Second place: <URL:https:
Third place: <URL:stuff/
2006-10-05 [Steph-O-Melon]: yeah mines too lol ehg...
2006-10-05 [Asrun]: KeiKei: It's really hard to trace the bacteria back to the main source, so there wasn't much more they could do
2006-10-05 [;;Melodrama Junkie]: Ahhh, well thats still unfortunate.
2006-10-06 [FireGypsy]: Apparently nobody thinks lizads are cute O_o Damn house pets *grumbles about dogs*
2006-10-06 [une histoire d'amour]: wah i cat vote! TT_TT
2006-10-06 [FireGypsy]: You have to be a member of the forum *points up* -_-
2006-10-06 [Pandora♥xcore]: aww Cams v.v
2006-10-06 [Asrun]: Nobody likes degu's either. :( Right now they are chirping at me from being hurt by this. :(
2006-10-06 [Asrun]: And they arn't mice. ._. They are degu's...Some experts say they are closely related to Chinchillas.. But now new information suggests that their closest relative is the beaver (this has not yet been proven). They have tons of personality and love people. They don't bite and are very affectionate.
2006-10-06 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Awwww! ^-^ I love Chincillas!!!
2006-10-06 [Asrun]: Chinchillas can be mean. Degu's are very sweet social. :I they feel like chinchillas though.. Their fur is really soft.
2006-10-06 [Eyes of the Reaper]: *giggles and dances* How much do they cost? o.o
2006-10-06 [FireGypsy]: O_o yay people like my lizards! *dances*
2006-10-06 [Asrun]: $10-15. That's in Canadian dollars. But they get pretty big.. (female rat-sized) So they need a big cage, which will cost you. I'm going to be making my own verticle-style cage out of acrylic soon. :) It'll be big. The thing with degu's, is that you should always buy more than one because they need to socialize.
2006-10-06 [Asrun]: No one likes my degu's. :/
2006-10-06 [Eyes of the Reaper]: *nod* I might think about getting two/three then. :)
2006-10-06 [Asrun]: They are great pets. :) Just makes sure you handle them as much as possible when you first get them so they will get used to you. My baby-girls are cleaning each other right now.. lol. :D They are sisters.. Oh, and make sure they are the same sex.. Being rodents... Well.. Yeah.. >.>;
2006-10-06 [Eyes of the Reaper]: lol Yeah, I can imagine. XD
2006-10-06 [;;Melodrama Junkie]: That'd be an overun cage..lol
2006-10-07 [;;Melodrama Junkie]: xD! Her pet is cute ^^ Mine is just a hyperactive thing that must think its small..Haha
2006-10-07 [Asrun]: At least my baby-girls got one vote. ._.
2006-10-07 [;;Melodrama Junkie]: Dun worry Ash they are really cute. But I gotta love my dogs lol
2006-10-07 [Eyes of the Reaper]: XD That's what I was thinking about mine until Eryn voted for her too... *huggles Asrun*
2006-10-07 [Asrun]: Well, i don't have a dog anymore.. So...
2006-10-07 [;;Melodrama Junkie]: I've had dogs all my life >< One of them is 10ish and one is only just 1 :o Merl the great Dane like bounds around the house so much. He must think hes holly's size or something.
2006-10-07 [Asrun]: Mine died.
2006-10-07 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Tessa is five... :) She used to be really hyper but now she's calmed down and we're going to get her into being a therapy dog. ^-^
2006-10-07 [;;Melodrama Junkie]: That sucks Ash :(! And cool Reaper lol.
2006-10-08 [Luci Fer..]: i dont know how to vote :'( help??
2006-10-09 [Ringbearer]: New rule by default: No commenting whatsoever unless its a question. People breaking the rule will be warned first, kicked out of the EPA by warning 2 and reported upon by warning 3.
2006-10-28 [wolvie]: how do you make a nomination?
2006-10-28 [FireGypsy]: When nominations are open again ^_^
2006-10-28 [wolvie]: oh thanks ^_^
2007-09-11 [Supernova.]: Silly 58 character limit XP *inserts commas plus an and*
2007-09-18 [james2077]: ok why is it if you hit the link when nominated that it go`s to the pictures BUT when you click it on the voting it does not??? something was messed up it when you tried to move it it works fine on my page and when it was put up to be nominated... something here is not fair !!!
2007-09-18 [Ringbearer]: Fixed... apparently you have 2 spaces between the words kitties and the word and. I checked up by looking closely at the nomination.
2007-12-29 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Oh my god! I'm so sorry!
2011-08-28 [kittykittykitty]: *meows* :P
2011-08-28 [Stephen]: xD
I hope you win, Kitty. x)
2011-09-20 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Damn...I have a pet I wanna nominate!
2011-09-20 [kitsune-wan]: should there not be a way to judge if those are realy your pets?
2011-09-20 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: :/
2011-09-30 [Amalaswinta]: oooh, I wanna nominate my Angel :)
2011-10-01 [Stephen]: @Jimmy: Who owns the pets you nominated?
2011-10-01 [Cerulean Sins]: Yeah I've been wondering that too o.O
2011-10-03 [wolvie]: I think their his...I could be wrong though o.O
2011-10-03 [Stephen]: xD;
He's not supposed to nominate his own pets, though now that it's in voting there's not a whole lot to be done.
2011-10-03 [Bookwyrm]: I thought you could nominate your own pets. We always did before. o.o I know I nominated Lil' Bit one year, and Tessa was nominated by Allie the year that she won. Cole is my gnome, and Sirius is Allie's bunny.
I know you're not supposed to nominate YOURSELF for awards like the Cutest Girl or Cutest Boy or Artist, etc. But the pet ones have almost always been nominated by their owners. >.>
2011-10-03 [Bookwyrm]: The rules say you may not nominate yourself, but I don't think that ever applied to the cutest pet award. I also don't think it applied to the wiki award, but I'm not one hundred percent on that.
Like I said, in years past all the nominations I saw of pets were of people's own pets, except this year.
2011-10-03 [Stephen]: Really? I didn't know people had nominated their own pets/pages. Well, if no one objected in the past then I see nothing wrong with it.
I haven't actually worked on the Elfpack Awards since 2004 or so (before now), so my memory on how it use to run is pretty much non-existent. xD
2011-10-03 [Bookwyrm]: Well like I said I don't remember about the wikis. I don't remember if I nominated The Wiccaning the year it got third or if I nominated I Love Love and someone else nominated The Wiccaning. My memory there is vague. But pets, yeah, as far back as I remember people have always nominated their own pets. I think we should put something about that in the rules to clarify, though. :)
2011-10-03 [Stephen]: I think we should put something about that in the rules to clarify, though. :)
Agreed. I'll do so once I finish responding to this comment. x)
@Wolvie *kicks* <3
2011-10-03 [wolvie]: *le gasp* well that was somewhat rude D: *goes in a corner to cry*
2011-10-03 [Stephen]: It's been updated now. :3
Although: Can a member be nominated for more than one wiki/pet? It wouldn't be good if someone nominated themself ten times using ten different wiki's/pets.
Why everyone so mean to me? D:
2011-10-03 [Eyes of the Reaper]: I think it should be a limit. For example, if I had Tessa and Sirius nominated, I wouldn't want them together. Maybe limit it to two pets per person and expand the nominations? Like, make it 15-20 slots instead of 10?
2011-10-03 [Stephen]: It was 15, I just reduced it because the amount of nominations is so low.
It actually seems kind of silly to have three winners when four people are nominated for some awards, but whatever. =P
I could up it to 2 max and do 15 nomination limit.
2011-10-03 [Eyes of the Reaper]: I think that works well.
2011-10-03 [Bookwyrm]: I agree, that seems fair. Although the problem with that is that the vote can be split if a person is just voting for a pet/page because it's your's. But that's a sacrifice people will have to make if they nominate twice. I do think people should be allowed to request a nomination removal if they don't want to be on the ballot. I didn't think about it before, but I really didn't want to be on Cutest Girl or Best House because I'd already won those.
2011-10-04 [Stephen]: You don't want to collect multiple trophies all stating your house is awesome? :D
I agree though. I'm not sure what I'll do if I win Cutest Girl. >_>
2011-10-04 [Eyes of the Reaper]: @Stephen: Pass it to the next highest-voted female?
2011-10-04 [Bookwyrm]: I don't need trophies stating how awesome I am. My awesomeness speaks for itself!
That said, I like my sparklies. /hugs them protectively
You could always give the trophy to someone you think deserves/needs it more. Be like the nicest Cute Girl ever. XD
2011-10-05 [Stephen]: I like pretty much anything that sparkles or shines. >_>'' I'm one of those people who will stop in mid-sentence to go "Ooo.. shiny.." and completely forget what I was talking about.
If I did win, I'd use my trophy to beat Jimmy with it, since he nominated me. Then it'd be all dented and such, and no one would want it. xP
2011-10-11 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: :o it's a tie! I used to avhe five what happened >
2011-10-13 [kittykittykitty]: Uh oh, a 3-way tie :o *tense*
2011-10-13 [Stephen]: Go bunny!
2011-10-13 [Amalaswinta]: bunnybunnybunn
2011-10-13 [Stephen]: :D
2011-10-15 [Stephen]: Congratulation
Your trophies will be delivered shortly!
New nomination period is now open!
2011-10-15 [Bookwyrm]: Huzzah Sirius Bunneh! :D (Also, congrats to all XD)
2011-10-16 [Stephen]: As a heads up to people -- starting the next contest period a new rule will be in place.
Unless there are at least six nominations for an award, the award will not end up going into the voting phase at the end of the nomination phase.
This is to make sure people encourage others to nominate, in addition to putting some fun into the awards so every nominee isn't instantly guaranteed to win.
2011-10-16 [Stephen]: ^_^
2011-11-14 [Stephen]: Congratulation
The nominations are once again open, for the month of November.
Remember: Anyone who was a winner last month cannot be nominated again for the same award.
2011-11-14 [Sonya Blue]: Yay! My little lizard won!!!
2011-11-15 [sammie h!]: I wonder, hmmm
2011-11-16 [Stephen]: Hm, technically I can't be nominated this month, because my pet won last month. Sorry Jimmy!
2011-11-19 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: [PSH, fine!]
2011-11-29 [Morgoth]: So... just pets who are members can be nominated?
2011-11-29 [sammie h!]: No, I mean, she voted herself which is against the rules.
2011-11-29 [Morgoth]: I don't think that rule applies here, since the thing being nominated isn't the nominee in question, but rather something belonging to the nominee. It's the same with the wiki nominations. You can nominate your own wikis and you'll be the one winning the award, but it doesn't violate the rules, since it isn't yourself you're nominating, but something you own.
Plus, restricting the pets you can vote for to only those owned by other people would serve no purpose and not nearly as many people would nominate things. Because honestly, who keeps up with everyone else's pets?
Also, [HeAVenShallBuRN] is still pre-op, so refer to him as a 'he'.
2011-11-30 [Stephen]: Also, [HeAVenShallBuRN] is still pre-op, so refer to him as a 'he'.
LOL. He will be a she soon enough though. ;)
3) Do not nominate yourself. However, you may nominate your own pet and wiki under the corresponding categories.
2011-12-01 [Stephen]: ... and this poll.
2011-12-02 [Amalaswinta]: *I only fixed a typo ;)
2011-12-02 [sammie h!]: Thanks. :)
2011-12-02 [sammie h!]: Hay, how come your now the admin of the poll???
2011-12-02 [Amalaswinta]: because I fixed a typo, as soon as you hit the submit button it'll be on your name again
2011-12-02 [Amalaswinta]: should be now :)
2011-12-02 [sammie h!]: 097) Which pet is going to win this award, vote now. :) (Administrator is private forum number -435) it says now, still not editable by me
2011-12-02 [Amalaswinta]: hmmmm... that's rather interesting... I've set it to the Cult forum of which you are a member...
just leave it like this for now, I'll get back to you on this one ^-^
2011-12-02 [sammie h!]: Ok then, no worries, I'm not that bothered, but I think its an error on the site
2011-12-02 [Amalaswinta]: could be ;)
2011-12-02 [sammie h!]: Are you on Elftown because I will see if it does the same there but would need your help
2011-12-02 [Amalaswinta]: I have an account there but am not doing anything there so...
like I said: just leave it for now, we'll get it sorted
2011-12-02 [sammie h!]: Is the poll ok?
2011-12-02 [Amalaswinta]: hehe, it was fine the first time around ;)
it's just fine now too :)
2011-12-02 [Amalaswinta]: ah, so that's why you deleted them! got it :)
we were kinda wondering about that ;)
2011-12-02 [Amalaswinta]: it's okay, first time doing something you're allowed to make minor mistakes ;)
2011-12-02 [sammie h!]: Lol, I don't like doing so, I don't like making mistakes. :)
2011-12-02 [Amalaswinta]: I don't think anyone likes making mistakes
but... if you never make mistakes, you never learn anything
so it's not really that bad ;)
2011-12-03 [Stephen]: o_O
I don't lecture people for making honest mistakes. =]
There's no worries.
As to the poll: It's set so that "The Cult" forum can edit it, which you're a member of Sammie. Ergo, you should be able to edit the poll. If you can't, it's likely a bug and you should PM [Hedda] about it. (I would, but he already has like 20 PM's from me.)
2011-12-03 [Amalaswinta]: ^-^
2011-12-10 [sammie h!]: Still unable to edit it, it is just the usual poll to me x
2011-12-10 [sammie h!]: Yeah, but he hasn't got back to me, he may have blocked me lol, I don't know
2011-12-10 [Amalaswinta]: just as long as you sent him a message :)
I don't expect him to block you, he's just really really busy ;)
if all else fails I have a back up plan to get you on this poll again so no worries :)
2011-12-10 [sammie h!]: I messaged him about a week ago now xx
2011-12-10 [Amalaswinta]: yeah, sometimes it can take up to a month :p
2011-12-10 [sammie h!]: 2011-12-04 11:37:22 (5 days ago), lol, ok then, no worries, please can we talk in private, I have a question not relating to Elfpack Changed it as got it wrong
2011-12-10 [Amalaswinta]: ah, you messaged him on elftown.
when you have a question about EP you should message him on EP, not ET ;)
also: when you send him a message, don't message him asking if you can ask him something. In stead, state clearly what the problem is and ask for help.
asking if you can ask something will most likely result in being ignored (goes for all staff really)
2011-12-10 [sammie h!]: No it was on here????
2011-12-10 [sammie h!]: It was on here, I didn't send him the message on Elftown, he only has one message on here from me, thats about this, so I think I am right on this one x
2011-12-10 [Amalaswinta]: ah, I figured it was ET since you wrote 'not relating to elfTOWN' ;)
the rest still stands though, leaving a comment or sending a message asking if you can ask a question most likely won't work :p
2011-12-10 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Not what I meant, I mean if you state you have a question or ask to speak to him in private, he'll most lieklyk ignore it? Try starting by Hello, how are you? then state you have a problem, explain what it is. Be more formal and coardual about it
2011-12-10 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: People ask me 'you're coucil right? can i ask you a question?' that message gets deleted and I do'nt respond
2011-12-10 [Amalaswinta]: my point exactly XD
2011-12-10 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: I do'nt like playing message tag, nor do any other the other memberes of council
2011-12-10 [Amalaswinta]: ah! well, you've just learnt how private messages to staff should be sent, so... ;)
2011-12-10 [sammie h!]: I already new, I sent him one that I'm just about to pm you x
2011-12-10 [Amalaswinta]: cool :)
2011-12-10 [Amalaswinta]: XD
2011-12-16 [sammie h!]: As there is a draw of 4 people at 13%, we will close the poll when there is another vote on one of these members. :)
2011-12-16 [Amalaswinta]: how about this: in a four way tie like this, give second place to whoever got nominated first and third place to whoever got nominated second (of those four of course).
seems like the only way to settle this i.m.o...
2011-12-17 [Morgoth]: I changed my vote, so now it's easier to decide.
2011-12-17 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: NAh, I thuink the WINNERS should get what they won, since polls are closed
2011-12-17 [Morgoth]: I changed my vote again then.
2011-12-17 [Amalaswinta]: @[HeAVenShallBuRN]: that'd mean 4 second price winners :p
@[sammie h!]: well, seeing as to how nominees are supposed to be added beneath the last nominee it should be safe to use the order of the nominees on this page (or you could review the page's history to know for sure) :)
2011-12-17 [sammie h!]: I'll do the second pain staking one lol. :)
2011-12-17 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: AFter ALLLLLLL thuis time me and Stephen haave tried to get her to win WE FINALLY DID IT!
2011-12-17 [Amalaswinta]: @sammie: good work :)
2011-12-17 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: THEN AGAIN, we might not have to go to stephen, since he's got a billion things going on handlign this shti alone with no single underling to help....I'm quite sure [Amalaswinta] has some pull in rank :P Shes no gaurd, but she is a high priv's council member
2011-12-17 [Amalaswinta]: @sammie: you're doing what you can, and doing a rather good job too, first time around :)
2011-12-17 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: I'M A PET RAWR
2011-12-17 [Amalaswinta]: hehehehe!!!
really proud of my doggie having won first price btw! :D
2011-12-17 [sammie h!]: lol
2011-12-18 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Stephen, you're nomation was deleted due to kitty winning last month
2011-12-18 [Morgoth]: Plan: I'm going to give the five that had only one vote a second place trophy and the one that had three votes a first place trophy. There will be no third place winner. It's stupid to arbitrarily break up a tie and hand out an award to one person, when another person who had the same number of votes gets absolutely nothing. There's no reason why we can't have five second places. It's apparent this competition isn't meant to be taken seriously anyway. It's just for fun, so everyone should win.
2011-12-18 [Morgoth]: Statement: I don't care what your opinions are on the matter; it's the obvious and right thing to do here, so I'm doing it regardless.
2011-12-18 [Morgoth]: Yo, Sam, deliver trophies for this yet?
2011-12-18 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: She doesn't have the privs
2011-12-18 [Morgoth]: Ha ha! She doesn't have privs! ...but who badges for these anyway?
2011-12-18 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Yes I know, but we're handling it
2011-12-18 [Morgoth]: But... I could be done with it almost instantly... and then he wouldn't have to worry about it and could get more important things done... I... I'm gonna do it!! *pulls out a gun*
2011-12-18 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Ahuh...forgett
2011-12-18 [Morgoth]: Bullets?
2011-12-18 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: You forgot to put them in, sir
2011-12-18 [Morgoth]: Psh, I don't need no fancy bullets. *pistol whips Sammie*
2011-12-18 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: Let's not have any of that.
2011-12-18 [Morgoth]: *postal whips?*
*the post office frowns upon these shenanigans*
2011-12-18 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: No sir, no violence permitted, no fucking with anyone on wiki's either please. I know it's not my place to tell you to do this,, but just leave [sammie h!] the fuck alone
2011-12-18 [Morgoth]: Even her face?
2011-12-18 [Morgoth]: And... and her body? What of her body?
2011-12-18 [Morgoth]: OH, GOD. WHAT ABOUT THE LEGS?!
2011-12-18 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: No sir
2011-12-18 [Morgoth]: Not even the bottom two?
2011-12-18 [kittykittykitty]: Only the top legs are permitted, not bottom legs.
2011-12-19 [Stephen]: You only need priv 79 to deliver trophies. See the multibadge in your notes and click on "Trophies" instead of "Badges" in the drop down on that page. :P
@Sammie: Ama's right, you're doing awesome. Thank you. <3
@Jimmy: Thanks for catching that. I didn't even realize she won. =[
@Ama: I love you. Thank you for being awesome and helpful.
@Penguin Bat: I'm not completely sure I know what you were talking about, but I've missed a good few changes lately. :P
2011-12-19 [Morgoth]: Legs, man. Legs.
2011-12-19 [Amalaswinta]: ah, so you're a legsman... hmmmm, I see....
2011-12-19 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: N ah he's legsolas, Legolas' cousin
2012-01-07 [Commandaaah]: Shadow is the CUTENESSEST
2012-01-07 [Sonya Blue]: I shall post a new link, I can't view it either >.>
2012-01-07 [Sonya Blue]:
2012-01-07 [sammie h!]: I'm just going to do something with this, on min. :)
2012-01-07 [sammie h!]: Done
2012-01-07 [Deg]: Awwwww! Puppy...so cute! :)
2012-01-08 [sammie h!]: The awards still have not been given out yet.
2012-01-08 [Amalaswinta]: will be fixed :)
2012-01-08 [sammie h!]: ok :)
2012-02-01 [Stephen]: Regarding the new page appearance and Quarterly Periods
The Elfpack Awards pages, like all other official pages, are being redesigned using the new official template.
Also, the new four times a year system was implemented both to reduce the workload for the Awards Staff, and to make it harder to win these awards, in an effort to make them seem more "special".
