    You knew they were coming and here they are! The 2004 Gman250.net Awards are carefully selected winners of various awards, brought to you annually, every September. :D

    The first winner on our list is:
    Trienish
    Trienish is the winner of Least Annoying, Gloomist Xanga Site, Poster of the Year, and Topic of the Year.

    Hayes was able to feed some life into my website. His posts are never ever annoying and he is able to make witty and clever responces. He pays attention to detail and only posts when necessary. His Xanga site might be the gloomiest, but his style of writing and content are exceptional. He also wins Poster of the Year for having a total of 1,895 out of 12,233 total posts, exceeding Randal, and almost catching up to me. His last award for the night is Topic of the Year, for starting the famous “Gameday 2003 (Not that aful football game)”, weighing in at a total of 6 pages and 3,237 of the 12,233 board posts.

    Our next winner is:
    Ranman311
    Ranman311 is the winner of I Have A Website?, Happiest Xanga Site, Message Board Section of the Year, and the Mr. Lucky Award.

    Randal, the approved “King of the Board”. His member site was created back around 2001, and still remains an internet landmark today, although it only gets updated maybe twice a year, if that. He also walks away with the Happiest Xanga Site. This was a little difficult to pick, since most of everyones Xanga’s are emo and depressing, Randy managed to use bright colors, party recaps, and hulkmania. Randy is also the owner of “Ranman’s Song of the Day” which lands him the Board Section of the Year award for having the most posts of any other section. Finally, the Mr. Lucky Award goes to him for winning the most of my little contests and quizzes.

    Next on the guest list is:
    Weirfan66
    Weirfan66 is the winner of Best Xanga Gimmick/Personalization, Most Understandable, Best Message Board Content, and Best Off-Site Webpage.

    Weirfan66 is the board’s official Spellbinder, when Squier is at large, or someone is at fault, he is always there to serve and correct. Representing the Rutger’s, the Binder of Spelling walks away tonight with Best Xanga Gimmick/Personalization award for “Crunching Numbers”. Number Crunching caused the most feedback and was quite entertaining. Most Understandable award goes to Joe for always using proper grammar and structure even when it isn’t really necessary. Best Message Board Content also goes to Joe for “Mango Madness” and its plethora of wonderful haikus. Finally, Best Off-Site Webpage, for Joe’s old Angelfire website before Xanga started.

    Going down the list, we have:
    UltimaLink
    UltimaLink is the winner of Most Annoying, Member Website of the Year, and Most Times Banned In A Single Year.

    UltimaLink is unknown to most people year, for a kid I met randomly and despite his annoying nature, he has helped and added some cool content here on the site. He wins Member Website of the year for UltimaLink.tk. Lots of GameFAQs and other bandwidth problems later, he’s been banned about 4-5 times this past year, so he walks away with some interesting awards to hang next to his master sword. UltimaLink gets the honor of knowing that he recruited Kess who was the quickest member to get banned for posting a pr0n video and linking it. Took about a few hours before he got banned.

    Our next contestant on the Price is Right is:
    Squiergfx
    Squier is the winner of Worst Message Board Content and Least Understandable.

    Squier hit the jackpot this award ceremony. His first award is for “Squiergfx’s Swirling Torrent of Retardation” pulling in the least amount of posts compared to all the others. He also wins Least Understandable award for talking in one long sentence and not tpying correctltltly and never using any perisods or any type of puncautnation so that joe geTs night mares at night… you get the point. Squier also had the glory of recruiting c00ki3 who is now banned. Congrats.

    Don’t look now, it’s time for:
    Yaeger
    When Yaeger is not playing FFXI, he is the winner of Worst Xanga Gimmick/Personality, Most Time Spent On A Horrible Game, and Most Random Message Board Section.

    Yaeger, yaeger, yaeger. On Yaeger’s Xanga, you can find him levelling down, in which there is no reward. Random complaints about college and family and lack of posts lately scored him the Worst Gimmick. Most Time Spent On A Horrible Game, you can look at this award in 2 ways. FFXI is a hard game to level up in, and Yaeger is a pretty high level, logging in the most time and becoming a strong asset to the Ifrit server. On the other hand, look at all that time you spent on a boring game. Yaeger’s Happy Fun Time is entertaining and half the time, quite random on what kind of content gets put in there.

    Ruffles and jellybeans:
    Foxxy
    Foxxy is the winner of: Most Artistic and Best Avatar.

    Most people here don’t like Foxxy’s company, but I do. He’s never pushed the server or people too much to the point where he had to be banned, and he’s created many photoshop works of art and animations to land him an award. Best Avatar goes to Foxxy for having that one with Mike Ha, and having no knowledge of Mike Ha at all. Props to Foxxy for recruiting SilverLogic to the board as well.

    Wow, thank you:
    ShiznitBeast
    ShiznitBeast is the winner of: Best Abandoned Idea

    Dave had a good thing going with his quotes. Although his posting has been somewhat slim lately, his lack of posting landed him this award.

    Your mom, I mean… Who?:
    Co0bs
    Co0bs is the winner of: Funniest Message Board Section and Lazy Award.

    Carlos lands the Funniest Message Board Section award for “Coobs Brings The Ownage!” and his pictures and randomness. He also wins the Lazy Award for most speratic message board posts and random Xanga updating.

    The other award winners are as follows:
    Boss429 Greatest Comeback Creation
    [ex]terLeast Amount of Posts

    …and Kano wherever you are, I’ll give you an award if you come back.

    Well that concludes our little ceremony, congratulations to all the contestants!
    Until next year…

    You forgot about…

    Gman250
    Gman250 is the winner of Web Uniter, Ness Master, Message Board of the Year, and the highly coveted Webmaster of the Year.

    Well, what else can you say about Gary except he’s the top dog around here. I may be king, but he is GOD. Gman gets the Web Uniter award for using the internet to keep all of us good friends despite people living far away. If last year Amplitude reigned supreme, then this year was undoubtedly the summer of the Melee. In this wonderful multiplayer mayhem, everyone had “their boy”, but it was one man with one character and one baseball bat that had us all in tears laughing so hard. Gary, you are definitely the Ness Master. Message Board of the Year is no contest because no matter who makes the best posts or who has the best section (cough… sotd… cough… i rule), we all have to face the facts that the name at the top of the board is gman250. Even if we all stop posting and the board dies, Gman’s still there with a can of beans beckoning us to come back and it is through him that we see the light and return to our favorite internet hang out. Finally, the top prize out of all the awards…. Gary…. YOU ARE THE WEBMASTER OF THE YEAR! I don’t know if everyone realizes the shit Gary goes through to maintain this server and keep us happy, but if you don’t you should get a clue. He unselfishly provides us with all of this and next time I see him I’m gonna give him a huge slap on the ass (not that I wouldn’t have anyway).

    For all your hard work Gman, I give you your trophy…

    I think there should be some other categories too, summing up the rest of the year.

    Best Gimmick Poster: Nelly

    Worst Board Idea: Xanga War

    Best Idea Never Completed: The Passion of the Ha: The Musical

    I was thinking of maybe doing best ownage…but there’s so much to choose from…

  • #13633

    WTF! You can’t give Foxy an award and not me! I know I don’t post much, but if that troll won something then I sure as hell should, too!! :evil:

    Part of the reason you won something was for not getting banned. You got an award for that stupid avatar…which you should’ve been banned for! I should get an award for pwning you at every opportunity you give me.

    Ugh…dammit Ha, this isn’t Stardestroyer.net. When someone does something to you on here you don’t wait for Michael Wong to come along and make things better. On this board, you get revenge on a person you don’t like. So either come up with some revenge, or just take the abuse.

  • #13648

    You don’t know shit about SDnet except for the fact that it contains a massive amount of dorks. Mike Wong has never “come along and made things better” for me. Can you blame me for being angry that Foxy won an award, for making fun of me no less? As for revenge, what the hell do you suggest I do? I make fun of Foxy at every chance I get anyway.

    Oh, and the “Huge” font on this board is pathetically small.

    Which is like once a month, because you hardly ever post. Even though I don’t like him either, Foxxy didn’t do anything to deserve getting banned. If you want an award next year, you better get to posting.

  • #13653

    I make fun of Foxy every chance I get. I actually show up here quite often and just don’t post because he hasn’t set himself up to be knocked down and because you guys aren’t talking about anything I care about.

    And Foxy fucking deserves to be banned. He was spamming, trolling, and making blatant attacks on another member of the board. You guys are just so used to dumbasses like him and Nelly here that it seems okay to you.

    If people were banned for making fun of others, I would have been gone a long time ago. You don’t ban people for being trolls and annoying (unless they’re Cooki3). You annoy them and make fun of them until they leave.

    There’s a difference between making fun of others and the crap guys like Foxxy do. All emoticon posts and the massive amounts of spam he makes for example. And there’s a difference between random insults like you do and totally altering one’s avatar over a stupid grudge. And just how many people have been riddiculed off this board, anyway? Foxxy, Nelly, Squir, and Ultima were all still here last I checked.

    However, I am aware that I was indeed being mega bitchy yesterday and I would like to apologize for that. While I still think Foxxy doesn’t deserve to be able to post here, let alone get an award, I’m sorry for flipping out over you guys going off topic on that other thread and for being nasty and bitchy.

    Ha, I have a few things to say…

    1. You’re awesome.

    2. I’m sorry that you didn’t get an award, you’re posting a lot more lately, which is awesome. But if I went back to give you an award, you’d win the “Best Ownage” award, because ownage from you is amplified by like a billion and a half.

    3. Foxxy wouldn’t last 5 minutes on your StarDestroyer.net board, but here, he stays because it’s that much more fun.

    I shall end this with a happy emoticon. :D Oh man!

    There are 81 registered members to the board. How many of those people post occasionally, ten, fifteen? Do the math Ha, that’s alot of people we’ve driven away. Off the topic of my head, we’ve driven off Cooki3, Omegaman, KillgoreTCD, and you might want to include Silverlogic on there too, since he only posts when someone mentions Halo. How can you possibly hate Nelly anyway?

    Yes, you see, it’s a new phrase I came up with. It means the exact same thing as “top of my head” but I change the first word of the phrase to make it seem less clichė. Catcher my drift?

    There are tons of registered users, and I am guessing some of them just did it to read the posts here. The rest were asked to join here, posted once (or not at all), and never posted again.
    Thus, it just leads to the small croud that makes this message board as a whole.

    Lately, it’s all been arguments. I think that’s a reason it is not as fun as it used to be. Sure, Trien and you guys get your kicks out of owning the random person once every few weeks, but that is just not enough anymore to make the board enjoyable anymore.

    Gman, thank you. In the future I shall endevour to post more so as to deserve that best ownage award you spoke of next time the awards cerimony comes along.

    And Hayes, your point about having driven people away is valid, but didn’t you guys ban cooki3? It’s no big deal, I was just wondering. As for how I can hate Nelly, I really don’t. I just wanted another example and I don’t think I’ve ever seen Nelly post anything except random crap.
