  1. We have Olympics events, we have mob arenas, we have a currency, we have an official EMC "let's play" so why can't we have an EMC Award Ceremony?

    To put it really simply, it would be an award show to determine who has had to greatest success in one category, of course, on EMC.

    So for example, some categories would be "best shop" ; "most significant/impacting EMC update" ; "best EMC event" ; "EMC overall most dedicated player" ; "EMC supporter of the year" ; "EMC non-supporter of the year" and then probably a lot more with a few goofy categories such as "oldest EMC meme/joke of the year."

    It would work like this. Either in game or on the forums, I would find the system that works best for voting (probably a google document) and then announce the winners of each category either in game or on the forums. Nominating could come from selected players or staff, if they're interested.

    The event would be planned carefully to avoid offending anyone, if that's a concern for some people. Personally my one and only problem is it possibly just turning into a popularity contest, so what do you think?

    To be honest, I'm not a massive fan of un-official/non staff-supported in-game events as 1) 0 people could show up, or 100 people could and 2) they're pretty hard to control - which is why I say in-game/on the forums.

    Yes, it says 2013 but basically it's 2012-2013.

    Yay or nay? Any questions? Feel free to suggesting anything. I think that it could be a lot of fun. :)

  5. I think it's a pretty interesting idea. Define the categories a bit more though, for sure. For example, "best shop" should probably be narrowed down to:
    Best Shop Layout
    Best Shop Decoration
    Best Shop Organization

    Of course, don't get too crazy or this event will be too large to manage. Get SMOOCH involved, he can help you a lot.
  6. That'd be nice, I have so many ideas for categories, I'll post them a bit later on. I don't want too many, but 3 sub-categories for just some big ones sounds good. Or/and independent server awards for some, instead of EMC as a whole.

    That'd be great, I hope that he could give suggestions with the experience from the things that he's organised.

    Of course, I'll make a much more detailed thread later on if this is a go ahead, but feel free to post any suggestions here.

  17. What do you guys think about having 1 major winner for most categories and then having 2-3 sub-categories that people can win for all things except the SMP1-9 awards
