1st Semiannual MGoAwards Presentation
After countless hours of work (ok, roughly 2-3) and hundreds of votes (or maybe closer to 15-20), it’s now time to present the first annual MGoAwards!
These awards are voted on by you the MGoUser. Votes are the total of the online poll votes, plus the original e-mailed in votes. I realize that some votes may have counted twice (poll and e-mail), but that’s the benefit you get from following directions the first time.
For a refresher on the nominees, go here.
Before we begin, I’d like to ask that the recipients limit their acceptance speeches to 2 minutes, and no Kanye-type interruptions please(unless it's funny).

Congratulations to all the winners! I hereby present you…nothing really, except our respect (in most cases). May your username live on for eternity.
As of now, the plan is to do this again near the beginning of next season (the offseason awards). Hopefully I'll be better at this and it'll go more smoothly.
Yeah he did.
I would like to thank the user for laughing.... Thanks for taking a chance on a new member who wears blades on his shoulders and who hunts Ninja Turtles.
It all started on a September day when the board was infatuated with the giant jumbo HD screens at stadiums. I figured why not draw the big house of the future. 2025 to be exact. I knew I would either be neg into outer space or made a champion of the MS Paint people. Well.. Many art pieces later and being linked to many great sites from NY magazine to ESPN I am the peoples MS Paint champ.
I would like to thank all of MGOBLOG and it's users. I hope y....(chunkums jumps on stage and steals the mic)
See what I did there?
I am raising a championship banner to my rafters as we speak.
Looks like I might need to photoshop my insectosaurus so that he's on fire or something to compete with you. Congrats.
I'm so proud to have been a part of the genesis of the math thread. I was worried when we went way off on a tangent, but it has come full circle in the presentation of this award.
I'd use this opportunity to talk about Global Warming, but that's my day job.
you really don't hate me!
Thanks for putting this together. I know it was somewhat time-consuming and not many people voted (including me), but I enjoyed reading the posts again.
Alvy Singer: "What's with all these awards?
They're always giving out awards.
Best Fascist Dictator: Adolf Hitler."
Just kidding, I really got a kick out of reading the posts being linked.
Did the ability to post .gif avatars get removed?
