Unterganger of the Year on DP.net (now a dead link)

The Unterganger of the Year award is a contest created in January 2016 by JennieParker87. The purpose is to celebrate an Unterganger who stood out a bit extra during the previous year (i.e. an Unterganger who has stood out in a particular year will receive the award in the beginning of the year after). As the name suggests, this contest only runs once a year.

Concept & Rules

On the 1st of January each year, a nomination process begins on Downfallparodies.net. Up to 3 Untergangers can be nominated by the same person, for a number of reasons. Maybe the Unterganger has contributed a lot to the community over the previous year, and/or made extra good parodies. All Untergangers who won the Unterganger of the Month title during the previous year are automatically nominated as well. It's not possible to win the title two years in a row.

When the nomination process ends after two weeks, the first round of voting starts. People can then vote for 2 nominated Untergangers. After one week, the top 5 will move on to the final round of voting. Then it's only possible to vote for one Unterganger. The one who has the most votes after one week, wins. The winner will be presented on JennieParker87's channel.

The following rules had to be observed when nominating Untergangers for the award:

  • No nominating or voting for oneself.
  • Only Untergangers who were active for at least 6 months during the previous year qualify for this award.

Controversies

In January 2016, when the top 5 had been selected for the final round of voting, Charizard took the lead at first. Hitler Rants Parodies, who felt that one Unterganger should not be able to win several major awards in the same year, changed the rules for the awards under his management. This includes the Unterganger Hall of Fame. Charizard, who wanted to have a chance to be inducted into the HoF, dropped out of the UotY contest. But many Untergangers disliked the new rules and expressed their concerns and suspicions.

JennieParker87 took the lead instead. Then, rather suddenly, Hitler Rants Parodies began getting a lot of votes. Some people thought it was suspicious, since many wrote in the comments why they voted for JennieParker87, thus they were considered legitimate votes, while only one such comment existed for HRP. People wondered how this could be.

HRP then decided to withdraw from the contest and he told JennieParker87 on Skype, that he wanted to remove the contest from the DP.net forum. So, JennieParker87 had no other choice but to close the contest a bit earlier than planned. Since she won the contest, she didn't feel comfortable making a result video about herself. She did however make a small announcement. But she expressed gratitude for the votes, taking it as a sign that her many efforts for the community during 2015 were appreciated.
