Pontus is much more deserving of that award. I can't believe I even got the votes to tie him. You guys suck. (But thank you, very, very much.) And by that award I mean the Highwind. Not Best Female.

For the record, Award Qu told me it had to be short and I had assumed my quote would form a medley of quotes, otherwise that would have been longer and gone into even more detail about how much ass Miss Megan kicks.

Congratulations! ;)
Sorry about that. I was going to say something but there were too many damn speeches to keep track of and I forgot. Maybe you can go into it now...

I should've done predictions this year; I think I would've done really well.

Queen Award, First of Her Name
12-27-2011, 03:09 AM
I lost out on writing the sexiest male speech. But it's probably better this way because Laddy's “I would smurf that guy and that guy … and that guy” jokes will be a lot funnier than mine.

Mine would just be sad. “Awww, that girl thinks she could get with... somebody.”

Undertaking the Best Male speech is really taking me to task, though, to really capture what makes each of the fabulous gentlemen the best of the best. I keep trying to imagine myself in a bar with the whole group, just as a mild mannered observer, to capture the men in a relaxed atmosphere.

This fantasy invariably ends with me schnackered, dancing on the bar and getting bailed out of lock-up by Del Murder. Art imitates life indeed. But each man, in some way, is a representative of the best in each of us. At any rate, the only thing that could make these men better are beards, so I've provided them with one if they were lacking. Here are your nominees for Best Male!

blackmage_nuke
blackmage_nuke is likely the most underrated EoFFer of all time so it's great to see him getting the recognition he deserves with this nomination. With posts that are short, sweet but keenly observant and almost always hilarious, blackmage_nuke may not be the poster our forum wants … well I mean we do want him, but he's also the poster we need!

blackmage_nuke is the unexpected hilarity, the gutshot to the funny bone, of EoFF.

http://wlppr.com/wallpapers/2009/12/31/Bearded_black_mage.mini.jpg
Also great to see him growing out the whiskers.

Del Murder
If Cid is our daddy and Loony BoB is our crazy uncle, then Del Murder is our neighbor that's probably a former hitter for the Gug... Goo... He's probably Bruce Willis from The Whole Nine Yards. What I mean to say is he's charming, funny, witty, caring, and he's damn good with a Glock 17. Or so I've heard. The mastermind behind some of the most uncannily creative moves for the forums, we don't even know how lost we'd be without his subtle guidance.

Del Murder is the wisdom, the spirit guide of EoFF


http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_LVFKS9d2bTM/SeO3p_PrAJI/AAAAAAAADzk/NeytsMWAhy8/s400/benstiller_happygilmore_02
Do you have any idea how long it took to find this? All for an in-joke? Well, not that long. Also, sorry it's not a full beard.


Jiro
The Thunder from Down Under.

I just really wanted to say that. Jiro is a seesaw, Jiro is a sweetheart, Jiro is a lot of things. But most of all, Jiro is always up for a good time, a comrade in arms to the people who lack one, a man with a thirst for new times and new journeys, and a damned fine Excel Connect 4 player.

Jiro is the adventurer of EoFF.

http://www1.pictures.gi.zimbio.com/World+Beard+Moustache+Competitors+Attend+Media+AR_84eT-LNEl.jpg
This was the fist picture I found when I googled “Australia with a beard.”

Also, don't google “Australian beard.” Bad times.

NorthernChaosGod
Hear me out on this one, NCG is a really nice guy, he's funny and smart and has a good sense about him. But I swear to God the man likely has the fairest shake of anyone to drink me under the table. When a man sends you text messages for cocktail recommendations on a Sunday you know tit is about to get real.

NCG is our Id, our drunklust, and he's probably dancing on that bar right beside me.


http://www.agroatlas.ru/content/weeds/Crepis_tectorum/Crepis_tectorum.jpg
I googled beardhawk. Like mohawk? I got hawk's-beard. Deal with it.


Psychotic
What can I say about dear Paul that isn't going to get me in trouble. Not a lot. This guy is like an expert hunter/tracker/stalker. He's like freaking Aragorn. I think, in fact, he was Aragorn one time. Do you have a second account? He can sniff it out. Do you need to know where someone is from? He'll know. Do you need someone who knows this forum better than I know the back of my hand? Then you need Psychotic. Formerly integral to disarray and spam, Paul is now as ingrained in EoFF history as any inactive oldbie from the “Golden Age” ever was.

Psychotic is our past, present and our yet to come (but he is totally not as scary as the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come.)


http://rescuingprovidence.com/files/2011/12/Ghost_of_Christmas_Present.jpg
Plus this guy has a righteous awesome beard.


Rantz Rantz Revolution
Racistzien can throw out a pun in seconds that would take me all day to think up (and sometimes all day to get.) He's chivalrous, he's sweet, he knows a lot about computers and stuff, but he also knows a lot about being a good friend. Anyone who's talked to the guy for more than a minute can tell you he's the best of the best. I dare you not to like him.

Rantz is the whimsy and the charm that keeps us coming back for more.

D'awwww

sharkythesharkdogg
I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that I'm going to give some kind or schmoozy doozy of a write-up for sharky because of some imagined relationship everyone wants to imprint on us.

What I'm going to tell you is pretty simple. The well of this man's heart runs deep. He gives of himself to all who'd ask. Chances are if you've spoken to him he's offered you an ear to speak in, a back to lean on and a shoulder to cry on. And advice about the weird knocking noise your car is making.

sharkythesharkdogg represents our compassion.


http://acimg.auctivacommerce.com/imgdata/0/1/9/3/9/7/webimg/2424661.jpg
And he has, like, one point of articulation!

Bring on the Winner, who represents the best our boys have to offer!

In a land wrought with fear
Flamers, spammers, all so near
So much chaos for one forum to bear
These are those who dared to care

In the face of plight most sour
A sight in which most members may cower
A light, a breeze, a gentle pyre
That some common men dare to aspire

To be, to know, to be adjacent
Greatness most witty and patient
The Best Member Ciddie is announced
A prestige the great seven will pounce


Here we honor the greatest EoFFers of the past six months, men and women of intelligence, courage, resolve, and a high-brow sense of humor. Keep in mind, that addition to this title we must acknowledge and appreciate the greatness of all EoFFers, from the newbies to the oldbies, as they help keep these forums fresh, fun, and a remarkable place to chill out, chat with incredible people, talk about masterpieces of gaming, and just escape from the general ho-hum circles of our lives.

In a sense, EoFF serves as an escape. An escape from the routine of our jobs, school, and general business. These seven members are those who have made EoFF the friendly, welcoming, and jovial community it is today and has been for over a decade.

But enough about me attempting to be serious, here are the nominees...

Del Murder
Del Murder is a pretty incredible guy and one of the members synonymous with EoFF. His sense of humor is quick, sharp, and typically thought-provoking. He is also a big sweetheart who contributes significantly to the Eyes on Final Fantasy forums. We owe him a huge thanks for making EoFF what is today, both as an excellent administrator and friend.

fire_of_avalon
foa is a fantastic presence on EoFF. First off, she's hilarious. She contributes significantly to the forums by adding an intelligent and friendly spin to her posts. She serves as a big sister role to the forums, once serving as a Staff member. Needless to say, without foa EoFF would be a much, much, more unfriendly place. Also, she's a badass.

Jiro
Jiro is a nice guy who has a very jovial and likable presence, serving as a friend to many EoFFers. He is reliable and trustworthy, exhibiting an easygoing feeling through both the General and Final Fantasy forums. Jiro will just make you feel better when you need a buddy to cheer you up and just make you laugh and smile when you want it.

NorthernChaosGod
NCG is a riot and a half. He is such a hilarious fellow and never seizes to both amaze and entertain EoFF with his antics and tomfoolery. He's also a very nice guy as well, someone you want to hug and hang out with as well. It doesn't matter if he's sipping beer or repping your posts, NCG will keep you entertained and feeling extremely good about yourself.

Pike
Pike got me into MLP and Pike plays really awesome games. Pike is a total nerd but one of the sweetest and most intelligent people on the forums. She makes cool threads and gives a sense of color to the already eclectic forums at times. Pike just makes you feel good and you can't imagine EoFF without her.

Rantz Rantz Revolution
Rantz is another administrator, serving as a force of humor to EoFF. Rantz is a big poster, making fun posts and being very happy-go-lucky. I had a dream where EoFF didn't have him. I died and it wasn't very pleasant. :( Anyway, Rantz is a real positive force and he definitely makes EoFF a more enjoyable place for everyone.

ShlupQuack
I want my money back, Shlup. Anyway, Shlup is another iconic EoFFer, known for her excellent and witty psots, as well as a real sweet nature behind that facade. (Yes, it is merely a facade, she's really sweet wehn you get to know her...) Anyway, Shlup contributes significantly to EoFF with excellent threads and posts both serious and light-hearted alike.

So there you have it, the Super Seven. The Sexy Seven. The Stupendous Seven. EoFF's Best Member nominees! Thanks to all of you for making EoFF a better place. We love you!

Jiro

This is a speech for the losers. The nominees who didn’t make it, those who fell short of the finish line. You are still champions. While the Ciddies is not some glitzy and glamorous awards ceremony where the prestige of wining can catapult your career or the crushing defeat of losing end it, the Best Member Ciddie is still The Big One™.

Winning it can be likened to touching the stars for a brief moment – intense, quite painfully hot and sometimes lethal – just as it can be likened to winning an immaterial award for a popularity contest on a Final Fantasy fansite – shameful, disappointing and a little bit strange.

A victory can go one of two ways. It can be a recognition of services to the site in a variety of ways, most notable of which is kiss-assing and making people like you. High activity and high amounts of low-brow humour can contribute to this. In six months, at the next Ciddies, you’ll be up for nomination again. You’ll hang onto your title, and win a few more extras to boot as everyone deems you the new Psychotic, sweeping the Ciddies. Life is good man.

Alternatively, it can be the touch of death. You’ve reached your prime. Here, have a pat on the back as we shove you into the old folks’ home. You’ll be forgotten – not completely – but enough to ensure there’s a new kid on the block next time, a new favourite. A star. Winning the Best Member Ciddie is a signal to hang up your boots, retire from the spotlight and join Raistlin at the bitter oldbies table. You’ve done your time.

This speech is a message to the losers. A congratulations, in fact. You’ve dodged a bullet here. You haven’t won the Best Member Ciddie. You’re still popular, liked, perhaps even respected. People will nominate you for Ciddies and you will win some and lose some. But, at the very peak of the event, you miss out on Best Member and your continued existence is ensured.

Celebrate, friends, for it is here, in the Runners Up placings, that you have truly achieved the pinnacle of Eyes on Final Fantasy popularity. Relish in it. Embrace it. And hope next Ciddies is not the one where you kick the bucket.

But hey, it could be worse. You could win a Lifetime Achievement award. That’s less of a sign to retire and more a sign to die.

You got a whopping 0 votes. My formula must have not picked you up because of that (I generated these posts using Excel). You may have been the only person in a category to get 0 votes actualy. Quite a feat!

All self-deprecating jokes aside I'm pretty shocked. I don't see anything I do around here as anything out of the ordinary. I post because I like you guys and some idiot out there saw to it that I yearned for external communication and learned me to forums.

Funnily enough the entire reason I'm here is a person who is out of my life but EoFF stayed. Because, and this is honesty, you guys are some of the best people I've met. I wouldn't be who I am in my personal life, let alone online, without the influence of EoFF. (And by that I mean I wouldn't know a lot of useless internet memes.) So for this, and all the other things you've given me, I well and truly thank you. I'm happy to count so many of you as my friends.

Thank you, Del Tony, for hosting a smashing Ciddies. It was great fun and I had a blast being a part of it all.

So, when is my statuette coming in the mail, then?

Am I the only one who keeps her Ciddies updates on her Wiki page? These pages are lame.

Wiki is so underappreciated.

ONE, Thank you, bronies, for carrying me to Best Avatar! :love:

TWO, Thank you, EoFF in general, for voting me MLT Win a Ciddie for the Very First Time!

THREE, What in the great green hills are you all smoking to think I'm Best Writer? I mean it must be some seriously whacked out shit. I mean, uh, thank you. (I still think you're all nuts.)

FOUR, where did all this rep come from? No, seriously. What.

FIVE, I have no idea how I beat out Pontus, Jules, and Shlup in the Best Member countdown. It's like if Jar-Jar Binks beat out Han Solo, Yoda, and Princess Leia in the Best Star Wars Character countdown. No, really. WAT. (I'm so flattered, though.)

SIX, I LOVE YOU FOA YOU ROCK. AND SHARKY TOO. AND EVERYONE ELSE. <3 <3

I'm going to double post to say congratulations to all the other losers out there. You all did a great job being stepping stones for the winners. All of your hard work paid off in...all of your hard work was pointless. Garbage. Muck and vomit. Everything you do is just a big pile of shet to place beside the awesome splendor of the EoFF elite to make them look even better. You know, there are significantly more of us than there are of them so if we were to band together we could totally overthrow the arrogant pricks who lord their beautiful shiny magnificent awards over us year after year. Except they have all the power too. They get the girls. They get the awards. They run the show. They make us look like grandiloquent fools with their witty one-liners. This might not be our moment, but a time will come when their power wains and we will strike brothers and sisters and hermaphrodites! We will savage their corpses and spit on their memories!!! Fuck big brother. Fuck the powers that be! And fuck Raistlin out of fucking principle!

It was only ever going to be BoB. Though to be fair, it should have been FFXIV-2 and he wouldn't have to camp out as nobody would be queueing for it.

chionos
12-28-2011, 08:24 AM
I need something to witty say about BoB but I'm fresh out. Need a Best Award Qu ciddie next time. There also needs to be a Best chionos award, b/c my 12th year with EoFF should definitely not pass without a ciddie. 11 years is sad enough. There's no Britt anymore, no Unne, there's no reason for me not to have one. Also I don't know if I mentioned it before (rum and wine together apparently do not encourage memory retention), but Qu was extra special awesome this ciddies. Lynx, Jiro, FoA, and Dewicious were all extra super special, for serious.

Ace Protorney

I think BoB took advantage of this opportunity to take a break from the Ciddies, since he's usually the one in charge of whipping Award Guy doing all the work.

God dammit. I was so close. :( I would have felt like I was truly back to being a Big Time EoFFer if I'd won that!

foa, well done. sharky, well done. Talk about big winners and not the predictable types (at least, not at my end). I think you've both been fantastic lately and obviously a lot of other people thought so, too! Congratulations. :)

I would also like to congratulate Murd on running a very good Ciddies despite various obstacles he has come across along the way. It was a tight schedule, but you pulled it off and I applaud you for that. I also found some of the innovations to how you ran the Ciddies to be really good, so I'll be sure to pick up on some of them for 2012! A truly worthy Ciddies, indeed. Also, how long was it since you were the person I first invited to run the Ciddies instead of me? Five or so years? More? About time, you slacker. ;) :up:

There are rumours that FFXXIII will go back to the gameplay style of FFXX, which is great as while the global population really enjoyed the storyline of FFXXI and FFXXII, the smell-and-feel minigames felt extremely gimmicky. The sewers in FFXXII in particular were too much. Never again!

I have about 6,200 hours in EVE, if you don't consider being on both accounts at the same time to be cheating. Otherwise I think I would have about 4,000.
