Purpose of the awardsEdit
The purpose is obviously to cause the winners to feel good about themselves and the non-winners to.. not feel better. People say it's not a form of elitism, rather just an exciting contest to vote on.
The ASDF Awards are given in several different categories, these include the following:
- Friendliest member
- Most random member
- Most contributive and helperness member
- Most delving into ASDF-ism member
- Best art
- Newcomer of the Year (became a regular category in 2010)
- Guest category*
The guest category is a category that is different each year:
|2008||Most Annoying Member|
|2009||Newcomer of the Year|
The first Awards were held in 2007, there were only five categories then.
The process of choosing a winner consists of two elections. First everyone nominates three users for each category, then when the nominations are over, the three nominated users of each category are published, and everyone votes for one of the three, in each category. After a voting period, the results are displayed and the awards are given to the winners.
The rewardsEditWinners get free cookies, Extra Deluxe Special Pat-On-The-Back™ 2000, $100000 Internet Money,
life insurance for a year (active for your online entity while on ASDF Forums, in safe conditions), an island in an ocean of choice on a planet of choice in a solar system of choice on a sheet of paper of choice, some junk, a cake in the face (don't tell anyone), oh, and the award picture. The winners are then allowed to put their superific award reward pictures in their forum signatures so that all the world can see.The superific award reward pictures in 2007 and 2008 were made by W/E, and all the rest since then were made by ThingerDudes.
Award categories that didn't make it for nominationEdit
