    Worst part is, I got a terrible memory when it comes to names. Some of you out there are going to be missed from nomination. It's the bane of my existence. Someone please remind us of 2016 and the ones who deserve to be on the list.

    ~Wille
    Thorolf was thus armed. Then Thorolf became so furious that he cast his shield on his back, and, grasping his halberd with both hands, bounded forward dealing cut and thrust on either side. Men sprang away from him both ways, but he slew many. Thus he cleared the way forward to earl Hring's standard, and then nothing could stop him. He slew the man who bore the earl's standard, and cut down the standard-pole. After that he lunged with his halberd at the earl's breast, driving it right through mail and body, so that it came out at the shoulders; and he lifted him up on the halberd over his head, and planted the butt-end in the ground. There on the weapon the earl breathed out his life in sight of all, both friends and foes. [...] 53, Egil's Saga
    I must tell you here of some amusing tricks the Comte d'Eu played on us. I had made a sort of house for myself in which my knights and I used to eat, sitting so as to get the light from the door, which, as it happened, faced the Comte d'Eu's quarters. The count, who was a very ingenious fellow, had rigged up a miniature ballistic machine with which he could throw stones into my tent. He would watch us as we were having our meal, adjust his machine to suit the length of our table, and then let fly at us, breaking our pots and glasses.
    - The pranks played on the knight Jean de Joinville, 1249, 7th crusade.

    I noticed I was nominated for the TWC Moderation award. I'm honoured of course, but I wonder if this category includes Local Moderators?

    No it doesn't

    However, an IMPORTANT NOTICE: everybody posting nominations, please check carefully the rule about the Fastest Rising Newb, as I'm noticing various invalid ones; for the records, only members who have registred from January the 1st 2014 or later can be nominated for this award.

    I had a sneaky suspicion this would be the case. So that would mean that Elvenkind and me will not be competing there and I can skip my plan to nominate Ngugi in this category.

    Ah, sometimes this place is just like the real world, much work and little rewards. Well, I guess that goes for most of us.

    Don't tell me

    However, this award was dedicated exclusively to site moderators since the first time AFAIK, so no surprises here.

    It would be good to explain why you nominated your nominees. I think I'm going to do that so everyone votes as I do.

    Although giving reasonings is not specifically forbid by the rules, it is stated that the Nomination threads is for nominations ONLY, which means that anything different from that (included this post of yours that I moved here and included any reasoning for the nominations themselves) will be deleted or moved. You are free to nominate whomever you want as long as the nominations fall within the rules, but you are not allowed to advocate for others to nominate someone (not publicly at least).
    The best you can do in this sense is to make other people aware of the awards and invite them to participate, by nominating the people they like; if they frequent the same areas as you, I'm pretty sure they will end up nominating indipendently someone you already nominated yourself.

    The easiest work-around to this is obviously to just nominate people that are self-evidently awesome, so no further elaboration is required.

    Could I enquire why there isn't an award for something along the lines of "Person who has contributed most to modding"?
    I'd like to nominate Mr.Jox for such an award for his RMV2 Converter and tutorial on how to add custom animated bows but there isn't really a category this nomination would fit under.

    Any chance of this position being made for future years, or suggestions for which current category could fit?

    We already have the mod awards to laud modders and modding contributions.

    As lolI said, this is related to the Modding Awards, not the Member Awards. Modding Awards will be held sometimes during Fabruary and this year we will include some new categories to expand the possibility of nominations. However, if you feel like that that specific member has been very helpful with something (a tool, a tutorial, etc) you can still nominate him for the most helpful member category here in the Member Awards.

    not really, 2016 Modding Awards will be held soon during early 2017, as said above

    I guess it depends if we consider the "job" as a Content one or not
    If yes, then they can be nominated in that section.
    If not, I guess that the "Most Helpful Member" section will do.
    Just my thought
