Yes that's right, earlier in the month we asked you all to make your nominations in this topic. I've now counted up all the nominations for each award, and a specific poll has been made for each one. The members who got the most nominations for that award are in that poll, and now you can cast your final votes.

Please head over to the 2006 Forum Awards board and vote honestly (and please, no voting for yourselves, you'll be named and shamed) in as many of the polls as you have a valid opinion for. Feel free to say who you voted for, but you don't have to reveal to everyone else your vote if you don't want to. All the polls have been pinned for your convenience.

Good luck to everyone who's been nominated!

Because some people have asked, we will probably close off the voting forum and sort out who's won on New Years Eve, or possibly New Years Day. If it's looking like we need to have more votes then we may leave polls open for slightly longer to avoid ties etc.

As for actually revealing the winners and handing out awards... I'm still considering what to do. I was going to code a little hack for the forums which would let us give you awards and they'll be shown under your avatar in posts and stuff. In that case it may take a while for me to actually reveal the winners.

I would like to wait a while if you can get the picture's shown under our avatar's, that's the way they do it over at gtaforums and it looks good. But about how long would it take to code a hack, a week or 2?

Dunno really, depends if I do it properly or not. If there's already an award mod for IPB that's been released I'll use it but if not I'll have to code my own. The thing is if I use something someone else has made it's not tailored to how we want to implement it, therefore it's often a wiser decision to code one by myself, at least then it does EXACTLY what I want and need it to do.

you must be really good in php and stuff... :o
But it would be cool to have it under your avi. But it will become a bit clutterd if your idea of have a gang logo under it will also be implemented..

Well, if we go with the 'Awards under the avatar' thing, theni'm going to be very desperate to win something.

If it's a sig, then not so much.

I don't mind which though. I think we'll have enough votes aswell.

having it under your avi is something special. Nothing special about having it in your sig.

Maybe some kind of ribbon under your avatar or inventory link to show you won something. I've got a feeling they'll be gloating at someone, though... :P

Off-Topic: Now if only there was a best grammar award. :P Kidding.

With the avatar section becoming cluttered - Yeah we'd just have very small not much bigger than an emoticon sized thumbnail trophies there, hover over them with your mouse and the award name and year shows up. Clicking on one will go to your profile where you awards are shown in detail with a bigger images.

Oh ofcourse, should be able to find a simple mod/hack thing that will allow you o do that though.

Here's an example: http://www.squarefor...mber.php?u=4579

Just someone's profile, scroll down.

Not trying to advertise here for the record.

That's a vB forum though, not IPB. Though I magine there's a similar mod for IPB available, though maybe not this version we're on. What I described in my above post would take a bit of work to do.

Yeah, I realised moments after my post. I do like VB though.

Sounds like it's more work than I thought, I don't think it's worth it if the urgrade is a lot of effort.

What happens if you win more than one award? Then below your avatar would be packed. Plus will you get an award for coming 2nd or 3rd or is it just for first place?

Don't know if anyone suggested this, but why dont you put the awards under the member's PIP? If they already have one for being an Admin, Mod, Gang Member, etc...then just creat a new pip for them that combines both the award and PIP they had before.

For example.

That's what we were talking about OGTAM, it will become to crowded. The way we concluded with is better.

Ok now I don't get your logic. If you had this other code you'd still have both the PIP and the award...so it would end up crowded either way...
