The Winners!

Another year, another set of awards. Thank you once again to everybody who nominated, voted, and otherwise participated this year. There were quite a few ties this time around which, as Niven put it, is good because that means there's been some great RPing going on - it's hard to choose! Let's see if we can't keep on going strong into the new year.

Congratulations to the winners, enjoy the shiny new badges
