I vote for Nick22. One of the GoF's earliest users, he's been strengthening this community in all sorts of large and small ways for over 16 years. Whether it's the RP board, the singalong projects, or the general conversation sections, you can always count on Nick.

Had to give this a lot of thought. My vote goes to StardustSoldier, who is always friendly, always up for a chat and has contributed loads to the forum: his reviews, a bunch of screenshots for the award banners and a general positive presence all throughout the forum.

I'll vote for the Lone Dragon. He has been a very uplifting presence in any chat and his informative posts about marine life have been interesting. Overall, he has been a great person both to me personally and to the community overall.

Do we seriously have a five-way tie right now? :lol

Well, I guess I'll break the tie by giving my vote to StardustSoldier. As I mentioned in my vote for him for the LBT Discussion Award, I like reading his reviews of every LBT movie and TV episode. It's been quite a while since we last had anyone ambitious enough to cover that much content, so I find it nice to see someone new provide their perspective.

This was certainly a tough call to make! In the end, however, I am going to vote for jassy. It's only as of fairly recently that we've gotten to know each other better, but it's been a great pleasure all the same. She's been a very nice presence in both the Gang of Five and Legion of Ducky servers, and she has a great sense of humour. Having cool art to show off has also been a plus. :yes Lastly, she was there on multiple occasions to offer comforting and encouraging words when I was going through some very rough times earlier this year, which meant a lot to me.
See here for all the LBT films and episodes I've reviewed.

It has been a difficult decision as their are so many blokes worthy of this award however this year my vote goes to Sovereign, he has been a fun bloke on GoF and LoD servers, not to mention he still reviews stories and has helped proofread some of my work. So I will cast my vote for him this year.

Six-way tie for runner-up now, haha. :ducky

Appreciated Award for this year is very tricky, because for the most part the vast majority of people that are eligible this time are underdogs who I know on a personal basis and I think deserves recognition. I had to mull this over and narrow my choices down intensely, and after much consideration, my vote will be for jassy. I really enjoy her soft and unique art style, and as a person she has been a great energetic friend who has really helped to balance my more muted, overly intuitive, and concerned personality with a more effervescent disposition.

Would it be possible for swimmers and flyers to get more love around here? Both figuratively… and literally.

My vote goes to Sovereign. He has always been a helpful member of our community. As I mentioned in my award voting post, he is great at feedback and always willing to critique other’s work in a way that will help them get even better. He has been an appreciated contributor to discussions in the past about the deleted scenes of The Land Before Time, and we had a good talk a month and a half ago about them (back when I had contacted LBT screenwriter Stu Krieger). So he is my choice for this award.
I am a big LBT fan and have seen all movies and TV series episodes. On the forum, I was formerly known as Hypnobrai until Nov 11, 2017.

In recent years, I have gained an interest in the production of The Land Before Time, particularly the deleted scenes of the original film. New discoveries have been made in the last few years and continue to be made, so I feel that it is a good time to contribute.

I have always loved sharpteeth more than any other creatures in the franchise, especially the fourteenth film's Carnotaurus, the fifth film's Sharptooth, and especially the original Sharptooth.

I am a former administrator of the LBT wiki, having been active from 2017 to 2019.



(I'm a runner-up for the Appreciated Member 2017 award.)

Tough choice... But I would like to give my vote to StardustSoldier. For general activity, posting in various types of topics, feedbacks, reviews, and friendness!  :Tickles
Keeps writing "sharptotoh" instead of "sharptooth" since 2015.

I would like to vote for Jassy. She has contributed to the fanart section for a couple years now and is always a friendly face, either on the forum or on discord.

This was not an easy decision. I took some time to consider my options, but even then it was still difficult. In the end, though, I will have to go with StardustSoldier. He has been an uplifting presence for me lately and I wholeheartedly appreciate him. He's also very fun and engaging person to talk to. Honorable mention for my boy, Sovereign. :duckyhappy

After careful consideration, I wish to cast my vote for StardustSoldier.  In terms of constructive feedback and friendliness I have no doubt of their worthiness of this award.  :)
