Wow! I actually won something! I think I'm in shock...

Thank you everybody! heart I've only been a member of this forum since November, and already I feel like I've been here forever. Everybody here has been so kind and Beatley and just generally amazing. I love you all.

Oh wowzie, I haven't been the biggest George fan since 2016(?). Thanks very much, and also best signature, that was very unexpected. 

I shamefully voted for myself in the signature section because I always thought I had a good signature and knew I wouldn't win but I wrote a comment to SS? about my signature. Nice to know that other people like it.

 

Well done to everyone who won something, and thanks to everyone who voted. It's good to see some new names on the list!

Ah well, nothing for me this year, but I'm happy to see @50yearslate get her first award. I was one of the many who voted for you in the "Most Hardcore Beatles Bible Fan" category! ahdn_george_08

Well, I most certainly don't deserve the John award since I have been so absent from the forum, but if no one else wants it I will be glad to continue winning it. I was hoping someone else would win it this year so that I could say I had faith in the voting system.

I let voting day come and go without voting, but at least I didn't commit voting fraud.

OMG, consecutive awards in the same category!! beatlemaniacs_02_gif I never expected something like this, certainly not for that particular post. (I did had high hopes for the "sequel" post of April 11, in fact considered voting for it myself, then decided it was wrong to self-vote...and then said 'feck it!' and went on to vote for my own sig just like ASJr.!)

Congratulations and thanks to all you (us) 2018 nominees & winners, with a special mention to 50yearslate  (...and making up for lost time!) And to Joe and the mods (and rockers and mockers) for the work they do all year. And finally, as always, to Starr Shine, who deserves an award for herself for doing this every year. heart

Thanks again and all the best for 2019!

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Wait a second, SS? said that Zig was voted at least once in every category (which I can very easily imagine because he's a legend) BUT who voted him for the biggest Ringo fan?!!?!

Every fecking year you barstewards make me do this fecking walk to the podium, swinging a half-full or half-empty bottle of champagne (depending on your view of life), with the heels fecking killing me.

(I really don't know how you ladies do this day after day...)

Surprised to get the joint "on Topic Poster" with Joe. I will try better not to be and I apologise... a-hard-days-night-paul-10

News should NOT be abolished, @Starr Shine?. Very important and much work goes into sharing the latest group and solo information.

It is always a pleasure to share what I know with you beautiful people and I am always humbled at this time of year.

I thank you all.

(Only change I would suggest would be making the "Mr Sun King " award made by Joe and our fantastic Mods rather than one person...)

Thanks as always to the wonderful @Starr Shine?.

Where's the fecking bar? My bottle's only half full! Too much blood getting into the alcohol stream...

I think sun king shouldn't always go to the same person.

One thing that would be really cool is to have the badges displayed on the winners mini profile. Like have it replace their post rank or something or somewhere else if it could be.

I thought RN was suggesting Joe and the mods decide who wins the award.

That would be cool, or you could put it in your signature. Either work?
