    Well, 2014 was a great year for the Underground....so lets add some fuel to the fire. Remember back in high school, when the year book came out? Remember voting for and or being voted for, with ceremonial titles such as, "Most likely to succeed", "class clown" and so on....Well, we should offer banner awards for each year that we make history here....Who likes this idea? Give me some possible categories to vote for. Here are some of the banner titles I think would be fun.

    Most likely to Post 2014
    Most likely to be liked 2014
    Most Posts 2014
    Most Likes 2014
    Most likely to be Ignored 2014
    Most likely to be Followed 2014
    Most Ignored 2014
    Most Followed 2014
    Most likely to become a Vendor 2014
    Most likely to create a Mod 2014
    Best Vendor 2014
    Best Modder 2014
    Most likely to Vent a battery 2014
    Most likely to never be a Moderator 2014
    Best new Moderator 2014
    Best Moderator 2014
    Best Avatar 2014
    Best DIYer 2014
    Best in Content 2014
    Best Thread 2014
    Biggest Thread 2014


    So, if you like this idea, help get it rolling, ask one of the staff members to think about hooking us up with some banner love. Also, if you have other titles you would like to see added or changed here, post a reply. Keep it Foggy everyone! So, what do you think @VaporJoes ?

    It would be so hard to choose on the "Biggest Martyr" category though.

    CF, I can't vote 'cause you don't have an option meaning "rather not." I don't hate the idea and I can tag a few folks with some of your proposed awards. I haven't been around long, but see confusion or hysteria as folks campaigned for some of those badges. So, g'head and tag me with "Most Likely to be Ignored." See where I'm going with this?

    'Biggest Troll' is another one that should be added..
    'Worst use of the English Language'
    'Most Annoying Thread Topic'
    'Best Contest Holder' (for vendor and or VU member)

    I'm just so full of ideas that my head is starting to hurt so I must lie down for a few..

    Best Smackdown Award given to the member/staffer that most completely, artfully, and undeniably shuts down someone's douchebaggery with a single post.

    I never kiss ass, but I will show respect where its due, She definitely deserves some respect and some recognition on her thread though. Not to mention she is one hell of a nice lady.:D

    Didn't I hear that someone recently started a thread to out the moochers and it quickly became one of the few (if not first) thread on VU to be completely removed?

    I think it would be a neat thing to do.

    But, from an administrative standpoint, I think it could be a complete nightmare.
    Some of those categories would require looking threw a years worth of posts on the forum if accuracy was desired.
    For example: 'Most posts in 2014', you'd have to count all the posts of each active user from 2014, and/or use a member list filter to see who has the most posts between set dates (if the forum has that option). Then you also have to deal with the possibility of people complaining about any user who posts more then once in a row instead of just editing their post or combining quotes into one single post or complaining about posts that don't actually contribute to a discussion.

    Nah, it's all in a database. Easy peasy queries to get to the data and that other stuff is what makes people poor sports.
