But how many of these award lists give awards to the runners and website users themselves? So we decided to put together the Gametiime Runner Awards — a list of awards for and about you… because — well, who says we can’t!?
We’re going no frills for this award list — no voting, no hoopla — just a fun, light-hearted, from-the-heart list of many of you. It’s our way of recognizing and thanking you for all you’ve done this year — whether you’ve realized or not. And, if you’re reading this but weren’t included, believe us, we appreciate you too! Our community is everything.
Perhaps, at some point, we’ll get super-sophisticated about voting and rules and blah blah blah, but in the meantime, enjoy and share with your friends if you see their names! :)
