The First SDMB Little Guy Awards!


Here at the SDMB, we have a lot of celebrities. Esprix, Fenris, Flammy and many more whose names I will not make you read right now because you already know them. These dopers are well known, well loved (by most people anyway) and well... worded? What's the word I'm looking for here? Articulate! [/Bedazzled] Yeah, and articulate.

But what about the little guy? They get hardly any recognition. No big spectacular posts, no abysmally large post counts, no board-wide recognition, and in some cases, have obviusle knot red a dicshunaire.

This award (The SDMB Little Guy Award) was designed (by me) to let the little guy have some recognition without having to go to any extremes (whether trollish or otherwise). The SDMBLGA shall be held in the first week of each month, but nominations may be put in at any time.

That said, I give the First SDMB Little Guy Award to:

























KWYJIBO!!!

::teeming millions clapping their hands and cheering their brains out::


Will Kwyjibo please come forward and be recognized.

I chose Kwyjibo because he met all qualifications (that I saw, if he didn't... I'll give that award to someone else!), don't worry all you other little guys, you get a shot next month.


I now officially give permission to begin nominations for September's Little Guy of The Month.

Since this is the Little Guy award, to most non-dopers, yes. But to me, the big important person, you don't because you have too many posts. Once a doper hits 1000 posts, you are not eligible for the Little Guy Award. I forgot to mention that.

If nominated, I will not run. If elected, I will not serve.

















Unless there's a cash prize involved. Is there a cash prize? Man, I hope there's a cash prize.

I'll have to hold off posting until I get nominated... don't want to disqualify myself by breaking 1000 before my 15 minutes of fame!

OMG!

I don't know why I came into this thread, but I'm glad I did. (I think. )

Imagine my surprise when I scrolled down and saw my name.

Thanks Anubis.

I must ask though, what was the screen process? (Not that I am complaining, I'm an attention whore.

1,000 post limit? What about long time members with less than 100 posts?

I think the Little Bastard award should be given by the moderators. As in, "Look, you Little Bastard, unless there's a General Question, the thread doesn't belong here!" and "Cmere, you Little Bastard. Let me show you why cross-posting is bad."

Any takers?

Qualification rules, Plain & Simple


  • have less than 1000 posts
  • Not be 'famous' *
  • No more than 1 spectacular post under their belt
  • Not be a troll
  • can be either male or female


Kwyjibo, I chose you because you were the first person I cared to examine who met the qualifications. I didn't bother asking around for nominees.

And there is no cash prize. Sorry, Max Carnage.



*If a random doper is asked to name another doper off the top of their head and one doper is named by at least fifteen other dopers, that doper is considered famous.

::Holds up award::

You like me! You really like me!
(Or at least tolerate me.)

Thanks Anubis, but now that I am kinda famous, does that therefore disqualify me?

Me, a celebrity? No, I must be ever modest and humble, and challenge that description of myself. (or something) I am most definitely not articulate some of the time, but thanks for saying I am.

Hey, you're also taller than I am.. I'm only 4 ft. 11, or 5 feet even, on my good days.

Congrats, Kwyjibo! May this award long serve to enhance your name recognition factor! (this is the stuff I post while doped up on Neo-Citran, which is SUPPOSED to make me feel drowsy, but isn't, dammit!)

Congrats, Kwyjibo. You have your own stalker soon enough, and mooching distant relatives will starts crawling out of the woodwork.

Say, I'm not a celebrity here, am I? :Snickers, breaks out into laughter: Sorry, 'couldn't keep a straight face, either.

Now, about that October award, I may be six feet tall, but I'm a little guy too!

Wait, that doesn't sound quite right...

Well, if I get a bunch of threads about myself, some of which are actually (gasp!) complimentary, I can only surmise that I'm well-known round these here parts. [/Western impersonation]

2004?!? Nah.. you'll make it by 2003, easy.

Yeah, I do think you are well-known!

And if I keep responding to you, I will be ineligible by2003!

(I really do need to learn to debate in order to make more coherent and worthwhile posts. Sigh.)

I haven't really wandered far into the debate side of things, but maybe I will. Not that I have opinions on everything, but maybe I'll lurk.
