    The mods realized it'd be unfair to, cause I'd win both, hands down

    I think the award for that is a ban.

    It may be.

    In what year were the awards suppressed?, I was really un aware of that fact. Then again, I'm un aware of many facts around here.

    I can think of a few people more deserving for that reward.

    Over there.
    I searched and found a thread from last year, but didn't really see anything else. GBAtemp awards would be cool, if they existed again (although I wasn't here a year ago).

    yeah the temp awards were great and it would be cool if they came back maybe even make a vote thing instead of letting the mods/admins decide

    We've got some other little things lined up for the festivities. I do remember the awards though. Perhaps we can run them again in January? They take a while to prepare and organise and we are already busy drinking mugs full of grog, so........

    Well, that would be democratic. However, this site is slowly filling up with abusing, spamming morons, when the masses are stupid, democracy isn't actually the best answer.

    You know, communism isn't the opposite of democracy, autocratic centralistic monarchy is the opposite of democracy [​IMG]

    Back on topic. With the GBATEMP store open, there could be some actual, tangible rewards for winners, eh? Hint hint hint [​IMG]

    Nudge nudge.

    Dictatorship is pretty autocratic.

    Tournaments are always at some weird ungodly hours when I'm either asleep, at college, or at work. Even my l33t skillz are somewhat diminished at 3 am. [​IMG]

    The last awards faltered at the last step. Kyoji decreed that there were not enough votes or something.
