    With the end of the year 2012 it is, once again, time for everybody's favourite award show. As with every award show, there can be no winners without nominations. Hence:

    Nominations for the SPF Awards 2012 are now open in the following categories:

    Best D2 thread - Which was the most interesting or informative thread that you read this year?
    Best OT thread - Excluding the EMB.
    Best Mat/Pat - Consider the quality of the write up, how well gear was used or balanced, or an innovative build.
    Best Guardian - As above, but for hardcore.
    Best Collection - Best collection of Mats/Pats/Guardians, as opposed to threads about a single character in the above two categories. Collection must be completed in 2012, but can be started earlier.
    Best Tourney - Which tourney was most fun? Which kept the participants interested all the way through? Which had the newest ideas?
    Best Guide - In a game this old, you would think all the guides have already been written, but still we come out with more. Which one grabbed your attention, gave a fresh slant to a build or taught you something new?
    Best Screenshot - Consider either artistic merit or just the wow factor.
    Best Video - Entertaining? Enlightening? Artistic?
    Best Poster - Who is the most helpful, most amusing or just all round nice guy?
    Best Newcomer - The person who posted an intro thread first in 2012 and now seems like they have been here forever.
    Best Returnee - Who were the boomerangs of 2012?
    Biggest Spammer - The member who is unable to control what is written by their keyboard
    Best Trader - Who went out of their way to go through their stashes to help you out with you ISO?
    Best WTF?! moment / Do'h moment - you read it and were glad it wasn't you making an idiot of yourself for a change

    Special Award for Outstanding Contribution to the SPF
    Lifetime Achievement Award
    The following are not eligible as they have already won the award: Nightfish, Cattleya, DarkChaos, Randall & Silospen, The Doc, Thyiad, jjscud, jianzons, RTB.


    Rules
    - Nominations will close on sunday the 27th January (10 days) or earlier if the process has run out of steam.
    - Anyone can make a nomination.
    - Entries must be from posts / threads still active / people joining / returning in the calendar year 2012.
    - Entries from other sub-forums are allowed, but they must be posted by active SPFers, eg. Asmo's guides in the Paladin forum.
    - Nominations will be judged by a panel, winners will be announced (hopefully) around the end of the January / early February. This isn't a "most votes wins" awards, think of it like The Oscars.
    - You can make a maximum of three nominations in a single category.
    - Please post reasons for nominations, where possible.
    - You can self nominate - don't be shy, screenshots will be very difficult to find and judge otherwise.

    - Please post nominations in the table below using the format of the example below and avoid duplicate nominations.

    - I will not accept nominations for threads without a valid link. It is a lot of work to go back and try and find threads when somone has posted stuff like "I nominate OMG for that thread when he spammed alot." If it is worth nominating, please do a search for it.

    Judges - Help appreciated
    The winners of each category will be decided by a panel of judges (most likely 8-10). If you are interested in being a judge and:

    - have been a regular poster in the SPF throughout 2012
    - have been a member since at least 2011

    please send me a PM. I will also send out some PMs to some of the former judges and the like on my own, bugging you to join the panel during the next couple of days :badteeth:

    it might be helpful to quote the previous poster before adding your nominations like in mfo signup and stuff so that people can see all nominations up to that point in the most recent post.

    Oh, we're allowed to renominate the same things? Because I agreed with most people :p

    Or did I misunderstand this?

    Also remember that reasoning for nominations is appreciated - especially for the awards like "Best Poster", "Life Time Achievement", etc.

    Edit: removed goober's OT thread as it is from 2013.

    Phar: no point in renominating, no :p

    Edit #2: added a few nominations my self, just the ones I could remember. Most likely more to come.

    - Guardian Kindle: a guardian with 264 life and basically untwinked-looking gear speaks for it self. RIP Kindle. (also, hilarious write up)
    - dweb screenie: absolutely crazy and great show of an unusual playstyle around these parts
    - Fabian: Guides, spreadsheets, knowledge, effort and optimization. Created what may be the most efficient MFer ever made around here (and maybe just in D2 in general).
    - Hrus: Last year's runner up. Great contributions throughout the years of the SPF.

    Apologies. My nomination of RobbyD is based on his extensive work and input regarding patch 1.09.

    RTB won Special Award for Outstanding Contribution to the SPF for 2010, so he isn't eligible. I was going to nominate him but I went checking.

    How djmbbandie got his nickname, "Bambie" - Drystan

    =====

    Yay! Nice to see this is now up. I also agree, don't end the nominations early. This happened last year, and many of us procrastinate and search for more posts before nominating, thus post in the last day or two. I'll be looking for a couple others (one I think will be nominated anyway [EMB post 50k steal],) so may update some more later.

    There you go bandie. Bandie hasn't been around for a year yet, and still has managed 3k posts. He's a regular in the bar, keeping up with the general chat and gossip, and even installed a new waypoint system into the bar, linking to his classes and house! It feels like he's been around for a couple years.

    Also, nominating myself for best WTF/D'oh moment... Why does djmmbandie get called "bambie" or "barbie" occasionally? This is why. If anyone can work out a way to link to the individual posts, please let me know. Post #1, 3 and 9 on that page. I'm not sure if it'll work out properly due to different "posts per page," so please let me know.

    I liked the time that Mal asked the same question 4 (or more) times within a few days across many threads and was answered in all of them but never checked back.

    Here's something to actually add for the next person that updates, though :)
    Best video: Punching the ancients which is in WoRG's 99 thread. I believe it's a few posts down. I would also nominate that for "best guardian" but I don't think it counts.
