    ACHIEVEMENT AWARD 2017

    We start with the thread dedicated to this prestigious award.
    Who deserves to join the clubhouse of the brotherhood of the creme de la creme?
    This is where democracy works, and you vote.


    Past Winners:
    Themanofbat
    TheCorpulent1
    The Lizard
    Hunter Rider
    Aunt Petunia/Franklin Richards
    C. Lee
    Dew K. Mosi

    Now remember guys and gals; don't vote for any of these individuals listed again for this award.

    EDIT: I know KRYPTON INC. is a high quality poster, but the Achievement committee decrees that to be worthy, one's account also needs to be at least a decade old.

    I nominate MessiahDecoy123 as he will hit the decade mark this coming January therefore he should qualify.

    I also nominate Squeekness because being here that long, posting as much as she does with 0 infractions truly is astounding. It speaks volumes to her character.

    Reek has elevated himself above the likes of mere mortals like Donald Trump. He should be exempt from not being able to win twice because told me he's so unbelievably, incredibly great that not only does he deserve recognition again, but that he should win twice this year.

    Not only should I win twice this year... a vote for me should count as 2.

    I am doubly better than most people... in bigly ways.

    Reek is part of the club already, and I placed a big fat notice below the list of previous winners.



    Now remember guys and gals; don't vote for any of these individuals listed again for this award.

    EDIT: That list already includes Reek

    UPDATE:

    The AWARDS COMMITTEE will be voting for VARTHA!!!

    Please vote for someone else.

    Thanks. :yay:

    -------------------

    Is it simply by vote this year only? Or will the Committee pick one?

    If there's an honorary pick, then we should give it to Vartha, in my opinion, and let the folks nominate someone else.

    I nominate the following users

    Donald_Thomas
    CantThinkOfAName

    Nomination time is over. PM your choice for this award by picking one of the nominated or a write-in choice, vote on polls for the rest.

    And winners of this award will probably be as usual; one won by votes, another chosen by the committee, and perhaps a third one like last year where the committee also choose someone who no longer posts but left a great memory on the Hype.

    Donald Thomas!

    Many many MANY years ago, he sent me a bunch of comics on a disc because I had corrected him on something. This was back around 2004. He's a stand up guy.

    Vartha needs to be given the award via Committee (as we've done in the past billion years), and the others can win via the vote. (again, as we've done in the past).

    As it stands, it'll be unfair to the others if Vartha wins, and it'll seem depressing if Vartha doesn't.

    Just my opinion, but I fail to understand why there were these rather unnecessary changes to Hype Lifetime Achievement this year.

    It's always been two winners, one by vote, one by Committee.

    And the Committee, mostly made up of mods (past and present) typically give the award to a mod because you guys are a tight knit group that hang and chill in the VIP Washroom... and you all knew Vartha in a more intimate setting than any of us, seeing as he was a mod as well... look at the current vote (25% of the votes are from moderators all directed at the mod in the poll), which is also an unfair advantage to the regular nominees.

    So I say give it to Vartha (Committee choice), and the poll winner.
    This is the way it's always been done.

    I had to check, but yeah... one "active" poster, and one "former" poster... weird...
    But both squeeks and Drakon were Committee picks last year

    I guess by that model, Vartha could always be one of the 2. But, that's a committee thing, LOL.

    The Committee was formed back in 2011 (5 years after the Lifetime Award was created), and since then, we've picked Dew (2011), Matt (2012), Erz (2013), 'Fire (2014), Spoons (2015), squeeks and Drakon (2016)...

    I fail to understand why the Committee is not in play this year, unless Spider-Aziz didn't have access to the Committee Forum...

    In any event, the Committee would all vote for Vartha...
    That's a NO BRAINER considering...
