Fashionista Award for most Stylish Niner (based on avatars).
Sniper Award for the most Technically Accurate Niner
If the sandbox (or something similar) was re-opened for admissions, then an award for best niner project.
I'm not sure I'm entirely on board with this whole "different nominees" idea.
Seriously though, that best Niner project thing was along the lines of what I was thinking.
I'll make sure Laura sees this thread. Keep the ideas coming! C
most "immersive" ?
Niner most in love with Laura award
Niner with the most duplicate posts award?
Niner That is Unlikely To Ever Be Flown Out By Microsoft To What Amounts To a Paid Vaction In Las Vagas Award
That one would likely increase my chances.
There are so few of us that you could easily create awards that could only be applicable to one or two of us. Personally, I would rather get a shout-out, on This Week on C9, for a good idea, than be the recipient of a general purpose award.
But I think having one big annual award is good for the community. It might be due to some type of cognitive bias, but, I did notice after the Nineys survey was posted, that most niners were more helpful.
I wouldn't want to see people pandering for handouts. But, I think anything that encourages personal growth and community involvement would be a nice tradition to conclude the Mix conference.
How about "Fly the top 15 posters to Vegas" award? Honestly, even without an award, it would be fun to get free admission to MIX or PDC for the few active posters here on C9.

This is great guys! Thanks for the feedback. I'd love to hear your suggestions for other categories as well, besides the "niner" categories.
Simple: people who spend time on C9 and also participate in the conversation. Typically, this means you have a C9 account, spend time interacting with your peers in the Coffeehouse or Tech Off or communicating on Video threads, etc. You are a Niner, for example, as our the folks posting on this thread....
@Charles: Although those categories make sense, our community is probably small enough that you'll probably have a lot of overlap between the nominees of each category, or just one or two nominees per category.
Bottom line: if you have that many categories, you end up inviting basically everybody who's active on the forums (not that that's necessarily a bad thing ).
@Sven Groot: True. I was just throwing out ideas... One thing is certain: we want Niners at our events and we like to celebrate our great community!
