Post 2008 Golden Item Awards Topic • Posted: Wed Jan 09, 2008 1:27 am
The 4th annual GIA is coming up, and I'm kind of stuck. See last year we had 5 awards, and I'm perfectly content with that. However we had an unforunate incident with the winners of the Golden Light Arrow, over the review, how it didn't capture the community spirit, poor grammar, etc.

Now I wrote the review at 3 in the morning, so I can understand the poor grammar. However, after taking the review down, it did get me thinking about the whole logicitics of the award. While I can evaluate the design, content and so forth of a site, I can't exactly evaluate the community. As such, any Golden Light Arrow I give will only stir up trouble from people thinking their community is better and so forth, which is EXACTLY what I'm trying to avoid.

So I'm ditching the Golden Light Arrow to be replaced by a new category. I honestly don't have any good ideas. Since the GIA's were originally created to award younger sites, I could have a "Future Consideration" award, but that's really close to the Golden Ocarina.

So, ideas?

best inter site community?

best interactive site ( for sites that let you do more than just read ramblings of someone and get game help)

best forum

most dedicated staff


best written content

those are just the first I thought up. you should name the new one "the golden hookshot award"

Most personable site, like people who post with character and flair. Not just bland straight to the point cookie cutter posts and content.

In other words, originality or creativity in presentation of content.

That's the best I can think of.

To prevent a war:
No popularity contests

I suggest we do something to commemorate the loss of those sites which have fallen. (ZeldaBlog and Maybe Ices' Zelda Central [let's face it. That site practically is done for. I've watched the forum for the last year or so, and it's near extinction.]). So, like...

Golden Poe Soul (Spirits of the Past)
Golden Gale Boomerang (Memories go away and come back, like a boomerang)

I have something else planned for sites that are now gone. Right now I have awards for uniqueness, aesthetics, aspiration and lifetime achivement. Surely there's one more topic out there. :P

Anyway, I just finished the new award templates. The ones I used last year were destroyed along with the rest of my files with the HD crash. So I figured this would be a good time to get some decent templates out.

Old Template:

And the new template:

sweet, but doesn't giving the award to yourself represent a conflict of interest?

Hehe I'm sure that's just an example if he were to put someone else that would give it away.

Ah that certainly is a big improvement DC, it seems more glorified, in a good way of course, the winner will certainly appreciate receiving it in its new form.

So it begins. I really don't know who's been camping this thing, but 5 minutes after I made the post I had FOUR nominations in my inbox.

That...is...AWESOME. That means, of course, that your awards mean something to quite a few people DC ; )

Sigh. Since I know nothing about computers, my site is, dare I say, a load of crap. But enough pity about me, :P , I say the Golden Magical Beans, for a great future site.

If it were me I’d have 5 awards that were possible to win and a special 6th to honor those truly large sites that have greatly contributed to the community but have passed on. because lets face it, if their dead they would have problems axcepting it wouldn't they :roll: since they couldn't receive it I’d go with something you can't get in the games, something like........ IDK the Poe's lantern or something?

And i want to know, why not a golden sword? i mean list one zelda game that a sword isn't in? you need a sword DC doesn't have to be the master sword, but just A sword

:mrgreen: i'll be up for the ocarina next year lol :roll:
