Forums - Gaming Discussion - VGChartz Greatest User Tournament 2012 - Nominations

 

As the year is winding down and Christmas avatars are popping up all over the site, the time for the annual VGChartz Greatest User Tournament draws near. As many of you know, this used to be run by Seece, who sadly left the site during the course of 2012 but on his VGC-poster death bed, Seece begged me to carry on his legacy and run the tournament after his departure.** 

**Disclaimer: The events described in the previous sentence might not have happened and may be a complete and utter lie in order to make the writer of this thread feel better about taking over Seece’s feature.

The users participating in this tournament were usually chosen by Seece and Machina but to avoid leaving out users (and to save me a lot of research). I decided it would be better to let the users nominate who they think should have a spot in the tournament.

So here’s how it’s gonna work:

  • You make a list of up to 20 users (you can name only 5 if you want to) you think deserve a place on the tournament (in no particular order)
  • The vote will be tallied up until December 31st 2012 (or December 21st if the world ends).
  • In early January the top hundred or so users will make it to the tournament which will carry on like previous years.


Rules:

- You cannot nominate yourself (because it’s sad, really)
- You can vote only once.
- The users nominated have to have been active during the year 2012.

Sidenote:

- If someone is interested in running this thing with me, a co-host would be appreciated
- If someone wants to opt out of the tournament they can say so here.

USERS WHO HAVE OPTED OUT OF THE TOURNAMENT:

- trasharmdsister12
- d21lewis
- Kasz216
- Acevil
- chocoloco
- spurgeonryan

Blessed is he, who in the name of decency and good discussion, stays on topic through the valley of cheap shots, for he is truly his forum's keeper and the finder of lost quality.
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to flame and troll other users.
And you will know my name is the Mod when I lay my banhammer upon thee.

Did NiKKoM say he was going to do this? I wasn't aware!

Rumor had it that NiKKoM was taking this whole thing over.

Anyway, let's see who is awesome

haxxiy: teaches me new English vocabulary even though he's English-second-language, very knowledgeable.

Dodece: Wall-o-text poster who manages to be insightful rather than annoying

VicViper: a dude with a passion for games.

For that matter, FoX

zarx: knows his shit

I dont know, it was hard so I thought of all the names that came into mind first XD. There are others as well , wish I could nominate more than 10 ;(



Note: I believe this is my 1,234th post since I've joined back in April. For some reason I think that's interesting. Now for the first people I can think of - 

 

  • Mr Khan, an easy choice. If there's a nicer guy on these forums, I haven't seen him around.
  • Salnax, for running the monthly "Most Anticipated Game" thread.
  • Smeags, for running a whole bunch of threads.
  • Jay520, for helping out Salnax and generally being within acceptable levels of coolness.
  • M.U.G.E.N, because from what I've seen he's done an outstanding job with the Official Vita Thread.
  • amp316, because he's just a cool guy. I don't need any other reason.
  • Conegamer, for being one of the first members to make me feel welcome on VGC.
  • happydolphin, for occasionally providing good discussion topics once I've pinpointed exactly what he's trying to say.
  • pzeus, more out of grudging respect than secret admiration, but definitely still a worthy candidate.
  • badgenome, for being hilarious.
  • RolStoppable, for being hilarious is his own way, among other, more confidential reasons.
  • BazilZero, another one of "I have no reason to nominate beyond saying that this person seems cool" group.
  • IamAwsome, who is obviously awesome at things except maybe spelling the word "awesome".
  • Soriku, and I'm really tired of writing explanations.
  • noname2000
  • NiKKoM
  • miz1q2w3e
  • VicViper
  • morenoingrato
  • TruckOSaurus. Too easy.
This list makes me realize that I've come a loooong way in eight months and met quite a few interesting people.

The OP says you can make a list up to 20, or are you just having trouble deciding on others?

Edit: I deserve a facepalm now.

You know what in the interest of diversity, I upped the maximum of choices to 20.
