Who will be first, who has a question for Dr. Steve O.L.D.

Reason for Nomination:
I feel this thread should be considered for a Best of Subsim on several levels. First, it is the good-natured type of stuff that encourages participation by many members. Second, it gives our Sailor Steve a real chance to shine and show his wit. Which he does, quite well and consistently! And that leads to the third reason I nominate this thread--it is funny and gives me something to look forward to each day. I've gotten a few guys at my job hooked on this thread and they don't know a submarine from a bed spring. The year is still young but I think this thread could be in the running come autumn.

Ask the Next Person a Question thread

________________________________________

Reason for Nomination:
Feuer Frei's thread is a simple game in the old fashioned SubSim style. That is, a load of fun in indefinite duration, but one that requires the player to think quickly in answering, let the next answer fall to someone else or be repeated. This is the type of community bonding thread that keeps the members smiling even after a hard day at work, home or school and is an example to all of what is good about the forum.

I think I found my new home thread
by frau kaleun

Reason for Nomination:
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=202898

A warm and moving topic from a member of our community on a topic that doesn't contain any controversial content but more on life's trials and tribulations and how perseverance and tolerance can actually make it all worthwhile in the end.

2013 Subsim Fantasy Football Reports thread
Location: http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=207006

Reason for Nomination:

The "reports" themselves are vastly entertaining, and help create interest among both the community and the players. Given that this has become an annual "tradition" for Subsim, it is noteworthy that Gut Wrench has been willing to donate quite a few late hours to the role of "Sports Reporter" - especially since the reports are posted after every Monday Night game.

The humor, wit and camaraderie that is shared and created by the thread makes it noteworthy and well worth a look at for "thread of the year".

Yes - other threads may get more posts or more people posting - but few run as long and stay relevant (and on topic in GT!). Some threads may burn brighter, others hotter - but few last the ~4 months of life that the Subsim FF reports does. What is more - it does it not just once - but every year! How many other posts nominated for "POTY" can claim that?

Voting for the Frau: the thread showed the subsim community at its best with a lot of people contributing in a constructive, friendly, and humorous manner. The thread had DIY hints, cooking tips, domestic drama, a great deal of wit, and, most importantly, ... kittens! (I'm on Team Carrot, myself)...

See? With a little care any thread in GT can be made into a hot-button topic.

I have a dream of the day a thread in GT won't include the "O" word

The real flame war will be over whether it's Obama or Bush who's to blame for them jumping up on the kitchen counters.

Sure, blame the poor single mother who slaves all day to put kibble in their bowls and squeaky mice in their basket.
