Prizes
Now, after talking with one of the Administrators it's been decided that there may be a prize system for this awards show. Administator RyanN sent be a private message on behalf of Joggle to ask if I would be interested in his support in reforming the award election system and... awarding real prizes. He came up with idea of an awards page, award crests and a monetary reward of $1000. I'm not too sure if I can relay the full contents of the private message at the current time but if you wish to see it ask me when I can. Anyway, I'm sure many of you are thinking as to why he never consulted the site as an entity and why only ask me. Well, I thought about that and didn't want to respond alone. I forwarded the message to PoeJoe, JBlake and wamba. I did this not because of any personal preference to these users but because of their history with DDO. PoeJoe is the creator of this very awards system. Some of you may remember his original award threads back in 2008 and 2009. I felt the need to consult JBlake and Askbob because of their past efforts to support this site - the unofficial fan site DDOfans(which as we speak may be restarted or relocated here to DDO, 100% satire free!). PoeJoe administrated DDO fans, JBlake payed for the server and Askbob moderated the wiki.

Now, the three, to my knowledge, are talking to the moderators in their respective private messages about the system. Due to how recently I received his private message(almost a fortnight) the theorised system probably won't we added this year. If anyone has any ideas please share them here, I'm sure the administrators will review this thread. If you have any passionate views you may contact one of the administrators. If you have anything to tell me, my message window is always public.

Concerning the three esteemed awards - the ones I've advised the moderators to pay for are the following awards:
> Rookie of the year
> Best poster
> Best Debater

I'm sure you won't have any objections but please share your opinions.

Also, one more thing, if the prizes do get awarded for this annual season best debater would have to go to theLwerd. This wouldn't be a democratic selection from our number but it's quite fair, after all she has achieved:

an 100% percentile,
303 wins,
a 97% win percentile,
a great debate reception,

Again, I'm sure you won't have any objections.

It seems like the absolute most obvious of all awards would be for best debater, why do you not have that on the list?

Well you see... I think I must have highlight deleted it when I posted the nominations thread. I noticed abit too late... and only about 3 of the voters offically voted for a best debater by their own merits. I thought it would be abit unfair to include it. If would have been:

a) Lwerd
b) RoyLantham

Two nominations each. There is also another reason but I'm going to withold that. (post #2 of this thread is the reason)

It wasn't the double accounting that pissed people off, it was the blatant cheating in multiple mafia games. When 25 people put in days of activity and thousands of posts and analysis playing a game only to find out that someone cheated, doesn't make them happy. It's the equivalent of vote bombing 25 different debates.

he played at least 5 or 6 games and cheated in each one.

25 * 6 = vote bombing 150 debates.

$1000 to the winner of the award? Is this seriously being considered?

I don't think monetary prizes should be delivered by public vote alone. Seriosuly, if people are willing to vote-bomb over win percentages, people will most definitely try to create new accounts/bribe current accounts/create a voting bloc to secure prize money.

Once you said that, it just had to be done: http://objection.mrdictionary.net...

And people wondered why I thought vote-bombing would be such an issue.

All those "credentials" are also rather repetitive, and only have to do with her spot on the leaderboard...

It would have happened sooner, but I usually don't use DDO around Christmas.

DDO has gotten so clubby and childish I wonder if it would be good to have another site actually devoted to debate. People should be free to have fun in any harmless way they choose, but if, say, a chess cub discovers that they only spend 10% of their time playing chess it should make one wonder.

I'd be very sad if I saw that the site had been divided into two. The debate side would not be active enough to maintain attention, and the forum would be no different then any other forum.
