HERE'S AN EXTENSIVE RECAP ON HOW ALL THE VOTING WENT DOWN:

DESCRIPTION OF EACH AWARD:

Most Supportive Serena fan- (this individual goes over and beyond in setting the record straight. you can find this member on the GM boards fighting all the misconceptions, lies, and hatred aimed toward Serena.)

Most Supportive Venus fan- (this individual goes over and beyond in setting the record straight. you can find this member on the GM boards fighting all the misconceptions, lies, and hatred aimed toward Venus.)

Most Supportive Williams Sister fan- (this individual goes over and beyond in setting the record straight. you can find this member on the GM boards fighting all the misconceptions, lies, and hatred aimed toward both Venus and Serena.)

The "Highly Valued" Award- (This award goes to any member you want for any reason you like. The nominees will consist of posters who you generally hold in high regards for any reasons you deem worthy. Comments are encouraged for this particular category alongside your list of nominees.)

The "SUNSHINE" Award- (This award goes to the members you feel does a good job of lifting everyone's spirits... It could be a post, a comment, or perhaps a word of encouragement- anything that adds to the overall goodness, with regards to Venus and or Serena)

The "Humanitarian" Award- (This award is designed to say thank you to those members who are always willing lend a helping hand... providing avatars, posting links, providing pictures, creating new Williams forums, etc.. These individuals make life a lot less complicated and a lot more enjoyable.)

The "Philosophical" Decree- (This award is given to those posters who often use a lot of thought and analytical reasoning when passionately posting about Venus and or Serena. These are the posters that will point out inconsistencies and contradictions with regards to the "haters". They do a great job of articulating their thoughts which positively impact Venus and or Serena in this forum.)

"Freshman" Award- (This award goes to any individual who has less than 500 post whom you feel has made a positive contribution with regards to Venus and or Serena)

"Old-timer" Award- (This award goes to any individual who has more than 1000 posts whom you feel has made a positive contribution with regards to Venus and or Serena)

The "Spirit" Award- (This award is given to those posters who have a knack for lightheartedness, and constantly keep things fun. These posters have a good attitude a great sense of humor, and always help in keeping things from ever being too serious)

Special Shout-Out Award- (this is the only award given to any NON-MEMBER OF THE ROYAL COURT. these nominees might be fans of other players, but through their interactions with Royal Court members they are courteous and respectful)

Royal Court's Highest Honors: SJW and Rokkstarr (for future awards the Royal Court Founders, SJW and Rokkstarr will determine the winner(s) of this most prestigious of award. The first year of our awards ceremony this award must naturally go to the founders of The Royal Court)

We have to talk about this first. Someone else may want to do it. I don't want to deprive someone else of this pleasure.
