    VOTING ENDS ON SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2009

    AWARDS CEREMONY TO BE (TENTATIVELY) HELD ON SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2009, 7:00 P.M. U.S. CENTRAL TIME

    Welcome one, welcome all, welcome mebers new, welcome members old to...​

    The Fifth Official Semi-Annual Muppet Central Forum Awards! (Volume 5)

    This is the time of the year where we at Muppet Central Forum gather together to vote for our favorite people here at the forum! We have categories for everyone and everyone is welcome to vote! But how, you may be asking yourself, do you, the unknowing masses, go about voting for your favorite people? Well, the answer is simple shall be presented to you in the form of bulletted rules definitely not stolen from last year's awards thread (also posted by moi).

    Rules and Guidelines for Voting in the
    Muppet Central Forum Awards:

    Copy and paste the list of award categories into an e-mail.
    Enter your votes for the categories. You do NOT have to vote in all of the categories! Absolutely NO voting for yourself. Campaigning for yourself IS allowed, as long as it DOES NOT get out of hand. If it gets out of hand (e.g. numerous threads asking for a vote, asking for a vote at the end of EVERY post you make, and making threats to people about voting for you) one of our moderators will quickly delete all of your campaign threads and your votes will not be counted and you will not be allowed to attend the ceremony. It's harsh, but these rules are here for a reason. (Acceptable means of campaigning include: campaigning via signatures, campaigning via avatar, and campaigning in THIS thread.) You MAY vote for a member in more than one category. (e.g. I vote for Beauregard in the funniest member and best Moppet Family character categories.)
    Once you've filled out your ballot... Send an e-mail to muppetcentralawards@gmail.com. Any ballots posted in this thread (or anywhere else) will NOT be counted. (If you do not wish your e-mail to be known, you may also send your ballot in a private message to theprawncracker, The Count, or dwayne1115.)
    ALL BALLOTS MUST BE E-MAILED BY FEBRUARY 8TH, 2009! ! ! Absolutely no exceptions! (Unless of course you have a really good reason. :p) We need this time to count the votes and create the awards!
    Attendance at the Awards Ceremony on Feb. 15th is NOT required, but IS requested. I mean, c'mon, it's so much fun! Why would you want to miss it? I know I'll be there!
    Acceptance speeches will be allowed at the awards ceremony, but you will NOT be waited for if you're not around to post. Please keep that in mind. Speeches are NOT required, it's just a fun way to incorporate winners into the ceremony. There will be time between each award presentation for speeches.
    And the biggest rule that absolutely MUST be followed... HAVE FUN! ! !

    Those are the rules and the guidelines! See? Nothing too difficult or harsh!

    To make things easier, I will be posting the official ballot in a new post. The categories for this year's ceremony were picked apart and debated over by a committee of some of the oldest and best members MC has to offer. I assume they wish to remain annonymous, but know that they've done a fantastic job and I couldn't have asked for a better team!

    I'm also extremely honored to announce that once again we will be partnering with The Muppetcast hosted by Steve Swanson to broadcast our Awards Ceremony. Steve has been gracious enough to dedicate one of his shows to us and I couldn't be happier! So you all have that to look forward to too!

    Anyway... that's really all I have to say in this post. Please, please, please don't hesitate to vote! EVERYONE is welcome and encouraged to come vote!

    And remember, this is meant to unite MC, so if you don't win an award you really wanted, don't feel bad, and know that a good friend and a fellow Muppet fan did win it. Everyone here deserves awards--just for being themselves!

    So, without further ado, welcome, ladies, gentlemen, penguins, chickens, rats, and weirdos, to The Fifth Official Muppet Central Forum Awards! (Volume Five)

    HAVE FUN! ! ! ! !

    Sincerely and Insanely Yours,
    Ryan/Prawnie/theprawncracker/Jack/Widdle Prawnie Foo Foo/The Duke of Chutney/Half Lisa/etc.

    I have a quick question? Are there nominees or can you vote for anybody for any category?
  12. theprawncracker

    theprawncracker Well-Known Member

    No nominees! Just vote for whoever wherever! :zany:
  13. Pork

    Pork Active Member

    But...if we all vote for whoever wherever...then he'll win everything :(
  14. theprawncracker

    theprawncracker Well-Known Member

    Ach! Good point! And that hack doesn't deserve to when anything! :coy:

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    You're lucky I don't steal Squeekums too. *Hats reign down landing on everyone as they have to come up with examples of World's Worst dating videos/commercials based on the hat they have.

    And besides... Whoever wherever's no match for Whatever.
    :concern: Someone called?
    No,but just hang around by a thread, Prawny'll need you soon.

    If whatever ruled the world clothing would be edible!
    At least he's better a choice than Robin... He may be cute, but he's ruthless.

    *Bounces away.

    I'm not a legal citizen so I'm not gonna vote. BUT, I would like to throw my hat in the ring for any category you all wanna put me in. I might not be able to make it to the ceremonies, but do you mind if I win, that I put my acceptance speech up here later?
