View Full Version : Ciddies Nomination Time! EoFF Awards at their best! NOMINATIONS HAVE CLOSED!

:ciddie: :ciddie: STOP: Ciddies Time! :ciddie: :ciddie:

Hey yo. :aimsun: I'll be damned if I'm going to miss three Ciddies in a row! Although I'll note straight away that Award Pimp and Award Princess did a smurfin' awesome job. These guys keep me on my toes, you see - they help to add new things to the Ciddies while I focus on picking out my favourite traditional things about the Ciddies and combining it with some of the newer things. For example, I've kept the new system for Best Male/Female... I find it works out pretty well! However, at the same time, I've brought back a lot of old awards this time around... some are probably well known to many of you, while others haven't made an appearance for over a decade! Hopefully you'll find this all settles into a nice mix.

On another plus note, it also meant you got to check out that Award Princess. What a fox! It's been a really long time since we've seen a host in a dress. Sorry everyone - no chance of me doing that anytime soon. Everyone says I look best in either a suit, jeans and a t-shirt or the buff. :aimwink:

One more thing and I'll need your input on this one - expect an audio revelation alongside the normal thread/chat revelations! I'm currently weighing up Skype (easier for everyone to get involved as lots of people use Skype) and EoFF's TeamSpeak server (easier for group chats due to the high functionality such as turning up and down the volume of individuals). Please let me know what you think!

Alright, alright, I know what you're here for. Let's get this show on the road! Welcome, ladies and gents, to the 26th Ciddies! Let's party!

The Rules:
Rule #1 - You can nominate yourself for no more than three awards.
Rule #2 - You can nominate any one member for no more than five awards, excluding Cutest Couple.
Rule #3 - Do not post your nominations - PM them (http://forums.eyesonff.com/private.php?do=newpm&u=2986).
Rule #4 - PM nominations to Award Guy (http://forums.eyesonff.com/private.php?do=newpm&u=2986), not anyone else!
Rule #5 - PM your nominations by the closing date - this time around that'd be 24th May, 2014.
Rule #6 - Do not spam up the Ciddies Thread with self-advertising.
Rule #7 - You cannot make more than three nominations per award. If you do, I'll take the first ones you've nominated.
Rule #8 - You can't be nominated for avatar, custom rank and/or sig if you do not have an avatar, custom rank and/or sig - unless you remove them at some time during the Ciddies.
Rule #9 - Changes/additions can be made however often you like. Please title any PM's with Changes as 'Nomination Changes' or 'Vote Changes', and the same for additions (only 'Additions' should replace 'Changes' in the title. Duh).
Rule #10 - Nominations for Ciddie #43 must NOT be past Ciddies winners.
Rule #11 - People who are NOT currently couples shouldn't be voted as Cutest Couple - this is for people who ARE already couples.
Rule #12 - People who are currently couples shouldn't be voted as Most Likely To Get Together - this is for people who are NOT already couples. By 'Get Together', I mean 'Become A Couple'.

*deep breath*

Also - You don't have to make nominations for every award.
Also - When nominating, please think not of overall, but purely of the last six months. In other words, if someone was really helpful one year ago, and they don't help much now, they shouldn't get that award. This is purely for the occurrences of the last six months!
Also - All nominations are strictly confidential - the only other person with access to the Award Guy account is Loony BoB.
Also - You cannot publically post your nominations or votes until after the final voting has occurred - a thread can be made for them a bit after the results are shown.
Also - To be nominated into the second round for an award, a member must obtain two nominations in that award. However, should eight members all receive three nominations, then the cut-off will be raised to three nominations, and the same for eight members receiving four nominations each, and so on. The only exception to this rule will be if only 1-3 members will be cut, meaning it's not worth the change.
Also - I hold the right to reject any nominations/votes for any reason, most often this is that the member hasn't been active in the forums or chatroom in the past six months.
Also - For a list of past Ciddies winners, THE LIST (http://www.eyesonff.net/BoB/ciddiewinners.txt)
Also - Award Guy, Election Booth and second accounts are only allowed to be voted for the MLT (Most Likely To...) and Profile (Custom Title, Avatar, Signature) Ciddies.
Also - Banned members are only allowed to be voted for the Best Chatter and Most Missed Member Ciddies.
Also - If a member belongs to more than one group (e.g. Former Staff AND Site Staff) then they are eligible ONLY for the first of those groups to appear in the list. This covers Ciddies for Best Admin, Cid's Knight, Site Staff, Recognized Member/Former Staff, Veteran, Regular and Newbie.
Also - Let's keep it fun. GO! Nominate!

Nominations will close sometime this weekend. We'll say Saturday night (GMT) for now, and see how it all goes.

Both were in there last year, one of them both times! I hope for Best Blogger to return next time though - on this occasion it has indeed been sacrificed, but it certainly is a tough juggle. I had my proposed 100 awards cut down to 50 by that mean old bastard BoB. Harsh!

No advertising Psy! And Murd, you're out of the Admin category! You could win your first Best RM Ciddie for a decade, though! :o

You're doing it wrong. You're supposed to do your nominations last so that you can use them to bump up many worthy nominees into the finals.

Scotty_ffgamer
05-18-2014, 05:45 AM
So no one is in London yet. I wanted to show everyone how I rigged my costume to actually be able to perform the 1,000 Needles attack. This modification was almost a disaster though. Luckily, the guy I shot 1,000 needles at was just robbing a store. Unwittingly, I have become a cactuar-garbed vigilante. BoB, please come dressed as a chocobo and fight crime with me. Help.

On a serious note, I just got home from work and will be going early tomorrow it looks like so it might be a little bit before I can get nominations in.

Probably update the rules to reflect the current titles. Also, what does an official title count as? Last time, I could be nominated in Best Veteran but am I excluded because I am Recognized?

The Man
05-18-2014, 05:54 PM
I'm using the darkest forum skin there is, Faded Fantasy. There isn't any difference for me. I think you guys are still seeing a difference because you have the old image in your cache and it hasn't updated yet for you. If you load the image into a new window and do ctrl+F5 it should update.

Pike
05-18-2014, 06:04 PM
Oh okay. I had to put my nose like two inches from the screen but I finally saw the difference. Whoo!

Rantz
05-18-2014, 06:05 PM
I hard refreshed the image and the artifacts are definitely still there. Your monitor settings might be to blame if you can't see it.

The Man
05-18-2014, 06:06 PM
oh, I just looked again and it's definitely there now. I guess I was expecting a more significant difference from the way you people were all talking about it. Those dots definitely aren't "white", they're just a slightly lighter shade than the background.

05-18-2014, 06:08 PM

The last images blackmage_nuke posted definitely have a difference. He has the (admittedly tiny) little white parts blinking on the left image now, so if you still can't see the difference, I recommend visiting an ophthalmologist. Or at least changing your theme to NeoClassic where the distinction is obvious.

No further copy/pastes of Jiro's nominations will be accepted, it would be pointless to do so other than to increase the amount of time spent doing tallying work. You're better off to just pick out a random member for a random award and be done with it if you just want to get your name ticked off the list. If you intention is to be helpful and productive, though, it would be awesome to get some new nominations - almost every last one of Jiro's nominations have been sent in triplicate already, so it's extremely likely they have already made the finals...

I do encourage people working together to get people into the finals, but I prefer these people to actually work together to do so, discussing the options and picking out the best ones, rather than simply having one person's viewpoint sent in multiple times.

Are we having a drunk skype party this year on a weekend? Last summer was so much fun!
Just for anyone who missed it, please read the first post of this thread! Particularly the part in bold. This time around you may listen to the results being revealed live on either Skype or TeamSpeak - I'm yet to decide which I'll go with.

Skype
+ Skype has the benefit of auto-recording on my PC so I can easily save it and let people listen to it later on.
+ There's also the obvious benefit of a lot of people already having it!
- The downside is that it could be awkward when everyone is being noisy to keep the results churning out, especially if someone is really noisy or there are a lot of people.
- The other downside is that you need to have an account, and anyone in that room will suddenly know your Skype account once you're in the room.

TeamSpeak
+ TeamSpeak has the added benefit of people being able to mute or turn up/down the volume on particular people who happen to be obnoxiously loud or extremely quiet, so it's much more user friendly once you're in.
+ TeamSpeak also doesn't require any account creation.
- The downsides are that few people by comparison have it installed. They would need to download it and install it on their machine (http://home.eyesonff.com/showthread.php/152792-TeamSpeak).
- ...and that I would have to record it on some other system. Maybe Audacity or something, I guess?

Stream It?
+ Anyone can simply load a page and it'll work.
+ Will be a boring random window on my PC, perhaps even some Notepad or something, as I obviously don't want to show off the results ahead of schedule when I flick between Excel/EoFF/IRC/etc.
- It could cut out. Sadly I have a habit of my PC cutting out during streams...
- Little to no interaction with me.

The great thing about TeamSpeak is that people pretty much never mute people but rather just turn them down. On Skype sometimes people who have loud and quiet microphones mix up and it's really hard to hear some of those in the chat. TS? Just right click the name, they've got a personal volume setting, adjust until they're all about even!

You can also temporarily mute your own microphone and/or speakers. I was a massive sceptic of TS when I first tried it but it grew on me really fast. I wish Skype had such functionality! And the entire call doesn't drop out just because one person leaves. And you can make silly chatroom names and descriptions. xD

This actually happened to me my first Ciddies.

Happy Noodle Boy and I won MLT Get Together, I think we weren't quite seeing each other - or it was quite confusing and we were trying to figure it out. Maybe nominations happened before we had decided and were revealed before we had decided. Anyway, I remember we won by a landslide which was pretty cool as normally the jokey nominations win. So we rolled with it.

We weren't nominated for Cutest Couple at that point though, I remember Loony BoB trying to weasel the truth out of me but honestly there was nothing to tell at that point.

Also, I nominated! :) Good luck to everyone!

A lot of these categories are hard. Most Supportive Member? What the smurf is that? Also both Helpful and Productive were categories? Come on, BoB.

Yeah, Most Helpful and Most Productive kind of stumped me because they're very similar.

I took Most Supportive to mean someone who's always encouraging others or being there to talk if someone's down.
Yeah, I did the same with Most Supportive. For Helpful, I took it as, who generally helps members when they need help (other than Cid Knights, I guess)?, and for Productive, I took it as, who gets trout done? XD
Shockingly, using the accurate definitions of the words used in the award does a great job at defining what awards are for.

Anyone who thinks Productive and Helpful are more similar than Supportive and Helpful... :shobon:

The general aim of these awards is to give credit to people who go out of their way to make EoFF a better place.

Nominations will close very very soon.

NOTE: NOMINATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED

After talking it over with a few people this week, I'll probably give this TeamSpeak thing a go.

If you want to be first to know who is in the finals, be sure to get TeamSpeak downloaded and pop in!

Meet me in the Chocobo Stables there for great justice...

To those new to it, check this page out (http://home.eyesonff.com/showthread.php/152792-TeamSpeak). It's a simple download & install and no account creation is required!
