Im with you on this though NA

Mav - always love your work so how about a new theme?


Sorry Yetster! My mind was on graphics design only and not awesome art and lovely books! Apologies!

Well I don't the logo I made meets the ideal requirements, but that's something we all can work together on as a community.

Have awe figured out which categories we want to use this year?

Tue Sep 23, 2014 6:12 pm

Well, since folks haven't said much on the subject I'll throw some ideas out there based on what's actually applicable for this year:


Awards to KEEP:

Gravitude MVP x3:
Gravitude MVP's are Grav Bar members that stand out and keep this place running. Whether it be the technical, entertaining, informational, SSX spirit, or anything else, the Grav Bar just wouldn't be the same without them. Vote for three of them.

Best Site Contributor:
Who contributes most to the web aspects of Merqury City? Who's made the biggest positive difference in our awesome site?

Best Fan Contributor:
Who keeps the fans at the top of their priority list? Who's done the most for us as SSX fans?

Best Info Hunter:
This person is on top of new and old SSX news. They are the first to let the rest of us know of all the awesome things that are happening.

Best Overall Artist:
This person lives and breathes their art. Forget anything having to do with SSX, this person is just an amazing artist.

Best Fanart Artist x2:
When it comes to fan art, this person is at the top of the ranks. Always having something to show, something new and fresh, something awesome to look at, and most importantly, something having to do with SSX! Vote for two of these.

Best SSX Fanboy/girl:
Maybe they're a little over the top, but what can you say, they just LOVE SSX.

Most Entertaining:
This person brings you happiness every time you're on the forum.

Nicest Person:
Not a mean bone in their body.

Funniest Post:
This post or series of posts has been successfully turned into an inside joke of the Grav Bar.

Best Looking Male:
Hottest dude.

Best Looking Female:
Hottest dudette.

Best Noob:
The best of the newest Grav Bar users in recent history.

Most Annoying/Biggest Troll:
At least they get an award!


Awards to NOT keep:

Chatroom King/Queen:
Keepin' up the chat like it's nobody's business.

Best Board Creator:
We've been getting TONS of board designs lately, vote for the person that rocks the most at making them, makes the coolest boards, etc.

Best Fan Fiction Author:
If there were an SSX novel, they'd be writing it.

Awards to ADD:

Best SSX (2012) Player:
The SSX (2012) player who has contributed the most to the competitive scene this year.

Best SSX Original Recipe Player:
The SSX or SSX Tricky player who has contributed the most to the competitive scene this year.


So yeah, this is just getting the ball rolling. Not sure if folks still want the awards in the cut section even if they're not very relevant just for nostalgia's sake. Also not sure if we should still do 2x for the "best fanart artist" category or not? Yeah, I dunno. Just thought I'd throw stuff out there. :)

Sounds good Citylights. We all agree?

Thu Sep 25, 2014 10:02 am

I'm down.

Thu Sep 25, 2014 10:17 am

Me too :D

Thu Sep 25, 2014 1:04 pm

Yep, those look good. :thumbsup

Thu Sep 25, 2014 3:18 pm

sounds all good to me :thumbsup

Sat Sep 27, 2014 3:06 pm

Yeah I'll let the best board creator go this year :cry :cry :heh :heh
To be honest, it wasn't really relevant last year but I took it anyway lol! All the other awards look good to me!

Sat Sep 27, 2014 6:15 pm

Heh, sorry Curry! :heh let's be honest for a sec though, you wouldn't have been able to beat this gem of mine:

Beat me to it :)

Are we up for this, I'll take votes and organise if needed?
Mav you up for trophies or we can set up a design team to split the work?

We all agree with Citys vote list above? Seems thought out so I agree with it as this years running list. Anyone else agree? if so we'll get this running from next monday.

Wed Oct 22, 2014 2:20 pm

Yeti and Mav, I can help with vote counting—as well as design after Halloween—if you need another set of hands! If not, that's cool too! Hopefully if the trophy work needs to be split up we can get some real designer folks to help, but I'm here if you need me. :heh

Thu Oct 23, 2014 5:39 am

you and me are pretty much in the same boat my friend, I pretty much only contribute to the pony thread and even then things have been slow there thanks to the hiatus

Mon Oct 27, 2014 6:06 pm

I can help with whatever this week, though my official policy is to stay out of GA because it's supposed to be a community run thing and not an official MC thing.

Tue Oct 28, 2014 5:53 pm

Lets get this rolling then :thumbsup

List for votes is as below
I'll contact Mav to see if he still has time to do any artwork

Gondee and Myself will take your votes, if thats ok with you G?
When counting votes and its a draw between two or more, the person who got the most votes first wins

Need any volunteers to create Sigs and Av's for the below listings please
once we have a design team, I'll divvy up the work or let me know what you can handle. PM me to let me know you can help.


Voting starts Tomorrow/29 Oct and will finish on Mon 3rd Nov
Awards design will be done that week and winners announced on Saturday 8th Nov
all being well :heh
