I have no idea whether this has been tried before, and I know we have a hall of fame, but stick with me.

So right now DDO is kind of going through a Renaissance period of art and performance, and I think there should be some sort of biannual (or even triannual) award base for the shows, stories, or other things that people do on here to be artistic. So not exactly the oscars, but look at how the O fits with the D's!

Okay I'm done.

Um, so anyway, is this a good idea, or am I in over my head? I think if this happens, that people who have an entry in one of the categories should not be involved in the voting process. This would be entirely poll based.

Mostly arbitrary really, but hey! It's fun! Why not?

But seriously though, thoughts? Concerns? Questions? Constipations? Vexations? Moral obligations?

It makes sense. I like it, but not all DDOers own a camera and a mic.

Would you run this as like a real Oscars, where you have the "Academy" choose the winners, instead of letting everyone on DDO vote? In other words, would you have a committee to decide winners?

Well, we don't have to do it that way. I'm saying like for all of the creative things here, we take polls for a winner of a category, and then the person running it will either announce it by video or by a forum topic. Probably both really. Acception speeches can be given in whatever way the acceptor wants to give them.

Probably an Academy. That seems like the best way. The only problem I see is having people in that committee who are skilled in the areas chosen (to make them experts on here) but aren't doing anything in that category to make a biased vote.

I know that, but people like me can't do half of those things just because we don't have the technology for it.

In seriousness, this doesn't have to start at any particular time. We can just have the idea, and if enough stuff comes up, it can happen.

Oh I see, you're talking about equal opportunity.

I mean, I understand that, but it doesn't mean that we shouldn't have DDOscars.

I self-nominate to join the Academy. You should get a group of maybe 9 people to be the committee (not including yourself b/c you shouldn't participate if you want to receive an award for your fanfic.)

DDOscars for the following topics should suffice-

Fanfic
Show (once there are enough)
Troll debater
Entertainment debater (singing debate, rap battle, cubing debate, etc)

Yeah, I think if we get enough support it can happen. I guess the major drawback is a lack of repetitively active users who don't do one of the things that would be nominated,

I have a bunch of scars. I am sure to win this. So what do we do, post a video showing all of our scars?
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

Sure, and I guess will have to include that one rap battle Larz had, since apparently he had one of the best on his site. Then someone will have to sort through Mikal'sand SONOFGOD's :P

As for Larz and Mikal, I'd be open to rap battling them at some point if this award becomes official. Just to clarify, I'd need to beat those two before earning the crown as best member at rap battles?
