Tranfans Newbie Of The Year Awards 2005: Nomination Round.

If the Ivory Tower is the brain of the board, and the Transformers discussion is its heart, then General Discussions is the waste disposal pipe. Or kidney. Or something suitably pulpy and soft, like 4 week old bananas.

Tranfans Newbie Of The Year Awards 2005: Nomination Round.

Post by Predabot » Mon Jan 02, 2006 3:20 am

Yeah, it's that time of the year again. The annual measuring and poking of the newbies, to check who's the best of the new lot. :)

So, post your nominations here, and the poll will come up to pick a winner amongst them! :D

As ussual, the winner of the Award, will get a brand-spanking new Golden Signature and Avatar (new for this year!!) designed mostly by moí, and slightly, possibly if he's got the time and will, by Impy.

Now then, let's round up them new guys!

EDIT: Nominees so far:

1. Autobloke - A serious contender. 2143 posts folks!

2. Scraplet - Can a wee scrap of n00b truly know so much about Transformers??

3. Inflatable Dalek - Time-lord of the Essex Moor. Taxis are for mortals, first class travels in Tardis.

4. Uberking Robert - I'm the new king of the... Kingdom damnit!

5. Young Rocker - I'm a punk-rocker, yes I aaam!

6. adam.creighton - Good ol' Adam..

7. Snowcat - Heere kitty, kitty

8. bumblemus prime - I've got a Bumblebee-toy from 84

9. Laserwave - Lasers! High-pitched sounds! Flashy colours!

10. Manchester Devil - He's the devil himself! Except when he's drunk...

11. BATMAN - Dark, avenging alter-ego of.... <-- They removed me.

The Batman.


EDIT: A few more nominees have been added, and I removed the IDW-staff. :o They were just too darn elite.

EDIT2: Yaya has been removed, per discretion.

EDIT3: BATMAN is OUT of the poll, since no-one but me and Besters can figure out his secret identity! And I'm not telling! :p

Hmm, I like talking TFs with Scraplet.
I like talking Doctor Who with inflatable dalek.
adam.creighton's been incredibly generous lending out his beast machines dvds.
Autobloke wrote 2143 posts(!) before vanishing into the ether.

But never mind all that! ;) I'm voting for EJSu: its great to see a TF artist joining in with a community, taking criticism on the chin and just being a top bloke. Yes sir indeed.



I believe previous winners include:
Jawbreaker 2003
KingMob 2004
?

You made a slight miscalculation. :) It was a close race last years contest, and Kingmob almost won, but the winner was: Image

Never mind that he is and was permanently banned at the time of the award. :D

Top post updated with nominees.

Did Autobloke really debute in the year 2005??

EDIT: I put the wrong sig in first... Also, are we certain that Inflatable Dalek is not just another of Brends alt-ideas?? :???: It sounds just like him.

Didn't OPR win in '04? I thought I was honored to lose to him.

I would vote for Batman, but his good friend, billionaire playboy Metal Vendetta, will probably use his money to fix the race.

Scraplet. Or Autobloke. I'm torn!

There is no poll-fixing or alt-IDing here. Look into this, please:

Thankyou for your vote for Batman, sir or madam.

edit:
last year's final:
http://transfans.tfarchive3.com/phpBB2/ ... php?t=2662

pred's sigs should be made into business cards.

speaking of punk rocker's, that's reminded me of another guy for your list, preds. That guy who was all like the greatest punk rock fan in the universe.
*looks at memberlist*

Yeah. Young Rocker

A-ha! So it was EmmVee that was supposed to carry that sig around? :lol:

Well, maybe he can do so now, anyways? :D

You probably lost out against Prime Rib in one of the semi-finals last year. Last years contest was such a big spectacle, that it required several polls and votes. Even tho I pretty much promised that this year would be even bigger, I have now come to my sences. This year will be much smaller in scope.

What about Optimusprime Rib?

Did he join 2005?

He makes me laugh so I was gonna give my vote to him.

Otherwise, for the counting gag I'll vote for Yaya :D

Was Uberking ever seen again replying to the threads he started?

I asked him about three times why he hates Sweden - but he never replied.
Does he still post here somewhere?

Even better!

Hmm, I'll just clear this up. I hate everybody in this forum but me and I wish everybody in this forum but me would die by explosive diarrhea.


I think he deserves a price for this... a price on his head. Anyone call Death's Head, yes? :D

And this summing up the Roman Empire in a few words. Bravo! ;)

Yes, but you see the Romans sucked (both literally and not) and are fags. They were a bunch of boymolesters and so were the Greeks. So you're telling me you think that's somehow acceptable?

Alt-ideas? I have many ideas, but few of them are what I'd call alternative.

Dalek is not me. As evidenced by the fact that he isn't me.

See?

Or, if that's not good enough, by the fact that I no virtually bugger all about Dr Who, whilst he is an obsessive. w00t.

I vote for Batman.
