Hey guys! Recently my school did a thing called "End of the Year Superlatives." There were certain categories such as "Best Dressed", "Best Hair", "Smartest Students", "Most Likely to Succeed in Life", "Most Athletic", etc. There were 15 categories all together, and students voted for one person for each category. I won two categories, "Most Likely to become President" and "Most Likely to Succeed in Life." I'm sure most schools do something similar to this.

Now I want to do the same thing but on the Atlas Forum. I came up with 8 categories. You guys have to choose up to five people (at least one) for each category. You guys will have three days to vote. After that, I will choose the three most frequently suggested users for each category, and I'll start the official thread. You guys will vote for one of the three on each category, and you guys will have 5 days to do so. I will then determine the winner for each category. You can skip a category if you want to if you truly believe that no poster deserves that title.

Here are the categories:

Best Poster

Worst Poster

Funniest Poster

Most Likely to Become President

Best Republican Poster

Best Democratic Poster

Kindest Poster

Worst Political Views


Feel free to PM me by tomorrow night if you want me to add any more categories.


These are the people who I choose for each category:

Best Poster
Bacon King
CrabCake
King
Lief
Clarko95

Worst Poster
CountryClassSF
DeadPrez

Funniest Poster
King
JoeRepublic

Most Likely to Become President

I'm honored to be considered "best Republican", but that reward goes to Goldwater methinks.

You're looking at my votes.

Now you should vote for up to five posters for each category, like I did.

I don't go on here a lot anymore, so I have missed a bit of your recent postings. I'll still keep you on the list just because I can Tongue

I totally forgot about Windjammer. I should add him.

Who was the unlucky student at your school who got stuck with the "Most Likely to Fail at Life"?  Just curious.

Since I have absolutely nothing better to do during finals week - the 53 posters with at least 3 posts in Comedy Goldmine since 1/1/15. Seriously hope I counted right amidst all the hullabaloo discussions. Attempted to give credit for back-to-back funny posts in the same quote but not for when a whole thread is posted.
T_host tied Bushie until that Supercuts nonsense. He deserves something. Vox and Indy probably deserve noms in that category too. This is no exact science since there's just a ton of absurdity in that thread.
OC has to get in on a category of course.

Maybe one for most missed? Opebo, Libertas, Phil, jmfcst, tmth
Best Visitor? Sam Spade, Mark Graham, PFAdmin
I know retro already ran a favorite mod thing, but that's an obvious category.
Most Likely to Be Too Young to Have An Account? (Not naming names though Tongue)
Most Approved of Ban: CJK, Rockingham. I'll have to go through that thread for more
Also, I don't think it needed to be said, but best selfie absolutely HAS to be one. That is the center of the forum community.
Best Timeline or Map Series could be an option. I don't venture in there as much as I should though.

I've also saved all my personal favorite posts of the year in a Word document that I intend to whittle down at year's end and share. That's more of an individual post than poster award.

(If there's any way to save space below the list with a spoiler alert or something, let me know)

I used to run an annual Atlas Forum awards thing on here years ago. Looks like this is basically the same thing.
