The 2022 Fundie of the Year awards blog

It’s the 2022 Fundie of the Year awards, that time of year when we’re grateful for the insufferable fanatics in our lives and in the wider world.

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 in the form of a link. For example, if I wanted to nominate Maltose for best sugar molecule, I’d write this:

@pyro

[b]Best sugar molecule: maltose[/b]

For best taste and best method of production.

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.
