Idea- Instructables Awards

Everyone's posting ideas for instructables, so I thought I'd post one of my own- The Instructables Award. At the end of every year, the community will vote and pick winners for a category. There doesn't have to be a material prize. It could perhaps be some sort of badge, that is displayed on the winner's page ( example: Best something 2007)

The categories would be something like this:

  • Most productive
  • Most comments - (or the Goodhart award)
  • Most innovative
  • Most featured
  • Most helpful (GMiko could be...)
  • Most thoughtful...or something
  • Most commented
  • Most resourceful
  • Community member of the year (The kiteman award)
  • Most beloved (its a tight race between Ible Robot and Kiteman)
  • Most random (*cough*Cough*)
  • Most controversial
  • Rising star - New guy that's becoming popular
  • Random winner - no reason
  • Most fun
  • Most pyromaniac?
  • Most green
  • Best techie (techie of the year)
  • Best Artist (artist of the year)
  • Longest running member (nonstaff)
  • Best avatar?
  • Best comment (the single best comment of the year?)
  • Best forum topic

well? what do you think? Ideas for categories are welcome!

. Personally, I rather like the egalitarian society we have here. Why spoil it with calling some The Best/Most? . I do like the Most Helpful and Most Thoughtful categories, but, more than likely, the ppl who are the most helpful/thoughful aren't doing it for the recognition, but rather the personal satisfaction.

guess you're right......the people that help dont do it for recognition, so they really do deserve some.
. Good point. . "Out of the mouth of babes ..." ;)

uh...what?
. Holy Bible - Matthew 21:16 . KJV - "And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?"

babies?
. This is usually interpreted as something along the lines that the unspoiled innocence of children can produce insights and pearls of wisdom that a jaded old man, such as myself, don't see until it is pointed out to us. The part about "perfected praise" (ie, award) just seemed to make it that much more appropriate.
Keith-Kid (author)  NachoMahma9 years ago
no I know that. but I'm used to hearing babies and children. babes I interpret as beautiful women
. Sorry for the confusion. And I bet the word "gay" has a different meaning for you and I, too. ;)
If keith-kid does not believe you, here at this link are the lyrics to a very well know movie song where GAY meant "very happy"

just like pop ( is it Dad or is it soda LOL) .
