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.

Yaya's still ineligible.
You've still not included Batman.

Why am I not surprised that this is farcical?
Grrr. Argh.

We don't need to. It's Batman. He's already figured out at least 7 ways to win.
Only 2 of which would avoid causing everyone else's net connections to die.

Or we could just cut out all the attempted entertainment value and go straight to the cage match between scrap and dalek?

Since Batman is both EmmVee and Brendocon, the boy wonder, we wont be adding them to the list of nominees. :o However, I think BF may have a thing with the creators there, it's a bit unfair. I'm going to leave the decision on that, to him.

BF, should I remove them, and we just go for the regular Joes?

PS: What's this thing with Yaya not being legible? :???:

Does this mean Mr. F is eligible? 'cause I know who'll get my vote if he is.

...and I'm not Batman. I'll leave it at that.

Why is Batman not eligible? He's a new account that has proved vastly more entertaining, informative and knightly than some of the others that have appeared on this and previous ballots.
The previous newbie ballots -and winners- have included accounts that are banned, dead, lapsed, trolled or have sod-all posts, yet a member in good standing is prevented from getting onto the ballot by the corrupt forces of bureaucracy!

Batman has contributed more to this community of intarwub fictionsuits, and to that of Gotham City, than some people I could mention ever will, regardless of how many times they cock-up organising supposedly humourous polls so get it sorted.

What is this Outpost Gallifrey of which you speak? Does it have anything to do with that medical show that went out on Christmas day? :p

Thank you for the list of nominees. :) They will be added shortly. However, it has always been the policy of this contest, not to include alt-id's. And also, I have heard that this Batman, is nothing but an urban myth. ;) No proof has been presented yet, that some dark-clad avenger stalks the streets of Transfans at night.

EDIT: Well folks, we've officially ventured into double-poll land, or manual poll land, aka me runin' round with a block and pen taking names, since we've gone past the 10 points that a poll can have max. :eek:

And I still don't get the Yaya-thing? :???: Why is she illegal?

See? This is where you're an idiot. Remember that you very recently thought I was inflatable dalek? You were wrong there and you're wrong here.

You'd be good on Mastermind.

Name? Predabot.
Specialist subject? Getting things wrong.

You'd get the highest score ever, I'm sure.

The suggestion that I'm Batman is absolutely ridiculous. In fact I'd go so far as to say the only thing more preposterous would be to accuse Emvee of being Unique Ron. And we all know how stupid that sounds.

PS: What's this thing with Yaya not being legible? :???:


The thing about him not being a newbie? He's far less entitled to be included in the voting than Batman is. I bet Batman could tell you why. Batman probably worked it out before Yaya even registered. Batman's my hero.
Grrr. Argh.

It says that Yaya joined the 6th of February 2005? And since this is the 2005 awards...

Or do you mean that Yaya is a new account for someone else? Who forgot their old account?

Trough the use of my cosmic-born senses, I have been able to intercept the following conversation. :o

Now, since I, just like that frisky, young Tim Drake have deduced your identity, can I be the new boy-wonder...? :o

Look, I 've already made this costume..

Yaya should probably keep his head down on this one given that a presence of his sort is somewhat unprecidented and similar activities by other parties may not be ideal.

Just nod pred.

...you forgot Batman.

Being the boy blunder suits you. You know you secretly want to include your master, the dark knight detective. Who could win anyway even if left out of the poll. Because he's Batman.

It is because I have such belief in him that I don't include him with the rest of the rabble.

Even tho I could, in theory, since it would appear as if Besters has increased the amount of allowed options in a poll! :D Thereby eliminating last years problem with several polls.
