Welcome!
This year has been a tumultuous one for FBTB with many shake-ups, break-ups and make-ups. Our award ceremony is definitely exciting as we have a few dark horse winners, so let's get started!

And your winners are...

Voice of Reason
This category was tough, as it encompassed who made the most logical and passionate arguments on the forums this year. While the competition was fierce (our winner won with exactly one more vote than the second place contestant), this year's Voice of Reason is...

CountBlockula!
Contestant Factoid: CountBlockula fluently speaks eighteen languages, is persuasive in seventeen of them and knows the words for 'I'm going to drain you of your bodily fluids' in a whopping 34 separate languages!


Most Improved Member
Our Most Improved Member was a member who spent the last year perfecting their art of forum posting until they became a valuable staple of the forums. I'm sure no-one will be disappointed when I announce this year's Most Improved Member as none other than...

EnchantedKnight56!
Contestant Factoid: EnchantedKnight56's talents include singing, tap dancing, interpretive ballet and an encyclopedic knowledge of the 1973 New York Knicks!


Best New Member (Registered in '08)
The best new '08 member was another category which proved to be almost too close to call. Several great '08's were nominated and voted for, but at the end of the day, one name reigned surpreme... FBTB's most Golden Delicious member...

Lego Apple!
Contestant Factoid: Lego Apple is actually more of a Lego Pomegranate, but pretends to be an apple due to our collective inability to spell the word pomegranate correctly on our first try!


Bad Enough Dude To Save The President
Ah, the Bad Enough Dude To Save The President award. But who is this year's Bad Enough Dude To Save The President, and is that Bad Enough Dude quite possibly a Dudette? No. Instead it's...

RebelRock!
Contestant Factoid: RebelRock, or 'Rocko', is East Philadelphia born and raised, and spent a large portion of his childhood on the playground before moving in with his Aunt and Uncle in Bel Air.


Least Hated MOD
No lie, this category was a virtual slaughter with one name raking in a wide majority of the votes! I guess we'll have to change his title, since he can no longer plausibly hate everyone...

DonSolo
Contestant Factoid: DonSolo's name is neither Don nor Solo; instead, he is the pride of south-central Lubbock, Texas, one Mr. Emile Krakowskiwitz!


Most Attractive Member
I guess this was sorta a competition in the same way that me squirting you with a squirt gun is a rain storm. Disbelieving teens across the country flocked to vote for this winner, who provided multiple pictures of herself and proved once and for all that there's at least one girl on the forums that guys can pretend to be internet dating while maintaining a desperately lonely existence!

Darkie!
Contestant Factoid: Darkie isn't actually a girl, but is instead a very, very attractive man who resembles (and biologically is) a girl.


The High School Popularity Award
Ah, High School. An age of innocence... happiness... uncomfortable locker room nudity... In the end, only one contestant can be inexplicably popular and sort of a jerk, and that contestant is...

DonSolo!
Contestant Factoid: DonSolo only won this award because he threatened to stuff everyone in garbage cans and roll them down the steps of the Homecoming Dance if they didn't vote for him!


Thread of the Year (BCS)
The BCS Thread of the Year is exciting in that it's the first of three ties this year! Yes, three ties! And I'm not talking about the kind that you bought your dad at Christmas because they were three for one! Our winning threads were...

Gentleman Austin's Old-Time Doodletorium!
Bothan Battle Destiny X -- Elite Space Destiny Fight Supreme!
Contestant Factoid: I promise I didn't rig that outcome, I swear. I think Bothans just have short memories.


Thread of the Year (Anywhere Else)
Love it or hate it, our Thread of the Year (Anywhere Else) was a polarizing little shenanigan which proved that Ryan is grossly incompetent to defend himself in court and that Xzibit jokes are always funny!

The Trial of Don Solo!
Contestant Factoid: The actual trial took place in scenic Mexico on a sun-drenched beach and was actually just a race to see who could coat Collin's back with sunscreen the fastest!


Jedi Mind Trick Award
'These are not the droids you're looking for, but this is the argument you're going to passionately make without knowing exactly why!' Our winner here was silver-tongued and persuasive, making others inexplicably see his way! Congratulations...

TheJudeAbides!
Contestant Factoid: This, like, unchecked aggression... man... will not, like, stand. You know?


Yoda's 'Calm Your Mind, I Will' Award
If someone got the population all riled up, who calmed 'em back down again? Whose soothing voice spoke to you in the dead of night? When there's something strange in the neighborhood, who did you all call?

DonSolo!
Contestant Factoid: This marks the third award Don has won, paradoxically including 'Most Liked MOD', 'Unpleasant and Popular' and 'Calm and Reasonable'. Don't ask me, I don't know either.


Jawa Dealer
This started off as a competition and quickly ended up not being one. I guess when the staff makes a position for you to accommodate your mad skills you're a shoe-in for the related award...

copyright!
Contestant Factoid: Copyrightę is actually copyrighted to Feinstein, Feinstein and Brooks of NYC, and we're no longer legally allowed to mention his name in our posts for fear of a lawsuit! Congratulations, []!


Kessel Spice (a.k.a. The Sauntering Bantha Award)
Another tie? Oh, you shouldn't have, really. Especially in this category which asked, Who made your stay at FBTB all the more enjoyable? Your two winners...

The Master
Austin
Contestant Factoid: This was actually fated to be, as The Master actually IS The Master and Austin is the eleventh Doctor!


Best Builder (MOCs)
Finally, the two most prestigious categories of the award show. This first one is the equivalent of a 'Best Picture' Oscar, but with tiny plastic toys instead. Your winner, and Builder of the Year, is...

RebelRock!
Contestant Factoid: The gown Rocko is wearing tonight was designed by Dolce and Gabanna and is designed to accentuate his sensual hips and his rippling, hairy chest!


Best Builder (Mini-Figs)
Remember how I said there were three ties? Here's our last tie, and your two Mini-Fig Builders of the Year! Your winners are...

Kaminoan
Morgan19
Contestant Factoid: These two would love to be here to pick up their awards, but are currently in a tense Mexican legal battle over the rights to call themselves the one true Mini-Fig Builder of the Year!

Thank you again to all our contestants, participants and voters! We'll see you next year for the FBTB Forums Bothan Spirit Awards!


Special Thanks:
- Collin's Mom
- The 'Category Committee' who helped come up with our awards
- The number 5
- Viewers like you!

Hey, a decent amount of people have voted, but I know there's more of you out there. Send in them votes; I've extended the deadline even further to accommodate you slacker types!

Update 1/18/09 -- Cancelled?

Quite possibly. So far we've received <10 votes total, and of those, only one has voted for someone in every category. I'll accept PMs today, but if nobody is going to vote, there's no reason to pretend like we can give out awards.

This doesn't happen to be an "Austin wins it all by default" sort of situation, does it? Wink

I never thought that was so much a "situation" as it is a "fact of life." Very Happy

I just spent 30 minutes filling out the form, clicked "Send" and got logged out. Evil or Very Mad I'm now getting logged out about every 4 minutes. Confused I have to be up at 6am for work so I'm quiting this. If voting is still open tomorrow, I'll try again. Confused

Now Master, that's just silly. Go into Word (or note pad), copy/paste that voting list, fill it out, and save it, so if you get logged out again, it won't mean you'll have to fill it out again.

Voted. Smile

All you have to do is click 'keep me logged in', and if you DON'T want to be kept logged in, log off, log on again WITHOUT clicking 'keep me logged in', and log off again without it being activated.

Or, the usual, and typically the best solution, delete your cookies. I know "deleting cookies" sounds evil, but do it. Trust me. Twisted Evil

Really! That's happened to me occasionally when I'm on my brother's laptop or the other laptop(I only keep myself logged on on the PC), so I'll check it out as well.

I know all (read: none) of you have been waiting for this moment, but the votes are in and tallied! I spent the last half day recording the awards ceremony, but my computer seems to think it'd be funny to delete all the work I've done.

So, if I can sort out computer problems, you should have the winners announced by tonight. If not, I'll maybe post still-frames from the ceremony with the winners, also later today/tonight.

Well, the computer bug ate pretty much all my work (which is beyond frustrating). So, instead you just get pure unadulterated results with a little commentary.
