Alright guys here it is, the complete weekly listing for last year. Imo, the weekly is the best scale because as I've said before, it usually takes more than a day for a members creation or contribution to the site to be fully recognize/disseminated. Yet there's still plenty of slots > 208 in total and it's seems like there's a large variety of members up here. So a big congrats to you if you ever made it up into the top 4 for an entire week

The Nominations are now OPEN!
The greatest time of year has arrived, the Trixies are upon us and the nominations have officially opened. The Trixies are a celebration of all types of community contributions, ranging from STEX uploads to CJs, all the way to forum posts. It's the perfect opportunity to celebrate all the amazing content shared over the past two years, and give a special 'thanks' to your fellow members.
We last held the Trixies for the year 2014, so understandably, we have a lot to catch up on. This year things are little different. We won't be holding just one ceremony, but two at the same time: One each for 2015 and 2016. Since we last held the Trixies Simtropolis has been through a lot of change, which unfortunately means we’ve had to change the way were conducting the nominations this year. However, we think these changes will make it easier for you guys to nominate members, and continue to nominate throughout the nominations period.
The biggest difference is that you will be posting your nominations on the forums. Don’t worry though, no one apart from the admins will be able to see your nominations, just like it was before! Let’s go through how this is all going to work.
Nominations Close on April 3rd
How To Nominate
As we’ve mentioned before, nominating members for awards will be a little different this year. Read the guides below to know how you are going to be nominating members for awards this year, and take note of some slight rule changes which will allow you to nominate members for multiple awards.
Where To Nominate
This year, all your nominations will be submitted as posts in the forum linked below.
Submit Trixie Nominations Here!
This forum behaves differently from every other forum on Simtropolis. No one else can see any of the posts or topics you create within it. In lieu of our traditional nominations system, which is now incompatible with ST, this will be where all of your nominations are submitted this year. This comes with some great benefits though! You’ll be able to see all of your nominations at all times, so you can remember what you have nominated and who you have nominated, and you’ll be able to edit these at any time just in case you nominated someone for the wrong award.
It may feel a bit weird at first, but trust us that only admins will see your nominations.
Submitting and Formatting your Nominations
Since everything has changed, how will you be submitting nominations? Its easy, just follow our guide below!
1. Firstly, take a look through the List of Trixie Awards for 2015 - 2016.
2. You’ll first find an award which you want to nominate someone for and copy its award title.
3. From there navigate to the Submit Trixie Nominations Here! forum and create a new topic.
4. Paste the award title into the topic title box, and add a couple of tags:
The name of the member you are nominating. The year you are nominating them for.
5. Then in your post, please include the following information:
The Title of the award. Who you are nominating. The Year you are nominating this award for. A short Description as to why you think they deserve this award.
To help ensure you include these details, feel free to copy and paste the following template into your posts to match the guidelines:
Don’t forget to add this info for each of your nominations, or else they may not be counted.
I’ll repeat these briefly below:
Topic Title: The Award Title. Tags: Nominated member, and Year.
Post Text: Award Title, Member Name, Year, Short Description.
To submit another nomination, simply start another topic.
Ceremonies for both 2015 and 2016
We last held the Trixies for the year 2014, and due to issues we weren’t able to open up the nominations last year for 2015’s content. During these nominations we invite you to nominate content from 2015 as well as 2016. In the end, we aren't just holding one ceremony, but two at the same time: One each for 2015 and 2016.
During the run up to the nominations opening we’ve had a series of discussions, interviews, and retrospectives aiming to highlight content from 2015 and 2016 in the hopes that you won’t forget what has been created during those years.
This is why it is important for you to distinguish what year you are nominating a member for.
This year we are making a slight change to how many times you can nominate a member. Traditionally you could only nominate any given member for one award. But this time, this rule is being expanded. It used to be that someone would only create amazing buildings, or only write beautiful CJs. However, now we have members who cover lots of different parts of the site, for the previous Trixies it was increasingly difficult to nominate them for just one award.
This time we are making the change to allow you to nominate a member for up to 3 different awards in both 2015 and 2016. We hope that you submit multiple nominations for a single member to awards in different sections of the Trixies, but we aren't making that a specific rule as there are awards in sections which relate to very different skill sets. Use this new ability wisely...
Cities: Skylines in the Trixies
Over the past two years we’ve seen the release of a new game which has swept Simtropolis, Cities: Skylines. In the past we’ve never had another city building game which made as much impact on our community as SimCity 4 originally did, so this is the first time the Trixies have had to accommodate another game. You’ll notice that most of the descriptions for awards no longer call out any specific game, that is because all of these awards are intended to be relatable to both games.
When nominating, remember the great content created for both games these previous two years, rather than the content from a single game.
Multiple or single threads for nominations?
Posting each nomination in its own thread is preferred, as this helps with the processing.
Really though, it's up to you. If posting in a single thread is easier for you to manage or edit, that's perfectly fine. At the end of nominations, the Llama Crew will attempt to count anything inside the forum.
For both years, how many nominations per user?
In each year, you may nominate any individual member up to 3 times.
So this means for both 2015 & 2016 combined, you could nominate someone up to 6 times.
Who can I nominate?
Any Simtropolis user (member or staff) can be nominated for any award. The processing will determine whether a given user is eligible.
How many custom "Ad Hoc" awards may I nominate?
As many as you'd like!
Feel free to be creative with the title & description if a default award isn't suitable for what you have in mind.
Is there a limit to how many nominations I can submit?
Yes, the sky.
We hope you have a great Trixies...
And remember, Nominate early and Nominate Often!
Trixies 2015 - 2016 Default Awards List -
Trixies 2015 - 2016 are upon us, and its time to start submitting your nominations. Listed below are the default awards we are suggesting you nominate members for this time. There are more here than we have included in previous years, this was obtained by discussion with the community and further narrowed down by staff discussion. Each category, Custom Content, City Journals and Community is broken down into three subsections, this will help you in narrowing down which sections you are most involved with. Visit the Nominations Guidelines topic on how nominating has changed this year.
