It's that time of the year again... time for those many hours wasted upon the internet to pay off! It's time for the Usies!
What are the Usies, you ask? Well first, thank you for the question, person that sounds exactly like me. You know awards shows like the Oscars and the Emmys and stuff like that? Well the Usies are CHU's version of that, so they're at the very least way more entertaining than the stupid Emmys.
There are currently four (4) awards given out yearly to the member that best fits each category. Those awards are as follows:
CHU Thread of the year- The following thread has been maintained and on topic for an extended period of time, the thread manager does an exquisite job of keeping his thread in tip-top shape. Quite simply, it is the best thread of the previous year. (Previous Winners: Ryan-, drpepperfanatic, AdmiralThrawn)
CHU Youngblood of the year- The following user has been active for less than one year, but they still have had a great positive impact in their short time here. (Previous Winners: Chingy42007, Dancer087, Paradox)
CHU Blog of the year- The following blog excels in content and entertains is readers. The award is based on quality of the blog's content, not how many subscribers someone has. (Previous Winners: Dhampy, forty-two)
CHU User of the year- The most prestegious and sought-after award of them all, this user does everything in his or her power to make the site a better place. (Previous Winners: potato_chips, Latiosmaster47, jane29)
Prizes this year include the following: One V.I.P. rank, one free profile customization (a new avatar, a new header, a name change) and the User of the Year also receives Lifetime Unlimited Membership as well as a 1000 post count increase.
Now at this point, you may ask yourself, "golly gee Latios, what must I do to win one of these awards?" Well firstly, you would have to qualify for said award (the qualifications are listed above) and secondly, you'll have to be an active member who contributes positively to the site, regardless of what award you desire. Also you have to be nominated. And that is what this topic is for.
###So, if you bothered to read all that, and even if you didn't, now I need nominations!###
They don't need to be for every category. And they don't need to be for only one person. If you feel someone deserves an award, toss their name into the box.
Make sure whoever you nominate qualifies for the award you're nominating them for, Moderators are not eligible for the Usies, and FFS, don't nominate yourself, have some class.
After the nomination process, I will post the official nominations list here on GD. Then myself and the rest of the moderators will
argue furiously deliberate over who we think should be the appropriate winners in each category. Then I'll post the winner's list here on GD and you can all go have a party or something.

Blog of the Year: Dhampy
User of the Year: Nic_Durron
Too bad mods couldn't be nominated, I'd have nominated you LM47 for your comic updates in your blog, and Neo for User of the Year because honestly he's epic win when it comes to keeping the site clean, tidy, and free of muck =3
