Welcome one and all, to the Center Awards 2013.
As with last year
, the main consideration for these awards is to have fun!
Considering where we were a few short years ago, the ongoing success of The Center is something well worth celebrating. We have The Gathering
coming up next year, Does This Game Suck?
launched, finally offering an excellent off-forum complement to our message board, and Mafia is still... um... still going strong? :umyeah:
Basically, there is a lot to celebrate - but most of all, you guys
. The Center wouldn't exist if it wasn't for our awesome memberbase, and that is what we are here to celebrate.
I will be resuming some of my Historical Look-backs
, time dependent, and as with last time I will be looking to post the results as the New Year turns.
1) Everybody take part!
I want a concentrated effort to bring back lapsed members and get everyone involved. Is there someone you've missed lately? Invite them back! Hit up Facebook, email, PMs, etc. Are you a lurker who only posts once a month? No problem! PM me your votes, you're still a member in our eyes :)
2) Positivity! Positivity! Positivity!!
I wrote up a pretty extensive run-down of winners and nominees last year, but I've been a bit absent during my tumultuous 2013 so I need your help! Feel free to just vote using names, but if you have reasons for your votes, please let me know :) remember, keep it positive!
Below are the nomination categories. You can submit anywhere between zero
nominations per category! If submitting more than one nomination, please indicate who or what is your top choice.
PM me your nominations
and the winners will be revealed in due course!! All nominations must be received by Thursday 26th December
- I want to give everyone plenty of time to get their votes in (and harrass our lurkers to get their votes in too).
There may be something interesting for the winners this year ;)
