***THE 2021 GENERAL BOARD AWARDS: Nominations Thread*** 

Post#1 » by -Sammy- » Wed Jun 9, 2021 4:53 pm

Guess what, y'all? As if you didn't already get enough for your money (you guys are all paying your monthly RealGM subscription fees, right? Because the accounting team is counting on that $), we're officially announcing the nomination phase of

THE 2021 REALGM GENERAL BOARD AWARDS

The awards will be presented during the upcoming offseason, and will be given for the following exciting categories:

Thread of the Year
Post of the Year
Ballboy of the Year
Most Improved Poster
Most Valuable Poster


We're still working out the details of the rewards, but we'll have an official trophy graphic for winners to wear if they like, as well as a special title for all to see.

What we'd like from y'all is to post your nominations for these categories here, in this thread. Make clear which award(s) you're nominating for, and post links to threads and posts as appropriate.


Please read this part VERY CAREFULLY: This thread and these awards are not intended for anyone to criticize, attack, mock, or otherwise disparage any member of this community or their work. This is intended to be a positive evolution for all, and all attempts to turn it negative or otherwise derail it will be penalized swiftly.


That said, feel free to post your noms and thoughts, and let's have fun with this. Thanks, y'all, and happy RealGMing.

Also the correct answer to MVP is og15

Can we nominate additional (fun) categories?

Sorry if this might fall under "mocking" but this is one of the most memorable threads of the year.

So are we gonna start acknowledging Suns screw up big time?

Tbh I'm just gonna vote for myself in each category because no one else will.

Please leave the "PistolPeteJR" thread in the GB open for more than 5 minutes so that it becomes eligible and I can vote for it.

MVP has to go to Pharmcat for how hard he's worked this year creating more threads on his own than the rest of RealGM combined

That's a good award idea. We'll put it on an idea consideration list.

If a whole bunch of people seem to be behind a GB mod, I think we might have to allow it. Let the people speak, right?

LesGrossman wrote:You forgot the "defensive poster or the year" title?


What do you think the parameters for such an award should be?

I've rarely been so happy that an event wasn't being televised.

Dupp wrote:The awards are not intended to mock, criticize or attack posters?


No, but as it's stated in the GB forum rules, open mockery of Dupp is encouraged. And Sofia.

And that idiot Sammy.

This is an excellent strategy.

MVP: bisme37 and BenoUdrihFTL
big shoutout for being level-headed poster representatives for fan bases that are always at war on these boards.

MIP: OKCfanSinceSGA
Ever since joined the Thunder rebuild and abandoned the Clippers anxiety, seems truly like himself.

Ballboy of the year is tough. Pretty rare that someone establishes themselves quick on this site eh?

Will go through some old threads and add some nominations for those awards.
