I prefer my technique.
2, not 3.

..

Although, mine were on purpose, as red herrings.

The poll is now closed!

The results of the poll were as follows:
- 30% (20) voted to split "Biggest Nerd" into "Most Socially Awkward" and "Most Painfully Intellectual"
- 24% (16) voted to keep the category as is
- 21% (14) said "other"
- 16% (11) voted to eliminate the category altogether
- 9% (6) had no opinion

Breakdown of "other":
- "Just give it to winneratlife", or something along those lines (10, making it alone the fourth most popular option)
- "You are just trying to get rid of it because you know it is you." (1, also lol)
- "Include all three to appease everyone" (1)
- "Most Likely To Be The >1M$ Starting Salary Going To Be Your Boss One Day" (1, also this is oddly specific and sort of long/wordy, so I'm shooting that down)
- "Seriously [my real name], this entire idea is ludicrous." (1, also thanks friend!)

Because the "split" contingent and "keep" contingent were roughly equal-ish (or at least popular enough), I'm making an Executive Decision and taking the suggestion of Other #3 to include all three categories. Hopefully this maximizes happiness.

Taking that into account, the categories are as follows:
- Best Assassinator
- Best Officer (on the assassinator games)
- Best Thread
- Biggest Grammar Nazi
- Biggest Nerd
- Biggest Procrastinator
- Clumsiest/Most Accident-Prone
- Funniest
- Future Dictator
- Future Mad Scientist
- Future Nationals Coordinator
- Future Nobel Prize Winner
- Least Likely to Have a Social Life
- Least Likely to Sleep, Period.
- Most Creative
- Most Dedicated
- Most Helpful
- Most Likely to Become a Teacher or Professor
- Most Likely to Sleep in Class
- Most Likely to Write a Novel
- Most Musical
- Most Original Username
- Most Painfully Intellectual
- Most Socially Awkward

Please PM your nominations (only one nomination per category, please) to me by 3 PM PDT of Friday, June 14th. That should give you guys enough time! I can't promise to make the poll right away because I have no idea what my plans are then, but I'll definitely make it that weekend.

...I hope I just answered your question!

Unless it makes everybody else VERY happy, it will not because it is decimating mine :( but you already knew that, that's why you made that decision :P Also, I confess that I voted to eliminate it 3 times, so actually it was 3rd most... fml.

Oh don't flatter yourself by thinking I only did it to displease you; it did seem like the best option. And good job confessing to skewing the poll... see, this is another reason I couldn't trust the results too much, making the "list ALL of the categories!" option the best.
