Welcome to the Final Voting Round of the Golden Key Awards 2014



The Golden Key Awards are a way to celebrate, and to show honor to those who have a unique and outstanding personality; great dedicated users; whether knowledgeable, artistic, active, or kind; who deserve to be honored in the entire forum.

In 2011, we were known as the Golden Rupee Awards, in celebration of Zelda Dungeon's 10th Anniversary. In 2012, the Golden Rupee Awards was replaced by the Golden Key Awards. Now, we are hosting an Awards Contest once again, in order for this to become a tradition and to promote fellowship in our forum!

Dedication

In the words of K4KING: "The GKA, rather the GRAs, The Golden Rupee Awards was started by TreeHuggerPanda. The idea came from a Shoutbox Conversation. She wanted to celebrate ZD's 10 anniversary through a way of awarding. Everyone liked the idea and many users banded together to start the first one. As soon as the GRAs ended, she left it to me, K4KING to handle it, when in fact, I left it to the People I know who can do an even better job than me. TreeHuggerPanda, Po, Ms. Pandamonium, Thank you. I dedicate this, and all succeeding events to you."

This year the Event Staff asked forum members for advice on how the event should be setup and organized. The new categories seen below are taken from the suggestions we acquired. We appreciate everyone's advice in the suggestions thread.

It's here, everybody! The moment you've been waiting for! The results from the nomination round are (finally) in, your votes have been counted and here are the final nominees. Now all that remains is for the members of the Dungeon Gaming Network Forums to vote on who they think should win each category in this year's Golden Key Awards. We have collected the top three members in each category (or more depending on ties), now it is up to you guys to decide the overall winners!​

Voting Rules
1. You cannot vote yourself. If you do, your vote will be ignored.
2. You can only vote for the same member two times in different categories.
3. A member can win a maximum of two awards. If a user wins more than two, they will be allowed to decide which award(s) to give to keep in their desired category.
4. You cannot ask friends to vote for you. Votes must not be biased or unfair, so try to be as impartial as possible.
5. You can withhold your vote for certain categories. It's entirely up to you which categories you actually vote people for.
6. You may only vote for one person per category.
7. You can only post ONCE in the voting thread, excluding event staff. You may edit your votes before the thread is locked. Don't post asking questions, see rule 8.
8. Only post votes in this thread. Please send your messages to the following Event Staff via PM or VM:

Forgive me for leaving out so many categories, there's a lot I don't believe I'm able to fairly vote on, or don't want to. Congratulations to Yourasswillhurt for winning Best Username already, and Violet for winning Most Thoughtful.

I'd like to be removed from "Best Advice" please. I believe the others nominated are a better fitted for the award. Sorry about that, thanks for acknowledgment though.

Before I start voting, I would like to say that I have appeared in six different categories for this year's GKAs. This doesn't seem fair to others especially since I have the most appearance in the GKAs in general category-wise. I'm not sure if it was always like this, but if so then all I ask is that should a person vote for me, please only vote for me in just two of the categories to even things out. I will edit this post to have my votes soon.

This has been taken into account by the rule limiting the number of categories a person can be voted for to two.

I'll edit this later with my actual thoughts but what happened to the Judge's Award?
Perhaps we should have been clearer about this; as the name implies, the final winner is chosen by the "judges", or the event staff.
