|Subject Post 1Subject: 2020 Plot Of The Year Nominations Sun Jan 24, 2021 8:08 pm|| |
★ OTY VOTES ★
★ What the hell are OTY's? Well, my friend, that is pretty simple! Towards the end OR beginning of the year (depending on when staff can be assed!), we usually host Of The Year Nomination and Finals.
In this event, we go back from the past year of 2020 and attempt to pick out different types of finalist to compete for OTY Finals from the nomination list. These can range from Thread Of The Year, Character Of The Year and etc.
So, in this thread, you'll be tasked with picking whom you think deserves the OTY by nominating them. Please try to avoid nominating the same person/thread/character if they have already been nominated. Please.
★ OTY RULES★
You can only vote for one member!★
Make sure to state the name of the person you are nominating★
This contest has a week before it will be closed by a staff member.★
Try to think about your vote a little before aimlessly casting it.★
If someone is already nominated, try to nominate someone else.★
DO NOT NOMINATE YOURSELF
★ OTY PRIZES ★
The person who wins first place in this "of the Year" will receive one wish of their choosing by staff. We have full rights to deny it, so find something within reason. This can be anything from a board made tier upgrade for a character, skill upgrade or whatever. The catch is that you'll have to pitch it well enough for us to do it. ★Second Place:
The person who wins runner up will get an honorary mention in the Of The Years/Winners ★Third Place:
The person who comes in 3rd will get an honorary mention.

There were a lot of good plots in 2020, so many that for a little bit I actually had a lot of trouble thinking of how to even nominate one. But then I ran the numbers, I looked at the data, and I came to one very important conclusion:
The sheer volume of incredible writing that came with the Gotei's nobility storylines, and the reforms in the Soul Society, was fucking unmatched in maybe the entirety of the time I have been on this site.
A huge amount of the site's members were directly involved with it, and it wasn't simply a singular plot thread. Everyone engaged with the narrative in the ways they personally wanted to, whether it was something as intimate as Rio and Hakuyou's romance, or as brutally frank as Ulv teaching Julian how to stop being a sadboy. So many storylines that might otherwise never have garnered much attention were suddenly all weaved together into a singular narrative. We were all genuinely excited for every post that happened in nearly every thread, and I think something like that isn't just impressive, I think that's the very spirit of what RP should be.
There are a lot of people who were involved in that plot, so I don't know how feasible it would even be to give out a wish if this won. But, at the same time, I think it would be unfair to all the people who put so much effort in to deny them what I think is a deserved win.
