  WinKing: I would like to thank those who nominated & voted for me as being 'Most Constructive' in 2017. A pleasant surprise to be sure. Congratulations to <YouRang> who also won this award & is very deserving for all he has done here. I would like to give a nice loud 'shout out' to my friend <Golden Executive> who received an honorable mention in this category.

I try to do as much as I can to help out <chessgames> & its members. This is a great site we all belong to.

Jan-19-18  WorstPlayerEver: I don't get it. How can I have the best username?

  offramp: I think the Caissars should be renamed <The Daniels> and individual awards called <Dannys>.

  Diademas: Me not know.
There may be some kind of honorable mention for someone carrying the torch from Daniel, but in honor of him I think this should be a living and loving environment, not a mausoleum.

Some do. Those votes for Chris Owen don't make much sense. He might win, though.

  SkySports: It seems that at the moment there is a single candidate for the best post (pdxjjb comment on one of the Stockfish-Alphazero games). I wonder if everyone voted for it or if only a user has expressed his/her preference so far...

  jith1207: I don't know why I have been nominated in one of the categories. Description says that's who contributes the most. Considering my nomination and the number of categories where Chris Owen is nominated, it sounds like more care should be given to honor the enormous number of esteemed contributors of this site, who are rather much under appreciated IMHO. Also, the number of votes tallied seems to be very low, considering the number of regularly active members here. This should be the moment of honor for those members who truly have dedicated their time for this site, even if it means to have 10 nominations per category. And, I believe a note for voting page should appear in top of every page just as it is for the holiday hunt.
