    what you can get rid of:
    3. The prince
    4. The princess
    7. Sexiest female member
    8. Sexiest male member
    9. The wink wink nudge nudge award
    10. Most likely to rule the world
    11. Most likely to become famous
    12. Most likely to ramble
    14. Strangest first impression
    24. Most Likely To Incur A Squirrel Invasion (no contest, it's Storm).

    I feel that '2. The Cyberpunk of RPA' could be expanded upon with other awards for different genres, like steampunk, fantasy, and more.

    or maybe the one that finally brings you to your knees and makes you realize what kind of person you are.

    Definitely think best arena battle and character should be included this year, as the Purgament is probably the most significant event of 2020.

    MY recommendation is to just open ALL awards for nomination.

    Then remove all awards that do not receive at least one nomination. It's the easiest way to eliminate the unnecessary awards.

    Cyberpunk is a veteran award. The opposite of "best newest member" (aka best member that been around the longest).

    I do like your idea, but I think it will be hard to decide members by genre.

    We do have different awards to rps based on genre.

    I think it’s important to keep some of the strange / silly awards lest we all start taking ourselves too seriously, but I think Dna’s idea to trim awards that don’t get more than one or two nominations could be useful if you want to thin the crowd.

    I think trimming the ones that get no nominations out a great idea.
    But the ones I listed, I did for my own reasons.
    1. I probably don't understand the significance of some of them. Like the 'The wink wink nudge nudge award' I don't get the importance of.
    2. Some I really feel we could get rid of based on name alone. Like at least the 2 sexiest ones. I just don't feel they are needed.

    24. Most Likely To Incur A Squirrel Invasion. That I feel is just not needed, because we already know it would go to.

    With a few I have listed, if you don't feel I understand, or others might not, then just change the name or something.

    Honestly, keeping some of the informal nominations really would add spice to every year's awards. The "wink, wink, nudge nudge" one has been around since I can personally remember. That said, I wouldn't mind having a less serious title. At least it means that others here remember me! That said, I really do think the Member Category should be cut down to size just a bit. (25 to 30 award categories still feels like a healthy number.)

    As for RP awards, I feel we can easily split them into RP's and Character Awards. That'll make decisions on what stays and goes far more easy on us. The below is my take on member awards. I've not crossed out too many (about 7 or 8), since I feel there's a cultural element for most of them. Still, there are some that just overlap too much.

    1. Best new member
    2. The Cyberpunk of RPA
    3. The prince
    4. The princess
    5. Most artistic
    6. Best sense of humour (I don't see the need for humor in this community, but I'll tolerate it.)
    7. Sexiest female member (I remind judges of Rule #4: There are no women on the Internet.)
    8. Sexiest male member
    9. The wink wink nudge nudge award
    10. Most likely to rule the world
    11. Most likely to become famous
    12. Most likely to ramble
    13. Kindest member
    14. Strangest first impression
    15. The perfectionist
    16. Shackled to rpa
    17. Pocket full of sunshine (Basically the same as the nicest/kindest)
    18. The chameleon (Almost the same as sticking a medal on someone's grave)
    19. Most likely to change their username
    20. Best blogger
    21. Meme King
    22. The Mime (*gesticulates wildly*)
    23. Most Frequent Thread Starter
    24. Most Likely To Incur A Squirrel Invasion (Not sure what this means at all. Off with its head!)
    25. Nerdiest Member
    26. The most likely to survive an apocalypse
    27. Heart of downtown
    28. Best Username (Sure, cool usernames are cool, but do we need this?)
    29. Best Signature
    30. Most Random
    31. Best Creative Writing Thread
    32. Best Original Drawing
    33. Most likely to Triple Post
    34. Most Sarcastic
    35. Most likely to burst into song
    36. Most likely to become a superhero (Becoming famous is much like this.)
    37. Most Likely to become a Supervillain (No need to encourage folks like me.)




    I'm gonna jump on @Azazeal849's bandwagon: if we get too few nominations, ditch the award. Having lots of people compete over a silly category is a far cry better than dealing with a bunch of single-nomination awards that we could do without. And we just repeat the process year to year.

    I know this is a joke but it actually makes me think of a semi-related point: I know that there are non-binary members on this forum (and others who “prefer not to say”) - why not have a single Sexiest Member award instead of Sexiest Male and Sexiest Female? Just an idea.
