We welcome back this annual event for a third year and as always we encourage participation from all our forum's members with both voting and nominating.
MangaHelpers Community Awards is an annual event included in MangaHelpers birthday celebration. The awards given here are dedicated as appreciation to members of MangaHelpers who have helped in building MangaHelpers into what it is today.
MangaHelpers Community Awards will be done in form of polling and will have various categories. All categories, however, will generally follow the system described below.
Prizes given to you if you win the polling:
- The winner (the first place; member with highest number of votes) will receive an award and will be given a custom user title based on the category he/she wins.
You are allowed to nominate through private message (PM) too if you are shy to share your vote with the public. Feel free to send me, goldb, or naruto-niichan a message about your nominations. The rules are still the same: you can only nominate for three members for each category. You can't send us another nomination PM if you have made three nominations at the thread publicly.
During the first round voting is publicly open (the votes are visible), for the subsequent rounds (second and final round) they are private. The votes for these can be seen after the polls have been closed.
What is a campaign?
In this event, you are allowed to campaign for yourself. You are allowed to encourage other members to nominate for you during the nomination round or to vote for you during the voting round. However, there are certain things to note for this process.
- All campaigns must be done publicly at MangaHelpers website. You are not allowed to campaign via PM or external websites.
- You are allowed to campaign for yourself at your own thread and category threads. Campaign-related posts at Fun Forum is allowed, but it is not allowed at other sections (non-spam sections), especially series discussion sections.
- The method of campaigning should still follow the forum rules and etiquette.
What categories are available for MangaHelpers Community Awards 2013?
This year we offer 24 categories for members and staff to compete in. They are divided based on permissions of which member groups may join which categories. It is fully described as following:
Please refer to each category's thread to get a detailed explanation of what the category is about, who may participate, and specific updates of the categories.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask it to us by replying on this thread.
Remember that the Forum Rules and general etiquette applies in the event. Violation of the Forum Rules can lead to disqualification and disallowance to participate in the event.
Enjoy the awards and have fun!

could you guys next year maybe do....
more awards and less confusion...a win win
They're separated the way they are for a reason. The ones that only non-staffers are eligible for (Part A) are categories that are either redundant to the staff-only categories, or things we reasonably expect of a staff-member (being contributive, friendly, passionate, maybe even "epic", and mysterious doesn't work, because staffers might know more about each other than regular members would). Everything else is open to everyone (Part B).

And just to remind everyone who has nominated yet or not, you get THREE nominations per category. It's not a requirement obviously, but just wanted to remind you guys.
why is there no "best troll" award?....
The Nomination Round is over, Voting Round 1 will start on October 15th, thanks for your participation.
Why isn't anyone campaigning?
Anyway, here's my little ad; so, show some support and wear it:
Bob awesome Sig~~~~~~~~~! <3
I thought of campaigning for Faust..... but his.... category.....
This is over 2 years old, but guys please remember, if you don't vote for the obvious choice, you know what will happen, and it will be done with a smile ^_^ <3
That's one of the worst posters I've ever seen. You shouldn't ever get any vote just for that.
Break for campaign has ended!
Thank you very much for your participation.
The status of all categories is now voting round 1.
During this round, you can vote for maximum FOUR names at once. This first round will be open, which means you can see who voted for who and how many votes each nominee has, starting from the second round the votes will be hidden though to make things more suspenseful~
You can still campaign for yourself too. All campaigns must be done publicly at your own thread, the category thread you are nominated in, or Fun Forum but not series discussion areas.
Refer to the OP for information about voting and deadline. Alternatively, please contact myself, niichan, xi0 or any of the moderators with powers in this section, if you have questions.
The first voting round will end on October 19, 2013 at approximately 6 PM (timezone: GMT+1).
