Basically this is what it said in 2007, and it will be the same criteria again.

Please try to make top 3 rankings of posters, otherwise I won't know what to do when counting up votes. :lol:

General Messages Best Poster 2008

Nominate three posters who you think have been the best in General Messages. Your reasons for posting can be anything from liking their posts, agreeing with them, entertainment value or for whatever reasons.

Since this is a thread that is supposed to acknowledge posters, any reasons attached to those choices would be appreciated as would any honourable mentions, although those will not be counted in the voting process.

Order your nominations as follows:

1 - Poster A
2 - Poster B
3 - Poster C

In this scenario Poster A would get 3 points, Poster B, 2 points and Poster C, 1 point.

In approximately a week's time (next Wednesday) I will count up the nominations and there will be 20 posters put into two semi-final polls from which the top 5 of each will come out. Then there will be a final poll to see who is the best GM poster of 2008.

No, because a lot of GM posters/readers don't read non-tennis.

Well if that were the case, that would just prove how much the moderation has changed over the years, because no one would have even questioned it earlier.

This forum is so ridiculously overmodded nowadays, this is sure to be moved to the sub forum of some forum no-one ever reads. Looking at the same page of threads day after day is a blast.

It's the off-season, and GM is permeated with threads that are quite clearly troll-attempts. I see no reason why a contest that's been held here for the past two years should be moved :shrug:

1. Henry Chinaski - hilarious poster and has a great knowledge of tennis
2. MrChopin - combination of both insightful and funny posts
3. stebs - posts that jump out and stand out, and are always interesting

I also like reading posts from Heretic (underrated poster), Jaap (maybe more his contributions to the gambling forum), scoobs, Truc, shotgun, Rrainer.

Going for actual contributions:

1. Labamba
2. Truc
3. Voo de Mar

Especially Labamba, really underrated on this forum I think.

Bernard Black
12-18-2008, 10:13 AM
Macktheknife - sadly doesn't seem to post much here anymore, but has a wealth of tennis knowledge going back several decades.

GlennMirnyi - don't understand why people get on his back, most of his posts are funny and unlike the majority on the board actively plays tennis, and has a great understanding of technique.

Fast_clay - brightens up discussions with his humour as well as being a real guru of the game.

Nathaliia
12-18-2008, 11:29 AM
I always voted for PMK, Sjengster and Merton so this year there is a time for a change.

Labamba because he is underrented and I actually owed him votes in popularity contest

fast clay

finishingmove

(because they are hilarious)

honourable mentions:

* the golden three I used to vote in previous years, for obvious reasons, Merton gets away with the fact of being a Roddick fan
* Voo de Mar - Mr Statistics, big dedication to tennis, English improved to a cosmic level upon years so it's not only that he gives smth to GM but also GM gives something to him

*Henry Chinaski - pun master and at the same time can make sense (much to my surprise even when he's drunk)

*adee-gee - Rafafan ( :o) but the comical value of his entries and outstanding quality of the reports

* shotgun - ex moderator of GM from whom one new mod whose name shallnotbenamed can learn the lack of bias and ability of estimationg the situation

* krystlel - rare ability of making sense in this forum

* Truc and Jelena, both great for the translations, and Fran also gives information about the French tennis

* stebs, again a person who can make sense but this one has a nasty manner of always having the last word

* HeretiC - I still don't know why people didn't like his thread titles, I found them very funny

* CooCooCachoo - another underrated poster, I appreciate him for always bringing information about the players so many people don't know about, and for promoting challenger section in the GM by starting the threads after interesting matches

* GlennMirnyi - Successful come back of GM to GM after 6 months of ban, and I think nobody denies Gu beyond all his excessive trolling really knows his thing about tennis and often is able to make a decent conversation about it, plus his language use is also outstanding for a young foreigner (I don't mean when he is calling people mugs but when he has a normal discussion on this forum :o)

last but definitely not least

* scarecrows - just because :D

Well, there is a number of good posters. I think I could make a list of top-20 or even top-30, but will narrow it down to only three as the competition rules suggest :)

1) Deboogle - IMHO, the most intelligent and polite person around; ok, I do admit that as a fellow Roddick fan I may be very biased here :)
2) GlennMirnyi - a fellow S&V and fast surfaces fan, who has a lot of interesting posts about tennis techniques in the amateur tennis section
3) JimmyV - extremely tough choice here, but decided to vote for a poster, whose funny/witty posts make me laugh 99% of the time :D

Merton, Sjenster and Cmon Aussie.

The first two speak for themselves and Cmon says a lot of silly things but I find his threads make for some interesting discussions and whilst it can be an irritation he does add something to the forum. On the other hand I find the seemingly popular endless streams of sarcastic answers to threads on these forums incredibley tiresome.
