  • El Presidente

    Deleted the ones i have no opinion on, can't make a decision, or forgot my fave:

    Best T shirt Model - all of the Masked Clothing models, especially this lass:



    Company of the year - Masked Clothing/Sober Is Sexy. Two really professionally done lines, and Bori works his ass off to make them work.

    Best GIF - Newman's "Pussy Tit Juggle" gif :)

    Most Improved - I'm going to have to go with Cryface purely on his vast skill improvements!

    LOL of the year - A tie between ASCII town and Tinychat

    Rip of the year - Kyle's Red Dead Remption rip, along with his hypocritical defense of his work. Better than any Indo imo.

    Empteer of the year (give reasons) - I think I'm due this year, I'll go ahead and say it. Dobi works hard to mod the site, and Yardley has his fantastic jabs at people, but I try to bring both humor and solid advice while keeping the drama to a minimum.

    Empteer that should leave FOREVER! All of the Indonesians. I don't mean that as a racist statement, but the quality of this site has taken a significant dive since you guys came into town.

    Empteer that should come back - Godmachine. Even though I see him on Tinychat every once in a while :)
