TUF and I have worked hard to put this program together. If it works, it would be a great addition to DDO and a great vehicle for member appreciation.

Premise

Members will nominate and vote on debates that they believe should be honored. The three highest vote-getting debaters, debates, and voters will receive recognition similar to that of the Hall of Fame.

Restrictions and Rules

One important thing to mention is that awards would be announced the month after. For example, voting for the July awards would occur August first through fifth, and the winners would be announced on the sixth.

The only restrictions on nominations would be:

1. That the debates must have finished during the month for which the awards are being presented (i.e. to receive a July award it must have finished in July of that year)
2. That the debaters must have participated in at least one debate during the month in question
3. That the voters must have voted on at least one debate during the month in question

Instructions

This thread is for December. Please vote for three debates (include links), three voters (include link to a good vote they cast), and three debaters. You are not required to vote in all categories, nor are you required to vote for the maximum three in each category. A sample ballot might look like this:

-------

Debate:

Debate A: link
Debate B: link
Debate C: link

Voter:

Voter A: link
Voter B: link
Voter C: link

Debater:

Debater A
Debater B
Debater C

------

Winners will be announced in a stickied tab, for all to see. Thanks, and good luck!

I suggest that you include a link to the users' profile pages when you list the candidates.

I don't know that I've had a debate in the month of december at all, and I don't think anything I've done merits a nomination for this. I appreciate the mention, though.

Thanks for helping with this idea Bsh1 (and thanks to airmax for allowing us to post it here, and agreeing to help with idolizing the winners).

Honestly noob sniping isn't that hard. Not that I mean to call Mikal out. Even the one debate he has lost isn't impressive.

You got to give him props, though. He's better at it than me.

I do agree he does take on some lesser opponents, but some of his arguments (against more experienced members) were pretty good.

The only "more experienced debater" that he's debated against has been Donald.Keller.

And he won, didn't he?
