(Inspired by: http://www.newgrounds.com...)

The first ever online debate tournament. The four month postponement of version three. The water123 controversy. The launch of v3. The CWO controversy. The launch of the forums. The rise of the cleaners. Josh. A long list of users getting banned--

The first true year of debate.org has certainly been an interesting one. With this year nearing an end, I present to you the 2008 Debate.org Awards.

This is how it will work.
1) November 26 - Nomination thread. Users will nominate users they wish to win.
2) December 16 - Voting thread. The top two to four nominated users will be posted (by me), and users will then vote based off this new list.
3) December 25 - Award thread. The winners are announced for every category. Happy Christmas!

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 rational. Why did you vote for this user?
3) Please don't spam this thread; leave discussion to a minimum.
4) No nominating yourself. Votes for yourself will not be counted.
5) Please don't joke vote. Be serious; I should not distinguishing "real" votes and "fake" votes.

And the categories are...

Funniest user: What user has made visiting debate.org a fun-filled pleasure?

We miss you: Name a user that has since left, that you miss having around.

Best poster: Who do you think makes the best posts on these forums?

Rookie of the year: Choose a relatively new member (joined after the Summer) that you admire.

Most improved: Who has most improved their debating skills in 2008?

Best would-be mod: If debate.org community were to have a mod, who would you like him/her to be?

Best debater: Who's debating skills have made you stand in awe?

Worst user '08: Who has been the worst user overall this year?

Best user '08: Who has been he best user overall this year?

Let me redo mine.

Funniest user: What user has made visiting debate.org a fun-filled pleasure?

It's hard to get me to really laugh out loud through using conventional methods, thus I typically laugh when someone expresses an ironic level of stupidity: HoosierPapi.

We miss you: Name a user that has since left, that you miss having around.

Yraelz. Though beem0r is starting to fill that slot too.

Best poster: Who do you think makes the best posts on these forums?

askbob/scissorshands, since he helped me out with a few computer issues.

Rookie of the year: Choose a relatively new member (joined after the Summer) that you admire.

Joshand for being a dumb cry baby troll. Nuff said.

Best user '08: Who has been he best user overall this year?

Even when you were you, I hadn't heard of you till I debated someone ABOUT you.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Funniest user: What user has made visiting debate.org a fun-filled pleasure?

Brian. It's a no brainer. I laughed hysterically reading most all of his debates including the two he debated against myself reguarding the rude man being gay porn and the misleading theme park advertisements being misleading because theme parks did not include beer and strippers.

We miss you: Name a user that has since left, that you miss having around.

Brittwaller, we had some good chats about some of the lesser users of this site.

Best poster: Who do you think makes the best posts on these forums?
Its between HandsOff and Ragnar for me.

Rookie of the year: Choose a relatively new member (joined after the Summer) that you admire.

I must say Lightkeeper has done an excellent job.

Most improved: Who has most improved their debating skills in 2008?

So many users, this is a very hard decision for me. I'd have to go with Robert Santurri.

Best would-be mod: If debate.org community were to have a mod, who would you like him/her to be?

Haha for me this is definetly PoeJoe.


Best debater: Who's debating skills have made you stand in awe?

Again it almost seems unfair to choose just one, however if I must come to choosing I'd say Logic Master.


Worst user '08: Who has been the worst user overall this year?

Haha, I would have to say joshandr30, he certainly has caused a decent amount of trouble.

Best user '08: Who has been he best user overall this year?

I'm going to have to go with Nate. What can I say, he spoke to us and interacted with the users. To me, feedback is essential to have a healthy site.
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos
