Next up is best signature. The two leading contenders for this race both had similar signatures, but the graphic artistry of one user won out in the end,SilentBackstabber

Next up is best writer. Solistra was the most well-known juggernaut in this category, being one of the most prolific writers and moderator of the Literature, Art, and Music forum. Sander and SpectreofEschaton presented some tough competition, but let me spell it out to you. The winner isSolistra
Next up is best tutorial. There were only two nominees for this category, both of which are very helpful, but the winner by an overwhelming margin isRPG Maker VX School
Next up is best RMVX game demo. The competition between Lost Heaven and Walking the Plank was fierce. They each switched first place and tied constantly. Finally, with only a couple hours left, one victor emerged. That victor isWalking the Plank
Next up is best complete RMVX game. This was also a hot competition, between Kazeko and the Midnight Guild and War of the Nigel. Both games are made by members who are very much a part of the community. However, the winner of this war isKazeko and the Midnight Guild
by Prof. Meow Meow
Next up is best IRC user. This award had a lot of nominees, as the IRC channel is very tight-knit, making it hard to choose just one person as the winner. Many would agree, though, that one of the most iconic users who best represents the channel, and the winner of the award, isTouchfuzzy
Next up is best moderator. The competition here was between PINEDAVX and SilentBackstabber, both of who were global mods together and kept the forums clean from spam and trolling. It was a close race, but in the end the winner isSilentBackstabber
Next up is best staff member. All of the staff contribute to the site and help keep it a great place to be, otherwise they wouldn't be staff. The main competition was between Kav and PINEDAVX, but the winner in the end is, due to all the ways in which he has contributed to the site,PINEDAVX
I'm sure that if I had been in the running, the winner would have been me.
And finally, the most important and prestigious of all the awards, member of the year. The winner of this award best exemplifies the ideal member of RPGMakerVX.net and is a rolemodel to us all. And the winner of this award isGrandmaDeb
