2019 Tiebreaker
« on: October 01, 2019, 12:34:29 AM »
Hi guys, once again this year  we have a tie for one of the awards. this year, we had a tie for Friendly Member runnerup, betwen Mumbling and StardustSoldier , who both got 4 votes.
 To Break the tie, we will have a second round of voting starting on Wednesday 10-2 at midnight  and running for a week until Midnight on 10-10.  Voters are to pick between the candidates, although the candidates themselves are not permitted to vote in the category for which they are nominated.  IF there is still a tie after the tiebreaker period ends, then the admins will vote to break the tie. The winner of the vote will get  the runner-up banner. A second post below will hold a running tally of the voters cast and where we stand so far in the voting.  I will add votes as they come in.
Winner of these:

I'd like to thank everyone for their votes for me on proactive and friendly member. It's quite flattering to be in the tiebreaker. However, I really hope Stardust wins this tie-breaker as I really thinks he deserves it :yes

Happy voting!

I share your sentiments that StardustSoldier should be the runner-up for the Friendly Member Award. I’ll be cheering him on the most of course, as I’m very passionate for his award win to happen. Also, I’d like to thank you Mumbling for voting me on the Proactive Award. I appreciate it, considering that it was the only vote I got out of anything, not that I’m disappointed or anything. After all, I’ve only been here for roughly 5 months.

Good luck on the tie-breaker vote, @StardustSoldier and @Mumbling! :celebrate

I don’t know, probably since the transition of this forum, or maybe the old forum had it too? Some admin or mod can explain it to you.

Also, my vote for StardustSoldier was kinda implied in the first post I made Nick22, but then I realize that I posted one day before the actual voting began. Oops-Eeps! :oops

I suppose I'll throw my vote in for Stardust as well. Stardust is incredibly active since he joined early this year and has interacted with me multiple times in the Ask Me section (the sub-forum I feel I run into him the most), and his forums posts are always of an amiable nature. :)
This quaint creature who soars when the Night Circle is highest in the dark sky, unfortunately messing up his circadian rhythm in the process. Truly, a tragic flyer. :P

Expectations may become a reality, StardustSoldier! As the votes are unanimous as of far, I don't see the outcome of the vote changing much at all. :)

Stardust is clearly one of the most friendly members of the forum and has always been willing to make new members feel welcome and at home. Though I initially cast my vote for Mumbling in the main vote, I agree with her reasoning here and wholeheartedly cast my vote for StardustSoldier!  :)littlefoot

My vote goes to Stardust as well! I haven’t talked to him very often, but from what i’ve seen, he has a friendly and positive attitude which is part of what makes this forum so great :DD
I love the rainbow faces from the bottom of my heart!

While Mumbling has been an extremely kind presence on both the forum and Discord, I'll join the pack and vote for StardustSoldier He has been a positive voice in the community as a whole and I really appreciate his questions on the Ask Me section even if I've been much slower in answering him. Overall, he has been a really welcome addition to GoF and I don't hesitate to vote for him.

well guys this is going to be one of the most one-sided tiebreakers in Awards history. Stardust will only be the second poster ever to receive 10 votes in a tiebreaker vote- Kacie got 15 in 2009, when we had a lot more members voting.

I'm Voting For Stardust, for similar reasons as everyone else. hes doing a bangup job.
