The 2023 Fundie of the Year awards blog

It’s time once again for the Fundie of the Year awards, the part of the year’s end where the fanatics are ranked, compared, and scored for our amusement.

As always, our first step is a nomination round. Leave a comment on this blog post to nominate someone for an award, and second the nomination by starring it. Put in some justification, plus a link. For example, if I wanted to nominate schwa for best sound, I’d write this:


[b]Best Sound: ə[/b]

Very soft-sounding and one of the most common sounds in English. The name is also inherently funny sounding, at least to me.

If you’re having trouble finding stuff, might I suggest the shiny advanced search function? You can search for stuff based on text, fundie name, tag, and date range.

The categories

The following categories will almost certainly be used in the election round. You can nominate other awards that you want, just like you nominate candidates for these awards. If others propose candidates for your award idea, we’ll put it on the ballot.
