Welcome to the voting period for the 22nd annual Awards!

Through these awards, we recognize just a few of the individuals who have made outstanding contributions to in the past year.

You submitted your nominations and, from those, we have our Awards 2023 nominees. In all, 8 different members have been nominated in the various categories that make up this year's awards. They are bushido_man96, Wastelander, sensei8, aurik, DarthPenguin, KarateKen*, Zaine, and DWx. Congratulations to all of you! An asterisk (*) denotes a first-time nominee!

But that number and any other numbers shared in this post are not yet complete because we had two categories (Member of the Year and Funniest Member of the Year) this year where the nominations were unanimous, which means that we already know who the winners are. In order to keep that secret until we announce our winners, I am excluding those two categories from the data here.

bushido_man96 was nominated in 4 categories, the most of any member, followed by sensei8 with 3. Our historical award numbers have been updated and new milestones have been reached!

Congratulations to bushido_man96 on being the first member to reach 60 nominations (now with 62, 1st all-time), sensei8 on hitting 50 (2nd all-time), and Wastelander on collecting 20 (6th all-time)!

With the ballots crafted, it is now time to vote.
