The Golden Community Awards XVII: Nominations

Recommended Posts

Ready... steady... GO!

Here we are at that time of the year again, folks! (No, not that one. Get that cornucopia outta here before I shoot it!) After yet another action-packed year for those of us on SBC, it's time to begin ramping up to the one event that, much like the Dude's rug, really ties it all together: the 17th edition of the Golden Community Awards!

Coming off of a season of leading SpongeCraft Frontiers and other chaotic ventures, it was decided that, for 2023, the duty of hosting this year's GCAs shall fall to yours truly: the Bayou Barnstormer himself, HawkbitAlpha! Does that sound good? I hope so, because, right now, I feel like standing on a rooftop shouting out "baby, I'm ready to go!"

But, of course, our narrator would have to slap me with a fly swatter if we tried to begin so fast. Before anything else, we need to have our nominations for this year's GCAs! There's a few ins, outs, and what-have-yous that go into this process, so how about we go over those now?

  1. Post your nominations in this thread. It's in the interest of Transparency™, of course!
  2. Don’t nominate yourself. C'mon, this is a community! What are you people who'd do this? Senators?
  3. Don’t copy/paste other members' nomination lists. Sure, you'll probably have some of the same choices as others, but no two people will ever have the exact same lists. You can do better!
  4. When nominating, you must do at least one section. Creative Arts is not required, and staff will choose if nobody else nominates in that.
  5. You may nominate between 2 to 5 choices in the Members & Creative Arts sections. You can only nominate 2 candidates for the Hall of Fame categories.
  6. Don’t get upset if you aren’t nominated in this topic. There’s always next year!

Now, what categories are on the block this year, you might be wondering? Let's find out!



(Notes: A new category, "Sportiest Member", has been added to recognize users passionate about sports. The former awards of "As Seen on TV" and "Most Cinematic Member" have been combined to create the “Show Stopper” category, for our users most passionate about both television and movies together.)

Funniest Member
Kindest Member
Spongiest Member
Best Gamer
Show Stopper
Geekiest Band Geek
Most Artistic Member
Sportiest Member


(Originally for SBC stories, this section has now been retooled to also celebrate the community’s works of visual art.)

Best Creation
Best Miniseries
Best Episode
Best Comedy
Best Storyline
Best Character
Best Artwork
Best Pictionary Drawing

(The Best Artwork category refers to works featured in either the #da-art Discord channel or Squidward’s Art Show, while the Best Pictionary Drawing is for any Pictionary drawing archived on the game’s server. For both awards, be sure to link the image and say who was the artist that created it.)


(Note: For this section, you can only nominate 2 for each category. One new category has been added: “Honorary Skins.”)

Honorary Creation
(Stories that have had a profound impact on SBC will be nominated.)
("Adventures in the Underground City", "Storm Racers", "Jjs' Riffing Theater 3000", "JCMovies", "Team SpongeBob", "SBCinema", "Community Deathmatch", "Mystic Guardians", “My Leg!”, “Skodwarde”, “The Silly Adventures of Patrick Star”, “One-Time SpongeBob Characters” and “Bikini Bottom Nature Watch” have all won this award previously, and cannot be nominated again.)

Honorary Staff Member
(Staff members who have had a profound impact on SBC can be nominated. Former staff can also be nominated for this award.)
(tvguy, jjs, CNF, Wumbo, Nuggets, JCM, Clappy, Patty Sponge, Cha, Fred, teenj and Katie have won this award previously, and cannot be nominated again.)

Honorary Member
(For ordinary members who you feel deserve special recognition, whether it be based on behavior, activity, or their contributions in general.)
(Current staff - jjs, JCM, Hawk, OWM, Trophy, sbl and Aquatic Konquest - cannot be nominated for this award. Cha, WhoBob, SOF, Hawk, sbl, Katniss, Steel and Ex have won this award previously, and cannot be nominated again.)

Honorary Skin
(To honor the artwork of our brilliant artists over the years by highlighting impactful forum themes.)
(Any skin, present or past, is eligible for nomination. Note that any skin with both a light and dark theme will be counted as the same.)

Everyone has until November 22nd to post their nominations in this thread, but as we always say, the sooner, the better. Let's get the ball rolling and Midas touch this community all the way up, y'all!
