Congarats matthew! I hope that convinces you to stay (and see that we value you) even though the letter games have been locked.
I'm also kinda glad that, although I would've liked being nominated in one or two other categories (who wouldn't), I've won two and not more awards, so my profile signature still looks decent.
And yes, big congratulations to Anka for organizing this memorable Darkies ceremony!
Smile now, cry later.
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: If anyone has a banner of mine that's missing due to TinyPic shutting down, you can get it back from my Arts+Crafts thread, here, where I've re-uploaded all of them to a new server.
plenty of great nominees and winners this year, sure, but who reaaally wanted that darkie? sophie's award begs that crucial question. the members 667 thought were most desperate for a darkie are:
i can now safely say that our winner has won a darkie this year! (much to their delight, i expect). sorry, tryina, teleram and spoonerism. so who do we have left?
first of all, me. sure, it was sophie who wanted this award so badly, but why did i get out of my way to help her and organized this whole thing? was i expecting some sort of recognition in return? was i simply trying to mix things up? who knows? (me)
and then we have sophie. who fought so hard for this. she was outraged that her suggestion didn't make it to the polls, but why?? why does she need this that bad?? why did she suggest we vote for unusual people this year's darkies?
and then we have bandit and charlie. both who say they'd fight for their spot as most desperate for a darkie. charlie seems pretty believable, since most of the time he's oddly and endearingly juvenile. what about bandit? does he really want this or was all that just his weird humor no one really finds funny??

Germes: I think inviting new people to join us is a good idea.

Germes: I think Bee did something similar at some point in the past.

Germes: And even earlier, there was a plan to stick 667 flyers in copies of ASOUE in bookshops. At least one person did join us because of that.

Sherry Ann: Didn't someone get kicked out of / asked to leave a bookstore for putting 667 bookmarks in ASOUE books?

Jean Lúcio: If there was a flow capacitor, I would sign up here long before ... That must have been incredible.

Terry Craig: holy salsa, tk, you legend. I've never heard of the flyers thing as part of 667 history.

Stay-at-homet: Just updated my profile to express my hopes that everyone stays home and safe. I tried to give my avatar a mask, but it ended up looking more like Patrick from Spongebob in overalls.

Jean Lúcio: It was great for me. I also put a mask on my Avatar.
