:bounce: Welcome one and all, and listen closely for the Golden Plumbobs have just lived through some major reshuffling. :bounce:
--This is an announcement post to prep everyone for the January Nominations--

The biggest change concerns the awards!
The awards given out on this year have been reduced to only 15 categories. The goal is to diversify the winners and bring attention to more specific parts of our wonderful boolprop community!

:lightning: Winners will now also be disqualified in the category they won in for the following year. They will be eligible again for the same category afterward. :lightning:

This is the medal for this Golden Plumbobs!

And these will be the new categories!
Spoiler:
Palmer Whisperer
Sweetest Lovebirds
Terminator
Best Common Challenge
Best Uncommon Challenge
Best Rare Challenge
Best Story or Other
Best Legacy with a Twist
Best Legacy Story
Best Legacy Challenge
Best Build a City Challenge
Eyeball Catcher
Seducer
Undercover Agent
Underpaid Miracle Workers
Boolproprian Olympian


You can’t tell what some of these are? That’s normal!

Each award will get a detailed entry during the month of January!
Every few days, I’ll present one of the awards, detailing out what it is and who is eligible, as well as providing links to submit your nomination for that category! Don't worry this is a lot simpler than it sounds ;)
Take the time to check out the potential nominees, this is a spotlight event!

:plumbob: Only stories/challenges updated at least once in 2018 are eligible for the Golden Plumbobs of 2019 :plumbob:

At last, the final week of January will be an extra week to allow everyone to make sure they’ve nominated someone for each category! The following month of February will host the voting.

:fluffy: Anyone who participates and nominates someone for every category will earn their house +30pts :fluffy:

I am love love loving having drop down menus!!!!

I'm total garbage at knowing who's eligible for certain categories, and then it gives me such horrible anxiety trying to work it out that I end up not nominating anyone, but this time I've nominated someone for each category so far!!!
