I'd like to put forward Cyriak A.K.A. Mutated Monty
For making a living out of mindfuck animations that hurt my brain yet tickle my mind at the same time. Robogran is utter genius.

As Professor K below has made his rationale clear...
instead of Jessie I'd say Cyriak (Mutated Monty). I have never ever seen anything of the level of jaw-dropping mentalness that I imagine (not having been into serious loldrugs at any time) is like the crazy idea of hallucinations that people claim they do on acid. And I haven't even had to spend a pfenig to see them. Now when I see his work on TV (Dave Gorman's Genius, to name but one thing) I think- hey, I know the guy who did that. Vaguely.

I appreciate Jeccius' sentiment a few posts below...
...but I don't think Jess would want to be person of the year.

Instead I'd like to nominate all you lot, for all your support, help, icon donations and everything else this year.

This man

For carrying out an action that lead to the most unlikely sentence ever being written out in the international press.

God bless that paragon of scientific endeavour.

I vote for Elvis Weathercock.
He's one of the few b3tans still churning out the kind of silly, meaningless yet well done frame by frame photoshop gifs that I started coming to b3ta to look at 5 years ago.

From a purely b3tan perspective
Amorous Badger. Say what you like about him (and many do), he seems to me to have changed the face of QOTW. Back when I first started looking at b3ta, as a lurker, a heck of a lot of answers involved what I can only think of as bragging or wank-fantasies. These ranged from dull to frankly embarrassing.

I maybe don't approve of his methods but I do approve of his results. The subtext to many posts was "don't you wish you were me?", and now, although people may not admit it, they don't bait the Badger. There's been an all-around realisation that you can tell a story about your achievements without sounding like a swaggering bellend.

Say what you will, but if you want to read about other people having fantastic sex there's a great big internet full of sites for just that. I like the idea that b3ta is full of humans just like any other pale sweaty nerd.

Troll he may be, but I like what he's done with the place.

Amorous Badger
and the fail archive.

Despite his manifest handicaps, the Badger works tirelessly to mock, denigrate or otherwise disparage anyone posting something on QOTW that doesn't meet his low standards. Think of the work he puts in..

~~~~~~Wavy Lines~~~~~

Badger is sitting at his PC in his underpants. His little face is screwed up in concentration. The tip of his tongue is poking out of the corner of his lips as he struggles to bend the computer to his will.

".............OK.....I can do this.........CUT!........"

He flicks to a new tab in Firefox. Positions the mouse.....

"..........PASTE!........YAY!!! I did it!"

He does a little dance of victory around his squalid bedroom.

"OK. Only another 85 words to go and I got that fucker nailed....."

I'm sorry but this is such a no brainer.
How could it ever be anyone else but the lovely Jessie?! Apologies if this has been said before.
