Lets see who is in the line-up for the 2008 Hunter Awards!
It's not an official award, nor will you gain anything by winning one, but I would simply like to express my views about other members, and this feels like the best way.
(Also, if you are a winner, feel free to brag about being a 'Huntey' winner in your journal or Bio)

Wait, who won the MV mod award? :P
I think you missed a name there.
Poll: should I give out the TWHL awards (e.g. red bucket of spam) again this year?
Penguinboy PenguinboyHaha, I died again!

I hope 2009 will be just as unproductive. :)

3 nominations and 2 wins, holy crap. Thanks!

...Is this when I give my boring, long-winded acceptance speech before getting pissed off when the music plays? Because I've always wanted to do that.

Oh, I've got that in spades. You should have seen the time I came back from the dead to find my amnesiac wife in a love triangle with my best friend and my half-brother who at the time I never knew I had. Boy was that a hectic week.

Whatever...

Why is my Space Shuttle Source Mod not mentioned in the "The Best Mod In Progress" catagory?

Does it suck? :o
Or simply because i never made a thread about the mod?

Aw well... It doesn't matter. :)

I can't believe I actually got that award again. I mean, I wasn't even trying. I actually spent most of my time on TWHL this year avoiding as many technical mapping discussions as possible, yet I still manage to be the most helpful person on the forums? Hey, I'm not complaining!

Oh, and Habboi, I'm going to start challenging that title of yours pretty soon. You just wait.

Thanks for the Awards Huntey <3
I wish I could post more example maps, but I haven't had a working computer since late summer 08. Since then HL2 hasn't worked very well, nor the computer in general. And now my new one is totally broken. They are replacing it tho, hopefully with a working one, so I can get back to pumping out examples! :>

Thanks again!

to repeat my post:
Who won the MV mod award?
And should I give out the TWHL stats awards or not bother (e.g. awards for most shouts, forums posts, etc)?

We get, what, 4 votes per month?

You'd probably get more votes if MOTM was up to date, and you'd keep MOTM up to date if you got more votes! Circular logic wins again. :P
