    NF Awards are a way of rewarding our best posters. The way it will work is as follows: first, you have to make nominations. You can make a nomination for any of the awards listed. Then we'll have a voting thread where the nominees will be pitted against each other and the poster with the most votes wins the award.

    To prevent trolling there are going to be some guidelines. Some awards will have very specific parameters and all nominees will be vetted before being placed in the finals. If you win one of these awards you get your choice of the following:
    • 3 months of html
    • 3 months of sparkles
    • 3 months of a big avatar
    Poster of the year will get a choice of the following:
    • 6 months of html
    • 6 months of sparkles
    • 6 months of a big avatar
    Keep these guidelines in mind:

    1. You cannot nominate yourself.
    2. Controversies will be settled by myself and another poster (non-staff) who will remain unnamed.
    3. Each category has it's own unique qualifiers. If your nominee doesn't meet the qualifications listed they will not be included in the finals.
    4. Staff will have unique rules. Section moderators will make nominations for section specific awards. All staff can make nominations for non-section specific awards, like funniest poster, for example. Staff will also vet troll entries (for example I don't post much in the OBD, but staff there could help if someone who doesn't even post there was nominated for an award).
    5. Only one nomination/category.
    6. Avalon cannot opt out of any contests.

    And as stated before all nominees will be vetted, so if you make a troll nomination don't expect to see that option when you show up to vote.

    WINNERS:

    Congrats to @White Wolf , our Staff Member of the Year.
    Congrats to @afgpride , our Konoha Mall Member of the Year and our Writer of the Year.

    You can make as few or as many nominations as you like. I only ask that you make only one nomination per category.

    @Sennin of Hardwork regularly keeps the kanoha theater section updated.

    @WorldsStrongest
    Been sitting on the throne for a while now.
    @MAD vet and good scum hunter.

    @iwandesu is lights out at this.

    @Jake CENA rarely do i look at a post of his and not laugh.

    @Hi no Ishi great work in the NBD, threads are unique and engaging.

    @RemChu nice in our own way, funny and respectful as well.

    @Bonly rarely see a post that isn't in depth rather short or large and always has some sort of logic applied.

    Its only right @Mr. Waffles great poster.

    Well, rule 1 prevents you from nominating yourself. Call a friend to nominate you for these instead.

    I like his work as a staff member.
    He's always there if you need something.

    @WorldsStrongest
    The best poster so far.
    He's very active and contributive. Never saw him lose a single debate.

    @Rai
    He contributes in almost all the Akiha sections.
    The spoiler guy!


    @Nep Nep
    His posts in the CB are entertaining.

    @jayjay³²
    His submissions are freaking great.

    @Avalon
    It's Ava.

    @MAD
    Best hoster so far.

    @Ampchu

    @Island
    Active and consistent.
    I really like his posts.

    @Benedict Cumberzatch

    @Jake CENA
    He always makes me laugh outta my ass.

    @Rinoa
    Nicest member so far.

    @Polaris
    Her threads in the KCC are great.

    @Chie
    I guess this is self explanatory.

    @Lew

    @Pandamonium

    Always appreciate the moderation actions she takes and the very collected manner in which she does. She also does a wonderful job interacting with other members, not isolating herself to staff only.
    @Fusion
    This one's a bit more biased than the rest, but he's been an amazing role model for me since I joined, and even given me a deeper appreciation for a few things. I couldn't imagine being the NF poster I am without him.

    @Benedict Cumberzatch
    This man knows a lot... he's very insightful and perceptive. I was constantly impressed by his strategy and planning skills in the mafia game we played together.

    @Avalon
    I always die laughing at his posts, what more is there to say? :lmao

    @Rinoa
    Easily the kindest poster on the site. Her posts always give me a smile.

    @Rai
    Extremely friendly, tries to interact with everyone he can, and he's regularly active in several sections. Though I don't use them myself, I appreciate his spoiler provisions as they're a big contribution to the animanga community on the forum.

    I love you all :sachilove

    This is too hard. So many people are fitting for each category :psyduck

    Smartest - Bontakun :psyduck
    Nicest - Bontakun :psyduck
    Funniest - Bontakun :psyduck

    Question though: NF member of WHICH year? 2017 calendar year? Or the year-long period starting April 2017 and ending April 2018?
