Unfortunately, I accidentally skipped the middle part of Volkov's vote, and I sincerely apologize. For those who have already voted, your vote will still count. And of course, you can always amend your vote. Very many apologies.

I have now double and triple checked the votes.

This is the amended list. GeoLaureate8 has been added to "Most underrated" list, and "What is Liberalism" has been added to "Best thread." Again, I am tremendously sorry.

As always, the vote count is available upon request (PM me).

I know this isn't really allowed, but may we please add this thread?

It's a question from banker that was taken completely out of context, then turned into a pedo-fest.

wjmelements was nominated for Rookie once, by sac8.

I was nominated for Rookie once, by wjmelements.

I am a more valid candidate, as I am actually a rookie.

Why is wjmelements there, but I not?

Ahh, forget my query in the other voting thread. :P
"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

Very good question.

Come on, mongeese. Please lighten up. So what if wjm has been here a little longer? I feel that his debates, posts, and general attributes to the site are noteworthy and deserving of being rookie of the year. (I feel he really started contributing at the beginning of the year, so I can apply it)

Well since, Roy, is also a contender and gaining votes in the best debater category, I guess this nomination is moot. ^^

Funniest User: leet4a1

RFD: Eggleston's sarcasm is hilarious but trite; leet4a1 is clever and witty


Biggest Attention Whore:
GodSands

RFD: He's attention seeking and cares more about preaching than meaningful conversation.

Drama Queen: Philosophical

RFD: He's always making a big deal out of nothing.

Never logs off: Ragnar

RFD: Because I'm actually not on DDO as much as people think...

I Miss Yew: brittwaller

RFD: He's the only one on that list that I really corresponded with

Master Topic Creator: Volkov

RFD: This one was hard (with Geo as a close second!) but I went with Volkov since his posts are consistent and most of his participation happens in the forums anyway.

Rookie of the Year: Volkov

RFD: This was an obvious pick for me.

Most Improved Debater: KRF

RFD: KRF has put a lot of effort into his debating lately and it's showed.

Biggest Spammer: banker

RFD: GodSands can be annoying, but he doesn't exactly spam...

Most Over-Rated: Logical-Master

RFD: He's said that he won't debate anything that he thinks he can't win, and he often relies on semantics and other non-serious debate topics; his arguments are usually insufficient

Most Under-Rated:
Geo

RFD: A lot of his beliefs are quacky but he's a great debater

Best Thread: ...um

RFD: It was good times; I laughed a lot and the discussion led to a hilarious DDO chat session :D

Best Debate: Philosophy: Determinism Accurately Describes Reality

RFD: Why the hell not. Twas a great debate.

Best Moment: DATCMOTO leaves

RFD: It just was.

Best would-be-moderator: JBlake

RFD: His DDO Fans contribution is proof; plus most people find him agreeable almost always.

Worst Poster: banker

RFD: His posts are incoherent most of the time.

Best Poster: Kleptin

RFD: He's always insightful and trying to improve the quality of DDO

Most Insightful: Volkov

RFD: The only other choice was RR, and his responses are generally robotic to the point where you know what he'll say before he says it. It's not exactly insightful so much as it's predictable...

Best Debater: Puck

RFD: He's good.

Best user '09: SKIPVOTE

RFD: Because I can't vote for myself, and I believe I deserve it.
President of DDO

Oh wow, I can't believe I missed the nominations. At least I can vote.

By the way, I see that I'm nominated as being most ovverrated. I don't have any particular problems with this (after all, being ovverrated is something that happens to you and rarely it being a fault of yourself), but I do wonder...what exactly am I being seen as o.O?

Volkov

Makes interesting political threads that I am shamefully not aware of as much as I should be (hell, he probably knows about American politics than I do - and I'm an American).

Rookie of the year:
(Note: all votes were counted, even those for 1+ year users)
Freeman
Volkov
wjmelements

He's got some good debates under his belt and tons of contributions to the forum.

Most improved debater:
I-am-a-panda
KRFournier
mongeese

It would seem to be that panda improved the most, given that the other two seem somewhat consistent in their ability (though this isn't saying less of their debating skill).

Biggest spammer:
banker
GodSands

God, God, God, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Evolution is evil, Evolution is ev....

Most overrated:
Logical-Master
Ragnar_Rahl
theSkeptic

It's not much, but in the few debates we had he would always aim for technicalities or semantics rather than tackling the meat of the subject. He's still a great debater though.

Most underrated:
alto2sou
feverish
GeoLaureate8
JBlake
RoyLantham

Alto is definitely most underrated, for the fact that she's very smart and that most people don't know this - the others are pretty well known, so this makes her even more suiting for this vote.

Best would-be-moderator:

Logical-Master
PoeJoe

A cool, calm guy who is really hard to find something about him that would make you mad - having a mod who is likeable is always a plus for the community.

Worst poster:
banker
DATCMOTO
GodSands

Bleh. At least GodSands stays on topic, and I don't know who banker was.

Best poster:
Cody_Franklin
Kleptin
theLwerd
Volkov

Kleptin's posts have always been fun to read, though Lwerd and Volkov come in a close second.

Most insightful:
Ragnar_Rahl
Volkov

Volkov for the mere fact that I suck at politics while he is the opposite. R_R is insightful if I want to know an Objectivist tangent to everything, but ehh...

Best debater:
Puck
RoyLantham
theLwerd

Puck is just great to read and to talk to. Monstrously intelligent and his responses in debates are very concise and to the point.

Best user '09:
Kleptin
Ragnar_Rahl
theLwerd

I honestly can't choose.

If anything I would put you as one of the most underrated mate. You don't seem to have much of a reputation at all, but you deserve one. :)

LM for that matter too... I can't see how he is considered overrated.

And Ragnar too. I skipped that vote and that nomination because in my opinion, if somebody has a reputation on here it's been earned. The community isn't flaky enough to just jump on a bandwagon of thinking someone is better than they are.

Agreed. Skeptic is greatly underrated. I always learn something from reading his debates. However, I gave my vote to RoyLatham, who is spectacular in debates and in debate commenting, but does not participate very often in the forums. If I could, I would vote for both of you.

To be perfectly honest though, I'm surprised no one nominated *me* as most overrated.

Lol, very modest dude, but once again if you've got any sort of reputation as a good poster/debater (which I believe you do), then it's been earned.
