    Awards

    I was looking at another forum and saw that they had awards that everybody voted for. It looked really good. How come Cricket Web doesn't have awards for the forum members?

    We have tried it before, can't remember how it worked out. Not good I guess.

    Yeah it ends up turning into a popularity contest and stacks of members were against that. I mean no one wants to see Voltman, Brumby and Lucky Eddie walk off with a stack of awards

    If you do a search there was going to be some awards on CW; we even got as far as voting on members of the nominations panel.

    Think it kinda fizzled after that tho.

    exactly! although, just for you cloete, there could be an award for 'starter of the most annoying/pointless thread'

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    Because it seems a complete waste of everyones time if you ask me and somehow I think it would mean bugger all to 99.9% of visitors anyway.

    It wouldn't work as well on a non-gaming forum. By basing it on the mods made for Cricket2004 it's possible to partially avoid making it a popularity contest but never entirely. Still out of the 17 awards 15 different members have won so it's not too restrictive.

    That thread's quality! You don't have the rights to pay out that thread! Just ignore the fact that I haven't posted in it anytime I can remember and the fact I think it's the most worthless psot boosting thread in the forum

    Still... it does have history I guess!

    The Mods are FAR too overprotective and repressed in general. If people want to talk about something perfectly legal then they should be permitted to do so. Whether or not a thread is productive is entirely subjective. I don't really care what anyone else thinks is productive or not so why should moderators presume to know what we collectively want to discuss.
