    A tough one this. I get different qualities from different posters. I would say that the best all-round poster (despite being a total ****) is NZTailender, or geg if you will. Top year from the ****, ban aside,

    Best Thread
    You know what really grinds my gears? remains the flagship thread for OT. It was ran close by this bad boy though (both geg threads, interestingly).

    Best Board
    Dev League. CC has seen an influx braindead trolls of late and OT has had a lot of political bollocks that has gone round in circles, has been otherwise decent this year though (it always is). Devvers is so much fun, it's probably the reason I've doubled my post count this year.

    Gonna shoot with this one, as it was the guy's first post, a great way to start off life at CW (compared to what seems to be the accepted way of doing it: "Australia are ****e lolzzz )

    Mitchell can't have this this year as he has been a lot quieter. Richard takes the cake.

    Prediction for which new poster will make it big in 2009
    No idea

    Lifetime Achievement Award
    Top_Cat, seems to post more than he has done before in at least my three years of being here, has been at CW since pretty much the start and is a top, top poster

    Hadn't seen that best post before. Seems interesting but will have to read it later as there's a Bulls game on.
    RIP Craigos

    The funniest poster for me is Burgey. Rarely fails to draw a chuckle. I also propose we rename the "We Miss You" award the "sledger tribute" award.

    It was unfair draging: CDM, Sanz and me into that. I know sometimes we get a bit muddled up with our posts, but I don't thinkwe have ever tried to offend anyone.
