First, a note to the mods. I knew last year you wanted to move this to the off-topic zone or the members zone. I was wondering (hoping) that if we did it all in once thread, we could keep it in here this year. If not, to gather enough interest, could we have this pinned for a few days? Thanks!
Hey guys! After a nice showing last year, I'm hoping we can get even more poeple involved for year 2 of the Cowboyszone Board Awards!
I'd like to thank DallasEast for making last year extremely successful, it really couldn't have happened without you. First off, let's remind everyone of the winners from last year!!
Now, let's remind everyone of the rules!
I will soon post an awards list, get a general idea (*in your head, DON'T POST IT YET) of 3 people from the board whom you wish to nominate. The 3 "Zoners" with the most nominations (after 3 full days) will then enter a 3-day voting period, where a winner will be announced. Winners can flex their internet muscles, and grow their virtua-peens, by sticking the award in their signature until next summer, where we'll do it over again.
The Rules are as follows:
1. You can't nominate yourself...duh.
2. You may nominate up to 3 people in each category.
3. Each voting and nomination thread lasts 3 days.
4. There is no rule 4.
5. Remember to keep it as drama free as possible. If you have a beef, PM me.
Now, the awards!

If there's any mod that would like to help me out and sticky this, it would be awesome.
We'll leave this open for discussion, smack talk, and whatnot until next week. If anyone has any ideas about a NEW board award, put em up. I'd like to add 3 more awards this year.
DallasEast, if you're game for being the co-manager or whatever of the awards again this year, send me a PM and I'd love your help. Anyone else who would be on board for helping this thing run, send me a PM as well.
Good luck to past winners on defending your crown, and good luck to everyone else on stealing the crown away from them!
