I was thinking that we should jump on the awards bandwagon and create some enduring annual awards for EpicSki, complete with a statuette (which we would call ???), given in categories uniquely meaningful to us.
Here are some nominees for awards and qualifications (all quantifiable through stats) off the top of my head--please feel free to add your own:
Epic Thread Starter Award
To the member whose OPs start the longest threads over the past year, cumulatively, meaning we're not talking about starting one major thread but starting the most longest threads. That's because we want to have a special award in the category for
The Longest Thread Award
To the member whose OP starts the longest thread of the year.
Most Loquacious Responder Award
To the member who racks up the most replies to threads.
Trippiest EpicSkier of the Year
To the member who starts the most TR threads.
Teacher of the Year
To the member who starts the most threads in the Coaching & Instruction forum.
Student of the Year
To the member who racks up the most replies to threads in C&I.
Critic of the Year
To the member who contributes the most reviews to the Gear Review Forum.
So, do you like this idea?
Do you have any ideas for the statuette? Should we do plaques? Certificates? How gaudy should we get?
What should we call it?
