Before I started tallying these votes, I found myself wondering "is there some sort of easy way out to tally these votes?" Unfortunately, I couldn't think of a simple, easy way to do this, so I just sorta did it by hand. n_n I will now continue to find myself wondering how the other talliers (tallyers?) did this, and maybe one day I'll learn the secrets of my predecessors.
But for now, we must honor these winners, these best and favorites of the year 2014. The votes have been tallied through the long and grueling process of scrolling through all nominations or votes or whatever you want to call them, and the winners have been decided. Many sticky notes were used through this long and grueling process, so may those shredded sticky notes find another use in the future as they are recycled (or not really).
Without further ado, I present to you the winners of the 2014 URPG Awards!

[As a side note, when I was tallying up the scores, Monbrey and Smiles were head and head, and I was actually really hoping they would tie so that I could say something about polar opposites since Monbrey's always all "no, fuck you" and Smiles is all "YES I LOVE YOU <33333333" But they didn't. Sad face. :(]

Congratulations to all of the URPG members that won in this year's awards! :) All of the URPG members are wonderful!!
Now, of course, there's some people that we wish could be here with us today in URPG. They've unfortunately gone their separate ways from the URPG, though we dearly wish they'll return to us one day or at least just pop in and say hi. The following members are ones we all wish we could see again in URPG:
MAY YOU ALL COME BACK TO URPG AND SPEND TIME WITH US LOVELIES AGAIN!!! <33333333
Harry also wants everyone who left to come back to URPG, and Smores wants cool people back. [I guess we're not cool enough for him. ;~; It's okay though, we'll live. We coo'.] Maxie and Marius were also mentioned, but both of them were already back [and ironically voted in the awards] before the awards ended. :p IF THE AWARDS CAN BRING BACK TWO PEOPLE, CERTAINLY THEY CAN BRING BACK THE OTHER 25 PEOPLE IN THE ABOVE SPOILER?!??!?!
Of course, we have favorite Pokemon as well. There's Gallade and Starmie and Arcanine and Volcarona and Litwick and Weavile and Camerupt and Ledian and Charizard and a Mawile that'll eat your face and Skitty and the godly Bisharp and Aegislash and Ninetales and Bulbasaur and Diggersby tho and Mew and Murkrow and Crobat and Espeon and Mamoswine and Toxicroak!!! All those favorite Pokemon!! Of course there's also the ever appearing Husnain in the awards that's a favorite, but we already have enough of those. :p
Finally, we have some fond, fond memories from the past year in URPG. From Ash's Togekiss using Metronome in an FFA and rolling Explosion to an untimely death to Ash defeating Pidge in a long awaited battle for Champion status in the URPG, there's been a lot of memorable stuff in 2014 for URPG. There's Winter's ever famous (or infamous?!?!?) haxy as shit dice. We discovered that CommBA has no honor, according to mlouden03. There was the time Ash successfully used Metronome in an Elite Four battle; the dice must've pitied him after they gave him an Exploding Togekiss. There was the time Nitro Mega Evolved an Alakazam and used Role Play all in the same turn. We will never forget Stone Edge Metagross. Never forget. The explosions aren't limited to Togekiss using Metronome though because Derian's Glalie exploded in an FFA and subsequently KO'd Ash. :0 TinyChat sessions and the arguments and the agreements and liking FD's posts on social media!! Aegislash is a very fond memory for some of us. Maybe because there's some sort of illuminati connection there with Aegislash. AEGISLASH IS ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED??!?! WHO KNOWS. AWARDS ARE ILLUMINATI. AWARDS IS 6 LETTERS. ILLUMINATI. AYYYYY. Husnains don't just make an appearance in the URPG awards though, they appear in FFAs and use Imprison too!!! That... may have not been this year? OH WELL IT'S INCLUDED ANYWAYS. For some of us, we have fond memories of gym badges; getting the first gym badge is a very memorable thing!!! We've had our friends come and go, and those have resulted in some fond memories as well.
May 2015 URPG be active like that one time in 2014!!! This is also assuming Monbrey doesn't burn the place down. :p He rebuilt it in 2014, but can we rebuild again?! I guess if Harry never finds out, it won't matter!!
Hopefully giving y'all that voted some money will appease your desires to burn this place to the ground for the time being. If not, then you're 3k richer? The following people can claim 3k for voting!!!
