    We have had something similar in the past and there are certain members who coordinate it. So I expect it will return at some point. So, yes, we have had this kind if event before.

      Last time a thread like this came up, Alex and I were planning on running it. That was several months ago and he said we should wait until Summer-ish, I'm guessing June. I'll ask him if he still wants to do it.

          Yes, we've had this ever since BuffyWorld, actually. It's called the Superlatives, I believe. Has things like Biggest _____ Fan and, like you said, Best Thread Started, Most Helpful, etc. Also gives awards to people who make exceptional fanart and Virtual Seasons for fanfiction. It's really fun!

            Yes I suppose it is time to be getting Superlatives kicked off. The forum has been kicking the last little while so it would be an appropriate time to start it! I shall start work on that within the week.

                      I don't think so. That would need a change in the forum software and I doubt that's easily achieved. You can always mention it in your signature though.

                      I wouldn't necessarily get my hopes up too high for the awards though, the last 2 times members tried to kick it off, there was just not enough interest on the board to justify the huge amount of time that goes into the awards and in the end they never came to pass.

                        Can a mod make an official poll? (i.e sticky) see if there is enough intrest?

                          We have a couple of awards ceremonies each year. The member awards is called the Superlatives and was first hosted in December 2005 by Heather and myself. Superlatives was held every six months until we decided that once a year was enough.

                          There are also a yearly ceremony for best television/jossverse characters, scenes, and actors. This was last run by Pandora's Box, but Digital Leonardo and Magnetic Duty have run it as well.

                          At this time, that's not an option. We looked into doing that a couple months ago for another event.

                          Anyway, Magnetic Duty has dibs on coordinating the Superlatives this year. I'm going to move this thread into the miscellaneous section for any further discussion or volunteering. I'm looking forward to see what comes!

                            Oh really, I had no idea, it was probably before I join Buffyforums. As far as I'm concerned I'm up for a new round of "Chosen", "Champion" and "Zeppo" awards 2009, from October to December probably, like last year.

                            About The Superlatives, that would be great, I think the "too many categories" factor stopped it the last time, so maybe with less categories...But I'm really excited about it!

                              I think we should focus more on the people of the board, as i haven't been on that long but you can tell its a really close community and so many people are helpful, funny, ect i think they deserve more recognition.

                                  I think, since we pretty much agree on doing a Superlative Ceremony, we should open a new thread to decide the categories. Unless the organisers of the ceremony want to pick the categories themselves?...
