The Sixteenth Annual People's Choice Awards

Welcome to the Sixteenth Annual People's Choice Awards (also known as The Deadlies)!

Yes it's that time of year again! The time where the community gets to have their say in the best DROD events of 2019. The community continued its endless march of producing a neverending stream of exceptionally high quality content.

What follows owes a great deal to gamer_extreme_101, RoboBob3000, CuriousShyRabbit, Trickster, RabidChild and Dying Flutchman, all of whom put on this awards show in past years and helped to define the rules and categories.

So how does voting work? Here's the lowdown:
* You can vote for ONE AND ONLY ONE option in EACH category.
* There is the option in each category to not vote if you do not wish to cast a vote for anybody in particular.
* All of your votes must be submitted at the same time. You only get one opportunity to vote, so choose carefully!
* If you choose to view the results before voting, YOU WILL FORFEIT YOUR ABILITY TO CAST A VOTE! So don't do that if you wish to cast any votes.
* You are allowed to vote for yourself and your own holds if you wish.
* Voting will end on the 28th July (we need some spare days in case there are tiebreakers), so you have 4 weeks to play any holds that you've yet to try.


Here is a list in alphabetical order of all of the holds released this year:

DROD
* 10 easy puzzles in a toilet by chesse20
* Architecture Salon by jokokoe
* Arky's Revenge Compilation by Dragon Fogel (Collaboration)
* Bongthro Begins by azb
* Dugonium by Dying Flutchman
* Floating Friendship Facility by Bent
* Immolation by Xindaris
* King Dugan's Alternate Reality by hyperme (Collaboration)
* King Nareik's Dungeon by kieranmillar
* Make it More Challenging by Dragon Fogel (Collaboration)
* Quick Lunch Break Hold #4 by disoriented
* Quick Lunch Break Hold #5 by disoriented
* Redoubtable Reach by Someone Else
* Sequel Contest Compilation by Xindaris (Collaboration)
* Special Delivery by kieranmillar
* The Island of Doctor More-So by Dying Flutchman
* The Letter W by PigmyWubba
* The Oceanic Oligarchy by azb
* The Swap-O-Tron by Dying Flutchman
* The Wheelhouse by Xindaris
* Time After Time by Chaco
* Unchained Malady by Dying Flutchman (Collaboration)

DROD RPG
* Castle by 1stCortez
* Escape from Monster Jail! by Xindaris
* Minimal Designs by Professor Tio

The 15 award categories are:

1. Best Custom Game Element
Once upon a time this award was awarded to the hold with the best custom element. These days, there are so many more custom elements released, with many holds containing multiple elements, that we now vote on individual elements instead. Which was your favourite?

2. Design Excellence in a Modification or Addition
This award is for the best addition to DROD that is not a hold. This is mostly in the form of a graphical mod or new room style, but can also include utilities.
Note: this year there is only one eligible candidate, and so there will be no vote.

3. Technical Design Excellence in Scripting
This award is for the hold with the best overall scripting. What this means is up to the voter, it can be for cutscenes, custom elements, challenges, and so on. With scripting, the possibilities are endless!

4. Technical Design Excellence in Layout and Aesthetics
Making a good hold isn't just about good puzzles, aesthetics are also very important! Which hold had the best aesthetics? This can be in terms of level layouts, lighting, a unique visual style, or anything at all that was pleasing to your eye.
Note: You may find the map.php tool useful.

5. Technical Design Excellence in Concept
This award is to recognise those who come up with something unique in their holds. Ranging from general puzzle concepts to entire custom elements, if any hold this year made you think "Wow, what a cool idea!" then it will be the perfect candidate for this award.

6. Creative Design Excellence in Storyline
This award is for the hold with the best storyline.

7. Creative Design Excellence in Difficulty
This award is for the best difficult hold. Whether this means it was the best hold to handle a high difficulty, or the most fun while being hard, or any other interpretation, is up to you. Only holds or level sets with an average vote of 7 or more "brains" (at the time the stats were collected) are eligible for this award.

8. Creative Design Excellence in Entertainment
This award is for the best hold that isn't very difficult. Being easy doesn't mean boring, which hold do you think worked best without resorting to extreme difficulty? Only holds or level sets with an average vote of less than 7 "brains" (at the time the stats were collected) are eligible for this award.

9. DROD Hold of the Year
This award is for the best DROD hold published in 2019.

10. DROD RPG Level Set of the Year
This award is for the best DROD RPG level set published in 2019.

11. Best Voice Artist in a Distinct Role
This award is for the best voice acting in a hold published in 2017.
Note: this year there is only one eligible candidate, and so there will be no vote.

12. Novice Architect Award
Which new architect was the best? To be eligible for this award, an architect must have released his or her first SOLO hold this year, any previous contribution to a collaborative hold does not count.

13. Erik Hermansen Award for Lifetime Architectural Achievement
This award is for architects who have been creating great holds for years. To create one good hold requires creativity and skill. But to keep on creating good holds, year after year, requires special dedication and inspiration, well worthy of an award. This award is so prestigious, it can only be won once in a lifetime. Previous winners of the Erik Hermansen Award are:
* Doom (2006)
* LarryMurk (2007)
* Jacob (2008)
* BoyBlue (2009)
* Rheb (2010)
* Chaco (2011)
* Dischorran (2012)
* mxvladi (2013)
* blorx1 (2014)
* Jutt (2015)
* Jeff_Ray... (2016)
* kieranmillar (2017)
* disoriented (2018)
Architects who have not previously won this award, published their first stand-alone (non-compilation) hold or level set in 2015 or earlier, have published at least one stand-alone hold or level set in 2017, and have created at least four stand-alone holds or level sets that each have an average vote of 7.0 or higher "fun" (at the time the stats were collected) are eligible for this award.
Note: Here are links to each nominee's holds:
* Someone Else (RPG)
* Xindaris (RPG)

14. Best Community Contributor
The DROD community receives a number of excellent contributions from the community that are not necessarily directly related to architecture. This award is here to celebrate and honour those who make the DROD community a better place in their own ways. This award is entirely nomination driven and members are eligible for any reason provided somebody else nominates them.
Here are this year's candidates, along with an abridged list of the reasons why they were nominated:
* Nuntar - Testing, overseeing contests, organizing the Entry Point community project
* Schik - Puts in a lot of work to keep everything running

15. Best DROD Video Presentation
Playing DROD isn't the only way you can enjoy DROD, you can watch other people enjoy it too! This award celebrates the Let's Plays and live streams about DROD.
Here are links to each Let's Player's Youtube/Twitch channel:
* Chaco (Leylite)
* kieranmillar
* mauvebutterfly
* Rabscuttle
* ThemsAllTook (Alex Diener)
* Xindaris

Happy voting!
