    How to sum up this year on MAP? Activity-wise the site has contracted but I feel we're a better site from that. More people have been jumping into educated discussions about other styles and we've become more of a community because of it. At the same time, as proven in this thread, we can take time to remember those who aren't with us as a community should. It's been a great year and I'm sure Aegis and Saz will agree with me that its been a pleasure leading this site for the last twelve months and we're all looking forward to another year of mayhem and learning - MAP style!

    Poignant opening speech over, its time to reveal who has won what in this year's MAP Awards. In no particular order...

    Unfortunately, just as last year's awards were ending, another MAPer passed away. Athleng Nordic had a wicked sense of humour and was a good friend to a lot of MAPers, especially those he visited on his trip to the UK. In memory, a Special MAP Award goes to Athleng Nordic.

    Congratulations to all who won, commiserations to those who didn't and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all from the MAP Team :)

    Now eat, drink and be merry! :D

    An award just for choosing a rather humorous name! What's the world coming to? It's a conspiracy.

    Well done everyone.
