Yes that's right folks. After a 18 month hiatus we are bringing back the WC awards! The WC awards have had more requests than the CM Punk ice cream bars so it's time for the voiceless to have a voice.
Truth be told, handing out awards became a bit of a hassle as there is alot that goes into the voting, but more so the actual handing out of the awards. It just seemed like the same dudes winning it over and over it was just not that much fun to do.
Well, there are a ton of new members now and alot of the people that have won dozens of awards have moved on or need some new company, That's where you guys come in.
All awards will be handed out by the Smod and Admin team except when a public voted award. We will run this the same way we run the Hall Of Fame voting. You the members nominate people in the catagories that are applicable to you and we will choose the winner from your top 5 nominees. Top 5 noms per category will be sent to the Orange and Black team.
*EDIT PLEASE NOTE THAT THE WC MONTHLY AWARDS HAVE BEEN CUT DOWN TO QUARTERLY AWARDS, MEANING THEY ARE NOW HANDED OUT 4 TIMES A YEAR TO AVOID BURNOUT*
Good luck and NO you can't nominate yourself. donkey.
You must have 100 posts to send in nominations or be eligible to be nominated.
