I had an Idea, and I was just wondering what every one was thinking.
BikerBot and me were having a chat a while ago and he was asking about the heromorph awards and when they were going to be held again. Originally I had planned to make them a yearly event but I am open to making changes. He (BB) suggested that we made the awards every six months or so. At the time I suggested, that we leave the Heromorph awards (the Morphy's) an annual event and have a second set of awards let an artist choice awards (or something) half way threw the year.
I have been thinking a little bit about the site lately and with its uncertain future maybe we should hold the awards on a semi-annual basis because the site might not be here next year.
Not only that, but the Heromorph gallery has had 753 submissions since Jan 1/04, and that does not even include the adult gallery.
Anyway, This post is just chiming in to see what every one else thinks about this idea.

I h8 2 admit but I'm afraid BBot has come up witha good idea (how that happened I'll never know)

For the reasons you cite I think we should bo semi-annual..hell anything that stimul8's more people to submit good work is justific8n enough.

There's my 4cents (keep the change)

No, we shouldn't have the Heromorph awards bi-anually because then they lose their integrity and you'll end up having them whenever someone is bored of making Roswell Porn jokes.

But we do need another awards show! I suggest....(dadadadadadaddadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)
THE DODGE AND BURNS

These would be basically the same but we could vary the categories a bit.
I suggest the following categories:
Hot stuff! (best chick art)
Yeah, good technique (best guy art)
My keyboard needs cleaning (most erotic art)
Bandwidth Buster (most prolific artist)
I don't have any moves yet (best beginner)
Best Furious Max (how did that get in there?)
What are you, a comedian? (best humor pic)
So good I made it my wall paper (just really really good)

You'll note that I used the word 'art' instead of 'manip'. That way we don't need to double up on every category while still including everyone.

And we can have some other categories that allow non-artists to have a chance (but not excluding artists):
The No Comment Award (most *interesting* request)
Best Artist Supporting (best encouragement)
Wish I'd said that (best comment or forum entry)
What would we do without you? (outstanding personality)

Let's make this round fun and not have all the tears and emotional outbursts we had last time. You can all start voting for me now.

Don't make me roll up a newspaper...

Just remember, I can Manip you at any time, and into anything I want.
Bwahahahaha!!!

Now then:
>...THE DODGE AND BURNS
Works for me. (surprised, hunh?)

>These would be basically the same but we could vary the categories a bit.
>I suggest the following categories:
>Hot stuff! (best chick art)
Needs to be more defined, and needs two versions (Regular Gallery and Adult) but yeah.

>Yeah, good technique (best guy art)
>My keyboard needs cleaning (most erotic art)
What's the difference between this and "Hot Stuff!"? That needs to be defined.

>Bandwidth Buster (most prolific artist)
for this to be fair, it has to include all artists, even Sir Blabalot. Since this will also require some work, I recommend this be a self-nominated category.
Unless you feel like doing all the review work...

I also recommend a comic relief category:
Most Prolific Poster Of Other People's Work


>I don't have any moves yet (best beginner)
How do you define this? I think it's a great idea, but what counts as a beginner? For instance, Sir Blab is a beginner and will probably be one for a while, but Grimey was a beginner, and his stuff currently rocks! So, please define.

>Best Furious Max (how did that get in there?)
I don't think you can win this one, dude.

>What are you, a comedian? (best humor pic)
Great Idea!! Both Galleries, or communal?

>So good I made it my wall paper (just really really good)
Sound too ambiguous. Winterhawk, what were the categories from last time? I think this was pretty well covered.

I would like to see one more category:
Best First Manip
(I recon this may be the only one I have a good shot at.)

>The No Comment Award (most *interesting* request)
Please, elaborate. How does this work? (Oh, I hope it has nothing to do with RP or farting...)

>Best Artist Supporting (best encouragement)
and Best Non-Artist Supporting. Three guesses who would win _that_ category...

>Wish I'd said that (best comment or forum entry)
Who chooses? Other than that, I am intrigued, to say the least.

>What would we do without you? (outstanding personality)
Again, who chooses? But great category idea.

>Let's make this round fun and not have all the tears and emotional outbursts we had last time.
Do you enjoy living in that dream world of yours?

>You can all start voting for me now.
Sorry, man, Kallisti is my choice for "Best Furious Max". Nothing personal...

SO basically you guys like my original suggestion to BB of having a second set of awards then (like artist's choice or Max's "The dodge and burns", good name btw Max).
What does everyone else think?
Should we make this second round of awards less serious then the first? Have stuff like the "Laughed my ass off award" for the most comedic gallery entry, and stuff like that.
I think that if we are going to do different awards show we should have the categories completely different and leave the more technical "best of" for the Annual Heromorph Awards (morphy's) and have the more "fun" awards for this one.
What does EVERYONE think about this idea?
Artists and non-artists please speak up; let us know what you are thinking about this? What would you like to see done? Do you hate awards? Do you have any possible categories? Do you tie your girlfriend up and spank her with a ping-pong paddle? Inquiring minds want to know.

To clarify - I would like to see the regular and adult galleries treated equally as the pics are only placed in the adult gallery to keep sensitive eyes away.

I would like to see 2 or 3 'general' categories because most of the manips are female characters and many deserve to win.

Beginners should be those who have started using the software. E.g. Grimey and myself had both used art software before so we don't count.

And I think nominations for all categories can be made by anyone (including the artist themselves) and decided by vote, just like last time.

Kallisti is going to take 'Best Furious Max' <I>again?!</I>
I'm gonna whack him in the knee with a baseball bat, then I can't lose...

These new awards seems interesting, but I don't know... the pics that are going to be nominated in this new awards, can be nominated in the annual awards?, if that's so, don't you think that the people are going to be less interest in voting?

And I think most of the categories are going to be the same in both awards (the begginers award is great idea).

is this going to be like the MTV manip awards rather than the Acadamy manip awards?

what about the "least amount of work" award?

Well, unless you can nominate an artist who has posted one Manip and then had it removed, it's gonna be pretty hard to beat all the zer0's around here...

what i meant was an award for a manip (a good one) that required the least amount of work, for instance lets say someone had a base of a girl in a blue bikini and added a superman symbol.

hopefully anyone who wins would take it in good humor.

if it's still a dumb idea maybe we could have an award for "dumbest idea for an award"?

Well 6 people are interested, all artists.

Given the lack of interest I suggest we sideline the 'Dodge and Burns' for a while - unless some more people want to give their opinions?*
We would also need a moderator's commitment to help set up the polls for voting and we haven't heard from any of them.

Anyway we're all winners because we take part in something enjoyable that really gives back to the community**.
As The Sphinx said: "We are number 1! All others are number 2, or lower."

Furious Max

* That's opinions on awards, not your opinions on Roswell Porn, farting, yoghurt manips or wrinkles.
** Unfortunately the community didn't really <I>want</I> Roswell Porn, farting, yoghurt manips or wrinkles.

Well. What's up people are we going to do something or not.

I would definitely enjoy another set of Awards... two reasons why.....
#1.... I asked and got rejected (nicely) at last years awards......
#2.... I would like to think I can run for some myself...... I've shown improvement, from the critique given by many.........
and actually
#3 There are many more people on this site now....then there was at the time of the 1st "ANNUAL" awards...... so a big....
HELL YEAH from Se7en!!!!!!!!!

Although suport seems weak, I had less for the original awards when I started them.

Coming Soon- The Dodge And Burn Awards

Watch for a new thread, coming to a forum near you.

Thanks again to Max for the name, and Bikerbot for the idea

as a newbie who wasn't around for the last HeroMorph awards thing, i'd like to ask who votes for the Morphy's? is it decided by administrators/moderators, or is it an open vote. i like the idea of the "other" awards being decided by public vote, especially if the main awards are decided by a set of specific judges.

that said, i think this is a great idea. also, i don't think it matters if a particular piece of work gets awards during both show. what's so bad about winning more than one award? if a manip wins multiple awards, it must deserve it. i see people walk away with multiple oscars every year....

I really want to stress that these awards are going to be different then the annual Heromorph awards.
The Dodge and Burn awards are going to have completely different categories, completely different eligibility qualifications, and a different nomination process. I have been working on hammering out the details with someone else, for a while now. The big announcement is planned for the august 9th. You will find out all the rules and other details then.
