In the word of pokedream today there is not quite as much status differentiation as there once was, nor are there as many happenings. But awards MUST still be distributed, especially given that 2012 is PD's year of rebirth. As such we shall only hand out the VERY MOST IMPORTANT awards.
POSTER OF THE YEAR: Dogar the Brave
- Literally brought PD back to life. Harassed Mewtwo to give me admin powers, then cleaned out the bot situation, spared some life back in Misc. and soon enough the posters came flooding back. The leading charge behind most of the period of high activity in 2012 and a general provocateur. This is a truly momentous occasion: Dogar's first return to the seat of highest glory since 2005, and the first time in recorded history God has not won or shared this award.
RUNNER-UP POSTER OF THE YEAR: God
- This year came close to foreclosing God on BOTH the most prestigious awards. For the first half on 2012, this spot was hotly contested between Hicky and Rayne; but Hicky's activity slowed down going into the summer, and Rayne's has been weak since starting college, while God has still stayed fairly consistently active. This is a year of historic award surprises, but thanks of Rayne and Hicky DROPPING THE BALL, not TOO surprising.
MOST IMPROVED OF THE YEAR: Buckwheat
- The idea of a Buckwheat return was on no one's radar, of the sub par newbs of 2007 -- of whom there were many -- he was pretty inconspicuous. Although he still bitched a lot. However, he made a whirl wind return, slowly becoming a legitimately valued member of the PD community. Who'd have guessed!?
THREAD OF THE YEAR: PMS Murder Investigation Reopened! by Qoorl
- I should get around to archiving this
