SciOly Superlatives 2016

Post by Unome » June 6th, 2016, 7:42 am

Since Kokonilly has basically disappeared from the forums, I guess I'm left to revive this. For those of you who don't know what this is, basically it's a (mostly) annual occurrence where people nominate people for different categories, and then vote on them, same as is done in most schools. You can see the previous years' threads here: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014. The categories, copypasted from previous years, 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
- Best Administrator*

* Added at the request of our glorious dictators. Nominations accepted (included in the form).

Nominations can be submitted here (hopefully the link works). Nominations end at 8 AM Eastern time (Daylight savings, etc, whatever it is right now) on Thursday, June 9th.

Hopefully there'll be some participation even though this hasn't been around for a while.

Future Nobel Prize Winner
Most Likely to Become a Teacher or Professor
Most Likely to Sleep in Class
Most Likely to Write a Novel

Categories with less than three nominations (i.e. not enough):
Best Officer
Biggest Grammar Nazi

Clumsiest/Most Accident-Prone
Future Dictator
Future Mad Scientist
Least Likely to Have a Social Life (lol winneratlife is the only one)
Most Creative
Most Musical
Most Original Username
Most Socially Awkward

Note: this doesn't mean that you shouldn't submit more nominations to the other categories too.

Just saying, Illinois 2014 is clearly the only option for Best Thread.
