(You didn't think I would let this tradition die did ya?)
Rumours of both H!P and MM-BBS's death have been greatly exaggerated, and as such the end of the year has come and gone and we are left with a (mostly) clean new board and a lot of evaporated memories. Thanks a lot, A2. So let's revive these dead thoughts and let them haunt the forum like Scrooge on a Christmas eve: it's Award time motherfuckers!
I'm sure most of you remember how we do things from the last... What is it, four times already? Huh, really? Amazing. Anyway, just in case you don't or you're new around here, let me explain the basics.
Step 1: Nominate
I'll make a bunch of threads for various categories, such as "best album" and "best PV" and so on. Nominate whatever you feel like in every category, as long as it basically makes sense. The basic idea is that the release/activity took place in 2008, but I'm not going to be too picky about it. Just don't try to nominate Tanpopo or something, cause I'll know and I'll come over and kill you. For added entertainment value AS WELL AS to make this thing more fun, I'd strongly suggest writing a bit about your nomination since it's kinda pointless to just read a list of names. Seconding nominations is valuable since there's a limit of 6 "finalists" per category, so don't worry about whether something has already been mentioned before and just write how you feel about it. Nominating multiple things is also allowed and encouraged, though if you nominate 500 things your forehead might meet the business end of a chainsaw before the end of the year.
Step 2: Vote
Also known as the boating round, this is the easy bit for you guys (and a pain in the ass for me, so be grateful you bastards): a bunch of polls will go up and you simply vote on your favorite item. Or complain that your favorite isn't in the list even though you were too late in nominating and therefore it was your own fault to begin with.
Step 3: Wait for the results
Traditionally it takes me about a month to get the results ready because I'm lazy and stupid. So this is an important step!
Step 4: Result...s
After everything has been added up and put together, I'll do a little award ceremony-esque thing. After that you can discuss the result and lament the abominable taste of the masses.
That's all there is to it! I'll start making nomination threads later today (still have to think up some categories ), but yeah. This thread can be used for any questions or complaints as well as general discussion. If I missed an important category or something, talk about it here!
