Hello everyone hi.gif we would like to recognise the following in The Lounge for the month of January:
  • Best poster for January 2018: Liam
This month we had a couple of posters in mind for this award which did not make it easy! But in the end we decided that Liam had contributed so much this month, with a range of interesting threads that Lounge posters responded to well. Liam firstly brought some debate to the Lounge in January, from his 'LGBTQQIP2SAAK+' thread to asking us 'Are people too easily offended nowadays?'. It was fab to see you guys engaging with these topics in a passionate way! Also, 'If you were to go on a TV show...' was highlighted as a strong lighthearted thread from him too. Who knew so many BuzzJack members wanted to be on Pointless? Congrats Liam, keep up the great work!
  • Best threads for January 2018:
01) QUIZ NIGHT AT THE SOGGY DOGGY by burbe

Our top choice for the threads category was a no brainer this time! You know you have a gem of a thread on your hands when it amasses 40 pages in just one night. 'QUIZ NIGHT AT THE SOGGY DOGGY' saw burbe test us on our knowledge (well, some Googling was of course involved x) on subjects such as Geography, History, Buzzjack and Celebrities. It also tested us on our speediness through a Google forms style of playing. Naturally, chaos ensued as we were trying to be as quick as possible. Some humorous and memorable moments happened, like Sam thinking that Birmingham was across two continents (!) and me putting myself for a MALE that came top 10 in the Rate. The pressure gets to all of us okay. All in all it was a wildly entertaining night that resulted in some healthy competition and lots of response from you guys. Nice one burbe!

02) Things You've Never Tried by Midge

Our second nod for this month goes to Midge! He was a strong contender for the poster award this time (as some of you might have expected *cough cough* Snake x) but in the end he was just about pipped to the post. But there was no way that we could snub his continuous enthusiasm this month entirely! So we decided that our favourite contribution from Midge (formerly Lenny) was the 'Things You've Never Tried' thread. It was personal and intriguing to witness the range of suggestions offered. Things that seem as essential as breathing to some of us were totally alien to others. We appreciated the level of discussion that this topic brought and also thought that it was the most refreshing contribution in amongst all of Midge's similarly light-hearted offerings this month.

03) Weight Loss by awardinary

We were really torn on a third pick as plenty of suggestions were thrown into the ring. But ultimately Wardy prevailed with his 'Weight Loss' thread this month! He proposed many questions to us, such as which diets and exercise regimes work for us Lounge posters. This thread resulted in much response and turned into a bit of a supportive corner of The Lounge where people contributed their tips and tricks, or just generally offered some motivation. We appreciated the community spirit of this one! If you were a fan of this thread then be sure to check out the Sports & Fitness forum for more of this ilk.

Congrats to all of our January winners!

I wonder why, with the Midge username used instead of Lenny, was Botchia not used instead of burbe in the announcement? unsure.gif

I just used the usernames that came into my head oops, still too used to burbe laugh.gif I suspect that's more recognisable than Botchia anyway. Whereas Midge has been everywhere with this rebrand haha.

Hoping Botchia stays now! Amazing username imo!

Was the username Botchia inspired by Boccia, which is a precision ball sport according to wikipedia?
