    Anyway, if we do have an award for OT, I think it should be for the best thread in there. Having to scour the whole OT forum could be a bit much for whoever gives out the award, but if they only had to recognise the best thread idea, it'd be easier and could work fairly well IMO. We could call it the David Lloyd award in recognition of his off-topic tangents while commentating.
    The question, though, is how many people who visit CC-posted Awards threads would be interested in that?

    If we have Awards related to OT, for me, it only makes sense to post them in OT.

    I think you might be surprised. There's one hell of a lot who post in OT and virtually never in CC.

    Just rename our awards as the CW - CC awards and get the ones who are regular in OT to start their own awards. IT will help split things up and also, OT should deserve more than the 1 award as it is easily the most active forum in CW.

    But I guess posting the OT award/awards here will help ppl like me who don't get time to check out OT at all..... WE will get to know the best of OT rather easily, I guess.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Precisely. The purpose of the OT award, if we were to create one, is to provide a little something for CC posters who are also involved in OT and give OT a little recognition until OT sets up their own set of awards, which may just be never.

    CDM actually tried to start up OT awards, and he was basically blasted for the idea and ended up deleting his own thread. Worth noting IMO.
