HellOOOoooooo, beauties and gentlebeauties! Welcome to the 2018 edition of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Cardmaker Member Awards, with your host: The one, the only, Mettaton! (That's me, darling.)

I saw how this show looked last year. That rabbit was a decent host, but she lacked some qualities any true host needs to be a star! Dramatic flair! The charisma to keep people hooked! And of course, a positively STUNNING body as good as mine! With me at the controls, this is already shaping up to be a YCM Awards the likes of which this little forum has never seen before! Ah, but as much of a superstar as I may be, I'm not the star of this show. It's a pity of course, but a true star of the people knows when it's time to let someone else have the spotlight, at least for a little while.

Instead of me, dear beauties and gentlebeauties, the stars of this show will be YOU! Isn't that fantastic? I watched the tapes from last year's show, over and over until my poor little hard drive just couldn't take it anymore, and I know just how to run this show at a five-star level. I've based it on what our beloved viewers submitted for feedback. The rules are simple.

I've split our awards into ten categories. You can pick one person for each award if they meet the criteria, but only for that one award. You can't pick the same person for two or more different awards, and of course you can't pick yourself for any of these either! What kind of egomaniac would do that!?

...

...

...

...APOLOGIES DEAR VIEWERS! I was simply distracted by my gorgeous reflection in the camera lens! Now, where were we? Yes, right, of course, awards and voting! I'll be keeping careful track of these votes, so I'm afraid I must discourage changing your votes. I'm a busy robot, after all, but I'm also lenient, and will say: Every member is allowed to change each of their votes one time each. I did only say I was discouraging it after all, not banning it. When it's time for our show to come to an end, I'll reveal the winners in our grand finale!

But you must be asking by now, "Mettaton, what are those awards we're supposed to be voting people in for anyway?" Look at you. You're both handsome AND curious! (Not as handsome as myself, of course, because that would be preposterous.) Well darling, I'm glad you asked! There are ten different awards to be handed out this year, to see who's the star of which section, as well as some other small things to make sure everyone has a shot at winning. Of course, you don't have to vote for EVERY award; feel free to skip up to four awards if you can't think of anyone who deserves it. Now, without further ado, here are the awards we will be distributing in the 2018 edition of the YCM Awards!

 

  1. Rising Star: Everyone's favorite member, but only on the condition that their activity here started less than two years ago. Anyone with more than two years of activity on this site is not allowed.
     
  2. Cardmaker Star: Why yes dear, most people DO come here for the cardmaker! And this award is here to show just who we love the most for using it! Only members who are active in the Custom Cards sections are qualified for this award.
     
  3. Writing Star: Somebody has to write best-selling manuscripts! Let's see who everyone thinks is the best writer. To qualify for this award, a member must be active in the Creative Writing and/or Role Playing section.
     
  4. Artistic Star: Anyone can just say "Lights, camera, action!", but it takes a true genius to really make it a work of art! Not everyone has a grasp on those finer details of graphics, after all. Any member who is active in the graphics-related sections in Creative Commons or that lovely Crayon Corner, and has posted graphics content in either of those places within the last ten months, may qualify for this award.
     
  5. Critic Star: Everyone loves music, or media (especially featuring me), so let's see who we like best that discusses them. If a member is active in any of the Multimedia sections, they can qualify for this award.
     
  6. Reality Star: Reality can be a cruel mistress, but people will still talk about it all the same! In fact, the people on this website talk about all sorts of real-life things! Anyone active in General or Debates will qualify for this award.
     
  7. Comedy Star: Who doesn't love a good laugh? And we just so happen to have a section meant for exactly that! Anybody active in Miscellaneous is allowed to qualify for this award, but given the section's much higher activity than other sections, please vote responsibly!
     
  8. Classic Star: Looking to the future generation of this website is nice, but there's nothing wrong with some nostalgia either. In a stark contrast to the Rising Star award, the Classic Star is reserved only for members who have been active on this site for at least five years. But there's a catch. Members cannot quality for this award if they're not currently active - what's the point of a trophy if you don't show it off? - or if they are permanently banned from this forum.
     
  9. Star Manager: And now for a smaller one. Much smaller. Only moderators presently on the team can qualify to be a Star Manager.
     
  10. Monstar: And now a fun one, darlings. One of the largest-scale events on this website's calendar is the annual Halloween Masquerade, and members just love to make "best monster" polls after the show is over. So I'll do you one better, beauties and gentlebeauties! If you want to vote for the Monstar, you'll have to pick a monster that participated in any of the Halloween Masquerades! (Feel free to vote for me too, darling.)

    Monsters by year

And those, dear viewers, are this year's YCM Awards! Similar to last year, this year's prizes will consist of simply gorgeous graphical trophies that you can put in your profile, your signature, or anywhere really. Because you, darling, are a star this year. You might as well look the part. And the best part of this arrangement? Voting begins RIGHT NOW, dear viewers, and ends on June 18th! That's two weeks from today if you were about to do the math, darling.

 

And now, dear beauties and gentlebeauties, submit those votes! Please ask your wonderful host if you have any questions or concerns. I would simply hate for us to stumble around like foolish school clubs trying to pass themselves off as multi-million-dollar productions.

A list of all the monsters we can vote for would be welcomed.

I'm assuming members cannot vote for their own Monster personas. That should be needless to say.

 

I find a bit ironic that a ban won't disqualify from Classic Star, but a break will do. What about users who had a 3+ years break, but have spent 5+ after they returned? Asking for a friend.

 

Anyway, my nominations:

 

Cardmaker Star: Toyo

Artistic Star: Sleepy

Reality Star: Bernkastel

Comedy Star: Yui. I'm also considering his fun times, which are associated with Misc.

Classic Star: Lambdadelta (Hina)

Star Manager: Dad Tormented

Monstar: Monmusu

Ah, that. Well darling, this is simply to avoid potential loopholes, or anti-climatic scenarios where a permanently-banned member such as coolspy wins the Classic Star award because of a joke. As much as I love gag endings, this isn't the comedy show!

 

EDIT: My apologies, dear viewer! More-than-slight bug in communication. What I meant to say is that a member shouldn't be disqualified for reasons beyond their control. However, I will be making a slight modification to Classic Star for the reasons you've specified (everyone who has been nominated for this award will still qualify, so don't worry about changing your votes.) Thank you for your valuable input!

 

 

A list of all the monsters we can vote for would be welcomed.

As for this, there was going to be a list at first, but there were some budget cuts and scheduling errors with the director. But fear not! I, your loving and hard-working host, have compiled a list myself based on what records I could find! You can find monsters listed by the year in which they appeared just below, and for extra clarity, I'll be adding this list to the opening post as well.

STAY TUNED FOR AN IMPORTANT UPDATE, DARLINGS!

 

As promised above, I've made some changes to the Classic Star award, both to make it a bit more inclusive for old guard members that have recently returned, and also less confusing. The new version of Classic Star can be seen just below.

 

Looking to the future generation of this website is nice, but there's nothing wrong with some nostalgia either. In a stark contrast to the Rising Star award, the Classic Star is reserved only for members who have been active on this site for at least five years. But there's a catch. Members cannot quality for this award if they're not currently active - what's the point of a trophy if you don't show it off? - or if they are permanently banned from this forum.

We're here to run a show, darling, not a scandal. However, if you do desire a scandal, all press is good press. Perhaps I can arrange something if you give me a bit of time.

So sorry darling, but Frost King has been active for just a few months too long to qualify. The more I look at recent members, do we even have anyone that qualifies for Rising Star? I will be doing some further research on this matter and broadening the time span for it if it turns out we don't have enough new members. If I do this, Frost King will count.

 

As for your Monstar vote, I shouldn't have to explain the concern, right? You can still vote for Mauvache if you're that driven (who doesn't love confident viewers?), but I'm afraid that as much as I love my fellow entertainment hosts, I'll have to not count this vote.

It's okay i'll just edit the vote into the results no worries.

 

On a more serious note if Frost King doesn't count then I legit am unsure we have many members who would count. Not active ones at least.

Indeed, we don't have many members that would qualify. Just between you and me, I'm beginning to question our producers, darling. Effective now, our Rising Star may be any member who has been active for two or less years. This should expand our horizons a bit and allow plenty more of our audience to be included. A fabulous decision if I do say so myself!

So sorry darling, but you may have simply posted with bad timing. There have been some very recent changes to Classic Star to make it less confusing, where members who are no longer active (be it by choice or by permaban) do not qualify for this award. Unless Night is in fact active but has managed to elude everyone's attention, I must with the utmost kindness and charisma that you change your vote for the Classic Star.

I'd like to kindly withdraw from any and all nominations.  I'd like to be excluded from current and future events as well (if they include any nominations of any kind).  I apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
