YouChews the Winner Awards 2012 [POLLS NOW CLOSED]

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
