    At long last we are able to announce the winners of the first Bi-Yearly GBAtemp Awards. From the nominations last month to the polls that have been running all this month you have chosen the members, sigs and games you think deserve these awards. The competition was fierce and I think everyone who contributes to the board deserves a big thank you from all the staff.

    Hope to see you all back here later in the year for more of the same!

    Thanks to KotaInka2 for suggesting this, as well as Saria who inspired the suggestion. Costello for jumping on the idea and really pushing this forward with the staff, the entire staff who formed and shaped how long, how many, and exactly what the categories would be, Broken by design for running the nominations and polls, Shaun and Opium for the awards, and a special thanks to all who participated, without you none of this would have happened.

    Next time, let's just make one called "The Tempest Stormwind Award" and give it to Tempest. I'm starting to think he's going to dominate these awards everytime... [​IMG]

    EDIT:
    Congratulations!

    ^^nice [​IMG]

    Congratulations everyone who was nominated/won/or just voted. You all made these awards possible [​IMG]

    Oh and those awards are meant to be wore in the winner's sigs that's what they were made for, so if you won one of the awards you can choose to attach it to your sig if you want, so it will have some sort of use [​IMG]

    On temporary hiatus.
    Well, I had planned to say at least "thank you" the instant this went up... but I found out my motherboard is corrupt and blammed my SECOND hard drive after only 2 months of use. So I'm left now typing on my mom's machine with it's really freakin' noisy keyboard, and my sensitive ears, so I'm going to be briefer than expected. I also just worked a very long, very late shift at a store I'm NOT familiar with (so I probably botched a lot and will eat it from my supervisor tomorrow)... so forgive me if I'm incoherent.

    Thanks are in order for several groups:
    -- Those who voted. Without you, this couldn't happen.
    -- Those who were nominated. All these votes would be meaningless without a target to hurl them against.
    -- All our winners. I don't need to give out more detail than this.
    -- Luse, KotaInka, Broken, Costello, Opium, Shaun, Saria and all the others who volunteered their time and effort into putting on round 1.

    Here's to round 2!

    ...now, to update my signature...

    [EDIT] And while I can't confirm it (mom throws a hissy fit if I switch her monitor from 800x600), it looks like I CAN fit the original 3 in my sig. The problem now is... am I over the height limit?
    Opium, I love the multi-award. Just because it's not in this particular iteration doesn't mean it's not appreciated or wanted -- expect a change soon.
