Welcome to the 1st (Annual?) Lua Scripting Awards! These are designed to recognize (and award) the coolest people in the Lua Scripting community, those that give so much to Garry’s Mod that they deserve something in return.
Super Scripter: Overv
Awesome Addon: PAC2 (CapsAdmin)
Great Gamemode: TF2 Gamemode (_Kilburn)
Congratulations to this year’s winners!
1. Super Scripter
The Super Scripter is the Lua scripter who creates the best scripts, helps the most people, and is overall a really awesome person in the community.
There are no requirements here. Anyone can be nominated for Super Scripter. It would be nice if they were still active to accept their award.
2. Awesome Addon
The Awesome Addon is any sort of script that is awesome, in more or less words. It can be something that was incredibly useful, like the famous “Yes Mod”, or something that just blew your mind.
The script can be released or un-released. You could have posted one screenshot of it in the WAYWO thread and then kept moving – a script is a script, so whatever works. However, it must have been made/updated within the past year, so basically after the Fretta Contest was over.
3. Great Gamemode
The Great Gamemode is a game that you love so much you felt you had to nominate. I feel this category is particlarly important because there’s a crapton of work that goes into good gamemodes. Same rules apply as best script.
Community recognition and eternal fame is great and all, but what’s the use without money?
The first place winners will receive $200+ worth of Steam games of their choice (note: more donators = more money)! The second and third place winners will get a spot in the Hall of Fame and an internet cookie.
If any others would like to donate anything from their cat Muffles to their huge inheritance, it would be greatly appreciated and you’ll get an honorable mention.

[li]In order to nominate a coder or a script, either post here or send me a private message.
