LD4ALL member awards 2006 (now DJ awards)
PostPosted: Wed 11 Oct, 2006  Reply with quote

ok, i was just thinking about how great some of the members on LD4all are, and how much they contribute to this site. i then had a sudden thought - wouldn't it be great if they could win an award? i don't mean like a trophy, i just mean they get a title, as recognition. i was wondering if we (all the members here) could, at the end of the year make the LD4ALL member awards. i would organise it completely, and if i couldn't handle it someone else would be able to take my roll. i was thinking members could win titles like:

all round best member
friendliest
most helpfull
best avatar
best sig
best username


any other ideas are welcome. i don't even know if this will be successfull, so i will post more stuff about it if i get the thumbs up from the mods............*looks at moogle pleadingly*.............

I don't remember what happened to the last awards thread, so don't look at me. tounge2

But anyways—why do you want to promote awards? Seriously, I'm personaly indifferent to the idea, I want to understand why you think it's so nice. smile

the trouble with "awards" is that there is only one "winner" in every award group sadblauw
it might be nice to win ... but how could you enjoy winning if by winning the award you see others who are as worthy of winning hardly being mentioned?

we do have the occasional fanclub topic in playground but these are just done in a friendly fun way and are not meant to be taken too seriously.

It might be fun to have 'best avatar' or 'best signature' contests from time to time, but awards like 'best member' probably wouldn't work out very well, largely because of the reasons moogle pointed out.

best avatar has happened in the past in the playground ... which seems to be the right place for this type of competion
there's no reason why a best signature competition couldn't be made in playground too colgate

Hehe, so the bruno flags and everything were jokes ? sadblauw <is sad>

I guess the playground is the right place for things like this.

it would be hard to vote for the best member here actually !

Yes, I agree that "best member" is a bit of a general idea. If we do decide to have some more award ideas throughout the year, I'd say it would be best for us to all brainstorm whatever we come up with. In addition to best avatar, sig, and all of that, why don't we try more obscure awards, like highest post frequency, or highest DJ part. grin

I'm a bit dry on ideas, but just like Bruno, I feel indifferent about this whole idea.

noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cry
highest post frequency means spam help!

this rewards idea was tried last year, and our members decided it wasn't a good idea ^^

But there is always second place, third place, maybe 4th or 5th....
That would also give honor to people, that was unable to get first place, and there would be a prize for originality

Anyways, i think that giving awards for first 5 places would be nice idea, it gives more chanses.

What about most insightful comment people have had from another member?

I don't like the most posts idea. Some people may just write loads of quick replies with little insight. Sometimes it's nice to know that someone is actually trying to help you or has interest in your question. When I answer a question, I try to be insightful and as informative as I can be.

I like the best avatar and sig awards idea but perhaps a ceremony would be too formal for this place?

Anyway. it's for the mods to decide I suppose...

I think all these awards are a good idea, even the best member one. Moogle and others were speaking of how there can only be one winner and we don't want any hurt feelings, do we?
I think it's a good idea. In real life, feelings get hurt. Get used to it. Put on a helmet. You're not going to win at everything, you're got going to be mentioned everywhere. That's how life works. I think people can cope with not being mentioned in an internet award "ceremony". And if they can't, they need to learn how to.

I used to be a member at a message board that had awards like these a few times! I actually have the 2002 awards saved to my computer. The awards were:

Best administrator (kind of irrelevant here, isn't Q the only admin?)
Best moderator
Best forum
Most intelligent poster ("most helpful" might be a better alternative)
Best UC hunter (a UC is a video game code... LD4all equivalent would probably be "best lucid dreamer")
Best known
Coolest name
Best avatar

A winner and a runner-up were announced for each category. I don't recall any hurt feelings over it... it was all just for fun. Most of the posts on the page that I have saved from non-winners were simply congratulations for the winners. The only two that mentioned losing were these:

"Dang I didn't get in a catagory! Well maybe next year!" and "Next year, I hope I will be in a catagory. This was so fun!"

So... take that as you will. I have to agree that anything remotely similar to "most posts" is a bad idea. It'll definately lead to spam. Even if it was something like "most non-spam posts", you'd still get people trying to win it by posting "semi-spam" (ie. something that doesn't look like spam, but isn't really useful).
