It's been an interesting year folks, and what started as a small subreddit a little over a year ago has turned into one of the most talked about subreddits on the entire site, from 10 subscribers likely to cross 26,000 by the end of the week!
As a mod, I've had a lot of interesting experiences. A radio interview on BBC radio, random reporters contacting me and misquoting me (thanks Business Insider!), a few run-ins with trolls (maybe one or two), and probably a thousand or so link flairings (come on guys, flair your own links dammit).
But every so often I run across a member who details how the red pill has improved their lives, helped them through hard times, or opened their eyes to the world around them, and it reminds me why we're here and doing this. I'm happy to see how things have turned out so far, and I'm looking forward to another year in the manosphere. We're getting too big to ignore, so let's see what happens next.
I've been alerted that the 2013 best of awards are now taking place and I think it would be good to take part and see just what our community has achieved during the year.
There will be five categories, the winner of each category will receive 1 month of free Reddit Gold!
Most Thought-Provoking Submission: What submission was really insightful and caused the best conversation to take place?
Most Paradigm Changing Revelation: Comment or text-submission, must be text on our sub, not a blog post. What tidbit or diatribe really changed your perspective on everything you understand? What has rocked your world view the most?
Best Overall Submitter: Who has submitted the best, most consistent quality content this year?
Best Waking-Up Story: What story of somebody taking the red pill did you connect with the most?
Best Field Report: What field report demonstrated red pill ideas in the field the best?
One nomination per comment, and take care to comment in reply to the category you're nominating for.
Nominations can only consider posts and data from the year 2013.
The nomination must have a clear winner. It must be a single person who has not deleted their account or removed themselves from their submission. This includes posts and comments which have since been removed or deleted.
Please include as much data as possible when nominating, and make a good case. Provide a url to the user or comment. Our automod is being modified to allow links in this post.
Winners will be chosen by highest number of upvotes, and due to brigading downvotes will be ignored.
