    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I honestly had no idea. We don't really do eggnog here and I've never even had it, so all the more weird that I got nominated for this.

    Also, I'm not a Grinch. I don't take your presents to ruin your Christmas.

    I take them because I want more stuff.

    Eggnog was created by a guy who couldn't decide if he wanted to drink alcohol or pancake batter and just decided to do both.

    Thanks for all the noms people. Didn't really feel as active these last few months to deserve so many noms but I thank you all anyway.

    Embrace it, my brother. The "negative" categories are just for kicks. I got nominated for those, but I also realized that I popped off a few times in the past six months. It happens! EMBRACE IT!!! WE ARE THE GRINCH!!! HEARTS WILL GROW!!! AHHHHHHAHHAHAAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA!!!!!

    Actually though can I just remind everyone that we had to remove sexiest member becaus of the butthurt, yet most intimidating (which basically translates to 'most dickish') and Most Dramatic (basically biggest whingebag) are still on the list? There's a massive jump from an award like most friendly to then most intimidating which has all kinds of negative connotations, same with most dramatic. You can argue that most dramatic can mean something else but let's be honest, it is biggest tantrum thrower. I thought the ciddies were supposed to celebrate positivity?

    Feel free to vote me as most dramatic now to emphasise my point!

    Also thank you for the nomination for best writer. It's really touching, especially as I haven't actually shared any writing on here in like, the whole year.

    Wait, when did we "have" to remove any award? Sexiest was still there when I did it, and I don't remember any problems. One Ciddies host's choice does not mean it's a categorical ban. And for years, the Ciddies has been used for friendly mocking -- just look at nominations for MLT Get Together, or half of the things BoB or Steve have ever been nominated for. The personality awards are often the most fun, and should cover a range of personalities. I could just as easily interpret "intimidating" as an intelligent, intimidating personality. "Dramatic" could be used by voters to identify exuberant, excitable personalities. Each voter has their own reasons for nominating and voting how they do (see e.g., Shorty -- who is an unquestionable, and in fact unmatched whinebag -- and Sephex -- who is much harder to associate with any "whining" connotation and is more likely associated with being excitable), which is part of the fun.

    And one instance of moronic butthurt over a contested, actually positive and desirable award, means we can't have any fun and varied personality awards... why? Based on that logic, if we couldn't have awards that a lot of people would want, or would put some members above others, shouldn't we also eliminate Best Member- and Best Poster-like awards? Pretty soon you won't have any Ciddies left to give.

    EDIT: Also, upon reflection and a glance at the archives, I do remember some silly "controversies" over FFXIV-playing members and the way every Ciddies host ever has cut off nominations, but I don't remember what it was about Sexiest. I may just be getting old.

    EDIT2: Ahaha did I really come in second for Cutest that year? That is almost as amusing as my near-win for Sexiest the time before.

    I'm sorry if you feel uncomfortable with the current list of awards. However, it's done now and a lot of people are having fun with them and may interpret them in a different way. If you would prefer to have these awards removed in the future, please feel free to open a discussion about it in the Events Committee forum before the Summer Ciddies. In the meantime, hopefully you can enjoy the Ciddies as they are, and try to have fun with your friends anyway.

    I'm pretty sure the Ciddies are about having fun.

    I cant believe there's no MLT Get Banned this year. That award was awesome, the winner is like the rogue that can't be tamed, who's always sticking it to the man.
