    One person who had enough nominations to get into the running was left off. So please, vote/re-vote for your choice...

    Should this not be based on who has the most posts and/or who has been here the longest?

    I don't think so. Someone could have a lot of posts or been here a long time but not be perceived as a big contributor; conversely, someone could be a relative newb and, if they've made a big splash, could rightly qualify.

    Basing it on who the membership thinks deserves it is the best and fairest way, I think.

    Simply spamming up Wordforge for years and years is not an "achievement". It's just a pastime.

    For that matter, the Techman award isn't really based on what a person does on Wordforge. It's based on those who have really done something worthwhile with their life. Which, IMO, is as it should be.

    I disagree. We have no idea what alot of the people around here do with their real life. How can we judge a "best"? Who are we to judge someone else's real life anyway? And given that most people on the internet lie about their real life anyway, who are we to judge it with any accuracy?

    Forgies should only be about what happens on Wordforge.

    All things considered, dying should win you the award by default. :shrug:

    Yeah, playground for the toughest of the tough, idn't it? You saw something good-natured and wanted to fuck it up, because you're a fuck up. Congratulations, shit stain, you got some attention.

    Holy shit, what is wrong with you? Stand up for your woman, I understand.

    I mean, you're the creative one right? You're sensitive. Girls like you because, well, you probably want to be one. You're the douchebag in the hipster clothing and the faggety hat drawing art and strumming the guitar while sipping your macchiato.

    This fits your image, I get it. :itsokay:
    Interesting observation. You need to get some perspective before spitting out such ridiculous shit.

    But seriously, go fuck yourself.
