    The nominations for the 2014 KH-Vids User Awards are now open!

    Hey guys! For those who have never participated in the User Awards, or need a bit of a reminder, there are two phases: nominations and polls. A user will not appear in the final polls without first being nominated by their peers, so if you want to see someone in the poll, make sure you nominate them!

    Another important thing to note this year is that we had a poll to decide whether the 'worst' nominations would be self-nominations or open nominations and open nominations won. If you feel you would rather not be put on the poll and don't want to know if you've been nominated, please approach a staff member and request it.

    Before we begin, make sure you’ve read the general info on the User Awards. If it has left your questions answered, shoot me a message or post in this thread before nominating!

    How do I nominate users?

    Nominations will be sent to a number of different staff members, who will then tally the results and deliver them to the admins. Categories, as you can see above, are organized into major groups; each staff member is given a group to handle.

    You will start a personal conversation with the applicable staff member, listing your nominations. Please take time in considering your nominations, because once they’re in, there’s no going back!

    Please try to utilize only the user’s current username. We will not hunt someone down if you put their past username or a nickname, and we reserve the right to ignore the nomination all together if you neglect to follow this rule.

    You are allowed to nominate two users per category. For group categories, such as Cutest Couple, you can nominate up to two couples. The same goes for threads.

    You may not nominate yourself for anything but the two specially marked categories (see above). However, you may nominate a couple you are in for Cutest Couple (or any similar category).

    You will include the entire category list in your message, even the categories you are not nominating for.

    Please do not nominate members who do not belong in the category; I realize it’s hilarious to vote William, a Premium member, for Best Overall Staff Member, but it spoils the awards for those who do deserve them. There may be exceptions.

    These nominations cover the time period from the previous User Awards (summer of 2013) to this year’s (summer of 2014). If a member held a position during that time period, they are allowed to be nominated for it. For example, if William was a Sectional Moderator until February of 2014 but is now a Super Moderator, he is allowed to be nominated for both Best Sectional Moderator and Best Super Moderator.

    If I win Master Debater again, I'll be disappointed in you guys, because I haven't been here.

    Have fun, everyone.

    Did I misinterpret? I had been under the impression that the Worst categories would be changed to free-for-all, not limited to submit-yourself this time. Could have misread.

    You did not misinterpret. She meant that people are free to opt out of nominations by PMing staff; that includes worst nominations.

    I will not tally any entries unless you specifically title your PMs to me as such:

    "Plums is the cutest admin on the server~"

    or

    "Why does Misty have like 12 accounts?"

    We can't even nominate you as Favorite Banned Member. Or Most Intimidating. You're getting soft, son. Keep your eye on the ball.

    Actually if they've been out for most of the year they're still eligible. I believe I won something like Favorite Banned or Most Missed last year and I was back in time to receive it in person. :v

    You can nominate someone for an award if they qualified between the end of last year's Awards and the start of the current Awards. :]

    e.g. Since Cat was a premium member and then got made staff, she is eligible for both Best Premium and the staff awards.

    Can I just also add that if you're nominating threads / fanfics etc that are threads, link it if you can because its really hard to find some things, even if we do have a nifty search feature.
