It's that time! Time to announce the winners of the 2021 OTM Community Awards. Before we get into the winners, I want to thank the community for the great response to the awards this year. We had a lot of great nominees, and we had a lot of votes. The response made this year's Community Awards really a great thing.
I also want to stress that there really are no losers. Every nominee was a well deserved nominee, and you should be honored that this community recognized your value enough to even nominate you. A case could be made for each and every one of you as the winner of each award.
One other note before we get into the awards and the winner. As the awards organizer, I wanted to stay impartial and not have an impact on the awards themselves. That is why I did not nominate anyone even though I could think of several people who certainly merited nomination who weren't. (For example, as much as Tenspro and I have butted heads in the past over perspective, I've never once questioned his baseball knowledge and would not have batted an eye had he been nominated for Most Knowledgeable, and I was a little surprised he wasn't.) I also did not vote. I'm not sure if I would have voted had there been a tie, but thankfully you guys gave me clear winners in every award so I didn't have to make that decision, and thus I was able to remain as completely impartial as I wanted to be. :)
Now, let's get into the awards themselves!
For each award, I will list the nominees in order of number of votes, and the winner will be in bold type at the top.
