Welcome one, welcome all, welcome mebers new, welcome members old to...
The Sixth Somewhat-Annual Muppet Central Forum Awards 2010
This is the time of the year where we at Muppet Central Forum gather together to honor outstanding forum members from 2009! We have categories for everyone and everyone is welcome to vote! But how, you may be asking yourself, do you, the unknowing masses, go about voting for said outstanding members? Well, the answer is simple and shall be presented to you in the form of bulletted rules (definitely not stolen from the last two year's awards threads) (posted by moi).
Rules and Guidelines for Voting in the
Muppet Central Forum Awards:
Muppet Central Forum Awards:
First and foremost, copy and paste the list of award categories into an e-mail and enter your votes for the categories.
You do NOT have to vote in all of the categories!
Absolutely NO voting for yourself.
Campaigning for yourself IS allowed, as long as it DOES NOT get out of hand. If it gets out of hand one of our moderators will quickly delete all of your campaign threads and you will not be allowed to attend the ceremony. It's harsh, but these rules are here for a reason. (Acceptable means of campaigning include: campaigning via signatures, campaigning via avatar, and campaigning in THIS thread.)
You MAY vote for a forum member in more than one category. (e.g. I vote for Beauregard for Funniest Member of 2009 and Biggest Supporter of The Jim Henson Company in 2009.)
Once you've filled out your ballot... Send an e-mail to email@example.com. Any ballots posted in this thread (or anywhere else) will NOT be counted. (Your email will not be known by anyone but me and will NOT be used for any purposes other than to count your votes.)
ALL BALLOTS MUST BE E-MAILED BY FEBRUARY 8TH, 2009. Absolutely no exceptions! (Unless of course you have a really good reason. ) We need this time to count the votes and create the awards before the ceremony.
Attendance at the Awards Ceremony on February 28th is NOT required, but IS requested. It's fun, it's free, and, hey, you might win something!
And the biggest rule that absolutely MUST be followed... HAVE FUN! ! !
To make things easier, I will be posting the official ballot in a post immediately following this one. The categories for this year's ceremony were picked apart and debated over by a committee of MC members hand-picked by me. I assume they wish to remain anonymous, but know that they've done a fantastic job and I couldn't have asked for a better team!
I'm also extremely honored to announce that once again we will be partnering with The MuppetCast hosted by Steve Swanson to broadcast our Awards Ceremony. Steve has been gracious enough to dedicate one of his shows to us and I couldn't be happier! The official date of the audio-ceremony will be revealed... once we actually know it!
Anyway... that's really all I have to say in this post. Please, please, please don't hesitate to vote! EVERYONE is welcome and encouraged to come vote! We want this to be a huge turnout year!
And remember, these awards are meant to unite MC. If you don't win that award you really wanted, don't feel bad. Just remember that a good friend and a fellow Muppet fan did win it. Everyone here deserves awards just for being themselves! (But we don't have that long to make awards and... quite frankly, we're lazy!)
So, without further ado, welcome, ladies, gentlemen, penguins, chickens, rats, and weirdos, to The Sixth Somewhat-Annual Muppet Central Forum Awards 2010!
HAVE FUN! ! !
Sincerely and Insanely Yours,
