It's that time again! No, not to give your cat a flea bath (although it couldn't hurt to check). It's the annual Willie Lee McCovey Awards! Started by Salemicus back in the year Aught Six, it's the time where we recognize the wonderful people in our community and pat them on the backs. Maybe even a "man hug" if you're in the moment. Oh heck, why not, go in for a full on embrace. OK, got that out of your system? Cool. Let's do this thing.
The categories are:
A n00b who didn't act like a n00b. This person appeared out of nowhere and fit right in with the rest of this gang of misfits and lovable scamps. The cutoff date for new people would be between now and whenever the last award was given out.
Most Informative Poster
If you needed some prime info on a player or an explanation for some obscure statistic, he or she always had the answer.
Most Amusing Poster
Whenever you see one of this poster's comments, your monitor gets drenched with [beverage] from laughing uncontrollably, and everyone around you stares at you thinking you're insane.
Most Spirited Poster
Think of this as our version of the Willie Mac awards. This person exemplifies what the ideal McC poster is. Helpful, team player, all-around good guy, y'know, intangibles. Time to give them some props.
Best Image (Gameday thread)
This award is for an image that is mainly used for GDTs. For example, the Ks or player specific images. It can be something that was Photoshopped, a funny photo, or just something really cool that stuck with you. The McImages directory has a bunch of these.
Best Image (non-Gameday thread)
Any other image that's been posted.
Due to the enormous number of Fanposts we create, this category has three winners. This award is for the fanposts that made you think, challenged your opinions, or just gave you that warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Be sure to take a trip down memory lane and check out some of the older Fanposts, so those don't get neglected.
Alrighty, folks. Make your nominations. Once there are at least four for each one, I'll begin making Fanposts for the voting.
