The end of 2017 is fast approaching.
Much has happened over the past year. We’ve lost comrades and gained many new friends. We had blogs promoted to the frontpage and users promoted to staff. We highlighted comments weekly, recaps nightly and interviews semi-frequently. We exchanged friendcodes, IDs and gamertags. We fought wars about sandwiches. We debated merits of waifus. We posted catgirls and boys on schedule. We ate food off toilets. We saw a user valiantly sacrifice his left nut just so another user could be summoned from Disqus purgatory. We were threatened to be shanked daily. We got new Canadian overlords. I guess we even played video games. Through thicc and thin, we experienced this year together.
Now it’s time to reward those moments and users that stood out the most for us.
Here’s how it will go: I’m going to list a bunch of categories….and then you will vote on them. It’s as simple as that! Every answer will be a write-in, or GIF-in, that way nothing will get missed. Also it’s not necessary to vote on every category if you don’t want to. No-votes are perfectly fine! Feel free to explain why you’re voting the way you are if you’d like. Even change your answers!
I’ll have a template at the very bottom to copy & paste for easier vote-posting. If you really don’t want your votes to be seen, you can PM me, otherwise they can just simply go down in the comments. Take your time, no need to rush, and have fun with it!
Now let’s get to it!
Destructoid GIF of the Year
Kerrik showed us that there is literally a GIF for every situation Wes could envision. Which GIF was your favourite over the course of 2017?
Dtoid’s Sexiest Member
This can be you….Destructoid’s sexiest user! Who gets your blood rushing?
You can often tell a lot about a person by the banner they display on their user page. It is the flag they fly on the high seas of Dtoid. Whose banner has left a lasting impression on you?
Avatars are the like your internet face. Who has the best, most iconic, internet face?
#Hashtag of the Year
The existence of this question may be trending into #Darksiders2 territory but which #hashtag on Destructoid is what stands out most for you in 2017?
Waifu of the Year
Waifus are cute and adorable and funny and sexy. Which waifu was the best of 2017? Don’t even bother voting on this one, Torchman.
I don’t know. This felt like it had to be a category to vote on. Post your favourite thicc-catperson.
Between sharing interests and all the sexual tension flowing through here, it’s no surprise some friendships might start developing into something more. Which is the cutest couple of 2017, whether they know it or not?
Drama of the Year
Normally you want to avoid drama at all costs. You’ll live longer and be happier. Not here. Stare into the abyss! What was the most memorable shitstorm that hit Dtoid in 2017?
User most likely to be Angie’s first murder victim
Angie plans to one day kill us all. This is inevitable. Accept it. Who amongst us will be the first to fall?
Shitposting is love. Shitposting is life. Which was the best qpost all year?
User most missed
People leave Destructoid. Life gets complicated or busy. The fit here is no longer right. Pixie was on duty. Whatever the reason for their absence now, which Dtoider do you miss most fully and completely?
Most Generous Upvoter
Bing! You see that the disqus notification bubble is red and it excites your brain! Which user knows best what buttons to press to make you feel all tingly inside?
Top Fap Giver
Fapping your own posts is frowned upon. Luckily this person often lends a hand to make sure you feel satisfied and validated! Who would you say is Dtoid’s top fapper?
Ready Player 2!
Gaming can be tough. Having a partner in crime, a buddy to have your back or a mentor to lead the way can turn a frustrating situation into a pleasurable one. They might even just have killer gamer recommendations. Which user is a sentient companion cube?
Newbie of the Year
Dtoid keeps attracting exceptionally awesome people. It’s a good problem to have. Who joined over the last year that you can’t imagine Dtoid without?
User most likely to be Morpho
Ok now who of those people who recently joined are definitely Morpho?
The cblogs may be the equivalent to the minor leagues of Dtoid, but there are budding superstars and heavy hitters dropping quality community blogs on a daily basis. Which Dtoider do you feel deserves a special shoutout for the quality they bring?
