    I axed the end of the year awards.

    And there will be no more of them in the future. I'm just really disgusted and ticked off by all of the crabbyness that they have recieved. Go out and get some fresh air, get out on a bike and ride who cares if it's 20 below and there is a foot of snow on the ground go out and do something. I am not mentioning names, since we all need to get out side and ride or do something in the fresh air. Loosen up, the cold air won't hurt you, this crabbyness and pissing and moaning will hurt you in the road ahead.

    Well, the year end awards were kind of fun. They weren't worth getting your shorts in a knot over, whether you were nominated, ignored, dissed or whatever. In the end, they were utterly inconsequential.

    They're gone?

    And I was really enjoying the show. Each time I looked, a new award popped up. Some of them right creative. But I guess this whole award thing was like an iceberg. Most of it was not in the open.

    Not to presume, but you seem to love everyone.

    Well, I was hoping to be most something-or-other next year. I'm still a legend in my own mind....

    Always treading the line between good and bad. I have to side with DF on the negative awards*. I didn't agree with DF on setting up the over-50s forum, and I will stir him up occasionally on it. But I haven't really found him as curmudgeonly as some on these forums. And I think he knows that I am only stirring him up because I am not actively campaigning for the 50s forum's removal. I think he also was instrumental in setting up the Recreational Cycling forum. Perhaps dues to him for actually making a contribution to the structure of BF instead of heaping unwarranted ***** on him.

    The awards this year degenerated into a rabble. Not Kona's fault. Not DF's fault. Probably partly mine and every other poster who put up cr@p comments. Had the voting been just that -- votes without comment -- we might have got somewhere.

    There's no reason why the awards cannot be reconsituted next year with some very solid rules --no negative categories; nominations period; nominations received and seconded and sent by PM to a designated mod; posting of maximum of five nominations for votes only; no comment. Alternatively, have the mods receive the nominations and decide between themselves (after all, they know more about each member than any of us); and there can be a vox-pop poll for people's choice.

    * Put this in perspective by reading 521Aussie's post on Forum Suggestions under the Insults Thread.

    By the way, it doesn't mean I won't be harsh on imbeciles, trolls and other assorted idiots who should know better. There'd be no fun being a member here, otherwise.

    ok - this whole event is really sad. Really sad.
    Glad it came to this. Thanks for the brief glimpse of sunlight, I am going back to the FX/SS forums. Now you know why I stay in there like a hermit.

    sounds like more work than needed for something that is commonly meant for fun. I howled at the fact that I recommended MORRISSEY for Most Charming and the Inanimate Carbon Rod as member of the year and they made the cut. Kona is a stand up Mod for being so inclusive, even if he rides a geared bike... I say dump them completely if so many rules need to be implemented. Are we going to afternoon tea with the Brontes? Or Oscar Wilde?
    I choose the latter. And cucumber sandwiches...

    So many rules? What are you talking about? Has the hermit life made you *that* simple? Better than the bloody rabble it degenerated into with rules (yes rules!!!) made on the run.

    And your choice of author isn't particulary supportive of your argument. Wilde was a highly regarded and recognised writer. Maybe the contributions of some on these forums needs a bit of positive recognition. The sort of recognition Wilde yearned for, IIRC, at times during his career.

    Arrghh, go back to hole you came from. Shame. I think I might have voted for your avatar.

    1. Make room in the hole - you're there too.
    2. Wow - a forum vote for an image I jacked. I should care why? Or is this some weak form of an attempt to sway sympathy?
    At any level, feel free to email me to further discuss this

    the author comment - you sure about that? Like I said, use the email address to discuss.

    While I don't agree with KonaRider24's actions, I must commend him for having the cajonees to claim his actions.

    While we're busy making rules, I'd like to make a motion for a new rule that when a MOD makes any edits to a post or thread, (Deleting content or thread, locking a thread or moving it) that they MUST annotate said post or thread with their username and reason for doing so.

    Any seconds?

    maybe.
    Sometimes there just isn't time to discusss what we did and why.
    Personally I don't want to have to justify my actions every time I
    (we) delete threads from Spammers.
    If I mess in a thread, delete stuff etc. I will usually say so. Sometimes
    tho I prefer to do this in a PM as to not air someones dirty laundry in public.
