Again we want to open up category selection to everyone.  Some might need to be removed, maybe renamed.  Or you might have a new suggestion

Here is the complete list of awards we used last year
Most Valuable PEELer 2007
Greatest Debate of 2007
Fantasy Mod
Fiend of WikiPEELia
The PEEL Attention sleeper Award
Second Life
Most Likely to Become a Serial Killer
The Old World PEELer
The Fašade Award
The Humor Bot 5.0 Award
MOST BADDEST ENGRISH
PILF Award
The Tay Zonday Award
Best Fanfictionist
The Captain's Itch Award (best new thread)

We also have a list of all the categories we discussed having at all.  Some of these are repeats, so I'll spoiler it so this post isnt ridiculously long

One thing the council has already talked about is scrapping the Peel Meetup awards for this year.  Since there hasn't been a large meeting this year, its likely that these would be repeat awards.

We should set a maximum number of catagories and keep to that limit or else we'll end up with tons of them. Just pick a number like 30 or 50 or something.

Umm..  I said the spoilers one is all the categories we talked about, and then narrowed down, I didn't suggest that we use all of them.

Anyways, I was thinking about "coolest custom title"

Yeah we cut like 20 off the top of that.


My take (20 categories):

Nothing new there... I don't have any fresh ideas... I'm a loser. frown

D'oh, same as custom rank, I imagine.  Anyway, my grapes are too sour to approve of such a category.

I probably should, but this is all very big. Maybe you could personal message me and tell me what my role in the council is, and what the council does in general.

Anyways, I have no ideas for other awards (I do have some, I'll only post them as last resort, which is unlikely to happen).

K, I suggest 15 categories max. We need to keep these awards exclusive and sought after.

I suggest:

  • PEELer of the year
  • PILF
  • Best thread
  • Best picture
  • Best avatar
  • Best signature
  • Best Corrupt Despot Campaign
  • Most addicted to PEEL
  • Fantasy Mod
  • WikiPEELia's golden contributor
  • Best wiki entry
  • Funniest PEELer
  • Most Missed PEELer
  • Least Intelligable (but still lovable) PEELer
  • PEELer most like their PEEL persona

and also maybe a custom title should be given to the person who has done the most for the PEELies in ther time here? Something like "PEELies MC" but less lame.

In addition, 5 "non merit" (statistical awards) that don't depend on voting. Just nomination; ie: out of the nominees, the winner is the one whose profile statics best fit the award title. When the PEELies are finalised, we should have an award for the PEELer who has:

  • the highest number of poll votes cast (eg: my profile says I have 388, anybody have more?)
  • the highest number of topics started
  • the highest postrate per day
  • most posts in ONTOPIC areas of PEEL

and....

the PEELer who has the most smileys in their first post.

Yeah, some of them aren't going to be reusable, some of them don't relate to 2008, but screw it. This, I think, is the most effective way to re-boot the PEELies since nobody seems to give a fuck.

We did have some statistic based ones last year that were in the "secret" awards section, such as "Least Likely to Win". I'd be fine with more like that, or as proposed by TNUK. It would be hard to track down the data accurately though.

Yes, fine ideas except for some personal ones.

PEELer most like their PEEL persona would require having PEELer most unlike their PEEL persona too I'd think, both or neither.

I'm not likely to win either of them, so how are they personal?

Unless you mean I'm directing them against specific PEELers as personal attacks. I assure you, I'm not.

  • PEELer of the year yes

  • PILF yes

  • Best thread yes

  • Best picture yes

  • Best avatar no, most stay the same

  • Best signature same as above

  • Best Corrupt Despot Campaign no

  • Best wiki entry see above

  • Funniest PEELer yes

  • Most Missed PEELer no... maybe

  • Least Intelligable (but still lovable) PEELer no

  • PEELer most like their PEEL persona no

Agree with Masty. Although if you must have a wikipeelia themed award, maybe keep it to one. I like the one about best entry. That's tangible.

Statistic awards should be excluded.  It is arbitrary to actual PEELformance.

Also, is "sleeper" in that list a code word for "whore"?

Last year people got upset that some of the awards were negative.... actually that's been a complaint for a few years.  I also agree with rach... we can drop wiki contributer for best wiki article, that sounds like fun. 

You could keep the avatar one and just make it say "best new avatar" since a lot of people, including new members, have gotten some neat new avatars.  Last year's winners of that award were really good.

Gudbjorg you should have gotten a url for the secret peelies discussion area, either by email or in #fc.  If you haven't, and assuming you're on the council, I'd ask Amy, since she's the head of council this year.
Also check this out:
http://splitmonkeys.de/wiki/index.php/PEELies

That has a little bit of information about PEELies and links to all the old award sites.  Someone (maybe me) could probably revamp that.... so that it's more informative on how the process works.... plus now that I think about it, I kind of want to remove all the winners listed on it, so people can visit the awards sites and (re)enjoy them as they were intended.

Btw, mom rules, what is a morals charge??? confused

Edit: Yes DrThunder.  Just like we say PEELer I'd Like to Frak; PILF works nicely on its own.  Assuming nobody really takes offense to those, we might could retain them.  I think in general PEEL is mostly family friendly, so that's the thinking behind that.

I agree with Masty on everything regarding Tnuk's proposed awards and would add that Least In Touch with Reality is a great idea.
I would also suggest a couple of less positive ones, just because they're fun. Such as:
  • Worst Poster
  • Shittiest Posting Gimmick
  • Worst Avatar
  • Easily trolled

Also, please no statistics based awards. It will only force people (me) to shitpost more.

Those sound pretty good... And I feel stupid for not thinking of combining Fanartist and Fanfictionist.... that's actually a good idea.

I personally don't have a problem with the negative awards; however, someone usually seems to take offense to it, and apparently we can't have anti-PEELies either. tongue

The problem with some of the negative ones is that some of them are too specific.  I'm thinking especially of the child molester award.  Internet is serious business and all that, but people who don't embrace that philosophy here and in real life might think "LOL pedophile!" isn't as entertaining as those of us voting for them.

I can agree with that.... there's clearly a boundary there.  If I recall correctly, that was a combination with the stalker award clones we had, and Chris Hansen is hilarious.

Nah...the actual Corrupt Despot Election title is just "Person whose butt I want to kiss because they are kool on this message boards and I want them to say kool things about me so I'll be kool too."

But tnuk if we have this PEELie you won't throw a fit if no one votes for the hat will you?

So that's 2 reasons we shouldn't have it...Gopher is right (in theory).

To me I think 15 categories is very limiting but I do think we need no more than 30

Since there are few actually new ideas how about a category for Avatar makers. They are the unappreciated and underrated masters of this board.

Also, I don't think we should combine artist and fictionist. That limits the nominees for these even more.

One last thing. What if we make it so that one person can't win the same category for 2 or 3 years in a row. And make it so that specific categories (like best avatar) can't win twice with the same avatar or signature.
