Fourth CSE Awards: Sunday, 10.30am BST


Recommended Posts

Roll up, roll up, for the fourth CSE Awards. This is where we reward the best Challenges, Sign-Ups, Experiments and Users of the past twelve months with an authentic chocolate-coated award! The annual awards have been running for four years now, with birdy123 taking the first two ceremonies and me now taking charge of my second.

The idea is simple: you get one vote in each category. In the voting form, which follows this post, simply delete the two choices that you do not want to vote for before sending it off. You need to send your forms to siforumawards@googlemail.com, so you’ll want to copy the form into your personal email before altering it with your choices. You then need to claim your vote in this thread. This way, if your votes don’t get to me, I will know that I should have them. If you don’t know anything about the threads or users nominated, read the small descriptions provided by me and my team.

I’d like to thank all of those who helped with the planning stages of these awards, and there are a lot of planning stages. BenArsenal, Lower Leagues Rule, PluckaDuck and Whoopy D helped me with the initial planning; they, dafuge and PaulHartman71 nominated; and BenArsenal, dafuge, Lower Leagues Rule and Whoopy D helped narrow down the nominations and write the citations you see below. I’ve put the name of the author alongside each nomination citation, and the award descriptions were also shared about.

Challenges

Best Challenge

The award for the ultimate challenge, the one that stands out above all the others, a challenge that is completely out of this world. The Best Challenge in the year of Football Manager 2010.

dafuge’s FM10 challenge

Author: dafuge

The original challenge, this is the one that got it all going in our forum. It is seen by many as the gateway to the CSE forum, and many users have a history in this challenge. The aim is to take a newly-promoted side from the Blue Square North/South all the way to the Premier League and to the Champions League title. Lower Leagues Rule

FM10 Small Club to Big Club Big Euro Nation Challenge

Author: iacovone

A slow starter in 2008, over the past two years this challenge has ballooned into the juggernaut it is now. The aim here is to take a newly-promoted club from one of the Big European nations (Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Portugal, Netherlands, Scotland, Turkey) and take them to victory in their nation’s top division, and then to the Champions League. LLR

Continental Dominance Challenge

Author: AcidBurn

One of the new challenges for 2010, this was a latecomer in the year, but it has picked up a very good following early on. The aim is to win all six continental titles in one career game. Starting unemployed, you must accept one of the first two jobs offered to you, then, moving through the world, take on and win on every continent. LLR

Hardest Challenge

This award is for the challenge that is considered to be the most difficult to complete, but at the same time it must be enjoyable to attempt.

The FM ‘Give Youth A Chance’ Challenge

Author: Stephanie McMahon’s Secret Lover

This challenge requires you to attempt to take a club from the 10th tier of English football all the way to the top, just without signing anyone. With only the youth players to call upon, this is surely the ultimate test of tactics, man management and luck. dafuge

Gundo’s FM10 European Adventure Challenge™

Author: Gundo

The aim of this challenge is to take a club from one of Europe’s smaller nations to domestic and European glory. While the domestic challenge may be straightforward for an experienced manager, the real challenge comes in the form of the European football, where you need to compete with the likes of Barcelona, Inter and Chelsea. d

Continental Dominance Challenge

Author: AcidBurn

A continental win can often be hard enough in itself, but this challenge requires you to do it in six different continents. Starting unemployed means the first win may well be the most difficult, although GenieScout is a legitimate option if you are having difficulty. d

Most Enjoyable Challenge

Which challenge brings the most enjoyment to our community? Well just wait and see, as it is going to be one of the below. Vote for the challenge you had the most fun playing or reading.

dafuge’s FM10 challenge

Author: dafuge

This challenge attracts more users than any other as they attempt to take a small club, like Staines, to the Champions League, and they must have fun or they wouldn’t come back year after year. Is this the challenge that our users have most fun playing, competing in or simply following? LLR

FM10: English small club to big club challenge: extended edition

Author: roberto922

In Football Manager 2010, it became much easier to add the lower leagues, or even whole new countries. This meant a whole new area for challenges, and when the main challenges decided not to extend themselves, we saw the addition of the ‘extended’ version. In this challenge, you must take a club from below the Blue Square leagues in England and win the Premier League and Champions League. The question is, does bigger equal more fun? LLR

FM10 Small Club to Big Club Big Euro Nation Challenge

Author: iacovone

The second most popular challenge in the CSE forum, a small fry in its first season was held together by two users alone, but in 2009 this challenge grew and in 2010 it has become a force to be reckoned with. Some must think of it as an enjoyable challenge or it never would have grown the way it has, and expansion this year has brought in a new crowd, but is it fun enough? LLR

Most Popular Player

This award is intended for a footballer who has become legendary through the threads on the CSE Forum. It could be a world-class superstar or a lower league legend, as long as they have caught the imagination of the CSE Forum.

Jérôme Hebert

He has become a club icon at FC Libourne-Saint-Seurin, and manager Paul Hartman loves the 32-year-old Frenchman, who has played on the wing for over a decade, can play in defence as well and has shown some great skills, becoming a fans’ favourite and winning the Fan’s Player of the Year crown multiple times. Hebert came through the youth academy in 2018 and stepped straight into the first team, becoming a much-loved player in the Big Euro nation challenge. LLR

Andrew Smylie

Born in Gundo’s FM08 Challenge thread, this year Andrew Smylie reached the pinnacle of his career as he finally reached 3000 career goals before finally retiring, at the age of 39 with a total of 3145. The word legend doesn’t do him justice. d

Chris Higgins

Chris Higgins is a rare breed; a striker with an incredible goal rate in the Premier League. With a career average of 1.85 goals per game, 1757 goals at club and 391 at international level, he is something of a freak of nature. d

Best Challenge Idea

It seems to be increasingly difficult to come up with ideas for original challenges now, so this award celebrates those who have the best new ideas.

WW’s FM 10 International Champions League & Knockout Cup Competitions Challenge

Author: Walcott’s Wonderkids

International challenges are usually quite rare due to the lack of action for the manager, so this challenge aims to rectify that by completely changing the structure of international football. In a truly unique database, this challenge brings the involvement of club football to the international scene. d

FM10 – Oops! We’re going the wrong way!

Author: Egon Petri

The bizarre-sounding aim of this challenge is to do as badly as possible, with the specific aim of plunging a Premier League team out of the football system through poor management. A clever set of rules means it is not quite as easy as it sounds. d

The Goal Machine Challenge

Author: jordanswinburn

This is a great, quick, interesting challenge where the simple aim is to try and get as many goals as possible from a striker who is not known for his goal scoring. Is any manager capable of turning Emile Heskey into a 30-goal-a-season striker? d

Secret Award (to be announced)

Sign-Ups

Best Sign-Up

The sign-up you think has been the best this year, pure and simple.

FM10 Top2Bottom

Author: Greasy Chip Butty

There have been several attempts at Create-a-Club style sign-ups over the years but few make it past the first stage. This is a perfect example of how to do it and do it right. The kits, the chairman and everything in between were decided by the users and the quality of Greasy Chip Butty’s updates is quite superb. Whoopy D

The Afrovision Managerial Contest

Author: canvey!!

This sign-up can be just as much about politics as it can be about results. Users progress in this competition on the back of votes from their peers so it’s important that you either perform on the pitch or have some very good friends to help you through to the final. Bargain, beg or borrow – just do whatever it takes to make sure you get maximum votes. WD

Avoid the Drop with Nigel Quashie & Hermann Hreidarsson

Author: Charlesbeams

In most player-based sign-ups the idea is to achieve great success, winning league titles and Champions League medals, however, in this sign-up, that has become a secondary objective, behind avoiding relegation. Sure, if you manage to win the league, you’re happy about it, but mainly because it means that once again, you’ve avoided the drop. A very well-run sign-up which introduces a nice spin on the usual format, keeping everyone on the edge of their seat as they wait to see how their season turns out. WD

Best Sign-Up Idea

Not all brilliant ideas result in successful sign-ups, and similarly, not all successful sign-ups have brilliant ideas. This award is for the most inventive sign-up idea, whether the sign-up took off or not.

Destination Europe: Are You Ready?

Author: PaulHartman71

A new and refreshing way of considering team performances. PaulHartman71 takes the results of the teams involved in the sign-up to generate points, which help the users in a jetsetting voyage around Europe, where antics ensue. canvey!!

The Commonwealth Games

Author: Lower Leagues Rule

Lower Leagues Rule splits football into 14 events in his sign-up themed after the quadrennial sports event of the same name. Not only is this sign-up a unique idea, but in it are novel ways of interpreting the statistics in FM, such as a player’s Shots on Target percentage helping them in the archery event. c!!

Avoid the Drop with Nigel Quashie & Hermann Hreidarsson

Author: Charlesbeams

It’s quite a simple idea but that just goes to show that there are plenty of gems of ideas about that have not yet been unearthed. The premise is to stay in the game by making sure your player never gets relegated, ever. c!!

Best Sign-Up Team Name

You can’t have a good sign-up without a good team name! No, that’s not true, but some creators go to great lengths to think up names for their sign-up teams. Here, we try to recognise the best of some of the witty and sometimes inspirational names on offer in the past twelve months.

Volvo FC

Creator: Charlesbeams

Subtly witty, Volvo FC replaced Vauxhall Motors in the Blue Square North. They enjoyed plenty of success in the English league system, but the real credit must go to Charlesbeams, who saw the opportunity in Vauxhall Motors, and pounced on it. c!!

Canadian Mighty Squirrels

Creator: rancer890

What a silly name, squirrels aren’t mighty! Such a display of patriotism and delusions regarding Sciurus carolinensis by rancer890 must have caused millions to titter, and so this team gets into the nominations here. c!!

Nordic Thunder

Creator: Dumax

There’s nothing quite like thunder to strike fear into your opponents. In fact, Scandinavian weather phenomena seemed so popular that Helsinki Hurricanes could also be seen in Top2Bottom. Nordic Thunder is just a brilliantly awe-inspiring name. c!!

Best Failed Sign-Up

Some sign-ups just aren’t meant to be. Due to other commitments, many good prospects never make it off the ground. Still, we try to recognise those threads here.

The Commonwealth Games

Author: Lower Leagues Rule

This started with a bang, and delivered high-quality updates and an exciting format. Unfortunately, it never became the sign-up it should have been, although it had the potential to leave a strong legacy. c!!

Oil Money to the World Cup (FM10)

Author: Welwyn

This sign-up developed plenty of interest from those signing up to poach uncapped footballers for their new Middle Eastern nations. Unfortunately, it never got past the draw phase despite showing so much potential. c!!

The Real Dream Team

Author: psg9hoarau

A really promising sign-up with well-written updates, the Real Dream Team focused on a batch of footballers starting at a dream team club in France. Well-researched, it didn’t make it past the first season, but got strong support and looked like it would work its way up to be among the sign-ups of the year. c!!

Best Standard of Sign-Up Updates

Part of what makes a sign-up successful is the standard of updates. Well-written, interesting and regular updates tend to draw in and retain participants, and this award rewards those authors who have committed to produce quality updates consistently.

60 to One

Author: canvey!!

Originally started a year ago as a joint effort by canvey!!, Ridleys and weeeman27bob at the helm, this sign-up has evolved into a ‘Last Man Standing’ contest, in more ways that one. canvey!! is the remaining author, and with regular and detailed updates such as these, it’s not hard to see why it remains so popular after so long. BenArsenal

The Afrovision Managerial Contest

Author: canvey!!

canvey!!’s second entry in this category is a testament to his consistency in running and maintaining sign-ups. Timely and entertaining updates like this in a Eurovision-style contest have both readers and participants hooked, to see who is the next African country to progress, and who has fallen by the wayside. BA

The Elimination Challenge

Author: Dees-Blake

The idea is not new, but Dees-Blake’s elimination challenge stands out thanks to its comprehensive and detailed updates such as this one, which let participants know who is the top points-scorer and who has been eliminated. BA

Experiments

Best Experiment (to be announced)

Best Experiment Idea

This year has seen considerably fewer successful experiments than previous years, but we have seen some good ideas. In most cases, these failed to take off, but it’s the creativity of the users that we are recognising here.

AI Experiment: The Immortals

Author: Dees-Blake

Dees-Blake took a poor team with a huge reputation and plonked them in the deepest recesses of the English football pyramid. The experiment, in its short lifespan, showed us how important reputation is, as ‘The Immortals’ started cruising their way to victory. Unfortunately, it ended prematurely with the team atop the Wessex League Division One, but it was one of the better experiment attempts this year. c!!

How do “Person Stats” truly affect player growth? – Experiment

Author: Holyehsauce

The intention of this experiment was clear, and unfortunately the well-thought-out idea failed to materialise in the form of a long-running experiment. Holyehsauce created identical players but for different person stats, and even made some conclusions early on, for example how Loyalty affects reputation more than Ambition does. c!!

Youth Intake Analysis

Author: roversawh7

Arguably the only successful experiment this year, roversawh7’s dedication to his work has been the best part of it. Still, the idea behind it was sound, and the experiment focused on England and Austria, and on Blackburn and Grazer AK. It has stood the test of time and is truly different to the other experiments of the year. c!!

Users

Best User

CSE is very much a community forum, and as with most such forums, it is dependent on users who contribute in making the forum conducive for all involved. This award honours those who have done their part to make CSE such a welcoming place for other users, visitors and participants.

canvey!!

CSE’s moderator appointed for 2010, canvey!!’s contribution throughout the forums over the years has been nothing short of immense. Aside from running two popular sign-ups currently, 60 to One and the Afrovision Managerial Contest, canvey!! is also very much a people person, always willing to commit to this community, including the organisation of these awards. BA

Greasy Chip Butty

Winner of the User of the Future award in 2009, Greasy Chip Butty has gone from strength to strength in the past year. His popular FMX-Factor made it to three seasons, while he is also responsible for Top2Bottom and the FIFA 2010 CSE World Cup sign-ups this year. BA

Lower Leagues Rule

A familiar name around CSE, Lower Leagues Rule’s contribution has been consistent; he is always willing to offer his help in challenges or in sign-ups. A truly valued member of the CSE community, his sadly underrated Commonwealth Games sign-up is among his numerous efforts in the forum this year. BA

Best Contribution to a Challenge

There are numerous ways to compete in a challenge, whether by completing it, by providing good reports or by helping others. Each of these has added, in their own way, that little bit extra to one or more of the challenges here.

daemonic

As always, daemonic has set his sights on completing multiple challenges again this year. This has resulted in multiple incredible save games, a multitude of season reviews and a contribution to a variety of challenge threads here in CSE. d

Lower Leagues Rule

One of the stalwarts of the Big Euro Nation Challenge, his epic season reviews that wear the scroll wheel out on your mouse are something to behold. Along with his own reports, Lower Leagues Rule has also contributed an awful lot to the general spirit within that thread. d

rlipscombe

Another regular in the Big Euro Nation Challenge, rlipscombe has produced superb updates on his own exploits with FC Venezia and provided constant encouragement and discussion for others in the thread. d

Most Reliable User

There are certain users you know you can depend on. They are always there, come rain or shine, or at least they do things when they say they will, and don’t leave you in the lurch.

canvey!!

His appointment as moderator in April of this year is testament to the commitment he has shown to this forum. His determination to stick to everything he starts and see it through is one of the reasons his threads are so popular. When he says something will be done by a certain date, you know it will happen. d

Lower Leagues Rule

Never afraid to take on a big task, Lower Leagues Rule can always be relied upon to put the hours into anything he starts. Along with his own projects, he is also involved in a number of other threads and consistently makes great contributions. He is the sort of person you want involved when you start something. d

rancer890

Probably best known for his challenges, rancer890 has truly brought a global flavour to the CSE forum. Through everything that he has done, you know that it will be well-planned and thought through. Again, he is another person whom it is great to have involved, as you know he will contribute greatly. d

Most Helpful User

Ever needed help finding a challenge? Ever needed some help setting up or running a sign-up? Ever wanted some feedback on an idea? That’s what this award is all about, helping newcomers become part of the CSE community as well as making it a nicer place for those already here.

Lower Leagues Rule

Lower Leagues Rule is always on hand to make suggestions when people come forward with an idea and is more often than not able to answer any questions they might have. An encouraging and friendly posting style makes any new users feel instantly at home. WD

canvey!!

As if he wasn’t helpful enough before, canvey!! now has super moderator powers to go with his already glowing reputation. If anybody needs anything, canvey!! will do his best to make sure it’s done in his never-ending quest to make CSE a better place. WD

dafuge

CSE’s senior moderator, if you will, has always shown how helpful he can be. When a request is made in his Tooting & Mitcham thread, he has no qualms about uploading a screenshot, something which not everybody would go to the trouble of doing. He is also always ready to lock threads for people and to dispense justice, piping hot, with a firm but fair hand. c!!

Funniest User

Why so serious? We know what we do here won’t be ending world hunger, so it’s important to be light-hearted. Here is our selection of the wittiest users of the past year.

PaulHartman71

The creator of arguably the funniest sign-up this year, Destination Europe, PaulHartman71 has always been ready for a joke or two. Pirates, fat people and Americans were all fair game for Paul, and he kept his humour at just the right point between wit and offense. c!!

Kenco

You’d have to have a strong sense of humour to name yourself after a coffee brand, and one of the posts demonstrating Kenco’s ability to make people laugh is in his World League Predictions Game, where he delayed an update because ‘an ol' seadog came into port, so [they] spent the night in a few taverns on the rum and ale, scouring for hearty wenches.’ c!!

weeeman27bob

Although his attempt to bring back the CSE Enrichment didn’t seem to last very long, he injected plenty of humour into his story ‘Sex, Pies and Red Tape’. The tale of CSE taking over Worcester City saw NepentheZ winning the club in dance-off (according to some), super_lampard being a bit too well-groomed, and Ridleys wearing tweed. c!!

Most Missed User

In this last year, English football has lost many great men, including Keith Alexander and Besian Idrizaj. The forums have also lost a great moderator in Serpico. Fortunately, these next three users haven’t died, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t left an important legacy on the forum. These users have moved on, much to our loss, but we hope one day they’ll come back.

Walcott’s Wonderkids

He has not quite disappeared completely, but it is fair to say that his presence in CSE has been missed. A previous winner of multiple CSE awards, his sign-ups in particular were superb. d

kipfizh

He may not have had a great presence in CSE, but he brought the legendary series of Bandits threads to the forums, which really set the standard for the AI Experiment. In fact, he may be guilty of setting the standard so high that it has scared everyone else off starting any! d

mikeytwigge

I’m not quite sure how he has managed this, but this user was probably more famous for being away from the forums than on them. His mysterious disappearance and reappearance about this time last year gave him a weird cult status. Strangely enough, his account seems to have disappeared. d

User of the Future

Of course, when we have such great members leaving us every year, we need a solid supply of new members who can show the friendly and dedicated attributes we like to see here. These three users have impressed in a short space of time in CSE, and we have high hopes for them.

Charlesbeams

Charles has been around the forum for a couple of years now, starting with his participation in dafuge’s FM09 Challenge. But this year, he has hit new heights, running two successful sign-ups, Volvo FC and Avoid the Drop with Nigel Quashie and Hermann Hreidarsson. Charles has shown dedication and a friendly attitude, and is a great example of a new user. c!!

Dees-Blake

Dees-Blake is newer on the scene, but has already shown he can write quality updates for a popular sign-up. Although he started with a short-lived experiment, The Immortals contained detailed updates and gathered a squad of followers in a short space of time. His real pièce de résistance is the Elimination Challenge, an enjoyable and reliable sign-up. c!!

AcidBurn

AcidBurn may be a familiar face for some of us, but this is the first time he has made waves in CSE. A General Discussion stalwart, his Continental Dominance Challenge, his first thread here, is already being touted as among the challenges of the year. c!!

Overall

Best Community Spirit within a Thread

This award emphasises the need for a strong community. Give this to the thread that has shown a strong community, with nice banter and a friendly atmosphere.

Destination Europe: Are You Ready?

Pitting five teams of three against each other is bound to create some interaction. And what positive spirit has come out of this thread, aided by PaulHartman71’s humour, which saw one user post a picture of a windmill! Plenty of banter ensued when Team Oceania, as usual, found themselves well behind the rest of the world. c!!

The Afrovision Managerial Contest

This sign-up subliminally encourages community spirit as the building-up of good relationships with other managers is likely to aid your nation in its quest for glory. Interaction and banter with other users is almost essential if you want your African nation to prosper, which creates some great exchanges between users. d

FM10 Small Club to Big Club Big Euro Nation Challenge

This thread is probably the most close-knit of all the challenges, but that doesn’t exclude new users participating. Any people taking up the challenge are welcomed with encouragement, while those several years in help each other with tactics, transfers and scouting. The well-presented updates are always rewarded with congratulations, if a user did well, or commiserations, if a user did badly. c!!

Forum that Stole the Most of Our Users

This award is just a bit of fun, but I’ve noticed a drain of some of our users in recent times. It’s time to point the finger, and find out just who has been pinching our buddies!

FM Career Updates

One of the biggest problems with CSE was that we weren’t sure whether Career games fit in here. When the Career Updates forum was started, a lot of our middle-men flocked there. Heck, even dafuge, who also moderates that sub-forum, has a 13-page thread there. c!!

Off Topic Discussion

Who knows why anyone would want to talk about anything instead of just about Football Manager Challenges, Sign-Ups and Experiments? Off Topic Discussion has threads for many things, including parents, students and nuns. Okay, I was joking about the nuns, but I can see why we lose a few users to OTF every year. c!!

World Cup Forum

Every four years (except for 1974, 1978 and 1994), the nation goes World Cup crazy, and SI Games have to open another forum to accommodate all that craziness. Even games such as Denmark versus Cameroon became of utmost importance (sorry MikaelS), meaning Challenge attempts were put to one side. c!!

People’s Choice Thread

This award is down to you. Perhaps you want to recognise a thread as being eons ahead of its competitors, or give the spotlight to a thread you feel we’ve omitted. State here your favourite thread of the past twelve months.

People’s Choice User

To the world, you may be one person. To one person, you may be the world. Just because a user isn’t in the running for the big awards doesn’t mean you shouldn’t choose them here. You can show your appreciation for your favourite user of the past year.

Voting Form

Use this to cast your votes, and send them to siforumawards@googlemail.com. Do not post them in the thread, but you’ll need to claim them here, and your votes need to be identifiable as yours, so include your username if it isn’t clear.

Last year, we kept abstinence to a minimum and that is the attempt this year. Try to avoid abstaining on any awards: if you’re not sure, read the write-ups provided by me and my team. It is compulsory to vote in an award where you are nominated (but you can’t vote for yourself, obviously), and that includes the People’s Choice Thread and the People’s Choice User.

The instructions again: delete two of the nominations from each of the categories below, leaving the one you are voting for. Send your form to siforumawards@googlemail.com and claim your votes here. Don’t forget your vote for the two open awards as well.

Voting now, guessing i cant vote for myself ;)?

BenArsenal said the same thing last year, and, like last year, it's in there somewhere that you can't vote for yourself (second post, second paragraph, second line, in brackets) :).

just realised that i've been nominated for my first ever award after about 3-4 years of being ni the thread!! "Best Contribution to a Challenge" - Thanks a lot. thanks a lot for those who shortlisted and thanks to dafuge for the great write-up. i only wish my Venezia save hadn't crashed with me closing in on completion....

I just had an idea for the theme we discussed about.

We should do it from Canvey Island. Why? Because:

1) It is an actual place

2) It'll be a bit of fun and ribbing at our hardworking canvey!!. Where better to host the CSE Awards than his very own island?

It's on a break, Ridleys still hasn't finished his lap of the training ground yet, so there isn't much to write about.

It's nice to be recognised though, and who knows, I may well have a look at it in the near future :)

Sorry about missing the last part of nominations. I received a weekend call-away by the Navy, completely unexpected and had no time to prepare. I will go through and make my votes pretty soon, but I agree with Ben's idea of staging the awards on Canvey Island :)

Well everyone, we are in the final countdown now with less than 18 hours to go before he cuts off the voting, if you haven't voted and want to please get them in asap. If you have voted, then thank you very much and get ready for the results. If you have been nominated then the best of luck for you as we go into the awards ceremony.

I'm back, and browner than Nick Clegg's nose.

I haven't looked at the votes yet (apart from the few I got time to before I went away) but will do that now.

I hope all of our friends in New Zealand and Southern Australia are alive and well. The awards ceremony will take place sometime before September 18th.

@PluckaDuck: No worries :).

Voting is now closed, if you hadn't already realised.

I have 20 sets of votes, and there is one claimant here whose votes I haven't got, who I will PM. I'm afraid that's only two-thirds of last year's voting total. One person didn't identify themselves in their votes (Kenco *tuts*) so I had to identify those from the time and with my moderator's intuition. I'll also be chasing up a few people for not voting in the people's choice awards, which are mandatory.

I have 20 sets of votes, and there is one claimant here whose votes I haven't got, who I will PM. I'm afraid that's only two-thirds of last year's voting total. One person didn't identify themselves in their votes (Kenco *tuts*) so I had to identify those from the time and with my moderator's intuition. I'll also be chasing up a few people for not voting in the people's choice awards, which are mandatory.

I was just testing your moderator's intuition, of course!

I've got one user who needs to submit an amended vote. I'll give him until midday tomorrow to do that (he's not been online in five days). If he doesn't, I'll consider what to do and then give you an awards show time, sometime within the next ten days.

Okay, the awards will be Saturday night at about 8.30pm BST. If our Australian and New Zealander friends get up early enough, it's a breakfasttime awards show for them.

That's 4:30pm EST. I won't see the awards show live as I'm out. :(

Looking forward to it though nonetheless.

Unless I'll be burning the midnight oil, it'll be in the middle of the ZZZ time for me.

As always. Sigh.

You can't really expect things being done on a UK-based forum to be time-tailored to Singapore time. I'm sorry if you're disappointed but I'm trying to get it at a manageable time in two continents - a third is just unpracticable.

It's not a pop at you canvey. I'm just lamenting my fate of being in a different time zone as everyone else.

Sorry, our phone line just went dead so I had no internet. I tried to get a warning through but I obviously didn't succeed. I want to get this completed before I move in a week's time, so I'll do it tomorrow. The morning might be best, as it would catch both the Europeans and the Australasians, although it doesn't quite feel the same if it's not in the evening.
