    Hello, everyone, it has been brought to my attention by myself that nobody's started any year-end awards for this year. As such, I've taken it upon myself to do this. You may notice that we've only got seven days left in the year, as such, these awards will be called "The Weeklings". Please send in nominations for as many of the following categories as you can, submissions are due at the end of 2017. You do not have to submit nominations for every category. Here are the categories:

    You may have to bump this a few times to keep it prominent so some of us (me) won't forget. Too many things to do today to think about my lists for this yet.

    But off the top of my head I can think of at least ONE category in the forum section you forgot. "Most annoying Signature/Signature most likely to make you turn off all Sig.'s"

    Unfortunately, I don't think any such "negative" awards are allowed, as per Seb yelling at jed about them last year.

    Hmmm, O.K. then .... has to be positive does it...... gotcha! How about a category for "Finest example of overexuberance in a Signature"? Or "Best example of superfluous usage of Bandwidth"?

    See? Its all in the way you word it. Positive you want, positive I'll give you ;-).

    I think that should all fall very nicely under the "Best Signature" category.

    I don't knoooooooooooow................ "Best Signature" just sounds too....... constricting ........ too .......confining ..... too narrow and and..... well golly gosh just has too many exclusionary connotation's to it. How about something more "inclusive" ......... say ....." Signature best deserving its own Customs Union" or maybe ........ oh, I don't know "Best use of Acreage that's totally not in Bad Taste in a Signature"? I think we're getting closer , don't you think?

    Do I detect a hint of jealousy here? Abraclams sig is the best in forum history.

    I agree Abes sig is the best on the forum. I have been on the forum like 15 years and there has never been a better sig. I proclaim that anyone who doesnt love it is a lame ass

    Well, guess I'm a lame ass then. I think its tacky and juvenile, not to mention in bad taste. I also think you guys are doing him a disservice by egging him on and making him look silly. Just sayin

    There's still time to submit your responses. Despite its appearance I can verify, having done it myself, that these don't take that long to do.
