Default *** Nominations for Best of SUBSIM 2014 ***

Welcome to the nomination thread for the Best of Subsim 2014. I thank you for your time and assistance in recognizing the outstanding members of our community.

You can help us decide upon who should receive awards for being our best in the following categories:

Best Poster of the Year - So, have you noticed someone who posts regularly in the forums, he or she is friendly, helpful, interesting, and you enjoy reading what they have to say? Nominate her/him here.

Midshipman of the Year - Which new member (joined in 2013) has been the friendliest/helpful/interesting. Keep your eyes peeled for new guys who join Subsim, share laughs and are good and easy to get along with. Being a new guy ain't easy. Nominees to this category must have a join date of Dec 2012 and later.

Thread of the Year - There are 50~100 new threads every day at Subsim. Some are fluff, some are newsy, some are great points of interest that everyone seems to enjoy. Some threads spawn not only great posts, but memorable discussions that last for weeks and months. Of all the threads started in 2013--let's find that thread we call Thread of the Year. Cannot be a previous winner.

Post of the Year - There are 750 new posts every day at Subsim. That's over 275,000 this year. Of those, one will be Post of the Year 2013. Which one, that's up to you to decide. Cannot be a previous winner.

Funniest Post of the Year - Wit and humor is never in shortage here at SUBSIM. Who's the wittiest and funniest? No, seriously, who?

Mod/Modder of the Year - Let's give it up for the clever fellows who pioneer improvements and fixes to our sub games. For this category, you want to nominate someone who has created a really helpful and popular mod. Also consider how he interacts with the community--is he polite, supportive, and helpful? Does he respond to queries?

Most Helpful Member of the Year - To consider someone for this award, you should feel he is not only friendly and interesting, as is the criteria for the Poster of the Year award, but helpful in evident ways. Such as, this nominee posts links to help solve questions other members have, he supplies answers to questions, and he is civil and doesn't batter people who disagree with him.

Signature of the Year - Very simple: if you see a signature you feel is really interesting, clever, funny, etc., post it here. Sigs should be within the rules pertaining to size. http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/faq....ure_image_faqs

There will additional categories that open for nominations in Dec 2014.

**********************

Guidelines
Nominees have to be active members at the time of nomination.
You cannot nominate yourself (duh).
Threads and posts nominated should have begun in 2014.

Format - VERY IMPORTANT!
When you post a nomination, you must include:
The category you are nominating for (Post of the Year, Modder of the Year, etc.)
The name of the nominee (correctly spelled).
The contents of his post or thread in QUOTES. Don't simply say, "He said this" and a link, include at least part of his post.
A link to the post or thread. For sigs, post the image.
Include your reason for the nomination, why you think it deserves an award.


Voting for BOS categories Dec 24, 2014

Throughout this year, if you come across a post or thread that you think is really noteworthy, post a link, the quote, and your argument. This way we can summarize the whole year easily come this December.

Note: Don't post something every day/week, make sure you feel sure that when you post, it will be a worthy candidate for Best Poster, Best Thread, Most Helpful Member, etc. I am not trying to dissuade you from posting what you think is a good candidate, but we don't want 300 nominations for each category. If we end the year with 25~40 each, that would be best.

**********************

Finally, a couple quick points -

We may not all agree on everything that will come up throughout this process, but it does go much more smoothly if we can get along and agree to disagree at times.

Also, please keep this particular forum on-topic at all times, so it's easier to sort through down the road.

Thanks again for your help!

Neal,
SUBSIM

EXAMPLE

Here is an example of the proper format for making a nomination. Let's say I want to nominate this thread for thread of the year, I would post it this way:


Thread of the year
OP: August
Thread: The Model Railroading thread http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=198810

Quote:
I've been getting back into model railroading in the past few months and i'm finding it very relaxing after a hard days work. It started with a 20 buck box of ho scale engines and freight cars and has grown into the makings of a fairly decent layout. I still have lots of work to do on it, the most important right now to get it insulated and finished before it gets too cold and drives me back to the warmth of a painting and detailing bench set up near the basement wood stove like last year.

The time period is the 1970's and the Railroad is Maine Central in their heyday.
Reason: I think a lot of people here share an interest in Model Railroading. The topic is popular and has received 2700+ replies.

For mod/modder of the year I nominate TheGeoff. This for his outstanding work on his Sub Commander sim. This is a labour of love being carried out single-handedly and it has come on leaps and bounds in a short space of time. TheGeoff is always grateful of any feedback and he responds promptly and politely and accepts praise or criticism with equal good grace and humour.

I nominate for best thread of the year, "This date in history"

http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=208340

started by: Aktungbby (what kind of name is that lol)

even though it was started: 10-14-2013, 04:46 PM
it is still going and is very interesting, especially some the comments that add to the subject of what happened that day.

Makes my day to think of things I would not have normally thought of

Couldn't agree more...a lot more to it than the usual copy and paste.

I'll second the above nomination.

Hi,

Modder of the year

I nominate vdr1981- for "The Wolves of Steel" mega mod - making SH5 playable in a very easy install!

Very helpful and interactive, but also the reasoning behind starting the mod -

"It's been very hard for me to witnessing everyday frustrations of new SH5 captains and to read the same threads month after month, year after year, over and over again...I hope something like this will make "life" a bit easier for newcomers or for anyone else who doesn't have much free time to spent countless hours improving and searching for stable modlist. "

I take the liberty of nominating Jimbuna for Most Helpful Member of the Year

Along with the dependable Sailor Steve, Jim has been the most active moderator and spam controller for several years. It's amazing the amount of work this man does behind the scenes. And he never seeks credit. He does it for the joy and support of the community. He is part of the group who set up the York Subsim Meet this summer, and has been to several of the previous meets. On top of that, he always has something nice to say when he posts, even in discussions about heated topics!

Most helpful member of the year? He's got my vote!
