2017 SOCKY AWARDS

As the year approaches its end, it's about that time to determine who will be adding those delicious, wonderful Socky Awards to their trophy cases. It has been an eventful, active, at times challenging, and always fun year of Mafia on The Syndicate, and we're excited to celebrate it with another awards ceremony. :biggrin:

A team of Official Socky Awards Overseers, Administrators, and Thing Doers (OSAOATD) has been working together over the last month or so to decide what awards will be up for grabs this year. I have compiled them all and will share them with you in the following post. In this post, I will provide you with rules for placing your votes. Please read each award carefully, because there might be minor exceptions.

Voting Guidelines

~ You are eligible to vote in these Socky awards if you played in or hosted at least one of the eligible games listed in the spoiler at the bottom of this post.

~ You may place TWO votes in each category, though it is not required. There will still be only one winner named (barring unique tie scenarios); this allows for more people to be recognized.

~ All votes must be sent privately to this Sockys2017 account to count. Link

~ You are not required to vote in every category.

~ Voting will be open for about the next three weeks, with a hard deadline presently set for Friday the 19th of January at 11:59pm eastern US time.

~ You are allowed to discuss your votes in this thread or campaign if you so desire. Remember though that some element of surprise makes it more fun. :nicenod:

~ You are permitted to vote for yourself if you so desire.

If you have any questions, direct them to JaggedJimmyJay, juliets, G-Man, sprityo, DrWilgy, Long Con, or Dragon D. Luffy.

The Lifetime Achievement Award
*Official award name pending review

This is a special new award we are introducing this year. This can be viewed as a sort of "Hall of Fame" induction, not to be confused with the Hall of Fame forum on this site where we keep statistical track of each game and player. This award does not refer only to 2017 game play. It refers to the entire body of work (referring specifically to their Mafia play and/or hosting) for a player's time on this website from the day they registered.

Not everyone is eligible to be inducted this year. This will function similarly to an athletic Hall of Fame, like those seen for professional sports. This year, only players who joined The Syndicate in the year 2013 or earlier are considered to be eligible for a Lifetime Achievement Award. If this award continues for next year's awards, the year of eligibility would move forward to 2014.

This link directs to the member list, ordered by date of registration. Eligible players continue into page 6.

You may vote for three players here, and three players will be inducted. In the event of ties, the Socky Awards team will convene to come to a solution.

Everyone is eligible to vote for this award, including those who are not eligible to receive it.

You may vote for any of these quotes, but you are not restricted to them. You may vote for any quotes made on the site during the year 2017. I recommend that you share your preferred quotes during the voting stages so that other voters might have an opportunity to remember them.

I also submitted this one for you at the start of the year:

Dear diary,

So. Crazy thing happened.

After I arrived I got separated from the group. I didn't know where anybody was! At first I panicked and then I realized I didn't have my inhaler with me, so I did my best to calm down. I thought it would be good to use the stars to navigate with, but it was daytime, and those wouldn't be coming out for a while. I wondered about that thing where moss only grows on one side of a tree or something, but I guess I'm not really good recognizing plants. Then I realized I hadn't applied any sunblock, so I decided to just move in one direction and see if I could find my way just using the old noodle.

Well anyway I passed through a clearing and found myself in the presence of this gorilla. It was beating its chest and making such a fuss! I was like, "Who whizzed on his bananas in his Corn Flakes this morning?" you know? Man, I thought I was in trouble. I said to myself, "Boy, you're in such a pickle, you might not even say you're in a pickle. You're in the relish." I mean, it looked that bad for me.

Then someone called my name and I looked around and there everybody was! They were just going on about their business! So I tried to find out why everybody was so calm with this angry, violent gorilla in their presence. They said, "What gorilla?"

You're gonna laugh when you hear this. That wasn't a gorilla. It was just DharmaHelper, another contestant here. Boy, he sure had me worried! He didn't even have a suit or mask on or anything. Wowee.

If the producers have anything like my arrival in store, I'd better watch out!

XOXO
-Me

okay, imofficially like, blitzed outta my mind so my brain would only allow me to do some skimming.... PLEASE I BEG OF YOU, GIVE ME THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT and at least allow me to read it with a fresh non tainted mentality.... However, I want to comment on a few things...

1 - Crazy cake lady, I'm absolutely obsessed with your avatar...

2 - Not too sure how I feel about Epiklsflaflgadfjlghfg (i can't spell) but the first few pages I was actually thinking questioning how one could be so confident on a players alignment. I was totally imaging some big buff he man like dude walking up and being like HEY, THESE TWO FUCKERS ARE GOOOOD ARRRRRRRRR I NO VOTE THEM, ARRR and while I feel intimidated into wanting to believe them... honey, i don't know you and you don't know me... at least take me on a date once before you try and assert your dominance

3 - The irony in this all is Long Cons - he's in it for the long run comment, which is ironic as shit given his name is Long con. However I see the hypothesis going a little too far with the Crazy Cake Lady.
First of all, I am not bad, I am merely an ex junky(well, depends what your definition of a junky is) who still smokes a fuck ton but I must say I can weed out(no pun intended) that baddies at some point in the game before all else goes to shit. I'm not going to say what they were doing was exactly pre flip associations but from the point that caught my eye it really seemed like they were already trying to plant some - if this, they must be that - seeds... which can actually be taken both ways... I may be discussing this like it's a bad thing but I'm not ready to disclose how I really feel about this player yet...

4- Kyle seems to be a little bit of a shit poster (sorry my dear friend) which from my 1 hosting game experience, I would expect tons of effort if they were scum... given i gave him a scum card and he tried his hardest with no shit post tier plays! so Kyle, let's be good friends and whip up a mountain of a storm together eh?

My thought process is kinda scattered at the moment... feel free to tell me I'm absolutely dumb as a bag of bricks.... but honestly I'm more better when I am active and having a run on conversation as opposed to just popping in and saying my peace... I will be around for a bit... lets chat!

A mechanic in INH's Blue Velvet mafia that let people leave their old team and form a new one. I figured out how to use it to break INH's game a bit and give me and nutella and Long Con the win.

Votes are pouring in nicely, but we have SO many ties. New voters, the task is yours to break them!

Not to brag or campaign for any specific awards or anything, but I had trouble voting in the "Best Mafia" categories because town won so many of the games that I played in this year. :mafia:

Nor I, but I thought that I'd mention that out of the three non-mafia (lms/lts) games we had this year (Survivor, Elemental and CC123, I won two of them and came runner up in the third. :noble:

I tried voting for you to win an award but apparently someone used an idol on you.

In all seriousness I don't usually vote for these but this year I did because

A) I have to vote for the new Lifetime Awards or w/e they end up being called so I can give props to some great players.

B) Survivor Mafia was the best game I've ever played and every game should look to Survivor mafia. The future of mafia is in LMS/Roleplaying/Skill Contest style games.

Honestly I kinda agree. To an extent.

Though I'm not sure I'd call it mafia.

Best Role Use -- Which individual player do you feel used the mechanics of their role the most effectively or in the most entertaining way during a game in 2017? Define this however you like.
I'm just gonna say Mutiny for 3 and leave it at that. Vote however you see fit. Mutiny for 3.
Omg I forgot about that :haha:
