The OtakuBoards Nifty Fifty of 2005 (Final)


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

It?s been an exciting few weeks here in the events forum, as OB?s best and brightest have been honored in the Nifty Fifty Nominations Thread. Thanks to the members who participated we were given a large listing of members, threads and forums to choose from and compile our final listing. Some of you may be curious about how the final listing is created, so let me explain that now:

[list][*]Members nominate nifty things in the nomination thread.
[*]From those nominations contained within the thread, members of the Nifty Fifty Committee choose and select individual listings of 50 and send them to myself.
[*]From the various lists I receive, the 50 items which receive the most nominations from committee members are put onto the final list.[/list]

So who was a part of this committee? Well, I?d like to personally thank Athena, Bombu, Retribution, Delta, Hittokiri Zero, Mimminx, Chabichou and Dee for all of their hard work and effort. Without [b]Retribution[/b] and [b]Delta[/b] in particular, these results may never have seen the light of day, or been nearly as sexy as they are now.

Anyway, just looking at this thread you?ll see how much the site and it?s membership have grown and evolved in the past year. If nothing else this is a snapshot at a specific moment of time on the boards, showing you the people and things that made it such an awesome 365 days.

And now, in no particular order...

[b]The OFFICAL OtakuBoards Graphic Tournament[/b]

"Yeah, that's right, folks, the first offical graphics tournament. Nifty, no? It was very much a success too, and it really brought some life to the seeminglessly dead Art Studio. I believe the idea was brought up by Retribution? It was lootking a bit bleak from the start, but Dagger held the entire thing togher and the show continued! Making Dagger nifty in the process too."[/center]

[b]OtakuBoards: Enter the Net[/b]

"The original uber parody that started them all, for the most part, heh. Not only is EtN a well-written account of the changes, fads, catchphrases and lovely people on OtakuBoards, it's just fun to read and leaves you begging for more. Shame it's to end soon. A damn shame."[/center]

[b]Ozymandius Jones[/b]

"An Oldie who?s been around as long as I have has seen more than a few Moderators pass through the Square, from the original dynamic due of Flash and Warlock, to Shy, to The Harlequin, to Arcadia and Terra, and now finally the mantel has fallen to Sarah. I?ve always had great respect for the Arena?s moderators, and Sarah is no different, so you can only imagine how utterly gob-smacked I was when I saw a sign up from her in one of my previous Star Wars RPGs. She like Jamie proves that there are indeed female Star Wars fans out there, and just as Alex may be the wisecracking yet good hearted Han Solo, Sarah is the fiercely determined Princess Leia, with perhaps myself as the aged Obi-Wan. My rambling aside, I really am grateful to have made such a great new acquaintance."[/center]

[b]Nomad Tical[/b]

"Like other people, I see fit to nominate him. He is one of the most dedicated people at OB Anthology, and he always tries to encourage and give some sort of feedback to every author. Every time I see "Last post: Nomad Tical" I'm filled with hope that he might start a trend."[/center]

[right][i]- Lady Asphyxia[/i][/right]

[center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/athena.jpg[/img]

"Her newest username is the perfect one for my dear sister, as undoubtedly Annie is one of the wisest people I have ever had the pleasure of calling my friend. While it has been far too long since we?ve had the pleasure of sharing each other?s company in an RPG, I know from personal experience that Annie is one of the most talented role-players to ever set foot in the Arena and I am a better writer for having known her. Whether it be just chilling and chatting on AIM or brainstorming on ideas for new Square RPGs, sweet-pea has really been the best big sister I could ever hope to have."[/center]

[b]Guild Wars / QKT[/b]

"The QKT, OB's official Guild Wars guild, is one of the best Otaku-related things to happen to me in a long time. Even better than -- dare I say it? -- becoming a Site Administrator here. Guild Wars is an awesome game that I've spent over 1,000 hours playing, and being in a guild with a bunch of friends from OtakuBoards here has made it even better. For me, there's just nothing else like gaming with friends.?[/center]

[right][i]- Desbreko[/i][/right]

[center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/brasil.jpg[/img]

"Although our relationship is fraught with fighting and tension, at times I feel we put that all behind us and choose to be friends rather than enemies, or even "friendly enemies" I suppose, to be oxymoronic. I still can't stand Alex on some levels, as I'm sure he can't stand me on some levels, but I respect him. He's a brilliant man who continues to brace these boards, saying things when people are too uninvasive to say them. He's also a master of rhetoric in some facet, and would make a good politician! But hey, what's not to love (because love in essence has to contain hate, as well). I kid! I kid!?[/center]

[b]Meestah Alan (DeadSeraphim)[/b]

?One of the coolest guys I know, who's presently IMing me, with Raina looking over his shoulder. I've got to watch my tongue! Alan is the creator of n00b Hunter on OB, but not only that, he's the most bad-*** cross-dresser you'll ever meet. He could kick my butt, even when he's wearing a pair of stockings and the butt-kicking wouldn't seem any less horribly masculine. Alan is nifty to the extreme. Congrats Raina on nabbing such a nifty guy!?[/center]

?Alex amazes me, and I look up to the pride he takes in his art and his passion for graphic design. He gave true life to the Art Studio, and made brought along many great ideas. Such as: The Banner/Avatar Orphanage, The GFX Club, Graphics Class, The small but enjoyable Last-Man-Standing competition, and uhh... Well, his wonderful personal art thread. (Were there some I missed?) He also went out of his way to give as much possible critique to all of our member's designs, and yet harsh at times, he was only trying to help the member to improve their skills and abilities. I often find it difficult to actually comment on his pieces because they're just that bizarre, and too artisy for me to comprehend. Good heavens, what a guy.?[/center]

?Many people have mentioned this great guy and I'm not surprised. He's one of the greatest people on OB. He always has an open ear for a problem, no matter what's going on in his life. He's also always eager to help in whatever I need help with RPG-wise and I don't think I'd be able to stay on OB if he wasn't here.?[/center]

?Okay, I'll admit- I'm a former DW hater and envier. I'll admit that... But, coming to that realization has changed my opinion of him profoundly. This guy has amazing comedic talent. Reading his post on Hero Patrol had me laughing... gut laughing. I can't remember the last time I was laughing so honestly from a post on OB. He started the whole Pirate thing before I even joined OB. He taught me how to use some Photoshop (shamelessplug]you can see some of my artwork in the art forum /shamlessplug]) He has been always polite to me when speaking on AIM. This guy really is nifty.?[/center]

??Interesting, most interesting.?

Need I say more?

Okay, I will anyway. This dude is one of the nicest, most respectful members on the boards. He's understanding a respects other people's opinions and never puts people down. And he's Irish! How nifty can you get?

Way to go Gavin!?[/center]

[center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/shy.jpg[/img]

?Despite his busy schedule, Shy has continued to create new events on OtakuBoards. When I asked for more regular events, he gave them to me! And I'm very happy about that, especially given the tremendous scale of threads like The Legionnaires. I love Shy's creative writing and I think he's one of the most creative minds we have here at OtakuBoards. I really look forward to seeing where he takes our events in the future.?[/center]

?I don?t talk to her, but I do read up on her myO, and on theOtaku.com, and she?s just wonderful. From what I read, Panda does have more on her hands than what we are let on; yet, she still makes time to moderate, update theOtaku, and write out very enthusiastic myO posts--despite her sickness. Never have I seen Panda show any sort of anger in her modding posts; she?s always very pleasant and informative. It takes a great deal of patience and tolerance to mod the O.Lounge without snapping, and she handles it with ease. Just an amazing woman ^_^?[/center]

?Because he rawks more than Rawk Hawk. And that's a lot of rawk, let me tell you. He's also more punk rawk than Avril Lavigne, as unbelievable and shocking as that may sound. Furthermore, I have it on good authority that he, not The Scorpions, will rock you like a hurricane.?[/center]

?This has been the most fun I have had RPing in a long while, and Shy keeps us all interested with as many twists and turns as possible. He has the ability to see when certain posting styles are not working, and change them, to keep the RP flowing. There was a slight lull just before Body Bags began, but then the pace picked right back up. I can't really see this not making the Fifty.?[/center]

?I've never had to work so hard at an RPG ever, and I think it's a credit to Sandy that he can organize something so huge without letting it fall. He was away from the 'Boards for over two weeks and still managed to keep it running because of the amounts of ingenuity he's pumped into it. I think more RPGs should be made that really force you to challenge your own writing quality- it makes playing that much more exciting.?[/center]

[right][i]- Solo Tremaine[/i][/right]

[center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/sakura.jpg[/img]

?Sakura sort of appeared on the Boards very quietly a few years back, but I'd safely say that she's one of the best role-players around- dedicated to everything she takes part in and a good writer to boot. Without her, it's almost not an RPG.?[/center]

[right][i]- Solo Tremaine[/i][/right]

[center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/deathknight.jpg[/img]

?He's the Almighty Lord of Fire and that's that. He deserves all the recognition he can get. (And he lets me loiter in his lap. That's a bonus.)?[/center]

[right][i]- DDG[/i][/right]

[center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/mitch.jpg[/img]

?Whether you like his style or not, Mitch has to be one of the best poets on the OB. Of all the years I?ve been with the OB, I?ve never seen anyone write as strangely, exotically, or as choppy as him. Though most of his poems can confuse and lose the reader, after reading it over a couple of times, you discover a depth in writing that not even some novelists could every reach. He?s been bashed, smashed, kicked in the balls (verbally), yet still weathers the storm[s] to come out with progressive work when most people would give up. He?s inspired, helped, and guided.?[/center]

[right][i]- Athena[/i][/right]

[center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/charles.jpg[/img]

?I also nominate myself because I do not have to post to be nifty. My backlog of posts contains enough niftiness to last about a decade or so.?[/center]

[right][i]- Charles[/i][/right]

[center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/aaryanna.jpg[/img]

?Aarayanna first caught my attention with her posts in the Otaku Lounge. Well actually, that?s a lie. What really caught my attention was her avatar and banner combination, for not since Charles and his CATtitude had I seen someone who was so dangerously in love with their pet. History has proven that this type of fanatical devotion is often paired with spamming and I was pleasantly surprised to find that Aarayanna is a fantastic addition to the OtakuBoards community. Whether it be Zelda, or Cowboy Bebop, we all walk a fine line between obsession and insanity but nobody walks it better than Aarayanna and that ridiculous dog of hers.?[/center]

?I would like to cast a pity vote for Lady Asphyxia. She is forced to wade through terrible fan fiction on daily basis. That alone makes her deserving of being nifty. And although she didn't receive the most votes on the boards, I say that quality matters over quantity.?[/center]

[center][img] http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e366/nifty_fifty/adam_justin300.jpg[/img]

?For me, putting these guys here is just a no-brainer. They really deserve a lot more recgonition than they often get. I really have to commend Adam for making Art of Otaku such a success and I have to give a shout to Justin for his constant assistance with the technical bits. I'm really looking forward to working with both of them on future sites.?[/center]

In addition to being a great RPG it's also a tremendously well crafted story, one that could easily stand on its own in book form. It also has potention to be expanded as well as evolving into further RPG's. Speaking of evolving, "Peace Hangs Them" is a great example and it's still open for sign-ups/ shameless fan-girl plug.?[/center]

In fact, he's quite awesome. I really enjoy his sense of humor, because there's a bit of "black anger" mixed in with an almost Monty Python-esque cornball nature, topped off with his own special brand of satire. His posts are always fun to read, and anyone who skewers Puff Dadd--P. Diddy...Diddy...whatever, is nifty as hell in my book.

Even some other members are trying to their hand at this style and seeing what results they get. We even have one member who is successfully making a serious OB tale.

The only reason I'm not miffed about this being so late is Retribution's and Delta's (I'm just going to assume they were theirs of course, heh) images for each winner. The one for the Oldies, in particular, was hilarious.

The results this year were really fun, too. Congrats, everyone! =D

[SIZE=1]Sad I didn't get an award u_u (But really, who wouldn't be?) But I'm really pleased that Gavin did. *high-fives him*

Thought it was totally necessary to comment on the wonderful layout. I did a double take on "How do you pronounce your username" because the header graphic looks exactly like a dictionary page. Retri and Delta really outdone themselves for this, and it looks simply amazing.

(Congrats to everyone who won this year. You all deserved it. ^_^)[/SIZE]

You guys did an outstanding job this year; you really outdid yourselves. I love the presentation. A big congratulations for all those involved.

Otherwise I can only say, Doukeshi, I have no idea who you are or how to pronounce your name, but you are in big trouble, mister. Anyone who is anyone from Group Sounds knows that I'm the one who started the crybaby joke by posting a picture of that very infant, and converting it into a smiley appropriately named :baron:.

I'll see you in court!

No kidding; this is great stuff. It's clear that a lot of effort and thought went into all of the images (not to mention the other parts of the process, such as collecting quotes), and I can only imagine how much time it took.

Heck, I kind of wish I could use the image that was made for me as a banner or something. It's just that awesome. :animeshy:

I'm honored to be included--and I'm honored & grateful on behalf of the poor Anime Lounge, haha. Congratulations to everyone, most especially the committee members who helped put this together. Fantastic work.

[quote name='Charles']Otherwise I can only say, Doukeshi, I have no idea who you are or how to pronounce your name, but you are in big trouble, mister. Anyone who is anyone from Group Sounds knows that I'm the one who started the crybaby joke by posting a picture of that very infant, and converting it into a smiley appropriately named :baron:.[/quote]

Looks like you'll be taking the wrong person to court, because it was actually RiflesAtRecess who posted that quote. :p

Anyway, I enjoyed the images very much, too, and they were definitely worth the wait. Fantastic stuff. And congrats to everyone who made it onto the Nifty Fifty! :)

[FONT=Arial]Congraturations, e'erone! I was wondering when this thing would finally come up, and I was figuring the staff were going crazy with the layout. I'm either clairvoyant, or you're just predictable (what else is there, neh?) Nah, I'm sure it's neither. But anyway, nominating sure was a ruuush. I can't wait to nominate again next year. Yay, nominating!

Jaykay, jaykay. xP;; the layout IS amazing, though, excellent job. There should be a Nifty-Fifty One: the Nifty Fifty 2006 graphics. Then I suppose there will also be a Nifty-Fifty Two: having a Nifty Fifty-One. =) Non?[/FONT]

Yay, what a great fourth OB-anniversary present for me to finally see one of my creations getting mentioned in one of these awards! ;D

This year's (and partially last's as well) OB Survivor has been great fun to both the host and to my knowledge the players, and the fun is still continuing at the Arena as the end of the game draws nearer and nearer.

So muchos thankies to all of you who nominated OBS:GO! to be among the Nifty Fifty, I feel so proud! XD *blush*

[color=#9933ff][font=informal roman][size=3]*Blush* I would like to thank the academy? And admit that I only figured out a few months ago that I could submit my own fonts... next on my list of things to do... different colors!

But thanks for the nomination. [/color][/font][/size]

[color=navy][size=1]Just a heads-up: I snipped the quote out of your post because it was screwing up the page layout (and I know jack about HTML, haha, so I couldn't do anything else to fix it).

[/quote][COLOR=DarkOliveGreen]I?ll second that the way the results were presented is down right gorgeous. I look at the detail that went into them like the Avatar Submission Thread one and it?s just a total Wow! We need a Nifty Fifty One just for those graphics. ^_~ I know what I?ll be nominating for the next time.

I?ve been looking forward to seeing the results and it far exceeded my expectations. ^_^ Congratulations to everyone who was chosen. ^_~[/COLOR]

[size=1]Firstly, holy crap this page is all messed up, lol. Secondly, HOLY **** the Nifty Fifty looks so ******* sexy! Wow...I was not expecting something that extravagant. Jesus..

I'm practically breathless. I'm honoured that I made it to the final listing, and I congratulate everyone else who made it, as well. But most of all, I would like to thank everyone for their effort, and all of your incredible nominations.Without everyone's "two cents", this year's Fifty would've been very rough. It was a great round; so many new people and new staff members. It was fun. And with all the changes that are happening currently, and are scheduled to happen this year, I can only imagine how next year's Fifty is going to look.

Oh, and one more shout out. Thank you, Shy babe, for allowing me to help again this year. It was a great pleasure and privilege.

[b]Edit-[/b] Yay! All fixed. [/size]

So now I know I am not crazy any longer. Still makes me wonder though..

Now for a short rant.. Holy ****! This is ******* awesome! the hell did you do to come up with such ******* cool images! /rant


I was cursing myself out when the day I finally knew what I wanted to nominate for the Nifty Fifty and it turned out my computer just wanted to kill itself. Dagger picked up the slack that I so shamfully left behind. Simply because you can't not love the Anime Lounge now can you?

Just as a P.S though... If you managed to make this year's look so damn sexy. How are you going to inprove on that for next year? It had better make me blow up a little inside

Congrats to all the winners by the way. You all deserved it (^_^)=b[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]

[COLOR=Indigo]Those graphics are just absolutely amazing. I?ve been looking forward to seeing the results and I had no idea it was going to be so beautifully done. Definitely worth the wait to see the results.

Congratulations to all who were nominated and to those who were selected. All of you have definitely earned it. And thank you to everyone who took the time to contribute. I know I will be looking forward to the next Nifty Fifty. [/COLOR]

[COLOR=Navy]Wow! I actually won something.....new experience....

Well it was unexpected for sure and I'm honoured to have gotten an award, I never expected that I'd get a Nifty Fifty Nomination when I first joined OtakuBoards.

Congratulations to the other winners, they all deserve it without a doubt.

Oh, and great graphics, I love them :love: Thanks to Delta for that particular banner that she made for me (plus all my other banners I have ^__^).[/COLOR]

[color=#4B0082]Hah! I love the image used for the QKT entry. (No, not just because I happened to take the screen shot.) Absolutely perfect!

I gotta say, this was worth the wait. The table layout with the graphics really sets things off and makes it a lot of fun to scroll through and see each entry.

Everyone and everything mentioned definitely deserves to be there. Well, maybe not so much my, "People who misspell my screen name," one, but I'm happy that I've managed to continue my tradition of getting funky nominations into the final results. . . . Congratulations to everyone who got a mention, both here and in the nominations--and thanks to everyone who nominated me!

. . .

[size=1]*sigh of relief*

Thank God this thing is over with. I'd like to thank Delta -- she seriously, seriously, double seriously picked up my slack and did the other half of the images. Not only that, but they look stunning. I knew I could count on you to cover for (and insanely surpass) me.

And thanks to Shy for asking me to do the images. While they were a serious hassle, it all paid off in the end.[/size]

[color=darkred]"Nifty", eh? I guess that's another one to add to the list.

The graphics are awesome. I think that this has been the only time where I've gladly waited for the whole page to load, because checking them all out is well worth it. By the way, the banner for Play It looks just plain awesome.[/color]
