A few months back, HarvardorBust suggested that we should do an annual WSO Posters Awards night to recognize those who have either helped, or set back the community in whatever way and while a lot supported the idea, after much fanfare it pretty much just died.
Well, I thought we should resurrect the matter to see how it works out this time around.
I agree with what Gekko21 said, assuming that they’re up to it; a nominations committee of around 10 to 20 of the top posters should be gathered. Who they are and how they’ll be chosen I leave to you.
The voting system:
Once again Gekko21 was right on the money on this.
“In addition to the panel discussing amongst themselves, ordinary users may post suggestions to the panel. Once the panel decides on the top5 for each category, everyone gets 1 vote regardless of if you are on the panel.”
I think this is great, but if you have other suggestions it would be very much welcomed.
It would’ve been awesome if Blastoise or Happypantsmcgee could do this, but then again this would lead to formatting problems. Initially I thought this would be a great segment for NSFW, but that would also mean unnecessary work for the guys so I think we should keep things simple. Unless, of course they’re up to it.

Those were simply the awards suggested, if you would like to add or subtract anything from the list then feel free to suggest.
We're already way behind for a 2010 awards night, so lets get this ball rolling.
