A special time is just around the corner... the 5 year anniversary of YouChew! It's already been half a decade. To celebrate, we're going to give awards out based on nominations and votes by YOU, the community of YouChew.

Here's how it works. You can nominate one user per category for each of our categories (listed below) and after we finish counting the nominations and open our voting polls, you'll be able to vote for the winner in each category. After the voting period is over, we announce the winners, as chosen by you.

Here are our categories:

Best Newcomer
Awarded to a more recent member that fits in and shows just how easy it is to fit in. Only users that registered after January 1, 2011 are eligible for this award.
(UPDATED: See Addendum II below)

User with Funniest Signatures
Awarded to the user that people agree has the funniest signatures.
UPDATED: You can nominate two members for this category (see Addendum I below)

User with Funniest Avatars
Awarded to the user that people agree has the funniest avatars.

Spirit of YouChew Award
An award given to a user who exemplifies everything YouChew stands for. What exactly do you think that is? You be the judge and nominate.

User with Best Videos
Awarded to the user that people agree has the best or funniest videos compared to others.
UPDATED: You can nominate two members for this category (see Addendum I below)

Friendliest Member
Given to friendly members who manage to be well-mannered and nice to everybody in general. Mostly to members who exemplify how YouChew can be a friendly community.

Most Likely to Rule the World
Awarded to that one user who just might let you die quick and painlessly in their new world order... vote now and they might let you off with a life sentence instead.

Best Image Editor
Now that mastery in Photoshop will come in handy. Awarded to user that shows adept and often hilarious ability at image manipulation.

Best Artist
For those who know their way around a pencil, paintbrush, tablet, or otherwise. Awarded to user that shows artistic prowess on more than one occasion.

Most Helpful Member
Need some help? Awarded to the user who is most willing to help others or is often helpful with advice.

Member with Funniest Posts
Awarded to anybody who just always seems to know the right thing to say.
UPDATED: You can nominate two members for this category (see Addendum I below)

That's all our categories. To send a successful nomination, just follow these simple rules:
  • List the categories and each user you want to nominate for those categories. Only one user per category, unless stated otherwise. Then send it in a PM to Nomination King where we will tally up the nominations.


  • Try to format the nomination like in the example shown below. This is mostly so the messages are easy to read and count.


  • You can choose to ignore some categories if you don't feel comfortable nominating anybody for them, but just remember that you are only allowed to send one nomination message to the Nomination King at a time, so be sure you're 100% satisfied with your nomination message before sending it. Once you send it, that's it.


  • Banned users or people that are not members of YouChew are not eligible to participate in the awards. If you choose to go ahead and nominate a banned user or somebody outside YouChew anyway, your nomination will be ignored.


  • The absolute deadline for submitting nominations is May 11th. Voting will begin on May 13th. We'll be using the time in between to make final counts and to get the polls ready for voting.


  • Voting will end June 1st. Winners of the vote will be announced June 4th.


  • To keep things exciting during the voting, you will not be able to see the poll results until June 4th when the winners are announced. This is to keep everybody in suspense over who's winning so far.
A sample nomination PM would look something like this:

Best Newcomer
Nomination: Member 1

User with Funniest Signatures
Nomination: Member 2 and Member 3

User with Funniest Avatars
Nomination: Member 3

Spirit of YouChew Award
Nomination: Sample Member

User with Best Videos
Nomination: Member 3 and Member 1

Friendliest Member
Nomination: Member 1

Most Likely to Rule the World
Nomination: Member 4

Best Image Editor
Nomination: N/A

Best Artist
Nomination: Member 1

Most Helpful Member
Nomination: N/A

Member with Funniest Posts
Nomination: Member 2 and Member 1


Feel free to copy and paste the above example and edit it with your nominations.

Remember to PM all nominations to Nomination King before May 11th. If you still have questions, feel free to also send a PM to Nomination King. Thanks for reading and happy voting!

ADDENDUM I:

We've hit a few problems with some of our nominations. You see, in three categories (see below), almost everybody has nominated somebody different. If we don't really do anything, the polls for the three categories are likely going to feel forced for voters and the lucky handful of people with two nominations running.

Here are the categories
  • User With Funniest Signature
  • User With Best Videos
  • Member With Funniest Posts
So how are we going to fix this? Instead of nominating one person, for these three categories, we want you to nominate two. For these three categories, you can nominate two people. Both nominations count equally, and although you don't need to nominate two users, it's highly encouraged that you do.

Did you already send in your nomination before the addition of this addendum? It's not too late! If you want, pick a second member for these three categories only and let Nomination King know in a follow-up PM.

We will determine in the future whether another addendum or two are necessary. Or if some additional categories need secondary nominations as everything progresses. Hopefully that won't be necessary, but keep checking back anyway for whenever this thread is updated. Thank you for participating.

EDIT: Reworded the addendum to be more concise and less confusing.

Hey guys, just a friendly reminder that this is all still going to happen. Don't think for a second that I forgot about this. I've got all the current nominations tallied up so far. If you haven't already, be sure to submit your nominations by May 11th, because that is the absolute deadline.

If you guys haven't noticed, the winner and runner-up of each vote will be receiving a special medal. So once again, be sure to read the rules if you haven't already, feel free to participate if you haven't done so (time's running out already), and when the time comes, get voting! You might win at something. Who knows? Good luck and chews some nominations already!

ADDENDUM II:

I've been asked a few questions about this already, so I've decided to add these two changes to the rules.
  • Due to more than one user already asking, yes I will be allowing users who already submitted nominations to change their vote for Best Newcomer. If you already nominated and feel you hadn't made the best choice for that category in particular, feel free to send a follow-up PM to Nomination King, and your nomination will be adjusted accordingly.
  • Many users in the categories are tied with each other, even after adding the second nominations to those categories. Many users are still picking different people for each category, making it hard for anybody to get a real lead or resulting in several users being tied with only two nominations. To alleviate this problem, admins and moderators are being given the right to make tie-breaking nominations to help even things out. The reason we're doing this is because we don't want to spoil whoever is going to show up on the polls so soon. We also want to make it feel like your choices are more fitting and more exciting, instead of letting users feel disappointed that the polls are full of people that just barely got there. Please note this will only affect a small handful of rather subjective categories as well.
Please note that this is the first time that we're trying anything like this, so we're still trying to figure out what works best as we go along. I already have some ideas for next year's nominations and votes if this turns out well.

If you haven't sent in any nominations, hurry before time runs out. May 11th is the absolute deadline to get those nominations in, and the polls will be open on May 13th. Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Another bump to remind everybody that you've got only one week left before the nomination deadline! May 11th is your last day to submit any nominations!

I strongly urge you to send in nominations if you haven't already, because time is already running out. Only 28 members have submitted any form of nominations so far. If you haven't submitted yet, you still have a little time left. Follow the instructions in the first post and send your nominations to Nomination King right away, because the clock is ticking.

After that, nominations will be double checked and voting will officially begin on May 13th. If we receive enough nominations, there will be less of an urgent need for a tie-breaker by the staff, so if you haven't submitted, get to it now! Have fun and good luck!

Today is the last day to submit nominations. Once today is over, the chance is gone.

Nominations will be closed starting tomorrow, and voting will be open on Sunday. If you haven't already, start sending in your nominations. Your nomination might make a huge difference in who appears on the polls or not.

Since it's past midnight on the east coast already, nominations are now officially closed.

Tomorrow everything will be set up to start the polls, and the polls will officially open to the users this Sunday. Still, be sure to keep up with this thread, because some things are still in the air at this point. Instead of having to resort to a tie-breaker vote for some of the more problematic categories, some of them may be thrown out altogether. This will only affect two or three at most, as nominations have really shaped up over the past few months.

Anyway, be sure to check back on Sunday to start voting. Good luck!

THE POLLS ARE NOW OPEN!

Vote now and good luck! We checked thoroughly and luckily, we didn't have to resort to any tiebreaker whatsoever! The category "User with Best Videos" was however thrown out for being too vague and subjective, as nominations were still flimsy in that category. The rest were able to stay. So get to voting and good luck!

TIDE: Also, users will NOT be able to see the results until the votes are over. This is to make sure the winner is more of a surprise. So don't think it's a glitch on your end. If you have any difficulties voting in the contest or notice any errors (like spelling or whatever), then feel free to send us a PM and we'll do our best to fix it.
