We are delighted to be able to announce the results of the Wikivorce Awards 2010.
Thank you to all the members who voted in our poll.
The voting was very close in many of the categories and we have decided to declare joint winners in several cases:
Best Professional Advisor - joint winners:
|Charles is a huge asset to the community and provides seemingly limitless amounts of advice on divorce and working with solicitors, with a particular depth of knowledge in legal costs.||TBagpuss contributes excellent family law advice on the forums on an almost daily basis, we are extremely lucky to have her as part of our community.|
Best Advice in Forum (non-professionals) - joint winners:
|Winner:||Dukey||Winner:||Little Mr Mike|
|Dukey is ever present on our advice forums and is the perfect example of someone who has stayed on to pass on his new found knowledge after his own case completed.||Mike has made an extraordinary contribution to the Wikivorce forum. He offered support and advice to thousands of our members over the last 3 years.|
Best Advice in Forum (Scotland) - joint winners:
|Fiona is the most prolific poster on the forum in Wikivorce history and this award is very well deserved. Although this award is for her Scotland contributions she has provided excellent advice to hundreds if not thousands of our English members too.||Ruby has provided exceptional support to our Scottish members both in her volunteer role as Head of Wikivorce Scotland and as a caring, considerate member of our community.|
Most Supportive in Forum - joint winners:
|You can always rely on Mitchum to offer empathy and support to those members who are struggling to cope with their current situation. She has helped hundreds of Wikivorce members by sharing her experiences and her journey through both her forum posts and her blog.||NellNoRegrets has been an outstanding contributor on the Wikivorce forum with over 4000 posts in a little over 2 years. She is always supportive and understanding. Her advice and support is very much appreciated by the hundreds of people she has helped.|
Most Uplifting member:
|Kimmi fully deserved to be voted the most uplifting member. In the 18 months she has been a member she has been a constant source of hope and positivity through her forums posts and blogs.|
Most Supportive in Chat - joint winners:
|As well as her role as editor of Wikizine, Shezi can often be found offering support and a friendly ear to new members in the Wikivorce chat rooms, and this award is very well deserved.||Its no suprise that so many of you voted for Kittysparkles, she makes the chat room a warm and welcoming place which is hugely appreciated by fellow Wikichatters.|
Most Welcoming in Chat - joint winners:
|As many of you know, Tets works hard on technical support behind the scenes to keep Wikivorce up and running. He is also ever present in the chat room and based on the votes cast our members clearly value the support he offers so willingly.||The joint winner of this award is Realdad who many of you recognised for his enthusiasm and the warm welcome he offers those venturing into the chat rooms for the first time. He has also worked hard to organise the upcoming Wikievent in November.|
|In most of the award categories the voting was very close - hence the joint winners. But the title of funniest Wiki member went to Hawaythelads by a landslide. Thanks for keeping us smiling Haway :)|
Best Blogger - joint winners:
On behalf of all the members of Wikivorce I would like to thank all of the award winners for the tremendous contribution that they have made to the thousands of members going through this difficult process.
As a very small token of our appreciation we would like to present a £25 Amazon gift certificate to each award winner.
