On the plus side I didn't win this, this year...

*HaaTa has been a terrible member of the community this year, with all his secretive stuff starting in April; so he doesn't believe himself deserving of this award...*

I was indeed surprised as I expected it to be silver!

As you can see from the pictures, the WASD with arrows likes it, but LOD has its usual look of disapproval!
