    Good evening, forum! It's my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017 Weeklings Award Show, where we give awards to the things we thought were good as a forum, and where some people will be so proud that they put their awards in their signatures, where others will be so disappointed that they leave the forum. Well, we can only hope. Your host this evening will be me, and also @Ant E will likely provide additional commentary whether I ask him to or not.

    This first award goes out to somebody who keeps the forum running - keeps us all in line, tells us off when we're being stupid, bans spammers, and is all around a pretty fantastic guy. That's right...

    ...the Weekling...

    ...for Best Mod...

    ...goes to...

    @Bluey!

    Next, they're the cutest couple around, you always catch them making out on park benches and in canoes, they're probably going to have eleven children before you've even had one, they're always getting things heated up in any thread they can find, and they're always bickering just like every other old couple. That's right...

    ...the Weekling...

    ...for Best Couple...

    ...goes to...

    @Bluey & @Ant E!

    The Weeklings will return after these long messages from our sponsors.

    Couple???? Quite ridiculous

    Although typical of Mod Bluey to try and take over

    I agree. But I am suspicious already of these awards as Seb is the only real mod. we have.

    Calling @Bluey a mod is a long running joke of @Ant E I myself voted for Bluey in that category and I know a couple others did as well. Abe may be slow but I trust his ethics.

    Mod Bluey is taking over. You have been warned. I have seen it.

    Currently wondering why, yet again, BigOleDummy is, yet again, getting involved, yet again. Again.

    I don't understand this. Are these the results of the recent votes or something else?

    The Weeklings, unlike The Rose Awards or whatever they were called, takes integrity very seriously. As such, no award has gone or will go to any recepient who did not earn it through the two-stage voting process and who does not fit the category. While we were initially prepared to invalidate any nominations for "Bluey" in the mod category, we eventually decided to allow them through, as we believe that, as Bluey is often referred to as a "mod", it was only fitting that he be counted for the category. Any complaints can be sent to my inbox. The Weeklings will resume shortly. Thank you.

    ...and we're back! I hope you enjoyed the break. Anyways, we've got loads more awards to give, so let's get back to it.

    We did have a few categories end up with ties in first place, even after two rounds of voting. One of these was Best Custom Name. As such, we're going to split this into two awards: Best Halloween Name and Best Christmas Name. So...

    ...the Weekling...

    ...for Best Halloween Name...

    ...goes to...

    Pumpkinikki (@Nikki the Great)!

    ...and...

    ...the Weekling...

    ...for Best Christmas Name...

    ...goes to...

    HO HO HO I'M JMC (@jmc2000)!

    Oh wow! I didn't expect to win this! I would just like to thank myself for thinking up this excellent name that was 2spooky4u. Thanks.

    Yet again I find myself worried about @Ant E . You KNOW that repeating yourself endlessly is a symptom of Asperger's Disorder , correct?

    A few things:

    1. It's Asperger Syndrome.
    2. It's no longer called Asperger Syndrome, it's now just diagnosed as a higher- functioning type of autism.
    3. There's nothing wrong about having it. It's a perfectly naturally occurring phenomenon.
    4. That's not the sort of repeating things that tends to happen with it.
    5. Repeating things endlessly is also a symptom of a habit, which everybody has.

    Welcome back!

    This next award is going to a thread that I personally haven't read all of yet, although I take time to read bits of it whenever I have the chance. It's about an old whiny man (although, really, that could describe either of the top two threads you've just voted on). So...

    ...the Weekling...

    ...for Thread of the Year...

    ...goes to...

    "A Christmas Carol" by @Nikki the Great!

    The next award is for a somewhat similar category. It's a post that came out of the blue amid a massive fight. It's a post the likes of which had never been seen before and may never be seen again. That's right...

    ...the Weekling...

    ...for Post of the Year...

    ...goes to...

    This post by @EasterBunny in "Who doesn't like us, and why not?"!

    We'll be back for more soonish!

    <shuffles back up to the stage, smiling at the cameras>

    What about ass burgers? Can I say ass burgers?

    <feels she might've misjudged the mood>

    Ahem. Anyway thank you for all who voted for my recent creation. A very late entry from me. I can't believe it won. I would like to thank @Bluey for inspiring my work and @Pembers for having an enormous willbert. Without you guys...this project wouldn't have been possible.

    <gets emotional>

    Thank you.

    Hello again and welcome once more!

    This next award may turn out to be controversial, as it's not actually going to someone who joined in 2017. However, we've made exception for two reasons - the first being that none of the nominees joined in 2017. Seriously, not one of you named someone who was a proper newbie. The second is that while he may have joined in 2016, his presence and persona on the forum didn't really amount to much more than the occasional post about Red Dwarf until this year. As such...

    ...the Weekling...

    ...for Best Newbie...

    ...goes to...

    @Underdunn!

    This next award is for a man who had the nerve to declare things no man ever dared declare before. A man who we thought was gone forever after the brave fights he fought. A man who shocked the world with his return to the forum not too long ago. A man who, before his return, was often discussed in tones of reverence by those wondering when he might grace this forum with his presence once again. That's right...

    ...the Weekling...

    ...for Best Return...

    ...goes to...

    @leewhitham!

    I'm going to sleep now. The Weeklings will return when I've stopped sleeping. Good night.
