Unlike the Emmies this sounds like something I actually find myself interested in and motivated to watch closely.

Do I have to wear pants and for how long do we have to listen to Strolen talk?

Edit: Also wanted to add that I am looking forward to The Muro Awards and think this could be a lot of fun.

I want to see Pieh in a cocktail dress.

How come the 27th is taking so long to get here? I already ordered a limo and sent my t-shirt to the dry cleaners.

Hi val, I'm Muro, are you familiar with what I do?  :D. You'll get caustic and bombastic and other adjectives ending with -ic. No worries.

Pants are optional. Ties a must.

Regarding your speech, Strolen, you are obvioulsy anticipating receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award. (You know the one that goes to some old fogie that the Academy forgets about for 20 years then goes, "Oh hey! This guy is still alive! Lets give him some award").

I wonder who leaked it. Heads will roll! (But yes, prepare for small speech)  :wink:

I'm sure Pieh would look ravishing, but then the pressure would be on! If Pieh doesn't win an award for something, his evening will boil down to sitting around in a fancy black little cocktail dress and clapping. The morning talk-shows will have a field day at his expense!  :P

-------------------------------------

So yeah, I want to try this, and now have lots of work to do. Basically, I have to review 2010 in subs, forums, upgrades, newbies, oldies, etc...

Maybe once we have the nominees, the "Academy" (Strolen members) can vote in polls on each award. Just a thought.

HA.

And, yes, there should probably be about 456 different categories to win in so nobody gets left out.  I will work on which member spammed the most before getting deleted. This is all very exciting.

Can we export it to Murometz.com as an added banner for posterity? :D Somewhere right between the harmonica-playing squirrel and the two-legged horse?

I love it. No really, this is one cool-looking banner!

Awesome banner!

As for the little black dress situation: I don't typically wear anything that can be described as little, but if you can find a BIG black cocktail dress, or a tarp, I would gladly wear one of those, if not... It's shirt, tie, boxers.

Yeah....  I definitely found that one day on accident, and made a note to myself never to return, there are just some things mortal minds aren't designed to deal with. :p
They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

The Categories are out for public consumption (and ridicule!)

This is an incomplete list, brought to you after years and years and years of research by yours truly and Strolen.

There will be a few more categories added before the big awards banquet on the 27th.

As you may notice, some of the Categories will be strictly for 2010, and some will be overall ones. Some will be determined purely objectively, based on Magic Scripts (Strolen tm), while others will be determined subjectively (its a secret how), and some will be decided by YOUR votes!

Interactive:
1. Guess a winner of any category, attain glory and win some XP! You'll know if you guessed right on the 27th. (Strolen-Approved)
2. Suggest a category (but not a winner), attain glory and win some XP! (Strolen-Approved)

I now present the almost-completed list of categories (leaving out my snarky running commentary for now):

 

The Missing-In-Action-Swallowed-by-Cthulhu Award

The Newbie-of-the-Year Award

Sub-of-the-Year Award

Quest Finalists and Quest Winners Award

Sub-Category: Most Quest Subs overall (2010) Award

The Comeback Strolenite of the Year Award

Best New Site Feature 2010 Award

Longest, most genuine, and most well thought out comment that was so long it was removed and sent as a PM instead Award

Most Freetext used in a Sub Award

Best Use of Art in a Submission Award

Best Use of Music in a Submission Award

Most Subs used in a Freetext Award. Goes to no one (Just seeing if everyone is still paying attention)

Most Submissioner of Submissions Award

Most Commentiest of Commentators Award

Sub Title of the Year Award

Most Upvoted Comment Award

Most Time Spent Online Without Being Online Award (Can you solve the mystery?)

The Best MoonHunter Tips Year Award: 2004? 2005? 2006? 2007? (poll vote)

Most Flamed Post Award

Most XP on a single sub Award

Longest Comment to Shortest Thread Award (Yes, there is one of these too)

Best Use of an Animal in a Sub Award

Sub-Category: Best Use of a Flying Animal in a Sub Award

Best Dark Elf Assassin Submission Award

Most 5’s, HoH’s, and Goldens Dispensed Award

Lifetime Achievement Award

Acheivement Award(s)

My guesses:

Sub-Category: Most Quest Subs overall (2010) Award  will go to . . .  Cheka Man
The Comeback Strolenite of the Year Award   will go to . . .  Silveressa

Mind, I was only around for the latter half of the year, so I'll be a bit biased towards posts from about September on.  But . . .

Sub-of-the-Year Award   will go to . . . Unthar, the Sun of the Dead (by EchoMirage)

P.S. If I'm not supposed to post guesses on this thread, I'll be happy to scrub them and put them up elsewhere.
