    CW 10 year anniversary awards

    Next month sees the 10th anniversary of the website so we will be running a number of different articles and features etc. to celebrate this achievement.

    One of the suggestions that has come to mind is to bring back the awards for a 10 year anniversary special.

    This is where I need people's help though as I can't remember every single post in history so I need nominations please.

    Posts can have been made by any person at any time (although obviously predictions need to have been made before the game)

    There are going to be the following categories:

    Cricket Chat:
    Best post
    Best thread
    Funniest poster
    Funniest post
    Most knowledgeable poster
    Best prediction
    Worst prediction
    Best debate
    Lifetime achievement award(s)

    In addition, for the first time ever, I'm going to open up some the following awards

    Off Topic / General Sports:
    Best post
    Best thread
    Funniest poster
    Funniest post
    Best prediction (non-cricket)
    Worst prediction (non-cricket)
    Most bizarre post
    Best debate
    Lifetime achievement award(s)

    As I said, I need people to help me by digging into the archives and email me with nominations.

    For individual posts I need a link to the post (and if a prediction a link to the final result) - for poster awards, please send me a bit of information as to why you think the person deserves the nomination (and possibly a few links as to examples of that)

    If possible I'd like submissions by end of next week please.

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    I think we need another category then:

    "Best Panel of Staff Members"

    I demand a lifetime achievement award for attracting grumpy fast bowlers who want to bowl bouncers at me and my big mouth to this forum.

    I'm like the Sarah Palin of the forum; I'm cringeworthy and I don't know ****, but I'm great advertising.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I've seen you laugh at Burgey ranting.

    It may not be with him, but it was laughter...
