Welcome to Gaia! ::

Not too fond of some of the nominees, but I'll vote for the best one anyway. I feel that some of the siggy/post style nominees should be the person that made it for them

To keep things a bit more neutral, there should be a staff alert about the event.

That way it isn't just the GCD and friends of those nominated voting. >>


Agreed. If people aren't alerted, they might get annoyed that they didn't get a chance to vote.

Once we have tallied all the votes, we'll announce the winners of the 1st Annual GaiAcademy Awards. This is a super-special contest as the fabulous Gaia art team has created a brand new item just for this occasion - a beautiful golden statuette to commemorate your win that you can equip and cherish! You could be one of the first people to own this lovely statuette item, and since they will (as far as we can tell) only be given out during the GaiAcademy Awards, winning one will let you have a super rare item of your own!

To go along with your golden statuette item, your GaiAcademy Award, you'll also receive some....gold! Each winner will also receive a 500,000 Gaia gold prize. A very memorable prize pack indeed!

This prize pack will also be won by the person who nominated the winner, so don't be shy about sending in your nominations! You could score a rare trophy and some gold!

As far as the best avatar categories, how does that work? Are we voting on who makes the best in general or the avatars listed on the thread?

I'm confused at that because some of those are wearing items that were released after the December whatever 2012 deadline. It doesn't seem right to not have the actual nominated avatars.

Dude.

DUDE.

You guys should totally click on that daily chance box. It has a lucky rabbit in it.

Seriously though. Way cool to be nominated. And good luck to everyone!

I honestly thought that if I was going to be nominated, it wasn't for my avi. I had hoped for the master lists. Still, very cool.

Not everyone provided screenshots of avatars, so we took the best of the ones nominated and which were available at the time. As for the gender-based (male or female) nominations, sometimes people shift gender or dress up as another gender - gender is a fluid concept! We selected based on appearance of the avatar and general avatar-base.

At any rate, we tried our best with a very imprecise process! There are going to be bugs the first time you try anything. Not to worry, we'll work on refining things as this award contest evolves. biggrin

The link I gave above will have the voting link in its OP. Make sure to read everything.

PS: I am in this contest, but I am making sure to use a mule (aka incognito and sneaky).
I don't want to tamper with the results. I just thought the GeeCeeDee should be aware of this.

ho hoho ho ho 34 of my nominations got in twisted

thank you to whoever nominated gino x meili crying i told sisky i use a female base, though i preferably consider my non-body avatars to be genderless.

/breaks gender confines!!

it sort of feels like not a lot of people nominated stuff though xd I mean, even one of those categories are empty of nominees crying i should've nominated an international thread *snaps fingers* dang.


It was interesting because some categories had many, many nominations (so many it gave us eye-strain going through everything eek ) and others not so many! I guess the real Academy Awards must be like this too. Some categories just have more potential selections 3nodding

So... I don't think Weird Fox's "Comedic Post" was actually supposed to be comedic. :/


I don't think so either, but still it was funny in its own way and made a lot of people laugh! I think he has a good sense of humor though, and can see why it might have been hilarious to some 3nodding

We're not cruel people here - sometimes things are just unintentionally funny! If we were cruel, well, let's just say we would have put up at least one other nominated post because of the hilarity that ensued after it was posted. Nominating it, though, would have been cruel, so we didn't put it in there. We like to have fun with you all, and sometimes we tease, but we try not to ever be mean-spirited in our fun. biggrin
