Well, in true tMP tradition we feel it's important to celebrate past events, both here on the site, and in the general banding world and so we introduce the "tMP '4 Years Live' awards". I am sure some of you will remember previous years awards, so as we have just passed our 4th birthday, later today (26th) we will open the nomination categories for this years awards. These nomination threads will run till Sunday 10th December, when we will close and collate the nominations. You will then be able to vote on the top 10 nominated entries in each category up until midday on Saturday 23rd December. The results of all the polls will be collated, and announced on Sunday 24th December - maybe an early Christmas suprise for some eh. The rules are the same for previous previous year awards!: The Judges decision is final - judges on these awards are tMP Moderators and SiteAdmin - though the polls will determine ultimate winners... The "4 Years Live" awards are meant as a good 'ol banding fun - please don't be offended if you don't win. There will be a maximum of 10 nominations entered in each category - if more than 10 nominations are received, then the award judges will determine which nominations are carried forward and entered into the final polls. Nominations will be accepted up until midday Sunday 10th December - voting in online polls will commence later that day. Voting will close at 12:00 midday on Sat 23rd December with the results being announced and posted on tMP on Sunday 24th December Anonymous nominations can also be made by PM to one of the judges. The judge will then enter the nominee in the category. Once again the categories have been split up into two main groups - 'Fun Awards' and 'Banding Awards' - nominations will be accepted for all categories apart from Award #19 - 'The Website of the Year' - the nominations for this award will be the previous winners of the Website of the Month contest; and Award #20 - the 'tMP Special Award - for outstanding contribution to the banding movement' - the winner of this award will be selected by the tMP Team.
