Winner's Thread



First of all, a big thank you to everyone who nominated and voted this year, we had a brilliant turnout.

This thread is for the winners to be announced. Apologies, the banners have yet to be made, but I will get around to it in a short while.




GAME OF THE YEAR
Vacant Sky
...with 30% of the vote

The runner up was Super Mario RPG: The Seven Sages with 24% of the vote


PROJECT OF THE YEAR
Last Man's Stand
...with 32% of the vote

The runner up was Star Ruler with 27% of the vote


DEVELOPER OF THE YEAR
Sailerius
...with 35% of the vote

The runner up was Firgof Umbra with 21% of the vote


BIGGEST LETDOWN
Zeriab Leaving .ORG
...with 33% of the vote

The runner up was Dark Gaia with 27% of the vote


BEST VAPORWARE
Final Fantasy Essence

ARTIST OF THE YEAR
Perihelion
...with 51% of the vote

The runner up was Makasu with 20% of the vote

WORKSHOP OF THE YEAR

MOST HELPFUL MEMBER
Zeriab
...with 36% of the vote

The runner up was como with 23% of the vote


MEMBER OF THE YEAR
Bacon
...with 20% of the vote

The runner up was jbrist with 18% of the vote


BEST NEWCOMER
my.opium.eyes
...with 59% of the vote

The runner up was Daxis with 12% of the vote


MOST IMPROVED MEMBER
Jbrist
...with 30% of the vote

The runner up was bacon with 28% of the vote


COMMUNITY SWEETHEART
Perihelion
...with 38% of the vote

The runner up was Dadevster with 24% of the vote


IRC WHORE
Blink_
...with 65% of the vote

The runner up was shadow with 19% of the vote


MEMBER WE MOST WANT BACK
Zeriab
...with 45% of the vote

The runner up was Venetia with 41% of the vote




Now for the big award: who will be running our country for the next five years. It has been a tough election. Exit polls suggested a strong Dadervastive landslide, but as our swingometer shows, it could have gone either way.


Left: Nick Comolegg, Right: Dadevster Cameron


Let's have a look at the HBGames.org Swingometer.

Image

But what does this mean?

Basically, for a Dadervastive government, a coalition between Dadevster, Holly, and Venetia would be formed, giving them 28% of the vote. As Liberal Comotwats have 72% of the vote they are clearly ahead, meaning a coalition government between como and dadevster would lead to er I don't really know and to be honest this joke has been stretched out far enough. Sorry.

STAFF MEMBER OF THE YEAR
Como
...with 72% of the vote

The runner up was Dadevster with 15% of the vote

Congrats to all the winners!

I thought Venetia would win the Member We Most Want Back award, but I underestimated Zeriab's effect on the community.

Holy shit I actually won one?!

I think bacon deserves a congratulations AND a better luck next time, since we were 2% apart on both of them!

Awesome! Thanks to everyone who voted for Vacant Sky and thanks to the awards staff for hosting it. Hoping to get Act III out of beta in the next week or so, so keep checking back!

And congratulations to all the other winners, too!

Congratulations to all winners!

There is that new cool award forum system (with bugs though), but well... this year awards were bit lame. Not only because I didn't won anything, and even worse I've not been nominated, but aldo because it seemed that there was less user participation than last year.

And being nominated for best newcomer and most improved sorta makes little sense, but yay

Congrats all

Being a semi-retired veteran 'round here, I do have to agree that this ORGy seemed too short to be sweet. But, lookin' back at it, the turn out was still rather pleasurable! Either way, this was an awesome ORGy, just warn us next time before we get all hot and sticky! I mean, especially since its been awhile for me... *ahem*

Congrats to the winners, glad Dargor caught up. I thought I was gonna win for a minute but runner up is pretty good as I haven't been active much this year. He's a good chap, always had respect for his push to make VX more awesome, not to mention FF6 SDK is a rather deticated work to go keep up :biggrin:

I do miss Venetia but Zeriab had a big helping in educating this community, including me. He's been here since the dawn so its time he takes a new path of real life adventures, good luck dude! :thumb:

Didn't keep up with the projects this year, but I remember Last Man's Stand being full of potential and looking like it would one day be bad ass sometime last year, congrats!

I have to personally thank Peri and Tomas for their 1-on-1 with me, trying to do pixeling and music (appologies for not submitting anything in music analysis btw). On the other hand, I've been working hard with a real band, maybe we'll get something tangible recorded straight to mp3 for ya one day and I'll post it for everybody ;)

Anyways, I'm done giving shot outs, congrats to everybody nominated and the ones who won! An awesome turn out of events, hopefully I'll be able to keep up with them this year. Kinda forgot how much I missed this place 'til I checked the polls out :fap:

PS; If you can keep the board handy with not only the winners, but the nominees, it would be useful to check out in the future. There is alot of awesome action I missed :wink:

ROCK ON MOTHERFUCKERS! :cheers:

They're not over yet ;)

I have some secret plans but tbh I didn't organise this very well this year -- sorry.

They have actually gone on longer than last year though; just last year had more rounds. After the nominations came through it seemed having two rounds would be a bit silly this time around, because although more voted I think, less different nominations came in for a lot of them.

They aren't over though. ;)

I think Last Man's Stand and Sailerius won because both have a large following -- which isn't a bad thing and is a good reason for winning IMO.

I'm annoyed Vengeance didn't win Vaporware, would have been nice to get something out of three years of constant work to no end, but hey, it was never released properly so I can't complain.

I don't want to give too much away but in the coming months (or weeks, or whenever it's decided) the bORGys will be taking place. Watch this space.

Ah man, my Mario game (Mario RPG: Seven Sages) was up by two for GOTY last time I checked yesterday. Then it ended up losing by 2. Oh well, glad people liked our game and thanks to those who voted.

Congrats also to Vacant Sky. I searched for it on youtube and it looks great.

Btw, if anyone liked our Mario game, a much better one is in the making. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9ArssNYo74

@como: I agree that LMS has rather a large fan base, not just on this site. I guess that does give it an advantage.
@Firgof Umbra: I am humbled :) Thank you. (You still thrashed me in developer of the year though lol, so gratz for coming second)
