  • Columnist of the Quarter (July - September 2021) Voting - OPEN NOW

    Greetings CF!

    By now you should all know that we have moved from Columnist of the Month to Columnist of the Quarter. Looking back these last three months it has been pretty quite around here but there have still been some strong pieces of writing posted up and strong efforts from the writers posting.


    The winner of the Columnist of the Quarter contest will receive the prize of having one column posted on the main page of

    The Winner of Column of the Quarter will have that column posted on the main page.

    1) The winner of Columnist of the Quarter is determined by which of the eligible columnists receives the largest amount of votes within the allotted voting period.

    2). No voting for yourself. Don’t be a knob.

    3). You must vote for Columnist of the Quarter to be eligible to win. Should the person with the most votes not place a vote during the allotted timeframe, said person will be disqualified and the first runner up in terms of number of votes gained will be named the winner. One need not place a vote to be awarded single Column of the Month.

    4). A columnist must have posted at least one column during the allotted time period in order to be eligible. Duh.

    5). When voting, please name both the columnist and, if applicable, the title of their ongoing series in a bold and easily determined fashion. Makes it easier on us old mod folk to more clearly discern the votes, what with our cataracts and such.

    6). Main page writers are ineligible to win either the Columnist or Column awards. The exception to this is if they were not called up until the next month. For instance, a writer who wrote stuff in April and was called up on May 3rd would still be eligible to win the April Columnist contest. The prize would just be a bit pointless, I guess. The reason that main page writers are ineligible to win the single Column award is simply because they could, and often do, post said column simultaneously on the main page. This is a CF award, so only CF writers are considered.

    7). Please refrain from editing your vote once it is placed, so as to not fuck up the tally. Some circumstances, such as a noob vote for a main pager, are the only loopholes to this one and will be pointed out and handled by a moderator.

    8). If a candidate is caught campaigning for CotQ, either publicly or privately via PM or social media, they will be disqualified and quite possibly banned. Do your selling through your writing. Begging is lame.

    9). Columns about columns (such as the State of the CF or End of Year CF Awards) are not eligible for COTQ consideration and will not be counted in favour of their respective authors in the final tally for the month.

    10). As it pertains to collaborations, there are a few variations that require clarification.
    a) If it's a "tag team" style "traditional" collaboration (i.e.: "anonymous and glamourous' Adventures in Wrestling" or 'Plan and Maverick’s 100 reasons why Bret Hart is the best) then both members of the team must vote in order to claim victory as a team.
    b) If a single columnist gathers a group of individuals for a "roundtable" collab, only the organizer of said series must vote in order to claim victory. For instance, if Anonymous wants to break down the Greatest Moments of Rikishi’s Ass and asks two of his pals to help out, only Anonymous needs to vote in order to win the award should he garner enough votes since he is the blatant driving force, as opposed to the give and take equality of a "tag team" collab.

    For the voters, if you wish to specifically vote for a "traditional" collab team, name both writers. If you wish to honour a "roundtable" collab, just name the organizer of said collab.

    11) You cannot vote for a former main page writer until said writer is at least 3 months removed from their main page stint at the time of the voting period. For instance, if Sir Sam just left his main page spot in January and resumed writing in the CF, he is not eligible to win CotQ until the Q2 contest. This rule is included simply because it's kind of stupid to award a main page column to a writer who just gave up a gig in which the point was to post columns on the main page. If they wanted to be on the main page then they probably would've, you know, stayed on the main page. We get that the CF has a certain allure, what with the sense of community and ability to win awards from one's peers and all that, but let us not forget the reason why the CF exists in the first place. It's not to placate egos by handing out peer determined awards, it's to find writers for the Lords of Pain main page. If you've had that spot and chose to leave it, perhaps it's time that someone else got the opportunity to prove why they deserve a shot. This rule is only applicable to the COLUMNIST vote, not the single COLUMN vote.

    12). In the event of a tie going to decide with a run-off rather than a one-column shootout to decide any ties.

    Voting for Column and Columnist will close on the 20th of September 2021 at 23:59 AEDT.

      Gotta hand my vote to Don Franc for some damn good consistent content in thin times. For individual, I think I gotta go with Mavsman and his Honeymoon piece.

          Absolutely picking Don for this one, just for sheer output. Not to mention the quality of it too. He really deserves the win.
          The worst PPV ever is coming soon.

            Gona give this an extra 24 hours and to see if Donny gets a vote in.

              Yo, I'm not sure if I made it time!

              Columnist: Spinmaster & Mizzie

              Column: What AEW Must Not Do With CM Punk - Benny


              • #8
                By my count you're in time. Though I don't think you're vote for Benny counts because that was settled prior to the extension?

                One for Mizzie/Sam to rule on but as I understand it, rather than having a tie for the column we now have two clear winners (barring any further votes in the next hour and ten minutes)

                  Congrats Don and Mavs.Thanks for the couple votes, fellas. If I can write a column and it be remembered by even two people, then that’s good enough for me.

                      Bravo to Don and Mavs indeed, well deserving winners and some great contributions even in a thin time such as this, I always enjoy reading. Props to all vote getters, including my own dear Spinmaster who is having a bit of a rough go at the moment.
