The nominations for the 2015 KH-Vids User Awards are now open! Hey guys! For those who have never participated in the User Awards, or need a bit of a reminder, there are two phases: nominations and polls. A user will not appear in the final polls without first being nominated by their peers, so if you want to see someone in the poll, make sure you nominate them! Another important thing to note this year is that we had a poll to decide whether the 'worst' nominations would be self-nominations or open nominations and open nominations won. If you feel you would rather not be put on the poll and don't want to know if you've been nominated, please approach a staff member and request it. Before we begin, make sure you’ve read the general info on the User Awards. If it has left your questions answered, shoot me a message or post in this thread before nominating! 2015 User Awards Categories Spoiler * New categories indicated by this pink color!

(4) Best Podcast Guest Most Wanted Podcast Guest Best Podcast Episode Most Memorable Podcast Moment How do I nominate users? Nominations will be sent to a number of different staff members, who will then tally the results and deliver them to the admins. Categories, as you can see above, are organized into major groups; each staff member is given a group to handle. You will start a personal conversation with the applicable staff member, listing your nominations. Please take time in considering your nominations, because once they’re in, there’s no going back! Please try to utilize only the user’s current username. We will not hunt someone down if you put their past username or a nickname, and we reserve the right to ignore the nomination all together if you neglect to follow this rule. You are allowed to nominate two users per category. For group categories, such as Cutest Couple, you can nominate up to two couples. The same goes for threads. You may not nominate yourself for anything but the two specially marked categories (see above). However, you may nominate a couple you are in for Cutest Couple (or any similar category). You will include the entire category list in your message, even the categories you are not nominating for. Please do not nominate members who do not belong in the category; I realize it’s hilarious to vote William, a Premium member, for Best Overall Staff Member, but it spoils the awards for those who do deserve them. There may be exceptions. These nominations cover the time period from the previous User Awards (summer of 2014) to this year’s (summer of 2015). If a member held a position during that time period, they are allowed to be nominated for it. For example, if William was a Sectional Moderator until February of 2014 but is now a Super Moderator, he is allowed to be nominated for both Best Sectional Moderator and Best Super Moderator.
