CIDDIES DECEMBER 2013

Welcome, welcome EoFFers to my very first Ciddies! As your Ciddie Princess, I will be hosting this wonderful event to finish off what has been a most fantastic year for our little corner of the internet! :jess:

48654


All that I am doing right now, is announcing the nominations to be..... OPEN! That's right, from right this second you have exactly 1 week to get your nominations in! Now there are some nomming rules to abide by...

1. You can only nominate a maximum of 3 people for any one award. This means of course you can only choose to nominate 1 or 2, but you can only nominate up to 3! :jess:
2. You may only nominate any one member for a maximum of 10 awards only! This is to encourage a diverse group of winners. I mean, I know you all want to nominate Sephex for EVERYTHING, but.... you can't!


Got it? Good! Nominations will close 11pm GST+8 time (that's Perth time ;) ) on the 6th December! So get nominating, do NOT miss your chance to show your love for your favourite EoFFers! :D

In the meantime, keep an eye out for me, Award Princess around the forums! I will be posting all manner of puzzles, and giving out *special awards* to the people who are good enough to join in. ;)

Let's make this the BEST. CIDDIES. EVER!

Award list in the next post! :D

I am so happy with the creative awards this year! MLT Get Together is popular, but I think this replacement will do well (and let's be honest, it's the same thing, really).

Way to go, Award Princess!

Jiro
11-29-2013, 06:14 PM
I didn't even notice that MLT Get Together was missing but frighteningly my nominations for MLT Fight to the death match up with that too. All's fair in love and war huh.


Not usually a fan of whoring out my own stuff either but this post (http://home.eyesonff.com/timber-maniacs-hq/151026-tonight-alright-nsfw.html) is some of the best fanfiction ever written. Please consider me for Best Post/ Best Writer :jiro:

This is the hardest part of the Ciddies. There are so many deserving people who don't get mentioned. :(

11-29-2013, 10:40 PM
Most of my noms don't go through because not enough people believe, so I usually skip most of these now. I'll get in a few that I think are definitely fitting for the category.

You just have to employ bribery. Or, like, find someone lazy and just tell them to send in the exact same list as you. Everyone's a winner!

34. Biggest EoFF Nerd

I am sad to see Biggest FF Fangirl go, but at least we have another award tailor-made for Loony BoB.


39. Rule EoFF with an iron fist
40. Overthrow #39

I like these, and hope I win 40. Voters, don't let the Editor title fool you; as always, I am dedicated to the overthrow of EoFF's staff.

I'll be doing my noms during my weekend (so on Thursday most likely) - I am accepting bribes and favours in the meantime.

Why are you giving me the attention? :D

Also, noms sent in, except for Best Post because that requires RESEARCH.

Wow, best post? That is certainly precise.

Nah, you have to employ a different technique to get votes. Nominations are the easy thing, people don't care so much. But votes... votes are sacred.

Little disappointed in the lack of noms, though. Also there's a really good Mean Girls joke regarding the fact I got mine in first.

Cheating me out of Ciddies is what's happening. Seeing I was in good running to be Best Vet again, they slapped a new title on me, and there's not a chance that I'll be winning Best CK since most people will be like "lol Shauna isn't a CK".

When it comes time to vote, remember: Pike was too lazy to nominate. I'm not saying that means she's too lazy to do everything else, but, hey, the evidence points in a certain direction...

I work six days a week. Today was my first day off since nominations opened. :p

I nominated anyway. If they are accepted, cool, if not, oh well, no big deal.

There is no way to extend this, like, one more day? I mean, I put in my noms, but other's were confused/mislead. It shouldn't be that big of a deal.

But OpenOffice is perfectly capable of working with Word documents so you could still do that in with a Word document.

Also I use LibreOffice.

It's fine guys, it just means I'm going to have to tally the ones I just got tomorrow instead of today. I worked a lot today and I'm exhausted so it just means you all get one less day to vote! That is the cost for my generosity mwahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahah~~~~~~

Also it means you have to wait a day longer to see the nominations!

Also, I'm counting these up now, so I'm still not taking anymore - despite me saying they won't be posted til tomorrow, that is it for noms now. I've been leniant enough! Anyone who sends in noms now will get a nomination for themselves removed! :o

Loony BoB
12-07-2013, 11:46 AM
Yeah, I think I generally got about 50-60% of the votes in the first 24 hours, and then 20-30% of the votes in the final 24 hours. Everything inbetween is generally just for people who don't log in so much.

This is definitely true. I ran the Ciddies at a time when I wasn't even working every day, and last-minute (or late) nominations do add a lot to the workload.

So the lesson learned is that Denmark is a horrible human being who cannot be trusted.

Shorty
12-07-2013, 07:46 PM
I don't think anyone here who has participated in the Ciddies from an outside perspective underestimates it, nerds.

Having said that, I didn't pay attention enough to properly get my noms in early because Australian Timezones are the worst.

The nominations will be posted sometime today, and voting will open today!

While you wait for this, keep an eye out for me around the forum - I will be posting riddles here, there, and everywhere... and if you happen to know the answer, leave a message on my VM wall - if you're a newbie then PM the answer to me instead! There *will* be prizes for participation in this.... GOOD LUCK!
