    Hullo everyone, it's almost the end of the year and you know what that means! MSO Awards time with your favourite host Sherlock!! :cool: :cool:

    With some interviews and place offers to be released over the next couple of weeks, all the very best to those waiting to hear good news!! Congratulations to those who've already managed to secure a place into a desired course for 2019!

    2018 has been an incredible year with many ups and downs and in the space of just one year, so much has happened, yet it feels like the blink of an eye. Active new MSO staff members, yet another new PM in Australia, UMAT no more, kiwiology finally became inactive and most importantly, even Stuart became an administrator! :eek:

    Jokes aside, as usual, this year MSO has had greater success than ever before as a forum with increasing active members and more data collection for future MSOers. There have been some incredible contributions from our forum members to make this place into what it is and it's time to recognise these contributions and reward them for their hard work and dedication.

    So, without any further ado, please post your nominations in this thread for the following categories:
    • Post of the year (please provide a quote or link to the post in question):
    • Article of the year (please provide a quote or link to the post in question):
    • Most helpful member:
    • Wisest member:
    • Silliest member:
    • Most active member:
    • Most active lurker:
    • Staff member of the year:
    • Newbie of the year (newbie = someone who made their account in the 2017 calendar year):
    • Hatboxer of the year:
    We've also added following new categories this year:

    • Music chat award - Who’s music did you vibe with most?
    • Most memorable moment of the year - a moment on MSO that has stuck with you.
    • Nicest member of the year - member who has been nice and considerate throughout the year, whether that may be on hatbox, on forums and/or profile posts.
    • MSOer of the year - member who has been an 'allrounder', who has gone above and beyond in forums, hatbox, profile posts etc.
    Please note that these categories pertain to the member's contributions in the 2018 calendar year.

    Nominations will close at midnight on new year's eve, so get nominating!


    Thanks to MSO admin Mana, winners of each category will be awarded one MSO mug and one MSO pen, shipped to you free of charge. Additionally, 2018 award winners will also be given a custom user title for one full year!

    Just for the fun of it, we're also requesting this year's award recipients to make a short speech (written) on the awards thread once the winners have been declared.​

    Cheers,
    Yours truly
