RE: The Sprites Inc Awards!
I find it amusing that the most adamant voice about this being "rigged" is one who didn't even bother to vote. Bitch and complain all you'd like but the fact of the matter is that is how the votes fell. Perhaps if more than 15 people voted (and of those 15, only 7 did full ballots), perhaps it may have turned out differently. But if you chose to not participate, that's not my problem.

Yes, a couple of these were for amusement only (the Booblight was going to be called the Jace Award originally) but most of them are true awards as voted by the other community members. If you feel that there is some sort of conspiracy, I will send you screenshots of all the PMs I received and you can verify with your own eyes and even ask them yourself to ensure the accuracy of the votes that this is how people voted.

Again, (and I can't believe I even have to say this), this is all in good fun. It's not like someone is getting money or prestigious rewards for winning.

Wedge award. How do you even know it would go to AshuraAlchemist? It's true that the BnG, Booblight and Favic awards were pretty obvious, but really, claiming the awards are rigged is dumb.

Really dumb.

Especially when, like Rhythm said, no one is making money. You are taking this too seriously.

Although NeoMan get 1/5th of the awards is pretty special.

This is a big reason I didn't participate. I knew who would get most of those awards and it wouldn't matter if I voted against them or not. I have no problems with the results, because it was obvious (for the most part) how things would end up. I'm not trying to be a bastard, just voicing my opinion. To those of us who know the forum (and the old one somewhat), we should all know who got the awards. it just felt a little closed-ended

RE: The Sprites Inc Awards!
There needs to be a "player 2" award for whomever keeps placing second in multiple areas.

Christianity is my faith not my religion. And neither should be pushed upon people.

RE: The Sprites Inc Awards!
Speaking of new award ideas, there should be an award for creating/participating in Smeghead games the most.

Who even cares if NeoMan won lots? Who cares if it was designed for certain people? It was fun!

RE: The Sprites Inc Awards!
I think I know who would win the Smeghead award: Victorystar. There was a time when half of the new posts were his.

I sort of like the Second Player award. That's an award I may win eventually. The award has one silly problem though: What if you place second on the Second Player award? Would we have a Second Second Player award? Big Grin

And AWM, I only said NeoMan winning lots is special. It's by no means the wrong kind of weird. But it is indeed fun, which is why it shouldn't be treated like an election.

I think he meant each award gets a "Player 2" sub-award. Like, "Best Spriter-Player 2" or "Smegheader-Player 2."

As for other award possibilities, I think there ought to be one along the lines of "best critiquer." Being a sprite forum, critiquing our members old and new is a vital part of our forum's activity. And a lot of people do it, some admittedly better than others.

We also should have a "best original story" sort of award, for the members who have specifically written their own stories for fan projects. A bit of a biased award on my end, but I think it'd be a nice one nonetheless.

RE: The Sprites Inc Awards!
I actually meant an award for placing 2nd a lot of times in many catergories. Not giving out second place awards.

Wait. I know what the award would be called... the WILY. He keeps placing 2nd in just about everything too.
