a poll would be ideal considering everybody has a say in it. i think thats what the other thread was about. it was about people nominating who they want. i am sure a few people nominated the 2 and i see that is being perfectly ok. you really arent seriously gonna raise a ruckus about the nominations are you? if people dont think any nominee deserves to win they wont vote for them. it is insulting when you say things like the fact that ruchir and CP are nominees means that the whole awards are a joke.

My suggestion for formation of such a jury body which fairly represents this DG is as follows:

1. Kban1
2. Dextrous
3. Dhruvdeepak
4. Fineleg
5. Mock Turtle
6. K-slice
7. Justforkix
8. Keep-it-cool

Let these people, as mentioned above form some basic policies and go ahead with the nominations.

Jaat,
I see no need to exclude 'tainted folks'...why do we need to exclude folks?
Is there any justification?

the point of this thread was for everyone to put down lists of all candidates they'd consider for nominations (not only the one person they will vote for). It would be great if you guys could do that. Of course, if the people you want to nominate are already in the list there is no need to post them again.
and certainly not to put down different members.

i am sorry but i do not agree with this logic of 'tainted' members not being included. Maybe 'tainted' members should also not be allowed to vote??
Then I will have to remove feverpitch, yourself jaat, Teddy, tombaan and CP and whole award categories will be gone. that is besides the point that. having been banned/suspended for a couple of days does not make CP's posts any less funny. Many people in these two threads have already vouched for him being a candidate for this award, and that is how it will stay.

as for the eventual nominations and awards, i have spoken with kban regarding this and we both think the best way to do it is to have an open-ended number of nominees. I.e. whoever is suggested will be entered as a nominee. But the decision on actual awards given will stay with me. If you guys have any ideas regarding this and want to discuss it, please post on the other thread. We will certainly consider alternative ways of going about this.
But, I intend this particular thread to be only for posting nominees/awards. Please discuss etc on the other one.

so please end this debate about excluding members from the awards. The whole idea for this thing is to get everyone together and to have fun. Excluding a member from winning an award because he said "f*** you" to a member or something childish like that is ridiculous.

Because, as I have mentioned before, the whole idea of this exercise is for everyone to participate in an event together. I want everyone in on this, regardless of their views of certain players and coaches, and to vote and enjoy what happens after together regardless of differences in their respective points of view. To stop a person from participating goes against this. What does disallowing a person from voting/ being nominated achieve exactly?

DD,
We are getting side tracked here. Even I asked these qns to jaat, but I realize he is going to have his opinion, but seems like majority is in favor of allowing everyone to participate and win awards, vote etc.
So, majority wins and we shud move on.

My nominations:

Funniest member-: Flute202020 ( his thread on "Pro-SG vs anti-SG: Progressive and non-progressive India divide", being my reference point).

Best thread: Well, actually there are many. I remember discussing various rules of galli-cricket in one thread. Was it in this DG or the Arjun Swaroop-one?

Rivalry: Not sure, whether to call it the best or not...............Gauravk & Blwe_torch( they started threads on each others' name...."Blwe's predictions" & "Gauravk's God-speak").
Also, Kban and Flute202020....going by the sheer volume discharged. It would put both Homer and Ved Vyas to shame! ;D.......in riverine terms, it is like Amazon vs Nile!


btw...by suggesting to keep asside tainted members, I have discounted my own chance too....plz note! ;D

i have added some of your suggestions to the list - if you point out the links to the threads you want to add to 'best thread' ill add 'em

Jaat
You have mentioned this opinion of disallowing 'tainted' members for past 2 days...No one has requested that to be followed - most everyone in DG (who is active) has read the posts, and a few disagreed, and the rest did not object either.

Polls, as u know can be manipulative.
I suggested a 8 -member jury.......you were there too.
I think that is a better idea.......than this 'majority'  thing!
What say!? ;D

But, if u start one, I am there with u on this.

bhai...I thought that the terms that I had used are harmless terms of endearment, provided you have the sense of humor ( and here you are expecting a humor-related award!) :(

Jaat, honestly I have nothing to say to you. I dont want to be speculating your dinner time conversations and terms of endearment and anyway any direct conversation with you goes down the drain so I would rather refrain.

For the rest of the DG. just fyi I dont expect any award here. I think DD and Jiet are funnier and in my book the humour award goes to them (split). I just was reacting to Jaat's post above where he was suggesting people warned or banned should not be in the fray. For the record I was never banned or warned on this or the previous DG (Dexy's old DG).

u sure mate? weren't you banned after that nice altercation you had going with me? i do remember a warning from arjun maybe a 3 day ban too. but then thats all water under the bridge now i guess.  :)

Oh yes i am sure .... that was on sightscreen DG ... not this one  :)

Above is jaat definition of how he originally meant it.
There are no "tainted" members here - "unofficial" warning, "advice" couched in warning, "warning" couched in reminders - Cmon! Folks grow up - no one in this DG are "tainted" or anything.

KBAN - pls. confirm that no one is "tainted" and end this matter by a post from Pitamah :)

Am I and CP the only ones who have been warned? And warned by WHO exactly?? One of those Mods who says hatefull things about others and personally attacks the members and then warn the members if they strike back!!! What a joke.

BTW, How can I be sure that you have not received any warnings thru PMs from the Mods??

Folks,
One thing - when the "actual voting" time comes - please leave the voting on atleast for like 9 or 10 days. Say a weekend + following week + next weekend.
Becos some ppl visit this DG on and off, some have to travel etc etc. So, in order to give proper time for folks to vote, allocate enough time for the poll booths to be open since afterall this is Cyberworld.

Cool as it may be to do short span or realtime voting, it is not practical.

 I actually thought about it a lot. I really dont want to be associated with this thread anymore. This is just the way I am. Earlier in the DG days, this place was one of the many on my daily browsing stops. I used to come with an attitude of "what the heck" and I can sledge with the best of them. I have actually been "fooled" by the recent bon homie of this DG. Have started considering a lot of people here as friends. To me to be referred to as tainted or anything is offensive. The fact that this was actually discussed in seriousness on this thread was infact even more offensive. And a complete silence by a majority of the DGians in this matter (or lack of people save a couple  openly aking Jaat to shut up) was the last straw.

I am not threatening to leave the DG or any such thing. I am not sure of my ability to do that. I spend way too much time here to give these " empty threats". But this was something that started as fun and it is no longer fun for me. So I want to stay away from this.

CP Chief,

Let me make my stand clear on this. I have not repsonded to Jaat because I did (I forget the word I want to use here) not think it was worthy of one. Not to mention the fact that DD himself had asked not clutter the thread with irrelavant horse*.

I am sure there others who see it the same way.

ditto.

CP if you think silence meant agreement you are wrong. I am surprised you think someone even took it seriously.

Chal Chal ab nakhre mat kar- be the same old bindaas CP and stop this "non-association" talk ( for once I agree with jaat ;D ;D)- ppl will start getting an impression you are using SG as role model with "I have nothing to say or do"  ;)

nobody has considered jaat's suggestion to be worthy of a reply - his 'theory' just does not hold any water. i dont know why you need people to openly come out in support of you,  but trust me, nobody (else) thinks you are 'tainted'. hell nobody on this DG is 'tainted' it is a ridiculous idea in the first place which has been deservedly rejected. more than one person has asked to add you (CP) to the 'funniest' list. i am in total agreement with this. i should hope that stands for something. if you are looking for some 'support' there it is.

if you are going to go sulk in the corner so be it, but if someone puts your name up for a nomination, as it stands your name will be put up on the list. I am not going to sit around for people's 'approval' of being a nominee. my pov is stop being a 5 year old and get involved with this. we have to try and take other people's posts in the right manner, after thousands of posts i would hope people have learnt that much at least.
