Lets do it! Should we print up certificates and send them out?

I'm not really into it. But, if you guys want to start a vote for a few categories, please do. I'm sure by the end of the season you'll know who should be nominated, so you won't need an administrator or moderator to decide. Lets keep it fun and unofficial. :)

I think this would be a big part of SF, and if Mike does not like the idea, and does not want to be involved.......we should not do it.

The problem with these types of things, is it becomes a popularity contest, and sometimes people feel slighted when they dont get nominated or win something they felt they should, and that can create animosity and bad vibes on the site, and we dont want that at all. As long as its purely in fun, and nobody takes it w/ any real conscience about what there presence on SF means in relation to winning or not winning, thats the main goal.

Wow!.....Are we dealing with adults? I am a big part of a Bengals site that does this, and I was not nominated for one award.......and I loved it. I thought it was great watching who the members chose, and the threads that followed. I dont remember anyone whining or crying (don't tell me Bengals fans are tougher than us). If anything it was great, and I could tell the members look forward to it every season.

Yeah we are.. but some people just feel slighted alot easier than others, so, ya know ;)

I think it could be fun, but personally, and I think Mike agrees, we dont want the responsibility of picking the nominees.. we can leave that up to the members to pick a couple nominees for each category,then hold votes via polls. Alot of the categories are kinda obvious now, but as we get more members, that will make it more challenging.

Yeah I'm not for hyping it up too much, but if we just post it all the way and keep winnings down to maybe a special post with some cool fonts then it keeps the message as just a way to say "thanks" but without hurting feelings. Keep categories to a minimum, no best supporting poster in a daytime thread categories please. Here are my suggestions...

Time frame: opens at season start week 1, closes on Sunday before SuperBowl Offseason is offseason work on getting over not winning or whatever.

Open to all members, but voting is doen in a week time frame. Ballots done on Championship Monday.

Categories:
+Most Informative Member (ie most up to date poster)
+Funniest Member (most likely to crack a joke for every post)
+Nicest Member (who is the PR member of SF?)
-Favorite Moderator (we know this, so is it necessary? Tons of Respect though BRC)
+Favorite Non-Steelers Member (I actually like this category a lot)
-Favorite Female Member (kinda vague, why this category? why not guys?)
+Favorite Ohio Member (I'd go for favorite new member(rookie-1st year member))
+Most Knowledgable (About Steelers History) Member (combine with NFL knowledge)
-Most Knowledgable (About the NFL) Member (see above)
-Best Signature Creator (see Mod category, Might add later thogh, T.O.R.T. BB2W)
+Best Signature (more useful than above so it stays)
-Best Use of Avatars (don't understand, couldn't care)
+Superthread Poster (who gets the members typing is a great category)
+Biggest Smack-Talker (Blast Furnace Championship should always be defended)
-Biggest Post W%@$ (we don't want it anyway so lose this category)

I'm at nine so to make an even ten lets throw in: SF achievement award. This should be about making the site better so lets give one to those who make good ideas better by implementing new software(or whatever two hamsters in a wheel keep this site running), t-shirt ideas, get togethers, etc.

Procedure: If unofficial, I don't know if mod can set up poll threads on Champ Mon to end in a week, then we vote and a simple cool font post is then made by mod and we all clap and cheer and get on with the offseason. If not then one of us do it.

Well its a start. So help fine tune it.

What?.....starting voting at week 1......that is stupid!!! There is no suspense. You only get one vote! how could you determine who wins in week 1,2,3 or 8 for that matter. It has to be done at the end of the year. For the award you must consider what has happend throughout the season. We are all stupider having read that post.
