FencingForum's best of 2005!

Well it seems that 2005 was a bit of a bumper year for Fencing. More drawn out politics from the FIE, the launch of a decent Internet-only fencing channel and a very good World Championships. As such Leon Paul have got together with www.fencingchannel.tv to allow us to do our very own Oscars ... of sorts.

We'll be having 3 main prize-winning competitions plus a couple of fun ones.

We are looking for your nominations in the following categories. These will be assessed by our expert panel (ok, us; the moderators and our decision is final) and the winners will be announced at the end of February.

Best thread (http://fencingforum.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6494)
Which thread do you think has been the most informative, interesting, or just useful, thread of the last year. The person who started that thread wins 1 world championship DVD of their choice plus 50 of Leon Paul equipment vouchers.

Best contribution (http://fencingforum.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6495)

Who has contributed the most usefully over the last year. Who has said the most interesting things, passed on the most wisdom or been the best commentator? The winner gets a World Championship DVD of their choice plus 25 of Leon Paul vouchers.

Best single contribution (http://fencingforum.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6496)

Which one post or comment, best encapsulates what it means to be part of the 'online' fencing community? Was it advice, sarcasm, hard headed common sense - which post sums it all up? The person making that comment gets a World Championship DVD.

Wooden Spoon (http://fencingforum.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6498)

This is a bit of fun. Who, which, where, when - is/was the most stupid comment, or overall daftest contributor, of the last year. The winner gets a Leon Paul goodie bag. No one is sure what will be in this bag, but it will be ... interesting.
