      It's the same bloody users in almost every category.

      I wonder how many categories the following users were nominated for:

      Cheeseis*something*
      Paracosm
      UWS
      the bear
      Planet Crown
      Woody


      Clearly the nomination process was just one massive circle-jerk.

      Indeed, there does seem to be fewer. Perhaps the same people stuck out more this year? :holmes:

      Indeed. Maybe 'Chat Awards' would be a more apt name. :dry:

        Well, as noted, most of them are big hitters in the Chat section. It could be that people from other sections were just less inclined to participate this year. Has the traffic outside Chat dropped at all? :holmes:

        There should be a write-in option tbh.

        I agree, even though I have been nominated for several. But also, I think the CT haven't checked that some users do not qualify for certain categories like the Newbie award that has some already established users that joined several years ago. But yes, does appear to be that it has been a case of 'nominate me and I will do the same back'.

        Unfortunately that happens every year.

        Personally, I think it is a bit odd that one of the nominees for international member of the year only joined a few weeks ago, and another doesn't even log on anymore, but the TSR awards wouldn't be the same without a few duds - I remember Hylean used to win the international award ever year, even though he was British. :giggle:
