Title: [Melb] BAM2011: Community Award Program - Make Suggestions Here
Post by: Loki on August 11, 2011, 08:16:26 AM
Hi guys!

So we've decided to do something a little bit different this year that we hope everyone will like.  8)

Since the focus of BAM is on the local Australian scene and we want to help to highlight our players and their individual traits we're going to implement a lot more community voted awards, both for performance at BAM as well as general play over the last year. These awards could be things like Most Improved Player, Most Flashy, Biggest Fimbler, Shenanigans (Gimmicks, comebacks etc...), or even out of game contributions to the community, like the awards EVO has been presenting to people like Seth Killian and Markman for the last couple of years.

What we want to know from you guys is what kind of awards would you like to see implemented? We'll be taking suggestions leading up to the event and then we'll take some of the best ideas to be voted on by you guys on the day.
The winners would received a medal and the recognition of the community and may receive prizes too once we've evaluated our prize pool for the year.

All you need to do for now is give us some ideas, and then on the day we'll have voting forms you can fill out which will also give you the chance to win prizes. Everybody wins! :D

So get to suggesting! What kind of awesomeness should we recognize this year?  :p:

Maybe vote is the wrong word, I'm actually wanting more to get suggestions at this point. People will vote for players in the subset we choose on the day.

Just brainstorming here:
This is probably a good opportunity to reflect on the specific qualities the awards could celebrate and promote in the community. Such as:
Along with the good humoured kinds of awards we've got going here already!

Hey guys, just wanted to let you all know that we've decided on which Community Awards will be given away at BAM and all of your suggestions were really helpful in whittling it down to those we think everyone will enjoy the most.

There'll be a big announcement with the categories in the next few days so stay tuned!
