Its that time of the year! The beginning! And so I have decided to do something called the Donut Awards TM. Gonna post a bunch of categories and you have to pick your choices on who fits them best over the last year, through private message to me.

SpyLord wrote:I hate to sound so critical, but the awards did feel unfair, enough to be predictable.

How could they be unfair? Because like you could nominate anyone other than yourself, and you could nominate as many people as you wanted. You could vote for yourself but that didn't seem unfair because of the rule where you couldn't nominate yourself. If you thought it was predictable why didn't you nom somebody who wouldn't have been predictable? And if it's because you didn't think they'd win on their own merit from being from out of left field, you could have campaigned for them hard once the nominations were announced. How is it unfair?

SpyLord wrote:The things I prefer to change is have a limited number of nominations for each person.

But, like, why? I feel like if someone thought that the person was worth nominating, like... what? First come first serve even if the the second thing they were nominated for fits better? Or over-complicate things by having a vote for nominations? Like I was nominated for two things, should we have pre-voted for which category fit me better? Thats little confusing considering we're all just friends in a small online community. Just seems needless. And if one person just gets to decide which nominations are okay and which aren't then they may as well just choose the members being nominated in the first place. Or have them decide who wins too for that matter. I don't know, maybe you have a better idea though? How would it be decided which category to put multiple noms in? Also why not have someone nominated for multiple categories? Where is the harm?

SpyLord wrote:The host has the honor of creating the categories, but will not be in charge of votes and nominees.

But, like, why not? What's the difference? I don't mind more people being involved or anything but I don't understand a rule like this. Donut's categories were fine and he seemed very fair in handling the votes. I mean he didn't seem to feel overwhelmed on his end, and he seemed like he was legit on our end, so maybe I'm just not seeing why there has to be a rule where he can't do it all if he wants to. They are the Donut awards. Anyone can host their own awards if they want to be in charge of all the stuff involved. I thought it was really nice that Donut troubled himself at all to try and make something fun for everyone. It's wonderful when someone does that you know? But he doesn't have to be the only one. Anyone can make and do their own thing and it would be a lot of fun too I'm sure. And if/when they do, then they can make the rules for it too. So why in general can't the host create the categories and be in charge of taking the votes at the same time?

SpyLord wrote:Thirdly, to appreciate those who do not use Discord or hardly use it, have more categories that focus on the forum, perhaps have a bit more awards than this year and more variety.

It was already established that at least 2/3rds of the categories were not Discord. Only 5 out of 15 were really. So... yeah... I think that's plenty appreciative to EVERYONE. Discord users and not alike, or else we in fact actually need MORE Discord categories to even things out 100% Or else it's really more unfair to those who use Discord. In fact I feel a little cheated and think that there weren't enough Discord categories in the case listed; less than half by a lot? Tsk tsk tsk. Why should there be more categories in forum when it already has more than half the categories?

Anyway not to completely nitpick apart your scathing review with my own scathing review of your scathing review (because I'm sorry if you came off that way and you didn't mean it to) but perhaps you could expand upon your ideas because I can't see your vision of improvements based on what you wrote, maybe you could explain in better detail? I ended each criticism of your criticisms with a question so you could start by answering those if you can and wouldn't mind. And further if you decide to try your own thing and do a Spy awards or something fun like that I hope everyone appreciates them as much as you appreciated Donut's awards.

'Cause I'm a sick individual
And I'm doing this thing called whatever the fuck I want, want, want
I'm unusual
Ain't taking no shit, gonna drink this sip 'till I'm gone, gone, gone
I'm livin' it up, not giving a what,
And I'm doing this thing called whatever the fuck I want

...

also Afraid of the competition?

Just forget about it. I was not trying to say it was bad or that I could do better. Donut did a fantastic job! I'm never good at explaining my thoughts and I apologize for what i said before. I'm going to drop my post out and stop criticizing (even though I didn't want to sound bad) for that will be best.
