Forums - Gaming Discussion - Greatest Newcomer Tournament 2016 & 2017 - Nominations Thread

We didn't have a 'Newcomer of the Year' tournament last year, presumably because no one remembered to do it, so in order to make sure we have one this year I've decided to kick things off with a nomination thread.

Because there wasn't a tournament last year, users that joined in 2016 will be eligible for this year's tournament as well. Both years are essentially being combined into one tournament just as a one off.

How it works:

- Anyone with more than 50 forum posts can post a list of users they wish to nominate. 
- Any user that signed up in 2016 or 2017 is eligible to be nominated.
- There's no cap on the number of users you can nominate.
- Any user from the 2016/2017 cohort can opt out the tournament if they want to (but please don't -_-)

If we get enough nominations to proceed then I'll gift the eventual finalists/winner the following prizes:

Winner:
1 month Gold supporter status
Welcoming Party forum badge
A Friendly Welcome forum badge

Runner-up:
1 month Silver supporter status
Welcoming Party forum badge

Third place:
1 month Bronze supporter status
Welcoming Party forum badge

Awesome idea for the rewards. Love the new badges. Although if you're making changes an option to filter by year joined in the user search would make this a lot easier...

As for nominations, I'd like to nominate:
Flilix
AngryLittleAlchemist

Oneeee-Chan!!!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

AngryLittleAlchemist is the only one I really know, but he's definitely worth nominating.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

The flaw in this is - there is no chart of what year people are.
So I'd have to date check EVERYONE.

When people joined must have been entered in the database. Link to a list of all 2016, 2017 users. Filtered by amount of posts to remove spam bots and what not.

That is just the re-born alt account of an old time user.
