Icon1 *** Nominations for Best of SUBSIM 2016 ***

Welcome to the nomination thread for the Best of Subsim 2016. 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 2016) 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 2015 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 2016--let's find that thread we call Thread of the Year. Cannot be a previous winner.

Post of the Year - There are 600 new posts every day at Subsim. That's over 275,000 this year. Of those, one will be Post of the Year 2016. 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.

Avatar/Signature of the Year - Very simple: if you see a signature or avatar 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

Subsim Facebook Poster of the Year - Many Subsim members make great posts of screenshots, game reports, memes, and other naval content. Who is the overall standout of the year?

Subsim Facebook Post of the Year - Of all the posts and memes, which one would you say is the most memorable?

NEW! Subsim Video of the Year - The Subsimmer who made a video and we posted it or linked to it.

Please check the proper format guidelines in the next post.

There may be additional categories that open for nominations in Dec 2016.


Thanks again for your help!

Neal,
SUBSIM

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 2016.

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 15, 2016

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.


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

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

Good hunting!
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:


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

Quote:
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.
Reason: I think a lot of people here share an interest in Model Railroading. The topic is popular and has received 2700+ replies.

Default Sloops and ketches and clippers! oh my!

A nomination Category: Thread of the year-since it can't be won by previous winners; MEMBER: CaptainRamius: 'Beautiful Sailing Ships' Thread and link: http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=223068

Who else thinks that sailing ships are beautiful, even when compared to today's yachts?
Reason: That thread, eminently naval in subject matter really brought a lot of guys outta the cyber-woodwork!!! We've got a lot of sailboat fanatics! Besides 'usual suspects': Jimbuna, Sailor Steve, Gargamel, AVGWarhawk, Catfish, nikimcbee & myself; There's Bertieck476 patrolling the Channel in an 1897 restored 40' oyster dredger! (best pics imho ) just OUTSTANDING! The variety of ships was astounding! @ ADMIN:

Threads and posts nominated should have begun in 2016.
The last two thread winners weren't started in the year they won-precedent-wise; This thread only started a month before the years' end.

Quote:
Someone initiates a debate and coincidentally, those who disagree always bring up other and non-related problems, instead of talking about the actual topic.
Why?
How is this helping anyone, how does that solve problems?

This is just something that I don't understand about people since... forever.
They do it all the time.
"Hey, I think you always put too much salt on the pasta."
"OH YEAH? WELL LAST YEAR YOU PUT TOO MUCH PEPPER ONTO SOMETHING TOO!"
"... "
Funny and pretty insightful, love it when people examine forum social patterns like this.

Actually Nipplespanner's post quailfies for the most sobering post of the year
