    Neither. this guy plagued the forum before either of them arrived and was just mean to everybody. I can't remember what he called himself, but I think he was half Czeck living in the US. I remember he targeted Kriegspfarrer i particular, maybe he remembers his username?

    For most knowledgable about tanks,I nominate Christian.
    For most knowledgable non-tanks,I nominate Roel.
    The 1950willys award should go to JC for winning two out of three GB's so far.
    The first merlin award for punning should go to merlin obviously.
    The other categories I'm not sure about at this time.

    Dennis Neff was a member here for a little while. He went by 1950willys. He was very keen on building tank models. He was also a moderator on the SavageShooters.com forum, which is where we met.

    He died of cancer at a relatively young age.

    awards

    May I suggest that if you do have a 'Punning' award you name it the 'COD AWARD' ? I feel that the 'Cod Wars' (a serious thread) suffered enough 'punn is meant' to clam the first plaice!

    Since it's getting close to years end,I figured I'd bump this back to the top.These awards could be an annual forum event.Also,maybe the winners could get a nice certificate such as the ones that have been awarded in the Group Builds.What do you guys think?
