Apparently, these run every year and I've just seen them mentioned in the League 2 Forum and was wondering if anyone's interested in running them (I probably shouldn't because I'm too new). That being said, if nobody is interested I don't mind doing it.

Fuck it, if no-one else can be arsed I'll do it. Just need to finalise the awards and then I'll start taking PM's, here's a list off the top of my head (and from other sections) - feel free to add any I missed and if someone could try and find past awards by cache that would be great.

Best Step 1 Poster
Best Step 2 Poster
Best Step 3 and below Poster
Most Knowledgeable Poster
Least Knowledgeable Poster
Best Set of Fans
Worst Set of Fans
Best Match Reports
Funniest Poster
Least Funny Poster
Worst Poster

Most Deluded Member

Thread of the Year

Most Optimistic Member
Best Newcomer (Joined in August 2014 or later)
Member of the Year

Right, the list seems done and dusted so I'm going to set the deadline for 12 PM Sunday 26th April. Anyone can vote no matter who they support, and you don't have to vote for every category. You may vote 2 people for one award, and they will receive half a vote each. You've got just under 3 weeks, as many people as possible get your votes in by PM to me please.

Well volunteered! ;)

Can't remember who did it last year? Was it Joe? I can't remember that categories either.

We never had the pint award in the non-league awards but I think it would be a welcomed inclusion. Well volunteered Cardsfan, set us a deadline and then I'll send in a PM.

Going to be a pain, can you please pin this DarkSithLord?

I'll set a deadline when the list of awards is finalised. Any I'm missing?

Think you've got them all but I'm there to be shot down. Best match reports is a new one too.

We actually had it before. I know because I was nominated for it! (think Alty won) Might have been a while back that we last ran that one though, I was certainly posting for the old club at the time (might have been the season we went under, or even the one before).

Edit: The only one not on there that I know we used to use is "Biggest WUM", which I think is both a silly award to give out, potentially rewarding "wumming" as it was referred to. Rather run without it!

Old rules were always vote for as many or few categories as you like, but more votes is generally better.

Before my time then Jemfy (possibly, I signed up in 2011). Last year's awards received a minimal number of votes from memory, with this forum as active as I've ever known it, it would be fantastic to have a high number of lists sent in.

I think it's not going to be too hard. A long open period for voting. No need to rush it. Go until after the playoff final! Not like we're bursting with information once the season has finished!

Well I think most postyers' opinions of other postyers would be pretty well formed by now. I certainly have a good idea of who to vote for in some of these categories already!

I run this the season before last. I think I got like three awards.

Did agree to do it last year but didn't have the time in the end so Red Dragon the Newport fan took over.

Well volunteered mate. I'll send some votes over at some point before the deadline.

I'm sure we had a pint one before (maybe not last year)... I vividly remember saying I'd like to go for a beer with Jared.

Btw, best newcommer... aren't we all new to 1FF? :doh:
I've seen it on other forums where for this section, they class it as fans of the new teams to the league. So Rovers, Torquay and the teams that got promoted etc

Nope, people who joined TFF after August or were new on here. A few candidates off the top of my head- Cardsfan, :pond: cant think of any others at the minute.

Normally someone posts a list of eligible posters for such an award. It sometimes got defined both ways with the logic of "new to NL section" though that would discount fans of teams promoted who were already here.

I'm going to bump this as the lists coming in have dried up somewhat. The deadline is in 2 weeks for those who are interested.
