I'm sure this post will probably get the brunt of bad comments and most likely end up getting locked, sent to the sewers, or just outright deleted, but I eel it needs to be said;
I have only been active here this past year or so, with a little bit from the end of last year, so, I can not say this is how it has always been, but I see the same people getting nominated for just about everything, both this year and last, and I'm sure if I found and perused through past nominations, I would find the same to be in true in past years. By no means do I think I am deserving of outright winning half of the categories; my mapping is not the best, scripting skills are about mediocre, some of my ideas don't even come close to others (I'm looking at Luvia Tales here... =P ), but, it would be nice to see some of us little people at least nominated for something here or there, or hell, make a new category for 'members that show potential in a game idea' or something that sounds alot better than that, since I just kinda came up with it while typing. Or, what about just an informal recognition of those who have contributed to the site in a significant way? Normally I'm not one to make a fuss about such things, but, I can say I got one acknowledgement by Roph for donating to the site which (depending on where you're hosted Roph) should have been enough to cover a month, if not two, of RMRK staying alive. It's cool acus my names all pink and stuff now, so, that neat, and I like the fact that I may have helped the site in a more relevant way than my scripts ever could, but, I dunno, I just feel like it's all of the people in "the club" that are being nominated, when some others could be as well (and no, this doesn't just refer to me, there's a couple others I have yet to see whom have impressed me over the years), and before anyone says it, yeah, I know I can go ahead and nominate them myself, and I will, either tonight or tomorrow morning, but I just thought it was a valid point to bring up (also, I just read through the 'most mature member' nominations, and that may have prompted me to handle this in a mature manner and bring it up as an issue, as an adult would, instead of moping and yelling about it in secret boards or something).
That's all, you can commence with the commentary =p
