For these ones, I'm using the list from the first official awards but wiuth some slight editing. I also removed all the old awards specifically for one person. Those awards a re generally out of date, so for person specific awards you must start from scratch. That's where all the fun is though, eh.

Previous winners are listed on the original thread, here.

Winners are chosen by public consensus. You can anoint yourself but you still need some degree of consensus for it to be official.

Feel free to nominate en masse in your posts.

Edit: Also feel free to disagree with existing nominations. The person might not get the award, but can be listed as a nominee. Meaning, y'know, they still get some cred. e.g. three people say nebu is the prominent aussie, 1 say Curse, 1 say Noogie. The award would read:

PostPosted: Mon Jun 20, 2011 11:38 pm
You should make a category for "worst speller" so I can nominate Hawkings.

I'm going to nominate myself for "most inoffensively secular" because I don't recall offending anyone religious with my secular views, for the fact that my atheism rarely comes into play.

Japan-o-phile. It's an anime forum, so I figure I might as well chuck it in there.
