I was thinking that possibly SNN could start holding annual New Year's awards for stuff like Most Contributions, Best Fanart, and the like. Anyone second that emotion? -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 05:11, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

I am against. Featured User of the Month is one thing but is competition really neccisary on such things as art to articles?--Mystic Monkey 18:30, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

it's a bit of fun lighten up.--Cyrus The Hedgehog 18:45, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

Alright, we could get rid of the fanart thing but we could have a lot of different categories and give credit where credit is due, don't you think? -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 04:41, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

I have no problem with the idea, but I'd need some heavy convincing before we put it on the main page. What sort of categories did you have in mind? -- Supermorff 12:13, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

Best admin, most vandals caught, okay now im draw point-balnk...The Chosen One Of Fire

I'm sure we can add the category "worst admin" ;). We could add that and include "most mainspace edits (admin and non-admin)", "most templates created", "Best user(voted by admins)", "Best Forum (All 4 categories)","Most memorable event (nominations only)(examples include flaming competitions between User #1 and User #2, LB Controversy, etc.)". I'm sure there's more but this seems fun.--Milotheechidna 17:16, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

User #1 tyou. User #2 me. User #3, well there is no user #3.The Chosen One Of Fire

I know it's good to motivate progress but I fear that such competition may commit to a sub-social order where members feel higher among other members when all we want is for them to get along. I have started 21 articles and over 3,462 edit. Some have more and others have less than me but worry if we motivate in the wrong style then the littlest of arrogency could spin a lot of drama.--Mystic Monkey is at Diamond Dust Zone this Christmas. 19:04, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

then how about award's that can be given through vote's such as the best admin or somethin like that--Cyrus The Hedgehog 19:18, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

I think if there will be awards for such things as articles and contributions, it's about timing, like how about yearly? If it was Monthly then people will be on top of each other and the forums would be polluted by smug.--Mystic Monkey is at Diamond Dust Zone this Christmas. 19:28, December 23, 2009 (UTC)
