    Hello and welcome to the Second Annual 'Forgies Awards Night!

    :bananana:

    We started a bit later than expected, but here we are!

    Already, we can see members coming in! All the admins and mods are dressed in their formal best, led by Elwood. :elwood:

    We can see other members piling in!
    There's Kyle with his Companion Cube! :kyle:
    Async with a very long essay trailing behind him! :async:
    Garamet is dragging a beaten retard troll, and she's swinging it at other trolls that have showed up to try to ruin this ceremony! :soma:

    Sokar is following close behind her, with a HUGE FUCKING CROSSBOW ready to strike!

    The rest of the 'Forge is coming in now! Diacanu, who is hoping to win Funniest Poster, is muttering off what appears to be a hilariously corny acceptance speech!

    Apostle has just arrived - he's carrying Bibles and throwing them at the evil satanic groundhogs that are digging around the Awards Arena!

    Uncle Albert brought in his Jeep, and he demolished the building next to the Awards Arena just so he could get a good parking spot! :ua:

    Mrs. Albert is giving people hugs... :mrsa:

    ... as Lethe marches in with his army of zombies! :zombie:


    It looks like it's gonna be a great night! Some of our American members aren't here yet because they got lost in a roundabout, but Dan Leach and the other Brits will get them here eventually. :P

    Stay tuned for the first award - The Techman Award!

    The Techman Award for Lifetime Achievement goes to Techman this year.

    May we all take one moment of silence in honor of Techman.

    Alright!

    Let's start with the awards you voted for!

    Now let's see who's the LEAST VALUABLE POSTER! :nyer:

    Dear Award Recipient:

    We hate you. We don't like anything you say, and we can't stand anything you do. We don't like how stupid you can be. But we love having you around, because at least you give us something to do.
    Go burn in hell, and die in a fire. :tasvir:

    Signed,

    WordForgers who didn't win this award. :P


    In all seriousness, though:

    Every year in the Red Room, we have some really kickass threads. Some of them are great because we get to make fun of each other, and each other's mothers' asses.

    But sometimes the best threads are the ones that show us what a wonderful, fucked up, amazing family-of-sorts Wordforgers can be!

    :banana: :banana: :banana:

    I'm happy to announce that the Best Red Room Thread of 2007 is

    Due to lack of visitors to the forum, the 'Forgies will take a break for a few hours.

    Here's a Companion Cube to keep you entertained:

    Sometimes, things aren't all fun and games, and despite having fun people like Diacanu around, we often lose members.

    This next award goes to our Most Missed "Disappeared" Poster. We miss you, you bastard, and you'd better come back. :(

    So, wherever you are, we hope you're reading this thread.

    :winner:


    Other people we miss:
    Jeriko (2nd place)
    Gul (3rd place)

    Alright, we already gave our Liberal Hippie his award, so it's time to give the Fundie Nutcase Conservative his award.

    Representin' the Right, this guy could convince liberals to become conservative! He is analytical, and makes compelling arguments. He can debate anyone's head off! :soma:

    Oh, don't you LOVE drama queens?

    :drama:

    Seems that WordForge can't get enough of them! The Drama Queen category had eleven nominees.

    Actormike, Nick, and Garamet took the top 3 spots, but nobody is a bigger drama queen than our winner!

    Winning by only one vote,

    2007 was the Year of Godawful Name Changes.
    It was crazy.
    thelurker became Linda, Tasvir changed his name too many times to count, Rosentcrantz just kept picking stranger and stranger names (not to mention changing genders on us a couple of times!).

    Hey you, with the fraking name change, go back to yer old name!

    Last year, Storm was MVP of the Red Room.
    But then he chickened out on us and ran away. :finger:
    So, because he wasn't around to reclaim his title, we have a new MVP of the Red Room!

    And he'd better not leave. :garamet:

    For keeping the Red Room alive and kicking,

    Last year, Dayton3 was our Most Improved Poster!

    But now he's improved all he can. :shrug:

    In 2007, someone else decided he should improve too. We like him better than we did before, so he's getting this award.

    Most improved poster: we like you. :backhug:

    Can an airplane take off from a conveyor belt?

    "Yes, it can."
    "No, it can't!"
    "It can if it wants to."
    "No, it can't, and you're a dumbass!"
    "Back up your ideas with proof! Don't just call me a dumbass, prove to me that you're right!"
    "The airplane will prove what it wants to prove.
    It will take off if it wants to."
    "Shut up with that "prove" crap!"


    Are you sick of arguing about airplanes and conveyor belts?
    Have you just had it with that topic?
    Are your friends still not believing you?


    Then this is the book for them!

    The Media Central doesn't get the traffic or attention that the Red Room gets, but we had some pretty awesome threads in there in 2007.

    :banana: To honor the Media Central's greatness, we have the Best Media Central Thread Award! :banana:

    The top 3 spots were really close, and the top thread was the best by only 2 votes!

    I LOVES THE GREEN ROOM!

    Why?

    It has LOLCATS! I CAN HAS LOLCATS! And that makes me happy! :hyper:

    There's birthday threads, there's threads about cars, sports, games, jobs, life, pretty pictures, pics of us as babies, pics of us as kids, pics of spiders (:yuck:) and flowers :danleach: and everything in between!

    However, it wasn't Dan's pictures or Mrs. Albert's birthday thread that won this year.

    Instead, it was a thread we've revived over and over again!

    The Green Room is taking another win tonight!

    The Best Thread of the Year was not, as many people expected, Candlelight Vigil for POTN.

    Instead, it was a Green Room thread that brought us many lol's.

    For every best thread, there has to be a WORST THREAD.

    This year's thread was a wretched piece of shit. I apologize to the thread's OP, but man, why did you post this?
    It made most WordForgers :weep:
    It made some people :vomit:
    Some never truly recovered from the awful abuse that was 2007's Worst Thread.

    Before bad memories start coming back,

    So, we've got the Biggest Meltdown of '07 Award!

    The :ua: poster who won this award has already won two other awards! We all know who he is, and whether we like it or not, the board usually depends on him to keep it working. :P

    However, when he gets pissed off, wow, he gets pissed off! :lol:
