I think it's about time for the ever popular McAwards. Started way back in 2006 by Salemicus, the McCoveys recognize those posters whose tireless dedication, hard work, and lack of social lives help to make McCovey Chronicles into the greatest website known to mankind. There is no real prize for winning one of these awards, just the smug satisfaction that you're better than someone else in a fake award on the internet. Sounds great!
The categories are:
Most Informative Poster
Most Amusing Poster
Best Image (Gameday thread)
Best Image (non-Gameday thread)
Most Spirited Poster
I think we decided to name the awards after the previous year's winners, but I'm too lazy to type that all out. I suggest naming the newcomer award after Keiichi Yabu because of the professionalism, class, and Yabulog that he contributed to the team in his first year with the Giants.
I think we added bonus categories last year like Best Diary of the Year (I guess that'd be Fanpost now). We could have categories for the best Fanshots and Fanposts of the year. More suggestions for categories are welcome.
Once there are enough nominations for five or six candidiates, voting will start in separate Fanposts. (This seems like something that'd be perfect for Fanshots, but Fanshots don't allow polls.) Maybe we'll have the results just in time for the end of the World Series. So, make your nominations people. Remember, those who won last year are not eligible for the respective categories in which they won. For images, they had to have popped up for the first time during the '08 season. Now then, let's get nominating!
