I think YWO should have nominations and awards for all the great works on the site for the New Years. GeorgeMicheal tried something like it, but it didn't get very far. But I think if everyone on YWO know's about it, then it could be successful!

That would be fun. We should have categories like say "Most Brilliant Writer" or "Funniest Person", stuff like that.

Exactly! At least someone knows what I'm talking about.^_^ We could also have things like, The best protaganist, the best antaganist, the most thought out plot, and the most favorable character. I think these awards will make YWO more interesting. Things like, The best Critiquer or the Most appreciated YWO member. There are many more I can think of that deal with art and poetry, too.

I don't think we should go for "the most appreciated", 'cos all of these categories should make the winners feel appreciated and if they lose the category for most appreciated, they'll feel like they aren't.

If we do this guys, we should start with only a few categories that are very very simple. Like Imelda said, YWO isn't very big yet. So we should try to just pick very basic categories.

I probably won't vote, knowing me. But I have category suggestions!

Most Similar to Carraka
Most Liked by Carraka
Most In Love with Carraka
Most Indulgent of Carraka

etc. What do you think?

Eh, seriously though, I don't know if I'll vote. I would if the votes were completely anonymous, but I don't know how we would manage that.

Well, I'd certainly win the second and third.

But seriously, yeah, small stuff for now.

Small stuff would be fine I guess, although I think we should wait for more members...
