I can see why I wasn't nominated for community MVP as I was excommunicated for a quarter of the year. It really puts you in the backseat.
As long as I'm running the Carnies, I decline the nominations.
I mean, someone did nominate you for Geek of the Year...
My pleasure, y'all.
Friend Serene, you were always helpful and not a smarky cynic in your responses to members in this community last year. Your kindness and positive energy are much needed at times in this phoney business. You are the hero we need, but not the one we deserve.
It is 2020. People can always feel free to play the "the content is good, it's here, we will make little to zero attempts to come to you" move, because I'm a fan of people making something that appeals to who it appeals to and doesn't shape itself for other people. Even if I wanted to watch more ethical wrestling, I can get my fill with EVE and New Japan and call it a fucking day. IF I don't pass on wrestling altogether. You are not owed my attention.
Not just a nomination; he got 8.1% of the votes for doing nothing spectacularly geeky in 2019.
You always come off as a nice person
I think AJ, Nak and BC had a huge hand in helping with njpw. Then the omega matchesIt is 2020.

There's a reason NJPW is far and away the biggest Japanese promotion in America, and there's a reason Stardom has more Western subscribers than Japanese. I've watched several DDT and TJPW shows. I thought Peter Pan was good; that Asuka single light-tube death match is one of my favorite matches of 2019. But ultimately more often than not it feels like a chore, sifting through a largely Japanese website and a Twitter account and a fan blog.
They don't HAVE to make their content more welcoming to English speaking foreign people. But when they don't, I don't really wanna hear any complaints about how "people should be watching this".
Honestly I just appreciate a non-snarky voice that isn't always playing a character.
You know what else helps? English commentary. Promos translated in English on YouTube. It's SO fucking easy to follow, the only reason you wouldn't is you just don't like the promotion.
Going by the 6.5% that voted for me I can extrapolate that that is how much people here watch lucha. Hope this year more people join as long as AAA keeps the quality.PART 3 OF THE 2019 CARNY AWARDS RESULTS! Part 1 is here. Part 2 is here. Again, I split the results up to avoid posting too many gifs at once.

Sweeney Swift: 12.2%
Devenir Ácrata: 6.5%
Friend Serene's gimmick of optimism held true through a dark 2019. Thank you all for making this such an entertaining community, you bunch of marks and smart marks who don't know they're still marks.
Oh, good. Maybe she'll join the Nightmare Collective with that gimmick.
She was always "The Amazing Grace" Sadie Gibbs
I’m not fighting you on this, it’s your preference. But iirc njpw didn’t move to full time English commentary until 2017 or 2018, it was just for certain events. They even started to retroactively add some to older bigger events.
