View Full Version : Winter Ciddies - Speech Thread!

12-05-2016, 02:35 PM
OK slackers, get your arses in here and get writing some top quality speeches!

If you feel like writing one (you do) then simply post in the thread and I'll put your name next to it. If you're unsure how to approach writing a speech just remember there is no set way! You can break down the nominees individually, post pictures, do an audio speech or even a simple paragraph about the award. The choice is yours!

Claimed speeches will be in pink
Completed speeches will be in green

If you can get all the speeches over to me by 5pm US Central time (11pm UK time) on the 9th December 2016. We'll be all ready to go then on 10th December!

Thanks in advance, guys and gals!

I'll knock some random ones out!

12-05-2016, 05:24 PM
Thank you Freya for our first completed speech!

Also, thank you to everyone who has claimed speeches so far.


12-05-2016, 05:28 PM
I'll pop in later in the week and bang out as many as needed.

12-07-2016, 07:18 PM
I cannot promise anything, but I should have a few hours on Friday to hammer out some speeches.

Night Fury
12-08-2016, 01:37 AM
I will get mine done tomorrow or tonight - and like Shauna I will have spare time on Friday to hammer some out too if required!

12-08-2016, 08:24 AM
Brill, no worries! We always muddle through somehow anyway :D

I'll be grabbing any missing ones at the end anyway. If we focus on the higher numbers so Queen Award, First of her Name will have the first half of the Ciddies all ready to go. Thanks again, everyone!

Give me best artist, I'll try to whip something up.

EDIT: Wow, you guys seriously need more speeches taken. Then give me Cutest Couple, Best Regular, Best Veteran, Best Newbie, Funniest, Happiest, Craziest, Most Hardcore Gamer and Best FF Poster. Let me know if no one takes Best Writer - it's one that I don't want to claim right away since I'm nominated for that one, but I'll take it if no one else does (which I rally hope that someone will!). I'll have them by tomorrow the latest, promise.

12-09-2016, 11:39 AM
And #44 in as well.

12-09-2016, 11:46 AM
Ah, shit, add Best Avatar to that.

Dat Matt
12-09-2016, 11:51 AM
I'll take 36. Take the Iron Throne for now.

Queen Award, First of Her Name
12-09-2016, 02:23 PM
Look at you all go, your Queen is so proud. :love:

12-09-2016, 05:08 PM
Looks like I'm not going over able to get much done this time with speeches. Have a big exam tomorrow on Galois theory and I need this exam for my masters. I'll try to get one or two out.

12-09-2016, 08:27 PM
Couldn't find the time to write more today, but I'll deliver them on time tomorrow. I should be back from gym at around 11am GMT, so I expect that should be early enough? Considering my speeches are all in the later part of the ceremony

12-09-2016, 08:32 PM
That, and GMT is 5 hours ahead of me, so we won't be looking to start Ciddies for at LEAST a few hours after 11am GMT. ;)

12-09-2016, 08:33 PM
Also, if more speeches aren't claimed soon, drunk Vocaroo Jinx might make an appearance. Just sayin'.

12-09-2016, 09:28 PM
Ooooh. I was going to play video games this evening, but I can do that tomorrow.

Can I take Most Thought-Provoking Member, Best Let's Play and No. 33?

12-09-2016, 09:30 PM
You certainly can, Formy!

Had a bit of an emergency today but thanks everyone for getting to work. You are all amazing :D

12-09-2016, 09:59 PM
I can try one. Just tell me what you want with it. Would love to help if I can.

Night Fury
12-10-2016, 06:45 AM
Give me speech 50, 46 and 42. I can bash those out for the ceremony starting time!

12-10-2016, 08:35 AM
Thanks everyone for your contributions so far! There are still plenty of speeches to be claimed so if you're awake and reading this post then get one claimed!

We're very close to Ciddies start time!

12-10-2016, 09:26 PM
Good work, Nutty! Thanks for picking up the slack!

And they've all been really good so far! Where have you been all these Ciddies before?

12-10-2016, 09:29 PM
Wasn't sure what was really wanted, once I read one I knew what to do. But they do get worse. Used up all my A material.
