For people who may not know, the Usies are like an award show for Chu Members. So basically the best members win awards based on how awesome they are as decided by the moderators also we take bribes but not really.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 you may find yourself... living in a shotgun shack, and you may ask yourself... well? How do I win a Usie? Well you have to be an active forumgoer 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 don't nominate yourself, have some class, gosh.
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.
Thread of the year: Ryan-, drpepperfanatic, AdmiralThrawn, Lamile
Youngblood of the year: Chingy42007, Dancer087, Paradox, Degari
Blog of the year: Dhampy, forty-two, Jane29
User of the year: Shibby, Latiosmaster47, Jane29, Vonfuzzball
This year, I think Nic_Durron deserves this award more than anyone else I can think of on the site.
Blog Of The Year:
I'm going to nominate Shibby, lamile, and Degari for this category. I think they have the two best blogs on the site at this point.
Thread Of The Year:
I think this one goes to lamile again for her Pokémon quiz. There isn't another thread like it on the site.

CHU User of the Year: Bes
-He's been a great, helpful, active user that contributes a lot to the site. Look at them posts from all those reviews he submitted!
Second & third nominations: Rami and LPee (latios_power)
Blog of the Year: Degari
Second nomination: Shibby
I agree with the nomination for Bes. He has been the 1 person who has helped me the most with my game reviews as well as a possible FAQ in the future. Bes definitely deserves it.
Lamile's Pokemon Emerald Quiz. Still going strong, even though there aren't many participants, I can't think of any other thread that's been as long lasting and still looked after.
CHU Blog of the year-
Degari: Always something new and decent length too.
Latios_power: Love the funny and interesting blogs, often provoking conversation in the comments.
CHU User of the year-
Bes: Yea who else? lol
But user of the year hum, i think this will be Shibby for me <3
He is just nice person who is happy every time i say hello to him or anything else
Second nomination could be Bes, since he is only person who answer on every blog and seems to be pretty active here
Maybe i will win something like that one day
Well checked out some blogs, and since Shibby invested most time and passion to write his entries i would say he deserve Blog of the year for meh
