2017 FSTDT Awards

Category Nominations

Quote# 133675

This is the post where we nominate categories for the 2017 FSTDT Awards! Feel free to nominate as many categories as you like, discuss them, give suggestions, etc. in the comments below.

But don't start nominating quotes yet — just categories — though do give at least a couple example quotes from your category and a brief explanation of it if it's not self-explanatory. All examples will be eligible for nomination next month. If necessary, we'll narrow down the number of categories during the last week of this month. I think most categories will be accepted, though, provided they're not overly narrow, and they have eligible quotes from at least three or so people. (But finding and demonstrating this is you guys' job.)

I've provided an example category nomination below. (If you know me, you probably already know what it's about.)

Also note: Unless most of you guys object, we're just going to award individual quotes this year instead of people, since the winners would most likely be "X of the Year" anyway. There will also only be two rounds of elimination. But I'll get more into detail about that when it comes time to nominate quotes.

Standard Categories

The quote of the year
• Religious
• Wingnut
• Moonbat
• Conspiracy theorist
• Racist
• Sexist (Split into Misogynist, Misandrist, Binarist? Y/N)
• Funniest
• Nightmare fuel
• WTF?! (For incomprehensible and just plain bizarre stuff, such as this)
_

Nominated Categories

UFOnaut of the year (shy): Quotes about UFOs, aliens, alien-like "extradimensional entities," and so forth. These sorts of quotes are just inherently funny to me for some reason, and this has been a banner year for them; see here, here, and here

Edgelord of the Year (Pharaoh Bastethotep): - self-explanatory.

Pseudointellectual of the Year (Pharaoh Bastethotep): - self-explanatory.

Unreliable Narrator of the Year (Pharaoh Bastethotep): for incel or ***maniac anecdotes that are, at best, obviously warped beyond recognition, if not outright fabrications.

Veruca Salt Award (Salami): For achievements in unwarranted entitlement and whining

At this rate, we're going to have more awards than posts in 2017...

Not to mention the fact that the "woe is me" award is going to have a lot of overlap with the "first world problems" award. And the "we have to dig deeper" award has a lot of overlap with "nightmare fuel."

When we do the vote can we limit this to a 'vote for five (or some other reasonable number) category suggestions that aren't your own' kind of thing?

11/15/2017 9:06:43 PM

Pharaoh Bastethotep

@pyro, dxdydz: The number of categories with quotes up for vote is going to narrow down very, very drastically. Thing is, I don't know to which. I'm going to require at least five nominations from three different fundies for a category's nominations to go up for vote. Nominating quotes is what we're going to do next, and it's going to be partially automated. I got my PHP script cocked like a gun and ready to go this time. But let everybody get their ideas out first.

I highly, strongly doubt anything close to every single category is going to have enough contenders. I still wanted ideas for new categories, and turns out I got them and then some!! I was only expecting about 23-24 comments with only a handful of nominations, and I was only expecting a couple of them to wind up culled after quotes were nominated. I am more than happy to be wrong about this, though.

Also, big big big thanks to Bastethotep for keeping up with the nominations! Also, thanks to SomeApe for nudging me. The list of categories will be updated soon.

We had it last year and I think we should have it this year: Conspiracy theory of the year. I know it doesn't fit into the 'just doing quotes' thing, but it's fun.

Salami

Trump Award for Buffoonery in Bigotry

You know those fundies that are obviously trying to hard to seem cool, scary, effective, and badass but it just comes off as pathetic or childish instead? Stuff that would ordinarily get into nightmare fuel territory if it were in any context and in light of any events but the one it happens to be in and/or done by anybody but the fundie in question? Well, that's what this award is for. Distinguished from the unintentional hilarity award because it has to be the sort of thing that was clearly trying to be badass, cool, powerful, or nightmare fuel but is the exact opposite as opposed to just something the fundie just wanted people to take seriously. Distinguished from the edgelord award in that it for the most part honestly reflects the fundie's (turgid) beliefs and is not allowed to actually succeed at being nightmare fuel on any level. It also has to be completely stupid and ill-thought out.

Some examples:
