    Derp I just saw that there was a main one there too. Guess I can just post in that haha!


    RL: You putting it that way can change some of my perspective, actually. But it also seems like an easy way to get nominees too. We'll just have to see yes? At least doing it this way does add some interest!!

    Oh no! People leaning towards their friends in MOTY! The people that they interact with most often, the people that they know the post history/personality more intimately of than a person they've never talked to!

    Hahah can't help but to agree with that. Still though it's not about people voting for their friends but rather that they vote for them for the sake of their friendship or just based on the fact that they're friends without any other reason. But still!

    But to be honest, I didn't vote for someone that I don't know well. Everyone I out down are people I have spoken to and generally get along with.

    My MoTY is Mork, and he's a good friend, but that's not the full package. I think he deserves it.

    I think the fact that people get annoyed because they're voting for their friends is wrong, because you're not exactly gonna go round voting for people you don't know/aren't friends with unless you think they really deserve it.

    But it's fine to vote for your friends if you believe they deserve it. What they mean is that you shouldn't go "oh you're my friend lol I'll just vote for you cause I want you to get it!!" and not have any other reason. It's not like the only people you can vote for are non-friends.

    This is exactly my problem with it, though. If people are going to vote for their friends naturally then it follows that the person with the most friends wins. And that's a popularity contest.

    It doesn't necessarily have to go that way if people can stay unbiased. I have lots of friends here but I'd only vote for people who I think deserve it. I could vote for Red because he's my best friend but I won't. People will be biased towards their non-friends too, so in that sense it doesn't really make a difference. Though obviously in things like favourite gender-here it's obviously gonna be like you say but that's sort of inevitable. But probably that's just expecting too much of people so I suppose you're right.

    Yeah I'm not voting Tom for MotY even though he's the best person ever. Because he never posts. Besides think of it this way - a forum is like a massive social network. Being a good member on a forum is much more than being smart or thoughtful in posts. It's about being friendly, being a member people can rely on for help, being approachable, etc. All these things earn you friends naturally when you act like that. So a "popularity contest" is really the best way to find the member of the year, because the factors that come into a popularity contest are the same things that make a good member a great deal of the time.

    It just seems like people vote for popular people, their friends in those things lik MOTY. Im not voting because I dont know people here, even in this section and I have no idea who I'd even vote for the main category at all. I really just go here to post in like 2 sections so its not that big a deal for me.

    I think my choice for MotY is pretty unbiased, despite the fact that Audy's a freind - where would be this year without Audy's coding for all these new features and changes? I'd say those additions were pretty important and beneficial to the forum as a whole, and worthy of a MotY nomination.

      I think it's the actual like.. questions that don't really help either:
      Favourite Male? Favourite Female? Of course people are gonna vote for their friends in those categories.

      I do like the "Most optimistic" etc ones though! I had to just write some names down because there are cool people like Cirno, for example, who I think deserves a mention.. but I wouldn't know where to put her.

      Maybe there could've been a most caring or most knowledgeable about a section.. etc.. that way it would be mixed up a bit? People who are super knowledgeable in roms, or anime or something could get a mention?

      Maybe we could even have a "biggest donator" this year at the end too, and they could get an emblem?


      TO be honest, though.. dcc is the dcc here.. not suggestions and stuff right? So wanna move the topic to something new?

          Haha, there isn't much unpaired people left in the forum. I'm not paired either, but I just came back from a hiatus so...yeah.

          Fabio is one to be fond of his camera. Heck, he probably has a name for it.

              It gawn be one ugly child.

              Hitler was the one who thought about youths becoming the future, not some guy who can't decide whether he is a Cat or Dog.
