At this time of year, us in the UK are presented with nominations for our Sports Personality of the Year (SPOTY). I thought it might be nice to celebrate all the people who do good things for FUMBBL and have a FUMBBLer of the Year contest!

The rules will be simple. In this thread people are free to make Nominations for their FOTY along with a reason. Once a nomination is seconded they will be added to the list of nominees. These will them be turned into a Poll where people can vote for their FOTY! This isn't based entirely on FUMBBL achievements, but they can be considered. It for contributing to the community as a whole. Someone who runs leagues, contributes to meta groups, helps people by creating logos, or updates wikis and guides. Anything that constitutes a good FUMBBLer. Two basic rules:

1) This is a thread of celebration. No negativity is allowed!

2) Nominees cannot be FUMBBL Staff members, for obvious reasons. Otherwise Christer and Kalimar would win hands down Very Happy

****************

So, to the nominations!


I'd like to start off with 2

Happygrue: For creating ARR, and all the positive energy that has brought to the Box.

Sonrises: For all his hard work and efforts this year with the tournament stats and Top 25 list. I still check every update to see where I've placed.

I like your idea and great nominations.

A nominee that isn't as obvious is the fluff-master Rabe: For creating the Borg-theme, taking a theme-idea to a new level to (almost) all divisions (in my small world atleast). Me likes.

I would like to nominate The_Great_Gobbo for his tireless commitment to roleplay. His enjoyment of the game for reasons other than winning is a pleasure to behold.

I second all those nominations! Very Happy

Also, like, maybe winning two Majors and unforlorning a race might count for something, too? --> Jokaero

Simply because of the volume of work he does behind the scenes which no-one sees.


You broke one of the 2 rules!

I think The Great Gobbo will be a popular choice. He must hold the record for Rated 6 blogs?

I would like to vote for Christer and Kalimar, but the rules won't allow that. Also think the testing team did a great job, but that is not one person.

So, I have to give the nod to Garion, with Harvestmouse a close second (thanks for all your icon help).

- He worked on the Secret League (with harvestmouse I believe helping out)
- He made all the cool new custom pitches for the client
- He was a testing machine. He was the most prolific bug tester and closer.
- Other stuff others have said.

My runners up:

harvestmouse (explained above)

that gobbo guy, cuz he iz da lulz

PainState, for the great KPL, for Milford, for tourney major fluff and predictions, and for showing that humanity is always bound to pull some crazy, head-scratching plays in the majors. Wink
