    Default URPG Awards 2017!


    * Depiction of monetary prizes may be inaccurate

    2017 has been a year of highs and lows for this community. As we continue into the future we are given this opportunity to look back on the year. Reflect on those with strength and virtue who held us together through the hard times, but also to celebrate our favourite moments and those of us who brought warmth and happiness.

    For the first time we will also be accepting votes via a Google Form! If you'd like your votes to remain private, please use the form. If you'd like to share your memories but also make my counting job easier, please post here AND use the Google Form.

    VOTING RULES THAT DEFINITELY WEREN'T COPY PASTED

    - You must be part of the URPG. Not sure what that means? Read our getting started thread and sign up for a starter today!
    - You may vote for up to two people in each category, neither of whom can be yourself.
    - This is only about URPG 2017. Think about the whole year and no other years/other forums, if you can.
    - Reply in this thread only with your votes and/or the Google Form. If you want to talk about the voting, hit up Discord or the URPG General Chat.
    - Voting will end January 31st, 2017 at 11:59pm GMT.
    - Winners are honored in the Respect Hall for the whole year! They don't get any money though.


    - Note: "Best" means the most skilled, where "Favorite" means your personal favorite. They can be the same person, but they do not have to be.

    I guess just in general, all the times the community came together. The podcasts, the karaoke night, the times everyone was just joking around in chat together. These were the times that gave me faith that URPG might survive. Not staff changes, not policy changes - the times when the community didn't care about all the political crap. Don't let go of that.

    Most Dedicated Member: Okay.
    Spoiler:
    I know this is against the rules, but I don't care; consider this a nonvote. I vote for me (and others, but that's further down). I know this sounds selfish and all, but let me explain a bit.

    When BMG nuked the URPG and more and more came to light, I faced a moral dilemma: stay and work with people who have done such things to try to preserve this game and help the community and innocent players, or do I cut my losses and realized there is just too much history I don't know, too much backroom trash talking, and too much toxicity to handle? How could I continue and work without sacrificing my own morals-- are they too insignificant to take into consideration, i.e. am I being melodramatic about my morals and their part they play in this, or do I consider this a significant moment in my life where I choose morality over pleasure (pleasure being to just continue playing the game and try to work through it without more issues)?

    I chose morality. Morality meant more to me than an online game-- even if at the cost of a community (no offense). I did want to at least try, if nothing less, try to make some change for the better and see if URPG could change. So I asked for Harry and Mon to step down along with a few other staff members who were involved with the Zoo. I felt it was the only way we could go forward and continue. I gave my ultimatum and majority of staff did not agree with me, until Ely gave her large and detailed post (not adamantine, the latter). After that people started asking for Harry to step down as well, and he eventually did.

    With that and large, tough discussions in #staff, there was enough change happening where I wouldn't have felt morally corrupt staying, and thus I did (obviously). I remained on as a mod helping and giving my input on all the vast issues staff had to deal with there after, and remained as Head of Onmyo. Onmyo is still growing and settling, don't get me wrong-- but I did all this while working through the holidays, and setting up for my last semester of pre-reqs for med school. I think the smarter decision would've been to left and focus on my studies, but I enjoy this community and all its people and what it can provide, so I did the more moral decision (at least in my view).

    Please don't take this as a "oh wow, look how morally just Liam is" or a "wow Liam really thinks he's so holy and self-righteous", this is just me explaining why I think I deserve a little symbolic pat on the back, even if it looks selfish or snotty, idgaf, I deserve it.

    Along with myself, I'm also voting for swiftgallade46, Monbrey, Smiles, and Elysia. Some of these people have literally made the majority of URPG's sections, updated and evolved the game throughout the years, developing software, contests, systems, RPs, etc, all for our own little joys of this game. Explaining why each of these people deserve this title similar to my own explanation would take pages (literally); they deserve Most Dedicated Member just as much- if not more, honestly, than I or any other member. So thank you guys, for what you've done and continue to do for this game and community.

    Most Intelligent Member: Ash K., Elysia
    Wish You Were Here: Elysia, Nitro, diamondpearl876, and a bunch of others honestly.
    Favorite Pokemon: Starmie, Arcanine

    Fondest Memory: New Life was fun: I stayed up the whole night because I had my apartment all to myself in France and had a blast on my couch-- I'm sure my neighbors didn't have as much fun though. Contest carnival was fun too. Also auctions by Mikey were awesome, especially since I won my first mon via auction :D! #goals #Icandiehappynow

    --OH also, the SWC was a blast with all the people from the WW; it was intense and winning 3rd was amazing out of the crop of awesome stories people wrote.
