Underated

This award is for the user who may not be the funniest, may not be the smartest, may not be the prettiest, and may not be the social queen, but is certainly worth their weight in gold. Underrated users have snuck beneath the radar for too long, and now is the time to celebrate them.

The shortlist is:
Jzone
Marmaduke
Mestaris

And the winner is:
Another tie! Jzone and Mestaris!

Congratulations both, and here's to hoping you get the recognition you deserve.

Congratulations to all the winners, and thank you to those that decided to nominate me in categories I do not meet the qualifications for. Part of me will forever wonder if I should have voted for myself after all.

Mostly thank you to George for actually seeing this through.

Yay! Lots of my votes won out :D. Lots of them were difficult. Everybody is hot here! Kind of strange given that we are all internet nerds :lol:.

C'mon though, you all know Rene and Brenden do more for the boards than I do xP. Still, I appreciate the votes. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the spammers and sharers of personal information who make sure my job here is safe :lol:. May your Chinese merchandise links and desperate requests for somebody to sext you never die!
