1st Annual Isles Board Awards

Someone suggested this to me a while back and I think it is a good idea. Since we're unfortunately in the offseason now, this could help to pass the time until free agency starts. What I'd like to do is start a thread where we have categories like "Best poster", "Best avatar", "Best new poster", "Funniest poster", "Best old school poster" etc. I've been part of it on other boards that I frequent (non-Isles) and as long as there aren't any categories like "Worst poster" and everyone keeps everything civil, it can be a whole lot of fun.

So, what I'm looking for is suggestions on categories via Private Messages. Once we nail down the categories (maybe I'll limit it to 10 but I'll see what comes back as suggestions), I'll start a new thread every day where people can vote and a winner will be declared.

If for any reason, a poster does not want to be included as a nominee for a specific category, they will be mocked for all eternity. Just kidding...if anyone does not want to be included, I understand, so just let me know and I'll make sure that you are not included.

Voting for each category (once the categories are nailed down) will be done via public polls so everyone will be able to A) see the results and B) see how everyone else voted.

Sound ok to everyone? Just remember, this is all done in fun. We have a great community of posters here and doing these awards is just a good way to celebrate that a bit. Be creative with the category ideas...I'm open to just about anything. It is really meant to be about the board itself and its posters but if you guys want to include events, games or anything else from this past Islander season, we can probably do that too. Let's keep everything from a certain time frame, though. So, from the start of the regular season through the Game 5 loss to Buffalo.

Let's get it on!

Only one nomination in that category, I'm guessing.

Thanks for bringing that up. Campaigning will be allowed on the thread for that particular category. So, if you're nominated for something, you will be allowed your soap box in that thread to 'prove your worthiness', so to speak.

Not to be a party-fister, but in all my cyber-travels, I never much cared for this type of thing. It ends up being a popularity contest and a couple people always seem to get stung if they don't get mentioned for anything.

Yeah, I hear ya and I've seen that happen before, too. I say that we try it this year and if it turns into that kind of mess that you described, never again.

I will say one thing, though, if anyone deliberately makes negative comments about people and things go down the tubes, I'm shutting it down in a hurry.

BTW, I've gotten some great suggestions via PM so keep them coming!
