Welcome to the annual Grimy Awards. Some of you are new to mtbr this year and I want to welcome you to an annual event that turns this dull discussion forum into a fun popularity contest that rivals any high school event--and you don't have to wear hip-huggers and glue a cell phone to your ear. Vote for your fave personalities on mtbr during the 2005 year!


Voting will be done using a simple Borda Count Ranking with each voter entering their top two candidates in order of preference. Votes will be tallyed at 2 votes for a, 1 vote for b. Sounds complicated? Just enter your top two candidates in order and don't worry about it
(if you duplicate a name, the lower ranking names will be dropped). And if you only have one name, just only put one down...don't kill yourself over this. Not all categories need to be completed, but try to complete as much of this as you can. Remember, your vote counts!


Happy voting.

Copy the text below and paste in an email addressed to [email protected]. Fill in the blanks and send it. (Do not reply with votes to this thread). If you prefer not to let me see your email (I won't do anything with it), copy that text and Private Message (PM) grimymaster here on mtbr.com. Only one ballot per registered mtbr.com member, registered on or before December 31, 2005.

Gregg, can you sticky this to the top?

BTW, I got a note that the mail didn't work. It did for somepeople. If you type it by hand, There are underscores that are hidden due to the hyperlinking.

someone I know. I was just thinking the same thing. Jim
With the "new and improved" MTBR there is hardly anyone that I recognize anymore either. I just quickly scan the subject matter, never look at the writers' names and without a visible thread (the best part EVER of mtbr) never see who does the answering.

Oh hi Jim, I just noticed that it was you who I was answering. BTW - don't change your avatar (yeah I did see that post!) as it's the best one here! Too funny.

Hey, maybe Francis could have an old pharts forum (or we could hang out in the vintage/retro area).

The Grimeys have always been kinda gay, IMO. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Heck, this year's version is even spelled wrong (compared to previous years, anyway).

Hey good idea Rad! We could kick out the newby punk-ass people eh? We could talk about our friction shifters, quill stems, Dalerider and make fun of Brad Trent! What was the question again?

See, some people have NO sense of history.

Speaking of BT, did you get his Christmas card? (maybe they don't let his sh!t flow north of the border...)

Steven Spielberg(!) - and I thought Jenna Elfman and Brett Favre were impressive.

my sources tell me that the birthday fairy is on extended vacation. besides, she doesn't recognize anyone here now either.

Hmm, I always suspected MA was the BF. You, being a former Canadian resident, are adding fuel to that theory. Or maybe it was you all along?

Anyway, she never did me. ....Uh, that doesn't sound quite right, does it?

I totally agree!

I'm to much of a lurker to know anybody...anyways, where's the catergory I won 3x in a row?? Until Crasher stole my crown :(

What? Aren't my e-mails geting through?

I can't believe that there STILL isn't a "Best Looking Bovine Avatar" category. Sheesh.

I guess there's always hope that enough booze-hounds out there will vote for the Slatyfork Shuffle, but they seem to be the forgetful lot, go figure.

Oh yeah I got Trenty's self-gratifying, ego-stroking xmas card. I'm sure Canada Customs deliberated whether to let it through or not. Where is the big poof anyway? He breezes in about once every twenty months and then he's gone again. And to think, I came *this* close to giving him CPR. I still heave at the thought. I'm surprised I don't have nightmares.
