Howdy folks! Welcome to the PEELies 2009! I'd like to take a moment to thank [-mArc-] for getting this board opened, especially as he opened this during the busy holiday season.


The Council has been working hard getting together the awards together this year. Expect some new awards and the return of some old favorites. The categories should be posted by the first week of the new year to allow nominating to begin soon afterward. If anybody has any last-minute suggestions for awards, post them here and we'll definitely look into them. Otherwise, sit back, relax in the holiday season, and wait for an epic PEELies.


Additionally, for those who are not aware of the procedure, the PEELies should function as they did last year, with separate nomination threads being made for the various awards and then balloting being done via e-mail. I will post an update in this thread once the length of nominating and balloting and the e-mail address for balloting have been determined.

Well, I've sent my email. I must say, I'm disappointed with the lack of candidates for some of the categories. Very few people stand above the crowd this year.

I agree.  The only category I'm having trouble narrowing down the field for is "Most Worthless", and I don't really like participating in the negative awards.

Yeah, Imaginary awards for real people behind avatars on a board for a cartoon series. Seems contrived. Very.

OH MY FUCKING GOD, HE'S RIGHT!  The PEELies are a hollow lie, devoid of substance and meaning.  How did we not notice this before?

I guess we did and decided it was fun enough to keep doing it.

If you've had fun voting on Most n00b or most worthless, or any other catagory that embarrasses people your definition of fun is far different to mine.

As in previous years, you don't have to nominate somebody for each award. I know you know, Thunder Boy, but just a friendly reminder to those who don't know.

PEEL is so much more than just some "board for a cartoon series." It's a community, and some people very much enjoy and appreciate these awards. People have met their spouses on PEEL and had kids, people have met their best friends on PEEL, people have been able to relieve stress when tragedy hits them on PEEL.

If you've had fun voting on Most n00b or most worthless, or any other catagory that embarrasses people your definition of fun is far different to mine.
We've cut out a lot of "negative" awards this year. The only ones that somebody could call negative are "Least Valuable Poster" and "Most n00by". Both of these are in jest and not meant to hurt or embarrass somebody. There are "catagories" (as you would say, LM) that we could've used (and have used in the past) that would've been far more embarrassing. Does anybody remember "the Chris Hansen Award"?

Considering that the first reaction to announcement of my mothers death was an allusion to Norman Bates, I'm sure there are a lot out there who would wish for more negative "awards".

Least Valuable PEELer. Three nominations.

To be fair, it did seem like you were joking at first. It's not that we want to label people as tossers, it's just that sometimes people are tossers, and we like to make sure that we take note of it.

Also, it's harmless fun. Lighten the fuck up and stop being such a killjoy. A "negative" award is still recognition of a sort... some people even thrive on such attention.

When you win "least valuable" and "most n00by", don't come crying. You made your own bed, and we expect you to lie in it. Probably whilst masturbating.

When you quote one of the most well-known lines of Psycho in an out-of-the-blue, single sentence announcement of your mother's death, follow it with a line of usually ironic cry emoticons and you're a three month old poster who acts like a contrived fake account, maybe there are better ways to honour her memory? All to be said on the subject from here because the comments were banished for a reason! smile

This whole nomination process is very self-revelatory for me: for example, everyone I'm nominating for PEELer I'd Like to Fuck is foreign. Apparently, all you need is an accent to get me goin'. Honestly. Even if you sounded like Peter Sellers in The Pink Panther, you'd probably do the trick.

And "favorite." And, if they're feeling old school, maybe they'd go for "shoppe" instead of "shop." It's all the same to me.

So I'm supposed to care if I get these awards? Why don't you chase me around PEELland just to tell me. Because I couldn't care less. So what is it, harmless fun or a punishment for me to get me to straighten up or leave?

You must be bored to answer my posts. You said this earlier when you called me yardstick or fucktard. Really bored.

What he meant was that if you continually bring up these things and start these arguments that people will have a negative opinion of you. He wasn't chasing you around PEELia just to say that, he was saying it from your hijacking of this thread.

I searched through all of TNUK's recent posts, and he has never called you "yardstick" or "fucktard", nor has any post in reaction to you been edited. Where did he say this? So, the question is how did you learn of yardstick, somebody who was banned long before you got here?


Also, please refrain from non-PEELies discussion. That's what we have the Test Thread in Off-Topic for. I would like you to relocate this to that thread, thank you. Now go away, or I shall fart at you a second time!

If you don't want to win any "negative" awards, Lobs, then you have my personal assurance that I will do everything in my power as a council member to count the nominations as they come in and then put them forward for the final vote.

If you're in the final vote somewhere, then take it as a compliment, but if, at that point, you still want yourself removed I'm sure we could work you out of it. But I would hope that you wouldn't want us to do that.

The PEELies are a bit of fun, that's all. Futurama is a bit of fun. I'm guessing that's why you called yourself LobsterMooch.

FUN!!

I only searched through recent posts as I thought this was a recent incident for you to have brought it up. I didn't expect you to hold a grudge against him since October. Do not take it as an assumption that you lie. You were in a politics thread. You were dicey with him, he was dicey with you. Saucier things have been said. And you obviously don't know TNUK, he was rather reserved that time. Consider yourself lucky, as I'm sure there's far more he could've said.

Now that's that for the unexpected PEELies Inquisition.* This is for general discussion of the PEELies, and this conversation has veered from being on-topic. As I said before, LobsterMooch, please relocate this to the Test thread. You may PM me if you like with further questions.

Do we have to nominate people for every single category? Because I have no idea of who to nominate for most of them.
