I wasn't suggesting the "Mr Sun King " award should always go to same person, @Starr Shine?. I was suggesting it be awarded by committee rather than just you, and Joe and the Mods, alongside you, should have a discussion about where it goes.

I've said it before, and will continue to. Here and privately.

My query on it wasn't about Zig getting it, very well worthy, but how many people were involved in choosing Zig for this year's award. I think it was one unless things have changed since last year.

I just think it would be nice if where that award went was decided by discussion.

Yep it was one, just like all the years. It could be changed though.

Believe me, @Starr Shine?, it is not a criticism of you, just a thought that that particular award -- because it is unique in that forum members do not have a vote -- could be approached differently.

I know you don't give it lightly, but I'm pretty sure there's times you sit there wondering where it goes. A behind-the-scenes discussion I think would make it easier, like the Oscars panel deciding who gets a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Well, I've had it for years. I think finding who came first would be quite difficult. I have no recollection of ever deliberately taking your signature and that would be a very stupid thing to do in the first place.

Well ^ I did a bit of research to the above accusation of me adding Ex Tex's signature to my own. I spent about 5 minutes on the WayBackWhen machine and discovered that as early as the 29th November 2015 neither Ex Tex nor I were using the quote in our signature.

(Although the posts says January 2014, screenshot is from the above mentioned date)

 

As late as the 20th of April 2016 I was using the quote.

Now I'm gone for the day so I won't be able to research more until tomorrow but if someone else wants to find out who is the "definitive owner" of the stupid quote, go on ahead.

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.
  

That'd be @Joe level work to see if it is possible.

I put 'em in my sig, and if you mouse over or hold down (on mobile) the images, they should tell you what each badge means. ahdn_john_08_gif

Thanks everyone for voting for me, I feel so honoured! Also glad to see the Fiendish Thingy award went to the right place this year, last year was an anomaly which I'm not proud of and don't wish to repeat. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

Well, okay, I'm a little bit proud of it. But I still don't wish to repeat it. a-hard-days-night-john-1

And @AppleScruffJunior... I feel moved to confess, I voted for myself too (in the category 'Poster with the best avatars') a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

Well, one thing is for sure, I never noticed you also had the quote until this week. I was kind of hoping you had stolen it from me because that would be a cool way to win an award.

THE AWARDS DO SAY WHAT THEY ARE THAT IS SO COOL.

HTML editing enables you to hide mouse-over messages in images. It's great. a-hard-days-night-john-1

When you upload an image and you get that long string of text, look for the bit that says title="something" and put whatever you wish in between the quotes, so long as it hasn't any apostrophes or quotation marks in it.

There is a puppy called Mr. Bojangles

and I used to use him to inspire people to vote in the End of Year awards. If you didn't vote bad things would happen to the puppy like he would be forced to eat coal-flavoured treats.

Funny, that, I used to know a cat named Mr. Bojangles. He was a similar colour too, kind of Wheatie orange.
