So... people don't seem to be that arsed about PEELies. I recommend the following:

  • let's make them more exclusive. Max. 15 categories.
  • let's open it up a little - if we name the most likely to win as the "sponsor" for the category, they can't win it. But they get to have their name in the category title.
  • two awards per category. Gold and Silver. Obviously "silver" is a euphamism for loser, but it makes the runners up feel less bad about sucking so hard.
  • there should be an award named after my hat.
  • nobody should be able to win more than one gold award. If somebody wins more than one gold, then the second gold they won should be given to the "silver" winner and the actual silver award should be given to the third place nominee.
  • there should be an award for the best Corrupt Despot campaign
  • there should be an award for the best totalnerduk
  • can somebody please talk to marc about maybe having the PEELies generate a custom title for somebody? I mean, maybe the one who puts the most effort into the council should get a custom title to reflect that. and we should vote on who that is. Whether it be Gopher, Winna, Nix, Teral, Slackit, etc.
  • BirthdayClown shouldn't win any PEELies.
  • there ought to be no negative awards this time round. All should be positive. And if we only have 15 of them, there ought to be no lame ones.

We also need some promotional artwork and maybe a 3-D rotating gif of an award statue that we can put on the wiki, and on wherever the PEELies award website ends up. I can handle promotional artwork, but it would be nice if somebody else volunteered as I can get quite busy with the real world at times.

We need to get organised to get this shit done. People need to start volunteering themselves for jobs to do, and we need to get the category list pared down, and organise the voting.

Somebody show some initiative.... please.

Don't I have a custom title already? :submits post to check:
:edit: yah, I do.

Since I'm here, for what it's worth I say keep it simple. We're not putting on the oscars here, it's great to have fun with it but fun in the planning stages becomes work in the later stages. 30-50 categories seemed insane to me last year, and it seems insane to consider doing that many again. A dozen or so seems like plenty to me, and if we have to have a whole preliminary round of voting to pick them it seems preferable to me to having a huge sprawling list of 200 candidates again.

Glad you agree with shortening the list. What do you think of my fifteen suggestions?

If somebody wins more than one gold, then the second gold they won should be given to the "silver" winner and the actual silver award should be given to the third place nominee. Nay. If there are 15 awards, how often are you going to see repeat winners, anyway?
  • there should be an award for the best Corrupt Despot campaign Nay. The best campaigner is the guy who wins Corrupt Despot.
  • there should be an award for the best totalnerduk I nominate the "blah blah blah" smiley.

I mean, maybe the one who puts the most effort into the council should get a custom title to reflect that. and we should vote on who that is. Whether it be Gopher, Winna, Nix, Teral, Slackit, etc. You could just ask Marc for a title, if that's what you really want.
  • BirthdayClown shouldn't win any PEELies. Nay. In fact, I think I'll nominate him for best totalnerduk.
  • there ought to be no negative awards this time round. All should be positive. And if we only have 15 of them, there ought to be no lame ones. Having only positive awards is lame. Also, get rid of the old/young awards.

In conclusion, worst PEELies ever.

Well, probably not.

Best sad hat?

There should certainly only be 15 awards. None to do with Peelathons because there haven't been any good ones (yet) this year, and this is circle jerky enough as it is. Nothing to do with age or location. The award about long service or whatever can go because we're all as loserish as each other. (Hello, nearly 8 years?). I don't think there should be gold and silver awards, mostly because there are usually ties/ close calls and things like that and it will get complicated. Tied winners, yes.

A lot of the awards could be assimilated under one heading, probably. We had about 6 awards to do with creepy/stalker/freaky/gropey peelers last year, for example.

Oh, and I like the negative ones. As long as they're actually funny. Or, as funny as a peelie can be.

Imagine 20 people making 5 nominations a piece for 46 different categories..... counting them up by hand, and tallying them in notepad... also note that some awards aren't format friendly.....  like the best picture award: "ummm, that one from some thread I saw!" big grin

To be honest, I didn't mind it too much, but I'll agree that we probably overdid it last year.  PEELies have never actually had real after effects on PEEL... so although the custom title idea or the fantasy mod award sound nice, I doubt they'll ever bring themselves to any fruition.  I would like to see another contest for a custom title, like how Jeffy won his, but we've had a lot of competitions lately, so that can probably be saved for later.... hmpf

Rach is right that we had a lot of very similar awards... however, there were even more similar ones before we cut down the list.  I think some of the stranger awards are neat, but they need to have a good setup to pay off. 

Lastly, I'm not against the gold star, silver star idea.... however, I did personally show a lot of statistical work for the ones last year, including naming everyone/everything that was nominated for an award.  I'd like to think that people enjoyed seeing that they got nominated.

Pretty sure I've made this observation before, tnuk, but the way you love to keep milking a joke until it not only stops being funny but stops even bearing a passing resemblance to humor, you ought to write for SNL. That sort of thing is their bread-n-butter. smile

I agree with...
- Limiting down the categories. I haven't gone over all the ones from last year and new ones but only 15 might be difficult to get down to.

- Gold and Silver places because it makes more people happy... I guess.

- Custom titles so people have something to show for their work. (Even though improbable but how about possible titles for PEELy winners)

- Also we should definately have some kind of advertising stuff like tnuk said and I would be willing to do promotional stuff
(not animated, I have no clue as to how to do that)

On a side note

-winna, I DEFINITELY loved the pie charts and pool data that was done for last year and seeing how many votes and percentages people got.

- Why do the PEELies not have their own board section? We have to go in to off-topic then go into the PEELies topic and then click a link to get here...why?

The PEEL Vault in PEEL 2.0 was created specifically for something like the PEELies.  In the past, the PEELies got its own custom board, but these were never saved, so all the threads we ever had in a PEELies board are lost, 'cept for that saved on a remote hdd.  With the PEEL Vault, we can save all the things that warrant having their own temporary boards, including Fall Madness, and the PEELies.

I don't know about the gold and silver thing... I'm really not on either side of that fence.

Nobody will probably get a custom title for winning a PEELie... however, we do keep recognition of such things on wikiPEELia, when people actually edit it.

The promotional stuff seems like a cool idea if it happens.... I might be willing to help out with that. smile

I liked the pie charts and data thing from last year too.  It took me a long time to make those pages since I tried to include almost every little piece of information; I'd like to see something like that again this year. smile

It could just be because the PEELies discussion is in its own sub-forum.  The icon changes on the PEEL Vault front page but not on the PEEL main page.  The same thing happened with Fall Madness, as I recall.
