how can you have a nominee when it's not even 2024 yet?

It is 2024 now! You won WANer of the year 2999 and it certainly isn’t 2099 yet. I don’t make the rules, it’s just how things are. ;)

Perhaps one of the benefits of being current WANer of the year is that I'll get to open the new Top Tapes, once refurbished.

I won it in 2009 and I could barely keep up with the rush: interviews, freebies, signing sessions, opening supermarkets. After a year of non stop drug fuelled parties and bribing politicians i went to bed for three months to recover. 15 years on I still like to just sit quietly with a cup of tea and paint gentle watercolour landscapes. Being WANer if the year was a life changing experience, it was wonderful.

Silent Rob, I suspect you won at this site's zenith, when money and lascivious Cambridge ways were applauded. I plan to enjoy my time, potentially fending of hackers rather than the parties and drugs as you so deftly appear to have managed your way through.

I came here by mistake trying to find info about the Sea Cadet Hall and there have only been 4 threads in the 9 years I've been a member: Name and shame; WANer of the year; Death Cull; Fantasy football.

I'd like to vote for you as WANer 2024, you can lead an art class down by the riverside, instead of a victory parade through Eddington, where we can all eat artisan bread, and drink oat milk coffee before everything is housed over.

Ah yea, the heady days of 2008, you could come back after a couple of hours and the mornings posts had disappeared from the front page and replaced by 20 new ones.

Thanks for the vote, I will consider the art class, I live quite close to Riverside.

I vote JetSetWilly as WANer of the year, they haven’t won it before and I was feeling uncomfortable being the only vote so far.

Silent Rob one vote
JetSetWilly one vote
