We should vote poll style, maybe even set up a different forum topic to serve as a header for all the different categories/topics.
Edit: Another thing to consider would be criteria for each of the voting categories.
What is a newbie? (although I signed up in late 05, I didn't get active here until Oct 06, thats less than a year, Am I still a newbie. Or on the other hand, someone shows up with a great number of uncirculated shows in the bittorrent postings forum (as their first posts) are they a shoe in for best newbie and best seeder, when compared to people like august who shares on a consistent basis.
A big one: What's post whoring? By whose criteria?
Longest posts, do we need to really vote on this one gumbo?
Most Posts: Again, why vote, everyone knows who has the most posts
Best Seeder: Who is the best seeder, the ones who consistently share or the ones who post the one show you need. What about the hub? khanti has got us all there in amount of shows available. Is he or is he not the best seeder? And again, see best newbie.
Most Donations: I don't want to know who gives to the paug the most. A donation is what it is, a donation. Lets keep that between tet and the sender.
I could go on and on, but my main point is that some of the categories suggested are too subjective. I like the idea of a paug award, but we need to get trough a lot of discussion first. By then, there will be not doubt about whither or not any of us are up for the best newbie award.
