2019 Automation EOTY Awards


#1

Welcome to the fourth annual Automation End of the Year Awards!


Welcome back to the annual Automation EOTY awards! It’s an honor for me to host this challenge to bring out the best that the community has to offer. Now that we’re at the end of the decade, Automation has been in development for pretty much the entire time - there’s years upon years of changes and development, but this year has to easily be one of the most impressive in terms of growth and development among the community!


OVERVIEW

The EOTY awards are a community-run competition where you get to vote for our candidates and categories. You’ll be able to choose which categories you want to vote for along with the nominees you think deserve to win their respective disciplines. After 3 rounds of voting, we’ll have our results!


VOTING

There is a 3-round system to our voting, but before any categorical voting occurs, the groups must be made themselves. Here are all of the processes that will occur this year:

  1. First, categories will be chosen. You will choose to eliminate 5 categories from 2 different themes; cars and community.
  2. Next, people will nominate their 3 favorite subjects within a category.
  3. Voters afterwards will vote for their 2 favorite subjects in the category.
  4. Finally, voters will choose their favorite subject in a given category.

Category voting will proceed from November 29th to 9:00 PM EST, December 5th. Primary voting will go from December 6th to 11th, secondary voting from December 12th to 17th, and tertiary voting from December 18th to 23th. On Christmas Eve, results will be out.


We implore that you do not vote or nominate yourself in any categories. Thank you.


We wish you all happy holidays!

Prelimenary voting has ended. Thank you for your votes.

You may now vote for yourself if you would like, since I cannot track what I expect to be 50+ votes in a few days.


#8

I would like to note a mistake on the voting. In Car Company of the Year (Luxury), it states “Honghu Huangdou Automotive Co.” as a brand. This is incorrect, and should be Guangzhou Honghu Automotive Co. Please keep this in mind whilst voting. Thank you!


#9

@titleguy1 There is a typo for Car of the Year (Luxury) where it says Tanaka Aventis. It’s supposed to say Aventus, which is a luxury car.


#10

Fixed. You might want to consider renaming one of them because I was confused the entire time as to which one I was looking at :stuck_out_tongue:


#11

Reminder that voting ends tomorrow if you haven’t voted yet!

Thank you all for such a wonderful year!


#16

The Honghu Automotive Corporation and myself thank you all for the votes! The love is very much appreciated! <3

And of course, congratulations to everyone else. This has been a great year for Automation :slight_smile:


#17

Thank you everyone for the votes! It makes me happy that I could contribute to this great community and its been fun to watch it grow this year. We’ve really pushed each other to make some beautiful cars this year and the winners’ recognition is well deserved. Also thanks to titleguy1 for your continued hard work running the auto shows, starting CSC and hosting EOTY this year!

Merry Christmas!


#18

I’m real happy and all and I’mma let you finish…

…but I just wanted to say that Chip’s ARXL challenge was actually the best challenge* of all time. OF ALL TIME! How the fuck did people not remember or recognise this? It’s just as well the title still went to another of his events, and also just as well that for once CSR didn’t win it** because honestly there’s been great things that missed out in 2017 and 2018 too. Several members of the community have suggested perhaps only individual rounds of CSR should be eligible for nomination and I think this is an excellent idea.

*that didn’t have access to source code in order to create the BRC

**I’m allowed to say this, I don’t loathe myself enough to be able to offend myself lol

Okay that’s my 2 cents. Thanks for the votes and Merry Christmas!


#19

Without sounding cheesy, I really do wanna thank everyone in this community for making this year so great. This was a year filled with amazing cars, new ways on how to experiment with fixtures and great community members. Truly a memorable year, here’s to 2020.

And congratulations to everyone in the Awards!

For all the nominees and winners, you made this year special. Happy (late) holidays from us.


#20

Thank you to all of the community, for all the votes and nominations i appreciate it so much. I can’t believe I’ve been active here for less than a year and its been one enjoyable. All of the support, advice and friendships have helped make the game far more enjoyable.

With this i bid you a wonderful Christmas and i hope that now moving into the 20s Automation can continue to evolve and grow.

Thank youuu!
