Thank you! While I'd like to be considered for "great accomplishments in bridge outside of BBO" :lol: :D I can't ethically accept the award for New Poster. I posted here under a different username many years ago. (Inquiry seemed to be the most frequent poster at the time.) I tried to log on to these forums using my old username and it didn't work for several days, so I just created a new account. My old account was anything but polite, in fact I might be voted for "most improved poster" by anyone who remembers my old posting style. But, it's nice to post here and not be despised by a few of the other posters, so I think it's probably best to let that old username remain in the dustbin.



I'd be curious what your original user ID was...

She already explained why she is posting under an alias, and frankly she didn't have to. I'm perfectly happy with her as Kaitlyn, and she's got my vote for newbie helper of the year. You really have to leave aside the water cooler.

Maybe put the request in the General Forum? I'll bet most people don't even look here because they always see BBF vs JEC or BBF Challenge as the most recent post.

I think you are also nominated for most helpful, right Helene? If not then you certainly should be!

Only one peer has voted so far. Is that true? If you have voted but not received a notification from me, please tell me.

Looking forward to seeing the results, assuming somebody besides me voted :)

I was looking to see if the results were posted anywhere by searching for Posty. It appears that there is a Posty competition every year but winners have not been posted since 2012. Am I missing something?

I was hoping nobody would bring this up :/

The thing is that only two people voted and nobody got more than one vote in any category. Maybe I should publish the votes as promised but it doesn't really feel right to award a "price" on the basis of a single vote.

Part of the issue here was lack of attention during the year. It's very easy to simply forget about threads that are 6-8-10 months old. In the past, we had some very involved threads that were easy to remember but not so much anymore.

In 2017, let's try to use hash tags or some other tracking mechanism so that we can recall them easier in December.

That's why most Oscars go to movies that were released in December, they're still fresh in the voters' minds.
