    Well the Awards have come and gone, some of you were happy with how it went, some of you weren't. The only way to improve what worked and what didn't is to take this directly to you guys and ask you what you'd like to see added or removed from the next GBAtemp Awards...

    I dont think we should have it at all, after all, we are all equal in the end.

    is not that bad the thing.

    one thing you have to do for sure is separating members and mods in the categories. it's likely that mods are voted for instead of members, especially because they are better known... and... who knows... because of their bulgy badges [​IMG]

    Yeah a few members suggested that and I'd have to agree with them. There is a best mod award I suppose and some generic awards such as Funniest Poster/Best Sig + Ava but awards such as Nicest Member and Member of the Year should probably become member only awards in the future.

    Exactly, nobody stands a chance against the mighty Stormwind from the west. Besides, whether anyone wants to admit it, mods and members really are two very separate categories. That "I'm a member too" crap doesn't really float, because as a mod, you have the power to silence a member should you so choose, which gives you more presence. So, yeah. Mods shouldn't be in the same categories as members when at all possible.

    And for my next suggestion, I'm going to challenge your ability to be open minded, before you shoot it down that is....Who should be made a mod? My nomination--Jumpman. [​IMG]

    We have had discussions about the possibility of new mods and we decided that for the moment no new mods are needed. Notice how i said for the moment. That could change in the future, possibily once the DS draws closer to release or is actually released, but these things don't have easy answers, plus i probably shouldn't say much about it either so this is all your getting from me.

    I think we should have a runner up prize this time. If all the awards were blue, maybe theirs can be silver.

    I kind of feel sorry for shaun. he got runner up for alot of things, i think 2 or 3 times and got nothing.

    Seperate cateogories is a good idea and i hope we can see that in the future. As you can see the only normal person winning was cruddy buddy i think.

    I think this is a good idea to help improve the quality of this site.
    However, Mods should be excluded from it(after all they are Mods and have reached the post for a reason) and it should be based on regular members.
    Just a thought.
    Take Care,
