*It's the most wonderful time of the year...*

Feckin' feckin' heel time again...

I still don't know how the fairer sex handle these things, nor you ladies. And what point in stockings that are more hole than anything?

Oh well, 'spose you feckers only make this fecker go through this rigmarole once a year.

So, three new shiny badges that look not entirely unfamiliar...

Most Helpful After a Question Is Posed – 2013-19
Most informed poster on Beatles history – 2015-19
Most informed poster on current Beatles news – 2017-19

Three good categories to keep being recognised for... and I thank you for your appreciation of my efforts... I keep expecting one or all to go elsewhere but still you keep on lumbering me with them... Oh well...

Huge thanks to @Starr Shine? for her always sterling work on these awards.

The Mr. Sun King award is an honorary award made for an outstanding contribution to Forumpool in some way, or is meant to be...

I always argue, and do so again, that its awarding should involve a discussion between the mods and SS? Unfortunately, it seems that SS? alone has again plucked some random reason to award it (being the only tie in this poll is an outstanding contribution?)...

The MSK award, named after the founder of the BB Awards, is the only award that consistently disappoints me in how it is done. Get involved mods, make suggestions, discuss... make it more than the random throwaway it's becoming.

I very much agree that finding a really special reason to award the MSK award would be a good idea - I hope the forum agrees. I'm sure us mods can find a good reason to award an awardgeorge-martina-hard-days-night-george-10

Mr. Sun King Coming Together Award doesn't have a badge since it isn't a voted category. Though the problem with having more people with this award is the time factor. Like Zig for example hasn't been on since August. There could be a system for it, like a secret thread or something discussing the mods choice and I could just implement that or something idk.

Got to be honest, I had no idea this was happening. Congratulations to all the winners.

As for the MSK award, I'll get involved if it's a mod thing but since I nor any mod has never been asked there has been no reason for us to do so. Starr Shine? does such a noble job doing so and it would be a disservice for any mod to do so. 

As I won sod all I'll jump in tho and award it to me.

OMG I completely forgot about these awards last month. Sorry I didn’t vote for anyone and thanks for my award.

I guess I need to spend a little more time here.
