorp, organized a private group to ask how best to improve the site. He decided to alter the "Votes" tab on DDO's debates. This has yet to happen.

In May, a prominent DDO was sent a cease and desist letter, telling him not to create an account ever again. Unrelated to this incident, three more prominent members were banned, but fortunately, they are still around today. Since then, many others have been banned. Most of them, though, eventually get their accounts back.

Through June and July, the decision was made to close down Debate Fans. Since, DDOFans has been constructed in its place.

Throughout this entire year, old time regulars have left, and new comers have found a home. More debates. Happy discussions on the forums. Laughing. Feuds. And a strong community.

The second true year of DDO has certainly been an interesting one. And with this year nearing an end, I present to you the 2009 DDO Awards.

Technical stuff

Voting will end on 25 December 12:00 AM (DDO Time).

Rules.
1) Try to vote for as many categories as possible. If you really can't make a decision, then write "SKIPVOTE," but do not just delete a category. (See my example.) It makes it easier to count votes.
2) You are encouraged to leave a RFD. Why did you vote for this user?
3) Please don't spam this thread; leave discussion to a minimum.
4) No voting yourself. Votes for yourself will not be counted.
5) You may only vote for one person per category. Also, if you wish to change your vote, make it very clear.
6) Please don't joke vote. Be serious. I should not distinguishing "real" votes and "fake" votes, though I do have ultimate discretion.

Tips.
1) If you're being voted for a negative category, don't take it too seriously. This is all fun and games. This isn't real life.
2) If you're not being voted for any category, don't worry. It doesn't really matter. And there's always next year.

You were voted for best poster only by Volkov. theLwerd put you as her second choice, but the rules clearly state that you may only nominate one person per category.

B/t/w, the vote count is available upon request (PM me).

In addition, had I included people with only one vote in that category, I would have had to list ten people.

Funniest user:
theLwerd
RFD: Similar sense of humor to myself, a good combination of taking serious things seriously, taking other things jokingly.

Biggest attention whore:
SKIP VOTE

Drama queen:
Pervrat
RFD: Because he is a massive drama queen?

Never logs off:
theLwerd
RFD: Self-explanatory. This was a close one between her and Ragnar though, but Lwerd just trumps him.

I miss yew:
DATCMOTO
RFD: He had a good sense of humor, he incited a lot of discussion, he was a prolific poster which gave me a lot to respond to at work.

Master topic creator:
Volkov
RFD: Although a majority of his posts are about politics, which isn't my bag, he spreads himself out over several topics and is quite prolific when it comes to creating topics. Basically, if he creates a topic in anything other than Politics, which he does often, I'm usually interested in it.

Rookie of the year:

(Note: all votes were counted, even those for 1+ year users)
Why? Defeats the purpose.

Volkov
RFD: He has been an excellent addition to the site, what more can I say?

Most improved debater:
SKIP VOTE

Biggest spammer:
banker
RFD: He is a massive spamaholic, and his spam posts aren't even interesting.

Most overrated:
SKIP VOTE

Most underrated:
alto2sou
RFD: She's insightful and a great debater, gets very little credit. She is also good with giving RFDs for her votes and tips on debating, which is a rarity.

Best thread:
...um (http://www.debate.org...)
RFD: It was a fun day. :)

Best debate:
SKIP VOTE

Best moment:
theLwerd is banned and the ensuing controversy.
RFD: Was a good shake-up of the site for a couple of days. Kept me tuning in for more.

Best would-be-moderator:
PoeJoe
RFD: These DDO awards (not to mention the love ballad he penned for the site) are a testament to his dedication to the site, and what more does a mod need than dedication really?

Worst poster:
banker
RFD: He's boring and repetitive.

Best poster:
theLwerd
RFD: As far as forums go, she is prolific and her posts are generally insightful, well thought-out and span basically every topic. As far as debate comments go, she always gives RFD for my debates, which is rare, and her comments let you know she not only read the debate but understood it and thought about it.

Most insightful:
Ragnar_Rahl
RFD: I don't think I agree with many of his beliefs, but I am always interested in hearing about them.

Best debater:
theLwerd
RFD: She takes on a wide range of debates, often many at a time, and puts a lot of effort into each one. Her position on the leader board is a testament to her skills.

Best user '09:
theLwerd
RFD: All the reasons given above for the various awards I voted her for.
"Let me tell you the truth. The truth is, 'what is'. And 'what should be' is a fantasy, a terrible terrible lie that someone gave to the people long ago. The 'what should be' never did exist, but people keep trying to live up to it. There is no 'what should be,' there is only what is." - Lenny Bruce

"Satan goes to church, did you know that?" - Godsands

"And Genisis 1 does match modern science... you just have to try really hard." - GR33K FR33K5

You got left out of the 'Most Insightful' category, because you only had one vote from wjmelements. Had I included people with only one vote, I would have had to list eleven people.

But you're right about the 'Underrated' category, and I sincerely apologize. In fact, I also didn't include Volkov's thread nomination. I must have skipped the middle part of his vote.

Not sure why I got left out. :/

You got left out of the 'Most Insightful' category, because you only had one vote from wjmelements. Had I included people with only one vote, I would have had to list eleven people.

But you're right about the 'Underrated' category, and I sincerely apologize. In fact, I also didn't include Volkov's thread nomination. I must have skipped the middle part of his vote.

Well if Geo is now in the Most Underrated category, then I must change my vote:

Most Underrated: Geo
