Golden Eucariote 2016 - aka Nightwish Forum Awards

34 posts in this topic

So, since no one has opened this year;s round of voting, this difficult and extremely responsible task has fallen on my hairy chest. Thank god there is such thing as copy/paste from Eilenna's and Spirit's topic from last year. I would urge all of you to vote, whoever doesn't vote will get an imaginary ban from me until the end of the year. 

 

THE DEADLINE FOR VOTING IS 31st JANUARY!!!!

 

You may vote in as many or as few categories as you like, and let's keep the number of nominees per category to three, because it is not a very refined vote if you choose a whole bunch of people.

 

 
(Of course it's more fun if you try to vote in most of the categories, explain your nomination shortly)  :D
You can change and complete your votes as you like until the 31st.)
 
We'll let you know the results in the beginning of February.
 
These awards are a tradition, made in good spirit, and I hope you'll have fun!  :)
So please vote and spread the word!
Wishing you many Golden Eucariotes!

I feel, I can do this in 4 ways:

 

* the honest way - pretty boring, done that already 2 times

* the sarcastic/'funny' way

* the anonymous way with Somebody, Anybody, Everybody and Nobody or

* the annoying Muppet way

 

Not sure I can make a decision before February to be honest.

WOW, this year's response is so overwhelming! Maybe the questions need to be reconsidered a bit. I don't know. Maybe it's the beginning of the end of this forum?

I think also, you should have given the good example to post your replies first, Baki......you know the saying: when one me(n)tal sheep walks over the dam, the rest will follow. 

 

Okay, let's get it over with. I'll do the impersonal version, but everybody knows who am I talking about.

 

1. Lost in cyberspace

 

Somebody from Romania. I miss her.

Where's Somebody named Mojo gone?

 

2.  Blondest poster

 

Somebody from Colombia who didn't understand a pregnancy joke and related it instantly to blatant sexism. That is a very big NONO from me, my friend.

 

3. Least favourite mod

 

Somebody from Hungary

 

4. Favourite mod

 

Still Somebody from Finland

 

5, Most annoying member

 

Somebody from Colombia and somebody from The North

Everybody with a lightblue coloured name, only lurking, never posting. Are they band members?

 

6. Gimmick of the year

 

Could be Anybody's. Never noticed any specific.

 

7. Best username

 

Everybody's unique, but Serious Sam (he sounds like a Looney Tunes hired gunman) has the best, although he needs to lighten up a bit

 

8. Best avatar

 

Somebody who's gender and nationality is unknown, but he's a short worded cat wearing glasses. Could it be it Bee82 in disguise? I loved her feisty and brutally honest participations in the past!

 

9. The best thread

 

If there was one, I would be hooked obviously. But Somebody named Devious Mischievious posted the 'Songs you are currently addicted to'-thread in 2011. That'll do for this year.

 

10. Worst thread (in Dutch that would mean the thread of the sausages - maybe next year) 

 

Everybody, apart from Somebody from Colombia and Somebody from The North, hopefully agrees that 'Floor's Metal Test (Metal Hammer) was by far the baddest one with some of the most annoying, adolescent and irritating posts I have read in the last year.     

 

11. Best sig

 

Somebody Finnish from the USA 

 

12. Best quote

 

Somebody named Whitenoise had loads of them, but 'Moi Moi Mooi' for an impossible translation for 'Bye Bye Beautiful' was his most wonderful contribution of the year 2016!

 

13. Best alternative swearphrase

 

Somebody called hunebedbouwer better not do this. He could be in trouble with Somebody from Hungary.

 

14. Funniest poster

 

I've laughed the most about the jokes from Somebody from Helsinki (all white noised fun) and Somebody from Serbia, but I've laughed too little.

 

15. Best artist

 

Nobody. Very little action. 

 

16. Band stalker

 

Could it be Somebody from the band itself. Somebody who likes to stalk by playing bagpipes, flutes and as many instruments as possible?

 

17. Biggest spammer

 

Somebody female from Spain and Somebody from Colombia

 

18. Biggest drama queen 

 

Possibly Somebody from Colombia

 

19. Biggest music freak

 

Female Somebody from Bulgaria.

Somebody from Finland (harvesting anything from pop to heavy metal and very flirtatious with Annie and Charlie)

Possibly Somebody from Argentina who lives near a white lagoon. I'm jealous! 

 

20. Changing face

 

Nobody this year. I've got them all covered.

 

21. Most flirtatious forum member

 

I would say Somebody like Nightwish' front singer, because with her 'outrageous' comments , she certainly flirts with a lot of tabloid me(n)tal magazines

 

22. Most in-your-face-poster

 

The great cat with the black glasses who hisses and then strikes

 

23. Master debater

 

We've lost a few. This year, I would like to propose Somebody from Colombia, because he keeps debating Everybody up to a point, at which a German moderator even mentioned a withdrawal from this podium altogether. Now, that's what I call a result!

 

24. Cat vs dog

 

A Colombian cat versus a dog from up North (possibly a wolf)

 

25. Best debating pair

 

Nobody. There were only losers

 

26. Best double act

 

The best mod and the biggest music freak from Finland.

I think Somebody from the Netherlands and Somebody from the USA have given up on each other on the 'misquote the person above you'-thread. Or they have moved in together and are now producing little misquotes. I've no idea.

And I'd like to think, I do have a healthy relation with Somebody, who I nominated as the funniest Finn on this forum as well. Well, whenever he is around ofcourse.

 

27. Most intelligent poster

 

Well, well, well. Now, we've come to the crunch of it all. The real stuff. The only that matters.

 

A female Somebody from Sweden with an owl as her avatar. When she posts, it's worthwhile to read. Good common sense, knowledgeable stuff.

 

Somebody who's the biggest Finnish music freak on this forum. Excellent writings about music and other things. A joy to behold when it comes to technical issues, a master of acknowledging compressed recordings and moaning about it. Mind you, he's got the solutions as well! He's addicted to ice hockey!

 

Somebody from Spain who says he's an atheist, but has Christ in his username. In general, well written and thoughtfully wrought posts. He gets some extra cream, because he's an excellent and passionate Leonard Cohen admirer as well.  

 

Somebody from Germany who named himself after the latest Bond film. However, his posts are way better than the film.

 

Everybody writing white noises: these are intelligent and to-the-point posts, wrapped in wit. That's how I like them the most. I could learn a few things from him.

 

28. Best newcomer

 

I've got to give it to Somebody who's living the life at an Argentinian white lagoon. Good knowledge, good posts, Enthousiastic interest in a lot of things.

 

29. Best poster overall

 

Nobody. In this world of hypes, such a title would only gets to his/her head. So a safe bet is; Somebody from Romania who decided she could post no longer on this forum.

 

 

 

Best film 2016:  The Red Turtle

 

Best Book 2016: The best books I read were 'Six suspects' by Vikas Swarup and 'Catastrophe 1914: Europe goes to war' by Max Hastings

 

Best TV-show 2016: 'Baardmannetjes' - a Dutch nature series about birdwatching in the NL with two totally opposite characters. One is a optimistic bird expert and the other is a depressed, but hilarious writing and poetic genius.

 

Best live gig 2016: Mundial Festival (world music) in Tilburg. The relaxed atmosphere and the wealth of different kinds of music.

 

Best album 2016: Not surprisingly, Leonard Cohen's last release in October. He died in November. The album was surprisingly better than his last two and mightily impressive (and depressing considering his departure from earth).

There are too many questions here. If we want to keep this thread alive somebody should winnow this. The fact is that I don't know how to answer most questions. So I will just go for a few:

 

1. Lost in cyberspace

Obviously Mojo. Maybe he's not lost, but I haven't read anything from him for ages.

 

2. Best username

 

Serious Sam

 

3.-The best thread

The upcoming NW album

At least, we can see what people on this forum expects and that's cute.

 

4. Worst thread.

Those games threads I will never understand what their purpose is.

 

5.- Biggest drama queen 

 

Great Eye. Always so positive and endearing!

 

6. Biggest musik freak

Hunebedbouwer. He's active everywhere, especially in threads about all kinds of music.

 

7.-. Cat vs dog

Aahasverus versus everybody else. A classic here.

 

8. Most intelligent poster

 

Symphoniker,  Hunebedbouwer, Slayed Dreamer, Sahara, Damian, JackietheStriper, Eilenna, Spectre.

 

9.-Best album 2016: No doubt about it: Black Star by Bowie and You Want it Darker, by Cohen. Both of them (Cohen and Bowie) have released their two last albums just a few days before dying and both of them have created two masterpieces. What can I say? I just love them.

 

And for the rest of the questions I have no idea what to answer.

I hereby nominate Christermo to organise next year's forum Q & A show, and come up with a clear, sensible and appealing award winning (talking Oscars here) happening!! :music: 

 

 

A little help from a friend:

 

What was the best post of the last year (thread and post number, please)?

Which musical piece was the best you discovered through this forum?

What do you eat most of the time while listening to NW? :P :P

Your favourite NW band member this year and why?

 

 

Combine the Best and MOST INTELLIGENT question.

Ditch the ALTERNATIVE SWEARPHRASE and MOST FLIRTATIOUS questions! Invent some others.

 

Along with best book, film etc., you could add: best meal and best holiday of the year.  Just saying.

@ hunebedbower

 

All your suggestions sound very sane, and I'm all for it from the next year on, since it doesn't really make sense to edit the rules now in the middle of the voting. Apparently this year no one was interested in this sort of stuff, so it's probably gonna be a flop, but whatever, so were quite a few songs by Nightwish, and still we all love them. :diablo:

Hereby my answers (sorry for such a delay, but had tons of work, still do, but whatever):

 

Lost in Cyberspace:

angelheart – it seems improbable I will ever get to have a coffee with her, the least she can do is be present on the forum

Spirit of Whiterun

 

Blondest Poster:

Floor Jansen (not really a poster, but still, she did manage to troll all of us with Slayer thing)

 

(Least) Favourite Mod/Admin:

I love all of them to the point of staying on this forum for the last 14 years (damn, I’m ancient)

 

Gimmick of the Year:

All those technical complaints and discussions about compressions, framerates, decibels etc. Makes me feel so stupid.

 

 

Best Avatar:

some_dude

 

Best thread:

Floor’s Slayer interview, Politics & Human rights

 

Worst thread:

Whole Forum Fun section,

 

Best Quote:

Too tired to search for it now, but was it some_dude who said “So, Troy is the new Marcelo?”

 

Best alternative swearphrase:

Enough with the ban on swearing! Tuomas can swear in his songs, I cannot swear on a frigging forum!

 

Funniest Poster:

some_dude – wanna have a beer with him/her

 

Band Stalker:

As Spirit is for whatever reason gone, Afrodite

 

Biggest Spammer:

Serena

 

Biggest Drama Queen:

Ahasverus

 

Biggest Music Freak:

hunebedbower – hats down

 

Changing Face:

hunebedbower – for the better

Magnus – has been rather absent this year

 

Most Flirtatious Forum Member:

If only….

 

Most 'in your face' poster:

Ahasverus, Cristermo, Serious Sam

 

Master Debater

Ahasverus, some_dude

 

Cat Vs Dog:

Ahasverus vs. pretty much the rest of the forum

 

Best Debate Pair:

Ahasverus & some_dude

 

Most Intelligent Poster:

Serious Sam, Ahasverus, Magnus

 

Best Newcomer:

WhiteLagoon – you are a newcomer, right?

Ahasverus was there before, what about some_dude? if yes, then the latter.

 

Best poster:

Ahasverus, some_dude, hunebedbower – keep it up, guys/girls/persons!

 

The Community awards:

My love life in 2016. Never been better. No book, no song, no film could match it!

Your favourite NW band member this year and why?

Unless you're referring to the former singers (who are my two favorite anyway XD) or to past works this year they won't be too active so we aren't gonna hear so much from them for deciding who is our favorite. But your ideas overall are really nice! :D

And yes, Baki, I joined on August 29th 2016.

Least Favourite Mod/Admin:
Dandelion
She uses wrong colour in her posts.

 

Favourite Mod/Admin:
Serena
She isn't just a mod but Moderador.

 

Gimmick of the Year:
"Funny" animated GIFs and Internet memes that the mods used to remove before.
 

Best Avatar:
Baki
 

Best thread:
Off Topic section
It's much easier for me to stay off topic than on topic.

 

Worst thread:
Vehicle of Spirit (and its predecessor)
I'm not against the topic itself, but the amount of nonsense made it rather comical.

Best Sig:
Baki's modest-sized sig which holds an interesting story.

Best Quote:
Hunebedbouwer taught a Dutch way to end a forum post:
"Ik moet naar de WC."

Best alternative swearphrase:
The most popular swearphrase is "Welcome to Finland" (WTF) which is converted into acceptable "Welcome to Helsinki" by the mods. In my opinion, WTH is a naughtier phrase than WTF.

Funniest Poster:
hunebedbouwer
Self explanatory, really

According to Whitenoise, I'm the freakiest freak of all freakers for which I'm ever grateful to my parents.

It's not easy to thank him for all his nominations, so I'll just post this:

 

 

 

 

In other words: LE FREAK C'EST CHIQUE !!!

I am gonna count the votes during the weekend, too busy right now, so if anyone wants to cast their vote in the meantime, please do. If not, yours is an empty hope.

Lost in Cyberspace:

mojo

 

Least Favourite Mod/Admin:

Dandelion

She uses wrong colour in her posts.

 

Favourite Mod/Admin:

Serena

She isn't just a mod but Moderador.

 

Gimmick of the Year:

"Funny" animated GIFs and Internet memes that the mods used to remove before.

 

Best Avatar:

Baki

 

Best thread:

Off Topic section

It's much easier for me to stay off topic than on topic.

 

Worst thread:

Vehicle of Spirit (and its predecessor)

I'm not against the topic itself, but the amount of nonsense made it rather comical.

 

Best Sig:

Baki's modest-sized sig which holds an interesting story.

 

Best Quote:

Hunebedbouwer taught a Dutch way to end a forum post:

"Ik moet naar de WC."

 

Best alternative swearphrase:

The most popular swearphrase is "Welcome to Finland" (WTF) which is converted into acceptable "Welcome to Helsinki" by the mods. In my opinion, WTH is a naughtier phrase than WTF.

 

Funniest Poster:

hunebedbouwer

Self explanatory, really

 

Best Artist:

geoman

 

Band Stalker:

CenturyChild625

 

Biggest Spammer:

some_dude

570 posts since mid-April tells a lot.

 

Biggest Drama Queen:

Ahasverus

 

Biggest Music Freak:

hunebedbouwer

He is also the biggest sport freak, movie freak, language freak, culture freak, history freak, Netherlands freak, other-world-except-the-United-States-and-Wallonia freak, sauna freak, food freak, and liquorice freak, to name a few.

 

Most Flirtatious Forum Member:

suomi usa

She called me her Captain. It might have happened this year but I vote for her anyway.

 

Most 'in your face' poster:

I hereby nominate Christermo to organise next year's forum Q & A show, and come up with a clear, sensible and appealing award winning (talking Oscars here) happening!! :music:

 

 

A little help from a friend:

 

What was the best post of the last year (thread and post number, please)?

Which musical piece was the best you discovered through this forum?

What do you eat most of the time while listening to NW? :P :P

Your favourite NW band member this year and why?

 

 

Combine the Best and MOST INTELLIGENT question.

Ditch the ALTERNATIVE SWEARPHRASE and MOST FLIRTATIOUS questions! Invent some others.

 

Along with best book, film etc., you could add: best meal and best holiday of the year.  Just saying.

It would be an honour, but I don't think I deserve it. Anyway, I wouldn't mind doing it, I really think there are too many questions and some of them difficult to answer.

@Serena

 

Why not moderate some more and post your own nominations?

 

 

It's a bit disappointing that a lot of the biggest spammers don't dare to spam some more here! 

 

 

 

 

@Christermo

 

Ofcourse you deserve it! Always wondered why you didn't do one on the Spanish side! :P 

I wouldn't mind helping out a bit and we've got all year to come up with a flashy, innovative and a much clearer ( :whistle:) nomination Q & A!!!

Between us, we could also include all kinds of difficult Cohen questions! :) That'll teach them.

Mail me for assistance around december 2017 for some proper collaboration if you want. Ofcourse we have to ask all of the former organizers, plus all of the mods and administrators, plus all band members plus all forum members for their permission first! :popcorn:

Deal is done! We must do something to revitalise this thread, it's clearly fading away and it's a shame. Obviously, Mr Cohen must be present in a way or another, we'll find the way... We don't need any permission :horns:

@Christermo

 

You know what the problem of today's people is? They won't participate only for honour anymore. They wanna win something and at least a few million. The day that winners were going berserk for winning a fridge are long gone. I don't know about about you, but my cash-flow in January 2018 will most likely be quite weak. Maybe I've got a few chocolate coins spare.

 

Maybe that our new winners could win a ban for three months or so. Or give a them a title like Lord Spammer, Dame Gimmick or Sir Stalker, to be used a whole year long. And members with more than 500 posts are by Nightwish Law art. 1, section A, obliged to participate. Or else! :dwarf: :dwarf:  :dwarf:

 

See you in December!
